  • Joranalogue Audio Design Contour 1 Joranalogue Audio Design  Tuesday July 20, 14:42
    It's our take on the classic subharmonics generator patch in today's Patch Tuesday video! A gated switch 'masks' the trigger signal during the rising stage, turning Contour 1 in a frequency divider. What's your favourite C1 patch idea? Let us know! 
  • AI Synthesis AI017 Low Pass Gate Silver/Red AI Synthesis  Monday July 19, 20:12
    The AI017 Low Pass Gate Eurorack Module can be used as a Voltage Controlled Filter, Voltage controlled Amplifier, or both. The AI017 is an updated variation of the classic Buchla 200 Series Low Pass Gate, updated with a tunable resonance circuit, and a Depth control. Vactrols are used for control voltage, allowing for classic "ringing" and "bongo" effects.

    The new module, 2CK, is finally out for grabs! 2CK is an intertwined dual VC clock source capable of instant organized madness of clocking pulse trains. One of the clocks can also be an audio rate oscillator tunable to a nice 1V/Oct! ALSO, a few SLEDGEHAMMERs are back in stock, too ☆
