"The sad news of Gert's passing put me out of sorts and I ended up looking through old pictures and decided to make a very short and quick remembrance video out of them. Rest in peace Gert, and condolences to all of his friends and family. Feel free to share comments and stories relating to Gert in the comments section below if you like.

The simple sequence is a Moon Modular 569 Quad Sequential Voltage Source running two identical voices each consisting of a MOTM-300 VCO, 1/4 of a MOTM-380 quad LFO, 1/2 of a Moon 517 VCF, 1/2 of a Oakley dual VCA and 1/5 of a Club Of The Knobs poly EG. Also used: Expressive-E Osmose keyboard, Mellotron M4000D Rack, Roland A-88 controller, Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals, Lexicon MX400 rack."

RIP Gert Jalass of Moon Modular

Some sad news sent my way via John L Rice who helped man the Moon Modular booth at NAMM every year. Gert Jalass, the man behind Moon Modular has passed away. I met Gert serveral times at NAMM and he was always a pleasure to talk to. He always welcomed me with a smile. He was genuinely passionate about synthesisers and the synth community. I haven't been able to make events lately and was looking forward to seeing him again. I'm so saddened that I won't be able to. I am sincerely going to miss him.

You can find posts featuring Gert here, and of course posts featuring Moon Modular here.

MOON MODULAR | System-X Modular Synth Demo | Interview w/ Gert Jalass

Published on Apr 20, 2019 synth4ever

"Demo of the Moon Modular System-X, a unique 5U analog modular synth + interview with Gert Jalass, Moon Modular's Head of Commercial Operations.

On a trip to Los Angeles I stopped by the Noisebug synth store in Pomona, CA for a tour. During my visit, Gert Jalass from Moon Modular ( happened to drop by the shop. Moon Modular is a boutique analog modular synth company started by the (late) Udo Hanten, Albin Meskes and Gert Jalass.

Gert was kind enough to do a brief interview and demo of the System-X analog modular synthesizer. The System-X is a one-of-a kind, all-in-one 5U modular analog synth created to commemorate Moon Modular's 10th anniversary.

This brief interview with Gert covers a bit about Moon Modular, some of their 5U modular synth modules, and features a deep-dive synth demo of the System-X and its sounds using oscillators, filters, sequencer, quantizer, noise, LFOs and more.

Ambient Waves Trailer 2

Ambient Waves Trailer 2 from Open Video Medien Labor on Vimeo.

You can find the first trailer here. Ambient Waves is an electronic music festival taking place in München (Munich), Germany May 23 - 25. As you can see via the list in the video, and the details below, the event will feature some well known modular manufacturers and musicians.

The following is the description for the video in German followed by a Googlish translation for the archives:

| Ambient Waves - Kosmische Musik in der Kirche |

KARTEN Vorbestellung:


“Ambient Waves“ ist ein modernes „Update“ der in den 70er Jahren in Deutschland entstandenen Musikrichtung "Kosmische Musik", die hauptsächlich mit elektronischen Musikinstrumenten (Synthesizer) gespielt wurde.
Vorbilder für diese Bezeichnung, die es in ähnlicher Form auch in anderen Ländern gab (Spacerock) dürften vor allem Science-Fiction-Filme gewesen sein.
Titel aus dem Bereich der Kunstmusik haben dazu beigetragen, die Musik von Klaus Schulze, Popol Vuh, Ash Ra Temple und vor allem Tangerine Dream mit Vokabular aus der Physik zu belegen.
( Quelle Rocklexikon )

Eines der Highlights des Festivals ist deshalb die Teilnahme von Thorsten Quaeschning ( Tangerine Dream ), der am 24.05. solo spielen wird.

Moon Modular 569LE Quad Lag Expander

Published on Jan 18, 2017 John L Rice

"A quick overview of the new M569LE expander module. (and after the over view some random noodling) I'm quite pleased and proud of this module since I was very involved with the initial design concept (feature set and panel layout) but Gert and his team at The Lunar Experience did all the "heavy lifting" with the actual circuit design and nice panel graphics etc. :-)

Additionally here's a little audio test peice of music I did using the 569 in 4x8 mode and all 4 channels of the 569LE engaged:"
