Arturia MatrixBrute: 10 Things You May Not Know

Published on Jul 3, 2019 Noisegate

"The Arturia MatrixBrute has been out for a little while now, but it remains one of the best deals available for serious synth enthusiasts.

If you’re just buying your first synth there are certainly more affordable and beginner friendly options out there, but if you consider yourself more of a connoisseur and want something that stands out from the crowd, the MatrixBrute is definitely worth a look.

It’s tough to think of a more powerful monophonic synth than the MatrixBrute, and you could probably spend the rest of your life learning new features and functions so to save you some time I thought we’d go through ten things you may not know about the Arturia MatrixBrute."

AI010 Switching Attenuator Eurorack Module Build Guide

Published on Jul 3, 2019 AI Synthesis

"The AI010 Eurorack Attenuator is a 2hp dual passive attenuator with switched jacks that allow the attenuator to also work as a multuple.

The top-most input is normalled to the second attenuator knob and the third attenuator input.

Control voltage is a wonderful way to add expression to a modular patch, and controlling that control voltage is crucial to being able to dial in that expression.

A passive eurorack attenuator is a simple un-powered circuit using only resistive elements (usually a potentiometer) to reduce voltage. Rotating the potentiometer will change the output from 0V to 100% of the input without distorting the shape of the incoming voltage. These are simple and primitive, but effective and important methods of controlling voltage, be it the input to a Filter, or the Linear Frequency Modulation input on an Oscillator."

Selecting Plonk Presets With Steppy Walkthrough Tutorial

Published on Jul 3, 2019 Intellijel

"Plonk's 'Drum Kit' presets take advantage of using preset selection as a MOD destination to set up 4-piece virtual drum kits. Steppy's 4 sequencer tracks are a great way to trigger presets to create fun drum grooves from a single Plonk. A mixer is required to blend the gate signals before sending them to the MOD input, so Quad VCA and Quadratt work perfectly for this. Then you can set the input level of each track to select your desired preset.Taking advantage of Plonk's Probability, Loopy, Per Track Length, Swing, and other features can make this even more fun!"

Shakmat Four Bricks Rook Sequencer With Future Retro Transient Plus

Published on Jul 3, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Shakmat Modular's Four Bricks Rook is a fast to program sequencer for up to four drums with interesting editing options. In this video we used it to sequence Future Retro's Transient Plus which is a powerful drum synthesizer module with built in presets and randomization. The Transient Plus has analog modulation and synthesis algorithms even though it is a digital module.

The other drums used were the Befaco Kickall, WMD Crucible and Tiptop SD 808 snare. We used the Future Retro Trax sequencer to program the Erica Synths Bassline synth module. Effects and mixing are done with Erica Synths modules and the Noise Engineering Kith Ruina is dirtying up the snare drum.
