Frequency Central Blades Of Ingenuity packs a looping AR envelope generator, a triggerable LFO and a circuit with twists in a 4HP module.

Modules that offer a lot in the smallest of spaces are ideal. King of the function/space modules is Expert Sleepers disting mk4. This packs more than 100+ functions into a 4HP module. A fascinating module, but also one that requires a lot of menu diving from the user.

There is also the most radical counterpart. Less but very hands-on and classic. Frequency Central’s new module with the intriguing name “Blades Of Ingenuity” does just that and follows the concept less is more.

Blades of Ingenuity is a new modulation module that consists of two elements. It squeeze an loopable attack/release envelope and an LFO in a 4HP module. The attack/release envelope gives you a one shot and a looping mode with a looping range from 19 Hz to 5 seconds.

Then, you have a low frequency oscillator with multiple waves: sawtooth, triangle and ramp switch. It range from 19Hz to 60 seconds and offers an external retrigger option. A wilder side can be unlocked in the module via cross-patching. With this you can create more unique and unusual waveforms. For example you can patch the A/R out to LFO reset in and LFO out to A/R gate. Both times with active loop mode on the A/R envelope.

You can see the module in action in the linked demo video.

A very useful modulation module with some interesting twists that takes up very little rack space.

Frequency Central Blades of Ingenuity is available now fully assembled for £100 + VAT + shipping. There are also different DIY options including the full kit for £50 + VAT + shipping.
