Mannequins W/ An Audio ‘History Navigator’ For Eurorack Modular Synthesizers

The Mannequins W/ is a new ‘History Navigator’ for Eurorack modular synthesizers.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

W/ contains over 8? ?hours of sound history–a medium awaiting performers’ input as sound recordings, and sculptural manipulations thereof. Considered as a traditional tape system?, ?sounds can be played forward and back, at fixed speeds, or with continuous through-zero momentum.

Audio loops can be freely joined while in motion, along with voltage-controlled sound-on-sound recording capacity. Beyond simple looppoints, these locations are stored in the history, providing ‘cues’ for navigation through time. These cues become the editable locations for volt-per-octave sampler behaviour. VC-cue navigation allows structured sample-selection.

Think endless sketchbook, not archival tool; the interface focuses on muscle-memory & cheat-code combos. Rich lighting feedback and menu-less operation keep the learning curve shallow, enabling any performer to multiply their system with W/.

  1. reeally interesting module! seems great!
    but who thought its a good idea to add that last minute of the video?! absolutely horrible earpiercing!!! at leadt but a damn limiter or warning… i think i got a tinnitus now!! ah the peoples…!

  2. Interesting but I find the name of this module to be so pretentious that I’ll avoid it. Reading the manual hurt my brain more than necessary. I bet these sell really well but I also suspect you’ll see a lot in the used marketplace before too long.
