Loud Ripping Modular Synthesizer Lead Patch

video upload by John L Rice

"Turn It UP! 😁

Noisebug store in Pomona CA made a nice trade with me for some gear so I picked up a second Synthetic Soundlabs Tube VCA to do stereo patches with them, something I’ve wanted to try ever since I got the first one! The patch is pretty simple, just a MIDI keyboard into a Synthesis Technology MOTM-650 interface to create CV and gate voltages, a Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas Magnus VCO's audio output mult’d into the two SSL Tube VCAs, the separate outputs of a single STG Soundlabs Envelope Generator in 'Pyramid Blaster' mode modulated the Tube VCAs, and three outputs of a Marienberg Devices Sine Phase VCO is modulating the Cursus VCO via a couple Q125 signal processors."

Berlin School Electronica // Gotharman meets 5U Marienberg & Oakley Modular Synth


"Gotharman's Little Deformer 3, Gotharman's PolySpaze and my Marienberg + Oakley 5U Modular Synthesizer are having little Berlin School kind of synth jam session.

First, I patched up a typical analog synth sound with my 5U Marienberg/Oakley Modular Synth, which let me transpose the VCO and add fast FM with two switches.

I then programmed a 4 note sequence on Gotharman's Little Deformer 3 and sent it to the Modular via the CV.OCD MIDI to CV converter, which is easier for musical CV sequencing than the Deformer's own CV outputs.

The Linnstrument MIDI controller triggers the red Gotharman PolySpaze polysynth, which plays a morphable pad sound. Very simple, no MPE, etc. All audio goes into the Little Deformer 3, where it is mixed with the LD3's own sounds and processed with delay and granular audio FX.

On the LD3 there are three percussive parts playing and another 5 step sequence, which I fade in around the middle or so. All sounds can be muted, volume-controlled and even modulated with the mappable fron panel knobs. Of course, I also created a second morph layer, with a slightly different melody and changed FX settings, that produce more glitchiness and also tighter delay FX.

It was fun :) Let me know if you have questions in the comments below! Thanks for watching!

Creepy 5U Modular Synthesizer Sounds (Marienberg Devices + Oakley by Krisp1) #TTNM

Published on May 12, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Here’s a creepy, multitrack noise music jam in stereo, patched around the Marienberg Devices VC Multimode Filter A and VC Envelope Generator B modules.


My goal was to play my 5U Modular Synth on its own, which can be challenging as I don’t have any traditional sequencers in there. Right now I don’t even have a regular 5U VCA. But, thanks to the Marienberg ADSR’s multitude of gate outputs and a mixer, I could patch a simple CV sequencer together. The Marienberg Multimode VCF is not just used as a regular filter, but also as an analog FM Operator, thanks to its nice sine wave and pitch tracking. The VCO and utilities are Oakley MU and MOTM modules by Krisp1 and the reverb is a large Klangbau Köln Spring Reverb."

ANALOG FILTER BASICS! ... with Marienberg's VC Multimode Filter A #TTNM

Published on May 11, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Learn about common Modular Synth Filter Concepts with the help of Marienberg Devices's precision Filter & VCO. MORE INFO BELOW! :-)


/// TIMECODES: ///

10:41 Additional Info & Thanks!

Marienberg Devices Germany make high-end analog synthesizer modules, which are not just fun for making music, but also for use as reference devices for demonstration purposes. So apart from looking at the VCF's specific features, we will also learn about typical analog filter behaviours and use cases, which are applicable to filters of other manufacturers and formats as well (e.g. AE Modular, Serge Modular, Eurorack, dotcom Modular, etc.)."

Marienberg VC Multimode Filter - Audio Demo (no talking) #TTNM

Published on Apr 28, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"The Marienberg Devices VCF A is a 5U modular synth precision filter. Here's a no-talking sound demo :)

/// TIMECODES: ///
0:10 Low Pass Filter Sweeps
0:27 Resonance Sweeps
1:01 Cutoff Envelope Modulation (Static Wave)
1:35 Cutoff Envelope Modulation (Melody)
2:07 Band Pass Filter Sweeps
2:53 High Pass Filter Sweeps
3:28 Notch Filter Sweeps
3:52 Notch Structure

5:28 Filter Pinging
6:39 Self-Oscillation
7:31 Analog FM Synthesis
8:05 1V/Oct Tracking Analysis
8:55 Sawtooth Wave Filtering & Goodbye

Marienberg Devices Germany make high-end analog synthesizer modules and this filter really demonstrates this. Take the resonance knob for example, which is tuned in a way that turning it feels smooth in regards to the changing audio we hear. No dead spots or overly sensitive regions at the end of the scale. The filter also functions as a precise 1V/Oct sine wave VCO, offering a stable amplitude and incredibly quick settling time after pitch changes. So you won't hear glide effects between pitch CV jumps. This is important not just for musical playing of the filter, but also for analog FM synthesis, for which this module is great as well."

Published on Mar 28, 2019 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"At Thomann's Synth Reactor 2019 I had the unique opportunity to meet and talk to Steffen and Holger Marienberg extensively. I filmed an interview with Holger about the origins of the the company Marienberg Devices Germany, in which he also demonstrated some of their 5U modular synth modules. This interview was recorded in German language though, so I made this summary video here for my English viewers =)"
