I managed to get my hands on an OG Make Noise QMMG last week (traded an Elements + cash) and am super impressed with how flexible, playable and great sounding it is!
I have been going through old threads on MW about it, but can’t find much discussion on how it fits into a more up to date eurorack ecosystem (also I feel so much more at home here ).
Who else here is using one in their system, OG or reissue? What are you finding works well with it, and what are the interesting things you’ve discovered?
I feel that running two Mangroves is a pretty ideal combo with the QMMG. The Mangroves being able to attenuate their own output, being able to coax softer tones through to overdrive, and being able to create nice rich harmonic tones for the vactrols/LPG/filters to bite into. Mangrove with its own shaping of tone and amplitude with “air” works super well with the natural response of the QMMG, using envelopes for creating very organic, acoustic quality tones.
Being such a big module I didn’t think it would be so well suited to smaller cases but being so versatile has proven otherwise. I’d even consider a tiny portable system of ansible, Maths, QMMG, dual Mangrove, Cold Mac and delay/reverb and would be pretty satisfied!
Some sounds I’ve created so far:
