First Production Run of the EURORACK Buffered Multiple

 

I've been working on a project with a friend (Really Nice Audio) for the past few weeks; introducing the microReplicator - a Eurorack Module that functions as a buffered multiple. After completing the PCB design in the early hours of the morning I made the nerve-racking decision of ordering 30 PCB and panels from PCBWay - a company that specialise in manufacturing and prototyping of electronic projects.

The Replicator is a 4HP module designed to output exact copies of audio or CV signals; making it perfect for pitch and gates, where ultimate precision is needed in a small form factor. It features 2 Inputs each with 4 Individual Outputs & Dedicated Inverted Outputs and two bi-colour LEDs that provide a visual display of the current voltage.

The Replicator has a few unique and special features that make it stand out from other buffered multiples on the market:

  • Basic (2*4 Multiple + Inverted Outputs): Input 1 > Output A, B, C, D + Inverted Output 1 & Input 2 > Output E, F, G, H + Inverted Output 2 (Toggle Switch Up)

  • Extended (1*8 + Inverted Outputs): Input 1 > Output A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H + Inverted Output 1, 2 (Toggle Switch Up)

  • Extended Inverted (1*4 Positive + 4 Inverted + Inverted Outputs): Input 1 > Output A, B, C, D (Positive Signals) + Output E, F, G, H (Inverted Signals) + Inverted Output 1, 2 (Toggle Switch Down)

The Replicator will be available as a PCB and panel (which will involve SMD soldering) and as a pre-built module over on the Really Nice Audio website.
