Monde Synthesizer Voltz & Hertz Eurorack Modules at Knobcon

via iomutech

Note this is from the same Monde Synthesizer that brought us the MS5 Pannerama back in 2011.

From their website, their eurorack line-up currently consists of the following:

"The Z Series

These products establish the foundation for a complete synthesizer voice with special emphasis on integrating external devices such as guitars, foot pedals, microphones.

Inz Musical instrument interface

Unique features: provides input level control for wide range of inputs without range switching. One jack provides input for either balanced and unbalanced instruments and microphones. Bonus feature: an accessible voltage inverter.

Musical Benefits: allows you to integrate external sound sources. Used to control eurorack synthesizer modules from external instruments. Positive and negative CV can be used for filter and amplitude contours. The gate output can be used to control envelop generator modules. Single jack minimizes panel width.


Pedz Expression pedal interface

Unique features: simultaneous bi and unipolar outputs; auxiliary VCA which can be controlled by foot pedal input or by other modules.

Musical Benefits: connect an expression pedal to operate like an organ swell pedal, guitar wha-wha pedal, or stereo panning pedal in conjunction with other modules.


Stompz Effects pedal interface

Unique features: allows you to integrate guitar stomp boxes with your modular synthesizer. Provides active multiples and a voltage inverter as auxiliary features.

Musical benefits: allows you to integrate a wide variety of effects pedals into your modular synthesizer. An example would be processing a VCO through an external chorus pedal.


Voltz Control voltage processor with digital volt meter

Unique features: up to four fixed voltage outputs; up to 4 attenuated/inverted outputs; as well as a summed output and an "or"-ed voltage output. Complemented with an integrated digital voltage display.

Musical benefits: allows precise tuning of control voltages and aids in patch recall.


Hertz Audio Mixer with frequency counter

Unique features: two summed outputs for an ideal front end to one or more filters - either in parallel or series.
Complemented with an integrated frequency counter displaying either numeric frequency or musical notes.

Musical benefits: aids in precise tuning of LFOs and VCOs, aids in patch recall, and when used in conjunction with the Inz allows tuning of external instruments.


Panz System output module comprised of four VCAs

Unique features: one VCA used for the master amplitude contour, another VCA is for modulation within the master contour or hold function, and the other two VCAs provide manual or voltage control panning. With carefully thought-out normalization and easy-to-use control voltage processing it also provides system-level outputs to other modules as well as a line-level stereo output pair.

Musical benefits: convenient integration of common output stage functions. Provides Loudness contour, tremolo, and stereo panning.


Ribbonz Ribbon controller with LFO and portamento

Unique features: triggered LFO with variable delay with two output waveforms. Also provides portamento with switchable destinations. Includes eurorack breakout panel and two meter interconnect cable.

Musical benefits: controlling musical pitch, triggering filter and loudness contours. With pressure output suitable for controlling vibrato. Built in LFO can be used for vibrato, wha-wha, and tremolo."

Moog Going Eurorack with Mother32 - All In One Synth Voice Module & Modular Cases

No pics yet, but I have word from a trusted source that Moog is working on a eurorack module possibly based on the Werkstatt. On the front are buttons that appear to be a 1 octave keyboard like on the Werkstatt. It looks to be 40hp, black, with a deep case 5" or so. The price was listed at $599. They also said Moog will making their own cases but possibly w/o power supplies built in? Also, there is a Pittsburgh 10.1 style case where the module will be to the left with another 40hp or so empty to the right. The case has wood ends with the Moog 'note' logo burned into them.

And confirmation via @synthtopia: "#Mother32 is an all-in-one #eurorack synth voice with 32 audio & cv jacks & built-in step sequencer, priced at $599."

If anyone finds any pics, send them in! The email icon is on the bottom right section of the site.

Some additional info:

"All-in-one Moog synth voice in Eurorack format
Can be used as a standalone desktop synth module or as part of a Euro system
MIDI & CV control
32 patch points
Built-in step sequencer, with per-note control over a large number of parameters, including gate length and ratcheting
The Moog Mother32 is expected to be available in early October, priced at US $599."

Experiment- Elements Sept 2015

Published on Sep 12, 2015 macbethsynthesizers

"A facebook friend suggested that it might be a good idea to record what I've had playing automatically in the background while I work on Elements synths that are going out. Now I actually play them on this video- not so automatic! For those following this -so far 16 units released, by the end of this week- 40- consult Analogue Haven or Schneidersladen. This recording done direct to my Canon 600D is not bad....could be better....just a quick demo!"

The Arcane Pillar

The Arcane Pillar from Giorgio Sancristoforo on Vimeo.

"The Arcane Pillar is an hermetic musical instrument based on Neural Networks and Western Esotericism.

To make it work, one must answer a number of enigmas, collect sounds of fire, water, air and earth, and finally balance them with different processes designed at each grade.
No user manual is given, but the γνῶσις that unlock the enigmas, is quite well documented on books and in the web if one knows how and what to seek...
Cheating is futile, for only understanding the enigmas presented, their meaning and consequences, it is possible to put in practice the knowledge and set in motion the inner logic of the instrument...

Currently in Alpha state."

Note this is slated as a software release, not mobile/iOS/Android.

New Bastl Expander Modules Announced at #knobcon

If you are at Knobcon this weekend, be sure to check them out. Bastl Instruments is in the house.

"Slim Fit line of 5 new eurorack expanders / modules by Bastl Instruments

We are happy to announce 4 new slim expanders and 1 module to enrich the line of our eurorack modules. The expanders enhance functionality of existing modules and and new fascinating features.

SPA - the grandPa expander adds CV input for nearly all parameters of your grandPa granular sampler module.

CV Trinity Expander pairs with CV Trinity - the 6 channel modulation source and adds independent RESET / RETRIGGER inputs for each channel.

Knit Rider Expander pairs with Knit Rider trigger sequencer and adds clock output and reset jack. The reset acts as input or output depending whether the sequencer is master or slave. There is also a 3 way passive multiple and a clock inverter as part of the module.

Solenoid Expander pairs with Solenoid 4 channel motor driving module and adds independent CV input for each channel to set the output pulse width which results into the way how hard the solenoid can hit the object - thus velocity control.

Wackel Kontakt - this unique 1HP module emulates broken contact or cable in form of a 4 way passive multiple! You can calibrate it to obtain the right level of broken-ness. It is not only a random type of generator to break your patches, it is also very useful as a CABLE HANGER or as 1HP blank panel. And most of all… it is the ONE module you would love to talk about with your friends!

Modules are available now from and soon from other retailers. Prices exclude tax.

SPA - 5HP grandPa CV input expander - 82 EUR

Sequential Circuits Pro One Analog Synthesizer J-Wire SN 0847

via this auction

"Great cosmetic condition (see photos) and perfectly functional. Fastest attack of any vintage synth in my home studio, amazing depth and clarity… I simply have too many mono synths.

Made famous by Vince Clarke on his Yaz album ‘Upstairs At Eric’s’! Outstanding when used with a Kenton Pro Solo Midi to CV/gate converter - I used Pro-Tools to sequence, using ‘filter cv in’ on the back of the Pro-One to have variable control of the noise filter. Lovely!

Please note - this synthesizer features the desirable J-Wire keyboard, however the keyboard itself is ‘sticky’. All keys work but the key action isn’t great and could use a tune up. I can have a local tech here fix it before shipping if you'd like (I would bill you the exact cost of the maintenance bill, likely $100-$200). For me it wasn’t an issue because I triggered everything via CV/gate which works perfectly."
