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.

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!

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…

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

DivKid restock in da house! OCHD 8-channel LFO and RND STEP 3-channel dual sample & hold both back in stock

DivKid Matttech Modular 25.08.20-min

The highly sought-after DivKid OCHD is back in stock finally! 8 all-analogue LFOs in a convenient 4HP package, designed & manufactured by Instruo. Last couple of batches sold out EXTREMELY fast…

We also have a limited restock of another offspring from the mind of our man DivKid – the RND STEP, designed in collaboration with Steady State Fate. This is a 3-channel dual sample & hold which can be employed in a whole host of ways (see the excellent video below)


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!


OCHD:

Well Ben “DivKid” Wilson has done it again! After the HUGE success of his MUTES module – developed with Befaco – he has teamed up with Scottish brand Instruo this time round to produce the OCHD. This nifty unit packs 8 all-analogue LFOs into a convenient 4HP package.

Richard Devine described it as “the most organic little modulator ever”….and that is the idea: add a ton of natural, free-flowing modulation to your system in one go – all with a master Rate control that can itself be CV-controlled. Nice

RND STEP:

RND STEP is a high performance, 3-channel sample & hold module, comprised of 6 separate Noise / S&H circuits in just 4HP. It features internal normalising between trigger inputs; extended hold times with high sustained-voltage precision; audio processing for creative analogue downsampling effects; plus audio rate-triggered downsampled / clocked noise tones.

There have never been more challenging times to be bringing out new products than right now, and DivKid has played a major part of the growth in modular over the last decade, so I hope you’ll join me in supporting his latest venture! Big-ups to SSF and the distributors for getting plenty of these into our hands.

New DESMODUS VERSIO Reverb/FX module from Noise Engineering back in stock ..plus restocks of RUINA distortion range, MIMETIC DIGITALIS, CLEP DIAZ, BASIMILUS, LOQUELIC, VOX DIGITALIS – you name it!

Noise Engineering Matttech Modular 18.08.20-min

Now, when Noise Engineering announce an EFFECTS module it’s time to get verrrrrry excited! About a minute into the demo video we were, like, “YES PLEASE!!!!”. As with their VCOs & drums (Loquelic Iteritas, Basimilus Iteritas Alter etc..) they don’t do things by halves and usually – in addition to covering the intended purpose and functionality of a particular design – they add in a whole host of tweaks and features that allow it to be pushed into a far wider range of sonic territory. You look at the description and it says “reverb”, but then you realise it can turn into a howling, droning textural sound bed over the course of a single knob turn. The LOQUELIC ITERITAS is exactly like this, and with DESMODUS VERSIO they have finally taken aim at the FX market….and we’re extremely impressed. In stock right now, in both BLACK & SILVER panels.

In addition, check this out: “Not only is DV a unique reverb, it’s a stereo DSP platform. A simple USB connection will allow you to update DV to a variety of future effects firmwares. Open-source support will be released near the end of the year, too, which will allow you to write your own firmware!”

Hmmmmmm…


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


OTHER RESTOCKS:

We now have most of the RUINAs back in stock, including the VIOL RUINA – an all-analog distortion and lowpass filter with an internal envelope follower and self-modulating cutoff. This is Noise Engineering’s very first filter, and has proved very popular.

We have also procured stock of various other Noise Engineering modules, including the CLEP DIAZ (Small and handy step CV, Random and LFO generator), SINC BUCINA (Noise Engineering’s take on a flexible lowpass gate design), MIMETIC DIGITALIS (a mash-up of the Voltage Block & Rene sequencers) and the VOX DIGITALIS (space-saving, no fuss sequencer).

Obviously, we have made sure that the two previous standouts from the range are back on the shelves: LOQUELIC ITERITAS (Digital Oscillator with 2 Inter-related VCOs) and BASIMILUS ITERITAS ALTER (Self-Contained Digital Drum Synthesizer).

Most of these are in stock in both BLACK & SILVER panels, but limited units of each…so, as always, you know what to do… 😉

New brand alert! Cosmotronic modules now in stock: COSMIX Stereo Mixer & DELTA-V rev2 Dual Function Generator/VCA

Cosmotronic Matttech Modular 07.09.20-min

There are a lot of new brands in the Eurorack scene these days, but certain ones definitely stand out – and Cosmotronic are one such brand. Their recent COSMIX stereo mixer has caused quite a stir, and features 8 channels (4 mono, 2 stereo) on faders, along with a pre/post Aux send, panning ….and a dual band maximizer/ drive circuit. Not too pricey either!

We also loved the idea of the original incarnation of their DELTA-V dual function generator , which offered all the features commonly found in such designs – envelopes, LFOs, slew limiting etc.. – and somehow squeezed all of this into only 10hp …and even managed to include 2 integrated VCAs! The original design would likely have been a bit of a “Personal” taste – featuring whacky swirls of colours – but they have refined their aesthetic considerably with the rev.2 redesign, along with adding a new SUM output. Tidy!

  • TIME WARP – Dual channel, gated slew module with two modes of symmetry and a full wave rectifier on the input. It can function as 2 independent Slews, two A/R Envelopes with tied controls, or even as an envelope follower, taking audio and turning it into a useful envelope signal.

We have also topped up our WMD/SSF range – a collaboration between WMD and Steady State Fate – and if you’ve ever been tempted by these modules, now is the time to grab them as this range is being gradually phased out.

The Expert Sleepers DISTING mk.4 is back in stock! This truly is “the gift that keeps on giving” – with each new firmware update adding something new to play with!
Everybody should have a DISTING in their rig…and judging by sales, it seems like everybody has! I know for a fact that many folk have MORE than one 🙂

EDIT: the evergreen ES-3 is also now back in stock – offering the ability to expand an ADAT Out-equipped audio interface into the modular realm, with 8 outputs that can be configured to carry whichever signals you choose!

REGARDING DISTING EX: All manufacturing, distribution & shipping of modules is severely hampered by Covd-19 and its attendant safe working restrictions – so we are still waiting for our first batch of DISTING EX (all preordered) – along with restocks of the ES-8, ES-9 & ES-3. Your continued patience is much appreciated1 🙂
Join the waitlist on the product page if you’re after any of these. A second batch of DISTING EX is on order, but not likely to arrive before July, so we are not taking preorders for those at present.

  • DISTING mk.4
  • DISTING mk.4 MIDI BREAKOUT
  • FH-2
  • FHX-8CV
  • FHX-8GT
