 Just arrived - my first two "Moog" PCBs to complement the Behringer System 55 modules.

The left hand PCB is the "control voltages" section of the Moog CP3/992 modules - this can be used as part of a Eurorack CP-style module, or for a 992 Control Voltages module to drive the 904 series filters. Note that my PCB differs from the Behringer CP3-O and 993 modules:

1. There are no front panel inputs or outputs - the PCB is designed to support "Trunk Lines" as in the original Moog Modular, but using Molex connectors on the back of the PCB.

2. The "Ext Input" is an attenuverter  (or "Reversing Attenuator" in Moog-speak): Moog and Behringer have an attenuverter on the 992, but only an attenuator on the CP3-O. I've also added the option to normalise the Ext. Input to +6V - useful for switching in pre-set transpositions etc.

On the right is a dual purpose Mixer PCB that can be configured as either the CP3 (transistor based), or as the CP3A (op-amp based). The PCB supports the "click filter" for the CP3 option (missing on the Behringer CP3A-M module!), and optionally a performance control (SW2 on the PCB) to mute channels 1&2 or channels 3&4. I will be combining both of these PCBs behind a panel to make "CP3" modules, but the Mixer PCB can also be rotated 90 degrees to form a stand alone (16HP) mixer module
