Was asked to play a small label fest for the autumn equinox and put this thing together:

Using the same rack as last time, -MCO, +Pluck and +DTF to help explore some different textures.

ModularGrid Rack

Perhaps surprisingly, Clouds is really the star of this one. I read an interview with Emelie Gillet awhile back where she shared some of her disappointment around the lack of randomness and modulation that folks use with Clouds, so I picked up the Doepfer A-118-2. That plus Ochd can really take things in a texturally varied, almost 20th century classical direction at times. Eurorack... very interesting format.

Anyway, hope you enjoy if you give it a listen!


Hi Steve,

Cool stuff again. Amazing how much live/streaming activities you are involved in lately. Nice performance :-)

Keep up the good work, thanks a lot for sharing this and kind regards, Garfield.


Thanks @GarfieldModular! Now that I think of it, maybe we should all do a ModularGrid forum stream one day 🤔🤔🤔


Hi Steve,

Yes, that might be an idea, bundle all our modular synths together into one large cacophony :-) Might be quite interesting! Shall we use Soundjack for it, or what are you using? Problem with Soundjack is that you can't give a clock signal to each other, not at least that I know of. Another problem I have with Soundjack is that I can't get the sound from my computer to my monitors for some weird reason.

Kind regards, Garfield.


@GarfieldModular, the shows I've played have been using twitch which works pretty well for one performer or group at a time. Might be a growing modular audience there too.
