Make Noise 0-Ctrl

This small CV controller and performance sequencer is the perfect link between analog synthesizers with a CV interface and your brilliant ideas. There is a touch field for each of the 8 steps and each step can be set with 3 controls: Pitch, Strength (dynamic gate / envelope) and Time. In addition, each step has its own gate output. There is also CV control for speed, running direction, reset and stop. The sequences are synchronised via the clock input and output. This works great with all Eurorack modules, but also with many desktop synths. See just how creative you can get in the video below:

Zultan 20th Anniversary Cymbal Set

Zultan – The Cymbal Brand celebrates their 20th anniversary this year by launching a special limited-edition cymbal set! The set contains a 15” hi-hat, 17” and 19” crashes and a 22” ride which are 100% handmade B20 bronze cymbals. It’s brilliant for jazz, funk and ”grungy” rock styles thanks to the earthy tone, medium dry decay and articulate response of the cymbals. The captivating range of rich, detailed sound and peculiar dark look of the set has been obtained by skipping the lathing process and by using a larger and more pointy hammer. Get them before it’s too late 😉

Price €669
