Embark on a Sonic Odyssey with Ikarie - Your Ticket to Alien Soundscapes in Eurorack

In the realm of Eurorack modular synthesis, Ikarie stands as a beacon of sonic exploration, beckoning you to voyage through the cosmos of sound. This uniquely sculpted module is a flexible stereo or dual peak filter that seamlessly traverses the boundaries of lowpass and highpass filtering with a single knob. But that's just the beginning of its interstellar journey.

Ikarie: Where Sound Morphs and Resonates
    • Filtering Mastery: Ikarie boasts two parallel filter cores, one on the left and one on the right. These cores provide a playground for your sonic adventures, offering the power to modulate in sync for stereo enchantment or work separately to create captivating stereo effects. Chain them together, and you unveil a formidable 24 dB filter.
    • Dual Peak Marvel: When you use only the mono output of the filter, Ikarie transforms into a dual peak filter. This mode conjures formant-type sounds and a rich, throaty resonance that can be dynamically sculpted at will. The Beyond output provides the spectral difference between the two filters, effectively turning Ikarie into a twin peak filter.
    • Sonic Arsenal: Ikarie is not just about filtering; it's a versatile sound design powerhouse. It features an internal VCA, CV control over panning and resonance, and optional overdrive for the input signal. This arsenal of tools allows you to craft a vast universe of sonic textures, from liquidy ambience to percussive pings and lush, eerie atmospheres. All this power is packed into a remarkably compact form factor, providing ample space for precision and creativity.
    • Collaborative Brilliance: Ikarie is the result of a collaboration between two visionary minds: Václav Peloušek of Bastl Instruments and Peter Edwards of Casperelectronics. Edwards' meticulous attention to detail has given this filter a uniquely balanced resonance and envelope response, while Peloušek's expertise has shaped it into a user-friendly module with a distinctive control scheme in a minimal footprint.
    • Cinematic Inspiration: The module's name pays homage to the 1963 Czech sci-fi movie "Ikarie XB-1" (released as "Voyage to the End of the Universe" in the US). This film served as a wellspring of inspiration for the module, drawing from its early electronic sound design, immersive cinematography, and groundbreaking production. "Ikarie XB-1" is a testament to the wonders of space exploration, and Bastl & Casper's Ikarie proudly carries the flag of this cinematic world.
    Features That Soar Beyond Boundaries
      • Two parallel filter cores for stereo brilliance.
      • Unique lowpass/highpass switching control scheme for sonic diversity.
      • Voltage-controlled resonance circuit with perfect balance.

      • V/oct input with scaling trimmer accessible from the front panel.
      • Output stereo VCA for comprehensive sound manipulation.
