SSL Brings Music Thing Modular Radio Music Module To 5U

John L Rice shared this video demo of Synthetic Sound Labs‘ new Radio Music module – a 5U version of the open source design from Music Thing Modular.

Radio Music is a virtual radio / sample player module, that behaves a bit like a radio. You can tune to the “stations” using the front panel control or the CV input jack and playback audio file from a SD card.

The module is based on a Teensy 3.2 microcontroller, so you can load alternate firmwares or even code and load your own. Several alternate firmware options are already available.

Here’s an in-depth tutorial video series on the Radio Music, via Voltage Control Lab:

  1. Hm, 5U is nice. Still I’d prefer the Make Noise Morphagene for these sort of things. I.m.o. that provides exactly the frequency range and parameter control an electronic musician requires.

  2. Fun fact: the string orchestra playing the tum-ti-tum-ti-tum tune (theme to The Archers) was recorded by Sir George Martin, no less, around 1950.
