SW Tractor Beam 12 eurorack module, May the Force be with you!

It’s not every year we get a new Star Wars movie and considering how much the first ones influenced me I had to do something to show my appreciation.  I borrowed the electronics from the ‘Sounds of Star Wars’ book and added a backlight to the LCD screen and CV controls for the buttons.  So, every time I want to feel like a kid I can patch away!

Includes 256 sounds from the first six movies.  Plenty for me to get the FORCE on:)

Korg Kaossilator 2s eurorack module

If you know how much I like the Korg MKP2s then you would think it just would be a matter of time before I would get around to euromodding a Kaossilator!  I honestly do not know what took me soooo long.  I guess I thought I would not need a dedicated phrase synth in my eurorack.  But after playing with it for only a few minutes I found the acoustic instruments very pleasing and flexible to use.  I thought having CV control over the play function would be great and keeping it fairly small at 20HP would work too.

Dr.Rhythm DR-55 1U tile drum machine

Might just be one of the smallest drum machines on the planet!  Continuing along in our early drum machines theme is the Dr.Rhythm DR-55.  This is based on the D-4 chip from Jan Ostman.  More info on his chip is located here:  https://janostman.wordpress.com/2015/11/12/release-for-the-dsp-d4-drumchip/

If you are a eurorack modular enthusiast and have run out of 3U room, this tile makes it easier than ever to add some old school percussion to your rack. 

Rhythm TR-727 Eurorack module

Do you remember some of the cool unusual drum machines from the 80’s?  The TR-727 was one of the unusual ones as it featured primarily Latin percussion sounds like Bongo’s and Maracas.  Jan Ostman has made a recreation of those sounds and built them into a chip.  More info here:  https://janostman.wordpress.com/2015/09/20/the-dsp-l8-pcm-latin-percus sions/

I designed a 10HP eurorack module that accepts his chips and tried to bring back a little aesthetic flair from the design of those early drum machines.
