When I first heard about the Koma Field Kit, I was pretty excited because it’s right up my alley. I made my own eurorack system for processing field recordings, and this little box was made for capturing and mangling found sound type sources. Naturally I was curious how this little guy would compare to my system.

June 2018 was special because I got to review an entire synth instead of just a module. The Pittsburgh Modular Microvolt 3900 provides a fun bridge between east coast and west coast approaches. Domo kun approves.

In May 2018, I delved into the Graphic VCO from Erica Synths. This fun and handsome little guy offers a variety of tweakable timbres.

The eurorack world continued to expand in 2017 with a large number of new modules, as well as improvements on old modules unleashed into awaiting racks and eager hands. Distilling these new additions to the landscape into a top ten list seemed like an exercise that was doomed to fail. Instead I decided to list a few module highlights in a few categories. So here are some of the modules that caught my eye, or created enough buzz for me to take notice.
