Tangible Waves, the German modular synth developer has today released three new modules for the AE Modular: two drum modules and the Topographic Sequencer. The latter one is a clone of the Mutable Instruments GRIDS Eurorack module.
Crazy but true: at 65€. the Topographic Sequencer is among the most expensive modules currently from Tangible Waves. A nice example of how cheap this modular system is.
New Modules Are:
KICK is a purely analog kick drum generator “which packs a serious punch”. It offers three knobs (pitch, decay drive for distortion) and with the pitch decay switch the pitch follows the amp, giving a different character. Also, a handy trigger button is onboard.
DRUMKIT 010 is a lo-fi digital drum module with 11 banks of drum sounds, which can be triggered independently on six channels. It offers also a bank selector knob for selecting different combinations of the 11 samples, a pitch knob that affects the pitch of all instruments and a reverse button. The developer said: don’t expect high quality from this module – it’s by design a nasty, lo-fi drum sound source, but definitely with its own character. Works great together with the analog
TOPOGRAF is a topographic pattern sequencer with three channels and is a clone of the Mutable Instruments GRIDS module.
