Schreibmaschine is bringing a range of Eurorack modules to market focusing on playing with pulses using forms of analog computational logic and fabulous colours.
I haven’t got very deep into logic in the Eurorack space myself and so I feel a little bit out of my depth here, but if this is your thing then these look amazing. I’m enjoying the colours and I’m always a fan of the open-source and DIY vibe – even if I don’t fully understand it.
Schreibmaschine has 7 new modules at the show and I’ll start with the very cute sequencers which I do understand. There are three and they each have an odd number of steps and the simplest of interfaces. Seq 3, Seq 5 and Seq 7 are in the 1U format with sliders to set the pitch of each step. They have a clock input and a pitch output – that’s it! They just look brilliant and the use of odd numbers will seriously mess up the dullness of even sequences.
It’s an Omni Logic Gate that takes 8 inputs and generates all the classic logical outcomes. The outputs are dynamic which mean they take into account how many inputs are plugged in and change accordingly. It also has a Majority/Minority gate which is a new one for me. It can also operate as an expansion to modules like the Turing Machine. There’s also a Binary Expander that adds 8 outputs to the Brainiac.
This is 8 independent pulse wave oscillators that can be audio rate or LFOs. Each oscillator has a frequency control, pulse width modulation and an output. It can be used for drones or for driving logic modules.
More to come
Schreibmaschine has a lot more modules planned and these ones are just a taste of what’s possible from this Berlin instrument builder. You can check the modules out in booth Z240.
