The Soundmachines Modulor114 is a self-contained modular synthesizer housed in an 84HP Eurorack panel mounted inside a custom case that can be powered in one of three ways: via USB, power adaptor, or Eurorack power cable. The synthesizer is compatible with all Eurorack format modules, but is a beast in its own right. A built-in USB/MIDI interface ensures optimal control with an external keyboard or sequencer. Other tactile controls include a ribbon controller and straightforward front panel interface with a convenient layout.
The USB/MIDI section also converts MIDI to CV, while subsequent modules include an oscillator with PWM functionality, noise, and both a sync and sub-oscillator. There’s also a second oscillator that can be assigned to either VCO or LFO duties. Beyond that, the Modulor114’s built-in quantizer features selectable scales and can be used alongside the ribbon controller, making it a powerful performance tool.
In terms of filtering, the VCF features both low- and bandpass outputs and is capable of self-oscillation with enough resonance. There’s also a VCA and ADSR section, the latter of which can be looped for use as a square or triangle LFO. Aside from the meat, there are also dozens of utilities spread across the synthesizer, such as sample & hold, slew limiters, multiples, and attenuators. If all that wasn’t enough, the Modulor114 boasts a powerful DSP effects section that can be tempo synced for advanced rhythmic patterns.
