The River by Baloran - New Videos, Availability and Price


The River by Baloran (sounds only) Published on Jun 5, 2017 coyotesynth

Two new videos of The River by Baloran spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child who stated the following: "Apparently a price of 5000 Euros with preorders starting in the next couple of months, with production units shipping within 9 months of that, starting with France and local countries first." The price might seem high, but according to the specs posted here, this an eight voice poly synth with VCO's based on Moog's The Source - a poly Source in essence. See the Baloran label for more.

Anyway in this jam I used the MPC only for hosting the piano sample library and not for sequencing/pressing play or other scary stuff :) Analog Four is doing arps, Octatrack used for playing the low region piano + arp, the beat and background strings, OP-1 playing lo-fi piano. Hope you like it ;) Cheers!"

Moog RME preset thrashing bass line and a beat


Published on Jun 5, 2017 NomNomChomsky

"Preset thrashing is basically changing the preset very quickly on a synth, while it is playing a melody or bass.

An idea I stole/copied from the wonderful Mr. Bill and his Ableton tutorials. http://mrbillstunes.com/

This is really nice on the Moog RME, because the external input knob, changes the preset (when external input is switched off).... and twisting the knob is fast! Also it is automatable from the akai #mpc1000

Poly Evolver Keyboard: Massive Pad


Published on Jun 4, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"This bit of music is only a sound demonstration. The Poly Evolver Keyboard is known for many things, but the massive pad is not one of them. The sound in this improvisation will hopefully improve the instrument's reputation for creating the sort of immensity that normally belongs to purely analog synthesizers.

The pad consists of two analog oscillators of pulse width modulation and two digital oscillators of sawtooth waves. The actual volume was never touched; the constant dynamic changes were created by changing either the low pass filter or the high pass. This was done either by the modulation wheel, an LFO, or a parameter. The pad itself has immense flexibility and can quickly move from being massive to almost inaudibly nasal. But throughout the entire piece, the high pass filter was set at least at "6" because, otherwise, the immensity of the lower end of the pad would be overwhelming.

The improvisation was played entirely on one Poly Evolver Keyboard/Rack combination, with bass parts added to the softer sections with the Hammond Pedalboard/Evolver Desktop combination.

By the way, I've only put away the Prophet '08 Keyboards and Modules for the time being, while I explore an all-Evolver sound. It's useful sometimes to focus entirely on only one instrument. But the P'08's will be back in the Music Room soon enough.

"This unit was recently serviced by the famous analog synth repair Guru John Leimseider (JL) of the Cantos Music Foundation in Calgary Alberta Canada. This is a six voice, VCO-based synthesizer (like the Matrix-12) as opposed to its DCO-based siblings the Matrix-6 and 1000. It is in great condition and sounds wonderful. Very fat and thick as you would expect from a true analog synthesizer. The best part of this unit however, is its flexibility when it comes to programming sounds. It is very similar to a modular synthesizer in that respect. Pretty much anything can modulate anything. This unit is American made in Los Angeles, California."

Snyderphonics MantaMate Eurorack Module Released


Published on Jun 5, 2017 Jeff Snyder

"Announcing the release of the Snyderphonics MantaMate, a Eurorack-format analog synthesizer module that connects the Manta controller (and many other things) to your analog modular synth.

The MantaMate has 12 analog control voltage outputs (4 are 16-bit high resolution and 8 are 12-bit medium resolution). It acts as a USB host for the Manta, allowing you to use the Manta as either a touch keyboard or as a powerful sequencer without the need for a computer. It also translates USB-MIDI controllers, such as keyboards and knob banks. Unusually, it can also convert certain game controllers and joysticks to analog voltages as well, so you can plug in a flight-simulator joystick and control your analog synth. It is also capable of connecting to your computer as a USB-MIDI device, allowing you to easily send control voltages from a DAW like ProTools or a music programming language like Max or Supercollider."

There will be videos forthcoming on gateway synths to lay the ground work; software alternatives to whet your appetite; and on to choosing the right case and power supply. And then it will develop into an opportunity to try out, compare and review various modules as I start to put my system together."

Delta Modular Force


Published on Jun 5, 2017 Trübüla

"A small experiment about how different instruments can interact each other in a modular synth's ecosystem.

The Delta Harp by Salvi Harps is connected via a contact mic to the synth using the Koma Field Kit. The voltage created by the envelope follower in the kit is quantized by the CopierMaschine program of the awesome mxmxmxm's Ornaments & Crime. 3 of the 4 CV OUT piloting the Sputinik Dual Oscillator and the Make Noise STO.

The Delta Harp is plugged directly in the audio card.

Delays and Reverbs by D16 Repeater & Eventide Black Hole.

So ... Delta and Synth are played by Vanja Contu - Sounds and Synth are disturbed by me.

DreamsOfWires - Korg Arp Odyssey 'Mk1 Whiteface'


Published on Jun 5, 2017 DreamsOfWires

"Korg Arp Odyssey - Just a temporary visitor, but I'll try to make a couple of videos with it. I previewed a short, preliminary moment from it on Instagram, so here's what it mutated into. (Original clip: https://instagram.com/p/BUvBUCilbWU/)
This is a multitracked recording, done in a pretty slap-dash manner, but all sounds are from the Odyssey, plus some reverb from Virsyn's AudioReverb and Kymatica's AUFX: Space within an iPad via an iConnectAUDIO4+. The main melody was sequenced then 'tweaked' in real-time, everything else was played manually - I like keeping it organic.
Video footage is of Harwich and Felixstowe (UK) last autumn, filmed with a Lumix GX7 and an iPhone 5.
Any gear/software I haven't mentioned is because I don't want to :P Please don't ask. I don't make instructional videos, I'm no expert on anything, it's mostly just for my own pleasure, and hopefully of some enjoyment to others."

"The extraterrestrials have contacted me through my new mobile workstation. Just a quick video of my latest setup. Note the professional patch cable holders on the right and the Ikea cardboard box Eurorack skiff with special edition packing tape covered edges.

Hope you enjoy it!
