Lines Partial Kit

Meng Qi Lines Kit - a tactile 4 x 4 matrix mixer in a DIY Eurorack kit.

This is for a partial kit in the Eurorack format. It includes a PCB, panel, springs and ALL hardware. You'll need to supply the electronic components.

Availability: In stock




Lines takes another approach of control than expressive cv generation, it's a tactile patching interface. Your patch is now linked to your muscle memory, as swift as your movements.

Diagonal layout ensures ultimate versatility with easy hand shapes; +5V normalled to input 1/3, -5V normalled to input 2/4; spread and divide an input signal by routing it to multiple outputs; bi-color LEDs display signals of each output.

A few things missing from the build notesReview by clarke
Great module. The tension on the springs is very light, so a lot of modulation is possible with just a few tiny, expressive movements. There is a little bit of crosstalk between channels, but the module is so fun to play it more than makes up for it.

The kit itself leaves a few things to figure out, which I hope to cover here.

Missing from the BOM:

- 4 3M nuts (available at most hardware stores)
- 1 SMD 1*4 2.54 female header, like this (but you'll have to trim it):

I swapped out the (hard to find) 50k 1% resistors with 47k and the module works fine.

Because the SMD female header is missing from the BOM, it is not very clear how the PCB attaches to the panel (electrically). The SMD female header is meant to solder to the 4 pads you'll see on the back of the panel. I wasn't really comfortable with this (positioning seems critical) so made the connection with ribbon cable instead. Ribbon cable attaches to the PCB in place of the 4-pin header.
