QMMG – Recreating a Legend
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been intrigued by the QMMG for a long time. It’s not discontinued, and yet it can’t be manufactured. If you manage to find one ‘second hand’, they get priceless as the serial numbers get lower. But why? Isn’t it just a four channel low pass gate, with simple built in filters and clever normalizations? My friend Julian Peuker from the FB MakeNoise User Group allowed me to experiment with his QMMG for a few weeks, allowing me to create this video. Much, much appreciated!
I wanted to find out how special it is, and how easy or difficult it is to recreate its sound with ‘normal’ modules and less expensive discontinued ones like the single MMG. I loved making this video a lot and I also learned a lot. I still want a QMMG and I’ll definitely get one when the opportunity arises and the price is realistic. So this is probably never going to happen. However, I know now that – honestly – a modern Shared System doesn’t need one. It eases the mind…
