I hope I am doing this right. Any pointers for a noob?
I actually super like this layout.

Maybe get my hands on:
* uScale v2
Pretty boops I will not buy:
* Audio Damage Eos
* Discrete SVVCF
* Circadian Rhythm
* Malekko Varigate or Voltage Block
* Xaoc Praga, Samara, or Belgrad
* Ornament & Crimes

Hi modular people!
Any feedback on this rack would be hugely appreciated. I am familiar with analogue synths and modular synthesis in software (Reaktor Blocks). Zero experience with Eurorack but I am looking to dive in. I produce techno and have put out a few releases on minor independent labels.
My aims for this rack are:
1. Use it to produce actual music, not just messing around or "collecting" modules.
2. Make phat analogue sounds and sequences; hence the analogue VCO, multimode and Minimoog style filters.
3. Get creative/complex/unpredictable sequences; René seems to be at the top of many people's lists for this.
4. Make unique, weird and wonderful sounds; I saw some videos of the Shapeshifter and was blown away by the sound and possibilities.
5. Modulating FX and "playing" them live; the Blackhole DSP looks good but I am very much open to suggestions.
6. Syncing with and recording into DAW (Ableton).
So I am wondering:
Am I missing any essential modules given the above?
Are there any duplicates or non essential modules that I could (for now) do without?
Thank you and happy noise making to all!
I'm just dipping my toe into the modular synth pond, or ocean.
Would appreciate any feedback or suggestions of the rack I've built.
My approach was to create a rack that can interface with my Drumbrute, Microbrute and DAW while also acting as a standalone instrument.
Most of my decisions were made by watching Youtube videos to find sounds that I like.
One big question too, how does the power work with the different rack options? Would I need a power supply with the shelf? How about the Doepfer?
Hey guys, as promised here is the first example that maybe shows a hint of what I had in mind. My current setup is a Steinway Grand built 1907, a condenser mic and then a modular setup mainly built around a 4ms DLD, an Erbe Verb and Clouds. Comments are more than welcome...
Do you have experience Doepfer A-188-1 BBD Series modules?
If you want to make the best Flanger effects, so what Doepfer-188 series module is the right choice?
128, 256, 512 or 1024 stages BBD module?
I know that 1024 can make a flanger effect, but would it be 512, 256, 128 better, deeper, prettier etc.?
(Note. I know that better options are available to make the flanger effect, but if you limit the discussion, however, only Doepher A-188 series.)
The marketplace exists for 2 years now. It's a place where strangers buy and sell stuff over the internet and so I am somewhat amazed that I am hearing very little complains about dubious transactions.
But there are people who had problems. For them it is worth nothing, that it's working pretty fine for everyone else.
In most cases people complain about defective modules, but there are cases where users reported that they never received anything. When two parties are involved there are always two opinions. One shouting fraud, the other shouting liar.
I have no idea how to deal with these situations and I cannot decide who is right and who is not.
I have a bad feeling about banning people on the call of others. I am also not sure if a bad trader thread won't lead to even more drama when users find themselves wrongfully on a list.
I like to hear some opinion.
Can someone please help me.. Im looking to build myself this exact rack. Already got the mother 32. I was looking to build my own case with the doepfer DIY kit. Will this Kit supply enough power for the modules I want? I think I already know the answer and its yes but please can someone correct me if I am going to come across any problems with these modules and the DIY kit. Thanks!!
Hi you modular pros,
I have an idea in my mind, but I'm not sure how to build it into reality. But maybe you could help me. I drafted my current setup (only the relevant modules) in the picture below.
I want to play an audio signal into my modular system, this should be recorded at channel 1 of the DLD for let's say 16 bars, then I want the DLD to play these 16 bars (modulated through the Clouds) and at the same time record the incoming audio signal into channel 2. After another 16 bars the channels should be switched, so that channel 1 is recording again and channel 2 is on playback (modulated through the Erbe-Verb).
What do I need to do/change/add to make this using the current setup?
Any hint is appreciated!
I'm glad to announce the OCS-2 synthesizer!
OCS-2 is a digital, semi-modular, analogue style synthesizer.
It is more design as a stand alone synth, but it is also eurorack compatible (50HP).
I think it can be a good way to start a modular setup, or to have a small hardware for performance if you can't move your big eurorack box.
Or even to add 1 synth voice to an already existing setup.
This synth is composed with :
2 VCO providing 15 different waveforms (including few atypical one) 1 VCF : multi-mode, including a 24db/octave low pass resonant filter 1 VCA 1 ADSR 3 LFO : 2 with configurable waveform, 1 with CV frequency control 1 custom CV generator with 4 algorithms : Attack Release, dual LFO, Random, Step 1 audio effects processor with 4 effects : Distortion, Delay, Bitcrush, Waveshaper 1 ring modulator 1 CV controlled mixer for VCO1 and VCO2 2 octaves keyboard with portamento 1 digital matrix to connect signals to modulation faders 1 stereo line-IN with envelope follower and gate control 1 MIDI input : note / velocity / pitch bend / modulation wheel / control change 3 analogue CV IN and 1 GATE IN 1 light sensor
It provide a digital connection matrix, so you don't need cable, it's very compact and even comes with it's own box!!!
Ok, I know, it's digital and many don't like that.
but let's listen to its sound, watch videos and talk about it later.

Actually it's been a big pain for me, having to edit different modules because the uploader doesn't get how the tag system works. I just had to edit a new oscillator which includes an internal quantizing option because the manufacturer/uploader tagged it as "Quantizer" amongst other things.
Is it that difficult to understand that the tagging system is here to help finding modules based on their features and not to promote the features of a module? The question people should be asking themselves when uploading is "Can I use this as a [feature]?" not "Does the module contain a [feature]?". Sheesh.
Can we add a question above the tag area when a new module is created, or a message that prompts people not to over-do the tags? It's irritating.
I'll say "Clouds" from Mutable Instruments. Incredible module for sound design stuff, u have a lot of fuctions in this super cool module, u can also "freeze" the sound, and than u can play with it (changing pitch, adding reverb/delay, cut the greeze sample into small pieces and so on).
Yeah. I think that you really need a Clouds
And maybe, 4ms SMR.
Hi, I am currently building my first modular setup. I am looking to effectively transform samples (music or sound design) from my DAW and transform it with my modular to either compose structures (macro composition) or to shape small sound objects. I am planning a 3 row system. Roughly, the 1st row would be audio inputs/midi and granular modules. 2nd would be a basic synth with functions (VCO, VCF, VCA, maths, ADSR). 3rd row would be the mixer and some playable modules (rene). What are some of the best modules for my purpose? Is that a good approach? This is a long term project so budget is not an issue; I will slowly be buying piece by piece.
Input and tips will be very much appreciated. Thanks for your time. Cheers.
Thanks, but that is the manual for the MK1, this panel uses the MK2 Turing Machine and Pulses expanders which may have different power requirements. The Backpack PCB does not exist for the MK2. Also that number doesn't make a distinction between positive and negative rails. I'd be glad to update the power requirements but a canonical source is needed.

All smooth, seamless transactions. Friendly, patient and helpful communication, fast shipping, reliable folks.
I am pleased to recommend each and everyone of them!
Actually the only really unpleasant experience I've had here on modulargrid was with @kires, who sold me a broken optodist. Since he refused to take it back, I got it repaired by a local technician who fixed several cold solder joints and attested very poor soldering overall (this guy knows his job, he's been working for the likes of Kraftwerk). I submitted the bill to @kires asking if he would accept to at least participate in the costs. In response he treated me a fraudster trying to wangle rebates out of him.
