Glitchmachines Quadrant 2.0

Quadrant is a self-contained modular processor with an experimental touch. Its core uses various modules that can be connected modularly with virtual patch cables. Quandrant can be a modular synth or a modular effects processor. The built-in modules make this possible.

Glitchmachines has expanded its modular processor with a lot of functionality in the new version. Quadrant 2.0’s core now has 4 additional module slots, which allow you to create more complex patches.

Then, you can explore 14 new modules that bring new effects and functions to the modular table, making a total of 50 modules to experiment with. The new modules are:

  • modulation and utilities: LFO, oscilloscope, clock divider, function generator, chaos generator, logic, trigger sequencer, transport clock, quad mixer, and compare
  • effects: resonator, waveguide, comb filter, all-pass filter, and equalizer (EQ)

Glitchmachines Quandrant 2.0 also introduces a revised user interface and patching system. According to Glitchmachines, the plugin’s performance was optimized, and the built-in DSP algorithms were improved. In addition to the new module additions, various modules also benefit from revisions.

  1. just got this update from version 1 and it’s been such a blast using 2 instances of this together. One in generative mode followed by an effects mode instance. Seems like a lot of thought and deep goodness is in this device. I have to concur that the second version does feel like better workflow and a little easier to get into.
