VGM #141: Overworld (Super Mario World) Ft. Josiah Everhart

Published on Jun 12, 2018 Ace Waters

"It's been a little while. Feels good to be back at it. Been quietly working on this arrangement for a while now. Josiah came over to record guitar for it like two months ago, but he came up with this gnarly claw pattern guitar part that changed the whole arrangement. So, after a a couple of months and some tough personal mental battles with depression, its finally here! Enjoy."

Touch for Virus - iPad Editor for the Access Virus TI Line of Synths

iTunes: Touch for Virus - M. Lierop

"TOUCH for VIRUS is the first dedicated patch editor for Virus TI synthesizers on iPad
It has been designed for TI Snow, but it works for other models too (Desktop, Polar etc.).

- Create patches on VIRUS TI synthesizers with iPad
- Dedicated knobs and sliders for all parameters*
- No computer or other software needed

* excluding. custom arp pattern, Input effect, vocoder and atomizer parameters)

- Save & reload created patches
- Organize your patches in collections and categories
- Load patches partially, based on (de)selected ‘sections’

The roughly 350 parameters of a patch are split in 7 sections:
- Save and load presets for each section.
- Create new patches in seconds by choosing different combinations of section presets
- Sections: Oscillators / Filter & Amplifier / Modulation / Controller / Arpeggiator / Effects / Ambiance

- Virus TI needs to be set to 'Single'-mode.
- USB to MIDI interface is needed
- TOUCH for VIRUS also supports MIDI over Bluetooth
- Because of limitations of the Virus TI, it's USB port cannot be connected to iPad directly."

Percussa SSP Update: First SSPs shipped and Stretch Goal Survey Results

Follow-up to this post.

"Hi everyone,

Last week was special moment for us: we shipped the first SSPs to our Kickstarter backers! We’ll be shipping all the other Kickstarter pledges next week, after which we’ll start shipping the pre-orders.
Below you can see photos of our building process the past week as well as a sneak peak of the SSP packaging.

Click here to see all photos.

Stretch Goal Survey Results

As part of our third Kickstarter stretch goal, our backers were recently invited in participating in a synth module voting which consisted of selecting 3 advanced and 2 simple modules. The following modules were selected and will be added as internal modules on the SSP, besides the 15 other modules:

Advanced Modules

Live Input Granular Processor with Arbitrary Morphable Window (from WAV) support
Looper (reel to reel style, record into it using trigger / CV signals etc)
Microtuning quantizer with SCALA support

Simple Modules

Env follower
Generic Arpeggiator (takes cv signal and will “arpeggiate” it)


If you'd like to pre-order an SSP, please contact us ASAP to avoid being on a waiting list.

Befaco - Muxlicer (bi-directional switch, sequencer, advance pattern generator and more!)

Published on Jun 12, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Timing index below so you can skip through the patches and sections to check out all the functions.

Here's the powerful and fun to use Muxlicer from Befaco. It's a module that's capable of sequencing CV, advance gate patterns with ratchets/bursts/re-triggers, bi-directional sequential switching where one input goes to several outputs or several inputs go to one output. There's internal clocking and tap tempo, external clock divisions/multiplications and a clock out with independent div./mult. too. It can be a real hub of a patch, self patched for more complex functions and it can be ran by clock or CV addressed moving through the stages. It can play/stop/reset or even one shot play through. One shot play through with additional external slew limiting (I'm using Rampage here) can create some unique 8 stages envelopes too.

Be like the Edge: EuroDDL, Eventide's first eurorack module reviewed

Published on Jun 12, 2018 loopop

You can find previous posts featuring the EuroDDL here.

"In case (second pun in as many sentences) you're curious, the case in the video is by Through-U -

Delay is one of the most popular audio effects, and understandably so. In this clip I review EuroDDL, as well as use its various CV interfaces to create a chorus/flange effects, a delayed harmonizer, apply a PWM-like effect to a synth that doesn't have that feature, loop drums and, since there's a built in filter, create percussive Karplus-Strong sounds.

While the concept of delay is simple – recording a snippet of sound and playing it back continuously, done at different delay times – delay can have a dramatic effect on your sound. Timed to the tempo of a song, delay can take a simple riff and turn it into a rich and dynamic soundscape, as shown repeatedly (if you don't mind the pun…) by U2's the Edge. Millisecond delay times can multiply your sound with a chorus or flange effect, and longer delays behave like a looper.

Eventide has a prolific effects history, and EuroDDL is their first Eurorack format module. EuroDDL's default sample rate is 192khz and can handle delay times anywhere from 0.11ms to 10 seconds at that rate. The sample rate can be adjusted in 16 steps down to a lo-fi 12khz, respectively bringing delay times up to 160 seconds.

Aside from "regular" delay, EuroDDL contains an analog low pass filter that can be applied to the feedback loop, a 20db drive toggle on the input, as well as reverse and infinite looping toggle buttons. Phase inversion is also available and can make a difference with millisecond long delay times.

True to Eurorack form, EuroDDL is ready, willing and able to accept and send CV. Five CV inputs let you modulate delay times, sample rate, feedback, dry/wet mix and the low pass filter cutoff. Additional configurable trigger or gate inputs let you use CV to toggle the infinite loop, reverse and "kill" features (the dramatically named "kill" feature keeps the dry and wet feeds going but doesn't send any new dry audio into the feedback loop). Tempo can be synced via a clock input, and sent out as well thru the clock output.

Finally, send and return jacks let you insert external effects into the feedback loop, as I show in the "delayed harmonizer" example.

To top it off, the onboard display is extremely useful in establishing timing, tempo and visualizing the impact of CV modulation. The module is fairly straightforward an a one-pager manual makes understanding the lay of the land quick and easy.

PROS: The combination of on-board controls, built in filter and openness to CV modulation makes EuroDDL capable of creating quite adventurous sounds, and a great Eurorack partner to bring delay to your system.
CONS: If it wasn't for Eventide's other work there probably wouldn't be a "cons" here… EuroDDL is a strong contender in the Eurorack delay market - but their other work leaves me wishing more of it was implemented here. EuroDDL is priced similarly to Eventide's own TimeFactor delay effect pedal – and while the latter isn't in the Eurorack format nor does it have any of the CV interfaces (though it does have an expression pedal input and MIDI controls), TimeFactor does have richer sound design options and the ability to store and recall presets."
