I wonder if anyone else caught this today. Radioactive, a 6HP Analog Modelling VCO. Tesseracts description:
- Radioactive is a small but powerful 14-bit analog modelling voltage-controlled digital sound source : a complete voice Eurorack module in 6HP. It consists of 3 simultaneous independent oscillators, voltage-controlled AR/ASR transient generator, voltage-controlled pitch slew (glide) and voltage-controlled waveshaper with 5 different modes, but that’s just the beginning. Its forte consists of selectable gate/trigger/constant envelope timing signals, rather unique 3-voice polyphonic mode, semitone-quantized mode, voltage-controlled waveform selection, on-the-fly selectable 10Vpp CV input range with offset (except for Pitch), a few experimental features, and then some.
Under the hood, it’s a chiptune-inspired wavetable-gnawing sound cruncher with a mind of it’s own, and oh boy it’s dirty. It could be described as raw and untamed, but it would probably be an understatement.
It sounds extremely ambitious. I am curious to know more about the polyphony mode they describe here. Looks like it is based on Atmega MCU. I’ve heard of their other module, Nutella Tsunami based on the Sparkfun Tsunami wave trigger. But I’ve not really heard much in general about Tesseract Modular. Really curious if anyone has any feedback.
