Iron Ether Arcing Prisms
Arcing Prisms is a new pedal I'm introducing today. It combines a frequency shifter and a comb filter/delay line, locked together in a spiraling feedback loop of warped modulation.
Read more details and hear it in action:
I'm looking forward to hearing what you think, and what kind of unique new music you'll make with it! ... See MoreSee Less
ordered one up, hoping it responds well to bass , thanks for the cool product Tim in Junction City
Wow wow wow. This sounds crazy. Gonna need to get a new bulb for my lava lamp.
Love it! If you could put up a few bass clips, that would be great. Super-intrigued to hear this operating on a bass signal.
You got me. Done. I haven't bought any new stuff since my C4 back in August. Happy to add an early one of these to my IE list. One of these days once we're past the 'end times' and onto post apocalyptic dystopia, I need to send my IE XD back to you...it's one of the batch that had some issues...Nov. 2016.
Very sweet! Sounds very musical, different and new, nice job - as usual! 👍
I hope to support you guys and get some of your badass equiptment soon
Love your pedals. Dont stop for nothin.
Holy shit this looks awesome
Dude. This is incredible.
Wow! A new one?!
Thanks for your thoughts on my previous post, everyone. I'm glad to know that you're all still looking forward to hearing about new musical devices from Iron Ether, despite the weird times we're living in right now. We're all in this together. ... See MoreSee Less
Iam working at home not a lot of time to music, but been always feeding my desire with a fast look in to my pedal chains and my synthesisers...
Just watched the Dubterranea video from Janek. Blowing minds out here 🤯
More IE please =)

Are y'all still interested in hearing about pedals and synthesizers in a crazy time like this? I reckon most of us have more serious things on our minds and worry that it might seem silly or even disrespectful to be posting about non-essential noise-makers right now. Just wanted to hear what you think. ... See MoreSee Less
The show must go on. Not silly, nor disrespectful. It's not good for the individual & collective psyche to focus 24/7 on the same thing during times like this: It makes everything worse.
a lot of financial difficulties for both businesses and consumers right now, a lot of GoFundMe's and sales and creative ways to keep businesses going. I think it's time more than ever for everyone to support each other and to try to continue to clutch on to our fragile economy and way of life we are all too comfortable with. Translation - fuck yeah!
I'm sure most of us do have more serious things on our minds, but we still need distractions to feel like we're not alone and the world will return to 'normal' one day.
Please, I welcome the distraction.
Nothing wrong with talking about pedals. Good to focus on creative tools, and take a break from the storm! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Yes please bro, everyone is home anyway, let's be productive and learn stuff and make the most of the time.
Taylor your wisdom is needed now more than ever dude. Noise makers have always been essential btw so don’t stop
No such thing as ‘it is not the time’ for synths and sounds or music in general. It is always time for music and music/noise making devices! Please be serious and don’t distract yourself over petty everyday life stuff like viruses and TP shortage! Nowdays even viruses are ‘made in china’ so we desperately need some quality IE stuff!!!!
yall are the best, keep doing awesome stuff!
Now is the BEST time to hear about pedals and synths!
I can't buy anything right now, but would love the distraction of planning future purchases!
yes please 🙏 we can't stop dreaming or hoping!
Creativity heals, both the musician and the listener. Please share!
Everything else on Facebook and basically everywhere else is anxiety plagued garbage, esp when you don’t have any control over the course of things other than not being a part of the problem. So, yeah - pedals, synths, tech, learn, create, repeat.
I look forward to hearing and seeing your work, thank you!!!
100% love hearing about new products
Helps maintain my sanity.
I feel like especially in times like this it is important to keep up a degree of normalcy. If everyone is sitting at home in isolation, every bit of distraction is appreciated! So keep ‘em coming!!
Keep it coming! Drown out the fear engine.
If anything, I want MORE synths in my life
Need that distraction. Your pedals are amazing. Dont let this thing stop any of us from doing what we love until the very last possible moment. Soo... Carry On. Please. Carry on!!
We need it more now than ever!
Distractions are good.
What he said.
Yes, please man!! 🎸🎛

Here's a new Eurorack module I've been working on - still in development so details may change.
Qwoso is a 26HP quad wavetable oscillator with sub octaves. It has a somewhat gritty, characterful sound and was created with a few primary goals in mind:
-to make it easy to experiment with harmony in modular, without having to spend lots of time tuning and retuning - to this end, the Note knobs and pitch CV inputs are quantized to semitones, but continuous pitch bends, vibrato, and subtle detuning are still possible with the FM inputs and fine tune knobs.
-to have numerous harmonically complex, different-but-related, outputs available for percussion synthesis.
-to offer a large variety of sounds and possibilities, but with an immediate, knobby physical interface. No screen, no menus, no modal controls or button combos to remember, no cheat sheet necessary.
Each of the 4 voices has its own frequency and fine tune knobs, V/oct pitch CV input, FM input with attenuator, and a main output and sub octave output. Note CV and FM inputs are normalled together, so all voices can be controlled by one CV. If you need a voice to have no pitch input, you can connect your first pitch control to voice 2, etc.
There are three mix outputs: one for main outputs, one for sub outputs, and one with all 8 outputs mixed together to make patching easy.
The Wave knob and its CV input with attenuator control all voices simultaneously, with smooth interpolation between waves. The Poly Wave knob and CV input let you shift the waves for voices 2 through 4 farther from this base wave value, meaning that each of the 4 voices can have a different waveform if you choose. Modulating the Wave and Poly CVs with two un-synchronized LFOs makes for some cool evolving pads that never repeat quite the same.
Each voice has an associated sub-octave output. The sub-octave waves are more interesting than the typical square - covering sine, sawtooth, pulse, sine with an octave up (kind of organ-ish), and some complex wavetables. The Sub control also selects whether the sub-octave is two octaves down from the main out, one octave down, unison, or one octave up. The sub CV is not interpolated, so you can get discontinuous octave shifts and sharp rhythmic wave transitions sequencing this parameter.
There is a Glide time knob for portamento (turn down all the way to turn glide off completely), and a gate input to allow switching glide on and off with a gate or CV.
There is also a bit crushing function, controlled by the Crush knob and CV input, which takes the waves from 8-bit down to 1-bit for more extreme griminess and added high frequencies. ... See MoreSee Less
Oh hell yes
