  4. Exploring the Garden Listener: A Biometric Signals to MIDI Module for Eurorack

    The article "Exploring the Garden Listener: A Biometric Signals to MIDI Module for Eurorack" delves into the features and functions of Clatters Machines' Garden Listener module. This biometric signals to MIDI module can detect variations in the surface of living beings, and convert them into MIDI notes and CV signals. The sensitivity of the probes, scale, MIDI channel, and LED brightness can be controlled via the one-knob menu. Additionally, the Garden Listener generates trigger, gate, and CV signals, and its CV output behavior can be modified through the octave selector. The article highlights the unique and creative potential of using living beings to modulate signals with this module.

  7. Exploring the paratek-RZRV-black-1u: A Vactrol-Based Random Gater-Interruptor Eurorack Module for Creative Signal Manipulation

    The paratek-RZRV-black-1u is a vactrol-based random gater-interruptor Eurorack module that allows for creative signal manipulation. With four independent generators, this module can perform two tasks depending on the operating conditions. When an external signal is connected, the device will break and pass it according to a unique random algorithm. In the absence of an incoming signal, the device transmits +5v to use as the gate, triggers, etc. Each channel has a smooth setting from rare skips to infrequent interrupts. Users can customize the units with knobs and LED colors. The module can be ordered directly by email and payment can be made through PayPal.
