Waveform Magazine Project 3 - The Switchenator - DIY Build
Issue 3 of Waveform Magazine (Winter 2020) is chock full of reviews, interviews, gear and even a new DIY Project. For their third DIY project, Waveform have provided us with another utility module that requires zero power and allows attenuation and signal toggling on the fly.
Waveform Magazine Project 3 is known as the one and only Switchenator!
We were thankful to take this build on and see what this module was all about!
To sum it up, the Switchenator is a dual passive attenuator and dual switch for Eurorack systems…. and it’s a little 4HP beast.
What’s this Waveform Magazine again?
As previously mentioned in our Gateway Oscilloscope write up, Waveform Magazine is the first and only publication dedicated to modular synths. With that being said, we were stoked to receive the Winter 2020 edition of Waveform earlier this month partially due to all of the new gear reviews and industry news that they provide.
One of our favorite features is interviews with the modular synth manufacturers. It’s really cool to get to read about their journeys into modular synthesis and how they started their businesses. The interviews are so well written, it almost makes it feel like you know the owner of the modular company upon completing the article.
Note: In case you missed the opportunity to get the first three issues of Waveform, you can still pick them up over at the Waveform site (which we HIGHLY recommend you do!)
