Hi everyone,

I wanted to share my first eurorack video and try to bring all my talk of video stuff into one thread for comments, new videos etc. I've been on about videos for a while and this one has taken ages, with various problems blah blah blah. So ... the first video is a module overview of the Strakal Brulu Fuzz. Check it out below.

[video][/video]

Here's the link just in case it doesn't come up -


All comments and thoughts are welcome. I'll be mentioning new ideas and what's to come here and using this thread as a base for it all. Next videos will be on the AniModule SOB filter and TrAnimodule utility and speaker.

Finally, I'll welcome you all to subscribe to the YouTube page -
http://www.youtube.com/divkidvideo

I'll be keeping things in a modular video playlist if you do want to avoid music and other vids. -

Good vid and a nice module to boot, look forward to seeing some more, clear and informative also showed capabilities and character of the module nicely.

maybe im mad but I liked the drunk vco vibes also :guinness:

i have been looking at Braids as a possible addition to my system so if you get round to a vid about it that would be cool.

Great.... really enjoyed that, although it focused on a module I'll likely never buy, it was cool hearing how your other modules were affecting the patch. I'd like to see something on your Braids... in particular the 'pluck' section. I'm always looking for new ideas on how to improve my plucking technique.

Thanks everyone, appreciate the comments. Glad it's going down well.

Dcramer - Tempted by the other red thing :) haiku-ish band pass and distortion module that looks ace.

Figures - I haven't had the drunk VCO vibe since, or before that video actually. Don't know how I'd replicate it, screwing with the 1v/oct (not that I'd want to, I didn't like the drunk VCO). Braids could probably do it with it's drift and flat modes though. I've been thinking of Braids for ages, there's a few "mode demo" type videos (I'll probably add to that) but I've been thinking of maybe doing them as shorter videos looking at specific things. Or I'll film them that way and then add them all together. What do you reckon?

escmode - the module is great, so if a fuzz is for you I can highly recommend it, if not glad you liked watching anyway. I'm going to try and keep other videos similar when looking at a single module (as opposed to general ideas etc) demonstrating how it's part of a bigger picture and what roles it can play. Plus with 1 in, 1 out and 1 knob I couldn't do much of a feature overview haha. I'll definitely have something on Braids, see what I said about. I could do a shorter video just on the pluck. Do you reckon smaller more specific videos or a general overview that's longer? Maybe the odd shorter one (people love the pluck, maybe show off it's wavetables and internal envelope features) and then do a full video? To do it well I'll have to do a lot of planning anyway, so hit me with ideas. :tu:

I'm in the process of getting together my second video which is for the Animodule revised SOB filter (it's ace btw).

I have so much footage (as this thing does so much) all shot with an open "show everything" sort of approach. You see me setting up patches and talking through what I'm plugging in. The only problem with that is the length. I have a part 1 which is a module overview, nearly 20 minutes long going over everything. Then a part 2 which is patch ideas at 18 minutes long.

Would you all prefer to see them both like that? You don't see me plug everything in and set up every sequence, but you see things set up and get to see the changes in the patches as I do them.

I cut probably cut all this in half and just make one video. I'd have to re-record the voice over (which is fine) but I'd be cutting out a lot of the set up. Going for more of a "Here's this set up and it does this", rather than the longer approach "if I take an envelope from module X and mix that in you get this" which leads you through the changes more.

I sort of like the longer open videos, but this could heavily restrict views and 2 almost 20 minutes videos is loads.

So what do you reckon? Just be brutal and cut it down heavily to one video?

I'd really appreciate your input.

What about doing both, 2 full videos and then one compressed version? This way if anybody needs more explanation they can watch the extended versions.

Agreed....You'll have some want longer and others want shorter. This way everyone is happy. :guinness:

a scanner darkly & Fleggy good call. Longer videos and a heavily condensed one. I'll finish the longs and have those online first then follow it with a short version.

Liking the vid, yorkshire represent!

I've found generally it's a good idea to cut wherever possible. Cut setups/gaps/unnecessary pauses - keep it moving. The best editing tip is "Cut all the boring bits". I've generally found it's a process of watching back and going 'something new needs to happen here, it's dragging!'.

But if the purpose is to show your patching process then you leave that in I suppose. I'd just cut any unnecessary gaps/dead air to keep it moving/engaging.

Cheers! stromcat glad you like it.

I've had 3 people watch the video all of which have said length is good as is the openness and pace throughout. Two almost 20 minutes videos is obviously still really long so going to go with the suggestions of a compressed much shorter version and the long ones. I'll be re-recording a voice over this week and finishing a few short edits and hopefully have it online before the end of the week. Then I'll edit it super chopped up and much much shorter. Probably no voice over just subtitles. Bit harder with the SOB to get it short as there is honestly so much to go at with it.

I'm happy getting brutal with it though, that's my usual approach to sound design / sample work and composition / production type stuff too, cut out all the "dead air" as it were :)

Had a fair few problems with computers and software while working on the SOB filter overview video. That's still coming (hopefully this coming week). But with the problems I've been trying out a few things on a friends machine which led to me rendering out this video I've had for a while now which is an overview of the wavetable processing in the WMD Geiger Counter.

So here it is ....

[video][/video]



SOB filter overview will be next, then coming up will the Animodule TrAnimodule and RYO Optodist. Lots of other ideas as always and not enough time. [/video]

Little :bump: to say the next module overview is finished and will be uploading and coming to you tonight. It's the Animodule SOB state variable filter and wavefolder which is capable of loads! :party:
