Shakmat - Dual Dagger

sold out at the moment

The Dual Dagger is a double-sided weapon, carefully sharpened to chop stereo signals.

Shakmat - Knight's Gallop

sold out at the moment

AlgoRhythmic Generator. 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.The source tables contain patterns such as the Euclidean polyrhythms, and the modes allow the user manipulate and mangle those patterns according to different algorithms. As the module has two outputs, it is a very powerful instrument to create diversified and instantaneous polyrhythms.Features:• 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) providing a lot of utlity modes for the second output : reset, no shift, invert and reverse• Compute mode (CP) calculating associated sequences for the second output delivering very musical polyrythm• Random mode (RD) adding randomness on the second output sequence, 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• Five different kind of tables for five different rythmic flavours : Divider Sequences, Classic Euclidean, Revised Euclidean, Anti Euclidean & Split Sequences• User replaceable firmware chipDIY-Kit-Type:SMD-Kit-1.

Shakmat - Mod Medusa

sold out at the moment

In a simplistic way, The Mod Medusa could be described as an Euclidean LFO: an “algorithmic” modulation source which produces variable period LFO signals synced to rhythmic patterns. Those patterns are generated by algorithms such as the Euclidean one or different ones coming from the White and Knight's Gallop. The Mod Medusa has 4 outputs generating 4 correlated LFOs, which give different “polyrhythms” according to the chosen mode. Generated waveforms can easily be twisted using the symmetry and shape parameters which continuously morph the signal into different waveshapes. Many on-panel controls, assignable Gate and VCA Inputs turn the Mod Medusa into a strong performance tool. A very unique approach which leads to instantaneous and original results.Features:• Unique concept of sequenced LFO• Four outputs which can be correlated or independent• Four correlation modes: Main, Compute, Random or Phase• Eight tables generated by algorithms producing different rhythmic patterns• Length (from 1 to 16 steps), density and shift controls over the sequence• Shape and symmetry controls over the generated waveforms• Unipolar or Bipolar outputs• Peak Sync function allowing to synchronize the LFO differently to the incoming clock• Assignable gate input which can work as ratchet, track and hold or one shot mode.• Assignable VCA input which can be assigned to any output.• On board clock divider• Bipolar CV inputs (except for the VCA input)• Current state storingDIY-Kit-Type:SMD-Kit-1.

Shakmat - Tessitura Tailor

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.Features:• 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 supportedDIY-Kit-Type:SMD-Kit-1.
