Flexible Drum Module And Envelope Triggering

ADDAC System 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger takes a more nuanced approach      30/01/20

Flexible Drum Module And Envelope Triggering

ADDAC System has announced its second module for 2020: the 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger. They say that this new Eurorack module — punching way above its weight class at just 3HP — provides greater sonic flexibility and nuance when it comes to feeding other modules.

André Gonçalves, founder of ADDAC System, told us, "After developing modules within our T-Networks series, we came to realize how important it is to have the right input signal for firing drum modules or envelopes. Gates and Triggers are often looked at as similar signals but at times it really makes a difference and results will change drastically depending if a Gate or a Trigger is fed to the input of such modules."

As a result of this thinking, ADDAC System tells us that they got to work on what was conceived as a simple, yet highly functional, Gate to Trigger module: a four channel converter with bypass switch for each channel. The 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger effectively limits any input Gate to a 1ms trigger, enabling the user to achieve a different sonic outcome.

Pricing and Availability:
The ADDAC System 217 Quad Gate 2 Trigger will be shipping in mid-February at a price of €70 and also be available as a full DIY kit.
