Michael Collins' Command Module
ARP 2500 inspired 10-switch/10-bus switching matrix with OFF position, expandable to 20x10, 30x10 or 40x10.
This is a switch matrix inspired by the ARP 2500 synthesizer. The matrix has 10 busses to which each signal can be routed via a rotary switch. In the "OFF" position the respective signal is not routed to any bus. The matrix is arbitrarily expandable, so that with two modules a 20x10, with three modules a 30x10 and with four modules even a 40x10 switch matrix is created.
The basic module offers 100 select stations in the 10x10 arrangement with off position.
Two different variants are available: Variant 1 contains 10 rotary switches and 10 associated sockets. Variant 2 contains 10 additional sockets with which the 10 buses can also be tapped directly.
- 10 internal buses, optionally led out on sockets
- 10 rotary switches with 11 positions (bus 1-10, OFF)
- 10 connection sockets
- several modules can be linked via one bus cable
- no crosstalk
- four-layer design
- available as DIY kit and assembled
