Soulsby Oscitron is listed as a 8 bit oscillator, but I think that is underselling what this thing really is.
The truth is this is a Vocoder, oscillator, wave shaper, phaser, bit crusher, and much more all in one module that can be freely hacked and updated. The wood ends are the first sign that this is a module unlike any other. you can use those wood end checks to hold new faceplate cover templates in place as they are released essentially updating the whole faceplate as you go. This is a truly novel approach to the idea of a multi function eurorack module. The menu system is easy to navigate while having quite an impressive depth of features. For that reason I have decided to handle demo videos of this module in parts. enjoy the first part in this series below! for more info check out Soulsby Synths. price is roughly $299 at USA dealers

Siglent is a leader in the oscilloscope market. Both win affordability and features Siglent scopes continue to impress. This review I decided to show how these wonderful scopes can be used by audio professionals to better understand our gear and sounds. This particular scope is in their upper mid range segment with a absolutely stunning display. check out the video below for more details!. Head to Siglent to order one of these or their other scopes today!
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
The BeatHawk iPad app has been hotly anticipated for some time now. With powerful step sequencing, easy to use sample recording and editing, song arrangement, fx and more. BeatHawk from UVI boasts and intuitive workflow that lends it self greatly to instant hands on creation of beats while on the go or in the studio.
BeatHawk offers full support for CoreMIDI, Inter-App Audio, AudioBus, Audio Copy and WIST allowing you to create with your favorite tools in whatever way you like. Play your tracks with an external MIDI keyboard or sequence them over Wi-Fi from your computer. If you want to wrap up a track in your favorite DAW just export the stems or MIDI files, it couldn’t be simpler.
Yes thats right! Anyone can build the 555 timer LFO… and to prove it, I let my 8 year old daughter do it! This was Elly’s first time soldering and she enjoyed it immensely (even with a minor mishap!) If she can jump on the Synth DIY horse, SO CAN YOU!
The 555 Timer Oscillator from Synthrotek will be a modulation source for our upcoming Delay Dev kit circuit. (and other circuits as we will keep this modular!)
the Idea is to use this to modulate the rate of the delay board.
For this project, we won’t be hooking up power just yet as I plan on daisy chaining the power off of another circuit first.
we also will not solder on the attenuator just yet as we will be using wire so that we can place the board more efficiently inside of the case. You can buy the 555 Timer LFO HERE—> Synthrotek Store it’s only $15.
This circuit is a very basic one which is why I have chosen it to be our starting point. It is also quite inexpensive with very easy soldering so it should make a great first time soldering project!
A ring Modulator basically takes two incoming signals and combines them spitting out what results in a modulated version of the original signal. This technique was used to create the famous Dalek voices in DR. Who television series.
It can also be used to beef up synth signals, Warp Drum tones, and distort strings etc. overall just a very useful circuit to have handy.
The Passive Ring Mod doesn’t require a power source so no worries there.
