A bit of fun that reminds me of a piece that Jeff Diamond introduced me to a long time ago called “Come Out To Show Them”. This is from a text-to-speech app that I was testing for a talking greeting card project I was involved with several years ago. It is so relentless that you just have to laugh!

Maytag Example

Maytag mode on the Sputterizer and now on the Spankulator (under development) is a versatile and fun effect. Here is an example using the Spankulator that has the parameters set as follows:

  • Longest Pulse Length: 20ms
  • Delay: 785ms
  • #Pulses: 12

Here’s a scope capture of the Gate output (yellow) and the CV output (purple).

Maytag - Pulse Len: 20ms, Delay: 785ms, #Pulses: 12

Here’s what it sounds like when you hook the CV output to the Moog Mother-32 VCO 1V/OCT input, the Gate output to the VCO LIN FM input and the Toggle output to the VCF RES input. I added a couple of other subtle modulations and sent the whole thing through the TipTop EchoZ.

Product Research Notes

As the Sputterizer and EyeBall beta-test results come in, some new ideas are brewing. As cool as the Selector display is, I can see a future for products using a more compact and capable display.

Here is the first foray into this realm.

Beta Testing is in progress

Eurorack synthesizer modules the Sputterizer and the EyeBall are now in Beta-Test!

The response has been great and from all over the world. The Sputterizer and the EyeBall are now in places like Sweden, South Africa, Quebec and Oakland California.

There’s already been some good feedback and the next iteration of the designs are well under way. Thanks to all the testers!

And even though we have enough testers for now, we’d still love to hear from you. Use the Contact page and when the next round of testing starts, we will contact you.
