Do you feel trapped by your relationship to modular? Are you tumbling down the rabbit hole of Eurorack with no way of escape? Commodity Fetishism will set you free with the flick of a switch.
An unusual solution to modular’s problem of addiction, bankruptcy and plummeting mental health – you’ve got to let it all go. Flick the switch and it’s all gone. You might even start a small fire.
Commodity Fetishism shorts the +12, -12, and GND pins of your Eurorack system’s power supply. When you flick the switch these elements are brought together resulting in, at the very least, the destruction of your power supply but it will probably damage or obliterate most of your modules as well. The extent of the carnage depends on a number of factors so module designers Wildfire Laboratories can’t guarantee its absolute effectiveness but rest assured that this will be bad for you and your system.
Commodity Fetishism suggests that it’s time to end your relationship with Eurorack and that modular synths are just things and not something to get attached to.
Wildfire Laboratories bear no responsibility for what happens when you use this module and it’s only sold under the condition that you as the buyer are fully aware of its function and the likely outcome. The module is rated up to 126v at 6 amps which is more than enough for any system.
The module costs $50 and may take a week to deliver although they say they are only shipping within the US at the moment due to postage costs. That sounds like a hurdle that can be gotten over with enough cash.
I’m more than happy to review this module if someone can also supply a Eurorack system in need of defetishising.
