CatSynth video: Make Noise MMG Jam with Kitten

From grillobeats on YouTube via matrixsynth.

“Now that I have a kitten, it’s become basically impossible to jam on my modular synthesizer. featuring mfb triple osc, peg, doepfer 132, make noise rene and my new mn MMG”

Lots of familiar modules in this one. The kitten seems particularly interested in the Make Noise Rene. I actually haven’t tried out the MMG yet but now I’m curious.

CatSynth video: Acid Jam – VCF303 – Eurorack – Dark Energy

From DJjondent on YouTube, via matrixsynth.

“Dark Energy 303 acid Jam

I’m using a basic single voice Doepfer A111-5 for this patch.
Its a modular version of the Dark Energy.

The basic patch can be broken up as follows:

Audio section:
VCO sq wave (out) — (in) VCF303 (out)—- (in)VCA – Doepfer A132 (out)— (in) mixer.

Clock:
LFO sq wave — (in) RCD (out) —- Multiple (x4) —– Brains —– Rene (xClock) —– Envelope Generator(ADSR gate of A111-5/dark energy) —– Env Trig (of VCF303)
Voltage control:
ADSR (out) —- CV1 in of VCA
Top row of Pressure Points —– Xmod Rene (controls Slide)
2nd row of Pressure points —– ACcent in on VCF303 (Controls ACcent)
3rd row of PP —– VCF 303 CV (sequenced filter cutoff)

Remember to set Rene to Snake mode & activate slide.”

CatSynth video: Synth Studio Tour with Zac the Black Cat

Submitted by James Bragg via our Facebook page.

Quick view around the Fernforest Project Studio. My black cat likes sitting on things that are black and stylish. He thinks he fits in well and looks cool.
Synths in order – Doepfer Modular A-100, Moog Etherwave Theremin, Moog Voyager Old School, Schlagswerg analogue drum machine, CP-251 moog control processor, Dave Smith Mopho and Tetra, Mackie Onyx firewire mixer, PC, M-Audio Oxygen 25, NI Maschine and a Monome my brother built.
The music is called “Dark Glow” by me. you can find the whole track on soundcloud.

CatSynth pic: Appliancide (mostly) DIY modular

From Appliancide, where you can read more about the project.

I ordered some knobs and switch covers for the Doepfer modules, so they will blend in with my DIY stuff better. I am working on a second case and the modules to fill it. I will try to do a start-to-finish pictorial on one the modules this coming year. We’ll see. I like to build slow and rock out to music. Taking pictures cramps my style.

Also on matrixsynth:

“Clockwise starting from the upper left:

Doepfer a-111 VCO, Dual CGS/Serge DUSG, Doepfer a-188-1 256 stage BBD, Doepfer a-188-1 4096 stage BBD, DIY manual gate/lag generator, Doepfer a-135 mixer, Doepfer a-101-2 LPG, DIY version of Fonitronik Attenuverting Mixer and Buchla 292C LPG clone using boards from Thomas White.”
