This video, via Audio Damage, is a brief demonstration of their recently announced ADM06 Sequencer 1 Eurorack format step sequencer. The sneak preview starts with a blank pattern, and ends with a random repeating “Berlin School” style pattern.
Developer Urs Heckmann has announced that Bazille 1.0 – a modular software synthesizer for Mac OS X and Windows (VST2, AU & AAX formats – 32bit & 64bit) – is now available.
Bazille is described as ‘a monster hybrid modular’, with digital oscillators combined with analogue-style filters and realistic effects.
Here’s the official intro video: Continue reading
Developer Jan Willem has announced a Kickstarter project to fund production of the Sampleslicer – a Eurorack realtime sample player module.
The Sampleslicer is a real-time monophonic sampler, including a 16 step voltage-controlled sequencer.The incoming sound is chopped up automatically into 16 parts by the incoming clock signal and spread out over the16 steps in the internal sequencer. Continue reading
Dreadbox has introduced the Erebus, a new semi-modular paraphonic analog synth module.
It offers what is essentially a monophonic synth architecture, but that allows for independent control of its two oscillators. This means you can play (or sequence) two different pitches, but the pitches will go through a shared VCF, VCA, etc. Continue reading
Electro-Harmonix has reintroduced the Clockworks Rhythm Generator/Synthesizer. The Clockworks doesn’t create sound on its own, but generates pulses to trigger other devices and can set the tempo for a drum machine or sequencer, like EHX’s 8 Step Program. Continue reading
LittleBits Electronics wants to build your custom synth module for their modular building system.
LittleBits already makes the Korg Synth Kit, a modular building kit that lets you snap together a basic modular synth, and a wide variety of other modules.
Now, they’ve announced The BitLab – a marketplace for user-generated hardware. You design a module, people vote for the most interesting modules, and the most interesting modules will get built. Continue reading
