This is the second part of our look at the new Roland Eurorack modules, in the first, we looked at the AIRA System-1M, this time we're looking at the four new EFX modules. Digital Eurorack effects modules, but with a twist - each is also configurable via an external editor to incporporate a further 6 sub modules. You can route and configure these viat the editor and send the changes either over Audio (via the remote input) or over USB MIDI.

In many ways, these are the more interesting new arrivals, each has a specific function. We can't wait to get our hands on a set, as the possibilities seem to be vast.

 

  • Bitrazer: bit and sample rate reducer plus HP and LP resonant filter with full CV control
  • Scooper: Looper and Scatter effects, syncable with additional HP/LP filter
  • Torcido: distortion and tube warmth emulator with low boost
  • Demora: wide range stereo delay, 20microseconds to 20 seconds delay time

 

All take 450mA of current, and are supplied with a box header to 9v adapter to allow for installation into a regular Eurorack enclosure, but you will need a reasonably beefy power supply if you want to run a lot of modules.

The editor is available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android, so configuring your patches on the fly is a definite possibility. Only downside being you wont really know what configuration each module has when you switch on, as you can add up to six sub modules from a current choice of 15 (more tro come).

LFO, ADSR, NOISE, SAMPLE & HOLD, RING MOD, FILTER 6 dB, FILTER 12 dB, TONE, AMP, MIXER, STEREO MIXER, CURVE CONV, GATE DIVIDER, TRIG TO CV DELAY TIME, MIDI CLOCK TO GATE

Roland EFX modules available Summer 2015 priced at £245/$299 each.
