Curious to know what everyone's favourite brand is.

I personally love the raw and industrial underground sounds of Noise Engineering a lot .

Mutable stuff is thoughtful, stylish and original. Really though I have no brand loyalty; this is my setup www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/688616

I like the ALM range a lot, but their stuff is very digital and I think was always intended to be mixed with analogue stuff from other manufacturers.

I like the Make Noise and Make Noise / Soundhack collaborations. Very smart designs imho. Of course,
I only have personal experience with them so far. :lol:

just as well there are only 10 eurorack manufacturers, or this poll would be problematic.

Just look on ModularGrid sorted by Popular. https://www.modulargrid.net/e/modules/b ... ection=asc

This thread will inevitably become a "List all Eurorack modules" thread.

This is a silly poll. I would need to list at least my favorite ten manufacturers. And half of my favorites are missing. Choosing only one out of those is not going to yield meaningful results.

The poll is about the results between THESE brands, so they're very meaningful :wink:
We just started a store and we sell brands based on popularity and own preference, so it's good to learn and know more about what different kinds of people like.

Curious to hear your favourite brands :)

Same, don't really have brand loyalty when it comes to my setup. Though from your choices I do like Noise engineering, Mutable and Make noise. I have a couple favorite staples from Erica as well.

Checked out your store and seems you guys have a pretty good selection already. :clap: You might want to look into carrying some Intelligel, they have some solid pieces.

Oh, I didn’t realize I was participating in market research for a commercial venture.

No, they're still not meaningful to the potential participants. Why on earth would someone spend time picking from someone else's 'favourites' especially when its not even that, just lazy market research.
