Shakmat announces new VCO and LFO at SUPBERBOOTH21

"Belgian manufacturer Shakmat presents two new modules at Superbooth 21 - their first VCO, the Banshee Set, and a quite peculiar modulation source called the Mod Medusa !

Banshee Set

The Banshee Set is a powerful 8hp analog VCO with varishape and thru zero FM/PM capabilities. The varishape output provides a continuously variable waveform morphing into a sine, a triangle, a saw and a square wave which are crossfaded with a sub octave generator. The triangle core of the VCO is normalized to the shape CV input which yields very peculiar waveforms. The Banshee proves to be a great companion for your FM duties as a carrier or as a modulator thanks to its thru zero FM / PM input and soft sync capabili- ties. The Banshee also serves as a flexible modula- tion source as it can go into LFO range !

Mod Medusa

In a simplistic way, The Mod Medusa could be described as an Euclidean LFO : it is an “algo-rhythmic” modulation source which produces variable period LFO signals synced to rhythmic patterns. Those patterns are generated by algorithms such as the euclidean one (famous for trigger sequences generation) and as other algorithms coming from the White and Knight's Gallop. Mod Medusa has 4 outputs generating 4 correlated LFOs, which give different “polyrhythms” feeling according to the chosen mode. Generated waveforms can be easily twisted thanks to the symmetry and waveform parameters which continuously morph the signal into different waveshapes. A very unique approach which leads to instantaneous and original results!

If you are making it to Superbooth, don't hesitate to come and say hello to our team at booth W380!"
