Project Idea - EuroRack form factor RetroCade Synth

Recommended Posts

I've seriously been kicking around the idea of starting a new project to redo the RetroCade synth in the EuroRack modular format.

I was thinking to make a main module that would have a Tang Nano 9k board as the FPGA, MIDI input, and audio output. 

Then make modules for SID Channel, YM2149 Channel, etc. They would have knobs and everything required to physically control a single voice and would be connected via ribbon cable to the main board. 

With the original RetroCade I think I made something that wasn't very usable because of the form factor, I'm thinking that adopting the EuroRack format might make it usable for more people.
