Do we need more style in modular synths?

That’s the question raised by the latest design from designer and craftsman Love Hultén.

Hultén creates custom one-of-a-kind designs that be builds himself and sells via his site.

The MDLR-37 is a custom portable modular synthesizer, divided into four sections. The hand-crafted system folds into a carrier when not in use.

The MDLR-37 is based on existing synths, including: Korg Minilogue, Korg Microkey 37, Meris ENZO, T-Rex Replicator & Doepfer A-199. Hultén completely tranforms them, though, creating a system that looks like more than the sum of its parts.

In comparison, most modular Eurorack systems look like a mish-mash of competing ideas from different people.
