Yes!!! We just got in a eurorack version of the crazy Noise Swash from 4ms Pedals. This incredible noise maker and processor now has two cv inputs as well as a ten-turn pot for the Swash. The Swash knob is actually hand-blown glass. Cool. These modules are unlike any others. They're hand-painted and hand-built! The quantities are very limited.

Just when you thought that a Jomox kick couldn't have more attack the MBase 11 comes along! This beast features a cool new metal noise parameter which can add a great little ping to the attack of the kick. The new version also adds a potentiometer dedicated for adjusting the kick's sound-shaping parameters, making your tweaking faster and more convenient. The MBase 11 has all of the standard MBase features like user-savable preset slots, midi control of pitch for killer kick bass lines, built in LFO for modulation and more. Welcome to the House of JoMox! No the screen doesn't flash like this all the time. Just a video thing.

We're sending the rim shot out, 1/8th notes, separately. That audio is being converted into a gate pulse by the Analogue Systems rs50, a very handy module, which is clocking the Vostok's sequencer. Danger high frequencies!

Brian from Dewanatron demonstrates the Melody Gin. The Melody Gin is an all analog synthesizer that has two oscillators, four LFO's, an envelope generator and a host of other unique features. The Melody Gin can be externally clocked too.
These are absolutely beautiful looking and sounding instruments. All the designs are engineered from the ground up by Leon Dewan.
Dewanatron is a collaboration between cousins Leon and Brian Dewan. Dewanatron pieces have been shown in art galleries in New York and Germany. Now they're in Los Angeles!
We'll make a more hi-fi video soon!

The secret's out! We can't wait for the first Eurorack module from WMD. The Geiger Counter is a full featured bit crushing pedal with a great distortion and now it will have even more voltage control inputs! These should be available mid-summer. Nice.

Brian and Leon Dewan were in town for a show at Ghetto Gloss, a local gallery (pictures soon) and they stopped by the shop. Brian's holding a Melody Gin while Leon stands next to a special Melody Gin with keys. The show last night was awesome! These instruments are entirely analog and they sound incredible. The designs are amazing and aesthetically interesting.
Big City Music has these two pieces on display here in our Studio City California showroom. Feel free to come check them out as they are for sale.
Check out the Dewanatron site. Listen to the samples!
More Dewanatron very soon!
