Oct Tone, Plasma Voice, Algo and friends


video upload by Molten Music Technology

"I'm working towards my review of the Oct Tone and thought I'd capture this little sequence. It features the Plasma Voice and Algo competing on the melody, plus the Mandrake kick, Crust snare and something of my own fiddling with the effects."

Malstrom ARKAN / dual ringmod VCA with variable curve / smart voltage utility hub


video upload by BRiES

"This video is all about the features of ARKAN, a dual voltage polarizer by Malstrom. ARKAN is a two channel four quadrant multiplier (bipolar vca or ring modulator) with built-in amplification, clipping, ofsetting, inversion, ... and a variable curve response (linear - exponential). It can be used to clip, scale, attenuate, reshape, mix or straight up mangle the stuff you send through one of it's several inputs."

Schlappi Engineering THREE BODY / first patch / hell yeah


video upload by BRiES

"After being held hostage for over 2 weeks THREE BODY is finally here.

This is a first test minutes after taking it out of the box. Just ace. I love it when modules are self explanatory, yet take some deep understanding to get to the bottom of it (aka instant satisfaction but a lot of room for abuse and exploration).

Schlappi Engineering surely did a terrific job with this one.

Featuring MANDRAKE by Malstrom Audio for kicks, ORBIT 3 by Joranalogue Audio Design for the snare and hats and CHORUS 6 by Soundforce for some tempo synced stereo movement of those hats (aided by Dual LFO)."

Malstrom ARKAN / versatile dual vca / first patch


video upload by BRiES

"ARKAN by Malstrom has just arrived this morning, so it's way too soon for a deep dive, but the perfect moment for a first patch clip of this dual VCA with a few tricks (offset or bias, linear/exponential response, saturation, ... ) up its sleeves."

Can this eurorack module take care off all your utility needs? - with Arkan / Malstrom


video upload by

"Utilities are often overlooked. But things like mixing, attenuating, inverting, and adding offset are what makes patches great. Today we take a closer look at Arkan from Malstrom. A module that can tackle all the basics, but adds voltage controlled polarizing to the mix. So, it can be used as a regular VCA, VC inverter and ring modulator as well. Beside that it can gain or boost signals into distortion or wave shaping. And it can do all that twice.

Timetable:

03:41 – Overview – Modulation
06:13 – CV Patches
15:55 – Audio patches



Malstrom's Arkan is a two-channel bipolar VCA that is perfect for modifying control voltage signals and features a curvature parameter that adjusts the shape of the CV in a new way. While it excels at controlling voltage, the Arkan can be used as a unipolar VCA to control audio signals. When using the VCA at audio rates, you can dial in great sounding ring mod sounds and with channel 1 normalized to channel 2, plus the ability to chain multiple units together, rich modulation networks are easily created with minimal input. A built-in bias lets you control the offset for waveshaping and adjust how much of an additional signal gets mixed in or inverted. Grab an Arkan from Malstom and take control of your CV in creative ways.


ARKAN FEATURES

2-channel bi-polar VCA
Symmetrical signal boost up to 4x for gnarly audio and CV waveshaping
Asymmetrical bias waveshaping
Invert switch for each input
CV Input curvature lets you shape the signal and enhance the 0V attenuation
Chain multiple together with rear linking cables
Outputs are normalled
