Laniakea - Solo Dronebox


video upload by Uncertain Music Corps

"Really just scraping the surface of some of the things this intriguing oscillator can deliver by way of an initial demo. There will be others later I imagine.

To be clear, this is just the module on its own, recorded direct to camera. The FX aid is just being used as a convenient master level control. No external effect is in use.

Essentially this is a wavetable oscillator combined with a modal resonator and a decent reverb. But that doesn't really do justice to the world of sounds you can get out of it. This isn't a first run out. I've had it for about a week now and it's taken time to get to grips with its interface and some of its more obvious quirks.

The big knob is a kind of macro controller. You can set which parameters it will control and their depth/range. It's doing fairly subtle things here, modulating 3 different parameters simultaneously. I'm also using the dedicated pots at the same time.

The wavetable in use is not the factory standard one. Wavetables are in the familiar, open source format supported by WaveEdit app. They are easily swapped using an online app at the makers website via a USB C connector on the back of the circuit board. Keen eyes will notice I've got a cable installed as standard which saves time taking the module out of the rack just to update it and also reduces stress on the USB connector.

It's not an oscillator for everyone. But I think its a keeper for me."

Magerit KAIROS - The master controller - New Release


video upload by Magerit

Not to be confused with the Arcaico Kairos.

"The purpose of KAIROS is to control and direct your Eurorack using waveforms, functions, clock signals, and MIDI-to-CV converters. Do you need a sequence of trigger signals for your drums? Done. How about automating a VCF? Of course. What if you want to do polyphony? It is also possible! Well, but it is necessary... We've got you covered; it's also possible with KAIROS. And since there are 8 independent outputs with 12-bit resolution, there is more control for your Eurorack!"

KAIROS, Greek god of the opportune moment, is a concept that represents a moment when circumstances are suitable for making important decisions or achieving a specific goal. In life, if we choose correctly at the right moment, we can have a positive impact and achieve our goals more effectively. Applying this idea, we present a master controller for Eurorack that allows you to adjust and control all the other modules at the right time to create a unique and coherent sound experience, giving way to creativity and experimentation: KAIROS.

Control your music

Shapes and more shapes

Shapes and more shapes

We have designed several algorithms that allow us to generate almost any wave in a very simple way. Starting from basic shapes such as pulses, sines, triangles, clocks, Bézier curves... we can transform them by applying various modifiers: tilt, phase, delay, smoothing, quantization, offset, and many more. We have even included a crossover mode with various types of mixes.

Time to sequence!

All waves are played rhythmically. KAIROS includes an innovative hybrid step-euclidean sequencer. The best of both sequencers in one, allowing you to do really crazy things. What if we give it one more twist? In each step of the sequence you can even introduce 2, 3 or 4 microsteps, as if they were eighth notes, eighth triplet notes and sixteenth notes. Now we can make really interesting patterns. Ratios, directions... and those are not all the functions it has.

A powerful UI

What stands out the most about this module is its generous circular full-color screen with a resolution of 240x240 pixels. The module interface has been carefully developed to take advantage of the circular design of the display. In this way, the aesthetics are much more pleasant, intuitive and with everything you need at a glance. Forget about having a hundred submenus with a thousand hidden parameters.

A bit more

KAIROS is easily controlled using the two encoders and buttons, but it is also possible to add small automations to the sequencer thanks to its CV input. Designed in Alcorcón, Madrid, by David Vijuesca and José Vijuesca.

Metro2023 | Day 06 | Magerit Laniakea & Metro - Starter Kit


video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"The Laniakea has been my personal surprise of 2022, but Magerit also has a drum module called Metro. The module sounds amazing, but there's still a tiny quirk with the clock sync which makes you slow down and go in launge mode. Not a bad thing for a Friday Night jam!"
