Gotharman Little deFormer Granular Workstation

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"Granular workstation with sampler, synth, effects processor and sequencer

Gotharman's Little deFormer combines a granular effects processor with special effects like TimeStretcher, StepGranulator and PitchShaper and more usual effects like Reverb, delay, distortion, compressor, filters and bit manipulation, with some special parameters, with a 100 minutes sampler, a synth and a step sequencer. A MIDI Note Randomizer is also included.

Both the samplings and external gear, connected to it's 2 audio input can be effected. A complete list of effects can be found in the specs section below. Watch and hear Little deFormer in action, in the video's section. I have planned to use the Little deFormer as a platform for engineering new effects, so additional effects will be added now and then, which will be available as free downloads on this site. These updates will be available as MIDI sysex files in".syx" format, and you will need a program like MidiOx to download these to Little deFormer.

The 4note polyphonic sampler makes it possible to record your own samplings directly from the 2 audio inputs, or resample it's audio output. Samplings are stored in FLASH RAM for instant recall, without any loading times. Up to 100 minutes/999 samplings can be kept. Start and end points can be changed in realtime and modulated, and it also has functions like AutoChop, for a conveniant and easy way to cut up long samplings. Each sampling has it's own Phaze effect and filter with LPF, LFP2, BPF, BPF8, HPF, ADD, BEF, BASS, LOFI and SHAPER modes, and a filter mix parameter. It is also possible to adjust the filter response, to create filter types, that have never been heard before. The Little deFormer comes loaded with samplings of other Gotharman gear. Instead of samplings, it is also possible to use Little deFormers buildin oscillators for sound generation. They can morph from sinewave to triangle to sawtooth to squarewave to noise. Pulsewidth modulation is possible on all waveforms.

Gotharman's zaTurn Now Available

Demos in previous postw here, also on Gotharman's here.

via Gotharman's:

"Gotharman’s has today released a new polyphonic modular synthesizer, called zaTurn. It has a number of modules, which are divided into 4 groups, to make polyphony possible. It comes with some newly designed self-oscillating 12db dual LPF/BPF analog filters." 10 zaTurn’s are currently available for pre-ordering from EUR 1709,- 10% off at .

Additional details:

"Zaturn is a polyphonic/multi-timbral modular synthesizer with memory. All connections between modules, module settings, sequences and sample assignments can be memorized for instant recall.
Like many other Gotharman instruments, each preset contains 2 versions of the preset, that can be morphed between. With one knob, you can morph all the settings of a complete modular system!
It will also hold all your samplings and wavetables in memory, even after a power recycle.

Zaturn has a number of build-in modules, which are divided into 4 equal groups, A, B, C and D. Within each of these groups, it is possible to arrange the modules in 2 parts, so Zaturn has 8 parts in total. Each part can be trigged separately, and they have their own separate output module.
Keeping the modules in groups, made it possible to add the Favorite Sound system from SpazeDrum!

Part 1 and 2 in Group A can each be set in polyphonic mode, so that Zaturn can be up to 2 x 4 notes polyphonic. Modules in groups B, C and D can be linked to Group A, to get the same sounds on each polyphonic note, or they can be unlinked to have different sounds on each polyphonic note.

Like most other Gotharman instruments, each of the 8 parts can also just be in monophonic mode, for 8 completely separate parts.

Zaturn comes with a set of newly engineered 12 db dual self-resonating analog filters, with a special character. Each Group has one dual analog filter. These filters are arranged as LPF and BPF in parallel to each other.

8 Patch Points are also available, for inter-connection of the 4 Groups.

1024 preset, 1024 songs, 64 favorite sounds and up to 8192 samplings can be held in its internal FLASH memory.

Unlike the Anamono X, which had 2 separate bus systems, one for audio and one for modulation, Zaturn only has one bus, that handles both audio and modulation, so everything can be connected to everything.

The modules of each Group (4 groups in total):
- 2 standard Gotharman Oscillators (8 in total) - Waveforms, pitched noise, drum oscillators, samplings, wavetables.
-1 Oscillator B (4 in total) – A special oscillator with a manipulative sine wave.
-1 Noise Generator (4 in total) – While the oscillators can output pitched noise, a simple unpitched white noise generator is also available.
-1 Dual analog filter (4 in total) – 12 db LPF and BPF in parallel, with a special character.
- 1 digital filter (4 in total) - 27 filter types. Standard filters, triple filters, sharp filters, tube filters...
- 2 VCA's (8 in total) - with ADSR envelope, 16 different characteristics and a clip parameter. Can be trigged by any source.
- 2 Effects Processors (8 in total) - Many of the LD effects plus a new reverb, a wavefolder and some new pitch effects.
- 4 LFO's (16 in total) - With variable waveform and curve. Key syncable.
- 2 Envelopes (8 in total) - ADSR + decay envelope with loop options. Can be trigged by any source.
-2 Sample and Hold Generators (8 in total) .
- 1 Ring VCA (4 in total) – With several modes, like Ring Modulator, AND, XOR and Mix.
- 2 Output modules (8 in total -1 for each part) - Handles the final output level and the stereo panning."

Berlin School Electronica // Gotharman meets 5U Marienberg & Oakley Modular Synth


"Gotharman's Little Deformer 3, Gotharman's PolySpaze and my Marienberg + Oakley 5U Modular Synthesizer are having little Berlin School kind of synth jam session.

First, I patched up a typical analog synth sound with my 5U Marienberg/Oakley Modular Synth, which let me transpose the VCO and add fast FM with two switches.

I then programmed a 4 note sequence on Gotharman's Little Deformer 3 and sent it to the Modular via the CV.OCD MIDI to CV converter, which is easier for musical CV sequencing than the Deformer's own CV outputs.

The Linnstrument MIDI controller triggers the red Gotharman PolySpaze polysynth, which plays a morphable pad sound. Very simple, no MPE, etc. All audio goes into the Little Deformer 3, where it is mixed with the LD3's own sounds and processed with delay and granular audio FX.

On the LD3 there are three percussive parts playing and another 5 step sequence, which I fade in around the middle or so. All sounds can be muted, volume-controlled and even modulated with the mappable fron panel knobs. Of course, I also created a second morph layer, with a slightly different melody and changed FX settings, that produce more glitchiness and also tighter delay FX.

It was fun :) Let me know if you have questions in the comments below! Thanks for watching!

"Crooked Teeth" Cover ♬ Death Cab for Cutie on Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 #TTNM


"Here's another Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 groovebox song-mode thing. A weird synth cover of Death Cab for Cutie's 'Crooked Teeth'. Some liberties were taken ;-P
All sounds created and sequenced on the LD3. Voice recorded separately and mixed and processed on a Zoom R16."

Fell in Love with a Girl / The White Stripes / Covered with Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 #TTNM

"Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 synthesizer covers The White Stripe's 'Fell in Love with a Girl'. This has been a favorite song of mine, ever since I learned power chords on my Squier electric guitar. I'm way past that though and just let synths play for me nowadays. Well ... after I program those songs manually into their memory for hours on end ... although with the Little deFormer 3's "song mode" it's actually fun and even a zen-like experience ;-P

All sounds made on the LD3. Voice sampled and sequenced and then deFormed with onboard FX."

♫ JOURNEY OF THE PRAIRIE KING ♫ on Gotharman's zaTurn Modular Synth [Stardew Valley VGM Cover] #TTNM


"This is a video game music cover of Stardew Valley's "Journey of the Prairie King" overworld theme, created entirely on Gotharman's zaTurn modular synthesizer. I must admit I haven't played the mini game at all, but I stumbled upon this tune and it's so damn catchy! :D :D :D

To get it into the zaTurn, I looked up Stoh Shiba's piano sheet music of the piece as a starting point and programmed that into the sequencer, taking a few creative liberties. Because the zaTurn only supports up to 64 steps per track, I had to split the song up into 14 presets. Luckily, copy and paste works so well on the Gotharman instruments and there are multiple ways to enter notes into the devices. After I completed writing the sequencer presets, using only a simple zaTurn voice patch, I started the actual sound design process and the arrangement of the various pieces in the Gotharman song mode.

I only used samples for the quirky vocals at the end of the song. The rest is all patched internally on the zaTurn. The one-take recording received subtle EQ and compression in Cubasis afterwards and that was it.

Gotharman's Urano: STARGAZER-inspired Modular Synth Patch Demo #TTNM


"Møffenzeef's open-source STARGAZER wavetable drone synth has intrigued me for a long time. So I tried to create a patch on my Gotharman Urano modular synthesizer inspired by it. Of course, if you want the real deal, you need to buy or build an actual Stargazer, but I was interested to see where I would end up with that challenge on Gotharman's Urano.

I patched two wavetable oscillators into a lowpass filter module, from there onwards to the Gotharman bit crusher effect, into another lowpass filter and at the end of the chain into a virtual distortion module. Since I only had nine knobs at my disposal on the Urano, I chose to toggle LFO modulation on and off via switches at the bottom, with LFO rates also being controlled by the parameter knobs. So dual knob assignments, like on the Benjolin. It's fun. The wavetables I used are from the user repository at They're way less wild than on the original Stargazer, so I'll experiment some more on that front.

Gotharman's Urano: ANALOG FILTER Swap & WAVETABLE Tutorials #TTNM


"This video shows you how to swap analog filter boards inside Gotharman's Urano modular synth, which is a very simple procedure that can totally change your analog sounds :)

The Urano comes with two dual channel analog filter boards installed. A 12dB Lowpass design and a Multi Filter, each offering you two separate analog filters, so four analog filters in total. You can swap one or both of these out for other available filters from Gotharman's online shop."

Berlin School on the Balcony // Gotharman's TinyLD Granular Synth #TTNM


"Playing some Berlin School electronic space music with my Gotharman TinyLD mkII on the sunny balcony. The TinyLD is Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 granular synthesizer workstation in a smaller, more portable form factor. It has fewer knobs and buttons, but the same screen, processor and general feature set as its bigger sister. I've modded my TinyLD with a light dependent resistor (LDR) for gestural control, as well as with three knobs and two switches.

More info on the modification here: [see this post]

For this jam session I created an analog-style bass line, using the awesome sounding new State Variable Filter algorithms from the recent LD3/TinyLD software update. Then I added an electronic string-like pad sound and some bleeps, bloops and noise hits. The LDR controls the filter cutoff on the pad sound, letting me spontaneously add some variation by waving my hand over the top right corner of the TinyLD. Of course I also programmed both morph layers with slightly different note sequences and effects settings. I also use one of the MIDI switches to freeze the mandatory granular effects ;-)

Mozart? On Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 synthesizer & groovebox?! #TTNM


"Yeah, okay, this was a test how difficult it would be to program actual notes from another music piece into Gotharman's Little deFormer 3 sequencer. Turns out the various sequencer editing modes make this not very hard at all ... it's quite convenient actually, especially with the step recording mode, which I seem to have criminally neglected in the past.

No samples or analog filters in this jam, only the LD3's internal synth sound engines and effects.

Gotharman Releases Little deFormer 3 and Tiny LD Updates

Available at Gotharman's Musical Instruments, the update adds new resonator oscillators, smooth oscillators and microtuning. You can find demos here: New Oscillators, Resonators, Microtuning. Also see Gotharman's LD3: Color Of The Sky. Currently you can find all the demos and more on the first page for the Gotharman label. Posting the individual links for future reference as new Gotharman posts are sure to go up and make them more difficult to find in the archives.

Update 11.62 Details:

-New oscillator types: Smooth oscillators and Resonator oscillators.

-The 2 new oscillator types can be microtuned per key in an octave.

-More oscillator modulation destinations: Extra pitch modulation, Reso, Sample length and Portamento.

-Monophonic trigger system improved.

-Output Effects gain can now be adjusted.

Bug fixes:

-If linear envelopes were used, with different settings for each part, sometimes the settings of each part would interfere with each other, i.e. long attacks would appear on parts, that it was not supposed to. This has now been fixed.
