Odin’s wife, Frigg, was a paragon of beauty, love, fertility and fate and is apparently capable of +- 12 dB of gain in low and high bands of EQ. Bragi Modular release their first module.
She was the mighty queen of Asgard, a venerable Norse goddess, who was gifted with the power of divination, and yet, was surrounded by an air of secrecy. It’s an interesting choice of name for a parametric EQ but it certainly lends a Nordic vibe to Bragi Modular. They operate out of Denmark and are about “Modular Endeavours and viking raids” – nice! A viking helmet turns up on their faceplates and rather smartly on the knob caps as well.
The module is simple enough. You have a highpass filter with a selectable cutoff of 0, 80, 200 and 400 Hz followed by a high-band EQ ranging from 900Hz to 6kHz and a low-band EQ from 120Hz to 900Hz. Select your frequency and boost or attenuate as you see fit.
You don’t see a lot of EQ in Eurorack and so Frigg is very welcome and could be what you need to take an edge off or put an edge onto your audio. It’s available now for €80.
