Choices Desktop prototypes

I’ve been planning to offer a Desktop variant of the Choices module for quite some time now, but other projects took priority. However, a customer got tired of waiting for me and ordered a custom unit (this is what happened with the Infernal Noise Machine as well). When I make prototype units I always order extra PCBs – just in case of random carnage and they’re cheaper that way – so why not see if anyone else is interested?

I haven’t finished the custom order yet, and his enclosure is a one-off model, but here are the drawings for the enclosure style that will be used for the rest: (click on image for larger version)

In addition to the standard features of the Choices eurorack module, the CH-D prototype has the following:

  • 1/4″ Switchraft jacks instead of 3.5mm jacks
  • All electro-mechanical components are long-life versions (100,000 rotation pots, 50,000 or higher cycle switches and jacks)
  • X-Y and X+Y outputs
  • Greatly enlarged control layout for easy, comfortable use
  • Internal power supply with wall adapter

The Trigger and Gate outputs are set for 0V-+8V on the custom unit to accommodate most 5U systems and Moog keyboards, but I can set them to output anything between -11.5V and +11.5V.
Knobs are the same as those used on the INM.
The enclosures are heavy-gauge aluminum housings from Hammond.

They are $250.00 each with the features listed. Lead time is currently 2-4 weeks. I have enough parts for three of these for now.
I have no problem with further customizations, but they will affect he price and lead time. As these are prototypes. the graphics will be overlays or something similar, but I’ll do my best to see that they are sufficiently durable. It is also likely that final graphics may be different than shown in the above image – nothing major, but I may tweak them a tad here and there.

A little bit later, I received another custom order, but for a dual version, which sounded like a lot of fun. And so there is also the CH-2D now.

Same situation as with the CH-D: Why build just one when I could build five? So there are four of these available for order: (click on image for larger version)

Since there were two joysticks, that meant even more output combinations – far too many – thus the function rotary switch, leading to one jack in the rear.

This one is designed for use with Serge systems (±5V Trigger and Gate, audio output limiting to ±7.5V max) but, again, customizations are welcome. Same stipulations as with the CH-D.

These start at $350, with a 4-6 week leadtime.

Orders are being accepted now. If you are interested, either email me at the flight@ address, or place the order via PayPal with the paypal@ email address – the other part being flightofharmony.com.

I would also love to hear any suggestions or ideas that any of you may have for these. This was a custom design, so it may lack things that you feel are important. Let me know what you think!

Choices Desktop prototypes available!

More products in stock.

We’re back in action at last! Had a lot of fun going to the Square Waves Festival in Vancouver B.C. this weekend; it was nice to finally meet so many of you that I had only known online previously.

We also have most items back in stock – pretty much everything except for Choices modules (which will be back in a week or two, however) – including the Infernal Noise Machine that was shown at the Square Waves festival. This I.N.M. is the first of the next run, of which more will be available in the coming month – both from us and several dealers worldwide.

Many thanks to our customers who were at Square Waves – your support and appreciation makes a huge difference to us!

Sorry everyone, but it looks like I have to take some time off this week due to an ear infection. I’ll be back to work as soon as possible.

1/4″ jacks are in.

1/4″ jacks are back in stock for those buying Barebones Packs for 5U and other 1/4″ systems.

Got some really nice ones this time around: Switchcraft 112A mono NC-switched Hi-D enclosed jacks, but with all metal components gold-plated (not including panel nut or washer though).

Other than that, we’re just busy as hell filling dealer and individual orders, hence all the silence. But please, do not hesitate to contact us with any questions!

Back again!

Hi!

Sorry (once again) for the long silence, but we’ve been busy with a lot of dealer orders. The bulk of them have been finished and shipped, so you should see f(h) modules showing up on their shelves very soon, including the new POWER and V’Amp modules.

Other good news: Joysticks are finally back in stock, so the Choices module is once again available and is also on its way to dealers.

There have also been quite a few changes to this website, including a shopping cart so you can order direct from us. We’re still trying to figure out how to best use the cart, so there will be some changes made from time to time, but it works quite well. If you are interested in something that is out of stock, just let us know! We can always put an item together for you.

Okay, back to the bench. Thanks for supporting us!
