The DSM 02 Eurorack module provides an eclectic assortment of five digital effects:

  • Girth and Air provide sophisticated low- and high-frequency harmonic enhancement, respectively, for defining and refining a sound.
  • Decimate performs sample rate reduction for adding lo-fi grunge.
  • Hack is a bit-crusher capable of trashing an otherwise clean signal nearly beyond recognition.
  • Drive adds overdrive and saturation, with warmth at one end of the knob and intense harmonic overload at the other.

The Character section of the Pro 2 and Prophet 12 is a fundamental part of what gives those instruments their unique sound. This is designed to make it easy and affordable for modular users to inject some of that character into their rigs. The DSM02 module is a 14HP wide, standard Eurorack format device with interconnections made using 3.5 mm phone jacks. A carefully designed set of inputs allow individual voltage control of effect levels.

The module provides two independent audio inputs and two independent audio outputs with shared control, allowing for either mono or stereo operation. The digital signal path provides full 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution for superior audio fidelity.
