Modular euro is the most addictive thing i've ever seen! As far as my experiences go:

what i was going to get for starters:



what i actually ordered:



the 12 blank hp is the new addac vco 701 thumbs up
Dead Banana

and i think I'm one of the lighter cases of eurocrack addiction zombie

let'[/img]s hear your stories!

That is not Eurocrack, this is Muffs. You are now addicted to the forum and the endless sound possibilities suggested by guys who have paid more for patchcables then you for your first order.

Eurocrack addiction starts when you combine wiggling with the forum. It ends when you branch out into the subforums and wait for interesting posts in "Production Techniques".

Live long and prosper.

i've had three different euro setups in the past four years. started when the options were almost exclusively doepfer, plan b, and livewire. probably bought and sold at least 21u of modules when it is all said. currently i'm trying to fill 6u.

21U?! :deadbanana:


not all at once, but my first system ended at 9u, bought, sold, and traded loads of modules including out of print plan b and hard to get livewire stock, and some harvestman and a make noise qmmg. probably b/s/t'd 15u within that system. then a year and a half later i put together a 3u boat, which i traded many things in and out. sold a few months later.

now i have just over 3u, and have traded things around there as well. become friends with the b/s/t forum if you don't want to be a dead banana

I once said all I needed were a couple of supplementary euro modules for my 5u. I am the guy who went for a vacation and almost never came back. wink

and just for the record, they need to rename the Tip Top "Happy Ending" to "The Never Ending Story".

I started with a 6U rack and it expanded exponentially. something about an instrument that you cant play "wrong" and that is infinitely expandable is really unique.

Plus the best thing about having friends with Euro systems too is you can patch them all together when you have a jam and its a very communal thing. theres no bravado like among guitar players etc, people are just all exploring sounds in their own time and doing their own thing. Very cool but also very addictive.

I still maintain though that there are much worse vices to have.....

well, put it this way. i had a DEFINITE budget ceiling of 2500 to cover modules, sequencing and midi-cv. that didn't work out so well. now i've spent over 6000 in under a year

it went from this:



to this:



pretty damn quickly......in fact there's now even more than when i took THOSE photos. i've spilled out into collecting guitar pedals too now for god's sake........

Because I can justify dropping as much on a single module as a lot of full synths cost. It starts with the Doepfer gateway drug and before you know it you are on that hard Cwejman stuff...

well, it used to be the "cheap" format. I recall getting (used) VCAs and other modules for about $25, then the $ tanked. And now many euro modules cost more than MOTM which got heat for such high prices at the time. Even though they remained about the same.
hmmmm....

Hi Mattech, what case is that lower one with the angled second tier? Great setup there btw, looks very effective

The only cure is to go Buchla or Serge. Does not cure you, but reduces the urge to get a fix quite drastically. But of course, you get new problems... bigger problems...

MFB Microzwerg in December 2011.
DIY uzeus powered toolbox case in January 2012.
Doepfer 9U case in February 2012.
??? in March 2012...

I feel I may have dived in too quickly... 40 modules incl. Maths, PP, Anti, huge number of Doepfer utilities have potential for years, yet I'm longing for more. Fortunately stuff like Cyclebox, E350 is not available at the moment, as I'd have a hell of a time telling my wife I need space for yet another case. What's funny, I would never have spent this much money on standalone synths...

I'm on muffcrack I think. Reading about the great stuff feeds the GAS.
Can't say I regret anything though, I'm having so much fun and creative vibes with the modular that I haven't touched my keys and vst instruments for three months. .

beware the cwejman

in your imagination you are still buying doepfer, in reality you are already functioning at Serge/Buchla cost levels. Plus, wowa puts special drugs in them. the very same ones they use in Whiskas catfood and Pringles. "I'll just buy one of these things" yeah, right.

Navs is his envoy on earth by the way. Be careful of visting his blog. In fact I'd put that guy on ignore right now

Looks like Doepfer Monster Base, probably will expand that way myself too. Mattech sure has a neat setup. He's a proper model of eurorack victim too (no offense Matt, I've been reading your posts with great interest). Maybe Matt should be touring in schools telling about the risks of euro modulars Guinness ftw!

I bought the WMD GC pedal, loved it.

Then they came out with the GC in eurorack, so I had to have that. Got a eurorack case, of course needed a a119....and it just went from there.

Now I have...a lot. https://vimeo.com/37036477

started off with a 9U case thinking i was giving myself lots of room to expand.

a year later - currently ordering a beautiful ash 15U 104 hp case from ross lamond.

not sure whether i should sell the 9U or keep it for when i run out of room in the 15U!

it's a doepfer monster base case. it's pretty cool, but if i was doing it again, i'd maybe get ross (microscopial) to build me a wooden case with a slightly different (but similar) design....in the UK/EU, that is.....or Goikes cases in the US

I'm actually more concerned about Pedal Popping than Eurocrack.

When I started my modular two years ago I had a couple of pedals - now I have a pile that is about knee height...

eek!

and is the reason your shoes have holes is cause you spent the money for brakes on modules?


It's because I don't have money to buy new rims when they get wonky (precious module money), so riding brakeless solves the problem lol

I grew my system until it was so big that I couldn't comfortably patch it anymore in the space that I have.

So now I'm selling off modules I use less to buy more expensive modules, thus shrinking the system while making it, ultimately, even more irrational. SlayerBadger!

The evil little b'stard of all is the subtlest form of Eurocracked. Which is when the module that is about to come out prevents you from buying the module that is already out. You think you are in control and being smart. But in fact you are in so deep that you will pledge all your bets on a horse that has not even left the stable let alone made it's way to the race track.

Dolly I await your pleasure, you little minx you. Lotsa Love

It starts innocently enough with a couple of modules and a product with the darkly comedic name of "Happy Ending". Then you just need another VCO/Filter/Mixer/etc. and you'll be "done."

That's just denial, of course, and all your friends start to whisper among themselves about interventions as you blithely claim you can "stop whenever I want." But you're only fooling yourself.

Before long you're turning tricks to support your habit (building Eurocrack switch modules, fancy hardwood cases, etc.) and becoming a supplier to more innocents. Friends and family, if you still have any that don't also wiggle (or enablers like my wife), have long given up on you having a "normal" life. You've long since stopped caring: you're so far down the rabbit hole that you listen for subtle differences between different modules' white noise outputs.

(I built and shipped 3 switch modules today, pray for me. Nutter! )

About 2 years ago I started out just wanting to buy a few modules to complement my future retro XS and now I have 11u of eurocrack and the XS is relegated to second fiddle status. That's my story.

I've started lying to my girlfriend..When she ask me how much a module cost I just knock a nought of. Except when she buys one for me as a present.
By the way I've got a two format habbit which could easy become three.
Dont have money for crack now

This hits too close to home. very frustrating

After discovering the HEK at NAMM this year I thought to myself "oh this isn't anywhere near as expensive as I'd thought!", and took the plunge. 6u and a couple thousand later I'm sitting here with an 1/8" jack hanging out of my vein. screaming goo yo MY ASS IS BLEEDING

I bought one of those... and will probably buy at least one more! Pray for ME - I got nothing to sell or make to support my habit. It all comes straight from my kids mouth (just kididng of course).

I enjoy the whole "addiction". It's WAY better than spending money partying and doing some shit street drugs - or whatever the kids are doing now-a-days at dem Skrillex raves. Damn ravers. At the end of a drug binge (addictive or not), you just have exhaustion and poor health. At the end of a modular binge it's beautiful music and the ability to go to sleep (unless you're rack planning, then you can't get to sleep as easily)... Rack planning is the difficult part. Once you get your basic core system in your hands, then it's a fun habit to have. Granted... you gotta give yourself a huge budget for the year, each year...
