1U Module Wishlist Poll

Since the 1U Module Wishlist thread has gotten so long, I thought it would be more useful to present things as a single poll. I went through the whole thread and tried to get everything in here while leaving out anything redundant. There were quite a few variations on themes, mixers especially! There was over 60 suggestions in the list, so thanks to everyone who contributed! It was also fun to see the things that were requested that have now been released, such as Zeroscope, Duatt, FSR, Stereo Outs, and of course the Dual VCA.

Unfortunately the poll will only allow 20 options so I had to trim things down. I’ll put the full list below.

So what 1U modules are you most keen to see in the future?

  • Switch/Toggle/Mute
  • Clock Source/Divider
  • Effects (Ring Mod/Delay/Chorus)
  • Single Channel Function Generator (Quadrax Style)
  • 2 x 2:1 mixer
  • 2 x 3 Passive Mult
  • “Playable” Logic
  • Mixup Style Mixer
  • Stereo Crossfader
  • 3-Band EQ
  • Low Pass Gate
  • Stereo compressor
  • 4-step CV sequencer
  • Gate-able Slew Limiter
  • Microphone XLR input
  • USB/SD Card Stereo Recorder
  • Footswitch Interface
  • Precision Adder
  • Octave switcher
  • CV Recorder

Lots of good ideas in the poll, but I only voted for the one I need the most.

BTW, CV-controlled panner isn’t listed. Does this mean you’re already working on it?

Please include an external STEREO input on the Mixup 1U if you make one. I think especially for the Palette cases it would be useful, as they are often used with other gear.

If you guys ever do a small stereo wav recorder, having a clock input and recording a low quality click track of that clock would provide useful for syncing later in daw

Also maybe have it always recording the last 30 seconds as a buffer and writing over itself until you press record, in that case you save that appended 30 second buffer to the beginning of your recording.(similar to dash cam security cameras) so you never accidentally miss a sick moment by pressing record too late. This prevents you from having to record 4 hour sessions and sifting through to find the “wow” moments

Strange precision adder and octave switcher are separate options. Those could be combined into a single module that is capable of both functions.

Great call @ScottMFR for getting this poll going! Good to have an overview of most of the brainstorms in that mega-thread.

Cheers and Happy New Year everyone!

  • Delay
  • Distortion
  • uMIDI that supports drum triggers

I’m surprised Multi FX is so far down on the votes…I thought that would be really useful to make a small system shine!

Polyphonic MIDI!

So many good ideas i trimmed my selections down to what i think is ‘needed’ first (for me basic utilities feature sets should be finalized in the 1u)

I definitely want a lfo over a function generator but this poll is exciting. The top 4 are great. I’m surprised the limited edition trend hasn’t come to the 1U format.
