Physical Modeling System (Système Acoustique)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 2,150.00

 This small system came about from our desire to build a unique and self-contained modular instrument that can be used in a variety of applications and occupy a modest amount of desk space.

Powerful modules like the Pittsburgh KB-1 and Mutable Instruments Rings supply tactile control and a huge sonic pallet. An overabundance of modulation can be found in the Quad Pingable LFO and MI Kinks. Connect your modular to a computer or other MIDI hardware via the 2hp Midi module. We even rounded it out with the big daddy of Eurorack reverb modules - the Make Noise Erbe-Verb. 

As always, our pre-built systems come with everything you need to plug and play and includes patch cables, a passive mult, and a slick Nerd Audio tee shirt : )
