Fantastic - An Essential Part Of My Setup
Richard Hamilton 30.06.2017
I bought Blinds as part of a small starter Eurorack setup to expand on the functionality of a Microbrute. I wanted a module to explore CV manipulation.

The module is clearly laid out and easy to use; the only challenge I've had was getting my head around the bi-polar nature of it. Initially, I used it as 4 VCA's and a mixer, but as I learned more about manipulating waveforms, it's become essential for controlling envelopes and LFO's. I've also played with its ability to ring modulate two audio sources, though, I haven't explored this much.

I'm aware that some people find dialling in the pots to 0 and removing bleed a challenge when using it as a VCA. If you prefer not to do this, then Mutable's Veils may be a better choice; which Thomann also sell. In my small setup, and for the type of music I'm currently making, Blinds is perfect.

Blinds offers versatility that has enabled me to explore what I want out of Eurorack and make choices about subsequent module purchases. It's been described as a subtle work of art, and I couldn't agree more.

Great Quad Polarizer
Feelsy 05.03.2019
Blinds is a really solid quad polarizer. The build quality is great and next to simple applications such as using it as an attenuverter/offset-generator, it sound very clean with audio and handles audio rate modulation very well. The cascading mixer and visual LED feedback are great additional features. The only (minor) downside is it can be difficult to dial the main pots to the zero position to use Blinds as a VCA. Overall, its a great module and I can recommend it highly!

Super praktisches Utility Modul als Mischer, VCA und Ring-Modulator um diesen Preis, da braucht man nicht lange überlegen.

Fort utile et pratique
KingTong 25.11.2017
Utilisation multiple en tant que mixer, atténuateur, inverter, ring modulateur, VCA. A savoir que pour le VCA il assez difficile de régler les potard sur la position 12h qui correspond au volume à 0.
Pour signal audio et CV.
Les gros potards crachotaient un peu lors des premiers essais mais c'est passé après quelques tours de piste.
Peut-être un peu cher et un peu large, mais c'est vraiment histoire de chipoter...

Très satisfait par ce module.
