  2. 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.

  5. Exploring the Versatility of the Oms in Serial Suiveur: A Simple Envelope Follower for Your Eurorack Setup

    The article titled 'Exploring the Versatility of the Oms in Serial Suiveur: A Simple Envelope Follower for Your Eurorack Setup' dives into the capabilities of the Envelope Follower 1USuiveur module, which is a basic envelope follower with added In1 and In2 inputs to produce an inverted envelope. Its sensitivity can be adjusted using the threshold pot, which sets the gate opened until the signal falls below the threshold, and the smooth pot sets the overall envelope shape. The module also has a Dupont input and an inverted copy output, which can be used to chain it with other Oms In Serial modules.
