Just landed! New Empress Effects ZOIA EUROBURO, the Eurorack incarnation of the hugely popular ZOIA “modular-in-a-pedal”

Empress Effects Matttech Modular 07.09.21

Ever fancied the Empress Effects ZOIA pedal but wish it was a module with more Eurorack compatibility? Well all your dreams have finally come true! We’ve been keeping tabs on this since it was first announced many moons ago, and it’s now here – with added modular-focused interfacing & features! (see further down the page for a run-down).

In stock in very limited quantity!


AVAILABLE TO ORDER HERE!!


The Empress Effects ZOIA Euroburo is a digital modular system that can be placed in your modular system, a real Russian nesting doll situation. We added a headphone output and a super-slim optional case so the Euroburo can live happily on your desktop or be easily mounted in a Eurorack case. Hence the euro + buro, pronounced “bureau”…get it!?

Create unique signature effects, synthesizers, sequencers and more while using 4 freely assignable CV ins and 4 outs to interface with other CV enabled devices. The additional headphone output and powered 9-12v case makes the module even more desktop friendly. With over 90 modules from CV utilities to audio effects, oscillators and envelopes to MIDI, the Euroburo can do almost anything to fill the gaps in your setup.

There’s no need to worry about getting bogged down with endless menus or a cluttered interface. Creating patches and performing with the ZOIA is a tactile experience. Patching, deleting or moving modules and editing values can all be done quickly using the push-button grid and a flick of the encoder. With the addition of dedicated push buttons for the CV and Audio I/O, patching on the ZOIA has never been faster.

Euroburo Features:

  • 4 CV Input and 4 Output Jacks – Editable CV jacks that send or receive -5 to 5, 0 to 5 or 0 to 10 volts
  • 8 Dedicated CV UI Buttons – CV jack connections are always accessible on the face of the Euroburo
  • 2 Quick Access Buttons – Sticky buttons, the assigned function does not change when changing page. Great for live performances!
  • Stereo 3.5mm audio I/O – Includes dedicated audio I/O buttons to quickly patch in and out of the ZOIA
  • MIDI 1/8″ In/Out jack – MIDI 1/8″ in/out jacks allow you to connect a huge range of external devices to control any or all of ZOIA’s functions and easily add MIDI control to your modular setup!
  • Headphone Audio Out – 3.5mm headphone out with UI button for volume control
  • Skiff Friendly – 28mm depth with power
  • Optional Enclosure (SOLD SEPARATELY) – Durable 34 hp slim enclosure with included power supply. NOTE: this case will not function with standard Eurorack modules and is designed specifically to power the ZOIA Euroburo only! EMAIL US TO ORDER

Batch 2 of the new Sputnik Modular SPECTRAL PROCESSOR has landed …limited units available

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 only have limited 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.

New Transient Modules products available – 7J Joystick Controller and 2M Mixer, plus a restock of the popular 4R (Quad Random) & more..

Transient Modules Matttech Modular 13.09.21

We have added a couple of new modules from Spanish brand Transient Modules to our range – the 7J Joystick Controller and 2M Mixer. The 7J can either output constant voltages, depending on where the joystick is set …or you can feed signals INTO its inputs, and use the joystick to control their levels and/or polarities.

The 2M is a dual 3-channel mixer in 6 HP with volume controls on all the inputs as well as the final output. Low distortion / high quality audio operational amplifiers have been selected in order to achieve clean audio mixing, but is also DC-coupled, so it can perform CV signal mixing as well.

We’ve also restocked the super-useful 4R (Quad Random Voltage), a space-saving quad random voltage generator, featuring: 2 independent trigger inputs; normalising between trigger inputs; 2 pairs of random voltage outputs; each pair can be set to be either unipolar or bipolar (via jumpers)

The 8S (8-Step Sequencer) is also available to order again. It is a deceptively powerful 8 step sequencer with voltage control over reset, hold, random step & direction. Output can be set to unipolar or bipolar via a jumper.

Last but not least, as part of our *SALE*, we’ve slashed the price of the 1F (Voltage Controlled Switch) – previously £82, now only £65!

All XOR Electronics NERDSEQ Advanced Tracker Sequencer modules & expanders available to order, in all 3 panel designs!

XOR Electronics Matttech Modular 27.08.21

The XOR Electronics Nerdseq is a tracker based cv and trigger sequencer module for Eurorack systems. It allows straightforward and fast editing and has great live playing abilities. We offer the entire range of NERDSEQ modules via the website, and currently all 3 panel designs (BLACK, GREY & BLACK/GREY) are available as we write this …as are all of the expanders: MORE TRIGGERS 16, CV16, IO EXPANDER and the new TRS MIDI EXPANDER (this last one is currently only manufactured in black)


AVAILABLE TO ORDER HERE!!


ABOUT NERDSEQ:

It consist of 6 Tracks for the CV/Trigger/Gate generation of 18 outputs (12 CV + 6 Trigger/Gate). There are a further 4 sample Tracks, with 2 dedicated audio outputs for sample sequencing. Furthermore the sample outputs can act also as a waveform oscillator.

Dedicated clock/reset inputs and outputs are available for different clock types. 4 free assignable CV inputs can be used for live manipulation or CV/Gate recording. So in total there are 10 Tracks available for sequencing. The sequencer itself is inspired on old module trackers like Fasttracker2(PC)2 , OctaMED(Amiga)3 , LittleSoundDJ(Gameboy)4 and Little Piggy Tracker(Multiple Platforms)5…..

It contains many and very powerful functions for sequencing like an advanced live ability, pattern length of up to 64 steps, chaining, poly-rhythmic tracks, groove, glide, retrigger, flexible trigger/ gate/step lengths, patches, special effects, probability, tables and more.

The sampler tracks offer special functionality for sample playing, pitching, sample effects, retrigger and many more. Samples can be loaded from a dedicated SD card available on the front panel.

The sequencer is able to make loops and full songs (even multiple songs on one project, depending on complexity, usage of patterns etc.) Patterns can be started and stopped independent from the tracks which allows flexible clip-style sequencing. Projects can be saved and loaded on/from the microSD card. All editing is implemented in a very easy way, so every screen or edit option can be accessed through one key or Shift + Key. No complex submenus from submenus or menu diving is needed.

Additional expanders allow Midi recording and sequencing, the connection of a Sega Gamepad for controlling and up to 64 more Trigger/Gate/CV outputs and modulators.

Utilities: If you know, you know… – a quick dive into the murky world of the humble utility module

Utilities MM

As part of running Matttech Modular I spend a lot of time putting together starter systems for customers, and one of the most common mistakes people make when selecting their first combination of modules is that they they often overlook the “utility” side of things. I mean, who wants to think about boring stuff like attenuverters, offsets and VCAs when there are so many super-duper fancy-pants oscillators to spend your hard earned readies on? Surely it would be more fun to stuff every last inch of your system with exotic FX, morphing filters and granular goodness?

Well, basically, no.

Whilst there’s no denying the appeal of such modules, a lot of the “fun” of Modular synthesis is found in the process of creating patches which seem to have a life of their own, constantly evolving and spiralling off in unforeseen directions.

In order to achieve this lofty goal there’s no getting around it – you need a bunch of utilities in your rig. The “plumbing”, so to speak.

You may have heard the phrase “you can never have too many VCAs”… and the same could be said about attenuators, crossfaders, switches, mixers, logic, clock and trigger modifiers etc.. some of it may not be obviously useful when you start out, but you will be glad of it once you start digging a little deeper into your patching.

That is why modules which combine a few utility functions into one product are great – you’ll be unlikely to use every function in every session, but you’ve got a tidy set of tools to reach for when you start to explore more ambitious patching. I’ve often set aside a couple of hours to investigate some new technique such as min/max or bipolar mixing, only to find it leads me down an unexpectedly creative path.. and the next thing you know you’ve recorded a 20-minute jam that sounds awesome.

So spare a thought for the humble utility! 🙂

A few excellent examples of such modules are the XAOC Devices SAMARA II, Joranalogue Audio Design COMPARE 2 & MORPH 4, Klavis LOGICA XT & FLEXSHAPER, After Later Audio BLEND, Bastl Instruments DYNAMO, Dreadbox UTOPIA, Mutable Instruments LINKS & KINKS and WMDevices OSD (or/sum/dif).

All in stock and ready to forge new pathways in your brain!


ALL OF OUR UTILITY MODULES CAN BE FOUND HERE

XAOC Devices restock just landed, including new MOSKWA II Rotary Sequencer, OSTANKINO II Expander …plus ZADAR, SARAJEWO, KATOWICE & 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.

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….

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.

The mighty Instruo SAICH Quad Oscillator is back in …along with top-ups of Cs-L, OCHD, CEIS, TANH & SCION

Instruo Matttech Modular 13.07.21

If you’re in the market for a unique analogue oscillator, Instruo bring you the SAICH – a quad oscillator with super-saw functionality and built in “smart” VCA mixing. At its core are four fully analogue sawtooth waveforms that can be intervallically offset, individually and globally detuned, transformed and transposed, and mixed together in creative and interesting ways.

 

Also back in stock: SCION, CEIS, TANH [3] and (yet) another batch of the super-popular OCHD 8xLFO module produced in conjunction with demo king DivKid
