Awesome Effects for Your Eurorack

Add a unique set of sound-shaping tools to your Eurorack modular synth rig, with the Dave Smith Instruments DSM02 Character Module. Five digital effects are on tap, with descriptive names that leave no mystery about what they'll do to your sound. Add body and sparkle to your lead lines with Girth and Air, or rough up your sound with three distinct flavors of distortion with Decimate, Hack, and Drive. Two audio inputs and two audio outputs allow for stereo or dual-mono processing, and CV inputs let you manipulate the effects from external sources. The Dave Smith Instruments DSM02 Character Module is a great way to give your modular synth rig a unique voice.

Dave Smith Instruments DSM02 Character Module at a Glance:
  • A powerful addition to any Eurorack modular synthesizer
  • CV inputs for animated sounds
  • Effects you can't get anywhere else
A powerful addition to any Eurorack modular synthesizer

There's a lot you can do with the DSM02 Character Module, from subtle sweetening to full-on sonic mangling. Punch up lead lines and arpeggiated sequences, add an edge to softer sounds, create buzzing drones, and much more. With its high quality signal path and 24-bit/96kHz resolution, you can expect great sound no matter how you dial it in.

CV inputs for animated sounds

While the DSM02 Character Module is perfect for adding a distinctive color to any sound, you can also create some wild effects by patching into the individual CV inputs for each of the five effects. Send envelopes and LFOs from your other modules or analog synthesizers, and you can generate all manner of unique sounds and textures.

Effects you can't get anywhere else

One reason synth fanatics at Sweetwater love Dave Smith's character section (found on the Pro 2 and Prophet 12 synths in addition to this module) is that it gives you sound-shaping possibilities that aren't easily attainable with traditional effects processors. You can come somewhat close with very precise combinations of EQs, distortions, and other processors, or you could just tweak one knob on the DSM02 Character Module and be done with it. Hey, we love our filters and delays as much as anyone, but the DSM02 Character Module lets you manipulate sonic characteristics in ways that are highly intuitive - and musical!
