Lich is a DSP based Eurorack module that can run hundreds of community-made patches to become whatever you want it to be.
Befaco has got together with Rebel Technology to bring their OWL platform to a new DSP hardware module. The idea is that you can build whatever functionality you want into the module or you can simply enjoy the hundreds of patches that have already been made by the community.
Lich could become a reverb, an oscillator, a bit crusher, clock divider, EQ, delay, logic function, noise generator or whatever you can find or come up with. As a starting point Lich will ship with four preloaded patches: Reverb, Tap tempo Delay, Harmonic Oscillator and MIDI-to-CV. The module then offers up 4 CV controls, 2 CV outputs, 2 Gate inputs and 1 output, MIDI USB out and host and high-quality stereo audio inputs and outputs.
If you fancy creating your own functions then ut’s open-source and supports Pure Data, Faust, C++ and Max Gen compilers so you can write patches in your favourite language. Everything is there for you to invent your own module.
Check out the patch library here. Lich could be that missing piece of your modular that can morph into different roles depending on what you need.
Lich will be available from the 24th November as a kit for €170 or assembled for €300 ex VAT.
Befaco demonstrated it at their recent Modular Day live stream. I was there too!
