What's New at Blacet Research: Fall 2014
PS800 Standalone Power Supply?
Some folks have expressed interest in a self contained unit for non
rack use or to replace the PS505s mounted on the original Frac Rak.
Let's hear your feedback! (Some interest but need more...)
Euro to Frac Conversion Kits
For the Synth Tech 340, 350, 355, 560, 580.
If you have a Euro unit it is simple to convert it to Frac!
See the online order page.
New Design for the VCO2100
Same great circuitry, less depth (4.5" max), PCB mount
PSCONN3 Now Available
Eighteen connectors. Uses standard module cable to connect to the power
supply. See the online order page.
Rak-2 Module Mounting Cases
After 10+ years, it's time for a redesign from the rather basic Rak.
The good news is that we now can offer a much nicer system with room
for twice as many modules and 60%
more power for $23 *less* than the equivalent in old Rak parts,
PS505 and PSCONN2!
The new power supply is ultra green; every little bit helps the
Plus, we shaved 1.5" off the depth while retaining the ability to mount
all those older, longer modules.
And, the new unit weighs 3 lbs vs the old rak equivalent of 4.25 lbs.
Those of you that wanted a power switch will be happy to see one on the
rear. The power supply will work in any country with no adjustments;
just plug in the correct IEC power cord. Plus, you can now use a 9" or
12" module cable instead of the old 18" one due to the central location
the distribution strip.
For $60 more, you can get top and bottom panels, handles and rubber
feet for an awesome standalone package.
Cheaper, smaller, lighter, more power,
more convenient and sexy to boot!

I've had the opportunity to
check out some of Synthesis Technology's new DSP modules.
They are nice and compact, have interesting features hard to implement
in a totally analog fashion and they sound very nice.
They already come with a Blacet/MOTM standard power connector (as well
as a Euro connector).
We've designed a Frac front panel and added appropriate knobs to blend
in with the rest of your Frac gear.
