  1. Quirky Delays and Seq Expansions: Bizarre-Jezabel-Quarte MK2 + Xaoc Devices Ostankino II

    The article "Quirky Delays and Seq Expansions: Bizarre-Jezabel-Quarte MK2 + Xaoc Devices Ostankino II" explores the combination of the Bizarre-Jezabel-Quarte MK2 and Xaoc Devices Ostankino II Eurorack modules. The Bizarre-Jezabel-Quarte MK2 is a quad lo-fi delay and LPG/VCA filter delay module that features four vactrol-based LPG/VCA in parallel. Each vactrol-based module is connected to a voltage-controlled delay stage, with individual outputs available. On the other hand, the Xaoc Devices Ostankino II is an expander for the Moskwa II sequencer module. It enhances the connectivity of the Moskwa II module, allowing users to use CV to change various parameters. Ostankino II offers voltage control over parameters such as randomization, slew, probability, transposition, range, first and last step inputs. It also provides individual gate/trigger outputs for each sequence step and features a fixed connection with the Leibniz Binary Subsystem. The article discusses how the combination of these modules can expand creative possibilities in a Eurorack setup. Additionally, the article briefly mentions other modules, including the Kaona Transpos, Intellijel 4U x 104HP Palette Case Top Row, and Black Noise Sallen Key, which further contribute to the overall functionality and versatility of the setup.

  2. Takaab RLFO: Unlocking Random, Stepped and Gradual Control Voltages with Built-in LFO, Sample & Hold and Noise Circuits

    The Takaab RLFO module by Siam Modular is a versatile modulation and control voltage generator. It features a built-in LFO, sample & hold, and noise circuits, making it capable of producing random, stepped, and gradual control voltages. The LFO has two outputs, square and triangle, and is internally normalized to the clock input of the sample & hold. The noise is also normalized to the signal input of the sample & hold, which allows it to output a random, stepped voltage without external patching. The RLFO can also sample any external signal and use external clock, gate, or trigger signals to trigger the sample points of the sample & hold. With its slew circuit on the output, the module can produce more gradual or wobbly control voltages.
