At the 2016 NAMM Show, Modal Electronics has introduced four new Eurorack modules.

Here are the details:

002 Voltage Controlled Filter

Modal Electronics designed 24dB per octave four pole transistor ladder filter, with some very unusual morphing characteristics or ‘polesweeping’, enabling transition from four pole through bandpass to one pole 6db per octave, or anywhere in between.

Features:

  • Transistor ladder filter
    2x Audio Inputs with trimmers
  • 3x Control Voltage Ins with attenuverters – FM, Resonance and Slope
  • 1x Audio Out
  • Slope control morphs the filter from four pole 24dB per octave, through band pass to one
  • pole 6dB per octave
  • Transistor saturation Drive control
  • 14HP

Coming Spring 2016

008 Voltage Controlled Filter

Innovative and extremely flexible 15 multi-mode filter, consisting of traditional modes such as low-pass, band-pass and high-pass as well as more unusual notch, phase and combination modes.

Features:

  • 15 multi-mode filter
  • 2x Audio Inputs with trimmers
  • 3x Control Voltage Ins with attenuverters – FM, Resonance and Mode
  • 1x Audio Out
  • 15x filter modes – 1LP, 2LP, 3LP, 4LP, 2N+LP, 2N, 2HP+LP, 3HP+LP, 2BP, 4BP, 3HP, 2HP, 1HP, 3PS and 3PS+LP (LP is low pass, N is notch, BP is band pass, HP is high pass and PS is phase shift)
  • Constant switch to activate a volume compensation algorithm to counteract drops in volume when increasing Resonance, especially useful with some filter modes
  • Drive switch to enable overdrive on the filter
  • 14HP

Coming Spring 2016

002 Numerically Controlled Oscillator

Modal Electronics designed NCO for a very high resolution, and very stable oscillator plus sub oscillator. Over 50 different waveforms, ranging from classic analogue sounds to more unique digital shapes

Features:

  • Numerically controlled oscillator plus sub oscillator
  • 1x 1 volt per octave Input
  • 1x Sync input
  • 2x Control Voltage Ins with attenuverters – FM and Wave
  • 2x Audio Outs – Main oscillator and Sub oscillator
  • 1x OLED display showing current waveform
  • Over 50 different waveforms, ranging from classic analogue sounds to more unique digital shapes
  • When PW is enabled the waveform switches to square and the wave control changes the pulse width
  • Coarse and fine pitch controls with option for linear or exponential detune
  • Low switches the module to act as a Low Frequency Oscillator
  • DeRez enables a down sampling algorithm that adds a good amount of additional high-frequency harmonics, in order to make the sound brighter
  • SubWav switches the sub oscillator from standard square wave to the same waveform as the main oscillator
  • 14HP

Coming Spring 2016

008 Voltage Controlled Oscillator

100% analogue VCO with sub oscillator, providing sawtooth, triangle, square with PWM and noise. Each of the waveforms can be blended together to provide completely new complex wave shapes

Features:

  • Analogue voltage controlled oscillator plus sub oscillator
  • 1x 1 volt per octave Input
  • 1x Sync input
  • 2x Control Voltage Ins with attenuverters – FM and PWM
  • 6x Audio Outs – Each waveform can be brought out individually plus the Mix oscillator (made up from the blend of currently enabled waveforms) and Sub oscillator (square)
  • Waveforms include sawtooth, triangle, square with PWM and noise
  • PW controls the pulse width of the square wave
  • Coarse and fine pitch controls with option for linear or exponential detune
  • Low switches the module to act as a Low Frequency Oscillator
  • 14HP

Coming Spring 2016

  1. First clever design from a Eurorack module with all the insertion points on the bottom row so that the wires do not interfere with control knobs.
