NEW PUNK Module by FEEDBACK [UPDATE]

This module is the result of almost a year of brainstorming to make a multipurpose sound destruction module.

After checking several classic distortion/fuzz/overdrive/clipping circuits, we decided to blend several ideas in one module and give you enough options, so you can mangle your sound to your taste.

The circuit blends direct clean sound with two different type of distortions.

One circuit is a FET preamp based on a classic circuit of a mini portable cassette recorder & mixer combo from the eighties. It has variable gain and level control.

The other circuit is based on classic guitar pedal distortion/fuzz with switchable diode or MOSFET distortion. This circuit also has variable gain and level control.

The two distortion circuits are followed by a Baxandall two band equaliser (the one from our PRE-KM module) to shape the distorted sound to your pleasure.

Finally the mangled (double distorted/clipped equalised) sound is blended with the clean sound for the right balance.

This module sounds great on drums, bass synth or even acoustic sources. Enjoy your new sound shaping toy.

On the technical side we took great care for the PCB design and although this is an SMD circuit board we decided to use through hole parts where we considered it matters (some capacitors and the FETs).



Tech specs:

- Panel width 6HP
- 35mm depth behind the panel, including the power connector
- 8 control pots : Input Level, Gain 1, Level 1, Gain 2, Level 2, Hi Freq, Lo Freq, Blend
- 1 mode switch : Switch the type of overdrive DIODE or FET
- one input jack
- one output jack
- standard 10 pin euro power +12V/-12V
- power consumption +12V 45mA , -12V 25mA

The circled "A" stands for Anarchy, so I imagine the knobs are:
"freedom", "chaos", "passion" and "purge".
The switch let us choose from "negative connotation" to "positive connotation" and in the Middle is bi-polar.
Inputs and outputs are DC coupled, so works both with audio and CV.

Also, there are 2 secret mode called "truth" and "free will", rumors are that to acces those modes the unit has to reach high temperatures

:hmm:

Somehow it looks like a two channel something, but there's only one set of i/o jacks. Hm.
I'd have a guess of it being a parametric eq and distortion unit, and the switch pushes it even further, or changes the type of distortion..?

You were right about "bi-polar" function so you will receive two modules.

Is there a way to tell if the module will be sent? I see that the page says it will be sent for free in addition to orders above a certain price threshold but it appears out of stock and doesn't appear in my cart after attempting to checkout either. Just want to be sure!

I'm also hoping for a neat slewed voltage generator, possibly with two separate chaotic effectors? Kinda like orbits.

The module will be sent. I couldn't find a way for every customer to buy the module with 0Eur.

yes, weird it is ... and anarchic.

Can be a dual band compressor and eq/distortion. At least looks like something dual, but with only one input, the dual could be two frequency bands.

Like a parametric eq, so knobs are input/output volume, black knobs are frequency, then Q and gain, dunno about the something something bi-polar :hmm:

Done! I picked up the chorus which I wanted anyways. Look forward to playing around with the new modules

Ah neat, grabbed a 106 Chorus and Busboard, this should be fun

Motivation enough for me. I've been eyeing your mix module for awhile. Done deal now

Feedback has lots of great modules, full kits and pcb/panels. Nice promo offer and very generous.

It's not sold out, you don't need to add the module in the basket it's well explained on Feedback website ;)

I reckon it's a random / chaos generator with control over range, offset, quantisation, uni/bi polar output

ALso ordered ;) ... actually I had the feedback shop open for quite some time now, and always delayed, so this was final trigger.

I stick to my guess of a parametric eq. ALM has a dual band eq that says "inspired by the EQ circuits used in early ‘Portastudio’ type 4 track tape mixers". And FEEDBACK has an ongoing thing with those early mixer/eq/preamp gadgets, so something similar would definitely fit into the line. Also if the power consumption on the page is correct ... it is not much, not enough for dual band compressor, so a (dual band) eq maybe with a bit of distortion/crunch to warm up is most likely.

Also EQs often lack CV control, with anything else such as the suggested random generators, I would expect a bit more cv than a single input.

Switch could be polarity to use it in feedback (no pun intended) loops, not sure how bipolar fits in.

Anyway, page says 6 knobs but the figure seems to show 8 ... :hmm:

hehe similar here:)


btw the link in the new module description does not lead to this thread but to env-100

Ordered a few modules to take advantage of this excellent offer! I'm looking forward to whatever this is.
