Many users have requested that Metasonix produce tube modules in formats other than Eurorack. We will offer these modules as special limited-production items. They will be based on RK modules except as noted, and use heavy aluminum front panels with engraved and paint-filled lettering.

Random*Source/Serge format

These are in the 178mm-high and 108mm-wide "4x4" format used by Random*Source to produce Serge/STS-compatible modules. Each module combines the functions of two standard RK modules. They fit any Random*Source cabinet or "boat". Banana jacks are fitted for all input and output functions; each module includes a front-panel ground jack to make interconnections to other Serge-style cabinets. Included is a special adapter cable to connect to the MTA-156 connectors in Random*Source cabinets; we strongly suggest using the Random*Source RS4P cabinet/supply to run Metasonix modules, due to the considerable current needed to power the vacuum tube heaters. Smaller R*S power supplies or Serge/STS supplies might have difficulty with the load. (Loudest Warning/Clee cabinets have a different panel size and mounting hole arrangement plus a different power bus, and are not recommended at present.) Otherwise, all the standard RK functions and effects are available.

Two types are available: The "Bellend" contains an RK4 and RK2, and the "Crapulescent" contains an RK3 and RK6. Additional modules are planned for 2020. Contact us for more information or for custom work.
