Thanks Derp for the great assessment
Still no midi input, but I have a nifty KORG SQ-1 to affords me 2 extra cv/gate seq pairs, clk sync and midi to cv.
...for now

I’ve been experimenting with small racks I can use to pull out a few modules at a time to better learn them, since they can sometimes get lost and forgotten (and thus not learned well enough to do them justice). I set this up in a Mother 32 case a couple weeks ago, and I think I’ve decided to keep it as a dedicated instrument.



The intention here is to be a dedicated experimental sampler/FX instrument, which I’m also planning to pair with my Koma Field Kit as a mixer and sound and modulation source. Long before I ever touched a synth I was way into electro-acoustic music and artists like Nurse With Wound, and I feel like dedicating this rig as an “instrument” will help me to focus on finishing an album for a project close to my heart. What I like about this setup is that it’s relatively simple and doesn’t really require much patching...you can get by just fine with only fingers...but a little clever patching can really expand on something, which makes it a lot of fun for growing a patch. That said, I kinda feel like this is calling for a Landscape Stereo Field, because GAS.

Mind you, this has now opened holes in my main racks, so I’ve quickly filled those with future plans.

It’s a blast. I’m currently listening to an ambient droney thing I just knocked together in a few minutes by putting a little music box on top of Ears into Morphagene, sliced and then out to the EFFEXX, then using Ears envelope and gate out to trigger little variations by tapping and scratching it.

The EFFEXX is really, really good. It’s super deep and I’ve barely scratched the surface of what it can do (hence why I put it in a smaller rack originally to learn it better), but the quality of the effects are top notch and some of the best I’ve heard in eurorack.

EDIT: a quick link of what I’m talking about: Lou Cypher on Instagram: “Recorded a little music box I found leftover in an apartment I rented a decade ago (from Brett Netson of Built to Spill) into the…”

It's not a standard sounding filter, but if it's the kind of sound you're after, then its awesome!

This vid totally sold it to me:

Building my first case.
Show Us Your Modular Grid-my-eurorack-b.jpg
I already have the mutable stuff and a custom elements in black & gold.
The instruo modules should be here by the end of the week.

The Batumi or Wogglebug(haven't decided yet), Filter 8 and STmix i'll have to get next month, my bankacount is decimated again.

There's a lot more stuff i want to get, i might have to get a second case soon.

Also dreaming of a Matriarch or the Pittsburgh voltage laboratory Synthesizer

Batumi over the Wogglebug any day (I have both).

Isn't a more apt comparison Wogglebug versus Ultra Random Analog?

Or Batumi versus any other quad LFO?

Wogglebug versus Batumi is sort of Apples and Oranges, no?

Yes apples and oranges...
But Batumi offers you more atm......

Yes, it's in the context of my limited rack space.
Since i have a cp251 with S&H and slew, i am indeed getting the batumi, and hold off on the wogglebug untill i decide to expand.

Batumi has random waveforms also.

I love wogglebug, but I wouldn't want to use it overly without MATHS...

Can you elaborate? I haven't quite understood the uses of maths, it seems to be universally acclaimed, but i haven't quite understood it's depth. I know it has many capabilities, which ones would you deem essential for processing a wogglebug? Slew, attenuvert, other...

My future case has expanded quite a bit, this is what i have in mind: (modular grid screencapture)

So far the real thing is a bit more limited:(photo)

MATHS is just super handy, it can do a lot, mixer, low/high freq osc, trance gate, clock, clock divider, super long and tight envelopes, risers and falls, sweeps, logical mixing, peak detection and much more. It tends to come in handy when your main utilities are tied up or allows you to get by on less as it can be applicable in almost any situation.

Wogglebug is just very nice as a source for it, I use it as the primary clock source most of the time. For some reason, it's just very good at setting a musical tempo. Personally, I love all the output it provides and tend to carve it into a lot (using MATHS).

Not saying it's better than the Batumi, I just am fond of it. As for MATHS, as handy as it is, you might have a look at Frap Tools Falistri first, tho thats more expensive.

I could nearly go broke buying nothing but modulation sources. There are so many interesting and unique ones of so many varieties.

Kudos on getting so much functionality into such a small space. It looks like a lot of fun.

I was never before interested in a Wogglebug until I saw the otficial videos about using it with Rene.

Now I want to try the combination of a Maths, Wogglebug, Pressure Points plus Brains, and the Tempi just for clocks and sequencing.

Getting there. Rearranged today for more logical signal flow and to put the PNW where I can get up close to peer at the display. The Demora will come out eventually because it uses too much power.

Here is the current plan for Case One, and it feels like I have forever remaining...it's really 9U up top and 3U in the other half of the case with the black BSPro, but they logically go together and this is easier to MG:

(Case Two will hold the MS20, Boog, Pro-1, Cranial Saw voice, and more complimentary modules. Most effects and mixers and all that will be elsewhere).

^ It's too bad you can only get the black and gold face plates with a new system from Make Noise.
3rd party or used is the only way to get them. I actually had them make mine with the aluminum
face plates (they seemed a little offended by that, heh). I was just young and stupid at the time,
preferring metal to PCB

Currently paired with two x0xb0x, a DFAM and a Nord Micromodular (for modulation duties via phones output).

Next modules will be an Intellijel OR and a Befaco Rampage kit.

No, there is no filter yet
