The beauty of a modular synth setup is it can be pretty much anything. Want to replicate the sound of a classic analogue synth? Create a self-generating ambient machine? Focus on just drums, effects processing or sequencing? Modular can do all that and more. 

The flipside to that broad scope, however, is that it can be tough to know where to begin. That’s where our latest cover feature comes in. We’re here to help you build the perfect Eurorack system for your studio.
