Some time ago, I rambled about potential setups which, why they did contain some modular content, had that as a minor component. Now, it’s time to look at results and experiences.Read more "Tech Thoughts: Hybrid Modular Setups"
September of 2017 saw me get my first two Eurorack modules. Since then, my system has grown – and I learned a few things along the way. Let’s go over the most important ones.Read more "Synth Thoughts: Lessons from the Eurorack Universe"
Being able to assemble everything to your liking is one of the key advantages of modular synths. If your newly assembled wavetable synth gets a ladder filter, a lowpass gate, a six-pole opto-FET design or something else is entirely up to you. With that comes the necessity to do just that.

This post got motivated by a twitter discussion some time ago: MODULAR QUESTION: @moinlabs @smetoyermusic @DivKid What is the benefit in using a second VCA with, for example, a full synth voice, like a drum module? I see DivKid doing it and he claims to be “further sculpting” the sound by cv’ing it. Like he […]Read more "Synth Thoughts: Multiple VCAs"
