General articles about eurorack and modulars

Music Furniture

Recently – through a discussion on the online forum llllllll – I found out about various appearances of modular synths in adverts for Swedish furniture company Ikea. Credit go to users xmacex and Knivtid, who provided the photos and most of the intel. Now, this is interesting for various reasons. It’s a clear sign that […]

Synth Design Podcast

I was recently inerviewed by the Synthux Academy podcast about my work as a Eurorack Frontpanel Interface Designer. If listening to me rambling for an hour about frontpanels, interface design and how we created the front-facing part of Mutable Instruments’ Beads and Hexinverter’s Minphaser, sounds intriguing to you, then [...]

2016

The year is about to end and we’d like to thank you for reading, commenting and sharing our articles in the past 7 months! Horizontalpitch is not even one year old (our first post is from April 2015) but it’s already been an amazing experience, though not always an easy one. As you might have noticed our posts have become a bit less frequent lately, but don’t worry, we’ll try to make up for it in 2016.

This said, have a happy and musically creative 2016!

Infinite Possibilities

The word “infinite” as in “infinite possibilities”, comes up quite often when a new synth, DAW, or any other piece of musical equipment gets presented in ads, online videos or at trade shows. Usually what the marketing departments are trying to say with this hyperbole, is that the device will offer even more sonic [...]
