A modular synthesizer is a combination of modules. These modules can be connected together in nearly endless ways. You don’t buy a modular system at once, it is something that grows. Every modular synthesizer is different!
In 2018, modular404 started as a kind of glitch: right after taking a shower, a hand reaching out to the towel, one foot lifted to get out of the shower cabin, a sudden spark of light: one of those moments when a long story becomes clear at an instant a kind of glitch:
By releasing all tracks as modular404 featuring the original artist, a slow community-like effect happened: every new modular404 release also made the other releases stronger - correction: that was my expectation, but it took a year and a half before that started working
In april 2021, we reased our 25th track, we have over 14000 streams on spotify and tracks are picked up in other playlists, and I’m proud for not having paid any money to get into playlists
It’s good to see the modular community growing, there’s finally a modular radio station https://modular-station.com and modular404 has a weekly show on it :-)
