Pittsburgh Modular Local Parks Oscillator Demo

video upload by Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers

"Deep dive into the Local Parks oscillator."

Local Parks got its first mention back in May of 2023 during SUPERBOOTH23.

via Pittsburgh Modular

"The Pittsburgh Modular Local Parks is drawn from our waveform manipulation research where advanced approaches to wave shaping throughout the oscillator showcase new sounds and unique waveforms. A full compliment of robust waveforms and modulation options paired with unmatched waveshaping creates a truly modern analog oscillator.

Our in-depth experimentation has created pulse waves which can be manipulated in multiple dimensions utilizing both Pulse Width and Pulse Shift. Pulse Shift creates an adjustable “step” within the pulse wave to further enhance the harmonic content of the wave. The wave used to create the pulse can be switched between sine and saw for additional sonic variation.

The Blade Wave is a morphing saw wave pitched one octave above the core frequency of the oscillator that smoothly shifts back to the core frequency as it changes shape. This creates a chorus-like effect on the sound of the Blade Wave without ever falling out of tune.

A Binary Logic waveform further expand the distinct sonic palette of the Local Parks. First utilized in our Narwhal Cymbal module, this waveshaper uses analog binary logic to create everything from gate effects to atonal bell like tones. The pulse and blade waves can be summed with the binary output for even more complex results.

Local Parks includes a built-in voltage controlled modulator to handle the bulk of modulation needs. This ensures that Local Parks can be a dynamic oscillator that produces evolving, high harmonic sounds within any eurorack setup."

Neutral Labs Elmyra 2 - Drone Synthesizer // Demo, Tutorial and Opinions

video upload by Dexba

"SUBTITLES AVAILABLE (in many languages!) I've had the lucky chance to be able to check out the Elmyra 2, by Neutral Labs. It has a very interesting approach to performance and sound building: it looks easy, but it can get way deeper than you think. After playing with it for a long while, I decided to offer you a tour of its functions, plus my (unrequested) opinions, all in this desktop configuration. Since the video was getting pretty long already, even by just covering the basic functions, I decided to keep the eurorack approach for a later time, also because that would have prompted me to give even more (unrequested) opinions, and the possible combinations of modules would have been endless (except for the mandatory huge reverb!). In this video, I used the very good reverb on the Dirtywave M8 Tracker, which was very handy because of its 3.5mm jack and the capability of isolating just the active channel on the cable. I hope you'll find the video useful, in its "overview" part, and I hope the "opinion" part could spark some constructive debate."

Superbooth 2023: Between Machines - Qlocker

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Dennis from Between Machines at Superbooth 2023 about their latest module, Qlocker. This parametric trigger sequencer generates trigger rhythms and has five outputs which are generated depending on how the controls are set. The module has a Tempo and 16th note Swing. The module is all about performance and playability, with the blend output, mixing two probabilities that can be tuned to control the amount of activity you want. There is also a mask knob, which can thin out the sound in a musical fashion, and a button in the middle which loops the last bar. The buffer is a one-bar capture.

Clocker has been in development for over a year and was shown at Superbooth last year. The company has fine-tuned it over the last year and plans to release it in the next two to three months, hopefully in August or September.

Qlocker Price: 320-350 Euros"

Eurorack Essentials - Flip-Sides active Quick demo/review

video upload by Meska

"Realy quick demo of this nice rooting moduls , love it on rooting FX, inverting proccesing on mid/side , hard panning , switch clock ect

Product page/RTFM :

Thank you for watching.
My name is Meska of the statik collective . I've been making mostly "dark and expérimental" music for more than ten years now, i'v learn so much online, now it's time for me to share my knoledge, my exploration and this channel is a place to talk about the tools, sound design and techniques to make music with.

You can stream my albums and EPs at

If you'd like to support the channel​ consider buying music from bandcamp ;)"

1x dualswitch
2x 3,5mm Inputs
2x 3,5mm Outputs
for Audio and CV signals
Comes with 3mm Aluminium black front panel with signal white print



DEPTH: 15mm
Works great with every stereo audio signal:

Just change L + R signal with flip-sides and smile.

Works great with every CV, TRIG, CLK, GATE signal on:


Just change the rooting of two signals with flip-sides and get the most out of your existing eurorack system.
