Error Instruments Brinta - playing with my voice

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"Spent some time feeding my voice into the Brinta from Error Instruments and This is Not Rocket Science. It's a wonderfully weird and sometimes comical module that won't fit in your patch but will spill out awesomeness all day long."

Revisiting the Cloudbusting Organic from Error Instruments

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)

"After my recent Error Instrument unboxing videos, I decided to revisit the Cloudbusting Organic. I unboxed this cool little synth late last year and I've used it a few times but haven't really sat down to get to know it. It's actually a very cool device with some really interesting sounds inside. I managed to put this piece together using just the Cloudbusting Organic and a synth pad from Alchemy."

Punk resonator . Minimal. Bliep crunchy noisy texture . Just perfect.

video upload by errorinstruments paul tas

You might remember the Punk Resonator from this previous teaser post.

via Error Instruments

"The Punk Resonator:

A Powerful and Experimental Standalone Synthesizer

Are you looking for a standalone synthesizer that can create unique and experimental sounds?

Look no further than the Punk Resonator

. This compact box, designed in brickie format,

can be used as a drum or baseline maker,

or to create strange and unusual noises.

It's a mix between the legendary Atari punk console from the 80s

and an analog circuit that is created on a 556 or 555 step generator and a digital resonator.

The Punk Resonator has three different options and a modulator,

with a 3 LFO square sin random.

The randomness works with the loop lock function that can be used as a sequencer

with eight or 16 steps, based on the chaos theory.

There is an attenuator to change the control voltage to the different voices or CV input

, and there is a Lopes gate to make sounds short or drum-like.

The Punk Resonator operates on 9 volts center positive

and has a mono out.

It is compatible with standalone equipment like eurorack, Korg, and more.

This powerful machine has a lot of options and is a small experimental,

synthesizer. It's not made for regular sounds,

but rather for something different and over the top.

In conclusion,

if you're looking for a unique and experimental

standalone synthesizer, the Punk Resonator is an excellent choice.

With its mix of analog and digital circuitry,

three different options, and modulator,

this powerful machine is capable of creating a wide range of sounds

that are sure to impress. So why not give it a try and see what kind of

inc power cable

and 3 paths cables

experimental sounds you can create?"

Next Tuesday eurorack. Explain in children language.;)

video upload by errorinstruments paul tas

via Error Instruments

"This is a really interesting sequencer like instant music like the grids for melodies. πŸ˜‰ grtz team error


Tuesday the procedural sequencer was our very first TiNRS module. Now we bring you our next Tuesday.
NextTuesday is still creating melodies based on several algorithms and your input. We extended this Tuesday with a ROOT knob, we added more algorithms and we changed the LEDs.

The orginal Tuesday came around with live performance in mind. You can be noodling line over line and always return to the melody you make with NextTuesday. You can sync NextTuesday – full on or in division – with an external clock source up to 24 PPQN or set the beat manually between 20 and 240 bpm.


NextTuesday shapes melodies based on mathematical procedures better known as algorithms. We dove into music and came up with a number of ideas of how notes could be held in sequence. We now have 14 of them and a test pattern. The knobs and inputs give you hands-on control over various parameters, the dynamics of probability and timing. You design the sound while the melody continues.

The X and Y knobs let you tweak the parameters of every algorithm, changing the dimensions of the melody and giving you a vast mathematical space to play with.

You can change these pleasant arrangements of notes. You might modulate a range of octaves or the relative distance between the occurrence of notes, you can build melody decorations or walks and riffs that keep going. And this modulation might all change again when you select a different algorithm.

Eurorack granular synthesis module comparison

video upload by John Schussler

"I've had Beads for a long time but have never really gelled with it. More recently I've acquired Brinta and Mojave, so it seemed like time to come to grips with granular in general, and these modules in particular.

This is a *very* basic comparison based on me reading through the manuals and spending time wiggling knobs. Each module gets a first pass using a simple Pianophonic sequence, then some time with a more complex audio source using some acoustic material from my last CD, 'The Willow Ladder.'

(Available on Bandcamp at, I will note. Nudge nudge.)

I'm really just interested in seeing which one gives me more interesting results with less RTFM'ing. I'm not sufficiently impressed by granular synthesis in general to really grind through any opaque interface designs.

The Grainmakers Playlist

video uploads by Cinematic Laboratory

"This playlist features granular eurorack modules that all need to process the same reference sample. I hope this gives a good impression of what the modules can do for you. They're all different, they're all great."


1. Grainmakers Playlist Introduction
I've been working on a huge video over the last few days and when I reached 30 minutes I decided to break it up into a playlist. This is cool! I can make updates and add new modules as they emerge. It's not supposed to be the ultimate grain guide, but it's cool to hear all modules chew on the same sample and hear what comes out. It's easy to be impressed by a bad module with a great soundsource, or underwhelmed by an amazing module that need to process something unworthy of its grains. So it all comes down to what they have to offer. And there are no bad modules. It's great fun to hear how a standard concept can turn into completely different experiences. So this is just a short playlist introduction.
2. Mutable Instruments Beads | Grainmakers Playlist
In this episode, Beads needs to chew on a reference performance.
Beads is an effect, but it can process an internal wavetable synth on its own.
3. Qu-Bit Nebulae V2 | Grainmakers Playlist
Our next contender in the playlist is the Qu-Bit Nebulae. It may be a bit underappreciated, but wow. A unique feature is elastic audio for time stretching.
4. Qu-Bit Mojave | Grainmakers Playlist
Next, Mojave needs to chew on Sebastian Lexer's grand piano.
5. Loopers | Lubadh & Morphagene | Grainmakers Playlist
Loopers are often confused with granular synths, especially with the Morphagene. Loopers don't grain or spray, they're digital tape machines.
Sometimes, when you think you're into grains, you'd actually been looking for a looper. It's time to show the difference, so they're an important addition to the lineup.
6. 1010Music BitBox MK2 | Grainmakers Playlist
The BitBox may not seem an obvious choice for granular processing, but if this playlist were a competition, then BitBox MK2 would be the King of the Grainfields. Granular processing offers limited CV support in the current firmware, but the sheer processing power is almost an insult to the other modules. Fortunately, it can't offer the hands-on experience like dedicated modules.
7. Error Instruments x TINRS Brinta | Grainmakers Playlist

8. Melotus Versio | Grainmakers Playlist
It's a Versio. What can I say. Awkward, special, amazing and breathtaking. It's unique feature is no pitch control. While this sounds like a flaw, it's almost a musthave feature when you run notes, effects and chords through it. Don't touch the melody. Just make it grain. Top 3 module in my list. And if it doesn't fit your needs, install a different firmware! If you own a different Versio, give it a shot. Nothing creates techno atmospheres and backdrops like Melotus.
9. MISO Cornflakes | Grainmakers Playlist
This is the last one for today :). Still a few more modules to cover, but it's already a great list. Here's MISO Cornflakes chewing on the Lexer piano. Again, it's a totally different experience, because Cornflakes adds special harmonizing features and stacking of grains. No other module has it - as far as I know. It can make wonderful new sounds from something familiar.
10. Instruo Arbhar V2 | Grainmakers Playlist
I already made plenty of Arbhar videos, but this is the second V2 video. In this playlist, all granular modules in my collection need to process the same audio file so it's easy to figure out what they do. Now it's Arbhar's turn.
11. Clouds & Clones | Grainmaker Playlist
This playlist would not be complete without a tribute to Clouds, one of the first modules in Eurorack that brought grains to the case. Clouds was launched in 2015 and discontinued in 2017. But that wasn't the end of it. It's been revived and extended in many forms, making it one of the most successful modules in Eurorack even today. From a techical perspective, Clouds is no match for the modern grainmakers in this playlist. But from the perspective of production value it's still a super useful module, especially if you manage to install the Parasite firmware. It's easy to forget that granular synthesis doesn't need big buffers. Sometimes a small 1 sec buffer is exactly what you need to get that desirable classic granular stream.
12. Combinations | Grainmaker Playlist
I got a question if Lubadh and Mojave would make a good combo. I had no idea. I figured this whole playlist is still 1-dimensional. So I patched these two up and then and I just had to make this video! I am still using the reference track so you get a good idea of how big the sonic playground becomes when you combine any looper with any granular engine. Results may vary, but wow. The bottom of the Rabbit Hole simply has a doorway to the next one. And it always gets deeper than the one before.
13. ADDAC 112 | Grainmakers Playlist
I may have unintentionally kept the best for last. The 112 combines a looper and granular engine in one big module. This is the last entry in the playlist.
The 112 will return soon for a dedicated video with some carefully selected samples to play with.
14. I missed a few | Grainmakers Playlist
After finishing the 112 video I was confident I covered enough 'grainmakers' in this playlist. I doublechecked if Disting EX and Phonogene should be in it, but no. The third one definitely needs to be on it! It doesn't show up when you search for 'granular' on ModularGrid, but it immediately went to my personal top #2.

Errorinstruments Introduces Singularity Tropical Noise Eurorack Module

video upload by errorinstruments paul tas

Singularity talking with wobbler off

"Hey there! I hope you're doing well. I wanted to tell you about the new Singularity Eurorack module. It's truly something else! With its active and passive function, as well as open clock dividers, it offers a unique experience compared to other tropical noise modules. It can even work accidentally as a passive drum machine for experimental purposes. It reminds me a lot of NOON, the beautiful big drum Synthesizer from Landscape. Singularity also has a function that allows you to use a passive and active in-between soda sounds of an oscillator, resulting in a striking difference in sound when using 5 volts compared to 12 volts. You can check out this amazing module on Stay tuned for more demonstrations coming soon! Plus, it comes with a bag of capacitors that you can switch, and three patch cables. It's a beautiful and compact 16 HP module. Enjoy exploring its possibilities! 😊"

TitpTop Audio Art Octopus, ATX1 and Vortex, O/C module and Error Instruments White Rabbit

video upload by Luca Longobardi

"Another short session with the new TipTop Audio Art modules.
I was exploring the Poly Voice Management of the Octopus, the module that ‘conducts’ the three ART oscillators. In the first part, the simple arpeggio played on the Arturia Keystep is reproduced in order by the first ATX1 (Midi channel 1), the second ATX1 (Midi channel 2) and the Vortex (Midi channel 3). It is easy to follow the change by looking at the red LED that lights up on the modules or the ADSR that is activated on the O/C in the case of the first two oscillators. Things get interesting when you manually switch from Mono 8 mode (one midi channel for each oscillator) to Poly 3, Poly 4, etc. These modes are designed to use oscillators in polyphony, playing chords as you do on a polyphonic synth. By sending a sequence instead, the notes are distributed one after the other among the different oscillators which, with different settings, create an ever-changing melody. A very unique way to make a sequence more interesting I think.
The drone you hear comes from the TX-6 while the delay is the White Rabbit by Error Instruments."

Ornament 8 | Episode 01 | Patching Errors (featuring Error Instruments Cloud Busting)

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Ornament-8 is an organismic sequencer that's completely, I mean totally, different from any sequencer I know. I am starting this video with zero knowledge and at some point I just gave up. So welcome to episode 01! This episode is called 'patching errors' . After failing miserably with Pulsar-23, I wanted to find out if Ornament-8 would be able to sequence Error Instruments' Cloud Busting - which has pins. It worked very well and it's been a lot of fun."
