The successor to the widely acclaimed Elmyra, Elmyra 2 is a 4-voice digital/analog hybrid drone synthesizer and platform for microtonal sonic exploration, capable of creating anything from lush ambient soundscapes to gritty droning textures and shrieking noises, available as a 42 HP Eurorack module or semi-modular desktop synth. With 31 modulation targets, 4 polymetric sequencers, delay, additional per-voice effects, a choice of various filters, as well as onboard LFOs and utilities, it is essentially a purpose-built small modular system in itself. A set of preset cards (included) or electronic components like capacitors or diodes can be plugged into the front panel in order to change the sound character.

Feature overview:

4 independent voices activated by touch or CV
wavetable-based complex oscillator engine, up to 12 oscillators in total, 1V/octave compatible
chromatic mode makes chords and harmonic sounds possible, microtonal scales supported
41 patch points
31 modulation targets
touchpads with analog envelopes that can be used as modulation sources
resonant filter switchable between:
boomy and aggressive multimode 2-pole state variable filter (low-pass, band-pass, high-pass)
creamy 4-pole low-pass ladder filter
delay with unhealthy amounts of feedback
lo-fi reverb
analog OUCH circuit: a unique combination of destructive distortion, waveshaping and filtering
sonic character can be customised by using special preset cards (set of 4 included) or components like diodes that can be plugged into the front panel
preset cards can be used with other Neutral Labs modules
external audio can be processed via audio input
9 per-voice modulations and effects:
unison detune
dual sub-oscillators
saturation
bitmangler
sample rate reduction
noise
high-pass filter
low-pass filter
2 LFOs: 1 sine, 1 complex morphable
4 sequencers with arbitrary step length per voice (up to 128), allows polymetric structures
delay time and LFOs can be clock-synced or unsynced (tap tempo is also possible)
utilities
dual attenuator/buffered multiple/voltage generator
CV summing circuit
case made of plant-based bioplastic and native German oak wood
boutique synth handmade in Germany

Neutral Labs Scrat customizable Steiner-Parker VCF Eurorack module demo


video upload by nyppy

"Available in July 2022 as DIY kit or prebuilt module. See https://neutral-labs.com/scrat

00:00 Intro
00:38 Resonance modes
01:02 Customization (LED)
01:42 Customization (LDR)
01:58 LDR madness
02:33 Preset cards"



Scrat is an aggressive sounding multimode Steiner-Parker filter with a twist: You can change the resonance flavour by plugging in components like diodes, capacitors or resistors (even LEDs and/or light-dependent resistors) directly to the front panel. A set of preset cartridges is also available, which gives you instant access to a variety of filter sounds. You could even make your own. Or go all in and connect some jumper wires to a breadboard for pretty much endless possibilities.

The 2-pole filter (12 dB/octave) supports both high-pass and low-pass mode. Even without external components or cartridges, the resonance behaviour can be changed in various ways via switches on the front panel. Both resonance and cutoff can be fully CV controlled, and the cutoff CV sensitivity can be adjusted as well.

The module contains an adjustable pre-filter drive circuit, which pairs very well with the Steiner-Parker design.

Scrat is available from July 2022 as a full DIY kit from retailers. It's a relatively easy build to complete, with a low component count and no SMD or other tricky parts. A set of 4 preset cards called Nuts (Acorn, Almond, Cashew and Pecan) is also available.

Neutral Labs Meg unique waveshaper Eurorack module demo


video upload by nyppy

"Available in March 2022 as DIY kit or prebuilt module. See https://neutral-labs.com/meg"



"Meg is a unique kind of waveshaper. Instead of folding the wave back in on itself like a common wavefolder, it shifts parts of the wave up or down, with the shifting threshold being adjustable. The resulting 2 half-waves can be flattened one by one, essentially morphing into a half square wave and eventually a full square wave. Essentially, it will add pulse-width modulation (and more) to any kind of wave."

Nermal Eurorack modulated destructive distortion module by Neutral Labs

Prototpy demo posted here



via Neutral Labs

Nermal is a destructive distortion Eurorack module that has some unique sonic qualities. There are 3 levels of distortion ranging from subtle saturation to utter destruction. An integrated modulator can switch or even blend between these modes, with the modulation frequency going well into the audio range, in which case, interesting harmonics and artefacts can be created on top of the incoming audio. Nermal rewards experimentation and unexpected sweetspots can often be discovered along the way. In addition to the onboard modulator, there are external modulation options via control voltages (CV) for the most commonly used parameters. LFOs and envelopes work great, but audio signals are accepted as well and make for the most interesting patches.

Nermal is available from May 2021 as a full DIY kit from retailers. It's fairly easy to complete, with a moderate component count and no SMD or other tricky parts.

Neutral Labs Elmyra DIY drone synthesizer & friends - a collection of short sound snippets


nyppy

"You can easily build this synth yourself (or buy it), see here: https://neutral-labs.com/elmyra/

This is a demonstration of the wide sonic palette possible with Elmyra. I'm using two of them in combination with various other synthesizers and effects units, such as Soma Lyra-8, Make Noise 0-coast, Tasty Chips GR-1, Moog DFAM and Mother-32, Elektron Digitakt and Analog Four, Mooer Ocean Machine, Jomox M-Resonator and a bunch of Eurorack modules.

If you're interested in a panel + PCB set, kit or build, let me know."

This is obviously inspired by the Soma Lyra-8, which I love, but it's not a clone at all.

Introducing Elmyra - a DIY drone synthesizer by Neutral Labs


Published on Mar 21, 2020 nyppy

"This is just a quick demo of my Elmyra prototype. You can easily build this synth yourself. I will share the schematics, PCB and code in a few days. A video detailing all the features is also coming up. Just watch this space or drop me a message.

This is obviously inspired by the Soma Lyra-8, which I love, but it's not a clone at all.

Reverb provided by Eventide Space. Next video will have the dry sound as well. The Elmyra delay can get pretty reverb-y on its own.

Soma Lyra-8 // Jomox M-Resonator drone


Published on Nov 10, 2019 nyppy

"Those 2 are a perfect pair. I didn't use any video effects by the way. The camera started shaking and produced these nice shutter effects by itself. ;)

Lyra goes through the M-Resonator. Octatrack adds some delay and Eventide Space is used for reverb (Quasar preset).

Moog Sub 37 vs. Analogue Solutions Nyborg-24 Comparison


Published on Nov 2, 2019 nyppy

"I've heard people refer to the Nyborg as 'the better Moog', and using both of them almost daily, I thought I'd put up a short video comparing the two. This is not meant to be a full review of either. It's mainly about the sound, specifically oscillators and filters. Both user interfaces and modulation capabilities are vastly different, and you can find reviews and tech specs elsewhere.

In my opinion, there is no clear winner in terms of sound (otherwise I wouldn't still own both). The Moog's oscillators sound warmer, but it can get more aggressive with the filter and overdrive. The Nyborg has a very pleasant sound for arpeggios and is easier to fit in a mix. Without any resonance, both filters sound very close to each other.

Do you have a favourite? Or got anything to ask? Let me know in the comments.
