Peaks provides 4 different functions in a small 8-HP package: ADSR, LFO / Tap tempo LFO, and drum synth.
A SWISS-ARMY KNIFE FOR PERCUSSIVE PATCHES
Peaks is a must-have module in every Eurorack. This 8 HP module provides a fantastic ADSR, and highly configurable LFO, a Tap-Tempo/Clock-able LFO, and a great drum synth.
The modes 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.
I personally use this module in every patch. The expert mode allows full control over two independent envelopes, which is perfect for routing one envelope to a VCA, and the other to a filter. The Drum mode sees a lot of use in my rack as well, triggered by my Beatstep pro. Along with Braids and maybe some white noise, you have a full multi-part drum voice instantly.
These modules are assembled at CCTV in Victoria, BC, Canada - an electronics design and manufacturing co-operative. High quality solder paste and precise reflow control are employed for high-reliability and quality.
This Peaks panel is custom designed by Katie McGroarty and you will not find it anywhere else. A new panel supplier means this one is aluminum and matte black, and looks stunning in every rack.
Each module is thoroughly tested and calibrated before leaving the door.

Packaging and Extras
