ReBach Musical Electronics CATCH is a series of low-cost Eurorack modules released over the last few months that may have floated under your radar and are now releasing DIY kits.

CATCH

Trying to capture the low-cost end of the Eurorack market is difficult. It’s not so much the competition as the task of producing a good sounding product at a reasonable price. ReBach are having a crack with their CATCH series. They say they are packed with high-level sound and individual character but are simple in design and structure to keep the price down. They started off complete modules for around £95 for the VCO, VCF and ADSR and under £65 for the others and have now started releasing DIY kits for around £60. So yeah, quite reasonable and they’ve got a rather striking look going on.

Their first DIY release is the VCF-A.

Followed by the VCO-A.

And there should be more to come.

Range

There are currently 9 modules available covering all the usual functions so that you can build a working modular system.

VCO-A: CEM3340 based oscillator with saw, triangle and pulse waveforms, pulse width modulation and FM.

VCF-A: 12dB/Oct 2-pole lowpass filter with self-oscillation and CV control over resonance and cutoff.

ADSR-A: CEM3310 based 4-stage envelope with a useful second output.

VCA-AB: 2 channel VCA with unipolar linear response.

NOISE: Noise generator with vactrol controlled colour.

STV: S-trigger converter.

SMP: Passive mult.

LFO-B: Triangle and Pulse output LFO with some cross-modulation.

ATN-A: Attenuator.

Value

It’s a decent range of modules. The fact that you can build a modular Eurorack synth voice for under £500 is pretty good. Looking forward to more kits.

Would be great if they offered just the completed circuit board so people could build them into 5U modules!
