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.
The Erbe-Verb is more than a collection of reverb algorithms or presets, it is a unique, modeless, continuously variable reverb algorithm with complete voltage control. Typical reverb types such as plate, room, hall, shimmer and others may be programmed by adjusting the knobs. The continuously variable algorithm allows for hybrid and unreal spaces to be found. Traveling between spaces is possible by modulating the algorithm or manually sweeping parameters. More than an end-of-chain effects unit, it’s a whole new building block for modular synthesis. Like the Echophon, it’s coded by Tom Erbe of soundhack.
Record everything. You never know when you’re going to hit that groove and when you do you’ll be glad you captured it. Eurorack signals are really hot, tame them down to line level for your mixer, amp, or recorder. Monitor your patch thought the low noise headphone amp.
