Spatial System Matrix Model 228e

Post by traffkin »

quad system interface

50 vactrols inside

even headphone amplifier is vactrol-based, pointless but still ;)

control inputs can be flexibly assigned to several destinations

three operation modes per input: matrix, radar and swirl

the run is 20 units, as usual

people who interested, please pm me

Intriguing module. The 228e production line is the vactrol black hole of this universe. ;)
It's great to see the Keen family keeps growing.

this is optimised for quad right... is the functionality adaptable to a dual stereo setup?

positive, if it's used only in matrix mode

Being that it’s vactrol based, does that have a particular affect on the sound? Thank you.

i think vactrols affect the way the modulation and other interactions feel… giving those things an organic decayed response

exactly :) the attack is also pretty smooth, overall transitions and mode switching are very silky

Vactrols help glue sounds together when switching between different channels.

Thanks for the clarification on the effect of the vactrols. I bet it sounds really nice. Does anyone know where I can find either a video or some audio examples of the 228e? Thank you.

Very interesting...another Keen module that encourages out of the box approaches...even if I don't use the quad stuff right off the bat...im thinking maybe the "rear" channels in radar mode could be experimented with as some kind of effects send...and even some feedback stuff? And that with preset switching with vactrols making smooth cuts....yeah wow
