  1. Unleash Your Creativity with the Allen Synthesis EuroPi: A Reprogrammable Multi-Function Controller

    The Allen Synthesis EuroPi is a reprogrammable multi-function controller that offers 6 CV outputs, one analogue input, one digital input, two knobs, two push buttons, and a 128x32px OLED display. This Eurorack module allows users to entirely re-write the program using any of the inputs and outputs for whatever they want, making it a highly versatile tool for unleashing one's creativity. The EuroPi can be used to replicate existing concepts, such as a quantiser or sample and hold, or users can write something entirely new. Plugging the module into a computer using a standard micro USB cable enables the user to reprogram the module, making it a flexible and dynamic addition to any setup.

  4. Exploring the Creative Possibilities: A Review of the Nonlinear Circuits Cellular Automata Eurorack Module

    The Nonlinear Circuits Cellular Automata Eurorack Module is a versatile pattern generator that can produce unique musical patterns. This module is a 16-cell gate and pattern generator that uses cellular automata rules 90 and 150. The module requires a clock signal and a signal on one of the seed inputs to start a new process or modify the current one. In this review, we explore the creative possibilities of this module and its 3 CV outputs, two based on the activity on each half of the circuit, and one reflecting the pattern generated by the active cells. The Cellular Automata module uses CMOS chips and op amps, without microprocessors, and it is a challenging build, available as a partially assembled PCB set for USD 25 or fully assembled for USD 280.
