Feedback Observatory

Dark Matter is a high energy sound processor and signal generator that unleashes the crazy raw power of audio feedback into your eurorack system. It’s inspired by “no input” mixer feedback techniques that explore the complex natural behaviours of amplifier circuits pushed beyond their limits. Dark Matter brings this behavior to the modular synth, adds voltage control to everything, tons of patching options and a big ol’ bag of tricks for making feedback a truly *playable* effect.

• Excite audio signals to the breaking point with 4 flavors of voltage controlled overdrive
• Turbo charge percussive hits and drum beats
• Add sub-octave tones and timbrel richness to melodies and bass lines
• Tweak your tone with a crunchy overdriving 2 band EQ
• Add signal ducking and gating effects with the built in envelope follower
• Go the feedback way and create meandering loops through your rack using the 10 I/O jacks…..Feedback your feedback your feedback

• DRIVE - Input VCA with gain and soft clipping, Hyper drive switch for extra punch
• TONE - 2 band equalizer, Voltage controlled bass and treble boost/overdrive
• DYNAMICS - Envelopes generated by INPUT signal, Outputs 0-5V. Normalized to FBK CV and X-FADE CV inputs, Low and High decay time switch, Input pre or post DRIVE switch, Envelope monitor LED
• FEEDBACK - Voltage controlled feedback, High frequency “warning” LED, External feedback loop section, FBK OUT and FBK IN jacks, Output phase switch, FBK VCA in/out switch
• CROSSFADER - Voltage controlled crossfade between input and feedback, Input pre/post drive crossfade switch, DYNAMICS envelope normalized to mix CV input

In the Box
