AE Modular: Making a Berlin School Track

video upload by The 5th Volt

"In this video I give a step by step tutorial on how to make a very simple track in the Berlin School style of electronic music. I'm using the Synthexplorer from tangible waves with only a few basic modules, so you should be able to follow along with pretty much any system (even Eurorack!)

00:05 Intro Track
01:08 Introduction
02:52 The Tutorial
22:42 Bonus: The whole track

All sounds from the AE Modular from tangible waves recorded using the Zoom H6 recorder and processed in Da Vinci Resolve."

Superbooth 2023: AE Modular Break The 100 Modules Barrier

video upload by sonicstate

"AE Modular made a strong impression at Superbooth 2023 with their extensive collection of modules, surpassing the milestone of 100 different modules. Robert, representing AE Modular, expressed his pride in the development and the growing inspiration from the community. Notably, they introduced the Reins and Cirrus modules, which are faithful clones of Mutable Instruments' Rings and Clouds respectively, offering a classic ambient duo in their format. Additionally, AE Modular unveiled a prototype sample player module that allows users to play 8-bit WAV files directly from a micro SD card, providing loop options and crossfading. Another exciting development is the introduction of a high-quality aluminum case, designed by Tom from KUA, which offers sturdiness, expandability, and the ability to remove modules on the fly without screws. AE Modular's commitment to affordability is also evident in their micro modules line, which provides simpler functionalities in a compact form factor.

The best AE MODULAR Sound Demo yet ... #TTNM


"Seriously, this is the best AE Modular synthesizer no-talking sound demo yet!

Listen at:
Click on each track's "info" button for liner notes and a setup picture.

All sounds are made with AE Modular systems, with only sequencing, editing/arranging and non-dominant FX allowed. So this modular synth music compilation will give anyone a great insight on how an AE Modular system can be used in an actual music making/studio context.

Check out the AE Modular forums for lots of fun discussion and information too:

I love to hear from you and talk about synths and stuff, so always feel welcome to post a comment or send me an e-mail to: ➤"

Smaller on the Inside! Music Studio Rebuild: A Look at My Latest Setup - Synths, Doctor Who, & More!

video upload by Robert Saint John

"It's my Holiday Special! I have some significant changes coming in the new year, so it was a good time to completely reorganize my studio office. This video is for you if:

- You like gear videos with lots of self-indulgent talking and no music
- You love Doctor Who and sci-fi toys as much as synthesizers, if not more
- You're curious about what gear I have other than my JUPITERs
- You want to see how *not* to acoustically treat a music studio
- You like to count how many times I say 'Ummm...'

Happy Holidays from this studio to yours, and may all of us have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2022! ~Robert"
