Intellijel Introduces Atlantix & Atlx

video upload by Intellijel

Additional user videos below.

"This is the Intellijel Atlantix & Atlx

The Atlantix is the highly-anticipated successor to the Intellijel Atlantis which was originally inspired by the classic Roland SH-101—one of our all-time favorite synthesizers. Despite the SH-101’s seemingly limited architecture, it produces various creative and musically useful sounds that have inspired generations of artists and countless hits. The Atlantix is just as immediate for dialing in beautifully rich bass and lead sounds. Thoughtful design, numerous additional features, and flexible patching options open up a massive amount of new sonic territory to explore.

In this video, we take a first look at Atlantix and the Atlx Expander. More in-depth feature videos will be available soon."

"Recording and posting more improvs. This late night hypnosis is a @DorianConcept1 inspired synth loop jam.
Thought about droppin in a beat, but I quickly took it out to keep this one synth loop / arp sounds only."

Time Trees /// Cascadia, Pulsar, OB-6 improv

video upload by Jon Gee

"Jamming on the regular here at the Noasphere. Chris’ best line is 'you should record this!'
It makes me laugh every time. The motivation to post and share comes and goes for all of us. It’s pretty fluid….we can get music into each other’s heads almost instantly. So why not….Here’s a jam around a Cascadia motif and a sweet beat treat from Pulsar. OB-6 has been a joy to play. I’ll post more off the cuff improvs and all the jams that fall into the 'you should record this' moment.
Power to the Peaceful."

Intellijel Cascadia - Patching in the FX Section

video upload by Intellijel

"Who ever said FX pedals were just for guitars?

Cascadia has a dedicated FX section for patching in pedals and line level FX processors. No need for adapters or weird cables - ¼” jack sockets for Send, Return and Expression control can be found on the back of Cascadia, with complete signal control to ensure the best possible match up. Cascadia works great with delay, reverb, distortion, chorus.. Pretty much whatever FX you have to hand. Matt explains how this all works while partnering Cascadia with some of our favourite pedals. What are your favourite FX for synthesizers? Let us know in the comments!

u-he CVilization Mode I: Musical demo (no talking)

video upload by u-he

"Here's a jam featuring our CVilization module in Mode I (4 x 4 Matrix Mixer). We're exploring the musical possibilities of the mysterious Matrix Rotation [posted here]. 4 different oscillator signals are routed through CVilization's matrix and distributed to various other modules. CVilization now rotates its inputs and outputs, creating ever-changing mixes of these oscillator signals. CVilization's sidekick Wiretap also joins the game with two of its outputs hooked up, creating some funky alternating envelopes.

Intellijel Cascadia: patching Ring Mod into FX loop with Chroma Console

video uploads by The Synth Shed


1. Intellijel Cascadia sound demo with Vector Five12 sequencer (no talking)
Sound demo showing how to set up a basic patch and modulations (based on some of the start-up examples in the manual) - with CV pitch/gate controlled through the amazing Five12 Vector Sequencer to give us a driving techno line with lots of dirt.

side-note: I don't know if I was hallucinating after too much coffee, but by the end I thought the melody had morphed into the Star Wars Imperial March. WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE!
2. Intellijel Cascadia: patching Ring Mod into FX loop with Chroma Console
Fourth part of my initial Cascadia explorations, again using the Chroma on fx duties, but this time with the added textures created by patching the Cascadia's Ring Modulator into the FX loop. Tasty sounds!
3. Intellijel Cascadia x Chroma Console = 'Add N to (X)'
Building on the patch and sequence created for my first Cascadia sound demo, we take things further with the addition of the inspiring multi-fx unit Chroma Console from Hologram Electronics. The perfect pairing for creating experimental sounds - and if you slow the tempo you're in instant 'Add N to (X)' chunky synth groove territory. Once again driven by the Five12 Vector Sequencer.
4. Intellijel Cascadia x Chroma Console PART 2: Filthy fuzz bass!
Had so much fun experimenting with this killer combo in the first video, that I ended up recording another video just to show how dang low down and dirty the Cascadia can go with a little help from its friends (in this case, FX from the Chroma and sequencing via the Five12 Vector)

Intellijel Cascadia - Hidden Function: The Entropic Sequence Generator

video upload by Intellijel

"Did you know about Cascadia’s hidden function - the E.S.G?

It’s short for Entropic Sequence Generator, and it’s an alternative mode to the LFO on Envelope B. In this video, Matt explains what it is, how it works and the 2 methods to enable it. Get random, get weird!

Note: The E.S.G. was added in Firmware update 1.3+ - Please update your firmware version if older than this.

Intellijel Cascadia - Creating Sounds without Patch Cables

video upload by Intellijel

"Matt takes us through the basics of how to create and sculpt sounds on Cascadia without the use of patch cables.

Cascadia is a hugely versatile semi-modular synthesizer, and at first glance the vast number of patch points & controls might seem daunting. This video breaks down the basic signal flow and normalled connections, so you can get an overall sense of how Cascadia works - whether you're a beginner or just curious! This is by no means a deep dive, but we'll be following up with more videos on specific features soon.

Uplifting Synth Jam feat. the OB-6, Pulsar-23, Cascadia, Polybrute

video upload by Jon Gee

"Lil weekend jam session I recorded yesterday. Made a sequence on the OB-6, oscillators tuned to 5ths. Took inspiration from a beat Lone did in his tune “Realise”. Cascadia arp mostly on that lovely sine wave (likely one of my fav sounds from Cascadia). Halfway it goes into some freaky territory with Pulsar’s bass and some thru-zero FM on the arp. Music is healing. A jam a day keeps the doctor away."
