Instruoducing: Instruō - àradh and tágh

Additional videos below.

"Announcement time!

Here are two new old modules :) I have been trying to get these in production for quite some time now. Delays in supply chain forced these to the background for too long.

àradh is a new take on a transistor ladder filter and fills the role of fat "East" Coast subtractive filter as well as adding a dedicated low-pass gate (LPG) to the Instruō range. Plus some other quirks!

tágh is not a V2 but is in fact the OG module that I had in mind for the name a long time ago. It's a 4HP powerhouse of modulation sources and clock utilities.

Please check out the full Overview videos for both àradh and tágh now :) [below]

In addition I would like to introduce the first production range of Instruō spacer panels. Available now are 1HP, 2HP, 4HP, 6HP, 8HP, 10HP, 12HP and a very special limited run of 14HP.

The 14HP panel features a glorious picture of my Greyhound Winston wearing his jammies.
"GAL is a registered charity in Scotland (SC031027) that rescues and rehomes Greyhounds and Lurchers throughout Scotland. "
A donation of £7.50 will be made to GAL for every panel sold from the limited batch.

Hope to see you all at Superbooth this year!

Instruō - àradh Overview

Here is the àradh.
tràigh again!

By popular demand – an exciting new take on the legendary transistor ladder filter. Introducing the Instruō àradh, the long-awaited successor to the first Instruō low pass filter, tràigh. Expanding on tràigh’s classic functionality, àradh adds a VCA with pre or post-filter routing options, an envelope follower, a comparator gate, a strike input with variable decay time, and a plethora of user-definable voltage-controlled parameter combinations.

Whether you’re looking for voltage-controlled resonance, pre-gain filter saturation, noise gate functionality, dynamics processing, or even an envelope follower, àradh can get the job done – a true sound-shaping powerhouse in only 6 HP.

• Low pass filter and VCA
• VCA pre/post-filter routing options
• Strike input and button
• User-defined CV input
• Envelope follower and comparator functionality
• Self-oscillating resonance

Instruō - tágh Overview

You can find the initial overview video from back in 2021 here, and a few user videos in additional posts here.

"This is a module I've wanted to release for years!

The Instruō tágh is a “Swiss Army Knife” modulation source. It features an analogue sample and hold, white noise generator, digital random voltage generator, morphing LFO, and probabilistic trigger generator, all with a unique phase-adaptive tap tempo functionality.

After many iterations of random voltage generation experiments, tágh’s 6 algorithms were meticulously curated to meet the needs of the designer. Once realised, it was quick to see its importance in small and big systems alike. These 6 random algorithms include Classic Stepped Random, Repeatable Stepped Random, Chaos, LFO, Probability-Synced LFO, and Downsampled LFO.

At only 4 HP, tágh is a true modulation workhorse.

• Analogue sample and hold
• Analogue white noise generator
• Six digital random voltage algorithms
• Built-in bias and attenuation controls
• Smart tap tempo follower with manual button
• Steady and rhythmically-relevant clock generator
• Internal or external clock options of analogue sample and hold
