eowave position sensors in a modular context

eowave make a lot of different sensors and they're all supposed to be used with their eobody (USB/MIDI-Converter) or their newer sensorbox.

I found out that the position sensors work fine for voltage control without extra modification by plugging them straight into the A-177-1, thus avoiding MIDI and all that.

Here are two videos, the newer one first: 

this time the top sensor controlled TipTop Z5000's Hall Reverb C, with the other three ribbons routed to the E350 through LPG again.

ribbons -> 2 x Doepfer A-177 Foot Controller

-> PlanB Elf LFO pitch (-> A-124 Wasp Filter + f(h) SoS)
-> A-124 cutoff
-> SoS rate
-> Maths both control -> ASol CVT -> A-186-1 Gate/Trigger Combiner -> A-143-2 -> PLanB M13 (fed by E350 Morphing Terrarium)
-> E350 Morph Z

the A-177-1 has one multed output, so i controlled two destinations with one ribbon simultaneously: first SoS rate (inverted) and Maths both control, later A-124 cutoff and Maths both control.
one-handed is more difficult...

Lamp2 module from Synthwerks

Here they are illuminating two Doepfer Light-to-CV modules below in my controller case.

It has two USB sockets for lamps, each with its dedicated dimmer (different from those pictured here). Great module idea, very useful! Available at Schneider's now.

After Navs' brilliant suggestion to use the Topobrillo wavefolder for clock syncopation, i tried the same with the Doepfer A-137 wave multiplier. The track also demos the Flight Of Harmony "Sound Of Shadows" digital delay module.


Morphing Terrarium (2)

This is part 2 of my demo of the Synthesis Technology E350 ("Morphing Terrarium", here in variable phase shift-mode (accessible via jumper 7 on the back of the module) that enables the waves to form lissajous patterns. I added a Doepfer BBD and an Analogue Solutions VCO to spice up the drones. Sorry for the compression. I wanted the video to be this long, but it also had to be under 500MB… Part 3 will demonstrate the use of Bank C waveforms as LFOs.

Morphing Terrarium (1)

I admit it: waveteable synthesis was never anything i particularly cared about. I seldom used the wavetable OSCs in my Evolver, let alone was i ever interested in dedicated wavetable synths. Until yesterday, when i received the SynthTech E350 module in euro format. It was the morphing feature and the LFO-capabilities that sold me to it. This thing sounds and looks incredible, and build quality is extraordinary. I had been curious all the time what the waves would look like on the scope when morphed... so naturally that was the first thing to do: hook it up to the MFB VD-01 and TFT display.
Here's the first demo of the Synthesis Technology E350 ("Morphing Terrarium") eurorack module and its waveforms. Two Doepfer A-179s (Light-to-CV) were used as controller modules. Left hand controlled Borg filter cutoff, right hand speed of the LFO driving the sequence. This first video shows the xy- and z-outputs in normal mode. Part 2 will focus on the 'hidden' variable-phase-shift mode.

Blacet Time Machine and Doepfer A-188-1d used simultaneously (the latter filtered by Wiard Joy Rider double Borg).
Frac modules can be mounted in slanted MFB-Euro-frames for easy operation. Although you can screw them in only at the upper rail, they sit firm and tight.

I whipped up a little track with that last patch....

Doepfer A-143-2 Quad ADSR controlling 3 LPGs

Doepfer A-143-2 Quad ADSR controlling 3 LPGs from katavist on Vimeo.

This is a fairly basic (and visually boring, sorry) demo of the A-143-2, showing one of many possible uses. The patch was rather complex with Wiard Malekko Anti-Oscillator as the only audio-source, Wiard Malekko Borg Filter in LPG mode, PlanB Model 13 (both gates), MakeNoise Maths voltage mirroring MFB Dual LFO random output - this output and the mirrored cv were mixed by a Doepfer A-138c Polarizing Mixer (with additional inputs from diy 8 step sequencer and Bugbrand Ctl-1 as 4 step 3 track sequencer) all controlling Anti-Osc pitch… Model 13 SUM-output also into Doepfer A-188-1 4096 stages BBD whose output was filtered by Wiard Joyrider double Borg and finally sent to the Blacet Time Machine. First output from Model 13 into Doepfer A-137-1 Wave Multiplier I (which was fed 4 cvs from A-144 Morphing Controller modulated by A-147 VC LFO and then into diy spring reverb... plus some more senseless Maths patching and whatever I forgot... Ah, and thanks to TipTop for the wonderful stackcables!
