AI012 Wave Animator by AI Synthesis | Full Walkthrough, Demo, and Patch Tips


video upload by Robots Are Red

See the announcement post here.

"This video takes a dive into the Wave Animator by AI Synthesis. This is an 8hp pulse harmonic generator. Depending on your input waveform you can get one or two additional pulses between each pulse of the oscillator. You can control the amplitude (positive or negative) of the second pulse, you can control the distance of that secondary pulse from the initial pulse, and you can control both pulses width together. Each modulator also has a cv input with attenuator.

This module is great for more evolving pulse width style effects, triggering flams, clocking swing, and just distorting the heck out of more organic inputs like strings or voice.

EOS - Ergot Organic Semi-Modular Synthesizer by Blue Lantern Modules || Full Walkthrough and Demo


video upload by Robots Are Red

"This video takes a look at the new semi-modular synthesizer by Blue Lantern Modules, the Ergot Organic Synthesizer. This is a full synthesizer based on a plethora of Blue Lantern Modules all intermingled in one standalone synth. Just add v/oct for pitch and a gate/trigger for the envelope and you are good to go.

If you wanted to build this in eurorack, you would need the following modules:
x2 Lunar Modulation Lab
Subharmonics Generator
CSVCO Noise Oscillator
x2 APE Accented Percussion Envelope Generator
Parallax/Blades Filter
x2 Mini Digital LFO
Dwarf Star Stereo Delay

OXI CORAL – Polyphonic Multipart Synthesizer || How to Operate


video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we take a look at demystifying the Oxi Coral polyphonic synthesizer eurorack module. Coral is basically 8 Mutable Instruments Plaits in one with more envelope control, filter, chorus, space reverb, and a wav player. You can use it as an 8 voice polyphonic synthesizer, or as a full on groovebox synthesizer with up to 8 different midi parts.
This video goes over all the functions and functionality of coral, how to assign groups, saving & loading presets, and CV control (and assignment).
This is not a sound demo for all the different synth engines. Think of it more as a video manual.

via Blue Lantern Modules Reverb Shop

This module has the modern 3109 filter chip. The older 3109 chip is found in the vintage Roland keyboards like SH-101.

What I did is add resonance audio drop out compensation and precision resistors for the exponential converter. The module

will easily track 5+ octaves when in full self oscillation. Band pass was also added as a bonus. The band pass steals the

show, as many have not heard an sh101 with band pass.

-24db low pass

-18db band pass

-Internal VCA for easy voice building

-FM Bi Polar CV input for the Filter

-Envelope Input for the VCA

-Dual Audio Inputs, one direct, and the other with over drive.

CLOVERLEAF - Intellijel Case Interface and Headphone Module by After Later Audio


video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we take a look at the new 1u Intellijel case interface module, Cloverleaf. This module can act as a line-in/line-out module, a pedal interface, and/or a headphone output utilizing the 1/4" jacks built into your intellijel case.

Jump to any section of the video here:
00:00 - Introduction
01:53 - Installation

09:05 - Microphone
09:29 - Pedal Interface

13:48 - Guitar
15:00 - Some music"



An interface for the case 1/4" jacks in Intelljel cases. The jacks are marked as if they are part of the case, so the jacks marked out, require an input. I know it's confusing, but my brain just may be a little backwards.

The module sports both input and output for either a consumer line level (0.447Vpk) or a professional line level (1.095Vpk). These levels are controllable via jumper on the back of the module. It can also have a single input and output channel switched to pedal level. The case output is fed to the headphone amp that has a corresponding level control. The module otherwise does not have any level control and relies on using a VCA or other module to perform any level controls.

The module can essentially be run in one of three modes:

1) Stereo line level in and out

2) Stereo line level in and out via the left side and mono pedal in and out on the right side. In this mode the stereo line levels leverage TRS on the 1/4" jacks. You can use the included 3.5mm couplers to get TRS on the 3.5mm side.

3) Mono line level in and out via the left side and mono pedal in and out on the right side.

For Palette 64hp users only have two 1/4" jacks. You can choose if you want to use the case jacks as either inputs, outputs, or one input and one output.
