Spanish modular makers Endorphin.es are usually terribly colourful. Lot’s of red, blue and yellow splash across the sun-kissed front panels of modules like Grand Terminal and Shuttle. But there’s been a change and it’s infected their entire online presence. All the iconic photos of their disconcertingly beautiful figurehead Guilia Bondar on the website have morphed into dark, perfectly lit greyscale that make you want to find something other than those eyes to look at. The reason for the change is their forthcoming BLCK_NOIR module that is going to be revealed at Superbooth in a couple of weeks.
So what can they tell us? Not a whole lot other than that they are very excited to present their new module at Superbooth 2018. It’s the first time they’ve used a black front panel and they are certainly going all out on that idea. They say “it’s black, it’s loud, it’s dark” and suggest that it’s ideally tuned for Darkwave and Techno. That’s a slightly odd thing to say, but I’m too out of touch to understand such things.
Can’t gain much from the video other that it’s quite a big module. There appear to be 7 buttons and patch sockets running along the bottom. There’s a “Cabin Pressure” knob not unlike the Grand Terminal. I spotted a CV input labelled “Flaps” which could mean all sorts of things in their aviation inspired labelling. There’s a lot of knobs packed into this thing.
All will be revealed at Booth O115 from the 3rd to the 5th of May 2018 at FEZ Berlin.
