SetonixSynth Tidbit Audio Psychedelic Voltage Processor

with Rings - Eurorack video upload by SetonixSynth

"In this video, Nick from Tidbit Audio takes us on a psychedelic journey using the Psychedelic Voltage Processor to modulate the popular Rings module!

Patch note: in some segments the PVP is being modulated by an external LFO, the OCHD, and using its output to modulate the Rings."

SetonixSynth Tidbit Audio Psychedelic Voltage Processor & Solar Gravity Nasty Acid

video upload by SetonixSynth

"A quick, fun jam using the new SetonixSynth/Tidbit Audio Psychedelic Voltage Processor to process audio from Befaco Kickall for nasty chaotic distortion, along with a Solar Gravity Vactrol VCA as the final VCA for our acid voice, which consists of a SetonixSynth Rottnest VCO saw wave into the Marsupial VCF.

The PVP and Solar Gravity are now available along with other SetonixSynth and Tidbit Audio products!"

More info:"

The Psychedelic Voltage Processor, or PVP, is a four-channel chaos module. It uses color-changing LEDs to produce fluctuating voltages in response to the Channel input, with each channel normalized in series to create increasingly chaotic “taps” that can be used one after another for different variations.

Any positive voltage input such as unipolar LFOs, envelopes, stepped voltages, or simply the onboard normalized voltage patched to a channel input is reproduced approximately on each channel output, with the PVP inducing unpredictable fluctuations due to the variable current consumed by an LED circuit with a mind of its own.

Technical Specifications (Eurorack standard)

Width: 8hp

Depth: 25mm

Peak Current Draw: 135mA @ +12V, 10mA @ -12V

Input Impedance (Channel 1): 150kΩ

You love that machine? A DB-01 synth solo performance

video upload by Richard DeHove

"This piece began as a demo for the Boss SL-2 slicer pedal. After noodling with it I thought it'd be interesting to slice up a distorted sound, so added the trusty Darkglass B3K which just loves chewing the the DB-01's Polivoks filter.
Turns out that the SL-2 is a lot more subtle than just the obvious rhythmic patterns. Here's there's three intertwining elements: The actual programmed pattern of notes on the DB-01; the DB-01's synced LFO with a sawtooth wave giving a separate filter envelope hit every 8 beats; and then the SL-2 which superimposes its own pattern on top. The mix of the DB-01 pattern and SL-2 pattern is set on the pedal, and the relative strength of the LFO filter hit depends on how much you open the filter. So with three synced patterns clocked together there is much fun to be had. Which is why I didn't make it past preset one in bank A.
I was going to layer this up with some other sounds but thought it was more useful to show the degree of complexity that you can get from a mono synth and a couple of pedals looping through one 32-step pattern.
This is all one take with no DAW effects or processing (other than the added movie quotes of course), but I did chop out a few sections to trim it down from its original 7-minute version.
As soon as I can make it past the first few presets I'll do a real walkthrough of the SL-2 - it's an incredibly deep machine. Like so many pedals and synths the satisfaction and beauty comes from subtle tweakerings. The main change I made was to switch it into 'ping-pong' mode which is perhaps a bit too strong if you listen through headphones - well, live and learn. My only immediate advice with the SL-2 is that, unless it's the master, it's absolutely vital for it to run off a common MIDI clock. You also must be able to send a MIDI clock restart.
The short intro video and title of the piece "You Love That Machine?" is one of the quotes about halfway through. They're taken from the low-budget classic "Creation of the Humanoids" - one of my all-time favorite movies. The robot-human images are all originals generated by me using AI.

Moog Mavis | Hivemind II

video upload by Moog Music Inc

"In this exploration of sound design, composition, and video synthesis, electronic music producer and Moog Product Strategist Max Ravitz (a.k.a. Patricia) combines eight Mavis synthesizers in a dynamic audiovisual performance.

Each Mavis in this setup provides a different element in the song, ranging from wave-folded kick drums to 808-inspired cymbals and double-VCO basses to folding leads. All eight Mavis synthesizers in this performance are sequenced by the Winter Modular Eloquencer with a touch of delay provided by the OTO Machines BIM and the Chase Bliss x Meris CXM 1978 reverb, adding a bit of dimension to the mix.

Visuals for this video were created using an LZX modular analog video synthesizer."

"Download the new 'Hivemind II' video companion patch book!

This creative resource, free to download through our website, contains the patches heard in the “Hivemind II'' performance.

Using this guide, Mavis owners can recreate the video's sounds ranging from distinct kicks and hi-hats to booming bass and melodic leads. Perfect for live performance or recording into a sampler or DAW, each of these unique sounds can open up new possibilities for artists using Mavis in a production setup.

The digital patch book is one of many sound design resources that can be found on the Explore Mavis page on our website.

Joranalogue Audio Design PIVOT 2 / first patches and exploration

video upload by BRiES

"In this very first video with a pre-production unit of PIVOT 2 by Joranalogue Audio Design I experimented with a few different ways in which the clever signal router can be used to route signals to and from each other. PIVOT 2 is also suited to transition smoothly between serial, parallel or inverted serial processor chaining. I use PIVOT 2 as a voltage controlled panner, to crossfade between two modulators and to create feedback paths. Lastly I use the module as a simple VCA.

I'm in the process of learning how to work with Final Cut Pro so please don't mind the video fx and unelegant video and text transitions."

XFMR Ring Modulator : With Sine Waves & Other Waveforms : Vaemi (Eurorack)

video upload by Vaemi

"The XFMR Ring Modulator is a very old transformer ring modulator design. It dates back to 1947. The inventor of the device is Harald Bode, not the inventor of the ring modulator, but the inventor of many other important circuits, who first thought of using it in music systems and designed an example of it. The first versions had inputs with 2 audio transformers and 4 diodes installed in a ring configuration for the ring modulator.
The module is 10 hp. It is hand-assembled with very high-quality through-hole components. The transformers used in the XFMR Ring Modulator are Tamura brand transformers with very high quality and flat response. There are two separate transformers at the input and output. Also, the input and output voltages are calibrated according to our system and eurorack systems.
Input and output have a headroom of 10Vpp. Unlike the original design, the module is not passive but active (buffered). The XFMR Ring Modulator has a Carrier input and input attenuator, an Output and its attenuator, a Modulator CV input and its attenuator. The lights on the panel show the exact phase of the modulation. The gain setting you choose on the input signals will change and affect the sound of the XFMR Ring Modulator. It will also affect and change the harmonics generated by the attenuator to reduce the amount of modulation. There is also an offset knob for ring modulation. Here you can change the zero point of the modulation, direct and shape the modulation.
At Vaemi, we have revived this old construction technique by creating the XFMR Ring Modulator as an active ring modulator with a transformer.
