With Quasar there is finally a very compact and powerful device availaible which allows the musician to be creative with spatial positioning of incoming sounds. But what is spatial positioning actually?
It is more than just stereo placement. One can have sounds rotate full 360° around your head and also define heights. Filtering is used to create the illusion of near or far. The addition of a great sounding room reverb rounds up the spec sheet of Quasar. Of course this task may be patched in any grown up modular set up, but with reasonable efforts while Quasar delivers the function as a complete package in one and maybe for the first time in Eurorack format. The two demo videos hopefully demonstrate the modules capabilties well. While in the “first impressions”-video we control the module entirely by hand. In the second video we use the envelope follower outputs of the famous Fumana by FrapTools to control Quasar.
