NAMM 2017: More Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms Coming Soon!
February 06, 20172 translation missing: en.blogs.article.read_time
The concept behind these new Pittsburgh Modular Eurorack modules was to fit as many different features and potential possibilities into the individual modules. Making experimenting creative and fun, and maximising your rack-space too.
The Double Helix Oscillator has two built-in analogue voltage tracking oscillators. The Double Helix has a wave shaper and low-pass gate built into the module, along with an LFO. Each channel includes a VCA. A comprehensive CV matrix allows for deep integration with other modulators. The low-pass gate is actually a modified version of the Pittsburgh Low Pass Impulse Filter they released lat last year. Currently in production, we can expect the Double Helix Oscillator to be available early March.
The new Binary Filter is based on the filter section from the SV-1. Key difference is the addition of a Stable and Unstable allowing the oscillator to self-oscillate. Frequency and resonance are voltage controlled too.
The New ADSR module is an envelope generator. Great for creating more expression of your sound, and offers a fun hands-on vibe too! Encoders for Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release, with additional features such as the ability to invert the output signal. Use the ADSR to control amplitude or frequency cutoff - or any control voltage from another module.
The 2 + 2 Mixer has a total of four channels for audio and CV signals. It can be configured: 4 channels, 2 x 2 channel mixer, 4 discrete attenuators, 2 channel mixer and 2 attenuators, OR 3 channel mixer and 1 attenuator. Handy module for any Eurorack.
We will keep you up-to-date with all developments regarding pricing and Australian ETA for these new modules. In the meantime, check out Pittsburgh Modular’s Instagram page for a few videos and pic’s from NAMM 2017.
