The Timo Rozendal / YuSynth Steiner-Parker filter sounds amazing and the amplifier per input, along with being 8hp, puts it miles ahead of the competitors IMO.

I don't see the Shakmat Time Wizard in enough racks. That thing is incredibly funky.

I wouldn't say it's unpopular, but Mutable Instruments' Frames gets pretty overshadowed by the rest of their lineup and it is one of the most useful and inspiring modules I've ever touched. It really stokes my imagination and I keep finding new uses for it.

Doepfer a-189-1 bit crusher. Sub-£100 bit crusher which can get a range of weird sounds out of audio signals, from aggressive distortion to ring mod type sounds to white noise-y mess. Small and cheap and I'm amazed it isn't more popular.
The a-189-1 is such a great module! In addition to audio it’s also great at mangling cv sources.

I’ll add the Ian Fritz Dual AD/AR. It’s a 4hp analog dual envelope with channel normalization that’s switchable between attack/decay and attack/release. Simple, but I like the shapes I get out of it and it was around $60.

Lots of NLC love already but I’ll add the 329 Phase/Flange which sounds amazing and is hard to find info about.

i've been meaning to try this but never got round to it - thanks for reminding me! especially since i recently got an oscilloscope so i'll be able to see what the 189-1 does to cv signals. also it's a module which, while great, i find that i don't want to overuse on audio, so it would be good to be able to put it to use in other ways.

Jag (!!!)
E350 used as an lfo.
How do you use the Jag. It would be great, if you share some ideas...
Nothing special really, often I just put the e350 into it.
Xy out in x on the jag and z out into y out. And than just search for nice wavetables. Voila, and you have Modulation voltages for your whole system..:-)

Olegtron Confusor 2. 4 inputs and outputs with switches and gate inputs to switch the routing of which input goes to which output. Great way to add variation to a patch.

Tesseract Modular Step Fader sequencer. Only been using it for a couple of days though, but has a lot of well thought out features. The sliders on the sequencers have a lot of range for tweaking since it also has a master attenuator per channel. Gate input for switching play modes, a ton of outputs and 2 gate rows per channel etc. Also looks great :mrgreen:

My entries would be the Happy Nerding PanMix, and the Rossum Evolution filter.

The PanMix is just a super useful module that is built like a tank with the most awesome combo knobs within eurorack.

The Evolution is just a really good filter that is lush and full. I love filters, and this is by far my favorite.

X1L3 modules. Sounds like plumes of acrid filth spewing from a radioactive sewer vent. Going to make several videos about these, and they will be featured on my next album.

I get a lot of use out of o_C and Temp Utile. The secret is to save the settings in your current app after each use!

I love these two modules but the menu diving and all of the options make it hard to get back to your previous state. This is particularly good for things that take a while to setup like Sequins.

The secret, save your settings! o_C saves settings with each app, Long Press the right encoder get to the app screen, then long press the right encoder again. You should see an expanding quadrilateral that signals the settings have been saved. Settings are only saved for the currently active app. I find that if I save what I’m working on after each session my life is easier.

Temps Utile has 4 presets you can save. Long press the right encoder from the options screen, this should display settings. Use the left encoder to choose save, then use the right encoder to choose a preset to save to and long press the right encoder to save.
non secreter, I use 2 o_C's + 1 temps. With all of the various sequences and modulation settings, there is plenty of storage for different ideas. Multiple songs, parts, and rhythms can all be recalled simply by selecting different apps. It seems to greatly reward an unhealthy obsession with parameter tweaking, from which I suffer. A written list of app combinations + temps save slots serves as my only reference for as long as I can keep the patch intact.

Not really. I just like sending semi-random cv into it (I like sending it looping envelopes from an omnimod) and using the gates it spit out to clock various things, trigger other envelopes and stuff like that. It can really clock an entire patch in a really wonky way if you let it. Pretty experimental, of course, but can sound pretty nice if you find a decent balance. :)

Klavis Caltrans!! - This module is so insanely useful and awesome!! I've been tuning everything by ear and it's been a faff to say the least.. also tracking was out on two of my three oscillators so I was constantly having to rebalance pitches. This little module automatically gets everything perfectly lined up and tracks them nice and evenly, and then becomes a really neat and easy octave and semitone shifter for each separate channel. It's ace!

VCAs are really as good as people go on about them. If you can, get another one

My primary voice doesn't seem to get much posted about, so I'll chuck it in the mix: SE Tonestar 2600. This thing is a versatile beast of sound, doing everything I ask of it. Smooth liquid Rolandish leads to the heaviest of basses, PWM, with both filter gain and VCA feedback available to add any amount of filth and girth- or to thin out if needed. I'm still finding new sounds from it, and although it is a completely normalled voice there are enough patch points to allow external modulators in to play. I'm not letting this one out of my case.

The tone of the thing is awesome too! Cant get a bad sound out of it... SE dont seem to get enough props for just how good they are at tuning things to be beautiful and musical, sort of like the old roland gear in a away

Old Harvestman Malgorithm in small doses with attenuated modulation or used on modulators. Let Sloths run into it.

Put CV's into FM Aid mix the outs with Pittsburgh Bender (modulated just enough to not lock up) into a Matrix Mixer. Sometimes mind blowing... sometimes mush.

Doepfer A-196 PLL - never know what I will get.

This is true: I haven't yet found anything which doesn't sound good, no matter how I tweak. No unexpected harshness ( cranking the gain/+feedback can make it shout, but only when I want it to ), no tonal gaps. Just good sound everywhere.

Not sure why the Rossum Panharmonium isn't more popular. This thing is absolutely amazing. There aren't any videos on YouTube I have found that do justice for this unit.



Creating pads from single melodies with this is amazing. You can have it sample every 16th note then transpose the with a quantized random voltage to create beautiful tones.
