Modular synthesis in Eurorack format changes the world of music production.
Davide Ricci from KillingToys Roma
May, 5 2017 – 10:30 am – Tor Vergata University – Rome
Sound design, composition and live music have undergone a radical change thanks to the return of modular synthesis and the use of eurorack synthesizers, which we find today in most production studios.
Appeared in Italy for some years now with revisions of old systems (eg Buchla, Moog) today bring the musician to enter into symbiosis with the synthesizer himself by letting it be carried by infinite sound possibilities.
Together we will discover:
- The evolution of eurorack systems
- How to assemble an eurorack synthesizer
- The components of an analog synthesizer
- The path of the audio signal
- Testing and listening to some eurorack modules
The last part of the seminar on modular synthesizers will allow you to touch the synths brought to the event with your hand.

ARREL Audio Was founded by professionals with long experience in the professional audio industry and by professionals working in the academic and technological academic world with a solid background in analog and digital design but being musicians involved in various professional artistic activities. One of the two founders is Livio Argentini, an Italian designer of analog design since the 1950s. His apparatuses are still in use today in several recording studios in Italy and abroad.
ARREL Audio was founded to complement Livio Argentini’s experience in designing analogue professional systems with the latest digital technologies derived from academic research. The best of future audio technology will be based on analog signal processing but this treatment will increasingly be supported by modern digital technologies. ARREL Audio’s primary goal is to transfer emerging electronic technologies from the world of search to visionary and innovative concept audio products.

Grp Synthesizer strong> is a newly established Italian company that designs and builds high-end analog synthesizers.
Fully assembled by hand, Grp Synthesizer products are the right combination of technology and craftsmanship, worthy of the best tradition of electronic liuteria.
For us it is important to keep the sound and design characteristics constant over time in order to make synthesizer synthesizers unique and to maintain high quality even for future entry level models.
Business philosophy aims to project these commitments into work to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.
Qosmo Modular strong> is a small scale manufacturer of high quality synthesizer modules, based in Rome (Italy). The idea to build synthesizers came to the first time years ago thanks to a first collaboration between a computer engineer and several musicians of the electronic scene in Rome. From initial ideas begin to emerge some demands from the musicians, as embodied in the range of modules offered by Qosmo.
The key concepts are very simple: to have robust and durable modules with features that are inspired by the classic modular synthesizer but with a sound that is fat and full-bodied. Plus, keep everything as simple as possible, but without sacrificing functionality.
The choice of using THT components may seem old-fashioned these days, but this allows to have the maximum reliability in terms of thermal and mechanical stresses. Furthermore we can keep under control the entire manufacturing process, from design to assembly.
Modules are available in eurorack format with a beatiful aluminum panel with silver finish. All the components are high quality and selected from the best brands on the market.
