Shape, Color, Pump, And Squash

Jellysquasher is an analog mono compressor and tone shaper made to dynamically fit within the eurorack world.

Features

  • Three carefully designed analog circuits to impose specific character on the output signal:
    • TUBE adds non-linear distortion providing second order harmonics
    • TAPE adds symmetrical distortion providing both even and odd harmonics
    • XFRM modifies the transformer feedback circuit, giving a boost to low bass content
  • All three COLOR circuits can be engaged in any combination to react differently based on the input DRIVE level and MAKEUP GAIN.
  • 100% analog signal path and SIDECHAIN feedforward compressor  with unique log-based RMS detector.
  • Output routed through a specially selected Edcor transformer with highly desirable saturation qualities.
  • SIDECHAIN is routed through a voltage controllable SVF filter with LP, BP and HP modes. A trimmer on the PCB allows you to adjust Q. This filter can be used independently of the rest of the module.
  • External SIDECHAIN input allows triggering of the compressor with external sources.
  • LINK IN/OUT allows two Jellysquashers to be chained together for stereo operation.
  • Full CV control of SIDECHAIN, VCF Cutoff, THRESHOLD, RATIO, ATTACK time, RELEASE time, and MAKEUP GAIN.
  • Wet/Dry MIX control allows for “New York” style compression where there is a blend of the dry and compressed output signal.
  • LED bar graph with selectable display modes to view the signal level in VU or the gain reduction in dB.
