Eurorack "West Coast" Synth Voice Patch Breakdown / Tutorial

video upload by Transduction Signal

"This simple patch is a synth voice that is inspired by "West Coast" synthesizers like Buchla and Serge modulars from the 1960s and 70s. This patch also has a signal flow similar to the Make Noise 0-Coast. The basic idea behind the patch is to take a simple waveform and fold it to add harmonics, then a lowpass gate is used to control the dynamics of the sound.

Modules we used:
- AJH MiniMod Vintage Transistor Core VCO
- Random Source Serge Wave Multipliers
- Erica Synths Black Dual ASR EG
- Erica Synths Black LPG
- Korg SQ-1 Sequencer

The Patch:

- Audio
- VCO triangle or sine wave into the wave-folder audio input
- wave-folder audio out to the lowpass gate audio input
- the lowpass gate's audio out is the final output sound

- Control
- 1v/oct from sequencer or keyboard to osc 1v/oct input
- sequencer gate out to gate in on envelope generator
- envelope generator out to wave-folder CV input
- sequencer gate out to LPG "ping" input

Extra things to try out:
- the gate length of your sequencer will affect how plucky the sound is, so try adjusting it
- different wave-folders will have different sounds so try out a few if you have them
- if your wave-folder doesn't have a CV fold amount control you can use a VCA before the wave-folder and control that with the envelope
- if you don't have a lowpass gate you can try this patch out with just a filter or VCA after the wave-folder with an envelope opening it
- try other waveforms besides triangle and sine into the wave-folder
- try running more than one oscillator into the wave-folder and see how the multiple oscillators interact

Let us know what you think of this patch and what similar patches you use. We are going to publish more tutorials and other videos here and on our Instagram and TikTok, let us know what you want to see.

Xaoc Devices Minsk & Zagrzeb Eurorack Modules

SUPERBOOTH video here

Press release:

Xaoc Devices Zagrzeb & Mińsk – two faces of stereo processing

Are you ready for some stereo action? Xaoc Devices continues exploring the stereo processing realm with two new modules unveiled at this year’s Superbooth.

Zagrzeb is a stereo multimode 4-pole (24dB/oct) state variable voltage-controlled filter (SV VCF). It offers five distinct frequency responses, three of which are available simultaneously. Spread control allows for animation of the stereo image by moving the left and right filter cutoff frequencies in opposite directions. Zagrzeb is designed to sound smooth and clean unless it is overdriven with a hot signal— however, it does not lack character! We believe it will be appreciated by fans of old Japanese synthesizers, but bear in mind that Zagrzeb is not a clone of any existing design. The four-pole state variable structure is a new development and offers unique sonic characteristics. While Zagrzeb is designed for filtering stereo signals (e.g. samples or stereo oscillators like Xaoc Devices Odessa), it can easily handle mono signals and is capable of creating a faux stereo pair thanks to a special phase shifting network at the input.

– Stereo, four-pole state variable filter
– Five frequency responses, three available simultaneously
– 24dB/oct low pass and 24dB/oct high pass filtering
– 3 band pass filter slope configurations
– Voltage controlled Spread control for animating the stereo image
– No LF drop at high resonance
– Mono to stereo image effect
– 8hp, skiff friendly
– Current draw: +70mA/–60mA
– Reverse power protection

Mińsk is a stereo image processor. It is a hybrid tool that combines digital and analog processing to facilitate advanced mid/side (M/S) manipulation of a stereo signal pair. It allows for separate treatment of the mid and side components, which affects the depth and width of the auditory scene. Mińsk offers both manual and voltage control of the stereo width, as well as two dimension effects for enhancing the existing stereo image or creating a faux stereo image based on the stereo or mono input source. Mińsk is especially handy during the preparation of a vinyl release or before a club concert, because it can eliminate out-of-phase low-end frequencies (high pass filter at 300Hz with the filter slope 12dB/oct, 50Hz with the filter slope 24dB/oct).

– Stereo image manipulation tool
– Mid/Side processing
– Mono to faux stereo conversion
– Stereo dimension enhancement
– Manual and CV stereo width control
– Low cut on side component
– Visual stereo image indicator
– 6hp, skiff friendly
– Current draw: +140mA/–40mA
– Reverse power protection

Zagrzeb: 260 EUR MSRP, available in October 2021
Mińsk: 190 EUR MSRP, available in October 2021

Plinky: #4 patch from scratch

"Another patch from scratch with plinky.
The 3d printing case made by my friends :
is in final stage, i hope soon, you will print your own ;)

Plinky patch is aboute using the delay and lfo modulated by presur for shapping sound.

Thank you for watching.
My name is Meska of the statik collective . I've been making mostly "dark and expérimental" music for more than ten years now, i'v learn so much online, now it's time for me to share my knoledge, my exploration and this channel is a place to talk about the tools, sound design and techniques to make music with.

"Super rare Drumfire 2000.
2 voice 2 oscillator drum synthesizer with trigger inputs and front panel control over all parameters.

This little drum machine gives 808's a run for their money and has vintage mojo to boot.

This unit has been fully serviced, all capacitors both electrolytic and tantalum replaced. All pots cleaned to ensure years of playability.

There is some noise bleed thru the presets but this is easily remedied by turning down the presets."

Reaktor 6 Subharmonic Synthesizer (Building a Moog Subharmonicon Knockoff) | Simon Hutchinson

video upload by Simon Hutchinson

"Building a subharmonic synthesizer in Native Instruments' Reaktor 6 Primary inspired by instruments like the Mixtur-Trautonium and Moog Subharmonicon.

Subharmonics are frequencies that are whole-number divisions of a given frequency (in contrast to harmonics, which are whole number multiples of a frequency). While harmonics naturally occur as part of the timbre of a sound, subharmonics, when introduced, sound like distinct pitches, allowing you to create chords of harmonically-related notes.

This tutorial walks you through making a set of subharmonic oscillators and envelope filter like the ones on the Moog Subharmonicon

Understanding Granular Synthesis (Symbolic Sound Kyma GrainCloud & SampleCloud) | Simon Hutchinson

video upload by Simon Hutchinson

"Explaining granular synthesis and giving demonstrations with the Kyma GrainCloud and SampleCloud sound objects.

Granular synthesis is a synthesis technique where we can assemble new sounds from very short "grains" of sound. We can do this with wavetables or longer samples, breaking them down into these short grains before reconstituting them back together in unique ways. Because we can change all of these tiny parts that make up our new sounds, there are exciting opportunities for real time control and performance.
