The announcement of EaganMatrix Module in September was something that made me very excited. Admittedly, the Eurorack adaptation also caused some conflicting points when it comes to my own ideas of how I would personally use it.
I do not have a comprehensive Eurorack system and did/do not plan to get one.
To use it independently in a small case would leave some of the new, built in possibilities and concepts unused much of the time. It would indeed be nice to investigate these resources and abilities.
I think many - if anything, ever - excepted or wished for EaganMatrix in a box: simple, fully featured 6x DSP with usb host capabilities. I, for one, would have found this very immediate and quite beautiful.
This is something completely different, I think. And perhaps more interesting.
The various ways the EaganMatrix Module could find a place in music creation I thought justifies a dedicated thread of its’ own. I hope for some discussion on very different ideas, comments and critiques.
After having let go of the thought of the module for some time, an idea gradually developed in my head (and I ordered it two weeks ago). I post it below. I appreciate critique on it but mostly it would be nice to broaden the scope even more. Please pitch in!
