Francois from Shakmat Modular has been in touch with AskAudio and wanted to share news and this sexy teaser video of their upcoming synth module, Four Bricks Rook, which is a Quad Trigger Sequence Generator. Please note the module being used in the video below is a prototype. The Four Bricks Rook will hopefully be available early 2017.
If you've come across Shakmat synth modules already then you'll know they have a particular emphasis on being musical instruments. Designed for musicians by musicians. The Belgian based modular company's mission statement is to create intuitive synth module instruments that musicians will love playing, and though we only have a short video to go on, 4 Bricks Rook looks like a lot of fun!
The Four Bricks Rook is a quad output trigger sequence generator allowing the user to play, record, save, recall and mangle sequences and includes four playing modes.
Watch the rather tasty teaser video here:
While we don't have a price or exact availability to share with you, we do have details on the features!
(*) This module uses the same length / shift principle of the Bishop's Miscellany : reducing a 32 steps sequence to 8 steps creates 4 segments. The user can choose the playing 8 steps segment with the shift potentiometer / CV input.
