Mcdonald's song, modular synth

video upload by Meng Qi

"Chinese singer Eason Chan playfully changed the words of his love song to 'Mcdonald's is fantastic' @mcdonalds in a concert 16 years ago just for fun, and no-one-know-why it's suddenly gone viral recently, with many singers of varied styles imitating and recreating it online but none of them representing synthesizer players! That's why I made this to get involved in this exciting game."

Formants - Noise Lab Formantic and Mannequins Mangrove

video upload by John Schussler

"Noise Lab has recently released their latest module, the Formantic [see this post]. It's a "formant filter," which in this case means it's really three filters in one: a low pass filter plus two band pass filters. The cutoffs and resonances of all three can be set independently, as well as be controlled through a common cutoff knob.

I was curious both about its sound when driven by a standard VCO (e.g. Dixie) and how it would sound with the Mangrove, an oscillator designed to produce formants on its own. If one formant module is good, surely two is better, yes?

You be the judge.

00:00 Intro
00:20 Mangrove
07:20 Formantic w/sawtooth
12:20 Formantic w/distorted saw
22:09 Formantic w/Mangrove
26:46 Now with reverb and delay!"

Mannequins Just Friends as a Sound Source ✨ | Eurorack Ambient Jam

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Just Friends in FLOOM mode is incredible.
I’d like to spend few words for this really simple patch.
JF 1v/oct receives some randomic cv from uO_c, randomly triggered by my beloved @busy Pamela’s New Workout.
Plaits in chords mode (WTF) modulates the FM input on JF (WTF pt.2).
Monsoon for the long awesome reverb, modulated by a rampy LFO from @mutable Stages (Position).

Sometimes keeping it simple is the key.

Headphones. 🎧"

Just friends, Monome ansible kria, beads, STO | exercise caution

video upload by patchesinblue

"exercise caution

an afternoon exercise with kria sequencing whimsical raps justfriends and the makenoise sto with sparks from mutable instruments beads.

at one point during the performance, my entire arm covered the frame while i was adjusting the filter cut-off on the whimsical raps three sisters, so i included some amazing clips of the sky that felt right for the music for that section.

Worth the Hype? The Mannequins by Whimsical Raps Mangrove Formant Oscillator

video upload by pitch patch

"This is a demo of the Mannequins by Whimsical Raps Mangrove formant oscillator. I go through all knobs and show you three patch ideas.

Mangrove is an analog formant oscillator that contains a triangle-core with a dedicated square wave output and a shaped impulse-train generator output through an internal VCA and waveshaper.

Many of the brands in the world of Eurorack modular are small businesses that produce in small numbers. To me, it is deliberating that not everything is immediately available all the time and every once in a while there are modules that are on backorder, out of stock, or out of production. With its unconventional and inspiring design, the Mangrove formant oscillator is highly regarded even years after its release. I think it is well worth the hype."

Teletype and Just friends | it was practically magic

video upload by patchesinblue

"first time using i2c to have the Monome teletype speak to Whimsical Raps just friends. i started studying and got distracted

the MakeNoise mimeophon is there to preserve and repeat the history of what was said; occasionally; like little echoes of memories that surface suddenly, often blurring the lines between what was said and what was meant and understood

the er-301 adds grains of weariness from having to listen and remember

the Hologram Electronics microcosm creates much needed space to breathe

Thank you to vecteezy for their bird vectors that helped me created the animation"

Mannequins Three Sisters 1/2: Formant & Crossover Filter Modes

Learning Modular

"This first of two movies explains what’s going on behind the panel in this versatile filter module, and explores the different ways you can use it in a conventional one audio in/one audio out patch. The second movie (below) explores using its multiple inputs and outputs.

00:00 introduction
00:28 topology explained
01:01 use as a triple bandpass Formant filter
03:28 keyboard tracking
04:27 resonance and self-oscillation
05:14 crossover mode explained
06:09 use as a multi-mode filter
06:49 focus on the Centre band in Crossover mode
08:16 switching from sawtooth to square wave input
09:23 pinging for percussive sounds
10:52 notch rejection (“wet/dry” or “anti-filter” mixing)
13:36 signal level management
15:51 intro to the second movie"

Monome Norns: Cheat Codes 2 + Mannequins Just Friends

Matt Lowery

"Dan released an update to cheat codes 2 that is so cool. Basically, each pad on a cheat codes bank can send notes to a just friends that is connected via crow. That can then come back into cheat codes as material for the live record buffers. Leads to some very fun exploration. Here's a few minutes of this morning's session. I have buttons mapped on the midi fighter twister to generate new patterns within cheat codes."

Octatrack vs Modular ~ We were young


"In this video I use the 'remixer' method with my 104 7u case full of awesome modules including the new Noise Engineering Desmodus Versio and Mannequins W/ with the new beta firmware set to an FM synth. All the sounds come from the modular and the Octarack is a mixer, FX box, and resampler for looping.

Better sound of Arturia MatrixBrute? Roland Jupiter and SH101, Korg MS20, Prophet 5?

Published on Sep 9, 2019 PawelBlaszczak_Composer

"How Arturia is sounding with third filter, with a lot of other third filters :) I'm testing how Arturia working with different eurorack filters from Korg MS20, Roland Jupiter 6, Roland SH101, Oberheim SEM, Prophet 6, Polikvoks and Prophet 5. Also Three Sisters filter checking.

This is test from composer/producer to others composer/producers so don't expect engineer oscilloscope detailed test. I'm artist, not engineer so far :)

So here are full list of filters with same order as showing:
1. Korgasmatron II from Intellijel - Korg MS20 filter,
2. Doepfer A-106-5 SEM - Oberheim filter
3. Jove80 from System 80 - Roland Jupiter 6, Roland SH101 filter,
4. Curtis Filter from Dave Smith - Prophet 6 filter,
5. Z2040 from TipTop - Prophet 5 rev 2 filter,
6. Black Polivoks VCF from Erica Synth - Polivoks filter,
7. Three Sisters from Mannequins

I used FabFilter L2 at the end of signal, since I thing loudness isn't most important factor here. No other effects.
Also, when I put to much resonance to duck the whole signal for not destroying your speakers, headphones. So, it isn't truth how Arturia is sound with max settings of resonance, because signal is ducked.

And sorry SEM presented is 12dB, not 6dB, sorry of that!

English is my second language, so sorry for mistakes. Hope you'll like it, not mistakes of course, but filters :)"

Mangrove Module through Sirin Filter Testing - NuEVI - Mark Steiner

Published on Aug 12, 2019 Mark Steiner

"Raw Video of very initial shape exploring of the Mangrove Module through the Sirin VCF. Breath is changing the wave shape. Occasionally I growl and the CV brings it in. I'm only using the one Eurorack module going in to the Sirin, so imagine all the amazing shape changing you can do with even just a few more modules, even simple utility. I suspect this will sound even cooler when I drive VCA with breath instead of VCF. Just does better with wood wind things that way. Plus the Sirin has a VCA and VCF CV in, so with a Eurorack simple mixer you can send various %'s of VCA and VCF from breath and/or vibrato.... now that is how you do it. All analog here. And not yet even using the Sirin VCO's, which have tricks of their own."

Untitled #7 (Eurorack Ambient w/ Mangrove + Just Friends)

Published on Aug 31, 2018 S. B. Arweiler

"Mangrove plays the main meldoy, Just Friends the drones. Mangrove's melody is recorded and processed in Morphagene, Just Friends's drones are processed through the Three Sisters filter. Everything is sequenced via Kria, with some modulations from Cycles, both running on Monome Ansible."
