The Lab Report Episode 2: New Waves


video upload by Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers

"This Lab Report explores the waveshapers of the Voltage Lab 2.

The Pittsburgh Modular Voltage Lab 2 is a cutting edge synthesis laboratory that offers a new palette of analog textures and waveforms to sonic researchers. Newly developed wave shaping capabilities paired with powerful synthesis tools, and a deep, performance oriented controller join together to create a complete sound design laboratory. This instrument has a very physical sound. The tones it creates feel natural and alive, with traditional waveforms becoming the seeds of unique new shapes and sounds that shift between analog physical modeling and more unfamiliar, abstract timbres."

CHOMPI x Chase Bliss = Treasure Island


video upload by CHOMPI CLUB

"Welcome to Chase Bliss x CHOMPI Island where the vibes are good and friends abound :)

CHOMPI loves to make friends, especially with effects pedals! So when our pals over at Chase Bliss invited us to collaborate on a fun pop-up at SuperBooth 2024, we of course said YES! To honor this friendship collab, we've crafted this special CHOMPI colorway: Treasure Island

In addition to this limited release, we've also teamed up on a new firmware update that adds a proper FX SEND & RETURN routing position, configurable default states, and other user config options... streamlining the process of pairing CHOMPI with all sorts of external FX.

Sound design tutorial from Stranger Things Eleven using OB-6 part 2


video upload by EthanJamesMusic

EthanJamesMusic OB-6 videos

"This is a sound design tutorial for how to approach a specific sound that was used in the first season of Stranger Things. I was requested to show how I would make the chord sound that happens in the track "Eleven". The sound is a wobbly synth sound, with some wrinkles about modulated the filter.

The Sequential Circuits OB-6 can do a respectable job of coming close to the sound. This track has polyphony, so a multi-oscillator synth with separate envelopes is required.

Analog synthesizers have found a way back into film music, which has led to a lot of rich experimentation of what these instruments are capable of. I think my main takeaway is the heavy use of filter modulation using an LFO assignment. Also, having a really dry sound mixed in with lots of ambience really cuts through in a way that creates a strong effect."

Sound design tutorial from Stranger Things Eleven using OB-6 and Moog Grandmother


video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a sound design tutorial for how to approach a specific sound that was used in the first season of Stranger Things. I was requested to show how I would make the lead sound that happens in the track "Eleven". The sound is a wet electric piano type of sound, with some wrinkles around the use of filter modulation and reverb..

The Sequential Circuits OB-6 can do a respectable job of coming close to the sound, and I tried to get a Grandmother version to come close. This track does require polyphony, so the Grandmother would have to be multitracked to get the same result.

Analog synthesizers have found a way back into film music, which has led to a lot of rich experimentation of what these instruments are capable of. I think my main takeaway is the heavy use of envelope, and setting the filter modulation much lower than a normal synth pluck would require. Also, having a really dry sound mixed in with lots of ambience really cuts through in a way that creates a strong effect."

Deep dive with the AtoVproject Dual Harmonic Oscillator


video upload by Tom Churchill

"At the end of last year I took delivery of the Dual Harmonic Oscillator, courtesy of AtoV Project. I did a ‘first patch’ type video a few weeks ago, but now that I’ve had a bit longer to get to know it, I wanted to do another video that explores it in a bit more depth. I’m glad I took my time, because this is a very deep oscillator. It’s quite different from any other VCO I’ve used, and it really rewards experimentation. I’ve been coaxing some amazing sounds and textures out of it, and in this video I break down seven patches."

O.Z. Hall Victor posts

"This video is a follow-up my Victor Part 2 video covering the details of the Behringer Victor module. This eurorack module is a quad digital oscillator which is based on the Prophet VS synthesizer from Sequential Circuits. This technology is called Vector Synthesis. It was the basis for the Korg Wavestation and the Yamaha SY22 and TG33 synthesizers.
Part 3 (this video) continues this detailed tutorial with more Use Cases and a look at software available for the Behringer Victor Module.

Video timeline below.

"Wow what an impressively powerful yet somehow simple use of 4HP! The new Samples 2 from SoundForce is a multichannel sample player with loads of features offering lots of musical approaches to working with samples, mono or stereo use, on board mixing, simple sample and settings file set up and more than I'm going to write out here. Watch the video, I hope you're as impressed with it as I am."

ANA 2 - What it Do?


video upload by Mystic Circuits

"Here is our admittedly super long ANA video manual. Doing the overview video for ANA was kind of tough because it is sort of like doing a demo for 9 different modules and they all work in a bunch of different contexts. As a result, we decided to focus this video on the absolute basics of the module to hopefully give you the fundamental understanding needed to use it. There will be another, hopefully shorter, video following this one showing some actual musical patch examples using ANA.

For the written manual and to order go to our website here:

Joranalogue Audio Design DIM 2 / CV controlled dual dimmer (including LED lights) / a quick overview


video upload by BRiES

"This video is for anyone wondering about DIM 2, the new nifty cv controllable dual dimmer module by Joranalogue Audio Design... and yes: the module also includes the nice gooseneck LED lights you see in the video.

There's not a lot to tell about the module, yet I somewhow managed to talk about it for almost 18 minutes straight. You're totally welcome."

Patches on the Fly // Classic Pads on Modern Synths


video upload by Starsky Carr

"Making some classic pad sounds using the basic techniques needed to start crafting your own. There's a million different tones but only a few knobs to tweak to get there. Understanding how they're made will help you place them better in your productions. Great for 90s house or pure 80s synthwave!!

Doing it on the 3rd Wave in this, but most synths and soft synths can do pretty much everything in here, except maybe 3 oscillator tones."

0:00 Preamble - Classic Pads on the 3rd Wave
1:16 Simple as it Gets - Jupiter 4, Juno 6 60 106, Polysix
7:31 2 Oscillators - Prophet5, Oberheim OB, Jupiter 8, Jupiter 6
12:40 3 Oscillators - let's get more movement in there
16:27 Supersaws - AMAZING for pads!

3 cool things to do with LFOs & analogue logic, feat. Nekyia Circuits Obsidian


video upload by Tom Churchill

"This video is about using analogue logic to do interesting things with basic LFOs. The module I’m using is the Nekyia Circuits Obsidian, which is a pair of identical LFOs with a built-in analogue logic section - and of course you can achieve similar results with other modules too."
