Strymon Zelzah with an OB-6 (no talk noodling)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"True stereo in and stereo out phaser pedals are reasonably rare - there's the Twin Lazers, Helix, Lunar and a handful of others. Some, like the MXR Phase 99 are potentially great but don't have stereo inputs. Others like the old Digitech SP-7 are technically stereo in and out but don't make any use of the stereo field. Which is the long way for me to justify buying my first Strymon pedal. Since it cost me Au$579 I had big expectations. So I'm very happy to report it's lived up to my hopes. As a bonus it does excellent flanger and very good chorusy sounds as well. The vibrato-style wobble effect is also very useful with the OB-6 since the synth only has one LFO.
Here I just noodle about trying to give a fair feel for the range of effects. I didn't play with any of the secondary functions, so they're all fixed. Specifically I had it on stereo line input, barberpole on continuous fall, maximum stereo width, and the 6-stage feeding into the 4-stage (which is the default routing).
The OB-6 is going direct into the Zelzah, from there to the Erica Synths Zen Delay, and from there into the DAW. No other processing or effects are used. The Zen delay makes it hard to distinguish the stereo field effect of the Zelzah, but that's how I'd use the pedal in real use so I thought I'd present it that way.
Timestamps are a bit fuzzy since I'm constantly tweaking the settings.

Noise Engineering Releases Three Free Plugins

You can find demos in previous posts here.

via Noise Engineering

The beta is over! Noise Engineering moves to full release of three free powerful plugins

Los Angeles, CA — Noise Engineering is happy to announce the end of the public beta and move to full release of three free plugins: synths Sinc Vereor and Virt Vereor and distortion Ruina.

Asked why the move from Eurorack to software, the Noise Engineering team said that it was inspired by several things: first, they’d been bombarded with requests for plugins from modular synth users who love the sound but needed portability or repeatability. They were also extremely aware of the barrier to entry to a modular system and really wanted to make their products more widely accessible (which is partly why this release is free, and will remain free). Finally, they have no plans to stop making modules, but a core value for this small team of six self-described nerds is to keep challenging themselves to learn new things, and making plugins fit the bill. They anticipate further plugin releases based on Eurorack favorites (including a VST3/AU release of their currently AAX-only bundle) coming soon.

Sinc Vereor is an intuitive and powerful synthesizer loosely based on Noise Engineering’s beloved Eurorack module Sinc Iter. Sinc Vereor’s wavemorphing/wavefolding Tone control makes sound design a breeze. Blend between familiar waveforms like saw, triangle, and square. Super mode adds 6 phase-offset oscillators. Use Noise mode to generate self-similar noise for percussion, effects, and more.

Virt Vereor is a powerful synthesizer based on a unique set of synthesis algorithms. Bass is a quadrature algorithm described in Bernie Hutchins’ seminal series Electronotes. Sawx is a supersaw-inspired beast. Harm is an additive algorithm with spectral control and distortion of partials. Virt Vereor makes a tremendous amount of unique sounds with an immediate and usable interface.

Some readers will recognize the names of these algorithms, and indeed they come from Noise Engineering’s contribution to Arturia’s Microfreak V3 firmware and the upcoming Virt Iter module.

Both the Sinc and Virt oscillators are paired with Vereor, Noise Engineering’s easily manipulated dynamics section using an ADSR envelope controlling a variable slope and analog-inspired multimode gate/filter. Add to that a vintage-inspired chorus and a over 1000 presets each, and these synths have something for everyone: bridge the gap between traditional subtractive sounds and modern synthesis techniques, or design innovative basses, leads, or whatever your project calls for.

Ruina is a creative stereo distortion plugin built on digital distortion algorithms: no emulations here. Intuitive and fully automatable controls make it easy to get a gentle, nuanced color, to obliviate a signal, or to dial in anything in between. Don’t feel like tweaking the parameters? Ruina comes with over 500 presets to fit any need, a Random button to generate new sounds, and a Nudge option to just give the parameters the tiniest bump.
Ruina has a wavefolder, a multiband saturator, a chaotic suboctave generator, octavizer, and phase shifter. It also features a notch or bandpass filter with adjustable tracking, and a control to set the order of the distortions in the signal flow to further customize your sound. Last but not least, Overdrive adds up to 128x gain for maximal destruction.

Run any sound through Ruina for warm, lush distortion, or crank the sliders to unleash complete ruin. With seven distortion types, it’s easy to turn your sounds into something singular with Ruina.

All three plugins are free to download: just make an account at the Noise Engineering Customer Portal ( and download the installer from the Plugins tab. And while they will remain free, the NE team has big plans to keep developing these. They have a substantial roadmap for future features, some of which were suggestions from the beta users, including introducing extensive internal modulation, more advanced randomization, MIDI learn, MPE support, and more.

Notable features:
• 64-bit Intel + M1
• Mac and Windows
• Intuitive interfaces to easily and quickly manipulate sound
• Use the Random button to generate new patches in one click
• Easy to automate, user-friendly controls. No prior synthesis experience needed, but
synth enthusiasts will also be inspired by the simple-yet-powerful interface
• Fully MIDI-mappable
• Tons of presets included
• Three unique synthesis algorithms inspired by little-known synthesis techniques
(quadrature, supersaw beast, and additive)
• Huge number of distortion possibilities with wavefolding, octavizing, multiband
saturation, suboctave generation, phase shifting, and overdrive

Noise Engineering Introduces Lacrima Versio

via Noise Engineering

Bring guitar-inspired effects into your rack with the devil’s autowah from Noise Engineering:

Lacrima Versio firmware

Los Angeles, CA — Lacrima Versio is Noise Engineering’s take on the classic autowah, in stereo, and with a twist.

Lacrima’s roots are in analog Autowah pedals. As a fan of the wah-pedal sound, Noise Engineering’s Doer of Many Things Kris Kaiser wanted to do a NE version of a wah as part of the Ruina line of analog distortions. The team was the better part of the way through a schematic when they realized that this would fit well on the Versio platform, and changed course.

Lacrima Versio features an envelope follower that controls a high-resonance filter. Morph the filter between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass slopes, and Lacrima covers all the sounds you’d expect from a typical wah – but this is not your typical wah. Route an adjustable distortion pre, post, or pre+post

filter for some saturation crunch. Add width and motion (and just a little otherworldly tone) to your sounds with a stereo chorus. Last but not least, use the Mod parameter to add audio-rate modulation and octavizing to your signal.
Lacrima Versio is way more fully featured than the module it started as, and even better, it’s available as a free download to anyone with any Versio module at the Noise Engineering Customer Portal ( Beautiful panel overlays will be available soon through Noise Engineering’s collaboration with Winterbloom.

Notable features:
• Stereo autowah with unique features: for everything from classic sounds to extreme filtering
• Adjustable and routable saturation distortion
• Juno-inspired chorus
• Octavizer and audio-rate modulation
• Guitar-inspired effects take your rack into a new realm

• Free to Versio module owners
• Availability: Download at the Noise Engineering Customer Portal starting on October 14, 2021

Model:Cycles + iPad Ambient Space Exploration

video upload by Perplex On

"It’s sometimes challenging and fun to use a machine in a way it isn't necessarily common to use. I got myself a model:cycles recently and tried to push it into ambient territory. By using a little helper app on the ipad called #polythemus it’s basically possible to use all six tracks on the cycles at the same time by allocating the voices per channel, so it’s actually possible to play the cycles like a six-voice fm synth. Here i'm actually only using 4 tone tracks, sequenced by #riffer going into #chordjam. Additional fx by routing the incoming audio through #velvetmachine for a smooooooth envelope as well as #rymdigare for a bit of extra space sprinkles."

Essence Vol 1 - Patches 65 to 96 - Sequential Take 5

video upload by GEOSynths

GEOSynths Sequential Take 5 posts

"Out Thursday 14th October 2021

I love this little Synth, it has such a great Sound Engine to it. I wasn't going to bother with it as I've done quite a lot of Patches for Sequential Synths, however I decided it would be worth trying at least and the the next thing I knew, I'd made a load of Sounds!

In Essence vol 1 there is 128 Patches covering Pads and Motion Sounds...Of course, that's what I do best! Also cutting Leads and Bass, Poly and traditional Sounds. The combination of VCO/VCF/Mod Matrix is quite spectacular on the Take 5 and I've been creating textures which I've not heard before on Sequential Synths.

Here are the next 32 demonstrated, hope you enjoy them and watch out for the last video.

Melotus Versio is a stereo texturizer that uses granular processing to transform and reshape sound. Designed to be played by hand or manipulated within a patch, Melotus is everything from a grain delay to a completely transformative texturizer with grain control and manipulation of triggering, direction, and randomness. Filter audio with a lowpass/highpass combo filter that adds haunting shimmers and subharmonics. Freeze grains by hand or with triggers and gates, or clock them to create rhythmic effects.

The Noise Engineering team has been thinking about granular processors for a long time. Said Doer of Many Things Kris Kaiser, "We have several different approaches we’re interested in with granular. We’ve been thinking of Melotus Versio one as 'granular for the Doombient generation.'”

Melotus Versio is part of the Versio DSP platform: transform it into a completely different effect by loading a growing number of alternate firmwares, including reverb, delay, distortion, and more, completely free at the Noise Engineering Customer Portal:

Vice Virga is our long-awaited 8-input, 8-output sequential/addressable switch . Equal parts automated patch arranger and performance tool, VV can be configured as a single 8-channel switch, two 4-channel switches, or four 2-channel switches, effectively giving you three sequential switches for the price of one. Advance going Forward, Reverse, or Pendulum. The Behavior switch adds a Noise Engineering touch: choose Seq for simple sequential switch mode, a random single output per step mode, and a mode for complete chaos: signals are routed within their group to zero, one, or several outputs per step. And it does it all in only 8HP.

Stephen McCaul, the Chief Noisemaker of Noise Engineering, said that Vice Virga has been a long time in the making: 'Vice Virga is one of the first modules I started to design when Noise Engineering was still a hobby, but things just always got in the way of finishing it off. Getting this one right took a lot of work; Kris, the Doer We’re happy to finally put this out into the world.'"

Pittsburg Modular Introduces Flamingo Harmonic Interpolation Eurorack Module

via Pittsburg Modular

"Modular Synthesis Safari
Limited Production Experiments

A glimpse into our design process, the Safari modules give Richard and Michael an opportunity to highlight interesting concepts, test ideas for future instruments, and scratch their creative itch. We have built a small number of each of the Safari modules and because these designs are meant to be a proof of concept or work in progress, we do not plan on making more.

Series 2

Flamingo (available soon)
Expanding on a concept discussed but never implemented by Don Buchla, the Flamingo introduces Center Clipping and Harmonic Interpolation to analog synthesis.

Center Clipping is a method of shaping a waveform from the inside out. Independently pulling the top half or bottom half of a waveform toward the middle. Fun.

Taking it a step further, Overtone adds another dimension to the analog waveform gymnastics by sliding and inverting the top and/or bottom of the waveform back on itself creating new types of wave shapes and shifting the fundamental in and out of the waveform.

The complex wave shaping capabilities of Center Clipping come at a cost. Center Clipping is a destructive process that can dramatically reduce the amplitude of waveforms. Harmonic Interpolation is the process of attempting to restore the center clipped waveform by allowing the analog circuitry to guess what the waveform should look like. Results will vary."

"This video documents the Kawai XD5 I'm selling on Reverb, enjoy, its not just a drum box"

via this auction

"Kawai XD-5 percussion synthesizer module in excellent condition with DC16 RAM card, power supply and full documentation including schematics.

Be sure to check out the video walk thru made with this actual unit for sale. This synth is more than a drum box!

This is an awesome drum synth module that has 256 waveforms, four of which can be combined to create a single drum or synth sound.

You build an array of 64 patches, from there you assign them to a "kit" spanning 88 keys and save it. You can have 16 Kits ready to rock.

It has great resonant lowpass filters and envelopes for shaping the sounds and is excellent for techno, electro and industrial drums, basslines and leads. For effects, a delay type effect is possible as well as a ring-modulator.

Patches can be directed to stereo out or 6 individual outs . Directing your kicks to a separate out and then to a compressor really makes them punchy.
There are 32 digital oscillators, 256 waveforms (16-bit, 44.1kHz resolution) comprised of
41 DC (Digital Cyclic) and
215 CM waveforms,
16 note polyphony,
64 user patches,
16 user drum kits,
a 16 x 2 character backlit LCD display screen, 2-space rack mountable

This XD-5 is in great shape and comes as pictured with a photocopy of the Owner's Manual, Patch List (Factory Preset), Wave List / MDI Data Format manual
includes a 12V wall wart power supply."

Sci-fi rhythms and ambient: Soma Enner live west coast avant-garde synthesizer electronic music

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is my second run through using the Soma Laboratory Enner instrument, designed by Sistor. The goal was to make something film music appropriate that would work as an ambience outer space soundtrack while also adding the utility of a Boss RC-5 looper pedal to build up more complex rhythms. This synth is very geared towards both drones and rhythms, as well as using the piezo pickup with the case, spring, and rubber bands to make added percussive sounds. I'm very excited to continue exploring and find even more sounds. I'm making a lot of use of the ring modulation inputs for the drones. This synth is patched using touch, and I love the idea of having an instrument that I can use my hands on to create sound and have a direct connection to the music. I am using the west coast technique of starting with something and spinning it out like a centrifuge. I'm processing the sound through an Eventide H9 pedal with some reverb and an a Boss RC-5 looper pedal. Hopefully this camera angle also helps you learn something!"

Octave Plateau Cat SRM II Vintage Analog Synthesizer (NOS) SN G1110

via this auction

"* Vintage Cat SRM II, factory new, never used

* One of the first and best sounding analog synthesizers ever made

* Includes Glide on/off foot switch

* Includes original owner’s manual and original literature for Octave Plateau products

* For more information about the Cat series, Google "Fandom Electronic Music Wiki Cat Synthesizer"

The Cat SRM II synthesizer was manufactured by Octave-Plateau from 1980 – 81. It is the best and final model of the Cat synthesizer series, which included the original Cat (1976) and Cat SRM (1978). We have been fortunate enough to acquire some New Old Stock (NOS) from Octave Plateau’s last production run in 1981. These units have never been used and were safely kept in storage since the day they were manufactured. If you’re an analog synth aficionado, this is an opportunity to own an authentic piece of electronic music history.

Here’s what we’ve done to this unit:

Calibrated and thoroughly tested every function to assure everything works as designed.
Cleaned and checked all switches, pots keyboard contacts, buss bar and electronic circuits.
Replaced the keyboard rubber bushings on all keys.
Replaced critical calibration single-turn trimmers with high-precision multi-turn trimmers for greater stability.
Included a foot switch that plugs into the back of the synthesizer and turns on the glide function when the switch is pressed, allowing a smooth glide between notes only when desired.

Monophonic/duophonic keyboard plays two notes with memory function on second note.
Digital keyboard with single contact per key (more reliable than the dual-contact analog keyboard used on previous Cat models and most other analog synthesizers of the day).
Dual VCOs (CEM3340) with oscillator sync and mixable waveforms for complex tones.
Sub octaves on both VCOs for full, deep bass sounds.
Four-pole LPF (SSM2044) with adjustable keyboard tracking.
Versatile modulation system to create a wide variety of sounds.
LFO (with variable delay on sine output), S&H and dual envelope generators.
White noise generator.
Extensive expansion jacks on rear panel.
This unit has the original press-wood veneer sides with plastic edge stripping. It is shipped in a plain, unmarked box, not the original box. Although it has never been used, there may be some minor cosmetic imperfections, which is how it left the factory. Please refer to the photos for cosmetic details."
