If he went with a Euro rack system his budget would be gone after purchasing just the basic rack & PS. He wouldn't even have enough money left over to purchase one module. :? I'm going to have to concur with the idea of going the Nord route. You can purchase a Nord micromodular for between $250-375 ...

In all fairness, you didn't really offer any suggestions about making bell sounds. You suggested that he use two completely different synths instead. :P

My modular, simply for the fact that no other person in the world has the exact same modular as me. (though I'm sure that could be said for many modulars)

I can't really add anything new to the thread except to agree with what Stab and piRoN have said. You must respect the ventilation slots in your gear. If there are ventilation slots in the top or bottom of a piece of your rack gear, you should leave a 1U space for it to breath. However, as piRoN poi...

What Stab said reminded me about something. Since you are in North America, (I assume they ship to anywhere though) Bridechamber offers parts kits for many of the CGS and MFOS modules, so if sourcing the parts is a concern of yours, you might also want to consider this. You can get the PCBs from CGS...

If I were you I would go with Blacet kits to startout instead of Paia. The instructions are pretty clear and you should not have too much trouble assembling them with no experience. And on top of that they are SO much better than Paia in quality, sound, rack strength, pretty much everything. The Pai...

Since cheap is the word here, the cheapest budget modules that I know of are the:

Yamaha TX81Z
Roland D110
Kawai K1R

They can be had for about $50 each. (sometimes less)

Note: they are all 1U rack modules.

Instead of the CS-5, you might consider the CS-15 instead, you won't be disappointed. It is a much better "bang for the buck."

What is wrong with this whole thing is that the person in question is taking a mbhp device and selling it for profit which is clearly forbidden under creative commons. It is no different if someone repackaged a linux distro and started selling it as their own but isn't he just selling one, not many...

The cost of ownership for vintage synths is just going to keep going up. As parts become more rare and techs who can understand them become harder to find, the maintenance costs will just continue to grow. That is why it is a good idea to stock up on replacement parts now while they are still avail...

Yeah, the Alesis Fusion also comes to mind. They dropped the price on those by over 50% to move units.
