Qu-Bit Electronix Nautilus

Batten the hatches, because Qu-Bit Electronix is seafaring with their sub-nautical, complex multi-delay line effects module: Nautilus. Billed as sub-nautical, the Nautilus is inspired by sonar and the underwater topographical maps it can creates, this stereo delay uses its eight delay lines to create complex networks that traverse an aquatic path. Synced with an external or internal clock in unique ways, the rhythms it generates interact with each other to create new patterns.

Not limited to sonic interactions, the Nautilus has a gate/CV output called Sonar. Using the settings and algorithms selected, Sonar will output a gate signal or CV that's based on the explorations of the delay lines. Explorations are deep and vast with each delay line able to be up to 20 seconds long and with three different settings—Fade, Doppler, and Shimmer—the deep sea diving and aquatic spelunking will yield plenty. Enjoy the solitude of the sea with the Nautilus, a deep sea, sub-nautical, multi-delay line module from Qu-Bit Electronix.

It's nearing the end of another great year in synthesizers and pro-audio, and we look back with our friends on some of our favorite pieces of kit we tried out in 2022!
Nautilus Tutorial 1: Getting Started
Nautilus is a complex delay network inspired by sub-nautical communications and their interaction with the environment. In essence, Nautilus is a stereo delay consisting of 8 unique delay lines which can be connected and synced in interesting ways. Each time Nautilus pings its sonar system, the generated topography reveals itself through the delay, all while staying in time with the internal or external clock. Complex feedback interactions plunge sounds to new depths, while related delay lines pull fragments of sound in different directions. Manipulate the delay lines even further by configuring the the stereo receptors, sonar frequencies, and aquatic materials that filter the space between Nautilus and its surroundings.

Though Nautilus is a delay effect at heart, it is also a CV/Gate generator. The Sonar Output creates either a unique Gate signal, or a unique CV signal algorithmically generated from Nautilus’s findings. Drive other parts of your patch with pings from the delay network, or use the generated topography as a modulation source.
