Escalation Dominance

Post by Paranormal Patroler » Thu Jul 24, 2014 11:30 am

It was about time we got a separate thread for this module. Here's what I have so far:

Image

Image


28HP
Audio: 6 Inputs / 2 Outputs (Stereo) / 1 FX Send output / 2 FX Return input jacks (Stereo)
Controls: 6 FX Send knobs / 6 Pan knobs / 1 Rise knob (global) / 1 Fade Knob (global) / 6 Volume Faders / 6 Mute buttons (hoping they turn on when engaged) / 6 Mode buttons (based on what the Guv quote bellow each one addresses the mode of the CV input*)
Control Voltage: 1 Send CV input / 1 Rise CV input (global) / 1 Fall CV input (global) / 6 Channel CV inputs

governor blacksnake wrote:The attack/decay controls the speed at which the sound fades in/out when the mute keys are pressed. *The CV input has three modes: CV level, CV pan, or Envelope Trig, where the instantaneous value of those global A/D controls is sampled and used to control the fade-in as an AD envelope generator per channel. If you CV those envelope times while triggering multiple channels, things can become strange very quickly.

The unit is expandable by Vindication, which adds six attenuate/offset controls to the CV inputs - frees up the main unit's inputs as dedicated envelope triggers (works standalone), and Contempt, which adds metering and dynamics processing to the stereo output (also works standalone).
All rights reserved; all wrongs reversed.

When Scott was in Tokyo for the Festival of Modular in june I asked him about this module, apparently it'll still take some more time before it's released but he's working on it.

The assignable CV input per channel is a great idea, and sliders should make this a very playable module.

So I'm not buying any other mixer until this one arrives, it just has the perfect set of features for me. Well, a headphone out would be great too, actually ;).

I'm hoping that if connected to the Bionic Lester, It will bypass the bionic's channel if we insert a cable in the input line !?!?! :despair:

He wasn't showing a hardware prototype this year. He had a prototype image, but he told me that he's still working on the final feature set. It's pretty beastly.

Still really interested in this, but as looks like the RxMx is about to be released, my performance mixer needs might be resolved via that.

Waiting for this one too. A headphone output would make the module perfect, by the way...

This project is very much alive (I've completed far more complicated work in the meantime) and I'm waiting on two things: a large restock of 2164s (this module uses 7 of them), and I'm also re-doing the layout of the analog section of the PCB which is a time consuming task. Some big modules will be released this fall, so around NAMMtime this mixer will be ready.

Great news ! :sb:
Do you plan on adding a headphones out to the module ? It's the only thing that's missing...

It's about that time. I wonder what we're going to see next week!

On the facebook's page
there's a post saying.....

'''volkmire's escalation'''


The Volkmire's Inferno was mentionned years ago and is supposed to be a granular oscillator. So I bet this means this module along with the Escalation Dominance are on their way to be complete.

Any news on this? I'm hoping it's still a thing. A handful of new modules have been announced and haven't heard anything about this one.
