Going Deeper in Modular with the Waldorf KB37

Published on Nov 18, 2018 ProckGnosis

"Just some playing around, discussing, and reflecting on what I'm liking about modular synths in general and in the context of the Waldorf KB37.

What I love?
- Lets you get massively creative
- Lets you do things you can't do so easily with a self-contained, stand-alone synth
- It's all hands-on! No menu diving!
- Helps you really think about and learn how patches are constructed

Slight negatives
- It's sometimes not as immediately satisfying as a self-contained, stand-alone synth (due to "setting things up" just to get sound)
- The cables of all the modules can get in the way of uninhibited knob twisting, slider sliding, and switch flipping
- Not so easy to get back to that amazing patch you created last week

Side note: the intro tune was recorded with only the KB37 and the modules seen in the video, plus some Reason Kong drums."
