Its natural sound that is typical for Beyerdynamic and its super-cardioid polar pattern with high feedback rejection are valued by vocalists, DJs and speakers in rehearsal rooms and on the stage. Thanks to the high output level, the TG V35d s only needs a simple pre-amplifier in order to deliver impressive results.
It features a noiseless on/off switch and includes an XLR cable, clamp and storage bag.
Sound Channelling Technology:
- Treble resonator to expand the upper frequency range
- Special sound holes for increased feedback reduction
The Hirlostek needs to be provided with 5V voltage - a circuit inside the bigger plug generates a bright digital noise that you can use as an audio or modulation source. The narrower plug carries the noise signal and is to be connected either with an audio input or a CV input.
The Heklev comes equipped with three potentiometers to adjust delay time and feedback of the BBD circuit as well as the mixture of dry and processed signals. A CV input allows the user to modulate the echo's rate. The results are sent to the VCA, which can also be influenced by control voltages. Heklev offers three outputs. They emit dry and mix signals of the effect block as well as material coming from the VCA.
On the circuit board of the Heklev, there are five trim potentiometers. These control elements make it possible to adjust input and output volumes, the BBD bias, noise cancelling as well as the range of the echo time knob.
Even if the module is pretty simple it has LOTS of character. We find an input and one output level control and also a big cut-off controller. The small grey knob controls resonance. A cut-off CV input with attenuator is there as well but that's about CV control. Frequency behaviour is very dependent on the other parameters' settings.
This boutique module is hand-wired, has a beautiful laser-etched perspex faceplate and the big - knob is vintage.
As the module is inductor based it can easily pick up hum and electric fields so keep it away from the power supply transformer.
Very characteristic for the module's sound if the feedback that is coupled to the feedback. The more fuzz, the more feedback - the Strakal Brulu 2 can get pretty nasty and it screams a lot at high fuzz settings and low input level. The fuzz amount can be voltage controlled, with an inverse attenuator. Input and output levels can also be set separately.
