The Eurorack pioneers have announced a bunch of new modules plus a new case with integrated keyboard.
As pioneers of the Eurorack format, Doepfer know a thing or two about modules, boasting one of the most comprehensive product ranges around. There’s always room for improvements, however, as the Munich brand have proved with the announcement of a batch of new modules and an unusual case with built-in keyboard.
The updated A-126-2 Frequency Shifter is the highlight of the new releases, offering the weird and wonderful sound of analogue frequency shifting, an old-school effect quite different from pitch shifting. It’s priced at £321, with a black-panel Vintage Edition also available for £334.
Elsewhere, there are some slightly more simple additions to Doepfer’s slimline 4hp range, including the A-149-4 Quad VC Random, which generates four triggered random voltages based on defined parameters, the straightforward A-182-4 Rotary Switches and A-138f Dual 3-Way Crossfader, plus the A-179-2 Light Controlled CV module.
Finally, there’s also a new case with a built-in keyboard. The A-100PBK is a riff on the brand’s A-100 series cases, currently in stock in LC1 low-cost format. The new PBK model will feature a removable lid housing a three-octave MIDI keyboard.
