Knobcon is here again, which means a lot of new modules! Voltage Control Lab will have plenty of coverage on Twitter this weekend, as well as another roundup (or two) next week, but you can follow the live blog from Sonic State all weekend as well. While there will be a lot of surprises throughout Knobcon, some modules that will be on display for the first time at Knobcon have already been announced or teased online.

One module that is garnering some attention is the new E950 Circuit Bent VCO from Synthesis Technology.

The E950 is a 10HP DSP-based VCO that combines the famous “smooth morphing” of the E350 Morphing Terrarium with fully licensed ‘Speak & Spell’ technology from Texas Instruments. The E950 then applies proprietary ‘bending’ algorithms to behave exactly as a standard “bent” Speak & Spell and then extends them to real-time modulation…


Low-Gain Electronics is bringing 2-Bits, a 4 stage, gate controlled sequencer with an external input option.

Examples of use: Stepped/Random CV Generator, Gate to CV Sequencer, Preset Voltage Source, Clock Divider, Programmable Offset Source

Of course, we know Roland will be there, likely showing off their new 500 series made in partnership with Malekko Heavy Industry.

Roland is also pleased to announce the development of the SYSTEM-500, an all-new, fully analog modular synthesizer based on two of the most revered electronic instruments of all time—the SYSTEM-700 and SYSTEM-100m. Designed exclusively for Eurorack, the SYSTEM-500 delivers classic Roland sound with all the advantages and reliability of a modern instrument.


This list should also include modules like the new Qu-bit EON, the SSF GateStorm and WMD MIIIIX on a list that will continue to grow over the weekend at Knobcon.
