New Synthrotek Octave Fuzz Eurorack Synth Module

Synthrotek Octave Fuzz Eurorack Synth Module Demo Video

Published on Nov 17, 2016 synthrotek

"The Octave Fuzz is our take on the classic 70's SuperFuzz circuit, made into a Eurorack module. We've also improved on some aspects of the original as well, including an increased output.

-Two distinct voices like the original-switchable between scooped midrange, massive midrange bump.

-Agressive sounding. It will sound massive and in-your-face like no other circuit can. This is for sonic explorers and heavy music only. In short, it's not useful for EVERYTHING, but the things it DOES do it excels at. Sounds especially killer for keyboard and bass sounds.


- Scoop switch for a 'scooped' mirange, or to have a midrange boost.

- CV input over the Expander part of the circuit (similar to gain)

- True wet/dry mix.

- 6hp

- 35mm (1 3/8") Deep

Current Draw:

24mA @ -12v

32mA @ +12v

0mA @ +5v"

New Analogue Solutions Polygene Poly MIDI Converter Eurorack Module Teaser

Published on Nov 15, 2016 rezfilter

"Polygene is a eurorack polyphonic MIDI to CV converter – 4 voice output that can be used to play your CV synths / modules as a 4 voice polysynth.

Why Do I need this MODULE? What’s So Special?

Simple to use, it’s the perfect way to have MIDI control over 4 CV synths, to play together as one poly synth.

Connect to 4 mono synths, e.g. Analogue Solutions Nyborg
Or, connect to Eurorack modules set up as 4 synth voices.

The Arpeggiator has no nonsense operation harking back to the days of early Roland synths such as the Jupiter 8 and SH101.

The Arpeggiator can also be used as a simple 16 note step sequencer. The arpeggiator also plays back the velocity amount that was used.

The Arpeggiator will control CV synths, but the note info is also sent to the MIDI Out socket as MIDI notes, so you can have it play a MIDI synth."

Erica Synths - PICO DSP *first patch*

Published on Nov 15, 2016 DivKidVideo

New Befaco VC ADSR Eurorack Module

Published on Nov 14, 2016 Befacosynth

via Befaco

"We are happy to announce that from 16th November we will have available our brand new module: VC ADSR

The VC ADSR is our take on the classic ADSR: now smaller, more powerful and user friendly.

You can see detailed information here.

This compact unit features voltage control for each stage with manual faders to improve usability, feel and aesthetics.

A unique feature of the VC ADSR is the gate outputs for each stage of the envelope offering an extra level of control over your patch!

Envelope generation can be triggered and controlled with the use of the panel mounted push button or with the trigger/gate input.
Control of the response curve between each stage of the envelope (from linear to logarithmic/exponential) is provided by a potentiometer.

For in-depth information on the module take a look to our user Manual and Demo Video.

Price will be 95€ for the Kit and 160€ for assembled version. See features video. [above]

ADSR is the first module that will come with our brand new Knurlies. A screw specially designed for eurorack to make re-arranging of your case a matter of minutes! [pictured below]

Knurlies are sold in 100pcs bags at a price of 30€"

AI003 Looping Envelope Generator DIY Synth Module

Published on Nov 13, 2016 AI Synthesis

"A product demo of the AI003 Looping Envelope Generator DIY Synthesizer Module"

"The AI003 Looping ADSR Envelope Generator DIY Kit is a looping ADSR Envelope Generator. It can be manually triggered via Momentary Push Button, Gated via the Gate Signal, Triggered or re-triggered by a Trigger input, or set into a loop mode via a toggle switch. An LED shows the status of the output.

This Looping ADSR Envelope Generator DIY Kit circuit was derived (with permission) from the great and simple circuit (only 2 ICs!) from Nicolas on the forums. With some help from the great Dave Brown, the circuit was updated to provide additional voltage protection, more uniform looping and gate behavior, more precise LED monitoring, and some nice user experience updates.

In Gate or Trigger mode, the envelope can be used as a traditional ADSR envelope generator. In loop mode, the output sends a variable exponential waveshape between Ramp, Triangle, and Sawtooth LFO with control over the attack and decay of the LFO shape.

The modes are dependent on whether or not the gate jack is inserted, and for triggers, the Sustain level – see the chart below. We will be releasing a more traditional ADSR with 'normal' gating functions shortly (but with twice the part count and no AD loop)."

SYINSI Euclidean Polyrhythm Generator Eurorack Module

Published on Nov 9, 2016 THX2112

"A demonstration of a Euclidean polyrhythm module for Eurorack. Based on the "Tombola Euclidean" module.

In this demo an Alesis DM5 drum trigger brain is being triggered by the Euclidean running on its internal clock. All drum sounds are stock Alesis DM5 samples.

Euclidean trigger 1 out is going to the kick, offbeat (triggers whenever trigger 1 isn't being triggered) is going to the snare.

Triggers 2 and 3 are triggering the low and high toms.

It's available as a PCB/Panel kit:

or complete module:

More neat stuff:"

"A version of the “Tombola Euclidean Polyrhythm Generator”.

Feed it a clock signal and it generates four rhythmically-related triggers because math.

The first trigger also has an “offbeat” that is triggered whenever the first trigger isn’t being triggered. Works great on kick/snare or closed/open hats.

Four trigger outs including an “offbeat” for the first trigger.

New Eurorack Format Moog Clone Modules from AION Modular & Mini System

Above is the AION Modular eurorack system based on clones of vintage Moog modules. Below are details on the four new modules from AION Modular. Click through for details on prior modules featured in the system above.

The AION Modular 904C Filter Coupler is an Eurorack clone of the classic Moog™ Modular 904C.

The 904C Filter Coupler connects the 904A Lowpass and the 904B Highpass together to produce a Bandpass or a Band Reject filter response.

Bandwidth can be extended to three octaves and Center Frequency ranges from 5Hz to 20KHz. Both can be controlled manually or via control voltage.

The 904C provides a wide variety of signal processing and we strongly encourage experimentation but we advise to start with the following settings:

904A Fixed Control Voltage +6
904A Frequency Range 2
904B Fixed Control Voltage -1
904B Frequency Range LOW

The 904A and the 904B are required to use the 904C.
In the "OFF" position, the 904A and 904B are disconnected from the 904C an can be used independently.

The connection cables are provided with the module.

Power: +12 (30mA), -12 (15mA)
Depth: 20mm
Doepfer compatible.

PRICE: 240€
