Editor’s note: speaking of Eurorack modules, the choice can be overwhelming (and obviously, it’s hard to keep track of every single module!). This list is by no means comprehensive but is, rather, a small selection of modules we can personally vouch for.
Qu-Bit Electronix came up with very interesting modules in 2017. We could have picked the esoteric Pulsar, but we opted for the more instant gratification experience provided by Chance, their random voltage generator. After all, it doesn’t often happen to see a module inspired by John Cage’s use of the Chinese divination text, I Ching!
True to the company’s philosophy (unique products, high-quality materials, great design and ease of use), the 321 includes very useful functions most users need in every patch, to edit and combine dynamically the signals in use.
Compact, affordable and extremely fun to use, SEEK is an SH-101 inspired monophonic step sequencer that can find its place in every Eurorack system. It’s also compact and affordable. What’s not to like?
Alright, this one came out in 2016 but we only had a chance to test it some months ago. Highly recommended to wavetable synthesis fans, it’s a fat sounding module that features 16+ banks of selected waves: classical synths, FM synths, Erica modular, vowels and more. Also, make sure to check out the extra ROM banks!
Disting Mk4 is an essential piece to add to your Eurorack. Mk4 brings some welcome improvements, such as a more readable dot matrix menu and extra features. Disting is now a 69-in-1 multifunction module. Hard to find something it doesn’t do!
