New Modular Gear Purchase Thread

I kind of think the monthly format used in EMI&EMP is a bit too cumbersome, so how about one master thread to show off your purchases? If you guys would prefer it be monthly, feel free to delete this and we'll go the monthly format.

Had these come in last week:


Noise Reap ISD Sampler - Simple and brilliant. Recording at high speed and then pitching down makes samples sound GRUNGY!

Noise Reap Loafers - I haven't dipped in too deep with this, but I never seem to have enough LFO's.

Barton 1Song - I got this from a guy that sells completed DIY modules on eBay, and then makes his own panel. I'm man enough to admit it: I bought it because it's got a kitty on the panel. I'm still learning this module but in brief experiments, it's neat. Just hit a button and it generates a random melody for you. I can't wait to push the limits of this one.

Gieskes Fan VCO - Even as I was buying this one, I knew it was a bad idea. It's a bit limited in what it can do (basically a sine wave with a slew on it when pitching up and down), but it does have a certain weirdness factor that I couldn't resist.

Erica Pico Voice - This was an impulse purchase that I didn't look that deeply into. The acid synth algorithm is extremely limited in what it can do, but it does sound nice. No regrets though as the PWM, supersaw, and wavetable sound great.

Zlob Passive Attenumixer - A basic utility and does what it says. It's nice to have a passive mixer floating around in the rack.

Nice grab with the Noise Reap Modules. I just love the ISD Sampler, it gets so dirty!

Yeah, it's hard to find anything to complain about with Noise Reap. I love his prices, too. Like with the Bermuda's, I want to get mad because they don't have sawteeth, but at $60 each, how can I? They're surprisingly high quality for the price, too. I've toyed with the idea of making a Noise Reap voice before, and it would cost well under a grand:

I like the way you think! I would even consider adding the upcoming DOPES module for more Noise fun!

Ah nice, I didn't even know about Dopes. Thanks for the heads up there!

Love that thing. Gets used on nearly every patch. Plate and REV-FL-LP in particular are my faves. The neat thing about the flanger in REV-FL-LP is that it's a static flanger on its own, so you have to send your own modulation to it to get it moving. Controlling it with an envelope is an awesome trick.

Thanks Derp! I found out about this module right before I got into eurorack, but was disappointed when I found out it was a very limited release, and that they had all been snapped up two years ago. So I filed it into the mental "modules I would love to own but I'm sure I'll never find" folder. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I'm browsing the classifieds on muffs and lo and behold one came up for sale. I knew what I needed to do right then, because if I didn't then I knew someone else would.

Give it time and you might get lucky. There's a few I own now that I thought I would never have the privilege of having for myself.

I picked up some Malekko modules used from a friend in the last few weeks, 2 Richter Oscillator II's, a Varigate 8+ and a Voltage Block. The oscillators are pretty great, they seem in the same realm of stability and tone with my favorite modular osc's, the MOTM 300. The Malekko's sound wonderful FM-ing each other.

The VG8+/VB combo is going to keep me occupied for quite a while I think. My Euro setup is pretty small, 9uX104 hp, plus an 0-Coast, but I have a bunch of 5u and Frac, and the VG8+/VB seems like it can be a master sequencer for my whole setup. I put them in a skiff with 2 Pressure Points and Brains, and a 4MS QCD, it's a pretty powerful little sequencing box. I've been so busy lately that I've barely had the chance to scratch the surface of what this combo can do.

Sorry for the stock image, but it's such a tiny thing that once I tried to take pics of it patched in the rack it didn't really jump out!

Anyhow, I'm loving this thing so far. I was a little wary after getting the 2HP clock divider a couple weeks ago and finding that it behaves erratically, but the Freez is awesome. I'm finding it is a perfect pairing with the Koma Kommander, and I've been having a blast tonight running Amen breaks into it from the Disting and waving my hands around to glitch things up:

Moog model 15. It sounds amazing and partners well with thr Minimoog D reissue. Love just seeing it in the studio. The inductor based Fixed Filter Bank really sprinkles on some magic, you can get dome excellent sounding sounds out of it. I dont plan on growing my modular setup too much.

I have the E352 coming that I bought mid July. I had an email from Paul saying it was posted last week so I might be lucky next week. I picked up a Telemark a couple of weeks ago and have yet to try out as I've just got my rack back together after building some new ears - see Modular DIY racks. I'm dipping my toe into DIY but that's another story and a different thread? I don't think we have one for DIY yet?

And for modular use I've just bought a JBL LSR305 for my my portable rig/table I've been building. I've have some Focal Alpha 65's but not very easy lugging this around rooms.

I pre-ordered the E352 in July and it was only released on Sept 20th. My order was shipped 10 days ago and don't know how long shipping is but I expect around 14 days. I'll let you know.

I don't know where you are based but I'm in the UK and I worked out buying from the States after calculating VAT and excise duty it works £100 cheaper than buying from European sellers.

Synthesis Technology only have the black one direct, which I wanted but other U.S. suppliers see the website stock the silver one.

Okay cheers! I did like you, although too late - 26th of August here will just have to wait, but that’s not really my strong suit.

Just drop Paul a line, he was very good communicating when I was asking about shipping and customs before I bought.

Wow looks great, nice classy design. I wish other eurorack vendors would take that approach.
