Spectral Processors - 296t vs Sputnik vs Fumana vs Bark Filter

video upload by Stazma

"This is a BIG one. I will try to compare the four main big Buchla inspired "Spectral Processor" modules:
The Buchla & Tiptop 296t, the Sputnik Spectral Processor, the Verbos Electronics Bark Filter and the Frap Tools Fumana.
You will see they all sound and behave quite diferently and this is why I guess this video might of some interest.

Have fun!"

Patch Tips & Tricks for Improving Basic Waveforms!

video upload by The Unperson

"In today's video I explore some synthesis techniques and patching tricks for getting the most out of basic waveforms. I had a big list of ideas for this video but I'm not great at being concise so here is half of them, and the other half will be released in a part 2 video out next week! Hope you enjoy.

Sputnik Spectral Processor with Behringer 1050 demo. sequencing individual band outputs.

video upload by brandon logic

"starts with white nose as the sound source. direct out with some reverb.
0:52 two note sequence on the tip top/buchla 258t oscillator.
the two note sequence is clocked x8 so it changes every 8 steps on the 1050.
2:10 I then add a second oscillator getting a different sequencer into the second spectral input, so some 1050 steps are one oscillator and some are another. and i Switch to an LPG routing with more reverb and delay.

Complex oscillator comparison - Sputnik vs. Verbos

video upload by John Schussler

"These two complex oscillators are almost identical in functionality
because they're both modeled after the Buchla 259 complex oscillator. (I'm assuming. Their marketing info doesn't call out the 259 explicitly.)

As a result I figured it'd be an interesting head-to-head comparison to see how their sounds differed, given the very similar architectures.

I'm not going to try every combination of controls, just going to get a general idea of how each sounds with the same basic settings. Not a lot of talking, either, since the modules are fairly straightforward.

Sequence: Stochastic IG. Envelope: Zadar

Sputnik Variable Waveform Generator

pic via @Noisebug

"The Sputnik Variable Waveform Generator is a Buchla inspired discrete triangle core oscillator. One major change is the inclusion of a hard sync vs. the typical triangle core soft sync. The module features 5 dedicated audio outputs (sub, pulse, sine, saw and triangle) and various animation controls such as built-in waveshaper, saw animator and drive circuits with attenuation amount inputs. It also has a vco/lfo switch, both linear and exponential FM inputs with attenuators and very good tracking."

For those that may not know, Sputnik is Roman Filippov's (of Black Corporation) other brand.
And a video overview by DivKid:

video upload by DivKidVideo

"Here's the new Variable Waveform Generator from Sputnik Modular. It's a discrete Buchla style triangle core oscillator with individual waveshaping animations, sub oscillator, linear and exponential FM, hard sync and LFO mode.

In this video we take a look at 19 patches to break out of the basics with your oscillators, looking at more advanced patches that demonstrate a variety of synthesis/oscillator functions and look at adding dynamic animations to your sounds right at the core of the patch. While this video focuses on the Variable Waveform Generator specifically you can apply these patches to other oscillators and wave shapers, so give them a go and feel free to let us know in the comments what's working for you.

Lorre-Mill Double Knot vs Sputnik Spectral Processor

video upload by NOISEBUG

"Taking a trip down the amazon with the Lorre-Mill Double Knot and the Sputnik Modular Spectral Processor.

In this patch we were trying to explore what it would be like to recreate a scene from the amazon using electronic instruments. We have native people drumming, hippos groaning and owls howling.

The Sputnik Spectral Processor is great at isolating frequencies and being able to bring those frequencies in when needed. The optional routing and feedback possibilities are truly endless. While the Double Knot holds the Rhythm and is feeding its sound sources through the Spectral.

Both these products can be found here -

New Buchla Programmable Octal Signal Source Model 360 Coming from Roman Filippov

"Soon. Can’t tell much more details yet"

Roman Filippov as you know is the man behind Sputnik Modular, Black Corporation, and various Buchla DIY projects. Black Corporation is focused on full blown desktop synths including Deckard’s Dream, Kijimi, Xerses, as well as some erurorack adaptations of various components of these synths. Sputnik focuses on Roman's line of primarly west coast inspired eurorack modules. Roman has also offered one-off creations of classic designs for the DIY market.

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

Update: "It has stereo, quad outputs as well. Will be 8 voices, 3osc per voice with built in enveloppe and VCAs - fully 24osc synth (shouldn't the VCA be LPG on the OG?). Inputs wil be via digital buss from 221r. You'll have to have both modules to make 360 funtcionnal. Also coming this summer. 300 computer open source module is also in the works."

An update from Roman sent my way via Soviet Space Child.

"The 360r will have 15 programmable outputs with full control from the 221r (standard midi messages), it uses a 16-core mcu/dsp by XMOS and 24b/216KHz 16ch codec by Cirrus Logic.

The 221r will have midi and usb i/o and 4x digital ports for communication with the other modules. It also uses a combination of accelerometer and gyroscope for the bend function. also i hope to decode 200e I2C buss, it already has it connected."

Hammer Blow


"Echo Fix EF-X2 tape delay experiment with a more rhythmic sequencer parts.
All of it generated from the 5U large format modular. What I find especially appealing from the delay is the way it blends in without stomping all over the source signal. Also the steady nature of the new high quality drive motor and tape shuttle is evident when turning off the motor and starting it up again. No glitching from the mode knob when changing through head taps. All in all I think the Echo Fix is the best tape delay ever built. The reverb is a mix of true spring and the digital delay. Besides the Echo Fix the only other gear outside the 5U is the Canyon delay in Octave mode for the rapid slap kick coming from the Sputnik Voltage Controlled Slope module."

Cave Giants


"A live performance with the 5U large format modular synthesizer.

Starting with an Encore Electronics frequency shifter and Yusynth Arp 4072 filter. Modulations to the frequency shifter from a Sputnik WCRS, and an Ian Fritz DDVCO in harmonic sequence mode.

The bass sequence is driven by the STG Soundlabs suite with two VMS and one TMS, a pair of EG's, a Switch module and the Time Divider. Clock timing from Cubase via dinsync to the Time Buffer. Four Q106's into a Q150 transistor ladder filter and an Oakley SVF.

The melodic sequence is a pair of Q960 sequencers to a pair of Q106's through an STG Sea Devils filter and Q107 SVF.

The percussive tick sound is a Sputnik voltage controlled slope.

Delays and reverbs include Behringer DD400's, Empress reverb, Strymon Blue Sky, Electro Harmonix Canyon, TipTop DSP with Valhalla Shimmer and Modcan 73B.'
