...so i put some color-changing LEDs behind the blanking panels, and lo and behold, you will get a gentle light pattern effect (due to the holes drilled in the panel).

EDIT: Ok so after posting, i realized that the photo i had posted earlier was so underwhelming it just didn't do justice to the roughly 1 hour i spent cramming these lights in the case (ultimately i had to fashion some cardboard and aluminum foil reflectors.. very flame retardant if you might image, hah!)

here's a video - actually the video is sped up a lot since the lights actually change color sort of slowly...

no, the music wasn't made on a mattson modular - only have a sample and hold and quad VCA which i use with other stuff - but i am going to try to "rectify this shortage" soon!

the LEDs were just 12V car leds (i think meant to mount your license plate on to..?)... i just threw some resistors in and hooked them up to the +15V rail. hopefully there is not something horrible that happens when you have more load on the +15V rail than the -15V rail... everything (meaning my 2 modules hah) -seems- to work still tho'![/url]
