New Modular Gear Purchase Thread Modular Synthesizers

I came hella close to buying a couple Electribes over the weekend. Once I reasoned out why it was a bad idea, I talked myself into buying some modules instead.


It'll be nice to finally have a replacement for my old Dot Com spring reverb.


I had ordered a Charcot Circles a long time ago, but Perfect Circuit ended up being out of stock, so I spent the money elsewhere. While I'm super happy with my other sequencers (especially the Division 6 Dual Sequencer), I'm still curious about this one, so I added it to the collection. Hopefully SE will one day get around to making that expander they've been talking about that will turn it into an 8-channel sequencer.


This is ultimately what helped sway me on getting Electribes. While I do have plenty of trigger sequencers and lots of drum modules, I think this having its own VCA's and envelopes will open up a different world of percussion experimentation for me. Plus it was really hard to say no to the price I found it at.

Because I don't know how to stop, I grabbed one of these:



And my third one of these:


I think if I can eventually get to four Waveforms, I'll be happy-ish.

If you like intentionally unwieldy samplers, prepare to be blown away!

When I got Knit Rider I was considering the Lifeforms sequencer. I heard that (and this is kinda hilarious) even Pittsburgh's own touch modules don't work correctly in their old Cell 90 cases which is where my drum rack is currently living. I also really appreciate the micro steps in the KR. But the built in EGs on the Lifeforms is a very cool. I could imagine putting it with a Quantum Rainbow and clean resonant filter like Ripples for instant build your own drums type patches.

...I totally forgot that those are touch pads. I've had good experiences with the Soundmachines pads, but Pressure Points made me not want to go that route again except to get more Soundmachines stuff. I hope I didn't just make a mistake because it's such a cool idea for a module.

I have Knit Rider as well, I just don't use it much since getting Circadian Rhythms. I should like the KR better in theory because I like sixteen step patterns, but those tiny buttons aren't very fun to program with, so I just make do by chaining patterns in Circadian Rhythms and making sixty-four steps my standard of working.

lol, if I had any money right now I'd be buying your Trigger Riot anyway. Saw a vid of Devine playing with one of those and a Z8000, and now I'm in lust.

They are a really great pair, but the Trigger Riot is just not for me, a little too much going on in the ways I don't care for. But we both know I am weird about that, so I am sure you will love it.

I didn't anticipate this but the combination of the Pithoprakta and Grids is really fantastic, together with the Qcd I have a lot of trig power. Even more if I need it with the Octocontroller. In my smallish system the Trigger riot is a little overkill...you on the other hand...

It's definitely a fun box. Back in the old days, I did a lot of movie sampling ... not for vocal snippets like most people did, but for bits of incidental sound and music that I'd then mangle on on the Emax. The Morphagene let's me do that type of stuff again on the modular. It's just with a Clouds and an ER-301 (two other modules with sampling), I spent way too much money on just the Morphagene's UI. And just to rub it in, I just saw that ER-301 v3.x dropped yesterday with sample time stretching. That said, I'm having fun with it. I put Kammerl back on Clouds so I can use it more for beat slicing and drum loop processing.

PCA finally gave me tracking info for one of these:



Been using the Benjolin combined with some other modules for random needs since pretty early into my eurorack journey, but this should give me lots more options.

This one's fun. There's a bit of a learning curve with it as it's not as straightforward as say a Wogglebug, but it rewards patience and experimentation.

Just got a Gristleizer. One part of Chris Carter's famed Throbbing Gristle modular, now being offered in Eurorack format by Future Sound Systems.

I grabbed a Phonogene while they were going cheap, but I wouldn't mind a Morphagene later on as well. I love feeding the Phonogene voices from my Radio Music and letting it get mutilated. This video from Surachai convinced me I needed it just because you can do so much with so little.

Too much Riot, not enough Trigger? I'd love to trade for it, but all I've got right now that might be getting sold is some guitar gear.

That TG one i was talking about, earlier in the thread, is nutty good. Basically it can wheeze, glitch, make walls of sound, and, on occaision, in random sample mode, speak. It kinda reminds me of a few Coil songs, in this mode.

Now i totally want to start a mini throbbing gristle box. This thing would fit so perfect, in between a few of pulsing thunderbolts, in those Future Sound System modules.

Incoming for me too, waiting for stock to arrive at Found Sound in Melbourne, Australia. Great little store with a nice selection of Euro (and guitars, synths, etc.)!

Blaming genshi's thread ...

How do you like the waveforms compared to the Omikron? I do like the sound of them tend to use them more than the Omikron now.

I don't have any Dreadbox modules (yet?). Funny thing is if I recall correctly, before I bought my other two Waveforms, I'd asked you the very same question. And thanks for pointing me in the direction of these because I'll agree with you that it sucks how easily they can be bumped out of tune, but they sound so good. They held their ground in an a/b with my old Dot Com oscillators, so they let me free a couple grand in Dot Com modules and buy more Eurocrack.

So to follow up on this, the touch pads on the Pittsburgh Percussion Sequencer work great. No problems at all with them. Dare I say, I even like them.

Charcot Circles on the other hand, I'm having to do a LOT of finger-licking to get it to cooperate. I would never want a used one of these; they've got to be covered in saliva.
