In collaboration with Canada based music composer Andrew Huang based on his modern music production techniques Endorphin.es developed a creative audio processor named GHOST with multiple blocks that can be moved around in order to achieve different flavours for sound design.
GHOST is a fully digital stereo processing unit without a fixed structure in 16hp: which allows you to intuitively create astonishing and ephemeral timbres, from atmospheric rumbles to heavily distorted textures.
The extremely flexible audio chain in this module consists of a delay, reverb, multimode filter and distortion, where the order of these audio processing blocks can be easily switched with a single press of a button.
The ability of the delay to self-oscillate at audio rate frequencies and track at 1v/oct signals, including the onboard VCAs and an envelope make GHOST a complete Karplus Strong Synthesis voice in itself.
The power of the GHOST lies in its complex stereo audio effect chain with 96kHz, 32bit internal audio processing, consisting of 2 VCAs (pre and post), 3 distortion stages, a multimode filter, delay, reverb, compressor, and sidechain ducking envelope.
The order of the three main processing blocks DELAY/REVERB, VCF, and DISTORTION can be changed by pressing the ROUTING button, letting you achieve many different flavors of sound without having to repatch. The settings of the GAIN, DRIVE and COMPRESSOR in the audio chain are adjusted manually for optimal control over the dynamics.
ENDORPHIN.ES | ɛnˈdɔː(r)fɪnz | is innovative brand specializing in breaking age musical technology - manufacturer of eurorack modular synthesizers - electronic musical instruments.
It was founded in 2010 by Andreas Zhukovsky: engineer, designer, and hardware developer of all Endorphin.es products.
The company takes its beginning in Kyiv, Ukraine where Andreas was born. Having electronic music production skills and mathematical master background, since 2009 he started to sketch his own synth DIY designs.
On 23rd of November 2010 he registered ‘endorphin.es’ domain name and @endorphin_es twitter account which defined the beginning of the company’s name.
The first synth prototype became of now-famous Furthrrrr Generator. The VCO in its design initially was inspired by famous Buchla Programmable Complex Waveform Generator Model 259.
This vintage modular synthesizers were not accessible in a post-soviet environment, so the idea of Andreas was to bring newly accessible technology to himself in the rising eurorack format to make it more affordable for musicians and sound designers yet adding modern features like tuners and properly stable oscillators.
