Noise Engineering has today expanded its range of distortion Eurorack module. Viol Ruina is a new all analog filter that combines in a dirty way distortion and filtering. It offers a 24dB lowpass filter with a very harsh resonance and includes a built-in envelope follower and feedback FM. The filter’s output is normalized to a separate harsh distortion circuit. Good is here that it features separate ins & outs for its filter and drive section that gives users more flexibility in the patching workflow (they can use them separately in a patch per example).
At first look, Viol Ruina is a very exciting filter module that is very different compared to other filters on the market. I think it fits perfectly to musicians who produce experimental, noisy or industrial music with Eurorack Synthesizers. Or just to bring some nice-sounding distortion into your sound.
Viol Ruina is an all-analog distortion and lowpass filter with an internal envelope follower and self-modulating cutoff. The four-pole design is reminiscent of the classic filters we all know but with a completely new and slightly ridiculous twist. The independently addressable distortion circuit takes VR into overdriven paradise with a shocking amount of drive.
Built-in envelope following makes an easy way to create dynamic patches with the flick of a switch, and feedback FM takes VR to a whole new realm of filthiness. Run a sound through VR, you’ll get something cool out of it.
Noise Engineering Viol Ruina is available now for $133 USD.
