Joranalogue Introduces Cycle 5 - New Compact Powerhouse VCO

For those attending SUPERBOOTH, you'll find Joranalogue at our their spot: booth W435 in the gymnasium.

Coming in Q3 2024.

A small Eurorack oscillator that packs a punch: that’s the best way to summarise Cycle 5.

At its heart lies a refined high-stability triangle core voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), with performance matching or exceeding that of much bigger and costly oscillator modules.

Instead of a coarse frequency knob, a 7-position octave switch is provided. This in combination with a perfect fifth transposition switch and factory pitch tuning, makes Cycle 5 an exceptionally straightforward and musical VCO to use: simply centre the fine tune knob, and the module will be instantly tuned to reference C.

Meanwhile, its dual precision volt per octave inputs add a great deal of versatility. For example, one could be used for pitch sequencing and the other as a generic exponential FM input, or both sequenced together for transposition effects—the dual inputs serving as a built-in precision adder.

Sporting all the classic waveforms, ranging from sine wave, triangle, saw and square/saw, as well as a hard sync input and low frequency oscillator (LFO) mode, Cycle 5 makes for a real workhorse VCO. The novel trigonometric waveshaper results in a very clean sine wave, ideal for sub bass duty.

Cycle 5’s highlight however, is its vari-wave feature. By adjusting the vari-wave knob, the waveform on the matching output will smoothly morph from sine, to triangle, saw, square and finally a very narrow pulse. The vari-wave parameter can be CV controlled, up to audio frequencies for some intense timbres.

Equally at home as a modest modulation companion to big VCOs, as being in the spotlight in miniature or polyphonic systems, Cycle 5 might just be the most multi-talented tiny analogue oscillator yet.

High-stability precision analogue triangle-core VC(LF)O.
Octave and perfect fifth switches—all intermediate frequencies can be reached using the front panel controls.
Dual volt per octave FM inputs.
Outputs: sine, triangle, saw, square/pulse (PWM) and vari-wave, smoothly morphing between all waveforms.
Reset (hard oscillator sync) input.
Wide frequency range: 48 mHz (20 seconds) to 3.7 kHz.
Don't waste time tuning: pre-tuned for 0 V = C.
Impedance-compensated outputs with dual-colour vari-wave LED.
Trim potentiometers accessible from the front panel.
Precision-milled 2 mm anodised aluminium front panel with high-resolution, non-erasable graphics.
Bullet-proof design: polarised power header and MOSFET protection circuit.
Includes 16-to-10-pin Eurorack power ribbon cable.
Premium mounting hardware: black screws, black nylon washers and matching hex key.
High-quality components and assembly; designed and made in Belgium.

As always check with your favorite dealers on the right for upcoming availability of all new modules and synths.

Joranalogue Audio Design DIM 2 / CV controlled dual dimmer (including LED lights) / a quick overview

video upload by BRiES

"This video is for anyone wondering about DIM 2, the new nifty cv controllable dual dimmer module by Joranalogue Audio Design... and yes: the module also includes the nice gooseneck LED lights you see in the video.

There's not a lot to tell about the module, yet I somewhow managed to talk about it for almost 18 minutes straight. You're totally welcome."

TUTORIAL / STEP 8 and SELECT 2 for a sequence with 1 random step

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"In a previous patch walkthrough video I said that there's a way to create a sequnce with STEP 8 but use SELECT 2 (and COMPARE 2) to make one (or more) of those steps random. This is the tutorial video to watch if you want to find out how to do exactly that.

I hope you find it inspiring.

Tip: combined with the technique explained in the following video you can really create interesting harmonic changes for one or several voices in a patch, with a touch of random so you can easily afk without anyone ever knowing:"

PATCH WALKTHROUGH / STEP 8 / doing a lot of 'sequency' things with just one sequencer

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"It's something that I find myself doing often: making a short sequcence, then transposing it every x amount of steps while using the cv that's transposing the lot as a pitch source for a bassline (works great for a chord generator as well). STEP 8 is a wonderful tool for this as it gives us both a sequence and cv for transposing and a way to randomize the progression within set boundaries. That - amongst other things - is what this video is about."

PATCH EXPERIMENT / a few ways to create random gates that are on the grid

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"I always call them 'random gates' in my videos - but what I'm in almost all cases mean are just clocks with a probability setting of less than 100%. There's specialized modules that do the work for you, but with some clever patching you can create them yourself from some kind of clock and a chaotic or random voltage.

In this video I explore how to use ORBIT 3 and the AND logic output of COMPARE 2 to create on grid randomness. I have a go at using STEP 8 for the same goal as well.

PS: in some cases you can use a vca as a boolean logic AND gate, so if you don't have a COMPARE 2 you should still be able to figure out how to use the first technique in the video."

Volume & Panning | Schlappy Patching with Stazma

video upload by

"Episode 7 for Schlappy Patching!
Today we talk volume. Might seem boring but changing the volume of a sound over time result in dynamic, and it is actualy quite awesome! Also if you can change the level of something on one side of the stereo field, you get "panning" effect, without the need of a pan pot on a stereo mixer (you need two VCAs instead). Anyway we'll explore things volume related, using a drum mahcine and some sounds generated by the Three Body, mostly using Nibbler for stepped modulations.

Have fun watching!"

PATCH EXPERIMENT / exploring processing external sounds with DELAY 1

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"Usually 'Karplus Strong' is used as a term for a certain type of synthesis, using ultra short delays to create string like resonators. I've found that when you just run a sound through a processor like that, it adds a wonderful gliss of resonating frequencies. I honestly don't know if this is just the same thing as phasing/flanging but it sounds interesting to me. DELAY 1 is a great tool for this as its short delay times lend itself really well to this type of Karplus Strong processing.

Check out the video if you want to watch a longwinded experiment on this subject.

I hope you find it inspiring.

PATCH / ROUTE 4 / arps & melodies / sounddesign exploration

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"The 1V normalized routing inputs on ROUTE 4 make a lot of sense when you start using ROUTE 4 to change up an existing sequence, by either precision mixing the 1V/oct pitch cv with ROUTE 4s output or by using an additional V/oct input on your vcos (luckily GENERATE 3 Exp. FM inputs are nearly perfectly calibrated to accept V/oct signals). Using ORBIT 3 as a master control for all the switching on ROUTE 4 makes for a chaotic but controlled course of pitches."

Patch Tuesday | Compare 2 | Comparing Sequences

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"Welcome back to Patch Tuesday, a video series where we demonstrate the endless possibilities of the Joranalogue system!

Have you ever wanted to accent specific notes in your pitch sequence? This week, Frits explains how to easily do so with Compare 2.

Mult your pitch CV sequence, send one copy to your VCO and another to Compare 2's input. When the pitch CV is within your chosen window, a gate is generated. You can use this gate to, for example, open an extra VCA. This way you can create a send/return effect path that's enabled whenever the target note is hit."
