flightofharmony INM E Simple Self-Patch Demos #2 & #3


"Another four-cable self-patch example of the eurorack Infernal Noise Machine. This one starts in a higher range like static or white noise. The second half shows how the INM is made of "sweet spots", where small control changes greatly alter the sound. The INM-E is on my workbench in a circuit board holder.

This video was recorded while I was still trying to figure out the best recording settings in OBS and the motion is a bit choppy, but the sound is in sync and accurate.

Come check out the INM-E Kickstarter campaign!

(Module shown is a prototype.)"

Infernal Noise Machine Simple Self-Patch Demo #3


"A two-cable self-patch example of the eurorack Infernal Noise Machine. This patch creates a pseudo-delay/reverb effect that is very apparent on headphones. Two more cables are added later for AR envelope

Come check out the INM-E Kickstarter campaign!

Additional posts here Q165 Prototype Module Overview


"Check out what's included with our new Q165 Prototype Module Kit. Available for order here:"

The Q165 Prototype module gives the electronics experimenter a convenient way to implement custom circuitry for their 5U Moog-panel-format synthesizer.

The panel provides placement for knobs, jacks, switches and LEDs. White blocks provide space to write labels using a fine-point ink marker.

The prototype board provides center and side power rails, and enough space for 4-6 integrated circuits - typically op-amps. The pad-per-hole array accepts most common thru-hole components and is arranged like a typical proto board and solderless breadboard, but with additional holes on the sides to accept MTA connectors. The power entry section is laid out for +15V and -15V entry filters along with +5V for digital circuits.

A variety of parts are provided in the kit including PCB mounting spacers, MTA connectors for power, jacks and pots, along with a variety of common resistors, capacitors, transistors and diodes. Op-amp and an OTA ICs are also provided.

The user must supply the circuit design, tools, additional electronic components, and of course the skills.

The Q165 module accepts a standardized 6-pin MTA power connection.

Modular Sequencer is a Max for Live Step Sequencer for Ableton Live 10.
The Modular Sequencer is a very flexible Sequencer, where you can patch every module with any other.

You can create Sequences from concrete & repetitive to totally endless & random.
The eight Sequencers can run in Sync or every single Sequencer can with it's own speed. Four of the eight sequencers are Trigger Sequencers to Trigger or to switch actions. The other four Sequencers can send out Values and Triggers (thru the Threshold)

The Value Sequencers can be assigned free to control the:
• Notes
• Velocity
• Ocatve
• Lenght.
of every of the four Outputs.

On every Output you'll find a Scale Correction, where you are able to create Sequences that always fit into the selected Scale or you can also learn Scales from the MIDI Input.

It also works Hand in Hand with the Chord-O-Mat 3.1 Device (the Update will be available soon) That means the Sequencer can be set up that it will have always the same Scale like Chord-O-Mat. If you change the Scale in Chord-O-Mat the Sequencer will select the same scale & vice versa.

It's also possible, that an Output of the Sequencer can follow the Chordprogression of Chord-O-Mat.

features of modular sequencer

• All Trigger Signals can be routed free from every Output to every Input thru the Patch-chords.
• create Polyphonic Sequences
• 4 internal Outputs where you can assign the Sequencers to the Note, Velocity, Octave & Length
• Scale Correction in every of the four Outputs
• Scaleable GUI from 80% to 140%
• Modulation Section, where you have up to 8 Modulators to invert a signal, probability & filter Triggersteps,
• 4 locical operators, where you can combine the Value of two sequences."

Orbital | How I Play Live

DJ Mag

We go behind the scenes with Orbital to find out how their live show works.

Made up of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, Orbital played Inner City Electronic Festival in March, just prior to the UK's COVID-19 lockdown. We caught up with the seminal UK rave duo to talk through how they play live.

Baseck Plays: Roland TR-6S

Perfect Circuit

"@baseck shows us that the size of the Roland TR-6S is no representation of its booming sound. The TR-6S is the latest drum machine from Roland that carries the torch which has been burning bright for decades now.

This is a 6 channel drum machine with an FM sound engine, an expansive preset sample library, and detailed circuit models of the Roland TR-808, TR-909, TR-606, TR-707, and more. This is undoubtedly a powerful addition to Roland's hardware lineage that is sure to bring unexpected movement to your live sets.

Woggle Science!! Frequency to Voltage


Looking for patch ideas to try with Richter Wogglebug's audio outputs? Wondering what the module's "Influence" input does? You've come to the right place! This video explores using the ever-experimental Wogglebug as a crude frequency-to-voltage device as it attempts to track both an oscillator and an audio recording.

Grendel - RA-99 Grenadier

via this auction

The Grenadier RA-99 is the successor of the Grenadier RA-9, a semi-modular analog synthesizer with variable waveform VCO, triple resonant filter (2x bandpass and 1x lowpass), sub oscillator and pink noise and audio input for external signals. Midi is still omitted and the control is done via CV/Gate.

Compared to the RA-9, the Grenadier RA-99 is enhanced by the following features:

14 instead of 10 parameters for sound control
20 instead of 14 Patchpoints
The switchable oscillator (square/triangle) was replaced by a variable waveform oscillator (trapezoid)
Pink noise source
Instead of a single decay envelope there is now a variable AR or two decay envelopes (depending on the settings)
The filter was changed from 3x bandpass to 2x bandpass and once lowpass
The oscillator can now be controlled with 1v/oct (x2), 5V/oct, 15V/oct
The housing is no longer made of coated steel but of extruded aluminium
Therefore the sequencer and the mini-keyboard had to give way

How to put a vocal through the EMS Synthi AKS - VCS3 - filter vocal, & internal spring reverb.

Andy Whitmore
How to put a vocal through the EMS Synthi AKS - VCS3 - filter vocal, & internal spring reverb.

I find that every-time I do this job - I forget one of the patch setups. I have made this video to remind myself & others how to wire up the Synthi AKS so that it works perfectly & quickly.

The sound is unbeatable - it adds character to a vocal - buy one quick - they are worth the money.
