All TENDRILS super-slimline Eurorack patch cables now 20-25% OFF! ….both RIGHT-ANGLED & STRAIGHT versions

** As part of our current MEGA SALE, all TENDRILS super-slimline Eurorack patch cables now 20-25% OFF! ….both RIGHT-ANGLED & STRAIGHT versions, in all colours **

NOTE! Many variations now sold out, or very low on stock…but we still have a decent amount of different colours & lengths left…

The right-angled cables from TENDRILS have often been spotted in photos of high-profile artists over the last year or two – especially those who play live, or leave specific cables semi-permanently patched up – and now that we’ve had these in our hands, we can see why! They are extremely slimline – which makes them very flexible for weaving around tight spaces, in addition to making them very lightweight (useful if you are carrying your case around pre-patched). It’s especially important to have very slim cables and plugs when using right-angled designs, as otherwise it becomes very tricky to weave them around various inputs and knobs on your modules’ faceplates. It also becomes hard to have several of them running away from adjacent sockets when those sockets are close together. So….TENDRILS are what you want!

They come in the original RIGHT-ANGLED design, and also in a newer STRAIGHT version – if you want slim, flexible cables but don’t need the right-angles.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


Another customer – Molten Modular’s Robin Vincent – found the photos below helpful when it came to comparing TENDRILS against the most “standard” cable size/shape used by Eurorack patch cable brands – such as Erica Synths, Eowave, FoMu, Black Market Modular etc…. These “standard” cables are actually already slimmer than many other competing designs, and are probably our favourite for usual day-to-day use…but if you require a right-angled design, or when weight and flexibility are key concerns you can clearly see that TENDRILS win out.

The “standard” Eurorack cable design is in Green, and the TENDRILS are in pink (“Magenta”, to use it’s official name)

New Sputnik Modular VARIABLE WAVEFORM GENERATOR in stock: Buchla-style discrete analogue oscillator with ergonomic fader-based interface and circuit design by Andrew Morelli of Steady State Fate (SSF)

Sputnik Modular Matttech Modular 24.03.22

Sputnik Modular are back again! …this time with the VARIABLE WAVEFORM GENERATOR – a brand new, Buchla-style discrete analogue oscillator with an ergonomic interface featuring faders for the most important sound-sculpting functions. In stock now!

It offers 4 simultaneous waveform outputs – each of which has its own independent waveform processing (see further down for more details) – along with a pulse wave sub-oscillator which can be set to -1 or -2 octaves below the VCO’s fundamental pitch. There is an LFO switch for easily turning it into a complex modulation source, along with Coarse/ Fine Pitch controls, both Linear and Exponential FM (simultaneously) and a Hard Sync with a particularly “tearing” character.

As with the previous SPECTRAL PROCESSOR, this offers excellent build quality with solid bolted pots, high quality components and circuit design by Andrew Morelli of Steady State Fate (SSF)….not only that, but our man DivKid has already put together an in-depth video showing off all the timbral tastiness within this module. Enjoy! (video linked below)

This thing looks really special, and right up our alley.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!


The VARIABLE WAVEFORM GENERATOR features a host of parameters for shaping the sound – available to be tweaked manually from the front panel via sliders and/or modulated via CV. Each of these are applied to the relevant waveform and can be used simultaneously for an extremely complex, layered sound:

  • Pulse output – features PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) with a switch for Edge PWM (more traditional PWM) or Centre (which creates a stepped waveform and a more chorus-like effect.
  • Sine output – processed by a Wavefolder with Asymmetrical or Symmetrical folding, each of which produces a different tonal range.
  • Saw output – this offers a wave animator which morphs from a simple saw to either a Double or Triple peak waveform, for those Livewire AFG-style animations.
  • Triangle output – passses through a gorgeous Drive circuit with selectable Odd or Even harmonics for two different flavours of drive/ saturation which make for some wonderfully woody tones.

The CV inputs for these sound-shaping parameters respond to both positive and negative voltages at their CV inputs, which means that you can modulate the waves to silence and experiment with Amplitude Modulation (AM) for Pseudo-Ring Modulation tones.

Just landed! New Bastl Instruments SOFTPOP 2 standalone semi-modular experimental synth, sequencer & sound processor

Bastl Instruments Matttech Modular 24.03.22

Although we initially started stocking Bastl Instruments for their range of intriguing Eurorack modules, we couldn’t overlook their eccentric standalone units for long, and the KASTLE Synth and MICROGRANNY Granular Sampler have become firm favourites with our customers.

New from the Bastl stable is the updated SOFTPOP 2 – which adds so much that it’s an understatement to call it a “sequel” really. SP2 is the culmination of a near decade-long creative partnership between Casper Electronics and Bastl Instruments and brings together the strengths and quirky design stylings of lead engineers Peter Edwards and Václav Peloušek. The designers feel it’s their best work to date and a product of pure passion for innovative synthesis, music-making, and experimentation.

It is a radical subtractive synth under the influence of unconventional digital control. SP2’s favorite sounds include bassline bangers, angelic chord progressions, distorted beats, and water droplets. Softpop also has an external input with enough gain and saturation to process any sound thru the filter and VCA. Add to that a powerful & flexible sequencer, MIDI control and a huuuuuge Eurorack-compatible patchbay and you’re good to go… Check the product page or Loopop’s excellent video below for the full scoop…


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!


BASTL INSTRUMENTS STANDALONE DEVICES IN STOCK:

  • SOFTPOP 2
  • KASTLE v1.5
  • MICROGRANNY (Black)
  • DUDE

Final stock of the wonderful WMD & SSF collaboration modules just in: Grab SPECTRUM, TOOL-BOX, BLENDER & AMPLITUDE before they disappear forever!

WMD SSF Matttech Modular 21.02.22

It was a sad day when WMDevices announced that they were discontinuing their range of modules that were designed in collaboration with Andrew Morelli of Steady State Fate (SSF), and we’ve been trying to procure a few of the last remaining units before they disappear into the ether and end up on Reverb.com for about 10 times their original price!

This range is one of our all-time favourites, as it offers a wealth of amazing modules – all with great sound, comprehensive features, in a relatively small size for a great price – all without sacrificing anything in terms of ergonomics or build quality. Honestly, if there was ever a range that we’d have been completely happy with building an entire system out of – especially when you’re talking about more traditional analogue – this was it!

Many of the design features have been developed into newer WMD products, along with features from modules in the WMD range itself (for example, the discontinued WMD/SSF MMF Multimode Filter has morphed into the C4RBN module, and the ADSRVCA has melded with the WMD Multimode Envelope to produce JAVELIN) …but we can’t help having a soft spot for the original range.

We only have 4 of the modules in stock – and limited units at that:

  • SPECTRUM – Analog Saw-core Oscillator with Octave Switch and Sub-Oscillator (excellent pure sine waves, lovely FM…and a SAW sub option very rarely found on VCOs. VERY beefy too!)
  • TOOL-BOX – Multi-purpose Utility Module with 6 Simultaneous Functions (features a bunch of very handy CV utilities in a small footprint. Perfect for portable systems)
  • AMPLITUDE – Discrete Transistor Core VCA with Saturation (the best VCA we’ve come across, and we’re keeping some for ourselves!)
  • BLENDER – Flexible Audio / CV Mixer with Six Inputs, and Voltage Controlled Crossfader (again, one of the best versions of this kind of design we’ve tested, with zero bleed and extremely easy to get great crossfading results from when using standard CV sources)

Now if only we’d grabbed an ULTRAFOLD for our own system. dang…….. 🙁

The RYK Modular M185 Sequencer is available to order again! The original inspiration for the Metropolis & Metropolix sequencers, and a great choice for interactive “playable” sequencing that won’t break the bank!

RYK Modular Matttech Modular 05.03.21

It’s always exciting when we can support UK-based brands in our store, and we’re pleased to have RYK Modular back in stock, with their wonderful M185 Sequencer. This is an extremely intuitive and playable pitch & gate sequencer, with 8 unique gate modes for creative rhythmic possibilities, A/B split mode for two separate sequences, 2 channels of CV/GATE and MIDI I/O, plus 15 Quantise scales OR pure analogue microtonal CV output.

Future Sound Systems MTX9 now in stock in both PASSIVE and ACTIVE versions… plus lot of other FSS gear including OSC2, VAC1, MAKROW & the entire GRISTLEIZER range

Future Sound Systems Matttech Modular 21.01.22

It’s hard to keep on top of the myriad of products available these days, but some of the more interesting designs emit from the darkened rooms of Bristol’s Future Sound Systems. Their MTX9 PIN MATRIX has proved a popular choice for folk who want to add some Synthi-style pin matrix patching to their systems – and we’ve had so many people asking to purchase the active buffer upgrade board that we’ve decided to stock the pre-assembled active version of the module (the MTX9A) alongside the passive one. This adds unity mixing and buffered splitting for more precise voltage distribution.

We are also aiming to keep many of their other designs in stock again, especially the popular GRISTLEIZER modules – a range designed in collaboration with Chris Carter from Throbbing Gristle, and based on a unit they used extensively on both their live and recorded output.

Other highlights from our FSS range include:

  • The intensely patchable OSC2 “Recombination Engine” – a triple analogue voltage-controlled oscillator Eurorack module with a focus on a novel wave-splicing technique.
  • MAKROW – developed with Daniel Miller of MUTE Records – is a modular patch macro-controller, designed with live performance in mind. It allows for dramatic control sweeps & massive sounding patch changes, all at the turn of a single knob.
  • POCA VAC1 – a completely passive quad Lowpass Gate module, with selectable VCA mode
  • …and if it’s a space-efficient, low cost 4 channel mixer in 4hp you’re after…the MX1 has you covered!

DivKid restock in da house! OCHD 8-channel LFO & RND STEP 3-channel dual sample & hold both back in stock …plus new DivKid Blanking Panels!

DivKid Matttech Modular 25.08.20-min

The super-popular DivKid OCHD is back in stock again! 8 all-analogue LFOs in a convenient 4HP package, designed & manufactured by Instruo. Superb value for money, and extremely spcae-efficient.

We also finally have another limited restock of another offspring from the mind of our man DivKid – the RND STEP, designed in collaboration with Steady State Fate. This is a 3-channel dual sample & hold which can be employed in a whole host of ways (see the excellent video below)

Not only that…but with 2021 coming to an end, what better way to celebrate than with a Double-Sided DivKid Eurorack Blanking Panel? You could even hang it from your Xmas tree, should you feel the urge…

  • Side 1: Large swarm of WHITE DivKid logo heads
  • Side 2: Single GOLD DivKid logo on one side, shadowed by multiple embossed black versions

“Let’s get stuck in”


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!


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

RND STEP:

RND STEP is a high performance, 3-channel sample & hold module, comprised of 6 separate Noise / S&H circuits in just 4HP. It features internal normalising between trigger inputs; extended hold times with high sustained-voltage precision; audio processing for creative analogue downsampling effects; plus audio rate-triggered downsampled / clocked noise tones.

There have never been more challenging times to be bringing out new products than right now, and DivKid has played a major part of the growth in modular over the last decade, so I hope you’ll join me in supporting his latest venture! Big-ups to SSF and the distributors for getting plenty of these into our hands.

StarLab is a single module that will completely transform your modular rack.

Development for StarLab began with one goal in mind: to provide the highest quality reverb possible for modular systems, perfectly tuned for immersive electronic soundscapes with a high degree of flexibility and creative control.

The seemingly simple idea of allowing the pre-delay signal to be fed directly to the module’s output led to the development of rich sounding delay, chorus, and flanger effects, all of which can be used together with or independent of the reverb.

While experimenting with short delay times using feedback and filtering, we began finding very musical and expressive Karplus-Strong string synthesis sounds, and realized that StarLab could move beyond signal processing and become a truly unique voice module as well.
All this ultimately resulted in the creation of a module that is equal parts reverb, delay/modulation, and playable instrument.
