New in from Shakmat Modular: HARLEQUIN’S CONTEXT & DUAL DAGGER …plus restocks of TIME WIZARD, GEMINI’S PATH, SUMDIF & HIPASS

Shakmat Modular Matttech Modular 20.07.21

Shakmat Modular are one of those brands who never fail to come up with designs that offer something pretty unique, or take established concepts and push them into new territories ..and these latest releases are no exception! We’ve been especially excited about the HARLEQUIN’S CONTEXT, as it will allow for all manner of preset voltage and modulation shape generation in response to manual input, CV or gates …while the DUAL DAGGER manages to cram a shedload of features into the stereo filter concept – including independent control over low-pass and high-pass cutoff frequencies, an assignable resonance, and voltage-controlled “Pan” feature for creating interesting directional effects.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!


We’ve also topped up the following:

  • TIME WIZARD – Six Channel Clock Divider/ Multiplier, in Two Sections, with Additional Logic Functions. Based on 6 dividers with selectable division factors and 4 switches providing 81 routing variations. Can easily clock and reset other sequencers with odd time signatures, provide weird clock division/multiplication ratios, and create complex poly-rhythms.
  • GEMINI’S PATH – Stereo or dual mono dynamic processor and panner. 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 !
  • SUMDIFF – Dual adder / differentiator module capable of handling both CV and audio signals. Use it for mid/side processing, precision adding with 1v/oct signals & more…
  • HIPASS – 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.

XAOC Devices restock just landed, including new MOSKWA II Rotary Sequencer, OSTANKINO II Expander …plus ZADAR, ODESSA, SAMARA II & more..

Xaoc Devices Matttech Modular 01.06.21

A tidy restock of Polish brand XAOC Devices just landed – including the new MOSKWA II sequencer & OSTANKINO II expander….along with restocks of old favourites such as the ZADAR quad loopable envelope, SAMARA II swiss-army knife of utilities, and the big ol’ ODESSA additive oscillator.

We also have the SARAJEWO syncable BBD analogue delay and KATOWICE stereo variable band isolator in stock.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!     


It’s always a big event when XAOC Devices bring out a new product (or two), and we simply could NOT pass this one up! The original MOSKWA sequencer was a deceptively powerful module which spent many years in our demo system when it first came out – the combination of a simple interface and the ability to modulate its playback in a wide variety of ways made it a real “go-to” device for building tracks around. The MOSKWA II has taken the original and added a whole host of wicked features – probability, programmable slew, quantizer, independent rhythmic patterns PER STEP …along with a ton more options available via its OSTANKINO II Expander. You can even chain 2 MOSKWAS to create longer sequences. This is gonna be fun….

Sputnik Modular are back! …with the 296r-based 16-channel SPECTRAL PROCESSOR. In stock now.

Sputnik Modular Matttech Modular 05.07.21

Sputnik Modular are BACK! …with the SPECTRAL PROCESSOR – a set of 16 bandpass filters with CV inputs and audio & envelope follower outputs for each band, plus various other special functions and dedicated outputs. This allows for many different techniques such as vocoding, spectral morphing, EQ, pinged percussive sounds & more…. Take one simple sound source and use the 16 filters to bring specific “slices” of the frequency spectrum in and out with CV – it’s truly impressive what can be achieved with even a simple waveform!

These feature excellent build quality with solid bolted pots and a circuit design by Andrew Morelli of Steady State Fate (SSF).

We have several units in stock right now, and more arriving on Wednesday 7th July. Grab ’em soon to avoid disappointment…


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!


A few new features separate the Sputnik Spectral Processor from the 296r Buchla format version.

  • Bandpass program control now features discrete transistor vcas on all channels.
  • Odd and even amp control can now be fully attenuated and additional soft saturation can be applied beyond 60% of travel for the odd/even amp level controls.
  • Bandpass faders now control both eq and program output levels, rather than just eq on the 296r version.
  • Consolidated design on a low profile, single pcb with integrated soft start and reverse power protection as well as significantly reduced current consumption.

Programmed Outputs

The heart of the spectral processor is the programmable control of the 16 filters. The program control section features frequency and width controls for selecting and sweeping through the active bandpass filters. Local program inputs above each band provide direct control over the level of each filter. Spectrum transfer activates the associated odd or even bandpass filter envelope followers to control the other, such as needed in the classic vocoder function. This can be applied to any two inputs in order to ‘analyze’ the spectral density of one of the inputs and impart this dynamic energy onto the other.

16 Band Equalizer

The 16 bandpass filters feature a dedicated attenuator and can provide up to +6db of additional gain per channel. Input signals can be directed to the odd/even numbered filters exclusively or all 16 filters simultaneously via input jack normalization. Dedicated odd and even sum outputs are provided as well as a full summed output for all 16 bands of the EQ feature.

Direct Outputs

Direct outputs are provided for each bandpass filter, as well an envelope follower; offering a dynamic control voltage of a specific band’s energy content.

Pre-fader Outputs

Summed outputs for the odd and even numbered direct outputs.

Joranalogue MORPH 4 Dimensional Modulation Array, GENERATE 3 & FILTER 8 all back in stock! …plus restocks of entire range, including CONTOUR 1, FOLD 6, COMPARE 2, SELECT 2 & more..

Joranalogue Matttech Modular 21.12.20

A boat-load of Joranalogue modules have landed, including all their big-hitters, whose multi-faceted design means that they rarely do only one thing. They can be manipulated within a wide variety of patches and offer incredibly deep levels of functionality. For example, the innocuous sounding FILTER 8 is not only a gorgeous sounding multimode filter – but can also be used as a Phaser, VC-LFO, 8-Phase Oscillator & Slew Limiter! ….and the engineering and build quality is really something else on these.

Back in stock are:

  • FILTER 8
  • MORPH 4
  • FOLD 6
  • GENERATE 3
  • CONTOUR 1
  • COMPARE 2
  • LINK 2

  • SELECT 2
  • TRANSMIT 2

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


MORPH 4

When Joranalogue release their take on a module, you KNOW it’s done right …and this time round it’s the turn of the Dimensional Modulation Array. “Eh?”, “a what??” – you’re probably thinking – well, the MORPH 4 is essentially a fully-featured modulation hub for Eurorack synthesisers, taking the basic concept of the multi-VCA module to the next level. Able to function as a voltage controlled mixer, dual crossfader, dual panner, interpolating scanner, interpolating distributor, quad VCA, quadraphonic controller, slope modifier, rectifier, complex waveshaper or something in between any of those—the choice is yours. One point worth noting is that Input A has a +5 V normal, making it easy to use Morph 4 to GENERATE signals, rather than simply process them. hmmmm….

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 2.7

More Bastl Instruments are here in new black panels, including TIMBER Serge-based Wavefolder and SKIS II Dual VC-Decay/Linear VCA

Bastl Instruments Matttech Modular 13.04.21

New black panel versions of the wonderful TIMBER Serge-based Wavefolder & SKIS II Dual VC-Decay/Linear VCA are now in stock, as Bastl gradually move all of their modules to the dark side.  We have played with both of these modules ourselves, and can heartily recommend them!

Also in stock in the new black panel design: DARK MATTER, CINNAMON, ABC MIXER & KOMPAS


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!


  • SKIS II – this module, in particular, is criminally overlooked in our opinion. If you want to turn any oscillator into a a drum sound, well this is the module for you! It features 2 voltage-controlled, super spiky exponential Decay envelopes (which remind us very much of the kind of shapes produced by Make Noise’s Maths)…along with 2 linear VCAs, which are internally normalised to the output of the Decay envelopes (but can also be used independently). Not only that, but they are DC-coupled, so can be USED on CV signals as well as audio – in order to control the level of modulation flowing around your system. All of this for just £129.. (NOTE: We also still have one SKIS II left in the aluminium/blue version)
  • TIMBER – this wavefolder offers an extremely wide range of timbres, and features an integrated vc-crossfader, voltage-controlled feedback, along with various different drive and fold modes. It can be used for traditional wave folding, or simply to add test and saturation to sounds. We lost many hours playing with this thing!

MATTTECH MODULAR & BASTL INSTRUMENTS:
We are now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Bastl Instruments now, and have lots of other products either in stock, or listed as “stock available at our supplier”, who are UK-based and ship to us the same day your order is placed – meaning you’ll receive your item within 2-3 working days.
If they don’t have an item in stock, we don’t take orders for it, and show it as “out of stock”. Simple! 🙂

Source Audio restock: COLLIDER Delay+Reverb, VENTRIS Dual Reverb, NEMESIS Delay …plus we now also have the TRUE SPRING REVERB

Source Audio Matttech Modular 16.06.20-min

A little while ago, whilst fantasising about buying some new pedals for our demo/ “playtime” system, we came across these beauties from Source Audio – COLLIDER, VENTRIS & NEMESIS …and, boy, do they deliver the goods. We have tested these badboys out with various synth & modular material, and can absolutely testify that they sound incredible! Many hours were lost running simple synth patches into the combo and disappearing into ambient soundscape land…. If you’re the kind of person who tends to put your effects at the end of your signal chain, and would prefer to have something that doesn’t run on a computer – and is physically tweakable – well it’s definitely worth considering a pedal or two..

We have also just added the TRUE SPRING REVERB, for those of you who specifically desire the sound of springs – which work exceptionally well with synthesizers – but don’t want the hassle or noise that can come with a physical reverb tank. It offers 3 different superbly-modelled spring reverbs, along with 3 types of tremolo. In stock now!


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


All pedals on the ONE Series – from which these are taken – can access the Neuro Desktop Editor and Neuro Mobile App, which offers additional algorithms, a useful set of hardware options, alternate routing options, and an intuitive sound editing interface for creating presets.

There is also an active online community sharing presets via the Source Audio website. And they sound amazing. Just ask Gaz & Nick from Sonicstate…or simply watch their faces while playing with the VENTRIS 😉

We have embedded a selection of YouTube videos on the relevant product pages, showing the Source Audio pedals in use with synths…but there are many more excellent demos showing them in use with guitars – some of which possibly give you a better idea of their range, due to the short, plucked nature of the source material. Just imagine them on a nice, plucked lowpass gate patch!

  • TRUE SPRING REVERB – Turn on to the vintage charm of natural spring reverb coupled with pulsing tremolo. Source Audio doesn’t depend on the off-the-shelf reverb effects processors found in many modern reverb pedals, we meticulously craft every one of our proprietary effects engines and load them to high-powered, 56-bit Sigma DSP.  Years of collective man-hours were put into capturing every nuance and idiosyncrasy of the spring reverb and tremolo effects from some of the music gear industry’s most iconic guitar amps and outboard gear. The result is indisputable sound quality with magnificent tonal depth and precision.
  • COLLIDER Delay+Reverb – Design complex soundscapes in seconds with the Source Audio Collider Delay+Reverb. We hand-picked 12 standout delay and reverb effects from our award winning Nemesis Delay and Ventris Dual Reverb, and put them together in one compact housing with massive power and dead simple control. The Collider’s intuitive control surface makes it easy to mix-and-match any two-engine combination of delay and reverb. Dual footswitches provide individual Engage/Bypass control over each effect, making it a perfect choice for live performance.
  • NEMESIS Delay – The Source Audio Nemesis Delay is the culmination of three years of intense research, listening, and engineering. The mission was to create a compact, powerful, and easy-to-use delay pedal with unrivaled tone, flexibility, and style. Nemesis offers 26 distinct effect engines ranging from vintage tape and analog delays to highly advanced pitch-shifting, reverse, filter modulating, and rhythmic delays. It also features 128 presets, multiple delay taps, a hold function, tap tempo, full MIDI control, deep editing functionality with the Neuro Mobile App, and much more.
  • VENTRIS Dual Reverb – Create rich, spacious reverberations with the Source Audio Ventris Dual Reverb. The Ventris features 14 meticulously crafted reverb engines built on two completely independent 56-bit signal processors, essentially housing a matching pair of high-powered reverb pedals in a single box. The Ventris’s powerful dual processing architecture gives the pedal some serious advantages including massive processing muscle, adjustable preset spillover time, and the ability to create dual reverb effects.

All of these are now back in stock, and a new version of the CRIME expander for MIASMA is in the works.

And, quite frankly, any designers who habitually wear Coil t-shirts are very much fine with us 🙂

All modules are in stock and ready to ship!

TWIN WAVES MKII vs ORIGINAL VERSION:

  • Same width as original
  • All capabilities and features of the original have been retained.
  • Three dedicated modulation gain pots have been added.
  • Semi-modular cross-section patching is now possible.
  • Additional tweaks & improvements implemented.
  • Whereas the original Twin Waves required +/-5V signals to benefit from full scale modulation, the new version requires less and has gain knobs for all 3 modulation inputs.

These new gain knobs are even more beneficial, given that normalling of their outputs to the other section’s modulation input(s) allows creative results without requiring extra patching. This offers an easy and creative access to “complex oscillator” fun and cross modulation craziness..

Using the outputs does not break their normalling; this avoids using a “multiple” when the output signal should go both inside and outside the module. Of course, if you would rather use an external modulation source, simply connect it to the relevant CV input and this will override the internal normalling.

The dedicated Square1 output of the first oscillator is normalled to the global sync/clock input. This allows synchronizing the second oscillator both for audio and LFO/random purposes.

OCHD:

Well Ben “DivKid” Wilson has done it again! After the HUGE success of his MUTES module – developed with Befaco – he has teamed up with Scottish brand Instruo this time round to produce the OCHD. This nifty unit packs 8 all-analogue LFOs into a convenient 4HP package.

Richard Devine described it as “the most organic little modulator ever”….and that is the idea: add a ton of natural, free-flowing modulation to your system in one go – all with a master Rate control that can itself be CV-controlled. Nice

(First few batches FLEW out so grab ’em while you can)
