KORG minilogue MIDI test : playing with MIDI keyboard (KROME88)

Published on Jan 31, 2016 karenevil

"After the initial test drive I placed my minilogue just above the KROME 88 and patched to my system including MIDI IN and OUT.
In this video I'm playing minilogue from KROME.
Also trying to MIDI clock sync then both KROME's drum and minilogue's sequencer are synced perfectly."

Buchla Music Easel - First Rough Test

Published on Jan 31, 2016 Genshi Media Group

"First off, this isn't mine; a trusting friend let me borrow it for a few days. Second, out of all the synths I've ever played - from an ARP2600, to a Fairlight CMI IIx, to Eurorack Modulars - this Buchla Music Easel is the most confusing thing I've ever tried to get a sound out of! Really baffling the way it works! This is my first 10 minutes with it, and I almost wasn't going to upload the video, but since I only have it for a few days, I wanted to document my first encounter with it. Hopefully in the next day or two I will have a better demo before I have to give it back..."

"So I'm currently kind of starting a new little project which will be more dark technoish again, even tough I don't know if I'll be able to play it anywhere. And while my XBase is unfortunately broken, I'm using the octatrack as a supplement.

Equipment this time..

ROLAND PROMARS Analog Synthesizer 1978 | HD DEMO

Published on Jan 31, 2016 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2016 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the original Roland Promars. Its excellent sound qualities can not be really simulated by software. The original hardware Promars is soundwise not comparable with the new "plugout" software.

I played the Roland Promars with reverb effects from a Lexicon MPX-500 and delay effects from a Korg SDD-3000.

The Roland Promars is a programmable monophonic analog synth. Basically it's a monophonic version of the Roland Jupiter-4. But on the Promars, you have 2 VCO's per voice, not 1 VCO like on the Jupiter. VCO 2 is always identical to VCO 1 except tuning (same volume, same suboscillator, same waveform).

2 VCOs, 2 suboscillators, 24 dB lowpass filter, non resonant highpass filter, 2 envelopes, noise generator, extremely fast LFO with many waveforms, 8 memory locations to store own sounds and a powerful classic Roland sound makes the Promars a great synthesizer."

Modular Jam 43: "I'm Listening To Reason"

Published on Jan 31, 2016 ngarjuna

"Bassline was constructed using Medic Cranial Saw and Rubicon into the Minimod voice (VCF-EGs-VCA) sequenced by Audio Damage Sequencer 1

West Coast generative sequence was produced using Sequencer 1 to modulate Wogglebug's clock and Woggle's stepped out to modulate Rene's pattern. The voice involved one channel of the Optomix receiving shape modulated STO and the other receiving through zero FM signals from the Rubicon folded through the Nonlinear Circuits Timbre, both enveloped by Make Noise Maths.

The pitch-less howling voice is a cross mod between the two Sputniks through the Timbre and the Optomix (again, Maths). The random gate out on Wogglebug is used to piss off the 4ms PEG's action toggle which is feeding CV to the additional CV in on one of the swarming beehives...erm Sputniks

Drums in Arturia Spark (electronic) and Jamstix (percussion)"


"This cheerful little tune was done entirely with sounds only from Mutable Instruments Shruthi-1 synthesizers. The original sketch for this song had more of a chip-tune / arcade game theme style, but it turned into kind of an electronic pop / trance track in the end.

I am selling one of my Shruthis (with a 4 Pole Mission filter board), so I wanted to record one song that showcases this fun little synth before I give it away. There is one pad sound, for which I sampled the notes from a Shruthi with a SSM2044 filter board. All other sounds, including drums and FX, are from the 4 Pole Mission Shruthi.

Multitracked on a BOSS BR-600 without MIDI, then mixed with Tracktion 6 DAW on Linux. The drum sounds and a pad where sampled from the Shruthi and then sequenced in the DAW.

Effects used: Delay and Chorus from the BR-6000, Calf Vintage Delay, zita-reverb, ZamComp, Tracktion Chorus and EQ.

Crumar Stratus 6 Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer SN 00042

via this auction

"The Stratus is a 6-note polyphonic analog that uses the highly popular CEM chips that have also been used in other popular synths of the time including Jupiters, OB-X synths, Prophets—even modern Dave Smith Instruments. The Stratus has a total of two oscillators (DCOs), and they’re fed through divide-down ICs, just like an organ or string machine. The oscillators offer saw and square waveforms, or a mix of the two, and a mono/unison mode. The two oscillators can be tuned separately and synced. A unique option is the "Alternate Saw/Sq" mode which alternates the voices between square and sawtooth waveforms—play a chord and some voices will be square, others will be saw, or bang out a solo and each note will be a different waveform—definitely unique but maybe not always practical."

Dave Smith Instrument Pro-2 controlling modular synths.

Published on Jan 31, 2016 Magnus Gladén

"My friend brought his Pro-2 over. We decided to have some fun. We use the Pro-2's OSC's and sequencer. The Pro-2 is also controlling the modular synthesizers envelopes and Q960 sequencer. We filter the Pro-2 thru the modular. The modular synth also makes the kick drum as well as trigger the Korg MS20 which is making the snare drum"

Bass Station II & Clouds Parasite - Oliverb mode

"Bass Station II & Clouds Parasite - Oliverb mode
Easy to install - great to use!
I just wanted to make a short video to show my friend how to enter in Parasite modes. I ended a little bit later. It sounded too good to stop!
Also, I really wanted to pass once more the BSII through Clouds - I missed this!"

Futurama: Moogfest vs Simpsons: Hapsichordfest

This one spotted by creekreee who had the following to say:

"The Futurama Facebook page posted a short video called 'Happy backwards day'. This is essentially the intro to each show, with a special intro music that was used on only one episode.

The video is horizontally mirrored, thus the caption, which is unique for each episode, is not as easily readable.

I took a screenshot and mirrored it again - and guess what?

The caption says

Futurama: Moogfest
Simpsons: Hapsichordfest"

I found that interesting and thought I´d share it with you. (I guess there is a typo in there.. 'as' should probably read 'vs')"

Creamware Prodyssey ASB ARP Odyssey Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Creamware Prodyssey ASB is a highly accurate digital re-creation of the ARP Odyssey. It not only re-creates the sound of the the original Odyssey, but recreates the control panel too. Playing and programming this synth really feels like using an analog synthesiser, but with added benefits such as 12-note polyphony and MIDI control.

Probably one of the best and most sought-after vitual analog synths ever made."

Chamber Pressure - Gayane Adagio - Khachaturian

Published on Jan 31, 2016

"Aram Khachaturian's beautiful 'Adagio' from Gayane's Ballet.

Mostly famous from it's use in Kubrick's '2001-A Space Odyssey' in the voyage to Jupiter sequence.

The large format 5U modular synthesizer is played live with a midi file from Cubase.

Three voices are sequenced by a MOTM 650 and Q104. Each voice consists of a full resonant filter with other vco's stacked and blended behind the filter sine waves. The lower third voice is a MosLab 901 suite with Oakley Discontinuity and Q106 through a MosLab 904 Moog ladder. The upper two voices are Q106's through a Suit&Tie Guy Post-Lawsuit Low Pass and an Oakley SVF in low pass.

The atmospheric noise behind the voices is a patch mixture of pink noise and ring-modulated pitches from the lower voice. The pitch tuning is purposefully skewed off-pitch to rise and fall between the two ring modulated vco's (SSL 1200 & 1130 DDVCO). They are sent through a MOTM 440 VCF which is also highly resonant with pitched FM. Then on to the Encore frequency shifter which is again pitch shifted via the note data from the lower voice sequence pattern. The finish of the patch is a two channel separation of the Up and Down outputs of the Encore FS into a Modcan 73B dual delay.

A final addition of Valhalla Shimmer is applied to the atmospheric patch in Cubase. Other delays to the main voices are two Lexicon dual reverb/delays and a TCElectronics D-Two.

All recorded in one pass at once. Thanks for listening and reading along."

"Patch Based Around Mutable Instruments Rings and Noise Engineering Variatic Erumption.


Sound Machines DC-1 as master clock supplies 4MS QCD. Clock divided and fed to VE hit inputs/clock, Qu-bit Nano Rand, Modcan Quad LFO & SSF Ultra Random. VE Channel 1 clocks Modcan Touch Sequencer. Channel 2 to Nord Drum for Percussion. End of sequence from Channel 2 chokes channel 1. Channel 2 is choked by by Random gates from Qu-bit Nano Rand. Stepped output from Ultra Random to pattern input of VE.
Modcan Touch pitches Mutable Rings, strum input on Rings from Randomised trigger output on DC-1 (density populated by SSF random output). Extra triggers provided by DC-1. Tiny Hats sequenced by cv’d QCD output.


Custom Percussion created on Nord Drum 2. Rings as Lead/Bass.Pad created by mutable braids (swarm model) through Addac 601 and filtered. Bands cv’d by Modcan Quad LFO. Noise Risers by SSF Quantum rainbow (white noise) and processed by Modcan dual delay. Hi pitched drone made from frozen chord in Mutable clouds. Pitched sounds made from Make Noise phonogene modulated by SSF URA with a very high grain rate and shifted by QCD. Tiny hats SSF QR (purple noise) through Intelligel HexVCA. Simple melody from ALM Akemie’s Castle with two mixed sine waves mixed and phased to give slight chorus effect. Multiplier cv’d by SSF URA stepped output to create random pitches. Stabs made from custom samples created for Music Thing Radio module, randomly cv’d and triggered by Make noise LXD. Output then fed to Qu-bit RT-60. This is randomly sequenced with triggers and delay is added by Modcan Dual Delay.


8 channels output to Soundcraft Mixer (one channel on mixer used live to fade). Eventide Space on Send. Mixed panned, fed through Logic to record, PSP vintage warmer strapped to master bus to glue things together.


All Eurorack modules except Nord Drum 2 and Eventide space :)"
