Programmable Logic With Plog by intellijel

Published on Oct 2, 2017 intellijel

"In this video we take a look at how Plog works along with some ways that it can be used.

Plog is a voltage controlled logic and tap clock module in 8HP

The Plog module comprises two programmable logic sections (select one of six different 3 input boolean logic types) as well as a toggle flipflop and data flipflop block. all four sections are linked together via specially planned normals.


Dual 3-input logic blocks. input z is normalled to input y and y to x in order to allow 2-input and 1-input logic modes.
Bi-polar voltage control of the logic types for section a and b with dedicated attenuators (positive voltages move the type forward, negative in reverse) inputs x and y from logic block a normalled to inputs x and y of logic block B. Output B normalled to input of the toggle flipflop via jumpered normal (can be removed) on back of pcb.
Toggle flipflop has dedicated pushbutton for manual triggering of toggle state -if you hold the trigger button for about 1 second it will disable the trigger input jack and become a simple tap clock.
Output of t flipflop is normalled to clk input of d flipflop (inverse output of dflipflop also internally normalled to d input) so that by default the d section also acts as a toggle. this allows /2 and /4 clock dividing.
You can save or load the logic section as a preset for easy recall of patches.
Module can be run at audio rates in order to generate interesting digital sounds.

This module was primarily designed as an interesting tool to be used with sequencers. you can derive complex rhythmic sequences from basic sparse sources (e.g. from a simple gate sequence or clock). by adding vc control of the logic types via some kind of cv source like a triggered envelope, lfo or sequencer you produce even more complex results.

Plog can also be used in many other creative applications including making interesting timbres and for self generating patches."

"The Race" with Nina, Mia, and Roland Synthesizers

Published on Oct 1, 2017 Machiwoomiapoo

"'The Race' with Nina, Mia, Machi, and Sam
This song is a collaboration between my entire family. First I programmed the TR-808 drum pattern. Next I programmed the Juno 106 Bass Line via the Fantom G8 which is plugged into the MSQ-700 via MIDI. On MINI channel 2, I programmed the Juno 60 Arp pattern. Then I recorded the lead parts with the Jupiter 8 in Dual Mode on patch 12. The Jupiter 8 is plugged into the Eventide Space for some extra "Blackhole" feel. Next I had Nina sing into the VT-3. She wrote all the lyrics! I helped her with some of the melody parts. Mia, via the Wampa, played the flute part at the end of the tune. Machi played Ms. Powers. Mia and Nina played the runners. And I played the coach. It was nice to get out into the sun on this beautiful Sunday afternoon at the track. Thanks for watching! Please subscribe, share, and leave feedback. I love to hear from you. Nina will be posting this to her YouTube channel as well: awesomenina360
Please go check it out there and subscribe to her channel which has some cute Animal Jam stories and game strategies. :) Take care and have a wonderful week! Sam from machiwoomiapoo."

Roland boutique SH-01A, SE-02, TR-08 vs Modular synth

Published on Oct 2, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Since I have the SE-02, SH-01a and TR-08 inb the studio I just wanted to test how they interact with my modular, I was especially curious about the SH-01A which has CV/Gate outputs.

Brief sync setup patch notes:

Master clock is the TR-08, it sends MIDI out to the intellijel rack, and passes clock into the modular. Also on MIDI trhu from the modular case i have clock being sent on to the SE-02 which is set to slave/ext midi mode.

The SH-01a is sequencing the MI braids over its CV gate outputs, while taking an external MIDI clock from the intellijel uMIDI 1U interface. So it plays both its own meldody, plus the MI braids one (which is internally modulated to only play random notes from the original sequence).

Also the Qu-bit electronics octone gets it clock from theTR_08 via the uMIDI interface, and that sequences the MI rings which also is modulated by some LFOs in the rack.

All in all, they seem to interface pretty well.. and this could be a super cool live rig for those minimal sounds.

My current eurorack for reference:

I hope you will enjoy it!

BoOoM! / BuRG"
