Create your own Eurorack Drum Machine with, Shakmat Modular, Erica Synths, SSF & more!

Euro Drums Modular Matttech 15.01.21

We’ve just received another restock of the wonderful QUAD DRUM VOICE drum synth/sampler module….which got us thinking about Eurorack drums, and associated modules.

Imagine the QUAD DRUM paired with, say, the funky FOUR BRICKS ROOK from Shakmat Modular (also in stock)  – basically, you’d have you own little – supremely flexible – drum machine at your fingertips, all within your Eurorack case. Tap in rhythms in real time, quantize them on the fly, add fills, and choose from an array of different drum sound options and algorithms. Get ON it! 😉

Also – the Shakmat TIME WIZARD could also make a great rhythmic companion for your QUAD DRUM – allowing for complex clock divisions/ multiplications and logic functions which you could either employ when using a steady clock – or try inputting more complex rhythms for some SERIOUS madness!

Too “digital” for you eh? …well try slamming it through the new Steady State Fate VORTICES character mixer  – modeled after vintage analog consoles and magnetic tape machines. How do you think top producers used to get that massive drum sound? …by hitting the red on the meters when recording to analogue tape, that’s what!

Still not enough drums for your kit? Add a couple of other cheeky little fellas, such as the 3hp Erica Synths PICO DRUMS or PICO DRUM 2 – the former offering a ton of classic high-quality sampled drums (with the optional PICO DRUM PROGRAMMER if you want to upload your own samples) – and the latter offering full digital drum synthesis (similar to the Korg Volca Drum), but with voltage control.

Fancy some FX? Lots of options to choose from, including the Erica Synths PICO DSP, BLACK HOLE DSP, DUAL FX (aimed specifically at drums) …or the more experimental Noise Engineering DESMODUS VERSIO, IMITOR VERSIO, QuBit PRISM, 2hp FREEZ, Tiptop Audio zDSP and many more – all shown by following this LINK

Think outside the box and get creative with your own personalised drum machine setup! 🙂 available HERE

  • QUAD DRUM VOICE – 4 independent digital drum voices in 22hp, each of which can be either a digitally modelled drum, a sample from a sample set, or a wavetable vco from a wavetable bank.
  • FOUR BRICKS ROOK – Quad Trigger Sequencer, with Input Pads, Fill Randomizer, Pattern Store/Recall, CV-Addressable Memory, Quantized or Non-Quantized Operation
  • TIME WIZARD – Six Channel Clock Divider/ Multiplier, in Two Sections, with Additional Logic Functions
  • VORTICES – Character mixer modeled after vintage analog consoles and magnetic tape machines. Includes V-CV Expander, which adds level/saturation control for all attenuated mixer channels.
  • PICO DRUMS – Dual Drum/Sampler Module with 64 Samples, Pitch, Decay & Volume Control
  • PICO DRUM PROGRAMMER – If you wish to upload your own drum samples to the Erica Synths Pico DRUM module, you’ll need Pico DRUM programmer.
  • PICO DRUMS 2 – Percussion synthesizer in a 3 HP eurorack module, featuring 8 drum synthesis algorithms, 1v/oct tracking, 3 parameters per algorithm & extensive CV control

TWO new XAOC Devices modules in stock: SARAJEWO Syncable Analog Delay & KATOWICE Stereo Variable-band Isolator

XAOC Devices Matttech Modular 05.11.20

Batch 2 of the 2 new XAOC Devices has landed: The SARAJEWO Syncable Analog Delay & KATOWICE Stereo Variable-band Isolator are both back in stock, and are truly stunning bits of kit. Put it this way, if YOU don’t want them, I’ll certainly take one of each myself 😉



Sarajewo is an analog delay module based on old school (but newly manufactured) BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) chips. It features three delay taps, an external clock input with various tempo sync factors, and a wide range of settings controllable via CV.

It is based on high quality components with maximum effort put towards the highest sound quality possible, while still preserving the charm of the BBD technology. The module offers a clean and warm analog sound with tons of character and a comfortable user interface with a tap tempo button, signal level indicators, sync and CV inputs, four signal outputs, and an adjustable feedback filter.


Katowice is a stereo variable–band isolator that allows the user to manipulate a selected range of frequencies. It is the first module in a series of upcoming Xaoc Devices products designed specifically for processing stereo signals. Katowice splits the stereo input signal into three bands: low, middle, and high.

While the knobs and CV inputs define the centre frequency and bandwidth of the mid band, the low and high bands are automatically adjusted so that the sum of all three is a complete signal. All three bands are passed through high quality VCAs and their stereo outputs are available separately for further processing.

A stereo mixdown signal is also available. Katowice may be used as a crossover network, a parametric EQ, DJ-style kill filter, or other band-selective applications, including multiband compression and stereo enhancement.

Klavis Matttech Modular 30.12.20

Some tidy Klavis goodies have landed back at Matttech Modular, including batch 2 of their brand new, updated TWIN  WAVES mkII – a voltage-controlled Dual VCO/LFO with 20 Synthesis Algorithms, Thru Zero FM, Quantizer, Suboctave, Integrated VCA & more..

Also back in: FLEXSHAPER CV-controlled voltage mapper / waveshaper, QUADIGY Quad Envelope Generator, MIXWITCH Mixer & Switcher & LOGICA XT Voltage-controlled Logic and Gate Processor.

Update: We just received a batch of the CALTRANS Programmable V/oct CV calibrator and transposer, with additional semitone quantizer, portamento & glissando features.



  • 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.

BIG Noise Engineering shipment just landed, including new IMITOR VERSIO experimental delay restocks of DESMODUS VERSIO, MIMETIC DIGITALIS, BASIMILUS, LOQUELIC, RUINA range & much more…

Noise Engineering Matttech Modular 20.11.20

The new releases over the last few weeks have been relentless, and one of the more exciting announcements has been the new IMITOR VERSIO experimental multitap delay from Noise Engineering. Having turned heads recently with their DESMODUS VERSIO reverb/ “synthetic tail generator”, they have been beavering away on its delay equivalent. With 12 (yes, twelve!) delay taps and a load of parameters designed to make the delay perform in unfathomable ways, IMITOR VERSIO is perfect for creating unusual echoes, experimenting with different delay shapes and patterns, adding vintage flare to an atmosphere, and more..

You can also swap firmwares on the “VERSIO” series, so you can turn a delay into a reverb, and vice versa. Noise Engineering plan on releasing a whole host of additional firmwares, and have already put out the AMPLA VERSIO, which turns your module into an ADSR-controlled VCA and resonant multimode-filter gate, with a stereo bypassable chorus on top!

Find out more about the VERSIO range HERE


NOTE: IMITOR VERSIO (Silver) in stock, Black version just sold out. More soon!

In addition, we have the new SONO ABITUS high-quality output & headphones module, and the re-release of their popular HOROLOGIC SOLUM clock/ divider module.

We have also restocked the following (almost all in both Black & Silver faceplates):
