Noise Engineering has announced two new Versio series modules.
Ruina Versio is a new stereo distortion encompassing a number of different distortion concepts, and Electus Versio is a clockable reverb/delay, inspired by the popular Desmodus Versio.
Ruina Versio is available as a dedicated module, or users can update any Versio module to the Ruina or Electus firmwares for free.
Ruina Versio is a stereo distortion and effects module, and DSP platform. It includes the Noise Engineering infinifolder (featured on modules like the Basimilus Iteritas Alter), multiband drive and filtering, a phase control, full-wave rectification, a DOOM knob, and a Smoosh button that adds 128dB of gain to the input when pressed. Rearrange the internal signal chain and activate a notch filter with the flip of a switch.
All knobs are CVable, and the distortion is stereo in and stereo out, meaning you can use it to process all your stereo modules in your system — or, run a mono sound into it and use the effects to create stereo width.
Ruina Versio costs $345 USD, with RV replacement panels available for $20 USD. The hardware will start shipping March 25th, while the firmware update is available to download now.
Electus Versio is a unique atmospheric creation tool: not quite a reverb and not quite a delay, it’s the more aggressive clocked counterpart to the popular Desmodus Versio. It shares most of the same controls with Desmodus, but adds a tap-tempo button, clock input and divider/multiplier, and a switch to choose between three delay structures. It runs the gamut from simple clocked delays to infinite distorted atmospheres and everything in between and beyond.
Electus Versio will not be sold as a separate module, but Versio owners can download Electus now as an alternate firmware for free at the Customer Portal.
