    1. If you add all the module prices at noise kitchen, plus cost of the case, it’d be like €1200 easily. Some of the modules here are duplicates, so after that I’d guess €1500. Pretty costly but it’d be worth it for sure

  1. My sentiment excactly (regarding wanting some of these modules as my entry into the modular world). I started to visit muffwiggler to learn the fundamentals, this way i can decide which modules to start with.

  2. Nice. Hope they do offer kits as previously mentioned.

    The complete synth looks a little too uniform, though some no doubt like that.

    The grandPa looks to be a modular upgrade of their microGranny – which would be really neat.
