Notes: The Rakit Metal Synth has a Polivok's inspired filter at its core. It uses this, along with a punchy AD envelope to produce a variety of percussive sounds from shaped noise.
It was designed to be a companion to the Rakit Drum Synth and as such creates a range of mad/interesting sounds and some very useful metallic sounds.
How it Works:
The synth is triggered by a piezo disc which is sensitive to how hard you tap the top panel giving subtle differences in the two stage envelope.
The noise is generated digitally by a pre-programmed microcontroller. The filter at the heart of the unit can be controlled and modified by the Sweep, lowpass/bandpass, Resonance, Cutoff and Cutoff CV.
2x Trigger Options:
Trigger by activating the piezo under the touchpad (Metal Logo) or by plugging in an external trigger.
Powering The Unit:
The Metal Synth comes with a 9V pp3 battery to barrel jack connector as standard. We recommend using an alkaline battery, this is not included.
Should you wish to use your own power supply, please ensure it meets the following specifications:
+8V to +12V, Centre positive 2.1mm (centre) x 5.5mm (outside)
Notes: The Rakit GO! will take care of your portable eurorack fix. Now you'll be able to take your modules everywhere. What's more, the GO! has a slew of protection features built in, protecting your GO! module, supply/powerbank and greatly reducing the chance of damage to modules through user error. The power supply has a robust and reversible USB C connector for the best possible USB connection. The GO! has been engineered from the ground up, making full use of 5V powerbanks/supplies that are widely available on the market. At only 2hp wide and 27mm deep, GO! is ready to fit in any case.
To start using your GO! power supply you will need a passive bus board and your choice of 5V powerbank or USB AC adapter.
- Supply/Powerbank protection - reverse voltage, overcurrent (fast eFuse)
- GO! Input protection - reverse voltage, overvoltage, undervoltage, overcurrent (fast eFuse)
- Module protection - all rails current limited and overvoltage protected
- +12V & -12V LEDs indicate bus health (very dim below +-11.75V)
- GO! Module
- 18W High Quality USB C Cable
- 16 way ribbon cable
- 2 x M3 Screws
Notes: The Rakit Sticky passive bus board is able to fit into some tight spaces, measuring only 160mm x 30mm x 12mm with 10 connectors. It's the perfect companion for the GO! USB C supply, or any Eurorack project.
- 10 x 16-way shrouded headers
- Non-conductive rear side for short circuit free installation
- Actual red stripe!
- Really sticky adhesive pads
What you get:
One Sticky and three adhesive pads.
Prepare the surface by ensuring its clean and dry. Attempt a dry fit before attaching the adhesive pads and make sure it's not in the way of your modules. Peel and attach the pads to your Sticky and when completely happy, press into position for a few seconds.
