Dunshield - our passive fader controller is in the works

A new passive fader controller: just faders, or can there be more?

  • Just the faders, thank you.

  • A pitchbend/modulation wheel would be cool.

  • Add a couple of buttons, but no pitch/mod.

  • Pitchbend/modulation + buttons please.

A box with 4 mod wheels and nothing else would be perfect for me. Not really a fan of using faders for dynamics+expression. I've spoken with other composers who feel the same.

Yes, this.


You mean something like the pictures attached?

This sort of stuff should be relatively easy with the modular standard that I'll be proposing - provided that a certain amount of units would need to be produced and sold.

I haven't found a decent Mod wheel part yet. I have the Doepfer part here - forgive me for saying that it is of low build quality. So that would have to be developed as well. Not a problem on its own, but enough of them will have to be produced to make it affordable. Crowdfunding could do the trick.

The build-in depth of a part like this will require the enclosure to be at least 45 mm high, making a desktop box rather bulky - some people took issue with this. None of that is an issue when you flush mount the modules on Eurorack rails - as long as there's enough room under your desktop.

@Dunshield did you end up making this?

Hey there - well believe it or not, it is still in the making. Got postponed due to other projects. I have a big vision with this, a clear goal. It requires $$$$$$$ and I am working on that funding. Next step is to assemble a dream team. The vision is there, fingers crossed this will be realized.

Oh my word - I've been dreaming for AGES that someone would make exactly this, with high quality parts. MAKE IT SO!!! ;)

Any further development?
Hi there Colony Nofi, thanks for your message.

I have been working on the funding of Dunshield for the past year. And urging to get more hands-on again after 1+ year of growing capital.

One other product is in the works as well.

All of this is in the early stages still, so it will take time .. If you can be patient with me, who knows where this will go.

Cheers everyone
