Published on Oct 30, 2015 RolandChannel

"Nick Rhodes knows a great synthesizer when he plays one. In this interview, he reveals how Roland gear has always played a big part in the Duran Duran sound, from the JUPITER-4 used on Rio right through to the new JD-XA analog/digital crossover synth powering their Paper Gods world tour.

Sonic Memoirs of a Ghost Hunter

Follow-up to this post. Sonic Memoirs of a Ghost Hunter featuring the Evaton Technologies RF Nomad is now available. The Moog Sub 37, Moogerfoogers and Novation Ultranova were also used. Embed with link above; details below.

"Combining music with an interest in the paranormal, Sonic Memoirs is an album (the 1st in a series) that documents some of my actual paranormal investigations via synthesis.

After 20 years of ghost hunting research & field experience, I find myself rewarded with paranormal evidence found on stacks of video tapes, countless photos, as well as EVP (electronic voice phenomena) recordings. The stories I can share can fill more than a few dark & stormy evenings of friends gathered in a candlelit room. Though I'm writing a book outlining my investigations, I'm finding the process to be slower than anticipated. This being my 20 year anniversary as a ghost hunter, I decided to think more creatively, and as a musician, relay some of my experiences through music. Specifically... synthesis.

All of these tracks are created using analog and digital synthesizers. The majority of the sounds created are made using a eurorack modular synthesizer, though synths like the Moog Sub 37, and the Novation Ultranova, as well as Moogerfooger effects make appearances from time to time as well. No samples were used, and all tracks were performed in one take with no overdubs.

These are not EDM tracks. They are instead artistic soundscapes intended to capture the vibe of how some of my investigations felt while in the moment. Other tracks are intended to give you the essence of what it is like to perform some of the duties of a ghost hunter post & pre investigation.

Each track has a brief description of the investigation or investigative process found below the track outside of this playlist. After listening to the tracks, for the full intended experience, I highly recommend reading these.

The ghost phenomenon is very real. To anyone who does not believe - that's great! After all, skeptics make the best ghost hunters. All you need do is begin the journey with a serious demeanor, and review your findings thoroughly. You will reach a point where you cannot deny the mounting anomalies you encounter as simply coincidence.

Happy Halloween, and Safe Hunting - VDM"

Mutable Instruments - Elements - The Resonator

Published on Oct 30, 2015 isvisible / isinvisible

"Here's a simple patch showing some of the sounds that the Mutable Instruments 'Elements' can make with virtually no modulation. In fact the only additional modulation it's getting is on the Timbre of the Strike.
For this video I'm just purely concentrating on tweaking the Resonator side of Elements.

Here's a few patch notes:

ALM - Pamela's Workout is clocking the Mutable Instruments 'Grids', a Doepfer A-151 (switch) and the Livewire 'Chaos Computer'.
Three outputs from 'Grids' into the A-151, then clocking the 'Klee' sequencer.
The Klee is providing cv to 'Elements' v/oct input.
A quantised output from the Livewire 'Chaos Computer' is providing cv to the v/oct input of a Cylonix 'Cyclebox' which is in Percussive mode and has a steady 4x4 trigger applied to it's Sync in. The Cyclebox also has it's PH2 input modulated by an output from the Chaos Computer.
Both outputs from the Cyclebox go into both inputs of Elements.
A Binary output from the Chaos Computer is going into the gate input of Elements.
An output from the Chaos Computer into the cv control for the Strike Timbre in Elements.
Both outputs from Elements (stereo) into a mixer to record audio straight to Reaper.
And that's it. - melodic - less melodic"

Oberheim Matrix 6 Editor for VST and Standalone App

Published on Oct 30, 2015 MrSynthmania

"Introduction of my new Oberheim Matrix 6 Editor. This app is compatible with your Matrix 6 and 6R and runs under Windows and Apple Mac. The firmware of your Matrix 6 must be 2.13.

Some people say the Oberheim Matrix 6 is a very underrated synthesizer. It is not very comfortable to edit its very versatile synthesis and the powerfull matrix. But remember the Oberheim Matrix is a powerfull 6 voice analog synthesizer.

I love my mashine because of its typical Oberheim sound quality, but I hate it to edit some programs.
Now you have access to more than 90 parameters directly...with my new Oberheim Matrix 6 Editor.
For more information take a look at my website

If you like this app, you can buy it for only 15,- Euros."
