Synthrotek ADSR eurorack module demo at Knobcon 2016

 

I will have a in studio demo/ review video of this module up shortly as I have since built one of these modules for myself and am very impressed with it. in the mean time check out the synthrotek store and grab one of these very handy modules. Synthrotek ADSR in Store

Synthrotek MST Dual Envelope for Eurorack Modular Synth

The MST Dual Envelope is a simple-to-use yet complex dual envelope generator. Channels 1 and 2 are both normalled to each other to cycle when the other respective channel hits end of cycle, allowing for really interesting ping-pong effects. Each channel also has an end-of-cycle trigger output with LED indicator. There’s a normal and inverted envelope out. The inverted envelope out can be further modified by the +5 offset switch, which allows the inverted waveform to travel in the positive. The + output level allows the envelope signal to go between zero and the maximum voltage rail. Attenuate the output level down for a more subtle envelope (adjust to taste).

How to Synth DIY part 4 ANYONE can Build the 555 LFO!

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.

How to Synth DIY part 3 The Passive Ring Modulator

The Passive Ring Modulator

 

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.

Take a look at the video and Have FUN!!!
