Yeah, you could also just sequence the Curves via its MIDI input or play the internal sequences. The Mäander is definitely nice as a standalone device though and certainly feature rich.

Any other module/synth that can be compared to it?

I'd like to check other options.

I'm loving what I'm hearing. Thanks for these demos flx!

Thank you! There are definitely a bunch of wavetable synths/VCOs, but the sequenceable filterbank seems quite unique. You can just get the filterbank alone as a module though. It’s called Flame Curves.

Alright, after a short YouTube break, I'm back with my promised Mäander workflow video. Starting with an initialized patch, I'm showing the step sequencer, bar chaining, MIDI looping and the arpeggiator to demonstrate a live-friendly way of working with the Mäander:

I just picked one up and the "Resolution" knob is bit crooked and can spin all the way around - I wiggled it some and now kinda locks in the OFF-32 range. But I'm guessing it should look/function like the other knobs?

Yes, something is wrong then. But maybe it’s just the plastic knob cap that is loose? You can tighten it with a small screw driver I think.

Thanks for confirming - alas it's not just the knob cap (I can definitely see how the pot is mounted at a different angle when opening up the case), but I'll give that a shot before contacting the Flame service... Hopefully I don't need to ship it all the way back (sounds great in the first 30 min of playing with it), but it is new :/ - everything else seems very solid.

Another thank you for these videos. A great clarifying accompaniment to the manual.
