Our pal TL3SS got ahold of the new Terci Ruina and he is not afraid to use it and a lot of other distortions. Behold.Read More

If you are into modular synths, you probably already know Patrick O’Brien, or POB Energy. Patrick is a friend of NE, and he does all of our demo videos (and does a killer job!). A while back, we asked Patrick to put together a demo for our new Ataraxic Iteritas. In the process of making the jam for that demo, he dropped the Loquelic Iteritas Percido into the case and got ready to roll.
…and then a strange thing happened.
This week, we’re doing something a little different: we’re featuring a post from Kirk Markarian that showcases our recently released Rack Extensions for Reason. We’ve been dipping our toes into the Rack Extension world for a few months and last week released the newest installment, the Vereor series, which includes six Noise Eng oscillators with built-in low-pass gates and VCAs. Kirk was a beta tester and was kind enough to put some demos together for us, and then just kept on playing. Here we talk a bit about how he uses these and what draws him to Reason and the NE REs in particular. Think of it as sort of a written Song Exploder for Reason.Read More
This week, I got to talk to techno and deep house artist Trovarsi. I met Trovarsi a few short years ago when she was new to modular and ran into her recently at a demo. The music she’s doing these days incorporates modular into really killer beats and other parts of her work flow and I was ecstatic when she agreed to talk to us about how she uses modular.Read More
If you’ve been paying attention to Noise Engineering blog for a while, you may be familiar with Rheyne. Also known as his alter ego, Jon Barbieri, he did a great guest post about a year ago and has been posting amazing stuff all over Facebook and Youtube and, well, all the places for a while. We were chatting recently and we batted around the idea for a follow-up post.Read More
We talk to a lot of modular users. People interested in modular are trying to find that first case. People who have been doing modular for a while are always on the lookout for another case for their ever-expanding collection of modules.
We considered tackling this question but realized that our friend Shawn is a far better go-to for all things cases. Shawn has an impressive array of cases, but most are done on a budget, as you will see. These are the ones we were particularly interested in (and that draw the most questions everytime we stand close to him at a gig).
We asked Shawn to talk a little about his custom cases, the quest that brought him to them, and how he puts a case together. He’ll take it from here.Read More
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Patrick O’Brien, known in the modular world as POB or OBrienMedia. Patrick has become one of the most well-loved LA-based modular (and occasional trumpet) performers, weaving beautiful melodies and complicated patches together into some of our favorite compositions. It was a no-brainer to ask him to contribute, and we were thrilled when he agreed.Read More
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Anthony Baldino. Anthony is a talented and prolific composer and sound designer; he is also a modular user extraordinaire. We asked Anthony to compose a short piece and break it down for us, sort of a la the Podcast Song Exploder. Here, he speaks in his own words about the haunting patch he created, patching in general, and how he uses NE modules.Read More
