Tape Echo For Eurorack Systems

New AI interface module lets you use a 3-head cassette recorder as an analog tape echo      03/12/19

AI Synthesis has released the AI011 Analog VCO and AI016 Tape Interface in both a built and guaranteed version, as well as in kit and PCB/Panel format. They say that the AI011 Analog VCO is a robust and stable analog Eurorack VCO - Using the legendary curtis 3340 IC, the Oscillator provides buffered Triangle, Square, and Ramp waveforms, as well as a triangle to sine wave shaper to provide a sine wave output. The AI016 is a tape interface that allows user to use a humble three-head cassette recorder as a real analog tape echo.

A spokesperson told us, "Following the tradition of the other eurorack modules, the AI001 Multiple,AI002 Mixer, and AI003 Looping ADSR, the modules have a full video how-to build guide. Unlike some DIY companies that focus solely on providing kits, AI Synthesis has an educational mission and our kits and documentation are aimed at those who have never held a soldering iron. PCBS are professionally manufactured, and all panels are aluminum and designed by Grayscale."


Pricing and Availability:
Analog VCO: $25.00 – $150.00
Tape Interface: $15.00 – $99.00
