Audio Damage Intros Neuron FM Drum Synth Voice For Eurorack Modulars

neuron-drum-voiceAudio Damage‘s Chris Randall has announced a new FM drum synth voice module for Eurorack systems, the Neuron.

Randall notes:

Unlike a traditional FM voice, this isn’t a pair of sine waves. The modulator is a sine, but the carrier is a single-cycle sample from a 909 kick drum’s oscillator, taken direct from the board of a hardware 909.

Audio Damage Intros Odio 2-in 2-out USB Audio Interface

IMGP5770At the 2015 Denver Synth Meet, Chris Randall of Audio Damage, right, introduced the Odio – a 2-in 2-out USB audio interface that runs at modular audio levels (10v p-p).

Odio was originally designed to make it easy to use with iOS devices with your modular – for recording, running insert effects or instruments.

Odio is a class-compliant USB audio interface, though, so it can be also be used with any Linux, Mac or Windows computer to integrate VST plug-in effects as inserts in your modular.

It also offers DC-coupled outputs, so it can also be used as an output pair for apps like Silent Way or Volta.
