A deep module with many sweet spots & surprises. The palate of sound the Plague bearer opens up is astonishing. This module is diverse in many ways and should not be overlooked as esoteric just because of its ill-temper, it could be regarded if it were assessed under psychiatry as having a personality disorder. When tamed down its capable of very 'nice' natural sounds associated with noise sources such as water, steam, ocean wind etc, as well as industrial ambiance & disconcerting illbiance and drones. There are possibilities of industrial rhythmic material including snares, bass drums et al. Its also capable of being ferocious and unpolished whilst holding your eurorack hostage at gunpoint!
They work very well in pairs and at this price point there is little reason to not get 2, the build quality is solid. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. - jimbo (2013-01-09 08:10:52)
