If you can't beat em (build your own 303 with modules), join em (buy an M303 instead). Giving the M303 a workout here, quite nice, though I wouldn't mind some more modulation points.

Hope you all enjoy πŸ•Ί


Hi Steve,

Oh yes, you got a real nice rhythm there, along with some nice, fun and interesting sounds as well! How about some more of the same :-) ?

Thanks Steve for sharing this and kind regards, Garfield.

Thanks @GarfieldModular! In a way this is a pretty simple track and not really showing the power of modular at its fullest, but I like simplicity sometimes. More developed tunes will hopefully be on the way soon though πŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ»


@troux I love the simplicity and tasteful use of effects and filtering here. I could listen to stuff like this all day.
It's funny, the deeper I get into modular the more I am attracted to minimalism.


Thanks @farkas, I definitely lean a bit more maximalist in my modular tunes to date, but as with all things it's about balance, so I've been working lately to see if I can build something I really enjoy from the ground up and with a smaller patch rather than assuming it needs another layer and more complexity to keep it interesting. This does seem to provide deeper results!


Thought I'd take a Serge crack at this one too and see how they compare, check it out:

Hi Steve,

Oh, that's a great sound! Yummy :-)

Can't you do a bit more of that sound? It's a sound that begs for more! Thanks a lot and I hope to hearing more from your Serge style, kind regards, Garfield.

Great sounds once again. I swear the Serge stuff just sounds so natural. Woody and watery. Awesome.

Not surprising if you know the history...Serge Tcherepnin cooked up a set of basic modules with a lot of the sound based on Buchla gear. He came up with it because there was too much squabbling going on over CalArts' Buchla gear, so what he did was to set up an ad hoc "assembly line" that had builders setting up soldering stations on courtyard balconies there, passing the modules from one balcony to the next...builders paid for the boards and components, plus a prepunched panel full of holes which you then covered with a paper control panel layout then jammed the pot shafts and jacks through this.

Quite an interesting cast of characters were in the assembly line, too...two that I know of offhand were Kevin Braheny (best known for his Hearts of Space releases back in the 1980s/90s) and Chaz Smith (instrument builder and steel guitarist extraordinaire). But that Serge sound owes a lot to the Buchla 100 and the beginnings of the 200 systems.
