Befaco

Befaco Manu from Befaco introduced three new modules: Burst, Kickall & Muxlicer. Burst is a little pingable trigger burst generator –  and can be triggered from any trigger source making them fit to your tempo in a cycling proportion . It also can divide or multiply triggers and  can be linear or in a synced nonlinear mode so that you can have  more  or less trigger over the time range – which gives you a kind of creative random mode including triplets quintuplets and so on – and creates true  polyrhythms in your modular synth. The module should come...

Cwejman

Cwejman In a long hot corridor on the second floor between speaker brands, magazines and music schools, the Cwejman booth was to be found. 6 rows of 84TE analogue gorgeousness causing salivary flow to the so called „Cwejman Junkies“. Resignated, heartbroken looks where exchanged among many well dressed visitors, presumably due to the rarity of all Cwejman items. Especially the Cwejman MBC-3, Wowa´s newest creation, a CV controlable mono multiband compressor gives reason to feel pain if one is not able to achieve ownership in time. Not even a well filled bank account can help easing the heartship on...

Black Corporation

Black Corporation Next to the well known CS80 clone „Deckard´s Dream“, the Black Corporation had their newest synth Tier on display. The RSF Polykobol clone „Kijimi“. Stuffed with 8 voices, 2 CEM3340 based VCOs per voice and SSM2040 filter clones. Loopable envelopes, which have 4 different zoom levels meet 2 LFOs. All in all great stuff that sets itself apart from some low priced clones that flood the market by  diving deep into the material, using good custom components and implementing additional cool features. The manufacturer was happy that a solution for a lost banner was found quickly by...

Mordax

Mordax Right before entering hostile territory (the oxigen free catacombs of suffering) on the 1st floor we encountered Mordax’s booth and had a quick chat with Brandon. Mordax is developing a very promising new granular processor: the GXN. It is able to record and process audio in real time. The format is .wav and it provides full CV control over all parameters. The final bit depth is yet undecided but 32bit depth and very high sample rates are possible. The ad/da conversion means business so we can all look forward to a top level player on this field. Once...

WMD

WMD At the Superbooth 2018, WMD presents a new trigger sequencer and various digital drum modules. The prototype of the Advanced Trigger Sequencer features 16 Tracks and memory for saving sequences. Arrange parts and songs, and save it all to memory! The module looks very promising and very hands-on. WMD has integrated a large number of micro-samples, i.e. ultra-short samples, into their percussion synthesizer Fracture. It was supposed to become a module that can only reproduce clap sounds, but in the end the sound repertoire was much larger than expected. According to the manufacturer, various sample templates such as claps, table tennis...
