Video: Why Buy a Full Eurorack System?

One of the main draws of Eurorack systems is their modularity. Users love the freedom of being able to construct a fully customized synthesis experience, packed with hand-picked modules from a variety of brands and product lines. It's everything you want and nothing you don't. But there are drawbacks here, too.

Buying individual modules with which to construct a full system usually takes a bit of guess and check. Modules don't always work together in the ways that you're hoping or assuming they will, especially when you're mixing brands. And if you're brand new to Eurorack, it can be even more of a challenge to figure out exactly what you think you might want or need module-wise to begin with.

So, what should you do? You should buy a complete Eurorack system, of course. While "Eurorack" and "modular" are practically synonymous, a variety of the best Eurorack brands do offer fully complete systems out of the box. While the up-front cost can be off-putting, the benefits abound.

First, you get a full Eurorack system in one purchase—no need to pick up and swap out modules piecemeal until you can put something complete together. And not only are all of these modules guaranteed to work together seamlessly, they were also designed specifically to complement one another. When you buy a complete Eurorack system out of the box, you're getting that brand's complete vision for what Eurorack can be—and sometimes, that also includes modules that simply aren't sold separately.

In the video above, Fess takes us through ALM's Busy Circuits System Coupe, which is the brand's first complete Eurorack system offering, and is a great demonstration of what you can accomplish when you go this route.
