Voltage Controlled DSP Effektor
Model of 1970
Timiszoara is a stereo, Eurorack compatible, voltage-controlled multi-effect signal processor based on the popular Spin Semiconductor FV-1 DSP chip. It features a full stereo signal path with two adjustable audio inputs, two outputs, and a stereo voltage-controlled wet/dry mixer. In addition, there is a microSD memory card slot on the front panel that allows for loading factory and custom effects without any restrictions or copyright protection, which means you can use many effects available on the Internet and even create your own.
Effect programs are organized in banks of 8 and can be selected using a rotary encoder, as well as CV and trigger signals. Timiszoara features a crisp OLED screen that displays the program parameters and its name. It also facilitates navigating the list of banks. Up to three parameters per effect can be controlled from the front panel with illuminated slider potentiometers and dedicated CV inputs.
We have prepared quite a few banks of algorithms (176 in total) that cover most effects needs: delays, reverbs, filters, modulation effects (such as choruses and flangers), pitch shifters, and, of course, shimmers (no multi-effects unit would be complete without its share of those). However, we wanted to ensure that users had access to some more adventurous programs, so we created some special banks to allow you to take a walk on the wild side.

Xaoc Devices Deva adds an external stereo analog loop to Timiszoara, allowing you to combine the power of digital effects with analog processing. The left and right channels each have a pair of send and return jacks, a polarity switch, an analog VCA, and a voltage-controlled tilt-type filter. Deva also features a CV input and indicator for the internal clock that drives Timiszoara’s DSP engine; this allows for speeding up or slowing down the rate of computing which affects the scale of time and frequency, allowing for effects such as long lo-fi delays and crunchy reverbs.
