New Module Information

Async to Async

This module can be used as a substitute for an Async Feedback module in logic circuits. Unlike the Async Feedback it's XITE compatible and you might also notice it's a lot more responsive.

Button A

A module with a single BCM compatible button on its surface. Editing of button text and values are handled as usual with BCM buttons from the module popup.

Control Smooth A

This is a version of the existing Control Smooth S module which has an async control input and sync control output. It saves on using a separate Async to Sync module in instances where the source is async.

Control Smooth F

A version of the existing Control Smooth S module which has a samplerate compensated async frequency control input and sync frequency control output. More info on samplerate compensation below.

Frequency Splitter

Splits any synchronous frequency control input to a pair of frequency control outputs above and below the set frequency value.

Mixer Pan 3dB

A nice simple Mixer Pan as an alternative to the existing Crossfade Pan module.

Pipe128 to Pipe

Converts between a 128 control Pipe and 16 regular BC Pipes.

Pipe64

Converts between a 64 control Pipe and 8 regular BC Pipes.

PipeX

Eight XY Control Rangers with controls for curve type, curve intensity, minimum value, maximum value & invert on the popup panel. Useful in situations where control rangers are to be used on a pipe connection.

Signal Splitter

A module can split any sync input to a pair of sync outputs above and below a sync threshold value.

SR Compensation

A general purpose samplerate compensation module which can be set to adjust either frequency or time control values according to the system samplerate. More info on samplerate compensation below.

Switch X to 1 Modules

These switches can have the input count scaled for the desired switch size either by keying in a value for X on the module surface or adjusting the slider on the popup.

Wavetable Draw B

A new version of the Wavetable Draw oscillator which can now store up to 32 waveforms per preset. A Pipe64 input is provided for external control of the waveform shape.

XY Ranger A

A new ranger with control inputs for curve type, curve intensity, minimum value, maximum value & invert. Unlike the existing Control Curve module this one can operate at full control resolution. The module also features a bi-polar to unipolar convertor and a variable dezip which can be switched on/off dsp.

XY Ranger B

Eight XY Rangers with BC-Pipe control inputs for curve type, curve intensity, minimum value, maximum value & invert. Useful in situations where control rangers are to be used on a pipe connection.


About Samplerate Compensation

As you know BC Modular offers a variety of different control sources. Whether you're controlling parameters via the module's own popup panel or using an external control like a constant val module, a BCM encoder or even ScopeSync, parameter values provided for frequency and time are based on a 48kHz sample rate. So long as you're running at 48kHz these values will be accurate.

However, being a sample accurate system, the frequency and time parameters are effected when you switch to a sample rate other than 48kHz. The MVC's adjust for this automatically, but for parameter control independent of the MVC there can be noticeable issues with inaccurate frequency and time values when running at 32kHz, 44.1kHz or especially 96kHz.

This is something I've been aware of for some time now and I've been working on some solutions over the past few months. As well as updating a number of BC Modular modules, I've also developed a few new additions to combat this problem.

A MOST FESTIVE OCCASION.
THANKS SHARC.

P.S. It seems the BCFX Shell isn't included.
For the sake of perfection....Ankyu

The BCFX shell should be installed in ...Devices\Effects\Stereo so that it shows up as a stereo insert effect ;)

There does however appear to be a small issue with the default path for the modular modules. So long as you browse to the correct path for your Scope modular modules it should install the modules as intended inside a 'BC' folder. When using the default path the installer creates the 'BC' sub directory inside a 'BC Modules' folder. It still works, but it's a bit fiddlier with the menu navigation.

If anyone finds they have this problem, I'd advise to uninstall BC Modular instead of moving the files. When reinstalling browse to the Modular Modules folder at the prompt and that should sort it :).

Sorry for any inconvenience this causes. It unfortunately didn't show up in tests at this side before release.

I found it and stuck it in the Special Inserts folder I have.
I had no issues with the installment.
I simply took the original folder drug it out to desktop, then installed with the exe.
Then browsed over modules that were different and combined them.

Really nice update Sharc.
I truly appreciate the BCFX.
