thank you for this valuable contribution❤️
simple fix! it's one of the best modules. I know it doesn't matter, I already have mine (1 and 2), but it bugs me.
Do you design panels? If so, maybe you could propose some changes so they can be implemented in the next batch.

Patched it blind last night, just wiggling. It's insane. Looking forward to see the official user's guide or a video walkthrough.

paging DivKid...

Oh, I really like the look as well with a silver panel. Font is cute & unique. At least it looks clean.

It’s been something like four months now it’s in my rack now. There is so much to do with it. It feels like it will take me years to try everything.

Perhaps food for a MN-Meets-SM2 video?

curious to see what you think would look good. glad u like the module
Yes, happy to do/help. It's not a big deal. If you like that font, can't argue,-to me it looks like a font with bold turned on-without a "bold" font available. kerning should look better than that, sometimes "auto" doesn't work. Just being picky. don't really care, as it's an essential module.

Thank you! I’ve seen this before, forgot to bookmark then. I’ll be referencing to this for a while when I’m patching SM2. After a quick scan tho, I was able to get way wilder modulations just by patching blind. That’s very exciting for me. Also, I read synth manuals for fun *nerdalert*

it's actually artificially de-bolded, but yeah same concept.. I see the spacing between the G and A as being funny lookin relative to the rest of the line of text, but it's not worth hundreds in tooling costs to fix. I just hope it's legible and easy on the eyes for most ppl

It defo is legible and, this is subjective, but I like the look and the font is fine for me.

I have quite a few modules I like in spite of their aesthetics, but the Sport Modulator isn't one of them!

:lol: agreed, quickly scanned the patch notes but have mostly just been going in blind and seeing what happens. Some of the most fun I've had in a while, thing is incredible.

Heads up to anyone looking, there's an "open box" SM2 up for auction on eBay right now. The seller is based in Pennsylvania, with the auction ending at 9 PM Eastern time.

I have no involvement with this sale, just leaving the info.

The background in the photo is consistent with the Ebay shop’s other items, it’s feasible they do indeed have one.

As to why it ended up there, I guess could be a customer pawned it immediately for personal reasons. Or it got stolen and pawned. Anyone’s guess.

A great chance to cop some Yeezy’s at the same time.

did not doubt that they had the item, was curious as to how it was purchased. anyway it sold for 150$! just hope it doesn't come up that it was stolen er somethin is all , could be legit, idk, I messaged the seller about it.

Actually turns out this was shady. this module was stolen from someones porch in Philly 12 days ago or so. sucks. If someone here bought it (?) you should return it to the seller, who ought to return it to my customer, if they aren't shit heads. He's got to file a police report tho I think,

Aw that sucks :( hope they’re able to get it back somehow.

I think pawn shops are generally required to keep records of sales and cooperate with law enforcement if they handle stolen goods. Not that it always solves a case like this.

eBay also has a stolen goods policy.

good news- the module was recovered and picked up by it's rightful owner. the pawn shop was very cool about it.

"Happy owner of SM2 - what are peoples fav ways of using this module? I'm confused!"


what are you confused about? you could work through the patch examples mdoudroff has compiled to start, i think it's a few pages back.
