    When I first got into modular synths, I was working hard at making a pedal rig out of eurorack modules. It was possible but it wasn't nearly as easy as this is going to be. I ended up giving up that idea (still have a modular though). This stomp box has inputs for 2 expression pedals too.

    There are some ways to get pitch>CV so you can legitimately have your bass become a bass synth. It does come with caveats of proper technique, one note at a time, etc. More than this though, the effects in this format with tons of CV control are really where the interest lies for me.
    Check out Mutable Instruments Cloud, pair it with their Tides modulator…

    I think this is 42hp (hp denotes width, module size is given in hp), so you can get a couple larger modules and a small one or two or 6 or 7 smaller ones - Enough to have a great time.

    What would be cool is if they made a 500 series version as well.

    So, the eurorack unit can be filled with synth modules. Then, the 500 series unit can be filled with compressors and 1500$ Neve preamps. I'm sure it would lead me to get divorced though.

    I've been following this kid for awhile on Youtube. He made a few videos explaining running a guitar through modular syths. Thought I'd post them here for anyone who's interested.





    And this is just him jamming through modular synths:
