  1. Unleashing Sonic Universes: Exploring the Versatility of the Bastl Instruments Ikarie Eurorack Module

    The article "Unleashing Sonic Universes: Exploring the Versatility of the Bastl Instruments Ikarie Eurorack Module" delves into the features and capabilities of the Ikarie module. This unique stereo or dual peak filter offers continuous transition between lowpass and highpass filtering with a single knob, along with an envelope follower for enhanced sound animation. The module's dual filter cores can be modulated in sync for stereo effects or chained together to create a 24 dB filter. The Ikarie also features a dual peak filter mode and a "Beyond" output that delivers the spectral difference of the two filters, enabling a twin peak filter effect. With additional functionalities such as internal VCA, CV control over panning and resonance, optional input overdrive, and a compact form factor, the Ikarie opens up a vast universe of sound design possibilities. Developed through a collaboration between Bastl Instruments and Casper Electronics, this module balances resonance and envelope response superbly while offering a user-friendly control scheme. Explore the sonic versatility of the Ikarie and unleash your creativity.

  2. 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.
