Synthetic Sound Labs‘ Doug Slocum got his start in the synth business in the ’70s when he became known for his “enhanced” (i.e. modded) Moog synths. He recently launched a Eurorack line with a very personal “SteamPunk” graphic approach.

Although departing from the SteamPunk panel designs, his latest module SSL 2520 Segwencer is an ambitious, 4 channel scanner module that borrows some ideas from the way pipe organs work, creating an entirely new way of morphing sounds, textures and even control voltages. The four channels have separate ins and outs, and their signals can be modulated, blended or also sequenced in new creative ways. He also makes a full line of Moog Unit (MU) sized modules.
