Corsynth has introduced the C105E Voltage Controlled Noise / Lo-Fi Machine – a voltage controlled analog sample rate reducer, with an internal white noise generator.
This module is based on a Sample and Hold designed to work at audio rates. The internal clock runs from 250Hz up to 40KHz and can be voltage controlled. This wide frequency range and two FM inputs ( one with a reversible attenuator ) allow it to create subtle digital effects or really harsh and Lo-Fi sounds.
The internal noise generator, in combination with the S&H, also make a perfect way to create pitched noise, useful for synthesizing drums sounds, drones and sound effects. Continue reading
Spektro Audio has updated CV Toolkit – a Mac/Windows app that’s designed to let you integrate your computer as a control voltage source with hardware modular synthesizers.
The new update includes five new modules (Shift Register, Shaper, Delay, PWM Clock, and Euclidean Sequencer), support for the Expert Sleepers ES-4, ES-40, ESX-4CV, and ESX-8CV modules (still in an experimental stage but working fine according to my tests), a new pitch detection algorithm that vastly improves VCO calibration, and various improvements and bug fixes.
Here are details on the new modules: Continue reading

Synthrotek has introduced the MST Eurorack Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter – a collaboration with synth pioneer George Mattson.
The MST Low Pass Filter is a precision analog dual-slope output 2 & 4 pole filter. It offers simultaneous -12 DB and -24 DB outputs, with CV control over all parameters. It can also be used as a 1V/O sine wave oscillator.
- Manual control of cutoff frequency
- Manual Control of Resonance (Q)
- 1V/O input for clean sine wave output
- CV Frequency input w/ attenuator
- Resonance CV input w/ attenuator
- Audio input
- Simultaneous -12 db and -24 db/octave outputs
