Patch Notes #17 - Reaktor Blocks As Eurorack Sequencer

Published on Sep 1, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes #17 explores the Reaktor Blocks patch that we created in our previous tutorial, sending sequences via MIDI to the Make Noise 0-Coast, and triggers to 3 different Eurorack Drums.

Our Reaktor Blocks patch is running an 6 step sequence in pendulum mode out via MIDI to Mutable Instruments Yarns. Yarns channel 1 CV and gate outputs are routed to the the Make Noise 0-Coast pitch and gate inputs. The Korg SQ-1 is in random mode with a 2 volt range, sending one CV channel out to the voltage math section on the 0-Coast. One mult out from the voltage math section to the FM input on the oscillator, and one to the overtone section. A clock from the Make Noise Tempi is routed to the tempo input, and the stepped random out is routed to the decay length of the contour section. Out to the Malekko Mix4.

Roland System 1m is playing the pads/bass. A channel on Tempi sent into a mult, then on to clock Brains and Pressure Points, one channel of which is routed to the System-1m. The multed clock is also routed to the gate input on the System-1m. Internal LFO on the 1m is modulating the pulse width on the two slightly detuned square waves, long envelopes on the low pass filter and amp, and drenched in reverb and delay.

Reaktor Blocks is also generating 6 clock divisions from an internal clock divider, which is routed to the Gates & Trigs module. This device converts the gates from the clock divider to triggers, which are then individually routed out to 3 drum modules and Tempi. One rhythm is routed to the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas, which is creating the glitchy, metallic snares. The BI clock source is multed to Make Noise Maths as well, channel 1 of which is routed out from both the unity and variable outputs to the morph and fold functions on the BI. Another Tempi channel is routed to the Make Noise Wogglebug as well, which is randomizing the BI pitch.

The kick and hihat are coming from the Scooper, in the Aira modular drum machine configuration we've covered about a year ago. The hihat length is randomized by the SQ-1 channel B. All modules are routed back through the Mix4, and on to the ping pong delay in Mutable Instruments Warps in Parasite mode."

Teisco 110F Synthesizer w/ Midi

via this auction

"Up for sale is the rare and amazing Teisco 110F. It's a duophonic synth similar to the Arp Odyssey and has PPC similar to the Odyssey but is a very different beast indeed. It has a great sounding 24db filter and an additional filter bank that you can route through as you wish percentage wise. There are leds giving you feedback as the audio passes and modulations occur in each stage of the audio path, very amazing. With cv connectivity it's great to use with a modular or an analog sequencer. Everything works great including the added midi kit*(more info below). There are a few blemishes on the end caps but otherwise this is very clean. The PPC does take some force to use but is perfectly normal, I keep it on the most sensitive setting on the sensitivity knobs so i don't have to strain as much. It's very reliable and the oscillators are stable over many octaves, you'll love this synth. It will be packed very carefully and double boxed so you can be sure it will get to you safely. Any q's just ask.

*MIDI to CV-Gate Interface MCV-628 by Papareil Synth Labs. The interface lets you control notes and one selectable control (either Filter Cutoff, PWM1 or PWM2). The button is an auto learn button to learn the midi channel of the incomming midi messages. The switch is to choose if either the notes will be triggered by the keyboard or the incoming midi. The knob has 4 positions and decide which parameter will be affected by modulation message (cc1): 1-cutoff, 2-PWM1, 3-PWM2, 4-OFF. The LED is a multi purpose led which blinks 3 times at power on, after the complete init of the cpu/software. It means "All is ok". In normal working condition, the Gate led lights when a note is played or if a recognised SysEx message is received. […] When the interface is in Autolearn mode, the Gate led stay on, until a MIDI message has been received."

Star Trek Voyager Theme - Juno 60 and Modular Synth

dawn of the swarm interpolator

Published on Sep 1, 2016 Jörg Schaaf

"The RT-311 Swarm Oscillator has a parameter snapshot interpolator, that creates continuous and smooth blends between different snaphots. The Spread pot controls the number of snapshots that get interpolated and the Speed controls the interpolation speed. This is the first demo of it. In the next video you will have the chance listening to the interpolation for the first time. The track in the background is a demo, I created around 10 years ago with the Spectralis and a chorus and phaser fx."

How To DIY DrumPad for your SYNTH or DRUM MACHINE

Published on Aug 31, 2016 LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"Some people asked how to make the tinfoil drum pads in one of my videos. so just made an Art Attack style how to. these pads should work with most synths/drum machines or whatever you have that have gate/trigger ins.

3 x AA batteries.
gaffatape and the rest is up to you.

like modular, maybe an ARTURIA micro brute or something similar like an KORG odyssey or something.

**start with 3 batteries, if it isn't triggering chances are there isn't a good contact somewhere.
but if your sure of it, maybe put another battery in the row, but don't go over 4 then you might be in sketchy breaky territory. the power they send out is pretty low because of the crappyness of tinfoil. so there won't be any casualties. if your a bit worried about that then put a 1k resistor between the positive side of the battery and the drum wire, but everything your plugging it into will have protection incase something goes wrong anyways. but don't plug up too many batteries or you might start a synth fire, no one wants that.**

Dirt Clocking the Piston Honda

Published on Aug 31, 2016 davidryl

"Not really 'clocking' but slowing down the output waveform frequency on The Harvestman Piston Honda Mk1 by using a -4 volt input from the Q123 Standards module to the center frequency.

Sending modulation into the Yon CV input from a Sputnik West Coast Random Source. Also a slow LFO from the Intellijel Quadra into the Hither CV.

The ROM selections were Hither = C and Yon = D of the B.Smith chip set.

Morph Discontinuity was fully smoothed and both Hither and Yon were interpolated waveforms.

Towards the end section I was manually morphing the waveform position to find nice little drone "nodes". What is normally a blistering high frequency turned into a smooth midrange tone. I love the Piston Honda!

Additional flange effect was the Synthetic Sound Labs 1210 Digital Delay with modulation from the WCRS.

Two Lexicon MX200's in reverb and reverse delay modes were the final effects.

Recorded in two passes to Cubase. Video edited in Final Cut Pro."
