Jomox Eurorack

Jomox is going to release it’s Mbase kick drum and Mbrane snare/percussion modules in Eurorack format! I have both desktop versions and I think this is an exciting thing. Besides the fact you can use this in a modular system notice there are now more dedicated knobs for parameters. Want!

“Continuing the proven Jomox analog drum desktop modules, we have decided to expand into the 19” euro rack market while keeping the tradition of our storeable analog sound production. To achieve this, we had to develop a complete new analog control system for our circuitries inside these modules. Everything is storeable and can be recalled via encoder klick from 128 presets. But for the analog feel of modular, eight potentiometers give you the fine and precise editing of the most important parameters without stepping through menus. E-Drummers can create complete E-drum setups, because there is an internal Jomox analog connection bus with a fast digital link which can do a submix and an FX send mix from each module hooked up to the bus. Over this system bus you won’t need to use the audio outputs but instead you have a programmable bus system that can link to future master, sequencer and mixing or effects modules – which can take control over the single modules. This makes the whole modular setup recallable and storeable from a center module like a drum machine.” – jomox.de

Wire to the Ear birthday 4 years

Happy Birthday – 4 Years – Wire to the Ear by thingstocome

It’s hard for me to believe that I have been writing to you for 4 years. In that time there were 1,235 posts, 622,235 Unique Visitors and a whole lot of conversation. The two most popular posts so far haven been “Is learning at the SAE Institute Worthwhile?” (link) and “Keep your channel faders low and the master at 0db!” (link). What’s a birthday without gifts? So I bought myself a Jomox Mbrane from Novamusik. Prepare for snare! I also loaded up the Songify app and did a disservice to the world with the diddy above. Thank you for reading and commenting. Stay on the rhythm!

“Happy Birthday to You”, also known more simply as “Happy Birthday”, is a song that is traditionally sung to celebrate the anniversary of a person’s birth. According to the 1998 Guinness Book of World Records, “Happy Birthday to You” is the most recognized song in the English language, followed by “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” The song’s base lyrics have been translated into at least 18 languages.” – Wikipedia

“Analog Membrane Modeling. Two analog T-bridge oscillators become electronic membranes. Why? Because they can be coupled. And because their dampening can be controlled. Then add a little noise, add a little envelope, and the brand new electronic percussion synthesizer of Jomox is ready.” – novamusik.com

I definitely want one of these. There is some real vintage analog snappiness to this box. What do you think?
