AJH Synth WAVE SWARM REVIEW. Will it give you BIGGER ANIMATED SOUNDS?

"AJH Synth WAVE SWARM REVIEW - Eurorack DEMO PATCHES. AJH Wave Animators Modular Synth Review (2018). Do your patches sound big enough? Index Below

IN THIS EURORACK MODULAR SYNTH REVIEW
We take the AJH Synth Wave Swarm - Dual 6 Stage Wave Animators for a spin.
- Are front panel layout and physical controls good in use?
- We send different types of signals to its inputs and check out the animated sound at the outputs.
- Does it sound fat?
- Can it help you create ‘bigger’ sounds?

AJH Synth Wave Swarm - Wave Animators - REVIEW INDEX

00:00 INTRODUCTION
Module Introduction
Some Patch Preview
FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE THE MODULE!!!
Interface Considerations
INs and OUTs
Channels VCOs (LFOs)

04:50 A QUICK ‘SOUND EXAMPLE’
A quick ‘sound example’ before we get into more detailed stuff
- SAW to Input A
- Dry Level
- 6 VCOs movement
- Soft Clipping
- Input A normalised to Channel B
- Channel B VCOs
- OUT A, OUT B, OUT A+B…

08:54 ANIMATORS?
How does the module ‘move’, animate
the sound… 12 LFOs ?!?!
- 6 LFOs per Voice
- 12 LFOs combined
- 12 Level Control Knobs


10:06 LFOs Speed
- Faster to Slowest

LET’S START WITH EXAMPLES
11:36 SINE at INPUT [Single Mono out]
- OUT A
- DRY
- Animation
- A+B OUTPUT & 12 Animators

13:28 SINE at INPUT [Dual Mono Out Panned L/R]
- OUTs Panned L/R (at mixer)
- 6 Animators Per Channel
- Adding variation (phase cancellation - Stereo Image)

16:12 TRIANGLE at INPUT [Single Mono out]
- Dry Level, Soft Clipping
- Animators
- A + B summed

17:39 TRIANGLE at INPUT [Dual Mono Out Panned L/R]
- Soft Clipping
- 6 Animators Per Channel

19:16 MULTI WAVE MIX at INPUT [Mono Out]
- A mix of Sine + Triangle + Saw + Sub Pulse to Input
- OUT A
- A + B Output (6 + 6 Animators)

21:40 MULTI WAVE MIX at INPUT [Dual Mono Outs - Panning Outs L/R]
- I love this sound!

22:54 LET’S MIX THINGS UP A BIT
- Multi-Wave Mix at Input A
- Mono OUT A to DAW
- Mono OUT B to AJH Synth Gemini 2412
From Gemini, Mono IN to AJH Synth FINALISER R-EQ
Finaliser L/R Stereo Reverb/Delay OUT to DAW

26:44 SWARM OUTPUTS to INTELLIJEL PLANAR INPUTS (Joystick Time!)
- The original Multi Wave Mix Signal to one of the
inputs on the Planar
- SWARM Outputs A, B, A+B to the other three individual Inputs on the Planar
- Use Planar (or any other crossfader/mixer) module to
play around with the mix of these four audio signals
- Planar Mono Out to DAW
- Buffered Planar Mono Out to Gemini 2412… to Finaliser R-EQ (Delay / Reverb)


32:21 SENDING A DIFFERENT PITCH TO EACH SWARM INPUT
- Two MFB OSC-03 oscillators, each to one of the Swarm Input.
- Oscillators tuned one octave apart
- OUT A and B Panned L and R respectively
- OUT A+B Mono (no Panning)
- Each signal (1 Octave apart) is animated by 6 Animators

35:07 A DIFFERENT BASIC WAVE TO EACH CHANNEL
- Sine to Input A [OUT A Panned Left]
- Saw to Input B [OUT B Panned Right]
- OUT A+B Mono (No Pan)

36:51 SAME PATCH AS BEFORE BUT JUST LOW FREQ DRONING
- Low-Frequency Signal from Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms - Double Helix Oscillator
- Play around with Animators and Double Helix Frequency Knob

38:53 WHAT ABOUT BEATS
- A few notes about sending Beats to the inputs
- Simple beat

41:40 A SINE THAN A MORE MODULATED INPUT SIGNAL

43:38 CONCLUSION PART 1
- When you can go from a simple Triangle…
… send A and B to a Mixer L/R Channels…
… and A+B to, in this case, Gemini 2412 and Finaliser R-EQ…
… let the Patch play :)

48:57 CONCLUSION PART 2
- Final thoughts"
