C112 Assistants [Available]

Post by Thalassa » Thu Sep 19, 2019 12:08 pm

Important update 08-01-2020

The module is finally avaialble at the online store and also noisebug has it already in stock.

Important update 01-10-2019 : The module has get enough preorders and the it will be released :banana: :banana: . You still can preorder it until the 7th of October and get a 10% discount. If you have already preordered thanks a lot for your support. :hug:


A year ago I've started thread asking for advice designing an utility module. After many good advices from different forum members here it is what can be the next Corsynth module.
The module group together several basic but yet very useful functions like Glide , an attenuverter, an inverter, white and pink noise and a bipolar to unipolar function.

The module is already designed and fully working but since I don't know if there is enough interest for this kind of module I've opened a pre-order period to gauge interest. As other times to pre-order you have to make a 50€ deposit and you get a 10% off from the final price 160€ ( plus vat in the EU). Of course the deposit is fully refundable if the module is not released. Estimated released time is mid of November.

You can find more info about the module and the pre-ordering processes here : https://corsynth.com/home/modules/assistants

MU market is small and if there is no interest in the module is better to invest the money in other modules that can attract more people :tu:

This is the front panel:

And this is the prototype :

Update 04-10-2019

Following some suggestions I modified the module and now it has even more functionality. Now the attenuverter is internally connected to 5V so if nothing is connected to the input it can be used as a voltage source from -5V to 5V. Also the inverter input is internally connected to the attenuverter output. Inserting a jack at the inverter input breaks this connection. This normalization is very useful, a signal an its inverted are available at the same time without the need to use a multiples. Those signals can be used for modulation purposes in many ways for example to patch a Auto Panning effect like on the video

[video][/video]


Patch description

For this patch we use a triangle wave from a LFO patched to the attenuverter input. The output is internally connected to the inverter input. So now we have two triangle waves,one inverted and one normal.

Each triangle wave is patched to the CV input of a VCA. Both VCAs have the same audio input.One of the VCAs is our L output and the other the R output. For a real panning effect, not just jumping from L to R, we need to add a bit of initial gain to the VCAs.

The amount of panning can be controlled with the attenuverter level.

In this patch we are using another LFO to control the frequency of the first LFO to create an interesting panning effect.



The final front panel looks like this :

Good idea. Thought of something like this myself but never got around to making it.

One friendly suggestion though, would be to normal the +/-5V input to a precise +5 source. I'm frequently looking for a constant voltage source and this would be an ideal place to get +5V.

I would buy this.

EDIT: never mind my comment about the noise sources -- I see we already had that discussion.

Thanks :). This kind of functions are not very attractive by themselves but they are really useful and they open a lot of possibilities . About the voltage source if nothing is connected to the +/-5v the 0-5v out has a 2,5v at it's output. Also the attenuverter will have a 5v connected to the input so it can be used as voltage source.

So now it's the time to do it :mrgreen:
Talking seriously the module will be only released if I have enough preorders. So if you think that you would buy it, now it's the moment to pre-order . You don't have nothing to loose if the module is not released the money will be refunded . :)

...or, a 1U fixed filter bank with 12-14 smaller knobs like those on the Dotcom ++ modules. I would buy that in a heartbeat.

why not both..? personally Im no fan of EQs in my modular :) but its a good idea for those that are.. also a 1u polymoog eq section would be useful.. trick is to capture the lovely warm sounding harmonics of these old unit as opposed to just the functionality of them.. the new behringer 808 is a prime example of this..it is overlooked way to often in these premium priced units :)

For me bank filters are interesting when they have individual outputs for each band frequency. If not they are just EQs :)

I've sent a newsletter a couple of days ago to all the people that pre-order the module. Have you received it ? The PCBs arrived last Friday, now I just waiting for the front panels that should arrive in a few days. Everything is going as planned. As soon as I receive the front panels I will start the final assembly.
When the module will be ready for shipping I will sent you a paypal invoice.

Hi guys, I've started to ship the pre-ordered modules :sb: :sb:

I've sent an email to everyone that have pre-ordered it. If you haven't receive it please let me know :)

Wonderful utility module especially for those with limited space or new to MU. If I didn't have these functions covered (over about 5U of space!) it would be a godsend. Nice to see new MU units coming into the mix. :guinness:

Thanks! That's exactly the idea, pack lot of utilities in one module to save space for other modules.
