Published on Jan 11, 2016 RADIOKLOW

"JBK, Portrait of a friend and artist.
This piece of music was composed as a tribute to my friend, Jean-Baptiste Kempf. Visual artist in computer, Jean-Baptiste Kempf creates is own images and films by complex programming. We worked together a few years ago to produce a video composition called = Meditation : [posted here]

This composition was performed on Virus TI by Marc-Henri Arfeux. The video was also created by Marc-Henri Arfeux"

Spectralis 1 Beta Jam



"During a betatest I often create new music. Most bugs occur, if you really work with the synth and if you simply produce some music. I created some basic Spectralis 1 pattern and did some overdub improvisations with the Accelerator above the backing. The Spectralis 1 is equipped with the factory soundset from 2004 only. It still sounds fresh after all these years;-)"

Synthrotek MST MIDI to CV Module


Published on Jan 11, 2016 synthrotek

"This is a quick, rough demo of our new MST MIDI-to-CV Module and some of it's functions. We show how you can send MIDI information from your DAW (in this case, Ableton Live) and use the MIDI to CV convertor of our module to control a Eurorack system. We also demonstrate sending information back the other way to your DAW; for example, using an LFO in your Eurorack setup to send a Square Wave out to the MST MIDI-to-CV module, which can then be used to change the tempo of your DAW. We also show how you can use the MST MIDI-to-CV module on other gear, like the Korg Volca Sample."

Moog Source funk bass live tweaking


Published on Jan 11, 2016 SynthMania

"One might think that the lack of knobs on the Moog Source could make the synth slower to program. Actually, the extremely high responsiveness of the 'big knob' makes programming in real time just about as fast as one-knob-per-function machines! :-)"

An Evening with Dave Smith at Pyramind | Video Recap


Published on Jan 11, 2016 Pyramind

http://www.davesmithinstruments.com

Part 2 below.

"On November 12th, Pyramind welcomed a true legend to our facility. The one and only Dave Smith, founder of Sequential Circuits and Dave Smith Instruments who is often referred to as the Father of MIDI.

During An Evening with Dave Smith, which you can watch in it’s entirety, you will get to hear what the new Sequential Prophet-6 synth is capable of in the hands of it's creator. The Prophet-6 is Dave Smith’s tribute to the analog polyphonic synth that started it all—the Sequential Prophet-5. But it’s not simply a reissue of a classic. Rather, as Dave puts it, “It’s the result of our effort to build the most awesome-sounding, modern analog poly synth possible.” The Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5—true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers—and adds enhancements such as studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and more. The result is pure, unadulterated analog tone with the stability and reliability of a state-of-the-art modern synth.

NAMM: New Yamaha Montage AWM2 & FM-X Synthesizers

Update: cleaned this post up a little (note below).

Another one in via Soviet Space Child via this site. Scan via sequencer.de.

"Yamaha Montage Synth, Based On Entirely New Technology

YAMAHA’S NEW MONTAGE synth offers unprecedented ways for keyboard players to control and interact with sound.

For more than 40 years, Yamaha has developed industry-leading synthesiz-ers, from the revolutionary DX7 in the 1980s to the renowned Motif series, one of the best-selling synthesizers of all time. The Montage, available in 61-, 76-, and 88-key configurations, features the Motion Control Synthesizer Engine, a powerful and intuitive way to interact with and control sound.

The Motion Control Synthesizer Engine controls two iconic Sound Engines: Advanced Wave Memory 2 (AWM2) and FM-X. Compatible with previous generation Motif libraries, the AWM2 engine is exponentially more powerful than the previous Motif XF flagship with nearly ten times more wave memory, integrated flash, double the effects, and twice the polyphony. Joining the powerful AWM2 engine is FM-X. A sophisticated pure FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesizer engine is capable of producing classic ‘80s or cutting-edge EDM sound with excellent dynamic range, power, and fidelity.

Montage also features a brand new user interface with color touch screen, endless rotary encoders and the Super Knob: a macro control allowing users to control multiple parameters simultane-ously.

‘Montage is the culmination of over forty years of synthesizer legacy and innovation,’ said Nate Tschetter, mar-keting manager, music production, Yamaha Corporation of America. ‘Playing and experiencing Montage is, quite simply, inspiring.’

Below is the original blob of text I was confronted with from the source site. This was before the scans went up.

VATER TACKY SACK VATER PERCUSSION’S new Tacky Sack Grip Enhancer, the first product of its kind to be marketed to the drumming world, features a sack of grip-enhancing rosin powder that absorbs moisture and provides drummers additional control of their drumsticks while performing in humid and sweaty conditions. Gently “clapping” hands on the Tacky Sack applies rosin powder to the palms. A cord is included to hang Tacky Sack from a snare drum, stick bag, or hard-ware. “Once again, Vater knows just what I need, even before I do,” said Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg. “Especially in intense, sweaty environments, Tacky Sack allows me to lose myself in the vibe of a song without worrying if I’m going to send a stick flying from my palms. My grip relaxes, and I’m better able to avoid carpal tunnel-like problems. Tacky Sack lets me thrash with com-plete control.” Marilyn Manson’s Gil Sharone added, GRIP ENHANCER YAMAHA’S NEW MONTAGE synth offers unprecedented ways for keyboard players to control and interact with sound.

New Electro-Harmonix Super Space Drum and Crash Pad


Published on Jan 11, 2016 EHX

"EHX’s rich history was marked by many revolutionary pedals but one of our most distinctive lines was a group of analog drum synthesizers that included the Crash Pad and Super Space Drum.

Like the original from 1980, the new Crash Pad can create an array of drum sounds and other-worldly oscillation sweeps, as well as process external sounds thru its resonant filter. Plus, it’s been updated to respond to expression pedal/CV input for external control over the filter in real-time.

A faithful reissue of the cult-classic released in 1979, the Super Space Drum uses analog synthesis techniques to create mind-blowing sounds ranging from deep kicks to high toms to sci-fi drums. Trigger it from the built-in pushbutton or an external (non-MIDI) electronic drum pad. Pass external sounds through the gated amplifier via the aux input. The Super Space Drum lets you create, control and manipulate a stunning array of synthesized sounds."

LushOne Mini Modular Hybrid Digital Analog Synth




via this auction

"A nice little mini modular with a good selection of features -
2 DCOs each with 5 waveforms and a CV input. One useable as an LFO
2 ADSRs
1 LPF with 1 input and 2 CV inputs
2 Square+Triangle LFOs
1 Gateable square LFO
2 VCAs
2 Ring Mods
4 RCA Breakouts and 1 MiniJack breakout
1 Joystick controller with button out
1 noise source
1 sample and hold
4 imput signal mixer
Midi in

I think that's about it...

It's quite a fun piece of kit - good fun to use with a eurorack modular, or just freerunning on its own.
Here's a quick play around from today with it patched to itself doing some some fake stereo panning using the two VCAs and LFOs. The only external effect was a little bit of reverb [embedded above] - For some reason the ADSR knobs work in reverse - no idea why. But it's like that on both for some reason.

Powered by a 12v wall-wart type power supply which I'm including, and about 30 mini-banana patch cables and all topped off with a bunch of 1900 type knobs.."

David Bowie Tribute - Space Oddity by Jordan Rudess


A beautiful tribute by Jordan Rudess was just added to the bottom of the main post here.

RIP David Bowie


Published on Mar 6, 2014 Halloweenjack84

Good advice for life as well. David Bowie lived it, and gave many of us the freedom to live it right alongside him. He is a hero in the truest sense. One of the most famous, yet kindest human beings on earth. His influence is quite literally beyond measure. It isn't just his music. More than anything it is permission to be whoever the hell you want to be and the permission to tell anyone who judges you to f off, all the while being kind about it. No apologies, no time wasted. Think about that a bit. He will continue to give freedom to countless generations to come, simply by being the person he was. I love his music, I cherish what he gave us, and I love how he did it - he made it cool to be yourself while at the same time being kind, tolerant, and compassionate towards others. He was the best of the best, and I love him for that.

Thank you captain. If there is existence after death, I hope you are enjoying it as much as we enjoyed your existence here with us.

---

On the synth side of things, because this is a synth site after all, I was curious how many posts mention David Bowie. I knew there would be a few. It turns out there wasn't just a few, but a whopping 77 posts total. That from a man not known for synths. Many of the posts are repeat references to Bowie's use of the stylophone and other synths, but there are some true gems there. Spend some time looking back on his influence on the synth world. He touched everyone. The following is just a handful of tributes from the synth community. If you have any to add, please feel free to leave a comment below.

The sounds are nothing special just to demonstrate the functionality
JU-06 : Preset with the Sequencer
JP-08 : Preset and i recorded (midi) a chord in my Daw and looped it.
The app Tb midi stuff is not a expensive one and i can really recommend it.
It is possible with the software to convert the sysex in midi cc 'IraVirus' has realise that in his JP-08 template.
I hope that would help some people who are interested in this kind of stuff ;)
Best regards, Creamtronic"

The Plan....The whole point was to design a series of small boards that could be used as building blocks as well as individual modules. They can be mounted on a panel or put on a motherboard and used a single board modular. Most of the boards are designed with the i/o connectors all on one side of the board. Using 90 degree headers they can even be mounted vertically.

More information about the modules, diagrams, and mods can be found here"

Erica Synths - Dual EG / LFO


Published on Jan 11, 2016 DivKidVideo

"First thing to note that I didn't mention in the video is that the module does save it's setting while powering down so you can fire up the case and everything be just as you left it.

It's a fun unit with dual ADSR, dual AD and two LFO modes offering a looping AD or Rise, Hold, Fall LFO. You can combine any of those across the two channels for powerful little modulation device."
