DivKid Showcase | Mutes | Ochd | Rnd Step | Ochd Expander | Ochd + Ochd + Expander

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"One of the first voices I heard when I started modular in 2018 was Ben DivKid Wilson's and it's been my goto channel for learning a new module ever since. The DivKid modules are simple, affordable and small, but offer something that wasn't there before they were released. I used them in almost all my patches, often off-screen or underexposed. In my first Ochd video (January 2020) it doesn't even show. With the release of the Ochd expander I realized how important these modules are for my case. This DivKid Show is a contribution to the contributions Ben already made to the modular community. For those who are new to modular it's cool to have all modules in one video (except Stereo Strip, I don't have it). The shots from his videos are used without kind permission but I am sure it's OK. As always I am not affiliated with anyone or anything.

The opening music is an adapted remix of one of Ben's youtube music library tracks (empty moons of Jupiter), free for everyone to use on videos."

Make Noise & Mood

video upload by Aleatoric Machine

"An ambient-ish eurorack modular synthesizer patch (with pedals!), featuring:
Make Noise 0-Control, XPO, QPAS, Mimeophon, Maths, modDemix, LxD & XOH
DivKid/Instruo øchd
Strymon AA.1
Chase Bliss MOOD mkII & Dark World

All of the sounds in this patch originate from a single VCO — the XPO — sequenced by the 0-Control. The percussive voice is the stereo square wave output into into the QPAS, then the Mimeophon. The filter envelope comes from the envelope output on the 0-Control. The gate output for the last step in the sequence on the 0-Control strikes the !!¡¡ input on the QPAS. The XPO and QPAS are modulated by different LFOs from the øchd. The smooth voice is the mono sawtooth output into the the 12 dB filter of the LxD, then the LxD’s 6dB filter, then the AA.1 to interface with the MOOD and Dark World pedals. The 12dB filter envelope comes from Maths, triggered by the gate output from the 0-Control. The 6dB filter is controlled manually with an offset from Maths. Both voices go through the XOH directly into my camera (listening to the final mix, it could have used a limiter, but oh well).

I start with the MOOD 100% dry and the 6dB LxD filter completely closed, so all you hear is the square wave and delay from the Mimeophon. I slowly open up the 6dB LxD filter and increase the amplitude of the filter envelope on the QPAS. Then I bring in the wet channel of the MOOD in reverse slip mode, tuned up a fifth, which introduces some harmony and counterpoint. I play around with the MOOD mix and the filters for a while, then turn up the clock on the MOOD before bringing in the loop channel, also in reverse, for more harmony and polymeter. Then I start bringing the filters back down, while increasing the mix of the MOOD. I turn the clock back down and turn the filters down and the mix all the way up until all you hear is the backward loop from the MOOD. That’s it!"

Waves // Beads as a wavetable synth through the Instruo Lubadh

video upload by Mega Modularis

"For this week’s video I tried using the Mutable Instruments Beads as the only sound source, with nothing plugged in Beads becomes a wavetable synth, which I then modulated and fed into the @instruo Lubadh, before manipulating those recordings and feeding them back into Beads and Monsoon by Big T Music, as well as my trusty @MAKEN0ISEMUSIC Mimeophon delay. This resulted in a pretty interesting ambient patch I think, with some nice use of the time control on the Lubadh, and that lovely reverb-rich granulation of Beads and Monsoon, what do you think? Anyway sit back and enjoy! MM.

Patch Notes:

Voice: Mutable Beads, Instruo Lubadh
Modulation: ALM Pam’s, @DivKid Ochd
Audio FX & Processing: Instruo Lubadh, Mutable Beads & the Big T Music Monsoon"

SUPERBOOTH 2022 DivKid Stereo Strip

video upload by sonicstate

"DivKid Ben introduces us to Stereo Strip his new stereo processing module with Befaco.

Ben has re-imagined the Hex Mix system creating a stereo module with DC-coupled inputs and outputs that handle audio or CV. Being a stereo strip, you’ll find amplification, EQ, panning and level control, but with added voltage control for increased functionality within the Eurorack modular synthesiser
environment. At the bottom of it all is a reassuringly large level knob.

Available now. Price: 223.85 euros"

New Divkid Stereo Strip - A Channel Strip For Eurorack

STEREO STRIP // Stereo processing for Eurorack with EQ, CV pan, VCA and more

NEW DIVKID MODULE!!! video upload by DivKidVideo

"I’m proud to present to you STEREO STRIP. My next module made in collaboration with Befaco. Stereo Strip is a stereo EQ, VCA, panner, distortion, mute & line level input and/or output interface for external gear.

Stereo Strip builds upon the well trodden paths of studio channel strips expanding them for musical and creative modular use with voltage control. Simply try swapping out simple VCAs for Stereo Strip to enhance your patches with EQ and voltage controlled panning. Or get creative and check out the patches below for highly shapeable distortion hacks, mind bending stereo ring modulation, CV routing, feedback waveshaping and more."

Divkid Stereo Strip - A Channel Strip For Eurorack
video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Matthew (aka EZBOT) shares an overview and demo of the Divkid and Befaco collaboration, Stereo Strip.

Stereo Strip takes the idea of a channel strip and makes it modular. We hope that by bringing this long-established component of the audio engineering world into the Eurorack environment and by adding CV control over its key parameters that you will find new, creative ways to use it in your patches!

It features stereo inputs and outputs for audio or CV with EQ, voltage controlled panning, stereo VCA, performable mute and input/output level switching for Eurorack or line level uses. Abusing the input level switching allows for some musical, modulate-able and highly shapeable distortion sounds too.

Stereo Strip was designed to be a creative part of a modular patch. Creating
stereo images from mono sources, shaping and modulating existing stereo
images, synthesising stereo pseudo ring modulation, sweetening FX with EQ or drastically wave shaping your oscillators, creating send FX routings with benefits or it can simply be used as a channel strip at the end of chain in a patch.

The addition of line level gain boosting (for the input) or reduction (for the output) allow it to work as a stereo input or output interface for external gear with the advantage of the VCA, panning and the EQ to shape the sound. Experiment with bringing external gear into the Eurorack format and then shape and modulate those sounds them on the way in!

Try patching Stereo Strip anywhere you would place a VCA in a system and/or explore its EQ and voltage controlled panning, which are rarer additions to the sound sculpting options for the Eurorack format.

DivKid / SSF Rnd Step Eurorack Module Jam and Patch Walkthrough

Perfect Circuit

"DivKid teamed up with SSF to make the RND STEP module. We used the RND STEP to modulate parameters on both of the voice modules in this patch. The RND STEP is basically six noise generators going into six sample and holds with some clever normalization so you can generate six random modulations with one trigger.

In this patch we used the SSF Entity Percussion module to generate all of the drum sounds and the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter as a voice sequenced by the Make Noise 0-CTRL. The XAOC Batumi and ALM Pam's New Workout clock everything. We used the Future Sound Systems Gristleizer Filter to add some screeching resonance that can be switched in and out with the Afrorack and Ali Modular OR Switch. Everything is mixed together with the Cockpit.

Divkid's RND STEP overview and demo at Patchwerks!

Patchwerks Seattle

"RND STEP is a high performance, 3 channel sample and hold module, comprising of 6 unique sample and hold circuits in just 4HP.

Each channel features two internal analogue pink noise generators, and two sample and hold circuits split across unipolar and bipolar outputs.The unipolar output always samples its own noise source for a stepped random voltage between 0-5V. The bipolar output by default samples it’s own noise source (for -5V to +5V stepped random). However, you can override that connection with the sample input. This allows for sampling external audio or CV signals, and it can sample voltages anywhere between -10V and +10V with the sample input.

RND STEP will operate at slow trigger rates with highly extended hold times, ensuring it holds the voltage with minimal droop, but it will also operate up through audio rates for destructive downsampling FX for audio. When triggered at audio rates RND STEP outputs downsampled and clocked noise tones from the internal pink noise generators. These can then be used for modulation, percussion or sound FX.

Trigger input 1 will normalize across all 3 channels, meaning a single trigger can give 6 unique random voltages, of which 3 are bipolar and 3 are unipolar. The combination of both ensures you have the right voltages in the correct ranges for the sources you wish to modulate.

NEW DIVKID MODULE // 'RND STEP' with Steady State Fate // 6 High performance Sample & Holds!


"Here we have the new (third) DivKid Eurorack module made in collaboration with Steady State Fate. RND STEP is 6 high performance analogue sample and holds split across 3 channels in 4HP. There's 6 analogue pink noise generators, unipolar and bipolar outputs, high accuracy sampling, long hold time, trigger normalisation for lots of stepped modulation from single triggers, audio rate performance for downsampling and modulated noise tones. I'll leave the video to do the talking and as always I hope the video provides you with lots of ideas to apply to your own systems too.

DivKid Ochd w/ Manis Iteritas | LFO Chaos

Published on Dec 29, 2019 Nostalgic Ruckus

"Been waiting for something like this for the skiff. Luv my clock dividers and multipliers and this kinda does it with LFOs. Cranking that rate knob is a beautiful thing. The Manis with all the patch cables is being modulated by Ochd only. The other Manis output is plugged into the E440 filter to tame some unwanted harmonics but also add some resonance when Ochd gapes the envelope. Attenuating Ochd's outputs with Bored Brain Splix. The CV input on this thing is crazy cool when self patching it just didn’t do it on this patch."

Announcement NEW DIVKID EURORACK MODULE // Meet ochd made with Instruo

Published on Dec 18, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Hello hello, here's my second eurorack module øchd or ochd. It's pronounced "oct" as in octave or octuplet and as if by magic there's eight outputs on this module, an octuplet of analogue LFOs if you will. I often find I need more modulation, simple sources that will keep things moving and stop things getting repetitive. That’s why ochd was brought to life, to keep patches organically drifting and moving… and as it’s modular, we wanted an intuitive easy to use module with plenty of patchable tricks up it’s sleeves too!

ochd is a 4HP Eurorack module with eight analogue triangle LFOs. The outputs go from fast on the top output to slow on the bottom output. The default ranges are deliberate NOT synced. These are free running LFOs that were tuned by ear to be musical useful for a range of fast to slow modulations in a patch. Organic animation, drifting and musical phasing is the intention of the module. The rate control controls the rate of all LFOs globally and takes this into lower audio rates right down to 25 minute cycles on the lowest output. This can be extended even slower with CV, with the CV input and attenuverter on board and we can also track and hold the outputs with a negative CV, interrupting and holding modulation values with external gates of CVs. Another trick to take this from simple triangle shapes is to patch a spare output into the CV input and wave shape with feedback. Exponential curves, odd squares, stepped waveforms and more are available with some adjustment of the attenuverter and using different outputs to voltage control itself.

While patching a prototype at DivKid HQ Richard Devine said this was "the most organic little modulator ever" - lovely stuff!"

Mutes - the First DivKid Eurorack Module

Published on Feb 15, 2019 DivKidVideo

We have a new (and familiar) maker in town. :) Congrats to DivKid! I added a new DivKid maker label to the site. Don't miss the interview with BoBeats further below.

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** So here we have it, the FIRST DivKid Eurorack module. It's been a long journey (and and on / off casual one to start with) since I first drew up a rough idea and panel design for this years back but this super simple, but highly effective little module (if I do say so myself) is finally released! Now I'm not a circuit designer or manufacturer, which is why this took some time. But more recently I worked with Befaco to bring this to life so I'm proud to say that although this is a DivKid module the PCBs say "powered by Befaco" on them. There's tonnes of potential ways to patch and make use of this and nothing will make me happier than to see the module living in peoples systems for a long time. This is available as a DIY kit or PCB/panel as well as assembled. Check the link below for more information.

**CORRECTION** This is available as a FULL DIY KIT or PCB/Panel combo not a partial kit as I say at the end of the video.
