However first, probably the most fascinating modular answer that appeared this week is LANIAKEYA from Magritte. It has a number of sound engines which can be overlaid with wavetable-based waveforms for superclusters and cosmic-sized wobbles. Extra about it right here.
Modular day in Barcelona
Yearly Befaco hosts a day of modular manufacturing, demonstration and presentation. It brings collectively a tremendous variety of modular firms from Spain and plenty of European international locations. This yr these embody Endorphines, Eowave, Ginko Synthesis, Jolin Lab, Joranalogue, Making Sound Machines, Nano, Tesseract, OXI Devices and extra.
Over a dozen performances that includes all kinds of modular and visible artists, together with Ambar, Dying Whistle, Me-Lenna, Could Grace and Colloid. There are additionally many workshops the place you may construct a variety of DIY modules beneath the steering of the creators.

Vector Sequencer is certainly a cool, subtle and complete Eurorack module. However at Knobcon Five12 they confirmed a brand new product known as QV-L, which could be very fascinating.
The QV-L is a Quad Variable LFO module with 4 customizable waveforms. The cut up display reveals the motion of LFOs 1 and a couple of on the left and three and 4 on the fitting, which additionally defines how the module is cut up. Thus, the encoders on the left management the primary two LFOs, and the encoders on the fitting management the second two. The interior engine needs to make issues as versatile as attainable with the intention to match pens and incoming resumes to locations of your selecting.
You will additionally discover a number of inside envelopes for modulating LFO parameters, creating an unbelievable combine of fixing waveforms.

As with the QV-L, it has an output processor within the type of an attenuator. This fashion you may set the extent of your LFO with out a further module – very handy. There are two outputs, bipolar and unipolar, which rise and fall by about 5V.
DANCE is straightforward, groovy, it has LEDs to indicate motion and you may CV management waveform choice, tempo and attenuator. All this in 6 hp. with hen in entrance for 145 euros. Adore it!

Tassel Precision ASMR Tuner
One other nightmare module from Error Devices that goals to use our autonomous meridian sensory response. Tassel can produce gradual vinyl crackling noise, textures and micro-sounds that connect with your mind and take you out of on a regular basis life.

All that is laborious to think about whenever you watch the demo video. However then happiness is available in many various types.
The precision meter is a uncommon 1956 part and solely 50 brushes will probably be made. It will likely be out there in October for 299 euros.
