It’s exactly what you think it is! You spin the fidget spinner and you get voltage oscillations out the other end for a colourful manually operated LFO.

Fidget Spinner Eurorack Module

From NoodleVolt comes a module that’ll keep your fingers busy and your filters buzzing with the ever-changing oscillations. The Fidget Spinner is mounted on the front of the module and spins against a guitar-style pickup which turns the magnetic movement into pulses of voltage. Give it a spin and you have instant modulation with the organic quality of gradually coming to a stop. You can spin it up into audio rate if you flick it hard enough.

There’s an attenuation knob to keep things under control and a CV input which is vactrol based for a bit of natural slew that’s added to the level of the knob. The knob also has a secondary function in that once you pass a certain threshold it will push the waveform from a rough sinewave into more of a square.

There’s not a whole lot more to say about it other than it offers some real involvement in the modulation of your system and I really enjoy the potential of keeping a number of them in the air at the same time while working a live performance. The video nicely demonstrates a few ideas past the usual filter cutoff sweeping.

This batch of Fidget Spinner LFOs are all custom-made and tested by hand at the base in South Pasadena and are available for just under £110 at the NoodleVolt Reverb Store.
