Dtronics Teases Digidrum, 80’s Style Eurorack Drum Module

Dtronics released this sneak preview video for the Digidrum, described as an ’80’s style Eurorack drum module’.

Here’s what they have to say about the Digidrum Euro module:

With a 80’s soundset ( 8 sounds ). the samples are recorded with an Oberheim Prommer to get the right sound.

The unit also accepts home made sounds ( you have to put them in an serial eeprom or you can buy complete soundsets) or you can place one original 4K eprom with your Linndrum / DMX sound.

In the video demo, multiple Digidrum modules are sequenced as a modular drum machine.

Pittsburgh Modular Time Runner Logical Pattern Generator

pittsburgh-modular-time-runnerThe Pittsburgh Modular Time Runner is an analog clock divider and programmable pattern generator for Eurorack modular synthesizers.

The Time Runner utilizes a voltage-controlled dual logic core to create a wide range of programmable gate patterns.

The TimeRunner starts with a single clock source and divides it down into four individual channels. The output of each channel is based on a complex relationship between the clock source, a clock divider, and a chain of switchable and voltage controlled logic options. The result is a unique and extremely musical patten generator.

How It Works

The signal path of the TimeRunner starts with an internal or external clock source. The clock is split using a divider into 4 cascading channels creating even /2, /4, /8, /16 divisions of the clock source. Continue reading
