At the 2015 Summer NAMM Show, Pittsburgh Modular was showing their Patch Box Eurorack enclosure. They describe the Patch Box as ‘an epic shift in the definition of what a modular can be.’
That sounds a little hyperbolic – until you consider that the Patch Box opens up the Euro world to an audience exponentially larger than the traditional synth audience.
Here’s Pittsburgh Modular’s Richard Nikol introducing the Patch Box:
The first part of this video is an overview of the Patch Box. The second digs into details with a few sample Patch Box systems and showing how they can be used.
Note that, while the systems that Nikol had on hand at Summer NAMM were tailored to guitar players, they can be configured with any Eurorack module that you like, as long as the module is physically compatible with the depth available.
