Lyra-8 Simpler Organismic Textures with Percussive Oberheim SEM Pro and Sequencing Semblance


Published on Oct 13, 2017 martinjazz78

"Good speakers or headphones are highly recommended. These synths sound so beautifully and deserve appropriate listening device.

Another excerpt from my dawless synth jam with amazing yet for me still not easily controllable Lyra-8 by SOMA synths from Russia. In this part, I was producing textures (quasi harmonies) on Lyra-8 and again was pleasantly surprised by sheer beauty and inspirativness of everything coming out Lyra, although many of these sounds weren't intended and even expected to happen.

Percussive sequence on the background is modern reissue of classic Tom Oberheim's SEM Pro controlled by Cirklon hardware sequencer. Cirklon also controls Semblance by Analogue Solutions, which is in fact a clone of the Oberheim's SEM, but it sounds completely different. Both synths are processed through the vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay and Strymon Big Sky for reverb.

Additionally you hear Taurus III Bass Pedals by Moog Music (from about middle of the video) giving some long sustained bass tones (again controlled by Cirklon). Last but not least, you hear Ken Macbeth's Elements Synthesizer creating very organically sounding atmospheric ambience.

Enjoy ;)"

VINTAGE AKAI X7000 12-BIT SAMPLING KEYBOARD & SYNTHESIZER


via this auction

"The X7000 was Akai's first major Sampler Keyboard instrument similar in style and format to the E-mu Emax, Ensoniq Mirage, EPS and Roland S-10 sampling keyboards. The X7000 has about the same sampling features as the rack-mount S-900, which were great in 1986. Variable 12-bit sampling up to 40kHz, 128K RAM for storing only a few seconds worth of samples and a complete suite of basic sample editing functions including looping, auto-looping, truncating, multi-sampling and re-sampling capabilities, tuning and so on. It even features a few dedicated parameter buttons above the keyboard for quick access to the LFO and other modulations.

This sampler sounds pretty good. It's got a lo-fi edge due to the fact that it's only a 12-bit rather than 16-, 20- or 24-bit sampler. The slow 2.8" built-in disk drive is not exactly compatible with much. But you can use it to store your samples or load samples from libraries for Akai's S-612, S-700 and X7000. Editing samples is straight forward and makes this synth a great entry-level sampler. However, the LCD display is small so editing can be tedious. It also features a cool analog-like filter with cutoff. But for enhanced analog-like editing, the X7000 can be hooked up to the AX73, AX60and VX90 synthesizers via the DD-X5013 Voice Cable so you can run the X7000's samples through these synth's analog circuitry."

"Eli from Mystic Circuits brings is a little package of awesomeness with his new 0HP passive in line accessories for euro rack modular synths. In this video I have the 0HP Vactrol LPG (low pass gate) which sings beautifully, has a little clipping with higher/longer CV and also a mix input for passing through unaffected audio to mix with the LPG output. But as this is passive the LPG out and mix in pass through get all compressed smushed up together. What a great use of 0HP! :)"

New Eventide H9000 to Support Max/MSP Patches?



Soviet Space Child sent in news of the new Eventide H9000 effects processor.

There's a rumor that it will support Max/MSP patches. Whether that means integration with an external computer running Max/MSP, or actually hosting them natively, we will have to wait and see.

via Eventide does hint at it up front:

"Hello! My name is Jack Impink. I am an electronic musician by trade, working with both gear and software. I like to use older equipment alongside programs like Max/MSP to see what kind of odd sounds will be produced. I’ve been working in the Eventide Labs beta testing the H9000, and I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been finding so far.

First and foremost, the big news: Eventide will be unveiling the H9000 at the 143rd AES Convention on October 18th, 2017! You may have seen some footage of the unit from a certain promotional video already, but in this blog we’ll be going a little deeper. Tune in to see what features we’re working on and any hidden gems that I discover along the way.

Eurorack Modular Videos by rustyjaw


Dusk Published on Jun 12, 2017

Two videos recommended and sent my way via John L Rice. The second is further below.

"A simple ambient jam for the summer.

Some quick patch notes:

First (plucked string) voice:
Rings and STO sequenced by Copper Traces Seek

Bassline and "lead":
Pittsburgh Modular Synth Box (bassline) and Industrial Music Electronics Piston Honda MkII (slow lead) both sequenced by Stillson Hammer Mk II

Background melodies:
Synthesis Tehcnology E330 - sequenced by Stillson Hammer Mk II
Intellijel Dixie II (and multed copy of Dixie II melody recorded into Morphagene) sequenced by Make Noise Rene (Rene X input from Zularic Repetitor)

Fiters:
Three Sisters - plucked string voice and background melodies
AJH MiniMod VCF - bassline
AJH Sonic XV - lead

Effects:
Mutable Instruments Clouds x2 (looping delay mode on both)
Make Noise Erbe Verb (plucked strings sound, and background melodies)
Make Noise Echophon - background melodies
Dual Looping Delay (plucked strings)
Zvex Instant Lo-fi Junky (lead)"


Colloidal Flow

Published on Sep 3, 2017

"A reworking of the last patch I posted. This is a significantly different take, focusing on the ambient and drone with the sequenced parts blended in more.

PADS:
VCOs: E330 Multimode VCO (in Wavetable mode) into Clouds looping delay

PADS 2:
Direct outs from STO (sine) and Dixie II into clouds reverb

PLUCKY SYNTHS:
VCOs: STO and Dixie II
Sequencer: Turing Machine into uScale II, uScale A and B outs going to each VCO
Envelopes: Quadra
Envelope Triggers: Zularic Repetitor
Delay: Dual Looping Delay

16th NOTE SEQ:
VCO: Piston Honda MkII
Sequencer: Stillson Hammer Mk II
Filter: MiniMod VCF
Envelope (VCA and filter): Quadra

Variations in the bassline are from the Assignable A and B inputs on the SHMkII, they are being fed random S&H from the Ultra Random Analog, a multed copy of the S&H feeds into the shift input on the uScale, so both sets of sequences change at the same time.

KICK:
VCO: the sub bass out from STO into Pittsburgh Synth Box LPG in, triggered by output 4 from Zularic Repetitor"

Inventive Pocket Operator Case - iPhone 3G Cases


Thought this was pretty cool.

via MATRIXSYNTH reader, Jeremy:

"I had a cool idea to use an old iPhone G3 case I had lying around for my Pocket Operator. Turns out they are almost the same size as the old iPhone. It worked so well I bought new ones to use. All you need to do is put the PO in the case upside down and cut some holes for your audio jacks."

Upside down for the hanger to fit through the charging gap in the case as you can see in the pics. Simple, affordable, and smart solution. Think of of the case styles out there to customize it as well.

modular shades #14 | pantone 437 | random ambient modular music


Published on Oct 13, 2017 Elinch

"in the center are 3 random granular sequences (internal random lfo controls starting points) of the orthogonal devices er-301 (starting material: 30 seconds loop, mutable instruments rings randomly sequenced by the disting mk4).

at the beginning, a ring modulation (intellijel dixie 2 / make noise sto) is alternately heard with a sound sequence of the make noise morphagene. both go through the zvex instant lo-fi junky in the tape delay of the disting mk4.
the noisy sounds comes from the dreadbox gamma and go into the 4ms dld. volume is controlled by batumi.

from 05:43
mutable instruments rings randomly sequenced from the malice voltage block and then goes into mutable instruments clouds. the bass comes from the dreadbox omikron. the drums-like sound is produced by dreadbox lamda in self-oscillation.

recorded live with tascam dr 100. no audio processing.
for the best listening experience listen to the video with headphones or good speakers."

OBERHEIM DPX-1 Vintage Synthesizer Sample Player SN 750645


via this auction

"In 1987 Oberheim released the DPX1, a 2-unit rackmount 'Sample Player' during the era of the classic samplers. Its function is to load 3.5" and 5" diskettes containing samples. These samples are loaded into its 1 MB of RAM from which you can play the samples using any MIDI keyboard, controller or sequencer. It was compatible with the E-mu Emulator II , Sequential Prophet 2000, 2002, 2002+ , Ensoniq Mirage DSK8/DMS8 and the Akai S900 formats. You can't edit any of the samples, the DPX1 is simply a load-n-play machine. Its universality among these early samplers makes it great for anyone who may still have old disks of samples but not the samplers that created them. With the DPX1 you can resurrect those samples and use them again, or resample them into a modern sampler. Sounds can also be re-stored in an Oberheim DPX format on to 3.5" disks. The DPX1 has a very impressionable architecture. That is, it recalls the nuances of you're samples including any processing, looping, filtering and modulations resulting in very accurate reproductions of the samples as they would have sounded through their original Sampler synths. However you can't edit, alter, re-program or create new samples. Ensoniq and E-mu samples come through sounding just like they're being played out of the original synths, if not better. However, the Sequential sounds are not quite as nice when played from the DPX1 and cannot be stacked as they may be in the Prophet. The DPX1 has limited potential, but if you have the samples (and not the Samplers) this is an economic way to recover and hear those classic samples again."

Next-level creative FX plugin
Mutate your sound like never before with Shed Loads Of Resonators

The Butterfly Effect

Transform the simplest sonic event into the huge, the complex, the seismic. SLOR’s brand new audio-reactive processing algorithms mutate and augment your sound like never before. Build out an entire track from a single beat by transforming it into bass, chords and percussive FX, turn background noise into a cinematic soundscape or live-process an acoustic instrument for a mind-bending performance.

Infinite resonators, infinite possibilities

SLOR’s swarm of ground-breaking infinite resonators take sonic manipulation into new territory, blurring the lines between FX processing and synthesis.

Infinite resonators use a special algorithm to control the feedback path to allow transformations which are both extreme and tightly controlled. This is what gives SLOR the power to add subtle atmospheres, bend beats into chords and melodies or set up autonomous compositions and morph continuously between all of these.

Deep sound design in no time

SLOR’s interface is incredibly straight-forward and tweakable for an effect with so much power. Explore ideas and make radical transformations quickly without menu-diving - and if you want to explore further there’s plenty of depth hidden in the ‘+’ pages just one click away from the front panel. Make big waves in your production using features such as live transient detection, envelope following, morphing, parametric polyphonic LFOs, polyphonic scale mapping, swarm pattern switching and much more.

System requirements

MacOS 10.10 onwards, Intel Core 2 Duo or higher
Windows 7, 8, 9 and 10, Intel Core 2 Duo/AMD Athlon 64 X2 or higher
Installation of Native Instruments Reaktor Player 6.2
SLOR is powered by Native Instruments’ Reaktor and is compatible with the FREE Reaktor Player"

"OFFWORLD DREAMING" Eurorack, Noise Reap Bermuda, MI Rings, Erica Synths Wavetable


Published on Oct 13, 2017 Lost For Words

"My Eurorack is growing - this week I received my Ornament & Crime and Noise Reap's Bermuda VCO. The Bermuda sounds incredible for an inexpensive module. I racked up both new modules to have a play and ended up with this patch. Whether the fact that I saw Blade Runner 2049 on Sunday had anything to do with the feel of this piece I can't say but I'm a big Vangelis fan. I hope you like this dreamy few minutes :)

Patch notes - recorded direct from the case, no external processing.

Yarns - providing arpeggiated clock only, no pitch, to the O&C in CopierMaschine app (F scale pentatonic major) going out to Bermuda VCO and Erica Synths Wavetable.

Bermuda (triangle wave) into DPLPG (first!) then filtered by Ripples which is being modulated by Peaks LFO. Envelope for DPLPG is other by other side of Peaks. A slight FM wobble from Maths. Into Pico DSP for mono delay.

Erica Synths Wavetable filtered by Polivoks with some modulation from Maths.

Maths is plucking Rings on the left hand End of Rise and slowly sweeping the Frequency, Position and Structure to create that lovely bell undulation.

XAOC Devices - Belgrad


Published on Oct 13, 2017 DivKidVideo

"XAOC Devices absolutely killing it with Belgrad. It's a unique approach to the dual filter concept with a great character that's highly influence by input level and the range of interactive controls. You can span the two filters but the sound always goes through both allowing you to create phase style sweeps on top of low passes or dual bands create formant style peaks and troughs. It also makes for a nice dual oscillator when self oscillating, takes to modulation like a trooper and is all round awesome. Go XAOC!

TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS

00:36 Overview
Sound, input level, span, cut off, resonance, balance, modes, audio and CV inputs, attenuators, XM cross modulation, SM self modulation (feedback).

03:07 filter types, sweeps and sounds
Double slope low pass, low pass + band pass, low pass with pass band notch, double notch, low pass + high pass, double band pass, band pass mode, high pass with pass band notch, band pass + high pass, double slope high pass.

10:08 sequence and nodulation
saw wave acid style sequence with a range of CV modulation added to all inputs.

15:32 Audio rate modulation
audio rate modulation of FM/cut off, resonance, balance and span. Vowels, formants and total awesomeness!

19:42 Tito Switch
XM and SM, cross modulation and self modulation. Added drive, character and grit.

22:24 Self oscillation / dual oscillator
Using the self oscillation with high resonance and dual filter core we can span and balance between two self oscillating resonance points for a dual oscillator style set of sines. With the Tito switch we can add cross or self modulation for more character and unique waveshapes and these sines also FM beautifully.

26:44 Modulation and mangling drums
Audio rate modulation, filter sequencing, looping envelopes and LFOs bend and twist a drum beat."

MIDI CLOCK JITTER // ABERRATION FROM DEFAULT VALUE


Published on Oct 13, 2017 LESINDES

"Here we test 15 hardware units - AKAI MPC LIVE amoung those - and how exact they are transmitting MIDI clock to the very sensitive ELEKTRON MACHINEDRUM at 120 bpm. And the overall stunning result is: The older the tighter! In the end the ashaming results of 2 representative professional DAWs: CUBASE 9.5 and PROTOOLS 12.5 on WIN 10.
The master tempos of two machines (MFB URZWERG, ARTURIA KEYSTEP) deviate a little from our 120 reference tempo because both machines have no own bpm counter.

MIDI is often blamed for being to slow to be really precise in terms of timing. And this also correct notes (to a certain exetent). But triggering of notes are not the main task of DAWs anymore. With a proper MIDI interface DAWs are quite in time. The problem is the MIDI clock since it is not generated by the DAW itself but by the hosting OS and this OS is giving a sh*t on our time requirements handling it with a very low priority. There hardware solutions to avoid the unreliable DAW/OS clock generating it from an audio signal."
