Endorphin.es Milky Way 1U
Milky Way 1U by Endorphin.es offers the wonderful stereo effects found in the original repackaged for the Intellijel 1U format. Designed with control in mind, make the most of the 16 included effects with voltage controllable parameters and a VCA for leveling and shaping. Cabin pressure and cabin fever control the general level, dry/wet, and effect parameters while the type and tap buttons offer effect cycling and optional modes depending on the combination of presses. Additional features such as effects scanning and crossfade + panning controls for the input makes Milky Way 1U utterly desirable for those in need of a wide and morphable sound palette.
The Milky Way's 1U layout replicates all the same jacks, knobs, and buttons in a reorganized layout to maximize performance and minimize patch clutter. Included on the back of the module is a mix output that can be daisy chained to other 1U modules or sent directly to the Intellijel stereo balanced outputs via jumper cables. Whether you're looking to add dimension and grit or flutters and tails, Milk Way 1U will surely bring depth to your Eurorack system.

For our effects, we turned to the Data Bender by Qu-Bit Electronix for glitchy, digital artifacts, the expansive Milky Way from Endorphines for general purpose effects like delays and reverbs, and the crushing Guillotine distortion from Ritual Electronics. We’ve also got a Bastl Cinnamon for filtering and additional drive, and the Katowice by XAOC Devices supplies crossover filtering and multi band isolation for situations where surgical sound shaping is needed. External sounds enter the system through a pair of Mutable Instruments Ears modules, but we can also take advantage of their built-in contact mics for generating and processing sounds fully within the system itself.
The Harlequin’s Context is a preset programmer for generating linked sets of control voltage sources. Each of the four channels can be set up as an LFO, envelope generator, and more, and the configurations of all four are stored together in scenes, which can be accessed manually with buttons on the front panel or sequenced and scanned through for ever-changing modulation in your patches. When paired with a traditional modulator like ALM’s Pip Slope, any system (especially one loaded up with all kinds of effects like this one) can come alive in compelling ways.
Godspeed+ is an oscillator with built-in wave folder and self-modulation options, bringing some of the greatest sounds of the Furthrrrr Generator into a 6hp footprint. Squawk Dirty is a stereo digital filter with algorithms borrowed from the Grand Terminal. Airstreamer provides envelope generation, LFOs, and more, while the Milky Way offers voltage-controllable stereo effects, including delays, reverbs, and more.
All housed in a 4MS Pod case, this system proves that a small modular system is fully capable of huge sounds.
