Electronic Musician – May 2016

This month we take a look at Multitasking Modules.

If you are looking to fill your Eurorack spaces with synths that perform double- duty this is a must read issue. We survey a dozen of the latest options.

Not everyone agrees, but the synthesizer format wars are over, and Eurorack is the clear winner. One of the most noticeable trends at this year’s NAMM show in January was the proliferation of synth modules in Eurorack format, with small manufacturers sharing the main hall with larger, better-known companies. Other modular formats remained almost entirely on the sidelines.
