hardware Modular

Just a quick shout out. Yesterday I picked up Malekko's new trigger/cv sequencer, the Varigate 8+. I was expecting to be impressed, but his has taken my head off with its robust feature set.
Definitely one to look out for if you're looking to add something unique to your rig. The per step trigger probabilities, repeats, mutes, cv controllable randomization and reset, and pattern memory are incredible.

"Features include:

8 channels of gates, each with up to 16-steps
2 quantized 1v/oct CV channels
CV channels can be independent or linked to any gate channel
Save up to 100 presets
10 different song banks programmable by choosing any sequence of presets
Programmable scale per bank
Note and Glide per step
Forward, Reverse, Pendulum and Random directions per channel
Probability, Repeat, Delay and Pulsewidth control per channel
Individual clock multiplier, divider and sequence length per channel
Random gate input for applying variation to a pattern
All per step parameters can be randomized within a given range
Program gate channels with both sliders and buttons
Mute function (mute a channel or pattern)
Freeze gate input turns random sequences into static sequences while active
Reset input
Clear function for clearing channels and parameters
Tempo control knob
Clock in and Out"

hey @KenoMaise, thanks for sharing. What's all this noise about modulars? What's the appeal?
