The Modulin Is What You Get When You Cross A Violin With A Modular Synthesizer

This video, via Wintergatan, is an demo of the Modulin – a custom hybrid violin/modular synthesizer.

It’s a bizarre hybrid, and looks heavy and cumbersome to use, but it is also expressive and powerful.

Check it out and let us know what you think of the idea of putting modular synth components in a violin!

  1. oh come on this has to be a joke, all he’s done is screw some modular bits together, this is no hybrid, violin or otherwise.

    its screwing two motorcycles together and calling them a hybrid car.

  2. Even granting that having to hold this thing sticking out from your shoulder like a violin is a good idea (which I doubt), why, exactly, is it a good idea to have to carry the weight of the modules?

    A violin is held the way it is to allow bowing. This thing has nothing like the expressiveness of a bow.
