  3. Get That 'Sidechaining-Sound' with the ST Modular DUCK Eurorack Module: A Comprehensive Review

    The ST Modular DUCK Eurorack Module is a ducking module that reduces the audio signal level when a CV GATE signal is applied. It is perfect for resolving issues with overcrowded mixes or for achieving the coveted 'sidechaining-sound', without any signal compression. The module has four potentiometers that control the way the signal is 'ducked', including AMOUNT, HOLD, RISE, and FALL. It also features two LEDs that indicate the signal level and the level of signal reduction, and can be controlled via CV input. The module comes in three PCB boards and has wrong polarity protection.

  4. 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.
