EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath

The Earthquaker Devices Afterneath is a Eurorack adaptation of Earthquaker's powerful guitar pedal of the same name. It provides otherworldly reverberations, constructed from clusters of short delays.

The Eurorack version of the Afterneath has nine controls, four of which have CV inputs with attenuverters. Length sets the length of the reverb. Diffuse adjusts the spread of the reverb. At lower settings, the reverb effect is sharper with more attack...and as it is turned up, it becomes more textural and ambient. Reflect controls the regeneration of the reverb. At higher settings, the unit will begin to self-oscillate. The Eurorack module adds reflect send and return to allow for external processing to be inserted into the reflection feedback path. The reflect knob as an attenuator when a signal that's patched into the input. Taking the reflect send straight out into a mixer will allow for pseudo-stereo operation, providing a rich stereo image. Dampen is a filter with more filtered, darker tones when turned counterclockwise and brighter tones in the clockwise direction.

Drag takes the cluster of short delays and separates them, creating stuttering effects. Changing the drag control, either manually or by control voltage will cause a noticeable change to the fidelity, character, decay, and pitch of the effect. The mode control selects between one of nine modes that the drag control can operate in. These include unquantized, unquantized with slew, unquantized 1V/Oct with exponential response, chromatic, major, minor, pentatonic, octaves/fifths, and octaves. The scale modes quantizes the drag control to the corresponding scale and allows Afterneath to function as a powerful voltage controlled oscillator when self-oscillating at high reflect and length settings. The Dry Kill mutes the input signal for a 100% wet effect.

The Afterneath Eurorack module not only takes an already powerful pedal effect and adapts it into Eurorack, but adds additional functionality that greatly expands the sonic palette available from the unit.

Earthquaker Afterneath Reverb in Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Format
Afterneath is Earthquaker's first foray into producing Eurorack modules, adapting their cult classic reverb pedal into a washy, shimmering tool for modular synthesists. Expanding on the original Afterneath design with additional reverb modes and the addition of CV control, Afterneath Eurorack is a great way to add some space to any Eurorack system.

Afterneath excels at reverbs that evoke a sense of unrealistically huge, empty spaces. Diffused echoes bounce off distant walls, and sonic ghosts emerge from soft, washy reflections and short, chattering delays. Allowing CV control of the Drag parameter, the Afterneath can be played melodically and constrained to different scales and pitch classes based on the selected Mode, allowing sequenced reverbs that form a counterpoint against the sounds that feed them.

A powerful new tool for sonic exploration of the unreal, the Afterneath module marks an exciting step of one of the most interesting pedal manufacturers into the world of modular synths.
Afterneath Eurorack Module Video Manual - EarthQuaker Devices
The Afterneath Eurorack Module brings the Otherworldly sounds from the effects pedal world right into your modular synthesizer with an expanded feature set. The Afterneath module features one main audio input, one main audio output, an audio send and return for the Reflect feedback path, and nine controls. Four of the parameters are controllable via CV, and each has been equipped with a dedicated attenuverter to process the incoming CV. The Afterneath module has a completely analog dry signal path and a totally digital wet signal path.
