Did you invest in the noise engeering modules when they were on sale?
Tis another massive rabbit hole for you to go down some day. I think they're one of the best things in reason.

I remember when I first looked at them (when they came out) I liked them however at that time I was playing with VCV rack a lot, then when VCV said they won't support the bridge anymore I moved over to VM and during the sales last year I looked at the noise engineering bundle again however decided to get Voltage Core + Drums as it was a lot cheaper than the noise engineering bundle (they were both on sale) and of course the VC+drums offered a lot more.

and while im here i have a question :

i am confused how to get the ModPanel8 to make a 16 Voice polyphonic synth.

Do i have to connect 2 ModPanels for that ?

My question comes from the back of the ModPanel8, where at the upper right, where the "poly" cv jacks are, you can decide how many voices you want and go up to 16 !? O.o

Poly CV works up to sixteen voices however I can't think of a breakout box that will do 16 ports.
So the only quick option is to add 2 Hamu's to a Combinator and put them in their own zones.
