I was hoping to grab one when it came out but it's a bit pricier than I had hoped. Going to need to wait for this one.

Very cool 'though.

Looking very good, appears to pair well with the Ultra Random Analogue.

Interesting module and brilliant video. I wish all new modules had such an excellent and clear overview.

Very cool. Does it remember it's mode after being powered off?

If the 4th mode is a combination of the 3 others, why include it when using the mode switch input ?

nope. it powers up in the 'Pink" mode.. just tried it a few times on the demo system in the shop.

not a deal breaker for me. i'll be getting one soon. it's a lot of fun and very versatile. sample hold + random plus gate out.. clock in.. makes for lot's of patching in a little module and lot's of options. can get really weird quite easily or just spit out lot's of nice funky random stuff.

guessing because it'll land in a random spot each time? but i'm glad it is included when cycling through the modes w/a trigger. it adds another unexpected bit to things.

Looks really nice, fully equipped with cv, gates and noise output.
Maybe I would have prefered to lock with a switch the "noise color" to unbind it from the knob control. In that way you could have a fixed noise for your HH or whatever and be free to modulate the gate distribution.

Shameful question, is it available in both black or silver versions at any dealers or have one to ask which version is in stock?

Thanks for checking. Hmmm, that's a shame. For me soft switches = broken patches. I wish more manufacturers would use good old fashioned h/w toggle switches.

did i understand it clearly - it can do everything wogglebug can do plus some extras, also it's digital - right?

The 4th mode is a unique algorithm in its own right.

The 4th mode's output voltage is a combination of smooth, stepped, and audio rate signals but is unique from simply using the rand algo switch to progress through algorithms.
It tends to be a bit more chaotic and unwieldy than the other algos.

Hope that helps!

Yes, it is digital.

The design is based around an 8 bit microcontroller.

i've been really enjoying the nano rand.. it's become my go-to random module for its power and simplicity.

i like having all the different randomness happening at the same time.. the clocked stuff, the noise, the random out.. i think comparisons to the wogglebug are justified for these reasons.. like the bug's burst and stepped and smooth outs.

but i find the nanorand simpler (i had to get a grayscale panel for my wogglebug just so i could remember what functions were where) and it's a quick grab-and-use module ... but also has tricks that make it deeper to explore.

at some point soon i want to try it as a clock source for rene.

nice job, guys!

Just bumping this thread as I haven't seen any other mention of this module. Looks like a lot of random fun. I'm wondering how it would compliment my SSF URA. At first glance it seems like there are some definite similarities but also some obvious differences. Does anyone who has both care to comment?

The URA does so much and I'm just getting my head around it, but my GASis strong with this little guy... :omg:

I have both and nano is great for extra randomness. Feed ura clock into nano and get "musical gates". The switching random algorithms with triggers is fun too, again feed gate out from ura to trigger jack.

If you need more random it's great at only 4hp.

If you have a small rig and would like some random it's great too.

On the flip side the ura is a mighty mighty module and I wouldn't replace it for anything :tu:
