Dear AE modular Community,
December was an extremely busy month with many orders and again I’ve tried my hardest to assemble and send them out in time, but even though the new production measures have helped a lot I’ve still a long list of orders to ship. My apologies to all that have missed their system for Christmas and are still waiting for it.
In December I also released not just one, but six new modules which now brings the count of available modules to 32!
I did take it more easy over January, but have still continued to work on shipping orders and also designing and testing prototypes of new modules, so stay tuned, there’s more to come!
New Rack Cases!
The new cases are finally here! They come in single and double rows and three different widths. They also feature a new power distribution system which makes it possible to combine them without using the Racklink module. A new hinge can be used to attach two or more together to form a much bigger rack.
These are all now available directly from the web store.
New Module Release
The OR2x4 is a logic module which provides two logical OR circuits and a gate trigger with which you can trigger the output of the module. Two of these modules can be combined to an 8 input OR via a switch.
This module can now be ordered from the webstore.
News from the Forum
The forum is growing and we could celebrate our first 1,000 posts this month!
Weekly Patch Challenge
Mark aka @thetechnobear has started the weekly Patch Challenges and these proved to be a great source of inspiration and I hope that these will attract more people to post their creations on the forum. You can find the patch challenges and other performances here:
The NAMM 2019 show was in full swing in January and of special interest was the new Korg Volca Modular, which at first glance looked compatible with AE, but on further investigation isn’t. See the discussion about this here: http://forum.aemodular.com/thread/151/korg-volca-modular
Personally I see the Korg Volca Modular as a great entry into the world of modular synthesis for people that are new to this. With a growing range of over 32 modules the AE Modular product range can then provide the variety of additional modules once someone wants to expand their Volca modular and dive deeper into synthesis.
