Eurorack: Building The Ultimate Vibe Machine

video upload by

"Vintage, analog, tape, and character galore, this is my latest eurorack system with a breakdown and of all the individual modules with sound demos. I also go into my reasoning behind them and how I made a system where the total is greater than the sum of the parts.

I was fully intending on getting out of eurorack upon the realization that nothing I had built up until that point really compared with my favorite semi modulars, the Moog Matriarch and the Korg MS-20. I had also tried to make grooveboxes, but nothing compared to my Digitakt. But after selling almost all of my excessively huge collection of modules and synths, I thought I'd give it one last ditch effort..."

Introducing Qu-Bit Aurora: Spectral Reverb

video upload by Qu - Bit

"It's a reverb. Well...kind of.
Welcome to Aurora, a spectral reverb capable of a wide palette of sounds: from icy shimmers and whale songs, to alien textures and sounds you’ve never heard before. And likely, will invoke a hunger for exploration you felt when you first touched a modular synthesizer.

Whether you’re creating beautiful time-stretched tails, or cybernetic metallic effects, Aurora gives you control over how far from reality you want to be. By blurring these signals we can achieve cavernous reverberations and spectral artifacts.

Since Aurora’s sonorous response is entirely dependent on the input signal, no two patches will sound alike, lending itself to an infinite world of surprise and discovery.

Discovery. It’s why we are all here."

See the dealers on the right for availability. You can find additional posts featuring Aurora here.

Update: New pics added.

Welcome to Aurora, a spectral reverb capable of a wide palette of sounds: from lush caverns and whale songs, to alien textures you've never created before. And likely, will invoke a hunger for exploration you felt when you first touched a modular synth.

Aurora uses a phase vocoder audio engine which separates the input signal's time and pitch domains. By blurring these signals you can achieve beautiful time-stretched tails, or cybernetic metallic effects.

Since Aurora’s sonic response is entirely dependent on the input signal, no two patches will sound alike, lending itself to an infinite world of surprise and discovery.

Discovery. It’s why we are all here.

A portion of all Aurora proceeds will help the fight against shrinking ice caps and dwindling polar bear populations.

"Thanks for watching!
Build #2 is complete! This was a much easier build than the previous one, only took about 45 minutes with testing included, so this video is a quick one. With that, this filter sounds pretty nice, and I already temporarily replaced my Mutable instruments Ripples with this one for now. Cheers!
The background song is unreleased, will officially come out in late April when mastered.

Electrosmith Introduces the Daisy Patch Submodule DSP Platform for Eurorack

Press release follows:

Music tech innovators Electrosmith have announced a new DSP platform which promises to reshape the Eurorack landscape with powerful, high fidelity audio products called the Daisy Patch Submodule.

The Daisy Patch Submodule builds upon the successful Daisy Kickstarter campaign with a new dev board specifically catered to the creation of Eurorack modules.

MSRP: $39.95

The Daisy Patch Submodule is a DSP platform for Eurorack synthesizer modules. It features a lightning fast STM32 processor, high fidelity stereo audio codec, and enough RAM for 10 minute long buffers - all with standard signal levels and conditioning for the Eurorack ecosystem. Simply design your carrier board, and let the Patch Submodule do the rest!

Create your dream Eurorack module with the Daisy Patch SM!

Tech Specs:

- STM32 processor at 480MHz, 96kHz / 24-bit audio, RAM for up to 10 minute audio buffers

- Stereo audio IO, x12 ADC inputs ( 16-bit bipolar CV or potentiometer), x2 CV outputs (12-bit), x2 gate inputs, x2 gate outputs, x12 GPIO

- Flash firmware over USB via open source web programmer

- Support for SDDMC, SPI, UART, I2C, and USB

- FCC / CE Tested and Compliant

Getting Started Hardware:

Get started with the Daisy Patch Submodule quickly with their dedicated Eurorack interface, the patch.Init(). The patch.Init() is a 10HP Eurorack module that breaks out all of the Daisy Patch Submodule pins to jacks, pots, switches, and LEDs.

patch.Init() Product Page

Discover more at

The patch.Init() is our exploratory modular interface for the Daisy Patch Submodule. Open-source both in hardware and firmware, the patch.Init() is the perfect jumping off point for your next modular DSP project. From ethereal reverbs, glitchy processors, comprehensive samplers, and complex oscillators, the patch.Init() can be any module you need it to be. Looking to create your own commercial module? Our front panel design is completely open-source (MIT). Just create your interface, add the Patch Submodule to the back, and you are off to the races with industry leading specs in an accessible, affordable package.

The patch.Init() comes with x1 Daisy Patch Submodule.

Polyphonic synthesizer, first steps with DaisySeed (DIY MIDI module based on STM32, no arduino yet)

It's an embedded platform using the STM32 as a microcontroller including DAC, external RAM etc. To get a first impression I've created a little polyphonic synthesizer project using the Open Source DSP Library (DaisySP). In addition to that some voice processing etc. was required to get the synth working. At the moment I do not have a direct comparison to the ESP32. It is compatible with arduino but you can also just program with your C++ editor. The STM32 board library has been updated in arduino recently and caused compiling issues. Now I just worked with a makefile based project to get it running. I think soon an arduino implementation would be also possible. Finally the sources are basically the same (arduino does just the multi file compilation magic) References:"

Exploring the Daisy Patch Eurorack Module

video by Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Chris Barth of Allotrope IJK shares 3 original patches for the Electrosmith Daisy Patch.

Daisy Patch is a metamorphic sound environment capable of becoming an infinite variety of digital instruments. Patch is based on the Daisy embedded DSP platform and features quad 24-bit audio IO. The hardware itself is a blank slate ready to be brought to life with one of the many available firmware files which can be uploaded through our web programming interface. This library of instrument files includes samplers, granular processors, physical modeling voices, and more, and requires no special software to upload other than a web browser.

Custom firmware files can be created using Pure Data, Arduino, Max/MSP ~gen, or C++. Our template files will help you hit the ground running. When it comes to troubleshooting your programs, debugging is a breeze with the onboard OLED display and USB connectivity.

Whether you’re looking for a swiss army knife of DSP, or a custom audio platform for hacking, Daisy Patch will help you teach computers how to sing!

ElectroSmith Large Format NOISEBUG Demo

video by NOISEBUG

"Sound demo for ElectroSmith 3340 VCO and 2144 VCF."

5U - FM Drone

video by Precarious333 Music

"Testing out some modules (outside the case). Patch is an ElectroSmith VCO with linear FM from Q106A sine which is sequenced by a SympleSEQ. Saw out from ElectroSmith to Barton BMC034 Switched Resistor VCF (built by Lower West Side Studio) running 2 low pass filters in series. Barton BMC034 is modulated by Encore Universal Event Generator running through the inverter on Q155 with inversion modulated by an audio frequency signal from SSL 1710 5-PULSER which is processing the same Q106A FM-ing the ElectroSmith VCO, introducing a pitch heard as the accented notes. The inverter output is then fed to the Curver section of Q155 modulated by a second Encore UEG. Simple, right? Ha-ha!

Q155 Curver is a really great module. Works great to add uniqueness to modulation signals and audio alike. I'm sure I'll find a place for it in every patch.

A minute into the video I introduce an inverted copy of the sequence controlling Q106A into the Clock input on the Barton BMC034. This is an experimental input on a very strange filter producing unexpected results. In this instance we get a sweet spot that produces truncated versions of the sequence because the filter freaks out creating dead zones. I like that kind of thing. \ (•◡•) /

Things fall into chaos when I exponentially FM the ElectroSmith VCO by another VCO running a different sequence which degenerates into the noise at the end.
