4ms Modular Processing Pod Due 11/6/2021

This Pod was designed for processing and effecting other sounds, and contains the following eurorack synth modules from 4ms Company:

  • Dual Looping Delay
  • Tapographic Delay
  • Shuffling Clock Multiplier
  • Quad Pingable LFO
  • Listen IO
  • Listen Up

The Dual Looping Delay (DLD), designed by 4MS and Gary Hall, is an advanced audio processor for creative synthesis. Not a tape or analog emulation but a modern crystal-clear digital delay, the DLD combines features of delay, looping, and sample-tight synchronization for powerful and dynamic sound capture and modification. The DLD is designed to integrate seamlessly with modular timebase and sequencing devices such as the 4ms Quad Clock Distributor (QCD), etc.

 

The Tapographic Delay, designed by Matthias Puech and 4MS Company, is a complex multi-tap delay in the Eurorack format with a unique interface designed for live performance. It excels at transforming the simplest audio (a drone, a percussive sound) into complex rhythmic structures, meshes of organic textures, lush harmonic mille-feuilles, liquid and resonant effects.

 

The Shuffling Clock Multiplier (SCM) produces eight multiplied clock tempos from a single input clock, ranging from x1 to x8 (x32 by using the Breakout). Some of the outputs can be shuffled/swung. The amount of shuffle is controlled by a CV Slip jack. A Rotate CV jack re-assigns the multiplication number of each jack. More features of the SCM can be controlled by the SCM Breakout.

 

The Quad Pingable LFO (QPLFO) is a compact, playable four-channel tap-tempo, clock-syncable LFO with variable skew and reset.


The Listen IO is a simple module which gets signals in and out of a Eurorack system by converting to and from normal modular levels. The top section converts any external signal to modular levels by providing up to 30x gain (+30dB), allowing you to use table-top synthesizers, keyboards, phones/tablets, computers, toys, microphones, etc. in your patches. The bottom section does the opposite: modular signals are converted to normal line level signals. The bottom two jacks can be used as line outs or as headphone jacks, so you and a friend can listen in stereo at the same time. 


Listen Up is an input and output module that is connected to the Listen IO in this Pod, providing 1/4" jacks for easy interfacing with non-modular gear.


Power supply and patch cables included.
