Kilpatrick Audio K-Format Analog Modular Synth Synthesizer RARE Serge Buchla Synton Modcan BugBrand 2020 Silver

I purchased this modular synthesizer system in 2020 directly from Andrew Kilpatrick in Canada and it cost me $7,010 all together which is a killer price for such a monstrous, powerful and amazing sounding system which is really underrated in my opinion and other engineers I have spoken with have also said so 

At the time I was considering a single Buchla 200e rack (4 modules) and for the 4 specific modules it was going to cost $6,620 and that was not including Pomona brand banana patch cables and the audio cables

I feel that I no doubt made the better choice with the K-Format modular system

I first purchased an initial 8-module 2-rack system then soon fell in love with the system and purchased the additional 4-module single-rack system that perfectly connects to the same powered rack / boat and is powered by an updated single power supply provided to me by Andrew after the new purchase 

The system is quite rare and I believe I have the largest "complete" system out there 

I'm not sure at this point if Andrew will continue building these systems or for how much longer really 

The system includes every single module that is offered for the K-Format modular system including multiples of some of the most important modules 

The system includes 3 Pitch Oscillator modules, these modules are called "Pitch Oscillator" modules but they are truly way much more than that with all analog waveforms available as well as wave shaping, both Linear and Exponential FM capabilities, Low Frequency settings and much more 

It includes 2 Envelope Modulator modules which each include 2 Low Frequency Oscillators with complex features and 2 Attack Decay Envelope Generators with cycling capabilities and plenty of voltage control, so that is 4 of these LFO's and 4 of these Attack Decay EG's, 8 complex Modulation sources all together and that's not including the 3 Oscillator modules and Entropy Sequencer module 

It includes 1 Filter Amp module which is 4 x Low Pass Gates that can function as VCA's, Low Pass VCF's or both  

It includes 1 Dynamic Filter module which sounds amazing and includes a plethora of VCF modes and an added Envelope Follower

It includes 1 Dual Envelope module with 2 full ADSR Envelope Generators with re-trigger functions and plenty of voltage control 

It includes the Entropy Sequencer module which is incredibly deep and complex with all sorts of modes and random voltage generation and modulation etc 

It includes 1 Voltage Processor module which is an amazing utility module with plenty of functionality including Control Voltage mixing and which I used to flawlessly sequence vintage Roland synths with CV and Gate 

It includes a stereo Digital Effects module which is an incredible dual effects processor with 2 separate digital effects sections including Reverbs, Delays, Distortion, Ring Modulation, Sample and Hold and Wave Folding plus more and of course lots of control voltage capabilities 

Finally the system includes the Mixer Interface module which is incredible and includes a proper Midi-CV Converter with full MIDI capabilities and of course a multi channel stereo Mixer with great voltage control capabilities, I would patch bass sounds and anything I could think of and sequence the entire system using my Elektron Digitakt, it's quite amazing sequencing this entire modular system   

These descriptions are just barely scratching the surface, this is an an incredibly deep and powerful modular synthesizer system which again is completely underrated in my opinion, I paired it with the BugBrand 2Frame SynthVoice+ modular synthesizer system and the 2 systems work absolutely flawlessly together and operate on the same technical specs with no converting necessary, together it's an incredible modular synthesizer system, if you are interested in both systems that is also an option 

The person that owns this complete modular synthesizer system will have a deep, professional and amazing sounding synthesizer system 

Only selling cause I am moving and need the funds 

The system is powered by the powered boat that includes the MIDI, Processor, Effects and Sequencer modules and a single power supply 

It is an amazingly designed system and Andrew Kilpatrick is a low key genius

The system is housed in a 12U black wooden rack case that I purchased from Sweetwater but of course the 3 separate boats, power supply and banana patch cables will be shipped safely in a much more convenient and compact package unless you pick up local in which case you can also take the 12U rack case  

Thanks for looking and reading
