Mutable Restocks – Shades, Yarns…and now Frames!

Mutable Instruments News 3.2

As part of an ongoing Mutable Instruments restock process, Shades and Yarns are now back in stock….joined by a newcomer: Frames.

Frames is another of those multi-faceted Mutable products that can perform many different functions, with its main one being a “Keyframe Mixer” – basically, it is a 4 channel mixer, which will let you store 4 different “snapshots” (frames) of its 4 channel levels, and morph between them under voltage control. But obviously the fun doesn’t stop there, as it can also be used as a 4 step sequencer, 4 channel attenuator, programmable CV generator, quadrature LFO, etc……

Keep an eye out for further Mutable restocks over the next month or so.

Erica Synths Black Range – Now in Stock!!

Erica News 2

We are proud to announce that a decent selection of the super-sexy Black Range from Erica Synths is now available to purchase! They are some of the best looking, and most ergonomically-designed modules I’ve seen in some time. If you’re a fan of the comfortable dimensions, and chunky feel of things like the Livewire AFG, then these could very well be the type of thing you would enjoy – both from a build quality perspective, and also from a musical and live performance standpoint.

We have the Digital Noise, Varishape VCO 1 & 2, Polivoks VCF, VC Clock, LFO and Output Module in stock.

I do believe that – at time of writing – Matttech Modular is the sole UK supplier of this range of products at present, and they are in very limited quantities – so what are you waiting for?? Get amongst it!!

New In! – Expert Sleepers FH-1 USB Fader Host

Expert Sleepers News 1

Many of you have been asking about the brand new FH-1 USB Fader Host from Expert Sleepers, so here it is! It will turn any “class compliant” USB controller into a centralised control surface for your modular synth. If you use a suitable interface box – such as the iConnectMIDI2+ – you could even use an iPad to directly control your synth.

An output expander is planned for later in the year – the FHX-1 – which will allow for up to 64 outputs.

To whet your appetite, here’s a video of it in action with the Launch Control XL

More videos and information can be found on the Expert Sleepers website HERE

Erica’s Coming to Stay

Erica Synths News 1.1

So who’s this intriguing young lady called Erica? Well….”She” is actually Girts Ozolins from Latvia, and he has been beavering away on his new line of modules – the ominously titled “Black Range”. I had the pleasure of trying some of these Erica Synths beauties out at Ben “DivKid” Wilson’s studio, and I must say I had a LOT of fun! I am especially excited about the two modules shown in this post – the Black Digital Noise and the Varishape VCO – but there are others on their way too.

These are serious, sturdy bits of kit which really look the part. ETA a week or so…

Pressure Drop! – Make Noise Restocks

Make Noise News 1.1

Some fast Make Noise sellers have been replenished: Maths (obviously..), MMG, and the bonkers Wogglebug. These have now been joined by the ever-popular Pressure Points touch-plate controller – along with its sequencer expander Brains.

Also joining the party is Maths’ younger brother, Function. This multi-functional masterpiece takes the already-flexible looping envelopes/ slews of Maths, and adds Sample & Hold, and Track & Hold into the picture.

Also in stock is the superb complex oscillator known as the DPO, and plinky-plonky heaven in the form of the Optomix!

Malekko Lands!

Malekko News 2.1

The first Malekko order has arrived, including the UK’s first units of their new Noise module, which gives you 2 different analogue noise sources, a digital one with VC timbre, and a very low frequency one to use as a CV source. All in 3HP!

As soon as I saw it I knew I’d have to stock it, as it basically covers a ton of functionality in a very small space.

Also, the Richter Oscillator and Anti-Oscillator are here (or “uncle” and auntie”, as Wigglers like to call them!), joined by the mega LPG Dual Borg. The final offering is the lovely dual VCA, which will give you some lovely “woody” tones. A VERY tasteful piece. Get stuck in!

Tiptop Tip-Off!

Tiptop Audio News 1

One manufacturer that was ALWAYS gonna be part of the roster here is Tiptop Audio. So much so, that I’m even branching out into sequencing as a result: the z8000 Matrix Sequencer, Trigger Riot and Circadian Rhythms are all on their way – as are the wonderful z2040 Prophet 5 lowpass filter, and the z4000 fully-voltage controlled ADSR.

A lot of people have requested Tiptop modules, so here they come!

Mutable Instruments – Streams Restock, plus Yarns & Grids!

Grids is back in town! The most instantly satisfying rhythmic module out there, producing interesting and evolving patterns within seconds. It’s like the “Braids of Rhythm”!!

Here’s a cheeky Video from Carl Golembeski to get you in the mood:

Also on the table is Yarns – an incredibly well-featured midi-cv solution, with onboard sequencing, LFOs and polyphonic modes. An excellent choice for those who’d prefer to sometimes work without a computer.

Streams sold out exceptionally fast, and has hence been restocked. Enjoy!

Frequency Central New Additions & Restocks

Frequency Central News 1.1

The Frequency Central line expands further, with the introduction of another product in the System X range, based on the Roland System 100m vintage modular. This time it’s the System X Filter – a juicy lowpass with THAT Roland sound in spades – joined by a re-up of the snappy-as-hell System X Envelope. These badboys FLY out, so get ’em while you can!

A further product enters the fray, and that is the Ultra Wave – a voltage controlled LFO with all the bells and whistles you could want. Based on the Electric Druid Tap LFO, it can sync to an incoming clock, and many of its functions can be modulated (waveform selection, Wave Distortion, Frequency division or multiplication. Can also be used as a Clock Divider/ Multiplier, and has an internal VCA for voltage control over its output level.

Sweet!

Mutable Instruments re-stocks – Streams, Branches, Shelves, and the Shelves Expander

Mutable Instruments News 1.1

Big news! Some of the most eagerly anticipated modules – for ME anyway! – have hit the store:

Streams – multipurpose module – LPG, Compressor, VCA/VCF – and TWO channels of it all.

Shelves – my personal favourite so far – fully voltage-controlled parametric EQ with 4 bands

…and get this! – the Expander turns it into TWO multimode filters, with LPF, BPF and HPF on each pair of outputs. ÂŁ49, and an amazing addition to Shelves.

Branches – this little fella has proved incredibly popular, for its ability to take simple clock streams and turn them into dancing, zigzagging bursts of random gates (under voltage control, naturally)

Get yours here before they sell out 🙂

Lift Off.

Matttech Math Birthday Cake 1

Hi All.

If you’re reading this, then that means ONE THING: the Matttech Modular website is finally live!

In order to make the transition into online ordering as smooth as possible, we will initially be selling only to UK-based customers, taking payments via either direct bank transfer or Paypal. Once the website has been up and running without issues for a little while, we will hopefully then move on to EU-based sales.

Our initial focus is on the various elements that make up a synth voice – oscillators, filters, lfos, envelopes etc.. – but we aim to expand into other areas such as sequencers and drum modules as the store develops. We will also be adding more manufacturers to our range as soon as humanly possible.

You can browse the store via Brand or Function category links, found within the sidebar on all pages (except the homepage).

Hope you like what you see, and feel free to contact me if anything doesn’t appear to be working properly – either via email, or on Facebook, Twitter or Muff Wiggler.

MASSIVE thanks to everyone who has helped and encouraged along the way – so many to mention it almost seems unfair to single anyone out, but special mention has to go to:

Steve @ Thonk Synth DIY

Ben “Hex” @ DivKid

Mike @ Muff WIggler

Ross @ Lamond Design

Simon @ London Modular

…along with all the other manufacturers I am distributing – who have given me the benefit of the doubt, and generally supported my fledgling operation! If you went especially out of your way, you know who you are, and it won’t be forgotten 🙂

Allan @ AJH Synth

Rick @ Frequency Central

Finlay @ Future Sound Systems

Justin @ Abstract Data

OS @ Expert Sleepers

Paul @ Krisp1 / Oakley

William @ WMDevices

Jason @ Manhattan Analog

Chris @ Audio Damage

Danjel @ Intellijel

Olivier @ Mutable Instruments

Tony @ Make Noise

Andrew @ Steady State Fate

Anna @ Darkplace Manufacturing (QuBit / Sputnik)

If any of the other manufacturers I approached initially are wondering why I haven’t put an order in with them yet, it is merely a matter of time/ sales, as I have had to set some strict limits on myself in terms of what I can offer from kick-off.

Hopefully I will be in touch soon!

Cheers

Matt
