Sound Study KONTACT Mic – DIY Build

Sound Study KONTACT Mic - DIY Build

Stylized KONTACT Mic

For this build, we take on the Sound Study Kontact Mic Eurorack module. This 4HP module is a unique way to interact with your system on multiple levels. It’s creative applications are endless: finger percussion/rubbing/scratching, guitar input (works surprisingly well with just a little lo-fi crunch), acoustic sources to CV, etc.

While this module has been out awhile now, we wanted to pick up another mic source to add to our racks. The modules rad skull design along with its small footprint made it the perfect candidate!

Study what? Sound?

Sound Study Modular only produces a few modules or stand alone utilities. Along with the Kontact Mic, they are responsible for the MIDI 2 CV (stand alone or eurorack format) which we also use in our racks. Their PCBs and panels are solid and are black with silver accents.

As the MIDI 2 CV is a clone of the famous CVPAL, the Sound Study Kontact Mic is a clone of the MTM Mikrophonie. With that being said, we have both of Sound Study’s modules and we wouldn’t leave home without them!

Enough of the descriptions, let’s get onto the build


Time-lapse Build: Sound Study Midi-2-CV

Check out latest Eurorack Modular build – the Sound Study Midi-2-CV.  As part of the February Modular Building month, this was a fun module to assemble even though the board was a little finicky.  We made it through and used our new overhead rig to film the build.
