Didn’t realise that was really a trend. If it is though, my guess is it will be the next trend, which I’ll probably miss too. :banana:
Where have I seen you before?
Same place you saw me, I expect.

Wonder how many pages this thread will be by the time they actually release a module....
maybe you’d like to buy some nice used modules? Free cables with purchase!!

There are trends and counter-trends. I'm waiting for a complete synth voice with VCO, VCF,VCA and modulation in 2 hp. On the other hand, the popular Intellijel Rainmaker is two football fields long.

Yeah, and those are Canadian football fields, which won't fit in a case designed for American or European football fields, but all three are in the same ModularGrid category...

This trend is related to those of us wanting compact systems for live use.

I'd definitely prefer having big, solid modules, but for travelling on a plane, space is everything.

I do have a few modules that takes up a good amount of space in my "tiny" 2x104 hp case. AJH Mini mod Filter is one of them. I could easily find a good filter at half the hp, but it just sounds so damn good and that big cutoff knob is very sexy (and useful :hihi: )

Luckily we have so many different manufacturers, that I think we are all covered.

ACL, AJH, Many of the Erica synths modules, Pittsburg and so on.

gotta worry about the effect a player like Behringer could have on the little oneor two person shops that have been the life blood of the Eurorack renaissance. That said, such worries wouldn't stop me from grabbing an inexpensive 2600 or Synthi clone with both hands as soon as it dropped.And if the filters on that UBXa sound reasonably close to the Oby, I'm sold! I'm bored with all my 80s CEM polysynths.

there is no casting or rolling plant for aluminum sheet that has a process designed for eurorack sized panels with prefinished edges coming straight off the production line. ALL aluminum sheet is rolled even if it is casted. ALL aluminum sheet has edges trimmed at the factory. it usually comes in 3ft or 4ft rolls. therefor all aluminum eurorack panels are punched, laser cut, die roll cut, milled, water jet, or wire electric discharge machine cut. there are literally no other possible ways of cutting aluminum sheet. they always come from sheet. never casted ever.

all eurorack panels are.

yes I agree. these are punched out it the cheapest way possible. it leaves marks in the panel. you can have cheap punched panels or you can have perfectly cut nice panels. pick one. what do you think behringer will do?

I just want Uli not to f7ck with mutable clones. If for some reason Uli decides to make "Blouds" and "Bings" at 99 each, go figure

Better stick with the 2600 and the cs80

Whimsical Raps would be a much more rewarding victim. Consider:

Bold Mac

Seems like if they're going to clone anything, cloning a module that is both open source and discontinued by its original manufacturer would do the least possible amount of harm to the industry.

I like the idea of bellysquasher... Too many beers, patch the module and you're back to normal.

Yeah i was hoping they would make some huge cases with power at some unheard of price. That could solve the space restraints for a lot of people. Could be a boost to the euro market.

That unpowered case has been around since April or so though.

As for modules, I'm not really scared. I don't think Behringer will break the Eurorack industry - Ladik has not broken it, in fact they have improved it.

Maybe the one thing more than any other that I would be worried about if Behringer made it would be a power supply that is driving everything else.
At least if a module fails, hopefully the rest of the rack survives, and you can pull the corpse out in a few minutes. Not so much if it's the power supply - it's the most important thing in the rack.

Wouldn't be the end of the world if a Barphagene or a Bampage were to fail.

So you work for Behringer, right?
Give us the deets on the upcoming modules.
