Published on Nov 3, 2015

"A powerful partnership between KORG and OK GO - a special edition of the volca sample.

Packed with 100 carefully selected audio samples from 'Hungry Ghosts,' the latest album from OK GO, the limited edition OK GO volca is now here. You can freely edit their numerous iconic sounds, such as the vocal line from "I Won't Let You Down" or the bass from "The Writing's On the Wall," and arrange them to create your own music. Use the content to create your own version Ok GO’s infectious tunes, mix and match content with your own samples create remixes, or create entirely original sample-based music using the simple, step-based recording layout of the volca sample."

via Korg:

"100 different OK GO sounds are built-in

One hundred guitar, bass, drum, synthesizer, and vocal phrases that were actually used on "Hungry Ghosts," the latest album from OK GO, are built-in as preloaded samples (*). First you'll want to listen to these samples and enjoy the signature sounds of OK GO.

You can also edit the samples intuitively as you would expect on the volca sample. You can create completely new sounds by turning the knobs to adjust parameters such as length, pitch, and level.

Just as OK GO has given us songs, music videos, and performances that have never been seen or heard before, you can use this machine with OK GO sounds to generate and play sounds that nobody has ever heard."

"We invited KiNK and CALC to our Amsterdam apartment during ADE to jam with Circuit.
What you see is the unedited, single-take performance. The audio you hear was a split of the stereo monitor feed in the room, and is unedited and unprocessed.

Massive thanks to the techno gods (and Strahil and Chris) for making this happen. We owe you one.

Ian Richter - Demonesque & Lavished

Ian Richter - Demonesque & Lavished from Nimrod Alexander Gershoni on Vimeo.

via Ian Richter:

"I recently performed a continuous 18-minute piece with my small eurorack modular system and a Korg MS2000, that moves from abstract soundscapes into more structured songs with vocals and then back again. Artist Nimrod Alexander Gershoni filmed the performance and then manipulated the video to create a dark psychedelic journey that doesn't quite fall into the 'music video' or 'live performance video' categories, but somewhere in between.

"Analogue Zone presents - Mutant Drums Controlled by Game System and Propagate

A little drumbeat created by two modules: the Pittsbugrh Modular Game System and the Steady State Fate Propagate.
The Game System's Gate Out 3 triggers the Propagate from which different gate spacing and delay a non-linear sequence is being created.
Propagate Ch1 triggers the - Mutant Machine
Ch2 triggers the Mutant Clap
Ch4 triggers the Mutant Bass Drum
The Mutant Hihats are being triggered from two sources: #1 - The other gate outs of the Game System are triggering the Mutant Hihat and its Decay CV which results in random closed and open hihat sounds.""

EML 400/401 Synthesizer Sequencer Electrocomp

via this auction

"Here's your chance to own the rare EML 400/401 synthesizer and sequencer.

This really is one of the coolest analog sequencers and is very unique and powerful. The synth section is rather simple but does offer two oscillators, multiple filter types, ring modulation, and voltage controlled envelope times. Overall it sounds only like an EML can.

There's simply too many features to run through this unit entirely, but everything I tested appears to be working as it should.

In very nice shape for its age... wood, handle, and clasps all in good working condition too..."

See http://myblogitsfullofstars.blogspot.... for more"

"This patch uses the Analog Shift Register to delay a sequencer pattern by 2 steps before going to a 2nd oscillator. They both go into the Wilson Analog Delay which is being VC'd by the sequencer too"
