8/2/23 Yamaha DD-10 + Metasonix RK8 & R-57 + Zerosum Inertia 6AS6 + Synthwerks FSR-2P + PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"Yamaha DD-10 plays its 'Computer Swing' beat, with Intro/Fill 2.

The left output of the Yamaha goes straight into the audio in on the RK8. The right output of the Yamaha goes to the Synthwerks FSR-2P and then into CV in on the RK8 (though it is not used in this video). The mix audio out of the RK8 goes to the Mazzatron pass through to the EWI bay to the Samson bay to the Mackie Onyx 16:4, where it gets PCM 70 Gated palate on an aux. Two bands from the RK8 go to the Zerosum Inertia 6AS6 (it matters which goes to which input). The 6AS6 out goes to the Synthwerks FSR-2P and then to the R-57 and through the Mazzatron pass through into the EWI bay into the Samson bay into the Mackie. Towards the end, it actually sounds better when the Yamaha volume is reduced, so more or less input gain is critical to the RK8 like it is with Metasonix TM and TX boxes."

Zlob Modular Folidplier

"A basic overview of the wave folding and feedback capabilities of the Foldiplier. Sine wave input in and using the low harmonic setting for the feedback switch."

via Zlob Modular

The Foldiplier is a 4hp odd/even harmonics generator with 2 different oscillating feedback paths. The folding core of the design originates from the odd harmonics (middle)section of the Serge Wave Multiplier. But the Foldiplier adds voltage control over the symmetry and offset as well as a switch for feedback, jumper selectable between, a transistor based oscillating fuzz inspired by the Hemmo Bazz Fuss with a lot more low harmonic content and a passive oscillating half wave rectification circuit with more high harmonic content. When these feedback oscillations mix with an incoming waveform some unpredictable and unique nonlinear timbres can be achieved. The module can also be used as a no-input experimental oscillator with the feedback switch engaged. All diodes in the module are silicon.

The Fold knob controls the amount of times the waveform is folded in on its self (indicated by the red led window below the knob). The C.V. knob below is an attenuator for incoming control voltage corresponding to the Fold jack(indicated by the red led window above the jack, it only responds to positive voltage). So, the Fold knob acts like an initial amount of folding depending on its position. For example, with the Fold knob fully clockwise you can get even more folds with a control voltage in at the Fold jack. The Offset knob controls how much positive DC voltage(0 to 5v, clockwise) or negative(0 to -5v counter clockwise) DC voltage(indicated by the led window above the Offset jack, red for positive, yellow for negative) injected into the waveform via the Symmetry knob. With the Offset knob position at noon(0v) there will little effect from the Symmetry knob. The Offset jack is expecting +5v to -5v with knob position at noon to scan through the positive and negative voltage. The Symmetry knob controls the amount of negative or positive offset voltage(dependent on the Offset knob) mixed with the waveform(indicated by the yellow led window above the Symmetry jack). If positive voltage is mixed with incoming waveform more folds will occur on the positive troughs of the waveform, likewise, when negative voltage is introduced more folds happen on the negative troughs. This part of the circuit can also be broken down by thinking of the Offset as a voltage controlled crossfader swinging between positive and negative voltages into a VCA controlled by the Symmetry knob and jack. When a voltage is present at the Symmetry jack the Symmetry knob becomes an attenuator. The Symmetry jack only responds to positive voltage.

Sampling with Circuit Rhythm and Perkons HD-01 - Trovarsi Connects

video upload by Novation

"For this video, @Trovarsi sampled a bunch of one-shots and loops from the Perkons drum machine directly into the Circuit Rhythm. The fixed-length recording feature was used to grab an exact 8-step sequence to get some loops going and a few one-shots are quickly sampled as well.

Circuit Rhythm's stereo/mono inputs make it easy to sample sounds directly to the groovebox for quick sequencing and sample mangling fun. After sampling, you can quickly get into creative mode and make a sequence out of the samples as well as use some of the Grid Fxs for performance fun!

It's easy to create packs and download your samples from Circuit Rhythm too. Simply connect your Circuit Rhythm to the computer and go to Components.

Here is a download link to the Perkons samples! Enjoy and let us know in the comments how and what you sample into your Circuit Rhythm:"

FILTRON: free filter from Polyverse

video upload by DATABROTH

"pick it up here:

read my brief review here:"


Filtron is a 12dB state variable filter that can smoothly transition between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass. It is capable of self-oscillation with resonance levels that can reach up to 11! Filtron also features a fat sounding internal saturation algorithm and a sizzly post overdrive with two modes to choose from: cold and hot.

Polyverse have released a new free filter plugin, Filteron. I normally wouldn’t write about a simple filter, but I did want to at least share some news about a new freebie. This one sounds particularly sweet, the cutoff is nice and smooth, and resonance goes into self feedback range. The drive alone sounds very nice and is a reason to grab Filtron. Things get a bit more interesting when you open the modulation window for each control. All controls can be modulated by either the input audio, or signals from sidechain inputs, this modulation happens at audio rate, meaning you can get some insanely squelchy modulated filter tones. The UI is a bit on the skeuo-alien side of things, but it’s simple and looks nice. There’s not a whole lot more I can say about a filter, give it a try, it’s free and sounds great. Filtron has me wishing Polyverse would create a synthesizer, this filter built into a synth with the right oscillator and enough of that Polyverse flavor could actually be really interesting."

The library contains 114 presets divided into categories.
For many weeks we refined every detail to make the experience as good as possible
Very warm and analog sound that you will double check if the sound is generated by Virus Ti

How it was made ? The idea ?

First we created a several basic presets close as possible to the original from JUNO 106/60.
But we didn't want to stop there.
We wanted to go a little further, exploiting the capabilities of Virus Ti, but not exceeding a certain limit.
The last stage is polishing every detail of the sound.
In addition, in the package you will find a lot of very interesting and inspiring sounds.
They sound massive, wide and very analog.
Definitely a must-have for all fans of classic sound.

video upload by Behringer

"Got an Itch Could for a New Eurorack Module?

Scratch and tap your way to some really out-of-this-world sounds that’ll make your audience go “How are they doing that?”

The Behringer RADAR is a contact and pickup microphone module in Eurorack format.

• Create unique sounds by scratching and tapping the RADAR surface
• Collect acoustic waves surrounding your modular case including loudspeakers
• Connect external microphones, electro-acoustic instruments such as guitars or line-level signals
• High-quality amplifier with up to 50 dB of gain for a wide range of signal sources"

Start scratching and tapping your way to unique and amazing sounds with the Behringer RADAR! Beats, ambient noises and otherworldly sound effects can easily be achieved thanks to its contact and pickup microphone plus, the RADAR can be readily integrated into any synth setup.

The RADAR sports a pickup microphone placed right underneath the surface of the module. Simply tapping or scratching the textured surface will convert those into signals that can be patched into any module of your choice to create ambient, echoey sound effects, creepy bangs or any sound you can imagine!

The pickup on the RADAR is even sensitive enough to capture any surrounding acoustic waves be it a knock on your modular case, a snare hit from your drummer or even sounds coming out of loudspeakers. Those sounds can then be converted into gate or envelope signals and tweaked with the Gate Sensitivity or Attack and Decay controls respectively.
