The new X1L3 Underwurlde is glitchy as hell, there's gate inputs and manual buttons to screw with the memory for the delay.

I like the 2hp Freez and the Freeze function on the Qu-Bit Prism. I imagine you could also use the Hold function on the Mimeophon.

Not that you asked about pedals but, lately I've been trying a Malekko Charlie Foxtrot into a TKOG Mini Glitch. Definitely crazy in a good way.

+1 here for Prism. It does a great job at processing drums and percussive sounds. Also find my self using it solely as a stereo filter quite often.

Aside from the decimator, it does share similarities with the mimeophon, that might be a more interesting option, depending on what you’re after.

i went with monsoon + Kammerl instead of the way more expensive Morphagene.. pretty sure it's even better than morphagene at this particular task.

mn echophon has wonderful warbles when you adjust the delay time or send it an unsteady clock; delightful to send into the 2hp freze

I have Monsoon with Parasite firmware, but Kammerl is interesting.

Do you know if the Looping Delay mode on it is copied/borrowed from Parasite, or is it unique? Looping delay is the mode I use my Monsoon in most, but it would be great to have that plus the Kammerl modes.

I'm also considering picking up a Prism...

Adding E950 Circuit Bent VCO by Synthesis Technology. Lots of glitch possible with this module, especially in circuit bent mode.

Kammerl firmware has the original Looping Delay mode...which is a bummer and the reason I added a uClouds with Parasites to my factory Clouds with Kammerl firmware.

There are lots of good suggestions here, but I might add that developing the patching skill to create glitch sound using basic patching techniques with basic modules should be one of your goals.
Disappointment with any module is usually a failure of imagination.

Ummm, I guess you would call it techno.

agreed !
was about to say something similar.

agreed on the DLD !
microcell and supercell might have parasites looping delay + kammerl in one module ( not shure, i never use the looping delay)

+1 on the DLD. The fact it does not do the tape delay pitch wobble, helps getting glitch like stuff out of it.
Like the stuff after 0:52 if the video below:

The dld is great, one of my favorite modules in eurorack. But! For glitched out delays, sampling and granular, you really can’t beat the Reflex Liveloop!!!

It’s AMAZING for this task.

Interface is a little weird but worth it for the glitched out sounds you get out of it!
