Orpho VLPF - Eurorack Vactrol Low-Pass-Filter

video upload by HOX808

"The Orpho VLPF is an active low-pass filter module for modular synthesizers in the Eurorack format. It is a fully resonant low-pass filter that uses vactrols as controlling elements for the filter frequency and resonance. The two potentiometers for frequency and resonance set the desired filtering. The more they are opened, the more light falls on the two LDRs. By changing the control voltage, frequency, volume, and resonance change simultaneously. The potentiometers allow the adjustment of the light impact to achieve fine gradations. The two LEDs are exposed to provide a visual representation.

A fully resonant filter shows significant amplification at its resonance frequency, leading to a sharp peak in the frequency response. The quality factor (Q-factor) determines the sharpness of this resonance: a high Q-factor implies a sharp resonance, while a low Q-factor results in a more damped resonance. Fully resonant filters can also tend to oscillate in the absence of an input signal when set to maximum amplification, a phenomenon known as self-oscillation.


A vactrol is a combination of a light-dependent resistor (LDR) and a light-emitting diode (LED) housed in a common, light-tight enclosure. Increasing the LED brightness decreases the resistance of the LDR. This can be used for various circuits that rely on variable resistances. These components are known for their "soft" sound, as they are linear elements that do not cause distortion.

Module Overview:

- VLPF with vactrol control
- Fully resonant filter
- Self-oscillation possible
- High-quality potentiometers
- CV input
- Two LEDs behind the front panel for visual representation
- Amazing organic sound, ideal for drum snappy sounds and bongo sounds

Enclosure and Power Consumption:

The VLPF is 3U high, 8HP wide, and 18mm deep. Power consumption: +12V, -12V | 40mA."

Drone FM resonant filtered noise

video upload by Ghost In Translation

"This is Drone 2.0, 4 voices with individual 1v/oct pitch control, each voice has a sine oscillator and a resonant filtered white noise that can be mixed together and controlled by CV, the mix of the 4 voices can also be controlled by CV. Finally it is also possible to control the FM range of the 1v/oct inputs via CV, allowing nice FM at audio rates in place of 1v/oct sequences.

**THIS VIDEO IS SPONSORED BY PATCHING PANDA** they have funded the creation of this demo video.

"Etna is an advanced triple control analog multimode morphing filter, meticulously designed for precise and dynamic sound shaping. It allows for rapid or smooth transitions between diverse filter settings, known as snapshots.

Each snapshot comprehensively defines all of the filter’s parameters, which can be adjusted either swiftly or gradually. These transitions are controlled through an applied voltage or clock and triggers, with the flexibility to use up to eight distinct stages for creating complex filtering effects in a variety of audio applications.

In addition to its morphing capabilities, Etna incorporates analog controls that enable real-time, expressive modifications to the parameters of each saved snapshot. This enhancement not only enriches the morphing process but also provides a tactile, live experience that adds significant depth and nuance to the audio output, making it a powerful tool for both studio and live performance settings."

The fascinating world of PULSAR SYNTHESIS with Plume from hieroglyphic

video upload by DivKid

"Have you heard of Pulsar Synthesis? If not come and learn along about what it is and how to use it and if you have then here's a refresher and some patch examples with Plume.

Plume is a new pulsar synthesis oscillator, think of it like a micro sound oscillator or modulator from new company hieroglyphic. Pulsar Synthesis is like granular synthesis but with synthesised waveforms treat as individual pulses rather than using samples like granular synthesis does. Any questions leave them in the comments.

This is one of my "3 patches with" style demos that distills things down to just 3 patches for a more condensed video. If you'd like to see something more in depth, or further patch examples, let us know in the comments."

"A fully-featured pulsar synthesizer for the Eurorack modular system. Using principles adopted from the Curtis Roads white-paper Sound Composition with Pulsars, Plume presents an approach to sound and rhythm that is somewhere between oscillator, granulator, and clock generator.

·96kHz/24-bit stereo outputs.

·Range switch (HI/LO) for use as VCO, LFO, or both.

·Formant and Cluster controls for complex output spectra.

·Continuously variable output wave shapes.

·West-Coast style wave folder.

·2 types of output masking for advanced spatialisation.

·Continuously variable pulsar window shape and amount.

Arcaico DOGON drum synth x3 #eurorack #modularsynth

video upload by Arcaico Instruments

"Dogon is a 3-voice percussive module and because of the modulation inputs it gives the possibility to create many sounds.
In this video you can listen to 3 units of Dogon for a total of 9 voices (not all of them were used all the time) some voices were modulated and others only triggered.

Arturia beatstep pro was used for the percussive patterns, and some external modules to modulate some of the voices. With 3 units we have unmeasured firepower.

A bundle at a special price will soon be available on our website."

"Dogon is a module for creating a multitude of percussive sounds.

With Dogon you can create from the classic and iconic kick, tom, snare drum and hi-hat sounds of the most famous and historic drum machines or you can unleash your creativity with the available modulation inputs that allow you the creation of a multitude of sounds.

Dogon is divided into three different voices/sections and each voice has a Mix control for the master level out plus each voice has a separate dedicated output (these outputs have no distortion).

A distortion on the master level enriches the final sound and thanks to a potentiometer for handling Dry/Wet (also controlled by voltage) you can decide how much distortion or dry sound to have.

In this module we have tried to offer as many modulations as possible precisely to give the user the opportunity to experiment and create the sound he or she prefers.

Dogon is compact but very powerful and the user can create both powerful and destructive percussive sounds for Techno and classic electronic percussion"
