"We're in an Octopus' Garden"
The WMD Kraken is a physical modelling snare drum module for eurorack modular synthesizers.
100% digital synthesis with the ability to make realistic snare drums of all sizes, shapes, materials and colours.
Kraken uses a network of classic synthesis blocks like delay, digital filters, and noise to create a very unique resonator.
Although Kraken does not use any recordings to generate sound, you can get a perfectly repeatable snare sound, similar to a sampler by using digital noise to generate the sound of the "snares". Dial in the decay to cut the sound short, and use different gate lengths to mimic "gate" mode style sounds in samplers.
At some shell settings, gain gets loud and fedback like running a snare mic through a distortion pedal. The wavefolder sounds like over-the-top compression with lots of high frequency content. The bit depth reduction setting let's you dial in a desired amount of vintage digital artifacts.
Kraken is begging to be sequenced. Use the Head, Rim, and Accent gate inputs to start your basic rhythm of hits, sidesticks, rimshots and accented sounds and sequence the velocity input with a variable CV source to bring the pattern to life.

Pair with Crater, Fracture, Chimera, and Crucible for a unique set of drums for your Eurorack Modular Synthesizer.
