Plankton Electronics SPICE - Modular Saturation Unit [Kickstarter]

Spice is a saturator capable of a huge variety of sounds and colours. From subtle tube warmth to extreme fuzz distortion.

SPECIFICATIONS
  • Rackable (38HP eurorack) modular desktop unit.
  • 8 CV inputs with led level indicators.
  • 6 main functions: Prefilter / Digital / Analog / Mixer / Envelope Follower / Feedback
  • Prefilter: High Pass and Low Pass filters to shape the sound before being processed. Both controlable via fader + CV input.
  • Digital: 12 bit Bit Crusher + Sample Rate reducer. Both controlable via potentiometer and CV inputs. It also offer an analog input control with led clip indicator and a low pass filter to smooth the output signal. All the code will be Open Source
  • Analog: 7 analog distortion circuits selectable with a rotary encoder + a sweet resonant state variable filter. Drive and Cutoff parameters are controlable via potentiometer and CV inputs. 2 of the circuits use the new Korg NU-TUBE.
  • Mixer: Dry and Wet controls to mixed the processed signal with the clean one of the input. Both controlable via fader + CV input.
  • Envelope Follower: A dedicated envelope follower with gain control and normal and inverted outputs to convert an incoming signal to an envelope. With its output you can control any of the CV parameters and shape the processed sound in many creative ways.
  • Feedback: a triple feedback section that sends the Wet input to the Prefilter, Digital and Analog sections. It's capable from a subtle resonance to a collapsed hardcore self generating tone.
  • Semi-modular architecture with prepatcehd sections that can be reestructured using patch cables. Each section (minus the feedback) can be used as an indpendent function from the rest.
