In this tutorial, you will learn the basics of patching in Multiphonics by creating a simple synthesizer based on subtractive synthesis.
The Objeq Filter module allows one to process a signal through acoustic objects such as a string, plate, drumhead, membrane, beam, and bar. This tutorial will teach you how to get the best out of this powerful module.
A VCA is an essential module in a modular rack. In this tutorial, you will learn about two important roles the VCA can play in a patch. First, how the VCA can be used to control the amplitude of an audio signal and then how it can add expression to a patch by controlling the amplitude of a modulation.
A Delay is another deceptively simple module which can be used in surprising ways. In this tutorial, we first go over the basics and show how to use the module to delay an audio signal. You will learn how to use feedback loops in order to obtain interesting echo effects and how to use the module to create stereo movements in your patches. We then look at how the module can be used to delay CV signals thereby adding motion to modulations. We conclude this tutorial with an example inspired from physical modeling in which the module is used in a waveguide-like manner and becomes a pitched sound source.
CV or Control Voltage is a key concept of modular synthesis. In this tutorial, we review the main types of CV signals available in Multiphonics (gates, triggers, LFO, envelope, pitch, velocity), how they behave, and how they can be used to modulate parameters of the different modules.
In this tutorial, we take a look at synchronization and the use of the Clock modules. You will learn how to synchronize modules inside a patch for the creation of rhythmic or melodic sequences. You will also learn how to synchronize different elements of your patches with the tempo of your DAW.
In this tutorial, we explore filtering using the State Variable Filter and Ladder Filter modules. Filtering is a core part of sound synthesis and these versatile modules cover a huge range of options. in this video we will review the different type of filters and how they work and give you a few ideas to try in your patches.
In this tutorial, we take a look at the Low Pass Gate module which borrows ideas from the world of west coast synthesis. This module is similar to a VCA but with low-pass filter behaviour which allows one to vary simultaneously the volume and brightness of a sound. It is a great option to spice-up your patches.
Following our tutorial on Synchronization, where the basics of the Sequencer modules were covered, we now look at more advanced uses of these modules. We explore different ways in which the sequencers can be used to create complex modulation signals to control parameters from other modules such as the ADSR, Filters, VCA, Glide and more. Building on these ideas, you will be able to experiment and create rich, exotic, and surprising patches.
In this video Adam Pietruszko explains how he built his Rectified Winds patch. See how he enhances a classic triangle wave lead patch with the clever use of waveshaping modules.
Learn how to create an effect patch which reacts to the dynamics of the incoming signal. In this video Adam Pietruszko explains how he uses the volume of the incoming signal in his Drive Wah patch as a control signal.
In this video, Adam Pietruszko uses the FX version of Multiphonics to create a patch simulating a megaphone patch and process a voice sample. Learn how he used filters, saturation, and a delay to achieve this effect.
A formant filter emulates the resonance frequency of the human vocal tract in order to recreate vowels. Learn how this type of filter works and how to create one with Multiphonics CV-2.
Adam Pietruszko explains how he used a band splitter and gate sequencer modules to create his Band Sequencer patch which uses gating to add complex rhythmic variations to an audio track.
