Noise Engineering has recently announced a new series of pitch-oriented CV generators and processors: Quant Gemi, Quantus Pax, and Vox Digitalis.
Quant Gemi is a quad-octave switch and buffered mult. Quantus Pax is a four-channel precision adder with two inputs per channel, as well as three universal transpose inputs. Vox Digitalis is a small, quick-to-use pitch sequencer with four octaves of range and arbitrary sequence lengths of 1-16 steps. Use all three modules together for endless pitch-sequencing possibilities.
Quant Gemi is a simple solution to a common problem: many oscillators don’t have octave switches, so transposing isn’t always easy. Quant Gemi solves this issue by allowing the user to transpose a sequence 0, 1, or 2 octaves with the flip of a switch. The inputs are also circularly normalled together, so it can act as a buffered mult, and transpose copies of the inputs separately. Quant Gemi is a compact and useful utility, great for performance and composition.
Quantus Pax is a four-channel precision adder, useful for a variety of pitch-sequencing tasks. Each of the four channels has two inputs. The top input of each channel is circularly normalled so Quantus Pax ?can act as a buffered mult. Three transpose inputs sum to all channels. Modify the same sequence multiple times, in different ways simultaneously with minimal HP, transpose multiple sequences at the same time, add vibrato to a chord with a single LFO, and more. And with high-precision resistors, your patch will always stay in tune.
Vox Digitalis is Noise Engineering’s answer to what they saw as a hole in the market: small, simple-to-use pitch sequencers are few and far between. Vox Digitalis: it has a four octave range, a customizable number of steps anywhere from 1-16, 16 pattern load/save slots, and two easy-to-read displays showing current step and current note. It also has three playback modes: forwards, random, and pendulum. Sequences are easy to edit: the Adv button changes step, and the encoder changes the note. It also has time-quantized patch loading options, so the user’s patterns can always load on the beat or at the end of a measure. “No menu diving, no complicated shortcuts, just simple, fast sequencing in a tiny package!”
