Hungry Robot, maker of ambient and experimental guitar pedals since 2012, is dipping their toes into the modular world with a new lineup of desktop Modular Boxes. They tell us that the new modules are built in a unique format, attempting to bring greater accessibility and flexibility to modular synth users at a reasonable price.
Upon release there are 13 modules. The first group of designs focus on the bread-and-butter modules, the basic building blocks found in almost every modular rig. They require no case and are compatible with most power supplies used for guitar pedals. Hungry Robot believes that this makes them a very attractive entry point for new modular explorers starting on a budget.
A spokesperson said, "They are portable and fully compatible with Eurorack and most semi-modular synths. The lineup provides a low cost option for those looking to expand their current Eurorack or semi-modular synths without committing to new rack space. They also provide a gateway drug for those starting their modular journey."
