If you’re looking for a compact but capable distortion module for your Eurorack setup, this could be a great one for you! The Single Utility Distortion Module is based on the popular Rat distortion pedal, but features a couple of intriguing twists that make it even more exciting for modular users.
The distortion this module provides brings a gorgeous gritty tone to your modular compositions. It has controls for distortion (ranging from warm to fuzzy), as well as a wet/dry mix which balances between the distorted and the original signal. It also has a level control input which allows you to attenuate the output sound, to help balance the mix with your track.
Alongside working as an excellent and distinctive distortion effect, this utility module can also act as a Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA), a two-channel mixer, and even an inverter, for flipping your signals. This extraordinarily flexible bit of kit will certainly provide a wealth of extra sonic possibilities for your Eurorack repertoire!
It has a beautiful black and gold faceplate which is only three centimetres wide, embellished with a wonderful geometric design and high-quality black potentiometer knobs.
