New Vector synthesis module from RYK Modular

Post by 1kip »

RYK Modular is teasing its new module on IG and it sounds absolutely fantastic!

Wow so is this a ROMpler like the Wavestation? I've been wondering when someone was going to make one in eurorack.

I thought that until I watched the Instagram post where it kinda sounds like it’s using that joystick to morph the wave shape, kinda attitive-y but who knows. I’d be much more excited for a romper style vector thing.

It’s got ABCD on it, so I’m assuming it’s more or less like the “Vector Synthesis” people would expect. But maybe there’s more to it than that.

I wished they’d given it an LCD. But they never asked for my opinion!
Lotsa modules for sale/trade- check it out!

Yea, but I did just notice the IG tags start with a bunch that say 'Harmonic Synthesis' etc, then after that, the vector synthesis tags start appearing. In addition to the sines/saw label on the module.

It makes a lot of sense to build vector synthesis on an additive base of some kind; once you have the main oscillator bank, interpolating coefficients between different corners will be relatively cheap and doesn't require any additional generators.

Sounds great, and I like the display. Doing interesting things in eurorack and system 100m at the same time!

I love it already. Are those knobs or buttons on the top of the module?

This sounds wicked! Bring on the vector. Also, RYK modules look really good. Nice design work.

Here is a short compilation of some sound demos from our new module



All recorded dry straight from the module, using only internal LFO and ENV modulations.
CV and Gate from M185, last clip played direct from MIDI keyboard, no other modules used

Sounds great. Does this have internal envelope and polyphonic abilities? Sounds like it from the demo at some points.

Thanks !

Yes it has 2 x ADSR Envelopes [ 8 in polyphonic mode], and 2 x LFO, with internal VCA
Some of the clips are using the polyphonic mode [ 4 voices of 4 oscillators ] which are mostly
triggered from Mono CV/Gate, letting the notes hang and overlap rather than cutting out.

ryk,

Since this is additive in nature, can the oscillator get sounds similar to what Gabor Lazar/Mark Fell/Errorsmith do with Native Instruments Razor and Lazerbass instruments? I’ve been getting a little success with Xaoc’s Odessa, but would like to see another osc capable of, I guess, more inharmonic and ‘swarm-y’ additive sounds. Some examples:

Hi

The Vector Wave module oscillators can be setup to any frequency spread you like.
So can be set to even/odd spreads like the Odessa or 4ms EO, or tuned to any kind of non-harmonic relationship.
There is also Detune modultion destination for each bank, which can be used to create swarmy cluster sounds,
on the sound demo there is a basic example of this around 24sec.
The Detune function is linear, so the audio "beating' does not increase with pitch,

Not sure how the sounds were created on the Gabor link, but sounds a bit like sweeps across harmonic spectrum.
On our module there are Window or Low Pass 'filters' on each bank, that can be modulated to scan across the harmonic spectrum which might be similar to what they are doing in your clip.
But please be aware these are not VCFs, they operate on oscillators when setup as individual harmonics.

Alternatively the oscillators can be setup as FM groups of modulators and carriers, or anywhere between . . .

Thanks for the info. Definitely looking forward to hearing more about this module.

Most of those sounds from Gabor Lazar use a couple of instruments from Native Instruments Reaktor, mainly Razor and Lazerbass.

This is the Xaoc Odessa getting into similar territories as well. You can hear how the right side of the module handles "filtering" which is achieved with manipulating the spectrum, not an actual comb filter (from around 6 minutes in):
