Patching Panda Punch MG - first patch

video upload by John Schussler

"I'm not entirely sure what to call the Punch MG. It's a mixer, it's a VCA, it's an envelope, but also it's none of those things. It's its own thing.

Try this: you put some sounds into it, plus some triggers. It has a decay envelope for each channel that you can adjust so that you can make those sounds percussive. That's part one.

Then you add each channel to the Mute group (or don't). This doesn't really mute the channels in any sense, it ducks them. The signal on one channel affects the envelope of the signal on another, and vice versa.

At least I think that's what's happening. In any case, it makes a group of sounds work really well together.

Phase modulation - 4 examples

video upload by John Schussler

Update: new video with 4 examples.

"Here are four VCOs that all offer phase modulation in one form or another:

Weston Precision Audio: PAO Phase Animated Oscillator
Patching Panda: Operat
WMD: Phase Displacement Oscillator
Joranalogue: Generate 3

I'm trying to get my head around how their implementations differ, and what the ultimate effects of those implementations are on the sound.

There's one more phase modulation VCO I have that I didn't include: the Mindphaser. It's a complex oscillator with a very different architecture, so didn't seem like a good fit. I did a couple videos on that a while back, if you want to hear some of its phasing.

Sequencer: Stochastic SIG. Modulating VCO: Intellijel Dixie II+

Bonding With the E-RM Polygogo (with Rainmaker and Norand Mono)

video upload by Red Means Recording Ambient

"I wanted to get to know the E-RM Polygogo oscillator and see if it was for me. It's ok! Very pretty to look at! If you have room for it in your case, and like visual feedback, this is a super cool choice. E-RM runs through Patching Panda Moon Phase and then into Rainmaker. Drums are from the Norand Mono, which makes a surprisingly good little analog drum machine.

Ephemere | Dual CV Recorder | by Patching Panda

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"éphémère (french for 'short-lifespan') is a dual channel CV recorder that can record, sync, splice and playback two independent modulation sources. It supports unipolar and bipolar ranges, but also audio rate sources. It can record up to 4 secs of audio in 44,1K if you wish allowing access to some 'musique concrete' applications. Finally, the outgoing CV can be quantized to any (user)scale, providing a great musical CV source."

Chainsaw VCOs through Moon Phase Filter

Precarious333 Music

"Just a little test of Acid Rain Chainsaw stereo supersaw VCOs used with Patching Panda Moon Phase. Both are stereo so seems a good fit. All 3 voices of Chainsaw are being sequenced separately by 3 channels of Industrial Music Electronics Stillson Hammer mkII with the 4th sequencing Erica Synths Pico Voice in acid bassline mode through G-Storm Electro 101-VCF and into 2hp Delay. It's a pretty rich sound for so few modules. It helps that Moon Phase allows for enhancement of the stereo field, and I begin to apply detune to Chainsaw's VCOs at the 01:20 mark. Recorded into Ableton as 1 stereo and 1 mono track. Reverb, compression, and EQ added in post."

Patching Panda Moon Phase // Mid side based stereo Eurorack filter


"Here’s the new Moon Phase stereo Eurorack filter from Patching Panda. Moon Phase is unique in that it implements a mid side matrix to construct a stereo image (that you can manipulate) from a pair of filters. There’s 8 different modes combining different filter types, frequency and resonance controls plus frequency span and stereo image controls all with CV control. Modes can be switched via a trigger (or oscillator) to get more drastic rhythmic shifts and the left hand input normalises to the right input to create stereo images from mono sources, or you can process stereo sources with the independent inputs. Be sure to grab the free quick start guide below and check out the links. Cheers!

Drums with WFM oscillator and Decay-VCA like Punch and Hatz from Patching Panda

Dziam Bass

"Hi everyone.

Some time ago I recorded this one small movie why I like triggers like Four Bricks Rook from Shakmat Modular , WFM oscillator from La 67 and modules from Patching Panda like Punch and Hatz for my drums.

Kick based on VCO WFM plus trigger by Four Bricks Rook - a great module for me because you can record your own rhythms with your hand, Punch to the ultimate VCA-DECAY so it is great for kick when I shorten and send out my sound from the oscillator and Hatz as the name says it is a hihats sound module.

open and closed hat in one module. as you can see, some fun with freq and decay to show what colors this hat offers.

WFM is an oscillator based on the old Kobol synth from 1970 so its character is also cool.
Have a nice day and thanks for watching . ;-)"

Superbooth 20HE: Patching Panda - Moon Phase and Ephemere

Published on Apr 25, 2020 sonicstate

"Patching Panda were kind enough to hook up with Nick over the interwebs to show off their new stereo multimode filter Moon Phase. With 8 different combinations of filter types you can use the filter to enhance the stereo width of your modular patches.

As well as the Moon Phase We also got a look at their new dual channel CV looper Ephemere. This is a high resolution recording interface for your CV signals. You can record up to 4 seconds of CV and then loop this back, change the playback speed and scan through the recorded CV. When nothing is patched to the input the you can use the input knob as an offset/cv generator and record pot movements into the module."

Patching Panda Vibrazum // Triple Resonant Multimode Filter in Eurorack

Published on Aug 27, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Here we have the very lovely triple filter 'Vibrazum' from Patching Panda (it's the "v2"). It's a single shared input into a network of mutlimode filters with independent and global control, separate and mixed outputs and CV over all the parameters. From simple characterful low pass to weird formant triple peak vocal sounds there's a tonne of range in here. Although it's not labelled as a stereo device plenty of the patch examples here are stereo, using Vibrazum to create a stereo image for FX or general synth tones. So grab some decent headphones or monitors to hear the details in the sounds. Any questions just ask, thanks for Patching Panda for sponsoring this video and cheers for watching!

Patching Panda Hatz - Dynamic Analog Hi Hat (Eurorack Percussion Module)

Published on Jun 11, 2019 DivKidVideo

"After first checking out Punch (link below) here's 'Hatz' from Patching Panda. Hatz is a closed and open hi hat module for Eurorack based upon classic analog hi hat tones from a whole history of drum machines. We have two blend-able noise colours from white to metallic, envelope shaping, decay modulation, two filters with modulation, accent, external input, closed priority open hi hat choking, accents and more. It takes to modulation really well for a range of hi hat sounds and can also be a noisy quirky backend for a synth voice when you use an external oscillator too."

Lush triple filter & new triple VCO from Patching Panda // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 24, 2019 DivKidVideo

"The new Vibrazum from Patching Panda is a lush triple filter with 2 filters that can be low pass or band pass and a band pass filter in the middle. You can modulate the filters in unison or with individual cut off control, resonance etc and the input has a nice amount of drive to it too. Really lovely triple peak filter sound. Holograms in the new triple analogue VCO based around the idea of a single carrier and two modulators. Like the filter there's ways to control these collectively or individual and lots of modulation potential."

Patching Panda Punch // Dynamic VCAs, accents, envelopes + more for Eurorack

Published on May 2, 2019 DivKidVideo

"So here's the v2 Punch module from Patching Panda. It's two channels of envelopes and VCAs that add punch, dynamics and accents to your audio inputs or the envelopes you can patch out of it. You can input audio then process that through the onboard VCA using the decay envelope with CV over decay time, control over decay shape and a controllable addition of dynamics through the use of an accent input and level control. You can output the envelopes (two stage/two levels with the decay following the accent pattern too), invert them (or not) and patch those elsewhere for side chain and ducking effects. It's been a pleasure to play with and a great punchy addition to my patches giving my dynamics and more musical patterns.
