A Lego drum machine.
Muschbit, 03.08.2021
It's a very good instrument and has its own character.
The overall sound is quite "metallic" to my hear and I like that. The way one can mix the regularity from sequencing via midi or CV with the chaotic/jazzy spirit of the instrument.

Pulsar lives from 0 to 10V.
It can be trigger by the drum gate of the keystep pro is you set them to 12V and then through one of the atenuator or the MIDI learn pins. (which is good then you don't lose the modular aspect).

I controled it also via MIDI using the Novation Circuit. and it works perfectly.
I haven't tried to trigger it via an eurorack sequencer.

I like how one can create a chaotic beat which still has some structure.
This instrument is not limited to chaotic drum and polyrytmic stuff.

Cons:
_crocodiles clip are not as fun to use as eurorack cables.
_has only 4 voices.

Pros:
_the sound character (pulsar has personality in the way it sounds).
_inspiring workflow.
_kick asses :)

It's the most expensive gear I bought so far. But I love it.
