New Cwejman modules - BLD and MMF-6
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Eurorack Modules  
Author New Cwejman modules - BLD and MMF-6

Wowa was working hard !



The BLD has all components and functions necessary for generating bass lead and drum sounds with focus on bass drum sounds. It can be trigged by a push button or by an external signal (any shape). The pitch, cutoff frequency, transient times and amplitude are also voltage controllable by external signals. The BLD contain main sound generator (OSCILLATOR) and noise generator and modifiers such as low pass filter, amplifier and two transient (contour) generators.




The MMF-6 is a multi mode filter with six outputs, first three from the left; "clean" low pass, band pass and high pass. Low- band- and high pass to the right are processed by three separate (for every output) saturation circuits with two modes; soft and hard.Additionally, the filter core has so called "symmetry" control for the resonance and cutoff frequency. It is possible to control cutoff so positive and negative going signals has different cutoff frequencies, from a subtle "edge" to very dramatical character of the audio signal (including frequency division effect). Now it's possible to imitate the famous Moog filter (it can not replace it, of course), OTA based filters and others. All this by modulating symmetry by one of outputs (pre-patched to "clean" low pass output) or an external signal. Now it is possible to mix clean and saturated audio signals in any combination.

Wow, looks gooood. I hope they're yellow too!

The MMF-6 looks like just the upgrades the MMF-5 could have used, but still a different animal. Love the multiple outputs! applause

Has anyone else found their Cwejman oscs and filters to have lower output levels than other Euro? I really tried to keep my MMF-1 and Osc-6 but both had to be boosted on output with amp modules and space freeing killed them. I like the new filter idea but worry the same. It seems like he's running at Buchla level. All his mixers, Lfo's and VCA's are tops though.

Here's another new one that I will want for sure:

That BLD is very interesting, it would save me from using 3 or 4 of my other favorite modules.

Wonder what the price will be? Probably about $600.00 or so.

Edit --> To say that Random Generator looks sweet as well. Man, it is really getting hard to keep up with all this new stuff.

maan.
If I only had money in the moment... MY ASS IS BLEEDING
to me, the BLD looks very useful:
When patching around I often come to this point I miss one "further" whole system-
just because cables and modules get few and too often the "bass-lead" I´m producing
would need a better focus.
to start off with one BLD in parallel would keep my work and abilities much more sorted.
(wondering how wicked it would sound with a qmmg in connection!)

eek!

not sure how i feel about the whole yellow scheme in a euro chassis, but that BLD looks like it would be insanely useful along side a mfb SEQ02

I'd hit it.

I wonder what gonna be the price of this super deluxe drum module. 600 Euros 1000 Dollars ?
Kent
He's been a busy boy for sure! I'm not sure that another voice module from Cwejman will be a big seller though. My ideal Cwejman voice module is the S1! lol

I hope that he is just color-coding 'prototypes' or 'in development' units yellow. I like the Cwejman green.
coomby
man i really hope he releases them in that cream colour. they look so fucking sweet..

I hope you guys noticed the sound clips for BLD.
http://www.cwejman.net/bld.htm
some pretty awesome stuff.
i just wish he explained the patches a bit more. some sound like rudimentary drums but it also sounds like you can get some real sequences going.
http://www.cwejman.net/bd-6.mp3 (see middle section of clip)

what i really want to know is if a trigger will suffice or if you need a CV sequencer to create those sounds...
(and i'm probably gonna get the answer i don't want..)


retrospective thought:
Ahhh FUUUCK!!! nanners nanners i'm really excited. i mean REALLY. REALLY. AGH Play Him Off, Keyboard Cat.

but I just know he's gonna chop our dicks off with that price tag.

My VCO-2RM and VO-6 are -5V...+5V as expected. Also MMF-1 gives unity gain in LPF mode, no resonance and filter open. Self-resonance varies from 5V peak to peak to 15V peak to peak depending on filter mode and Spacing setting. In "normal"l use it is not as hot as Frequensteiner, but that is not a problem for me.

Me too.
I hope he fixes the typos before the panels get manufactured too.
...tHreshold...symMetry...
Lookin' good though.
anselmi
man...I´m done... not this shit again

I was claiming that at last I finished my modular plan...just decide to keep the last modules no matter what other things could be good or better

this is not fair...


the BLD covers a lot of what I want, including what the VM-1 lacks: envelope outputs! now you can use them with the rest of your system

onoo,
that rg6 is awesome!
wogglebug/noisering/rg6.
o god, please, make me choose..

i would love to have only an RG6 and a BLD in a beautycase and make the craziest drumtracks with it. Drums!
Bop!

Three new modules will be released very soon; a multi mode filter MMF-6. a random generator RG-6 and a bass/ drum module BLD. The new front panel colour is pearl-white...not yellow!


I really liked the old color (was something different in Euroland).

If it is going to be like Modcan B, I would like all my modules to be pearl-white.
coomby
if Mr Cwejman reads this thread, could he tell us a bit more about some of the sound samples provided with the BLD ?

i'd really like to know what kind of patch is used to sequence the module.
thelizard
Also, if he's reading this, it says "Treshold" on the RG instead of "Threshold".

Other than that, absolutely drool-worthy

I have no idea why these modules weird me out so much...

a "random generator" and a "bass drum/line generator"

Im not complaining or anything!! There just..... weird........ its hard to explain!!

Maybe since they seem less middle of the road technical precise synthesis philosophy than the green grey modules. Precision randomness... hmmm.....
Almost a little more "prepatched" than other Cwejmans? I'm curious how the pair would sound as a random bass drum generator. Drummer with a twitchy foot?

first I thought, maybe this creamwhite shall be an alias for "brushed gold"
...as often used for design of the fifties:


that would be THE BURNER, wouldn´t it ?!

It would be great yes...

Promising designs nonetheless, however, the pricetag remains above my spending possibilities... or?

he even mentioned a while ago admiring the work of bruce duncan (modcan).

oh shit. half of my jams are based around a base drum. alas cjweman is beyond my means.

I am thinking it will be priced like the VM-1 which is $700.00. The best base drums I am making involve an envelope( in my case a Cwejman ADSR) and a Borg going into a Boogie. That is $500.00 in the filters and however much you choose to spend on eg. Seven hundred is still pricey but not outrageous and I would love to free up those filters.

Just my opinion, but I really like the Cwejman quality and am willing to pay for it.
Kent
Cwejman now has sound files for each new module on his site. Go to the individual pages. They are at the bottom.
suboptimal
Going to follow the BLD with interest. If it would replace my XS I'd think about swapping them, since I'm using the XS as a bass specialist and it would be nice to shrink the footprint some. Different beasts, I'm sure, but I'm intrigued, anyway.
dkcg
Would be nice if the delay came out when the BLD does. Instant Dub in two modules. we're not worthy
REwire
That Filter Demo is awesome!

I want that and the Random too. All those shapes and CV slew is awesome. The three separate range outputs are a little strange as opposed to a control to level the range like the Woggle has.

Hope Cwejman doesn't sit on these like he's done with the Delay, Flanger, Crossover & Joystick.

freaking amazing modules!!! i pray they will also be available in cwejman GREEN tho, I can't get enough of that color smile

Either way, im super excited!

If anyone wants to sell cwejman VCAs or mixers to fund these, let me know 8_)
timmah
Cwejman just keep rolling out the lusty modules.
one day, I'll be rich enough to buy some. one day.
REwire
Probably worth a new topic, but with all the yapping about the VCS vs Maths and Envelopes, look what else Cwejman is working on:

http://www.cwejman.net/tg-vc.htm



Voltage Control Output!!!!
Soundwave
i hope he will also finish some of the older modules, allready waiting near 2 months now...
monads
I hope these new modules will be available in Cwejman GREEN as well.

I also wish the other early announced modules were in production. It makes it easier on the pocket book to absorb the hits.
ix
me to , i wont buy them unless they are available in green - i know its personal taste but really wont doing just cream modules of these ruin the style of the entire previous range and force owners of older systems into having a very odd look ? or choose not to buy them ...i love his stuff in green.

i like the cwejman modules i just cant afford them. well i can its just hard to part with that much just for one module.
sonicwarrior
Ok, I guess I'm colorblind. Don't see any green in there and didn't see any green when I looked at Cwejman modules in real life. It's a wonder I can recognize the green lights on a traffic light. hihi
stikygum
BLD = need. No way I'm selling my XS for this, but then again I like my flavors with the Jomox Mbase and this. Add this to those 2 and I'll have different flavors for different days of the week.

well, to be honest, not really... they're a very grey green, for sure... still green, tho wink
Soundwave
well i can't see the green either in my modules nuts
maybe in the right light

but i would say the new modules will be as yellow as the old modules where green and make noise modules are white. wink

I'm not generally one for Cwejman modules (the price, for one, but also...they seem to me to be more set up like compressors, limiters, and other mastering gear rather than synth modules...), but the BLD is piquing my interest. Unfortunately, the way I see it, the BLD will best be used in conjunction with a sampler and not for any actual live use (unless you have something like a TKB or Serge Programmer clone that can change a bunch of parameters at once). It seems like a lot of module and kind of a waste to just have it act like a bass drum all the time. It'd be a dream, though, to mess around with it for a good half hour, then dump everything into an MPC and go to work.

NEW CWEJMAN modules have been put up with prices on the Schneiders laden website http://www.schneidersladen.de/english.html

AAAAAHHHH *bitch screams* SMACK! Bananallama!

Good to see the prices. However, they are noted as "Com(m)ing Soon"... shit.

No surprises on the pricing
MrDys
No surprises, that's true. But for the cost of 2 BLDs, I could get a MachineDrum. That's something I wasn't really considering before, but now, I guess I am.
