le SQUARE

TOFSTUFF is a collection of irregular audio-art-instruments created by Thomas O Fredericks in Verdun, Quebec, Canada. Some instruments can be bought, others can be DIYed. Some generate sounds, some catalyze destruction, others are simple utilities. Send all your praise and interrogations to tof@tofstuff.com.

le SQUARE
le SQUARE

le SQUARE is a simple MIDI thru box that distributes 1x 3.5mm MIDI input to 4x 3.5mm outputs. It is powered through USB and properly opto-isolated. It is rather small as a 2" x 2" square.

Each module comes with 4 designs for the faceplate. Select the one you like the most.

BETA: The module is currently in alpha testing. If you are interested in trying the alpha, send an email to tof@tofstuff.com.

showdown
showdown

Showdown is designed to be the FINAL(showdown) module in your Eurorack modular chain. It brings Eurorack levels DOWN to Line levels.

Showdown is a 2HP Eurorack module that combines two Eurorack level inputs to a single stereo line level output. A 30mm travel slider controls the stereo line level ouput volume.

BETA: The module is currently in beta development. If you are interested in trying the beta, send an email to tof@tofstuff.com.

puppeteer
puppeteer

Puppeteer is a multi function Eurorack 8HP module. It can convert MIDI to Eurorack and provides an additonnal 4 CV outputs for envelopes, presets, random, etc.

The panel can be flipped to the male or female stereotypes.

ALPHA: The module is currently in closed alpha development.

Supernova
Supernova

Supernova is a 2HP Eurorack Low Pass Gate (LPG), with extreme settings for resonance and distortion. It is analog and provides different combinations of capacitors that create different low pass filter slopes. It does not use a vactrol as is typical, but an actual LED (that shines through the panel) and light-sensitive resistors. The design is very reactive to gate time and amplitude and offers smooth rise and decay slopes. The toggles allow the player to reconfigure or break the circuit for total super explosive distortion and resonance.

BETA: The module is currently in beta development. If you are interested in trying the beta, send an email to tof@tofstuff.com.

MozArd
MozArd

MozArd is a digital micro-synthesizer that is easy to assemble in less than 2 hours. It features a 12-key keyboard which allows you to play all the notes of an octave and 3 potentiometers to adjust the sounds produced by the micro-synthesizer. For advanced users, these sounds can be reprogrammed.

MozArd is based on Mozzi and an Arduino Nano microcontroller.

BUY: The MozArd kit can be bough from KidZlab.

MAKE: You can make your own from the GitHub Source Repository
