Limited quantity of Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA lowpass gate just landed! …plus Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2

Sputnik Modular Vintage Synth Lab Matttech Modular 25.04.19-min

Well we weren’t expecting to ever see THIS vactrol-adorned badboy again! …but here it is – a final run of the excellent Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA. This module is a Buchla-inspired 4 channel lowpass gate with three different modes (VCA,VCF or COMBO/BOTH) which can be set on a per-channel basis. It features individual outs for each LPG, alongside internal mixing to 3 different sum outputs (ODD channels only, EVEN channels only, and ALL).

This was one of the first modules we stocked at Matttech Modular, and we loved it when we tested it out (see demos below, which sound just as good as we remember them!). We’ve had many customers ask whether there would ever be another run of them….and the answer has always been “no” – but here it is! No idea why these have suddenly appeared again. Maybe the manufacturer got sick of folk asking and did another run to shut them up 🙂

Likely to be the units ever available, so don’t hang about if you want one!


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


We have also topped up the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2. This has to be one of the most characterful filters we’ve ever come across – and immediately makes anything you put through it sound like it has been locked away up in the attic under dust sheets for several decades (that’s a GOOD thing, by the way). Where the Sputnik works its magic via the use of vactrols, this beauty uses a discrete diode filter circuit, inspired by the 1970s Univox Mini-Korg synthesizer’s “Traveler” filter section.

New in: Plankton Electronics NUTONE distortion, SPICE VCF & ENVF envelope follower

Plankton Electronics Matttech Modular 04.09.19-min

Wellll….Spanish brand Plankton Electronics have been busy! They released the SPICE standalone distortion/ mangler unit earlier this year via a successful Kickstarter campaign, and it has now spawned 3 offspring in Eurorack format:

  • NUTONE – Dual channel VCA and distortion, based on the new Korg Nutube vacuum fluorescent display
  • SPICE VCF – Voltage controlled filter, with a range of tones from rounded to distorted.
  • ENVF – an Envelope Follower in only 2HP. It will take an audio input and will output a DC output following the amplitude of the audio input.

In stock: Rossum LINNAEUS Stereo Thru-Zero State Variable Digital Filter

Rossum ELectro-Music Matttech Modular 28.08.19-min

We have just received our first batch of the latest intriguing product from Rossum Electro-Music – the LINNAEUS filter. This is a stereo state-variable digital filter with a unique ability to linearly modulate its resonant frequency through zero.

An alternate mode offers an alternative behaviour that would let LINNAEUS function as a self-contained (i.e., no input required) stereo oscillator and/or FM percussion voice with some really powerful timbral capabilities.

It has its own internal modulation oscillator, the ability to select different filter modes for the left & right channels, smooth morphing through all filter modes and much more…

More unique Bastl Instruments & Casper Electronics collaborations now in stock

Bastl Casper Matttech Modular 14.06.19-min

There are certain Bastl Instruments devices that just look intriguing from the first moment you set eyes on them – and it would appear that Peter Edwards (AKA Casper Electronics) has had a hand in many of them!

We have just restocked the insane DARK MATTER feedbacking mixer/distortion/mangler module…and decided to dip our toes into Bastl’s standalone instrument range – kicking off with the SOFTPOP and BITRANGER:

  • SOFTPOP – A playfully organic, semi-modular light & sound synthesizer which 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. It can also process external audio thru the filter while using the envelope follower to synchronise to the incoming signal.
  • BITRANGER – This is a patchable analog logic computer which sculpts sonic worlds ranging from data noise to melodic arpeggios. 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.

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


We have also added a ton of other Eurorack modules to our Bastl Instruments range – more on that soon! …but have a fish about and see if anything takes your fancy 🙂
