Sovage Engineering

"DISTORTION IS NOT AN OPTION"

SOVAGE ENGINEERING is an electronic music instrument boutique from France, designing gear full of character !

It all started while servicing my studio equipment, giving a second life design to my vintage pieces.

The fact of being a sound engineer and sound designer has led me to repair, mod and create my own equipment for personal needs.

I don’t know why but I’ve always been pleased by the tone of faulty gear. After trying to mimic some of these dysfonctionnements, I've decided to build my personal distortion boxes and noise generator solder on protoboards into some DIY enclosure.

And after many years of studies and practice, I’m finally happy to share my creations with you, in a sturdy and professional format.

Knowing the rules, my goal is to defy them and make distinctive tools that will instantly spice up the music writing process and will allow you to exceed your limits to some extreme and unexplored territory !


"IF IT SOUNDS NORMAL, SOMETHING IS WRONG !"

All products are designed, and assembled in France with high quality components, care and love.

L'ÉCORCHEUR, FAILLE TEMPORELLE, TEINTE, TEINTE STEREO and BOUCAN are among Sovage Engineerings most popular products.

Sovage Engineering TEINTE STEREO
7 Nov 2023 Sovage Engineering
In response to popular demand, I've successfully developed a stereo version of TEINTE. The exciting news is that I've managed to reduce its cost by using smaller components, all while maintaining its original tone! This means the price of the mono version has been lowered, and the stereo version is now incredibly affordable. These will be available this Friday, November 10th, alongside a full restock of the other modules.

1 Sep 2022 Sovage Engineering
L’ECORCHEUR is an aggressive distortion filter with a unique character. You’ll need a few tweaks here and there to bring more presence to your sound. Equipped with an overdrive input, a resonante distortion and a feedback glitchy sub-oscillator, a crusher and a grr-gritty diode limiter at the output. 
Sovage Engineering FAILLE TEMPORELLE
1 Sep 2022 Sovage Engineering
FAILLE TEMPORELLE is a self proclaimed “world’s first time warping distortion”, that can go from soft overdrive to extreme clipping distortion. You’ll be able to go from the analog-ish lofi tape echo to a full garbage delay/looper.
