Synthesis Technology MOTM: My First Ambient Encounter (Mother Of The Modulars)

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!
I had a difficult time getting the sound into Pro Tools, so I ended up recording everything extremely quietly with a number of clicks, which I tried to eliminate in RX after recording. Aside from that, I added some more processing to make the ambient drone experience more pleasant. I'll try to record it with more attention and comprehension the next time. Otherwise, for the actual patch, I just used everything this system had to give, and surprisingly the synth stayed in tune because the room I was working in was 53 degrees Fahrenheit, and I wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible after getting one take done. Till next time!

'Pan Flute' - How to make this movie-inspired, all-analog Synth Patch in Eurorack Modular

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"This was loosely inspired by the 'pan flute' sound from the film 'Aguirre: Wrath of God', and uses a single VCO, white noise, and envelope-controlled filtering to simulate the pipe and breath elements that form the sound. Fixed Filter Bank sculpts the noise, removing low frequencies and pushing selected highs, before being mixed into the Sonic XV's bandpass filter along with the square wave from the VCO. Importantly, the FFB's wet/dry mix is also controlled by an envelope here, a rare feature on a filter bank. Pulse width modulation from red noise ads a subtle distortion to the oscillator, and the VCA in the Dual LFO is used to ad optional pitch vibrato and VCF frequency modulation.
Patch sheet PDF:

Aside from the flute scene (see link in video), the movie soundtrack was mostly the brilliant work of Popul Vuh, and makes the official album release worth listening to regardless of the movie, with memorable use of Mellotron. However, the Werner Herzog movie itself is equally brilliant and memorable, a captivating, immersive experience to watch, made on an unimaginably small budget, yet a direct influence on Coppola's 'Apocalypse Now' a few years later.

The AJH SYNTH Eurorack range consists of high-end modules, all hand-made in the UK, most of which are based on classic, vintage designs, authentically recreating the circuitry of much sought-after analogue instruments and technologies of the past, whilst greatly expanding them, and bringing them to modern Eurorack levels of convenience, limitless flexibility, and reliability.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Video by @DreamsOfWires

Green dots show approximate pot and switch positions. Pots and switches that do not have green dots are not used in this patch, and should be left at their zero or off positions. Multiple cables may branch to different destinations, this is where some form of multiple should be used.
This patch needs a lot of fine-tuning, so precise pot positions cannot possibly be illustrated, but this should serve as a starting point, from where further experimentation should be applied. The video tries to explain what is happening with the core modules, which should make it easier to understand what needs fine-tuning.
KEYBOARD: Here the controller's MOD output is used to send Aftertouch, but alternatively Velocity, or direct control from the MOD wheel/strip could be sent to the Dual LFO's CV input instead, depending on your controller and personal preference. DUAL LFO: Output goes directly to EXP-CV of the VCO, and IN 1 of the CV MIX.
CV MIX: This module is used here to combine the CV from the LFO and Contour Generator 1, then to fine-tune it, before sending to Sonic XV and Fixed Filter Bank.
FIXED FILTER BANK 914: The IN 2 pot needs to be at zero - this sets the Dry level to zero if nothing is connected to the IN 2 socket, so that when the envelope changes the Wet/Dry level it is in fact affecting the output level of the module, as only a varying portion of the Wet signal is then sent to the Muting Mixer.
Modules used from top-left to bottom-right: Glide + Noise, Vintage Transistor Core VCO, Sonic XV, Contour Generators, Discrete Cascaded VCA, Dual LFO + VCA, CV Mix, Muting Mixer, Fixed Filter Bank 914."

Macbeth Micromac R Semi Modular Analog Synthesizer

"This unit is in immaculate condition inside and out. The oscillators are rock solid and every function operates 100% as should. These were made in a limited run and don't have the extra LFO's on the D desktop version but it doesn't have any power issues of the D and has a very clean output signal. Macbeth units are hard to acquire individually, here you have 3 oscillators,noise, that famous Macbeth filter, 2 snappy envelopes, and many other routing options"

Mono-to-Stereo: PingPongInn, Stereo Overloop, & Cannabits

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Let's do two stereo experiments with PingPongInn.

Overloop Stereo makes nice loops in stereo! We'll play melodies with CZZ-multi that get panned by PingPongInn. Create spacious rhythmic textures with Overloop's delay as it gets recorded and layered on top of itself with each loop iteration.

We'll use PingPongInn to pan our bass guitar and process the left and right channels individually with two instances of Cannabits. All three Organelles are synced via Link! Changing the tempo on one changes the tempo on all of them!

04- The Arturia MiniFreak- Oscillators- Karplus Strong

video upload by AutomaticGainsay

"Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Karplus Strong oscillator found on the Arturia MiniFreak.

The theme was created out of presets and crafted patches over an assemblage of fragments of GarageBand loops. For all intents and purposes, it is a MiniFreak-Only composition."

90s (ish) Ambient DnB - Nord Lead 12 Voice, Zoom 1201, FAB Echo, SmplTrek

video upload by ChrisLody

"In the spirit of trying something new here's an attempt at a genre I've never tried before, Ambient DnB. This is something I've always admired when it's pulled off well, frantic background beats with smooth foreground sounds. Not bad for a first go this I think

The SmplTrek is doing most of the heavy lifting here. I used it's 'chop to drumkit' feature to chop up one of my own drum breaks, pitch it up and sequence it into a few variations.

I'm running the output in a kind of parallel processing sort of set up with two channels of the drum breaks hard panned, one high pass filtered and routed to my external reverb on the Zoom 1201 to give me tweaking control of the high frequencies and the other left drum and low pass filtered. Bass and strings also come from the output that is not routed to reverb but these use the internal reverb.

I then play some occasionally successful staccato lead sounds from the Nord Lead through a modded Fab Echo and that's about it."

Sonicware LIVEN Lofi-12 & Korg DSS-1| David Vs Goliath?

video upload by Espen Kraft

"Looking for a modern sampler/sequencer that can be a mix of old 12-bit Akai samplers and the Casio RZ1, while being able to do a lot more, the LIVEN LoFi-12 might be a good choice.
It does have that Casio RZ-1 sound (and swing) though, so based on that alone it's great."

Electra v2.9 by Tone²| Custom presets, Pads, etc

video upload by Chris Sneider

"The most stable version of Electra so far and the one with the best final sound, watch this video and compare with version 3 that goes out of tune and does weird and unexpected things with the sound, V.2.9 is the one I recommend until Markus makes the necessary adjustments in version 3."

"Hollow Knight, the game I said I would only play on stream, so therefore I never finished it. Still remember the first time I reached the city of tears though. Just sat there and took it all in. That whole area is a vibe. Thanks to my patrons for making me do this one! If you want to both support the channel and vote on which videos I cover, check out the patreon!"
