Back in: Updated 2020 version of Mutable Instruments VEILS quad VCA & cascading mixer

Mutable Instruments Matttech Modular 08.10.20

VEILS 2020 is back in stock!

It’s always an exciting moment when a new Mutable Instruments module drops, and this time it’s the turn of their trusty VEILS quad VCA & cascading mixer to get a makeover. The 2020 version now offers the following tweaks & improvements:

  • More compact footprint (10-HP)
  • Sliders instead of knobs for the main gain/CV control.
  • When CV not used, that channel’s slider becomes a mixer-style level fader.
  • Gain indicator LEDs on sliders (plus output LEDs as before)
  • Positive offset control (0 to 8V) for direct use of bipolar modulation sources.
  • …. and best of all, it’s still super-affordable at only £159!

It’s finally here! Mutable Instruments BEADS – the successor to CLOUDS – a big pile in stock right now

Mutable Instruments Matttech Modular 15.02.21

Wellllll… it’s been VERY tricky keeping this one under our hat. We’ve had a big box of these sitting on the office floor for about 10 days now, and finally we can announce that BEADS – the successor to probably the most popular Eurorack module ever, Mutable Instruments’ CLOUDS, is here and ready to ship!

The concept is the same, live granular processing of an incoming audio signal, and the labels on the panel remain familiar…..but the similarities stop here. The hardware and software have been redesigned from the ground up, with several goals in mind: a crisper and broader sound palette, more control, better playability, and direct access to exciting new features.


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!


DOTTING THE I’S AND CROSSING THE T’S
Beads’ vastly improved specifications allow a higher audio quality, a longer buffer, the use of better interpolation and anti-aliasing algorithms, and key DSP blocks to run at a faster rate. Granulation can now get into new territories, such as formants, wavetables, hard-sync-like sounds, or crispy noise.

The range of parameters, their response to knob turns or modulations have all been refined, for new possibilities such as reverse playback or percussive envelopes.

CONTROL, CHAOS AND CHARACTER
Control. To trigger or schedule grains, Beads provides new features to divide or randomize an external clock or trigger stream, spray bursts of grains in response to a gate, or get the grain rate to track a V/O CV or the frequency of an external oscillator.

Chaos. Each key parameter of a grain comes with its own attenurandomizer. They allow direct CV control of a parameter, CV control of the random spread of this parameter, or internal randomization using some of Marbles’ algorithms.

Character. Beads provides four audio quality settings, which go well beyond buffer sample rate and bit-depth: they affect the clock of the converters, the amplitude limiting and saturation of the signal path, the tone of the reverb, and additional media-emulation effects. From a pristine digital device to a dirty cassette, through a mode reproducing some of Clouds’ characteristics.

MODES?
Beads can operate as a delay without the need to switch to a different mode: just ask it to play a never-ending grain. Its DENSITY, TIME and SEED controls are repurposed to allow various features such as tap-tempo, beat slicing, time-stretching, or comb-filtering at rates tracking V/O.

Without any audio input, Beads will granularize 8 internal banks of wavetables.

All parameters have a dedicated knob.

Audio acquisition:

  • Stereo I/O with automatic level detection.
  • Manual override of the level detection.
  • Automatic mono/stereo switching through patch cable detection.
  • Recording time: 4s (48kHz 16-bit, stereo) to 32s (24kHz µ-law, mono).
  • Four quality modes, with different tone and reverb characters: 48kHz 16-bit, 32kHz 12-bit with Clouds emulation, 24kHz 12-bit with a hi-fi dry signal path, 24kHz µ-law with cassette emulation
  • The FREEZE button and the gate input freezes the content of the recording buffer, allowing you to dive into its sonic details.
  • Auto-saving of the FREEZE buffer.

Granular synthesis:

Three grain generation modes:

  • Latched (continuous), with a periodic or randomized rate, tracking V/O.
  • Gated, with bursts of grains triggered by the press of the SEED button or an external gate.
  • Clocked, with randomization or division of an external clock or trigger signal.

Four grain parameters:

  • TIME. Temporal position within the buffer.
  • SIZE. Grain duration from 0.03 to 4 seconds, forward or backward playback.
  • SHAPE. Morphing between four key shapes of the grain envelope: solid rectangular, snappy decay, smooth bell, or reversed.
  • PITCH. With V/O tracking.

Attenurandomizers:

Available for each of the four parameters of a grain, sampled each time a grain is started:

  • Direct CV control.
  • CV control of the amount of gaussian randomization.
  • Internal randomization with an independent, uniform or peaky, random source.

Delay:

  • Control of both the base delay clock rate (DENSITY), and its multiplication (TIME), with optional random taps.
  • Tap tempo with the SEED button or an external signal.
  • Enveloping of delay repeats, with the SHAPE setting.
  • Pitch shifting of the delayed signal, controlled by PITCH.

Signal flow:

  • Feedback path delay: 1 sample.
  • Independent knobs for feedback, dry/wet amount, and reverb amount.
  • CV input assignable to each of these three parameters, or to variable combinations of them.
  • When unpatched, the R output jack is summed to the L output.
  • Optional generation of a gate signal on the R output.

Specifications:

  • All inputs: 100k impedance.
  • Audio codec: 24kHz, 32kHz or 48kHz, 24-bit.
  • 16-bit CV capture.
  • Processing rate: audio-rate for the SEED and FREEZE inputs, 4kHz for the CV inputs.
  • Latency: 0.25ms.
  • CV input range: +/- 8V for grain parameters, +/- 5V for density (with V/O tracking).
  • Internal processing: 32-bit floating point.

It’s all gone Worng!!! We now stock Aussie brand Worng Electronics, including new stereo PARALLAX VCF, VERTEX VCA & LRMSMSLR Mid/Side

Worng Electronics Matttech Modular 19.06.20-min

Even spelling the brand name is a challenge, as it’s always WORNG – let alone spelling their mid/side module, LRMSMSLR …but don’t let that put you off, as they offer some excellent products, especially when it comes to stereo processing.

In addition to the aforementioned LRMSRLMRSMLRMSMRSLSRM – which brings mid/side processing into Eurorack, and can also be used to produce sum/difference of audio or cv signals – we now have the new PARALLAX Stereo Filter and VERTEX Stereo VCA – each of which offer controls specifically aimed at stereo use (common controls for Left & Right sides, with options to “skew” the relationship between them if desired, in order to create stereo effects)

We’re hoping to have SOUNDSTAGE in stock too, so join the waitlist if you’re after one.

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

Euro Drums Modular Matttech 15.01.21

We’ve just received another restock of the wonderful VPME.de 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! 🙂

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 😉


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!


SARAJEWO

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

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.

Just landed: new Rossum Electro-Music MOB OF EMUS multichannel CV / sound source

Rossum Electro-Music Matttech Modular 16.11.20

Well Rossum Electro-Music have certainly won the prize for strangest module title of all time with their new MOB OF EMUS! This wild offering is a flexible music / sound design tool that gives you six channels of oscillators, noise sources, cyclical & 1-shot modulators, sample & holds, slow random modulators, triggers, rhythm patterns, and quantization (of both internal and external signals) in pretty much any combination.

Stock just landed – 4 units left as of today (27th November)


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!


Mob of Emus is a powerful music and sound design tool that packs an enormous amount of creative power into an amazingly compact 16HP module.

Mob of Emus gives you six channels of oscillators, noise sources, cyclical and 1-shot modulators (including LFOs, envelopes, and various other shapes), sample and hold waveshapes, slow random modulators, triggers, rhythm patterns, and quantization (of both internal and external signals) in pretty much any combination (well, any combination of six channels, anyway).

In addition to being able to independently program the function of each individual channel, Mob of Emus’ Hex Mode provides a macro control layer that allows you to control all of its channels simultaneously (while maintaining the relationships of each channel’s independent programming).

What’s more, Mob of Emus’ “harmonic” control structure makes it extremely easy to combine its oscillators into rich additive timbres, to combine its LFOs into stacked harmonic low frequency modulation waves, and to create modulation sources and triggers with intricate polyrhythmic patterns.

With an external trigger input, six CV inputs that can operate in six different control modes, six independent outputs, and an assignable mix output, Mob of Emus can operate as the heart of an almost unlimited variety of patches. And its 8 real-time controls will give you immediate hands-on access to a channel’s (or all six channels’) key parameters, inviting (and rewarding) exploration and improvisation.

Mob of Emus features include:

  • Six channels that can function independently or can be further controlled by a Hex Mode macro layer that lets you control all six simultaneously. Channels can be:
    • Wide-range digital oscillators
    • Noise sources
    • Cyclical and 1-shot modulators (including LFOs, envelopes, and various other shapes)
    • Sample and hold waveshapes
    • Slow random modulators
    • Triggers
    • Rhythm patterns
    • Quantizers (of both internal and external(!) signals)
  • Six CV inputs that can function in six different control modes
  • Eight real-time controls for immediate access to key channel parameters
  • Six individual channel outputs and an assignable mix output
  • The ability to store and recall 12 user presets
  • And much more…

Big After Later Audio restock just in, including new POPPLE Stereo Filter …plus DVCA, TEMPS UTILE, ALAN, STEPS, BLEND, TILT & much more…

After Later Audio Matttech Modular 05.11.20

We recently welcomed Seattle’s After Later Audio into the fold at Matttech Modular. Well-known for producing high-quality builds of open source projects such as ORNAMENT & CRIME and TEMPS UTILE, they caught our attention again recently on DivKid’s Youtube channel, where he showed off their new POPPLE Stereo Multimode Filter, based on the Open Source Mutable Instruments Ripples (v1) design. Probably the most affordable true stereo filter on the market…and it sounds great! (check the video evidence below…)

Another new module we’ve added this time round is the DVCA – a dual-channel, 4hp take on the Mutable Instruments VEILS VCA design. Again, a great idea!

DivKid also demoed their 3 most recent original designs: TILT, STEPS & BLEND. These all looked excellent – with a focus on providing maximum bang for your buck (and HP) – and took us to their website, where we discovered a whole host of other designs – most of which are now in stock.

Please note that at present we are only restocking many older products in very low quantities – often only 1 or 2 of each – so if you want something, don’t hang about. As a small shop, dealing with an ever-growing array of brands and products, it is impossible to offer a decent range without restricting the number of units we buy in “on spec”. Feel free to hit us up if there’s something you’re after though, as we may be able to get it in for you next time round 🙂

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

Joranalogue Matttech Modular 21.12.20

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….

We also have more units of their recent FOLD 6 wavefolder – which takes 2 different approaches to wavefolding and combines them in one space-efficient package. 2 simultaneous outputs, 2 inputs – with DC coupling so you can mix audio and CVs – and CV control over Folding and Shape.

We’ve also got limited units of every other module in the range – including COMPARE 2, MIX 3, GENERATE 3, CONTOUR 1, FILTER 8 & more…..so get stuck in! 🙂

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
