From Ritual Electronics comes a 5x5 active matrix mixer for audio and CV mixing. Fabulous for complex waveforms and feedback patches.
Superbooth 22 was a huge success, full of a vast array of electronic music-making machines. Here's what caught my eye in new modules and Eurorack.
Hiding in the Bungalows was a Polyphonic Envelope from Verbos Electronics which can run 4 envelopes individually or in a cascade.
Front panel makers Grawart may have inadvertently leaked a forthcoming panel for an unannounced Dreadbox polyphonic synthesizer - is this the return of the Murmux?
Modular and instrument makers Eowave are building a 4-voice synthesizer called OSTILH for French artist Yann Tierson. The prototype was at Superbooth.
While Between Machines' KEEPER generated the most interest the QLOCKER algorithmic sequencer crept under the radar. Let's check it out.
Klavis is introducing the world's first granular voltage control filter. Grainity slices and reassembles filtered elements from incoming audio.
Tangible waves showed prototypes of their new micro-sized modules where you can fit three of them in the single AE Modular module space.
We had hints of these modules before the show but now there's a video of a prototype envelope module and a cascade filter for Eurorack.
Busy Circuits ASQ-1 sequencer was first captured in 2015 so is it for real this time? SH-101 style, super clacky keys, 2 channels and 4 triggers.
Finegear introduces the Dirt Magnet. It's a huge desktop effects box full of vintage analogue effects including a real Tape Delay.
We saw the Boubou drum voice a couple of years ago but now Quanalog has the Butterfly complex oscillator and a Binari sequencer.
Great news! The discontinued Erebus and Hades synths are being brought back to life as Eurorack compatible DIY Kits like the Dysmetria and Dysphonia.
Dysmetria is the DIY kit follow up to last year's Dysphonia. It's an analogue groove synthesizer with two oscillators, a sequencer and is in limited supply. Now with video!
Four new modules from Jolin Lab including a Quad Cross VCA, Ultra-Squarifier, Chained LFO and Optocoupler Filter with Distortion.
