The Malekko 8NU8R is a clever utility. A dual 4hp attenuator, the 8NU8R also sports the ability to switch on diode rectification waveshaping. Regular attenuation, as well as full and half wave rectification with adjustable attenuation, are possible. When no input is present, each half of the 8NU8R produces a steady DC voltage (offset) adjustable by the level control. DC offsets have many uses in a modular system.
All the essentials to control and sync your rack to your computer, iPhone/iPad, or hardware MIDI device. No menu diving or configuration scripts, just two buttons. Get crazy with external modulation and sequencers, or just sync your rack’s clock from your MIDI bus.
A true spring reverb is an almost magical device. Deceptiviely simple in concept but capable of producing extremely rich and hauntingly beautiful sounds. Not just a retro novelty; spring reverbs are still used extensively whether it is nailing a classic dub reggae sound, adding some shimmer to a synth riff or creating some space on a vocal track in a big studio. This is a reverb that rewards real-time tweaking: crank the feedback, sweep the filter and play with the ghostly feedback drones that ensue. Better yet, try animating them with CV and inserting other modules into the feedback path.
