Chris Blarsky of Ninstrument let us know about a new module design, the Euro-X-Fader, that brings DJ-style cross-fader control to Eurorack modular synthesizers.
The prototype Euro-X-Fader is shown above. It lets you do live cross-fading, and you can also use it as a CV controller for other modules.
Blarsky is wondering if there’s enough interest, among current Euro users or DJs, to merit moving the Euro-X-Fader into production.
Here’s what he has to say about the module:
“I have added CV outs, so you can plug directly into a Eurorack oscillator so you can get 100% analog scratch.
I use the industry standard inofader with its controls to custom the feel just to your performing style.
I have heard of rumors of DJ Qbert and others using sounds from eurorack modular, and I myself have spent some time behind a couple of tables, so it made sense to combine them.
I am curious to what the opinions of other synthesists and DJ’s would like to see in a DJ focused eurorack module. “
You can get details on the Euro-X-Fader from the manual (pdf).
What do you think of the Euro-X-Fader module concept? Should it go into production? If you think you might be interested, check out the details and share your feedback for Ninstrument in the comments!
