We are a two oscillator household now. 

I got a brand spanking new one from 1965. ;-)

It's an Advance J1-B, on top with the big vernier dial. This is a later model and a development of the H-1, below.

Audio generator coming on. This is one of a pair I'm building, the other is slightly different. 

The sub frame is nearly built (that's Eurorack on the bottom) - there's a 5U rack shelf to add to carry the weight of the generator and scope. I've got to build a power supply / distribution board for the Eurorack modules (got the PCB's, waiting for parts and a toroidal transformer.) A nice custom wooden rack case is also on order. 

So this effectively has a hand built modular synth attached to it. Just add oscillators and you've also got a full fledged analogue modular synthesizer.

Ooh those generators make some lovely sounds, and I also enjoyed ImaginaryLandscape. Do make sure to also provide your audiences with a memorable visual spectacle Wink.

Blimey - where DID you find that photo ?

That's a Bruel and Kjaer Beat Frequency Oscillator, model 1024, in the middle. ;-)

LOL I assume you are a true expert Star. The photo is Cluster around 1972 and appears in the book "Krautrock, Cosmic Rock and its Legacy".

Update. ;-)

After a lot of hammering noises in the garage, we're getting very close to a "mains on" test. ;-)

The generator effects are housed in the top wooden box. You can see the power supply and transformer in it. 

The box below contains some electrickery I've built and will be used for another project - the Uber Theremin. ;-)
