Percussa Super Signal Processor Eurorack Module PCBs Arrive


via the Percussa Kickstarter:

"Hi everyone!

Exciting news - today we received the PCBs for the SSP. They arrived about an hour ago and I immediately checked the quality of the top and bottom side, paying attention to small details such as whether the vias are nicely drilled in the center of pads, whether copper has 'leaked' over other copper potentially causing a short, and of course whether the through-hole components of the PCB sit nicely in the holes of the footprints or not. One other important detail I wanted to check is whether I could reach the display connector on the PCB with the display flatcable, which needs to be fed through a rectangular slot in the PCB. I had already checked that a million times before I sent off the files for production, in my 3D modeling software, and I had also checked it with a paper print-out of the PCB layout, but it's always good to actually check it in reality when you get the PCBs back.

I'm happy to report that everything is looking good (at least with the naked eye). Tomorrow I'll be doing a final check using my microscope, and then I'll be kitting the parts and a couple of PCBs, and sending that off to our subcontractor so we can get a few prototypes built for testing. As always I'll keep you posted about the latest news. Thanks again for backing!

Bert"

SSF Ultra-Random Analog Tutorial Videos by Learning Modular


Published on Nov 30, 2017 Learning Modular

"For more details about using the URA (as well as other modules I’ve made videos for), I encourage you to join the Learning Modular Patreon Tribe: https://www.patreon.com/LearningModular. For more on the Learning Modular Synthesis Eurorack Expansion Project for those exploring what module to add to their system next, visit http://learningmodular.com/eurorack-e..."

Playlist:

1. SSF Ultra-Random Analog 1/5: Overview (LMS Eurorack Expansion)
The Ultra-Random Analog (URA) is a very different take on the classic Buchla 'Source of Uncertainty' module. It is designed to be the clocked centerpiece of a complex random system or patch. This first movie features a brief drone jam using the URA, and then demonstrates each of its major sections:

0:00 short drone demo
1:36 specs & background
2:03 overview of major sections
5:15 sample & hold A
7:02 sample & hold B
9:28 toggle A/B
10:09 R-Flux (smooth random)
11:23 R-Pulse (random gates)
12:00 opto-integrator
13:14 cross-patching

2. SSF Ultra-Random Analog 2/5: Sample & Holds (LMS EE)
This second of five movies on the URA module dives deep into its two sample & holds, as well as the Toggle A/B Out that alternates between them. It is a particularly good overview of those who may be new to the use of sample & holds in general. The video breaks down like this:

0:10 “sample and hold” explained
0:32 sample & hold (S&H) A to pitch
2:35 S&H A to filter cutoff
3:34 sampling an external input
5:51 S&H A to VCO mix
6:44 sample & hold B
7:30 S&H B slew
8:02 external clock
8:52 using the two S&Hs together
10:08 toggle A/B
11:34 voltage-controlled clock

3. SSF Ultra-Random Analog 3/5: Random Gates + Opto Integrator (LMS EE)
This third of five movies on the URA module dives into its random gates & pulses section, including the associated opto-integration which can be used to smooth out those gates or an external signal. The video breaks down like this:

0:00 overview (including internal clock vs. random gates)
0:59 gate density & pulse divisions
3:10 triggering envelopes
6:02 opto-integrator
7:17 integration slope
7:45 processing other voltage sources

4. SSF Ultra-Random Analog 4/5: Random Flux (LMS EE)
This fourth of five movies on the URA module explains how its smoothly fluctuating “R-Flux” section works, including external voltage control as well as using it to add randomness to LFOs and envelopes. The video breaks down like this:

0:00 introduction
0:15 default R-Flux output (including clock rate)
1:25 R-Flux Influence CV (speed of changes)
2:25 R-Flux Probability CV (voltage range)
3:15 adding randomness to LFO shapes
5:08 adding randomness to envelopes

5. SSF Ultra-Random Analog 5/5: Audio Rate Clock Tricks (LMS EE)
This final movie on the URA module demonstrates a few “stupid pet tricks” with its voltage controlled clock: using it as a second VCO; using it to generate pitched noise that tracks the keyboard; and using it as a sample rate decimator to destroy your sound (which again can follow the keyboard). The video breaks down like this:

0:06 using it as a 1v/octave VCO
2:11 patching in a precision adder for octave offsets
2:50 pitched noise source
3:48 sample rate decimator (SR reduction)

SloBo - Bowed Strings synth made in SunVox


Published on Nov 30, 2017 cube48

"Sorry for out of focus video!

Little sound demo of SloBo - a synth made purely with SunVox modules, no samples involved. It's my personal study case of synthesizing a raw approximation of bowed instruments and learning about the articulation techniques of cellos, violins & Co. It's called SloBo because as of now it allows only relatively slow bowing articulation. Future versions or derivations might include other types of playing styles (need to dig deeper into the topic).

Big thanks to Alex Zolotov of SunVox (a.k.a. NighRadio) for his latest update of SunVox which allows multi-channel MIDI mapping of modules and allowing construction of MPE enabled patches!

Make Noise Announces Black and Gold Shared System Plus


via Make Noise:

"The Shared System re-made in Black and Gold w/ the Erbe-Verb, Morphagene, TEMPI, and CV Bus added in a steel case with the Make Noise logo. The personal favorite system of Make Noise founder Tony Rolando, this collection of modules is utilized by all artists for the Make Noise Records Shared System Series. It was also utilized by both Alessandro Cortini and Richard Devine for their performances at the 2012 Make Noise Opening party. The Shared System is the deepest and most complex of our systems bringing together all of our synthesis techniques into one system. From analog FM to voltage controlled granularization, the Shared System will go to more sound destinations than most folks have time to travel to in a single lifetime.

The CV Bus was originally designed for Alessandro Cortini's personal Make Noise system. It provides visual indication of level, rate and polarity for up to 4 control signals that will be shared throughout a patch. These 4 control signals are color coded and distributed across the center of the system allowing for quick, clean and intuitive patching. The distribution method is unlike the typical multiple since the control signals will appear beneath their possible destinations allowing for the use of shorter patch cables. The color coding and visual indication makes navigating complex patches easier and more intuitive. Typically, the CV Bus would be used to share the most important control signals in a patch such as your Master Clock.

The CV Bus also has the tools needed for integrating the Make Noise system with the outside world. A 1/4" Mono input with plenty of gain allows for bringing external signals into the system. The optimal 10Vpp signal level is visually indicated. A high quality Stereo Line Driver converts powerful modular synthesizer signal levels to the commonly used Line Level. There is mini-jack inputs for Left and Right, a single Master Volume control, and a TRS Stereo 1/4" output jack. This output is capable of driving long cable out to a PA System or a set of Headphones. It has AC coupling and a built-in limiting circuit (with visual indication) that prevents damage to ears and PA system when the patching gets experimental.

The powder coated steel Case is 2 lbs. lighter than our wood Shared System case without compromising mechanical durability. The sleek matte black finish was selected to match our line of Black and Gold modules. This finish will show the story of your modular synth's travels over the years. If you do not want that story to be told you will want to request your system to be built using our wood 7U case with scratch resistant black urethane coating."

two bright lights that emerged after 1:30 am on the
shadow terminator line which are quite obvious.
The beginning of the video was recorded at 10:30pm
and NO LIGHTS were present. I zoom into the lights
and you can see SMALLER LIGHTS twinkling around
the two larger lights. Aliens? Human Base on the Moon?
Actually this is just tips of mountains emerging from
the shadow but the illusion is just stunning because
it really looks like an ALIEN BASE ON THE MOON!
So tell me what you think! I would love to know!!!!

New ALM Busy Circuits ALM018 - ‘MUM M8’ 8hp Eurorack Low Pass Filter


ALM018 - 'MUM M8' from ALM on Vimeo.

Apparently Vimeo still does not support embedded playlists, so you will find the additional demos further below.


"‘MUM M8’ is an 8hp Eurorack low pass filter building on the filter design used in the classic Akai S950 12 bit sampler with the addition of resonance, voltage control, clipped saturation and a dedicated VCA.

The low pass filter gives the recognisable super smooth vacuum like tone sucking sound which works magic on complex sources. The addition of clipped overdrive and intentionally aggressive self oscillating resonance compliment the smooth filter core by juxtaposing it into more wasp like territory with acidic squeals and a more gritty sound.

The filter core is a 6th Order Butterworth switched capacitor type design featuring an analog core but controlled by a high speed digital clock. This produces the characteristic smooth sounding filter but, as with the original S950, has a relatively high minimum cut off as to avoid ‘clock bleed’ into the filter output from the digital control. This minimum cut of point can be controlled via trimmers on the rear of the module.

The motivation for the module came from discussing filters in classic samplers with the artist Jack Adams – aka Mumdance. Jack suggested investigating the S950’s filter well known as for it use in classic use in early jungle and hardcore. From that point onward Jack provided inspiration, help and feedback in the development of the filter. Big up Mumdance.

Features

Eurorack recreation of classic sampler filter with added resonance and voltage control.
Dual audio inputs, one with VCA and level control.
Dual CV (with attenuversion) and manual control of cut off frequency.
Single CV (with attenuation) and manual control of resonance.
Ability to overdrive and saturate signals into filter core.
Reverse polarity protection.
Skiff friendly.
Designed and Made in the UK

Roland CMU-800R w/ Radio Junkbox MIDI-IF Box & CV Out x 8


Published on Nov 28, 2017 Owen D RhythmDial

"Radio Junkbox midi box makes the CMU easily run by MIDI as shown here run by my Zaquencer. Drums from CMU run thru Vestafire distortions, synth parts just EQd and swept in Allen&Heath mixer, SpartaDelay and ZOOM reverb used in spots too."


The CMU-800R normally requires software and a vintage Apple II to work. The Junkbox MIDI-IF Box replaces that.

via this auction

"Nice condition vintage Roland CMU-800R and a MIDI-IF box from Radio Junkbox out of Japan that plugs into the weird super wide SCSI style original CMU cable and gives this unit great functionality by MIDI.

Individual audio outputs and main mix output.
Faders for audio levels work well for main mix adjustments.
Synth parts controls work well (decay, sustain)
8 channels of CV/Gate output based on MIDI channel inputs.
Power is 117v US power.
MIDI-IF box is awesome, includes its own 5V mini wall wart power supply, also sends out DINsync from incoming MIDI clock. Manual included for MIDI-IF box.

Sounds great too! Drums are very TR-606 like in circuitry and sound. The bass part is nice and full, deep and solid. The melody and chord part are similar sounding but chord part can play 4-note polyphony on its own. The synth parts are weak in their adjustment vs synths like the classic juno-106 but I’ve found adding fx like ring mod or resonant filters to them in eurorack or various rack units livens these parts up very well."

ARP 2600 Filter Adaptation - Tonus VCF Eurorack 4012 Module


Published on Nov 29, 2017 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2017

G-Storm announces a new all-analog eurorack module, the Tonus VCF. For a long time I wanted a vintage ARP 2600 synthesizer. Then it dawned on me, all I really wanted was a faithful adaptation of the filter in my eurorack. I'm calling it the Tonus VCF on account that the Tonus ARP logo design was used on the earliest 2600s. Without any further adieu, let’s listen to the Tonus VCF in action!

Great care was taken to keep the Tonus VCF design as close to the original as possible including component selection and transistor pair matching. My modules are painstakingly hand-crafted in the USA in limited quantities. The first units are planned to be available on Reverb.com next week, but my parts suppliers are dealing w/ holiday shipping volumes this time of year. Asking price $200 USD, international shipment available."

VCV Rack vs Hardware: is there a difference? Testing Mutable Instruments Clouds, Rings and Elements


Published on Nov 29, 2017 loopop

"One of the really interesting things about VCV Rack in my view is, besides being open source and free, that it comes with free versions of Mutable Instruments’ modules, some of the most sought after and successful eurorack modules. Controversially, Olivier (Mutable CEO) has decided to discontinue some of the most successful ones… yet the most admirable thing he does is to open source the code for his modules, so they have the potential to live on and evolve forever.

The big question I had is, how do they compare to the real thing? If the differences are small or even unnoticeable, VCVRack can become very disruptive.

I picked three of his most beautifully sounding modules (in my view of course…) Elements, Rings and Clouds (which is has been discontinued!) – and I compare the sound of the hardware to that of the software. These modules are digital, so they have a good chance of sounding similar, but DAC and other hardware magic or software tweaks might make a difference."

Synthesizers.com Introduces the TB22++ Thought Box 22-Space Synthesizer System


via synthesizers.com

"The Thought Box TB22++ is a 22-space synthesizer with 3 oscillators, a Q960 Moog-style sequencer, and an incredible array of modules in a rugged, fold-able cabinet. The folding cabinet is built like a tank and includes cable storage and a fold-out cable holder. TB22++ includes a power supply and a generous complement of color-coded, low-profile patch cables. Yes, you can close the system without removing your patch."

Note the built-in case handle.

"TB22++'s folding enclosure offers a brushed-aluminium handle. Turn the sleeves on the ends of the handle to unlatch and unfold the system in one easy step.

At the bottom of the enclosure is a channel holding the power supply along with storage for the patch cables. The channel's cover unfolds into a cable holder.

Module functions include: MIDI converter, arpeggiator, slew-limiter/portamento, three oscillators each with EG and VCA, gate math, sample & hold, noise with low-pass filter, sine/square LFO, dual envelope generator, state variable filter with VC resonance, 4-channel mixer with signal processing, VCA with panning, tuner and headphone amplifier, 8x16 step sequencer with trigger I/O, sequential switch, 3-channel quantizer.

Use TB22++ with any MIDI source such as a MIDI keyboard or a computer, or play it with the controls.

The two Box11 cabinets provide 4 groups of multiples and the Q175A module provides multiples for pitch and gate.

Folding enclosure with rugged hardware and a built-in power system. Goes anywhere.

Low-profile, color-coded patch cables included. See more about these.

The TB22++ is a Moog-Unit (MU) format synthesizer using 1/4" patch cables (included)."

Perfect Patch - Live No DAW Jam #19


Published on Nov 28, 2017 Jay Hoskins

"Title: Perfect Patch
Genre: Electronic Downtempo
Artist: Rite Rain Causality - Jay Hoskins

Played live and recorded directly from the stereo mixer outputs.

This was a short piece I put together for a recent contest by Perfect Circuit. Entries were posted to Instagram so there was only a minute to work with. It was hard to do something in a minute and there were more modulations to explore than would fit, not to mention that It is pleasant just to let it run.

In this performance the circuit is on the sidelines and I'm using the LFO on the Studio Electronics Tonestar 2600 for master tempo to the Tempi. Baseline is coming from the Pittsburgh Modular SV-1 sequenced by the Tempi and Akai Timbre Wolf. The other three voices of the Timbre Wolf are doing the pad chords through the Eowave Fluctuations filter. Tempi, Rene, and the Turing Machine are sequencing the Tonestar for the lead synth. The Tempi and Mutable instruments Braids provides the Kick. Finally the sparkle is added by Rings which is doubling the lead voice with a high frequency strike from Tempi."
