With the A-180-9 modules, it is possible to connect two modular systems. Up to 14 signals can be exchanged. Standard RJ45 network cables are used as multicore lines. The whole idea may sound weird at first, but is actually quite useful. For example, you can travel to a gig with two pre-patched cases and just plug in the network cables on stage. If you’ve forgotten the multicore lines, it’s not a tragedy. – Where can’t you find a RJ45 cable these days?
The A-180-9 is a passive module featuring two network connectors and a total of 14 patch points. The upper RJ45 port is wired to socket 1 to 8. The lower port is wired to socket A to F. Similar to a passive multiple module, it doesn’t matter which patch points you choose to be inputs or outputs. Audio material, control voltages, clock signals and so on can be sent back and forth as desired.
WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
