I think you should look at the Benjolin. I've built one, and it's one of my favorite modules. There's a software version of it out there. It uses a circuit called a Rungler that's really awesome.

There's some wonderful mods (and a redrawn schematic) here.
If you ain't hip to the rare Housequake, shut up already.

Damn.

There is one unit that isn't too hard to make but can be useful. AUTOPAN DELUXE

With a few different LFO shapes, parab/sine/tri/exp/etc. Maybe even a draw-able LFO shape
Different speeds. 2/1...1/16
Pan Depth
A step sequencer that lets you set/change LFO speed over 4-bars.

"True" pan or "cross-fade" pan.

For what do we need a auto pan in Reason while you can build one within seconds?

I'd love to see a good emulation of the uni-vibe effects pedal like Jimi Hendrix used. There are some nice tries but most of them miss the mark, I think. I'm unaware of any that actually came close.
Have you tried Audiority Tube Modulator or Amplitube's Univibe?
This is on sale for €10 just now at Plugin Boutique and you get a Sonible eq free with your purchase. Tried it last night and it’s pretty “vibey”.

Not with that feature set. And you have a single device that can save patches and ready for drop in inside a Combinator.
How do you wire up in seconds true pan, with custom LFO curve and set the LFO rate in a step sequencer fashion?

*UPDATE*
I have been mucking around in MATLAB Simulink with a few vintage guitar pedal circuits but am struggling to get a DSP implementation done. I came across a plugin that apparently can export Simulink models to a JUCE C++ Project, but the company that makes it did not return my emails.
If anyone has had any experience with this please share!

how about a "polyrhythm" RE ?

Something like the "Double-Sequencer" from the Moog Subharmonicon or the "second part from the left at the bottom"(Multirhythm Section? ) of Complex 1.

But maybe with more than 2 Signals and besides the Speed Controls (which will need to be A LOT, incl. Ts and Ds) also some control over "ticks" ( just a "slight" drift to left or right from the init start point of the signal)

It is not an original idea of course, but could get handy for generative stuff or hihats. aaand it would fit your "modular" series ! ;-)

---------------------------

And while i´m here i would be +1 for Joeys idea of an "Mirror-Modular" Series where the devices mirror all controls from the front at the back so you can stay there. Of course for modular stuuff !
This is a SmartAss. Really nothing more than that !

Thanks for the suggestion, I am always looking for ideas to add to the MODRACK range.

While writing i think i got a bit "over euphorized" and did go wrong for one thing: your modular series !

Your series goes down the "simple" approach where the user should be the one who´s "introducing the complexity", so a polyrhythm RE from you should stay simple, too !

Correcting my idea now:

1(single) Signal generator with delay , speed and "tick" controls!
But with the possibility to act as a "Master" or a "Slave", so they will be chainable.

While i think adding 4 "Slave" Jacks would be nice, i also think one would be enough ( because of all the CV-Splitter out there).
edit : ...... or add a "through" jack

Having multiple jacks (e.g. 16 to trigger all kong pads) is better imho as there will most likely be one batch of samples delay for each chained device. When using a master slave setup it would be good to have the option to set a delay on the master as well so all devices stay perfectly in sync.

The popularity over time of ID8 gives us extremely important insight. Reason owners crave one stop shopping! Especially when finding things in Reason is difficult because of the confusing Browser. So I'd say more Instrument Devices that refine the music staples producers need. And then make them easy to use like ID8.

Rack Extension port of VirtualCZ*
http://www.olilarkin.co.uk/index.php?p=virtualcz

Thor sounds different and this is THE classic Phase Distortion sound. Off to demo the Rob Papen one now...

"Already trialed". Noooooo. Feature suggestion: allow users to demo REs once every year. I can't remember when I trialled this but probably a couple of years ago when it came out.

*Oli has no plans to do a RE version himself, at least last time I asked a couple of years back.
