Bastl Instruments Introduces Neo Trinity Compact 6-channel Modulation Eurorack Module


video upload by

Press release follows:


We are thrilled to introduce our newest Eurorack module, Neo Trinity. It is a compact 6-channel modulation hub that combines knob and trigger recording, LFOs, CVs, and envelope generators. This module is a spiritual successor to our renowned hex modulation superhero, CV Trinity (released in 2016). Neo Trinity is designed with performance in mind, offering great musical complexity achievable with simple gestures. With Neo Trinity, building compact systems finally makes sense.

Ultimate automatable modulation hub

Each of the Neo Trinity ́s 6 channels can be either LFO, envelope generator, or a CV knob recorder, while their main parameter can be automated with the REC button.

Each channel also features a recordable trigger generator with an algorithmic fill feature to get the inspiration started or to make things polymetric and keep your patches ever-changing. Use the SHIFT button to change modulation shapes and sync selected or all channels to an internal or external clock.

Since Neo Trinity has been designed with performance in mind, it includes channel mutes and allows storing whole presets as banks.

Easy to control with complex possibilities

While the core mechanics of the module are very straightforward, the inclusion of assignable CV inputs exponentially increases the complexity of the module’s behavior. Control some or all channels in different ways with the META IN and utilize channels’ E and F dedicated inputs. The inputs can control the main parameter in a positive or inverted way, control the output amplitude, and act as an external trigger or a trigger for the internal Sample & Hold function. The CV knob recorder mode also acts as a quantizer, and when combined with the CV inputs, it turns into a handy voltage processor.

Neo Trinity will be released on January 11, 2024, 7pm CET, priced at €290 excluding VAT. Available from the Bastl Store and our retailers.

BONUS PATCH - Using Neo Trinity as a Drum Machine?!


video upload by Oscillator Sink

Follow-up to Bastl Introduces Neo Trinity - 6-Channel Compact Modulation Hub

"Here's a little bonus patch that I couldn't fit into my main video on the Neo Trinity, but I thought was worth sharing. This is a drum machine made out of Neo Trinity and 2 VCAs. The sequencing and all the sounds are being generated by Neo Trinity. The sounds are made by "abusing" LFO channels to run at audio-rate, so this is somewhat of an extension of the self-playing patch I showed in my main video.

Bastl Neo Trinity - A Modulation Mastermind?

video upload by Oscillator Sink

"Neo Trinity from Bastl is a module for generating control Voltage - which is the most generic description of a module I've ever made, but that's because it's a very flexible module which makes it hard to describe in a single sentence. It caters to your envelope, LFO, offset generation needs, but that's mixed in with a very “jammable” approach to sequencing and automation, that welcomes rapid iteration on a performance.

In this video my plan is to introduce Neo Trinity to you from an architectural standpoint, then try to give you a feel for its workflow by building up a patch through a few layers of complexity, while mixing in a few extra examples of patches I've been playing with as I've been exploring it.

"Outsidify allows you to manipulate and explore the sounds happening around your smartphone. The microphone and speaker of your phone are hiding exciting potential: create feedback, manipulate resonances, use your mouth as a resonant filter, capture the impulse responses of your coffee cup or the pipe at the construction site you're accidentally passing by. Just have fun. Your imagination is the only limit. Early electronic music was full of exploration of what you can do with just a microphone and speaker. Now it's your time to explore! Go outside and make sounds outside of your phone. What would you Outsidify?

Features
- create feedbacks from your phone´s microphone and speaker
- play sounds from the speaker and influence them with outside conditions
- the world is your resonator
- capture impulse responses of any space you can fit your phone into - anytime!"

Timber - Exploring Bastl's Most Underrated Module


video upload by Oscillator Sink

"Timber is a dual waveshaping module combining clipping and wave-folding circuits in a typically "Bastl Way" which combines some novel routing with utility that you wouldn't necessarily expect to find in a module of this type. It is also, in my opinion, Bastl's most underrated module as its ability to transform and animate a signal is huge considering its small size.

This video hopefully serves as half-video manual, half-sonic exploration of this module.

Transparency notice: the Basil module was provided to me by Bastl for free for the purposes of making content about it. I was not otherwise paid and Bastl did not request, nor were they given any editorial oversight."

Bastl Basil Delay Module - Video Manual and Patch Examples


video upload by Oscillator Sink

"Basil, from Bastl, is a stereo time-based effect module that runs on their Pizza platform (if you own a Pizza you can turn it into Basil via a firmware update).

It is, capable of traditional delay and echo sounds as you might expect, but through its wide ranging controls, CV, and a selection of parameters which modify the behavior of the two delay lines you can find chorus, flanging, comb filtering, pseudo reverbs, lo-fi effects and more - and all in stereo.

In this video I've aimed for the first part to act as a kind of video manual going over each of the features in turn. That's followed by a number of example patches which can hopefully show the module in context, showing some of its versatility.

Basil is a module with a lot of hidden depth, so this video is, predictably, pretty long. To help you navigate to the material you're interested in, I've added extensive chapter markers so feel free to jump around to find the info and sounds you're after.

Transparency notice: the Basil module was provided to me by Bastl for free for the purposes of making content about it. I was not otherwise paid and Bastl did not request, nor were they given any editorial oversight."
