ARC features a powerful logic module, Jacob Duringer demonstrates his vision of live performance keyboard, Dreadbox discontinues DIY Hades unit

Eurorack module Artificial Neural Network made of submodules by ARC company, a huge matrix keyboard by Jacob Duringer, Dreadbox Hades gets discontinued.

Artificial Neural Network is based on a number of submodules allowing for waveshaping, processing of control voltages, and which are capable of programmable logic. The device comprises two Threshold Logic Neurons which are responsible for patch programmable logic both combinational and sequential. Two Boolean Logic Neurons are featured there as well and are based on the circuit of the Dual Logic Unit of the EAB synth.

The unit offers manually triggered inputs and a few auxiliary submodules including Dual Schmitt Trigger, Comparator, and Dual Not Gate.
The price of the unit is $239.

The Monolith – that’s how Jacob Duringer, inventor and composer, called his impressive development back in 1981. Take a look at the 15x48 matrix keyboard – the Monolithic Two-Dimensional Keyboard – which is still only a prototype (not a lot has changed in its appearance since 1981).

There are 4 generations of the instrument. The concept of that MIDI based controller is in the completely live arrangement. No sequencing, no tracking, no programming – various instrument voices are to be played with your fingers right here and right now. The key-looking buttons allow for multitimbral composing. The idea of the Monolith is built on having two dimensions or rows of keys along X-axis and Y-axis offering both sequential pitch variation and timbre variation, and letting the Y-axis make different instruments available for each row. Pitch and timbre of any instrument can be changed at the same time.

Dreadbox discontinues Hades DIY kit which seems to have been just introduced. Dreadbox has too many orders and not enough hands to keep constructing same projects. Though the preconfigured and ready-made model of Hades still ships.
