What about…

is our category to give you ideas about products and their uses. It is a series of hopefully inspirational texts that are NOT supposed to be reviews.

What about… CV processing?

Using and working with control voltage (CV) in your modular synthesizer is essential, but often people tend to focus more on audio signals and audio effects. However there is a lot that can be done with CV signals to widen the potential of your modular synthesizer....

Do you really know what you are doing? Oscilloscope comparison!

Using an oscilloscope is an excellent way to understand what happens to the signals in your modular system. The paths of the electrical current are as different as the modules used to process it. In complex patches, it can be confusing how and where your audio and...

What about … Sequencing short gates – TRIGGER

Trigger are shorter than gates but not at all less important, there are dedicated use cases for both. So what are triggers and gates good for? An ADSR will always stay behind its potential if only used with triggers. Because of the circuit that is responsive to not...
