dsp-D8 Single Chip DIY Drumkit Now Available for DIY

"Remember the Drumulator or the Simmons SDS-1?

The dsp-D8 is now available as single chip DIP-28 DIY drumkit.

Drumkit with 8 sounds and separate trigger inputs.

6 of the sounds can be separatly tuned using 6 analog inputs 0-5v.

40KHz sample frequency.

3-5volt power and no external components besides a passiv LPF.

Fully polyphonic.

Simple to use as a soundchip in an analog drumsynth or module.

This is the Drumulator or SP-12 in a single chip!

It's so easy to be an E-drummer that my Granma could do it."

MicroMoog Model 2090 with Silver Side Panels

via this auction

"This is Moog Music's "synthesizer for everyman. The design approach for the Micromoog was to use a minimal number of functional building blocks and to configure the instrument for the greatest amount of performer control over these blocks. The Micromoog consists of the basic necessities: one voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), one voltage controlled amplifier (VCA), two contour generators, and one sample and hold. The 'open system' inputs and outputs make this Micromoog a basic musical building block which can be expanded to meet the performer's growth."

New Wusik SEQ for Windows / MAC (VST and AU)

No screenshot or demo yet, but here are the initial details:

"Wusik SEQ is a Windows / MAC (VST and AU) plugin chainer and sequencer. So, you can load Wusik SEQ in your host and will be able to load multiple plugins inside it, and have the internal Wusik SEQ create Wave Sequenced sounds with different plugins, all chained together in a single plugin instance of your original host / daw.

What you get is actually simple, but the result is complex. Here’s an example. Load up two VSTs, A and B, let’s say. Now in the sequencer, just as you do with the Wave Sequencer inside Wusik Station or Wusik 4000 & 8000, you set each step to a different sound, in this case, you select a different plugin to be used. For each key you hit and hold a new sequence is created, and the steps will determinate which plugin will receive the note events. This way you can create complex Wave Sequencing, but in this case, Plugin Sequencing. Each Sequence Step can be assigned to one or multiple plugins of the current chain.

Each instance of Wusik SEQ can hold unlimited number of Sequences, and each Sequence can hold unlimited number of chained plugins.

On Windows we will be working on VST and VST3 formats, and on the MAC side we will add the AU format along.

There’s no preset data here, as this is not a synth or sampler, but a plugin chainer / sequencer. Also, this is not an Arpegiator or a complete DAW solution. This is, as said above, a Plugin Sequencer.
There’s also options like Sticky Keys and Key Switching for each sequence, and key / velocity zones for each sequence, amongst other options such as MIDI Channel and other things yet to be defined.

Currently this product is under Pre-Order terms, and we don’t have an ETA just yet. But we are working as fast as possible to complete this project."

[DEMO] WALDORF NW-1// SPECTRA 2 // Complete Wavetables 38-57

Published on Sep 11, 2015 LESINDES

"I recorded a drone to give you an idea how versatile the factory preset wavetables are, middle octave, in which 1 internal and 3 external LFOs are modulating FOUR basic wave parameters of the Waldorf: TRAVEL (quite slow), BRILLIANCE (fast), POSITION (slowest) and SPECTRUM (medium). I chose very distinct modulator speeds in order to enable you to realize how the different NW-1 paramters interact. PITCH constant and NOISY off."

We all know Bach on the East Coast synthesizer...but sometimes he just likes to lay low on the West side. Make Noise/Intellijel/4ms voice"

Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolver Keyboard: Improvisation LIV

Published on Sep 11, 2015 Sacred Synthesis

"This piece is pure Evolver - every single note. I wanted to demonstrate two sounds: a string pad using the 2-pole filter setting and full resonance in which the cutoff frequency is swept with the modulation wheel, and a classic sawtooth solo patch. I offer these as musical examples of the Evolver's tone, and also as a comparison with the Prophet '08's versions of the same sounds.

The strings do "sizzle" in this improvisation, as synthesists often say of the Curtiss chip timbre. Many hate it and endlessly carry on about its insufferable tone, but I like it and find it distinctive. To my ears, it's reminiscent of the Polymoog. I specifically wanted to demonstrate its characteristics and give people a good listen to it in a musical context, although in the 2-pole filter mode it is a little mellower than in 4-pole. I don't know what I would do without this 2-pole; I use it constantly and really like it's extra ethereal effect on strings. I also wanted to improvise through the filter's range and linger especially around the mid range points, coming and going from them slowly; they offer a mysterious timbre all their own - choir-like in tone.

For the sawtooth patch, only the two analog oscillators were used, and the delay comes from the instrument itself - a feature I really appreciate. I would have preferred to have added the digital sawtooths as well, at least softly for added depth. But the digital aliasing - even on the sawtooth (waveshape #2) - is just terrible in the higher registers. This is one of my main criticisms of the Evolvers - the aliasing that makes many of the waveshapes nearly un-useable, at least in certain ranges. The Evolver in general is a noisy instrument, though still exceptional.

I would love to hear the Prophet 12 perform this piece, side-by-side for comparison. Would it sound as good, or better? I'm thinking....
