Well, it's actually...

a potato.

RTFM... :lol:

No, actually, it attenuates multiplied & mixed signals. I find it usable when multiplying CV before sending it to QMMG, who doesn't have CV input attenuators. So, QMMG goes well with potatos...

Also it can be used for audio signals, but the output is noticeable quieter. I might try out other vegetables. Or fruits. Maybe I can mix apples and oranges, finally. Yay!

I think that may be a must have module for mash-ups.

Great! 8_) but watch out for acidic fruits like oranges. You don't want to corrode your jacks.

This is what happens when you let Irish people have modulars.

I wonder which module would do the best job of cooking a hotdog? Remember those kitchern devices form the late 70's that cooked hotdogs by electrocuting them?

I brought one of these for $75 last week, but I'm unsure which way round the ribbon cable goes.

Also, now I have a potato, what vegetable should I get next?

So, is Make Noise filming an infomercial on the latest, greatest potato cooker?

Fans on the Eurorack forum claim that the QMMG will do everything but slice bread. ... I didn't believe them.

While using a pair of QMMG's to cook the potato were they using a Maths as the timer?

What do you think would best compliment this rack? I am looking for the perfect sine wave but waffle cut might work as well.
