Super Synthesis is a brand new company based in our hometown of Austin, TX. Although they might be new to the Eurorack manufacturing world they have already made a splash by creating the The Super37. The first and only powered skiff with a built-in keyboard and a midi to cv convertor on board.
This round they have released their first 2 modules. The PH-01 Phraser and the BMIX 4 Channel Bi-Polar Mixer.
The Phraser, or PH01 for short, is a knob recorder. It records a DC voltage (via the DC pot and record button) into a loop, and outputs that movement as a 0v-5v control voltage (and displays the output via the led). The Rate knob adjusts the playback speed (or loop length, however you want to think about it.) The record button overwrites whatever is in the loop with the current position of the DC pot, allowing for complex sequences with just a little clicking and twiddling. Loop length goes from ~18 seconds to over 500Hz. The Phraser can be used as a voltage sequencer, programmable lfo, gate/trigger source, static control voltage, clock, or drone oscillator.

The BMIX is an active 4 channel mixer with bipolar inputs and complimentary positive and negative outputs. Each input channel has a gain control ranging from -1 to +1, with an open dot indicating a gain of zero. The positive output
( + ) is the sum of all 4 channels, and the negative output ( - ) is the negative of that sum. BMIX is DC coupled, so it's perfect for mixing control voltages or audio. The negative output allows it to act as an inverter and attenuator simultaneously, so a control voltage can be patched, inverted, patched away, and still available. BMIX is a handy companion for modules without enough cv inputs or attenuators, and at 6hp, wont needlessly eat up your rack space. Read more about the BMIX and purchaser H E R E.
