Incredible steampunk analogue modular sequencer
I’m a huge fan of analogue modular synthesizers. I used to have a big Moog, now I’ve got a MOTM and Doepfer modular. Other than the obvious sound generating madness, I also like how they look. Well, take a look at this more-retro-than-retro analogue sequencer.
This amazing sequencer has a huge amount of of dials and intricate brass etching throughout. Everything on the sequencer, including all of the buttons and knobs were lathed entirely by hand. It also includes a number of ‘real’ antique parts. Check out the case:
I just cannot imagine how much time was put into the thing. I’ve built a few sequencers myself, and just the electronics take a lot of time, I can only imagine how much effort when into this incredible unit.
The sequencer was built by Created by Berlin artist and musician Moritz Wolpert, and is more than just art – it actually works.
I’d love to see a full analogue modular done in this fashion. Here’s to hoping that it’s already in progress!
