Video Manual: Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion Processor

Learning Modular

"This is a video manual I created with the help of Synthesis Technology for their new E520 stereo Eurorack-format Hyperion Processor. It features both updates of a number of classic effects, as well as new frequency and time domain processing tricks, all while keeping a very flat menu with a small number of powerful parameters – most of which have dedicated knobs and voltage control. Below is an index to the features:

00:00 demo of a few of the Presets
00:40 overview
01:12 front panel controls & connections
01:51 audio connections
02:33 Auxiliary output
02:46 menu & navigation overview
03:01 changing Algorithms
03:40 getting back to the Main menu
04:00 editing an Algorithm
04:58 Bypass to unprocessed input
05:07 Feedback & Wet/Dry mix
06:02 live controls
06:35 loading & editing algorithm-specific presets (Page 3)
07:38 external voltage control
08:35 Tap Tempo
09:40 Page 2 settings
10:36 internal LFOs
11:22 High Pass and Low Pass Filters
11:55 saving a Preset
12:46 Top menu
13:04 module-wide Patches
13:32 Preferences (including display options, Input/Output Levels, and Feedback Limiter)
15:17 SD card “whole module” save & load
15:23 UI colors
15:48 Utilities (scope, tuner, and more)
16:07 Dual Mono algorithm
16:15 conclusion

*Note that this video was shot using pre-production hardware and firmware (v.13 and .14). It was very close to the final version both, so shipping units should behave the same (with the exception that I set the display background color from blue to black to make it easier to read on video). Firmware updates beyond version 1.0 will of course introduce changes not covered in this video.
