  1. Drumming Delight: Traffic, Particles, and More for Modular Rhythm Evolution!

    In this article, we explore the combination of the "jasmine-olive-trees-traffic" and "patching-panda-particles" modules to enhance your modular rhythm evolution. The "jasmine-olive-trees-traffic" module is a powerful trigger-based CV controller that allows you to control multiple sounds from a single oscillator using triggers. It features three rows of knobs with corresponding outputs and a global trigger output for seamless synchronization. The CV outputs can range from +-8V and can be set to unipolar as well. The "patching-panda-particles" module, on the other hand, offers four channels of trigger modulation and pattern variation. With various features like shifting, scrambling, muting, and probability triggers, it allows you to create complex and groovy patterns effortlessly. By combining these modules, you can take your rhythmic ideas to the next level and explore new sonic possibilities. Watch them in action and discover the potential of your modular setup.

  2. Mute Signals with Ease Using the Eurorack SIGNAL SWITCH Module: A Review

    Looking for an easy and discreet mute solution for your Eurorack setup? Look no further than the SIGNAL SWITCH module by ph modular. This MUTE module consists of eight identical stages, each with an illuminated push button for muting incoming signals. The use of vactrols helps to avoid clicks and adds a fading effect when muting the signal. The module also includes an internal routing feature and a jumper on the back to split the module into two independent floors. The SIGNAL SWITCH module is available as an assembled module and can be shipped worldwide.

  3. Introducing ARLPG: The Compact and Powerful Active Resonant Low Pass Gate Eurorack Module

    The ARLPG is a new eurorack module that is an active resonant low pass gate, based on vactrols. It provides a unique resonance circuit with a large amplitude at medium and low frequencies and decreases towards high frequencies to prevent uneven auditory perception. The module also features a regeneration knob that works like a VCA and allows for the fine-tuning of resonance and filter sound. It has two operating modes, HP and LP, and is friendly for gate signal management. The ARLPG is a compact and powerful tool for filtering signals.

  5. Exploring the Unique Percussive Capabilities of Expert Sleepers Pandora: The Unconventional Bandpass Filter/Distortion Processor

    The Expert Sleepers Pandora is a unique Eurorack bandpass filter/distortion processor that combines power MOSFET transistors and vactrols. This module offers voltage control over the filter, gain, and filter feedback, with a wet/dry mixer also under voltage control. The Pandora also features a range switch that drops the filter response several octaves, allowing for the synthesis of percussion sounds when triggered. This 100% analogue module provides unconventional percussive capabilities for electronic music production.

  6. Exploring the Creative Possibilities of the Abyss Devices LPG VCA Eurorack Module

    The Abyss Devices LPG VCA Eurorack module offers creative possibilities for sound sculpting with its dual passive LPG and vactrols in sockets. It comes with handmade vactrols made of carefully selected parts, which can be easily experimented with or DIYed by swapping them out of the sockets. The module also features a fall trimmer that controls the vactrol response curve and volume, allowing for a range of natural long vactrol response time to very short decay. Additionally, the module functions best with short triggers to produce a snappy sound, and an LED monitors the CV in socket signal. Inserting CV from LFO, ADSR, sequencers, and other sources into the CV in sockets allows it to be used as a VCA. Finally, the module has no power consumption and a muted output when no CV in signal is present.
