tangible waves rules

Serious love for my AE Modular. Just received yesserday a bunch of VCAs, the new wavefolder module, and the 4IO module for to cross talk em with the 0-Coast and my small Benjolin box. All these fit very nicely with effects into a case that I got at the hardware outlet (harbor freight). With impending snowstorm coming, will be spending some quality time together.

Robert Tangible Waves is a really super nice guy, I dig his enthusiasm for synthesizing and modular systems. :nana:

The AE Modular has a great sound; the Wasp filter is best for bass and the Nyle filter is great for everything else - I have to order the new state variable filter....
I have 2 sorts of oscillator and I definitely prefer the single rather than dual oscillator module, but mostly because of more flexibility/ connections, not because of the sound. The 2 following are just AE Modular, although 5a does have a little spring reverb on it. The FX on 5 are within the AE system...

This is going to be my next thing. I only have semi-mod at this point and haven’t jumped into Eurorack. The forum is very friendly and have assured me all my gear will be able to eventually integrate. Plus, he is working on a module that will hold hands with the Korg Volca Modular (as I was told on the forum).

you mean about the volca modular? that was only an idea, when the volca was initially released and there was a lot of buzz about it - everybody was going to buy one ;)
but I think thats all calmed down a bit now, so not sure it will still happen.

this was the chat about it

It occurred to me that I own my AE Modular for a year now, so I filmed this VLOG about my experiences:

I love my AEM. Not going to spend a penny on any other synths until I have built a AE multi-rack monster.
The new Silicone gold plated cables are a massive improvement as are the metal plated module patch inputs. Both on all new orders I think.

If you want to learn synth DIY, which is super easy with the AE Modular format, then check out the new “Let’s DIY” sub forum in the AEM boards. I just posted three threads for absolute beginners there, explaining DIY basics and providing quick links to online stores where you can get tools and components:

I released an all AE Modular ambient drone music piece on Bandcamp. No external sounds or effects, apart from very gentle mastering. Check it out :yay:

I got my rack in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I love it ! It's really a lot of fun and it really seems like Robert Langer has worked a lot on his system since the kickstarter : my rack includes all the new module versions, and the new silicone patch cables. It is totally usable, I have no issue with it. It doesn't feel cheap at all, and it really is a lot of fun to patch !

I made a quick track with it, 100% AE Modular, one take, no post-processing :

Here’s a first jam session with my upgraded setup. Got two larger cases now and fresh modules, like the SOLINA String Ensemble and ALGODRONE Bytebeat generator :goo:

Nice demos.

I've been thinking of selling off my AE modular as I seldom use it. Maybe buying those new cables will get back into it?

Sure, the patching experience has definitely improved quite a bit. It‘s still the same kind of format though, so depending on your reasons for neglecting it, it might not change with the cables. Either way, in case you want to sell it, post it on the AE Modular forum‘s as well. There‘s a “Trade/Sell” subforum as well :)
