New Arduino-Based Eurorack Module, Ardurack, Offers 8 Functions

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Cavisynth has introduced the Ardurack – a multifunction Eurorack module, based on an Arduino microcontroller.

The Ardurack offers 8 functions, all centered around pulse/square signal:

  • Trigger by the push of a button (2 to 100ms per impulse).
  • Tap-Tempo trigger (2 to 100ms per impulse).
  • Modulator, a voltage controlled square wave LFO. Frenquency range is fixed between 0,5Hz (2000ms) and 15Hz (65ms).
  • Simple square wave VCO (gated or continuous mode).
  • Complex square wave VCO 1 (gated or continuous mode).
  • Complex square wave VCO 2 (gated or continuous mode).
  • Noise (gated or continuous mode).
  • 440Hz Tuner

Here’s a video demo:

The module is available as a DIY kit or fully assembled. Since the Arduino is open, you can reprogram it with the Arduino environment and an FTDI adapter. You can also add more inputs and/or outputs using the non-exploited I/O on the ProMini board.

The Ardurack module is available in three options: a PCB and panel for €20.00; a full kit for €75.00; or assembled for €110.00.

  1. FYI work is proceeding nicely on my all-analog arduino processor… sourced all the vacuum tubes, started machining the cogs and gears. Right now I’m using my swimming pool as an enclosure, aiming for a 1300-1500 HP module (not including windmill).
