Nov 17th 200r DIY Buchla Improv

Published on Nov 17, 2015 djangosfire

"Experimenting with a 259r output fed through a 277r back into itself in this delayed feedback FM style patch.

Many aspects of the timbre control via 218r touch interface.

All sounds from my DIY Buchla 200r system.

Thank you for checking out my experiments!

Sub 37 + Pro 2 -- Osc Sync Jam

Published on Nov 17, 2015 experimentalsynth

"A DSI Pro 2 plays a sequence and sends two independent clock-synced CV step sequences to the Sub 37. One modulated the 37's filter cutoff and the other (via CV Mapping) controls its Osc 2 frequency. The Sub 37 is processed by an Eventide H9, using the Vintage Delay algorithm. Learn more at"

Custom Buchla Easel Clone & Cabinet


"I have been working on finishing my Buchla Easel analogue modular synth the last couple of months. That included designing a custom cabinet to house the modules. My 'Easelesque' instrument contains 3 modules: the Buchla 208 Music Easel, the Buchla 216 Touch Controlled Voltage Source and the Buchla 277 Signal Delay Unit. All these modules are clones of the original Buchla 200 series of the 70’s. I still have to debug the 216 module as it doesn’t work correctly yet. The 277 might be replaced by some kind of joystick module in the future but I’m not sure about that. I first need to spend more time with the instrument. I do love the 208 though. It’s a complete instrument in itself and the 216 keyboard will only broaden the possibilities..."

Native Instruments introduces FLESH

Published on Nov 17, 2015 Native Instruments

And two demo tracks from Richard Devine. Press release and images follow below.

"Extended demo of the new "Flesh" Reaktor 6 instrument. "Changing Colors" :-) Very cool innovative performance synth that turns anything you feed it into a electronic symphony

Notes - Only two instances of the Flesh ensemble used. For this demo I used a few kicks, snares, high hats, cymbal crashes, ethnic percussion, and white noise samples at some of the loop parts and at the transitions segments. These where all single shot sounds not loops, that I programmed in time with Flesh. This only accounts for a small amount compared to what Flesh was actually doing, which was about 85% of the demo. I took one snare crash from one of the kits in Flesh and reverse it for one transition. The rest of the sounds are 100% Flesh. There was only one touch of reverb on a Aux send and return with 2CAudio 2C-B2 plug-in."

"November 17, 2015, Berlin – Native Instruments today released FLESH – a new REAKTOR Instrument developed by electronic musician, producer, and inventor Tim Exile. FLESH uses a set of advanced algorithms to turn rhythmic source material into all the elements of a complete production, including basslines, melodies, chords, harmonies, and more. The instrument is aimed at creative producers looking to enhance their live sets or find fresh inspiration for their original productions through a fun, improvisational approach. FLESH is available now at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / ¥ 11,800 / £89 / $AU149 and runs in REAKTOR 6 or the free REAKTOR 6 PLAYER.

"The concept for FLESH came to me when touring with my custom looping, beatmaking, and improvising instrument that I built in REAKTOR," says Tim Exile. "I was missing a way to make harmonic and melodic material in a live, improvised scenario. I wanted something that would empower me to create expressive and dynamic sounds which fit in perfectly with whatever was going on at the time."

FLESH was designed to be a fun and easy-to-use performance instrument. Its advanced algorithms analyze the transients and spectral profile of sampled source material in the background. This information is then sent to four audio engines as curves and triggers for re-synthesizing the source material. The result is dynamic riffs, grooves, and chords that retain the feel of the original sample. This advanced processing is made possible by the REAKTOR 6 engine.

FLESH comprises four audio engines, plus effects and modulation sections. Each engine has a specific function, from changing the sonic character of the sample itself to transforming it into a monophonic sequence or lead, chords, or sub-bass frequencies. Additionally, the sound generated can be further modified by the effects section and modulation page. The effects section re-creates a highly-modified dub delay while the modulation page allows producers to add subtle to radical motion to their sound.

FLESH features a streamlined control set allowing for radical changes to the rhythmic and tonal output of the instrument. Producers can play rich harmonic progressions, trigger and switch source samples and sound snapshots, then tweak parameters across all engines at once in real time. A clever system of global macro controls allows for consistent and tactile live tweaking on just four main controls – Spectrum, Character, Length, Mod.

FLESH is the first REAKTOR Instrument designed from the ground up to get the most out of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. FLESH uses the Light Guide to provide tight visual feedback, highlighting sounds and samples, and sequenced harmonies. Native Map® automaps parameters to the eight control knobs on the KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards. Users can also save presets – including samples – and recall them in real time.

Tim Exile has seen his career move from performing in small clubs, to big stages around the world and releasing albums on the Planet Mu and Warp imprints. For the last years, Tim has worked closely with Native Instruments to design his own set of 'audio instruments' including THE MOUTH and THE FINGER.

FLESH is available now at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / ¥ 11,800 / £89 / $AU149

Colliding Feelings [Live Modular Patch]

Colliding Feelings [Live Modular Patch] from Icaro Ferre on Vimeo.

"After travelling more than 14h to play a gig this past weekend, I returned to my home-studio and decided to work on a patch that could represent how I feel being both a performing artist and an introvert and how this often lead to an interesting mix of different (and often opposing) feelings.

The bassline was created using the Mutable Instruments Braids (_|_|_|_|_ mode) going through the Doepfer A-124 Wasp Filter.
The other two synth layers were created using the Synthesis Technology e350 and the Mutable Instruments Tides, both going into the Make Noise Optomix. I'm also using the Expert Sleepers Disting as a clocked delay for the second synth layer.
I'm also using the EMW Digi-Drum to crete the bass drums and the Tiptop Audio Z3000 mk2 to create an old-school lead sound.
Only FX used was the ValhallaDSP VintageVerb."
