myVolts Candycord Halo Cables

myVolts wrote in to let us know about their upcoming Candycord Halo Cables. The following is what they had to say about them:

"They're a range of coloured modular patch cables with discrete led lighting elements within their connectors, lighting up when Control Voltages (CV) passes through them. They work beautifully in modular, semi-modular and CV controller keyboard scenarios.

For the Halo range, we've partnered with a top musician and video producer. we'll be revealing who next week. He was deeply involved with the design process of these cables so we're confident they will satisfy the needs of even the most discerning modular / tabletop / desktop / electronic musicians. We've a page people can sign up to get notified when the campaign goes live, and get a free gift:"

Additional details:

"What is Candycord Halo?
Last year we brought you Candycords, a beautifully designed, hard-wearing set of audio cables. This year, we are extending that to modular patch cables.

Why Halo?

We've decided to bring flashing lights to your beautiful music. Halo modular patch cables have discrete led lighting elements within their connectors, lighting up when Control Voltages passes through them.

Just one colour?

The cables will come in a range of colours and a range of lenghts. Their will have bi-colour LED pairs, so depending on polarity of voltage passing through them, they will change between LED colours, e.g. Blue to Red.

Will they be pretty?

They will be extremely pretty. But mostly useful, lighting the way for active ports, pulsing to the frequency of the CV signal, showing clearly patch pairs and paths on your system.

Is that all?

No. There will be lots, lots more. We've spent the last year working with a very special partner to ensure that we shake some trees in the modular world, solving some of the problems we see as getting in the way of your creative expression. We hope you'll join us on this journey, over the two weeks of the campaign, where we take things further, yielding new possible improvements as the campaign progresses. We need your support and feedback.

Are these cables just for modular?

Please no! We hope to show you that CV is everywhere in musical universe and demonstrate some useful and inventive ways to use it. If you can see it, it's a lot easier to make use of it!"

  1. I would want cables that show signal moving from one end to the other.
