XAOC has 5 new modules on the way with extraordinary names and a wide range of functionality. From oscillating to frequency shifting and extensions to the Leibniz Binary SubSystem.
A gorgeously knobbed 1964 Stereo VC Frequency Shifter. Koszalin offers both quasi-exponential and linear frequency changes of up to +/-5kHz with full stereo feedback. It translates the signal spectrum generating atonal sounds as well as interesting harmonics. Consequently, it’s not about pitch shifting, this is far more complex and fascinating.
Really, it’s best experienced than talked about so let this short video give you an inkling of the sort of tones it can produce.
This is the 1955 Transcendent Waveform Analog Oscillator, which is undoubtedly an awesome description. The sound comes from a mixture of warm saturated bass tones and two modulating ripple elements. There’s plenty of scope for modulation and self-patching to introduce complex animation into the final output.
It’s an impressive looking module that feels complex just by looking at it.
The 1980 Triple Signal Summator is a very cool and compact mixer of multiple mono and stereo sources. Each of the three sections is independent with 4 into 1 mono at the top and bottom and 4 into 1 stereo in the middle. You can also feed the middle into either of the other two. It’s the sort of module that could very quickly sort out the destination of all your audio signals in the minimum of space while giving you just enough to keep things interesting.
Sopot is available now for €90.
Gera & Poczdam
If you’ve been keeping up with the Leibniz Binary Subsystem, you’ll love Gera & Poczdam. Gera allows for the masking of individual bits by the use of logical AND operations. On the other hand, Poczdam is more of a binary data routing solution. Got it? No, me neither.
But basically, Gera is about quantization and Poczdam is about reconfiguring data flow within complex Leibniz setups. Ok, I’ll shut up and roll the tape!
XAOC at Superbooth
XAOC are hanging out on booth Z420 at Superbooth this year. All these modules should be available in the summer. Koszalin is €330, Sofia is €490, Gera is €160, Poczdam is €210 and Sopot which I believe is already available for €90.
