An opening of Wormclops World the art of Carol Sandin Cooley
A Night of Art and Music

Here's a short description from Carol about her artwork for this show:

I have always been driven to create. I have drawn, painted and played music since I was a child, starting to play in bands at age 15. I started getting serious about visual art when I studied photography at the Glassel School in 2003. I have been drawing a world that existed in my mind for years; this world is inhabited by wormclops and sandhands. During Hurricane Harvey I did my first painting that started this collection. It was a bit different then the way they look now. The wormclops are trying to navigate their world and get safely home and not get caught in a spoiler cloud. They are sweet little generous worms just trying to get by while the sandhands spin through the air. The spoiler clouds are always creeping up behind trying to rain on their day but they stay one link ahead. I love to create my own little worlds in both paint and ceramics. And I am really grateful to the Orange Show Foundation for letting me share these worlds with you by displaying my art in this special place.

Eventide Misha Sequencer Overview and Thoughts

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Nick from Patchwerks demonstrates the new Eventide Misha sequencer and shares his thoughts.

Learn more about the Eventride Misha here:

Misha is an innovative Eurorack instrument/sequencer that utilizes a unique, interval-based approach to playing and creating melodies. It’s designed to be played like a keyboard instrument and yet it makes music in a way unlike any instrument before it. In addition to playing it live, you can also record sequences that can be modified in a multitude of ways, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity.

video upload by MRG Synthesizers

"The previous videos in this channel have all been affected by some issue in digitalization that created some click/pop sounds. In this video I changed set up, so you get to have better audio quality in exchange to a mad webcam autofocus.

This is a very simple patch: a square wave with triangular LFO PWM is fed to the filter. Cutoff CV is controlled by an ADSR. The filter goes directly to out. No external effect used.

Modules used: MRG LFOs, MRG ADSR, MRG VCO, MRG FILTRONE, ALM HPO. Sequenced by Korg SQ1."

And a demo from MATTHS (hit the play button):

MRG #filtrone Jam #shorts video upload by MATTHS

via MRG

The MRG FILTRONE is a versatile voltage controlled low pass filter.

The resonance can be increased up to loud self-oscillation, and the module features 1V/O cutoff tracking.

Apart from the usual controls for manual and CV-controlled cutoff and resonance, offers two special features: SLOPE switch and TONE control.

1. SLOPE Switch

The big rocker switch under the cutoff allows the filter to change its slope from 18dB to 24dB.

2. TONE Control

This is a defining feature of the module, and an original one to the best of my knowledge.

In 24dB mode, the tone control blends the output of the second stage (12dB slope) and the output of the fourth stage (24dB slope).

In 18dB mode, the tone control blends the output of the first stage (6dB slope) with the output of the third stage (18dB slope).

Practically speaking, this allows to maintain the cutoff stable, but gently increasing harmonics.

The tone control, that allows to dynamically change the slope of the filter, together with the 1V/O tracked self-oscillation, makes this a filter apt to exploration and can produce many different (and sometimes unexpected) sounds, despite the overall simplicity of the module.

The filter, like all other MRG filters, are rich in low frequencies, and can be setup (with low cutoff, high resonance and short A/R in the CV cutoff) to generate powerful kick-like sound.

Hexinverter May Close Shop in 2023 Due to Global Supply Chain Issues

via Hexinverter

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share with you an important update about Hexinverter’s stock situation and future plans.


I think we can all agree that it’s been a weird couple of years on Earth for just about everyone. There has been a great reshuffling of many people’s lives, their professions – and the resources we rely on in our modern world to get things built. The manufacturing world has been very hard hit as a result. Small scale electronics, especially so. It has been incredibly difficult to keep up with demand for our modules, with products falling out of stock for months (and now years) at a time.

Unfortunately, the post-pandemic manufacturing climate was the final nail in the coffin for us at Hexinverter. Today we are announcing our intent to close down operations within the next year. I do not have an exact “end date” to share just yet, but I can tell you that it will probably be sometime in 2023.

We are now shipping out a number of modules that have been out of stock for ages, including the Mutant Brain! Be sure to hit up your local dealer or the direct shop if you’ve been waiting on some fresh Mutants for your rack, as these are the final runs of these products that will be built. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! We will begin the long process of closing up shop sometime in the new year once supplies are entirely diminished.

The past decade has been a wild ride for Hexinverter and everyone involved. It blows my mind when I look back at everything we’ve done! Our early days, with all of the DIY projects and later, going all in on riding the eurorack modular wave. Of course we can’t forget all of the cats and squeaky chickens.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a patron and believing in our vision! The people we’ve met and relationships we’ve made along the way have been the best part of this entire experience, and I can’t thank you enough for being part of our journey.

I’m not sure any of us back in the day saw the eurorack industry growing into what it is today, and I could not be more proud of the little, rubber-chicken-shaped corner we have managed to carve out in its history.

It’s been a tonne of fun, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have had the privilege of being a part of, and the opportunity to contribute to the world of modular synthesis.

So long and thanks for all the chickens!

Hexinverter Électronique


What does it mean for our products?

There will be no more Mindphaser complex oscillators produced.
Parts have been unobtanium for them since the first run was in progress. If you got one of the 250 units shipped from the first batch, consider yourself lucky!

We are receiving all of our other inventory in progress (which all components are already secured for) – the Mutant Brain, Hot Glue, Mutant Machine, BD9, Snare, Bassdrum, Galilean Moons, Red Dragon, Hihats, Claps and everything else – and will be actively shipping out to dealers and through our Direct Shop – until supplies are all sold out. If you’ve been holding off, now is the time, because we have very limited numbers of everything left (only double digits of every module).

Support efforts will continue on as long as it can, and we will announce a date of its eventual closure in the future, giving a lot of heads up before that happens.

The Mutant Brain Surgery configuration webpage will live on in one way or another, along with all the other supporting media (user manuals, etc.) for our products.

Drone Bath Ambient Event - Mosely Baths Birmingham

video upload by sonicstate

"From this weekend's BMO (Birmingham Modular Organization) Drone Bath - an experimental event held at the Mosely Baths in Birmingham, a disused Victorian bathing establishment. A great idea - each participant get their own cubicle which has an open door and open ceiling. Inside the cubicle you can make your contribution to the overall sound of the Drone Bath which will mix together inside the building, enhanced by some trippy lighting.

There are a set of cards distributed by organizer John Biddulph to be used or not, as suggestions as to what to do.

A great event, with Gaz Williams both performing, and filming this video - thanks Gaz!

Build a hybrid setup with PWM Malevolent. TUTORIAL + MODULAR PATCH IDEAS

video upload by SynthDad

"This is the first in a series of videos showing how to use the PWM Malevolent semi-modular synth with Eurorack modular to get the best of both worlds; the Malevolent's wild oscillators paired with more advanced filters and effects from Eurorack world.

For my first video I'm using the TB3PO applet in Ornament and Crime to sequence the two oscillators on the Malevolent to make that classic 303-style acid sound. I'll also show you how to use external filters and effects with the Malevolent, and add more modulation using your existing modules.

Disclaimer: PWM sent me this demo unit to make these videos but they do not have final say in the content nor am I getting paid for these videos. I make them for fun!

EURORACK VISIT #1 / Threetom Modular's workshop / MS-22 assembly

video upload by BRiES

"Join me in this documented visit to the workshop of Threetom Modular in a small town near Mechelen (Belgium).

Threetom Modular has gained worldwide recognition in the eurorack community with his feature packed STEVE'S MS-22. Tom tells us a little bit about how the filter came to be, who Steve is and how he managed to gain some support really quickly. He also shows us the complete assembly process of his MS-22 and tells us all about the (custom) tools he uses to build them.

A lot of sweat was produced while shooting the video, and I will be back to document the callibration and quality control in Threetom's audio laboratory soon, as well as having a chat about his new upcoming module.

I want to genuinely thank Tom for going along on a ride of which we both didn't exactly know where we would end up. I'm very satisfied with how the audio and video came out, and I'm even more pleased with the fun and insightful content we were able to create together."

"Clystre is the alias of German musician Carsten Rochow, a former indie rock multi-instrumentalist turned synthesist/sound designer. He is playing a complex system of Eurorack Modular Synthesizer and a Buchla Music Easel. Drawing from an admiration of both east and west coast styles, Clystre combines elements of Music Concrète, Minimalism, Krautrock, Berliner Schule, Synth-Pop, IDM, Drone, Noise, Ambient and others to craft his unique sound. This ambitious approach to synth/modular music could easily yield a cacophony, but with Clystre, the approach feels intuitive, thoughtful, playful and highly gratifying. The process of creating music, sculpting sound, and shaping progressions with modular systems is not only a journey, but a relationship between man and machine.

Clystre has released a song called Arpichelago on Youtube to promote his collection of recordings and compositions. Arpichelago is driven by an elaborate arpeggio created with a Buchla Music Easel.

YAMAHA VL1 Version 2 Virtual Acoustic Synthesizer New Display & FD SN JY01037

via this auction

"The first model of synthesizer to feature VA (virtual acoustic) tone generation based on physical modeling, a complete departure from sampling and FM.

A VA tone generator creates sounds by simulating the physical mechanism by which wind, string and other instruments produce sound.

The virtual instruments simulate characteristics such as the shape and materials of music instruments, allowing the creation of tonal changes that respond to the breathing and playing methods used.

The VL1 was created with reed instruments and other wind instruments in mind, and thus is two-note polyphonic."

"Crumar Multiman-S Synthesizer Sound Demo

Italian Synth/String Machine, also known as the Orchestrator.

No effects – audio taken directly from 'MAIN' output."

via this auction

"Fantastic sounding 1970s Italian string synthesizer, with bass, piano, clavichord, brass, cello & violin sounds. All sorts of possible combinations as well as an amazing brass filter and "string timbre" filter-like control for the strings make this a really unique sounding synth.

A few dings and scratches (pictured) on the body and top cover but the synth itself is in near fully-working condition. A couple of the keys don't work with certain sounds and the inner workings could do with a cleaning. The foot pedal is not included, which affects the functionality of the synth to an extent but it's still an incredible sounding machine (link to video demo of sounds below – I've tried to cover as many sounds as possible as well as show some of the limitations.)

All outputs are tested and working. Pedal board and swell pedal connectors are untested..."
