DivKid MUTES vactrol-based performance muting module back in stock now!

DivKid Matttech Modular 14.02.19

Well, well, well….THIS is something exciting! Ben “DivKid” Wilson – longtime friend and huge contributor to the modular scene, both in the UK and further afield – has cooked up his very first Eurorack Module, MUTES. This was produced in collaboration with Spanish modular manufacturer Befaco, and together they have produced a classy bit of kit.

DivKid has been a huge part of the recent growth in modular, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting his new venture!


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


MUTES goes above and beyond basic muting by allowing you to split groups of signals to multiple destinations, making it great for FX dub performing and varied signal routing.

You also get a three position switch giving you: MOMENTARY signal pass through (it springs back to the centre when released); OFF (or muted) in the centre; and ON to the right. We’ve also added vactrols to the circuit giving the switching a pleasing decay for both audio and modulation as well a totally click free muting. This module can add mutes to anything, your mixer, module inputs or outputs, modulation signals, sequencers, gate sources and more.

TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock: 15 modes, VC-Switching, Internal FM, VCA & more..

TubeOhm Matttech Modular 19.02.19

Super-excited to have some fully-assembled units of the TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock – one of the most intriguing and unique designs we’ve seen in a while.

It is based on the SMR4mk.II filter circuit, and offers the 15 different filter modes of the 4-Pole MISSION VCF (both originally available for Mutable Instruments’ Shruthi Synthesizer)

It has the ability to switch filter modes under voltage control – along with a unique “internal FM” option which further adds to the available timbres by applying audio rate modulation to the cutoff point. This produces an alternate “dirtier” tone for each of the filter types.

We have tried this filter out in person, and can wholeheartedly recommend it – in fact,  Its basic sound is clean, clear and possesses a beautifully “liquidy” squelchy vibe – similar to the Doepfer a105 or Tiptop z2040 at times – but you’re not stuck with a single Lowpass mode. However, when you apply the internal FM it turns into a totally different beast, becoming a lot more aggressive and gnarly. In addition, when you take into account all the 15 modes it is hard to imagine a wider range of filtering in 10hp. Check the video below for examples!

Usually only available in (a rather complicated) kit form, these are lovingly assembled in Germany by the designer himself – Andre Laska 🙂

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE

Features:

  • Multimode 4-pole Voltage Controlled Filter with self-oscillation
  • 15 filter types with voltage controlled switching & LED matrix display
  • Onboard VCA
  • Outputs for VCF direct and also via VCA
  • Internal FM feature
  • CV inputs for Resonance, VCA Gain, Cutoff & 1v/oct
  • 20 Hz – 22kHz (Res 24dB)
  • Max signal amp input 5V p
  • Modulation: ext. 0-10 v

Expert Sleepers LITTLE MIKEY Eurorack mic/line preamp now in stock …plus other restocks

Expert Sleepers Matttech Modular 01.05.19-min

The Little Mikey from Expert Sleepers is a mic/instrument pre-amp in an 8HP Eurorack module, providing up to 60dB of exceptionally clean gain. It will provide 48V phantom power to condenser microphones and other phantom-powered equipment, and has a high impedance input option allowing direct connection of instruments such as electric guitars.

There are other options for interfacing external equipment with modular synths, but often they are dual channel, offer features you don’t need – such as output sections with headphone preamps when all you want is the input side. The cheap ones can be poor in terms of audio quality, and the higher end ones come with a price tag to match. Little Mikey is the perfect option for anyone needing a professional grade solution for the difficult part – getting external signals INTO the modular realm in high fidelity – without breaking the budget.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


We also have stock of other modules in the Expert Sleepers range, including:

Limited quantity of Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA lowpass gate just landed! …plus Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2

Sputnik Modular Vintage Synth Lab Matttech Modular 25.04.19-min

Well we weren’t expecting to ever see THIS vactrol-adorned badboy again! …but here it is – a final run of the excellent Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA. This module is a Buchla-inspired 4 channel lowpass gate with three different modes (VCA,VCF or COMBO/BOTH) which can be set on a per-channel basis. It features individual outs for each LPG, alongside internal mixing to 3 different sum outputs (ODD channels only, EVEN channels only, and ALL).

This was one of the first modules we stocked at Matttech Modular, and we loved it when we tested it out (see demos below, which sound just as good as we remember them!). We’ve had many customers ask whether there would ever be another run of them….and the answer has always been “no” – but here it is! No idea why these have suddenly appeared again. Maybe the manufacturer got sick of folk asking and did another run to shut them up 🙂

Limited units available, so don’t hang about if you want one.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


We have also topped up the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2. This has to be one of the most characterful filters we’ve ever come across – and immediately makes anything you put through it sound like it has been locked away up in the attic under dust sheets for several decades (that’s a GOOD thing, by the way). Where the Sputnik works its magic via the use of vactrols, this beauty uses a discrete diode filter circuit, inspired by the 1970s Univox Mini-Korg synthesizer’s “Traveler” filter section.

Alright Devices CHRONOBLOB 2 dual digital delay back in stock!

Alright Devices Matttech Modular 10.04.19

We have a bunch of the wonderful CHRONOBLOB 2 back in stock – this is a Tempo Synced Stereo Digital Delay, featuring: Freeze/ Hold, Analogue Feedback Send & Return, Multiple Delay Modes.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


Chronoblob 2 is a digital delay module!

Just like his little brother, Chronoblob 2 can sync to a clock signal. Patch one into the SYNC input and choose a multiplier or divider for rhythmic delays. Or leave SYNC unpatched for access to continuously variable delay times!

Chronoblob 2 offers four different delay modes! Dual delay mode provides two separate delays with shared controls. Ping-pong mode extends this intermingling even further by placing each delay in the feedback loop of the other.

Single delay is the classic Chronoblob mode with feedback SEND and RETURN. Patch in a lowpass filter for smooth, shadowy echoes, or get weird with a wavefolder or any other effect! Cascade delay mode expands on this archetype by also placing the second delay inside the feedback loop of the main delay, creating a wild multiplying echo effect.

Chronoblob 2 provides control voltage inputs for TIME, FEEDBACK, and DRY/WET, and bipolar attenuators for each so you can dial in just the right amount of control.

In Dual and Ping-pong delay modes, although both delay times are controlled by the main TIME knob, you can voltage-control each independently with the two TIME CV inputs. The right TIME CV is normalled to the left one so you can easily control both with the same signal. Additionally, the left TIME CV is normalled to five volts, allowing you to use the attenuators as offsets from the position of the main TIME knob.

Also in these ‘pink’ modes, the right audio input is normalled to the left input, and the right audio output is normally mixed into the left output (patching into the right jack breaks this connection).

Like the original Chronoblob, you can select the style of time modulation with the slide switch. Choose tape mode for sweeping pitchbend effects, or fade mode for smoother, cleaner changes.

Chronoblob 2 offers an INFINITE LOOP button and gate input to shut off the delay inputs and lock the feedback at 100%.

Specifications:

  • Audio: 16bit, 48kHz
  • Delay: 5ms to 2.73s
