  • Music Thing Modular - Start Up


    Today we start a series on easy beginner modules!
    This one is the Startup from Music Thing Modular, a cool first module that is a stereo mixer, a headphone amp and a clock generator with tap tempo and a divider/multiplier.
    And you only need to solder the panel components.

    Check it out here:

  • Best first Eurorack module? Start Up from Music Thing Modular // Superbooth 2019


    Is this a module we all need? There's certainly a strong argument for it with tap tempo clocks, stereo mixing and headphone/line out. It certainly meets the desire of Music Thing Modular as a module that would be a great first module for small systems. The new clock phasing modes add a nice Steve Reich flare and influence and in 4hp it's a module that's hard to ignore for small or large systems I think. Super useful!

  • Makenoise modular jam: Mutable Instruments/Music Thing Modular Ears


    Got the mutable/music things ears. Playing a contact mic with echophone. I was impressed by Mikrophonie module demo vid but this module isn't an instant gratification for me so far (well, actually most modules begin with so) and need a lot of exploration... Maybe I want the MI Rings..

    The Sharedsystem's CV bus lane has a built-in audio in jack so this is kind of redundant. But having two inputs doesn't hurt; could be for external effects etc.

  • Kit Review # 3 - Music Thing Modular Chord Organ


    Review of the Music Thing Modular Chord Organ module, which is the same hardware as the Radio Music but with a new firmware and panel. Thanks go to Thonk for supplying the kit!
    You can get yours right here:

    I forgot to point it out during the unboxing, the Teensy board is included. Everything you need is included except a micro USB cable for programming the Teensy, and an SD card for your chords list.

    AND, there's a new firmware, out right after I posted this video, that allows for 1v/oct tracking of the Root parameter! Download the new firmware here:

  • Music Thing Modular - Radio Music


    This is the first test of the Radio Music module by Music Thing Modular.

    LFO's controlling the STATION tuning and START point of the individual samples. A trigger from Mutable Instruments Grids is triggering the RESET of the sample playback.

    Drums are from Ableton Live and the synth textures from the Roland System 1m.

    Next step is to copy a load of my own samples and music onto the SD card. Great little module and not too tricky to build.

  • Modular Workout #05 - Chord Organism

  • Finding hooks with a Music Thing Modular RADIO module


    Radio music (standard library from MTM) is reset with a sequencer, and the audio passes trough a low pass filter with envelope follower attached to the cutoff frequency, also some delay is added after the filter.

    some of the modules used:

    tiptop audio :
    circadian rhythms

    Metasonix :

    ebbe und flut (unit patched up to modular)

    eventide: timefactor

  • How I Use Music Thing Modulars Radio Music


    Short patch-from-scratch video to demonstrate how I tend to use Radio Music in my Eurorack setup!

  • Music Thing Modular Spring Reverb


    Spring reverb module for Eurorack modular synths. Audio is slightly out of sync with video, sorry. Full details below...

    Top knob is reverb level.
    Right hand smaller knob is Tilt, a simple hifi-style tone control that changes the colour of the reverb.
    Left hand smaller knob is Control, an attenuverter control for the incoming CV. 12 o'clock = no CV, clockwise = increasing CV, anticlockwise = inverted CV.

    Patch: DPO sine waves sequenced by Turing Machine and Wogglebug. Gated through QMMG, envelopes from Maths. The CV input makes 80s-style gated reverb and pseudo-reverse reverb possible.

    For this demo, using a 9EB2C1B full sized reverb tank.

  • Playing with a beta Music Thing Modular Mikrophonie


    A simple contact microphone and amp in a modular format. Simple but inspiring! Not sure when it will be released yet but keep an eye on

  • Music Thing Modular Radio Music - Faux Granular


    The first channel I turn up is the output of the Radio Music. Patch Notes for the Radio Music are below.

    A loop of a chord progression is loaded into the Radio Music. A very fast series of triggers (from the 4MS shuffling clock multiplier) is patched into the Reset input. The Start input is modulated by the CV output of the sequencer on the right hand side. The clock multiplier is then randomly rotated in time with the master clock. This causes the loop to repeat very quickly at different speeds, while the start point bounces to new locations within the loop. This also works well with drum loops.

  • Music Thing Modular - Spring Reverb mkii



    Here's the mkii / mk2 or version 2 (call it what you want!) Music Thing Modular - Spring Reverb. It's a fantastic 6HP Spring Reverb module that has RCA connectors for a Spring tank around the back of the module or has them on a breakout expander which also let's you blend between the tank signal and the accutronics digital brick (which you should also buy, with the expander, as blending a tank with that is great!) The module also has a tilt EQ function that adjusts the signal into the reverb to adjust the tone and response (heavy bass transients can make those springs slap around) as well as a fully WET output and feedback input for creative patching, a XFADE input.

  • Equalizer in a Eurorack - Music Thing Modular Graphic EQ and ALM PE-1


    In this Video we will have a closer look at a graphic and a parametric Equalizer, and what benefits they can bring in an Eurorack system.
    The Music Thing Modular Graphic EQ is, as the names says, a graphical Equalizer with fixed frequencies. The ALM PE-1* is a parametric Equalizer and hence a bit more versatile.
    In the Video we listen to both Equalizers, and find out where you can use them in your Eurorack system.

    * I messed things up a little, talking about Pip Slope, whereas Pip Slope is another module from ALM. The correct name for the parametric Equalizer is PE-1.

    A thumbs up for the Video and of course a subscription to the SundayAfternoonModular channel are very much appreciated!

    Please note that my videos are NOT sponsored by anyone or any company. All the modules I am testing here, I have saved for and bought with my own money.

  • Music Thing Modular Spring Reverb Crossfade Mode


    The MTM Spring Reverb contains a vactrol crossfader that you can also use independently. Here, it is crossfading between the DPO Final and Square outputs.
    The module can be built with either a Silonex or a VTL5C3 vactrol. The VTL5C3 sounds smoother for this use, with a slower response that can be 'pinged'.

    Video and audio are slightly out of sync, sorry.

  • Radio Music Module


    Music Thing Modular and Thonk provide us with a kit offering of the Radio Music module.

    This is my build version of the kit with black faceplate and knobs. I did change the LED colors to blue but those were too dim for the power being provided so I went back to red but left the green start indicator.

    The Radio Music module is meant to be used as a source of random audio but can be uniquely controlled (or not) to suit your taste and style. I outfitted mine with a 32GB microSD card and the 16 folders you set up act as the stations on the device.

    This is some initial testing I am doing here and having a fun time with one station which I loaded Apollo 11 highlights audio from the suggested links on the module build documentation. I was one year and four days old when that glorious Saturn V lifted off.

    Along with the radio music module here you will hear a Din Sync Osc303 being driven by a Turing machine (Another Music Thing Modular creation) being filtered by a Blue Lantern Diode filter and put through a synthrotek development delay module. Another voice using the Synthrotek Chaos Nand module and ring modulated by a Delptronics unit. 4MS Atoner and Noise swash processing audio from the radio music module with cv coming from a Flame knob recorder. Pulses and control voltages also coming from two other additional Turing machine with expander modules. These are feeding to the Delptronics Little drummer boy and Din Sync Drum Dokta v1.

    These were proud moments for our space agency, our Nation, and the World. Let us not forget.

  • Studies for Dual Radio Music I - Modular Synth Ambient


    I built a portable battery powered case to explore a minimal Eurorack setup anywhere.

    Modules used;

    Music Thing Startup - In odd timing mode, one clock triggers Pam's and both clocks trigger the Radio Musics respectively. Used as a stereo output as well.

    Pamela's New Workout - Slow stepped LFO controlling Radio Music Start Point and different LFO's Modulating Clouds.

    2 x Music Thing Radio Music - Orchestral String Sample

    Mutable Instruments Clouds - In Looping Delay Mode. Freeze triggered using short pulse width over 32 bars from Pam's.

    Whilst making it originally, I fell asleep...

    The changes occur over long periods.

  • Ambient DSI Tetra and Modular/Eurorack - Rings, Clouds, Music Thing Chords Organ


    Greetings friends, I love the DSI Tetra, it is such a versatile instrument in a small box. Here it is making good friends with Mutable RIngs/Clouds and my new Music Thing Radio with the Chord Organ alt firmware on. It is also my first video using my new Tiptop mantis case which I am enjoying a lot!!

    I was on holidays with the family 2 weeks ago in a lovely place called Lyme Regis in the South of England and started composing the keyboard loop and the drums in this song. I then come back to “sunny” Manchester (cold and wet) and complete an improvisation with the rest of the kit. So decided to put in some small videos from the holiday mixed with the main video

    This is my favourite type of arrangement where I have a few midi loops created in Ableton and then I allow the modular to go wild, it is like playing in a small band… a duo really,,,, I need friends :)

    Synth: Dave Smith Instruments Tetra

    Main modules:
    Music Thing Radio with alt firmware Chord Organ and Turing Machine
    Mutable Instruments Rings, Clouds, Ripples, Shades, Tides
    Make Noise Maths
    Intellijel Dixie, uscale, uvcf
    Synthesis Technology E350 Morphing Terrarium
    Qu-bit nanorand
    2hp mix

    Software: Ableton 9 with Push, Valhalla Vintage Verb and Soundtoys plugins

    Main Voices:

    1/ Rings in FM mode going into Clouds alt mode 2. Melody created using nano Rand and Turing Machine going through the intellijel uscale

    2/ Music Thing Chord Organ going through a intellijel uVCF in low pass mode

    3/ Intellijel Dixie and E350 going into Ripples with an envelope from Maths

    Recorded all in one take into multitrack Ableton Live by a MOTU 828 mk2. Some compression in the Master Channel to finish the track. No EQ used in the channels. Very basic sound
