Everything in the modular domain is non-saveable and vanish the moment you pull the patch cable – quite the opposite of what I normally do, relying on the ability to save my patches and release them as part of a soundset.
With modulars I design my own ultimate analog synth, achieving sounds and modulation not possible with common software synths and not much can compete with the creativity and fun in hands-on-controls!
This is the Luftrum Modular aka The Ambient Rack II a 9U, 104HP Eurorack system. The U is short for Rack Unit, a measure to describe the height of rack modules and a Eurorack module is 3U high. The HP stands for Horizontal Pitch meaning the width of rack mounted equipment. My current rack can be seen on Modulargrid – here you can build and plan your own Eurorack.
I got a complete module list at the bottom of the page but the rack contains a majority of Mutable Instruments, Make Noise, Doepfer and Intellijel modules with a few other brands respresented, mainly selected with ambient sequences, drones and soundscapes in mind. The modules are sitting in a handmade quality walnut case from Germany. The craftsmanship of the case is stunning. I’m a frequent visitor on the very friendly Muffwiggler forum, pure modular talk. Newcomers are very welcome, drop by and say hi.
