SUPERBOOTH 2024: XOR Electronics - Nerdseq Expanders

video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Thomas from XOR Electronics showcased their new expanders for the NerdSeq sequencer. The dual-core expander features a two times four voice oscillator with 32 waveforms that can be independently mixed, allowing for multi-octave chords to be played in a paraphonic way. Integrated into the NerdSeq, the expander also includes eight LFOs for manipulating different parameters within the waveform, as well as a stereo mode with two audio outputs for creating a rich stereo field.

In addition to the dual-core expander, XOR Electronics introduced a small add-on module for the TipTop Art System, enabling polyphonic sequencing with up to six columns of notes. This module, compatible with the Art protocol, is a cost-effective solution for integrating polyphonic sequencing into the Art system. With both products set to be available in the summer, these expanders offer expanded capabilities for electronic musicians seeking new ways to explore and experiment with their sound. For more information on the dual-core expander and the add-on module for the TipTop Art System, visit the XOR Electronics website."

NerdSEQ Firmware V2.0 and Multi-IO Expander release

video upload by XOR Electronics

"Finally I am happy to announce you the new NerdSEQ firmware V2.0 and the new Multi-IO Expander release! There have been many updates since the initial release of the NerdSEQ 6 years ago but this time it is the most massive update so far!

Adding a new mapping screen which allows to modulate everything with everything, adding calculations and even simple scripting/code.
A new scaling screen with many scale presets, user scales and microtuning per note.
A new tracktype which allows polyphonic sequencing and the drummatrix to sequence Midi, I2C, CV/Gate ...
New edit modes to fill in notes/values and make sequences on-the-fly.
Updated Midi Routing allows the use of 3 independent Midi Ports with the Multi-IO Expander.
I2C support for distingEX, ER301, Just friends, 16n/F8R and clones....
External control of all parameters in the NerdSEQ.

There is much more in this new firmware and I squeezed even more out of the NerdSEQ hardware!!
As usual the new firmware is free to download on the XOR Website.

Also the new Multi-IO Expander is finally released which is the new Midi and I2C Expander. It got 3 Midi Ports:
- USB Host - Connect a Launchpad, Midi Keyboard, Midi Controller etc
- USB Device - Connect with the Computer and you got a NerdSEQ Midi Device to use with a DAW
- TRS-A Midi - Classic TRS-A / DIN Midi ports
They are 2 x I2C Ports which can be used in a flexible way to act as a Leader or as a Follower
- Encoder and Buttons allow to use new edit modes, to dial in notes and values

The new firmware and more information is available on the XOR Website:

Modular Day Barcelona 2023 after party - HRTL

video upload by Befacosynth

"There are few in the Czech electronic music culture with a background as storied as HRTL, the performing alias of Prague-based synthesiser musician Leoš Hort. Iconically performing from the centre of the dancefloor, HRTL is a force of the wildest nature on his instruments of choice, a carefully curated setup of modular synthesisers and tabletop instruments. Infamously electrifying and always improvised, each of his live club performances is quite literally one-of-a-kind; generative breakbeat rhythms meet with liquefying acid, and synths sliced from the utmost peaks of euphoria."

SUPERBOOTH 2022 XOR Electronics NerdSEQ Expanders

video upload by sonicstate

"Tomas from Xor-Electronics welcomed us to his 80s/90s inspired booth, and after a look at his Hasslehof posters, we got a taste of his NerdSEQ sequencer.

The NerdSEQ is a tracker-style sequencer, with 8 tracks each with 3 CV and gate outs. there's 2 additional outputs for 4 audio tracks allowing sample sequencing and it does 4 Operator FM Synthesis. It even has an optional Video out should you wish to view the tracker interface on your old tv.

NerdSEQ Available: Winter 22 Price: 486 euros (ex. VAT)"

Octatrack Meets the XOR NerdSEQ: 24 Patterns of Pure Nostalgic Bliss

video by EZBOT

"This was my live performance for Basement State on 6/4/21. I built a template for the Octatrack that was a mix of live resampling/fx-box and a typical drum machine. The music is very cheerful, someone in chat said the music was an "anti-depressant." I played with Red Means Recording, Project 32, and Herr Shield. Amazing performances all around. If you want to know more about my setup, thought process, and writing style for this performance please visit my Patreon for in depth discussions on this performance and others.

drum 1


"pulled my moms powershot out of the drawer, taped it to a pole and threw this box under the hot lights. XOR percussion circuit as a gift for a friend, nothing fancy:

2 pairs of schmitt triggers oscillators each into their own 4070 XOR gate, output of those into a third gate. Simple line level decay vca ala Elliot Williams hackaday series. Second buffered output straight outta the 3rd xor gate before the vca, hot and loud for something close to modular level? The oscillators at highest frequency setting "die out" and effectively fall out of the mix. 9v battery. Moisturized my hands right after recording."

The block4 Social Distancing Concerts 3: Notstandskomitee 2

Published on Mar 28, 2020 elektronengehirn

"A different Notstandskomitee concert, playing on our big modular synthesizer. Streaming from our studios gives us the possibility to work with equipment we are not able to take with us to a regular concert setting, hence it gives you also a unique experience."

"Last week we started a series of streaming concerts from our studios. We also suffer from some canceled concerts but streaming gives us the possibility to work with all our gear which no booker ever would pay us to bring. So this provides a different and unique experience for the audience. This one is my solo project Notstandskomitee creating and performing a whole set on the Eurorack modular, driven by the XOR Nerd Seq tracker like sequencer.

Further concerts can be found on the same youtube channel, more music from the Notstandskomitee project which I started 1991 can be found at"

New XOR Electronics NerdSEQ CV16 Expander

Published on Feb 24, 2020 XOR Electronics

"A small promo video about the new 'More CV 16' expander for the NerdSEQ Eurorack sequencer.
It adds 16 more CV outputs which are totally integrated into the sequencer.

The CV outputs can be either pitch or note scaled (in pairs of 0..10 Volt or -5/+5 Volt). Beside being outputs for notes or pitches with glide settings for each output, it also contains several modulators which can be routed to each output (pure or adding to the current voltage):
8 ASR (Attack Sustain Release) Envelopes with Attack, Release and Sustain settings for each Envelope.
8 LFO with the following waveforms: Sinus, Triangle, Sawtooth, Ramp, Noise and Random (randomly mixing through the waveforms).

The modulators can be manipulated in their stage and attributes from each sequencer step. The CV16 expander enhances the NerdSEQ with Polyphonic sequencing and recording within one or multiple tracks.

This is not a standalone product! It works only together with the NerdSEQ.
