Clarke releases Imaginator VCX-378
Vince Clarke has announced the availability of the IMAGINATOR VCX-378, a Eurorack module designed and built with Analogue Solutions.
Vince Clarke has announced the availability of the IMAGINATOR VCX-378, the second product in a series of modules for the Eurorack small-format modular system under the namesake Clarke company name, designed and built to exacting standards in close collaboration with British ‘boutique’ designer/manufacturer Analogue Solutions.
The IMAGINATOR VCX-378 produces one-bar musical phrases based on either user-control of the musical algorithm or a quasi-random solution. According to Clarke, anyone seeking to trigger their own musical imagination (and MIDI synthesisers) can add an IMAGINATOR VCX-378 to their Eurorack small-format modular system setup for an almost unlimited combinations and permutations that both able to inspire and amaze as while helping in the quest for that defining elusive musical hook.
Housed in a 36 HP-width Eurorack module, the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 has a front facia-located one-octave ‘keyboard’ — with each ‘note’ having a push button and associated LED — alongside two Quantize sections, Octavize and Transpose sections, a Velocity treatment, plus internal (Sequencer) and external (Midi/Clock) clocking, as well as a full MIDI interface.
In most cases, users will want to sync to their sequencing software by sending the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 a MIDI note clock. This can be downloaded from the Clarke company website (http://www.vinceclarkemusic.com/circuits/). The IMAGINATOR VCX-378 then references these notes and uses this information to clock the musical patterns it produces. With everything correctly connected, users can use soft synths or send those musically imaginative patterns out to an external synthesiser.The IMAGINATOR VCX-378 is priced at £349.00 (plus tax and delivery) and available to order online from Analogue Solutions.
