Multi Output Flexible Wobbly Modulation // Expert Sleepers Otterley (Eurorack LFO Demo)


video upload by DivKid

"Here we have the latest in the line of analogue Eurorack modules from Expert Sleepers ... Otterley. It's a multi output (5 to be specific) LFO with a flexible feature set for varied modulation across your patches.

The first 4 outputs can be sines or squares and feature global controls and modulation for speed (frequency) and also the spread of rates between the LFOs. You can scale these from -10V to 0V, -5V to +5V or 0V to +10V outputs. There's then a final fifth LFO that's individually speed controlled and always a sine wave."

Moog Mavis, Prophet 5, AJH Synth large Eurorack modular synth Performance


video upload by DreamsOfWires

"Performance using Eurorack and Sequential Prophet 5. The modular consists mostly of AJH Synth modules (list below), a Doepfer Mini Synthesizer Voice and a Moog Mavis.
This is a slightly simplified section of something I've been recording for Bandcamp. A reflection of the present with an ear to the past. It'll be released on Bandcamp soon if I'm satisfied with it once it's finished, no promises.
I wanted to build a piece around a simple, analogue, un-quantised sequencer. The manual scaling and slowing of the sequence was inspired by Tangerine Dream's 'Phaedra', which begins rather chaotically, before the sequence morphs and slows to become more melodic. A fascinating piece of music and synth tweaking from the early 70's.
The ambient drone sounds and polyphonic Prophet presets (which I also created) are more inspired by the movie and television soundtracks of the past, if anything, or at least in my imagination of them.
This was entirely recorded within the Eurorack modular system - the mix isn't the best, but I like creating something in this way, set in stone, frozen in time, warts and all, perfectly imperfect.
My music: https://tomorrowthecure.bandcamp.com

Modules used:
Sounds - 2 full AJH Synth MiniMod voices (equivalent of a Minimoog), with 1 using a Sonic XV instead of a Transistor Ladder Filter. Additionally, a Fixed Filter Bank 914, Wave Swarm, Tone Science Triple Cross, Precision Voltages, Ring SM and CV Mix (for scaling the sequence), Dual LFO, 2x Muting Mxer. Doepfer A-111-5 (same voice as a Dark Energy), Moog Mavis, and Music Thing Modular Radio Music (Japanese funeral ceremony sample).
Sequencer - Erica Synths Sequential Switch with CV Expander.
Effects - Happy Nerding FX Aid (master reverb), ALM Busy Circuits MFX (Mavis drone reverb), XAOC Devices Sarajewo analog 'bucket brigade' delay.
Mixing - Cosmotronic Cosmix.
Audio recorder - Expert Sleepers Disting Mk4 (as WAV recorder)."

Flip your arps! Generating complex arpeggios with soft sync


video upload by Electrum Modular

"To begin phasing out my Behringer Neutron (the first piece of electronic gear I ever bought, back in 2018), I’ve just acquired two new oscillators: Intellijel’s Dixie II+ and Shakmat’s Banshee Reach. Both feature a 'soft sync' option, whereas Neutron has only hard sync. Oscillator sync is generally touted for its distinctive timbral effects. I’ve never seen any discussion of its use at lower (sub-audio) frequencies. But looking at its effect on the waveform, I reckoned soft sync might generate some interesting arpeggios. Here are the results of my experiments!

NOTE: the folded shape of these arpeggios led me to also experiment with using a wavefolder (Intellijel’s Bifold). This worked – and has the advantage of preserving the period/frequency of the arpeggio, and thus the time signature. But as you increase the fold, the arpeggio begins to sound too chaotic. I guess there is a sweet spot (or range) between a bog-standard arpeggio and a formless sequence of notes.

Other modules used:
Make Noise's Maths
Intellijel's Scales
Mutable Instruments' Plaits
Expert Sleepers' Disting EX
ALM's Pamela's New Workout
Low Gain's Short Bus
Alright Instruments' Chronoblob"

FH-2 Shift Register Random Quantized CVs (2)


video upload by Expert Sleepers

"'Shift Register Random Quantized CVs' from the FH-2.

About three years ago I posted a video on YouTube titled 'disting EX generative piano patch', which used an FH-2 to clock a disting EX running the random CV generation, driving another disting EX playing the multisampled piano.

The random CV generation is now (firmware 1.22) in the FH-2, so we can do the same with one less module. In fact, we can do better, since the FH-2 has more outputs - here there are three random patterns each driving a CV/gate pair on the disting EX.

No human interaction until about 1:30 where I drop out the patterns one at a time. No audio processing - you're hearing the direct output of the disting EX."

Expanding Your Eurorack Setup with the ES9 and VCV Rack Ft. Omri Cohen


video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Bridging between the worlds of software and hardware instruments is a long-standing ideal among electronic musicians. It's easy to imagine why: the precision of control and extensibility of the computer coupled with the tactility of hardware instruments has the potential to open completely new musical dimensions.

Luckily, this type of setup is simpler now than it ever has been. In this video, our pal and hybrid setup aficionado Omri Cohen walks through some ideas for integrating a hardware Eurorack system with the virtual modular synthesizer VCV Rack…focusing on the Expert Sleepers ES-9 Eurorack audio interface as a bridge between the two worlds. In this video, Omri touches on a ton of great patching ideas: using the computer to clock your modular system; using the computer as a processor for hardware audio; and much more.

Terry Riley, Keyboard Study no.1 (as generative modular patch)


video upload by Electrum Modular

"There are several modular synth renditions of Terry Riley’s 'In C' out there, but none (as far as I know) of his keyboard studies, so here goes…

Although Riley played this piece in 1964-65, he did not write it down until the 1990s, and only published it in 2015: https://www.boosey.com/shop/prod/Rile...

His instructions in this book are pretty cryptic, so I try to explain the piece at the beginning of the movie.

I tend not to use MIDI in my modular (except when connecting it to an iPad or keyboard etc), as it’s less malleable than CV. But Expert Sleepers’ addition of a 'MIDI Player' algorithm to the Disting EX gave me the idea to use multiple MIDI files in a more generative way. Thank you to the tireless Os at Expert Sleepers for solving my technical issues (see Disting EX forum on modwiggler).

Robert Carl’s book, Terry Riley's In C:
https://www.google.com/books/edition/...

FWIW, my favorite piano recording of this piece is John Tilbury’s:
https://anothertimbre.bandcamp.com/al...
Released last year, but recorded 'in Hamburg in the late 1970s or early 80s—full details forgotten.'

'Dark Energy' Mini Synth, AJH Chance Delay, Penrose, Vox Digitalis, Radio Music sample/wav player


video upload by DreamsOfWires

"Melodic Eurorack performance with Doepfer A111-5 Mini Synthesizer Voice, the new AJH Synth Chance Delay probability/gate delay, Sonic Potions Penrose quantizer, Music Thing Modular Radio Music wav/sample player, Doepfer A118-2 Noise Random S&H, Noise Engineering Vox Digitalis sequencer, Happy Nerding FX Aid XL, Cosmotronic Cosmix, Expert Sleepers Disting Mk4 as wav/audio recorder, Happy Nerding Isolator headphone/audio output.

A small 84hp rig in a DIY case with 4MS power. I created the sample loops in Audacity from some choir music. FX Aid algorithm is delay into reverb. LFO2 from the Mini Synth triggers the sample & hold clock, this sends random voltages to the quantiser, which converts them into the chosen notes on it's keyboard.

LFO2 also triggers the Chance Delay, which is using the Length control to convert the incoming LFO pulses (square wave) to very long gates - each gate will be completed before it responds to another incoming pulse, meaning it can be used as a clock divider with continuous control, rather than simple preset divisions.

The Chance function determines the probability of the module outputting a gate signal - here I'm using it as a switch to trigger the Vox Digitalis, so with Chance at zero it won't advance the sequencer, whilst at full/100% it will trigger it on every gate it generates. Since those gates are a division of the incoming pulse rate, this means the sequencer will change samples on the Radio Music at a much slower speed than the notes produced by the Mini Synth, which is runs at the same rate as LFO2 and the sample & hold.

Mini Synthesizer Voice is the Eurorack version of the Dark Energy standalone synth.

Alessandro Cortini + MATTHS Rig Tour


video upload by sonicstate

"Alessandro Cortini played a rare UK gig last weekend, and regular Sonic TALK panelist Matt Hodson AKA MATTHS was booked in the support slot.

We figured it was a great opportunity to have them talk about their gear selection and approach to the performance.

Alessandro opted for something minimal to support his completely improvised approach, with two Make Noise Strega (these were designed in conjunction with Alessandro) and two 0-CTRL - sequencer/CV controllers, Strymon Blue Sky and Volante all into an Allen and Heath Zone 96 DJ mixer, the laptop runs Resolume visuals for the show.

http://cortini.bandcamp.com

Matths has a different approach basing his set around pre writtern material and re-voicing larger modular rig, with the Knobula Poly Cinematic for chords, 1010music Bit Box for triggering CV and gates, the Expert Sleepers ES-9 running from the laptop for triggers from Bitwig, the Soma Pulsar-23, Beatstep

Matt uses an analogue parallel compression path to give the stereo feed to front of house a more consistent polished sound.

Octavia Fuzz in Eurorack with bags of character! // Cicely by Expert Sleepers


video upload by DivKid

"Say hello to Cicely! The next module in the analogue line up of Eurorack gear from Expert Sleepers. The module is based on the classic Roger Mayer designed Octavia design (think Jimi Hendrix octave fuzz), while the original is routed as part of guitar FX history here we’re exploring that under voltage control as part of a modular synth system.

You can apply these patches to other distortions you may have so watch along and give the patches a try, from wave shaping basic VCO shapes to dynamic end of chain fuzz, create unique delay shimmer and plenty more."

19:05 CV mangling (it’s not designed for it, but it’s great!)

20:37 Distorting Echoes for battling pitches (Os’s distortion patch tip)



"'Cicely' is an “octave fuzz” effect, inspired by the legendary 'Octavia' guitar pedal, created by Roger Mayer and most notably used by Jimi Hendrix. There is an interesting history of the pedal on Roger's website here. Cicely adapts the concept for the modular environment, adds some extra features, and of course puts the effect under CV control.

The effect is essentially one of adding an octave on top of the input note, but this only really applies to pure input tones – for more complex tones, the sound is changed in all sorts of interesting ways. This is combined with the possibility of overdriving the sound for even more edge, while the unique 'Centre' control adds asymmetrical clipping.

As a bonus feature, Cicely also includes an envelope follower."
