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

New MUTES module from Eurorack demo producer extraordinaire – our man DivKid! In stock now..

DivKid Matttech Modular 14.02.19

Well, well, well….THIS is something exciting! Ben “DivKid” Wilson – longtime friend and huge contributor to the modular scene, both in the UK and further afield – has cooked up his very first Eurorack Module, MUTES. This was produced in collaboration with Spanish modular manufacturer Befaco, and together they have produced a classy bit of kit.

DivKid has been a huge part of the recent growth in modular, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting his new venture!


AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE


MUTES goes above and beyond basic muting by allowing you to split groups of signals to multiple destinations, making it great for FX dub performing and varied signal routing.

You also get a three position switch giving you: MOMENTARY signal pass through (it springs back to the centre when released); OFF (or muted) in the centre; and ON to the right. We’ve also added vactrols to the circuit giving the switching a pleasing decay for both audio and modulation as well a totally click free muting. This module can add mutes to anything, your mixer, module inputs or outputs, modulation signals, sequencers, gate sources and more.

Noise Engineering – Loquelic Iteritas [matttech]


 

INTRODUCTION

This suite of demos resulted from some rather excitable experimenting with the newly-acquired Noise Engineering Loquelic Iteritas VCO. I had been looking forward to this release, and it didn’t disappoint! These recordings were whizzed off extremely quickly, and no edits were made to the recordings whatsoever. All of the demos are based around the same patch, which is detailed below. For each new recording I added a couple of elements – some extra modulation, or switching to a different mode.

Mix processing was kept to a minimum, with some subtle reverb and delay used, along with some limiting and sidechain compression.


 

DEMO 01 – SS Mode (Fold & Morph)

For demo 01 SS mode was used (“Summation Synthesis”), and only the FOLD & MORPH parameters / CV inputs were used; the second oscillator on the Loquelic was left untouched (no Pitch nodulation).

Patch Details

1. z8000 Sequencer into LI Pitch CV input
2. The Loquelic’s Output into Oakley Classic VCA
3. A randomly-triggered 4ms PEG envelope was patched into the VCA’s Linear CV input, producing the spiky rhythmic plucks.
4. A second, softer envelope from Maths was randomly triggered and sent into the VCA’s second CV input. This envelope was also used to control the Fold on the Loquelic – via an attenuator
5. A slower cycling envelope from Maths was used to modulate the Morph parameter on the Loquelic
6. The intensity of the various modulations, along with their associated offset controls, were manipulated during the recording.


 

DEMO 02 – SS Mode (Fold, Morph & Modulation)

This recording used the same patch as Demo 01, with the following alterations – mainly the addition of the Modulation parameter.

1. The Modulate control of the Loquelic was manually tweaked, and a randomly-triggered Quadra envelope was sent into its CV input.
2. The level of this envelope was manually tweaked during the recording, as was the Pitch of Oscillator B, which affects the overall sound (not looked at what it does yet, but the variations in tone you get when messing with it are IMMENSE)
3. At points oscillator B produces almost chorused effect, whereas at other times – when set low in pitch – it produces nice “splattery” rhythmic LFO effects. Both are excellent


 

DEMO 03 – SS Mode (Fold, Morph, Modulation & Damp)

This recording was the same patch as Demo 02, with the following alteration:

1. A randomly-triggered envelope was used to control the Damp parameter on the Loquelic.
2. This parameter’s knob was also tweaked during the recording, as were all the other sound manipulation controls on the Loquelic: Morph, Fold, Modulate…and the Pitch of oscillator B


 

DEMO 04 – SS Mode (Fold, Morph, Modulation & Damp)

This demo used the same patch as Demo 03, but with minor tweaks, largely the following:

1. Less VCA modulation near the start – Loquelic was left to drone on more, with some sidechain compression applied via a plugin


 

DEMO 05 – VO (VOSIM) Mode

This demo uses the same patch as Demo 04, but with now we’re in VO (“VOSIM”) mode, and the following alterations were made:

1. I mainly concentrated on modulating the Damp parameter to begin with, as that made the sound go from thin and fizzy to bold and woody. Nice
2. As the recording progressed I experimented with bringing the other cv sources in and out.
3. I’ve also used a multiple to duplicate the main sequence into oscillator B’s 1v/oct CV input, instead of simply leaving it droning at a static pitch


 

DEMO 06 – PM (Phase Modulation) Mode

For the final demo (for today!) I used the same patch as Demo 05, but now we’re in PM mode (Phase Modulation)

1. Basically, bedlam broke out… and I mashed into all available parameters with gay abandon. This could literally go on all night!

Summary – this is the best VCO I’ve played with in absolutely ages. I never, at any point, had to look at the manual to figure it out – and there were very few points where I made unusably awful noises, or went down completely dead ends – which, to me, is the measure of a great module.

Erica Synths PICO VCF1 – Three Demos [matttech]

pico-vcf1-demo-01

 

INTRODUCTION

These demos show the range of tones that are available from the Erica Synths PICO VCF1, a cut-down version of the Polivoks Filter circuit. Particular attention is paid on all demos to the level feeding the filter, through tweaking of the waveform mixer’s channel levels. This allows for control over the growliness/ drive of the filter.


 

DEMO 01 – Filtered PWM Wave Stack

Patch Details 

1 – Several waves from an Intellijel Rubicon were layered in a mixer, and fed into the VCF1
2 – PWM was applied to the higher pulse wave
3 – An envelope and sequencer CV were combined in a Mutable Instruments Shades mixer – along with the third channel, which was used to apply an offset to the filter cutoff when desired
4 – This was fed into the filter cutoff modulation
5 – Filter cutoff and intensity of modulation were tweaked throughout…along with the channel levels on the waveform mixer

VCF1 output was recorded direct with no processing.


 

DEMO 02 – Squelchy Saw & Sine Sub

Patch Details 

The patch for this demo was similar to Demo 01, except that the waves were changed – with a Sine Wave used for a sub, with a Saw over the top.

As before, levels feeding the filter were tweaked, along with the modulation of the cutoff. Resonance was also tweaked into self-oscillation towards the end.

VCF1 output was recorded direct with no processing.


 

DEMO 03 – Gnarly Self-Oscillation

Patch Details 

For this third demo, the sequence was slowed down a lot, with self-oscillation applied throughout. The tweaking of the input levels to the filter create wildly different effects when they interact with the self-oscillation tones.

Some reverb was applied to this recording.
