Hi all, I’m a new module manufacturer who has taken the adventurous path of not designing for eurorack, joining Wiard in making 6U height modules.
I am currently in production with a novel take on a dual VCO, using analogue computing techniques to implement function blocks that can be found in many digital oscillators. The modulation osc is a sine, with an amplitude stabilization circuit based on trigonometric identities. The carrier osc is a real time computer to calculate the solutions that are often found in wavetables, where doing the calculation in analogue brings advantages that are beyond the scope of having a bunch of harmonics decided for you in advance to select from.
Shipping from stock in the next few months.
Future modules include a quad VCA, a dual physical modelling processor and a syncable Sine LFO.
These are high end computing devices, and as such the initial investment is higher than modern mass produced consumer objects, but the economic model is very fair, with a high ethic supply chain, and the useable life of the instrument will be longer than that of many musicians themselves.
