Cereal Instruments THUMP // Vactrol Based LPG & VCA with distortion (Eurorack module)

Note this is the first Cereal Instruments post on the site.

Their moduels are available on Reverb here.

"'thump' is a versatile vactrol LPG & VCA with distortion. 'Thump' allows you to send two signals through a gritty vactrol amp with low pass gate modes & plenty of gain pre & post distortion."

It's also available as a DIY kit. The following is the build video:

And an overview by DivKid:


"Here’s the new THUMP Eurorack module from Cereal Instruments. It’s a 6HP Vactrol based LPG / VCA with added distortion and character. A rotary switch let’s you select VCA mode and 3 increasingly steep filtering options. There’s two inputs with a crossfader, CV input for the gate level and a make up gain control. It distorts and adds a quirky character easily but backing off amp CV and gain lets you clean things up.
