Deckard’s big love Rachael is back in the form of a new multi-functional Eurorack module (ring modulator, VCO, ADSR or LFO) made by Black Corporation
Almost two weeks ago, the Japanese company Black Corporation introduced the Deckard’s Voice, a Eurorack voice module based on the Deckard’s Dream polyphonic analog Synthesizer. As you know, the name Deckard comes from the movie Blade Runner where Vangelis composed the soundtrack with the legendary Yamaha CS-80. If we already have the voice of Deckard, the second known character of the film must not be missing. Almost sounds like a retro-wave love story made with modules.
Rachael is a new multi-function Eurorack module which works with Deckard’s Voice but also well with other modules. First, it is an analog ring modulator with its own reference oscillator and envelope generator. Clever is here: it works also as an independent VCO, ADSR or LFO. This allows you to expand the functions and possibilities of Deckard’s Voice or any other modular system. Even with the Rachael module, the developers stay true to the gray Deckard’s Dream design
Deckard’s Voice Pre-Order
With the announcement of the Rachael module, Black Corporation has also announced that the Deckard’s Voice module is now available for pre-order. They also published the entire feature list. According to the developer, Deckard’s Voice is an entry-level semi-modular synth for Eurorack systems.
Sharing the same paradigm and circuit as its bigger brother Deckard’s Dream, trimmed down for Eurorack and supplemented with the flexibility available only in a modular format.
