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

Soundsdivine has announced the release of Creative Impulses, a collection of impulse responses.
A small collection of 64 unique stereo impulse responses made using a range of hardware reverbs in combination with a eurorack modular system.
All IRs are 24bit / 96kHz in .wav format.
The library is available for purchase for 9 EUR. Requires a convolution reverb plug-in.
Creative Impulses are now included with MM+ instrument. Previous customers of MM+ can get a free copy of impulse library.

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of Disting, its latest Eurorack synthesizer module.
The Disting is a 16-in-1 multifunction module, offering a variety of CV and audio processes, including a selection of oscillators (LFOs/VCOs), in a compact 4HP package.
Unlike all previous Expert Sleepers modules, the disting is in no way reliant on a computer connection – it’s a normal, standalone module.
- Precision Adder with integer voltage offsets.
- Four Quadrant Multiplier with integer multiply/divide.
- Full-wave Rectifier.
- Linear/Exponential Converter.
- Slew Rate Limiter with linear and exponential slew.
- Sample and Hold with noise source and adjustable slew rate.
- Comparator with adjustable hysteresis.
- Pitch and Envelope Tracker.
- Quantizer with selectable scales.
- Dual Waveshaper wavefolder and triangle-to-sine shaper.
- Clockable Delay/Echo.
- LFO with through zero frequency control and wave shaping.
- Clockable LFO with multiply/divide and waveshaping.
- VCO with linear FM sine and saw outputs.
- VCO with waveshaping saw/triangle and pulse outputs.
Disting is available for purchase for MSRP £119 GBP/$170 USD.

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