Befaco Oneiroi meet Octatrack - V/oct and audio input


video upload by Befacosynth

"Patch notes: The Octatrack's audio outputs are processed by the Oneiroi, it also receives notes, clock and some modulations via Midi Thing V2.

Oneiroi is an ambient and drone-like soundscapes full voice.

At his core, there is a Wavetable/Supersaw, Sine Wave Oscillator and a joyful Looper. This is followed by an FX section featuring a Multimode filter, a Resonator, a Delay, and a Reverb.
Its randomizer creates instant patches at the touch of a button.
The Looper can record the external input or the output for 'Sound On Sound' looping.

H90 Modular Love: Quadravox Modulation


video upload by Oren Levy

"A synth patch using an ‪@EventideAudio‬ H90 to transform a sequenced sine wave into a chord sequence.
Various parts of the patch are modulated with analog CV from the synthesizer. Those CVs get converted to MIDI CC using the ‪@Befacosynth‬ CV thing and fed into the H90."

Soundtrack vibes - Plinky with Meska Presets


video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Channeling #soundtrack vibes in this slow-building Sunday jam, recorded late last night!

This is our second clip in a small series showing off the new #Plinky sound bank created by by @Meska_Statik. The Bank is a free download at https://plinkysynth.com/presets/ and works for all generations of #Plinky.

It contains 32 presets exploring lush #delay, cavernous #reverb, pitch drift and gnarly #saturation. For Meska's overview of all sounds, and a number of awesome patch from scratch videos, check out [this video].

Plinky is synched via MIDI clock to our #Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer for #Eurorack, playing back a recorded note sequence. Stolperbeats is in extra sloppy "Kabuki" mode, suggested by our friend and expert breakbeat researcher @beatsbykabuki: Kick and Snare are super laid back, Hihats are a bit rushed, except when they play at the same time- creating this awesome push-and-pull #groove. In this patch, Enrica tweaks the sensitivity on Plinky to slowly build up a wall of sound.

Plinky's pitch CV feeds the lovely-sounding @Befacosynth evenVCO through their A*B+C VCA for a low-frequency, subby bass line.

The drum sounds are played back using the Samples II module by @soundforce_nicolas and processed through our #Farbshaper and #Farbhighpass modules. The shaper adds some extra dirt, the transistor ladder highpass is used with the kick envelope to get a ducking effect by modulating its cutoff.

The metering tool at the top right is a @vaskiembedded 2HP Lights Stereo Visualizer, an incredibly handy audio visualisation module. Our friends Stijn and Priscilla of #TiNRS @thisisnotrocketscience3942 made the one-of-a-kind Eurorack case from a #FenixIV enclosure.

Plinky is an #expressive #polyphonic #touch #synthesizer, designed by mmalex and available as a #DIY kit from @ThonkSynthDIY"

Meska's 32 presets for Plinky


video upload by Meska

Here a sound demo of the 32 preset i have made for plinky, they are mostly on the 'noise' & 'wonky' side of plinky Plinky website : https://plinkysynth.com/
Linck to the preset : https://plinkysynth.com/presets/Meska... "

Explore the dark side of Plinky - 32 free presets by Meska

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"New sounds for your Plinky! This awesome new bank of 32 presets by @Meska_Statik draws focus to the "dark" side of #Plinky, exploring lush delay, cavernous reverb, pitch drift and gnarly saturation.

The bank includes the #preset file, 8 samples and individual links for the browser-based patch editor. It works for all generations of Plinky and is a #free download at https://plinkysynth.com/presets

We already gave a little sneak peek of these sounds at @superboothberlin, so for this little snippet we broke our #Superbooth setup back out to give you a little musical demo showcasing one of the sounds, Preset 4: Footstep. We recorded a couple of clips showing one sound each in musical context, as a companion to Meska's overview of all sounds at • My 32 presets for Plinky [Meska's video above]

In this patch, Plinky plays back a recorded sequence and is synched via MIDI clock to our Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer for Eurorack. Enrica plays the touch surface to insert individual notes into the arpeggio, and tweaks the A knob to adjust sensitivity on the touch grid to get a grittier sound.

Plinky's pitch CV drives a @Befacosynth evenVCO through their clever A*B+C VCA for a warm, subdued bassline.

The drum sounds from the GRRL x Made of Oak Configuration sample pack on @splice - check out their EP GXM Inertia, and the 10 year @sylvanesso anniversary release for some amazing music.

The samples are played using the Samples II module by @soundforce_nicolas and processed through our Farbshaper and Farbhighpass modules. The shaper adds some extra dirt, the transistor ladder highpass is used with the kick envelope to get a ducking effect by modulating its cutoff.

The metering tool at the top right is the incredibly clever and beautiful @vaskiembedded 2HP Lights Stereo Visualizer #audio #visualisation module, engineered by our friend Lauri. The Eurorack case itself is a beautifully crafted FenixIV case made by our friends @thisisnotrocketscience3942 from Amsterdam.

Befaco - Pony VCF


video upload by Befacosynth

"Space-conscious lowpass filter and volume processor.
A combination of VCF + VCA + Mixer that lets you mix three different sound sources, and shape their tone, and levels in a breeze.
The Pony Filter is built around the SSI2144 FATKEYS™ Chip. Has the elegant sound of the classic transistor filter without the associated distortions, due to Dave Rossum’s 'improved ladder' topology."

Update:

Also see DivKid's video here, and mylarmelody's Molten Music Technology video here.

Befaco - Octaves VCO


video upload by Befacosynth

"A harsh and funky take of an additive Oscillator.
Pile up multiplications of your frequency to get a lo-fi-retro wall of squared sound!
You get six doubled frequency pulses, or octaves, with common PWM and volume control for each of them.
The output of each is cascaded to the next one, so you can either have one output with all frequencies or break the chain and get several sums and modulate each independently!"

Update: and video from Divkid directly below. Also see mylarmelodies' Molten Music Technology video here.

A harsh & funky take on an additive oscillator // Octaves VCO from Befaco

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have what Befaco say is "a harsh and funky take on an additive oscillator" as it has individual harmonics or partials and VCAs to modulate them. However the idea of harmonics here is replaced with 6 octaves of square waves. It's an analog design with a triangle core oscillator that through frequency doublers give 6 octaves to work with, each turned into squares that respond to PWM. An onboard mixer allows for blending these squares, you can break out into new tones with self patching, or make multi-layered wide frequency spanning voices from the individual outs."

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."

Befaco FXBoy - Analog FX for Eurorack on a Gameboy Cartridge


video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Happy and excited to be part of @modulardaybarcelona tomorrow - it's a super nice #modular #meet in Barcelona, Spain, with DIY #workshops, lots of great #synth makers and performances. We will be showing our #Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer as well as the #Befaco FXboy, a #collab module between @Befacosynth @tesseractmodular3149 @MakingSoundMachines @touellskouarn6916 @xorelectronics @instruo and @feedbackmodules9902.

The module has a slot that takes cartridges in the same form factor as the @NintendoJP #gameboy, but with an #audio #effect circuit on it. This allows you to hot-swap #fx #circuits on you eurorack #modular #synth on the go, taking one cartridge out and replacing it with another as you jam. Our cart has an #analog #waveshaper on it, and provides you with #visual #feedback on the incoming CV with #colorful #LEDs shining through the translucent case.

Today's video is a little jam that happened when packing for Modular Day! Stolperbeats is seen here sequencing the #CycloneAnalogic TT-78, a drum machine inspired by the #classic #Roland CR-78 analog drum synth. The individual outputs are processed with the #FXboy, as well as our Farbhighpass transistor ladder highpass filter.

If you've been eyeing one of our #eurorack #DIY #kits and you want to build it together with us, Modular Day will be the the #perfect #opportunity! Hang out with us and build a Farbfolder, Farbshaper, Farbhighpass or TausenddB and Multiplikand with us.
