Testing Quantum VJ with Korg Monotribe

Published on Nov 4, 2015 Alexander Zolotov

From Alexander Zolotov, the creator of Sunvox & more:

"Quantum VJ is a glitch-style 8-bit pendant and audio visualizer. Any audio source can be connected to this device through the jack plug (3.5mm). It also can visualize some electromagnetic interference and the "soul modulations" of the owner when the audio ports are not connected. There are nine display modes that can be switched by the button."

Circuit Shifter (Novation Circuit)

Published on Nov 4, 2015 HardtekStudios

"Download the audio track for FREE here-
New Circuit jam featuring a neat trick with the delay. On most machines the delay time is controlled with a knob, but on the Circuit you get several timing of delay from 16 buttons/pads. So instead of morphing from one delay time to another, you can jump from one timing to a completely different timing. This creates a unique effect of the delay trying to catch up to the new timing. Bottom line is it sounds kewl and kinda glitchy in a rhythmic way."

Improvisation II - DSI Prophet 08 and EHX Cathedral

Published on Nov 4, 2015 SYNTHWAY

"This is an improvisation on a theme with the amazing DSI Prophet 08 and EHX Cathedral reverb. They sound nice together...

The sound is an ambient pad, using both layers, therefore leaving me 4 voices of polyphony, which isn't exactly enough. Anyway, I think I managed to extract musicality out of it.

Not my best work, but I liked the result and decided to share with you guys. Thank you for watching!"

Moog Modular 55 Lego Set

Moog Modular 55

Vote for Lego to make them here!

Another great set via andy g @grobie

You can also vote for his Minimoog Lego set here [previous post].

On the Moog 55 set:

"The synthesizer that started it all...The Moog System Modular Synthesizer, represented here by the widely-known 55 model.

In 1964, Dr. Robert Moog showed the first of his modular synthesizers to the world, and over the next few years transformed the emerging world of electronic music synthesis by taking a keyboard-based approach to the controlled manipulation of electronic sounds. The Moog 55 and subsequent models made their way into universities, concert stages, and recording studios around the world.

In a modular synthesizer, various electronic components such as voltage-controlled oscillators, amplifiers, filters, and envelopes are "patched" together in various ways by hardware cables, allowing the composer or player to a world of new sonic possibilities. Since the instrument is modular, various components can be swapped out, replaced, or upgraded to suit the needs of the musician.

This Lego-ified version of the Moog 55 has swappable black panels full of components, dials, and audio jacks that can be connected in various ways. Obviously, the elements are only meant to suggest the qualities of the various modular components, and the owner of this set could customize the cabling and dial and jack placement to their heart's content."

You might remember the microKEY Air in this earlier post for KORG's Module.

"Korg brings you even more compact controller options with the new microKEY and microKEY AIR Series:

microKEY can be completely powered by an iPad or iPhone and now offers a pedal input for sustain (micoKEY25 offers a sustain button). There’s also a new 49-key version for the two-handed player that still wants compact.

microKEY AIR – To accommodate simpler and quicker setups, or to simply unwire and unclutter your rig, the microKEY Air series features Apple’s Wireless Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) standard, which provides long battery life and extremely low latency! They also have standard USB connections.

Both come with a comprehensive software bundle to advance your plug in library, or serve as your starting point to making music using your computer or iOS device!"
