Custom Eurorack Synth modules

This is a collection of custom synthesizer modules designed around the Eurorack standard.

The goal is to design these from scratch; I can use textbook and datasheet example circuits, and I can look at other circuits for ideas and inspiration, but I’m not cloning an existing circuit but instead coming up with my own designs.

Some of these modules are emulated in Max MSP to preview how the circuits will sound.

Modules

This is a work in progress; different modules are at different stages of development.

Utilities

In the process of building these modules, I’ve also built some tools to assist.
