Haha, they always make such cool stuff. :) I like the concept, even though it isn’t for me. I’d been all over it a few years ago.

They're euro compatible. It says euro conversion guide coming soon + individual modules on sale later in the year (only complete systems for now).

Don’t have the money or space for one right now, but these are really neat!

I wonder if they’ll eventually port some of their existing digital stuff into module form? Some of the OP-1 synths (or the Tape) would be cool with CV. Though you’d probably need some kind of display to get the most out of those...

I guess the mysterious expansion ports on the OP-Z have something to do with these already.

If I was starting my modular journey now, I'd be all over these. Cannot afford money, space or even time for these now but they do really look great.

Wonder if these will be around consistently in terms of availability, like the Pocket Operators. I assume they'll sell like hotcakes and be back ordered for a while.

Looks like there won't be faceplates, an opportunity for someone like Grayscale to make them.

The prices seem good and the 170 seems like a cool introduction to modular, but the modules are pretty minimal for 2019. I imagine they'd have to sell for about $50 each to make them worthwhile (remember: they still need a faceplate so that's $20-$30) as an alternative to stuff by more established Eurorack companies like Erica Synths or Doepfer.

Yeah, I would've loved these a few years ago but now, when I have 4 Doepfer P-9 cases and overflow into a P-6? Nah.

The jacks don't look like they're secured to the front panel, or am I crazy? Or is it a cap that screws in?

Definitely don't really need these but . . . that keyboard is so cute. But, $150 can get you a keystep. . . but . . . so cute!

Can you buy these now? I keep getting a message that the store is closed?

edit: These are going to make for some bonkers cuckoo videos...

I was able to add the keyboard/sequencer to my cart before good reason returned and I refrained from buying it. I mean... I just got the Rene 2 + I have a Pressure Points :bang:

Can’t wait to see these on modulargrid :)
Looking at the pdf, the individual modules look very uninspired, though... nothing unique at all in any way other than price and packaging...

Really blown away with these and the Volca modular.
Hope they're all as good as they look because :love:

Let the good times roll!

Looks so Synthi-esque.

Would love to hear some demos and find out what's inside

I love the design of these. Really beautiful. If someone was just starting out these look like a lot of fun.

HOWEVER:


"THE MODULES HAVE NO REVERSE POLARITY PROTECTION. MAKE SURE TO WIRE THINGS CORRECTLY TO AVOID DAMAGING THE UNIT AND VOID WARRANTY!
ALSO: DO NOT CONNECT HEADPHONES DIRECTLY TO ANY OUTPUTS! THIS MAY DAMAGE YOUR EQUIPMENT AND HEARING."

Probably wan't to buy one of these new rather than second hand...

Mind sharing the pdf, please? I can't find a description for the individual modules.

The systems look perfect for learning or teaching modular synthesis. The designs are simple, clear, and beautiful. For $500, the 14 module 400 system is reasonably priced.

I like the design a lot and the branding has a lot going for it. Not really for me though.

With the keyboard, why not just spend that bit extra and get a Beatstep Pro?
