ADDAC System has announced its second module for 2020. The new 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger 3HP Eurorack module provides greater sonic flexibility and nuance when it comes to feeding other modules.

“After developing modules within our T-Networks series, we came to realize how important it is to have the right input signal for firing drum modules or envelopes,” commented André Gonçalves, founder of ADDAC System.

“Gates and Triggers are often looked at as similar signals but at times it really makes a difference and results will change drastically depending if a Gate or a Trigger is fed to the input of such modules.”

With this observation, ADDAC System got to work on was conceived as a simple — yet highly functional — Gate to Trigger module: a four channel converter with bypass switch for each channel. The 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger effectively limits any input Gate to a 1ms trigger, enabling the user to achieve a different sonic outcome.

The ADDAC System 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger will be shipping in mid-February at a price of 70 EUR. It will also be available as a full DIY kit.
