We loved the original PatchBlocks when we reveiwed them back in August 2015, finding them to be "hardware devices that can literally be almost anything you want in terms of effects, audio playback, synthesizer, clock unit, or other. And, they link together!" Read the full review here.
Here’s what Maker.ie tell us (and show us) about the new eurorack PatchBlock synth modules they've made:
Maker.ie are delighted and humbled to have been working with Patchblocks over the last few months to develop a Eurorack modular synth version of Patchblocks, the programmable mini synth originally produced by patchblocks.com.
Patchblocks allows the user to program and customise how the module behaves; it can be an audio oscillator, sequencer, drum machine, effects unit - the limit is your imagination.
Programming the module is achieved by using the Patchblocks super intuitive graphical programming environment that requires no actual coding. There are already dozens of Patches designed by users over at the Patchblocks community. Patches can be uploaded to Patchblocks hardware devices and used for live performance or in a studio environment.
Users with coding chops can also put their skills into action by developing Blocks of code that can be shared with the Patchblocks community and included in Patches.
