EURORACK!! The new trend is here and all the cool kids are doing it! Well, nope, nope, it’s not new, and hardly any kids are doing it, mostly middle-aged nerds that can afford.
Growing up in a computerized world with access to tons of free and mind-blowingly powerful open source plugins has been revolutionary and life-changing, but many people also feel that it has cursed them with overwhelmingly monotonous computer interactions.
The Zlob VnIcursal Vca is a 6 channel 8hp ota-based linear vca with an additional mix output that sums any of the 6 outputs when they are not patched. The module is 35mm deep so it will most likely fit your skiff case. The panel is made of laser cut acrylic.
The Kilpatrick Audio PHENOL is the 2nd semi-modular synthesizer I've owned (the first being the Korg MS-20), and it is also the closest thing to a modular. Soon after getting my hands on it I started realizing what the modular fuzz was really all about.
The PHENOL packs a lot of modular features in a small package. This includes a very simple but useful divider and powerful multi-mode envelopes--all things that are not very common outside the modular world.
I recently made an unboxing video and demo of the Kilpatrick PHENOL semi-modular analog synthesizer. The PHENOL turned out to be a very fun and inspiring synthesizer so I decided to make another video of it interacting with the Arturia MicroBrute via CV.
