Mutable Instruments - Branches

Published on Sep 2, 2014 DivKidMusic

"Here's my latest overview for the eurorack modules 'Branches' from Mutable Instruments. It's a dual Bernoulli gate logic module which works like a virtual coin toss. Super useful and fun module.

"SBX-1 SYNC BOX being used at the Movement Festival in Detroit. The SYNC BOX is controlling 2x TR-8, 2x TB-3, 2x SYSTEM-1 and a [Make Noise] Rene which is receiving MIDI from the TB-3 and the SYNC BOX is converting to CV."

The Equation Composer by Microbe Modular

Equation Composer - Equation Player mode Published on Jun 30, 2014 clone45a6

Note this playlist runs through all videos by clone45a6. The first eight feature the Equation Composer as follows:

Equation Composer - formant synth "mumbler"
Equation Composer - 3 Oscillator Synth
Equation Composer - "Clickers" program demo
Equation Composer - chord mode with rotation
Equation Composer - Pattern Generator mode
Equation Composer - Chord Player mode
Equation Composer - Drum Selektor preset
Equation Composer - Equation Player mode

"Inspired by VIznut's 'Algorithmic symphonies from one line of code' and the BitWiz Audio Synth, the Equation Composer creates a wide range of gritty, 8-bit sounding melodies, waveforms, and noise. The module is organized into CV selectable "programs", where each program can act like a unique synthesizer.

The following programs ship with the Equation Composer:
[*]Equation Playback (3 banks)
[*]Drum Selektor
[*]Wavetable + WaveFolder
[*]3 Oscillator
[*]Drum Player

Internally, the Equation Composer is based on the powerful Arduino Due. Although the module has been built to be enjoyed "as-is", there's a prominent USB jack on the front for updating [url=https://github.com/clone45/EquationComposer]the firmware[/url], which is open source. 14 extra pins have been brought to an expansion header on the rear. The Arduno code itself is modular, allowing various software "modules" to be strung together into “programs” that act like individual synths. (Re-programming is recommended for advanced developers and requires some C++.)"


Volca Keys + Mt25d + microKORG XL + ESX-1 with Commodore 64 picture, 'Patos'

Published on Sep 2, 2014 Arrayzable

"I made a video some time ago featuring the Volca Keys with a 4 bar sequence.

http://youtu.be/dXE4Y7W9DRU?list=UUaT... 'KORGALICIOUS'

I wanted to re-use this sequence in a down tempo version. This is what came out of it.
Regarding the Monotribes sound I was inspired by Metatron's Cube's last video where unheard sounds emerged. I'm really satified with the Monotribe mod (MT25d) except for the clicks and the noise :D

Enjoy everybody and thanks for watching!"


Boomstar3003 - Muted v. Bright

"Raw file for unadulterated listening pleasure: tinyurl.com/mw7rpk5

Kind of a muted guitar versus 'buzz-clock' synth battle going on here.

A bit of the 'Kings Microphones' blended in at :32 - :36, with a doppler effect following; a touch of wash here and room there, but otherwise raw Boomstar sound.

Oh yeah, I dropped the pitch in DP an octave, and made various semitone modification on the muted phrases (in "clutch" areas, as my number one son would say)."
