Apollo View

Regular price CAD$515.00

In collaboration with DivKid, Manic introduces an exploration of dual channel mono, mono to stereo or true stereo modulation and sound shaping within a sleek 8HP module designed for both creative freedom and technical precision. Each channel offers precision linear VCA functionality with traditional unipolar amplitude control or bipolar behaviour for complex ring modulation effects. 

While we all need VCAs … you can’t have enough of them! VCAs are often the hidden secret sauce found in lots of circuits to provide level, depth or amount control and modulation. With Manic we’ve deliberately exposed the VCAs for direct and flexible amplitude controls on the clean output but the true power of Manic lies in the shapes outputs where these VCAs feed a rich palette of waveshaping under manual and voltage control.

The shape outputs provide three distinct sound sculpting options: an inverted signal for enhanced processing flexibility against the clean output, a clipped signal for harmonic richness or a wavefolded output for complex textural evolutions.

Channel 1 features TanH soft clipping and Serge-style wavefolding, while Channel 2 boasts hard clipping alongside a Buchla-style wavefolder. The contrasting topologies between the left and right channels unlock dynamic stereo widening effects, making the stereo image both expansive and mesmerising. While the circuits are different they have been tweaked to provide variance for creating stereo images from mono sources while also working with stereo inputs for a balanced, yet enhanced stereo spread.

Designed to excel with both audio and CV signals, Manic effortlessly processes incoming signals for a broad spectrum of uses. The intuitive layout ensures immediate hands on control making it ideal for live performance and studio experimentation.
