What is first noticeable about the new Modules from Roland is that they can be used either in a stand-alone mode as a tabletop device or in Eurorack format. This is a great move by Roland as not everyone has caught the Eurorack bug and just wants to buy a single module to connect up to their AIRA units VIA AIRA link.
Also you may notice that these devices are digital. At first you may think this is a bad thing, but I believe there are already a ton of fully analog Eurorack devices on the market, and adding something that is intrinsically digital will offer up a different flavor. Just because it’s analogue doesn’t necessary mean it’s good and Roland have provided a good selection of effects that will add some nice point of difference. Will these modules change the die hard analogue purist…no, will they offer up something different to someone who doesn’t really care, most definitely.
Torcido is essentially a distortion unit. But to call it just that underlies the scope of its flexibility and sound sculpting capabilities. Torcido can be controlled VIA CV/Gate inputs to control Tube warmth or tone.
Next up in Rolands Modular line is BITRAZER. Described as a unique modular effect combining intense bit and sample rate crushing effects and unprecedented control and flexibility. Again this unit features CV and Gate control and fits nicely into a Eurorack form or stand-alone. I’m sure you’ll get some nice bit crushing, oversampled sounds from this device.
DEMORA is a unique modular effect combining an all-new, high-resolution delay with unprecedented control and flexibility. MODULATE SPEED AND FEEDBACK VIA CV AND GATE inputs.
This unit is the last in the Modular series by Roland and is know as Scooper. Scooper essentially is a single-pass loop recorder and Scatter effect with CV and Gate modulation control. Capture a loop, adjust pitch and filter and apply scatter effects. Two inputs and two outputs make SCOOPER a stereo-capable, 24bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems, and AIRA Link USB compatibility gives it single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the MX-1 Mix Performer.
