Knobula Introduces Echo Cinematic Module at Superbooth 2024

At Superbooth 2024, being held May 16-18 in Berlin, Knobula has introduced Echo Cinematic, a stereo effects module inspired by dub music.

What they have to say about it:

“Analog tape delays were routinely patched into the mixing desk through a channel strip, to be Eq’d and fed back to themselves via the FX send bus. The engineer could manipulate the Eq and FX send controls to create a constantly evolving rhythmic texture, a feedback loop teetering on the edge of self-oscillation.

Echo Cinematic does away with the need for a sophisticated mixing desk and expands on this principle with a versatile resonant filter and five independent sources of automation built into the module; two LFOs for both Eq and delay modulation, a 30 second knob recorder capable of simultaneously controlling every knob on the front panel, and two external CV inputs, instantly assignable to any control as you insert a patch cable.

The Eq section features three filter types: a high/low-pass filter, a peak/notch filter, and a classic comb filter. Each of these can be patched into either the feedback loop (Dub Mode), the delay output, or the entire signal path, including the dry signal. The delay section offers up to two seconds of delay with a tap delay facility that also applies grid snapping, allowing your delay settings to be constantly locked to your beat or to a clock signal. Reverb duties are taken care of by our lush 24-bit stereo reverb, as featured on our other cinematic modules.”

Echo Cinematic is expected to be available in June 2024, priced at £320.00 (including VAT)/€350.00 (Net)/ $399.00 (MRP).
