It's a shame really. The 300 series modules are quite simply incredible in design, what I really love about them is the functional density. I personally hate large modular systems but with the Wiard you can do so much with relatively few modules. The classic VCO for example is a ridiculous module. Not only is it an incredible analogue VCO with more than comprehensive range, modulation and syncing abilities it also has a VCA, mixer, envelope generator, envelope follower, lag processor and god knows what else on it.

I think I might be leaning the Wiard way.

So many cool unreleased designs. So curious.
Hope to see the walkabout module.

I just saw this:

"A new product line is currently in development"


Does this mean that Malekko and Wiard are parting ways?


Or a new format completely?


Easel?

while i really hope the collaboration with malekko isn't coming to an end (my wiard euro modules are my favorite euros, hands down), i think i'm being drawn ever closer to making the plunge into a 300 system...

and no one try to dissuade me wink

an easel type thing could be something new... If by 'easel' you just mean a single package wiard creation meant to be a patchable but ultimately self-contained synth.

I'd rather buy stand alone units that supplied their own power and stuff while still 'playing nice' with the main modular formats in terms of patching than get into an entire new modular format, but that's just me I guess.

It kinda bugs me that the term Easel is getting taken away from the original instrument and is now starting to apply to any small-to-mid size semi portable modular setup

soon enough if you Google "music easel" all you're gonna find is a bunch of people's Eurorack setups help

Well, its not like buchla is doing anything with the name... Weren't like only 14 music easels ever made? If they weren't made of pure unobtainium you'd probably see the name applied more to the original.

Perhaps the Wiard Electroniums will finally see the light of day? I'd buy a Space Box...

The "14 easels" meme is not true. I'm don't know the actual number but I bet it's in the 50-100 range, at least.

It does seem like the Malekko stuff will come to an end after the upcoming modules Grant has said he will be doing, which I think is a real shame, given that most of the problems that occur with euro format (arguably all) can most likely be fixed.

That said, it will be awesome if Wiard modules continue to come out in a different format that is still affordable. Hard to imagine this happening the same way Josh has been able to do it with the big productions runs (and without the market base of euro users), hopefully these two are still working together. Wouldn't mind having a sensible, precise and clean power supply/distribution either.

Gotta be grateful that you can buy a module like the Envelator for $185 new. Regardless of whether I am using some new format or start robbing people to get a 300 system before they are all gone, a case full of Malekko Wiard is going to be next to it.

Of course all of this is entirely speculative and like everyone else I'm eager to get my hands on more Wiard stuff, so talking about it on the internet is what I resort to (instead of making more music).

i'm hoping grant will next develop an all in one portable patchable performance instrument with joy stick control, that sells for under $4K.
