Analog Four MkII is shipping, Eventide presents its first Eurorack module, Antelope reveals the new high-end audio interаace

Eventide joins the mainstream, Elektron reminds of itself with definitely good news, Russian brand is wiiling to feature its own Mellotron, Electro-Harmonix Slammi Plus pedal fights back Digitech Whammy, Antelope Audio and PreSonus have something to share as well.


Keen Association presents Keen-o-Tron. The brand will demonstrate the new product at SoundMIT which is going to take place in Turin November 3-5.

The Russian manufacturer will feature the new fun Keen-o-Tron in Italy. The polyphonic instrument features a touch panel keyboard and uses the Chamberlin tape concept demonstrating a new kind of a device – Keen-o-Tron uses the sample playback via timbre control. The brand offers optronic master gate while introducing a most accurate VCA. The precision is at the highest level. You’ll get a 4-voice polyphony, pressure sensitive keys and wide sequencing possibilities. To learn more on pricing and availability you’ll have to wait a bit.

Eventide EuroDDL

Eventide has finaly entered the Eurorack market with their EuroDDL. The unit is a 16HP device featuring a digital delay circuit. The delay offering an external control is built to sound natural. With EuroDDL you get a mild saturation clipping, low pass filter with feedback, looping capability – and you’ll have it all analogue. Get a delay effect for looping, for a desired echo, or for flanging tricks. Fix it backwards to get a needed reverse effect. The DDL is essentially variable allowing you to change delay time smoothly within a wide range doing it with a remote CV or via tap tempo.

The new Eventide’s module will be demonstrated at the AES New York convention ’17 which will be held on October 18-20. You’ve got all of it to control your new unit – such options as kill, reverse, feedback, mix and low pass filter. The developers wanted it to behave as an analogue instrument keeping its naturalness at a maximum level. The delay module is based on the architecture of the 500 series delay unit.

Limited number is available. Look for details soon - general supply is scheduled for January 2018.
