Dave Smith Instruments Eurorack Digital Character Effects Module with Girth, Air, Decimate, Hack and Drive Effects

Dave Smith Instruments DSM02 Character Module is a sound designer's tool kit of five unique digital effects for shaping, twisting and mangling sound in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. These effects — Girth, Air, Decimate, Hack and Drive — form the Character section of DSI's acclaimed Prophet 12 and Pro 2 synthesizers and contribute to their distinctive tone in a big way.

Plug it and play it
DSM02 is a 14hp eurorack format module with interconnections made using 3.5mm phone jacks. Two independent audio inputs and two independent audio outputs with shared control allow mono or stereo operation. A 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution digital signal path provides uncompromising signal fidelity.

Inject some mojo into your system
If you're looking to take your modular system into new sonic territory, DSM02 may be just the ticket. It's a fast and affordable way to inject your system with some serious mojo from two of the world's most in-demand synths.
