70s Gen Dream - Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Yves Big City


video upload by Isotonik Studios

Demo TWO - 70s Gen Dream - Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Yves Big City


AVAILABLE HERE: https://isotonikstudios.com/product/7..

"A Journey Back to the Dawn of Electronic Music with 70s Gen Dream

The year is 1978. Young Yves, captivated by the sounds of Kraftwerk's "We Are the Robots," is transported to a sonic frontier. The robotic vocals, the pulsating rhythms, the sheer audacity of it all – it's unlike anything he's ever heard, yet it somehow feels like a glimpse into the future.

But amidst the revolutionary sounds, there's also a touch of romanticism, a characteristic melody of the 70s era, where exploration was boundless and imagination fueled creation. As a Frenchman, he can't help but be drawn to the ethereal beauty of Jean-Michel Jarre's "Oxygène," a track that defies explanation, existing in a realm beyond the ordinary.

Inspired by these sonic pioneers, he embarks on a months-long odyssey. His mission: to capture the essence of these vintage sounds and translate them into the modern language of the Novation Circuit Tracks. His vision? To grant every music maker the opportunity to touch the spirit of the 70s, to channel the unbridled creativity of that golden age.

But "70s Gen Dream" goes beyond simply providing the sounds. To spark your creative flame, the pack also features Generative & Experimental Patches.

This innovative feature introduces a unique twist

Ever-evolving soundscapes:These special patches are designed to generate new melodies every time you play them, transforming a basic pattern into a fresh and dynamic soundscape each time it's triggered. It's like rolling the dice for sonic inspiration, keeping your music constantly evolving and surprising.

Imagine crafting a simple bassline that morphs and twists with each key press, adding a layer of organic unpredictability and delightful sonic surprises to your tracks. ✨

Don't just replicate the past. Reimagine it.

Gimme Some (Kick) Drum by Blue Lantern Modules || Full Walkthrough and Sound Demo


video upload by Robots Are Red

"GSDrum, or Gimme Some Drum, or Gimme Some Kick Drum is a 10 hp drum synthesizer module. It really shines as a kick module, but can do other drum sounds such as toms or something out of the syncussion, or act as a bass synth tracking it 1v/oct. This is not a typical kick oscillator using the 'Twin T' approach, GSDrum uses a v/oct tracking triangle core VCO with an OTA based VCA. There is CV control for the trigger of course, along with v/oct tracking, Linear FM, and VCA accent inputs. The Timbre knob shapes the oscillator starting at a sine wave, to a triangle wave, all the way to an overdriven square wave. Influenced by the Korg ER-1 drum synthesizer. The accent input can simulate midi velocity or drive your sound even more.

via Blue Lantern Reverb

"Part of the 'Gimme Some' series. Gimme Some Drum....

What does this module do?

This module is a complete mini synthesizer that specializes in making analog kick drum sounds.

This product does not use a "Twin T" approach to make it's drum kick sound. This is using an actual 1v/octave

triangle core vco, and ota based vca. The shaper circuit that converts a triangle wave into a sine wave was brought to the front panel. The shaper knob was calibrated to start its shaping at the beginning of a sine wave, and end with an overdriven square wave.

This parameter is called 'Timbre'.

This product can produce a wide variety of ultra generic analog kick drum sounds.

Influenced by the Korg ER-1 drum synthesiszer, but laid out in an analog fashion.

-toggle switches are connected to 'timing' capacitors. You can select decay legnths on the fly.

-Depth Knobs let you precisely dial in how much punch, and loudness you want.

-Accent input lets you simulate 'Midi' velocity but with a positive CV input signal. This makes the Amplifier go louder in volume.

This is basically a CV input for the VCA circuit.

-POP parameter creates a clicky sounding, short audible pulse.

All the internal circuitry was optimized for drum kick. You really can't goof up and not make a percussive sound.

All you need is a triggering signal.

Internally Pre-Patch Products: OTA Triangle Core VCO + Sine Wave Shaper + Assist Percussion Utility

Big time savings!"

ALA + RAR Mingles


video upload by After Later Audio

Mingles - Dual Autopanner and Dual 3 Channel Mixer/VCA || After Later Audio + Robots Are Red.

video upload by Robots Are Red

"Mix a synth patch and use Mingles as the VCA.
Blend a signal between two different outputs.
Autopan a mono signal.
Stereoize even more, an already stereo signal.

Mingles is a 12hp Dual 3 Input Mixer with attenuators for each signal, and a large panning knob for each of the two channels. There is a stereo output for each of the two channels, and a mixed stereo output of both channels. There is an internal LFO (Triangle or Pulse) that can be applied to each of the two channel’s panning. The LFO is inverted on channel 2 to allow for mirrored panning between the two channels.

There is also a VCA and external panning CV input in each of the two channels, along with a CV input for control of the LFO rate, and there is an LFO output.

The LFO can be switched between Triangle and Pulse waves with a jumper on the back of the module.

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.

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.

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.

Blue Lantern Lucky 7 - 24db SH01 Low Pass VCF/VCA // Full Walkthrough and Demo


video upload by Robots Are Red

Introducing Lucky 7 by Blue Lantern Modules. This is a 16hp 24db Low Pass filter based on the famous Roland SH01 filter from 1978. Along with the two input filter, this module includes a built in OTA based VCA with two CV inputs, authentic headphone feedback circuit, two subharmonics generators, built in noise, and a good handful of CV inputs.
Just patch a VCO and an Envelope and you are ready to go!

In the video we take a deep dive into each knob and CV input, listen to the filter in various settings, and even look at some feedback self-patching with excellent results.

via this auction

Model: BLM Lucky 7
Width 16hp
Current: +69mA -68mA
PCB Stack: 1 Level, Skiff compatible.

Module type: analog filter, sub harmonic generator, internal vca, white noise generator, (self) oscillator

What does this do?

This particular product is my take on the vintage analog filter found on the Roland SH1 Keyboard. Some key differences from the original
are low end correction on the resonance path (audio level would drop), with voltage control, and I used a modern exponential converter.

The bass frequency will retain nicely on this modern version. No more audio level drop. The 'RCV' can be used to simulate Band Pass sounding tones when used with audio rate external sources..

I also included the famous feedback patch that lucky users of the vintage keyboard would do. Users would patch from the headphone output back into the filter external input.
I duplicated the original discrete headphone circuity and internally patched it for you. All you have to do is turn it up with the 'FBK' knob. Small settings go a long way with this.
It can get strange with too much feedback, in a good way.

24db Low Pass Filter.

Features:

(2) Possible External Audio inputs.
(1) White Noise Generator, Switch Jack internally patched to AIN2 input jack.
(2) Sub Hamronic Generators taken from the SH101 circuitry. Both are accessible by level knobs.
(1) Voltage Controlled Rez, with auto low end level correction.
(1) 1V per octave 'Expo' input.
(1) Linear FM input. Best used during Filter Self Oscilation duties.
(1) Bi-polar FM Attenuinverter. Best used with an external envelope generator.
(1) Internal VCA with 2 possible CV inputs. VCA knob is a manual offset to 'open' the VCA.

What you get:
Mixer +WhiteNoiseGen +Subharmonics +VCF +VCA

All you need is a vco, and envelope generator to complete a compact analog mono voice.


If this was literally your first and only module, it is possible to make sound and noise for entertainment.

SHTH – Sample & Hold / Track & Hold by After Later Audio // Full Walkthrough & Demo


video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we look at SHTH by After Later Audio. This is a straight forward yet powerful 2hp Sample & Hold and Track & Hold module with additional Noise and 'Walk' outputs. The Walk signal is four separate pulse wave oscillators running through a slew."



"SHTH - Sample and Hold - Track and Hold

Create stepped outputs using two different classic synthesis techniques, sample & hold and/or track & hold.

Sample & Hold

The top four jacks make up the sample and hold section. There is a noise output that is normalled to the input so you can pass a gate/trig signal into the SAMP input to get a stepped output at the OUT jack.

IN - Signal that will be sampled, normalled to NSE output
SAMP - When high updates the voltage being sent to the output
NSE - White noise output
OUT - The sampled output (freezes the value from the IN jack when the SAMP jack receives a high signal)
Track & Hold

The bottom four jacks make up the track and hold section. There is a walk signal (a randomish meandering voltage) that is normalled to the input. Track and hold is the opposite of sample and hold in that it will pass the IN value to the OUT jack until the TRACK input receives a high gate. While the TRACK input is high it will hold the value. After the TRACK input goes low, it will begin tracking the IN signal again.

IN - Signal that will be tracked
TRACK - When high the value will be held at the output
WALK - A meandering voltage
OUT - The track output (follows IN while TRACK is low, held voltage while TRACK is high)

Blue Lantern Lunar Modulation Lab VCO/LFO || Demo, Manual, & Patch Tips


video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we dissect the mega powerful Lunar Modulation Lab VCO/LFO by Blue Lantern Modules. This is an 18hp triangle core VCO/LFO based on Buchla and Bergfotron designs, and is stable up to 10 octaves w/ 1V/Oct! The module has 11 different waveform outputs with adjustment switches that brings this module to 17 different waveform options, and that is before you start mixing them together!
We walk through all the outputs and inputs of the module along with some patch tips including self patching."

Blue Lantern Syncussion Plus - Percussion Synthesizer || Full Walkthrough, Manual, & Demo


video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we will boogey with Blue Lantern Module's Syncussion Plus eurorack drum module, inspired by the Pearl Syncussion Drum Synthesizer from the 1970's. While the original Syncussion has a handful of oscillator presets to switch through, the Syncussion Plus breaks open the presets with it's mixer section for more ability to customize. The Plus also has the addition of the Shimmer section which can add great metallic clanginess and shimmery effects to your sound via xor cmos modulation.

This module is great for creating all sorts of drum sounds using the various trigger and vca inputs, and creating other-worldly unique percussion sounds. The module can also be used as a sort of complex oscillator by utilizing the LFO, shimmer, noise, and 2 VCOs with the VCA cv input and 1v/oct input, or routing the output of Syncussion Plus to an external VCA.

(Tip: If the module seems to go crazy and continues to self trigger itself or triggers through the VCA CV and you don't want it to, plugging an unplugged cable into the Piezo input seems to eliminate those rogue internal triggers)

First I give a general overview of the module, followed by a full walkthrough of every single knob, switch, input, output, and button, and the video ends with some sound demos."
