August was again a busy month here at tangible waves! I’m still working very hard on getting all the orders out of the door while improving the production process and also designing and testing new modules. I’m very grateful for the patience and kind words of those who are now waiting some time to get their AE Modular system.
NEW Module available - MULTIFX
It is with great pleasure that I announce the availability of the MultiFX module. It is based on the Spin FV-1 chip, which is also being used in many very successful Eurorack effects modules. The module comes with 7 factory effects and 8 that are custom programmed. In total there are 15 effects, each of which can be modulated with 3 parameters and these can in turn be changed via the knobs or CV. In addition you can change the resolution to high or low (for some dirty, glitchy sounds) and add in an analog feedback.
The Tuesday Night Machines has prepared a very thorough demo:
And this video shows the MultiFX module being used in a Shimmer Jam:
You can order it from the tangible waves shop at
Updates from the Forum
Our new forum opened at the end of July and while only 6 weeks old it is already buzzing with activity. We have over 42 members who have written and contributed to 180 posts. As usual there are a few members who are more active than others, but over time I hope that more and more people will post their ideas, creations and tips so that the community as a whole can learn and grow.
Here are some highlights from the forum so far:
We posted our first Content Spotlight in late July and it was well received. It featured Felix aka The Tuesday Night Machines. Check it out at the link below: http://forum.aemodular.com/thread/15/content-spotlight-july-felix-nightmachines
Also, if you have questions about any of the tangible wave products, please post them to the tangible waves sub forum: http://forum.aemodular.com/board/4/tangible-waves
New and Improved Modules coming soon
Even with a busy month with so many orders to fulfil, I’m also spending time designing, testing and perfecting existing and redesigned modules.
I know that most of you want more features in the AE system as this forum thread shows: http://forum.aemodular.com/thread/8/future-module-list
Designing and building all of these modules would take quite a long time, so I’m thinking about how to enable others to design and sell modules for the AE Modular format. Please stay tuned for updates on this.
You can always check the Sunrise Page on this website for updates on new modules as they progress through the stages from design to production ready.
What’s going on behind the scenes
Besides the “big” news like new modules, there are several improvements to other parts of the AE Modular system that are in progress or already done:
