Audio Damage Mad Hatter

Audio Damage has launched Mad Hatter, a new Eurorack format digital noise module.

What do you get when you take a shift register noise generator and the six-square-wave oscillator stack from the TR606 cymbal source and put ‘em in one unit? Mad Hatter!

As a digital noise source, Mad Hatter is, well, as versatile as a digital noise source can really be. The COLOR control and CV input is the clock speed of the shift register, from chaotic oscillations to white noise.

This noise is then paired with the oscillator stack, six square waves at frequencies measured from our own TR-606. (For added versatility, the COLOR knob also controls the pitch of two of those oscillators, sweeping them over a 1-octave range.) The oscillators run through a pair of bandpass filters, in the same manner as the TR-606’s cymbal sound.

This whole mess goes to a high-pass filter, with a frequency controlled with the HPF FILTER FREQ knob and CV input. After that, it’s out the out-hole to your favorite VCA, for easy-to-patch hi-hat and cymbal sounds.

Mad Hatter features

  • Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
  • COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.
  • HPF FREQ knob controls high-pass filter frequency.
  • CROSSFADE knob mixes from audio input, through noise, to oscillator stack.
  • CV control of all parameters.
  • 8HP panel size.
  • Skiff-friendly 20mm depth.
  • 90ma current draw.

Mad Hatter is available for purchase for $189 USD.

Audio Damage releases Sequencer 1 for Eurorack modular system

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audio Damage has announced the release of Sequencer 1, a full-featured CV/gate sequencer for the Eurorack modular synthesis system.

Audio Damage Sequencer 1

Our goal, when creating Sequencer 1, was to make the most sophisticated sequencer for Eurorack, and we believe we’ve achieved that goal.

The complete feature list of Sequencer 1 is too long for this e-mail. Highlights include 1V/Oct and Hz/Volt operation for control of virtually all vintage and modern non-MIDI equipment, SD card (on back of unit) for storage and extremely simple firmware updates, ratcheting and Replicant-style repeats available from the front panel, three (!) tempo-synced LFOs with over 20 waveforms, up to 64 steps per pattern, and multiple modulation targets.

We are incredibly proud of this, our flagship product, and have an update roadmap for some absolutely ludicrous features.

Sequencer 1 is available for purchase for $699 USD.

Audio Damage releases Basic synth plugin

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 08, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audio Damage has launched Basic, a monophonic synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Audio Damage Basic

While it is designed with ease-of-use, low cost, and simplicity in mind, the panel sits in front of a powerful modern synthesizer engine with an aggressive tone and self-resonating filters that scream when pushed. We’re sure every electronic musician will find a place in the mix for Basic.

Basic features

  • Three alias-free wavetable oscillators with six waveforms each, and oscillator sync.
  • A pair of cascaded filters featuring MS20-style lowpass and highpass, and a bandpass of our own design.
  • A four-waveform tempo-syncable LFO with waveshaper.
  • ADSR envelopes for amplitude and filter frequency.
  • User-definable soft-saturation.
  • A simple and easy-to-understand workflow, inspired by the classic topology of vintage analog synths like the Minimoog, SEM, and MS20, but with modern usability.
  • Touchscreen-friendly and highly visible user interface.
  • DRM-free, for easy installation and updating.

Basic for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $39 USD until September 4th, 2014 (regular $49 USD).

Audio Damage releases Æverb Eurorack reverb

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 23, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audio Damage has announced the release of its Æverb Eurorack reverb module.

Audio Damage Æverb

Audio Damage Æverb is a digital reverb running a feedback delay network algorithm (commonly called “FDN”). The algorithm consists of eight short delays running through eight low-pass filters, with the feedback paths summed in to a single source that provides both the output to the mix and the input to the delays themselves.

This type of reverb algorithm is generally considered “vintage” sounding, and is useful in electronic music for its thick, non-realistic behavior.

The Æverb module is available from Audio Damage’s preferred retail partners, priced at $189 USD / 179 EUR.
