OTO Machines Intros BAM Space Generator Stereo Reverb Processor

oto-bam-space-generatorOTO Machines has introduced BAM – a stereo reverb processor inspired by vintage 70’s & 80’s digital reverberator units.

“The musicality of the early digital reverb processors was partly due to the algorithms (the way the processor synthesized a natural reverberation), but also due to their hardware limitations,” they note. “The technology used in BAM is very close to the one used in these early digital reverberator units: 16 bits converters, 20 bits fixed-point processing, analog filtering and even an input transformer transient simulator.”

Here’s their official video intro: Continue reading

Erica Synths Intros Black Hole DSP Eurorack Effects Module

erica-synths-black-hole-dsp-eurorack-moduleErica Synths has introduced the Black Hole DSP – a Euro-format module that offers 16 audio effects.

Each effect has 4 adjustable and CV controllable parameters, along with CV-controlled effect select.

In addition, external effect boards (sold separately), containing new sets of effects, can be added to customize the Erica Black Hole DSP to your way of creating music.’

The Erica Synths Black CV Expander is also available, to allow more precise CV control over parameters.

Electro-Harmonix Lester K Stereo Rotary Speaker Demos

When Electro-Harmonix announced its new EHX ‘Lester‘ rotary speaker effect, they introduced two models:

  • The Lester G was designed with guitarists in mind, and includes a dedicated compressor that maximizes the rotary speaker effect on guitar; and
  • The Lester K is tailored to the needs of keyboardists looking for Leslie-style rotary speaker effects.

Their original demos were all with guitar, though. Now they’ve followed up with a pair of videos that put the Lester K through its paces, with keyboard. Continue reading

Black Cat Intros Monster K-Fuzz Eurorack Module

monster-k-fuzz-euro-moduleBlack Cat Pedals has introduced the Monster K-Fuzz Eurorack synthesizer.

The Monster K-Fuzz module processes audio input signals through a modified vintage fuzz circuit to create an array of harmonically complex tones and textures. Unlike vintage fuzz circuits, though, the Monster K-Fuzz module has been adapted and optimized specifically for use with modular synthesizers.

The Monster K-Fuzz module features variable controls for Saturation and Frequency, 3-position selector switches for Clipping and Voicing, and two separate Voltage Control Inputs.

Here’s a demo of the Monster K-Fuzz module in action: Continue reading
