Portland Oregon is fast becoming a hive of modular synth activity. With two dedicated modular stores (Control Voltage and Muffwiggler) a manufacturing house (Darkplace Manufacturing) and at least three companies I can think of now residing there.
The next two teases come straight from the Pacific North West.
At first glance it looks as though this module is very definitely an 8 step sequencer. However after some digging through the forums it seems that it may have a few more tricks up it's sleeve than that. With one forum user 'ignatius' who is also an employee of the Muffwiggler store stating:
"it's probably not what you think it is. those sliders aren't doing what you think they're doing."
The second tease of this module comes from Baseck a Producer now residing in Portland who works closely with Darkplace Manufacturing and the Muffwiggler store.
This video may also give us some more clues as to the functionality of the module. We can see there is a steady clock input and there is also four output triggers/clocks along the bottom indicating that the sliders might well have some sort of multiplying/division function...
So another teaser that is coming out of Portland is this absolutely massive sequencer from Sputnik Modular called the "Dual Multisegment Function Generator".
It seems from my very limited reading on the subject that this may well be based on the design of the Buchla Arbitrary Function Generator. Which would fit well with the rest of the line of Sputnik Modules, however, this resembles nothing of the Arbitrary Function Generator, at least in its front panel design... So we will just have to wait until NAMM to find out!
