Quick Tip: Rhythmic Pattern With A Eurorack Sequential Switch Tutorial

Published on Mar 5, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"This quick tip explains how to make a rhythmic pattern with a eurorack modular sequential switch.

Modules you will need:
- a sequential switch
- a clock (for clocked sequential switches) or an LFO or sequencer (for voltage controlled sequential switches)
- multiple sound sources

The patch:
- sound sources to inputs of sequential switch
- either sequencer to voltage control input of sequential switch
- or clock to clock input of sequential switch
- sequential switch output is your rhythmic pattern.

You can vary your pattern by modulating or manually tweaking the input sounds, or changing the order they are plugged into the switch in. You can leave inputs of the switch with nothing plugged in if you want spaces in your pattern. If you are using a voltage controlled switch like in the video change your sequencer pattern to change your rhythm pattern.

You could even experiment with making melodies this way by patching multiple pitched sound sources into the switch."

What are some pitfalls on this build?
How does it sound with the re-issue X-Vive chips?

Synclavier Go! and Synclavier Pocket! for iOS Released

You can find some demos in the archives. The press release:

NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA: having turned heads and opened ears with a show-stopping showcase at The 2019 NAMM Show in Southern California, January 24-27, newly-formed Synclavier Digital is proud to announce availability of Synclavier Go! and Synclavier Pocket! — placing a re-creation of the seminal Synclavier® II Digital Synthesizer’s sound engine from which they take their names into the respective hands of iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch owners as awe-inspiring iOS apps, allowing all the famed FM (Frequency Modulation) and Additive (harmonic) synthesis capabilities to be brought forward forty years for all to musically marvel, at a fraction of the original’s prohibitive pricing thanks to today’s technology, while also effectively emulating the iconic instrument’s intuitive panels of easy-to-touch red backlit buttons and iconic control knob in easy-to-use user interfaces — as of March 5…

Put it this way: while the still-highly-coveted brand of Synclavier® — synonymous with high-end audio production technology that blazed a trail through the Seventies and Eighties before stalling in the Nineties — is in the midst of a galactic reboot, thanks to Nova Scotia-registered Canadian Corporation Synclavier Digital, established in 2018 to re-create a modern iOS-based version of the Synclavier® Digital Audio System, Synclavier Go!, its inaugural iPad offering, is far from being a clone, however... to all intents and purposes, it is a Synclavier®!

So how, exactly, did yesteryear’s trailblazing technology that commanded a princely six-figure sum end up available on Apple’s pocket-friendly iOS platform in true needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few style? Simply speaking, when New England Digital (NED) went bankrupt in the Nineties, technology finally having caught up with the cutting-edge company concerned, co-founder Cameron Jones — co-inventor of the Synclavier® — bought the intellectual propriety rights to the trailblazing series of synthesizers and digital audio systems sharing the notable name.

Tryout:- 208 Toolbox and Disting SD delay

Published on Mar 5, 2019

"Quick demo of my continuing exploration of the 208 Toolbox, this time linked in to a test run of the new SD card delay in Disting Mk 4

Toolbox combines VCs from the pulser, envelope and sequencer to create a syncopated, accented sequenced modulating the Complex Oscillator and its amplitude. Mod oscillator is used for a simple lead voice, gated using pressure out from the 218.

The pulser is taken out, divided and used as a master clock for Disting set to algorithm K6.

I think it works pretty well.

Note - you do need a fast SD card for this to work properly. Needs to write around 90 Mb/sec. Anything lower won't cut it. I had to upgrade my card - hence the test run."

Recovery Effects Pearl Low End Vintage Fuzz Eurorack Demo

Published on Mar 5, 2019 recoverysounds

"Demo of the Pearl Low End Vintage Fuzz Eurorack module from Recovery Effects."

Some info on the pedal version as the eurorack module isn't listed on the Recovery Effects website yet:

"The Pearl sinks its teeth into the low end and doesn’t let go. Its modified vintage circuit delivers heavy bass fuzz tone with versatile controls to work with your music. This pedal was created for bass, but you can also plug your guitar into it to make your low-end dreams come true!

At the heart of the pedal is an all-analog silicon design that sounds great with any pickup type. We use hand-picked, new-old-stock “oil can” BC109 transistors that add a classic, vintage tone to this modern fuzz. The user interface includes a range of controls including intensity, tonality, compression, output level, and a high/low switch that affects the amount of bottom end. The Pearl is a compact, simple to use, player-friendly pedal with a monster, low-end tone. In short, it is a force to be reckoned with.

Hand-made in Seattle, WA. The Pearl operates on a standard 'Boss' style 9vdc power supply, but can also run at 18vdc for additional headroom. True bypass switching. Includes a limited lifetime warranty."

MOOG MEMORYMOOG - FM Bells & Envelopes | Ambient Soundscape 【SYNTH DEMO】

"Moog Memorymoog analog synthesizer demo, featuring FM bells & envelope tweaking to create an experimental ambient soundscape.

The Moog Memorymoog allows for FM modulation via Oscillator 3, which can create some incredible textures and tones. The Memorymoog's quick envelopes also allows for snappy and plucky sounds to be created, or long smooth decays.

This experimental ambient soundscape and synth demo aims to showcase the envelopes and some FM sounds from the Moog Memorymoog."
