Jomox - ModBase09 Mk II
The ModBase09 gets a successor which convincingly continues the concept of a storeable and analogue kick drum with CV/gate in the eurorack world.
Tune Varies the pitch envelope of the VCO
Harmonics Enrichment of harmonics of the VCO - for the hardest kick drums on planet earth
Pulse Change of the pure pulse part of the attack - gate time affects this parameter also
Noise Change of the pure noise part of the attack - gate time affects this parameter also
Attack Level of the mixing of Pulse and Attack
EQ Filters the bass drum with a low pass filter - for soft and 808ish kick drums
Gate T Varies the gate time from 0.1ms to 16ms
Compr Compression of decaying envelope - for slim and clicky kicks and all the depth that is needed
MetNze Metalized noise. A complex digital multitone pattern of 499 different combinations feeds the attack noise
CV1-CV4 can route the external 0-5V CV signals to any of the above parameters including LFOs. Also negative amounts are processed.
LIN. FM This is a true analog dedicated CV FM modulation input for the bass drum VCO. It only works linear-wise and does not offer musical semitones across the CV scale.
ACC This is a CV input for the kick drum accent / velocity. This input may also trigger the kick drum dynamically if the ACC trigger mode is set and the sequencer is able to generate dynamic pulses.
LFO The ModBase 09 has 2 LFOs that work on the pitch of the bass drum. The LFO always starts syncronous to the gate trigger.
The wave forms are: saw up, saw down, sine+/-, triangle+/-, rectangle+/- and portions of it.
MIDI The midi controllers of this module are identical to the Alpha Base/XBASE999/MBase11. All parameters including LFOs can be remotely controlled by Midi CCs.
Bus Env Is the programmable level of the audio out signal from the bus on the back mixed to the Kick Drum VCA envelope. Works with experimental Jayemsonic modules.
Measures height: 3 RU, size: 20 HP, depth: 53mm
Power usage: ~120-140mA on +12V, ~80mA on -12V
