Someone mentioned AJH Synth. Their VCOs are a good example on how it‘s got to be, opposed to many others. Their tone is great, the controls are of good quality, they have PWM, sync, both Lin and Exp FM and attenuator controls for the CV inputs. When I was getting a pair of VCOs I found that hardly anyone would deliver the features I was looking for in a „classic“ type modular VCO. Call them innovative or not but at least they deliver.

Affordable Eurorack compatable modular = TE Pocket Modular.
It actually sounds good (from the many demos) and is apparently going to be delivered to customers in 4 weeks time.

I googled it and what I found was an awful advertisement video

Your problem not mine. There is a ton of content from NAMM on Youtube.

that TE stuff looks to me like "fisher technik's" rebirth, except those looked more solid.

I'm also jumping on the TE system, but to be fair that's not eurorack format. So not really apples to apples.

I thought it's euro compatible?

Iirc you have a partially disassemble and configure for eurorack. I could be wrong. But thats my recollection from looking it over.

You'll have to build your own panels, the TE systen is a little smaller. Odd decision in my opinion.

I want overengineered militairy flightcases. But I think that camonetting is cozy.

I wouldn't know what I was looking at to be honest.
Having owned one of the first Doepfer modular systems in the mid-90's - and having also owned a two cabinet Roland 100M at the same time, and often used them together, it never remotely sounded to me like they had anything in common, other than being subtractive synth modular systems with a similar cable connection (1/8").

I'm sure this is 100% accurate. I know for a fact that anyone who hasn't been on this forum for years is either a minor or has never worked in their life.
And it's also a given that music gear is made by people living in dire poverty AND that more profits for their boss would definitely result in more wages for them. I'm certain!

You may have a different definition of "Eurorack compatible" than I do. It uses standard 3.5mm jacks so, to my mind, is 100% Eurorack compatible. I'm not concerned about it fitting in my case, it already has its own case.

(Unless you're not talking about the TE modular thing, in which case, my bad!)

I hope they will make cases. Midas also makes great Series 500 cases, some nice Eurorack cases by them would be very welcome

Same.
The Teenage Engineering modular does not automatically fit into a Eurorack case, but in every other way it is compatible (cabling, voltages etc).
Just like the old Roland 100M system is compatible with Eurorack.

Odd decision... Why not make the modules in the eurorack size standards?
Old 4th February 2019

Because they mainly wanted to offer it in standalone, kit format?
I don't really have a problem with different module housings, as long as the cabling and voltages are compatible.
In the 90's my system was Eurorack, Roland 100M and Arp 2600.
All of them communicated with each other, but in different cases of course.

Well if you are a travelling musican like me the less boxes and bags I have to carry the better. Plus it's much more orginized for me to have everything sit neatly in one enclosure. Preferences I guess...
It's just not that big of a difference for them I assume and it could be a major plus to many people who usually don't make their panels. I do some diy so it's not that big of a deal for me but you know

Two ideas for Behringer Eurorack Modular

Hi Uli

Thanks for building good products at a price everyone can afford.

I have two ideas for the Behringer Eurorack Modular.

1 - A module that can be used to patch every patch cable you have from all modules. Then you can select where to route these cables. Like some sort of midi controllable patchbay. Give it sysex so you can store everything on a computer editor/librarian. You can then restore very complex cable routings in a couple of seconds. Without the need to touch your patch cables again.

2 - I don't know if this module is even possible. The idea is to get the value (current) of all sliders and knobs from all modules and store the settings in a module with midi like the first idea above. The module can have a display where the values are displayed. Then you can move a slider or a knob until the display says 'ok'. Then you go to the next slider or knob and do the same. That will make the modular system able to store sounds.

Together with my first idea that will make a modular system that is able to completely store sounds together with all patch cables. That would be a monster modular system I think.

Have you tried any of the virtual modular systems?
I'm sure you can save snapshots in them.
Eliminating patching - then adding patch and cable memory, sysex and midi is actually the complete opposite of what modular synthesis is all about. So you might as well just use a modern poly synth.

I do not agree. The point for me is this. Let's say that you have several perfect sounds for a recording done on a modular system and you need to restore them. That is not possible. I want all possibilities a modular system can give me together with a patch and cable memory so I can restore everything if needed. A modern poly synth is not able to do everything a modular system can do so that is not an option. And software virtual systems is not as cool as the real thing

I like to play with real sliders and knobs. You do not have to agree but thanks for your answer.
