Behringer VC340 Vocoder + 101-VCO [Demo #1]


Today the gorgeous sounds of the Behringer VC340 Vocoder
Strings and Choir paired with my 101-VCO on arpeggio.
101-VCO going to my 101-VCF for that classic SH-101 sound.
Future Retro Transient is going to the vocoder mic input.
Transient is modulated by Batumi to result in those
shifting vocoder effects - almost chanting/talking?
Arturia Drumbrute Impact is clocked to the Beatstep Pro.
Some Big Sky reverb and Timefactor Delay.

Recorded direct to Tascam DR-05.

Behringer Neutron First Patch [Demo #1]


Today a first patch soundscape/sequence on my new muse,
the Behringer Neutron. Listen that on headphones. No, really.

I haven't come across any compelling demos on the Neutron.
It has great specs, but not much attention was given.
Until I had a chance to play one last weekend at the Dallas Synth Meet.
HOLY SHNITZEL. This thing blew me away.
The analog BBD delay section is one of the nicest.
So responsive, expressive,
...and lovely thick feedback harmonics.
You can ride the feedback right up to pure chaos, then
back away. It will abide your every move.
And every time I tweaked something it got better and better.
I am really looking forward to getting more cutting edge
sound design with this one!

Sequencing: Beatstep Pro
Recorded Direct to Tascam DR-05.
Additional delay using Timefactor Delay.

SH2-VCF IS BACK! Version 2 using BA662 clones

I am happy to announce the SH2-VCF is available once again.
It was very important that Version 2 had all the same glory.
And the BA662 clones this one uses can definitely deliver the goods.

Sequencing a Univox Minikorg 700S [Demo #3] Using KVP + Beatstep Pro


Third video on the Univox Minikorg.
This Minikorg has been modified to take an external pitch CV + gate signal.
It expects pitch in hz/v and lo-active gates.
While the Beatstep Pro can do it - it's a global setting.
Using my KVP module to convert the signals, it means I don't need to mess w/ the BSP globals whenever I hook up a Korg product.

Timestamp
0:00 Pt 1: Delay- Timefactor
1:36 Pt 2: Percussion - Basimilus Iteritas Alter, FR Transient (hats)
3:13 Pt 3: Percussion - Basimilus Iteritas Alter
Bass Pad - 101-VCO/101-VCF/106-Chorus
Delay - Timefactor
Reverb - Big Sky

KVP details at Modular Grid.

Recorded direct to Tascam DR-05.

Meet the Makers of Modular

GSE is humbled to be included in a Tech Crunch article focusing on the makers of modular synthesizers.

"Fuelled by passion not venture capital, most companies in the Eurorack space are neither startups nor established OEMs. Instead – and quite remarkably – the industry remains a long tail of boutique manufacturers, with some of the best-sellers still operating as one-person shops." -Steve O'Hear, Tech Crunch article "Meet the Makers of Modular"

GSE 101-VCO Audio Only [Demo 3] (Roland SH-101) (No Talking)


Audio only demo of my new 101-VCO with the 101-VCF. The 101-VCO is Eurorack adaptation the Roland SH-101 voltage controlled oscillator. Feeding it various sequences and CVs while changing the settings. At the end I mix an envelope signal with the pitch CV to get a nice PWM Hoover sound, then plug a second oscillator into the Hard Sync.

101-VCO full details at Modular Grid

Recorded direct to Tascam DR-05.
No additional effects or processing.

First Batch 101-VCO Sub-Octave Generator Issue

Attention first batch VCO-101 buyers: I've been hashing over the prototype and noticing some situations result in poor performance of the Sub Octave Generator. I realize this sucks very much now, and would love to make some simple mods to your unit so the Sub generator works brilliantly.

Buyers can ship their unit back to me affordably using first class mail and I'll make the necessary mods, then I'll ship it back at no charge.

FWIW, the second batch boards will have the right mods. Third batch boards will have redesigned PCBs w/ the fix. Thank you for your attention and kind patience.
