It’s been a while since we had a restock from Belgian brand Shakmat Modular, and they have released a few new modules in the meantime…so here goes!

In addition to restocking the popular TIME WIZARD Six Channel Clock Divider/ Multiplier, we have the following recent releases in stock (some in very limited quantities though!)

  • GEMINI’S PATH – a very handy module to control the dynamics of two signals or mess with the stereo image. Based on a pair of high-end VCAs, an audio to trigger converter and a smart modulation source, the Gemini’s Path allows numerous operations such as decay/gate on amplitude, auto accentuation, sidechain compression, auto pan and more !
  • CLOCK O’PAWN – a useful clock sourcing device that performs as your system’s true “chef d’orchestre”. Its transport section lets you start, stop, and reset connected instruments which are synchronised to an intuitive internal clock source or dancing along with your analogue and MIDI equipment. If you get bored by a metronomous clock, turn up the swing function and the maestro will lead with a nice shuffled feel.
  • SUMDIF – a dual adder/differentiator module capable of handling both CV and audio signals. Numerous applications, like unity mixing, buffering and inverting, can be achieved; you can also experiment with Mid/Side audio processing ! The SumDif has a precision signal path and can process V/oct signals perfectly. The two jumpers on the back side allow to reduce the A+B and A-B outputs gain by 6dB.
  • HIPASS – a quad fixed frequency high pass filter. The two first sections are 3-pole filters (-18dB/oct) cutting at 30Hz. This removes low frequencies generated by resonant filters, FM synthesis and DC offsets from your audio signals. Use them to process the main stereo output from your modular system and remove non-audible signals that limit your headroom! The bottom two sections are 3-pole filters cutting at 100Hz. They are designed to work exactly like the low-cut sections on your favourite mixing desk.
