Doepfer A-102 Diode Filter Video Tutorials by Raul Pena

Another brand new tutorial series by Raul Pena.
The series that started today is all about the A-102 Diode filter module.
Enjoy!

Video 1: Doepfer A102 Diode Filter-Introduction and Basics

" Introduction to the basic features and functions of the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter.
This filter was modeled after a classic EMS filter.
Sound demonstrations begin in further segments.
Sound and Video by Raul Pena."

Video 2: Doepfer A102 Diode Filter Part Two- VCF as Sine Wave Oscillator

"Next Segment in the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter series.
This time we explore how to use this filter as a Sine Wave Oscillator.
Sound and Video by Raul Pena."

Video 3: Doepfer A102 Diode Filter Part Three- Basic Filtering

" Next Segment in the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter series.
This time we explore the sounds created with basic filtering with the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter.

Video 6: Doepfer A102 Diode Filter-Comparing other filters Part Two

" Further exploration at similarities between the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter and other filters.
The Doepfer A102-1 Low Pass gate/12 db filter(similar to a Buchla LPG) and the A124 Wasp Filter (from the EDP Wasp) are heard issue by side in this video.
Sound and Video by Raul Pena."

Video 7: Doepfer A102 Diode Filter- Comparing other filters Part Three

" Further exploration at similarities between the Doepfer A102 Diode Filter and other filters. The Doepfer A106-1 Xtreme filter /12db low pass (similar to an Korg MS20 filter) and the A125 Phase Shifter are heard issue by side in this video. Sound and Video by Raul Pena."

DIY Modular Case Ideas

There are many ways to house your (eurorack) modular synth, i wrote about the pre-manufactured options from Doepfer earlier, find that post HERE, but of course you can also try to build you own case.
There are many ways to make your own A-100/Eurorack case if you start out with just the basic rails and busboard, and you can make it as cheap or expensive as you can.

Check out a few ideas;
Wooden cabinets and side-panels are still very popular amongst (modular) synth enthusiasts.
These simple case standards for the pre-manufactured LC9 cases are very simple, and can be sooo useful

Matthew Goike (@Goiks) also has some nice wooden cabinets on display and for sale on his website: http://www.goike.com/node/5

...or do what Stretta did (or rather what his brother did), make a high-end wood/brushed aluminium cabinet with integrated LED-lights and some …

Doepfer A-150-8 Octal Manual/Voltage Controlled Programmable Switches Announced

Doepfer has just released some info on their new modules for NAMM 2017 (19-21 jan.) Besides some vintage editions of existing modules, the A-135ABC VC Performance mixer modules, the A-110-6Trapezoid Thru Zero Quadrature VCO and a new A-100LC1 case (economically priced small housing with 48 HP width) there was also one other interesting new module announcement:
Module A-150-8 contains eight manually/voltage controlled switches.  Each of the eight switches has a manual control button (Man.), a control voltage input (CV), a common Out / Input (O/I), and two In / Outputs (I/O1, I/O2).  The switches are bi-directional, i.e. they can work in both directions, so can connect one input to either of two outputs, or either of two inputs to one output. 
Two LEDs show which in / output is active (ie. which is connected to the common out / input).  In addition the LEDs are used for the programming of the module: For each unit the operating mode can be selected:  Toggle or Level controlled. In Toggl…

Happy New Year From PatchPierre

Hi there, it's me again... Happy New Year!

You might have noticed that I havent posted a lot in the last 2 years...
It's been a rough time for me since the sudden loss of two parents within a relatively short time-span and I really needed some time to get myself together... to set things straight, finding myself and selecting priorities... even my regular work suffered from this breakdown.

It took a while to understand it all, and to get a better grip on it, and it's sometimes still not very clear.
I think I have found a way to cope with most of it now... although the slight autism that I have (ADD-like) doesn't make it easy for, especially in crowds with lots of people I don't know...
On my journey I also (re-)discovered the beautiful woman that has always lived inside of me and that i need to accept and cherish... more on that maybe later... I'm not considering changing the name of the blog to PatchPetra.Net 😇 (...yet), but you might spot me somewhere at mod…
