Ninstrument ‘SUPER’ Eurorack Modules - QCDG8, UTILITA, & COMPRESSWITCH

via Ninstrument

"Continuing in the same thread of combining eurorack modules together, here are a couple more examples. First is the QCDG8. I took a 4MS QCD and expander and smashed a Circuit Abbey G8 right in between. I also added much needed bufferred mults to the outputs of the QCD and expander. This has a nice flow with all of the jacks down the middle of the panel.

"Next is the UTILITA. Where do all of those clock outputs from the above QCDG8 go? This modules combines a Doepfer A-150, a Blue Lantern CMOS Party, 3 NE Sinclastic Empulatrix and a MI Branches. By combining them into one panel I can ‘normal’ some of the inputs making it much easier and quicker to patch. I also solidify my workflow. Remember ‘Familiarity’ breeds content. The more you get used to something the more it will seem like second nature."

"And last but not least is the COMPRESSWITCH. Here I take two Compressors from WMD and a Pittsburgh Switch and make them into one bad ass switchable compressor. This gets used in every patch I make.

As you gain experience with your modular synthesizer, you will start to see you will regularly patch your modules the same way most of the time. Once you establish the workflow you use most often, it makes sense to combine modules together into ‘SUPER’ modules if you will. You will obviously have your own ideas what you would make into a SUPER module, but that is the point. You are starting to think of your modular as your custom instrument and less like test equipment. Don’t be afraid of learning about what is behind the panel. It can be just as much fun as what is in front of the panel!"

Roland sh201 patch creation part1

Published on Oct 1, 2016 synth-love

"An exploration of the Roland sh-201 synthesizer. Includes the sh201 supersaw.

Various thoughts on the sh-201 (especially vs the jp 8000)

Short version, if you can get a JP-8000 there is little reason to buy the sh-201. However, the sh-201 is a great synth and not as crippled as it may appear. Nearly all parameters are accessible from the synth via various key combinations.

The sound is different with the sh-201 being a bit more raw to my ears. The JP-8000 sounds smoother. The sh-201 has a lot of aliasing on high notes. It did not show up in normal use but interesting for testing purposes. If I had to guess I would think that perhaps the sh-201 has parts of the audio path and/or dsp that are cheaper than the jp-8000. This gives bad sound in the high notes but actually makes the mid-range sound very nice and raw.

The envelopes seems tuned a bit strange - hard to get the right feel and seems to be a bit of dead space on the filter env amount slider.

It is very hard to come to a judgement on the sh-201 supersaw vs. the jp-8000. I have recorded some video to address this in particular.

The sh-201 distortion/overdrive is very useful but not like the jp8080 distortion. The jp8080 rack distortion is much more flexible. The jp8000 has no distortion at all.

The reverb is nice but I would take the JP-8000 chorus + delay over it. I feel I could get similar reverb elsewhere. The JP-8000 delay and chorus are special. The sh-201 delay can be made to give chorus and it does widen the sound nicely.

It is easy to double the patch memory by programming separate sounds for the upper and lower tone. I was not aware of an easy way on the sh-201 to make arbitrary pairings for splits and layers though.

The synth is very light. Construction seems ok - mine had an issue where the mod lever would activate itself and could only be fixed by a reboot. I only had the synth for a few weeks and did not attempt to fix it.

Also of note, the random and sample and hold LFO's are nice but slower than the JP-8000. I could not achieve a nice noise-lfo type sound with the fastest modulation."

Published on Oct 1, 2016 100 Things I Do

"I'm bored and uninspired of late with all the drums sounds I have in my library so I've started to make some new custom sounds from each of my synths. As the Music Easel does not have a noise source I thought it would be interesting to share some exploration of drum creation using mostly the opto-gates and modulation.

Korg Minilogue - Some Custom Sounds

Published on Oct 1, 2016 AiynZahevSounds

"Hi guys & girls, it occurred to me that I never uploaded this to youtube, just some sounds I made when I had the Minilogue. Almost all raw, but when you hear it in stereo that's double-tracking or Ableton's delay plugin. As you can hear early on, the resonance is very strong, and the built delay is quite gritty and noisy. You can also hear how versatile it is with it's various x-mod and sync modes."

Just TripsQuad and Two Sine Waves

Published on Oct 1, 2016 Oren Levy

"Audio path: STO goes through the first 2 channels of Tripsquad to mixer. Dixie goes one channel of optomix, into TQ's channel 3, out to optomix's channel 2, into TQ's channel 4 and out to mixer. One O+C is CopiesMaschine mode playing a quantized sequence to the oscillators but seperated by two steps. The other O+C is going about it's Low-Rents app doing silly modulations. On top of that, there is a done of other stuff modulating other stuff."

emu octave

Published on Oct 1, 2016 zack dagoba

"This is a demonstration of the Emu Modular doing something unique. It has a module called the Triple Latch which if patched in a certain way will divide down the pitch of an audio input by one octave. As there are 3 latches available it can create 3 downward octaves. So I patched an oscillator into latch one, then into 2 and 3, and the original signal and the divided ones into an Emu mixer to get 4 octaves from one VCO. Pretty cool! I used the ARP2500 sequencer to send the Emu a pattern, and used the Emu Voltage Controlled Transient Generator to vary the envelopes (using other outputs from the ARP Sequencer as CV sources, which locks it into rhythm). There is also an LFO'd notch filter and a very early Ibanez digital delay mixed in"

Patch Notes #21 - Sequencing w/ DU-SEQ, 0-Coast and more

Published on Oct 1, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"This episode is exploring both our latest rubber band control on the Vintage Synth Labs VCF-74 Pulse Tips and the direction & address functionality of the DU-SEQ Eurorack sequencer.

Four voices here, clocked from the Make Noise Tempi including the DU MDLR DU-SEQ, which is sending pitch and gate to the Make Noise 0-Coast. The 0-Coast stepped random out is routed to the overtone section, while the cycling slope section is routed into the FM input. The 0-Coast is then routed out to the Vintage Synth Labs VCF-74, which has it's cutoff knobs rubber banded together, and through the Mutable Instruments Warps Parasite alt firmware ping pong delay. The DU-SEQ address is being modulated by a cycling channel 1 on Maths, from the variable output. The clock output is routed to the Malekko Varigate 4, which is sending one randomized gate pattern to the External Gate input 1 on the DU-SEQ.

The Varigate is also sending a randomized pattern to Mutable Instruments Braids, triggering the internal envelope in the Bees in the Trees alt firmware. As well, Braids is in Meta mode, modulated by the smooth random output on the Make Noise Wogglebug. The cycling channel 4 on Maths is modulating the timbre control, with a looping channel on the Intellijel Dual ADSR modulating the color control.

The pitch is modulated via the S&H circuit on the Sputnik Modular West Coast Random Source. The white noise source is routed to the S&H input, which is being triggered by a 4x clock from the Synthetic Sound Labs Modulation Orgy (which is being clocked by Tempi).

One of the fluctuating random outputs from the West Coast Random Source is routed to the attack input on the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas. The stepped random function from the Modulation Orgy is routed to the pitch. The 4 channels of LFOs on the Ornament & Crime are routed to the decay, fold, harm and spread inputs. The Wogglebug bouncing output is routed to the morph control. The BI is clocked by two source joined through the Doepfer A-151-2 Sequential Switch. One signal from the Tempi, another from the stepped random output on the Wogglebug. One channel on the Make Noise Pressure Points is toggling between the sequences every 4 steps, while another is resetting the switch on the following step.

The bass is coming from the Tiptop Audio Z-3000, with the sawtooth wave routed out through the Make Noise Optomix. A sine wave from the Make Noise DPO is routed to the other channel on the Optomix, and then out to the Z-3000 FM input. Both channels on the Optomix are being opened by the Malekko ADLFO, which is triggered via the Make Noise René (also routed from the QCV to the 1v/oct input on the Z-3000).

Everything through the Malekko Mix 4 and out, with a slight bit of dynamics processing to even out the peaks in the recording."

Dreadbox Murmux v2 - First Look

Published on Oct 1, 2016 ProckGnosis

"First look at the new Dreadbox Murmux v2, the awesome lovechild of a Dreadbox' Murmux Semi-Modular, the Erebus, and several Dreadbox modules, after a heavy night of slamming ouzo shots.

Highlights for me would be:
- The 3 independent oscillators plus a sub osc
- The combined high pass and low pass filter mixing
- The "drive" control

The Murmux was already pretty solid as a lead and bass synth, but these 3 extra features (just highlighted above), REALLY help push it up another notch for cutting leads and ballsy basses.

Though recorded the day before I went on vacation, it was edited and thrown together in between bouts of seriously needed relaxing here in Greece. Cheers!"
