Superbooth 19 Instruo Eurorack News: Lúbadh Stereo Looper & Arbhar Granular Processor

SYNTH ANATOMY uses affiliation & partner programs (big red buttons) to finance a part of the activity. If you use these, you support the website. Thanks! 

At Superbooth 19, Instruo has announced two new super interesting Eurorack modules. Lúbadh is a new performance-oriented stereo looper with two identical channels that allows you to record, playback, overdub, trim down, scan through and pitch up or down any audio signal very quickly. To add more CV power to the module, Instruo will ship Lúbadh with an additional CV expansion.

Besides this, the Scottish synth company also introduced arbhar, a new granular processor module. It features a condenser microphone in the front panel for capturing ideas, automatic sampling via a built-in audio analyzer and various modulation options. Sampled audio can be chopped into tiny grains, scattered, shaped, re-pitched, reversed and layered for an endless range of audio manipulation from seamless frozen tones to mutated acousmatic madness. 

Two amazing modules in my opinion and two highlights of the Superbooth 2019.
