HAINBACH Recreates His Test Equipment Setup in a Eurorack Modular Synthesizer

Published on Feb 17, 2020 HAINBACH

"In which I solve my Eurorack crisis by using test equipment techniques to build a better modular synthesizer.

Me and my eurorack had our problems in the past year: I had built a system based around wavetables and powerful sequencing, but every time I sat down with it I made what I can only describe as stupid music: chatty happy pseudo-housy bouncy stuff that i could maybe use as a bed for a video, but nothing I really enjoyed. I had fun making it, but I did not like the results. All the sequencing power and tonal variation was too much, but also too little for the size of the system to make truly good tunes.

So I had a revelation: what if I build a system based on my favourite instrument now, my wall of test equipment. [check it out here]

So this is the system I put together from everything I had in my racks. Some modules were so long in there I had to drill the screws. It is a mini version of my test wall, and I feel super-inspired again to play with the eurorack. Translating what I have learned in the past year to the modular makes this feel like a very powerful yet small instrument, and I am back to making music with it that I actually enjoy.

get sounds, music and support what I do:"
