Cre8audio introduces Capt'n Big-O, Mr. Phil Ter, and BigEARS for Eurorack-unnamed-5-.jpg

Cre8audio kicks off special partnership with Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers with new eurorack compatible analog synthesizer modules!

July 13th, 2021 - Cre8audio, a not-so-super-famous company that makes fantastically robust and affordable modular synthesizer stuff, announced their partnership with Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers, a significantly more famous (and very serious) company. Pittsburgh Modular is known for their research and development into new analog synthesis technology.

Cre8audio describes the partnership, “they (Pittsburgh) are super serious, but still occasionally answer the phone when we call, so there’s that… Plus, we really like Richard’s (Pittsburgh Modular founder) hairdo. Anyway, we will be releasing a mega-pile of non-junk together.”

Capt’n Big-O – analog VCO with wave shaping
MSRP $199.99 / €199.99 Estimated Street $149.99 / €149.99

Developed by the ultra-serious folks at Pittsburgh Modular, Capt’n Big-O is 100% comprised of analog circuitry, perfect for people who like (or want to like) massively big analog sounds. It’s capable of generating everything from classic analog sounds to the more complex modern sounds that Pittsburgh Modular has become famous for.

Capt’n Big-O’s wide sonic capabilities are enabled by the significant amount of functionality packed into its 14hp wide, eurorack compatible panel.

Features included:
  • Sine, square, saw, and triangle waveforms
  • A fancy wavefolder that you can run any signal input through
  • Both linear + exponential FM
  • Hard sync
  • Pulsewidth modulation
  • A snazzy drive circuit - essentially a 75x overdriven VCA that can also function as a VCA

Mr. Phil Ter – VCA, envelope generator, and filter
MSRP $149.99 / €149.99 Estimated Street $99.99 / €99.99

Cre8audio claims that Mr. Phil Ter lives up to its name as a VCA and envelope generator, it also happens to be a super-rich and creamy sounding classic transistor ladder filter too.

Co-developed between the Cre8audio and Pittsburgh Modular teams, Mr. Phil Ter crams a complete synth voice, sans oscillator (you actually could make Mr. Phil Ter self-oscillate too) into only 12hp of eurorack friendly space.

Mr. Phil Ter is a great companion to NiftyBUNDLE, Capt’n Big-O, and/or used with any eurorack compatible sound sources.

Mr. Phil Ter includes:
  • Classic low-pass transistor ladder filter design, also will self-oscillate when resonance is cranked, creating a super clean trackable sine wave
  • VCA – of all the VCA’s in the world this one is one of them, and it does what VCA’s are supposed to do
  • Dual envelope generator with fast and slow envelopes (also included is a hidden 7bit for a steppy sample & hold effect easter-egg mode)

Bonus release: NiftyCASE BigEARS
MSRP $39.99 / €39.99 Estimated Street $39.99 / €39.99

NiftyCASE BigEARS are wood ends made out of birch wood, to enable stacking of 2 NiftyCASES.

Cre8audio awkwardly commented, “this is a fantastic way to double your Nifty pleasure. It’s 2x Nifty!”

Each set of NiftyCASE BigEARS includes 2 wood sides as well as all the mounting hardware needed to connect 2 NiftyCASES together.
