Dannysound - VU Meters

Product information "Dannysound - VU Meters"
The Dannysound VU Meters is designed to be used with 2 x Dynamics modules. The modules connect internally via 2x3 pin ribbon cables.
The meters provide a visual representation of various signals within the Dynamics modules making settings easier.

Controls For Each Channel:

3 position toggle switch:

1. C/E OUT – Monitor compressor/expander output.

2. INPUT – Monitor Dynamics input level or external input if it’s used.

3. C/E AMT – Monitor Dynamics compression/expansion amount.

3 position toggle switch:

1. HI SENS – High sensitivity setting, best for monitoring the C/E OUT signal of percussive sounds and drums etc.

2. OFF – If you want to turn meters off. Note that this stops the needles moving but the backlights will stay on.

3. LO SENS – Low sensitivity setting, best for monitoring the C/E AMT signal or anything that overloads the HI SENS setting.

• External input sockets for monitoring external sources.
• Switch to select high or low meter sensitivity or off if the clicking needles get annoying!
• Monitoring of the compression/expansion amount.
• Monitoring of the unprocessed input level.
• Monitoring of the compressor/expander output level.

Manufacturer "Dannysound"
Dannysound is a small Berlin based electronics company, specialising in the design of Eurorack modular synthesisers. The aim of Dannysound synthesisers is to provide high quality audio design and performance. There is a focus on warm sounding, soft-clipping saturation inherent to the designs, that can make recorded tracks "sit" better in a mix. ‍ The collection started with a basic synthesiser voice that included reworkings of some classic designs to provide added functionality or better performance where necessary. The future of the collection will focus more on original designs, however, there are also some classic modules that have been requested by users that might make their way into the line-up. ‍ The modules are currently available as kits from Thonk.co.uk and there are plans to start making fully assembled versions in the near future. I started playing guitar in the 80’s, when it was cool. In the 90’s I studied jazz at music college and then went on to have a glittering career playing some of the worst pubs and clubs, to absolutely no one for 5 years. Then I decided to make electronic music and before I even recorded the first note I got a record deal…they liked the idea! Recorded an album… got dropped! Had a ton of rubbish jobs until a friend suggested university, so I got a degree in electronics with the specific goal of making musical equipment. Designed guitar effects, valve guitar amplifiers and synths; building polyphonic and monophonic complete systems for a number of years. A friend suggested I design Eurorack modules and with the help of Thonk the brand was established. The company name was suggested by a friend also. I fixed a lot of bands gear for a while and I liked to tinker around to get the best sound possible, so the name Dannysound (Danny's sound), is what he suggested… it seemed to fit with the design philosophy, plus I had no better ideas, so that’s the name.
