Eurorack 101 from Intellijel

The world of Eurorack Modular Synthesizers can be very complex and I guess a bit intimidating for even a seasoned electronic musician. It really is a jungle out there, with thousands of different modules made by hundreds of companies all over the world.

What does every module do, what do I need to get started and how do I connect everything to make sounds? Valid questions indeed. I found this excellent page from the Canadian company Intellijel that explains everything you need to know.

Lots of useful information, even for someone like me that have been into this thing for a few years now.

Eurorack 101: What is a Eurorack Modular Synthesizer

I’m building the BASTL Cinnamon State Variable Filter

This lazy Sunday I’m building the DIY kit version of the BASTL Voltage Controlled State Variable Filter for Eurorack.

It’s one of the missing pieces in my Eurorack system since I don’t have any good stand-alone filter. Actually I bought it about a month ago but I have been setting this aside until the new website was finished and launched. I expect this build to take around 2-3 hours.

Here is a video from BASTL where they demonstrate the Cinnamon.

My studio right now (2018)

XAKK Studio 2018

Lots of things have happened in my studio the last couple of years. I built a TTSH (Arp 2600 clone) and I also got, perhaps a bit carried away with the whole modular thing. :) Anyways, this is what it looks like now. Many of the hardware you see here was used to make my latest album Focus.

There is a more or less complete list of all the stuff on my Studio page.

I’m still alive

I noticed I haven’t been posting here in a while so here’s a little update to what I’ve been up to lately.

First of all, I have spent A TON of my spare time on building that Arp 2600 clone called the TTSH, or Two Thousand Six Hundred. It’s a massive build and I’m almost finished with it now. I will post some more pictures and sounds when the case and everything is done.

Also I switched jobs recently, so I’m now I’m back working with what you call User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Design for E-commerce. I have been there for four months now, so a lot of my creative energy have been directed towards that. I’m a senior in this area and it’s something I have been working professional with for over 20 years now.

The next album is still in the works. Gotta finish it now, I know..

I have started building a TTSH Arp 2600 clone

My big DYI synth project for this winter/spring is putting together the Arp 2600 clone TTSH (Two Thousand Six Hundred). First phase was done yesterday – finishing the three analog oscillators. Next up, soldering the 4012 filter.
