u-he launch their first Euro­rack mod­ule and a pair of ef­fect plug­ins

Future Music - - FILTER -

Soft­ware stal­warts u-he en­ter­ing the Euro­rack world was one of the more sur­pris­ing rev­e­la­tions we heard at Superbooth.

Their de­but mod­u­lar of­fer­ing is Civ­i­liza­tion, a 4x4 grid-based router that of­fers some in­ter­est­ing op­tions for quickly and con­ve­niently re-rout­ing sig­nals. It’s an in­ter­est­ing look­ing de­vice, and cer­tainly one worth keep­ing an eye out for over the com­ing months.

Soft­ware fans fear not though, as the Ger­man de­vel­op­ers also had a pair of new plug­ins to show off. Firstly, Colour Copy is a BBD-style de­lay housed in a sim­ple, sin­gle­screen UI. It of­fers LFO mod­u­la­tion and a sidechain duck­ing mode to get things mov­ing. On first im­pres­sions, it seems like a great source of crunchy over­driven de­lays and wob­bling vin­tage-style ef­fects. This was joined on the show floor by Spring Re­verb, which – un­sur­pris­ingly – is a clas­sic spring-style ‘verb ef­fect. It’s a beefed up ver­sion of the pro­ces­sor found in u-He’s Bazille synth. There are Tone and Gain con­trols for ad­just­ing the sound, plus a res­o­nant fil­ter. There’s also an en­ve­lope sec­tion which can be used to mod­u­late the am­pli­tude, fil­ter cut­off of spring ‘shake’ amount.
