The modules are loosely inspired by astronomic events
and physical theories. The goal is just to see how science
can inspire us to create new music.
Every module must be feasible in the hardware world, interacting
elements must be only knobs, buttons, LEDs
and serigraphy. Right click must be avoided as much as
For a more immersive concept, every parameter displayed
uses terms related to the scientific phenomenon that inspires
the module. It might be confusing at first but that’s
why the user manual is here.
While a lot of advanced science is involved, the final purpose
is to create musical and creative instruments, effective
and friendly to use.
A black whole attracts everything that gravitates around its centre, even audio and CV signals…
BLACK HOLES is 8 vcas in two groups of 4, it’s also two mixers with 4 channels each.
neutron powered crossfader
A pulsar is a star rotating on its axis and emitting very high and precise frequencies on its spinning axis.
PULSARS is a rotating 8 to 1 and 1 to 8 selectors with crossfades in between each signal.
colliding sample and hold
Branes are objects involved into the ekpyrotic theory that describes two parallel universes colliding to create our world…
BRANES is 2 groups of seven S&H driven by the same trigger source. Triggers can be summed for polyrhythmic effects.
atomic dual sequencer
An Ionic bond describes two atoms that exchanges electrons.
IONS is a two voices sequencer. While each voice has its own sequence, they can exchange their steps as easily as an electron can jump from one atom to another.
The following composers are using GEODESICS modules as a part of their setup
Geodesics has been created on July 2018 by Pierre Collard (industrial and graphic designer based in Brussels) and Marc Boulé (developer and creator of Impromptu Modular based in Montréal).
Just like many projects within vcv rack, Geodesic is also a community effort and it would not have been possible without the help of many users, composers and developers participating one way or another to enhance the quality of the project.
