Protostar coming soon! Posted on 19 Apr 09:06

I am currently taking a break from working on the page for the Protostar in order to make this post.  It's coming soon, very soon.  SO soon in fact that I thought it was necessary to make this post.  

Pedalsandeffects.com just released a video we shot with them at NAMM going through the Protostar in depth with Nick and Juan.  The video says it all, and we can't wait to get this pedals into your hands!

WMD Test Lab Performance #1 Posted on 01 Mar 09:59

In this video, our own Tyler Thompson (performs as T2) gives a performance using solely eurorack modular gear.  The main modules he includes are the Bastl Knit Rider, WMD Synchrodyne, HexInverter Mutants, and a couple unreleased WMD products, the Aperture and Performance Mixer.

The idea of these new videos are to put new and old products alike through the paces and use them in a live, improvised setting.  Tyler improvised the patch from scratch and the performance is one take and recorded live.  After the performance, we talk briefly about the modules he used, and the ideas he had for and during the performance.  How the ideas changed throughout the performance, and what inspired him to come up with the patch.

We had a blast shooting the video and are stoked on the way it came out.  We've been working really hard to get these new modules out to the public but before we do, we must test the products in the same situation we hope to see them used in.  We figured, while we test them, why not shoot a video?

Below is the result of our test.  Many more to come.


The Neutron Sound Orgone Accumulator is one bad ass piece of kit. Posted on 19 Feb 10:46

WMD recently had the pleasure of working with Jim Matheson of Neutron sound to bring his popular DIY oscillator, the Orgone Accumulator to the retail module market.  We helped with the development and manufacturing of the Orgone and are so excited that it is finally out to the public.

Below is a video we made out of 30 minutes of footage. It is Tyler and Alex just sweeping through the sounds and timbres created by tweaking the knobs on the Orgone.

All tech aside, the purpose of this video is to get the SOUND of the Orgone Accumulator out to the world.  Take a seat, and listen.
