Good looking GXN Granular Synthesis System from Mordax for sweeping grains and scrubbing samples. Hampered by a lacklustre demonstration but then this is a pre-production prototype.
The Manther Growl is a 26hp complete monosynth version of the desktop Manther. There's also a Quad Envelope, LFO and VCA, 4 channel drum synth and a Random module.
Squeezed into their tiny 2HP form factor Kick, Snare and Hat offer a lot of sound in a very small space. With CV control over each parameter and a mix of sound from expected and into the unknown.
A bunch of industry veterans have got together to produce what looks to be a virtual synthesis and sound processing environment. Voltage Modular will be revealed at NAMM. Here's our first glimpse!
The Korgasmatron appears to have evolved into the Morgasmatron while Planar and Rubicon get an updated version. Details are scarce at the moment but hopefully we'll have more for you soon.
In a quick Instagrammed video I spotted a prototype of an as yet unnamed Malekko module featuring 4 channels of wavetable drum with multiple character controls and 8 steps of motion recording.
Mimetic Digitalis is a 16-step 2-dimension CV sequencer with 4 outputs a trigger and "Shred" loads of randomisation. Noise Engineering also present some really cool utilities.
The Synapse is an 8 input crossfading into 4 channels of voltage controlled switching with integrated LFO, scatter and memory morphing. It's an interesting way to create texture from other sources.
Qu Bit overhaul their Nebulae granular sampling module and upgrade the engine, adding live recording and manual processing along with everything CV. There's too much fun to be had with this.
At NAMM this week Verbos will be showing their new Multi-Delay Processor. It's a voltage controlled 8-tap digital delay with "special tricks up its sleeve." Now with video!
Emerging from the thick fog of spectral band analysis of modulators and the re-synthesis of signals Fumana offers two 16 band filter banks in a comprehensive Eurorack module.
Saturday 3rd February sees a Symposium of seminars, demonstrations and performances at the University of Surrey by the likes of Chris Carter, Chris Watson and Thom Holmes presented by Moog Soundlab UK
Along with the long awaiting Drum Sequencer and intriguing Graphic VCA Erica Synths are also bringing along a new Black Hole DSP 2, Black Resonant Equalizer and a Bass and Snare.
If Strymon made Eurorack effects modules they would make the Magneto - wait, what? A multi-head tape echo, looper and interstellar space machine in my rack? Yes please!
Arturia releases EuroBrute, Roland puts ACB in a multi-functional Eurorack module, Yamaha re-releases the CS-80 and Moog converts everything to Eurorack. Here are my NAMM 2018 predictions and a mixer I want.
More oscillations, improved circuit design, resettable LFO's and an internal paradise for DIY modders the Dark Energy III breathes new life into their original semi-modular desktop monosynth.
