Even less point in cloning a VA synth when real anlogue is so inexpensive.

Prophet 5 is fair game though! Please let it be a Prophet 10..

Man, and here I was holding out so much hope for them. Original synths/modules and cheap clones of stuff that isn't being made anymore sounds awesome, but picking on existing modular companies? Sure, Maths could probably be cloned for dirt cheap, but it's still in bad taste.

To be fair i am not buying Maths because the MN modules look so unbearable. I am game for a more conservative looking CV processor.

Ever since Buchla opened shop CV processors are quite commonplace in modular world, so its not like Maths is a big innovation.

Still i am not a fan of cloning still sold stuff. On the other hand just because there is picture on a screen of some guys PC, i am not willing to condemn a guy either. Time will tell.

Grayscale Maths panels look great, I think.

I'd like to see more *simple*, knobby digital CV processors that are affordable. There's so much potential for generating digital signals to use as controllers for analogue modules, or as complex sequencers, but I find that some of the current modules don't work with my brain. I don't bond with them in the same way as other modules. I find the Buchla approach more musical, although I haven't used a Buchla system enough to become expert.

My ideal system would involve several sequencer modules that are not basic step sequencers (which I find rather boring) but sequencers which allow more complex patterns of CV/gate to be controlled and modulated. They could be coupled, synched, desynched, edited, reshaped, etc. all by other modulators.

I know things exist out there already.. I'd like to repeat the word "affordable" for emphasis though (i.e not more than a synth!)..

Something Clouds-like at reasonable price point definitely would be bestseller. Especially in this context:

There are already Clouds-clones for 150 EUR, how more reasonable do you want the price to be? :D

While you're waiting you can already get:
- 2 Oscillators /w CV-controllable shape and PW plus an optional 2:1 mixer $50
- Multimode filter /w CV-controllable cutoff, resonance and FM $50
- Overdrive $30
- Analog delay /w CV-controllable time $30
- Dual ADSR envelope generator $30
- LFO /w CV-controllable shape, rate and reset $30
- 2:1 Mult $10
- 2 attenuators $10
- Slew limiter $15
- Sample & Hold $15
- MIDI 2 CV $20
- 6 patch cables $10
But you have to get the whole bundle for $300 and it comes it one box: Neutron.

Guess the product...

We're rollin'.

P.S. It's a prototype - so lot's of hand soldering going on;-)




Looks like a VCO, is that a 3340 on there..?

Yeah, that screams VCO to me, especially because of the trimmers on the back. It's probably that 100m oscillator they hinted at back when this thread started. The lack of attenuation sucks, but I'm sure it will be priced accordingly.

Yes, I see only one attenuator (if it's one).

Two pots:
- One is certainly frequency.
- The other one could be an attenuator for a CV-input. But is it for PW or frequency?
A switch:
- A Doepfer-style octave switch comes to my mind.
11 connections:
If I take a look at the 3340 datasheet, it has:
- frequency cv in
- hard-sync in
- soft-sync in
- linear fm cv in
- pwm in
- triangle out
- saw out
- pulse out
3 left...
The datasheet and the three blue things on the back-PCB somehow tell me there are 3 frequency-related inputs. But one then they go into the "frequency cv in" of the 3340. So there's still one left.

Someone pointed out that it looks very similar to a Moog 921B

But there's more connections on the Behringer module

Proper metal surface mount pots; nice. No skimping on build quality (Moog, are you listening? We've got an early plastic-shaft VCF knob on our Sub37 that I'm just waiting to fail).

Does it? I think of it less as "eurorack" and more "today's version of a rack synth/module".

And the only reason I didn't buy a VC330 is because it wasn't a module, rackable or otherwise.

Pretty mucb NO new Keyboards (literal keyboards) will enter this studio, rare exceptions excluded.

I think it being a module is just a sign of the times, and one I'm emphatically pleased with.

I don't think so. You are getting access to the modulation and phaser FX from the Solina.
Eurorack is not exactly flooded with FX modules, so this is a useful addition, imho.

I was ready to agree with this but...

I think this is a good point.

My only beef is the lack of CV/Gate inputs. No way it could address all of those notes of polyphony, but if I get this, it'll be to play with and be processed by the rest of the system. If they fix that, I'll buy it.

I do hope we see a continued trend of full synths as euroroack modules. Almost like the Yamaha TF1 modules from the TX-816.

I was also thinking it would be cool to see Eurorack implement a universal clock feature just like how the power is centralized. Imagine a whole bunch of modules/sequencers all synchronized to a master clock with a connection behind the panel (like power). And then the case itself might have a master clock and play/pause/reset buttons.
That way Eurorack might start to look like a modular DAW. Especially if there was some sort of multi-track recorder synced to the clock (for overdubs and stuff).

Eh.

Clock needs vary so much I'm perfectly content having separate modules for all that. It works great, as is, and I can't imagine a built in solution ever meeting my needs, then its just more built in crap I don't want.

THE beauty of modular is the modularity itself, IMO.

But I'm with you on eurorackable modules with loads of patch points.
