"AJH Synth V SHAPE REVIEW - Eurorack Synth DEMO PATCHES. 10HP Wave Twist Distortion Wavefolder? Modular Synth Review (2018) Index Below

Let's test the AJH Synth V SHAPE - Wave Twist & Distort eurorack module.
- What do we have here in only 10Hps?
- Did we find the ghost in the machine?
- Which type of waveforms can the V SHAPE skew, wobble, distort and wavefold?
- Analogue or Digital?
- Does it sound good? And is that two separate modules into one?
- We do play with it through a few different patches, all in the video.

AJH Synth V SHAPE -Wave Twist & Distort - REVIEW INDEX:

00:00 INTRODUCTION - Time to shape up!
Some Patch Previews
Module Introduction
Physical Specs
Front Panel Layout and Features Quick Overview
'Quick Play' V Shape Overview with sound over a SAW Signal

- Ghost in the machine!
- Soft and Hard Clipping
- Separate outputs and Cascaded Processing.

08:24 What type of signals can the V Shape's SHAPE unit process?
We send a bunch of different waveforms to the V Shape SHAPE INPUT and of course, we monitor the output.

14:30 More about the Distortion unit in the V Shape
- Distortion CV, DCV Offset and Unity Gain Output

16:07 More details about the TWIST unit.
Including Non-Linear Distortion... BONUS DISTORTION?

Following Patches have further description in the Video.
20:49 Let's start with some Patches
A Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms Double Helix Oscillator's based bass patch (Saw + Sine) sent through the V Shape TWIST section

21:47 We add a Tonestart 2600 Synth lead part to the previous Bass/Beat patch.
The Bass voice passes throught the V Shape SHAPE unit
The Tonestar Synth Voice goes through the Distortion unit

23:45 V Shape on the Hexinverter Mutant Bassdrum Kick
Cascaded with Input at the SHAPE unit, through to the Distortion unit then OUT

26:31 V Shape on the Hexinverter Mutant Snare
Cascaded with Input at the SHAPE unit, through to the Distortion unit then OUT

28:10 Kick, Snare and Hats MONO MIX into V Shape Input
This time we use both Outputs.
- Shape Output goes mono into the AJH Synth Finaliser R-EQ (Stereo Out to DAW)
- Distortion Output goes straight to DAW

30:28 Birdkids Bateleur sent through the V Shape and the Finaliser R-EQ for a strange type of sound. Some will hate it some will think it's funny :) - It's just a sound being processed :)

31:12 Anohter Patch making use of both Shape and Distorion unit as individual processing channels
- Double Helix through SHAPE Unit (Bass)
- Tonestar 2600 through Distortion Unit (Lead)
Tone variations playing around with V-Shape
controls and Input Signal Amplitude (Non Linear Distortion)

34:26 Conclusion with some final considerations on the V Shape

37:57 My Problem

39:06 THE END :)"
