Cycle Instruments Tetrachords and Expert Sleepers FH-2 (quick and dirty)

video upload by Martin Doudoroff

"This is just a simple example of using the FH-2 as an output expander for Tetrachords. In this case, I have the FH-2 providing pitch, gate and velocity from MIDI channels 3 and 4, which I have assigned to Tetrachords tracks 2 and 4, respectively. (Audio is just from the cell phone.)"

via Cycle Instruments

"The Tetrachords is a 4 track polyphonic CV & MIDI note sequencer for Eurorack systems.

Featuring extensive connectivity, the Tetrachords can act as a bridge between a modular system and the rest of a studio.

The unique, built-for-purpose interface turns a studio into a melodic and harmonic playground. Easily explore anything from unisons and simple melodies to dense note clusters, made-up scales and polytonal mayhem."

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"

ST Modular - KRAKONG (Duophonic Semi-Modular Sonic Voyager)

video uploads by Stefan Tretau

"KRAKONG is a duophonic generative synthesizer with a sequencer per voice, FM crossover modulation, an additional random modulation sequencer, one multimode filter with VCA, a buffered multiple and a resettable LFO. The design includes a collection of manual controls and connections for patching and CV control.

Each of the unit's two voices consists of a triangle and a square wave oscillator, a shift register sequencer, a decay envelope generator and a filter-based gate. In addition to the two synthesizer voices, which can be manually distributed in the stereo field, a third ring-modulated output of the two voices can be mixed to the main output. The tempo of all sequencers is determined by a clock generator, which can be controlled internally or synchronised externally to any voltage (audio and CV).

This musical instrument has a complete structure that allows for a wide range of sonic possibilities, from rhythmic drum patterns and tamed sonic chaos to textural and rough synth-sounds. The essence of this unit lies in the exploration of the interplay between the elements of the synthesiser, using the three sequencers and filters, manual controls and modulation patch points."
