Growing the community
I’m really happy with the way the community has been growing in the Forum and on Facebook. The forum has developed into a great resource for people new to AE Modular and those that are experimenting and finding new and exciting ways to play with it.
I believe that the forum is the best medium for the community to discuss ideas and store tips and tricks. But If you would rather receive news via email, please sign up to my new mailing list which will send you news like in this blog post straight into your inbox:
And if you have any ideas, feedback or questions, please never hesitate to contact me, via the forum, the contact form on the website, or via facebook!
One thing that I would love to see and hear more is how you make music with the AE Modular! There are already some great examples out there from Felix, Mark, Zbigniew and Olivier, but I think there are many more talented musicians in our community and I would like to encourage you to record and post what you do.
New Module Released
This month I’m happy to again release a new module - The Wavefolder! It is based on a design by the great Ken Stone who in turn based his design on a circuit created by R. Lockhart.
Felix of The Tuesday Night Machines has again provided two fantastic videos on his channel which showcase this module wonderfully.
Here is a Tutorial:
Jam with Patch Notes:
You can buy the module in the online shop:
Over the last 3 months I have worked very hard on improving the whole range of modules. Starting with the introduction of the new patch sockets I have looked at each module included in the Standard Racks and worked on improving them. Last month I released the TRIQ164 which has now replaced the STEP10 module in the Standard Rack 2. In December I will release many other new and improved versions of the standard modules, eg. a new 2OSC which is still analog, but the frequency is digitally controlled so that it now tracks perfectly across the whole range. I’ve also developed a new dual envelope module to replace the 2 single envelopes in the standard rack.
And finally there will be a new rack design which will be better extensible and come in 3 widths.
More on this to come in the next few weeks!

News and Updates from the Forum
New AE Modular Performances
It’s so great to hear (and see) the AE Modular in action and I am amazed at the creativity at display by the members of our community. I’m just listing the last few performances that were posted in the forum over the last few weeks:
Also Leon asks for artists who may be interested in participating in a Compilation Tape! Please read more here: http://forum.aemodular.com/thread/103/looking-artists-compilation-tape
The newly released book Patch & Tweak has a half page feature of tangible waves and the AE Modular system!
It is a great book with fantastic photos, interviews and too many ideas to count. If you haven’t been part of the kickstarter you can buy the book online at https://www.pushturnmove.com/products/patch-tweak-exploring-modular-synthesis
The only flaw regarding AE is that the book says, the frontpanels are made of cardboard, which is not true - it’s MDF board :-)
