Rare Waves Hydronium bass line synth

Post by estin » Wed Feb 13, 2019 4:41 pm

Anyone had a chance to play with one of these yet? Looks like fun and sounds quite nice. I love the idea of a built in effects loop and its post VCF pre VCA. Could easily run a stupid high gain distortion in the loop and the VCA will gate all the noise. :hyper:

Still have the option of black in either format but i'd likely go yellow myself, it will match the geiger counter pedal that will live in the fx loop.

My favorites are the yellow eurorack or the blue standalone. It sounds really good based on that demo.

ahh I now see you meant it will be hard to choose which color, I misunderstood that one completely. Combine that with originally posting this in b/s/t forum its just been an off day for me. :hihi:

Yep, sounds really good really nice filter and CV connectivity. Not sure I need another monosynth but it looks like a fun build I might have to get one at some point.

I had no idea these were out. Eric was teasing them last year, but I completely forgot about his new little acid synth. Sounds freaking amazing, though he didn't go with the acid green color many of us were hoping for in the poll. ;)

Wish it was available in white to match the RA-9, might grab a blue though, I think they'd make an interesting pair.

It's a quality little box. I bought the yellow desktop kit version and was thoroughly happy with it. The instructions for the DIY kit were very well laid out

My eurorack kit arrived the other day. Been trying to find my soldering fan so I can assemble it. The instructions are nice, and the packaging is really well thought-out too.
