New EMW Demo Cabinet - New Eurorack & 5U Modules in the Works

Check out this massive demo cabinet from EMW aka Electronic Music Works. Some of the modules have been updated and some are new. Details and videos will come in time. For now click on the image and take a peak. According to EMW, they will have completed a total of 128 eurorack modules by this December. Are there any other eurorack manufacturers with a line-up that large aside from Doepfer?

And for those of you that prefer the larger 5U format such as, Moon Modular, Mos-Lab, STG and of course Moog, EMW has some good news for you. They plan to introduce some of their best-selling modules in the larger format next year. I will post them as they are introduced.

New Q157 SH++ 5U Module

Q157 SH++ Tour Published on Nov 27, 2017 synthesizersdotcom

"For more information visit

Hosted by Roger Arrick of"

"The Q157 SH++ is a Sample and Hold surrounded by accessory functions on a single-wide panel. There are 5 sections including an LFO with square and sine wave outputs, a frequency/gate divider, noise source with low-pass filtering, and a slew limiter with automatic looping. The slew limiter section also produces a decay envelope generator.

Several sections are connected together in a musically-useful way to create interesting modulation of oscillators and filters with minimal patching.

The LFO provides square wave and sine wave outputs simultaneously with an LED indicating speed. The LFO can be used to provide vibrato to oscillators, clocks to sequencers, or gates for the Sample and Hold section.

The Divider section automatically receives its input from the LFO's square wave unless a plug is inserted into its IN jack. Dividing gates can be useful for sequencer patches, arpeggiations, even sub-octave waveform generation.

The Sample and Hold section receives its gate from the LFO unless a plug is inserted into its GATE jack. The sample and hold input is automatically connected to the noise section if there is no plug in the IN jack.

The Noise section provides a white noise filtered by a 2-pole low-pass filter. The knob can also be jumpered as a volume control if desired.

The Decay/Slew section provides portamento for keyboard pitch, slew for the sample and hold output, creates envelopes from gates, or delays gate signals. Without a plug inserted into the IN jack, the slew mode automatically retriggers to create a trapezodial LFO waveform. In decay mode, a gate produces a decaying envelope to drive percussive patches."

Deckards Dream w Linnstrument (Test 1)

"Just a very, very, VERY rough/quick riff with my new Deckard's Dream synth, using a Linnstrument as controller (in MPE mode) and processed with a touch of reverb from a Meris Mercury 7. DD is in Sustain 1 mode, with aftertouch triggering the LFO modulation and speed.

Still getting used to the Linnstrument, hence the roughness in some of the pitch bends. But, the basic idea is there."

Make Noise Morphagene Reels (in Six Parts)

Published on Nov 27, 2017 Genshi Media Group


I thought I'd show an example of the Reels I use in my Make Noise Morphagene module. Each one of the Six reels in this video I Composed and Sound Designed in Ableton Live using a variety of Instruments, VSTs, and Field Recordings. Normally, I would then load these up into my two Radio Music modules and feed those into the Morphagene, but this time, I loaded them directly onto the SD card of the Morphagene.

Though I use to work professionally as a Sound Designer (well technically, I still do... for myself!) I don't think I will sell these or give them away (unless I get a ton of requests) as they are very much tailored to my own "Cinematic Ambient Soundscape" style... I just wanted to show them here, in hopes that it will inspire others to explore deeper; to spend more time crafting what goes into your own Morphagene.

In the video, I play each reel through before I begin manipulating the various parameters (both manually, and with LFOs.) One note: none of these reels have Splice Markers. There is a lot you can still do without Splicing the reels, and I personally don't use the Splice feature all that often (just occasionally.)

Here is the timeline for each part:

REEL ONE - 0:08
REEL TWO - 2:19
REEL FOUR - 7:32
REEL FIVE - 9:51
REEL SIX - 12:26

Final note: there is a touch of Reverb from Mutable Instruments Clouds. #GenshiMorphageneReels"
