Pittsburgh Modular Foundation

So yes there are a lot of new table top analog synths such as the new Arturia MiniBrute and Moog Minitaur. But what if have three times the cash in your pocket and 10 times the need to impress the hell out of your friends? Clearly the new Pittsburgh Modular Foundation should be on your short wish list. It’s a selection of Eurorack modular Modules in a Monorocket case. This selection gives you a solid synth at about a 10% discount. Pretty isn’t it?

“The Foundation is a fully modular, eurorack, analog synthesizer. A patchable system styled after the great monosynths of the past with no hardwired signal path or fixed voice architecture to restrict creativity. Driven by two wide range analog oscillators the Foundation produces a huge, warm sound that can’t be matched by digital or VST synths. All of the elements of a classic voltage controlled synthesizer are available as an open, patchable, modern synth.

The Foundation is a “complete voice”. It contains all the modules needed to produce a wide variety of complex sounds such as monster analog bass, cutting leads, evolving pads, and short percussive hits. All of which can be controlled directly using the Foundations’ 42 knobs and switches then played with any standard Midi controller. The Foundation is also fully compatable with Expert Sleepers Silent Way software plug-ins.” – Pittsburgh Modular

    Oliver, if you’re still thinking about a modular, you could do a lot worse than a solid Pittsburgh rig like this. I’ve got Pittsburgh’s Analog Delay and a few utility modules and they’re just great. Plus those big knobs are just the best.

    • I think your right. I decided to make it to some meetups and try things before I go all out. My eBay drum machine addiction has also been delaying my modular start (Univox SR-95 coming today!).

        The used market is pretty rich for modular stuff. So if you bought used, you’d easily sell it back at the same price. Just sayin. I just unloaded five under-used modules on my rig and bought a Teenage OP-1 with the income.
