Live video Building the Synthrotek MST Dual Envelope eurorack module

This is a two part Live stream where I build the Synthrotek MST Dual Envelope kit. 

This kit is available from Synthrotek’s Store. You can grab this in kit form as seen here or as a completed module. 

The Stream is completely live and I take questions and discuss not just the process of building the module but we talk synths in general. so sit back, and enjoy.

Audio damage Kompressor Eurorack effect module

The Audio Damage Kompressor is a digital true stereo compressor that can also work as a Mono with side chain input compressor. occupying only 6 hp, this compressor packs a big punch for its small size. RATIO is a scaled control. The first half of the rotation goes from 1:1 to 1:10, and from 12 o’clock to fully clockwise, it goes from 1:10 to 1:1000 (infinite). Gain can give you up to 30+db of additional gain along with a soft internal saturation emulating an analog circuit.

The Build quality feels very solid and the compression is really quite well controlled. I’ve been using it both as an final mix compressor and as a drum squashing beast as well.

Arturia MatrixBrute (A few videos to quench your curiosity!)

The Arturia MatrixBrute is an impressive beast. I am here to give it a decent showing so you can better understand what this synth is really capable of. Admittedly this synth has so much potential, simple videos won’t do it justice and I really recommend getting some hands on time with this beast for yourself. Below are some videos I have done (and I plan on doing many more) that show off just what this thing sounds like and can do. Be sure to check out all of these videos and more!

First lets check out a simple Ladder filter comparison.

Now how about we make a patch from scratch 

And now how about a nice long live stream Q and A

and while we are at it how about an interview with the Product designer Glen Darcey
