Here’s the new London Drive and Twin Drive Eurorack modules from Music Thing Modular alongside the original Mini Drive. They are simple, small, affordable and beginner friendly DIY kits that all provide a range of tones from more subtle to more aggressive distortion. The Mini Drive and Twin Drive are based on the external input stage of the classic Minimoog Model D where as the London Drive is based on the input stage of the EMS VCS3 and Synthi AKS.
This video goes through 10+ ways to get creative using and abusing distortion from adding weight and warmth, dynamic thickening to more aggressive fuzziness and feedback patching. There’s also CV tricks such as mixing AC and DC to make PWM like FX in the clipping itself – which sounds fantastic with these. Try out the patches and let me know which patch is your favourite.
