Poly Effects has made fairly a splash over the past couple of years with the Digit and Beebo — two extremely modular guitar pedals that coated all the things from amp simulation to drum synthesis. Oh, additionally, the 2 pedals had been fully interchangeable — you might run Digit’s firmware on the Beebo, and vice versa. Clearly, the logical subsequent step can be to deliver that small scale modularity to the big scale modular world of Eurorack, just like what Empress did with the ZOIA and Euroburo.
Hector is basically a Digit / Beebo, however in a 30 HP Eurorack module. It has all the identical results modules, together with the wonderful convolution reverbs, ports of Mutable Devices modules and a ton of modulation sources. Meaning Hector could possibly be used to strictly as an results unit on your modular synth, it may present CV for controlling different modules, be a sound supply or be all of these issues without delay — a mini modular inside your bigger system.
