Metabolic Devices – Moonwalker

Moonwalker is a versatile and precise analog attack/decay generator that can act as a VCO, LFO or AD envelope and offers some special features. Basically it can be said that the two lower knobs control attack and decay parameters and the one with an orange background allows for an offset of the phase, which shows different effects at the different outputs. There are three switchable time ranges that cover everything from very slow modulations to well into the audio range. Besides the phase offset there is also a special feature that allows you to swap the times for the attack and decay phase at the push of a button! This becomes especially exciting when you combine it with the Cycle mode – here you get an unusual, exciting modulation source!


In this video we want to show the module briefly in action. We use it as an envelope, LFO with many external modulations and show it as an audio oscillator, with its special sound.

NAMM 17 – AJH Synths

AJH 2AJH 1AJH 3Allan J. Hall added some new modules to his well received MiniMod product line. The Dual LFO + VCA is composed of two low frequency oscillators with two outputs each. In detail, one of those connectors emits a triangle waveform, which can be morphed into saw or ramp waves. The other jack sends out pulse signals with variable width. Both LFOs are equipped with rate potentiometers. Additionally, the first one has a slow switch to adjust the control range. Furthermore, it can be synchronized to external modules using a clock signal. The second LFO is normalized to the CV controllable VCA, meaning it is possible to influence the modulation strength with components like the modulation wheel of a keyboard. Of course, the amplifier can be used standalone as well.

AJHs second new module is the DH-ADSR Envelope, a modulator featuring a design similar to the EMS Trapezoid Generator. It offers delay, attack, decay, sustain value plus hold time and release parameters. Therefore, by combining it with a normal ADSR envelope, users are able to create complex modulation curves. A retrigger switch makes the circuit oscillate. The range of the time values can be altered. There are normal and inverted outputs.

The third module in the bunch of fresh products is called CV Mix – Offset – VCA. As the name states already, this circuit is specialized in mixing up to four control voltages. Its level potentiometers are bipolar. If no cable is plugged in, the first three inputs are normalized to fixed voltages. Their values vary from channel to channel. The fourth input comes equipped with an offset generator. Furthermore, there is a CV controllable VCA built-in.

Toppobrillo

Der Triple Wavefolder by Toppobrillo ist the first release of another american micro manufacturer of modules fitting to the 3-rackspace system compatible with all that doepfer stuff. The first units are on their way to us now and can probably be heard and tested over here this friday latest. We will do the same and update our sites then directly.

Now see an introduction Video here and another one here, please.
