"We spoke to Corry from ModBap at Superbooth 2024 about their new module, *CLRS*. This stereo module is designed as an end-of-chain processing unit with various performance features. With a DJ filter, drive, saturation, lo-fi, compressor, stereo widener, tape artifacts, and modulation options, Colors offers a wide range of creative possibilities for sound manipulation. The stereo in and out functionality adds to its versatility, making it a valuable addition to any modular setup.

CLRS is currently available for pre-order and is set to ship in June. Priced at $399 , this module falls in line with the rest of ModBap's range of modules. Corry emphasized the flexibility of CLRS, highlighting its ability to create unique textures and tones, whether you prefer a clean sound or want to push the boundaries of distortion."

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Nicolas from Soundforce at Superbooth 2024 about their latest releases. The first product he showcased was the Samples II module, a versatile sampler module offering five channels of playback at 16 bits, 44.1 kilohertz. With a USB connector for memory sticks, users can easily load and play back a variety of sounds with minimal latency. The Samples 2 module features various playback options, such as drum type playback, start and pause playback, and random sound selection, all accessible through a single switch interface. Additionally, the module includes a mix out option and the ability to change playback speed on one channel using the trigger input of the next one.

In addition to the Samples 2 module, Nicolas also demonstrated the *SFC-OB *Oberheim MIDI controller, designed for controlling Oberheim plugins with customizable plugin modes. This MIDI controller offers two-way communication with Arturia plugins, allowing for seamless preset and track switching. Users can have up to 10 tracks with their Oberheim plugins, with the controller automatically updating to match the selected plugin.

For more information on these products, including a 30-minute DivKid demo for the Samples II module, visit the Soundforce website for details."

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Five 12 Vector Sequencer MK2

video upload by sonicstate

"Jim from Five12 showcased the Mark II versions of the Vector sequencer and Expander . According to Jim, the hardware revision includes faster, newer chips while maintaining the essence of the original sequencer. The panel design remains almost identical, with the Expander now condensed to 8 HP from 12. The software sees updates to accommodate the new hardware and additional I.O. features, with continued support for Mark I devices. Notably, the new Expander is compatible with older sequencers, and vice versa.

The Vector Sequencer 2 has an intuitive digital sequencer interface with analog-style controls, offering versatile MIDI and CV I.O. for extensive customization.

Notable software enhancements include doubled preset space, expanded parameter options, and innovative chance operations to create dynamic, evolving sequences. The Vector Sequencer 2 is set to release in June, *priced at $759 US*, while the Expander will be available for $289 US.

CHAIR Analogue Waveguide Resonator - Gesprächskonzert SUPERBOOTH24

video upload by Superbooth Berlin

"In 1971, the congenial mathematician, quantum physicist and room acoustics expert Michael Gerzon published an article about a reverberation device. The device in question used a matrix operation to rotate two signals inside each other. He concludes in his article that it would be impossible to build the device using existing technology.

In this conversation concert, we present Gerzon's device, re-imagined as a resonator. Its complex analogue circuitry is based on two bucket-brigade delays and an analogue rotary operation. Thanks to this circuitry, our new Eurorack module produces rich harmonic and inharmonic spectra, creating physical and vivid sounds with astonishing depth and detail. For the first time, efficient physical modelling synthesis is possible in an analogue signal path, going beyond the usual harmonic string sounds and opening up fascinating new soundscapes. The Resonator offers a wealth of parameters, yet remains intuitively playable, inspiring audiences and performers alike."

FLAME Gesprächskonzert with Trovarsi - SUPERBOOTH24

video upload by Superbooth Berlin

The 8-channel rhythm sequencer and 8-track drum synthesizer were introduced last year here at Superbooth and this time you'll witness the raw power with a live showcase in the auditorium brought to you by LA-based techno-artist & YouTube host TROVARSI.

Vienna-based producer and long time Flame collaborator Felix Bergleiter will give you a brief overview of the modules - including one or the other 60 second jam - and of course answers any questions. You'll also get a glimpse of their brandnew modules (e.g. TON, a new melodic looper module), which are shown in detail at their booth in the Bungalow-Dorf."
