Shakmat - Tessitura Tailor

Made-to-measure Pitch. The Tessitura Tailor adds or substracts a precise voltage (from -2 to +2 volts) to the signal received at the CV input. This signal is transposed by octaves, depending on the rotary switch’s position. As the CV input is normalised to 0 volt, the module works without any input as an octave switch.

 

• Switchable CV transposer/generator

• Stepped potentiometer allowing transposition from -2 to +2 octaves

• Precison trimmer at the back of the module for fine-tunning.

• Skiff friendly (25mm deep)

• Intellijel and Pulp Logic format supported

 

Power: 10mA @ +12V / 10mA @ -12V

Format: 1U

Width: 10 HP

Depth: 25mm

 

DIY level: easy. Building instructions can be downloaded here. All SMD parts are pre-polulated, THT parts to solder.

• Dual clock dividers

• Dedicated potentiometer for each divider with two different ratio ranges

• 4 jumpers at the back allowing customisation of the dividers (triggers/gates, auto-reset, alternative clocking)

• Skiff friendly (25mm deep)

• Intellijel and Pulp Logic format supported

Shakmat - Knight's Gallop

Math & Rythm! Two outputs and five different rhythmic flavors multiply by a load of “algo-rhythmic” processing to result in a practically infinite number of polyrhythms. That’s the fundamental formula that produces the Knight's Gallop principle: a dual trigger generator providing sequences according to tables and modes. Here is a demo video.

 

"The knight’s Gallop is a cool tool. Groovy and unusual patterns are easy to stumble upon. Moving around the tables, modes and sub-modes offers a lot of variety. I will be using it a lot."

Martin Gore - Depeche Mode, 2016

 

• Dual Output Trigger Generator
• Variable length sequences (up to 16 steps)
• Length and Pulse amount potentiometers and CV inputs
• Shift + & shift - buttons allowing to shift the sequence forward and backward
• Main (MN) mode providing a lot of utlity modes for the second output : reset, no shift, invert and reverse
• Compute (CP) mode calculating associated sequences for the second output delivering very musical polyrythm
• Random (RD) mode adding randomness on the sequence feeding the second output, 4 amounts of randomness determined by the sub mode
• Dual (DL) mode allowing to set the two outputs seperatly
• Record (RC) mode turning the Knight's Gallop into a “play your sequence on the buttons and record it” module
• Five different kind of tables for five different rythmic flavours : Classic Euclidean (CE), Revised Euclidean (RE), Erdos Deep (ED), Divide Integer (DI) & Divided sequences (DS)
• User replaceable firmware chip

 

Power: 22mA @ +12V

Shakmat - White Gallop

Algorhythmic sequencer - Limited Edition!

The White Gallop is the proud throttle companion of our good old Knight's Gallop. Less focussed on the euclidean side of the algorhythmic generation, the White Gallop provides more assymetrical and original patterns. This limited edition also received a handful new weapon : the auto-reset function which obviously reset the generated sequences after 8 or 16 steps. As the Knight's Gallop, this modules is endowed with the same modes and sub modes allowing utility, computational and randomish treatments of the patterns. Of course, we also kept our beloved dual and records modes. Same modus operandi for a totally different result, the White Gallop is a perfect tool for your trigger sequencers section.

 
• Dual Output Trigger Generator
• Variable length sequences (up to 16 steps)
• Length and Pulse amount potentiometers and CV inputs
• Shift + & shift - buttons allowing to shift the sequence forward and backward
• Main mode (MN) a lot of utlity modes for the second output : reset, no shift, invert and reverse
• Compute mode (CP) calculating associated sequences for the 2nd out delivering musical polyrythms
• Random mode (RD) adding randomness on 2nd out seq, 4 amounts of randomness determined by the sub mode
• Dual mode (DL) allowing to set the two outputs seperatly
• Record mode (RC) turning the Knight's Gallop into a “play your sequence on the buttons to record it” module
• Auto-Reset function which automatically resets the sequences after 8 or 16 steps
• Five different kind of tables for five different rythmic flavours : As Straight as Possible, Length minus Pulse, Accelerando, Decelerando & Fill Next
• Elektron style push buttons
• High quality metal potentiometers with double rubber injected knobs

Shakmat - Gemini's Path

Stereo Dynamics & Dual VCA

This 6hp skiff friendly amplitude processor is a very handy module to control the dynamics of two signals or mess with the stereo image. Based on a pair of high-end VCAs, an audio to trigger converter and a smart modulation source, the Gemini’s Path allows numerous operations such as decay/gate on amplitude, auto accentuation, sidechain compression, auto pan and more ! Here is a teaser video.

Shakmat - Bishop's Miscellany

Basically, the Bishop's Miscellany is a dual stepped CV/Gate Recorder. It records two CV’s and two Gates on steps a bit like an analog shift register but with a lot more. First, plug in your CV/Gate keyboard, your MIDI interface, your ribbon, your joystick or your favorite CV/Gate controller and record a sequence. If you are too lazy to play something, you can even use the internal random generator to feed the inputs. Then, play the sequence and mangle it, it's that easy! Here is a demo video.

 

• Dual Stepped CV / Gate Recorder

• Variable length sequences (up to 32 steps)

• Shift parameter scanning differents segments in your original sequence.

• AB switch allowing to record two different 32 steps sequences.

• Random value generator very handly to create random loops or to play sequences randomly

• Cut funtion hacking the gate out 1 for more dynamic phrases

• CV inputs for Length and Shift functions

• Gate inputs for all the switch functions (Record, AB, Cut and Random)

• Input & Outplut voltages 0 - 5V

 

Power: 25mA @ +12V

Shakmat - Clock O'Pawn

The Clock O’Pawn is a useful clock sourcing device that performs as your system’s true chef d’orchestre. Its transport section lets you start, stop, and reset connected instruments which are synchronised to an intuitive internal clock source or dancing along with your analogue and MIDI equipment. If you get bored by a metronomous clock, turn up the swing function and the maestro will lead with a nice shuffled feel! Here is a demo video.

Shakmat - Time Wizard

The Time Wizard got a bag full of arcane time-warping tricks. All his magical feats are based on 6 dividers with selectable division factors and 4 switches providing 81 routing variations. This module's occult powers have been harnessed to easily clock and reset other sequencers with odd time signatures, provide weird clock division/multiplication ratios, and create complex poly-rhythms. Here is a demo video.

 

• Sextuple clock divider divided in two sections A and B
• Dedicated potentiometer acting on the division factor for each divider
• Clock multiplying and weird div / mult ratio abilities for the first section, first section incoming clock can be multiplied by 3 or 4, allowing to get easily triplets from a 16th clock or mult / div association as x4 / 7
• Independent clocking or divider association abilities for the second section, so B5 and B6 can get their clock in internaly from B4. For example, associating B4 = /7 and B5 = /16 provide a hit at each clock begining of 4 bars with a 7/4 time signature
• Auto-reset available for the first section or the whole module, the autoreset is provided by B6
• Additional logic functions for divider A2 : A2 output can provide the following functions : A2 AND B5 or A2 OR A3
• Jumper on the back for Trigger or Gate selection for B5 and B6
• User replaceable firmware chip


Power: 20mA @ +12V
