  • 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 -

  • Øchd: Overview and Demo

    6:42

    Welcome to the Patchwerks video series! In this inaugural video of our series, our resident expert Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) demos the amazingly simple and musically powerful features from the new DivKid module øchd. Remember to like and subscribe, because we'll have more videos of great gear coming your way soon.

    From DivKid:
    This collaboration between DivKid and Instruo is a 4HP all analogue triangle LFO generator with 8 outputs. Each of the 8 outputs are free running and are musically tuned intervals, as opposed to synced or variable phase outputs from each other. A range of fast to slow outputs can be set to make any patch drift organically and beautifully, letting your modulation freely drift various parameters. There's a global rate control to go up into either lower audio rates on the fastest outputs, or glacially slow. A CV input with attenuverter allows for waveshaping via feedback patching, everything from log, lin or expo curves through to odd staircases waves and more. A negative voltage can reliably halt the circuit which gives 8 track and holds over the outputs.

  • 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.

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

    8:09

    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.

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

    56:53

    **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.

  • 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.

  • Drone - Joranalogue Generate 3 meets Instruo Cs-L

    2:43

    Noisy little drone featuring Joranalogue Generate 3 modulated by Instruo Cs-L and other sources. Generate 3 is the only audible source, with no VCAs or VCFs, direct to PC. I've never heard a VCO sound like this thing does. Everything you hear is coming from Generate 3's FULL output which is a mix with ODD all the way up and varying amounts of FUNDAMENTAL and EVEN. No VC to the V/OCT changing pitch but lots of external modulation listed below. Instruo Cs-L is also static pitch with a little linear modulation of the top VCO by the bottom.

    Here's what a mini demo is in case you're curious - - this is the great Mix 3 from Joranalogue. It's 3 channels mixing and VCAs with a 4th input that passes through with no level adjustment and there's also a final level adjusting VCA which here I'm using for sidechaining.

  • E-RM presenting polygogo at SchneidersLaden

    40:47

    A few weeks ago Max from E-RM presented the prototype of their first module for eurorack - the polygogo. He explains how finding a GIF online was the initial spark to explore the unusual synthesis method the polygogo is based on. The polygonal synthesis is a kind of graphical complex amplitude shaping method. With the help of the built-in modulation sources, polygonal synthesis in polygogo opens up a wide range of sonic possibilities from clicky pinged sequences to unique dark thunderstorms, bass lines, leads and colored noise.

    This mighty stereo oscillator impressed the audience with its wide range of possible timbres. The idea of sculpting a shape on the screen of the module that then translates into sound works really well and invites the user to interact with the module.

    Your next chance to check out the polygogo is during SUPERBOOTH19 where Max will have a booth and will be showing the module during a lecture concert on Thursday. This is also how long we have to wait for the final color choice, pricing and availability.

  • WOW! Next level Eurorack granular synthesis with Arbhar from Instruo // Superbooth 2019

    11:14

    Wow, really wow! Arbhar from Instruo really blew me away with what genuinely seems like next level granular processing / granular synthesis for the Eurorack platform. Despite the overtop thumbnail and title the quality of sound, top end, detail seemed to really shine and I can't wait to try this out for myself. Arbhar is a mono in, dual/stereo output granular processor with lots of CV, controls, on board condenser microphone, auto-recording through amplitude and frequency change detection and more.

  • 2hp Div - Dual clock divider & multiplier with CV control for Eurorack

    8:12

    Support the work I do here

    Here we have the 2hp Div clock divider and multiplier for Eurorack systems. It's 2hp as you'd expect and can divide or multiply an incoming clock (I push it with some audio in the video good for chi-tune glitchy digital like tones) by 12, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 16. There's CV over the two channels allowing for a range of shifting polymetric, polyrhythmic or ratcheting/bursting rhythmic patterns. Good fun when driving sequencers as well as percussive patches

  • GODs BOX Humpback // Multimode Eurorack filter with BAGS of character!

    16:30

    **TIMING INDEX BELOW** Here we have a newly re-panelled version of the Humpback filter from GOD's BOX. This is an 8HP SEM style multimode filter with a 2 pole response across the individual low, band and high pass + notch outputs. The input level can drive the filter for that lovely harmonic 'burn' and the two CV inputs affect the cut off with attenuators. It responds well to audio rate modulation for YOI bass, glottal overtones and odd pinged hits. The resonance is severely hot rodded beyond the normal SEM inspired filters giving a wide range of soft and warm bass to all out chaotic screams. I stumbled upon a weird way to create distance concrete car park reverb trails in your kick drums too. So skip around below and if you have any clue what's happening with that odd reverb I managed to create - let me know.

  • Qu-Bit Bloom Generative Eurorack Sequencer

    5:55

    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.

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

    13:40

    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.
