Euro Jomox modules: do i save for them ?

Post by FatRocky » Thu Mar 06, 2014 11:24 am

I want to know if i really start saving to get those two Jomox eurorack drum modules
I'd like to make drum sounds that are original , either aggressive or gentle.
Of course building with different modules is the way to go, but i want to do it in a portable monorocket , so i need drum modules.
i love my tiptop hihats , but not planning to get more clones.

I know there are people who already have the Jomox ,
Could you please share clips , demos, videos or just words? I want to know how flexible and compatible with other modules they are.
Am i expecting the best drum modules out there?

also, i'd like to know (from users, not sellers) if all that space in the panel is really worth it.
I'm more interested in flexibility for sound design rather than storage/setup recall facilities .
Would also like to know if the modules with all those display parameters can be enough intuitive and pleasurable to use. For example , i love my BLD, there's lots of options, especially when patching (or selfpatching) envelopes etc to it's FM2 etc, it gets very intuitive once is already explored and it makes amazing kicks and other percussive sounds. I think it's size is worth it and i expect the same for Jomox ( if i get them~)

Thanks :tu:

Some good demos would be great, they are a tad bit pricey for just picking one up.
There's a lot of activity, a lot. There are a pair right next to the hydrophone, those are probably the loudest animals. There's one single seal that is on my left and it seems to be watching the mother and pup that were near the hydrophone.

not much in terms of diversity though

Thanks for the demos !

They changed my mind about these modules :party:

@meska : Any news concerning the MBrane demo ?

Great demo! Thanks for that.

To me it looks like it fills the gap between external, flexible kicks and doing it in the modular, which depends on your rig. I really like it actually if just for the presets.

I have both the Base and the Brane, I think they're awesome. These were the spark that got me into modular. They sound great. The Brane is more flexible than the Base, as it can make kick type sounds, and toms, and go a lot further out. The ModBase makes good kick sounds of many different flavors.

I upgraded from the XBase 09, the ModBase is similar to the kick that's on there. I think they're offered as being the exact same thing as the Mbase and MBrane, except with 4 CV inputs and linear FM, and that bus bar in the back.

Same midi control, etc.

When I got them, the power cable's notch was the wrong direction on both units, so watch out for that. Could be that one end was correct, and that's the end that went on the module, not sure... these were my first ones.

I enjoy the flexibility of having CV control, and midi control, best of both worlds. Need to figure out a solution when I enclose them in a case, and get them out of the HEK, cause the midi ports are on the back of the PCB. They're also a bit flush with the PCB, and I have metal midi connectors, so watch out for that as well.

Also, I haven't checked in a while, but when I got them, the manual was not yet translated to english.

I'd love to see a T-Res or similar in Euro format. Looking into modding he one I have. I think the WMD uHC is pretty similar to the M-Res in terms of feedback possibilities, although I haven't used it.

My only wish, and this is for all Jomox drum products is that the LFO would be assignable to more than just pitch.

JoMoX ModBase09 and JoMoX MBase11 = the same product only that the one is eurorack dedicated and the other is stand alone ?


ModBase09 is almost double price of the Mbase11 just because of the extra knobs or am I missing something ?

Yes, you are. There are long threads about these modules here. The modular versions are "completely redesigned" according to Jomox.

I've not used the either the Mbase or Mbrane, so perhaps circuit wise, they are totally redesigned.

The obvious differences are: 4 assignable CV inputs, linear FM input, gate input, plus knobs.

Same concept though and same midi implementation.

Pitch and metal noise! (for the eurorack module ;)

+ 2 metal noise combo and now 499 algo not 255 in each metal noise

and the future Jomox system bus .
