Norse mythology comes to life in these modular vertical farms!

Agriculture is the backbone of our society, it sustains and feeds us. But, it can be water-intensive and does demand a lot of substantial land area. 37% of Earth’s surface is used for farming, and this percentage is expected to steadily increase. And with the world’s population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050, there isn’t going to be much space to spare. In such a critical time, modern and clever solutions are needed to combat such an issue. And one such example is Framlab’s recently launch...

Exquisite paintings, with analog signal and modular gear as brush

Working with image signal instead of sound remains to many an undiscovered country. One artist is producing beautiful meditations on analog video – and charting his work. Christopher Konopka treats the Eurorack modular as a canvas, carefully producing slow-moving, richly organic work. He calls them “emotional abstractions” – and relates the experience of navigating new textures to that of our perception of time and memory. You can watch this, along with musings on what he’s doing an...

2hp have a lunchbox modular synth in a literal lunchbox

One thing Eurorack modular doesn’t normally make you say is, “awwwww… cute!” But here’s a modular synth rig that looks as likely to contain a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as a synth. Meet the 2hp Lunchbox, which is literally an oldschool lunchbox with handle. It’s 42hp – which isn’t itself a new idea, as the Erica Synths Pico System does the same. The new idea is putting that in an actual lunchbox, which is adorable – and practical, since it comes with a handle. In order for this...

Two portable speakers meet to create one 360-degree modular speaker!

Nowadays, speaker designs are getting innovative by the day! However, there’s a certain appeal to modular speakers that I simply cannot deny. One such example is Mindaugas Petrikas’ Hevi speaker. Crafted from a mixture of rough concrete and wood, Hevi is a 360-degree modular speaker, with a warm and rustic aesthetic. With a glossy plastic plate stuck right in the middle of it, a surreal modern contrast is created to the otherwise homely materials, that are wood and concrete.What makes Hevi eve...

Behringer unveil Eurorack Go case; what does it mean for the rest of modular?

Behringer’s anticipated moves into Eurorack are arriving – with a Eurorack case to get you started. There’s no price, but the product does look a lot like an existing competitor.

What are all the synths hiding in Mutable’s modules (and their free VCV ports?)

Mutable Instruments packed a lot of different sound models into a single module with Braids and “spiritual successor” Plaits. Learn what they do in these videos. Émilie’s work in modular is some of the most innovative of recent instrument designs. Braids and the later Plaits are so deep, in fact, that they can seem a bit like cheating – like the sound design work is already done for you in that engine. But that’s before you begin to appreciate the simplicity of the interface, on one hand, and...
