New WMD Orion Eurorack Phaser Module - Sound Examples, NO TALKING

video upload by WMDevices

"WMD Orion is an analog Phaser effect module for eurorack modular synthesizers in 4HP. It can be used in mono or as a mono to stereo effect, creating cosmic swirls of spaced out texture. An instant bypass switch allows for hands-on engaging of the sound.

The number of stages can be set by the user and the resonance, depth, rate, and frequency-center controls make for quick dialing in of the perfect effect.

In this video, we explore the sounds the Orion is capable of by running different audio sources through it including white noise, saw waves, filtered tones, sounds from the Elektron Digitone, and some drums from the WMD drum modules.

Synclavier Regen

Synclavier Digital is proud to announce its new product, Synclavier Regen. Drawing on the rich history of the Synclavier, while simultaneously breaking new ground in what’s possible in a desktop synthesizer. Stop dreaming, start creating. Synclavier Regen is waiting to be your new companion for sound. Additive synthesis, subtractive synthesis, and sampling have all been given equal reverence in this unique hardware Synclavier .

The new buck in the Synclavier stable
Synclavier Regen is the newest in an auspicious line of Digital FM synthesizers. Designed for desktop use, it contains the power of the Synclavier II DSP engine, enhanced and optimised. Full colour screen, liquid-like touch controls, high fidelity audio output coupled with a sound design powerhouse makes this the synth you always dreamed of.

Regen supports additive synthesis for full control of 24 harmonics. We’ve now added subtractive synthesis to the Synclavier synthesis engine, especially for Regen, allowing creation of super saws, PCM square waves, and noise generation. Or you can use samples for your carrier waveform.

And these different waveform generators can be mixed. You have up to 12 partials to use in your sound design creation with crossfades assignable to inputs such as velocity, pressure, mod wheel, and of course, keyboard.

Regen is loaded with content to get you inspired fast. There are over 250 timbre presets including 6 newly-commisioned artist timbre libraries. On top of that, there are 2 exclusive sample libraries with over 300 new samples and one mega library with over 700 original samples from the NED era.

When you’re done exploring the factory content, you’ll have fun with the sound design possibilities. You can layer up to 12 partials with different sound generators (additive, subtractive, samples) then apply dynamic effects per partial. It’s truly an expressive instrument, both to program and to play. Polyphonic aftertouch and MPE is fully-supported and there’s a sophisticated modulators section where you can apply responsive curves to properties driven by pressure, velocity, mod wheel position, and so on.

The Daddy of digital synthesis is back with a punch. Results are immediate. The DC-coupled audio outputs really kick on basslines and percussion. The pad sounds shine with that satisfying FM that is so unique on Synclavier. And now there’s a bunch of other effects, such as reverb and bit crush to play with.

255 Regen timbre presets
700+ samples of royalty-free factory content
Additive waveforms, subtractive waveform generator and multi-sample patchlists
12 partials to build your sounds.
12 tracks for multi-timbral playback or stacking (layering) of sounds.
4 USB ports for keyboards and other peripherals plus one USB port for connection to DAW. And 5-pin MIDI standard (TRS).
2 full-colour high resolution screens
Senstive liquid-like touch swiper and 12 selector pads.
Multiple effects per track, including chorus, reverb, vibrato, tremolo, arpeggiator, bit crush, and multi-mode filter.
High fidelity DC-coupled audio out (stereo XLR or TS) with 130dB of dynamic range.

Testing Modifications With Rough Peter Gunn Theme Song

video upload by John L Rice

"This started out as just a test to see if my new modifications to this system were working (I custom installed the KMIDI expander for the Kilpatrick K2579 sequencer to the side of the 4ms case since I didn’t have enough hp for it to fit normally). The K2579 sequencer is playing the bass line on both the Alesis NanoPiano via MIDI and the eurorack modules via CV/gate (Modcan Triple VCO, SSF multi mode VCF, SSF ADSR/VCA, Rebel Technology Chronos MKII LFO). The lead line is played on a Haken Audio ContinuuMini."

Arturia JUN-6 V - Sound Bank '79

video upload by Polydata

"Drawing from the earliest days of polyphonic synthesizers, Sound Bank ‘79 for the Arturia Jun-6 V finds its inspiration in synthesizer music found in documentaries and library music from the late 70’s and early 80’s.

A bank comprising 30 patches for instant inspiration. The goal was to squeeze as much vintage analog juice out of this plug-in as possible, primarily working within the constraints of the original Roland Juno-6. I honestly wasn't expecting much from the Jun-6 V going into this project, but I was completely blown away by the sound quality of this plug-in, and it's now definitely among my favorites.

Sound Bank '79 is a series of vintage tones for different synths and plug-ins, so look out for future releases. Recorded completely dry with no external effects or processing.


Lite2Sound listening to the highway lights

video upload by EA78751

"There are hidden layers of reality for example the sounds of modulated light. We're on the highway listening with a Lite2Sound photodiode amplifier. A few decades ago you wouldn't be hearing so many types of interesting tones and frequencies. But now almost every light is modulated and it all blends together like a free ambient soundtrack. On the highway there is also the sound of air turbulence, you hear it whenever a light shines towards the sensor while passing through turbulent air in the wake of a vehicle. I'm disappointed though, this was supposed to be a stereo recording, but by accident the camera only recorded in mono. Location: San Antonio (2022). /"

Cre8audio East Beast and West Pest Synth voices - Sonic LAB Review

video upload by sonicstate

"We're looking at a pair of desktop synths (also mountable in Eurorack) from Cre8Audio - as in previous releases, these are made in collaboration with Richard Nicol from Pittsburgh Modular - he knows how to make great sounding Oscillators, Filters and Wave folders, in fact the core technology of the East Beast (subtractive single VCO synth voice) comes from the VCO, VCF and VCA of the SV-1 Blackbox - which we think sounds pretty fine. The West Pest however has the VCO, Wavefolder and Dynamics from the highly prized Voltage Research Laboratory System - with a rich Wavefolder and resonant Low Pass Gate for a more West Coast sound."

Jolin ASHIKO / quad VCA / 4 channels of CV controlled panning and more

video upload by BRiES

"In this video I demonstrate the powerful nature of ASHIKO by Jolin. ASHIKO is a quad stereo or quad dual mono VCA with auto panning features (see-saw or ping-pong VCA). Especially the ability to easily create stereo movement from any mono signal is what I really like about this module."

26:32 conclusions

ASHIKO is a quad ping-pong VCA designed to create multi-directional stereo sounds starting with mono sources.


4 Stereo full range VCAs.

Transistors based CV inputs designed to give the best results with LFOs.

Individual toggle switches to activate mono or stereo mode.

Selectable hard/soft switching curve.

Input and CV are normalled and they flow top to bottom when no jack is inserted.

Works with audio and CV sources.

'Whatever' power connector a.k.a. don’t mind the polarity.

Sum+Inv (Sum and Invert)

video upload by After Later Audio

"This video covers using Sum+Inv to create quadrature signals out of Cascades' Sine and Cosine outputs..

About Sum+Inv:
Two identical channels with two inputs and two outputs. For the first output the two inputs are summed (at unity) and the second output the sum (at unity) is inverted.

The second channel is identical to the first channel but it normals channel one summed output to the first input. This enables a 3:1 configuration with both a summed and inverted output.

This is a great companion to the COCO system."
