What's all the noise?

ModularGrid is a database and planner for modular synthesizers

MOTM is also referred as 5U format. It shares the same height with the MU format but differs in width. MOTM is 1.75" wide per unit.

Show me the MOTM modules

There are 376 MOTM modules to choose from. Users build 1181 Racks in this universe.

    We have some good news! After the big wave of interest on the Superbooth we were almost immediately sold out. But the production is up and running again and a next small batch of masters, P2B8, P10 and G8 will hit our store at exactly 16:00 UTC this Friday.

    Our SUPERBOOTH21 announcements conclude with Step 8, a sequential tracking/sampling register in 16 HP. Step 8 represents a new type of modular building block: a sequential tracking/sampling register, which can be configured to provide a wide variety of functions. These include sequencers, sequential switches, counters, analogue shift registers... More details: https://joranalogue.com/step-8

    Announcing a new module, Inertia! Inertia is a universal movement simulator. It generates output curves from input stimuli and the weight of its own motion—that is, its inertia. Just as Newton described the motion of the planets and the motion of earthly bodies with a single set of laws, so too Inertia brings together several seemingly disparate musical functions with a single, elegant abstraction.

    The flagship quad envelope generator gets a firmware update. Now V1.23 brings various fixes and subtle improvements. Thank to Rainer for the feedback ;-)
