Limaflo MotoMouth – DIY Build

Limaflo MotoMouth Eurorack Module - DIY Build

Completed MotoMouth Module Front View

As the summer is ticks along, we decided to take on a relatively new module. The LimaFlo MotoMouth Formant Filter. MotoMouth was originally a Kickstarter project that was first launched in March of 2017, and thanks to its backers, the MotoMouth was born. Our buddies over at Synthrotek were one of the first to have the DIY kits and you better believe we had to get our hands on this one and line it up for our final July build. 

Before we get into the build notes, videos and audio samples, you are probably wondering what in the world that the MotoMouth does. The Motomouth is described as an analogue 3-Band, Sedra + Espinoza Bandpass Filter (DABP) with resonant frequencies that are tuned to the same resonant frequencies that are found in the human mouth and nose cavities.

These frequencies can be varied, independently, to form different ‘mouth shapes’, to emulate vowels such as A, E, I, O and U.  In the end, this module can essentially emulate 16 vowels and ‘morph’ or ‘glide’ between each vowel using a single Control Voltage input (1V/Oct), and a Gate to ‘snap’ to each vowel when required.

A Night Of Ambient Music by The Other Place

The Other Place is a night of ambient music featuring r beny, shipwreck detective, Venetian Veil, and Yseulde, hosted by The Red Museum.

r beny is the project of Bay Area native Austin Cairns. Cairns’s early work was a study in naturalistic solitude, but his work has trended towards a more plaintive, intimate space, culminating in the beautiful Echo’s Verse (2019 Dauw). https://rbeny.bandcamp.com/album/echos-verse

Rat King Modular SEQ (Random Sequencer) – DIY Build

RK Random Sequencer (SEQ) Modular Build

Rat King Modular SEQ DIY Kit

For our first build of July, we take on the Rat King Modular Random Sequencer (or SEQ as it’s known). This build is hot on the tails (no pun intended!) of the EVENT that we completed last month and we have to admit it . . . it was just as fun to build as the EVENT.

The Random SEQ panel and PCB are laid out similarly to the EVENT with its matte black panel and mustard yellow PCB. The blue hue from the LED below the panel appears frosted as the LED is not a panel through mount.

One might question how many more modules the Rat King will make… all we can hope for is a lot more!

As for the build itself, it was a quick and easy build for the advanced or intermediate builder lasting only about an hour. For the novice builders, this is a great one to get your feet wet with as the BOM and quick setup instructions (provided with the kit or available online) allow for easy reading.
