Limited quantity of Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA lowpass gate just landed! …plus Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2

Sputnik Modular Vintage Synth Lab Matttech Modular 25.04.19-min

Well we weren’t expecting to ever see THIS vactrol-adorned badboy again! …but here it is – a final run of the excellent Sputnik Modular QUAD VCF/VCA. This module is a Buchla-inspired 4 channel lowpass gate with three different modes (VCA,VCF or COMBO/BOTH) which can be set on a per-channel basis. It features individual outs for each LPG, alongside internal mixing to 3 different sum outputs (ODD channels only, EVEN channels only, and ALL).

This was one of the first modules we stocked at Matttech Modular, and we loved it when we tested it out (see demos below, which sound just as good as we remember them!). We’ve had many customers ask whether there would ever be another run of them….and the answer has always been “no” – but here it is! No idea why these have suddenly appeared again. Maybe the manufacturer got sick of folk asking and did another run to shut them up 🙂

Likely to be the units ever available, so don’t hang about if you want one!


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


We have also topped up the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 mk.2. This has to be one of the most characterful filters we’ve ever come across – and immediately makes anything you put through it sound like it has been locked away up in the attic under dust sheets for several decades (that’s a GOOD thing, by the way). Where the Sputnik works its magic via the use of vactrols, this beauty uses a discrete diode filter circuit, inspired by the 1970s Univox Mini-Korg synthesizer’s “Traveler” filter section.

Manhattan Analog – SVVCF [matttech]

Manhattan Analog SVVCF Audio Demos

 

INTRODUCTION

A set of fairly basic demos, using the Manhattan Analog SVVCF Multimode Filter. I aimed to keep to the one-to-two minute mark as much as possible, as I do have the tendency to record way too much material!

Demos 02 to 06 were based around the same patch, to demonstrate how the SVVCF responds to a variety of tweaking, techniques and modulation. Demos 01 and 07 were slightly more freeform patches.


 

DEMO 01 – Lowpass Squelch

Some gloriously squelchy Lowpass meandering and wobbling.

Patch Details 

1. Three outputs from Intellijel Rubicon into the SVVCF’s three mixer inputs.
2. Slow random gates clocking the Turing Machine
3. Further random gates triggering the Makenoise Function
4. One output from the Turing Machine’s “Voltages” expander used to modulate the SVVCF’s cutoff, and the second output gradually introduced in order to modulate the BOTH input of the Function, randomly altering the envelope length.
5. Various controls tweaked during the recording: SVVCF’s cutoff, resonance, input levels, CV input level; Voltage’s output scaling.

Some reverb applied during mixdown.


 

DEMO 02 – Input Drive

Patch Details

1. Direct out from SVVCF, with three waves fed into the 3 mixer inputs to demonstrate how it responds to level tweaking.
2. A Saw, Double-Saw and Pulse were used, all coming from the Intellijel Rubicon.
3. Modulation was applied to the Exp FM and PWM of the Rubicon, whilst it was being SYNCed (HARD SYNC) from a Dixie, set to drone on one note.

Slight reverb added during mixdown. No EQ.


 

DEMO 03 – Lowpass Envelopes

Patch Details

1. Filter (LP) output used this time, with Rubicon’s Double-Saw, Zigzag and Pulse waves used – again, synced to the Dixie.
2. Two different z4000 ADSRs were used, triggered by different random gate outputs from the a149-2 – one with a soft attack, and one with a snappy attack.
3. The snappy one was also set up so that short gates would fire off its fast release stage, but longer ones would set a slow decay in motion.
4. The levels of the different waves in the SVVCF mixer, the cutoff/ resonance, and the CV attenuators were tweaked during recording.

Slight reverb added during mixdown. No EQ.


 

DEMO 04 – Bendy Bandpass

Patch Details 

1. For this recording, the SYNC provided by the Dixie (in the previous demos) was removed, and the Rubicon’s frequency was lowered substantially, so that it dived down into rhythmic clicking territory.
2. The Bandpass output of the SVVCF was used, with the same two z4000 ADSRs controlling the cutoff, and one of them multed to the Exp FM input of the Rubicon to further bend things.

Slight reverb added during mixdown. No EQ.


 

DEMO 05 – Highpass Self-Osc

Patch Details 

1. On this demo the Rubicon’s SUB was added into proceedings, combined in the SVVCF mixer alongside the Double-Sine and Pulse.
2. The Rubicon’s main frequency was set to a more reasonable range, in order to accommodate the SUB.
3. The Highpass mode was used this time, and I set the SVVCF up so that it was tracking the same sequence that was controlling the Rubicon’s pitch.
4. Gradually I bring in the resonance until it is self-oscillating alongside the oscillator waves.
5. After a while I start backing off some of the waves to demonstrate how the self-oscillation and mixer saturation combine together to create a wide range of extra tones.

No effects added during mixdown. No EQ.


 

DEMO 06 – Highpass Self-Osc SUB FM

Patch Details 

1. On this recording I used solely the Double-Sine wave from the Rubicon, at a fairly high pitch, and then used the SUB output to FM the SVVCF in Highpass mode.
2. Gradually I increase the FM amount, and also tweak the Resonance.
3. It’s amazing how much it sounds like i’ve actually added another waveform into the filter’s audio input, when in reality it’s merely the effect of the cutoff being modulated, bringing in lower frequencies.


 

DEMO 07 – Warm Plonks

This recording used a different patch from the previous 5, and is a slightly longer demo – gradually creeping out of my self-imposed one minute limit!

Patch Details 

1. Various complex random rhythmic triggers and gates were set up in a Sequential Switch, in order to clock the a155 sequencer, and also to fire off envelopes from the Function, switching between its Trigger and Signal Inputs via a Voltage Controlled Switch.
2. So…erratic patterns and envelopes were achieved, with modulation sent into the envelopes to add further variety.
3. The SVVCF was used, fed by 3 Rubicon outputs, and the a155 controled the Pitch of the Rubicon, along with the 1v/oct CV input of the SVVCF.
4. A Dixie FM’d the Rubicon to add interest.
5. The SVVCF’s Cutoff and Resonance were tweaked during recording, as were the FM settings on the Rubicon.

Manhattan Analog – VCA [matttech]

Manhattan Analog VCA Audio Demos

 

INTRODUCTION

Here’s a couple of little demos of the Manhattan Analog THAT-based VCA. I have endeavoured to demonstrate how it responds to a variety of envelope shapes, along with some outright abuse via audio rate Amplitude Modulation.


 

DEMO 01 – PEG Envelopes & AM

Patch Details 

1. Braids was used as the sound source.
2. The 4MS Pingable Envelope Generator was set up to produce various chaotic, random envelopes.
3. The Doepfer a149-1 was used to modulate the DIVISION of the left envelope, and then the EOR output was sent to the right PEG envelope to ping it – but this envelope was set to half the DIVISION of the left one – this creates an effect whereby one envelope receives its modulation first, juddering away, and then the second one follows a short time afterwards once the EOR pings get through to it.
4. The EOR output of the left envelope was also used to sync the start of Braids’ waveform, via the TRIG input – giving the clicks more consistency.
5. The outputs of the two envelopes were sent into the two CV inputs of the Manhattan VCA, and brought in manually during the recording. The OFFSET on the VCA was also tweaked a little way in, filling out the sound.
6. The PEG’s envelopes were set to Exponential and Logarithmic shapes respectively – as you will be able to hear in the recording, one is much “spikier” than the other.
7. Towards the end I drive the PEG up into audio rates, and some savage AM (Amplitude Modulation) of the VCA occurs.

Reverb added during mixdown. No EQ.


 

DEMO 02 – PEG Envelopes & AM

Patch Details

1. This quickly became the most chaotic demo so far: Braids was again used as the sound source, but this time it was heavily FM’d by a Piston Honda (can you imagine a more gritty form of FM?). They both crap out at high FM settings, so they are a match made in heaven (or hell, depending on how you look at it..).
2. The TIMBRE and COLOUR of Braids were modulated by the PEG, with the envelopes set up in a similar way to the previous patch – but with even more modulation (of the SKEW, CURVE and DIVISION…).
3. Braids’ main pitch was controlled by an output from the a149-1, which was also providing all of the other modulation sent to the PEG.
4. The Manhattan Analog VCA added the final icing on a fairly disgusting cake, smashing it all to bits with an unhealthy serving of Amplitude Modulation, courtesy of the two PEG envelopes.
5. An a149-2 random gate was used to sporadically toggle the CYCLE of the PEG back and forth from one envelope to the other.
6. To add insult to injury, Braids was put into META mode.

Reverb added during mixdown. No EQ.

Rossum Electro-Music PANHARMONIUM Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer now in stock!

Rossum Matttech Modular 06.07.19

We are excited to announce that the highly anticipated Rossum Electro-Music PANHARMONIUM is now in stock!

All preorders will ship our today, and there are only a handful of units left for ordering via the website


AVAILABLE TO ORDER HERE!!!


Rossum Electro-Music Software Architect Bob Bliss (who also, as it happens, fathered E-mu’s famed “EOS” Emulator Operating System) has created Panharmonium, a unique music and sound design tool that lets you analyze the spectral content of any audio signal and use that analysis to drive a bank of from 1 to 33 oscillators. Depending on various control settings, Panharmonium can accurately reproduce the input spectrum in real time or modify it in a multitude of wildly creative ways. All with an interface whose immediacy encourages performance and interaction.

Panharmonium input can be anything from a single oscillator to an entire mix (including vocals). From dense, swirling pads and drones that evolve with the input’s changing spectrum, to clock-syncable spectral arpeggiation, to as-yet unnamed harmonic effects, Panharmonium opens up an entirely new world of sonic possibilities.

Additionally, Panharmonium can take a snapshot of an instantaneous spectrum and use that as a complex harmonic oscillator, which can then be modified and modulated by all of Panharmonium’s other controls.

TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock: 15 modes, VC-Switching, Internal FM, VCA & more..

TubeOhm Matttech Modular 19.02.19

Super-excited to have some fully-assembled units of the TubeOhm SMR4P MULTI VCF back in stock – one of the most intriguing and unique designs we’ve seen in a while.

It is based on the SMR4mk.II filter circuit, and offers the 15 different filter modes of the 4-Pole MISSION VCF (both originally available for Mutable Instruments’ Shruthi Synthesizer)

It has the ability to switch filter modes under voltage control – along with a unique “internal FM” option which further adds to the available timbres by applying audio rate modulation to the cutoff point. This produces an alternate “dirtier” tone for each of the filter types.

We have tried this filter out in person, and can wholeheartedly recommend it – in fact,  Its basic sound is clean, clear and possesses a beautifully “liquidy” squelchy vibe – similar to the Doepfer a105 or Tiptop z2040 at times – but you’re not stuck with a single Lowpass mode. However, when you apply the internal FM it turns into a totally different beast, becoming a lot more aggressive and gnarly. In addition, when you take into account all the 15 modes it is hard to imagine a wider range of filtering in 10hp. Check the video below for examples!

Usually only available in (a rather complicated) kit form, these are lovingly assembled in Germany by the designer himself – Andre Laska 🙂

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE

Features:

  • Multimode 4-pole Voltage Controlled Filter with self-oscillation
  • 15 filter types with voltage controlled switching & LED matrix display
  • Onboard VCA
  • Outputs for VCF direct and also via VCA
  • Internal FM feature
  • CV inputs for Resonance, VCA Gain, Cutoff & 1v/oct
  • 20 Hz – 22kHz (Res 24dB)
  • Max signal amp input 5V p
  • Modulation: ext. 0-10 v
