A valuable addition to modular rig

08.03.2017
This unit is really superb, probably moreso as a quick and convenient way of taking external signals into the modular world.

Being able to turn audio to gate signal is so useful and with the gain control, its really easy to adapt to whatever the source is.

The built in contact microphone is also incredibly useful, particularly when paired with their RINGS module, for getting odd, scratchy bell and bowing sounds.

Great build, nice and small, lovely finish on the panel.

Mutable Instruments are keeping it interesting.

Lots of fun in 4hp.

Richard Hamilton, 16.07.2017
I bought Ears so that I could bring an Arturia Microbrute's signals up to modular levels, which it does very well. I initially considered a Doepfer A-119, which is cheaper, but the contact microphone looked like fun, so I spent a little extra on this.

For only 4hp there's a lot packed into a small space. I've made good use of the gate that is generated by the incoming audio, but the envelope follower is something I've not explored much yet

Overall, the module sounds good, looks good, and I'd recommend it to anybody needing an input module.
