Erica Synths Introduces Nightverb and ResonantEQ

"We at Erica Synths in collaboration with 112dB have developed a unique new hardware reverb effects unit. We focused on the musical aspect of the effect – extremely long decay tails are possible without losing harmonic integrity and since multiple parameters can be adjusted at once, notes can be played individually and held in chords, pitch-shifted at a whim or used to create massive, ambient textures.

Introducing the Nightverb – a stereo reverb with a unique and musical custom algorithm, save/recall functions for all parameters, all in a sleek aluminum case to aesthetically match our lineup of desktop units."

We realized it’s about time to expand the Erica Synths Graphic series of Eurorack modules with a unique sound shaping module. Introducing the Graphic Resonant Equalizer – a 10-band resonant equalizer with a fully-analogue signal path and digital control over individual band levels.

This new architecture gives an unprecedented level of control for shaping sounds with the possibility of saving presets, randomizing band levels, applying clocked modulations and even allowing for the module to act as an unconventional multimode filter.

The CV inputs for all bands and the clock input allow for integrating the Graphic Resonant Equalizer into any Eurorack system. Whether you’re looking for a delicate sound design tool for balancing out the frequencies in your patch to sound just right or an experimental scream machine that can mangle any sound source into uncharted territory, the module does it all – a versatile secret weapon for your rack!

The future of EXPRESSIVE analog synths is HERE

video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

"I've been waiting 50 years to experience analog synthesizers responding intuitively and immediately to pitch, timbre and volume changes from the slightest movements of my fingers on a keyboard! In this video, you'll see and hear unprecedented control of one of the most extreme patches I've ever made. It incudes (4) Vintage ARP 2600's synthesizers and (1) Vintage 1969 Moog IIIc modular synthesizer playing all at once in unison mode or where each modular synth is playing a separate voice in the chord. I've never heard my favorite all-time analog synths sounding so musical, so different and just so good!

To accomplish this task, we are using 5 channels of Haken Audio CVC (Control Voltage Converter) to receive MPE messages from an Expressive E Osmose and also from a Haken Audio Continuum. These state of the art MIDI controllers are able to understand the players most subtle finger movements and immediately translate those messages to the CVC. Without any perceivable latency, the CVC can then send 4 independent control voltages to alter any parameter in real-time on any one of the synths being used as a voice.

My special guest, Osmose and Continuum expert performer Josh Madoff demonstrates all the features on both of these keyboards by playing musical examples. I'll be explaining what's going on, playing some duets with Josh and also providing an in-depth breakdown of the patches on each synth. I'm optimistic that we'l be seeing controllers n the near future delivering higher and higher levels of artistic experiences for performers. Please enjoy the this presentation and let us know what you think in the comments section. Thank you for your support, it means everything to us!

The last Eurorack sequencer you might ever buy: DROID Moto Kit Demo

video upload by mylarmelodies

"Imagine you could buy an uber-hands-on 4-track performance sequencer with haptic motorised faders, but you could modify or totally redesign how it works - as your interests change? The "DROID Moto Kit" (running the included Motor Fader Performer Sequencer patch) is that thing. It's 'done', and powerful...AND it can be changed. In this video I'll introduce the DROID system, explain basic track creation 5:41, and then jam from 14:57 onwards.

Thanks for Der Mann mit Der Maschine for hiring me to demo the Moto Kit. Given that this was designed by someone who actually plays live, you might expect that my next step is to try this as my live case sequencer."

Custom Korg R3 synthesizer plays almost alone

video upload by Jake

"In this small track, I used a combination of modulations generating multiple random arpeggios. The 4 LFOs are used to vary the pitch of the sequences played by the 2 motion sequencers. Finally, timbre #1 plays an arpeggio in ALT mode. This results in a semi-random evolution of sequences as well as sounds.At 2mn 20s, I put in the video a photo of the sketch explaining in general the architecture of this patch in order to help those who wish to program this fabulous instrument a little more in depth

The KORG R3 was used extensively for the production of my new album

Each oscillator has controls for Level and Frequency, allowing easy adjustment of FM timbres, no menu diving snorkels needed.

Modulation inputs for Frequency or Level for each oscillator - patch in a couple of Envelopes, and you have an instant FM synth voice.

Bored of Sine waves ? A generous Wave Warp control bends things through Triangle to Pulse wave and back again.
Wave Warp can be applied to Carrier, Modulator or both types of oscillator.

For the more discerning mangler, Wave Folding is also available in three delicious flavours; Symmetric, Asymmetric and Soft Clip !

A Global Detune spread control with CV input is great for creating Netflix apocalypse drones that descend into the abys.

Lastly an onboard Stereo Chorus can add a vivacious 1980's shimmer to all your FM creations.

Oh, nearly forgot. It's Stereo !"

I then foolishly threw in a VCO from the Batumi II through the Sqwk Dirty filter and sequenced from the meloDICER, all of which I'm using for the first time. I'm not sure it gels all the time, but I was having a lovely time exploring."

TUTORIAL / STEP 8 and SELECT 2 for a sequence with 1 random step

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"In a previous patch walkthrough video I said that there's a way to create a sequnce with STEP 8 but use SELECT 2 (and COMPARE 2) to make one (or more) of those steps random. This is the tutorial video to watch if you want to find out how to do exactly that.

I hope you find it inspiring.

Tip: combined with the technique explained in the following video you can really create interesting harmonic changes for one or several voices in a patch, with a touch of random so you can easily afk without anyone ever knowing:"

PATCH WALKTHROUGH / STEP 8 / doing a lot of 'sequency' things with just one sequencer

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"It's something that I find myself doing often: making a short sequcence, then transposing it every x amount of steps while using the cv that's transposing the lot as a pitch source for a bassline (works great for a chord generator as well). STEP 8 is a wonderful tool for this as it gives us both a sequence and cv for transposing and a way to randomize the progression within set boundaries. That - amongst other things - is what this video is about."

Sequential Circuits Split-Eight SN 02917 w/ Custom White Side Panels

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

via this listing

"Relatively uncommon but a fantastic sounding analogue synth capable of some extremely rich sounds when compared to modern digital offerings.

This unit is completely restored and fully operational.

This unit has seen the following service:

Completely refurbished keybed
All button contacts (Keybed and front panel buttons) have been refurbished
ALL electrolytic caps replaced including those on the audio board.
New memory battery installed
New voltage regulators installed
New led matrix chips installed
Full factory sysex installation with original factory sounds restored.
Fully tested and working great!
The Split-8 makes for a very nice programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer with complete MIDI implementation. With 8 voices and 8 oscillators (Curtis 3394 SENTE chips) the Split-8 is a heavy contender against the Roland Juno-106.

The keyboard features splits and layers, all of which can be saved with patch data. Choose between 8 voice polyphony with 1 oscillator per voice, 4 voice polyphony with dual oscillators per voice, 2 voice polyphony with a mega 4 oscillators per voice, or the unison mode which is just a fat 8-voice solo mode for trance bass and lead heaven! Similar to the Juno-106, the Split-8 uses a Chorus effect to liven up the sounds.

Split-8 features:

One voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) for each of the eight voices. Switches are used to set any combination of triangular, sawtooth and square wave. Pulse width modulation (PWM) is available.
For each voice, the coarse tuning is available within four octaves as well as the fine tuning.
Programmable "poly mod" allows the audio output of one voice to feed another's VCF. In this case, the polyphony is reduced to four voices.
The voltage-controlled low-pass filter (LP VCF) has a four-stage structure with a slope of 24 dB per octave. Cutoff, resonance and modulation depth adjustments are available. A keyboard tracking mode is also provided (higher notes have a higher cutoff frequency).
The low-frequency oscillator (LFO) produces a triangular or rectangular waveform in the range from 0.25 to 20 Hz. It can be used to modulate the cutoff frequency of VCF, the pitch of the VCO and the pulse-width modulation.
ADSR envelope generators for VCF and VCA.
Keyboard "split" and "layer" functions are available.
Programmable chorus effect.
Full MIDI support, including downloading presets via the sysex protocol."

Tela – Modal Synthesizer

video upload by Fors

Tela – Walkthrough

video upload by Fors

"Tela orchestrates a vast array of resonant peaks, intertwined to form a critical mass of sound. It models nothing – it's a synthesizer for the here and now, to discover and create anew.

In a careful balance of depth and immediacy, Tela explores the inherent character and capabilities of modal synthesis. Like a practical joke, Tela bends a myriad of partials into perfect symmetrical waveforms only for them to dissolve into otherworldly timbres and textures mere seconds later. There are no rules.

Modal synthesis
Imagine hitting a thin piece of metal, a piece of glass or the membrane of a drum– the material vibrates and rings out with its inherent timbre, affected by the motion of the impact and the strength of the hit. This is the basis of what modal synthesis recreates.

Roland Juno 106

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.
video upload by ohm_studi_ohm

"First part I demo a few presets and most of the controls.
On the second part I enter test mode and let you listen to the 6 voices filter calibration.
This is a good test to check if your Juno 106 needs calibration. Most of the calibration procedure is dedicated to the filter setting, since oscillators are DCO they won't drift, but the filters can. By entering test mode and selecting bank 3 you basically recall a patch that has filter in self oscillation with keyboard tracking, thus you can easily hear if any of the 6 voices is off. Just play notes in the high and low notes and listen to the pitch (and amplitude). The 6 voices should sound the same, like on this unit. If one or more is way off it's time for calibration."

PATCH / ROUTE 4 / arps & melodies / sounddesign exploration

video upload by Joranalogue Audio Design

"The 1V normalized routing inputs on ROUTE 4 make a lot of sense when you start using ROUTE 4 to change up an existing sequence, by either precision mixing the 1V/oct pitch cv with ROUTE 4s output or by using an additional V/oct input on your vcos (luckily GENERATE 3 Exp. FM inputs are nearly perfectly calibrated to accept V/oct signals). Using ORBIT 3 as a master control for all the switching on ROUTE 4 makes for a chaotic but controlled course of pitches."

Behringer Edge Modular Patches/Patterns/Samples No Talk Demo

video upload by Anton Anru

"Behringer Edge «Modular Grooves» is a collection of 50 patches + patterns: 17 Percs/Drums, 16 Basses, 17 Synths. It is dedicated to the modular vibe, loved for its analog warm sound, experimental attitude, rich opportunities, unique features and tones, and inspirational workflow.

๐Ÿ’Ž The presets feature various colors: warm, noisy, detuned, distorted, as well as mild, clean, soft, punchy, dark, bright, deep, and airy.
Some timbres are great to play the first role in tracks or jams, while others will work perfectly as additional parts.
You may use the patches as they are, but I strongly recommend tweaking the knobs to develop the timbre during your performance and get an exciting experience.

๐Ÿ“ฅ Get the soundset:

๐Ÿ’ฝ The soundset also includes 24/41000 WAV samples, accompanied by BPM and scale information. You can use them as they are, or you're free to resample, edit, and apply effects. These samples offer a versatile material for your experimentation.

๐Ÿ“š The soundset is presented in PDF format. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn a lot about the synth and discover its true depth.

๐ŸŽง There are audio examples of all patches inside the folder with the soundset.
To recreate these patches, you need up to 3 patch cords.

Tuning is an important part of the final result, but it’s quite difficult to depict the settings of oscillators frequencies and sequencer knobs as they are quite small, and even a tiny movement may shift the pitch. I tried to be as accurate as possible to draw these settings (the way they play in the audio examples), but don’t be upset if you can’t recreate the same melody. You may spend some time to catch the same melody, or you may use the settings as a starting point for your own melodic or percussive lines.

I used an external USB clock from Ableton Live. When external clock is used, TEMPO knob has no effect, so I left its value on some default position. Only tempo division (SCALE) changes the playback. If you use EDGE as a master clock device, change TEMPO to your taste.

๐Ÿ”” The video contains demo tracks featuring these presets. I've added other samples, drums and pads, to create a complete musical context. The EDGE sequences can be quite complex, producing various timbres at once, like bass and percussion. To help you distinguish, I've marked the EDGE and ADDITIONAL SOUNDS with different colors.
These ADDITIONAL SOUNDS are not included in the soundset.

The Roland System 100 Synthesizer - Semi Generative Patch #modularsynth #synth #ambient #drone #100

video upload by S R DHAIN

"Modular & Semi Modular synths can be set to self-generate all kinds of effects, noises, and music. It can be both challenging and fun to program the synths to do this.

Here , the 104 sequencer is running at a very low clock speed and has a sequence of notes that are consistently chiming in on the 101 keyboard, which itself has the VCF & the VCA being slowly modulated by it's LFO.

The 102 expander has the sample & hold switched on to both pulse out a note trigger & slowly modulate its the VCF. My occasional interjections are to change the key of the sequence on the 101 keyboard & the 102's drone note; the 102's pitch is affected by the CV input from the 101's keyboard."

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.

Poly sequence without sequencer on KORG R3 synthesizer

video upload by Jake

"A song combining several sequences on a KORG R3 synthesizer without sequencer thanks to the Motion Sequencer

The R3 is a bi-timbral synthesizer.

Although it does not have a sequencer per se, it has the "motion sequence" function.

If motion sequencing allows you to automate a parameter over 16 steps, it can be dedicated to the pitch of the notes.

We thus have 2 sequences for the same patch, each controlling its own tone.

On timbre 1, in order to make the sequence more complex, I allocated each of the 2 filters to its own oscillator. Thus on timbre 1 the slow variations of LFO 1 control filter 1 in positive and 2 in negative.

LFO 2 is synchronized to the motion sequencer in the form of a sawtooth wave to simulate a filter envelope trigged to the note

On tone 2, LFO 1 in the form of a square wave at slow speed allows the sequence to be transposed to the seventh at 0.75 hZ.

LFO 2 has the same function as on timbre 1

Recorded in one take without any external effects"

Korg MS-50 Autoplay #1: part 5/5 | sequential patch #korgms50

Korg MS-50 Autoplay

"Fifth and last part of a sequential patch with VCO and VCF cross-modulation, combined modulation voltages, rhythmic pulses and two independent audio outputs. Different level settings in the Adding Amplifier can produce a variety of patterns from the combination of two envelope curves and a pulse, displayed on the voltmeter. The remaining free modules can be integrated to further expand the patch complexity.
This video is a fraction of an hour long experiment around this patch, I've shortened and divided it in five parts to make it more accessible. The wiring is presented at the beginning of each video.
Thanks to @IppeiTambata for his inspirational looping machines.
