Future Sound Systems MTX9 now in stock in both PASSIVE and ACTIVE versions… plus lot of other FSS gear including OSC2, VAC1, MAKROW & the entire GRISTLEIZER range

Future Sound Systems Matttech Modular 21.01.22

It’s hard to keep on top of the myriad of products available these days, but some of the more interesting designs emit from the darkened rooms of Bristol’s Future Sound Systems. Their MTX9 PIN MATRIX has proved a popular choice for folk who want to add some Synthi-style pin matrix patching to their systems – and we’ve had so many people asking to purchase the active buffer upgrade board that we’ve decided to stock the pre-assembled active version of the module (the MTX9A) alongside the passive one. This adds unity mixing and buffered splitting for more precise voltage distribution.

We are also aiming to keep many of their other designs in stock again, especially the popular GRISTLEIZER modules – a range designed in collaboration with Chris Carter from Throbbing Gristle, and based on a unit they used extensively on both their live and recorded output.

Other highlights from our FSS range include:

  • The intensely patchable OSC2 “Recombination Engine” – a triple analogue voltage-controlled oscillator Eurorack module with a focus on a novel wave-splicing technique.
  • MAKROW – developed with Daniel Miller of MUTE Records – is a modular patch macro-controller, designed with live performance in mind. It allows for dramatic control sweeps & massive sounding patch changes, all at the turn of a single knob.
  • POCA VAC1 – a completely passive quad Lowpass Gate module, with selectable VCA mode
  • …and if it’s a space-efficient, low cost 4 channel mixer in 4hp you’re after…the MX1 has you covered!
