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

    35:45

    *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!

    Joranalogue - Select 2

    14:28

    Here's the very lovely, very powerful, deceptively simple ... Select 2 from Joranalogue. Just like with their module 'Compare 2' (demo here - ) at first I thought this was just a simple, utility which is all well and good but not always fun. I was wrong, this is really fun and it invites learning and patching and trying out new things. There's a handful of patches in this video but there's a lot of things you can do with it using it to create, manipulate, freeze, switch and process audio and CV. That equates to gated CV generation, gated muting, switching inputs, attenuversion, offsetting, ring modulation, weird sample and hold that's like a kind of 'freeze and pass'. Really nice.

    There's another video with Select 2 showing the 'freeze and pass' or 'odd sample and hold' here -

    Joranalogue - Compare 2

    22:09

    Here's the absolutely killer Compare from Joranalogue. It's a compactor, but not a normal one, a dual window comparator, a 4 output logic section, CVable window size and position, NOT / inverted output ... it's a magic voltage controlled voltage controlling toolbox! :) Check out the various patches processing audio, CV gates and making all sorts of stuff. It's really great at getting more out of other modules.

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

    3:59

    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.

    Joranalogue Filter 8 the cutting edge in analogue VCF design

    37:13

    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.



    TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS

    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.

    Rossum Electro-Music Trident *FIRST PATCH*

    4:59

    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.

    Joranalogue - Filter 8 *FIRST PATCH*

    7:43

    Here's my first patch video with the new Joranalogue Filter 8 / F8 which is a 8 output multimode filter that's also an 8-phase oscillator. We've get exponential and linear FM, great tone, 1, 2, 3, 4 pole low pass outputs and other filter modes. There's 1v/oct tracking, audio rate modulation giving us vocal and formant like tones and I'm using Select 2 to switch the audio input into the filter and also switching outputs. Mixing in other outputs through other processing also gives a nice ping pong rhythms pattern that works well when panned for a stereo image. Full video demo coming in the not too distant future! :)

    **TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** Playing around with the Furthrrrr Generator from Endorphin.es has been a total pleasure preparing for and working on this video. The range of tones that ooze out of this thing doesn't cease to amaze me. The module is a dual/complex oscillator design with a lot of wave shaping, history/heritage from the Buchla 259 and a few unique twists. The updated (you can swap them out) digital Strong Linear Core giving through zero FM really adds a tonne of musical useful FM to the oscillator too. In the video I turn the thing into a drum machine, explore shifting tones and drones, melodies, bass and a whole load more. Check the index below and skip around as you see fit. Enjoy!

    Freeze & Pass weird sample & hold from the Joranalogue Select 2

    4:12

    Here's an odd, weird, quirky (whatever you want to call it) sample and hold style affect that I'm calling 'Freeze & Pass' with the Joranalogue Select 2 (I know it's Track & Hold). I'm using the gated hold input to freeze/hold audio (at audio rates). This gives a downsampler style effect but when it's not held it lets the signal pass. Rather than just sample one thing and step to another held sample like a sample and hold. Select 2 can do a tonne of stuff, so check out the full demo above.

    Random*Source Serge DUSG 5/7: Subharmonic Generator

    3:36

    The Serge Dual Universal Slope Generator (DUSG) and some of its derivatives can be patched to create subharmonics – including suboctaves – from another oscillator’s square wave. These can track the keyboard, with the harmonic division depending on the Rise and Fall times as well as the frequency of the guide oscillator:

    00:00 initial setup
    00:41 square wave subharmonic generator
    01:28 variable waveshape subharmonics

    The other movies in this series cover the other “personalities” of the DUSG. For the full playlist of these movies, go to

It has simple controls allowing you to get to the sound and dynamic control you need quickly, external sidechain input, sidechain filter and a tonne of gain if you want to get into analog saturation and clipping too.

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

    43:12

    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.

    Patching Panda Vibrazum // Triple Resonant Multimode Filter in Eurorack

    14:54

    **TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW ** Here we have the very lovely triple filter 'Vibrazum' from Patching Panda (it's the v2). It's a single shared input into a network of mutlimode filters with independent and global control, separate and mixed outputs and CV over all the parameters. From simple characterful low pass to weird formant triple peak vocal sounds there's a tonne of range in here. Although it's not labelled as a stereo device plenty of the patch examples here are stereo, using Vibrazum to create a stereo image for FX or general synth tones. So grab some decent headphones or monitors to hear the details in the sounds. Any questions just ask, thanks for Patching Panda for sponsoring this video and cheers for watching!

    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!
