Malekko will soon join VCV Rack with two well-known Eurorack modules (Varigate 8+ & Voltage Voltage Block) and Grayscale modules announced.

Exciting news reaches us from VCV Rack developer Andrew Belt. On the official Facebook, he announced that Malekko will join VCV Rack with two modules in the near future.

These modules are the Malekko Varigate 8+ and Voltage Block, from Grayscale the Permutation and Variant module.

Malekko VCV Rack

Malekko Varigate 8+ & Voltage Block

Varigate 8+ is an 8-channel 16 step gate sequencer with 2 independent CV outputs for custom scale quantization and advanced sequencer function.

The Voltage Block features 8 independent 16-stage CV sequencers with which you can create quantized or unquantized sequences for each output. It can record your modulation changes, tie sequences together and more.

Grayscale Permutation & Variant

Grayscale Permutaton is based on the Turing Machine, an open-source module designed by Tom Whitwell but expanded with new features such as dedicated outputs for each bit of the shift register, CV inputs for all parameters and more.It is a set of random sequencers that use a digital shift register to generate unpredictable CV and gate patterns that can be locked into repeating loops. T

Variant is an expander module based on the original Voltages expander for the Turing Machine. Variant adds two additional bipolar CV outputs (with modulation inputs) that are derived from Permutation’s gate sequence.

According to the developer of VCV Rack (Andrew Belt), the Grayscale modules will be available free of charge and Malekko will be premium.

  1. Altough “shit register” is a funny word and I can imagine it would make a perfect name for a module I guess in this conext it’s a typo: “…dedicated outputs for each bit of the shit register, CV…”
