Rebel Technology: Klasmata

Post by mars » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:34 am

Hello friends!

we've got our third module out now, Κλάσματα.

It's a single channel, voltage controlled version of Στοιχεῖα. With extended range: up to 32 steps; and reduced footprint at 8hp.

Check out the website for more info:

best,

Oh! This is a welcomed addition to the duet.

edit

dissapointed to see that it is just a reindition of Stoicheia with CV control. I adore your aesthetics and modular concepts so I was hoping for something entirely new. Still, cool!

great. been waiting for CV-able stoeichia since it hit.
any news on the infamous stoeichia CV expander ?
cos if you are going to do it, i will get that, if not sell my stoeichia and buy two of these.

has price been announced?

great modules. keep them coming ...

+1

And if I may, keep the greek/mathematical theme going. You've got the most aesthetically pleasing modules out there and I'd love to see more complex mathematical ideas put into modules. How about something Xenakian of nature, something Stochastic? Lots and lots of ideas to explore!

yes indeed
maths is good ( funny, seems like i've heard that before )

great modules
great aesthetic ( though not the most immediately understandable GUI)

i love the module, but, on the Stochei at least, i have to say that the knobs are too big given how close they are together :-( Its not even a question of fat fingered mofo's ... you'd have to have fingers just a few microns wide to be able to turn them normally.

but whatever, a minor criticism of a great module

No, you're right. The knobs are frustratingly close to each other. But I understand that it was a choice of beauty as they fit the panel so nicely. I tend to play using the tip of my fingers instead of trying to grab them. A little nudge is what it takes; and it turns out to be more musical as well.

The three panels together are simply stunning. Great design.

Very impressed with the first Euclidean sequencer! Look forward to the new 32 step version!

Sounds like these will be in stock soon!

Has anyone else tried running these at audio frequencies?

I just did some tests to see how fast they will go.
All three modules are accurate to >20kHz.
Klasmata can be supersonically clocked at over 55KHz without dropping a trigger - if you've got a fast enough oscillator to drive it!

Klasmata
delay 6uS rising, 4uS falling edge
accurate to 55kHz

Logoi
Divide delay 4.8uS rising, 6.4uS falling
accurate to 30kHz
Count delay 8.8uS rising, 4uS falling
accurate to 25kHz
Delay and Swing minimum delay 400uS
accurate to 1kHz
Count and Divide delay 13.2uS rising, 4.8uS falling
accurate to 25kHz

Stoicheia
delay 8uS rising, 5uS falling edge
accurate to 20kHz

At audio frequencies, the modules generate complex subharmonic square waves. Nice if you want something more interesting than a simple sub osc - though it'll do that too, of course!

Granted, anything running at >20kHz will be inaudible to humans and therefore pretty pointless, lest you make music for canines.

But subharmonics of supersonics can be audible. The sequencers allow you to subdivide a very high frequency into many lower ones, with huge potential for interesting relationships and harmonics.

:hmm: the theory behind it reads fairly simplistic. Would you be so kind as to suggest a simple patch respective of all this?

Patch it the same you would a wave shaper - plug a VCO into the clock input, and the trigger output into a VCA or filter.

Very interested in klasmata. Are they already available? AH?
Also looking for some beat mangling demo.
