so beautiful.

new:

BOOMBOX
JELLYSQUASHER (?)
RAINMAKER (?)

Check https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=152945

Jellysquasher is a comp
Rainmaker is a 16 step spectral processor/resonator

Interesting, did not expect to see a compressor from Intellijel.

Rainmaker looks cool too, but takes up a lot of HP. Not a lot of info yet of course, but a spectral rhythm delay and comb resonator must be a cool thing.

Nice!

I didn't know about the 1U modules. Very cool to see that getting adopted as a standard. I wonder if they'll have more success with the Boombox than Critter & Guitari had with the IIO?

Wonder why C&G didn't get much success with the IIO. I have one that I really like, and ended up buying a 2nd one when they halved its price last month.

Isn't it something similar to comb filter ?
Similar to Buchla 296

That thing looks absolutely absurd. Looks like 16 taps of clockable delay+pitch shift + comb resonator with CV over everything and tons of mod configurations. Looks more like a eurorack eventide box than anything.

It's an interesting question. I thought it was a great idea for a module...that I couldn't -- quite -- justify the rack space for.

I guess a lot of people already have their monitoring figured out, and the additional convenience/portability of a built-in speaker just didn't call to them, even at $50.

The midi interface built into the case and top tile means an easy add of any interface you'd like.

Not to compare but at least in the Euro world I'd venture to say that Intellijel is becoming the strongest single mfg. They have the most complete range as far as general utility modules goes and plenty of esoteric/unique offerings. Not quite to Doepfer level but getting real close.

Guessing that the C&G was a fairly regular Amp (hence 750mA max draw) and could imagine that Intellijel may have gone with a modern class D [I know very little, but *think* that'd be much lower current draw - important in modular land]

That's kinda how I felt about the Shapeshifter and ended up parting with it. It's an amazing OSC, no question. The interface, menu diving, presets, etc just isn't what I want out of my modular though. Just looking at the panel of Rainmaker has me thinking the same thing, regardless of how amazing it sounds.

It just doesn't look playable. It looks like something that you'd work with at length to get a setting that you like (and it probably allows you to save the setting) and then let it do it's thing in your patch/track/composition/etc. Plenty of people like to work that way...nothing wrong with that...it's just not the way I use my modular.

For clarity, this is how I use my modular:

For me, the beauty of modular synthesis is that complexity arises from combining relatively simple functional building blocks in an intuitive and playful manner. I don't want to be absorbed by a single module – what I value is the physicality of connecting modules to create a complex music system. I think these new super-modules induce a linear patching style and reduce the modular aspect to modulation routing. After all, there is only so much complexity one can cope with when writing or performing music.

Very impressed with the new Intellijel Empire, and Danjel as always comes across as a very lovely guy eh.
taylor12k
can anyone confirm if the modules are white or silver?

would love for them to be silver, would make building a system with my current ATLANTIS + METRO a bit easier!

tho the white is very beautifully Dieter Rams-ian

They look silver to me in the vid.

The rainmaker is eminently playable and tweakable with voltage control over almost everything. It will be good in the club (are you listening RIchard Devine) and in the studio.

I have put up a couple of demos on my soundcloud. The first is some Krell, where I was just tweaking away with the Rainmaker and a Cyclebox. The second is multitracked showing off a bit the resonator. It can do a lot more.

This is just a taste though! You thought the Shapeshifter was deep...

Damn, I wonder if we will see the midi in as a seperate 1u to recreate the umidi in the smaller cases. Inputs, outputs, attenuators multi logic and mixers are all perfect for that size.

These new modules look great. I don't mind some menu-diving and digital UI paradigm shifting, one knob per function is only going to take you so far.

In the photo posted to Facebook I noticed some subtle design changes on the panels too, larger titles at the top (even on existing modules), slightly different graphical treatments in a few places, and the new logo. Bit of a branding realignment.

Nice work Danjel and team.

With the exception of a couple of lesser-used parameters it's one button per function and then the encoder to change, so there's not much menu diving. That's why there's so many buttons smile

Yes. You can see it in some of the shots of the 7U case. For the 4U cases it's the same but with an additional tile for the jacks. In the 7U there's a ribbon that just goes to the rear jacks.

Another quick Rainmaker demo, this one showing off the pitch shifters (there are 18 of them on the Rainmaker). Don't play this song late at night, because its a little creepy.

Note: raindelay was the initial codename for the module when we were developing it. This demo is almost a year old and done on an early prototype.

I guess jury's out until there are some hands/ears-on impressions but that's a really decent price for a compressor that full-featured... in the same price range as the FMR stuff, etc. but with a bunch of modular bells and whistles.

Kind of a drag there's not at least linked stereo, but w/e.

I dunno. Based on the first video posted on p.2, it seems pretty clear that it's just a speaker. And $140.

But the more I think about, the more I feel like it would be awesome to slap two of these into a battery powered 7U Intellijel case, prop it on my shoulder, and strut down the street all 80s style. All that would be missing is a cassette tape module under full cv control.

With the size that speaker is, it has the potential to sound pretty decent. If I had the HP to spare, I'd love that. (Maybe in the next case, then....)

I think the spacing problem has more to do with the rails used. Pulp Logic tiles only work with Vector Rails. I think the raised lip on these would get in the way. Hard to to tell from the photos I've seen.

I'm not 100% sure of what I'm going to say because I wasn't able to try it. But during my research on 1U modules and rails, I found http://clicksclocks.de/ who sells 1U frames and I asked him few questions about 1U modules with his frames, especially Pulplogic one.

For reference, his rails also have a raised lip:



I'll quote him:
Quote:

The main problem is the PCB height, which is defined with 28.7 mm. If they [PulpLogic] would have said 25 mm it would work with all rails types. This is why I think it is a misconception.

My 4U frames are slightly higher (181 mm, which doesn't make them exact 4U). The 1U part is 28.3 mm inner height, and it can be, that some PCBs are to big. So far just a few customers had problems. Some of them sanded the PCBs to fit them it.


So I concluded that some 1U modules can fit with other rails, I asked PulpLogic about sanding the PCBs a bit:

Quote:
For the most part, all the tiles use the 1.130" height standard. You could probably file the tiles down 0.010" on each side without doing any damage, but I shouldn't recommend that.


Yeah, sanding down a module does not really make it works with other rails, but it could be a solution.

Also something important about Pulplogic modules is that they are only compatible (again, not tested) with M2.5 Hardware. Source: http://pulplogic.com/1u_tiles/

So It's just speculation at the moment. What I wanted to say with this post was that 1U tiles aren't so simple and we can only wait to have to have some official infos about measurement and compatibility but let's just hope that Intellijel try to use some standards that fit with already existing 1U row.

Rainmaker seems like a sound designers dream module. Looking at the specs, I get the impression that demos don't come close to the depth of sounds that this is capable of. This looks to me, like a gamechanger module. I also think its just the menu diving that could put people off.

No, I've been working on these ideas since 2012. By the time Clouds appeared our prototype was more or less where it is now.

But the Strymon Timeline and the SoundToys EchoBoy were definite inspirations. It is cool to see the Strymon euro modules.

Here's a quick rundown of the features/specs of the Rainmaker:

• Stereo delay line with 16-taps
• Each of the 16 taps has its own set of audio processors:
o 2nd order resonant multi-mode filter (LP,BP,HP) with adjustable cutoff frequency and resonance
o Level and Balance setting, with quick mute capabillity
o +/- 1 octave granular pitch shifter (1,2 or 4 grains with adjustable grain size)
• Delay line feedback can be taken from any of the 16 taps (pre-filter) or from the sum of the 16 taps (post-filter)
• Delay line feedback has its own pitch shifter and 1st-order tone filter
• Global delay time can be set either by manual entry with the encoder, or by an external clock (with adjustable clock divider), or by tap tempo button.
• Individual tap delays are set according to one of 16 preset patterns (grooves)
• Global delay time modulation by an LFO with 8 selectable waveforms
• Delay times range from 0.1 millisecond to 20 seconds.
• Delay buffer freeze and reverse
• Taps can be piled on top of each other to give complex filtering and chord effects
• Global pitch shift control which transposes the delay line output by +/- 1 octave

• Stereo multi-tap comb resonator
• Comb can have between 1 and 64 taps allowing for complex resonances
• Three different nonlinear comb feedback structures for spectral shaping
• Comb is pingable to give physically-modeled guitar, sitar, clarinet(ish) types of sounds
• 16 different comb tap spacing patterns
• Global comb time can be set either by manual entry with the encoder, or by an external clock (with adjustable clock divider), or by a 1v/oct control voltage.
• Global comb time modulation by an LFO with 8 selectable waveforms
• Comb times range from 0.1 millisecond to 20 seconds.

• 96KHz, 24-bit (32-bit internal) signal processing
• Most parameters are controllable by external control voltages, either directly or through the two auxiliary modulation inputs (MODA, MODB)
• 128 Factory preset and 128 User preset storage
• (audio-rate) randomization of all parameters, or selectable subsets

No, I've been working on these ideas since 2012. By the time Clouds appeared our prototype was more or less where it is now.



Do you have any examples of the module doing granular style effects?

We wanted to do a bit of a graphics refresh and we switched to using a new digital CMYK printing process as it allows us many more color options for graphics and no alignment issues between colors. In order to use this new process we had to use a different kind of metal plate which happens to have a different kind of finish. imho they look substantially nicer too!

there was a long discussion about this here already, including comments from Intellijel directly (so not just hearsay).

Bottom line: they are not compatible. The Intellijel 1u tiles were designed such that the 4U system actually fits in a 4u rackspace, and 7u fit in a 7u rackspace. The existing specs did not allow for this, the 4u is actually a bit larger than 4u (owing to the size of the rails).
The difference is not much, 3mm or so, if I remember correctly, but sufficient to make both version incompatible with each other. Which is very unfortunate.

There's some more info here:

While I was there, I talked to Danjel about his 1U tile modules, and why he went away from the format others had been creating to date for tiles. He explained that once you included issues like room for a lip in the rack rails, the system others had been following to date didn’t fit cleanly in a true 1U space, causing some issues for racking. He also made what he felt were other design enhancements in power connection etc., and has offered to share all of his specs with other manufacturers in hopes of establishing a better “standard” before 1U tiles become too big of a market segment to change.

So yeah looks like there's a format war brewing. Great.
LoveBot
I was digging around trying to find the link to the discussion but can't seem to locate it. So wait, the Pulplogic Mainframe 3U+1U does not exactly fit into 4U in a regular 19" studio rack? Or am I not understanding correctly? I ask because I have a plan to imminently combine a row of 5U, 3U+1U into a single 19" 9U case.

Intellijel wrote:
I knew there was a potential for some controversy with our choice of sizing for the 1U modules but we honestly had no ulterior motives behind this other than being the only practical way we could make them work with our design.

As far as following the lead of those who had come before us that is exactly what we did: we calculate sizes based on official 1U rack standards and Doepfer Eurorack measurements.

Given that 1U = 1.75" and a 1U tile panel is 1.7" that would only leave 0.025" for each rail lip (0.6mm!) and that is without accounting for size tolerances and extra spacing which is usually about +/-0.2mm

It was important for us that the 4U cases fit perfectly in a 4U rack space. This requirement drove all the other sizing.

We also looked at Doepfer 3U specs in terms of distance of panel holes relative to edge of 3U space, panel size vs. opening, rail thickness etc.

We also wanted to keep using the 5x2 pin headers for power so that the modules would be compatible with standard power supplies.

I actually think the idea on Tiles to use a mini header is very clever but it does not work for our modules since we have some that will be using the CV/gate bus and +5V rails.

yes, indeed. But I can just quote what Intellijel said (see above & and the entire thread, big discussion there). Since I have neither the pulplogic case nor the new Intellijel, I cannot say anything meaningful beyond that (but I checked the Clicks and Clocks 4u brackets and they indeed are more than 4u).

EDIT: Intellijel states "1U Panel height = 44.45 - 4.85mm = 39.6mm so this is the height our panels are". Pulplogic/Erthenvar tiles are 1.7'' (approx 43mm). The difference (according to specs) is not much, but it seems to be sufficient to prevent mix-and-match.

Can someone help explain to me exactly how the link connections work on compressors (the Jellysquasher)?

I understand the theory that it makes the compressors behave the same on stereo as to not mess up the image. I'm more interested in what signal precisely comes out of the link jack. Would it basically be a VCA CV or something? Would linking two compressors together make one of them be a master and the other one ignore it's input for determining compression amount and just compress according to the other linked compressor? Do I still have to have the knobs set identically on both units for a consistent sound?

But that is because the rails you are using in this do not have any lip at all so they are atypical to the most commonly used rails (e.g. doepfer, tiptop etc.)

As stated in the other thread I made my calculations on the panel size to be the same ratio as the panels used by doepfer in the 3U size.

This is the only way it would work with our extrusions that have lips.

It just doesn't look playable.

The LINK out is essentially an envelope follower or the control signal you would use to adjust the gain of the VCA that the audio is being fed through.

If both compressors get fed the same control signal then they get compressed the same way. The user would have to make sure that other settings match such as which color circuits are engaged and input levels.

All the controls in blue (threshold, ratio, attack, and decay) basically determine the shape of this control signal relative to the incoming audio.

no problem I will make that clear that we wanted our 1U modules to work with rails that had lips. Really the whole reason we made these was not to invent a new standard but to have a place to put the i/o points for power, midi and audio modules. I really wish I could have made it work with existing tiles!

I'm curious about the Rainmakers pitch-shifting.

In the demo video, it sounds like the pitch is quantised (steppy) when modulated or adjusted by the pot. Maybe its a setting?

Can anyone from intellijel confirm if this is the case?

Yes, exactly. The groove amount cross-fades the selected groove pattern and a uniform spacing. So, if you have selected the swing groove pattern, the groove amount gives you the amount of swing.

Keep in mind that you can mute some of the 16 taps to give more control over tap spacing.

The global pitch shift (knob in the lower left) is not quantized at all. It is continuous. However, the delay time and pitch shift values are updated at the zero crossings of the grain envelopes to prevent glitching. So if you change the pitch shift value quickly, you will get stepping since the updates will occur at regular intervals.

Choosing a smaller grain size will reduce this stepping, but may cause some audible modulation depending on the source. Also, using 4 grains reduces the stepping as compared with using 2 grains, although it creates more noticeable comb filtering. There is some random variation in the grain onsets to break the comb effect somewhat.

The per-tap pitch shift is quantized to semitone intervals, but there is also a per-tap fine adjustment (detune) as well.

Oh, and did I mention there are 18 stereo pitch shifters on this module? And they can all run at the same time for some glorious madness.

Thanks, I was thinking about this before you replied, at first I was a bit concerned that you wouldn't be able to edit the times individually, but on reflection maybe having to edit all 16 of them might be a bit too much of a pain. Are the patterns already I decided? I hope there are some mathematical ones, primes, Fibonacci, irrational numbers...

What about the grid and piles stuff? Is that a way to reassign the taps?

The UI looks well thought out.

The comb patterns are mainly mathematical, including fibonacci. The groove patterns include the usual swing patterns, and a few common rhythm patterns taken from drum machines, and there are some random patterns. There is also a way to randomly perturb the patterns.

The grid is essentially a #taps per beat setting.

The piles group together sets of taps to have the same delay time (so they pile on top of each other). So you could, for example, have four groups with 4 taps each. The pitch shift setting for the 4 taps within a pile could be selected so as to play a chord for example. Or you could set the filters for each tap in the pile to different center frequencies, giving a simple filter bank.

ok, my Qs:
- whats the relation between the Delay and the comb filter, is there any ?
- i see a clock AND a trig input on the delay. Is it for stepping thru presets ? what else ?
- switches: FX-ON -and- mute. What *excatly* do they do ?
- global clock: why no control over CV ? could it be added in a later update if you wanted ?
- why not more than +/- 1oct pitch shift ? looks soundwise like quite a bit of a waiste of potential here. 2oct at least would would be VERY welcome !....up to 3 probably ( yes, i use this all the time in my MPC (...working out from PRG edit mode))

The delay and comb filter are independent.

The clock is the usual delay clock, and acts like the tap tempo button.

The trigger is not necessarily part of the delay. It can also affect the comb. It can trigger many different actions, such as freezing the delay buffer, causing a randomization of parameters, muting the comb, etc. And it can be done at audio rate. There is no stepping through of presets (that makes less sense for an effects module than for an oscillator)

The mute for the delay and comb sets the input to these to zero, but feedback signals can keep recirculating. The bypass, on the other hand, sets the output to the input. Pretty standard, just like on delay pedals.

There is no global clock. There is a clock for the delay and a clock for the comb. The omission of a 1v/oct control for the delay time was a design decision due to noise issues. You can use a VCO driving the clock input - that works very well. There is a 1v/oct input for the comb, however.

Actually the pitch shift range is more than +/- 1 octave, it is -16 to +15 semitones. The global pitch shift can also give an extra octave or so of range.

One thing that has really caught my ear lately are resonator modules. Seems like a new area of synthesis that is being explored at a module level.

I'm in the same boat, really loving the sound of resonator's.
Waiting on a delivery of the 4ms SMR, can't wait to give that a try.
Saving room for the Rainmaker, might pull the trigger on that once more is revealed.
Rings and Elements sound amazing as well. Sure you can't go wrong with any or all is these modules. Too many decisions, all are very unique in their own way.

Yes. You can do delay into comb or comb into delay, or have them in parallel. Or just have comb alone or delay alone. Or even just silence if that's your thing (but there are cheaper modules that give you this).

The rainmaker is mostly digital. The analog part is the input and output buffers and the wet/dry mix.

Yes the Rainmaker is very intriguing.

I will definitely want to test drive this beast in the studio to get some serious hands-on feel for it. I "think" it will be a powerful device for crazy processing and structure developments, but it seems a bit too expensive to just impulse buy... ;-)

thanks for clarifying, i had been imagining patches with the rainmaker slowly mutating over time with more subtle randomization via gating trig in and having aux mod a effect random probability and aux mod b effect random range (a bit like the patch mutator inside the nord g2).

certainly not the end of the world and i imagine similar sorts of patches can be had feeding the cv ins instead, looking forward to reading the manual when it becomes available wink

It'll be interesting once the details are shown. As in, what do the Beta f(fx) buttons do, and if the sync jack is in or out. If it's an input, then for me it'll be more useful than the triger which cannot sync to external clock.

Even at face value though, toggled, gate and clock functions would a a lot of fun for performance.

It'll be interesting once the details are shown. As in, what do the Beta f(fx) buttons do, and if the sync jack is in or out. If it's an input, then for me it'll be more useful than the triger which cannot sync to external clock.

Even at face value though, toggled, gate and clock functions would a a lot of fun for performance.


Agreed, I didn't mean simple to be an insult, I just wasn't sure if there was more info out there than a picture as I tend to miss a lot of stuff.


Oh no, I understood you. I was just saying that since it's an early prototype details might be scarce yet.

I'm going to have to make space for it though. Looks super useful.

I'm still experimenting with the pusher functions. Currently there is a gate/trigger looper that will quantize start and end based on the incoming sync, operated with the small button. Someone at NAMM already asked about quantizing the triggers themselves, so I will see if there's a clear way to fit that in the UI.

Currently no alternate functions for clock or toggle mode, but I have some ideas...

There are clipping/saturation circuits on each of the major pathways (feedback, filtering). The comb has three different types of feedback circuits. One is straight clipping, the other two have nonlinear characteristics. Thus the sound of the comb when driven to self-oscillation will be different depending on which is chosen.

This is a demo of the Rainmaker doing a simple 2-tap delay but with buffer freeze and reverse, and global pitch shifting.

The audio source is taken from the public domain librivox site.

This! I'd even appreciate a "we're still finalizing pricing but it should be less than X (where X is totally safe over estimate)" so I can either budget for an IJ case (or two) or pick up pair of those TTA cases, or the new Malekko 12U.

I'll be honest, the first show floor demos I heard featured a lot of the pitch-shifting effect, which isn't my thing. But as I've heard other sources run through it and wrapped my head around the other aspects. Um, I'm down! It's so deep, though. Is it too deep? eek!

Was that powered? I assume yes?

That's a really solid price for the 7U case assuming it has all the stuff on the back as shown at namm.

I saw on the NAMM 2016 Euro thread that the Intellijel tiles are 6mm short of 1U. There is a pic of someone holding a blank 1U tile next to the Intellijel tiles and it looks to be true.

They did. Intellijel derived their 1U tiles from the Doepfer spec; Pulp Logic and Earthenvar didn't.

Someone needs to make a 1U thread, sticky it, and point everybody there when this comes up.

Citizen klaus didn't say there was a Doepfer 1U spec, he said Intellijel derived from the Doepfer spec, which is correct. The spec says "The final height of the front panels is a bit less than 133.4 mm (3U) as the rim of the mounting rails has to taken into consideration". PulpLogic decided to make their tile panels exactly 1U to get a bit of extra PCB space, which was possible because they use Vector rails, but it means their tiles are not compatible with all rails.

Besides that, there's no real 1u spec either. monome's is 1.25u I think, there's erthenvar's vector based size, I think someone said the make noise bus bar is a little different, and who know what Vermona or birdkids based theirs on.

We wanted to do a bit of a graphics refresh and we switched to using a new digital CMYK printing process as it allows us many more color options for graphics and no alignment issues between colors. In order to use this new process we had to use a different kind of metal plate which happens to have a different kind of finish. imho they look substantially nicer too!

No existing design for this but it may be possible in the future. The joiners in question will be for connecting two 4U cases.

I love the idea that they can be joined together. Curious to see the hardware. The 4ms modular cases do this already, but the addition of the 1U row really differentiates the Intellijel.

Just eyeballing the dimensions, but it seems like most of the 6hp wide Intellijel modules could be adapted to the 1U row?

Me too, the 84hp led me to go elsewhere for a new case. An expandable 7U 104hp would be awesome. I reckon the Intellijel module design is about the best out there, lots of great stuff, but this just misses.

If you see the cases in person, they look extremely well balanced with the 84hp size. Also since a lot of the utility functions are built in to the 1U row there's less need for the case to be wider. The 84hp size also allowed us to use existing widely-available rails which make the case more affordable.

The 4U cases are built as a one piece custom aluminum extrusion. Since it's an extruded process they can be made any length as long as the overall shape is the same.

Ah, ok. Thanks for the explanation.

I'd still prefer a 104HP version though wink.
tebs213
I guess one solution would be to put two 4u 104hp cases together? Still would be cheaper than a lot of solutions, but am I correct in that the 4u cases don't have the built in ins and outs and midi? Can't say I'd complain about 208hp of 1u. Plenty of room for lots of quad attenuators!
tebs213
Also, making the 4u and 7u cases able to connect would be super clutch. At 84hp that would be a solid alternative long term for me instead of a 7u 104 if it's not going to be made.

If anyone's curious, I e-mailed Danjel about the Jellysquasher's input capabilities and he said it needs euro level signals to function properly. That's what I expected to hear, but I figured some more info would be nice.

just ordered one of the 4U cases, emailed danjel about it before i ordered asking about the possibility of having the ins/outs and midi jacks on the back of the case, like the 7U case. he said that currently is not an option but that you could easily drill out holes for the ins/outs yourself, but midi might be a bit trickier to drill/mount yourself

Yes you can fit a springray tank. The case depth is 80mm (same as our 4U cases) and the power supply only occupies one row.

Very excited for this year's Intellijel releases... to put it mildly.

How does the VCF work - does it filter the sidechain input only? If nothing was patched into the Sidechain, would it filter the Input signal or leave it alone?

I'm guessing if you wanted to use the filter by itself you'd patch your signal into the Sidechain and out of the VCF Output...

Just a question that popped into my head. Looking forward to scooping this one up.

Hokay so I have several intellijel related questions, and I figure here is where to post them (plus search is down and I can't find individual threads)...

1) The Atlantis webpage has been updated and says:
Quote:
The Atlantis has a header on the rear for connecting to a Metropolis via a 6-pin ribbon cable. With the ribbon cable in place, you do not need to connect the GATE or PITCH outputs of the Metropolis to the Atlantis with patch cables, the connections are already made.
You can still break the normal connections by connecting a patch cable to the Atlantis inputs, and the Metropolis can simultaneously be used to control another module from its front panel outputs.


Bold emphasis mine. Is this new? Everything I read before stated that if you used the link you could not drive Atlantis with alternate 1V/Oct & Gate, and it is fixed to Metropolis.

2) Is the Atlantis & Metropolis faceplates still being updated? Earlier it was mentioned that we would be able to order new faceplates. Any idea of ETA?

3) Now that at least 2 ppl have 7u system (according to instagram!), is there an ETA & Price?

As an aside (since I can't find the Atlantis standalone thread) has anyone tried using Atlantis as a complex oscillator? I have an external wavefolder (Snazzy FX Tidal Wave). I haven't really done it before because the modulation osc has no modulation input itself. I was thinking I could use the filter and it's modulation input to do this, but I'm not really sure.

1. I'll have to confirm that, I was told it works that way when I wrote that part of the manual but I had some problems with at least one of those when I tried it recently.
2. Once other modules are also updated, still waiting on some more complex panels like the Shapeshifter.
3. We weren't satisfied with the finish on the sidecheeks when we received them end of last week so they're now being refinished. Should be getting those parts back next week.

You can definitely do FM on the Atlantis using the mod oscillator. It will track pitch too if you use the link switch. You can only modulate mod depth manually though, not with an envelope.
geremyf
Hi, Thanks for the response. I meant doing cross-mod between the main osc and the mod osc. There is no way to modulate the mod osc itself. You can mod the filter when it is in high resonance mode, but then there is no way to control the ratio relationship between the filter (as osc) and main osc, unless I'm missing something. I guess that is one reason a lot of folks place a dixie next to the Atlantis.

Do you mean mod the mod osc? You can definitely mod the main osc, there's even a dedicated slider for that. You could cross-mod the mod oscillator by patching one of the main oscillator outputs to its 1v/oct, but you'd probably want an external attenuator.
geremyf
Sorry I edited my post but yes, mod the mod osc.

So I can do:
Main Osc -> 1V/Oct input to Mod Osc & Wavefolder -> VCA
Mod Osc -> Main Osc.

Yes, all of that I guess was pushed a little to get the Rainmaker out first. Both the boombox and jellysquasher are now listed on Cobtrol's website as coming soon.

As for the 7u, not sure if final price was announced, but I'm sure it's also being released very soon. It's worth the wait though, they really though of everything with this case. The shoulder strap that clicks into place, the fold up legs with adjustable height, build in handle, beautiful lid... It's a really smart and aesthetically pleasing design.

The Jellysquasher appears now in stock at Cymru Beats. Very tempting, but after buying a Rainmaker and Just Friends, I'm broke. Any news about the manual, to read it in the meantime?

Also, I think the Jellysquasher deserves it's own thread, but I can't remember if there is one already. I tried searching for it, but I'm getting no results, what makes me suspect the search engine is not working yet.

Agreed! A 1U VCA would be sweet.

That would be nice, BUT, I'd love to see their 1u go into stuff that would either be difficult in 3u (like, a big row of touch controls or sequencer, an extended uStep with more channels and maybe 16steps, etc).

But the 1u they have now are great. The uMIDI is solid, quadratt is beyond handy since you can break down the mix even more (2x 2-1 mixing for instance).

It'll be interesting to see what's next. I can already see me adding another 7u attached to the first. Looks amazing.

Thanks. I think you guys need to go wide.

Argh, the retailer I preordered from got some of those but apparently there's just one busboard for the whole case.

I'd need something like 30 connectors to fit all my modules waah

Seriously wondering if I should get this one or not now, it's perfect apart from that but 20 connectors for 6U is just not enough very frustrating
oscillateur
Would it be safe/ok to connect a passive busboard (4ms bus stick for example) to one of the Intellijel's connectors in order to be able to fit more than 20 modules in that case ?

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who has an average module width of less than 8.4 HP...

It's possible but you would lose some benefits of the star grounding configuration of the power supply.

You could install a second power supply in the case and chain it off the TPS80W. There's second set of power lugs on the board for this purpose. So long as both supplies are under the 90W limit of the power brick, or you get a power brick which is of a higher rating but still fits the same connector.

Thanks for the answer. I'll get a 4ms Bus Stick with the case, then. The power is more than enough for my needs, it's just about the number of connectors. I'll make sure to put modules that could benefit from the star grounding on their own sockets (Pamela's Workout, etc.).

I like small modules, the total count for the 7U will probably be at least 30...
Jondue
I picked up a 4U 104HP case from Control Voltage last night. So far, I love it! My only minor complaint is that it didn't come with a cord to connect the power brick to an electrical socket in the wall. I'm sure there's a reason, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time so I could be prepared with a spare cord.

Trivial complaint aside, it looks great, it sounds great, and feels solid. Nicely done Intellijel smile

Do the 7u cases have audio input/output built in, or does one need to purchase the 1u module separately?

The jacks are built in to the case. The modules must be purchased separate. This is so if you buy multiple cases you don't necessarily have to have multiple audio and MIDI interfaces that you don't need.

You still need to buy the Audio I/O 1U and µMIDI 1U modules. They can connect to the jacks on the rear so you don't need the corresponding Audio I/O Jacks 1U and µMIDI Jacks 1U modules.

Standard euro headers. The maximum height when propped up is either 18cm or 20cm, depending on which angle the feet are at (there are two positions).

Regarding the audio in/outs, it would be great to have a small 1U module with just 4 jacks that connect to the ones in the case and do fixed gain amplification/attenuation from modular level to line level. Perfect to interface with effect pedals, mixers, etc. without using much space.

not to be pedantic but a small demonstration or something done in pictures showing how the case and the 1U modules and in outs on the case work would be awesome, as of now I'm slightly confused if i buy a case do I still need to grab the 1u in out tiles to have access to those or how does it work..?

i started this thread with such lust over the new intellijel stuff, that i figure i'd proudly show my new intellijel-only system that just arrived from danjel i couple of days ago! i can say, that even though i have a large Goike case with all sorts of modules in it, having a smaller, focused, portable, couch-able, built-in speaker system is super inspiring and is really making me learn new things about the modules that i moved from the big case into here (atlantis & metro)... and i can say, the rainmaker is absolutely wonderful. really enjoying this so far:

from my instagram feed: https://www.instagram.com/taylor12k/



the module rundown is:

TILES:
in/out
MIDI
quadratt
usb power

MODULES:
unity mixer
metropolis
quadra
polaris
uVCA
boombox
dixie II
atlantis

Taylor that case and system is sooooo fuggen cool, I'm going to build mine to be rather similar, in fact I've already built it on Modular grid, I have the Atlantis and Metrop, so I'm half way there..will get a case in a months time when I've accumulated enough cash, takes me two paychecks or one months wages including lots of overtime to afford the case but just look at it, it's art..!!
taylor12k
indeed... i'm a sucker for the visual. and the looks alone is worth the price of admission..


intellijel has changed their panel layouts slightly and their new panels are a new material now, a paler aluminum like the Mutable modules.

i ordered new faceplates for my atlantis and metro from danjel to make sure all of the modules matched the look of the new ones i ordered. he has new faceplates for almost all of the existing modules, even older stuff like the uVCA... so i made sure that every panel in this system matched.

i feel like i made a good choice in modules. i didn't want the Jellysquasher, but i knew i had to include the Boombox... removing the Jelly allowed me room for the Polaris and uVCA, which are very useful, obviously.

Love this concept. I need to expand and have been debating the 7U versus 2x4Us. Might just get one 4U 104 now and one later, especially if there is a way to distribute power between them (mentioned in the facebook post).
taylor12k
that looks great!

i briefly considered a keyboard as well, but chose against it for two reasons... 1, it wasn't intellijel and i really wanted to keep the look consistent.. and 2, takes up so much space... so i made sure i had MIDI for a keyboard, but i also have a keith macmillan CV keyboard thingy if i really need one.

i tend to make generative, ambient things, so the keyboard isn't quite as important to me.

i DO like the boombox! i had made a nifty little minimal techno thing with the Polaris self-oscillating as a kick drum and it was surprisingly beefy coming out of the speaker.

i do notice hiss coming from it, but that's OK... i also like to mic and record built in speakers for their more lo-fi sound, so i don't mind some hiss for that reason.

i guess keyboard or not really depends on how you want to use the system.. no right or wrong, fortunately! Rockin' Banana!

Taylor that looks incredible. I made my 7u into a faux easel configuration, but looking at yours has me reconsidering going with a full Intellijel 7u.

How do you like the boom box? Does it sound good?

Here's my 7u (for now):

... i do have some concern that the metal intellijel case will get scratched up pretty easily. i do plan on flying with this case, domestically, as a carry-on from time to time.. we'll see how it holds up..

Ha, I'm not much of a kb player either, but I do have fun with the arp latching and pressure. Probably not going to keep it though. Wish there was something else like pressure points, but better. And from rom Intellijel. smile

I mainly built this up as a system for my wife to use when she has the urge to be in the studio with me. Otherwise it sits next to my main 12u so that it all gets cross patched anyway.

Those are some sexy 7U cases! Really loving my 4U case, I defintely planning on getting another 4U or 7U later on and can already tell it's going to be a tough decision. Secretly hoping there will be some sort of lid add-on for the 4U, not holding my breath though.

Super curious to see what developments occur in the 1U module world. Might be nice to see non-utility modules. 1U noise/random? 1U oscillator?
taylor12k
there's definitely some 1U i'd like to see from intellijel:

LFO/random

Definitely a small noise/s&h. Preferably in 8-10 hp for the last open space I have. 6hp would be killer though, so that I could squeeze in the USB 1u as well. smile

for sample playback, there's this for now:

whoa, that radio music is half-tempting! i have four of the regular ones... too bad it's so big, though.. they could have squeezed it down it seems (but maybe not, i'm not an engineer)

put some intellijel knobs on there and it may blend in (minute the italic font....)

I got my 7U case yesterday. Just a few quick comments :

- It does look really good, and the mechanisms for the retracting feet and strap are super nice.

- The power supply seems to be great but there are far too few connectors for a 7U case. I bought a 4ms Bus Stick that I connected to one of the connectors and put beneath the top row, which gives me 32 connectors instead of 20.

- The case material can get scratched easily it seems, mine already had some scratches on the back side. I'm hoping Intellijel will make a soft case for these, this would be a great solution.

- The legs are super useful to get a nice angle when used on a desk for example. I'll probably use a small guitar stand to get a greater angle and have another case just underneath but it's nice to be able to have options like that without needing other gear.

- The un-keyed headers on the power supply are actually a better idea than I thought.

After plugging all my modules in the case and turning the power on I got the very bad surprise of smelling burnt components and even seeing a bit of smoke. I turned everything off right away and checked the modules and power supply. It turned out to be one module I bought a couple of years ago and never used so far because it needed +5V (my other case does not supply that), and that module had a keyed header but with the -12V on the opposite side (i.e. not the red stripe). I had wrongly assumed it was -12V on the red stripe and the module doesn't work now. All my other modules and the case seem fine though, which is a relief.

But if I had noticed that stupid header before I could still have used this module in the case because of the un-keyed headers on the distribution board.

Overall I'm really satisfied with the case so far, the strap + handle make it easy to carry around, it looks good, has a nice cover and some smart features.

I just wish there were more power connectors in it. 20 is not enough for a 7U case. I get that Intellijel didn't want to put 2 distribution boards to keep prices low enough and because their power supply has star grounding/etc. it wouldn't make sense for them to add a simple thing like the Bus Stick as I did, but it's something they should advertise a bit more. I was convinced the thing would have two busboards until the retailer I bought it from showed me photos...

Also if you have a Makenoise STO and plan to use it in this case, you'll have to put it either on the top row or completely on the left or right of the bottom row, because the cable header on the STO is located exactly above the cable headers on the power board and this makes the module just a bit too deep to fit.

Anyway, this is a really nice case and a big step up compared to my previous one (Pittsburgh Cell)...

Oscillateur, do you have a modulargrid representation of why you need 30 + connectors?!

I can't fathom needing anywhere near that much in 6u/84hp.

As for the guitar stand, if you go for another, they connect together into a 12u configuration. You won't need an extra stand.

The full 7U should end up more or less like this (ignore the last row, these would be extra modules) :
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/287770

That's 27 modules, with enough space for one or two + a few 1U ones...

The additional Bus Stick works well for me, I'm just glad my local retailer (Clockface Modular) had some in stock...

I'll use a guitar stand to put a case with a Yamaha Reface YC and a bunch of effect pedals just under the modular. But yeah, these joiner things are well thought, I'd be all over that if I had plans for another case smile.

Ah, you went 4hp crazy! Functionally dense, which is great. For me, over time I went with more wider modules. I like the wiggle room. wink

I agree 100% - it was baffling to see this case released this way since Intellijel pride themselves on low hp modules. I prefer Dixies to Rubicons. I prefer multiple uVCA to Linix. I prefer multiple Triatt to Mutamix. Prefer uVCF to Dr. Octature.

Its modular, and euro - the dominant trend is fitting as much function into as small a package as possible, while being as flexible as possible. So why release a 7u case that cannot accommodate this? I have a great system set up for 7u but fall way short of power connectors (but not power - since none of these modules take large draw).

All of the preview systems they have shown tend to reflect this - full of metropolis / atlantis / rainmaker - newer large hp modules as opposed to the smaller, more flexible ones that they built the line upon.

nothing too wild but seriously usable...will be cross patched with my other 3 cases most days, but can come on holiday with me when I go see the family up the coast.. cool

Well, for what it's worth everythng works fine so far with the Bus Stick. The only downside is that the modules connected to the Bus Stick do not benefit from star grounding etc. I just make sure to plug any module that I suspect could have noise/bleeding/etc. issues on their own connector (Pamela's workout or other digital modules for example).

You basically have to factor in an additional $40 if you want to have more than 20 modules in this case.
exper
Too bad I can't send you my extras. I'm not even using half of my power connectors. wink

I actually think most people wanted to move away from 'as small as possible' modules. I for one happily swapped my Mki Dixie for an MKii and a Rubicon. I also went from a Mutamix to a Dubmix and expander, etc.

In fact in my 12u, 104 hp case, there's 20 connectors per 6u and plenty leftover.

Ha, no. Those are just some extra module have that I need to figure out where to put. Most likely selling the uMIDI since I have the 1u version, and I preordered the new o'tool+ even though I really shouldn't have. wink

I am rearranging the pseudo easel layout of my 7u though. It's going to be an all Intellijel setup with the metropolis and rainmaker, more of a standalone system so that I can focus of getting to know the rainmaker, and also be a couch/patio system.

I'd like a sleeve for my case. I just use it around the house, along with an Art for the Ears 6U, to house my current module selection. The aluminum is lightweight and fantastic looking until you get a few scratches in it. I'm really not worried about dents since the aluminum is relative thick (unlike my Macbook Pro).

What might be better than neo is a adhesive backed thick, transparent plastic. Three pieces for the base and three for the lid. Something with a cool robotic schema/logo on it.

Just my two and a half cents.

Recently moved from the IJ 4u 104hp to the 7u 84hp case. I bring mine to and fro work daily. Excellent build quality and portability. Also ran into a power connector shortage. IJ recommended adding their tps30 mini, chaining the DC voltage input to it, or alternatively flying bus cables would work, but to be aware of potential ground noise with certain modules. I racked my deeper modules in the top 3u row as the power supply is directly under the bottom 3u row. Overall, I'm very pleased with the case and can't wait to add another 7u to my set up! :-)

I am super duper digging my 7U Intellijel case.



It shipped with an ungronded Meanwell PSU that made my Sputnik keyboard very sad. Danjel cross-shipped a different one that works perfectly, so über-kudos to killer customer service there. One USB tile powers a Sound Devices USBPre for headphone output and limiting, and the other powers a USB light.

This build made me wish there were a few smaller 1U tiles. I may not get a lot of use out of the µMIDI tile, and would love a teensy mixer or another Quadratt, but at 28hp, the Quadratt's kind of huge. But, I bought in to this format because of Intellijel's rep and the promise of more tiles in the future, so I suppose I'll just have to be patient. Something Eurorack people aren't so good at. screaming goo yo

Yeah I definitely want to see some more tiles. Would dig a mm filter in 1u

*tsk*, yes, poor word choice on my part: I meant the power adapter/transformer/in-line road bump o' power.

Don't sweat the adapters too much; there are Meanwells that ARE grounded, and a bajillion alternatives (sold as laptop power supplies). Just ask your retailer or the manufacturer of your case. It's just a matter of sourcing the right one to work with the modules you have. The power adapter type should not be a barrier to ownership.

I just got myself one of these beautiful 7u cases and I love it...but it does scratch way too easily.

So I put a layer of adhesive frosted plastic I had leftover from an unrelated project on both the cover and the case itself.

http://www.tapplastics.com/product/window_films/window_tint_films/fros ted_window_film/324

It took a lot of measuring and careful application to get it all done right, but now I can't even tell the case has plastic on it and best of all...NO SCRATCHES!!

If you have one of these cases and are afraid of scratches I would highly recommend doing this to yours.

I have tested the Jellysquasher and its by far the best compressor in Eurorack. It has 3 different flavors of sound and is very musical. Definitely a great purchase and is a very usefull tool for sidechaining and giving that extra oomf. It would of been nicer if it was stereo.

Great to hear you are enjoying it!

We thought about making it stereo but the module would be significantly bigger due to the size of transformers we are using.
The coloring circuits might also mess up the stereo imaging a bit so this style of compressor and features were best suited to a mono signal chain.

We would definitely consider making a sister module that is stereo and had a slightly different feature set that was better suited for stereo processing.

On a side note you can link two Jellysquashers together using the Link i/o jacks.

I think its really great that you made a wonderful durable and portable case. Also the range of modules would allow one to stay with a single maker but still have a great variety.

One gripe is you need to better explain how the 1u modules line up with the equipment on the back of the 7u case. I think it would be good to explain it on the site and give some suggested 1u tiles configurations. You also need a smaller multiple tile just saying

Thanks for the suggestion. The 7U page (https://intellijel.com/7u-cases/) describes which modules connect to the rear panel. Is there a way you think this could be made clearer or more information offered?

A smaller multiple would just be a single mult, at which point you might as well just use a hub.

I was just daydreaming about how awesome it would be to have the left side of rubicon in an 8 HP module. Ive had to boot rubi from my live case for space reasons, but its sound i miss its so nice on my ears. If it could also have the soft sync+attenuator thatd be awesome too but not a dealbreaker. Id cut out the fancy outputs for Sine/Square only to save space.

Ive also had the daydream before of a Rubicon that was a dual sine osc, prewired for TZFM fun. A TZ "synth voice" with included EG and VCA

Btw i love Rubicon smile
