Custom Bollywood Wobble Bass Synth

Published on Aug 19, 2016 Narendra Dole

"Clips from documentary 'The Human Factor: The Untold Story of the Bombay Film Orchestras'."

This one in via Joao Heleno: "Just stumbled upon 2 videos about some indian dude who composed music for bollywood movies. the director wanted a very specific sound and they built a synth"

Two videos:

When RD Burman wanted the "Wook! Wook! Wook!" sound
The lord Speaks Promo

And the video descriptions:

"Vintage Hindi film songs are an indispensable part of South Asian popular culture. The onscreen actors who mimed through those songs, the singers, the composers, the songwriters – they are all household names, and many have attained legendary status. But who were those uncredited musicians who made up the orchestras that played on those songs and the background scores?

'The Human Factor' tells the fascinating story of the Lords, a Parsi family of pioneering musicians who collectively worked for over 60 years in Bombay’s film orchestras. But the story of the Lords is not theirs alone. It is also a crucial but obscure chapter in the history of Indian cinema."

Novation Circuit Mono Station Demo Jam

Published on Jul 27, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"A quick jam showing some of the sounds possible with Novations Circuit Mono Station.

Novation's Circuit Mono Station is a paraphonic synthesizer that is inspired by the Novation Bass Station II that contains 3 sequencer tracks and 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads. The Circuit Mono Station supports both monophonic and paraphonic modes, holds two oscillators and one modulator sequencer. With an adaptable 4x8 modulation matrix and HP/LP/BP filters with 12dB/24dB slopes, the Circuit Mono Station is great for syncing to music software and MIDI compatible hardware.

WMD Digital VCA 1/2: De-clicking Attacks (LMS Eurorack Expansion Project)

Published on Jul 27, 2017 Learning Modular

"This first of two movies on the WMD Digital VCA looks at how it can delay an input control voltage such as an envelope until the incoming audio has reached a zero crossing of its waveform. Changing amplitude while the waveform is at zero means there will be no spurious clicks from sudden attacks, while suddenly opening a VCA while a waveform is somewhere else in its cycle can result in an abrupt change and therefore a click.

WMD Digital VCA 2/2: Sample & Hold Application (LMS Eurorack Expansion Project)

Published on Jul 27, 2017

"This second of two movies on the WMD Digital VCA explores using it as an intelligent sample and hold where changes in its amplitude only occur when a gate signal goes high or low. This “quantizes” changes so they only occur at the start of a note (or optionally, at its end)."


"Dreamscape, all sounds from Easel , one pass, some Echo panning from Replicant plugin and a lot of delay reverb from the H9....get your sleepy on!!"

Erica Synths Black VC EG & Black VC EG Expander & DIY SWAMP & DIY Multimode VCF

via Erica Synths

"Erica Black Voltage Controlled Envelope Generator [video here] brings you ultimate control over envelopes in your modular synth. It’s looping lin/log ADSR envelope generator with CV control over each stage. Together with the Black VC EG Expander you get really advanced modulation source, – it outputs gates or CVs for each active stage of the envelope, so you can design really advanced patches. Also, inverted and bipolar envelope outputs are available.
NB! Black VC EG expander module can be connected only to the Black VC EG. It will not work as standalone eurorack module.

Main features for Black VC EG:
• Retriggerable ADSR envelope generator
• CV control over each stage
• CV level attenuators
• Looping function
• Lin/log envelope selection shape

Main features:

• Three random audio frequency outputs
• External audio input routed to ring modulator
• Three random CV outputs
• Clock input and output to sync the module to your modular system
• CV control over internal clock for even more extreme randomness
• Skiff-friendly design


• Set of 2 PCBs + S&H IC + mechanical parts (PCB connectors and spacer) =35EUR
• Set of 2 PCBs + S&H IC + mechanical parts (PCB connectors and spacer)+ panel= 51EUR

"Erica Synths DIY Multimode VCF [video here] is a multimode filter with a CV control over cutoff and resonance and simultaneous LP, BP and HP outputs for serious modular patches. The core of the VCF is highly stable, custom multimode VCF chip AS3320 (produced in Riga, btw).

Main features:

• Simultaneous LP, BP and HP outputs
• CV control over cutoff and resonance
• Cutoff CV attenuverter
• Volume drop compensation, as resonance is increased
• High temperature stability

Bugbrand COFilter with Volca keys

Published on Jul 27, 2017 hajimmie

"Sorry for phone mic recording. But, this sounds so vintage! Volca keys plays a simple chord progression seq (backing pattern). Volca is fed into Bugbrand Crossover filter then PTDelay. Filter 1 of COFilter is self-oscillated (sine wave generated) and sequenced a melody by SQ1 (top melody). Played on the Roland mobile cube. Volca's filter is wide open and no delay added, roland is flat as well. PTDelay sounds so vintage at some setting, boosted by COFilter.. Even though mobile cube is a small amp, this is so vintage sounding. oh you only have to listen it over here..."

Hexinverter Mutant Modular MM001 - Nailbiter [Josh Korody]

Published on Jul 27, 2017 Hexinverter Électronique

"In this Mutant Modular release, we feature an exclusive set of dark, atmospheric techno from producer and label head Josh Korody [Nailbiter]

// Nailbiter [Josh Korody] //
Recording producer, engineer and label head at Toronto-based Candle Recording, Josh Korody is also a prolific artist in his own right. Coming from a background of guitar effect chains, pedals and recording techniques, he has naturally turned to the modular synthesizer in recent years. Nailbiter is what happened when Josh began to write with the modular system. His always-danceable style has been making waves from NYC to Montreal."

Mystic Circuits Announces 0HP Vactrol LPG and VCA

Published on Jul 26, 2017 Mystic Circuits

"0HP Vactrol based circuits take advantage of an outdated part to rough the edges of your sound. Both the Vactrol Low Pass Gate and the Vactrol Voltage Controlled Amplifier modulate the amplitude of a signal under voltage control, but the VCA does so with minimal alteration to the sound whereas the LPG filters the sound to give it some extra oomph.

Both modules are now available at our website:
