Pushing the Limits: Creating a layered patch with Peak and Vector Sequencer

video upload by Novation

"Discover Peak:

In Novation Connects episode three, we connect our epic eight-voice polyphonic synthesiser, Peak, to the Five12 Vector Sequencer. Here we perform and create a densely-layered, sequenced, evolving single patch on the Peak using the Vector Sequencer by Five12. Pushing the limits of what you can create in one patch.

0:00 - Creating a patched sequence on the Novation Peak with Five12 Vector Sequencer
0:13 - Transposing sequences from the Vector Sequencer to the Peak
0:48 - Sending tracks, or parts, to the Peak via the Vector Sequencer
1:32 - Adding dynamics to the performance with Peak's LFOs and OSCs
1:46 - Utilising the Animate, Filter Frequency and Envelope depth on the Peak"

Intellijel Cascadia: patching Ring Mod into FX loop with Chroma Console

video uploads by The Synth Shed


1. Intellijel Cascadia sound demo with Vector Five12 sequencer (no talking)
Sound demo showing how to set up a basic patch and modulations (based on some of the start-up examples in the manual) - with CV pitch/gate controlled through the amazing Five12 Vector Sequencer to give us a driving techno line with lots of dirt.

side-note: I don't know if I was hallucinating after too much coffee, but by the end I thought the melody had morphed into the Star Wars Imperial March. WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE!
2. Intellijel Cascadia: patching Ring Mod into FX loop with Chroma Console
Fourth part of my initial Cascadia explorations, again using the Chroma on fx duties, but this time with the added textures created by patching the Cascadia's Ring Modulator into the FX loop. Tasty sounds!
3. Intellijel Cascadia x Chroma Console = 'Add N to (X)'
Building on the patch and sequence created for my first Cascadia sound demo, we take things further with the addition of the inspiring multi-fx unit Chroma Console from Hologram Electronics. The perfect pairing for creating experimental sounds - and if you slow the tempo you're in instant 'Add N to (X)' chunky synth groove territory. Once again driven by the Five12 Vector Sequencer.
4. Intellijel Cascadia x Chroma Console PART 2: Filthy fuzz bass!
Had so much fun experimenting with this killer combo in the first video, that I ended up recording another video just to show how dang low down and dirty the Cascadia can go with a little help from its friends (in this case, FX from the Chroma and sequencing via the Five12 Vector)

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Five 12 Vector Sequencer MK2

video upload by sonicstate

"Jim from Five12 showcased the Mark II versions of the Vector sequencer and Expander . According to Jim, the hardware revision includes faster, newer chips while maintaining the essence of the original sequencer. The panel design remains almost identical, with the Expander now condensed to 8 HP from 12. The software sees updates to accommodate the new hardware and additional I.O. features, with continued support for Mark I devices. Notably, the new Expander is compatible with older sequencers, and vice versa.

The Vector Sequencer 2 has an intuitive digital sequencer interface with analog-style controls, offering versatile MIDI and CV I.O. for extensive customization.

Notable software enhancements include doubled preset space, expanded parameter options, and innovative chance operations to create dynamic, evolving sequences. The Vector Sequencer 2 is set to release in June, *priced at $759 US*, while the Expander will be available for $289 US.

Slowly Learning The Five12 Vector Sequencer

video upload by John L Rice

"Just some baby steps as I learn to use the Vector Sequencer and integrate it into this system. The Vector Sequencer is just playing two chords and sending them via MIDI to the genXnoise dXeus machina (8 DX7’s in an 8 hp module!) and the MIDI thru goes to the Mutable Instruments Yarns which I’m selectively using to play four SynthTech based voices ."

Five12 QV-L Quad Variable LFO

video upload by Steve Turner

"Vector Sequencer, QV-L, nRings, Weston Precision Audio SF1, 4MS DLD

So really I am testing the ATEM MINI PRO and headset mic here. I think I got it close but when I started dialing the grit in using the LEVEL on the SF1 you can really hear it pushing (which is a good thing, but less good for video levels). This is fun."

Knobcon 2023 DivKid Vids

video upload by DivKid

"All DivKid videos from my trip to Chicago, USA for Knobcon 2023"


1. 73-75 era Serge in the black panel 'Quasar' system // Prism Circuits at Knobcon 2023
Here we meet Sky from Prism Circuits who takes us through what he offers in the 4U Serge format, specifically taking us through his black panelled QUASAR system which uses classic 1973 - 1975 era Serge circuits.

2. Uncontrollable Rhythms from Moon Cycles and beyond // Pet Rock at Knobcon 2023
Here's Jonah from Pet Rock taking us through his sell out, sold at cost, first Eurorack module 'Pet Rock'. The module uses moon cycle data and random number generations to create two complimentary or drifting rhythms of varying step lengths and pattern densities. It's a fascinating concept that could lead to "good days and bad days" for your rhythms.

3. QV-L a POWERHOUSE of a Eurorack modulation source // Five12 at Knobcon 2023
Here's Jim Coker of Five12, of numerology and Vector fame, taking us through his new QV-L 'quad variable LFO'. It's a real powerhouse of a modulation module with 4 outputs, multiple clocking and frequency options, internal modulation, random generators, customisable control/performance options, syncing to the Vector sequencer for additional program changes and lots more.

4. NEW way to WAVETABLE! with Alias Zone & Osiris // Chris Meyer & ModBap at Knobcon 2023
Chris Meyer of Learning Modular & Alias Zone has A NEW WAY TO WAVETABLE!

Chris has been working on a new X and Y based wavetable systems that does two fascinating things, firstly it "samples" his whole large studio system while keeping that performable and responsive in the ModBap Modular Osiris and secondly he's using harmonics and interval sets to create morphing tunings within those sounds too.

This wavetable pack will be released for free through the ModBap site in the near future.

5. A Modular Approach to Eurorack Mixing with BARTENDER & BARBACK // After Later Audio at Knobcon 2023
Here we have several new modules from After Later Audio from Knobcon 2023. Lenny takes us through Bartender, Barback and Cast Iron which make up a new expandable, modular approach to Eurorack format mixing.

6. Simple solid clock sync! The Missing Link & ML:2 (Ableton Link) // Circuit Happy at Knobcon 2023
Giving the demo without any audio to listen to is a big move. A bold move made possible by rock solid behaviour from the devices from Circuit Happy. We have The Missing Link Junior and ML:2 Eurorack modules that are both Ableton Link enable devices for not just clock sync and reset but bar position aware behaviours for triggering and syncing to the patterns too. Impressive all round.
7. Better Spring Reverb! (with more filter features than your filter?) // Bubblesound at Knobcon 2023
It was great to meet David from Bubblesound at Knobcon 2023. I've been a long time user of his modules and he's consistently made quality modules over the years. The upcoming Spring Reverb module looks at Spring Reverb options in existence and aims to make them better, a fully featured SEM style multimode filter is on the module so you can really shape what's going into the physical spring, changing it's behaviour and sound. There's on board feedback which David is leaning into in this video too for more experimental patching.

Knobcon 2022 Videos by Under the Big Tree

video uploads by Under the Big Tree
Looks like I missed these when they initially went up.

1. 1010 Music Fireball and Lemondrop Nanoboxes | Knobcon 2022
Steve Joslin of 1010 Music takes us on a test drive of the amazing Fireball and Lemondrop Nanobox synthesizers. Small but mighty, these synths take up very little room while delivering a lot of bang for the buck.
2. New Buchla Music Easel | Knobcon 2022
Nick Kwas of Buchla shows us the brand new and improved Music Easel, slated for release by the end of the year.
3. Knobcon 2022 Walkthrough
I'm in Chicago for Knobcon 2022, one of the finest synth conventions in North America. For those who are interested but could not attend, I did a simple walkthrough of the exhibit hall.
4. Therevox ET-5 | Knobcon 2022
We talk to Mike Beauchamp of Therevox about their new model ET-5.

Based on the Ondes Martenot, the ET-5 is an exotic and beautiful instrument, capable of vocal-sounding melody lines, as well as ambient drones and even noisy sounds. Truly fascinating.
5. Five12 QV-L Quad Variable LFO | Knobcon 2022
We talk to Five12 founder Jim Coker at Knobcon 2022 about his upcoming Eurorack quad LFO. The QV-L is an incredibly feature-rich module with four LFO's. Two OLED displays and in-depth configurability with a streamlined user interface make this module a true LFO powerhouse.

SynthPlex 2022: Five12 Vector Updates and QV-L Function Module

video upload by sonicstate

"The Five12 Vector Sequencer has a lot of fans - Daniel Miller uses it in his live and studio setups and many more. The firmware 3.0 is approaching and we got a look at some of the features coming with James Coker. He also showed us a new module - the QV-L which is a complex multi-function generator with LFOs., Envelopes and much more besides. With four modulation busses and a ton of configuration possibilities, it packs a lot into a single module.

This will be available end of the year with more to follow early next year priced at $379"
