NEW Erica Synths PICO DRUM 2 back in stock! Full digital drum & percussion synthesis in only 3hp

Erica Synths Matttech Modular 03.06.20-min

The original PICO DRUMS from Erica Synths was a hugely-popular module for us, offering 2 channels of sampled drums with various voltage control options. Now they have followed it up with the new PICO DRUM 2 – which offers full digital drum & percussion synthesis in only 3hp, with 8 drum synthesis algorithms, 1v/oct tracking, 3 parameters per algorithm & extensive CV control.

The first batch flew out fast, so we restocked sharpish – and in the meantime our good friend DivKid put together a lovely video, which you can find below.

We also restocked a few other items from the bigger brothers in the Erica range – BLACK HOLE DSP 2, SAMPLE DRUM, BLACK WAVETABLE VCO, plus a unit we haven’t had before – the BLACK MIDI-CV v.2 – perfect for anyone looking for a no-fuss, easy-to-use duophonic MIDI-CV converter.

There are also various end-of-line modules which are heavily-discounted in our *SALE* section – 8-CHANNEL SEQUENTIAL SWITCH, BLACK VC EG & EXPANDER, BLACK DUAL VCF & more..

New Shakmat Modular modules in stock: GEMINI’S PATH, CLOCK O’PAWN, SUMDIF & HIPASS …plus TIME WIZARD restocked.

Shakmat Modular Matttech Modular 06.03.20-min

It’s been a while since we had a restock from Belgian brand Shakmat Modular, and they have released a few new modules in the meantime…so here goes!

In addition to restocking the popular TIME WIZARD Six Channel Clock Divider/ Multiplier, we have the following recent releases in stock (some in very limited quantities though!)

  • GEMINI’S PATH – a very handy module to control the dynamics of two signals or mess with the stereo image. 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 !
  • CLOCK O’PAWN – a useful clock sourcing device that performs as your system’s true “chef d’orchestre”. Its transport section lets you start, stop, and reset connected instruments which are synchronised to an intuitive internal clock source or dancing along with your analogue and MIDI equipment. If you get bored by a metronomous clock, turn up the swing function and the maestro will lead with a nice shuffled feel.
  • SUMDIF – a dual adder/differentiator module capable of handling both CV and audio signals. Numerous applications, like unity mixing, buffering and inverting, can be achieved; you can also experiment with Mid/Side audio processing ! The SumDif has a precision signal path and can process V/oct signals perfectly. The two jumpers on the back side allow to reduce the A+B and A-B outputs gain by 6dB.
  • HIPASS – a 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. Use them to process the main stereo output from your modular system and remove non-audible signals that limit your headroom! The bottom two sections are 3-pole filters cutting at 100Hz. They are designed to work exactly like the low-cut sections on your favourite mixing desk.

TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock: 15 modes, VC-Switching, Internal FM, VCA & more..

TubeOhm Matttech Modular 19.02.19

Super-excited to have some fully-assembled units of the TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock – one of the most intriguing and unique designs we’ve seen in a while.

It is based on the SMR4mk.II filter circuit, and offers the 15 different filter modes of the 4-Pole MISSION VCF (both originally available for Mutable Instruments’ Shruthi Synthesizer)

It has the ability to switch filter modes under voltage control – along with a unique “internal FM” option which further adds to the available timbres by applying audio rate modulation to the cutoff point. This produces an alternate “dirtier” tone for each of the filter types.

We have tried this filter out in person, and can wholeheartedly recommend it – in fact,  Its basic sound is clean, clear and possesses a beautifully “liquidy” squelchy vibe – similar to the Doepfer a105 or Tiptop z2040 at times – but you’re not stuck with a single Lowpass mode. However, when you apply the internal FM it turns into a totally different beast, becoming a lot more aggressive and gnarly. In addition, when you take into account all the 15 modes it is hard to imagine a wider range of filtering in 10hp. Check the video below for examples!

Usually only available in (a rather complicated) kit form, these are lovingly assembled in Germany by the designer himself – Andre Laska 🙂

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE

Features:

  • Multimode 4-pole Voltage Controlled Filter with self-oscillation
  • 15 filter types with voltage controlled switching & LED matrix display
  • Onboard VCA
  • Outputs for VCF direct and also via VCA
  • Internal FM feature
  • CV inputs for Resonance, VCA Gain, Cutoff & 1v/oct
  • 20 Hz – 22kHz (Res 24dB)
  • Max signal amp input 5V p
  • Modulation: ext. 0-10 v

Bastl Instruments standalone units now in stock

Bastl Instruments Matttech Modular 15.11.19-min

Bastl Instruments have a wide range of interesting & unique Eurorack modules …but they also deal in quirky standalone units, often with their own onboard patchbays for further experimentation. While we usually focus on modules, we do occasionally venture into standalone units if they are sufficiently intriguing – and these certainly fit the bill!

Currently we have the following in stock (and more will follow soon): THYME, SOFTPOP, BITRANGER and KLIK


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!


  • THYME – An effects processor that is best described as a sequence-able robot operated digital tape machine. With a lot of parameters at hand it enables the exploration of all the time based effects and the vast space in between their classical multi-effects categories (delay, phaser, reverb, chorus, pitch shifter, multi-tap delay, tape delay, tremolo, vibrato, compressor) and in stereo!
  • SOFTPOP – A playfully organic, semi-modular light and sound synthesizer designed by Peter Edwards a.k.a. Casper Electronics. It can produce a wide variety of sounds: from random dripping water pops to heavy subtractive basslines. Its fully analog core consisting of a heavily feedbacked system of dual triangle-core oscillators, state variable filter and sample and hold is played through an intuitive interface of 6 faders that provide countless combinations which can be explored by anyone. It can also process external audio thru the filter while using the envelope follower to intuitively synchronise to the incoming signal.
  • BITRANGER – A patchable analog logic computer which sculpts sonic worlds ranging from data noise to melodic arpeggios. While being a handheld standalone synth it is also right at home in the music studio. Extensive connectivity makes it so flexible that it can connect to almost anything: CV control its unique sound, sync it with drum machines and sequencers or use it as an algorithmic CV / GATE pattern generator.
  • KLICK – A synchronisation device that enables you to make analog, rock solid sync signals from your computer and your HW synths. The KLIK revives the old-school sync technique of using an audio track for synchronisation purposes. Record your synths exactly on the grid into your DAW while compensating for the latency of your sound card. Jam really tight between your computer and your HW and add groove to your clock.
