ALGO Quad Complex VCO by RYK Modular

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"RYK modular did it again. ALGO is a quad complex stereo VCO that will serve both the beginner as the advanced sound explorer.
ALGO's four oscillators can be used to create complex FM or additive sound textures (chords, pads, organs). A unique Algorithm Display gives an idea of what affects what, and it looks great. In a typical 4-Operator scenario, you can use M1 to M4 CV to modulate the volume of each voice, but you can also switch to FM mode and unleash chaos.
The module uses the 'sum of sines' technique to sculpt new sounds, but you can also use Warp and Fold to do traditional waveshaping and folding.

The module offers detuning, chorus and a built in VCA."

"ALGO's four oscillators can be configured in series or parallel combinations, to create Complex FM or additive sound textures.

A unique Algorithm Display indicates the signal flow from one oscillator to another - easy to understand FM with pretty twinkly lights !

Each oscillator has controls for Level and Frequency, allowing easy adjustment of FM timbres, no menu diving snorkels needed.

Modulation inputs for Frequency or Level for each oscillator - patch in a couple of Envelopes, and you have an instant FM synth voice.

Bored of Sine waves ? A generous Wave Warp control bends things through Triangle to Pulse wave and back again.
Wave Warp can be applied to Carrier, Modulator or both types of oscillator.

For the more discerning mangler, Wave Folding is also available in three delicious flavours; Symmetric, Asymmetric and Soft Clip !

A Global Detune spread control with CV input is great for creating Netflix apocalypse drones that descend into the abys.

Lastly an onboard Stereo Chorus can add a vivacious 1980's shimmer to all your FM creations.

Oh, nearly forgot. It's Stereo !"

RYK Modular Algo improvised play with friends

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"My first play with the RYK Algo FM module. Using an 8-step loop from the Oct Tone, a bit of delay from the Milky Way, some reverb and cassette saturation from the Chroma Console. I then foolishly threw in a VCO from the Batumi II through the Sqwk Dirty filter and sequenced from the meloDICER, all of which I'm using for the first time. I'm not sure it gels all the time, but I was having a lovely time exploring."

4/1/24 Roland (& RYK, Lana) System 100m + Trogotronic 676 + Zerosum Inertia PLXNA2 + Lexicon PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"The RYK Modular 185 sequencer for Roland System 100m sequences two 112 oscillators, which run into the 121 VCF into the 130 VCA, with an envelope from the 140. The 130 goes to the Zerosum Inertia PLXNA2, which goes to the Mackie Onyx 1640, with some Lexicon PCM 70 (Cascade BPM). The RYK 185 also sequences a Lana 212 VCO, which runs into the FM CV on the PLXNA2. This all produces the bass line melody. Another output on the right 112 VCO goes to the input on the Trogotronic 676, which creates the dissonant drone that is slowly faded in on the Mackie (with a lot more PCM 70)."

video upload by DivKid

"What an amazing weekend we've just had! Here's a video with some of the people at the London Synth & Pedal Expo 2024. Held over this past weekend (Saturday and Sunday the 16th+17th of March 2024) in Studio 9294 in Hackney Wick, the London Synth & Pedal Expo is a free to attend show with plenty of synths, modular and pedal FX on show for people to come and play with.

As it takes good people to make good events (and the good gear we love) I wanted to focus on the people, asking who they are and what they do, more specifically how would they explain what they do to someone with no idea about synths, pedals and music tech. That led to some funny answers, all spread around various bits of b roll and footage from the event."

Modular - complexe sequence

video upload by ALEQ Modular

"One way to build complexe sequences with modular:
- Multiple sequencers (here some Ritournelle CV Generator from LE)
- A Matrix mixer (the Attenuverter bank from LE too)
- Of course, some synth voices, here with the RYK Vector Wave.
- And to glue all together, a delay. The 4MS Dual Looping Delay

The goal is to route the sequences to the synth voices.
With the matrix, we can mix these sequences in real time. Inverting, adjusting the range etc.
And if all sequences have different clock division and number of steps, the result can be very complexe.
To stay in harmony, a quantizer is inserted between the matrix and the synth voices. here a Klavis CalTrans."

Neuzeit Instrument WARP - Additive synthesis

video upload by ALEQ Modular

"I'm just receiving the new Neuzeit Instrument WARP.
Because I'm a bit obsessed by additive synthesis, I wanted to try it quickly...

So here a test of the additive synthesis part of this module.
Yes: I'm not doing a full review of it: only the spectrum edition (and a bit of the SPEC menu too)

To resum, I must admit that contrary to what we may think, the edition is pretty easy and fast. It just need to spend few minutes to read the quick start guide. So it's quite easy to build evoltive and complex sound.
( takes time, but it's because there a lot on it, not because of ergonomic issues)

In addition to the WARP, I'm checking the VECTOR WAVE from RYK, which seems similar in some ways. Also easy to use. And finally, a small reminder of the Kawai K5000R, beast of additive synthesis but too hard to program."

See the announcement post for Neuzeit Instrument's WARP here.

1. Synthfest UK 23: Sequential - Trigon 6 Desktop
At SynthFest UK 2023, we had the opportunity to chat with Chris from Sequential, a part of the Focusrite group. Chris introduced us to the Trigon 6 Desktop, the latest addition to Sequential's synthesizer lineup. This compact desktop version of the Trigon 6 packs a powerful punch, offering three oscillators and a distinctive Dave Smith ladder filter. Designed for those seeking a space-saving solution without compromising on sound quality, the Trigon 6 Desktop retains all the features of its larger sibling, including patch recall, a versatile effects section with various modulation possibilities, and the distinctive feedback control that allows you to sculpt sub-harmonic richness.

Trigon 6 Desktop Price: $2,499
2. Synthfest UK 2023: Calc And the Prophet X
At Synthfest UK 2023, we caught up with Calc from Sequential, and he gave us the lowdown on the Prophet X. Now, you might be thinking, Prophet X? Haven't we seen that before? Well, you're right, but this hybrid instrument has been quietly making waves in the music world. It combines digital and analog elements, with digital oscillators and a unique twist in the form of multi-sample-based instruments. Yes, you heard that right, it's not just your run-of-the-mill synth; it's a full-on sampler too, boasting an impressive 50 gigabytes of memory for your custom samples. You can treat it like a rompler, a sample player, or even use those samples as oscillators, creating a whole new realm of sonic possibilities.

Plus, it's packed with stereo goodness, allowing you to explore a wide soundstage with ease. It's not your typical synth, and that's what makes its a favourute of Calc's

Looking for some more info on the Prophet X? Check out Sequential's official page:

NightRider by Ryk Modular

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Night Rider is a quad resonant filter with a built in sequencer. It has four bandpass filters that can be used in parallel and serial configurations, a mono allpass filter in two flavors and an amazing karplus strong mode.
It works in many configurations, but it has a strong preference for more complex sources and abolutely shines with something big and polyphonic like Vector Wave or Knobula's Poly Cinematic. While this may seem as a 'too many options' module, you can easy find your way after getting lost in a patch or two. Absolutely stunning module."

M175 SYSTEM 100M Triple Resonator

Bringing the Lush 70's sound of Multiband Resonators to the System 100m

Introducing the new updated M175 Triple Resonator from RYK Modular.

Consisting of three resonant Band Pass Filters arranged in parallel, the M175 is great for adding some shape and character to a sound.

Use the triple peaks to add acoustic style resonant spikes, or modulate them to create dramatic phaser style swooshes and sweeps.

Or carefully tune the centre frequencies to create formant style vocal noises from waveforms with high harmonic content such as pulse waves.

The M175 contains three dual Vactrols to control the centre frequency of each resonator, which add a small amount of slew to the frequency modulation, famously associated with classic Buchla modules.


Three Vactrol controlled Band Pass Filters arranged in normalised parallel, or can be used as three separate filters.

Audio input signal is normalised to all three resonators, but can be overridden by inserting a jack into the resonators 1st inputs allow them to be used separately.

A mix output is available that sums the output of all three resonators, by inserting a jack into a resonators individual output overrides its output from the mix output.

Keyboard CV is supplied via the standard System 100m DIN connector, to the 1st modulation input of each resonator.

The 2nd input of the first resonator is normalised to each of the other two resonators

Authentic high quality reproduction of Roland System 100m panel, with 100m grey paint finish and 70's off white screen print.
