The appropriately-named T-Wrex, from Alright Devices, is a bitcrusher and decimator module for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer systems. The module is capable of audio effects and low frequency signal processing. When used for audio, the module processes audio through two independent channels that smash all incoming signals into glorious digital cacophony. When used for low frequency signals, the module functions as a sample and hold stepped modulator.
T-Wrex features attenuverters on every CV input, affording precise mixing and effect deployment. Both the bitcrusher and decimator sections contain separate inputs, enabling them to be used independently for even more options.
Alright Devices Chronoblob and T-Wrex on a simple sine wave sequence
The Alright Devices Chronoblob and T-Wrex work together on this patch to create effects for a simple sine wave sequence. The Chronoblob Delay is tempo synched with the sequence and the T-Wrex is in the feedback loop of the delay, bit crushing and reducing the sample rate of the repeats. The patch is clocked by the 4MS QCD with the Frap Tools Sapel changing the clock divisions for a type of ratcheting, the Make Noise Pressure Points and Rene sequence two Intellijel Dixie II+ VCOs and a Doepfer A-110-4 VCO. Envelopes are Generated by the Make Noise Maths and the Optomix is used for VCAs and a mixer into the Chronoblob.
The T-Wrex Bitcrusher and Decimator, from Alright Devices, is their next installment of high quality audio effects in the Eurorack modular realm. In addition to audio effects, when fed in low frequency content, the T-Wrex can also function as a type of sample and hold stepped modulator. With ample control, and attenuverters for every CV input, one can dial in the perfect amount of wet/dry mix and timbral character. The Bitcrusher part is also followed by a "Decimator," which also has its own individual input, allowing the Bitcrusher and Decimator to be used independently.
The Chronoblob is a unique delay for the eurorack format. One of the most alluring aspects of a delay are tempo-synchronized delay times, with clock divised delays for rhythmic overlap and layering. There are few delays in the Eurorack format that allow for this option, and the Chronoblob is here to solve that problem. With the Sync input, one can lock the delay time to the exact groove of ones music, or send it sporatic gates for a crazy asynchronous delay effect. A clock division/multiplication knob decides how the delay repeats use musically rhythmic relationships, from x5 to /5.
