Shakmat Releases Gemini’s Path Stereo Sound Processing Module

Shakmat has introduced the Gemini’s Path, described as a ‘compact and creative tool for dynamics and stereo duties’.

The Gemini’s Path is a hybrid analog/digital stereo sound processing device, which can shapeshift into an expander, compressor, auto panner & more.

The Gemini’s Path, despite its small size, is a mix of three modules: a pair of VCAs (That Corp branded for low distorsion & low noise) driven by a dual modulation source, that is excited by the trigger detector which extracts triggers from the input signals or an external / side chain input.

Since the modulation source delivers different types of modulation, the Gemini’s Path offers lots of different application possibilities, such as:

  • Expander: with decay or hold control
  • Pump: compressor like device with adjustable release time (also with a unique release shape)
  • Panner: sine panner, random panner or triggered panner
  • Granuliser: chops the signal into small bits & spread them in the stereo field
  • VCAs: stereo VCAs with volume and panning control.
  • Or two independent VCAs

The Gemini’s Path allows linked or independent control over two channels and can therefore be used as two mono units (with different modes on each channels).
