NEW DIVKID MODULE // 'RND STEP' with Steady State Fate // 6 High performance Sample & Holds!


"Here we have the new (third) DivKid Eurorack module made in collaboration with Steady State Fate. RND STEP is 6 high performance analogue sample and holds split across 3 channels in 4HP. There's 6 analogue pink noise generators, unipolar and bipolar outputs, high accuracy sampling, long hold time, trigger normalisation for lots of stepped modulation from single triggers, audio rate performance for downsampling and modulated noise tones. I'll leave the video to do the talking and as always I hope the video provides you with lots of ideas to apply to your own systems too.

DivKid Ochd w/ Manis Iteritas | LFO Chaos

Published on Dec 29, 2019 Nostalgic Ruckus

"Been waiting for something like this for the skiff. Luv my clock dividers and multipliers and this kinda does it with LFOs. Cranking that rate knob is a beautiful thing. The Manis with all the patch cables is being modulated by Ochd only. The other Manis output is plugged into the E440 filter to tame some unwanted harmonics but also add some resonance when Ochd gapes the envelope. Attenuating Ochd's outputs with Bored Brain Splix. The CV input on this thing is crazy cool when self patching it just didn’t do it on this patch."

Announcement NEW DIVKID EURORACK MODULE // Meet ochd made with Instruo

Published on Dec 18, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Hello hello, here's my second eurorack module øchd or ochd. It's pronounced "oct" as in octave or octuplet and as if by magic there's eight outputs on this module, an octuplet of analogue LFOs if you will. I often find I need more modulation, simple sources that will keep things moving and stop things getting repetitive. That’s why ochd was brought to life, to keep patches organically drifting and moving… and as it’s modular, we wanted an intuitive easy to use module with plenty of patchable tricks up it’s sleeves too!

ochd is a 4HP Eurorack module with eight analogue triangle LFOs. The outputs go from fast on the top output to slow on the bottom output. The default ranges are deliberate NOT synced. These are free running LFOs that were tuned by ear to be musical useful for a range of fast to slow modulations in a patch. Organic animation, drifting and musical phasing is the intention of the module. The rate control controls the rate of all LFOs globally and takes this into lower audio rates right down to 25 minute cycles on the lowest output. This can be extended even slower with CV, with the CV input and attenuverter on board and we can also track and hold the outputs with a negative CV, interrupting and holding modulation values with external gates of CVs. Another trick to take this from simple triangle shapes is to patch a spare output into the CV input and wave shape with feedback. Exponential curves, odd squares, stepped waveforms and more are available with some adjustment of the attenuverter and using different outputs to voltage control itself.

While patching a prototype at DivKid HQ Richard Devine said this was "the most organic little modulator ever" - lovely stuff!"

Molten Modular DIY 05 - DivKid Mutes

Published on Feb 19, 2019 Molten Music Technology

"Here's a full build of the DivKid Mutes module kit as supplied by Befaco and Not many components, not many instructions but I'll take you through it and fill in all the holes. In the end you get an instantly usable, performance transforming, wicked little module for muting things in and out with lovely vactrol based switches.

Mutes - the First DivKid Eurorack Module

Published on Feb 15, 2019 DivKidVideo

We have a new (and familiar) maker in town. :) Congrats to DivKid! I added a new DivKid maker label to the site. Don't miss the interview with BoBeats further below.

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** So here we have it, the FIRST DivKid Eurorack module. It's been a long journey (and and on / off casual one to start with) since I first drew up a rough idea and panel design for this years back but this super simple, but highly effective little module (if I do say so myself) is finally released! Now I'm not a circuit designer or manufacturer, which is why this took some time. But more recently I worked with Befaco to bring this to life so I'm proud to say that although this is a DivKid module the PCBs say "powered by Befaco" on them. There's tonnes of potential ways to patch and make use of this and nothing will make me happier than to see the module living in peoples systems for a long time. This is available as a DIY kit or PCB/panel as well as assembled. Check the link below for more information.

**CORRECTION** This is available as a FULL DIY KIT or PCB/Panel combo not a partial kit as I say at the end of the video.
