Bastl Waver - A Wave Folding Drone Mixer

Eurorack signal disruptor is inspired by experimental mixing technique      14/01/20

Bastl Instruments tells us that Waver is a fully analog, wave folding mixer and signal disruptor inspired by experimental mixing techniques and mind melting drones. Here’s the details that they have sent us…

I/O
Waver has 7 inputs for mixing and modulating multiple signals.  On the output side, it has a shape output, and a pre-shaper mix output. All inputs and the mix out are DC coupled meaning that the waver can also function as a powerful CV mixer with built-in offset, inversion, modulation and feedback capabilities.

Mix
The mixing stage consists of A, B and C inputs with dedicated faders, and 2 bi–polar VCAs with attenuverting CV control. Add, subtract, wave.
This interface gives you total control over your signals but also invites you to find the unexpected sweet spots and surprising relationships that can emerge between them.

Shape
Mixed signals are then processed in the SHAPE section, its pallette relying on a wavefolder and square shaper. By employing threshold clipping and folding operations, waver expands your sound’s harmonic complexity and allows you to tweak patches up, down, squareways and beyond. Experiment with the dynamics of incoming sounds to explore their shaped behaviors. Find reflections and dead zones between your inputs – or just refresh your unused oscillators and give them a new voice.

Break
Like all Casper x Bastl collaborations, Waver shines in the realm of feedback, distortion and general sonic mayhem. Whether you want to muzzle your sound, or make it snarl, the break control helps take you there. Proceed in any direction you want or let waver lead the way – all sounds are beautiful ;)
