Pittsburgh Modular Crush Demos



"The Crush is an audio destroyer; a voltage controlled, all analog sound decimator. A sonic laser designed to shatter waveforms into a million pieces."

The Pittsburgh Crush module was originally announced in April as part of the Patch Box line of modular effects pedals.


"The latest addition to our exceptional line of eurorack format effects modules, the Crush is an audio destroyer; a voltage controlled, all analog sound decimator. A sonic laser designed to shatter waveforms into a million pieces.

Built around a custom, analog downsampling circuit, the sound of the Crush module is defined by two parameters, Sample Rate and Interpolation. Sample Rate assigns the sample timing, breaking down an audio source into ever-larger static chunks. The Interpolate switch attempts to rebuild the original waveform from the remaining pieces, imprinting a second layer of errors and unique artifacts on the output. The results are crushing.

The Crush wrecks audio without ever sounding harsh or thin. Compared to a digital bit crusher, the analog Crush sounds full and warm. Taking advantage of unlimited bit and sample rate resolutions, the Crush avoids lo-fi digital results by smoothly downsampling at infinite resolution.

An integrated voltage controlled mix cicuit allows the perfect amount of destruction to be added to the audio. Manually set the mix or use a control voltage to sweep from squeaky clean to completely crushed.

Availability, Price and More Information
The suggested retail price for the Crush module is $199 and it begins shipping to our dealers today. More information is available at pittsburghmodular.com/crush."
