  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.

  3. Unleashing Creative Video Manipulation: A Review of the Reverse Landfill Blur Eurorack Module

    The Reverse Landfill Blur Eurorack Module is an analog video filter that can be used to achieve blur and softening trail effects. It comes equipped with a blur amount potmeter, a gain adjustment for matching or unmatching blurred and dry signals, and a 3-way switch for selecting different blur ranges. With input and output jacks and video rate CV control, this module can be used on any kind of video input signal for unique results. A camera feedback feature allows for voltage controlled soft trailing wash-outs and fades. The module also has a CV input that can be adjusted between 0-1v or 0-5v for easy interfacing with other eurorack modules. Overall, the Reverse Landfill Blur Eurorack Module is an excellent tool for unleashing creative video manipulation effects.

  4. Exploring the Vintage Sound of Roland Synths with Erica Synths Black 3109 VCF/VCA Eurorack Module

    The Erica Synths Black 3109 VCF/VCA Eurorack module is a versatile lowpass filter and voltage-controlled amplifier combo that provides vintage Roland synth sounds. It is based on the AS3109 VCF integrated circuit, which is a modern version of the IR3109 chip found on classic synthesizers like the Jupiter and Juno series, and the SH-101. This module addresses the volume drop issue when the resonance is increased and includes a volume drop compensation feature along with a built-in VCA for added functionality. The module also includes cutoff level attenuverter and 1V/oct tuning, making it great for VCF keyboard tracking and even use as a VCO.

  5. Exploring the Dynamic Capabilities of Steady State Fate's Multi-Mode Low Pass Gate with Timbre Modifying Circuits

    The Steady State Gate by Steady State Fate is a unique and versatile multi-mode low pass gate with additional timbre modifying circuitries, including a wave folder, soft saturation overdrive, and QAOS resonance character modifier. It has 6dB/Oct bandpass, 6dB/Oct lowpass, and 12dB/Oct lowpass filter modes, as well as manual frequency cutoff and resonance control with CV input. The module also has a voltage controlled decay envelope tailored to the vactrol LPG response curve, and an excite input that conditions gates, triggers, and external envelopes to "pluck" the low pass gate with sensitivity to envelope attack up to about 50ms. It can be used as a standalone VCF or as a standalone VCA with high-end roll-off.

  6. Exploring Chaotic Drones and Swarming Sounds with Veratrum Eurorack Module

    The Veratrum Eurorack module is a noise and texture voice with five oscillators that go through a pseudo ring modulator, producing chaotic drones, swarming sounds, and clicks and blips on lower frequencies. The module features two touchpads that control the volume and pitch of two of the oscillators, three VCO with frequency pots and CV input jacks with offset potmeters, and one LFO with ramp, saw, and triangle waveforms. The module also includes a vactrol lowpass filter with CV input jack and two audio outputs: square swarm and filtered. This module provides an excellent opportunity for exploring and creating chaotic, swarming soundscapes in eurorack systems.
