In his latest loopop video, synthesist Ziv Eliraz takes a look at the Poly Effects Hector, a new Eurorack module that puts a virtual modular system into your hardware modular synthesizer.

Hector is a 30 HP, 6 in 8 out module that offers 100+ virtual modules. These include Euclidean sequencers, a convolution reverb, effects, filters, powerful LFOs, a looper, a granular texture synthesizer, a macro-oscillator and more.

Eliraz gives an overview of the module, compares it with the guitar effect version of it called Beebo, does a walkthrough of a quad delay Frippertronics-style patch compares it to other options.
