ADDAC 300 power starvation works well with EKO

Post by Mercutio »

So Eko is (un)powered by the Power starvation !

Drums = Maschine (Based on Voyal kit)

SEQ = Korg SQ-1
Lead = Basimilus Iteritas (best synth module ?)
FX = EKO (glitched by Addac power starvation)
FX 2 = Ladik M-330 (Room 2)

I just change note with left hands on my SQ -1 and tweak the knobs +12v and -12v on addac power starvation with my other hand ! ....

Nice! Really like it :nana: Seems that the soundcloud link didn't get embedded though.

Sounds very interesting, I wonder what happens when you starve a digital module like Clouds?

Very cool. I love voltage starvation in regards to circuit bending and such... had no idea there was a module dedicated to achieving it in Euro.

ive been curious about this module! Does it have some power jumpers on the back to hook up to other modules or does it starve the rail or something?

Awesome. I really want one of these, but I'm not sure what modules would sound best starved.

There are two power connector on the back and can drive ....two (max 90 or 150 ma, depends of your version )! I never tried digital module !

Switches and knobs are not easily twekable because the module is really tiny and doesn't offer cv input.

I had result with hh909, ufold, d-lfo, Maths, Alex and June, and eko.

I believe most digital modules like Braids will simply shut down when the voltage gets too low. But wouldn't hurt to try 8-)

I'd really like to hook one of these up to a couple Plague Bearers, that'd be some good fun.

I´m super confused... and super intrigued. Sounds really different!

Can somebody explain the basic principle of power starvation (i.e. what happens when you do it), like I´m 5 years old? ^^

Or link to a relevant (=audio related) Wiki thing or something - thanks! :)

Wow! Great stuff - thanks for sharing. I dig the groove from the start, and then all the work with the eko just adds some dirty weirdness! What exactly does the basimilus iteritas do? Is it a drum module, or ??

xenosapien to my knowledge is simply lets less power through. So with +12 and -12 for the eurorack power it can scale that down to say provide only +4V and say -8V (as they're on separate controls) making the circuit react differently as it's underpowered. It's like having a dying 9V battery in a guitar pedal. So get some tremendous sounds from underpowered circuits and this let's you do that (safely I presume, don't know much about it) to modules.

Nice audio demo, like the dying EKO sound and even more so starving it's power! :)

Well the descpription on the Addac site states: "Use at your own risk", so I guess this means that there is a possibility that somthing "bad" might happen to your powerstarved module?
Dunno, like the sound of it though, and the concept 8-)

I don't know the science of it, but have done a lot of power starving with guitar pedals in the past. The sound it tends to produce is a sort of buzzy, tearing, breaking apart, stuttering type of effect; it's pretty distinctive. Some distortions/modules even have built in starve controls like the Dwarfcraft Great Destoryer. There's some pretty good examples of starve sounds in the demo video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJhYxLwhtcE

aaah, thanks - the "dying battery" thing makes sense to me, as I know how that sounds.
