In this video, we explore the sounds of the Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas Percido eurorack synth voice. We'll feed it pitch and modulation via the Clank Chaos sequencer, trigger it with Intellijel Tete and Tetrapad, and process it with a custom techno patch on the Empress Effects Zoia Euroburo.

video upload by VonTich

via this auction

"PPG Wave 2.2 with midi installed. System software is V8.3. Includes custom dust cover and a custom wooden box for shipping. In great condition for its age, some minor scratches. Professionally serviced recently. Also, in 2016 I got it fully restored by a tech who specializes in PPGs. He installed the keyboard upgrade kit, replaced the battery, replaced lots of caps, including the power supply one, tuned the voice boards, and tested everything.

This PPG Wave 2.2 was used to make Goldbaby's BlueWave sample pack. Check out the pack by visiting the Goldbaby website."

Yellow Waldorf Q Rack - excellent sound ( PPG filter)

via this auction

"A German specialty since 1999 - and still one of the most powerful virtual-analog synthesizers in its class. Not least because its operating system has been regularly updated to keep features and performance up to date.

Q’s sound design abilities and its user-friendly design are simply outstanding. Here’s why: Its recipe combines ingredients like the legendary PPG-filter, a 25-band vocoder, wavetable generators including sub-oscillators, surround delay effects, comb-filter and a whole lot more. "

OB-Xa Eurorack filter comparison

video upload by John Schussler

"This is 20 minutes of me bouncing back and forth between two Oberheim OB-Xa style eurorack filters, trying to hear the differences between them. If you're not deeply interested in OB-Xa filters, you're probably better off moving along.

Still here? Ok. So, these two filters are close but not identical to the original VCF in the Oberheim OB-Xa. They have some improvements here and there, but for the most part are true to the original sound of the Oberheim. (I don't have an OB-Xa, so whether they're exactly the same or not I have no idea.)

As I go through I'm going to first try and get them as identical as possible, then listen to their less identical aspects.

In both cases I'm sticking to the 'standard' model, not the state variable option.

Sorry for the crackles here and there, my interface seems unhappy. They don't get in the way, they're just occasionally irritating."
