“We’re back at it! We are very happy to announce the release of our latest Kickstarter campaign for the FIELD KIT FX!
TO KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN:
LOOPER, FREQUENCY SHIFTER, DIGITAL DELAY, 4CH MIXER, PHASER, SEQUENCER, ENVELOPE GENERATOR + CV INTERFACE!
EARLY BIRD: 219,- EUR
MRSP: 249,- EUR
We worked on this
KOMA Elektronik has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new Field Kit FX, a “box of wonders for the experimental-minded musician.” It consists of seven “building blocks:” looper and frequency shifter, digital delay, spring reverb, 4-channel VCA mixer, “Roll-O-Decks” with 4-channel sequencer, envelope generator, and a CV interface. … Read More KOMA Elektronik Announces Field Kit FX, CV-Controlled Multi-Effects Processor
Koma today revealed a sequel to their crowd-funded smash hit Field Kit. And it’s a whole bunch of patchable effects, for €249 (€219 for funders).
Inside that box, there’s a load of different effects to play with:
- Frequency Shifter
- Sample Rate Reducer / Bitcrusher
- Digital Delay
- Analog Spring Reverb
Yeah, you read that last one right – there’s actually a physical spring in there for reverb. Behold:
Looping of course means that you could make the FX a hub of performance. And in addition to the other digital effects, that frequency shifter opens up some really interesting possibilities.
So, whereas the first Field Kit depended on you attaching contact mics and working with the mixing functions, the Field Kit FX actually has a lot more sonic possibilities included right out of the box. There’s still a companion book to go with it, and of course this is already intended as a clever
But, for a kind of “weirdo modular effects toolkit” in a case, you also get a bunch of tools for applying these effects, by mixing and sequencing them:
- 4 Channel VCA Mixer
- 4 Step Mini Sequencer
- Envelope Generator
All over the place, you’ve got various patch points. That’s a chance to connect to other analog I/O – which certainly includes Eurorack modulars, but these days a lot of other gear, as well, even desktop units from Novation, Roland, Arturia, KORG, and the like.
And there’s a new 4-Channel CV Interface for bringing it all together, meaning you can come up with pretty elaborate modular connections.
In fact, for under three hundred bucks, the whole thing looks a bit like either a shrunken Eurorack modular or a tabletop of analog and digital effects merged together for patching.
Now, this is still definitely geared for advanced users. There’s no MIDI. And the CV routing, while powerful, might be overwhelming to newcomers – for instance, there’s not a single, simple trigger in to clock that sequencer. (That’s not necessarily a criticism – the various CV options mean loads of creative flexibility. But it does probably mean this box is more for people who want to get deep into patching.)
Watch the overview video, natch:

KOMA Elektronik has introduced the STROM power system for Eurorack modular synthesizers.… Read More KOMA Intros STROM Power System For Eurorack Modular Synthesizers
Okay, first, a power product sounds like about the most boring music tech news ever. But the kids at KOMA have found a way to make modular power exciting.
And of course, because anything involving electricity sounds cooler in German than in English, meet STROM.
First, the video – which turns what seems a dull, technical topic into exciting launch video. Seriously, more fun to watch than that iPhone X announcement (uh, for me, anyway). Let’s let KOMA’s Wouter explain – in a lab coat!
KOMA are embarking on a deep dive into the world of modular Eurorack – which I hear the young folks really love at the moment. First, there was a case system. Now, there’s a power system. And both are nicely affordable.
And since power is what gives you noise, power matters.
I asked KOMA’s Wouter what makes this product different. Answer: “The Strom is cleaner than any of the competition for a way lower price with very low ripple, great safety features with the fusing and the short circuit protection!”
We’ll get some of our modular boffins on this to check.
The other important detail here is not what this is, but who it comes from – KOMA’s engineer Robert has been the lead on all digital products, and did the programming work on the epic, legendary Komplex Sequencer.
Looks like KOMA are on their way to another big market hit. Hope to visit them soon – and their growing Common Ground community space.

“Strom is a strong, reliable and cost effective power solution for the Eurorack modular system. Both Strom and Strom+ modules offer short circuit protection, a replaceable fuse and an ultra low ripple on all rails. The input voltage is 15V DC (we offer a high quality 15V PSU from CINCON in our bundles) and the output to the modules is 1,5A on both +12V
