For Superbooth 20 Home Edition, the young and enthusiastic company Ritual Electronics from France presented 6 handy modules in the 1U Eurorack format.
Update: Back at SB20 HE, the young French company Ritual Electronics presented a new range of 1U modules. Three of the announced modules (Flexibilité, Pointeuse, Guillotine) will be out in November and cost between 69€ and 115€.
They have released three new “infotainment”-style videos for the respective 1U releases.
News From May 4, 2020
The company has recently launched some exciting modules: Anima, a complex but easy to use function generator), Miasma, a distortion with interchangeable diodes or also Altar, an 18dB/octave state-variable filter. Now they show 6 new modules that go a different way, more precisely they are made for 1U systems.
They work not only with Intellijel but also with other cases that include a 1U row since they are based on the Eurorack standard.
New Modules For SB20 HE:
Flexibilité is an expression pedal adaptor module with 10HP that offers a foot-controlled attenuator or attenuverter function. The input enables the attenuation of external either audio or CV signals. Without an input signal, it outputs 0/+5v in unipolar mode or -5v/+5v in bipolar mode. You can use a large range of pedals thanks to a reverse polarity switch.
Pointeuse has 12 HP (1U) and is a bidirectional analog footswitch pedal adaptor. It allows foot-controlled momentary & latching mutes of audio or CV signals. You can change its state by pressing a footswitch (via the included adapter expander), the backlit button, or by sending a voltage signal into the Trig In input making the module highly interactive and controllable.
Without an input signal, it outputs 5v and the mute is clickless. Pointeuse is compatible with a wide range of pedals. You can change its state by pressing a
Mangler & Distortion
Then we have Assemblée (14HP) a signal & mangler for audio & CV. It takes two inputs with mute switches and combines them to a single output. Pretty useful for advanced LFOs or envelope shapes. It includes a 6 position rotary knob to set how both signals will be mixed. The outputs can be a mix of max and min values, a combination of both or the same inverted. An additional bipolar output LED allows you to check the signal polarity.
Guillotine (14 HP) is a stereo soft and hard-clipping distortion module. Clever, with its insane amount of gain, it can be used as an instrument adaptor (guitars, basses, microphones) and so brings line levels to modular levels. It includes also a three-way switch to select from three different frequency emphasis.
Krach (6HP) is a dead-simple noise generator with white and pink noise onboard.
Lastly, we have Répression (10HP) a comparator module with CV controlled threshold. The comparator compares a signal to a threshold (0-8V) and when exceeded it outputs a gate. When it’s below the threshold, then the inverted out outputs a gate. If an external signal is patched in the Threshold CV input the knob becomes an attenuator.
First Look Video
I had the chance to talk to Nicolas et Gautier of Ritual Electronics about their latest products and the upcoming 1U modules.
Ritual Electronics 1U modules will be available in November.
