Haken Audio Introduces EaganMatrix Eurorack Module

EaganMatrix Eurorack Module bagpipe-like demo video upload by HakenAudio

"Edmund Eagan patched together this bagpipe-like sound in our hut at Superbooth21. The sound is made by the EaganMatrix module, with notes coming from both the keyboard (via usb-midi connection) and the ContinuuMini (via Evaton micoCVC connection), and control input from MakeNoise Math module."

Integrate the power of EaganMatrix Sound Technology into your Eurorack! The EaganMatrix Module is a full-featured EaganMatrix Sound Engine for Eurorack, and can be controlled by control voltages and/or Midi. This versatile module can act as a sound source, a sound processor, a CV source (via connection to an external Control Voltage Converter), a Midi source, or a customizable combination of all these capabilities.

The EaganMatrix Module provides a truly versatile framework for both studio and live performance. Flexibility is key, due to its audio inputs and outputs, integrated CV inputs, external CV outputs (via Control Voltage Converter), and robust implementation of MPE and MPE+ Midi.

A single EaganMatrix Preset can give completely different sonic results, depending on how it is patched into a particular Eurorack ecosystem. Hundreds of System Presets are included with the EaganMatrix Module. In addition, an external cross-platform (Mac and PC) Haken Editor may be connected to modify and customize the supplied EaganMatrix System Presets, or create completely new presets from scratch.

The EaganMatrix Sound Technology, originally created for the gesturally highly sensitive Continuum, is now available to you in a Eurorack module. The EaganMatrix Module will quickly become a 'goto' component in your modular sound design and sonic composition.

EaganMatrix Eurorack Module — Now Available for Pre-Order — M2x $799.00

Haken Audio’s EaganMatrix Module offers:

Polyphony: Nominal 1, Maximum 8
Direct CV note control is limited to 1 voice at a time, but higher polyphony avoids voice stealing when EaganMatrix presets have long decays, and higher polyphony is often useful for Midi input.

4 Per-note CV Inputs: W, X, Y, Z

Gate (W) — Triggers at 1V, with max range -10V to +10V

Pitch (X) — 1V per octave, with programmable offset for Middle C

Timbre (Y) — Function depends on EaganMatrix preset; voltage ranges 0..5V, -5..+5V, or 0..10V, with programmable offset

Loudness (Z) — 0..5V, -5..+5V, or 0..10V, with programmable offset

4 Global CV Inputs: i, ii, iii, iv
Functionality depends on EaganMatrix preset; these CV affect all voices (notes from WXYZ and Midi); each global CV has selectable voltage range 0..5V, -5..+5V, or 0..10V, and programmable offset

2 Analog Audio Inputs: Left and Right, or Mono

2 Analog Audio Outputs: Left and Right, or Mono Sum
-12dB switch selects between Eurorack Level and Line Level

Midi over USB
Allows bidirectional MPE and MPE+ connection to other devices; allows connection to the Haken Editor for editing and archiving EaganMatrix presets (USB-A cable included with purchase)

Universal 3.5mm Midi In (Type A, Type B, and TS)
Allows connection to other Midi devices without need of computer or USB (adapter to 5-pin DIN Midi In included with purchase)

Type B 3.5mm Midi Out
Allows connection to other Midi devices without need of computer or USB (adapter to 5-pin DIN Midi Out included with purchase)

i2c Port for Communication to the Control Voltage Converter
(a switch selects between 3.5mm Midi Out and i2c functionality)

12 Switches, 1 Rotary, and LED Matrix
A menu system allows stand-alone operation without need of computer, and provides monitoring for notes being played and CV input levels
