Video: Exploring New Moog, Arturia, and Eventide Synths with Redstripedown

2018 is gearing up to be another solid year for synthesists, with lots of exciting new releases starting to hit the streets. After digging into what's new in the modular space, we invited Cory Sterling (aka redstripedown) to Reverb to see what he could do with three new pieces of gear specifically: the Moog DFAM, Arturia Minibrute 2S, and Eventide EuroDDL.

The Moog DFAM is the first addition to Moog's Mother synth ecosystem, with a hands-on design (no patching) that players of all ages can intuitively start working with right away. It features a white noise generator, two wide-range analog oscillators, and a Moog Ladder filter with two selectable modes: low-pass for impact and dimension or high-pass for strikes and accents.

The Minibrute 2S is Arturia's most recent installment in the product series and manages to maintain the sound-shaping power that's made the line a steadfast fan favorite while also expanding and evolving the features list. The 2S combines analog synthesis with intuitive step-sequencing by way of its multi-pattern, triple-layer, 64-step sequencer. The 2S also features an expanded patchbay, making it an easy centerpiece for your Eurorack ecosystem.

The Eventide EuroDDL is, as the shortened name suggests, a digital delay for your Eurorack ecosystem. Designed with performers in mind, the EuroDDL features external controls for all of its features and functions and only features the amount of digital circuitry necessary for delay—its low-pass filter, feedback, insert loop, +20 dB boost, and soft saturation clipping are all entirely analog.

Be sure to check out the full video above to see what kinds of sounds redstripedown was able to make using these brand new pieces of gear, and click any of the products above to pick up your own right now on Reverb.
