New Volca-Inspired AE Modular

New Volca-Inspired AE Modular

Abused Electronics presented their new product – AE Modular - depicting it as "a true analog modular synthesizer - small in size, small in price, big in sound." The instrument isn’t eurorack compatible as well as can’t be integrated with other standards – thanks to Tangible Waves there was a whole new system created which according to the developers makes this instrument smaller and more affordable than most eurorack format synths.

Abused Electronics  AE ModularAbused Electronics are sure that the world needs another analog modular synthesizer: a less costly, smaller machine with a super sound which anyone can get access to.

The new instrument could actually draw musicians’ attention as soon as the release was announced. Even AE Modular construction looks in a unique way sporting its distinctive features: all the inscriptions or front panel design weren’t printed (as it is in every instrument of such a range). The words and signs are rubber-stamped which gives it kind of a postmodern hint. The designers leave all the worries about the quality behind – the ink is lasting and won’t start to fade and wear off.

Another peculiarity is that AE Modular features simple patch-wires and small pin-sockets (not eurorack type minijack-cables) which saved some modular space and definitely cut the cost of it.

AE Modular was born as a Kickstarter project that’s why it could easily gain this crucial dose of attention.

The price varies depending on the modules number: rack 1 (including 16 modules) of AE Modular is available for €385, rack 2 (32 modules) will cost you €490.
