Oberheim OB-X vs. OB-Xa Vintage Analog Synthesizer

Published on Oct 15, 2015 RetroSound

"(c) 2015 vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound

Oberheim OB-X (1979) 8-voice vs. Oberheim OB-Xa (1981) 8-voice Analog Synthesizer with identical self-programmed sound programs.

This video shows the different sound character. The OB-X is discrete analog like the SEM modul and sounds very raw and wild.
The OB-Xa based on Curtis CEM ICs and sounds more smooth.
Both are great synths and I love both a lot. The king class of polyphonic analog synthesizers."

Keith McMillen Instruments K-Board Pro 4 Sneak Peek

Published on Oct 15, 2015 Keith McMillen Instruments

"KMI Labs has been hard at work developing innovative music technology. Take a look at one of our projects!"

A standard keyboard style controller using Keith McMillen's touch pad technology. Note the two styles of pressure sensitivity in the video - vibrato with slight horizontal movement and modulation with vertical movement. Curious if there is also standard aftertouch or if that was the vibrato and the horizontal movement was more for effect. Also curious if this will support the equivalent of poly aftertouch for each.

Retronyms Brings Phase84 Synthesizer to Android

"On Thursday Retronyms announced the release of Phase84 on Samsung Galaxy Apps. Retronyms describes Phase84 as a "next generation phase distortion synthesizer that fuses gritty digital sounds with traditional analog punch".

'Phase84 is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth. It works through the magic of Phase Distortion. Phase distortion synthesizers utilize a form of waveshaping synthesis introduced in 80’s-era digital synthesizers. Phase84 can create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between.'
— Louis Gorenfeld, Retronyms

Phase84 includes over 110 presets including basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. Users can tweak the synth using a combination of advanced envelope, LFO, Delay, Filter, and Oscillator settings. Phase84 includes features for expressive performance, a groove editor, and an advanced multi-octave keyboard.

Phase84 will be available exclusively from Samsung Galaxy Apps for $4.99. According to Retronyms, it takes advantage of Samsung’s Professional Audio SDK (SAPA) to deliver low latency performance. Samsung Galaxy devices including Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Tab 5, and Galaxy Tab S2 support Samsung’s Pro Audio tech making this the first version of Phase84 to run on phones as well as tablets.

Phase84 also integrates with SoundCamp, a free mobile DAW by Samsung. Users can seamlessly load the synth into a track in SoundCamp, then record and edit notes on a piano roll sequencer. Combining Phase84 with other tracks, virtual instruments, and recorded audio, allows users to create full compositions and finished songs.

Phase84 features include:
Advanced Keyboard section controls portamento, polyphony, pitch bend, mod wheel mapping, octave and more.
Expressive Perform Mode with Groove Gate and two axis controllers.
Naturalistic unison for super thick pads and sweeps.
Oscillator Section: 9 Params, 2 General-Purpose Oscillators, 1 Formant Oscillator.
Mix Section: 8 Params including Delay Amount and Pulse Width.
Envelope Section: Amplitude and Shaper Envelopes. Fully visualized and interactive ADSR plus special Fade Param.
Delay/Filter Section: Stereo delay with loss modeling and a punchy overdriven analog-style filter.
3 LFOs: More flexible than your average LFO, this has 4 waveforms, optional delay and repeat count, and can go into the audible frequency range.
Samsung Professional Audio technology.
SoundCamp Support.

Moog mars musings part iii

"Continuing to upload these, here is part iii

Back in January 2004, when NASA’s Rover Lander touched down on Mars, Todd Barton began creating and posting a one minute daily music composition based on that day’s image from NASA’s website. Using his new Signature Moog Voyager as the exclusive sound generator, a looper and an effects pedal he created 110 Moog Mars Musings tracks.

Soon after the first few posts Edmund Eagan responded with the idea of tying each score to a current Mars image. Near the end of February Edmund started to create and synchronize his video manipulations with the music and posted those on his site.

The mars musings project ran online every day from January 25 to May 14th, 2004.

Here are the second batch of 20 of the Moog Mars Musings project. More to follow over the next few months."

New Make Noise LxD Lowpass Gate Eurorack Module

via @ctrl_mod / Control

via Make Noise
"The LxD, Low Strike Duo, is a dual-response, two channel, direct-coupled, Low Pass Gate, which utilizes vactrols in order to provide simultaneous control over the Amplitude and Frequency Spectrum of an INput Signal. It is, in essence, a VCFA (Voltage Controlled Filter Amplifier). Unlike the Optomix, the LxD offers two different filter responses. CH. 1 offers a 12db/ Octave response that is mildly-resonant, while CH. 2 offers a 6bd/ Octave that is non-resonant. The OUTput of CH. 1 is normalled to the INput of CH. 2. This normalization puts the two channels in series, which is similar to the VCF into VCA arrangement made popular by many monosynths of the 1970’s.

Classic VCF->VCA arrangement in small 4hp module

STRIKE INput allows use of Gate signal to trigger Low Pass Gate circuit, "plucking" or "striking" the vactrol

Low noise, low distortion, smooth, natural-sounding circuit

Direct coupled, process audio or control signals

Utilizes 2 vactrols

Pairs well with STO and MATHS"

Sequential Circuits Pro One with Blue LED

via this auction

"You are bidding on a way above average condition Sequential Circuits Pro One. . THIS IS NOT A J WIRE MODEL. This unit is a membrane keyboard. It is in almost Museum quality Cosmetically as far as the main black and white synth goes. As you can see all writing is mint all knobs look new, all name plates are present and look great !. The two wood end caps are in Good condition and show minor standard blemishes if you look very close. The key bed looks perfect with straight keys however it is the membrane key bed and although the whole synth is recently serviced, the key bed does misfire quite a bit when not played regularly ! The more you play it the more it breaks in . After about 2 or 3 days of playing it starts to work pretty good with only the occasional misfire. However the CV and gate in's and outs work perfect, So i would recommend this synth to be controlled by a modular rig ! That is what i have done,! It has reg CV gate for oscillators and separate for the filters !! The unit is 100% functionally, apart from the normal issues associated with the membrane keyboard. As you probably know if your looking, This unit is an Analog Bass Monster, It keeps its tuning very well and will shake things off the wall of your studio ! Its no Joke, that’s why people pay for these...LOL Believe me if i didn't really need the money...I digress.."

Kilpatrick Audio Phenol - Patch 008 - Woggle Sequence

"DiscoverNoise 010-
Kilpatrick Audio Phenol 009-

A patch with a lot more randomness going on. During the first minute you hear the original sequence coming from the Arturia Beatstep. After that the Beatstep syncs the MakeNoise Wogglebug MK2 via the gate out. The wogglebug then sends gate signals (burst) to the Phenol via the Phenols "external in". With short decay you can hear more steps being fired of then the Beatstep has programed. For the last touch of randomness the Phenols LFO "Random Out" changes the the LP-Filters "FM in". Other changes are descripted in the video.

Roland Jupiter 8 (filtering, arpeggiator, unison and polyphonic modes, etc...).

Published on Dec 25, 2012 nebby6

"Playing around on the Roland Jupiter 8 analog synthesizer, making use of the board's filtering, resonance, cross-modulation, pitch bender, modulation button, arpeggiator, both ADSRs, and a few other goodies in order to real-time manipulate a single patch.

The Jupiter 8 was used by bands like Journey (Escape), The Cure, Depeche Mode, Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran (Rio), Men at Work, Queen, Michael Jackson (Thriller), and a bunch of others.

This is fed through a basic reverb module, on the way to the mixing board.

More recordings using this synth are at blitter dot com (Mannequin Depressives, Voltage Control, and Nebulous)."

Captain Credible - Dead Cats EP Release as a Printed Circuitboard

What is Dead Cats generative EP? (and why is it?) Published on Sep 25, 2015 Captain Credible

Captain Credible wrote in to let us know about his upcoming "Dead Cats" EP (currently available for pre-order here). What makes this particular EP unique is that as a creator of electronic instruments, Captain Credible decided to release it as a printed circuitboard, with each one featuring a different version of the final track, "main.h". The track is actually generated by the circuit board (see the main.h SoundCloud embed below for an example). The board is Arduino based, and Captain Credible made the code available here.

"Captain Credible is an electronica artist based in Oslo. Known for his violently eccentric live performances and arsenal of homemade instruments, he plays angry electronic music influenced by punk and old video games. The Captain refers to his sounds as 'filthy drunk beats bathing in a lake of melting synthesizers and old Nintendo cartridges'.

October 2015 brings with it the release of the EP 'Dead Cats' on Metronomicon Audio. This is the first in a series of 3 printed circuitboards. Unlike a traditional EP, Dead Cats is different for every copy of the physical release. Alongside the 5 downloadable tracks, each circuit board generates its own version of the final track 'main.h' using your download code as its source of inspiration. Simply plug your headphones into the headphone jack and absorbe the harsh reality that is the robot takeover of the cultural market.

The release also marks a new liveset with hand crafted space-age, razor sharp instruments utilizing a unique system of visual feedback. Causing epileptic fits and temporary blindness to both audience and performer."

Published on Aug 8, 2014 Captain Credible

"Just a rough sketch of the new instruments in the wild, more and better footage in the making. Finally mankind has instruments that induce epileptic fits while you play them! Hooray!"

A quick side note: Captain Credible is also a supporter of the site! Thank you Captain Credible!
