A blogzine about modular synthesizers, music experiments and life without presets

Pikamod, by Hannes Pasqualini

This time, the new cover photo is one of my own creations. This shot was originally intended to be used for one my band’s gig posters (www.kvsu.net), but then we went with an illustrated version instead. Since I really like this photo and the Pikachu is holding some patchcables (plus, there’s a modular in the background, though you can hardly tell), I decided to use it for our blogzine instead.

This bent Pikachu was made by the great Japanese circuit bender Kaseo.

Far from being an uncommon utterance among the modular crowd, whether it be jamming at home or taking a portable modular system to a live venue, this sentence has a certain gravitas [...]

Modular Spam Sandwich Anyone?

If you ever ran a blog (or are running one) you’ll know how much comment spam one has to handle. We sure get a lot here. 99% of the time, spam is just what you’d expect it: Pornography. dubious, loans, online games, cheap drugs, that kind of stuff. All the more I was surprised to find this spam comment here: What you’re [...]

Moritz is one of the two guys who run Endorphin.es, but he’s also a prolific and talented musician. It’s not a rare thing to find that somebody [...]

First of all, let’s welcome our new collaborator John Loffink to Horizontalpitch. John has been updating our PSU list, merging it with one he was already maintaining, taking it to a whole new level. He didn’t just collect data from the manufacturer’s websites, he also took direct measurements himself and added a lot of specs that were previously missing. Also, thanks to John, we now have most powered cases in the list as well.

Two other projects by John worth checking out: www.microtonal-synthesis.com and www.wavemakers-synth.com
