ELECTRIC TONE Synthi Biscuit Tips Tutorial Review


Published on Oct 31, 2017 Robotopsy Robotopsy

"The Synthi Biscuit is a multi-fonction 16hp packaged module for the Eurorack system.
It offers 16 different algorythms in 3 similar sub-modules. A sub-module consists of 2
variable parameters, a gate input, an analog output, a display and a selection
button."

A new make on the site featured on Halloween!


via ELECTRIC TONE

"Designed to give a lot of fonctionalities into a small package(16HP). The Synthi Biscuit incorporates the usual needed fonctions (LFO, sample and hold, random noise, sequencer ect...) and more. It offers 10 different algorythms into 3 sub-units to sauce up your travel into the modular world. A sub-module consists of 2 parameters, a gate input, an analog output, a display and a selection button.

No magic trick, no special button combo. To access the different fonctions, click the algo button to browse through the algorythms. The parameters knobs allow changes in the fonctions you're using, they have different roles depending on the mode (speed lfo, gate time, random factor ect...).

synthi-biscuit responds to all Eurorack criterias on power supply(12V/0V/-12V), power connector (2X8), and signal levels."

Introducing iOptigan! An Optigan for your iPad / iPhone In Collaboration with Stefan Stenzel of Waldorf


Published on Oct 31, 2017 optigandotcom

"In collaboration with Stefan Stenzel of Waldorf, we’re proud to announce iOptigan! It’s an Optigan on your iPad or iPhone, complete with all 40 original discs (25 included with app purchase, an additional 15 via in-app purchase) and all the scratchy lo-fi character and playability quirks of the original. What we didn’t include is all the headaches that tend to go along with the flaky old hardware!

As shown in the video above, you can setup iOptigan with a MIDI keyboard to approximate the playing experience of a real Optigan (chord buttons on the iPad, keys on the keyboard), but there are also additional ways to control iOptigan via MIDI as well as on screen. iOptigan faithfully emulates the unique playback characteristics of the Optigan, ie the “constant loop” of both the chord section and the keyboard. You also get tempo, reverb and balance controls that also behave as the original hardware."


iTunes: iOptigan - Stefan Stenzel

"This is the Optigan for iOS.

The Optigan, short for Optical Organ, was a chord organ from the early 1970’s. It is remembered today for its unique system of sound reproduction using optical discs. These LP-sized film discs were optically encoded with 57 concentric tracks, which contained loops of musical combos playing chord patterns in different styles. Each disc contained a specific style of music (Bossa Nova, Big Band etc) which the user could control by pressing the chord buttons. Changing the discs was as simple as putting a new record on your turntable. Think of it as the 1971 version of GarageBand.

Despite this novel technology, the scratchy sound of the Optigan left a lot to be desired.

The iOptigan we present here truthfully recreates that lo-fi sound.

25 of the original 40 discs are included, the remaining 15 can be purchased individually or all together in the Complete Pak.

Specifications and Features:
• Disc loading rigth-side-up or upside-down
• Spring Reverb (virtual)
• Optical Metronome
• Audio Demo for each Disc
• MIDI in/out
• MIDI chord detection
• MIDI File Import
• Sequencer with Record and Playback
• Sharing for songs as Audio and MIDI File
• iTunes File Sharing
• Inter-App Audio
• Smart background audio
• Help overlay
• Headphone optimised stereo (optional)
• Radio Mode for Chord Buttons or Keyboard
• Comfortable speed control in semitones or BPM"

Batchas - Remember


Published on Oct 31, 2017 batchas


"It’s been a long time since I wanted again a MIDI-to-CV converter. Got it today, added to it bananas and made an impro on the Serge Paperface.
One take. Direct stereo outs and then reverb added in Logic.

The patch can be seen here: [left]

The played notes we hear come from 2 oscillators: the NTO (variable output) goes to the Variable Bandwidth Filter (VCF2), the PCO (sine output) goes to the Wave Multipliers.

VCF2 and Wave Multipliers give this string touch to the sound.

[u]Outputs on the MIDI-to-CV interface[/u]:
GATE goes to ADSR - ADSR OUT goes into VCAs.
CV goes to 1V/oct input on both oscillators.
Pitch Bend goes to VC F on both oscillators.
Velocity goes to VC F on Variable Bandwidth VCF.

I love these moments, when the instrument is simultaneously translating in sound my feelings and what is happening in my mind. Like remembering an early existence…"

OBERHEIM MATRIX 12 CLASSIC, LEGENDARY MASSIVE ANALOG BEAST!


via this auction

"You know what this is... This is the most advanced, most elegant sounding Oberheim of them all.. The Matrix 12. Essentially TWO Xpanders with a fantastic keybed and such an amazing piece of eye candy. She purrs... she growls and so much more. Once you play it, you'll instantly recognize all those instant classic 80s sounds. Not many synth freaks have one.. most have never played one. This synth is not for the faint of heart. It delivers in every way.

This is the better Made in USA version, not the overseas inferior version. It was fully overhauled by a veteran analog synth tech. Recapped, tuned, new bushings, new battery, calibrated and tested over and over again to ensure years of usage to come. It sounds amazing, and it works as it should.. NO operational errors here. Plus as you can see from the pics.. it looks fantastic as well.

NOTE>>> This has the 12 output panel installed on the right side. It was installed at Oberheim way back in the day but the original owner opted to not have internal circuits installed for the 12 outs.. not sure why. You still obviously get the Left, Right and Mono outs working and sounding GREAT!.."

DIY Synth Jam #1 - SQK01 Arduino FM synth and Yamaha PSS-570


Published on Oct 31, 2017 DrummingEvil

"I was hacking together a little setup next to my desk, to see if something like it would be comfortable for synth recordings. Figured I might as well record a little improvisation :D

I used my SQK-01 prototype FM synthesizer and the Yamaha PSS-570, each routed through a Digitech RP80 FX pedal. I wanted to solely use my own creations, however the green synth (Dradique) you see isn't finished yet and both of my synths don't have any sequencing or rhythm sections yet. So I opted for the Yamaha to lay down the basic beat and sequencing."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #42: Red Sound Darkstar XP2 - Song 1


Published on Oct 31, 2017 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the Red Sound Darkstar XP2. It's a table-top 8-voice polyphonic, 5-part multitimbral virtual analog synthesizer.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
Darkstar XP2 - Sony DPS-V55M - DigiTech Obscura- DigiTech Polara. The used fx varied depending on the recorded track.

The signal goes via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc.

To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with just a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Analog Four MKII - The New Sound [JAM]


Published on Oct 31, 2017 cuckoomusic

"Elektron has refined the signal chain in the new Analog Four MKII to achieve a more mature sound, and a also brand new overdrive. This might seem like a small adjustment at first, but after working with it for a while I feel like it is much more than that. The sonic palette has broadened, all of the sounds have a more solid presence. Especially in the low end. Even the sounds that sound "exactly the same" as on the MKI do in fact benefit from the refined signal chain. I like what I hear.

Here's a jam with several of the sounds used actually not really possible to fully reproduce on the MKI."

"I've swapped the DSI Pro2 for the Novation Peak. Really loving the sound of it, but barely scratching the surface so far. Also added the push to the mix, to be able to play the peak. The idea is to jam the peak on the push, and then later let the digitakt control it, but i've yet to reconnect everything with the midi thru box i recently got. Maybe for the next one ! Just wanted to get this out the door, enjoy !"

Todd Barton Performance at Wayward Music 10/28/2017


Published on Oct 30, 2017 matrixsynth

You should all be familiar with Todd Barton over the years here on MATRIXSYNTH.

[Note: Todd has an upcoming performance coming up on Monday, November 13 at the Conservatory of Music at UOP, Stockton, California. That event will feature electronic instruments designed and built by Rob Hordijk. If you are in the area, you do not want to miss it.]

The above is the full performance by Todd Barton on the BEMI Buchla Music Easel at Wayward Music, announced here. Note the performance was in quad (four channels of spatial audio around the room), however, I was only able to capture it on my iPhone 6s, so unfortunately the quality is limited here. This video is meant more for historical purposes, but do enjoy it. It was an amazing performance.

You can find Todd Barton's website at http://toddbarton.com.

The following bio is from the Wayward Music event page http://www.waywardmusic.org/event/tod...

"Todd Barton is a composer, sound designer, multimedia performer, and analog synthesist specializing in Buchla, Serge and Hordijk modular systems. After four decades of exploration Barton is still delving deeply into the ever-expanding frontiers of musical expression: from his DNA derived Genome Music to his innovative scores for plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; from performances of Zen shakuhachi meditation music to avant-garde music for electronic synthesizers and computers; from performing with luminaries of jazz and poetry to lecturing on music and composition from the Middle Ages to the 21st Century. He gives Skype lessons and consultations in analog synthesis worldwide and is currently a trainer for MacProVideo.com. Todd is fascinated and obsessed with exploring sound and its infinite manifestations. This performance will be a live improvisation which “Follows the Sound” of a Buchla Music Easel.

Presented by Nonsequitur."

"Jason E Anderson is an artist from Seattle whose work includes performance, recorded works, video, installation, and music for dance. He creates sound using synthesis, acoustic recordings, programming and text. His work emerges from the traditions of experimental music and sound art. Anderson performs and records music under his own name, as Spare Death Icon, as LIMITS with Corrie Befort, and as a member of network computer music collective Mesh Collaborative . He is an active performer, and organizer/producer of performance events in the Pacific Northwest, and he publishes the recorded work of his contemporaries on his experimental music record labels Gift Tapes and DRAFT. Jason’s performance will employ the use of a computer running supercollider to generate events and sequences as control voltages that are sent to an analog synthesizer.

Quick demo of 2x PreenFM & 1x Ambika with 6 SMR4 voice cards. HQ Sound


Published on Oct 30, 2017 Todd Murray

"This is a nothing planned, adhoc session just to demonstrate the sound quality of these two DIY synth projects. Both synths are open source code, and open hardware. You can still obtain prebuilt PreenFMs or you can DIY and build the entire synth from scratch.

The Ambika is not longer made by Mutable Instruments. It too is Open source and open hardware, and there are some sources who still build them or you can DIY

In both cases you can build these synths yourself by downloading all of the CAD files for the circuit boards and case, sourcing their build, then source the components and assemble the circuits.... then download the software and install it.

If you want to build these yourself, and have experience you should have little issues as both are fairly straight forward and the build doc quite clear. The PreenFM may be a particular challenge if you choose to DIY the MCU board. Soldering a STM32F405 takes practice and a steady hand. In both cases you will also need to upload the firmware to the processors.

Korg Gadget Coming to Nintendo Switch Next Year

"We don’t have a whole lot of information at present, but KORG Gadget is coming to Switch. It’s being advertised at the M3 event in Japan this weekend. Material at the show reveals the Switch title, along with a Spring 2018 launch window."

This isn't too much of a surprise considering KORG has ported their other synths apps to the Nintendo DS line of gaming devices. Still cool to see though.

"Inspired by the Hi-hats section of the famous Roland TR-606 Drum machine.

The sweep knob lets you adjust the graininess as well as the filtering of the over all sound.

Sweep can also be controlled via the 0 to 5V CV input.

Control over the velocity of the closed hat can be achieved via the 0 to 5V (CH Vel) input.

Lots of harsh Hi-hat goodness in one small 6HP module.

Trigger indicator LEDs for both the open and closed hats.

Controls for the decay time of the open and closed hats.

8V Peak to average output level.

"On the 18th November I'll be performing live at Further, an event dreamed up by DJ Food and Pete Williams. Every surface of the venue (Portico Gallery, London) will be covered in visuals as Sculpture (live tape loops and Zeotrope visuals) myself (live Buchla & Ciat Lombarde Cocoquantus) and DJ Food and Pete Williams conjure up strange textures, melodies and sound designs.

I'm sharing some footage of my preparation for the show and this is a little clip of one patch I'm working on. I don't do a lot of videos so please forgive the fact that most of the action takes place out of shot! What you can't see is the Ciat Lombarde Cocoquantus Looper/magic box, which I'm feeding from a Korg Monotron. The Buchla is providing the constantly shifting rhythmic elements.

Date : Saturday 18th November

Time: 7:30pm- midnight

"Mutant Modular #4 is from long-time Montreal techno luminary Jean-Patrice Remillard, AKA Pheek. Jean-Patrice has been exploring electronic music since the early 1990s and has been a key player in Montreal’s minimal scene from its very inception. From his early work with Mateo Murphy (Mutant Modular mm002) on Montreal-based label Hautec recordings, to releases on Richie Hawtin's M_nus imprint, France's Telegraph, Denmark's Tic Tac Toe and Germany's Contexterrior, Pheek has developed an unmistakable sound – textural and spatial with a cerebral, experimental soul, and at least one foot always on the dance floor."

Smokey Quartz - Wretch Jam #10


Published on Oct 30, 2017 Smokey Quartz

"I haven't posted a 100% Metasonix Wretch Jam in over 3 years so I decided to fire up that cantankerous monster for some improvised noise. Pulse wave and gate signals are being fed to the Wretch from the Knas Ekdahl Polygamist Synthesizer. The Polygamist is just out of frame and can't be heard but is acting as a dominatrix to the submissive Wretch, telling it what to do and running the show. Also, vacuum tube spring reverb is coming from the Metasonix R-56 module."

BURG - severance (digitakt, analog four, modular, KORG ms-20, volca, blofeld)


Published on Oct 30, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on http://music.ollilab.com/ and https://www.patreon.com/theBURG

This is my first proper recorded jam using the Elektron digitakt. It is handling kickdrum, snare, reverse hh and the LOW bass + also sequencing the waldorf blofeld over MIDI.

Also introducing the Noise Engineering BIA, doing some percussion sequenced by the BSP.

This track was a bit of a struggle, trying to get so many new elements into place.. especially the digitakt, so I decided to take it slow and just do some minor things, and it feels like it went well.

The modular has a pretty complex patch, braids does the intro melody (FOLD), rings does some heavily modulated melodies, BIA does percussion and the morphagene does an extremely chopped up vocal sample + string pattern (layered) as a percussive thingy.... patched it through VCA, + maths controlling CV, and sequenced by the BSP .. good fun. :)

ms-20 does a one VCO lead sound + the el capistan delay, analog four adds some percussive sequencing, stabs + that it sequences the 0 coast over CV.

nord lead A1, stacked strings using the swell pedal to pull in some subtle fifths strings, VCF modulated by internal LFO's for some movements.

volca bass and keys, well, they do their stuff :)

Gear used: ms-20 mini, volca bass, keys, elektron digitakt, analog four, roland tr-8, yamaha reface CP, nord lead A1, waldorf blofeld, makenoise 0-coast

Modular rack: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/v...

FX, ms-70 CDR on volca keys and bass, el capistan on ms-20, bluesky, particle and CSIDMAN on reface, timeline and eventide on blofeld, EQD transmisser, space spiral, keeley caverns, RE_20 on modular.

hope you will enjoy it!

Korg MS-20M Monophonic Analog Synthesizer Desktop Module


via this auction

"This is a built kit of the Korg MS-20M monophonic synthesizer module. It is in virtually perfect playing and physical condition and includes the original patch cables, manuals and box. Does NOT include a SQ-10 sequencer.

This version is a module-only version of the original keyboard synthesizer made from 1978 to 1983. It is the same circuitry as the original with several important improvements.
- SYNC ON/OFF switch allows oscillator sync
- FM ON/OFF switch allows frequency modulation
- FILTER TYPE switch selects two filter types
- PWM IN jack allows pulse width modulation
- EG2 NORMAL OUT expands your sonic possibilities
- TRIG SW button is a convenient way to audition the sound
- Supports all CV/GATE specifications: Hz/V and V/Oct, S-Trig and V-Trig
- Three JUNCTION jacks
- MIDI IN connector and USB MIDI connector

The original MS-20 used two different VCF circuits depending on the date of production, and now you can choose either of these with a single switch. The earlier model (REV.1) has an aggressive character with distinctive distortion and self-oscillation, while the later model (REV.2) has minimal noise and a sweet, mellow sound."

"A version of the Halloween theme done using sounds and effects native to the OP-1. No user samples or external post processing what-so-ever. The stereo mix-down was dragged right from the OP-1 into Final Cut to make the video. This is a little one night ditty. Believe it or not the part of the song I was most stressed about getting right is the "click" that runs throughout, hence it was the thing I tackled first (turned out to be pretty easy with Hortax rim shot and the finger sequencer). Everything else is pretty self explanatory in the video. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!"

Folktek Resonant Garden


Published on Oct 29, 2017 Sir Folktek

"The Folktek Resonant Garden is an acoustic-electronic hybrid instrument. See/read more on Folktek.com
In these first videos, the cv functions are never used and there is no external processing. Videos to come will cover the use of cv as well."


via Folktek

"The Resonant Garden is an acoustic-electronic hybrid designed to create anything from beats and oddities to dense sound scapes. From its inception in 2006, the original garden has gone through many changes and refinements; micro garden, luminist garden and illuminist garden and finally this latest and likely final version.

The garden essentially utilizes three Alter circuits but each equipped with a mic pre-amp, and 4 garden (stringed) panels for generating acoustics. By plucking, rubbing, tapping or even bowing, those micro-acoustic sounds become amplified and effected by the Alter in any number of ways. In essence, the garden is a large microphone designed to pick up vibrations."

EFFECTS
There are two Alter 1 designs and 1 Alter 2. Each Alter 1 has seven different DSP effects which is selected by touching the copper hexagon:

1; long delay (capable of near infinite feedback looping)

2; tight, notated granular delay

3; huge plate reverb

4; shimmering reverb

5; distortion and multi-filter

6; pitch delay

7; stutter glitch

Alter 2 has the following effects:

1; analog delay

2; reverb with infinite capture and lp + hp filters

3; choral reverb

4; palindrome reverse delay - backward/forward repeat

5; time stretch

6; pitch shift (notated semi-tones

7; time stretch glitch

CONTROL
On each of the Alter sections, the following is present:

- control for the gain of the mic pre-amp or any incoming audio.

- controls for mix, X, Y and filter as well as clock.

- all effects have a variation of a filter which may change effect to effect.

- X and Y control various rates.

- clock control adjusts the rate which controls the DSP which can drastically change the effect. In doing so it does slightly lower the quality of the output signal but the results are fantastic. This clock is not for synchronization.

- mix, X, Y and filter all have CV control inputs.

- Each control level or cv input is visualized on the control panel.

ACOUSTICS
Each garden panel is equipped with a contact mic. A contact mic is designed to pick up vibration. The mic pre-amp is specifically designed to deal with the frequencies of the contact mic by boosting certain frequencies and dulling others in order to optimize the sound quality. The mic pre-amp has a gain control so the level can be adjusted according to how you intend to play.

Scratch That Itch - MFB Dominion Club & Tanzmaus, MPC Live, Octatrack & Analog 4, KArp Odyssey


Published on Oct 29, 2017 Cave Way

"If your first question is: 'hey cave way, is that a white russian you are sipping on?' The answer is yes.... yes it is. There's a whole mess of gear strung up together in this track to create a symphony of bleepy-bloops. With that being said the showcase synth is definitely the Dominion Club. The patches float through sub osc, to digi osc, to rubber band osc, to over driven osc growls. It handles the patch change instructions from the MPC live without a hitch. Hopefully this scratches the itch for some of you waiting on your Club."

STRANGER THINGS - Theme and individual sounds


Published on Oct 29, 2017 Introvertmusic

"I love Stranger Things so by request and by my own excitement I did a cover of the main theme.

All of the synths are being played/sequenced my 2 Elektron Octatracks (MK1 versions). The main arpeggio and bass is from an Elektron Analog Four MK1. The pads/swells are from an Access Virus TI MK1. The Drums are from an Elektron Machinedrum UW MK2. The chords are from a Tubbutec midi upgraded Roland Juno-60 (They call it a Juno-66). The vocal ambience is from an Elektron Analog RYTM MK1.

The visuals were generated by running the original intro into several machines by BPMC then captured in my Korg Kaptivator.
