Harmonaig Poly | with 3 Plaits & Arbhar

Harmonaig Poly After building a mono patch with the Harmonaig and Strega, it’s now time to have some fun with three Plaits and the 1v/oct input of Arbhar. Music theory is very valuable when you need to compose something, but with Harmonaig, you can easily get away with not knowing any of it. I used…

Harmonaig Solo with Strega

Harmonaig Solo | with Strega The Instruo Harmonaig (harmony) is designed to drive four voices into all kinds of chords and progressions. In this video I am using the Harmonaig to control Strega’s pitch and delay speed into some amazing new sounds. So when you spend some time with the Witch, don’t forget to mult…

Reel Life | Instruo Lubadh Part 02 | Grand Theft Audio

Instruo Lubadh – Grand Theft Audio With the Expert Sleepers ES-8 as an audio interface, I can basically grab and rip any audio on my PC so there’s a huge potential for samplers, granulators and loopers. But there’s also the risk of getting a copyright claim when you record/sample something that’s owned by a big…

Arbhar Harvesting | Part 03 | A Shared Guest

Arbhar Harvesting In this episode I am going to ‘harvest’ six improvised patches from the MakeNoise Shared System and turn the Arbhar in a polyphonic West Coast orchestra. I guess you can consider this as a ‘Shared Guest’ part 03 too so I’ll add them to both playlists.

Grains | Instruo #Arbhar

Grains | Instruo #Arbhar I am so happy my eurocrack dealer stashed an Arbhar for regular customers. I’ve been waiting for over six months to get one. There are a few excellent videos on YT that do a deep dive. I can’t do that right now, because I haven’t finished the manual yet. I started…

Sonic Adventures | 0-coast, Arbhar, Mimeophon, ZVERB, Phonogenes

Sonic Adventures | 0-coast, Arbhar, Mimeophon, ZVERB, Phonogenes This one features a 0-coast ‘patch from scratch’ and some sound design for games & movies. I’ll use modern modules like Arbhar and Mimeophon to layer the sound of 0-coast, but a simple drone from 0-coast can be seriously enhanced with the affordable ZVERB and two old…

Instruo Lion – Matrix Mixing

Instruo Lion – Matrix Mixing In this patch, I’ll demo one (1) advanced routing scenario where I have a stereo source (two Phonogenes), two FX units with mono inputs, and stereo out. I wanted to preserve the stereo source and ‘send/return’ both channels to different effects. Normally you’d need a clever mixer with send/returns (like…

Instruō – Saïch Quad Oscillator

Instruō – Saïch Overview Instruo located in Glasgow, Scotland has launched another eurorack module. The Instruō saïch is a quad oscillator with super-saw functionality and built-in “smart” VCA mixing. At its core are four fully analog sawtooth waveforms that can be intervallic offset, individually and globally detuned, transformed and transposed, and mixed together in creative…

Reel Life – Instruo #Lubadh | Part 01 | Tape Degradation

Reel Life – Instruo #Lubadh When I first saw Lubadh on paper it reminded me of the Morphagene a bit, but after seeing a demo from designer Jason Lim (2 hours!) I just knew it was something completely different – and a perfect match for the music I love most. In Part 01 I’ll start…

Arbhar, Morphagene, BitBox 3.0, Clouds, and Phonogene – Granular Synthesis Showdown

GrainStation | Granular Synthesis Showdown Granular Synthesis is an excellent way to travel the tiny little gems that are covered inside and connecting sound. A ‘grain’ is a really small piece of a sound source, that can be stretched, pitched, reversed, and triggered. A ‘spray’ is a certain number of grains playing at once at…

Arbhar Harvesting – Part 02 | Moog Mother-32 | Arbhar Scan Mode

Arbhar Harvesting – Part 02 It took me a while, but here’s part 02 of the ‘harvesting’ series. In this series I like to granulate a module and see what comes out. I’ve been trying Plaits and Plonk before, but the results weren’t good enough to publish, so they will be covered later. However, the…

Arbhar Harvesting | Part 01 | MakeNoise Mysteron

Arbhar Harvesting Part 01 Hi all, Arbhar is my personal favorite module of 2020 so I am happy to show you how cool it is. Arbhar means ‘Corn’ or ‘Grain’ in Scottish Gaeilic so ‘harvesting’ has a nice ring. I am also a huge fan of granular synthesis, and – again personally – I feel…

E-RM #PolyGogo | Shared Guests | Part 01

E-RM #PolyGogo | Shared Guests | Part 01 The DPO is the Shared System’s main oscillator. In this series I want to investigate the impact of a VCO on a system. Will a Shared System with a Plaits still sound like a Make Noise rig? Or will it lose its identity? And how about a…

FlowerPower – Instruo #Scion

FlowerPower – Instruo #Scion ‘In the beginning, the Earth was empty, and God placed a little seed in the Earth. Then there was light, and from the Earth, a little green plant emerged. It grew strong and tall, and God called it Paradise’. O.G. Purp (original from theTrickaz’ Cloud City, remix by Cinematic). I bought…

Rings into Clouds

Rings into Clouds Revisiting a classic combo that dominates ambient modular music, and for a good reason.

Complex Oscillator Cs-L by Instruō & DPO by Make Noise

Complex Oscillator Cs-L & DPO We get asked this question all the time here at Signal Sounds so we decided to make a little video showing off some of the features and sounds of Cs-L & DPO. Cš-L is a dual voltage controlled oscillator. It takes the modern approach of dual primary oscillators and expands…
