The EarthQuaker Devices 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 inverting attenuator. The Afterneath module has a completely analog dry signal path and a totally digital wet signal path.

The Afterneath Module further expands upon EarthQuaker's wildly popular Afterneath pedal with the addition of voltage control over the Diffuse, Length and Drag controls. We have also added an entirely new voltage-controlled "Mode" parameter that changes how the Drag responds to knob and CV changes.

When adjusting the Drag via the knob or CV, you will notice a change in character, fidelity and decay length of the effect. There is also a noticeable change in pitch for the sound that is in the Afterneath's buffer. As with the Afterneath pedal, high settings of the Reflect and Length controls result in self-oscillation, where the pitch of the oscillation is set by the Drag control. There are nine modes that govern the behavior of the Drag control and its effect on the pitch of the sound in the buffer:

Unquantized: Smooth, unquantized response over the entire operating range of the Drag parameter.

Unquantized with Slew: Smooth, unquantized response over the entire operating range, but with a musical slew that is reminiscent of turning the varispeed knob on a vintage British tape delay. The "Drag" will lag behind the knob or CV changes, but then quickly catch up.

Unquantized Volt/Octave: Smooth and unquantized, yet scaled to align with the 1V/octave curve to allow melodic modulation of audio in the buffer, or control the frequency of self-oscillation like a voltage-controlled oscillator.

Chromatic Scale: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to intervals within the Chromatic scale.

Major Scale: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to intervals within the Major scale.

Minor Scale: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to intervals within the Minor scale.

Pentatonic Scale: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to intervals within the Pentatonic scale.

Octaves and Fifths: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to octaves and fifths of the original pitch.

Octaves: Quantized to 1V/octave, so that it jumps to octaves of the original pitch.

Beyond modulated delay and reverb effects, modes 3-9 extend the possibility of using the Afterneath Module as an interesting voltage-controlled oscillator. Another new feature found only in the Afterneath Module is a Dry Kill switch that allows access to a 100% wet signal. Perfect for when you are using the module as an effect send from your mixer or digital audio workstation!

Last, but certainly not least, we have added a Reflect Send and Reflect Return jack. This not only allows external processing of the Afterneath's Reflect feedback path, but also gives the user access to a phenomenal pseudo-stereo effect. In addition to patching from the main output, you can also patch from Reflect Send jack (For example, using the main audio output as your left channel, and the Reflect Send as your right channel). This provides a wide, immersive, ambient stereo image. This is a great trick for when using the module as an effects send for your favorite modular, mixer or DAW. Additionally, the Reflect Return jack can be used as an additional audio input. The Reflect knob will act as an attenuator for any signal that is patched into the Reflect jack.

The new features in the Afterneath module transform the original Afterneath into an ambient powerhouse and an instrument unto itself.

Features:
- Same otherworldly reverb algorithm built from an adjustable cluster of short delays in a 16HP Eurorack format
- Ranges from scattered individual delays to an immersive wash of atmospheric reverb
- New voltage control over the Drag parameter with 9 unique modes of user-selectable sweep: Unquantized, Unquantized with Slew, Unquantized Volt/Octave, Chromatic, Major, Minor, Pentatonic, Octaves & Fifths, Octaves. These new modes of operation push the already unfuckwithable Afterneath into a whole new realm.
- Features audio send and return for the Reflect feedback path
- Drag, Mode, Diffuse, and Length parameters are controllable via CV, each with dedicated inverting attenuators
- Features Dry Kill switch to eliminate the dry signal from the output, leaving only the wet signal
- Capable of pseudo-stereo operation by using the Reflect Send as an additional output
- All analog dry signal path and a totally digital effect signal path
- Lifetime guarantee

New Products
Brand-new products are shipped from the vendor's factory to our warehouses, then from the warehouse to you – there's no detour through a retail store where the boxes are opened, and the products put on display and sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you're comparing new, factory-fresh gear from authorized US dealers like zZounds.

Clearance Gear: Special Opportunities to Save Big!
When It's Not New, We Tell You
We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise from manufacturers. And sometimes, we get customer returns in less than perfect condition. We offer these products to you at special discounts – and we always identify it clearly using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, your product is new from the factory.

Warehouse Resealed
Warehouse Resealed gear is typically a customer return. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. However, the packaging may be slightly compromised and thus not in absolutely perfect, unused condition like our new inventory. This inventory is a great value.

Blemished
This is typically a customer return with minor cosmetic imperfections, such as superficial scratches or scuffs on the finish. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly. It may be less attractive than Warehouse Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower! This inventory is a great value.

Scratch and Dent
This is typically a customer return that shows general wear and tear, along with dents and scratches. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly, but will show signs of use. It may be less attractive than Blemished inventory, but it's priced even lower! This inventory is a great value.

Factory Resealed
Factory Resealed gear is typically a purchase directly from the vendor, who may have used the product at a training session or at a trade show. It may also be a factory-refurbished product. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. However, the packaging may be slightly compromised and thus not in absolutely perfect, unused condition like our new inventory. This inventory is a great value.

B-Stock
B-Stock gear is typically a purchase directly from the vendor, who may have used the product at a training session or at a trade show, or it may be a refurbished product. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and it is guaranteed to work perfectly, but it may have a cosmetic blemish. It may be less attractive than Warehouse or Factory Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower! This inventory is a great value.

* Warranty coverage for non-new gear varies by manufacturer. Contact Us to see if this item includes a warranty.
