Buchla Music Easel - Low-Gain | Repair testing


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Took far too long to get all the parts required to fix my Easel, and only and glue to actually fix it. I can finally take it home! One of the preset controls on the 218R is messed up but I’ll fix that later. Time to have some fun!"

Dual Audio Mixer - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular - Serge Modular


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Dual Audio Mixer pcb is a go! Just need panels to arrive!
In this patch I’m just mixing 4 negative slews, and one ‘73 vcf in vco mode.. totaling a 6 voice drone. Because the mix bus is passive (buffered output of course) the signals fight against each other creating some really rich timbres!"

Flip your arps! Generating complex arpeggios with soft sync


video upload by Electrum Modular

"To begin phasing out my Behringer Neutron (the first piece of electronic gear I ever bought, back in 2018), I’ve just acquired two new oscillators: Intellijel’s Dixie II+ and Shakmat’s Banshee Reach. Both feature a 'soft sync' option, whereas Neutron has only hard sync. Oscillator sync is generally touted for its distinctive timbral effects. I’ve never seen any discussion of its use at lower (sub-audio) frequencies. But looking at its effect on the waveform, I reckoned soft sync might generate some interesting arpeggios. Here are the results of my experiments!

NOTE: the folded shape of these arpeggios led me to also experiment with using a wavefolder (Intellijel’s Bifold). This worked – and has the advantage of preserving the period/frequency of the arpeggio, and thus the time signature. But as you increase the fold, the arpeggio begins to sound too chaotic. I guess there is a sweet spot (or range) between a bog-standard arpeggio and a formless sequence of notes.

Other modules used:
Make Noise's Maths
Intellijel's Scales
Mutable Instruments' Plaits
Expert Sleepers' Disting EX
ALM's Pamela's New Workout
Low Gain's Short Bus
Alright Instruments' Chronoblob"

Braided Orgone


video upload by X180R19

"Headphones or good speakers recommended

Playing around with sequencing the Orgone Accumulator module (Bugbrand format) and Tresses (Bugbrand format Mutable Instruments Braids). Modules built by @batchas.

Orgone Accumulator in Drum mode
Tresses in HARM mode

Korg SQ-1 sequencing.

Delay and Reverb effects from the 1010 Bluebox.

@LowGainElectronics format jumbler to get everything hooked together."

NCOM prototype working - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Took some trace hacking, but the NCOM is finally working. Just have to rev the PCB and order panels. Will also be doing dual comparator and Schmitt trigger I/O boards and Panels to support the main board as it’s a multi function pcb!"

‘73 Filter gets a massive upgrade - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Well I finally fixed my only complaint about the 73 filter… at high resonance settings it falls apart and clips to the rails. No clean sine wave when patched to oscillate…

Well that’s all fixed now… :-D and now I absolutely love this filter even more than before!!"

Variable Bandwidth Filter Prototype 2 - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Corrected some simple mistakes and have the VBF behaving much better! First half is with single oscillator (Squarewave) and two simple modulation sources. Second half has two square wave oscillators mixed into the input with same modulation sources."

Lunchbox Voice Prototype gets patched ! - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular


video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Had a shop visit from the talented @helenastndc all the way from Spain/Sweden yesterday! We had a great discussion about synthesizers, design/diy and education. She got a little time to patch on the lunchbox voice system prototype on my test bench. We didn’t get a chance to get a proper recording of it but I fired it up where she left it and grabbed this recording of it this morning. Just turned a couple of knobs during the recording to see what sonic journey it would take! Hope you enjoy! Headphones recommend for full fidelity!"
