Here’s a video demo of the Metasonix R-57 Dual Preamp/VCA Eurorack module. The new module offers 50db of available gain, assuring ‘true ugliness’.
“This is not intended to be a nice, neat, clean, sweet and virginal VCA,” warns designer Eric Barbour. “It is what it is.”
Demo details, via bigcitymusic:
To start the demo we ran both channels of a Cwejman D-LFO (as oscillators) into the R-57. A Cwejman RG-6 Random Generator used to CV control the R-57’s VCA.
Starting at 00:57 a drum loop is fed into the R-57. Awesome overdrive ensues.
Starting at 02:09 a sine wave from the D-LFO is fed into the R-57. The results again are awesome.
The last section, starting at 03:37, is a xoxbox (Roland TB-303 clone) being fed into the R-57. The result, you guessed it, awesome!
