Quick Tip XII : Multifunctional 2HP Blindplate

Picture via @cymatics
 "...don't stir your teas and coffees with cheap, thin-feeling plastic swizzle sticks, for a truly analog stirring experience, impart the rich, metallic notes of a Doepfer 2hp blanking panel to your brew..."

Instead of using those cheap throw-away plastic coffee (or tea) swizzle sticks you can also use a simple 2HP blind-plate to stir your favorite drink of course...

It is a relatively environmental-friendly option too, because you can use it over and over again...
Just a quick wipe and it is clean again and ready for re-use.

Happy April 1st!


  1. Very cool - but I do feel that there's room for improvement. For example, I've tried this with the 4HP blind-plates and found that the coffee was stirred twice as quickly! On the other hand, using the entire A-110 VCO module broke the cup...

  2. Hi, this is a great idea, however at this point I am unable to afford to build a modular synth, is there some way I could replicate this with a good quality software alternative?
