Endorphines Shuttle System &Why you need a modular desktop synthesizer

video upload by Synthesizer New Zealand

"Welcome to Shuttle System, a unique performance instrument containing 5 @Endorphines #Eurorack modules under single 84hp faceplate.

This video consist of an intro, explanation about the #synthesizer modules within Shuttle system and some performances on the system. To help you navigate through the madness here are some timestamps:

00:00 Introduction
00:48 Shuttle System explained
01:31 Shuttle Control
02:27 Furthrrrr Generator
03:13 Gateway XP
03:42 Grand Terminal
05:14 Cockpit 2
06:04 Connections & controls
07:02 Performance 1
09:28 Performance 2

The composition used in the last song is part of Vōlc's (@volc5406) song the matrix which was performed and debuted on Saturday the 29th of October 2022 during Modfest 2 (Modular Festival Auckland) in Red Bar, #Auckland

The performance modular synthesizer is the result of 5 years of intense development — module after module was put together neatly by the team at Endorphines to finally create an instrument in a class of it’s own—a set of well selected devices for musicians to imagine music and bring it to life in the most pleasant way.

With the Shuttle System you obtain 5 modules in a 84hp @FrapTools PLUS case with handmade signature silkscreen printing, a PSU, a set of cables and a carrying bag. The whole Shuttle System is around 43-44 cm long which is the approximate size allowed in almost every airliner to ensure safe traveling with your instrument.

The portable power adapters ensure the use of instrument in any part of the world — no matter what the voltages is coming from the power receptacle.

The Shuttle's front panel is secured in the case with @Befacosynth Knurlies for ultra-fast access to the backside of the modules for trimming their parameters, setting jumpers (stereo/mono channels) on Cockpit 2 or installing the rich-in-timbres Strong-Zero VCO core onto Furthrrrr Generator.

The following modules are included in Shuttle System:

Shuttle Control - 16 channel USB to MIDI to CV interface with almost infinite possibilities interpreting MIDI events into analogue control voltages—including CV/Gate, random or noise generators, MIDI or tap-clocks, utility LFOs and envelopes. (Find out more here:

Furthrrrrr Generator - dual triangle-core VCO with a waveshaper (Find out more here:

Grand Terminal - dual voltage controlled gate with 8 resonant filter modes (ladder, diode, lpg, state variable, comb), dual envelope generators (voltage controlled) with looping/AD/ASR with arbitrary voltage to control slope shapes: from EXP to LIN to LOG without stretching the length of a certain slope, Cabin Pressure audio FX processor with 8 selected effects
(Find out more here:

Cockpit 2 - 4 stereo channel mixer with sidechain ducking (Find out more here:

Gateway - dual 1+1 utility mixer and auto-tuners to scale, offset and invert voltages"
