I thought you had cooked up a post-Soviet version of ERD/WORM :tu:

Well I took the plunge and ordered a bunch of modules from Paratek, here is my experience:

Was looking for ONE small module with LED's to display tempo, (or that a module was actually working before I unmuted it.)
A very simple need, useful to me when playing live.
So I went online to search and found Paratek.


Initially I went to Reverb and got to know the guy behind Paratek while messaging him about LED color options, he pointed me to his ModularGrid and Paratek website and I was blown away by the aesthetics, the attention to detail and his willingness to customize the modules to my tastes.

We got to talking about other things too and instantly I felt he was a cool dude, working hard to make something artistic and different.

I took a chance and sent him 500$USD and told him to go crazy.

He sure did.

About 2 weeks later I get this box from Russia and this is where it gets really cool:

Open it and the first thing I notice is he sent me a tasty gift, the local favorite treat from Tula: Gingerbread!

Then I noticed the packaging of the boxes included,

The attention to detail, the whole Cyberpunk vibe going was truly awesome, I got a few more than what I was expecting and they look amazing in my rack, and are not useless, they serve a purpose I actually LOVE them.

I know space is always an issue but I remember going into modular because it was something FUN that brought me JOY and these modules do exactly that.

Now Covid-19 came along and gave me a break from http://modularmondays.com/ in Montreal where I usually go there to bang out weird sounds and see what new stuff has happened in the modular scene, I can't wait to bring these along and use them in a live setting.

I'm building a second case now, mostly for drums and it's only a matter of time before I order more from my new friend at Paratek. I higlhy recommend him as we should be encouraging small builders and artists. This is what it's all about right? Enjoy Modular and stay safe!

FULL DISCLOSURE: Nobody asked me for this review and nobody offered me anything to write here, this is my very first post on MW and hopefully people will be kind.

Сompatriots! I am proud to present to your attention our newest product - 6-channel bidirectional signal router ЧАТЕЛЬ-6!



• Adjustable number of channels from 1 to 6 + tremolo mode.
• Two-way operation, high switching speed limit.
• 6 algorithms for channels changing via trigger/gate, including random.
• Manual and CV* control also available.
• Unit save the last settings when powering off.
• And of course, the lovely tube indication of the active channel :)
• 6 hp skiff friendly (40mm deep)

Unit cost: 150$

*There may be rare minor layering of adjacent channels, this is a technical drawback of the Arduino ADC, we`ll try to completely eliminate it programmatically in future firmware, but for now this bug can occur at very slow and some borderline voltage values.

Those videos were surprisingly entertaining.
Totally agreed! Not sure if I’ll find a home for one of those modules yet, but really enjoyed the videos.

A little update you were asking for! now you can update youR TAKTOMER to get CV(gate) “reset”. It’s very simple if you have a solder iron or just a friend with it :) you just need to cut connection of right jack on the front panel and solder 4 parts as On a picture below, but please remember that units has a hi currency and don’t do any movements without fully powering off! If you’ll have any troubles, just send me a pm or email to djoxyjam@mail.ru

As a Nixie-Clock owner I absolutely need such a module. The only thing that keeps me from buying one right now is the German (Zoll), its customs + their additional costs. But one day :tu:
