SYNTRX: Patch Notes

Audible patch examples & explanatory patch notes for the Erica Synths SYNTRX, created by Andris Indāns -also known as Gas Of Latvia.

Come back for a fresh dose of inspiration - patch notes will be updated twice a month!


CROSSROADS

Experimental paraphonic sound circuit in which OSC2 (second voice) modulates the frequency of OSC3 (first voice), while OSC3 modulates OSC2 in the ring modulator via S&H. The Ringmodulator signal with the second voice is connected to the first Output, but the Filter signal with the first voice to the Second Output. In parallel, the second voice passes through the Reverbator, which is connected to both outputs. The Filter frequency is modulated by Trapezoid and Sample&Hold. Reverb Mix level modulated by S&H and Envelope signal. Therefore, the GATE signal of the first voice also affects the second voice passing through the Reverberator. Decay level modulated by Trapezoid. The Joystick controls the OSC1 and Filter frequency.


CONTROLLED MADNESS

Extreme modulations patch for noisy live performances and sound effects. All oscillators are cross modulated, OSC2 & OSC3 ring-modulated. Sample&Hold modulates OSC1 , Filter frequency, Reverb Mix level and Output level of the second channel for stereo effect. Trapezoid also modulates Reverb Mix level and is used as a second modulation source in the Ring modulator. By controlling the OSC1 and OSC2 frequencies with a single Joystick manipulation, radical sound changes are possible.


CONTROLLED MADNESS 2

Another experimental patch with cross-modulated and ring-modulated oscillators. OSC1, OSC3 & Noise Generator are connected to a Filter, the signal of which is further distributed to the Envelope Generator (VCA), Reverberator and directly to the second Output. OSC2 & Noise Generator signals pass through Ringmodulator, modulated by OSC3 through the S&H and Trapezoid. Sample&Hold also modulates Decay level, OSC2, and Filter frequency. Trapezoid modulates Decay level, VCO3 and Filter frequency. The Joystick controls OSC1 frequency and Decay level.


PARARINGPHONIC

A more advanced Paraphonic sound circuit in which the second voice passes through the Ringmodulator and is modulated by the first voice (VCO3). Next, the Ringmodulator signal goes through the Reverberator to one Output, but the OSC1, OSC3, and Noise signals pass through the Envelope Generator and Filter to the other Output. Trapezoid and Sample&Hold modulate the Filter Frequency. The Joystick controls the Filter frequency and the Reverb Mix level.


SIMPLE PARAPHONY

A simple example of how to make SYNTRX sound two-voice using both CV inputs with different sequences. One voice (short notes) consists of VCO1, VCO3, and Noise Generator in a subtractive synthesis circuit through the Filter and Envelope Generator (VCA). Since SYNTRX is only one Gate, the other voice (long notes) are VCO2 directly connected to the reverberator. The Joystick controls the Filter frequency and decay of the Envelope Generator.
