Doepfer Basic System 3 - EP.1 - Subtractive Synthesis

video upload by Stazma

"The creator of eurorack, Dieter Doepfer, has a new full system to offer: the Basic System 3.
This new system is fully analog, and a nice mix between classic subtractive synthesis building blocks, that we are going to check out today, and more 'West Coast' oriented modules (to be explored in future videos).
As we'll see we can already go quite far just staying into subsctractive land. Let's dive in! Have fun!"

Diving into the Cosmos eurorack module

video upload by Stazma

"Hey there! Here is an intro of how to use the Cosmos, a pretty crazy eurorack module, a patch programming interface or platform, as I like to call it, from Black Noise Modular. It does so many things that I'm just going to show you a few that enjoyed the most.
It is a very deep and complex module but that encourage experimention by trial and error in a very nice way, there's two input and a lot of outputs to choose from.

Have fun!"

"Cosmos is a new kind of module that will help you to creating complex modulation, sounds, patterns with ease and will lead you to new sounds territories.

Inspired by early analog computers, Cosmos is a unique, innovative, very flexible and fully analog module allowing it to be used as: VCO, LFO, Ring Mod, Polarizer, “VCA”, “LPG”, Phase Lock Loop, Cross-Modulation, Minimum, Maximum, Logic Gates, Waveshaper, Complex gate generator, Fuzz, Distorsion, Gate extractor, Trig extractor, Gate generator, Voltage generator, Trig Generator, comparator, window comparator, complex comparator, Half-Rectifier, Full-Rectifier, Inverter, Buffered Multiples, Mixer, Difference, Compressor, Sidechain, compressor, VC Clipper, VC Switch, Clock doubler, Envelope follower, and more.

With its wide fields of application Cosmos can replace many modules but it will also bring new colors to your palette thanks to its unique character. This makes Cosmos the ideal module whether you have a small case or a big system. 100% analog and with an intuitive interface Cosmos is also very easy to use, no menu and button combo problems.

Inspired by the past and crafted for the future, 100% analog Cosmos was not only thought to be the center of any system but also to blend perfectly with the rest of your case to form a consistent and coherent system.

Cosmos was designed not only to be a swiss army knife module but also to push you to explore and you help create new sounds and explore sonic territories that were previously unattainable."

A Vostok Instruments polyphonic patch

video upload by Stazma

"Let's go four voice poly with the Vostok Instruments modules today in this quick little demo.
I've been sent those module alongside another one that I can't talk about yet and I really wanted to try this setup with the NiftyKEYZ. I'm glad I did as I found it to sound very good and I had a blast doing the demo track of this video (will probably turn it into a full track at some point).

Have fun!"

Favorite Sounds From the Verbos Electronics Harmonic Oscillator

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll talk to you about one of my favorite eurorack module, the flagship from Verbos Electronics: the Harmonic Oscillator.

I've done this video at the demand of one of my former student at Les Escales Buissonnière. I hope you will enjoy watching it as much as I had fun doing it."

Real World Interface by Verbos Electronics - Overview & Demo

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll be showing you the new Real World Interface by Verbos Electronics.
This is sort of the first contact with the module, trying all the things I thought i could do and listening to different stuff processed throught it.
It's a very interesting and deep module, and there's so many ways to use it that I'll do a second video with a few more patch ideas soon.

Have fun!"

00:00 Intro
01:11 Fast forward unboxing & first patches
02:41 Module Overview
04:23 Patching a compressor
06:04 Pre-amp & saturation test
08:22 Drum machine driven patches
14:17 A.G.C, Fundamental & Locked VCO outputs
17:54 Stereo pre-amplification & enveloppe follower
22:38 End talk

The Real World Interface is a 3 channel external processing module intended for connecting with sound sources outside the system. The channels are oriented as vertical channel strips. The left and right channels have a built-in condenser microphone, preamp, envelope follower with variable decay and gate extractor. In addition to a preamp, envelope follower and gate extractor, the center channel also has an Automatic Gain Control (fixed high ratio compressor), fundamental extractor (tracking lowpass filter), frequency detector and locked oscillator. Internal microphones are useful for introducing electro acoustic room sound into the modular. Envelope followers can be used to have external signal levels effect parameters such as filter cutoff or level for building dynamics processors. Gate extraction allows external sounds such as metronomes, clicks, claps or room sounds to advance sequencers, trigger sounds or initiate other events. The Frequency Detector can extract the pitch of simple monophonic sounds but is also a semi chaotic CV source in the tradition of such modules since their introduction in the 1960’s. The Locked Oscillator plays a sine wave at the same pitch as the input signal.

208 Timbre by Triglav Modular - Demo & Overview

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll be showing you the 208 Timbre wavefolder by Triglav Modular. It is a recreation in eurorack of the "timbre" circuit from the classic Buchla Music Easel sound module, the model 208 "Stored Program Sound Source". It's a very simple module but it does sound superb and the look and interface are a joy to use.

Altar 2 by Ritual Electronics - Demo and Overview

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll be showing you the Altar 2, a very good sounding and looking analog 18dB/octave state variable discrete filter, made by Ritual Electronics in Marseille, France.

Because of it's look and the fact there's no filter in the Buchla & Tiptop Audio line Ive decided to use it in my 'Buchla Suitcase' for a recent two weeks modular class and everyone liked it there.

Have fun!

00:00 Intro
01:02 Overview
07:29 Talking Filter Patch
09:51 Ping It!
14:07 Drum Machine processing w/ System80 880
19:01 Feedback patching & jam
22:29 End talk"

The Ritual Electronics Altar is a 3-pole 18db/oct state-variable filter with the ability to smoothly crossfade between filter types. The module's resonance has an attenuverter in it's CV input which allows for quick bumps in the resonance that can act as "accents" to liven up your patterns. Additionally the module's input gain can drive the filter core into distortion, and the ability to run two inputs into the filter allows you to push it even harder. This combined with the module's crossfading filter design give Altar multiple options for ever changing, yet still very rich timbres.

Redesigned discrete transistor core
Filter type can smoothly fade between Bandpass, Lowpass, and Highpass modes
Input gain stage drives into distortion
CV for filter type blend (Color), filter cutoff frequency, and resonance—each with dedicated attenuverters

Vector Mixing with Planar 2 by Intellijel

video upload by Stazma

"Hey there folks! Here's another of those short patch video I like to do at the moment! This on is about another of my favorite patches (often those I show to my students when I teach modular synthesis).

This one is about using the Planar 2 to mix waveforms from your VCOs, even some already modified by other modules such as filters or wavefolder, in order to create sort of 'morphing', wavetable like, sounds, while remaining in the analog realm.

Have fun watching!"

Non-Linear Memory Machine by Holocene Electronics

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll be showing you the Non-Linear Memory Machine (NLMM for short), a stereo digital delay with pitch, freeze and granular functions. I had a great fun trying out this module, many thanks to @holocene_electronics for sending this to me to make this demo."

via Holocene Electronics

"The Non-Linear Memory Machine is an audio buffer device. Set to a short buffer length, the NLMM is capable of creating alien phaser sounds to reverb and delays. While in a longer buffer length Frippertronics / time lag accumulator style looping is available.



Controls the delay time of the signal. The delay time can span from a few milliseconds to up to 15 seconds, depending on the buffer length. Unlike analog delays like tape or BBD delays, when modulated the pitch of the signal does not drift. Instead, it compresses and expands time in interesting textures via a custom time-stretching algorithm. When activating Freeze via the freeze switch, this knob functions as the play head's position within the buffer.


Randomizes the Time/Scrub control, adding random jitters to the position of the playhead and diffuses the signal in a way that can be utilized as a pseudo reverb effect. (experiment with the Time/Scrub knob and Feedback knob to create glitchy reverbs.)


Pitch shifts the signal +- 1 octave. This knob snaps to perfect 5ths and an octave but you can dial it in between intervals. Nice crunchy aliasing when pitch shifting is applied.


Crossfades between the dry signal and processed wet signal.


Feedbacks the delayed signal back into the input. Set it up to 4’o’clock when in Medium or Long mode to experiment with TLA or Frippertronic style looping.


Switch between delay ranges according to the list below.

\SHORT – 20ms ~ 320ms

\\MEDIUM – 320ms ~ 1.6sec

\\\LONG – 1.45sec ~ 15sec


The Freeze switch acts like an infinite sustain pedal, but you can also scrub through the buffer with the time/scrub knob when activated. Red means recording, and unlit means the buffer is frozen / not recording. Great for practicing scales or droning away."

Tiptop Audio & Buchla - Fake Delay & Bouncing Ball

video upload by Stazma

"Hello there!
Today I'll share with you a classic modular synth patch that I really enjoy using, it's also a great exercise to get a feel for how VCA's and envelopes can work together. It's actualy just one of the many ways you can patch this, wich will use any sound source (258t here) with the 281t, 257t and 292t as the main building blocks (you can of course patch this with similar modules). I like it in the Buchla contect as you can play with 292t modes and get different sounds this way.
Anyway, I hope this will be helpful. Have fun."

video upload by Stazma

"Triglav Modular has been kind enought to send me on of their brand new '208 Timbre' module to try out, so I can make some demo videos for you all.
Here is my very first patch with it. It does sound damn good!"

via Triglav

"The 208 Timbre is a faithful recreation of the wavefolder from the later version of the Stored Program Sound Source Model 208.
Two additional trimmers were added to enable calibrating input and output levels to match any Eurorack oscillator."

5 minutes jam with the 880 - #808day 2023

video upload by Stazma

"More infos and affiliate links in the description // Support on Patreon to get samples from this session:

Here is a jam with my Repeat Eater setup, using only my 880 and it's signal processing chain (Moog MF-101, Gamechanger Audio Light Pedal, Earthquaker Devices Avalance Run on an aux send for the dubby vibes).

It was meant as a rehearsal for myself as I have a show with this setup later this week. I'll record a session with the whole acid thing going. But to celebrate this 808day I wanted to embrace the full minimalistic drum machine experience. I'm surprised that it's actualy not that boring to listen to hahaha.

You'll be able to download the session on Patreon and use any the parts you want as samples in your tracks if you want.

Free sample pack recorded with a Tegeler Audio VTRC right here:
