Introducing Capt'n BIG-O and Mr. Phil Ter by Cre8audio

video upload by Patchwerks Seattle

In this video resident expert Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) shares Cre8audio's newest modules: Capt 'n BIG-O and Mr. Phil Ter. Capt'n BIG-O is a fully analog oscillator built from the ground up to sound uniquely warm and huge. The oscillator also sports a wavefolder and a drive circuit, both of which you can route external signals into. Mr Phil Ter is a classic transistor ladder filter with a built in VCA and envelope generator. Along with these two new modules Cre8audio also released a two tier all wood rack stand for their popular Nifty Cases.

Captn'n Big-O - analog VCO introduction and feature overview

"Captn'n Big-O is a 100% fully analog eurorack compatible VCO with wave shaping. In this video, Cre8audio partner Richard Nicol of Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers takes us all on a tour of Capt'n Big-O's features and provides a few samples of how it sounds."

"What if your filter module also had a VCA and an envelope generator? Would a name like Mr. Phil Ter be a good name for it? Probably not right? Well, we at Cre8audio never claimed to be marketing geniuses (except for our jerk marketing person, but we rarely listen to them).

Anyway, check out Mr. Phil Ter, or 'Phil' as we affectionately call it. It's 12hp of filter, VCA, and envelope generator for all your sound manipulation needs."

Cre8audio BigEARS for NiftyCASE

"Introducing this fantastic miracle of science! That's right, 2 pieces of nice wood (birch) made specifically to stack 2 Cre8audio NiftyCASES together for double your Nifty pleasure!

NiftyCASE BigEARS are made specifically for NiftyCASE, a powered eurorack compatible modular synthesizer case with built-in MIDI to CV conversion made by Cre8audio. It's Nifty!"

"This pre-order is estimated to arrive July 15, 2021

Do you like analog waveforms? Well, we do. We also apparently like short sentences. Anyway, Capt’n Big-O is for people who like (or want to like) big massive analog sounds, just like the one’s mom used to make. You know what we mean, 100% analog components, no oscillator on a chip here…. Fresh and warm, right out of our mom’s synthesizer oven.

Our annoying marketing person won’t let us get away without saying a bunch more so here goes.

The Capt’n was designed in partnership with the very serious folks at Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers. When we told them that we needed them to cram as much big analog waviness as possible in a voltage-controlled oscillator module, they looked at us seriously and said in a very serious voice, “what the $%*@ are you talking about?” They then promptly hung up. We figured that would be the last we heard from them, but much to our surprise we received a text message later that evening asking if we wanted one of their famous wave folders and a highfalutin newfangled drive circuit they just dreamed up too….. Of course, we do! (who wouldn’t)

And thus the Capt’n was born."

"This pre-order is expected to arrive July 15, 2021.

Mr. Phil Ter isn’t the smartest name for a module that has an envelope generator, VCA, and a filter in it. Well, we never claimed to be smart.

Mr. Phil Ter, or Phil as we affectionately call it, is a module that does a whole bunch of analog and digital stuff, in not a lot of HP.

Phil’s digital bits are solely comprised of the envelope generator, for your envelopy pleasure.

The analog bits, developed in partnership with the ultra-serious folks at Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers (a very serious synthesizer company) and are comprised of a voltage controlled amplifier circuit (VCA) as well as an extra juicy old-school transistor ladder filter, perfect for those of you who are not afraid of ladders or transistors. (personally, we’re terrified of them).

Anyway, pair Mr. Phil Ter up with any oscillator or crank up its own filter section’s resonance and self-oscillate, get crazy. He’s just what the doctor ordered to complete (or not) any synthesizer voice."

"BigEARS, they’re a slick way to put 2 NiftyCASES together and make a Nifty Stack for double your NiftyCASE fun. These are not to be confused with the kid down the block we grew up next to that some of the kids poked fun at. We always thought they were cool, probably had perfect pitch or something. Lucky jerks. Anyway, our BigEARS are made out of real wood, not flesh because that would be kinda gross.

NiftyCASEs not included"
