BAIKAL

BKLD-22-A / released April 1st, 2022 / SOLD OUT
BKLD-22-B / released April 17th, 2022

The TH/FX BAIKAL is a hybrid monophonic desktop synthesizer that offers the best of both analog and digital worlds. At the moment this is a one of a kind for sale, but if there is interest, we will consider releasing a small series of it — hit us up!

It is designed in two halves — the main circuit board is all digital, generating various sound sources, mixing and treatment options, envelopes, LFOs, and a 16-step sequencer and arpeggiator. It is equipped with an 16-line by 2-character LCD display, an encoder pot to navigate through parameters/pages shown on the display, four pots to modify the synthesis parameters, and six push buttons to cycle between groups of related pages, to switch between the synthesis pages and the sequencer/system pages, and to load and recall presets.

The all analog LP2 filter plus delay board forms the second half of the BAIKAL. It combines a raw OTA-C 2-pole filter with a classic lo-fi delay. It contains the voltage-controlled filter and amplifier, and has the ability to treat external audio.

The two digital oscillators are playable over a 11-octave range with a wide variety of waveforms, each with variable waveshaping parameters. You get basic square, sawtooth, pulse, triangle and filtered noise, a set of eight wavetables and trans-waves ranging from slap bass and bowed cello, through digital PPG-style sounds to tone-bar organs and male voice. In addition, you have a user wavetable option, so you can download your own creations via MIDI SysEx dump.

The BAIKAL is really compact (LxWxH 96x133x44mm), fits neatly on a desktop, can be powered by a 9V adaptor, features standard MIDI I/O and 6,35mm audio I/O sockets, and it can store many presets. Its innards are easy to navigate via a simple-yet-effective user interface consisting of the rotary encoder, the four rotary controls whose functions are linked to the four parameters currently displayed on the LCD display, and the yet described set of six push buttons with associated LED readouts to let you move between the various menus.

Power supply is not included.

STACTOR GR412H

SGRH-21-A / released December 10th, 2021 / SOLD OUT
SGRH-22-A / released January 15th, 2022 / SOLD OUT
SGRH-22-B / released February 13th, 2022

Acts like a stack: THE STACTOR — an analog guitar stack simulator which has the overdrive characteristics of a classic British style doom amp. The shape section can be set variabely so you can achieve the sound of diverse 4×12 cab models.

Use the PreAmp and the shape section combined or the PreAmp alone in combination with your effect chain through your interface to record with your computer. Or as a classic overdrive into your clean amp or straight through your effects loop.

The icing on the cake is the ability to switch the signal directly to your headphones which makes you independent from your interface while jamming.

100% handmade, 100% analog, best metal parts, no cheap plastics, every unit’s unique.

Laptop, interface, guitar, headphones, cables, and power supply are not included.

SPUTNIKSHOCK

SPSO-21-A / released May 21st, 2021 / SOLD OUT
SPSB-21-A / released May 21st, 2021

Sputnikshock

Two effects in one box. SPUTNIK — the closest you can get to the Russian original for all the good, warm, doomy fuzz. Modded to give it more low end, and the ability to change the clipping diodes from silicon (the orginal warm tone), lift off (loud!) and red LEDs (higher, louder, harsher distortion sound).

In combination, choose the SHOCK Booster — a classic clean boost to drive your SPUTNIK even harder on the input. Use it separately as a regular booster for all your other effects or dial it to eleven on single use for some nice overdriven boost.

You can also choose the SHOCK Octaver — add an analog octave up to your fuzzy SPUTNIK sound, the blend knob allows to dial the ocatve in as much as you like. You can even use it without the SPUTNIK to give your setup an extra octave up.

True bypass, built on our own PCBs in an etched enclosure.
