The Alright Devices Chronoblob is an exceptional digital delay module for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer systems. It allows for two useful delay options that few Eurorack delay modules possess: clock devised delays and tempo-synced delay times. The module’s sync input enables precise time locking, enabling one to synchronize (or de-synchronize) delay parameters in accordance with their aesthetic requirements. Precise delay times are even easier to achieve when using the module’s division/multiplication knob, which extends from x5 to /5, and governs the delay repeat amount to create inherently musical repeats.
An external effects send allows external effects to be routed through the module’s feedback path for the creation of useful effects like pitch delay, filter delay, and reverb/delay interplay. Ultimately, users can route any effect through this input in order to alter the Chronoblob’s overall character.
Since the Chronoblob is capable of infinite decay, it can function as a looper, making it ideal for dense drone applications or airy pads. There’s also a Mode switch for selecting between two useful delay types: a BBD-style tape delay and a subtle delay setting.
Finally, the Chronoblob’s most singular feature has to be its Hold function, which is governed by a manual switch or remotely via gate input. This feature freezes the audio buffer to create wonderfully glitchy delay textures.
A Hold switch with a corresponding Gate input is able to freeze the audio buffer, which allows for stuttery and glitchy delay control.
