Electronisounds Audio Happy New Year! Eurorack Patching and Jamming! (No Talking)

video upload by Electronisounds Audio

"Just Patching for fun. No Talking.
Thanks for listening! :) :)"

Cross-rhythmic potential with patchblocks

video upload by dænkrø_ ElectriXity_

"Hi everyone,

unfortunately, I did not have much spare time in the last year, so all of my ElectriXity projects had to wait in a line. Eventually, I have been able to finish this one, which is the first of a series of rhythmically orientated soundscapes made with patchblocks. Most of them derived from a patch which is based on prime numbers to avoid too much regularity in the rhythmic patterns. This is an edit made of two live jam takes, so please don't expect video and audio to be in sync at any given second ;-)
Wish you all the best for 2021 and stay healthy!!

Cross-rhythmic potential part 2 (with Korg Volca Beats and Patchblocks)

"I hereby declare against all common opinions that I love my Korg Volca Beats. I am not ashamed to admit it and so I want to express my gratitude and pay tribute to the many happy hours I have spent playing around and listening to my beloved drum machine. And yes, I also and especially adore the sound of its snare. Change my mind!"

Cinematic Laboratory 2021 Recap

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I'd like to wrap up a year of 153 videos with some highlights. I felt this year went by way too fast, but looking back on so many great moments of exploring modular gear it made me realize many of my favorite modules were released in 2021. If you're new to the channel, this recap may point you to videos you may like to watch. I have no idea what 2022 will bring but let's find out together!"

A Bass Moment with meeblip geode

video upload by nbornbor

"I recorded this to demo on a FB group, but goddamn, I love the sound of this thing, so it's in my catalog here. Sending a simple MIDI bass line to the Geode and playing with the knobs is so satisfying. There's a very odd transient in the attack on this synth that sounds almost mechanical, like there some spring loaded mechanism in this box that triggers the sound. I love it.
No compression or eq on this, just raw crud from the synth."

Synth Jam 86: Uno Synth Pro & Behringer 2600

video upload by Marcus Padrini

"Last Synth Jam of 2021, with the meeting of the Behringer 2600 and the Uno Synth Pro from IK Multimedia. The 2600 is being sequenced by the Korg SQ1, responsible for sending the main melody sequence to oscillators 1 and 2 and the bass note to oscillator 3. The sound of the 2600, in addition to the internal reverb, is being processed Analog Delay Ibanez Echo Shifter.

Uno Synth Pro is using the internal effects processor.

Elektron Digitone and Octatrack Performance

video upload by Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) tells us why he chooses the Digitone for writing music followed by a performance paired with the Octatrack MK2.

From Elektron: 'Digitone represents our vision of how FM synthesis can be revitalized and modernized. Here’s how: combine FM sound generation with a classic subtractive synthesis signal flow. From jagged chaos to mellow soundscapes in less than a second. Digitone is one unique box.

Choose from multiple FM algorithms featuring carefully selected parameters. Shape the tones with powerful filters. Arrange them with the intuitive Elektron sequencer. Round off with the stellar effects. Now enjoy the most spectacular sounds, seemingly emanating from some parallel universe.'

Snoglob - Hypnotic Synthwave - Prophet 10 / Juno 60

video upload by Postmodern Machine

"2021 → 2022

Our world can be crazy and chaotic, but has potential 🌍

Hoping we see more shifts for the better in 2022. For everything that inhabits this planet ❄🌄

Initially part of some experiments feeding the prophet 10 into the modular, this took on a bigger life after the capture of my snowy pear tree 🌳

The modular video captures the tweaks during the capture of the arp pattern. The arp sequence was altered behind the camera a couple times. The Monsoon (Clouds) created extra notes a 5th down in a different pattern. A few layers including drums were added in reaper after the initial performance."

Driving a second synth with the DB-01

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The DB-01 is usually stuck in the bass realm, but simply driving a second synth by MIDI can add an entirely new feel to a bass sequence. Here the DB-01 is driving a Vermona PerFourMer MkII. The DB-01 is going through a Boss RV-6 reverb, the PerFourMer through the Erica Synths Zen Delay (which seems to suit it so well). The second DB-01 makes a tiny cameo appearance with an effect sound. No other effects or processing than what you see.
Although the DB-01 is very happy driving other synths via MIDI or CV, it is surprisingly unhappy driving a second DB-01. Not only could I not get one DB-01 to drive the other, using CV seemed to somehow corrupt the pitch and I had to do a complete unit reset.
