Jack O'Reilly - The Synth Wars (Cover)

"Just a separate upload of the cover I did for my previous video. Just a sick song from one of my favorite shows. Recorded entirely on my modular synthesizer (with some supporting pads done with the KORG Polysix)"

SSL/YuSynth Clock Divider Module Works Better With Improved Power Supply

video upload by John L Rice

"I recently finished installing an internal PowerOne PSU to replace the two small external ones I had been using in this system and replaced the DotCom style power harness with an Analog Craftsman acBus distribution board. I had previously moved out the Synthetic Sound Labs / YuSynth clock divider because the The Matrix sequencer from SSL didn’t seem to work with it so I put the SSL V-Gates module in its place, but I missed the playability of the rotary selector switches so I tried it again and now it works! 🥳 Apparently the small MeanWell power bricks could supply enough current or high enough voltage for it to work? 🤷‍♂️

This was just a quick test to make sure it was working well. Besides the SSL divider and sequencer the other modules used are a Martin Jan Koehler Tidal Modulator (a 5U port of Mutable Instruments Tides), a Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Magnus VCO, and a Digital Utilities module from Free State FX (a 5U port of Ornament and Crime module). Also the case is a modified Box11 and the right angle patch cables are from Tendrils Cables. (thanks Dan! 😎🥰)

Tandem random sequences with one-finger performance on Mellotron, Moog clones

video upload by glkibler

"The 5U modulars I'm using here are two prototypes I hand-built in 2014 using mainly Yves Usson's (Yusynth) circuit designs - ones, I might add, that I painstakingly transcribed from his original printed circuit designs to my own veroboard layouts. These were originally housed in cheap Ikea bookshelves but last year I broke down and bought two very nice-looking cabinets, though I retained my own power supplies. The two 960 sequencers above are simply Behringer 960s I had re-housed inside full-size matching panels and cabinets."

Saturday morning fun with some of Polybrute presets and cool sequence...

video upload by yusynthman

"All is said in the title. Enjoy it..."

yusynthman aka Yves Usson created the Matrixbrute. He also created the Minibrute which led to the Matrixbrute, which lead to the Polybrute.

Trigger Bus 1027b

video upload by yusynthman

"Voilà un premier test du Trigger Bus que j'ai conçu et fabriqué pour compléter le séquenceur 1027 de mon MOS-LAB 2500 . Ici, les deux bus A et B activent séparément des ADSR qui l'une passe un bruit blanc (cymbale) et l'autre le "PING" du 1047 (bass drum). Here a brief test of the Trigger Bus 1027 extension I designed and built for my MOS-LAB 2500. There bus A and B are connected to two indépendant ADSR that drive a VCA with white noise (Hat) and the 1047 resonant filter (Bass drum)"

Afrorack: Sound samples from the filter etched on a PCB (Very percussive)

video upload by Afrorack

"From the my last video that I uploaded, I was not able to show the filter from the PCB that I etched working. That is because 2 legs of one of the transistors were touching. More specifically their pads on the PCB. Anyways, I sorted that out and now the filter is working. The original filter from Yusynth is here if you want to check it out" [mentioned in this recent post on Nyle Steiner]

I etched my first PCB! Well almost

video upload by Afrorack

"I am always excited to learn something new. This is a skill i've always wanted to learn since I build my circuits on perfboard. It didn't come out perfect but non the less I salvaged the circuit in other ways. If you have pointers on how to make better transfers leave a comment below."

Clouds-Two DIY analog String Machines

video upload by Andreas Remshagen

A Live-Performance with my two DIY String-Synths
I used the Strings-Synth and the Strings-Choir-Synth 2.0
The Melody comes from the Elektor-Formant and the Drums are from my analog DS7-Clone Drumbox.
All Synthesizers are driven from my Flowstone Sequencer-Software and two Polyend Poly Modules
The effects are from the Elektor Formants Noise routed through a Steiner-Parker Filterclone and Ray Wilsons Noisebox (
All String-Machines are also based one Ray Wilsons cirquits
The Solo-Synth plays the YuSynth-VCO. The ADSR is connected with
the VCO`s CV in and gives the character of a Japanese Flute

Tomita Whistle Patch Tutorial

video by Synthesizer Reviews // Tips // Patch Tutorials

See this post for the original.

"This is my attempt at recreating the iconic Whistle patch created by Isao Tomita.

Most people with Eurorack or 5U Systems can easily emulate the patch. I couldn't find a step by step tutorial online so I made this.

Some notes that are unclear from my video.

The mixer knobs ended up being
LFO turned up to 1.3
Pitch Envelope turned up to 2.3

I also have set up a VCA for keyboard velocity."
