The Joy Of Maths

There is one module that seems to be highly visible in just about every Eurorack setup. Dave Gale asks why this should be and encourages you to do the Maths…

I’ve been embroiled in the world of synthesisers for many years, since the 1980s in fact, and back in my youth, I would spend many an hour drooling over catalogues from the likes of Roland, wondering how, as a 14-year-old schoolboy, I was ever going to be able to afford a huge analogue polysynth that had an RRP of £3,999. Fast-forward 30 years, and I still find myself looking at catalogues, albeit via the inter-web, and wondering how I am not only going to afford the latest piece of analogue kit, but also explain it away to my long suffering wife (I can feel her eyes rolling as I write about it). So when I entered into the world of Eurorack a while ago, I noticed that a great many Eurorack enthusiasts seemed to have one highly identifiable module in their rigs – namely Maths, from Make Noise.
