Faselunare VEGA 4 Voice Eurorack Drum Module

You can find a SOUNDMIT preview demo posted back in March here.

"VEGA is the first module of the italian company Faselunare. Is a 6HP, 4 Voices drum module in Eurorack format. VEGA has 4 digital voices tailored for drum sounds, each voice works both in synthesis and with samples uploaded on the onboard SD card.

His unique color coded user interface, shrink the module at only 6HP, thanks to the RGB encoders, LEDs and buttons, you can access easily 12 parameters per voice, 5 presets and a very useful mute function for each voice.

VEGA has 4 Trigger inputs (one for each voice), 1 Random input which randomly triggers individual voices and a high quality audio output.


Here at FASELUNARE (Moon-phase in English), we have a passion for space and sci-fi, Francesco's Stage name has always been Urbanspaceman and together with Daniele he played and released some records as the "Space Aliens From Outer Space".

So that's why our projects have names inspired by science and science fiction!

If you look at an image of the Lyra constellation, you will notice that the 4 buttons of our module are positioned exactly like the 4 stars: Vega (α Lyrae, the brightest), γ Lyrae, β Lyrae and δ Lyrae."

4 Independent digital voices
Each voice consists of a digital oscillator with Sine/Square/Ramp/Noise waves or Sample source. The samples are loaded from the SD card on the panel.
12 Parameters per voice
The 4 voices are identical and have 12 parameters per voice: Pitch, Pitch Envelope, Cutoff, Filter Envelope, Attack, Release, Q, Low Pass / Band Pass, FM, FM Tune, Volume, Waveform
Dual mode filter
The filter can operate in Band Pass mode and Low Pass mode.
2 RGB Encoders
Thanks to the use of 2 RGB encoders, we have reduced the size of the module to only 6HP.
Color coded User Interface
Using 4 coloured LEDs, we have access to 6 pages of parameters, 2 for each page. Based on the color of the encoders, we will always know which parameters we are acting on.
5 Level Leds
5 LEDs placed diagonally that indicate the value of the selected parameter.
Performance muting
With a simple key combination you can mute the 4 voices individually to create build-ups and breaks without taking your hands off the rack.
Random Trigger
An additional trigger input allows the creation of random sequences.
Vega has 5 memory slots that can be used to store the settings of the 4 voices. User can create and store them on the SD card and recall on the fly.
