EMW Wave Composition Oscillator Eurorack Module

YouTube Preview Image

This video is an official demo video for Electronic Music Works’ Wave Composition Oscillator – a Eurorack format synth module:

In this initial video we present a sample of some of the waveforms that can be produced by our Wave Composition Oscillator in Eurorack format.

Many others can be generated by combining the waves using different mixing levels and more waveforms. No filter or effect was used.

The EMW Wave Composition Oscillator is available now, priced at US $169.

Endorphin.es Furthrrrr Generator Eurorack Module (Sneak Preview)

YouTube Preview Image

This is a sneak preview, by Marko Ciciliani, of the new Endorphin.es Furthrrrr Generator Eurorack module – an advanced VCO

Features:

  • 30 HP width, up to 1? in depth
  • All analog signal path ‘inspired by and based on famous west coast synthesis’ — a module within the idea of harmonic generation based on additive synthesis theory
  • 2 discrete OTA triangle-core VCOs both with hard- (resetable) and soft- (inverting) syncs. The cores are self made custom encapsulated circuits with decent results of tracking (up to 6 octaves) as well as fine temperature stability
  • Selectable tracking (1 or 1.2 v/oct) by setting a jumper
  • Bolted potentiometers, wobble free for heavy duty
  • Multi-turn frequency knobs sweep up to 10 octaves
  • Oscillator tuners that ‘simply always work’
  • RoHS and cat friendly

Pricing and availability are TBA.

The Endorphin.es Furthrrrr Generator Eurorack VCO Module

Added to the Synthtopia Guide To Eurorack Modular Synthesizers: Endorphin.es is “a group of synth enthusiasts from Vienna/Austria, engineering modular synthesizers for sound design and contemporary art.”

They’ve announced their initial Euro module, the Furthrrrr Generator, an advance VCO module.

The harmonical section of the carrier oscillator involves a complex chain of waveshapers, crossfaders, wavefolder as well as the “Mood Index” with amplitude-, balanced-, frequency- and timbre-modulation.

Every parameter is voltage controlled, interacts with and depends on each others position.

Arturia MiniBrute Synthesizer Demonstration

YouTube Preview Image

This video, via DV247TV, takes a look at the new Arturia MiniBrute analog synthesizer.

The MiniBrute features a multimode Steiner-Parker filter, VCO with waveform mixer, arpeggiatior, MIDI, CV, USB connectivity and a 100% analogue signal path. Arturia also introduces some new features such as the Metalizer and Brute Factor to further add some shape to your sound.

Micro Phasemonger – New Analog Phaser Effect (Sneak Preview)

YouTube Preview Image

This video, via synthmonger, is an audio demo of the Micro Phasemonger analog phaser:

The micro Phasemonger is a 4 stage Phaser. The stages are controlled by a high frequency VCO. Underclocking the VCO causes an aliasing effect similar to that of bit crushing. I haven’t seen any other manufacturer do this with their phaser designs so I’m claiming mine as a world first. ;)

It is completely analog. No DSP.

Pricing and availability are TBA.
