  1. Expanding Possibilities: Squid Salmple meets Juno VCF & More!

    The article explores the possibilities of combining various Eurorack modules, including the Squid Salmple, Juno VCF, mElEe mixer/distortion, Line Input converter, and Black Low Pass VCF. The Squid Salmple's CV Expander, AXON-1, adds 4 additional freely assignable CV inputs, expanding the manipulation options for the sampler or effects. The upcoming SoundForce uVCF 6 module is a reinterpretation of the Juno 60/106 VCF section, utilizing modern components. The mElEe mixer/distortion offers a unique twist with three mixing modes and can also be used for CV manipulation. The Line Input converter allows stereo audio input and adjustment of levels for processing external gear within the modular setup. Finally, the Erica Synths Black Low Pass VCF provides stable 24dB/oct resonant low pass filtering with voltage control over cutoff and resonance, enhanced by an adjustable post-filter overdrive circuit and the Black Filter Coupler connector.

  3. Exploring the Versatility and Updates of the ALM Busy Circuits Pip Slope Mk II: A Compact Envelope and Function Generator in 4HP

    The ALM Busy Circuits Pip Slope Mk II is a compact envelope and function generator that supports both Attack/Decay and Attack/Sustain/Decay type envelopes with control over Attack and Decay times. The module features morphing between exponential, linear and logarithmic type slopes, and offers loop modes that can repeat infinitely or decrease with time or amplitude for echo and bouncing ball type effects. Improvements in the updated version include increased output resolution, finer control of fast envelopes, a new morphing shape control, switchable 5v or 8v maximum envelope level, additional loop modes, and an additional trigger output. The module is skiff friendly and designed and made in the UK.

  6. Expanding the Possibilities: A Review of the ALM Busy Circuits ALM022 EXP1 AXON-1 CV Expander for Squid Salmple & MFX

    The ALM Busy Circuits ALM022 EXP1 AXON-1 CV Expander for Squid Salmple & MFX is a 4HP module that expands the capabilities of the Squid Salmple and MFX by providing four additional CV inputs with digital attenuation and offset. This allows for greater flexibility in modulation assignments, greatly increasing the possibilities for modular sampler or FX program manipulation. The AXON-1 is powered directly from the Squid with no additional power header required and is skiff-friendly. All assignments and settings are saved with banks, making it a convenient and powerful addition to any modular setup. It should be noted that for use with the Squid Salmple, firmware 166 or later must be installed for the AXON-1 to function properly.
