RV packs all sorts fun into 10 hp and introduces the DOOM button. DOOM is our scary version of a suboctave generator. We pulled some inspiration from the Pura Ruina and the Seca Ruina to add the fun.

The Press Release:

Noise Engineering expands growing Versio lineup with Ruina and Electus Versio

Los Angeles, California: Noise Engineering announces Ruina Versio and Electus Versio. Ruina Versio is a new stereo distortion encompassing a number of different distortion concepts, and Electus Versio is a clockable reverb/delay, inspired by the popular Desmodus Versio.

Ruina Versio is available as a dedicated module, or users can update any Versio module to the Ruina or Electus firmwares for free. Customers with any Versio module who wish to download alternate firmwares can make an account at the NE Customer Portal to download any existing Versio firmware to their modules for free.

Ruina Versio is a stereo distortion and effects module, and DSP platform. It includes the Noise Engineering infinifolder (featured on modules like the Basimilus Iteritas Alter), multiband drive and filtering, a phase control, full-wave rectification, a DOOM knob, and a Smoosh button that adds 128dB of gain to the input when pressed. Rearrange the internal signal chain and activate a notch filter with the flip of a switch. All knobs are CVable, and the distortion is stereo in and stereo out, meaning you can use it to process all your stereo modules in your system -- or, run a mono sound into it and use the effects to create stereo width.

Ruina Versio is also part of the Versio family. All Versio firmwares are cross-compatible: just log onto the Noise Engineering Customer Portal to swap any Versio product to any different firmware. There are currently five firmwares available, including delay, reverbs, distortion, and dynamics processing, with many more in the works.

Price: $345; free firmware download on Customer Portal for Versio owners; RV replacement panels $20
Availability: Ruina Versio available for download for Versio owners starting March 18th; hardware ships starting March 25

Electus Versio is a unique atmospheric creation tool: not quite a reverb and not quite a delay, it’s the more aggressive clocked counterpart to the popular Desmodus Versio. It shares most of the same controls with Desmodus, but adds a tap-tempo button, clock input and divider/multiplier, and a switch to choose between three delay structures. It runs the gamut from simple clocked delays to infinite distorted atmospheres and everything in between and beyond. Electus Versio will not be sold as a separate module, but Versio owners can download Electus now as an alternate firmware for free at the Customer Portal.

Price: Free firmware download on Customer Portal for any Versio product
Availability: Electus Versio is available for download for Versio owners starting March 18th.

The Ruina Versio made its first appearance on the 11th.

And a video from Perfect Circuit:

Noise Engineering Ruina Versio Eurorack Distortion w/ The Patch Pals

video by Perfect Circuit

"Jacob and Wes got their hands on a new eurorack module from Noise Engineering which is a stereo distortion called the Ruina Versio. The Versio modules all use the same hardware but different faceplates and firmwares so you can easily plug your Versio in and change what kind of effect it is. We also used the Desmodus and Imitor Versio in this video for delay and reverb effects.
