E340 Cloud Generator by Synthesis Technology

As I continue my exploratory journey through the Eurorack universe I am constantly surprised by the many eccentric modules available, even with my prior Buchla/Serge experience. The Cloud Generator is just such a module. Though visually it looks like nothing special at first glance, the 8 oscillators contained within, along with CHAOS, FM, SYNCH, SPREAD and CHAOS BW controls offer a sonic underworld filled with everything from warm bass to stormy ambience, from clanky metal tones to what Synthesis Technology calls a "swarm of bees" effect.

I was immediately surprised by the Cloud Generator as I put it through its paces, making it a worthy addition to my evolving system. Sounds to come...
