Carving Out Space: Dynamix and STO

Before we get started, lets talk about delays for just a minute, don’t worry, it bears on what we’re talking about here… Analogue delays, it seems like they’re where it’s at. They’re popular, and I can understand why. They just seem to sit better than typically brighter digital delays. I’ve had the pleasure of using […]

Make Noise 2018: Project Update

So, we’ve been talking about the components, the bits and bobs of the project, for a couple of weeks now, but how is the project going in general? Good question! I like to stay ahead of the blog while building out the system. It doesn’t seem like a good idea to spend a couple hours […]

Make Noise 2018: Contour

Our first modulation source is the lovely little Contour module. I sometimes get the sense that Contour is considered Function’s poor cousin. So, is Contour just for those of us too cheap to drop the extra $45 for Function? Personally, I don’t think so. What contour is, at it’s heart, is a beautiful and versatile […]

Make Noise 2018: STO

[Listen to STO get annihilated by modulation]¬†or [hear STO chill with delay and verb] STO is the sonic heart of our little system. It’s not the most imposing looking oscillator out there. For eight hp, why would we bother when there are other small offerings out there, in the same price range, with twice as […]

Make Noise 2018: Humble Beginnings

We’re going to start small. Really small. Why? First, start-up costs in eurorack are killer. In order for our modules to mean anything we’ll need a rack, power and cables. Sadly, that adds up to about $200-300 (on the cheap end.) You’ll want a controller too, a sequencer or keyboard. We’re looking at another $100 […]
