System80 releases Roland inspired 810 synth voice and 820 oscillator

Published on :

System80 are sticking with their love of the Roland vibe and have released two new Eurorack modules. The 810 is a three-section subtractive synth voice and the 820 pulls out the VCO part to offer it up on its own. 810 It’s three modules in one; a VCO to VCF to VCA. There’s nothing particularly […]

Unfiltered Audio roars into virtual instruments with LION

Published on :

It’s Unfiltered Audio so you can count on it being a bit fierce. LION is their first virtual instrument following on from some brutal distortion plug-ins, transmogrifying time machines and other modulation and processing secret weapons. It makes sense that they find themselves developing their own sound sources. LION It’s a dual oscillator synthesizer with […]

Folktek about to release 6 elegantly designed works of Eurorack module art

Published on :

Folktek is a slightly mysterious artistic collaboration who erratically produce extraordinary instruments and Eurorack modules that are works of art. They seem to pop up from time to time with something amazing and then fade away leaving you feeling like they may never surface again. But this time they are about to return with a […]

Radikal Technologies DELTA CEP A semi-modular swarms into the shops

Published on :

It feels like we’ve been waiting an age for this remarkable looking semi-modular synthesizer to move beyond the synth shows and make itself available. We first saw it at NAMM 2018 but now Radikal believes the time is right to set the DELTA CEP A loose on an unsuspecting world. DELTA CEP A This is […]

Rob Papen digs out some vintage analogue synthesis with B.I.T.

Published on :

Rob Papen’s synths are usually hybrids of analogue modelling and digital synthesis but with B.I.T. he goes back-in-time (see what he did there?) to focus on old fashioned analogue synthesis from the “good ole days”. B.I.T. You get two oscillators, two filters, a couple of LFOs and an envelope per voice. No flashy wavetables or […]

Nylon: Geometric oscillators and explorative sound design

Published on :

Nylon from Wave Casual is a cool looking synthesizer that uses oscillators based on geometry to define the timbre via a circular path. Then it’s all morphing, modulation and movement for there into unexplored sounds. Nylon Now, this is a lovely looking piece of software, all clean lines, soft greys and gorgeously animated bezier curves. […]

Superbooth 2019: FSS OSC1 Cyclical Engine is ready to spin and lots more to come

Published on :

Future Sound Systems hoped to have this, their first Eurorack oscillator, ready last summer and we saw the prototype at Superbooth 2018. A year later preorders on the OSC1 Cyclical Engine have just opened and they are planning to ship in July. Let’s hope that FSS take on the humble oscillator is worth the wait. […]

Cursus Iteritas Magnus and Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus 5U modules from Noise Engineering

Published on :

Noise Engineering had their first foray into large format 5U modular back in September. Now they have two more modules to bring to the chunky, high-end modular party in the shape of Cursus Iteritas Magnus and Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus. Cursus Iteritas Magnus This is based upon the Eurorack Cursus Iteritas oscillator that works from a […]

Superbooth 2019: E-RM Polygogo polygonal synthesis module

Published on :

This seemed to be a slightly elusive module at the show. It’s difficult to find any images or video about it but it was definitely there. Perhaps it only made itself know to the most deserving which is why the only post about it on Instagram is from Cuckoo. Polygogo Polygogo is a stereo Eurorack […]

Superbooth 2019: Voltage Research Laboratory modulates its way onto Kickstarter

Published on :

We caught a glimpse of a very intriguing machine coming from Pittsburgh Modular. Now the Voltage Research Laboratory has been fully revealed and is being released via Kickstarter. Let’s “Explore the Natural Systems and Lesser Known Fringes of Analog Synthesis”. Voltage Research Laboratory They are calling it the Organic Modular Synthesizer and it is certainly […]
