As the year is coming to a close, Electronics Tonestar 8106 is named as the best Eurorack/Modular for the year 2017. Tonestar 8106 is a full synth voice based on a Roland filter, specifically the Jupiter-8/Juno-60 and 106. The Tonestar 8106 shares many similarities with the Tonestar 2600. It’s the same size and layout, with a few little tweaks.
Unlike some stripped-down modules of this kind, the Tonestars are very generous when it comes to envelopes. There are two: one a fully fledged ADSR strip and the ARP design, allowing for a certain flexibility of routing.
