"This is my favourite module: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcKuX3dMKLI&t=5304s It's a beautiful, beautiful thing that I've been after for a long time.Robin Vincent, Molten Modular

"My favourite sequencer that I've come across! " Aaron Ward, Maven Fiction

"I’m mind blown by the beauty of your response, thank you so much for all the information. Amazing to see a company with such positive attitude in their products and their approach."  G.S., Italy

"Awesome work guys! Just sold my XXXX! 😉 Thanks for putting this much effort into this module! ❤️" M.V., Berlin, Germany

"I am really excited to explore your module. I have a XXXX which I really like, but truth be told...the SIG is what I was hoping the XXXX would be." D.D., Connecticut, USA

"The XXXX was my favourite module, then I got the SIG, and sold my XXXX. [Although] XXXX has some CV assignments, I rarely used them: it’s more fun to play SIG live. SIG has more features but if you’re a huge stochastic fan, I could easily see you owning both." L.B., online

"I discovered SIG from a video of Robin Vincent's Molten Modular. I listened to demos and came to the conclusion that I would really like to have a SIG in my system. I have already played a little with stochastic plugins, but they are toys compared to SIG. The XXXX is fine, but can not compare, and is way more pricey and hp hungry." Y.LV., Paris, France

""It's excellent––really more than I had anticipated... The nature of the kind of sequences you get out are completely different to the XXXX [SIG offers] much more dynamic and interesting rhythms because the [durations] can speed up and slow down within the pattern." Rack Addicts Review, Ep 73, P.M., Surry, UK

"XXXX vs SIG Stochastic melody generator? SIG 100% Nothing comes even close! It's the bees knees, incredible!!!" F.T., online

"You’ve created something truly inspirational here. I’m still wrapping my head around everything it can do, but I’m blown away so far. I’ve gotten some amazing results so far, and there’s so much more to dig into. Suffice to say, somehow you guys have made Rings into Clouds sound cool again 😂" D.D., Washington DC, USA

"If XXXX is a road legal sports car then think SIG is a Mad Max v8 Interceptor! Even [just the] one track [Main Unit] does a lot more and seems a lot more powerful. SIG feels like the White Whale module I wanted since I became interested in modular while the XXXX was surprisingly underwhelming." Z.V., Massachusetts, USA

"I was awake way too long last night playing with this module! Incredibly happy that it can take a swinging  clock. XXXX I have found does not. Really liking SIG and really glad that I got the expander! S.N., Albuquerque, USA

"The single channel SIG becomes a four channel powerhouse with the expander. It's a world of inspiration." R.S., Alabama, USA

"If you are getting one definitely get the Expander too. I was just going to pick up the SIG but Phin advised me otherwise, and he was right. This gives you four completely independent channels of aleatoric joy." N.J., Cornwall, UK

"Love the SIG. Had mine for a couple of months. Didn't buy the Expander at first but it took about 2 minutes of using SIG to realise I needed the expander so ORDER BOTH! 🙂" P.S., Karlstad, Sweden

My God! What a machine! I bought the XXXX last year when I knew your module was delayed, but yours is on a different level. I'm absolutely delighted with it. Only 30 minutes into it and it's already really blown me away: it's really intuitive, an absolute blast to use, and I love that you can keep a pattern going while you set up another and switch between the two using the mute buttons, that's neat. An absolutely amazing module that is superb straight out of the box. Incredibly intuitive and musical. If anyone wants an immaculate, boxed XXXX now going spare in the UK... Thanks again, I knew it would be worth the wait." A.O., East Lothian, Scotland

"What a great module, I'm so glad I didn't pass on it! [I had] achieved some sort of stochastic performance tool using XXXX but after looking at SIG, reading through the manual and getting these support emails from you, I wanted it. Thanks for taking the time to contact your customer base like that. It goes a long way. Nothing comes close in immediacy in the modular sequencer world. I'm still wrapping my head around all it can do and how to do it: your solution is very elegant. This module is staying in my case forever." JM.D., Montreal, Canada

"SIG is a lot more steerable than XXXX I’ve spent hours just nudging its values to move the shapes and colours around. It’s a very interesting, almost meditative way to work. Something I want to explore in more depth." M.H., Cornwall, UK

"This is just a clock input to SIG, no other modulation sources?! AMAZINGLY impressive!" C.O., Online

“The SIG is an important tool for me, because I have severe arthritis in my hands.  The SIG generates sequences that are simple and straight forward to set up and modify and brings back the joy of creation. Thank you for building and refining the ultimate inspiration generator: it’s playable and creative, is clearly superior to XXXX  [and] I know this device will be a hit.” E.P., Washington D.C., USA

"I am LOVING it. And I appreciate the care and thought that clearly went in to seeing this design through. When it was first announced I was very excited to see a module approaching the concept that initially drew me to the format - a musical and organic collaboration with the machine, where both hardware and performer are making decisions independently that lead to a coherent whole. The module to me perfectly captures the soul of what the format can and should be about, couldn't be happier!" P.R., California, USA

"It's a trip! Absolutely exhilarating. What an ergonomic interface! My SIG journey [has brought] a renewed sense of wonder, creation, and especially, inspiration!" J.B., Indiana, USA

"The one package I waited for since 2019! I’ve been soooo looking forward to testing this fantastic module. Thank you so much for the amazing support and excellent service. It’s in my rack, and it plays beautifully: a really inspiring sequencer. I use to sequence a lot with XXXX before, but this takes random to another level, both control and random. I used to let XXXX just run in chaos until I find something, and then build upon that but with SIG I I can jump back and forth from my looped sequence, and have control on the randomisation. It doesn’t hurt that I have 4 channels of it either! Luv it. Feels like Christmas!" H.J., Skåne, Sweden

"I couldn’t take my hands off of it all weekend. So much fun. It’s really a great piece of gear [and] feels very natural to play with it. I have just sold my XXXX." E.N. Bristol, UK

"Ohoo!! Just plugged it in and must say s**t-hell-f**k-yeah:-) Moog Mother and some sampler and already plays itself! I´m stupid with modern technology and it's been long pain to find an intuitive sequencer. XXXX is good but SIG is far better. This is not a compliment, just pure truth! Last time I was this excited was Morphagene: tonight again :-) Best thing is I don't have to read any manual and remember hidden functions. Just look at it and play. Super. I must thank you very very much for reminding me of my old wish list. Listen to how fantastically SIG holds the upper octaves and then jumps back low. So SI you are the gods :-) I had 4 hours of continuous soundflow and hit record to let you know what you have done. I turned knobs and the result is just fantastic!! I have a super weapon in my arsenal, so all the world's ambient gurus be careful!!! I´m a very proud and happy serial number 0001 owner :-) Going to have another beer and will tweak till morning... Great new innovative ideas!" A.K., Tallin, Estonia

"I have the SIG and [am] loving it. [Compared to the] XXXX I really don't feel I'm missing out by not having CV in and really don't find it necessary. With the expander SIG gives you four channels to control four voices. It’s pretty essential! So the fact that it's four channels of gate/CV is a much bigger deal and more valuable IMO. Got it racked up and had my first evening with it: figured out most functions without even needing the manual! Normally I'm not a fan of multifunctional knobs/faders but it works out fine in this case. The concept of this module is just so perfect for me. I love generative/probabilistic/random generated patterns, and already have Mutable Marbles and Turing Machine: this complements them nicely as its a totally different approach. It's a lot of fun! I can tell it's a keeper and I will get along great with it. Been at the heart of every patch since I got it. The most fun module I own? The Stochastic Inspiration Generator no doubt." B.L., Wisconsin, USA

"Just wonderful, putting it through its paces right now. I am VERY impressed." R.H., Toronto, Canada

"I hadn't figured I'd use the loop function much but I love it: I hadn't realized that each channel (I have the expander too) can loop independently and loops can be restarted from memory meaning they can be used as 'parts' to ground things if they're getting too nebulous. Loop length (or rather start and end points) have a visual representation of state using the front panel LEDs...so being able to visualize the [loop]  makes playing around with it a real pleasure. I've been messing with one captured loop on one channel for an hour now and expect to be here for another one at least. And capturing the portamento too makes it more of a riff loop than a simple melody loop. Really great. I also love the way that is laid out and have memorized the combos I care most about already because of the presentation." A.A., Boston, USA

"You've created the coolest module in the World!" D.S., Florence, Italy

"Just one minute after plugging in, I re-patched my working patch quickly, no manual, and already great result, wow! The SIG will be at the start/front of a lot of patches: I am planning already something from scratch, multiple channels, all sliders at zero, and give it a go, recording it live! So much fun, easy to start with, but it can go deep, so never a dull moment soon here! 😁 It's really a  inspiration, the best buy in a long time, totally worth the wait: the SIG was a turning point, it made my rig come alive!" W.W., Hoofddorp, Netherlands

"Absolutely fabulous! I have wanted one of these for at least two years, and I'm glad to get my hands on one. It works in a way that is very intuitive for my way of thinking." C.J., Washington, USA

"The SIG really is amazing. It’s much more playful than I had expected and does so much more than I imagined. All the functions are very easy to get to and  are a joy to use. Secondary durations are AWESOME!! It’s so pretty and the knobs, though small, are very solid and have a lovely feel when you turn them. You have implemented it wonderfully. I love it!" D.A., Cambridge, UK

"Love everything about this module." M.R., Online

"It's in the rack and straight away came up with some amazing things on the fly which blew me away today! Gave me all sorts of possibilities once I can slightly tame the beast! The storage function so it powers back up with last settings is the best! After hours of noodling the last thing you want is to start again from scratch! Definitely the missing link: sent me further down the rabbit hole. An awesome bit of kit." M.S., Cornwall, UK

"Such an intuitive way of sculpting random musical patterns. Straight into the rig and always used!" A.R., London, UK

"SIG is absolutely amazing and I haven't even tried the loop function yet...! I have it free-running with 2 acid voices and a Syncussion voice clone alongside some 606 beats - pure bliss :)  SIG is so much deeper than you'd suspect from the panel... But if you're like me and don't like learning curves there is still plenty of fun and creativity to be had without diving too deep." S.vL., Turnhout, Belguim

"We’ve just finished recording an album, and this will take centre stage on the next." S.M., Bristol, UK

"[SIG] is super fast to set up, the panel layout is great for spacing and hands on, and it spits out a terrific variety of melody lines. Channel 4 on the expander is hardwired to my Roland MC-202 and it's an instant IDM/nostalgic acid lines machine...[and] I'm sure that I've explored only a little of the module itself, so I can expect nothing more that more goodness. Loving it, really!!"  E.P., Grassina, Italy

"The Stochastic Inspiration Generator seems to me to be one of the most fascinating and exciting electronic instruments I have discovered, [and] has become for me the most 'warm' and friendly in my modular. Like the instrument makers of the past, please continue to feel the spirit of the times and create the tools that will allow the expression of contemporary sensibilities! " P.D., Nampty, France

"This module is bananas! 🍌 🍌🍌 I knew I had to have one as soon as I saw it. Deep but intuitive. The SIG has [already] become an integral part of my workflow [and I'm so far] not even scratching the surface... Awesome module! " D.J., Virginia, USA

"Outstanding communication and service, and a really well thought out and designed first module. I’ll be watching this space with much interest." L.D., Sydney, Australia

"I really like your approach - it seems that the SIG is the perfect entry of music theory into the modular world. I always felt that with a module that allows us to bring music theory into modular synth, would get into another dimension. Fixed sequences and complete randomness are boring so I am really glad that someone with a strong musical background brought something new to the table! A great module...I’m really looking forward to play with it!" C.P., France

"So much fun and possibilities.  This is just what I needed to open the door on my system to new notions and inspiration.  BIG THANK YOU!" M.O., New York, USA

"Having tons of fun and loving my SIG & Expander. It’s what I’ve been looking for in a random module. It has so much potential for improvisation [and] outputting from all 4 CV’s and TrEG’s to my racks [is giving] me endless ideas. It’s really playable as an instrument/conductor once you have some of the basic understanding of the module and I have to say this is the first module I can say this for. Thanks again for creating...a great musical instrument." G.d P., Rhode Island, USA

"Loving it. I have been recommending it to all my Eurorack friends. What a great module! Kudos!" K.J.M., Minnesota, USA

"I can only confirm what other people say. It’s just wonderful! I’ve emptied my rack to reconfigure it with the SIG as one of the main modules. As for now I’ve only got Rings and Plaits installed and this alone will give me hours to play. Thank you for making this come true." P.W., Gouda, Netherlands

"SIG + Expander have been thriving in my case for a while now. What fun! Really, really useful features and design." M.L., Copenhagen, Denmark

"The module looks excellent, it's even nicer than in pics and I know that it will be a source of inspiration in my studio. I'm super happy with it and I want to thank you for all the support and responsiveness that you have shown. This will sell like hotcakes! Thank you very much!" M.M.B., Madrid, Spain 

"An optimal person/machine/environment relation. For a novice, all of this is an aide, for the expert composer, a collaborator." T.T., Virginia, U.S.

"Thanks Phin! My SIG+EXP has indeed found its new home in my case. Reading the manual and practicing my chords and triads to make best use of it! I am really excited about this module. It is a real beast. Thanks again!" J.J., Oregon, USA

"What manner of sorcery is this?!" M.A.G., Online

"I've experimented with a number of different ways to use randomness and probability in Eurorack since taking that initial jump down the rabbit hole, and I can say that none of the methods I've ventured into have been this promising from the get-go. So I really appreciate your kindness and help in procuring this. I love it and I am looking forward to making all kinds of weird and wonderful music with it!" C.H., Nevada, USA

"The bee's knees for generative sequencing." J.S., Seattle, USA

"What an utterly brilliant module (and thanks for convincing me that I needed the expander!). It's going to take months to fully explore it in depth! An incredible happy accident machine, with a completely different way of working. I mainly build generative patches in software but in hardware I want to constantly be interacting with the modular and SIG just fits that bill perfectly as one enters into a dialectic with it where you can only suggest to it what you want it to do. That bidirectional interaction is the essence of modular synthesis for me. It is a wonderful device. Game changer for me. It's a module where the real joy comes from playing it. Phin is a star." N.J., Widemouth, UK

"[Only] about 1/2 hour into it and can see that this module is going to be a lot of fun. Jarre-esque polyrhythmic sequencing is both immediate and inspirational." D.P., Washington, USA

"I received it two weeks ago, one day before I had a gig. I used it extensively on the second half of my set without reading the manual!" R.V., Utrecht, Netherlands

"Definitely the most interesting sequencer I’ve ever used. It’s all I’d hoped for and way more. The expander is superb…4 channels is amazingly flexible." M.C.Y., Northumberland, UK

"This module has one of the best UI designs I’ve ever seen. The secondary and tertiary modes both use the same 5 knobs, labeled with the first letter of their function (for both modes, same letter, different word). In my first couple of hours I’ve already found (as S.I. emphasise) that this is a really jammable module. In addition to the many parameters that are more global, you can do some edits on specific musical notes, so for example, every C only could be set more likely to be an octave down and every E more likely to have a lower volume. It definitely helps to have just a basic understanding of scales and keys...or not! You can also just move the sliders until it sounds good. You can actually play this thing almost like you would a keyboard, but instead you push up the slider for any note. This module has a very definite design philosophy. Love it! I know you’ve said it over and over, but this is a module that you actually playI" P.G., Albuquerque, USA

"Love it. Very intuitive and simply playful." Y.L., Enschede, Netherlands

"I'm a big fan of René and I was looking for something as creative and playable and here you brought it with the SIG! Indeed I understand now your live instrument approach, therefore the no need for CV inputs. [And] about the Expander: what a great addition! Four SIGs! The instrument gives directly results that just your ear will decide over music theory! I also didn’t know when I ordered SIG that it had internal envelopes! What a great idea and great musical possibilities! A nice sort of plucky vactrol sound! And the looping function is fantastic: the fact that you can travel in the loop, make it different length compare to the other tracks it all open some many possibilities and variations. SIG is an intuitive riffs creator! Thanks again for the SIG, a great instrument!" I.P., Arquennes, Belguim

"Got [my SIG] last week with the expander and I’m having a blast so far. I’m really enjoying myself, it’s made my whole set up more fun to jam to with. Well done Phin!!! For anyone on the fence, SIG (Stochastic Inspiration Generator) is incredibly fun. I dare say it’s the cause of the biggest leap in enjoyment in my case in comparing any of my other modules. Also worth noting that the module made it from Plymouth UK to Minnesota, USA faster than most of the stuff I order from California-based shops." M.R., Minnesota, USA

"I enjoy it very much: [with] the Ground Control [it's] my main sequencer." P.A., Antwerp, Belgium

"This module is insane. Pure genius!" A.A., Berlin, Germany
