Switched On Modular Meet-Up & Birthday Party!!!

This Friday February 28th, 2014 Switched On is turning 4 years old!

The years have been flying by and we have had some excellent times. 
 
To celebrate we want to host a synth meet-up for a night of patching, talking synths, tunes, and good times. 
 
We invite you to bring your modular synth of any format or era. Don't worry if you don't have a modular. Anyone and any synth is welcome! Interesting effects, controllers, or computer aided workflows are also encouraged. 
 
We are going to bring some of our personal setups and items from the store as well. 
 
If you are a manufacturer, maker, do it your selfer, hacker, bender, tweaker: Please bring something you have created! 
 
NOTE: We will have some keyboard stands, tables, headphones, and mixers BUT please bring what you can to setup. Headphones are required! 
 
Show off a patch, talk technique, talk about your favorite new module, check out some other new modules, enjoy a fine beverage or 4, and get to know other people and devices.
 
This will all be happening at 2400 E. Caesar Chavez in the building with the sweet "Nice n' Clean" mural with a lowrider on it. It is also directly across from Counter Culture Cafe. 
 
We are going to get a keg of beer. Type TBA.
Catering by Counter Culture. 
 
Keith McMillen, Future Retro, and Delptronics will have new and current wares on display! More TBA

From Make Noise:
A compact Voltage Controlled Oscillator designed for generating SINE waves, Variable wave-SHAPEs, SUB-Octaves, Oscillator SYNC and Linear FM in the analog domain. The Sub-Timbral Oscillator is the more subtle and melodic friend to the DPO's complex harmonic lattice.

  • Triangle Core with outputs for SINE, SUB and Variable SHAPE
  • Unique Variable SHAPE circuit ripples Even and Odd harmonics for subtle timbral shifts
  • Linear FM input with Depth control
  • EXPOnential input for deep FM, SYNC sweeps or Transposition of sequences
  • SUB-Oscillator yields max bass
  • S-Gate input for gating or sync of SUB-Osc. independent of other outputs
  • Hard SYNC circuit which combined with Linear FM and Variable SHAPE yields harmonically rich sounds

    The Echophon and Function are also back in stock. To order Make Noise please contact us or call (512) 782-8806 to arrange payment and shipping. 

    Critter & Guitari: IIO and Melody Mill


    Critter & Guitari have entered the Eurorack modular universe with two thoughtful designs. The IIO and the Melody Mill

    The IIO is simply a speaker with a built in amplifier, two summing inputs, and knob for volume control. It is the easiest way to get amplification with your Eurorack modular system anyhere you go. We here at Switched On can't help but be reminded of the Arp 2600's internal speakers. You can read more or purchase the IIO through our website here.

    The Melody Mill will seem familiar to anyone that has seen Critter & Guitari's popular Pocket Piano.

    From Critter & Guitari:

    The Critter & Guitari Melody Mill is a note generation control module for Eurorack modular synthesizers.  It contains a keyboard, CV outputs, CV clock input, built-in arpeggiators, a sequencer, and MIDI capabilities.  The Melody Mill brings the fun of the Pocket Piano to modular setups! With the Melody Mill you can:
    • Use the CV output to control oscillators
    • Connect your MIDI controller or computer into your modular setup using the MIDI input
    • Play notes, record and playback sequences and arpeggios on your favorite modules
    • Convert MIDI clock into CV pulses
    • Clock the arpeggiator with an LFO for strange melodies
    • 'Hold' notes for drones
    • Connect the built-in square wave oscillator directly to a filter or an amp

      Pittsburgh Modular Cell 48
           

Pittsburgh Modular's Cell 48 case is one the least expensive and easiest ways to take the plunge into Eurorack modular. It includes a sturdy steel chassis, pin connectors, screws, and an AC adaptor. Best of all, the Cell 48 is designed to be expandable. Pittsburgh Modular offers wood panels to connect two (pictured below) and keep it compact enough for a desktop space. 

You can read more or purchase the Cell 48 here. Switched On also offers wood paneling for the Cell 48.

Hyperbubble - "A Synthesizer for Christmas"

Our friends Hyperbubble released a fun claymation music video featuring dancing synthesizers and lyrics about only wanting synths for Christmas. I'm sure some of you reading this may relate! You can check out more about San Antonio, Texas natives Hyperbubble on their website: http://www.hyperbubble.net/

Sequencing the EMS "Putney" VCS3a with an Electro-Harmonix 8-Step Program

We decided to share a moment with the EMS VCS3a "Putney" we have in the shop right now. In this patch we were using the Electro-Harmonix 8-Step Program to sequence it's pitch. Any Putney can be considered a collector's item and a unique studio tool, but this one bares historical significance in the synth world. It was previously owned by video art pioneers Woody & Steina Vasulka and the legendary Experimental Television Center (ETC). Included are the original patch sheets with Woody and Steina's original patches inscribed, plus 18 original pins. 

This Putney has seen excellent servicing by our technicians and is in very good cosmetic condition considering it was built in 1971. Please feel free to contact us if you have any inquiries. 

Top Picks & New Arrivals

Here are a few hand-picked and recent items that are in the shop and available to purchase online. All used or vintage items are fully functional and have seen recent servicing if needed. We ship internationally and are happy to answer any questions in regard to an item. Please feel free to e-mail us or call (512) 782-8806 during shop hours. 12pm-6pm, 7 days a week, Central Standard Time.
