Pittsburgh Modular designed the Analog Replicator to be the best analog delay available, with a sound and feature set geared toward modular synthesis. Packing a pair of 4,096-stage BBD (Bucket Brigade Device) chips, the Analog Replicator is at once brighter, darker, cleaner, dirtier - and hence considerably more versatile than any other analog delay line you've likely used. Take it from us modular mavens here at AudioBuy.com.au Australia, this is no mere stompbox dressed up as a synth module. It's a modern BBD core, fed by a proprietary clock source and signal processing circuitry. The result is a flexible, wonderfully musical-sounding Eurorack delay module. If you're into Eurorack modular, Pittsburgh Modular's Analog Replicator is essential kit.Pittsburgh Modular Analog Replicator at a Glance
- Two BBD Chips, infinite possibilities
- Multi-Mode delay effects
The Analog Replicator is driven by a duo of 4,096-stage BBD chips. BBD stands for Bucket Brigade Device - as in, a queue of vintage firefighters passing buckets of water. Each stage of a BBD chip employs a single capacitor. Pairing two chips together yields a chain of 8,192 capacitors. Like those afore mentioned water buckets, an audio signal is passed from one capacitor to the next within the BBD chips - once per clock step. Slow down the clock and you get a longer delay; speed it up and you get a shorter one.Multi-Mode delay effects
Pittsburgh Modular designed the Analog Replicator with a host of controls that will give you an impressive range of delay effects. The 4,096/8,192 switch flips between, well, 4,096 and 8,192 BBD stages. 4,096 employs a single BBD chip and 8,192 uses two. Using both chips doubles your available delay time, ideal for longer echoes and delays. Using a single BBD is perfect for reverb and chorus effects. The Short/Long switch dramatically alters the delay range. In Short mode, you get bright, clean analog repeats. Long mode is grimy and dark-sounding. Murkiness and clock whine begin to leak in and eventually take over as the Analog Replicator arrives at its longest available delay time (2.6 seconds).Pittsburgh Modular Analog Replicator Features
- 16hp Eurorack delay module (requires Eurorack case/power supply)
- A host of controls for an impressive range of delay effects:
