I've stumbled across this item on eBay and am thinking about buying it, it's cheap.
I can't see the Manufacturer on here, so I am cautious. 0

Has anyone bought modules from Hampshire electronics and would recommend them ?.

or if you have any other recommendations for Buffered multiples, please share them ?.


Good and solid :

Less expensive, good and solid :
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/doepfer-a-180-3


doepfer - a little bit more expensive but built like a tank - there will be people with ones that are over 20 years old still going strong

mutable instruments links - about 3 times the price but not only do you get 2 buffered mults and a mixer, one of the mults can also be used as a pecision adder and a mixer - very very useful module

or just take a gamble on this one - it's 30quid! do you have anything to check it with?


Thanks, I think I'll go with either the Doepfer or MI.


Hi Slammer22,

The Erica Synths - Black 8 Multi is so far the best buffered multiple I have. Being "the best" as in comfortable to use and from a patching point of view. The bad news is that it's sold out :-( I only got one of it and wanted to buy a few more but then I was already too late. I checked this with Erica Synths but it's really sold out :-(

The Black 8 Multi is so logical to use and it has four outputs per input channel, no other modules (with 4 HP width) can do that, as far as I know, in such logical and comfortable way.

Indeed the Doepfer A-180-3 is another good choice.

Other option might be the ACL - Multi II that exists of two parts, a buffered multiple and a passive multiple, 6 HP, so it's comfortable to use while patching.

Good luck in searching for a good buffered multiple and kind regards, Garfield.

Thanks Garfield.
I've bought the MI Links, was a decent price.


@ GarfieldModular

For the Erica Synths - Black 8 Multi, maybe you can find it in Greece :
https://www.synthesizer.gr/Erica-Synths/erica-synths-black-8-multi-v2

and at Thomann (the link don't work) :
Search "Erica Synths Black Multi"


Hi Jihel,

Thanks a lot for your reply. The shop in Greece indeed still sells them but at what price...? Wow!

The Thomann one the "Black Multi" that's the successor of the "Black 8 Multi" (Erica Synths told me). The Black Multi has only 3 outputs instead of 4, it has an octave/offset switch per multiple instead. I rather had the Black 8 Multi, the perfect (dual) buffered multiple...

I need to give the Greece shop a thought, thank you very much! Kind regards, Garfield.

Hi Garfield - I just checked the synthesizer.gr link and they seem 'reasonable', how much were they before?


Hi Jim,

The only one 8 Multi I have, I bought that one for Euro 42.35 (including VAT) and guess from whom?

From Erica Synths' their website-shop. If I knew at that time that it was such a good offer and that they were going to be sold out and that it is such a good multiple, I would straight away have bought some more...

Dealers had the opportunity to buy at a reduced price this and other modules from Erica Synths as well, hence my reaction that the price is far too high. Kind regards, Garfield.

Hi Garfield

I see why you were shocked then!
