Shakmat Modular have announced two new modules for the Home Edition of Superbooth 2020 including a programmable quad quantizer and dual/stereo filter. Shakmat Modular are a Belgian Eurorack manufacturer with lots of great modules behind them such as the Bishop’s Miscellany, Four Bricks Rook and Knight’s Gallop.
Both new modules will spoke about with me (DivKid) alongside Hainbach & Konstantine at 17:30 GMT+1 on Thursday the 23rd of April 2020 as part of the Special Reserve Superbooth live streams here.
Bard Quartet – (press release)
This module is an easily adjustable four channel quantizer thanks to its intuitive keyboard and simple user interface. Scale, octave shift and I/O assignation is quickly and independently editable per channel. The harmony feature lets you store and recall (with the knob and through CV) the 4 channel’s settings, making progressive harmonies, chord creation or any evolutive harmonic arrangement an easy peasy task. The module has a non volatile memory containing 80 harmonic configurations. As we all know, playing in tune is cool but controlable detuned harmony is way cooler, that’s why the Bard Quartet features a micro tuning function, where each note of each channel is detunable independently!
The Dual Dagger – (press release)
This module is a double sided weapon, sharpened to cut low and high frequencies. The Dual Dagger chops stereo spectrums with familiar and appropriate controls for the low pass and the high pass filter section. The Band Pass function turns the dual filter into a band pass filter, with control over frequency, bandwidth and independent resonance for each slope! The module is carefully calibrated to share the exact same parameters on both audio channels but thanks to the pan function, it is easy to unlink the cutoff frequencies of each side, which leads to a whole new territory of stereo treatments!
There’s no news on availability or pricing just yet but check http://www.shakmatmodular.com for more information.
