Joranalogue Pivot 2 Analog Signal Router Available Now

Joranalogue Audio Design has announced the availability of the Pivot 2 Analog Signal Router, originally introduced at Superbooth 2022.

Joranalogue Pivot 2 is a compact signal router, great for passing audio or CV through two different send and return loops, with both series and parallel capabilities. Simply pass your signal through the input to either or both of the sends, and return the affected signal to its respective receiving input.

The Pivot knob, enables you ‘pivot’ from the left send to the right send and anywhere in between. Fully counterclockwise, the first FX loop sends the signal through the following right FX loop for a series connection to the output, but the exact opposite can be said when the pivot knob is fully clockwise.

In the middle, you will produce a parallel process for warping and mangling your audio in two varied positions.

The complementary CV input and attenuverter offer hands-off control for blending and shaping of your signals, making Pivot 2 a useful choice for both complex and evolving processing as well as simple matters like basic routing and crossfading.


  • Analog signal router module
  • Mono input and output
  • Two pairs of send and return jacks
  • Complex Pivot control to blend between the two FX loops and their routing
  • Pivot CV input and attenuverter


The Joranalogue Pivot 2 is available now, from Perfect Circuit and other authorized dealers, with price of around $160.

Buchla announces 3 New Music Easel Synthesizers, ‘The Electric Music Box’

Buchla USA has officially introduced three new versions of the classic Music Easel, aka ‘The Electric Music Box’.

Since they previewed it at Superbooth 2023, they’ve added a new ‘Retro’ option.

What they say about the new synths:

“This past month at Superbooth, we showed off our completed Music Easel and the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Easel.

The love for the Anniversary Easel was strong, but the retro-at-all-costs build with guest artist preset cards, publication, signed artwork, and special edition LP was not within everyone’s range.

When we returned, we set out to determine if we could incorporate the retro appeal of the Anniversary Easel into a more affordable package that could be built in higher numbers. The answer: ‘yes.’”

  • Preorders for the Music Easel (modern & retro) begin June 16, priced at $4,999.
  • Preorders for the 50th Anniversary Collector’s Easel run from July 1 – 31, priced at $9,999.

Soundtoys introduces New SuperPlate Reverb Plug-in

Soundtoys has released SuperPlate, a new plugin that emulates the unique tonal character of five classic electromechanical plate reverbs, plus extra classic saturation and a few modern twists.

The company says that SuperPlate’s algorithms capture “a level of unmatched realism and versatility and create luscious, immersive effects”.

SuperPlate is built around meticulous models of the EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, EcoPlate III, and Stocktronics RX4000 plate reverb units. It also features three different flavors of analog coloration – Tube, Solid-State, and Clean. The Tube and Solid-State modes are modeled on the EMT V54 preamp for tube saturation and the EMT 162 preamp which has a built-in compressor to help tame transients.

SuperPlate also includes a range of modern digital features, including:

  • Infinite decay time,
  • Built-in pre-delay,
  • Expanded modulation controls,
  • Full-featured EQ for detailed tonal shaping, and
  • A unique decay ducking option that adjusts decay time to avoid overlap or masking.

“We love the sound of real plate reverb and wanted to bring the distinctive sound of our vintage plate collection into the world of modern audio,” says CEO and lead designer Ken Bogdanowicz. “After analyzing and living with these devices for several years our team captured the true essence and variety of tones from the five different plate reverbs that we modeled for SuperPlate. We always try to take our effects beyond ‘simple emulations’ and with SuperPlate I feel like we found the perfect balance – switchable modeled preamp styles, built-in parametric EQ, and extended and dynamic decay time – to make SuperPlate a versatile go-to reverb effect. It sounds great and it’s fun and easy to use.”
