Cinnamon is a very unique sounding, voltage controlled state variable filter filter. The presence of drive and character switches makes it a multi-flavoured spice for your sound
! This is a full kit with alu-panel.
Dynamo - Dynamics and more! Dynamo is combination of 3 utility modules: envelope follower, comparator and voltage controlled switch. It combines Envelope Follower and comparator to
extract gate from the envelope. On top of that there is full-wave rectifier output |EF IN| and Compressor CV curve generator.
When the Compressor CV is plugged into CV input of a VCA with offset and attenuator knobs you get an Compressor! Threshold knob on Dynamo sets the compressor threshold, Offset on the VCA sets the gain and the attenuator on the CV input sets the ratio of compression (which can also go negative). This allows you to create compressor type of effect from anything: VCA, tube module, VCF or anything that comes to your rack!
The other trick of the Dynamo is the voltage controlled switch section in combination with the full-wave rectifier and comparator. All pre-normalised and for what reason ? Make “fake thru-zero modulation” with anything you like! Define what happens when the negative modulation is happening and adjust the zero crossing point with CV. The whole world of very deep modulations is waiting for you now…

Noise square is versatile generator of noises and square wave signals. There are two analog noise generators: WHITE noise and PINK noise. All other sound sources are generated digitally. There is a METALIC noise which is 6 oscillator sound bank similar to 808 but generated digitally (with analog summing) and with TUNE icluding CV control option. The DIGITAL noise output has adjustable TUNE and CV control. SQUARE and COW outputs have one square wave signal in common and the COW output has another square signal added in specific ratio to it to get the cowbell sound easily. There are 2 CV inputs for controlling the digital sound sources. For the first CV input there is a switch to select whether it controls the METALIC noise or DIGITAL noise tuning. The second CV input is dedicated to both the SQUARE and COW outputs. The CV inputs reacts in range 0-10V.
Tea kick is universal analog circuit which is based on improved version of twin T resonant structure and mainly inspired by analog drum designs of Standa Filip. The basic
principle or this drum is to create virtual electronic membrane which you strike with electricity than the membrane vibrates and created very natural drum wave form which when outputed to a
speaker (another membrane) sounds very natural. To adjust such membrane we have TUNE and RESONANCE control. Think of adjusting those as if tuning an acoustic drum. There is a CV input for tuning
the circuit so it can sound from bass drum through all the toms to woodblock. There is main TUNE control knob for the tuning and also CV Input with Attenuator.
There is a RESONANCE control which affects how much resonant the circuit is. However the resonance also affects the tuning: the more resonant the lower the drum sound is. Add resonance to get longer decay drum sounds. The resonance range switch can limit the resonance from self oscillating. When you switch it up the resonance control makes the circuit self oscillate and than it can be used as kind of VCO.
Tea kick also has a click generator with tone control which is mixed into the signal. Think of the click as of a stick which you can use to strike a acoustic membrane of a drum – the resulting sound has different character. The click tone control also affects the spectrum of the twin T circuit. There is also SQUARE output and WTF input available for more fun experiments.
Dual decay & VCA. In the front of every ski there is a curve similar to the decay envelope. Skis module has two channels A and B and each of them consists of a decay envelope with knob control and a VCA. There is a TRIGGER input to trigger the envelope, a buffered envelope output which is normalised to the CV input of the VCA. Than there is SIGNAL IN and OUT of the VCA. There is also a CRUNCH switch which activates a special mosfet lofi VCA circuit inspired by designs of Standa Filip. This adds a slight crunchy character which is changing with the decay of the envelope.
A typical application of Skis is to take two signals (noises for example) and generate drum sounds with adjustable DECAY from them with a TRIGGER signal. However you can also use the two VCAs and
two DECAY envelopes independently.
Grandpa is a Granular Sampler. We have been asked by people to bring microGranny into the modular and we decided to rethink the whole granular sampler idea to fit it best into small size eurorack module. Grandpa is the result! It has 2 trigger inputs to trigger 2 different samples. CV input which is assignable to any sound parameter and signal OUTPUT. The CV input can be also used to trigger grain shift. Grandpa reads microSD card accessible from the front panel and runs the same sound core as microGranny 2. For each sample you can adjust: sample rate, crush, grain size, shift speed, attack, release (full release is hold), start and end position.
