Sputnik Dual Oscillator [Episode 136]

Published on May 2, 2019 CatSynth TV

"We take a closer look at the features and sound quality of the Dual Oscillator from Sputnik Modular. It is a particularly smooth and timbrally rich oscillator with a myriad of internal and external modulation opportunities.

For more information, please visit

"The Sputnik Dual Oscillator is 100% analog with both generators tracking v/oct, includes a timbre waveshaper plus harmonic dial, two FM inputs, 6 outputs including “Final” out, unipolar CV out and a modulation bus that allows for immediate and extreme timbral control.


Two Oscillators – Gen 1 with V/Oct, CV input, VCO or LFO mode switch, Triangle, Saw or Square selectable output and FM input. Gen 2 with V/Oct, CV input, FM input and external sync input.
Modulation control section including switches for AM, FM for Timbre bus modulation, CV input for modulation control amount, manual modulation index control and a sync switch making Gen 1 sync to Gen 2.
Harmonics section controls waveshaping of timbre and includes CV or manual controls for Symmetry and Order
Timbre section (primary waveshaping section) includes CV or manual control
Output 1 section includes 3 outputs: Triangle, Select (Triangle, Ramp, Square) waveform and unipolar CV output
Output 2 section includes 3 outputs: Sine, Square and Final (master output)"

SELF PATCHED! Sputnik Four Tap Delay // Circuit abuse & DNB Reese Bass

SELF PATCHED! Sputnik Quad Function // Pitch bends & sub audio blips

Published on Jan 28, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Here's the Sputnik Modular Quad Function Generator and Trigger Source. As it's a quad module it gives us plenty of looping envelopes, some that oscillator some that are triggered envelopes all patched back and feeding back on themselves for some complex function generator action.

SELF PATCHED! Is a series of videos filmed back in August of 2016 (so they look a little different but that direct audio is still clean and sweet … or noisy and mega harsh as the patching dictates. The series aims to explore and educate (myself and yourselves) about how these modules and circuits behave and how we can abuse and manipulate them outside the ‘norm’ by feedback patching them back on themselves. Treat the audio as “sample fodder” pick out little hits and cuts for percussion, odd spattering horror soundtrack sound beds or long feedback tones perfect food for a sampler to play polyphonically. It’s all just with one module patched back on itself, stack cables were my friends here."

Modular :: Almost Forgotten :: Sputnik Modular and Mutable Instruments

Published on Oct 12, 2018 Mike Thomas

"I've been super busy lately, with a new job, and recovering from a sewer backup, among other things. I finally returned to this patch and decided to just record me jamming with the elements (heh) of it. It's long and rambling, but what else is new?"

Devil's Pizzicato :: Sputnik Drone :: Dual Oscillator & Four-Tap Delay and Dual Crossfader

Published on Jul 25, 2018 Mike Thomas

"Mainly the DO and Four-tap delay being modulated by various other Sputnik modules. Reverb is from 2hp Verb.

Patch Notes
The main soundmaker here is the Sputnik Dual Oscillator. It is set up with AM and FM modulation, and its Timbre and Order parameters are modulated by the Fluctuating Random Voltage channels of the West Coast Random Source (WCRS).

The Sputnik DO's final output is sent to the Four-Tap Delay/Dual Crossfader via the Make Noise LxD. Each of the delay's outputs are either fed-back into the extra inputs of the delay's mixer, or fed into a channel of one of the crossfaders. A couple of channels are sent off to the Quad VCF/VCA for filtering before being either fed back in or crossfaded. The filters help to keep the feedback under control (mostly, unless opened wide). The filters are modulated by a couple of channels of the Quad Function and Trigger source, which themselves are modulated by each other and the WCRS. The Crossfaders are modulated by the slewed S&H of the 1U Noise Tools module.

The delay's time CV is being modulated (sometimes) by a channel of the 5-Step voltage source. The modulation is most obvious when I crank up the attenuator on the module.

The delay's FM input is receiving signal from a Sputnik Oscillator's Waveshape output via the Valve Multiplier (VCA), which is modulated itself by Stored Random Voltages from the WCRS. I hand-wiggle this at least once.

The same Oscillator is filtered and sent to the mix as a drone, with the filter modulated by the 1U Intellijel Noise Tools S&H (slewed)."

Leviathan :: Sputnik Modular Drone Patch

Published on Jul 22, 2018 Mike Thomas

"A drone patch heavily featuring the Sputnik Four-Tap Delay/Dual Crossfader module (with no crossfading :-)).

Patch Notes

Main Sound
Primary sound source is the Sputnik Dual Oscillator in AM & FM mode, receiving v/oct from Sputnik 5-Step Voltage Source. Timbre and Harmonics are being modulated by separate channels of the Sputnik Quad Function & Trigger Source. Modulation index is modulated by another channel of 5-Step Voltage Source.

Did I mention this is an all-sputnik patch? Well, it is, except for the reverb, which is a 2hp Verb.

The Final output of the DO is sent to Quad VCF/VCA in "Combo" (LPG) mode.

Delay Patching
Th output of the QVV is sent to input channel #1 of the Sputnik Four-Tap Delay/Cross-fader and multed to a channel of the 6-channel MIxer. Each of the delay taps is sent to a different channel of the mixer, with stereo panning applied. Two of them are on the CV-pannable channels, and these are modulated by the West Coast Random Source Fluctuating Random Voltage channels.

The secondary output of the 1/2t tap is patched into the Valve Multiplier (VCA) as the input source, with the Waveshape output of one of the Sputnik single oscillators as the modulator, The resultant two-quadrant multiplier output is sent to another QVV channel in filter mode and back into input #2 of the Delay. The QVV filter is modulated by another channel of the QFTS.

The secondary output of the 1t tap is fed back into the #3 input of the Delay.

The square output of the single oscillator above is sent into another channel of the Valve Multiplier, with another channel of the 5SVS modulating it.

Bass is the Waveshape output of a second Sputnik Oscillator with v/oct from the final channel of the 5SVS, fed through the WCRS Integrator (portamento/slew) circuit.

Production Notes
L/R modular-level signals from the Sputnik 6-channel Stereo Mixer were multed and sent to a) 1U Headphone Jack, and 2) Intellijel 1U I/O module, which send signal to the case-mounted 1/4" jacks. Signal was routed on to the Sony PCMD50 digital recorder.

Sputnik Modular Performance :: "No Regrets"

Published on Jun 3, 2018 Mike Thomas

"A modular synthesizer performance carried out on a Sputnik Modular system. All sounds, and most "control" done with Sputnik modules.

I traded out the WMD Tool-Box for 2hp Div (really needed a clock divider!), 2hp Delay, and 2hp Tune (quantizer). This opened up the case for more interesting rhythmic stuff and allows the Disting to take on other roles when needed (though, ironically, it didn't get used in this patch).

In order of appearance ...

Percussion/rhythm is pink and white noise alternated by Sputnik Selector and enveloped by a channel of Quad Function and Trigger Source (QFTS). Decay modulated by a West Coast Random Source (WCRS) Fluctuating Random Voltages (FRV).

First voice is Sputnik Oscillator Sub output, which is eventually mixed with the Main/Waveshaped output. Waveshaping parameter modulated by WCRS Stored Random Voltage (SRV). Notes "sequenced" by WCRS Quantized Random Voltages (QRV), and quantized by 2hp Tune (major scale). QRV index hand modulated. 2hp Tune's "Bias" parameter modulated by 5-Step Voltage Source (5SVS). Final mixed output sent to Quad VCF/VCA (QVV) in LPG mode and sent to a second channel of QVV in Filter mode, also manually wiggled.

Second/bass voice is Sputnik Dual Oscillator Sine and Final outputs mixed and enveloped by QFTS and QVV. Envelope is also modulating Timbre. Modulation oscillator is in VCO mode and AMing the main oscillator. Modulation index, Harmonics Order, and Timbre manually increased over the course of the piece. Notes sequenced by one channel of 5SVS. 5SVS is advanced every other trigger from 2hp Div by multing the Div channel to WCRS S&H Pulse 'splitter'."
