Cosmos Quencer Live Example1

video upload by centrevillage

"Two Cosmos Quencers controlled by a joystick (Doepfer A-174-4).

Cosmos Quencer has external cv / gate / mod inputs.
So you can modulate the internal sequence by the external cv/gate signal.

It's so fun!

Top 3 Favorite Modulation Sources Picked by Our Pals Omri Cohen, Stazma, and The Unperson.

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Modulation is one of the most important aspects of a modular synthesizer: it's what makes your sounds move and change over time. It's the way that you take control of your sounds. It's the way you bring sounds to life.

So picking the right modulation sources for your music is critical—but there are a LOAD of options out there. We reached out to a few of our friends to hear what THEIR favorite modulation sources are, and how they use them in their music...and this video is what they had to say.

The gear from the video:
Omri's pick—Malekko Voltage Block:
Stazma's pick—Tiptop Buchla 266t:
The Unperson's pick—Make Noise Maths:

Eurorack: Malekko Richter Anti-Oscillator into Xaoc Devices Belgrad + ModBase 09 Mk2

video upload by lucafrancinimusic

"I've got a few new juicy modules today, so I've set up a little jam with all of them. The Jomox ModBase 09 Mk2 is the kick, the Anti-Oscillator is the bass which goes to Belgrad filter and to TipTop VCA. A first envelope goes to Belgrad and a second envelope from O_c goes to the VCA creating the fake sidechain for a nice pumping and separation between kick and bass.
M-32 is the synth lead and Rings the percussive part.
This video is NOT sponsored by any of the brands visible and mentioned throughout this video."

Insane Probability Sequencing with the Malekko Varigate 8+

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"For this project, I opted to make more of a drum-based piece. I wanted to specifically use the powers of one of the most powerful modules in my system, which is located in the bottom right corner. It's known as the Malekko Varigate 8+. It is an extremely complicated gate and CV sequencer with 8 gate channels and 2 CV channels for pitch sequencing, as well as additional secret digital menu settings like probability, which is an important aspect of my patch. I set my master clock to provide a consistent beat to Varigate 8+. Then I trigger all of the different drum parts from the sampler with the Malekko's randomly produced patterns, so the patterns should not repeat very often, if at all. The fun began when I chose to use this sequencer for all of the components of the composition, allowing me to separate a signal from numerous gate outputs and CV outputs and transmit it to offer pitch and melody to the various oscillators that I used for this.
Mutable Instruments Plaits was the only one that wasn't getting pitch, as it was receiving various modulations that would make it relatively meaningless to input pitch into because the changes created by it wouldn't be as obvious and needed at the moment. Instruō Cruïnn was the single oscillator into which I fed the CV output from Malekko. It is a phase-modulated, stereo oscillator having through-zero outputs that can be stereo, summed, or separate sawtooth outputs per voice. As you change the dispersion of the voices in the module, you get that pitch diffusion effect that becomes more pronounced near the finish of the composition.
During the performance, I am continually altering the number of high frequencies fed into the VCA and pre-effects to keep the stereo feel beautiful and dynamic. Such tasks are generally carried out using my left hand. My right hand is activating all of the different parts of the piece, which aren't necessarily pre-defined because this is an improvised composition, but I have some notion of what I'm going to do before I do it. Only when I need to modify the volume of the stereo oscillator inside the VCA before the 'drop' part of the time stop and then that riser and time start sequence do I use both hands in one activity? Everything comes to a halt when I hit that yellow button because everything in this patch is clocked to a master clock, so if I make it stop, everything stops. I'm also patching something more than a minute in, and it was basically just the output of a slow LFO, which would modulate the knob that modulates the parameters together inside of the Qu-Bit Chance module, which is what I'm using to control the majority of the modulation in this patch, which is changing the fm and cv inputs on two of my oscillators. By randomizing that value, detecting rhythm fluctuations throughout the song becomes even more difficult.

Sequential Prophet 5 Rev3.2 Owned By Dwayne Goettel Of SKINNY PUPPY

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.

via this auction

You might remember the recent break-in at Malekko Heavy Industries posted here, and on Malekko.

Joshua Holley is selling his Sequential Prophet-5 Rev3.2 previously owned by the late Dwayne Goettel of Skinny Puppy to recoup funds.

From the lising:

"Ugh, this suuucks...but here we go.

Up for sale is Dwaynes old P5 Rev 3.2 (no MIDI)

I purchased this a while back non functioning and restored it back to playing condition. I left the keyboard chassis and keys with black spots from touring back in the day so it's super cool to see. The keys aren't perfectly level..for some reason I decided to keep it as close to original as possible...just functioning perfectly. cEvin signed it and dated 2003..its still there and puts a smile on my face when I play it. The only reason I'd consider selling this is due to a theft at my shop..there will be lots if instruments up for sale. Read about it in the link below."

Theft at Malekko Heavy Industry

Joshua Holley of Malekko Heavy Industry wrote in to let us know there was a break-in at his shop. The thief stole about $65,000 worth of personal items. The insurance company won't cover most of it, so he is offering modular art pieces for sale to hopefully recoup some of his losses.

The following is a repost from his site. Please share this with others.

"On August 7th 2022 two males broke into an adjacent business in my building and managed to make their way into my shop via a shared back door. The thieves stole many personal items, sentimental gifts from colleagues, friends, things I will never see again, about $65,000.00 worth of personal items stolen. After almost 2 months dealing with Insurance companies, ultimately they offered little help, citing a convenient loophole stating since stolen items were personal property the business policies won’t cover most of it, giving me about 12% of the loss.

Out of the many stolen items, the one that hurt the most is a one of a kind Minimoog used by the band Skinny Puppy. Anyone that knows me knows how important of an instrument this is and how devastated I’ve been since the break in. With the exception of a Facebook post hoping to flush the thieves out I haven’t been able to talk about it much, watching the video surveillance of the guy carting it out sickens me, I’ve had to watch it several times, each time waiting a week or so in between viewings because I’m so pissed.

A month ago I came up with an idea to right a wrong so I decided to make a set of art based off the stolen Minimoog. My thought is that to have a set of art based on such an iconic synthesizer would make a great conversation piece, look great on any wall, bring happiness to fellow synth nerds and help replace some of the items that CAN be replaced, and basically help turn the negative energy surrounding this ordeal into a positive.

I’m calling the set “The Greater Right of the Wrong” (see what I did there). I sourced a frame maker to make some custom frames in brown to represent the wood from the instrument, and then I had 5 individual pieces of aluminum made to size, brushed, and anodized. I will laser etch all 5 pieces with the blocks of the instrument. They will look like what’s pictured except each edition will be numbered and have “GROTW xxx/200″ small in the lower corner.

The frames are approximately 12” tall and side by side touching the set is about 2ft 10 inches, and about 3ft with nice spacing in between. This is a pre-order. I have approved the metal and frame samples and now they need to go into production. I anticipate shipping at the end of December. This will be limited to 200 sets, numbered in order sold, and once they are sold I will not make any more.

Thank you in advance to everyone who supports this endeavor. It’s been an extremely personal project that I hope puts a smile on all our faces for years to come."

Marble Jam //Marbles/Subharmonicon/Mother 32/STO/Rings/Tides/Magneto/Maestro/Voltage Block//

video upload by Aleatoric Machine

"I’ve wanted to try this for a while. The two channels from Mutable Instruments Marbles are playing the two channels of Moog Subharmonicon, with a sound that reminds me of a Fender Rhodes, through Strymon Magneto. A couple different clocked LFOs from Acid Rain Maestro cause the pitches from Marbles to keep gravitating back to the tonic, with some jamming in between. Mutable Instruments Rings repeats a single note in a Euclidean rhythm coming from ALM Pamela’s New Workout, but modulating the structure causes the ringing to drift up and down from a fifth to an octave. Moog Mother 32 and Make Noise STO double on the bass line. When the melody finally comes it, it is Mutable Instruments Tides through Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl, Mood, and Dark World. Malekko Voltage Block handles the mix scenes, with Mutable Instruments Stages providing slew in between."

Eurorack CV Modulation Recorders

video upload by John Schussler

"Headphones on, please. This vid leverages the stereo image as part of the demo.

Modulation recorders are handy for coordinating modulation moves with a melodic or rhythmic sequence. You could also use a full sequencer, but in many cases that's overkill. These modules do the trick without too much complexity. (Though it must be acknowledged that the Voltage Block does market itself as a sequencer of sorts.)

These four all offer at least 3 channels of cv recording. Some are limited by steps in the sequence, some by memory. Also note that the level of quantization (simplifying the smooth recorded curve into something more stairstepped) varies from module to module. Lastly, note that they output different voltage ranges, which in some cases can be customized.

All work well for their assigned purpose, no duds here.

Source audio: Dixie II+, using an Morgasmatron as the target of modulation. I added a pulse from a second Dixie II+ to give me some rhythm to move along with. Modulation with no rhythm to it sounds a bit uninteresting in this context.
