  • Joranalogue Contour 1 - Slew Limiter & Function Generator // The BACKBONE of a Modular Synth


    *TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW* Here we have a real powerhouse and backbone of a modular system. The Joranalogue Contour 1 is a Slew Limiter & Function Generator which can be an envelope generator, LFO, oscillator, audio processor, filter, PWM generator, subharmonic divider, gate delay, slew/lag/glide and plenty more. This video is aimed to be an in-depth educational look at functions and features that really play into the core of a modular system. Skip around the video with the timing index below and try applying these examples to your own modules too. I hope this serves as an education reference for those features as well as clearly demonstrates the Contour 1 Eurorack module. Leave a comment and if you get something from these videos consider supporting on

    THUMBNAIL We all need this - we absolutely do all need these functions in a system, function generators and slew limiters are really the backbone of a modular system. Think Serge DUSG and all the variants that have followed, these modules can do SO much it's nuts!

    00:00 My fugly mug

    00:15 Video previews

    01:41 Contour 1 features - what is a slew limiter / function generator? What can it do etc.


    03:11 Envelope Generator - gated and triggered behaviour, plus merging triggers, gates and LFOs to create dynamic modulation.


    06:41 Slew Limiting + freezing voltages with the hold input - slew, lag, glide + more


    08:26 LFOs - LFO shapes and curves, gated on/off + triggering resets

    11:09 Complex shapes with modulated LFOs - using modulation to create fluctuating random style complex CV shapes.


    11:54 Envelope following and deriving gates from audio - using a drum beat to create a dynamic CV shape and using audio as an input to derive in time gate signals from the rise/fall outputs.


    14:14 Low pass filter - using the module as a filter to smooth out audio and using the bend to reshape curves in the audio

    15:53 Low pass filter - BONUS 1 - using the rise and fall outs for stereo PWM FX, creating buzzy bright textures to mix with the filtered audio

    16:42 Low pass filter - BONUS 2 - using another oscillator for audio rate hold or gating on top of the filtering for sync like overtones


    17:30 Oscillator behaviour - quick arpeggio exploration with Contour 1 as an oscillator

    17:59 Pitch dependent vibrato - adding vibrato and harmonic shifts to Contour 1 as an oscillator

    19:28 How to improved saw wave oscillator behaviour


    20:18 Gate delays - create delayed gates for custom grooves and flams


    21:58 Dynamic envelopes - merging envelope generation and slew processing for more dynamic voltages.


    24:36 Creating kick drums right out of Contour 1

    25:52 Definitely NOT a snare drum

    26:48 Weird custom percussion sounds


    27:35 Creating downsampler like alias FX - audio rate hold modulation.

    28:49 Stereo PWM BEAST!!! - plus bonus audio rate overtones.

    30:35 Subharmonic generator/divider - classic Serge style patching to create subharmonic undertones.

    33:32 Combined AM/FM - a great patch from manual showing how using Contour 1 as an oscillator then adding an oscillator to the input creates a mixed amplitude and frequency modulated behaviour … it’s very musical.

  • Joranalogue Generate 3 // Through Zero Modulate EVERYTHING! // Eurorack multiphonic signal generator


    **TIMING BELOW - SKIP AROUND!** Here’s the new Generate 3 mega analogue oscillator from Joranalogue. As with other Joranalogue designs this of course pushes way past the basics and seeks (and achieves) to take analogue synthesis that bit further. Generate 3 is billed as a “through zero multiphonic signal generator” and offers through zero control of FM, PM and AM aka frequency modulation, phase modulation and amplitude modulation. You also get through zero control of the timbre as the full output mixes down the fundamental sine, even and odd harmonics. FM can be exponential, linear and through zero. The phase modulation gives a powerful way to create FM synthesis like sounds without actually changing the pitch. Through zero AM is Ring Modulation as the bipolar level controls can swing the waveform negative/inverted under voltage control. There’s two form of sync with reset and flip offering hard and soft sync as well as multiple outputs and a huge range of potential sounds and shaping in just 12HP. With all the through zero control you can be very dynamic and expressive with your modulation and as with most patches mixing modulation forms to sync modulation sources and then modulate multiple parameters leads to the widest range of options.

  • Next level analogue oscillator design from Joranalogues Generate 3 // Superbooth 2019


    As you'd expect from Joranalogue ... check the Filter 8 out here - - they really break out what the essence of a filter is and can do ... Generate 3 takes the core of what an oscillator is and breaks it out into way more. It looks at what the fundamental is, the core of the circuit, multiple FM options include thru zero, phase modulation, separate odd and even harmonics, ring modulation over fundamental and harmonic levels ... it does a lot, sounded great and I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on one later this year.

  • Joranalogue Filter 8 the cutting edge in analogue VCF design


    TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW - Here's the new Filter 8 from Joranalogue. It's a VCA based filter topology similar to but not exactly an OTA design. It features a unique resonance circuit and (according to Joranalogue) is the cutting edge in analogue VCF design. Now I can't talk specifics about the circuit but feature wise it certainly packs in a massive punch. 8 filter outputs including 1, 2, 3 and 4 pole low pass filters, a 1 pole high pass, unique band boost and notch, phase shifted output and 4 pole band pass. There's gain compensation to even out each output under self oscillation, we can freeze and hold the core of the module to effectively silence and halt the output or freeze (like a sample/track and hold) when it's producing it's own CV signals. The outputs turn to 8 phase shifted sine waves that tracks great as a multi phase oscillator or LFO and patching feedback means we can create a range of saw like waves with various exp. lin. and log. curves. We can drive the filter with the second input, or again with feedback, exponential and linear FM means we can get gorgeous rich formant throaty vocal tones under audio rate modulation or musical harmonious FM tones when using it as an oscillator. There's even more so I'll let the video do the talking. Enjoy and leave a comment to chat below.


    00:00 hello, introduction and patch previews of what's to come

    01:17 Feature walkthrough, going through bits of the manual, all the ins outs and controls.

    03:26 Filter sweeps, 1, 2, 3 and 4 pole low pass, high pass, band boost and notch, phase shifted out and the band pass. Various resonances and output comparisons.

    06:35 Using dual inputs to drive the filter

    7:11 Dual inputs driving the filters. Sweeping through the responses.

    08:40 Animating the filter. Using envelopes, sequences and gate patterns to modulate 1v/oct, exponential FM and resonance depth.

    10:42 Filter rich layered and animated detuned sounds. This also looks at building up dynamic patterns and filter modulation.

    13:41 Audio rate modulation of cut off and audio rate modulation of 'hold' for a sample and hold like freeze. Similar to sync and downsampling FX.

    16:28 Driving the filter with feedback. Creating clipping, saturation and non linear responses. At point digital-like phase modulation / phase distortion overtones appear.

    20:09 Phase shifter! Using the phase shifted output like a phase shifter effect. There's also audio rate resonance depth modulation in this patch.

    21:56 A short acid break. Patching up some 3 pole 18dB per octave low pass patches for a little bit of an acidic filter pattern.

    22:48 Filter Pings. Using the ping input to excite the filter core. Create melodic lines, deep bass, percussion and linear FM tones.

    25:42 8 phase oscillator. Using the oscillating filter as a sine oscillator. Glassy and harmonious FM tones under modulation.

    27:20 Patching feedback over the oscillating sine to create new wave shapes. You can make a near perfect saw wave as well as other exponential and logarithmic ramp shapes as well as some odd comb like shapes.

    28:19 8 phase voltage controlled LFO. Using multiple phases to create cascading modulation across a wider patch. As above with audio we look at feedback to make new LFO shapes too.

    30:22 Slew limiting. As the filter works at sub audio rates we can use it slew a signal. Here we add glide by slewing a pitch sequence. We also add resonance for a way to inject wobble and vibrato into the pattern.

    32:39 FM oscillator tones - a little musical break. We look at gated the hold on and off while this operates as an oscillator. This creates little clicky rhythms and breaks in the sequences we're using.

    33:52 Resonating envelopes - using envelopes to excite the near oscillating core of the filter to create wobbles within the envelopes shape. We can also superimpose audio rate tones or LFOs into the envelopes too.

  • Eurorack Interfaces // Receive 2 & Transmit 2 from Joranalogue Audio Design


    Shout outs to the birds outside my house! (you'll see what I mean) ... I wanted to make this video to highlight something that's really simple but I think an important part of a modular system.

    In the video I go through the Receive 2 (RX2) and Transmit 2 (TX2) from Joranalogue Audio Design. They are a dual balanced XLR/Jack input pre amp and a stereo balanced output and headphone amp. Having quality interfacing and gain staging throughout the studio/stage is important for ensuring things work properly. Yes plugging a pedal or keyboard right into a Eurorack system will probably work but you'll be closer to the noise floor and further away from the expected levels and behaviours of modules. That can lead to a varied and unsatisfactory experience a lot of the time. I also wanted to dangle a microphone outside of my house and process some real world sounds to create a foley texture and alien landscape excited and led by the suburban environment.

    More info -

    Shout out to Dove Audio, Mordax Systems, Addac System, & VoicAs for the modular drone in the first patch. KORG for the Volca Sample (crunchy beats ahoy!) and Møffenzeef Mødular for the harmony drone. Second patch is the Qu-Bit Electronix Prism (with plenty of external modulation) and the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP.

  • Qu-Bit Bloom Generative Eurorack Sequencer


    The Qu-Bit Bloom is a generative sequencer for eurorack that has two channels. It can generate patterns that mutate over time or repeat without change. The root note of the sequence can be transposed manually or with a CV input and it also ratchets. If you want to create sequences without programming them in, or want sequences that can be modulated and forever changing the Bloom is a good option.

    In this video we used in Intellijel Planar and Make Noise Wogglebug as modulation sources. The sounds are generated with the XAOC Belgrad and Joranalogue Filter 8 with a Contour 1 as an envelope. The Erica Synths Black Hole DSP 2 was used for effects.

  • Patching Panda Punch // Dynamic VCAs, accents, envelopes + more for Eurorack


    **TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** So here's the v2 Punch module from Patching Panda. It's two channels of envelopes and VCAs that add punch, dynamics and accents to your audio inputs or the envelopes you can patch out of it. You can input audio then process that through the onboard VCA using the decay envelope with CV over decay time, control over decay shape and a controllable addition of dynamics through the use of an accent input and level control. You can output the envelopes (two stage/two levels with the decay following the accent pattern too), invert them (or not) and patch those elsewhere for side chain and ducking effects. It's been a pleasure to play with and a great punchy addition to my patches giving my dynamics and more musical patterns.

  • Announcement NEW DIVKID EURORACK MODULE // Meet ochd made with Instruo


    Hello hello, here's my second eurorack module øchd or ochd. It's pronounced oct as in octave or octuplet and as if by magic there's eight outputs on this module, an octuplet of analogue LFOs if you will. I often find I need more modulation, simple sources that will keep things moving and stop things getting repetitive. That’s why ochd was brought to life, to keep patches organically drifting and moving… and as it’s modular, we wanted an intuitive easy to use module with plenty of patchable tricks up it’s sleeves too!

    ochd is a 4HP Eurorack module with eight analogue triangle LFOs. The outputs go from fast on the top output to slow on the bottom output. The default ranges are deliberate NOT synced. These are free running LFOs that were tuned by ear to be musical useful for a range of fast to slow modulations in a patch. Organic animation, drifting and musical phasing is the intention of the module. The rate control controls the rate of all LFOs globally and takes this into lower audio rates right down to 25 minute cycles on the lowest output. This can be extended even slower with CV, with the CV input and attenuverter on board and we can also track and hold the outputs with a negative CV, interrupting and holding modulation values with external gates of CVs. Another trick to take this from simple triangle shapes is to patch a spare output into the CV input and wave shape with feedback. Exponential curves, odd squares, stepped waveforms and more are available with some adjustment of the attenuverter and using different outputs to voltage control itself.

    While patching a prototype at DivKid HQ Richard Devine said this was the most organic little modulator ever - lovely stuff!

    This module is made in collaboration with Instruo and I'm very proud to be part of their amazing line up of modules.

  • DivKid / SSF Rnd Step Eurorack Module Jam and Patch Walkthrough


    DivKid teamed up with SSF to make the RND STEP module. We used the RND STEP to modulate parameters on both of the voice modules in this patch. The RND STEP is basically six noise generators going into six sample and holds with some clever normalization so you can generate six random modulations with one trigger.

    In this patch we used the SSF Entity Percussion module to generate all of the drum sounds and the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter as a voice sequenced by the Make Noise 0-CTRL. The XAOC Batumi and ALM Pam's New Workout clock everything. We used the Future Sound Systems Gristleizer Filter to add some screeching resonance that can be switched in and out with the Afrorack and Ali Modular OR Switch. Everything is mixed together with the Cockpit.

  • Bananas, Synths & Studio FX - An interview with Tom Bugs of BugBrand


    What a pleasure to meet and chat to Tom Bugs of BugBrand and even more of a pleasure is having the opportunity to film such encounters and share this video with everyone. This felt like a rare opportunity to meet Tom and chat all things BugBrand as there's not much in the way of content out there and getting hold of BugBrand gear traditionally has been difficult with small runs selling out fast. I'm avid lover of my PTDelay (see video below) and I'm very intrigued by the other red box studio tools and the blue panelled synth systems and modules.

  • Rossum Electro-Music Trident *FIRST PATCH*


    This was a real highlight of the NAMM 2019 footage (I wasn't there personally) and just the thought of a triple oscillator from Dave Rossum (previously of E-Mu, now Rossum Electro-Music) is enough to be excited about. Trident brings in zing modulation which is ring modulation with in sync (that's the key for musical / harmonious tones and less so clangorous ones) oscillators, symmetry and phase modulation options and plenty of control and CV inputs to really animate things. So this was the first patch I made when it when into the case and I just wanted to share that right away to show off some of the raw tones and some patches ideas with dual layer LPG control and a little pepper of FX in the background. Full demo coming around the release.

  • Breadboarding a Eurorack Envelope Follower circuit


    Today we are going to breadboard an envelope follower circuit.

    For those of you who don’t know what that does, it takes a AC signal and creates a positive signal that follows along with it, smoothing out all the individual peaks and valleys

  • A generative patch from scratch with Instruo Cs_L. Eurorack for beginners


    Building a basic generative patch. Instruo's Cs-L is the only soundsource in this patch. But i made the same patch with other VCO's such as STO, Dixie and Tides 2 ( in Audio Rate Operation). I use Zadar for envelope and the Praga as a VCA. Shifty i used to split the gates and CV's coming for Chance and Ornament and Crime. By turning the smooth knob on Chance i'm able to spread to notes over more octaves. O&C is used as Quantizer/sample and Hold

  • 2hp LFO // teeny tiny action packed modulation!


    It's Tuesday I have some more 2hp modules to cover so it's #2hpTuesdays again! This time I'm checking out the lovely little LFO module. Small (2hp wide of course) but still with plenty of features we have 8 waveforms that blend/fade/morph between each other across two different outputs rate control with CV input, CV input to morph through the waves and a reset to re-sync the phase of the waveform. High and low ranges take it from around 30 seconds up into low audio rates.

  • #JAMUARY2020 - DAY 12 - DivKid / Instruo Ochd


    While playing with three Plaits oscillators, I got the idea of modulating as many inputs as possible, so #DivKid's #Ochd was very handy. It gives you eight outputs of unrelated LFO's that can be influenced with CV - or completely stopped. Pitch comes from WMD Arpitecht (off screen). Additional modulation comes from Tides and Scion. FX by Clouds and Mimeophon.

  • A trio of wavefolding Instruo VCOs || 2x Ts-L and 1x Tona + Harmonaig for good measure!


    Here's a lovely trio of wave folding oscillators from Instruo. I have 2 of the new Ts-L 6HP feature packed oscillators and the softer (in terms of it's wave folder sound) Tona. These are great analogue oscillator designs which I'll be covering in their own more in depth videos coming soon. I'm also using the Harmonaig to keep things musical, in key and generating harmonies based on a single sequence coming in.

  • A mind phased post probe abduction with Hexinverter // Superbooth 2019


    Stacy ... now DJ Heisenberg ... takes us through probing, abduction, witness protection and more ... we were also rather lovingly offered a pickle although after realising the pickles had ran out we were offered a sip of pickle juice from a rather large jar ...

    The new Mind Phaser (coming this summer) is an all analogue dual VCO building upon the classic Buchla 259 design. This adds different wave shaping, with clipping, feedback, AM synthesis, wave folding and analogue phase modulation too.

  • Divkids RND STEP overview and demo at Patchwerks!


    RND STEP is a high performance, 3 channel sample and hold module, comprising of 6 unique sample and hold circuits in just 4HP.

    Each channel features two internal analogue pink noise generators, and two sample and hold circuits split across unipolar and bipolar outputs.The unipolar output always samples its own noise source for a stepped random voltage between 0-5V. The bipolar output by default samples it’s own noise source (for -5V to +5V stepped random). However, you can override that connection with the sample input. This allows for sampling external audio or CV signals, and it can sample voltages anywhere between -10V and +10V with the sample input.

    RND STEP will operate at slow trigger rates with highly extended hold times, ensuring it holds the voltage with minimal droop, but it will also operate up through audio rates for destructive downsampling FX for audio. When triggered at audio rates RND STEP outputs downsampled and clocked noise tones from the internal pink noise generators. These can then be used for modulation, percussion or sound FX.

    Trigger input 1 will normalize across all 3 channels, meaning a single trigger can give 6 unique random voltages, of which 3 are bipolar and 3 are unipolar. The combination of both ensures you have the right voltages in the correct ranges for the sources you wish to modulate.
