Re: Disapointing Modules

I'm constantly plugging outputs into outputs by accident. I know you're not supposed to but all the overpriced boutique crap I buy better have protections against it. Same - I mean, not ALL the time, but I have often accidentally plugged outputs together. Never fried a module that way yet. Failing ...

Re: best & "most unique" sounding standard modules?

Metasonix has about the most unique and distinctive sounding gear. Not for everyone; but if you're looking at noise/crunchy/distorted sound, it's a great starting point.

Seconded on that, although a finished module would be good too. And I'm not concerned about depth, since I'm not using shallow skiffs.

Re: Xaoc Devices Sarajewo: Syncable Analog Delay Line prototype

I know theyre quite different but do you think it would be preferable to have this or the Chronoblob 2? Depends what you want. Chronoblob is certainly going to have more functionality but I'd imagine sounds much more clean. The Sarajewo will be all analog with BBD chips, so will have more of a uniq...

I wonder how much of it is provoked/compounded by its infrequent production runs and elusive, boutique status even within a very boutique (mostly cottage) industry? Or is it something else?

Q

I'm new to the world of modular. I'm mid-course in building a small-ish Doepfer-focused Eurorack system. I'm pretty sure that what I really actually want is a Serge and in particular, I'm convinced that a 4U gives more functionality in a smaller form factor. What I'd like to build is this: https://...

Aside from the Stackcables, I'm rather fond of the Polar Noise braided cables. They are rather thicker than the average euro patch cable; but I like the feel and look of them.

Re: Which Modules are Best Friends?

Metasonix R-55 and Ladik U-202. Although I'd hesitate to call them best friends, since neither one are particularly friendly (the Metasonix in particular is pretty grouchy most of the time); more sort of highly effective co-workers.

If I had to start over again, I'd make myself wait a couple of years before buying anything, and save up quite a bit more, so I could put together a more cohesive rack with better options available.

I'm a big advocate for single-function or function-block modules. My preference would be for 2 Joranalogue Contour 1s, with separate logic modules (the Joranalogue Compare 2 jumps immediately to mind, but there are plenty of others), and VCA/Mixer modules (too many of these to count).
