This weekends patch. Only using 2 of the 4 voices. Also first patch with the new Rene, which has replaced my trusty dusty Klee for the moment…
Testing a new addition to my altered readymades utility box. £4 PWM frequency generator from banggood
NAGRA! +twenty nagra
I found that “almost there” usually is as close to “there” as you can get. Once you’re actually “there”, “there” tends to move somewhere else completely
But that certainly looks like a nice place to be.
That’s very true. I declared my modular to be at “version 1.0” about two years after I got into Eurorack, after several “I’m almost there” posts. And then a couple of weeks later, I was already moving to 1.05…
Now 5 months after that, I have an ER-301 pre-purchased and am trying to figure out what 2.0 looks like I’m thinking of downsizing, because I don’t think I need 13 VCOs + two Rings + an ER-301 + Microbrute + drone toys + software for the minimalist sort of music that I make.

To be fair, I don’t mean 13 modules – I’m counting E370 as four, Hertz Donut + Kermit + Double Helix as two each, and Plaits, Tides and Warps. This is in 9U 84HP + 6U 104HP.
The E370 was sent to me by Paul Schreiber for beta testing, because he appreciated my efforts testing the E352. I thought it was overkill for me, but was I going to say no?
My current thinking for downsizing is I’ll have the ER-301, E370, and 2x Rings for sound sources and keep Tides for modulation duties; I might hang onto Plaits too. And I’ll do a bit of consolidation among my other modules as well to tidy it all up.
Oh, listing them makes it seem much more sensible. Besides, many of those aren’t traditional VCOs. I was imagining something like:
That wouldn’t be my style, but it would be fun to play with for a bit. I’d probably make one ridiculous massive drone with it.
Cross-modulate all the things…
Rough and ready voltage source knob so I can DC offset bipolar CV signals to correctly control polar modules. Tried to make a scale & offset module from scratch but hit some gumption traps, for now this - thru an attenuator and mixed with the CV - does the job
beautiful!! do you use any of the midi sequencing software for it?
They are great machines.
Indeed, I use Cubase on it which is my main and preferred computer sequencer and have played about with DrT’s KCS which is pretty good as well with an excellent interface.
