I kept wanting to buy the MIDI expander for Edges, but it turns out they were DIY only, so I made one for myself. I changed the board a little bit to use a Thonkiconn jack for the stepped wav output, mostly because I have more of them around the house, and I also changed the jumpers at the top to make wiring ground to the MIDI jack easier.
You have to buy five copies of the board/panel when you get them made, so I made a second one in case there was someone else who wanted one (I have three more panels/board combos if someone is interested in making their own).
The best info I've been able to find on its functionality comes from Michigan Synth Works, in their listing for their Threshold (Edges + MIDI) module: "MIDI Learn: Press this button and send a midi note. The device will use that channel as the base channel
MIDI Mode: This button cycles between two operational modes. 1. 4 single voices trigger on 4 midi channels starting on the base MIDI channel (i.e. base channel is channel 2 so the voices are mapped over channels 2, 3, 4, 5) 2. Simple Poly mode where each voice plays on a different note on the same midi channel
Note about MIDI and Gating: The gate is normalled OPEN by the Gate 1 input. This is by design but will also force the gate open when the device is triggered by MIDI. Placing a dummy jack will break the open normal the gate will trigger via MIDI normally."
When I first designed the panel, I added a cool-looking crosshatch pattern, but then it didn't match my Edges faceplate, so I had another set of panels made without the pattern. I was also an idiot the first time and forgot to request that the order number not be printed on the panel, so it's there in a tiny font towards the bottom. When I ordered the updated panel, I figured I would add a reverse side to the panel in case I ever want to flip it upside down, but it turns out they can only do black on one side of the aluminum, so the flipped upside down side is bare aluminum. At any rate, I will include both panels, so you have your choice of the three different looks.
Mutable doesn't support DIY versions of their modules, so if you have any questions, please ask me and not Emelie at the Mutable Forums. If you have any issues with it, like maybe a wire accidentally gets ripped off when you're putting it in your case, just send it back and I'll fix it up for you.
I'm not sure if this is a module that interested anyone outside of myself or not, but if you see this listing and it's sold and you're bummed because you were interested, send me a message and I can either make another one for you or hook you up with the PCB and panel and the BOM I used.
I've included a 30cm cable to use to hook the expander up to the Edges module, so you don't necessarily have to have them right next to each other. Be mindful of the polarity, though. Pins 1 on both Edges and the expander are marked with a white line.
