  2. Exploring the Twisted Brother of Compressors: Introducing the Cosmotronic Peradam Eurorack Module

    The Cosmotronic Peradam is a unique analog distortion module with an internal sidechain that creates complex self-distortion sounds in the main signal. The side-chain is modulated by itself to create a signal at twice the frequency of the original and then modulates the amplitude of the VCA. The module also has a dual-band drive circuit before entering a soft clipper output stage. It allows for a broad palette of distortions, from subtle saturation to massive clipping and complete destruction. The module comes with a +6dB gain switch on the input and a blend slider to dial in your tones. The Cosmotronic Peradam is available for pre-order at an MSRP of €270 and is estimated to ship in January 2022.
