"I've been working with the idea of loosening up the modular without devolving into chaos. here's a wonky patch that I did today."

Panoramical & Modular Tests

Published on Nov 25, 2015 FRACT OSC

"Get Panoramical (

This is my first attempt at getting my modular and videogames to interact - using the gorgeous music game Panoramical. This was recorded & captured in real-time and in one take. A few simple patterns are being played by Ableton, with various control voltages being fed into a Doepfer 192-1 which in turn is manipulating Panoramical. Some simple verb and delay are added once everything comes back into Ableton.

Despite the patch spaghetti, it's a dead simple patch, I just needed to mult out and control the amount of CV heading to the game.The potential with Panoramical as a performance tool is pretty undeniable - and I look forward to trying with better designed and more musical patches now that I have a better understanding of how synth and game can interact."

Korg Poly 800 with Mods

via this auction

"Up for your consideration is a fully functional Korg Poly 800 synthesizer with several modifications that enhance the functionality and make this unit a fine candidate for the central piece to your music production environment. Modifications were professionally installed by experienced and skilled hands and are described below. I've modified a good handful of these and this particular machine is in the best cosmetic condition I have ever seen. Absolutely like-new!! Original Korg power supply included.


The Korg Poly800 and its rackmount / tabletop cousin the EX800 are odd beasts. They came from that strange era of Korg synths where they couldn't seem to decide between analogue and digital, and so came up with a selection of hybrid synths that didn't seem to excel as either sound. On paper the Poly800 was a pretty well endowed machine but in reality it always sounded a little thin and never really fulfilled its potential, which is where we step in with our Polybeast mods!


Cutoff & Resonance Knobs: This mod can be found around the net under several different names (Moog Slayer Mod) and versions but essentially it adds knob controls for the filter cutoff and resonance parameters for realtime control. The resonance knob can take the resonance well into self oscillation and far beyond what is programmable from the front panel. This can produce the kind of screaming top end and subsonic bass that gives these machines a whole new range of sonic possibilities. The filter cutoff knob allows you to perform long filter sweeps for those squidgy burbling analogue lines that you knew your Korg was capable of but could never actually program. Both parameters are still also controlled by the normal programming methods which can set the range of the knobs control.

12dB / 24dB Filter Response Switch: Somewhat mysteriously the filter chip used in these machines has both 12dB/Oct and 24dB/Oct outputs but only the 24dB one is actually used. This mod adds a switch to select either a 24dB or less drastic 12dB filter response

VCF CV input: This socket round the back of the machine adds an external 0-5v control voltage input that controls the filter cutoff. The new filter cutoff control knob is disabled when a jack is plugged into the socket.


External Audio Input: This accepts a line level audio signal and inserts it before the filter and chorus effect so you can use it to process external signals. The input is set up so that a loud signal will slightly overdrive the filter for a dirty sound.

External Audio Path Switch: This switch sends the audio from the external input either via the DCO1 or DCO2 signal path or turns it off completely. The input doesn't respond to the DEG audio level envelopes but instead is gated on and off by the noise gate that korg implemented to silence the synth when all the envelopes are completely closed. i.e. when the DEG envelope for the chosen path closes completely at the end of the release phase, the noise gate is activated and the external audio input is cut. The audio input is still effected by the filter envelope.
An external input can easily be filtered without having to hold down a note by setting up a patch with all the oscillator tones turned off, but the DCO 'level' parameter set to full. If you use the note 'Hold' function and press a key the audio input will be audible and can be processed with the filter etc.

Input Level Knob: Its a knob that controls the level of the audio input. What more can we say?


Essentially VCF FM allows you to modulate the filter cutoff at audio frequencies to create all kinds of clanging cross modulation and bizarre alien splatters & sweeps. This effect works best with the resonance cranked up into self oscillation which is where the new resonance knob mod comes into its own. The audio input takes its signal from before the input level knob so you can use the audio to modulate the filter cutoff but remove the actual audio signal from the mix.

Also installed is a brand new internal memory battery to keep this machine running for years and years without losing your presets!"

Studiologic Sledge 2.1 Virtual Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Studiologic Sledge is a fantastic looking, taxi-cab yellow virtual analog synth with amazing sonic possibilities, including traditional waveforms (sawtooth/pulse/triangle), FM, sync, Waldorf wavetable synthesis, and the new Waldorf sample library. Traditional knobby layout with oscillators feeding into mixer, filter, amplifier, with ADSR controls, flexible modulation possibilities, arpeggiator, FM, white/pink noise, oscillator sync, flange/phaser/chorus, and delay/reverb effects.

Software has been upgraded to version 2.1, which allows layering of sounds, or keyboard split, with different sounds split at user selectable split point. Delay and reverb can also be combined in version 2.0 and up.

In addition to the firmware upgrade, the Waldorf Sample Library license (an additional 99€ option) has also been installed, along with samples from the Waldorf library, bringing this Sledge fully up to spec with the new Studiologic Sledge 2.0 on the market."
