Interactive Live Stream with Make Noise 0-Coast & Strymon Magneto

Started streaming 11 minutes ago Perfect Circuit

"Our modular setup is comprised of a Make Noise 0-Coast and Strymon Magneto with a couple of additional utilities. We're using node.js to send YouTube chat messages to a patch in Max 8, which uses the Expert Sleepers ES-8, ES-6, and ES-3 as a randomizable patch matrix. It sometimes sounds peaceful, sometimes bombastic, and often quite strange—feel free to chat to change the sound and see where it goes!"

Technos Acxel Additive Synthesizer Sequenced By Elektron Digitakt

Published on Dec 10, 2018 Perfect Circuit

"All of the sounds are coming from the rare and bizarre Technos Acxel additive synthesizer in multitimbral mode. Even the intro sound was resynthesized by the Acxel. We used an Elektron Digitakt as a sequencer to sequence six of the voices of the Acxel. The Acxel was designed in 1989 and was cutting edge technology at the time with its multiple voices which each have 32 additive "cells" and the ability to analyze four seconds of sound and resynthesize it.

Technos Acxel available here:

Digitakt availabl here:"

See the Technos label at the bottom of this post for more. Pics and info via Perfect Circuit:

"The Technos Acxel Resynthesizer is an additive synth developed in Quebec, Canada during the late 1980s. Its architecture is based on sine-wave oscillators that are each assigned amplitude and pitch envelopes to form the component harmonics of a sound.

The major innovation of the Acxel was, according to Technos, resynthesis. The idea is to sample a sound and extract its harmonic content using the Acxelizer. This information is then used to assign parameters, including envelopes, to the oscillators.

The Acxel comes in two pieces: the Solitary and the Grapher. The Solitary contains the main guts of the machine, including the main CPU board, the oscillator boards, the sampling board, the Acxelizer board, the floppy drive, and the I/O.

The Grapher is the machine’s user interface and is what Technos highlighted in its advertising. It’s a vacuum-fluorescent display for status information and menus and a surface of touch-sensitive nodules, 2114 of which contain LEDs.


256 ISC configuration, maximum 8-voice polyphony
Includes OS 1.099A and OS 1.12 disks
Includes copies of the original three Technos Sound Library disks
Includes Grapher to Solitary communication DIN cable
Includes flight case with casters for the Solitary"

Retroaktiv MPG-70 Random Tone Generator & Assign

Published on Dec 9, 2018 Retroaktiv Synthesizers

"In this video I'm using an MPG-70 to layer 3 randomly generated pads over, then I use the assignable controllers to animate the pad."

"MPG-70 is a 7U rackmountable/desktop controller for JX-10, JX-8P, and MKS-70 synthesizers. The MPG-70 features panel knobs and sliders to control all 44 original PG-800 parameters, plus all extra parameters added by the Vecoven firmware and PWM upgrades. (See for more info about the upgrade) The MPG-70 can control 2 JX synths at a time, and users can control each synth individually, or simultaneously.

2018/12 Oud Magic - a mellowncholic synthie tune

Published on Dec 10, 2018 Stereoping

"This started as a test for a midified Vermona ER-9 and ended in a complete melancholic, mellow song featuring a little, free, oriental VSTi plugin in simply love, called 'Oud'. As we all know an Oud is an ancient plucked instrument from the middle east.

Drums coming from a midified vintage Vermona ER-9 Drumbox. The theme, played by Ambika, is sent through an Ibanez UE405 guitar fx offering analogue chorus and bucket brigade delay (and some strange noises from time to time). Dreadbox Nxy playing the bass. Then some strings contributed by the K4 and coloured by a racked Vermona graphic equalizer (offering channel-cascading for extreme EQ results). The EQ's output is made wide by the Zoom MT100BT's 'HD-HALL'. Finally the Phoscyon 303 emulation running through an automated Fruity Loop's 'Delay 3'.

Video shows life footage from the cockroach studio, piano-roll shoots and some gear pix."

Custom One of a Kind Vintage Korg 800 DV Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

Fully serviced, all tantalum capacitors and some electrolytics replaced, qualibrated and ready to play. Design revisited with brushed aluminium and precious wood work (original plywood parts included for a reverse job if necessary) some of the original knobs replaced ( the original ones will be included ). 4 Vco's, 2 VCF Multiple EG's and ramps 3 LFO's, this monster is also capable of duophonic mode . The added korg joystick ( dss1 donor) is mechanically mounted but not yet implemented so it could be used for the desired control with simple proper wiring. One of the switches is missing his lever but can still be easily used. Very fat and musical sounds from kitsch 70's stuff to the ultra modern sharp and huge sounds everything is possible with it."
