SUPERBOOTH 2024: 4ms - MetaModule

video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Dan Green from 4MS unveiled the highly anticipated MetaModule*, a groundbreaking module that brings virtual software patches to Eurorack hardware. Designed to merge the benefits of software and hardware, the *MetaModule features over 160 built-in modules, including popular offerings from Mutable Instruments and various third-party companies like Vogue Audio and Chowdhury DSP. It's possible to import further modules using the plug-in system, so the system can keep growing.

What sets the MetaModule apart is its ability to seamlessly integrate with VCV Rack*, a free open-source software platform for Eurorack virtual environments. Users can create patches on their computer and easily transfer them to the *MetaModule via SD card or USB stick, allowing for a versatile and tactile experience.

MetaModule Price: 649 USD"

The MetaModule from 4ms Company

You might remember the MetaModule from this previous post.

Press release follows:

The MetaModule puts real knobs and jacks on virtual software modules. It lets you step back from the computer and make music with hardware, while keeping all the benefits and flexibility of software plugins.

Ships with 165 Modules
The MetaModule is a eurorack module with over 160 built-in modules from 4ms Company, Befaco, HetrickCV, Nonlinearcircuits, and Eightfold, plus clones of popular classics such as the Mutable Instruments modules, fun physical modeling algorithms, and lots of handy utilities.
All of the included modules are also available on the computer using the free program VCV Rack. Whether you make patches on VCV Rack and transfer them to the MetaModule, or if you just create patches directly on the MetaModule, there are plenty of creative modules to inspire new ways to make music.

MetaModule Plugins
If the built-in module aren’t enough, you can load more modules as plugins. Already there are over 200 modules in third-party plugins from Bogaudio, Valley, ChowDSP, NANO Modular, and the list is growing.
We have an SDK available to make it easy for VCV Rack plugin developers to convert their plugin to a MetaModule plugin. Our licensing terms are non-restrictive: developers are welcome to distribute their plugin in any way they wish, commercially or not.

Mapping Knobs and Jacks
The MetaModule has 12 knobs that can be mapped to virtual knobs. Each knob can be mapped to up eight virtual knobs, and each mapping can have a different range and offset. You also can save a group of mappings as a Knob Set and switch between Knob Sets with the encoder. You also can map the 8 inputs and 8 outputs to virtual module jacks.
Also, the MetaModule is a USB MIDI host, so you also can map MIDI CC, note, gate, and other parameters to knobs and jacks.

There are lots of ways to customize your MetaModule. A Wifi expander allows you to wirelessly transfer patches from your computer. Add eight more knobs with the Knob expander, or buttons with the Button expander. A CV/Audio expander adds more high-resolution inputs and outputs, and the Gate In/Out expander adds not only gate jacks but also TRS MIDI and I2C.

Under the Hood
There are six CV/Audio inputs, two gate inputs, and six CV/Audio outputs. The CV/Audio jacks are all 24-bit, 48kHz DC-coupled, -10V to +10V. A USB-C jack accepts MIDI devices and thumb drives. Patches and plugins can be loaded via a USB drive or SD Card, and internal flash memory lets you save patches you always want to come back to.

The processor is more advanced than anything 4ms has used yet, and is among the most powerful processors found in Eurorack. It uses a dual-core Cortex-A7 running at 800Mhz, with a Cortex-M4 co-processor. There is 512MB of fast DDR3 RAM. It runs bare-metal without an OS, so startup time and latency are blazingly fast.

Retail availability: August 27, 2024
Price: $649 (USD)

Five12 QV-L Quad Variable LFO

"Vector Sequencer, QV-L, nRings, Weston Precision Audio SF1, 4MS DLD

So really I am testing the ATEM MINI PRO and headset mic here. I think I got it close but when I started dialing the grit in using the LEVEL on the SF1 you can really hear it pushing (which is a good thing, but less good for video levels). This is fun."

Modular - complexe sequence

video upload by ALEQ Modular

"One way to build complexe sequences with modular:
- Multiple sequencers (here some Ritournelle CV Generator from LE)
- A Matrix mixer (the Attenuverter bank from LE too)
- Of course, some synth voices, here with the RYK Vector Wave.
- And to glue all together, a delay. The 4MS Dual Looping Delay

The goal is to route the sequences to the synth voices.
With the matrix, we can mix these sequences in real time. Inverting, adjusting the range etc.
And if all sequences have different clock division and number of steps, the result can be very complexe.
To stay in harmony, a quantizer is inserted between the matrix and the synth voices. here a Klavis CalTrans."
