  • Control the speed and direction of the samples with the knobs as well as the CV FM (-5V to 10V) input
  • CV envelope follower out (0-8V) based on audio playback level
  • Trigger outs (10V) from each sampler button.
  • One shot mode, Gate (mpc style) mode, + Send external audio through the built in 1 second stereo delay.
  • Record into one of 10 banks. Each can hold up to 17 seconds of high quality audio.

At its core the Delaydelus 2 is performative sampler that can manipulate the pitch of 4 stereo samples at once.
Coupled with extensive CV in and out, a syncable delay, and audio input you have a machine that can make anything from boom bap beats to outer dimensional noise loops, with or without additional gear.

All orders include a pin designed by Trek Matthews 

Is it a module? Can you mount it in a Eurorack case?
The Delaydelus 2 is a stand alone unit that can send and receive standard CV and triggers from a eurorack modular or anything else but. It's made to live outside a rack so you can perform with it more easily, or use it without modular gear entirely. It's also a bit taller than a eurorack module. 

It's not necessarily semi-modular but self patching is encouraged.         The device takes -5 to 9V CV inputs, triggers over 3V, sends 10V triggers, and sends 0-8V CV out Audio in and outs are line level AC coupled. 

Is it an effect?
Yes you can use it as a stereo delay effect with one of the 2 through modes. Delay times of the left and right channels are independently adjustable.

What do all those jacks and knobs do?!?
