Ninstrument Combines Modules To Make 'Super' Eurorack Modules
Rounik Sethi on Sun, October 2nd | 1 comments
What do you get when you combine some of the best loved Eurorack synth modules together into one module? A super modules, of course. And Ninstrument are doing just that!

So you want some super Eurorack modules? No, I mean "SUPER" Eurorack modules... then you'll appreciate what Ninstrument is doing. Here's what we found out via MatrixSynth:

Continuing in the same thread of combining eurorack modules together, here are a couple more examples. First is the QCDG8. I took a 4MS QCD and expander and smashed a Circuit Abbey G8 right in between. I also added much needed bufferred mults to the outputs of the QCD and expander. This has a nice flow with all of the jacks down the middle of the panel.

Next is the UTILITA. Where do all of those clock outputs from the above QCDG8 go? This modules combines a Doepfer A-150, a Blue Lantern CMOS Party, 3 NE Sinclastic Empulatrix and a MI Branches. By combining them into one panel I can ‘normal’ some of the inputs making it much easier and quicker to patch.  I also solidify my workflow.  Remember ‘Familiarity’ breeds content.  The more you get used to something the more it will seem like second nature.

And last but not least is the COMPRESSWITCH. Here I take two Compressors from WMD and a Pittsburgh Switch and make them into one bad ass switchable compressor. This gets used in every patch I make.

As you gain experience with your modular synthesizer, you will start to see you will regularly patch your modules the same way most of the time. Once you establish the workflow you use most often, it makes sense to combine modules together into ‘SUPER’ modules if you will. You will obviously have your own ideas what you would make into a SUPER module, but that is the point. You are starting to think of your modular as your custom  instrument and less like test equipment.  Don’t be afraid of learning about what is behind the panel.  It can be just as much fun as what is in front of the panel!

    Er, isn't the saying "Familiarity breeds contempt" which isn't what you want from your modules :) See also: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q="familiarity+breeds"
