We had a great time at Musikmesse in Frankfurt – talked to lots of fun and interesting people and saw some amazing gear. Andreas Schneider had gathered all modular makers under his Alex4 banner in a big stand where we shared space with Dr Doepfer, Ken Macbeth and many other legends. Ace!

Andy from Sonic State came over to chat with us about our modules, pedals and prototypes, here’s a video:

Big up to Andreas and Alex4 for putting an awesome show together. Cheers guys!

Ryan Sarver’s Bit Reactor

Our friend and fellow musician / electronics engineer Ryan Sarver has created an amazing sound crunching stomp box called the Bit Reactor. We’ve got one in the studio and it’s a lot of fun to use – timbres ranging from smooth to extremely gritty, and with a lot of personality!

We’re hoping to make a modular version of this beast, in the meantime you can get a pedal  from Ryan’s eBay listing - while they last!

Kickstarter FX Pedal

Rebel HQ has been buzzing with activity lately as we’re preparing to launch our first Kickstarter campaign.

The OWL is a programmable stompbox based on a very impressive ARM Cortex M4 chipset. A prototype has been completed and already has some pretty sweet patches running on it.

The plan is to raise enough money for the first production batch on Kickstarter, and run the project on its own website. We hope you will follow us and join in the project!

Rebel Solidarity

Freedom Press and Bookshop in Whitechapel, London, was firebombed on the weekend. We went down there yesterday to survey the damage and offer a little support.

This is in fact the second time the bookshop has been attacked. In March 1993 it was firebombed by the neo-nazi group Combat 18 (1 and 8 being the positions of Hitler’s initials in the alphabet – although universally ignorant of history, it seems some fascists can actually read). This time, no-one has so far claimed responsibility. No-one was injured in the attack.

Apart from being our favourite anarchist bookshop, Freedom Press also provides a home for other grass roots organisations including Corporate Watch, Solidarity Federation, Advisory Service for Squatters and the London Campaign Against Poverty. The newspaper and original printing press dates back to the 1880′s, and has a long history of involvement in local struggles as well as international solidarity campaigns.

To support Freedom, make a donation or take out a subscription. Rebel Technology will shortly be auctioning a few modules to help raise funds.

Rebel Technology: Κλάσματα


We are excited to announce the final module in the Euclidean series: Κλάσματα.

Κλάσματα is a single channel, voltage controlled Euclidean sequencer. With sequences of up to 32 steps it further broadens the rhythmic possibilities of Στοιχεῖα. Both sequence length and the number of fills can be simultaneously voltage controlled, allowing endless variations and long, evolving patterns.
