Nymphes 6-Voice Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer - Huge FX patch

video upload by Chris Sneider

"Boasting an all-analog signal path, Dreadbox’s powerful Nymphes evokes classic single-VCO-per-voice polyphonic synths from the 1980s in a modern form factor. Nymphes offers seven different play modes — including polyphonic, unison, and duophonic options, and chord memory — with extensive modulation capabilities in the form of assignable LFO, aftertouch, velocity, and mod wheel (from an external keyboard controller). There are seven separate envelope generators for the VCA and the VCF/VCO — from grimy basslines to plasma-cutter leads, effervescent pads, and animated arpeggios, the Dreadbox Nymphes can do it all!"

Nymphes 6 voice Analog Synthesizer v. 2023

video upload by Chris Sneider

"The Dreadbox Nymphes offers six voices of polyphony, powered by a waveshaping voltage-controlled oscillator. Morph between triangle, sawtooth, and square waves with variable pulse-width modulation, and fortify your low end with the 1-octave-down sub-oscillator. Additionally, Nymphes has a white noise generator on tap for adding texture to patches, designing percussive sounds, and cultivating dramatic wind sounds and noise sweeps. Seven different play modes are available, including polyphonic 6-voice, polyphonic 3-note with two voices per note, duophonic with three voices per note, plus 6-voice and 4-voice unison modes and single-voice mono."

10+ ways to use & abuse distortion in Eurorack // London, Twin & Mini Drive from Music Thing Modular

video upload by DivKid

"Here’s the new London Drive and Twin Drive Eurorack modules from Music Thing Modular alongside the original Mini Drive. They are simple, small, affordable and beginner friendly DIY kits that all provide a range of tones from more subtle to more aggressive distortion. The Mini Drive and Twin Drive are based on the external input stage of the classic Minimoog Model D where as the London Drive is based on the input stage of the EMS VCS3 and Synthi AKS.

This video goes through 10+ ways to get creative using and abusing distortion from adding weight and warmth, dynamic thickening to more aggressive fuzziness and feedback patching. There’s also CV tricks such as mixing AC and DC to make PWM like FX in the clipping itself - which sounds fantastic with these. Try out the patches and let me know which patch is your favourite.

Here’s the routing graphic from the final patch //

CODEberheim 8

video upload by Studio Electronics

"Once again I’m on the inside — lookin’ out looking in.

SEM-filtered CODE Omega8 & @saintregis (Instagram) bring the water and its spirit to my eyes.

Single track purity, polyphonic power and purpose: sometimes it's disclosed like that.

Minimal sweetening, limiting and spot normalization, so do enjoy the wide dynamic range and culmination!

Antonelli 2610 Solista IV. Quick & dirty jam.

via the comments of this older post for one for sale.

"We just randomly played & discovered this weird italian synth/organ from the late 70s (early 80s?).

Unfortunatly there's no sound when playing the middle octave on the keyboard. The vibrato doesn't seem to work& the phaser may be too strong."

Textquencer - Text Based MIDI Sequencer

Textquencer Quick Minute video upload by boxoftextures

"Just got Textquencer, a new 'bud' from Cem Olcay. It feels like it was one of those bonkers 'hey, what if I…' ideas you get when you least expect them. Absolute madness, in the best of ways LOL

It takes your text and converts it to MIDI notes. Can be randomly chaotic, reined-in ordered, or even manually composed, if that’s your style.



"Textquencer is a text-based MIDI Sequencer. It creates MIDI sequences from the plain text!

Each letter in the alphabeth triggers a note in the scale you are working.

Letter A triggers the Note C (the first note) in the C-Major Scale
Letter B triggers the Note D (the second note)
Letter C triggers the Note E (the third note)
Letter H triggers the Note C but an octave higher"

EURORACK VISIT #2 / Threetom Modular's Audio Laboratory / diagnostics and coffeebeans

video upload by BRiES

"In this video I once again take you with me to the place where Threetom Modular gear is conceptualized and born. Tom shows us the calibration and quality control workflow in his Audio Lab while giving us some insight in the tools he uses (links below). We talk about his recent ventures with retailers and about the next module in his line-up called Doppio. After being served a nice cappucino I ask Tom if he has some tips (concepts to study) for people that want to get into designing and building (eurorack) synthesizers, which he answers elaborately. There's a comprehensive list towards the bottom of this description including links to interesting tutorials and practical examples.

As most of you will probably know Tom designs and builds synthesizer modules for the eurorack environment. He gained worldwide recognition with his 4hp filtermodule called Steve's MS-22 (or MS-22 for short) based around the sound of the famous Korg MS-20 semi-modular synth. In part one of the documentary we witnessed how Tom builds a few of these modules from scratch while we talk about his favourite tools, his background as an (optical) engineer and some of his custom jigs. You can watch that video by following this link:" [posted here]
