Eurorack Systems
What is Eurorack?

Eurorack is a specific type of modular synthesis that follows a universal set of rules from power output to control voltage (CV). The width and height of all Eurorack modules conform to the same dimensions, making it easy to mix and match across different Eurorack brands. While the height of each module is always 128.5mm/5.06" the width may vary using dimensions called HP or "horzontal pitch" (1HP = 5.08mm/0.2"). The input and output jacks on all modules are connected using standard mono 1/8" (3.5mm) cables.

There are many types of modules available for Eurorack, and you can mix-and-match modules from different manufacturers. We make a complete line of Eurorack modules from sound sources, timing and modulation sources, to balanced line and headphone output mixers.

With the ability to "patch" modules in to each other the variations of sound combinations are endless.

Why is Eurorack awesome?

Eurorack is the most cutting-edge musical instrument format today. The most innovative and ground-breaking devices are released in Eurorack. Many musicians find it easier to be creative when using physical hardware instead of a computer screen. Eurorack modules range from analog circuits to modern DSP effects, so playing this format gives you the best of all possible worlds.

Each time you patch a Eurorack synth, you are creating a custom instrument.
How do I get started?

Below we have some recomendations for different combinations, or you can pick anything that catches your eye from our modules page!
Step 1 : Pick out modules

Depending on the type of sounds you are hoping to make we offer many different modules, each serving a different function. Here are some fine pairings that will help you get there.
Spectral Multiband Resonator
Rhythmic Resonance
  • Spectral Multiband Resonantor
  • and Quad Clock Distributor
Spherical Wavetable Navigator Tapographic Delay
Drones and Lush Melodies
  • Spherical Wavetable Navigator
  • Tapographic Delay
Dual Looping Delay Pingable Envelope Generator
Poly-rhythmic Loops and Echoes
  • Dual Looping Delay
  • Pingable Envelope Generator
Stereo Triggered Sample Quad Clock Distributor QCD Expander
Clock Sync'ed Sampler
  • Stereo Triggered Sampler
  • Quad Clock Distributor
  • QCD Expander

Step 2 : Listen Outputs

You need a way to hear the cool sounds you're going to make! Whether you're using headphones or speakers, you'll need an output module.
Most audio gear runs at what's known as "line level", but Eurorack modules work with "modular level" signals. This gives Eurorack tons of headroom, but it also means you need convert to line level whenver you connect to external gear such as amps, speakers, computers, or other synths. Also, if you plan to run audio into your Eurorack system, you'll want to convert from line level up to modular level.
Don't worry if this is confusing! We make an inexpensive all-in-one module that handles this, called the Listen IO, which lets you take audio in and out from Eurorack.
Listen IO
Listen I/O:
  • Converts a stereo modular-level signal into line or headphone out.
  • Also converts line-level to modular level!
Listen Four
Listen Four:
  • Four channel stereo mixer with headphone out and stereo line out (3.5mm / 1/8")
Listen Four Quarters
Listen 4 Quarters:
  • Same as the Listen Four, but with balanced output jacks (6.35mm / 1/4")
  • Also converts line-level to modular level!

Step 3 : Box it up

You need a case to mount the modules in. We make mini cases called Pods which are a great way to start (and the power supply is built-in, so you don't have to worry about that). We make them in a variety of sizes, and you can connect multiple Pods together.
