  • Two parallel plus third in series
  • Three multi waveform lfo’s
  • Distortion block as final stage

Erica Synths Intros Black BBD Eurorack Module

[embedded content]

Erica Synths has introduced the Black BBD, a new Eurorack module that features two BBD (bucket brigade device) lines – one short (1024 stage) and one long (4096 stage).

BBD’s essentially take analog samples of a signal, pass each sample down a ‘bucket brigade’, and then convert the samples back into a continuous signal. The more steps in the device, the longer a signal can be delayed at a given quality level.

Both Black BBD stages work simultaneously and you can fade between each BBD mode, creating distinct multi-tap effect. An advanced BBD clock noise cancellation circuit is implemented, reducing unwanted BBD noise, without filtering higher frequencies of the audio signal.

Features:

  • Full analogue design
  • Two BBD lines (1024 and 4096 stages)
  • Smooth crossfade between BBD lines
  • Built in LFO
  • CV control over Time, Feedback and Dry/Wet mix

Pricing and Availability

The new Erica Synths BBD is available now for €260.

Dreadbox Intros Three New Effects Pedals: Darkness, Lethargy & Kinematic

[embedded content]

Dreadbox has introduced three new effects pedals: Darkness, a stereo reverb; Kinematic, a compressor and filter effect; and Lethargy, a phase shifter.

Darkness has a single, flexible algorithm, that can create a variety of reverb effects, from small and smooth reflections up to huge shimmering and endless reverbs.

Features:

  • Flexible Shimmer Reverb with Gate function
  • 32bit @ 48kHz Digital Effects Processor
  • Variable Time Scale with Modulation (Triangle or Sample & Hold)
  • Selectable Pitch Shift (+/-12 semitones) with variable mix amount for shimmering sounds
  • Up to 30sec Decay Times
  • 2-Pole Damping Filter (High Pass or Low Pass)
  • Freeze function (loops 150ms of the input signal)
  • Versatile Gate effect with variable Attack and Release Times
  • True Stereo (Input and Output)
  • Selectable Tails Bypass

Darkness is available for 259 €.

Kinematic is a VCA-based Compressor and Envelope Filter effect pedal, that they say is suitable mostly for string instruments and synthesizers.

Features:

  • Full Analog VCA based Compressor
    • Band Boost Filter
    • Extreme Compression Ratio
  • Envelope Filter
    • Low Pass Filter
    • Slow Envelope Curve
  • Post Diode Overdrive Circuit
  • Level Boost up to +18dB
  • True Tone Maker
  • 3 patch points for our modular fans

Kinematic is expected to be available in April 2021 for  179 €

Xaoc Devices Intros Katowice Stereo Variable Band Isolator, Sarajewo Syncable Analog Delay Line

[embedded content]

Xaoc Devices has introduced two new modules, the Katowice 1978 Stereo Variable Band Isolator & the Sarajewo 1984 Syncable Analog Delay Line, for Eurorack modular systems.

Katowice is a stereo variable–band isolator that lets you manipulate a selected range of frequencies. It is the first in a planned series of modules for processing stereo signals.

Katowice splits the stereo input signal into three bands: low, middle, and high. While the knobs and CV inputs define the center frequency and bandwidth of the mid band, the low and high bands are automatically adjusted so that the sum of all three is a complete signal. All three bands are passed through VCAs and their stereo outputs are available separately for further processing. A stereo mixdown signal is also available.

Katowice may be used as a crossover network, a parametric EQ, DJ-style kill filter, or other band-selective applications, including multiband compression and stereo enhancement.

Features:

  • 3-band, 24dB/oct crossover module
  • Voltage controlled band configuration
  • Three stereo VCA blocks
  • Voltage controlled attenuation in each band
  • 10hp, skiff friendly
  • Current draw: +100mA / –100mA
  • Reverse power protection

It’s available now for 240 EUR.

Sarajewo is an analog delay module, based on ‘old school’ BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) chips. It features three delay taps, an external clock input with various tempo sync factors, and a wide range of settings controllable via CV.

Features:

  • BBD-based analog delay unit
  • Up to 1560ms of analog delay times
  • Three delay taps with individual outputs
  • External clock synchronization
  • Manual tap tempo function
  • Variable tempo divisions and multiplications
  • Automatic bandwidth control
  • Tilt filter in feedback loop
  • External feedback loop input
  • 12hp, skiff friendly
  • Current draw: +180mA/-120mA
  • Reverse power protection

The Sarajewo is available now for 420 EUR.

New Creative Delay For iOS, TTAP

[embedded content]

K-Devices has introduced TTAP For iOS, a new AUv3 delay effect plugin that they say can do bread-and-butter delay sounds, subtle enhancements and evolving experimental echoes.

TTAP is a delay with two buffers. Each buffer features extensive controls for shaping the envelope of the delay sound, with another control set for glitchy pre-feedback repeats and warm pitch-bends.

Inspired by both the classic sounds of tape delays and by experiments in editing and splicing tape, TTAP features a dedicated Section control for determining the maximum length of time of the second buffer. Section also acts as a virtual LFO control, affecting a number of modulation parameters.

Both the Delay Time and Section controls in TTAP can either be synced to your DAW, or run free, providing up to 3.0 seconds of time for each.

 Note: TTAP is an Audio Unit extension (AUv3) – it only works in an AUv3 host app like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Modstep, Beatmaker 3 and other AU hosts.

TTAP is available now for $2.99 through July 14th, normally $5.99.
