Shout outs to the birds outside my house! (you’ll see what I mean) … I wanted to make this video to highlight something that’s really simple but I think an important part of a modular system.
In the video I go through the Receive 2 (RX2) and Transmit 2 (TX2) from Joranalogue Audio Design. They are a dual balanced XLR/Jack input pre amp and a stereo balanced output and headphone amp. Having quality interfacing and gain staging throughout the studio/stage is important for ensuring things work properly. Yes plugging a pedal or keyboard right into a Eurorack system will probably work but you’ll be closer to the noise floor and further away from the expected levels and behaviours of modules. That can lead to a varied and unsatisfactory experience a lot of the time. I also wanted to dangle a microphone outside of my house and process some real world sounds to create a foley texture and alien landscape excited and led by the suburban environment.
