The Folktek Matter brings all the power of drum wave synthesis to the realm of Eurorack modular synthesis. It can be configured to play as waves or produce triggerable drum sounds. For example, users can utilize a kick-oriented oscillator for basslines, a snare for noisescapes and resonant madness, and much more. The result is a maddeningly diverse array of possible sounds with assorted trigger points.
Far from being a one trick pony, Matter also excels at intricate drones and synth textures. It boasts the same analog synth configuration as Materia, meaning it works along the lines of deductive synthesis.
Matter implements an onboard patch system, found in many of Folktek’s other modules, that operates in tandem with custom patch cables. This allows for a plethora of self-contained functionality in a compact space. Future implementations are planned to make the patchbays even more expansive. In the case of Matter, there are two patchbays: 1-10 and 11-20, that grant access to various access points within the module’s circuitry. Users can route CV and gate signals into the inputs to achieve an array of functions.
Aside from the primary synthesis, Matter also has vactrol-based sine modulation which can be used in a number of ways;
