Probe:2 The Quadslope Compilation

Serge Modular Compilation

The Serge lovers at have announced another free album of electronic music that features a heavy dose of Serge Modular goodness, Probe:2 The Quadslope Compilation.

Here’s what they have to say about the new album:

We are proud to report word of a new transmission received from the Quadslope Probe as it slides effortlessly through the abyss. This one comes from an unorganized thought void of time or light. The Probe and it’s sensors have been re-calibrated to listen only mode. These are the raw, unmixed, and unedited sounds that are captured in real time therein. The trained ear can isolate Punch and Judy, flowing Banana Beards, and an excitable T-Rex, chomping on rocks amidst the jungles and woodlands of an indescribable origin.

Download Probe:2 The Quadslope Compilation at the Quadslope site.
