DISTINCT / Xaoc Devices JENA wavetable / eery soundscape / not a tutorial

video upload by BRiES

"Playing around with bank 7 on JENA. The output of DREZNO is going through FILTER 8 (PS output) to be able to add some fm to the timbre. I really enjoyed making this edit."

Xaoc Devices ROSTOCK / trying out a phaser and chorus patch / DREZNO / POCZDAM

video upload by BRiES

"I'm just trying out things with ROSTOCK to get a feel for it. This is a patch where I used it to create a phase-shifting or pitch modulation effect (depending on the speed of the modulation). By mixing in the original sound you can get phase cancellation in mono (comb-filtering?) or chorus in stereo."

Xaoc Devices strikes back with Batumi II

Update via Xaoc Devices: "Unfortunately, we had made an error in the Batumi II description you received suggesting the assign waveform selection was performed on a per-channel basis even without the Poti II expander. That is not the case."

Updated press release follows:

Xaoc Devices presents Batumi II – a greatly improved and enhanced new iteration of the modern day classic that is/was the original Batumi, preserving its layout and form factor. The premise remains the same: four LFO’s with individual outputs for sine, assign and rectangle waves. The channels can operate independently or they can be linked – phase shifted, divided or multiplied (new mode alert) with regard to the first channel. Multiple major and minor improvements have been implemented, e.g. when synced to an external clock source, each channel’s frequency slider selects a clock division for that channel’s outputs.

We have managed to incorporate the features of the original expander into Batumi II (sync mode switching and assign waveform selection) without changing the size of the module which opened up new possibilities for the new optional expander. The Poti II expander for Batumi II adds multi destination inputs for sine wavefolding, assign output waveform selection or rectangle pulse modulation with the destination set for each channel independently. Poti II also features frequency input attenuation as well as sine and assign output attenuation. All adjustments may be performed separately for each individual channel or for all channels simultaneously.

The Batumi II software has been rewritten from scratch to ensure best performance. The hardware has also been updated to allow for V/oct tracking and stable operation up to audio rates (more powerful CPU, precise, wideband converters, antialiased waveforms).

Batumi II notable features:

– 4 LFO’s
– redesigned from scratch – both the hardware and software
– new waveforms for the assign output (including random)
– new frequency multiplication mode
– all features of the Poti expander incorporated into the main module
– very wide frequency range well into audio rate
– 1V/oct tracking = so can be used as 4 VCO’s
– in the Phase/Divide/Mult modes the random waves at the ASGN output follow the values available in the master/A channel
– 10HP
– +90/-50mA


Poti II expander notable features:
– per-channel input and output attenuation for the SINE and ASSGN outputs
– per-channel shape modulation with switchable destination (wave folding, shape switching, PWM)
– stores settings during a power cycle
– LED indication of the discrepancy between the stored setting and current pot position
– 4HP
– +10/-0mA from Batumi II

Xaoc Devices Rostock & Drezno II: new patch ideas for the Leibniz Binary Subsystem

video upload by Tom Churchill

"In this video, I’m taking another look at the Leibniz Binary Subsystem from Xaoc Devices. This is a set of Eurorack modules that let you convert analogue audio and CV into 8-bit digital signals and then process them in all sorts of unique and interesting ways. Using various combinations of Leibniz modules, you can do everything from waveshaping and bitcrushing to sequencing and drum pattern generation.

Xaoc Devices recently sent over the latest modules in the system for me to check out. Drezno II is a new and improved version of their original analogue to digital and digital to analogue converter module which acts as the main front-end for the system. And Rostock is a binary data pipeline, or digital shift register, which lets you delay, loop, scramble and reclock the 8-bit data stream. In the video, I build a few patches that explore some of the musical applications of these tools."

Schlappi Engineering THREE BODY / 'ratio locked' modulation madness ft. Xaoc KOSZALIN

video upload by BRiES

"Here i'm running the outputs of all the vcos into a mixer. There's a lot of stepped modulation going of for the FM and phase indexes (indices?).

After a while I add left and right outputs of Koszalin which is processing a multed output of the mix of waves coming from Three Body.

I didn't know what to expect from a frequency shifter but it sounds like a mix between a very unique chorus and 2000 era talkbox synths (Boys Noize)."

Top 3 Favorite Eurorack Oscillators Picked by Our Pals ALX-106, SURCO, and BRiES

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Our pals have seen their fair share of oscillators in their time—and now they share some of their favorites.

In this video, our pals ALX-106, SURCO, and BRiES talk about their favorite Eurorack sound sources: the Xaoc Devices Odessa, OXI Coral, and Joranalogue Generate 3. Covering everything from additive synthesis, polyphonic sound generation, and thru-zero modulation potential, this is quite the trio of sound generators...each offering something unique to the Eurorack modular synth format.

LEBAB / (not) a generative patch / Xaoc MOSKWA 2 / Joranalogue Audio Design system

video upload by BRiES

"I was going for a patch that I could caption with 'you don't need a lot of modules to make a great patch, but you do need a sh*tload of cables!'. Unfortunately I'm really bad at keeping things simple.
Honorable mentions: Soundforce CHORUS 6 and Xaoc Koszalin for stereo movement of the voices/hats.
Outboard effects: Lexicon tap delay, Alesis Quadraverb."

Xaoc Devices Odessa: full guide and fresh patch ideas using additive synthesis

video upload by Tom Churchill

"Odessa, by Xaoc Devices, is one of my favourite modular sound sources. At the time of recording, it’s been available for well over three years, but as far as I can see it’s still pretty much the only Eurorack voice of its type - a one-knob-per-function, five-voice paraphonic, digital additive oscillator - and I think it’s often still a bit misunderstood.

So I thought now might be a good time to take a fresh look at Odessa and see how it stacks up in 2023. If you’re an owner who hasn’t used it for a while, I hope it inspires you to dig in again, and either way, I hope you just enjoy some of the sounds and maybe learn a bit about additive synthesis in the process.

Note: I’ve done a few videos in collaboration with Xaoc Devices recently, but this isn’t one of them. I bought Odessa with my own hard-earned cash last year, so it’s not sponsored - I’m making this purely as a fanboy and I have no other agenda.

The module that makes complex modulation easy – Xaoc Zadar

video upload by

"Interesting modulation is what makes eurorack patches come to live. I have been using Zadar from Xaoc devices for some time now, and really enjoy it for the interesting and complex modulation signals it can create. Today we take a look at how the module works, and of course I give a series of patch examples and ideas along the way."

Superbooth 2023: Xaoc Devices - New Modules

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Lukasz from Xaoc Devices at Superbooth 2023, where he introduced five new modules. The first one is Ostrawa, a stereo mixer with four channels with full stereo inputs, a full stereo aux loop that can change from pre-fader to post-fader, manual muting, balance control, two direct inputs, and four inputs for gates for muting the channels of Ostrava. Next we saw, Bohumin, an expander to Ostrava which adds a second stereo auxiliary loop. The third module, Deva, is an expander for Timiszoara, which is a multi-effects module that adds two analog feedback loops with CV control over the return volume and tilt filters.

The last two new modules are from the Leibniz subsystem, which includes Dresno and Rostock. Dresno is a vastly improved new version of one of the first modules released in the subsystem that features a high-grade 16-bit converter, a switch in the middle that switches the range of Fresno, and calibration for chromatic quantization. Lastly, Rostock is a binary data pipeline that is a digital shift register that can delay anything fed into it by up to 64 samples. Users can adjust the number of samples and engage the loop button to create a repeating and regular sequence.

Ostrawa, Deva and Rostock Available June 2023

Bohumin and Dresno available Autumn 2023

Prices: Ostrawa: 180 Euro, Bohumin 260 Euros, Deva 180 Euros, Dresno 2 295 Euros, Rostock 260 Euros"

Eurorack: Malekko Richter Anti-Oscillator into Xaoc Devices Belgrad + ModBase 09 Mk2

video upload by lucafrancinimusic

"I've got a few new juicy modules today, so I've set up a little jam with all of them. The Jomox ModBase 09 Mk2 is the kick, the Anti-Oscillator is the bass which goes to Belgrad filter and to TipTop VCA. A first envelope goes to Belgrad and a second envelope from O_c goes to the VCA creating the fake sidechain for a nice pumping and separation between kick and bass.
M-32 is the synth lead and Rings the percussive part.
This video is NOT sponsored by any of the brands visible and mentioned throughout this video."

Eurorack: Building The Ultimate Vibe Machine

video upload by

"Vintage, analog, tape, and character galore, this is my latest eurorack system with a breakdown and of all the individual modules with sound demos. I also go into my reasoning behind them and how I made a system where the total is greater than the sum of the parts.

I was fully intending on getting out of eurorack upon the realization that nothing I had built up until that point really compared with my favorite semi modulars, the Moog Matriarch and the Korg MS-20. I had also tried to make grooveboxes, but nothing compared to my Digitakt. But after selling almost all of my excessively huge collection of modules and synths, I thought I'd give it one last ditch effort..."

IMAVAI #3 / trying out your requests / STEP 8 ODESSA / SED / ADDAC 601

video upload by BRiES

"In this I'll-make-a-video-about-it episode (I'm more and more starting to sound like a tv host) I patched up STEP 8 as an analog shift register for the 5 voices on Odessa (you need the Hel expander for that). I also run a few hot signals into the Rides In The Storm SED low pass filter to see how it behaves when it's being overdriven. The last patch is (not) a vocoder patch where I use half the tools you'd actually need to make a decent vocoder patch. Instead it just sounds interesting.
