RF Diode Dream VCF acid jam 138 breakbeat


video upload by Radical Frequencies Modular

"New clip with Diode Dream Vcf ! 138bpm analog jam. Dpvco square wave goes into RF transistor mixer that goes into Diode Dream Vcf. A modified RD6 is used as drum machine. Listen to this glassy and bubbly resonance how beautiful it sounds especially when there is some fm amount from the vco !"

See the announcement post with additional details here.

Radical Frequencies Introduces Diode Dream VCF


video upload by Radical Frequencies Modular

"Audio path : Dpvco into mixer and then into Diode Dream Vcf .
The oscillator wave at first it’s saw and later in video becomes square. The sequence is in 303 acid style using a lot of RF modules like VCAs - mixers and vc envelopes for making the 303 accent function. A modified RD6 is used as drum machine."



"5 Pole diode ladder filter with multistage variable out of low pass and band pass

Diode Dream VCF is a 5 Pole diode ladder filter but instead of diodes, the circuit in the filter core section, uses transistors in diode configuration.

The filter has a switch selecting between 5 or 4 STAGES of filtering.

You can access the low pass output via the LP out jack.

There is also a VARIABLE out with a dedicated knob. That knob is a mixer of the different pole outputs that are opposite in phase and in the middle, it gives a band pass [BP] out. When in BP the gain is lower in volume which is completely normal.

VARIABLE mixing knob can be altered from less poles to more poles, more specific, VARIABLE out sends 1 or 2 stages at left side and 4 or 5 stages in the right side. That depends from the position switch of STAGES, so if the switch is in 4 position the VARIABLE out sends 1 (full CCW) and 4 (full CW) stages. If the switch is in 5 position, the VARIABLE out sends 2 (full CCW) and 5 (full CW) stages.

This arrangement also affects the Band Pass slope.

The CV-FM input has a dedicated pot for cv amount that is normaled to the audio input of the filter.

This allows for instant fm tones as the audio input becomes a modulator for the filter frequency.

If there is a jack inserted this connection is broken and you can use this knob as cv amount of an envelope or lfo.

There is one audio INPUT with amount pot and a 2nd CV input jack [CV2].

This CV input can be used as volt per octave input control. When the filter is in full resonance the module can be used as sine wave oscillator with good tuning of 2 octaves.

There is a resonance BOOST switch in order to achieve self oscillation. If the RES knob is fully closed and the BOOST is on, then the filter has still some feedback that would be very useful to emphasise the highs and lessen the low frequencies. When BOOST is off and the RES knob is fully closed and the INPUT level fully open the sound will be a bit oversaturated, so you can try turning down the INPUT level knob at 2-3 o’clock .

The filter has discrete through hole components with low noise transistors that are hand selected one by one with very high hfe values and are also matched in pairs for the buffer differential amplifiers and the input output stages of the ladder. An IC opamp is used for resonance gain compensation.

In the original design when the resonance is turned up the gain of the filter decreases drastically. The filter now has resonance gain compensation and while it still loses some gain when in resonance, the gain difference, is now is acceptable and the sound of the filter is pure and warm without losing the character. The resonance compensation is achieved by increasing the input gain while the resonance opens, so this gives a special character.

Because of the filter design the input signal does not clip instantly but instead it saturates the sound musically and the more you push it the richer the output in harmonics and natural and musical compression.

When the resonance is in self oscillation and the audio input is pushed, the sound gets glassy and squelchy. This filter gets acidic but it maintains the clarity of the high end, yet sounds warm and very rubbery. Detailed bass, creamy mids and crispy smooth highs.

Many different tones are waiting to be discovered by the user dealing in different combinations of the input gain, the resonance, the frequency FREQ knob and the VARIABLE shape of the filter."

RF analog dawless downtempo


video upload by Radical Frequencies Modular

"Radical Frequencies analog dawless jam downtempo . The bass melody sequence is from dpvco ( square and saw waves ) through the SH Vcf. lucky voltages sends a noise source into RF 12db multi Vcf and then into VCAs with envelopes for making the hi hats ! Kick and snare are diy 808 modules . The final summing is from RF Audio cv mixer using the transistor out . The master clock is from the RF vc adsr generator. Using muxlicer , O&C and chaos for sequencing and triggering."

125bpm RF Modular jam


video upload by Radical Frequencies Modular

"This is the first jam for 2023 ,
125 bpm old school Goa trance style. The bass is the AD Multi Vco into SH Vcf , I mix the wave from Vco with a sub square oscillator too .
The wave at the start of the clip is a saw that’s In phase with the sub wave , after changing the wave into triangle saw wave in opposite phase .
The melody is the DPVCO through transistor mixer and then in high pass mode through 12db Multi Vcf .
The drums are analog as always .
The thing here is the transpose of the sequenses via midi that I play real time ;) The sequences are from sq1 and OC .
