  1. Diving Into The Pittsburgh Modular Dynamics Controller Bat: A Modern Low Pass Gate With a Variable Decay

    The Pittsburgh Modular Dynamics Controller Bat is a versatile low pass gate that works both as a resonant filter and a VCA. Its unique lowpass gate circuit mimics the natural characteristics of sounds and produces a more complex and organic sound. Unlike the original LPG, the Dynamics Controller Bat has a variable response time and resonance, making it completely controllable. The module is a modern reinterpretation of Don Buchla’s concept of the LPG and provides the best of both worlds - a natural and alive sound with sustain control.

  2. Adding Flavors of Unpredictability: Exploring the Mosaic Random Eurorack Module

    The Mosaic Random Eurorack Module is a compact yet innovative addition to any modular synth setup. Building on the Source of Uncertainty module created by Don Buchla, the Mosaic Random offers three flavors of unpredictability in the form of Gate, Smooth, and Stepped signals. Each signal can be modulated by a master rate, which can either be generated internally or externally. With onboard attenuators for all outputs, users can easily create subtle variations or complete overhauls of their patches. This module is perfect for those seeking pleasant unpredictability in a small package.
