Easel Euro Improv 1 27 21

video by Todd Barton

"It turns out I followed the sound and it was intense. Fair warning :-)
I just recently put back my Benjolin into my Euro skiff which feeds into the Easel Aux In. I had no idea what the sound would be as I slowly raised the LPG2 on the Easel. It was intense so I responded accordingly -- following a different sound. It can get loud and gritty. Modules involved in the Euro skiff are Buchla Red Panel 158 Dual Sine/Saw Osc, Instruo 1047 resonant filter, Makenoise Mimeophon, Epoch Benjolin, Intellijel Planar 2, MA 3 channel mixer and of course the Easel."

Panamint Valley Sunset [Episode 145]

Published on Jun 2, 2019 CatSynth TV

"Sunset in the Panamint Valley just after a flash flood along California Highway 190. The Panamint Valley lies to the west of Death Valley proper but mostly within the boundaries of the park. The two valleys are separated by the Panamint Range. Two days after this watery scene was filled, the area was bone dry with dust storms.

Original music by Amanda Chaudhary, composed entirely in the Locrian mode (scale of white keys starting on B).

Benjolin! [Episode 82]

Published on Aug 16, 2018 CatSynth TV

"In this video, we explore the Benjolin module from Epoch Modular.

'The benjolin is a multifunction synthesizer designed by Rob Hordijk. The module consists of four separate function blocks: two VCOs, a state variable filter and an additional circuit, invented by Hordijk himself, called a rungler. This particular arrangement emerged from his efforts to design a synthesizer that was, as he puts it, "bent by design". As such, the module functions according to principles of chaos theory, where short to long sputtering patterns spontaneously transform themselves, at times, gradually, at others, quite suddenly, morphing into new pattern doublings and bifurcations. '

Delica - a delicate patch for Eurorack synthesiser

Published on Sep 30, 2017 Luke Killen

"Making delicate sounds with Noise Engineering's Basimilus Iteratus as root sound source. filtered via a Epoch modular Twin Peaks amplitude modulated with a Make Noise Maths under the careful control of a Tiptop z8000 and a 4MS PEG. Melodically sequenced by a Make Noise René."

flatchouse - a 120BPM acid house patch for eurorack synthesizer.

Published on Aug 18, 2017 Luke Killen

"This is a flatulent acid house beat. The acid is utilising a WMD/SSF Spectrum which is being modulated in a few ways by the SSF Ultra-Random Analogue filtered through a Epoch Modular Twin peaks VCF. Sequenced by Rene. I really wanted to give the Acid line a Dry breathy sound rather than a classic wet acid style. The noise from the Ultra Random Analogue helps give that character. The twin beaks also has some of the Ultra-Random Analogue output from Channel A at a high rate to mix with the Spectrum."

The "Drippy Trippy" Epoch Modular Twin Peaks Filter

Published on Feb 25, 2016 Derek Morton

"Watch an XAOC Quad LFO modulate this highly resonant Epoch Modular Twin Peaks. It is important to note that the nothing is getting patched to the Audio Input of this filter and you are hearing the output of the filter without any FX or additional processing.

On occasion, I plug the output of a Benjolin into the Twin Peak's 1V/Oct input to demonstrate how you can dramatically modulate the filter tracking.

Super Tasty Noodle Fun!"

Playing with Epoch Modular Benjolin

Published on Aug 30, 2015 AudioCentralMagazine

"Epoch Modular has revamped the original Benjolin circuit conceived by Rob Hordjik in the Eighties. A great havocking module for a different approach at sound sculpting. On this video, Benjolin out goes straight into MakeNoise ErbeVerb, for a slight touch of aural pleasure."
