Today I noticed that the Eurorack english wikipedia page was just a redirect to the Doepfer A-100 page. I though this odd, seeing as (AFAIK) Doepfer doesn’t actually use the Eurorack term, and Eurorack has been a distinct concept since at least as far back as 2005, so I decided to stub a broader Eurorack page.
I’ve spent some time learning about the history of modular synthesis but I’m actually a eurorack newbie. I’d really appreciate any corrections or new content you’d be willing to contribute! Maybe if we fill the page out, and continue thoroughly referencing everything with a variety of citations, we can avoid the page getting deleted by any of the more zealous WP admins.
My personal wish list for the page:
- Better photos! I’d love to replace the current header photo with a really nice photo of a medium-size rack with a variety of different modules and a few patch cables
- More artists. I tried to include a few I know off the top of my head, who fortunately all happened to have WP pages already, plus hopefully increasing the ‘notability factor’ by mentioning Coldplay
- A list of manufacturers?
- More citations and references from non-web sources. Some books would be nice. I might re-watch IDOW for this purpose
- More detailed history, especially of the early days, and some history which isn’t just a list of product releases
- Some external links to good resources, books, documentaries etc.
