Introduce yourself, or say Hello!


I'm Wiktorion, or Viktor which is my real name.

I live in Sweden where I run a small art studio called Studio Odessa.

I've been dabbling with modular synthesizers since I was 18. That might sound like I'm old in the game, but I'm 23 years old, so many of you are far more experienced than I! :) I've got a dreaming, hazy mind, which colours everything in my environment, especially my music; I make Electronic Shoegaze, or Dream Pop(www.soundcloud.com/vpilkington).

I also dream about modulars constantly, hypothetical systems and configurations, which has lead me to different modular system planners.

A friend told me about Modulargrid and I was instantly hooked! This is where I can see all the latest modules and plan my dream systems, or calculate power needs for my current one. I've also been trusted by head honcho Knut to keep the module library clean of gunk and duplicates, and also to keep the forum nice and tidy. Looking forward to finally get to meet you all (I've been oogling at your systems, you know!)


Hi!

I'm John Noble, and modular synths changed my life. I run The Eurorack Database ( http://eurorackdb.com ), the Fully Patched Music series of modular/experimental/analog music events in the San Diego area ( https://www.facebook.com/fullypatchedmusic ), I make some custom synth stuff like modules and cases, and I perform & record solo with my Eurorack modular as "prettyhowtown" ( http://aprettyhowtown.bandcamp.com/ ) and as a member of a couple of other projects. I also seem to have turned into a festival promoter. Life is getting really weird, and I like it that way. :-)

I've been working with Solitud since shortly after the launch of ModularGrid (my site supplies a data feed), and I really admire his talent, persistence, and attitude. He's a treasure. His music is really good, too: check it out! https://soundcloud.com/solitud


John, I remember on day one you where the very first ModularGrid visitor.
What a pleasure you are also the first regular poster here!


Hello, I am Ryan! I'm glad to see that there's a forum here(was it always here , or just recent?) Find this site pretty cool, I really respect and appreciate how much work went into this site!

Welcome 3001 and johnnn :)

I might as well introduce myself as well. My name is Jesse and I've been obsessed with the eurorack format for a little over 3 years now. Though I've ogled over modular systems in the past, almost everything I did has been "in the box" with Ableton, Reaktor, etc. Everything started to align once I paid attention to eurorack beyond the original Doepfer and Analogue Systems lines. Of course, that was 3 years ago, and what's available now in the format just is insane! I've gone from a room full of monosynths and gear like the monomachine and nord g2 to an almost all modular setup. (Can't get rid of the machinedrum!)

I'm so glad Modular Grid now has a forum, as I have spent countless hours using this site to re-arange my system, plan new purchases, and generally just get excited with new modules appearing almost every day. Solitud has created a wonderful and intuitive environment to explore this stuff.

I will be one of the moderators here, along with Wiktorian and Solitud.

You can find my scraps of module demos and detritus at:

Looking forward to seeing this forum grow!


Hi. Nelson Baboon here. I am an egocentric troll who has been banned from muffwiggler at least 50 times by now. I also own the world's only cunning umbrella, and my music can be found in various places on the internet.

Jeez, I forgot to implement the ban mechanism
Well, at least it won't get boring then I guess.
Maybe this is a strong marketing point: the world's only forum which has a Baboon

Ha. We can all get along just fine! This is an place for modular synth discussions, and there won't be any need for incendiary topics if we keep it on topic. :)

Now let's get posting.


Hello. Thanks for the much-needed initiative.

I would vote for a less format-specific approach myself - otherwise it will surely end up as an euro forum and the barely relevant others on the sidelines. So I am not sure how much I will contribute here, but I wish you good luck anyway.


Uh, oh! Could this be the place for the occasional babooney-tune, interspersed with incendiary wit and remarkably troll-like observational humour?
What's going on, Solitud?
Are you gonna be opening a Euro-based online Modular Shoppe soon?

No such plans.


Lonely wolf checking in! :)


Hello world,
I've only been into modulars for a few months, but have been into music production for nearly 15 years. I'm based in NYC, and really enjoy spending my rent money on eurorack modules.


Hi, Pyscheprog here, just want to say this place looks like I could feel at home. Really just finding out what modular synths are about lately eh, have also been using Reason for a while now and love being in the synth world, I do have some hardware and va synths.
I was looking at getting into modular synths :-) and I found this site!! I hope to gain some invaluable knowledge here and put it to good use! I also have started building a rack and hopefully I'm going the right way :-)

cheers Pyscheprog

Welcome ... and crazy patch :)


Hello folks, I have been a long time techno producer, and have owned (and still do) most of the iconic gear over the years, but when I found modular, I feel that I have finally found people building instruments built for the way I make music. At this point I have built some 12 rows of 104hp in Euro...... I mostly do techno/house, but also do some more experimental and ambiance sort of stuff. Check my tunes at: https://soundcloud.com/omniscientrecords
Recently my friend who is getting into modular said to me, "have you seen that site Modulargrid?". I simply replied, "I get my news from that site...".

Thanks so much Solitud, much appreciated. Your stuff is totally amazing as well, a bunch of stuff I totally dig. Love your vocoder and dub style... Too bad you arent in the SF Bay Area, I would love to have you over to jam!!


Hi guys and gals! Vinnie Lee here.
I'm a producer and mixer for a small record company here in Beijing. And I'm also a guitarist. Been playing music for 14 years, and got my MS-20 Mini and SQ-1 not long ago. Trying to go modular, and happy to find a place like this!
I want to say thank you to everyone who works on this site, you did a great job! Keep on the good work!


So yeah, hi everybody. This is a great a place to be, thanks a lot for creating it!

I am into modular synthdom since 2015 09 and happened on MG while searching the web for info on modular/eurorack.
After starting out on a Yamaha CX5m a looong time ago I fiddled with VST the last couple of years.
I was really taken by the combination of several emulations of the Synthi AKS/VCS 3 and Audio Mulch's Metasurface.

However the mouse is a poor interface for a synth so I began to eye modular hardware and quickly zoomed in on eurorack.
After about half a year of research I decided to build a small eurorack from cardboard and a bunch of used modules I had pieced together. Now I have 6Ux84 and guess what -- no space left! Does that make me a typical wiggler?

Anyway, so far I am enjoying the ride even though the move from all digital/total recall to analog and volatile/momentary was quite the culture shock =0 I learned a lot during the past months, reading up, hunting modules - and most importantly, using them - and MG helped a great deal, so thanks again!

Currently I am researching options to organize the lovely noises I create into meaningful sequences, so a clock divider and a knob recorder are on my radar. I am also very interested in the art of modular live improvisation and controllers other than keyboards.

cheers,
Ralf

Hello All

Just been bitten by the modular synth bug after a background that mostly involves jamming on bass guitar etc. Looking at buying my first modular system and trying to weigh up all the options! Any help is much appreciated :)

Hello again

Doing well really loving this site

I've gained a little control after a buying spree

Still have some gear in boxes after a move dabocle.

Posting new track in the other thread.

CHECK IT OUT PLEASE.

Also new record coming out soon look for that.

The name is Camus,

I have worked in the box for most of the last ten years. I had a good year and decided it was worth an investment in modular gear. I fell into the rabbit hole and filled out my starter travel case.

My ambitions are to expand and redesign the classic Roland and Moog sounds within my own rack. The Ripples module has really hit done it for me. MMF from SSF is another, this PING business is interesting.

Now if only I can wrap my head around Gates/Triggers and Unipolar or Bipolar and what it means to my output.
Sometimes, I do appreciate the engineering of a synth like a Juno-106, Moog Minitaur, or even Digital Synths like a D-50.

Hope to get to know all of you better.

Here's some music, pre-modular era.

Hey all, I'm Phil from the UK.
Even having 15U x 168hp, I won't lie to you, I don't really know what I'm doing. I could spend hours patching and come up with nothing. I suppose that's the nature of it though, I'm learning.....


Hey, I'm Oscar from Berlin.
I'm still in highschool so I don't really earn Money yet, but I ve been fascinated by Synthesizers for quite a while now and already own some non-modular stuff . Currently I'm looking for a job I as a minor can do and earn some money to spend on modules, a lowcost case (probably 6U) and just start it. Of course I already did some research online how to get into modular, watched Molten Music, Tuesday Night Machines and similar channels to get myself educated a bit. I came here to get some more personal advice, this community is always called nice and cooperative. I really like many genres of electronic music (and can't decide where to go with the modular) . As an introduction I'm planning to invest into a Kastle by Bastl Instruments. Do you approve of that?
Hope to hear from some more experienced synth-lovers soon
Oscar


Hi all, I'm Phil from Kent, the garden of England.
I've been into electronic music for years but didn't really have the money to invest in anything other than software based systems.
I've been building my modular for around 2 years now and still don't know what direction to take it in. I'm very inspired by Colin benders and Berlin school.


Hello All,

I am Kristof aka Snuckyfication from Belgium, Antwerp province.
I have long been busy in the music but now only as an amateur. I only just discovered the modular synths.
The complexity and complete openness of the system and what you can do with it, draws me to it I guess.
Although I love challenges, I think this one will be a serious learning curve. And since I am in my middle forties, it all tends to go a little bit more slow than twenty years ago.....This might be the start of my midlife....
Are there events around modular in Belgium or neighbouring countries?
Kind regards,

Snuckyfication


Hmmm...meh, I'd rather let this do the explaining: https://daccrowell.bandcamp.com/releases

Only part of the explanation, tho...there's a lot more going on, plus more stuff where that came from on the horizon. I just finished (as of 26 Jan 18) slapping together a new one for Magnatune (http://magnatune.com) entitled "West: Nocturnal Music in Five Movements" that oughta be out sometime (I presume) in the next month or so. No driving or operating heavy machinery while listening, I should note...


Hey everyone!
First of all, I want to express thanks to all the people involved in running Modulargrid, this helps me (and others, for sure) to plan and sort out all the modular things. You guys rock!

Also, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Oleg and I am running a German-based experimental project, which creates music by the process of conducting jam sessions, improvising during these sessions, recording them, and then using best parts from those sessions to generate so called "Jam session sections"; these are generally raw sound clips that are mostly left unprocessed apart from using a simple cross-fade in order to tie two or more clips together, or occasional compressing. These clips then are uploaded to Soundcloud and are usually free for download.

I am fairly new to Eurorack and (like yours) my rack is slowly but constantly growing, so that I am able more and more to use solely Eurorack modules, for example the latest upload:

Since I have a lot to learn, I would love to receive constructive criticism. You don't have to follow me or like my uploads, but I'd encourage you to leave a comment, especially if you have suggestions for improvement!


Hi everyone, Paul here! Looking to jump into the modular world since I have a deep love for sounds. I've been playing experimental music solo and in bands for about 10 years now and looking for advice. I'm going to post a thread in the Racks forum and go into more detail about what I'm thinking about, but basically I'd say I'm looking to create both "sci-fi" kind of sounds and more harsh textures.
