Berliner Schule plays Roland System 100

Published on Aug 17, 2015 omegaattraktor

"8 Bit Mix Tape 'Berliner Schule' is sequencing Roland System100. 'Berliner Schule' is a 8 Step control voltage sequencer using an atiny84 microcontroller. For triggering the System 100 a trigger converter for the higher voltage of the System 100 is needed."

And a second video from Marc Dusseiller. Not sure what it's driving in this one.

Berliner Schule - 8Step Mixtape

Published on Jul 31, 2015 Marc Dusseiller

"more about the 8Bit Mixtape series:"

Note there are a number of different firmwares including an 8BitMixtapeBeatSlicer and 8BitMixtapeDJ "experimental 8 bit mixtape with dual pwm out and digital crossfade". I created a new 8BitMixtape channel for these moving forward.

The Berliner Schule is a "modified 8step sequencer to run on attiny84, with LED driving and eeprom save"

[techdemo] MB6582 test: 8x 6581 C64 SIDs, multiple engines in live use

Published on Aug 17, 2015 Maelstroem3

"Disclaimer: this is not a proper musical track, it is just a quick function test and a highly repetitive demo, with focus on parameter changes - just to see, if all encoders, switches and LEDs work well, and to test, if multiple MBSID engines can be controlled in a live session from the frontpanel.

This MB6582 is for sale (and it is already currently reserved for a MIDIbox forum member). It is my secondary unit, am of course keeping my first MB6582. I just don't have enough space for it... and 16 SIDs in one studio might be considered overkill. :-)

Listen with headphones for optimum SID induction! :-)

This synth has eight classic 6581 SIDs in four MBSID hardware engines with four independent 6.3mm stereo outs. Three of these four engines were tested in parallel in this run:

* Bassline Engine (MBSID engine 1) run through a Strymon Timeline delay, sequenced by the MBSID onboard bassline sequencer (which is awesome!) - it allows for two parallel basslines per engine/SID stereo pair - one running from top to bottom, one running from left to right (see matrix view) - and they are routed to the left/right stereo outputs of that engine.

* Lead engine (MBSID engine 2) sequence externally added via MBSEQ, the rest of the sequences are from the onboard MB6582 sequencers (drums + bassline). You would not need a DAW or external sequencer for this kind of jam session. The Lead engine output is also run through the Strymon Timeline.

* Drum engine (SID engine 4) muted and unmuted via mixer, run through a Schippmann Ebbe & Flut filter/compressor/distortion unit.

All sounds produced only by the 6581s (production years 1983/1984), only 2 external FX units used.

The signal to noise ratio is not super good on the 30+ year old SIDs, but you can add noise gates or filter the higher frequencies via EQ, external lowpass filter or even with the SID inbuilt lowpass filters...

If you listen to this track with headphones, you will notice not-too-bad noise levels, even though only a single noisegate was used on the drum engine outputs (inbuilt in the Ebbe and Flut FX). The still remaining high-frequency noise could be quite easily filtered with a low-pass filter, but i was lazy :-).

Imho, the gritty 6581 SIDs are ideal for dirty 8-bit drums and basslines, enjoy the filtersweep @ 5:15! :-).

Many greets and thanks for watching and listening!

Roland V-Synth 2.0 "Essential Preset Pads & Strings" Virtual Analog Synthesizer

Published on Aug 17, 2015

"Roland V-Synth 2.0 'Essential Preset Pads & Strings'
by Rik Marston 100% No Talking!

Roland V-Synth Virtual Analog Sampling Synthesizer
audio demo recorded dry with no effects except for the
internal FX from the V-Synth itself. These are just presets,
but they are great to show off the sound engine power &
how multi-dimensional this synth can sound. I just love it!
I turn to this synth often because it can just do so much!
It has been used by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran on tour
and can be seen in many great studios around the world.
Truly a great inspiring instrument, it should deserve a real
"classic" title in the near future because it truly is a monster!

70s Sequential Circuits Prelude SN 264/299 with Original Box

via this auction

"Heres something really cool. Fully working Prelude in the original box! So this is a full polyphonic analog synth as you would expect, but like others of its day its built off instrument presets which become your starting points. You can add the presets in various ways, but it gets more synthy with the modulation. Is it as versatile as a mini-moog? No, but as a gigging synth its pretty damn useful. As a substitute for an Arp string ensemble its great. Even has little popup feet in the back - why dont all keyboards have this?"

Published on Aug 17, 2015 William Mathewson

"A patch made by Alex showcasing the Resonance of the Pole Zero filter and the modulation capabilities of the Monolith using The Spectrum Oscillators as Modulation sources. The Ultra fold and ToolBox modules both played a part in affecting the modulation sources for a more chaotic and sporadic outcome in the sound."

Matttech Modular WMD Workshop - PDO

Published on Aug 17, 2015 DivKidMusic

"On April 22nd 2015 Matttech Modular put on a workshop at Madlab in Manchester, UK, featuring William Mathewson from WMDevices, where he kindly demonstrated his new range of modules. These were designed in collaboration with Steady State Fate's Andrew Morelli and we got to see the much-anticipated Monolith keyboard in all its glory. William also ran through some of WMDevices' classic designs - such as the Geiger Counter, Synchrodyne and PDO mk.2.

In part 7 William takes us through the PDO module and the Triple Bipolar VCA as an expander for the module."
