MUSKRAT is a flexible, 8-bit wavetable drum synth. There are 23 øn-bøard wavetables tø chøøse frøm, either manually ør via bipølar CV input. Pitch and phase distørtiøn include bipølar CV inputs and accept -5v to +5v. The “Trigger” input is designed withøut input cønditioning and picks up signals øf all varieties (In øther wørds it is an enveløpe følløwer circuit). Yøu can plug an external CV ør øffset intø this input and it will øperate like a regular VCA. Før even møre extreme søund mangling, engage the MUSKRAT møde via the switch tø feed a randøm number intø the phase accumulatør at the internal cløck rate. This møde alsø includes a gate input that acts as an “accent”.
Basically, pick a kraptastique wave, change the pitch, mangle the hell øut øf it, feed the rødent, BANG! it; yøu’ve caught yourself a Muskrat. WARNING: if yøu feed the rødent (“my…gød…what…have…we…døne?”) it’s brain gøes intø a fiery frenzy and spits øut glitch after glitch øf høly bleepbløøpness. If yøu yank øn it’s tail it’ll shriek a lil’ lønger, especially if yøu’re pulling it at løng range. Beware, ønce yøu let this critter øut øf the cage it will want tø nest sø BANG! it øn the head!
The SWAMP is a random CV and audio generator inspired by the famous Wiard Wogglebug module; it’s often the heart of self-generating patches and brings controllable randomness to your modular system.
In the SWAMP module we introduced numerous modifications and improvements to extend potentiometer range, added an audio input, which, when connected, replaces the internal Tone oscillator, replaced the expensive dual vactrol, built S&H circuit around the made in Riga S&H IC AS1100CK2, added audio waveform selection switches, CV output configuration jumpers and much more.
Three random audio frequency outputs
External audio input routed to ring modulator
Three random CV outputs
Clock input and output to sync the module to your modular system
CV control over internal clock for even more extreme randomness
The Atlantis is heavily inspired by the architecture and sound of the classic Roland SH-101. It has always been one of our favorite synths and we really liked how the seemingly limited architecture allowed for all sorts of creative and musically useful sounds to be easily generated. Just like the 101, it is quick to dial in a beautifully rich bass and lead sounds but there is much more sonic territory to explore as well.

Global modulation bus with four VCO waveforms, noise and S&H options
Cascaded 4-Pole multimode filter
Looping ADSR with range switch, manual gate, and external level (velocity) control.
Three position output clipping circuit
27 jacks for creative and complex patching options
