  • ALM Busy Circuits Squid Salmple // Fast & powerful 8 channel audio and CV sampler in Eurorack

    38:05

    **TIMING INDEX // SECTIONS BELOW** So here's the Squid Salmple from ALM Busy Circuits. It's an 8 channel Eurorack sampler that can record, mangle, modulate and playback audio or CV. It's fast and immediate with quick on the fly recording options and an easy interface that very quickly became a fast and intuitive way to work with both audio and CV. There's a phenomenal bank of samples that comes with it on the USB stick that's really well put together from a range of artists and sources. You've got 5 outputs, 3 assignable (to multiple destinations) CV inputs, 8 trigger inputs and plenty of control and options. I'd love to hear what you think about the module and the video so leave a comment and let's chat. Skip around with the timing index below if you see fit and cheers for watching!

  • ALM Busy Circuits - Akemies Castle

    19:35

    Fan of FM? Then look no further than this sooooped up mega module of FM goodness. Akemie's Castle from ALM Busy Circuits brings original NOS chip Yamaha FM to modular and breaks out all the control. Unleashing the power of multi-operator digital FM without hiding it behind modules. But enough of the press release style blurb ... this thing is KILLER! An absolute machine for filthy bass, noisy percussive, softly moving chord tones and more. It's a big modules, but all those controls are great fun with manual wiggling or powerful under voltage control. Dual oscillator, 4 FM operators, chords, feedback, loads of CV input what's not to like?

  • Akemies Taiko ALM Busy Circuits // Baseck

    5:20

    Taking this New Akemies Taiko for a spin! I'm a big fan of Akemies Castle and Dinky's Taiko so I've been really looking forward to the release of this one :) I was just going to post a short clip of this, but loved bumping it with the sub, so I decided to put the whole 5min piece up. Maybe I'll rock another vid to show off other features like using it as a synth voice.

    All the sound you hear is coming from Akemies Taiko, dry without any effects. It is being sequenced with MFB SEQ-01, Make Noise Pressure Points, and some random from Qubit Nano Rand, and Make Noise's Wogglebug.

    Demo/Features Video is at:

  • Quick Tip: Snare Drum Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Patch Tutorial

    1:40

    Here is a quick tip showing one way to make a snare drum on a eurorack modular synthesizer.

    You will need:
    - a trigger source (clock or sequencer)
    - two envelope generators (snappy exponential ones)
    - a VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) with a sine wave output
    - a noise generator
    - two VCAs (voltage controlled amplifier)
    - a mixer

    The patch:
    - trigger source to trigger input of both envelope generators
    - envelope generator 1 output with short decay to VCO 1v/oct input
    - envelope generator 2 output with longer decay to VCA CV control for both VCAs
    - VCO and noise output to inputs of VCAs
    - VCA outputs to mixer inputs
    - mixer output is your snare drum

    A snare drum is made of two sounds, a tonal part and a noise part. Here we made the tonal part by using a sine wave oscillator with a short decay envelope modulating the oscillator’s frequency. The noise part is made with a white noise generator. These two signals can then be mixed together and run through a VCA with a longer decay envelope.

    To change the sound you could change the tuning of the sine wave or filter the noise. You could also adjust the envelope modulating the pitch of the sine wave and how much it affects the pitch. Adding distortion, saturation or compression to a snare can also improve the sound.

  • ALM Akemie’s Castle Dual FM Oscillator

    2:30

    The ALM Busy Circuits Akemie’s Castle is a dual VCO that utilizes Yamaha IC’s to achieve 4 Operator digital FM. Each of the module’s operators features independent waveform sections, a frequency multiplier, and both manual and remote level controls. Each of the operators can be combined in various ways across the oscillator sections, which can be further combined with independent feedback control settings on each VCO. All of this combined produces an incredibly wide range of available sounds.

    Sorry for the terrible terminology being used CONSTANTLY but here's a demo of the functions of the cheap and cheerful ALM Busy Circuits MCO VCO as requested by user on Reddit's r/modular board. Sorry for my big meaty mitt being in the way as well. Hopefully you get a good idea of how it sounds and how it can be integrated into a modular system. It's a lovely little unit that i use for my lead lines and pairs wonderfully with all sorts of modulation.

    3:24

    We visit Mumdance's studio for an exclusive look at his exciting new module.

    Mumdance’s musical influences are many, but top of the list are two things: modular synths and hardcore. He's managed to combine his love of both with his latest release, a Eurorack filter module designed with UK boutique studio ALM Busy Circuits, the MUM M8.

    The inspiration for the MUM M8 is Akai’s S950 sampler from 1988, whose unique filter sound is behind many classic jungle and hardcore records of the era. We visited Mumdance at his home studio to get an exclusive inside look at how the module – right down to the rave baggie the screws come in.

    For more on the making of the MUM M8 read our interview with Mumdance and ALM's Matthew Allum. If you want to know where to start with building your own modular synth, check out our Eurorack beginner's guide.

  • Eurorack Sync & Reset Issues

    9:22

    Different clocked modules interpret their reset input in two different ways. Of course, my main two pattern generators (Grids and Euclidean Circles, both being driven by Pamela's New Workout) each used a different method, so I had to find a way to resolve them. Here's what did and didn't work, and why.

    This video was originally created for the Learning Modular Patreon supporters, and came with a long post providing more detail:

  • Quick Tip: Rhythmic Pattern With A Eurorack Sequential Switch Tutorial

    1:16

    This quick tip explains how to make a rhythmic pattern with a eurorack modular sequential switch.

    Modules you will need:
    - a sequential switch
    - a clock (for clocked sequential switches) or an LFO or sequencer (for voltage controlled sequential switches)
    - multiple sound sources

    The patch:
    - sound sources to inputs of sequential switch
    - either sequencer to voltage control input of sequential switch
    - or clock to clock input of sequential switch
    - sequential switch output is your rhythmic pattern.

    You can vary your pattern by modulating or manually tweaking the input sounds, or changing the order they are plugged into the switch in. You can leave inputs of the switch with nothing plugged in if you want spaces in your pattern. If you are using a voltage controlled switch like in the video change your sequencer pattern to change your rhythm pattern.

    You could even experiment with making melodies this way by patching multiple pitched sound sources into the switch.

    As usual, recorded in one shot. No fancy video edit this time as it's just a simple patch.

    Kick, snare, and hi-hats are samples coming from the Orthogonal Devices ER-301 Sound Computer. Hats are modulated by a sample and hold coming from the ER-301.

    Pads are from the 4MS Spectral Multiband Resonator sequenced by mutable instruments Peaks in secret mode. A saw wave from the ER-301 is modulating the freq inputs to dirty up the sound a bit. It's then processed by an internal VCA in the ER-301 and then the Doepfer spring reverb.

    The rest is ALM Akemie's Taiko modulated by Make Noise Rene and a sample and hold from the ER-301.

    All is clocked by TipTop Audio Trigger Riot

There's the 8 channel sampler that's quick and simple to use with a Pamela's NEW Workout style menu system. A function generator that can be envelopes, LFOs or a sequencer. Headphone output, small, simple and useful. And finally a new 6HP wavetable oscillator with sub out, PWM style FX over the wavetables and a great sound in a small space.

  • Natoma // Eurorack Guitar Loop Processing

    7:58

    Processing a guitar loop with the modular.

    An excercise to see if I could build up a track using several instances of a single guitar loop. I recorded the loop the night before recording this video via the Intellijel Audio Interface into a pedal looper on the Orthogonal Devices ER-301.

    All of the audio sources in this track are several instances of the guitar loop. One is pitched up, one is pitched down, several are running through granular processors.

    The real heavy lifting in this patch is done by the trio of Clouds, Magneto and DLD.

    Patch Notes/Signal Flow:

  • Equalizer in a Eurorack - Music Thing Modular Graphic EQ and ALM PE-1

    6:29

    In this Video we will have a closer look at a graphic and a parametric Equalizer, and what benefits they can bring in an Eurorack system.
    The Music Thing Modular Graphic EQ is, as the names says, a graphical Equalizer with fixed frequencies. The ALM PE-1* is a parametric Equalizer and hence a bit more versatile.
    In the Video we listen to both Equalizers, and find out where you can use them in your Eurorack system.

    * I messed things up a little, talking about Pip Slope, whereas Pip Slope is another module from ALM. The correct name for the parametric Equalizer is PE-1.

    A thumbs up for the Video and of course a subscription to the SundayAfternoonModular channel are very much appreciated!

  • ALM MCO & Quaid Megaslope Modules

    2:11

    ALM's MCO is a digital wavetable VCO with 10 waveforms inspired by 90s hybrid synths which hard harsh aliasing oscillators. We rand the MCO through the MUM M8 filter. The Quaid Megaslope is a powerful function generator based on the function generators from the Casio CZ series of keyboards. It can be an envelope, LFO or sequencer with control over timing, shape and level for each stage. Dinky's and Akemie's Taiko create the drums and the Malekko Varigate 8+ is sequencing everything.

  • 54HP Episode 4: Lo-Fi Groovebox

    3:33

    On this episode of 54HP we built a lo-fi sample based groovebox case with the new Assimil8or as the sound generating core. This 8 track sampler and sample player can play back sounds as well as DC coupled CV sequences and modulation. The Assimil8or is capable of high quality sample playback as well, but features bit reduction and lo-fi aliasing options. Clock dividers and mathematical sequencers were used to trigger the samples and the Mum M8 filter adds some more lo-fi sampler character at the end of the chain.

    Let us know in the comments what type 54hp of case you want to see next.

  • Quick Tip: Cowbell Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Patch Tutorial

    1:11

    This quick tip shows how to make a cowbell sound inspired by the famous TR-808 cowbell.

    You will need:
    - a trigger source (clock or sequencer)
    - one envelope generatorr (with exponential decay)
    - two VCOs (voltage controlled oscillators) with square wave outputs
    - a mixer with at least two channels
    - one VCA (voltage controlled amplifier)
    - a bandpass filter

    The patch:
    - square wave outputs of two detuned oscillators to mixer inputs
    - mixer output to VCA audio input
    - trigger source to trigger input of the envelope generator
    - envelope generator output to VCA CV control
    - VCA output to bandpass filter
    - bandpass output is your cowbell

    The TR-808 cowbell is one of the most distinctive of analog drum sounds, and it is a fairly simple sound to recreate with a modular synthesizer. Two square wave VCOs are mixed together and then run through a VCA. The VCA is opened with an exponential decay envelope and then run through a band pass filter.

    To get a sound similar to the 808 you can tune your oscillators to 587 and 845 Hertz. The fun thing about building this sound in eurorsack is that you can try different tunings, or even modulate or sequence the tuning of the oscillators.

  • ALM - Akemies Castle *Generative Noise*

    4:01

    Here's the awesome Akemie's Castle from ALM Busy Circuits. It's a 4 operator FM oscillator power house! Based on the original NOS Yamaha FM chips you've got different operator algorithms all four operator controls exposed and loads of hands (or CV heavy) manipulation. This patch is just a generative noise jam but you get a good idea of the range of tones it can create in that field.
