EMW Noise Station 2/3: Filters & Tone Controls (LMS EE)

Published on Apr 12, 2019 Learning Modular

"This second movie on the EMW Noise Station (excerpted from the Learning Modular Eurorack Expansion course) focuses on its filter and tone control section, which allows you to impose colors-of-noise-like filtering onto other sounds. It also contains two generalized equalizer or tone control sections – a rarity in Eurorack modules:

00:00 patch overview
00:10 yellow filter
00:46 silver filter
00:50 brown filter
01:13 hi-hat filter
01:36 Tone notch filter on noise
02:10 Baxandall low/high EQ on noise
02:47 Tone notch filter on a synth patch
03:51 Baxandall low/high EQ on a synth patch

The other two movies in this series – the first one on the Noise Station’s various colors of noise, and the third one on using the Noise Station with low pass gates for percussion sounds – are part of the extended version of the Learning Modular online Eurorack Expansion course:

Korg EX-8000

via this auction

"The EX-8000 is essentially the Korg DW-8000 in a 2U rack space. The voices are comprised of 2 basic wavetable oscillators with 16 waves with an analog filter and VCA. There is a bonus digital delay on the output as well. The sound of this synth is pretty unique, if you are looking for a vintage polysynth that's a little bit different than the EX-8000 is a fun and affordable choice!

This synth is in great condition and works perfectly. It includes a power cable and the rack ears, unfortunately there are not screws for the rack ears included."

Moog Taurus 3 Pedal Synthesizer w/ Road Case

"Used in good working condition. There are a few blemishes on the metal and wood, but not bad for a synth that's meant to be stepped on. Comes with road case

A modern take on the original Taurus pedals that where famously used by Rush. The massive bass sounds that come out of this synth will definitely shake some walls!"

Mammoth 5MU System With Many Extras - Smegmar The Medicant & Sysyphus

via this auction

List of modules at the listing and captured below.

"Large-format modular system offers: 40 modules of various brands and 150 modules. In addition, there are various power-related modules, mounted in the front and the rear.

The system is 275 MU’s front face panels spaces plus 32-more in the rear. Featuring: 27 full-range multi-waveform oscillators, 12-filters, 3 discrete MIDI interfaces, and 4 sequencers. ( not including the Matrixbrute features)

It has taken over a year to purchase and assemble all of the modules: this system is completely ready to use. Most of this system is housed in solid walnut cabinetry.

There are a few modules I bought in used condition, but the rest are new purchases. The cabinetry, controllers, and cabling are all new. After assembly, this system has not been moved, exposed to smoke, or touched by anyone but me.

The entire system is in excellent condition, with a couple of VERY minor scuffs where modules have been periodically installed and/or relocated...

History: I first purchased a Moog System-55 re-issue modular. I discovered when doing a simple google search. I learned their clone of the Moog Dual Sequencer Compliment wing was not only superior to that of the Moog’s, it was nearly 1/3 the price. So from there, I bought a System 66 and A/Bd both the tonal and functionality aspects of each to discover the sounded better to my ears, had more functions, and was more stable. I sold the Moog, and steadily expanded the system it is today.

I am 100% satisfied with this system.

It would take upwards of 6 months to get all of these modules (and a couple of these you may not able to get at all) and a significant amount of time to install and wire the modules, and assemble the large manual binder.

It also took 2 full days to convert 16 of the modules into their revised versions, yet I have not added the price of the conversion kits to the list below."

Helm Elektronik - Formant Based Modular System

via Vemia

"This is a professionally built huge modular by Helm Electronics. The founder of the company set himself the task of turning the original Formant modular into a professional and super-powerful machine, and this is the result. The build quality and the sound put it in a completely different league as compared to the Formants you usually find. If you ever wanted to know what this beast can really do, this is the one to get. Massive sound and clear studio quality signal path. Envelope gate and vco cv connections are to a large extent normalised and need no patching but you can of course override and patch as you like. Hugely powerful sequencer and a great keyboard that plays well. I have gone through it and the reverb needs work - or maybe is just missing its tank. Nothing serious at all. I also have a few spares which I will include. It is also extremely beautiful."

Acid Conductor & Hōgaku Rumba

Published on May 12, 2018 wildchurch

"The 邦楽 コンダクター (Hougaku Conductor) through a Boss ME-6B is great for bass sounds - if a little unpredictable at times.

Video in 3 parts:
1. Short intro and demonstration of the Hougaku Conductor - first clean, then through the ME-6B
2. A bit of jamming along to the O2 Minipops which is feeding a clock signal to my build of Look Mum No Computer's Arduino sequencer (, which in turn is triggering squiggly noises on a PAiA 9700s (off camera here). The O2 Minipops and the PAiA have some spring reverb on them.
3. A brief multi-tracked piece using the above setup, plus some additional drums courtesy of the CM-505 plugin

* Everything's a bit rough'n'ready. I guess it would be possible to add triggers to the Conductor and have it sequenced but for now it's has to be played in real time.


Hōgaku Rumba

Published on Apr 11, 2019 wildchurch

"Me prat-arsing about with:
O2 Minipops - playing rumba pattern (clock master):
Modified Hōgaku Conductor - with 16 step sequencer
AE Modular triggered by external sequencer:
LMNC Big Button drum trigger sequencer with Wav Trigger
Various filters and envelopes
FX - spring reverb, Aria Ape 2, Nux Modcore
probably some other stuff"
