Roland JP08: Modulated

Published on Jan 2, 2016 bitleyTM

"Live tweaks on the Roland JP-08 front panel: It's actually lovely to tweak after getting used to the pretty small footprint. Here, we modulated the JP-08 realtime by passing its signal through the Alpha Juno clone Rack Extension (Reason) "ReDominator". After that, we also modulated the ReDominator's Chorus rate and envelope settings with a Matrix Pattern Sequencer. So in all, it's like a giant polyphonic modular system running, using just three 'modules'. The JP-08 is a wonderful box!"

DO IT! Live Modular Synth Performance (feat. Shia LaBeouf motivational speech) @obrienmedia

Published on Jan 2, 2016

Shia LaBeouf sample comes in at 6:29 but the build up is worth it. Surprisingly, it works really well in the track. If you aren't familiar with Shia LaBeouf's "Just Do It" motivational speech you'll find it below. No one knows if it's for real, he's "crazy", or if he's pulling an Andy Kaufman.

"This live modular synth performance is the set I put together for Modular On The Spot - a live synth meetup that took place on the banks for the LA River in Los Angeles on December 17, 2015.

The patching breakdown:

The clock source is Intellijel’s Metropolis. Mutable Instruments Clouds was the only module used in the beginning as I played the QuNexus. The main filter throughout the song was MakeNoise’s MMG, filtering both LP and HP.

The low drone bass tones come from The Harvestman’s Hertz Donut. I composed a small choir track in Kontakt and exported as a file to loop on the QuBit Nebulae. Melody being played on the QuNexus is from Braids, with Intellijel’s ADSR generating the envelope.

Bass line sequenced using MakeNoise’s Brains and Pressure Points.

All drums are Hexinverter’s Mutant Bassdrum, HiHats and Clap. Lots of triggering with Delptronibs Triggerman, and a group of 4ms modules: Quad Clock Distributor, Quad Pingable LFP, Rotating Clock Divider, Shuffling Clock Multiplier w/ Breakout.

Noise Engineering’s Basimilus Interitas was the module added to the drums to give it a punchy texture before adding in Shia’s voice.

I used the audio from this YouTube video for Shia’s Motivational Speech, made it into a file as a track in the QuBit Nebulae: I used Expert Sleepers Disting for the delay on his voice.

Sequencing track during Shia’s voice was done by MakeNoise’s Rene and the sound source was Noise Engineering’s Loquelic Iteritas.

The rhythmic noise cluster during the second half of the track involves Mutable Instruments Warps and Braids, ALM’s Dinky’s Taiko, QuBit’s EON, bass tone from the Hertz Donut then morphed it into a ducking compression with Audio Damage’s Kompressor.

All sounds mixed out through Sputnik Modular’s 6-Channel Stereo Mixer, send in stereo to Ableton Live for master file creation for YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook and Instagram.

I recorded with video with a GoPro Hero 4 then manually synced the video with the audio in iMovie.

All modules were inside a 12U Gemini 0104 case from Monorocket."

ARP OMNI 2 Synthesizer - Fully Serviced / Restored

"This Omni has been fully serviced and restored to full working order by Wes Taggart at All of the official ARP Field Service fixes have been applied. Every single one of the tantalum capacitors have been replaced with brand new electrolytics. All failing or suspect IC’s have been changed. All of the sliders have been broken apart, cleaned and re-lubed with Fader Grease. They travel as nice and smooth as you can get with the old CTS faders in this era of ARP synths. The (often missing) slider caps are all original and included!!"

SynthSpa Custom Red Roland Junior 106

via this auction

"Here's a Roland Red Junior 106 that we made this month. It's exactly like a Juno 106 but smaller and more compact. The outside is totally new and perfect. The inside has received the standard 'Full survival restoration' and is set to last a decade or more. Every circuit board was restored and all the standard issues of the 106 were addressed. Voice chips are excellent with the SynthSpa guarantee ! It also has a copy of the best of the best sounds installed for peak inspiration."

I believe the first Junior 106 was by Henrik Nydell. You can find previous Junior 106 posts including video here.

FYI, I created a new SynthSpa channel label for them moving forward.

Prototype MIDI-CV box for Novation Circuit

Published on Jan 2, 2016 Jason Hotchkiss

"A quick demo of sequencing analog gear using Novation Circuit and a compact MIDI-CV box I am working on. The gear used is a CB55 drum voice board (DR55 clone from, Moog Minitaur, Pittsburgh Modular System 10.

The PCB shown here is a prototype, but I hope to have them on sale soon. It has a 3.5mm MIDI input jack so a simple stereo 3.5mm cable can connect it to Circuit's MIDI output. I've been working on bus powering it, but an external supply is used for this clip.

Support two mono channels with Note CV, Gate, Velocity CV (one for each Circuit synth track), and four drum gates (one for each Circuit drum track). Also an additional drum accent gate (when any
drum triggered at max MIDI velocity) which can double as a clock out.

Built around PIC16F1825 microcontroller with MCP4728 Quad 12-bit I2C DAC with on-board charge pump used to get full CV range.

I hope to have these on sale soon on my Tindie store ... watch this space

Cheers for watching!"

"Today's musical journey has lots of noise in it. Drums from the EMX1, Beatstep Pro sequencing a Mode-esque bass line on the Mopho. Drone from the Werkstatt, and some funky leads and noises from the System 1m and Microbrute. It is what it is. All the System 1m effects are coming only from that unit. The Werktstatt and Microbrute are going through the Roland RE-301 Space Chorus."

Devil Fish- True Profressionals

Published on Jan 2, 2016 TB-303 Devil Fish

"Just for fun, live acid breakbeat jam! Using the Devil Fish with the Overdrive knob(the amount of oscillator sent to the filter) turned up to 4 where 2 is the TB-303 normal setting, this gives the Devil Fish a larger than life aggressive bass tone. Running it through the Boss Metal Zone distortion pedal with distortion at a low setting, with the level and eq set to add to the grunt. I also have the Headphone Out of the Devil Fish routed back into itself via the Audio in to filter, which when I flick the Audio In to Filter switch on momentarily, you can hear it frequency modulate and squeal a little.

The Tr-606 is receiving Accent & note CV data to the Dynamic Bank Switching ins, from the Devil Fish which is turned on later in the jam.

Gate Out from the Devil Fish, and Headphone Out from the 606 to a 12 stage frequency divider are the clocking sources for the Eurorack modules René, Metropolis, and the Trigger Riot which are all modulating the Phonogene with the Sample from Scooby Doo (cartoon). The Metropolis modulates the Devil Fishes Filter freq In, the Trigger Riot triggers the Slide In and the High Tom from the 606 triggers the Accent in.

The TT-303 Bass Bot has a clean signal path (all effects its running through are in bypass mode)

The TR-8 has a small role with a noise hit and hand clap, and also the intro kick drum."

"Just trying a quick ambient/experimental track on the Teenage Engineering PO-16 Pocket Operator Factory..(Say that 5 times fast!) It reminds me a lot of my Ensoniq Mirage. Just gritty, analog filtered, 8 bit, noisy output, over processed sounding. There is a lot of reverb on this demo, I probably could of dried up the saturation a bit. But the sounds ended up sounding better with it. Give it a minute or so. This is a fun little unit. Unlimited variations on the quick. The buttons however are hard to remember all their dual functions..."
