"WARHORSE is the analogue multi-effect made in collaboration with the Italian underground techno label SCUDERIA.

Available in limited edition eurorack module or in pedal format.

Assembled in THT technology with passive welded “point-to-point” components, composed of VCA, VCF, distortion and delay all connected internally.

The input section features an integrated VCA with the addition of a distortion circuit.

The VCF section is inspired by Wasp multi-mode filter (LP-BP-HP-Notch): the two inputs allow to control the frequency with positive and negative voltages.

The DELAY section is a digital/analogue hybrid that reproduces the classic vintage BBD/Echo tape delay.
The delay time range goes from 0.05ms to 1.1sec.

The CV control of the delay time gives the possibility to create unpredictable repetitions, while the loop on/off button loops the last repetition. The feedback is characterized by a control knob that gives the possibility to darken or lighten the repetitions.

The WARHORSE pedal version is self powered and includes an extra bypass button plus additional in/out jack connections to interface it with external instruments or integrate it in your pedal setup."


"GORGONE is the analogue multi-effect in eurorack format, built in THT technology with passive welded “point-to-point” components, composed of 4 sections (VCA, VCF, distortion, delay) connected internally and also usable separately.

The input section is composed of an integrated VCA with the addition of a booster.

HPG (High Pass Gate): by activating the switch, the higher frequencies are cut as the input volume of the distortion increases.
The VCF section features a 12dB / oct SteinerParker multi-mode filter (LP-BP-HP) with a resonance range ranging from 160 / 170Hz to 2.8 / 3.0Khz.

The CV control on the frequency and the resonance that allows the self-oscillation give the possibility to use the filter also as VCO.

The DISTORTION section is inspired by the MXR M-104 distortion: the cv control on the DRIVE and an output amplifier allow high levels of distortion without loss of volume.

The DELAY section is a digital / analogue hybrid that reproduces the classic Vintage BBD / ECHO TAPE delay.
Delay time: min 0.05ms and max 1.1 sec.

The CV control on the delay time gives the possibility to create unpredictable repetitions, while the loop on / off switch “freezes” and loops the last repetition. The feedback is characterized by a switch that gives the possibility to darken or lighten the repetitions."


INVICTUS

QUAD FUNCTION GENERATOR

The Invictus Quad Function Generator comprises four function generators organized in two pairs. All four generators can operate independently or can be linked in pairs to generate more complex output voltages.
A switch selects one of three modes: Cycle, AR (Attack/Release), ASR (Attack/Sustain/Release).

Upon receiving a pulse, a generator’s output voltage ramps up to 10V at a rate determined by the sum of an applied control voltage and the setting of the attack time knob.
Impulse can be given manually using the trigger buttons or externally via the corresponding input jack. When in ASR mode, the voltage will stay high as long as the input pulse is maintained; when not in the ASR mode, or when the input pulse terminates, the output ramps down to 0V at a rate determined by the sum of the decay voltage and the setting of the decay knob.
At the end of the Decay segment, a transient pulse appears at the pulse output.

The time range for both Attack and Decay is from 0,01 to 59 minutes.
In the Quadrature mode, generators A and B (or C and D) operate in tandem with their functions shifted by ninety degrees in relation to each other.

RAVERB

VCA > REVERB > DISTORTION

Reverb in eurorack format inspired by the infamous Reverberation Machine, built in THT technology with passive welded “point-to-point” components, characterized by a VCA input and a post reverb distortion.

The input section is controlled by an integrated VCA. The TONE switch darkens or lightens the signal. The Decay, controlled in CV, through LDR resistor allows to create a large reverb: increasing the Decay to maximum level the feedback extends to infinity. The GAIN control allows to saturate the post-reverb signal. The RAVE button short-circuits the IN and OUT of the module, so as to obtain an infinite and self-regenerative feedback, creating auto-oscillation of the effect.
