Peaks provides 4 different functions in a small 8-HP package. Their common point? They are all about generating an audio or CV signal in response to a trigger, and are all focused on rhythmic works.

Peaks is a dual-channel module – making it very useful for duophonic patches or for controlling/synthesizing the kick/snare rhythmic backbone of a patch.


2-channel trigger to signal converter.

Three control modes:

twin: Channel 1&2 share the same parameters but can be triggered independently.
split: Channel 1 is edited by knobs 1&2, channel 2 edited by knobs 3&4, with a simplified 2-parameter control scheme.
expert: Channel 1&2 are completely independent.
Four functions: ADSR envelope generator, LFO, tap-LFO, and 808-style bd/sd/hh generator. Four additional “hidden” functions.

ADSR enveloppe generator

Segment durations ranging from 0.2ms to 8s.
Quartic attack, exponential decay, exponential release.
Other fancy modes implemented in the code, waiting to be unlocked!


0.03 Hz to 160 Hz.
5 basic waveforms: square, triangle, sine, stepped, random.
Waveform variations and morphing for each of these: PWM, slope, folding/harmonics, step size, interpolation.
Phase at reset control.
Tap LFO can lock onto irregular rhythms.

Drum generator

Channel 1: 808 kick model with extra parameters (tune, punch).
Channel 2: 808 snare model with extra parameters (tune, decay).
Channel 2: A specific combination of settings transform the snare into a modelled 808 hi-hat.

Inputs, controls and outputs

4 parameter edition pots.
Channel 1 & 2 trigger inputs.
Channel 1 & 2 trigger push-buttons.
Channel 1 & 2 CV/audio output.

Cortex-M3 ARM processor.
Open-source hardware and firmware.
