Spectralis 2 firmware update (V1.68) - test run

Published on Feb 2, 2016 MIDERA

"Radikal Technologies have updated their firmware for both Spectralis 1
and Spectralis 2, though this update is far more important for those
with the Spectralis 1 due to the inclusion of 'performz' folders, which
expand the total number of songs allowed on the device. Check out the
forum for the update.

Track also is made entirely of the internal hybrid synth engine and
Joerg's Spectralis 2 Sample volume 2 (I would have linked it, but I
couldn't find it available at the moment).

Eventide Space was used as well for reverb."

Published on Feb 2, 2016 Genshi Media Group

"My second day with my friend's Buchla Music Easel. After some confusion with it on the first day, it all finally came together on this second day of exploration. One note, I didn't use the Music Easel's built-in Spring Reverb because it was really muddy sounding, so I added a touch of delay and reverb using VSTs; info provided in the video. You can hear more of my music at -"

Omnisphere 2 -- Hang Drum Jam

Published on Feb 2, 2016 SpectrasonicsVIDEO

"Here's something fun! Our good friend Gulli Briem stopped by the studio today and brought his Hang Drum along with him. This was the actual instrument that we sampled for Omnisphere 2.

Eric started jamming with Gulli playing the Hang and Eric playing the same sounds from Omnisphere 2 with some of our Psychoacoustic Techniques applied. We rolled the cameras to capture the impromptu live jam.

Check it out and see if you can tell who is playing what!"

Sanxion Remix 2016 by Jason Page

Published on Feb 2, 2016

"Rob Hubbard's classic Sanxion intro on SidTracker 64, remixed by Jason Page.

Jason: 'To celebrate 30 years since the original classic, I've remixed the Sanxion C64 music - using nothing but a single SID (the same hardware as the original track was written with)

.sid and .prg here:

This involved an initial stage of recreating the whole track in SIDTracker64 (patterns and instruments), before I could then remix it.

This is a 3 channel SID file. No samples. No outboard gear.
Written with SIDTracker64 on the iPad.

Dorkus-18 Eurorack modular synthesiser patch

Published on Feb 2, 2016 Luke Killen

"This pretty patch sees a Mannequins Mangrove VCO modulated by a Abstrakt Data ADE32 and then filtered through a Sputnik Quad VCF/VCA (in VCF mode) with a Frequency Central X envelope acting as the VCA envelope and as modulation for the VCF. The 'plink' is a Mutable Instruments Rings being modulated from a variety of sources including the Absract Data ADE32 and 4ms PEG. It is being strummed by a SSF Propagate and the 1v/oct melody is from a Make noise Rene. The kick is from a mutable Instruments Peaks, the Snare is from a Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteratus, and the bass drop is from an EG modulated peaks in 'Fold' mode."

Caterina Barbieri - Vertical

Published on Jan 3, 2015 caterina barbieri

This one in via IMPREC. Recorded entirely on a Buchla 200. There is a chance there will be an LP pressing in the future.

"From Caterina Barbieri's debut album Vertical (Important Records/Cassauna, 8 October 2014) composed for Buchla modular synthesizer and vocals.

Vertical originates from a meditation on primary waveforms and the polyrhythmic dancing of harmonics in synthetic sounds, stylized in severe architectures of time and space, on the boundary between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel listening environments. This minimalistic focus arises from the exploration of the stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled synthesizers, in terms of polyrhythm and polyphony.

And some additional info via

"Vertical is Caterina Barbieri's debut album and it was composed for vocals and Buchla 200 modular synthesizer.
Vertical takes a meditative approach to primary waveforms and the polyrhythm of harmonics, stretching the boundaries between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel systems. This minimalistic focus arises from the polyrhythmic and stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled sequencers.

Synthesis, drone and immersive listening are three fundamental conditions to enhance an advanced auditory art, not based on extrinsic links but solely built on the experience of the spectrum, able to develop our very limited ability of perceiving the vertical domain of music, involving us in a holistic way.
Caterina Barbieri (1990) is a composer and performer of electro-acoustic music. Mostly interested in modular synthesis, three-dimensional spatialisation and psychoacoustic aural sculpture, her music arises from a meditative approach to primary waveforms and the polyrhythm of harmonics..

She received a degree in classical guitar and electro-acoustic music at the conservatory of Bologna, Italy (plus an exchange programme at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden) with a thesis about time, space and spectrum in vertical music. She's currently attending a bachelor in literature and she's active as audiovisual artist, acousmatic composer and guitarist. Her work has been commissioned and performed in festivals and venues of experimental music."

EMS Synthi-100 Concert Set for Saturday 23 April 2016 in Melbourne Australia

via the Melbourne Recital Center

"A first ever live Synthi-100 concert experience

Melbourne Conservatorium of Music’s emeritus tonmeister Les Craythorn will join performance staff for a first ever live Synthi-100 concert experience, including a reconstruction of ground-breaking music by Percy Grainger, which has been immortalised in the beautifully carved walls of the Salon.

The Synthi-100 is best known for the ethereal sounds behind the Doctor Who theme music and was delivered to the university from London in March 1973. The Synthi-100 is one of only 30 made in the world and following recent restoration by Les Craythorn, is one of just three that have been restored to original working condition. The Synthi-100 became the centerpiece of the Conservatorium’s electronic music studio and was used to create Electronic Music, a vinyl LP released by the university in 1975, which was edited by Les Craythorn. The record includes ground-breaking work by Peter Tahourdin, Three Mobiles, featuring ocean-like wave noises, rapid-fire beeps and UFO sounds.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music"

DreamsOfWires - watching the world go by Pt1 (Nave - iPad)

Published on Jan 23, 2016 DreamsOfWires

iTunes: Nave - Waldorf Music

"Original, more minimalistic version here:
Another recording using sounds created in Nave, which were made from mundane household objects. I like this kind of synthesis; apart from the degree of involvement and personalization it allows in the sound creation process, just making music with anything laying around that is capable of making a noise is rather satisfying. This is partly because it negates the need for expensive gadgets (excluding the iPad), but also because it reminds me of the early pioneers of electronic music, such as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and the way they produced other-worldly music using 'found sounds'. The only difference is that nowadays any idiot can do it, myself being a good example.
Piano - Wooden spoon hitting a glass bowl
Drone - Old computer fan
Recorded entirely within Nave over 2 tracks using it's built-in effects and 'Tape' recorder.
Video is of recent travels."

Published on Feb 2, 2016 DreamsOfWires

"Part 2 of 3. This is also two layers recorded entirely within Nave, but using Beatmaker 2's sequencer - I wanted to try to compose something note-by-note in Midi, like I did back in the early 2000's when I didn't even own a Midi keyboard, just a sequencer and some softsynths. It was slow-going back then.
The video is a continuation of the journey from Pt1; in this case some views of Newcastle and it's bridges.
All sounds created from scratch by me."

YAMAHA EX7 61 Key Synthesizer Workstation Keyboard SN PP01004

via this auction

An underrated synth although it does lack the Virtual Acoustic (VL) Synthesis of the EX5. It did have FDSP (Formulated Digital Sound Processing) Synthesis which I don't believe I have ever explored.


"The EX7 features a unique Extended Synthesis system which incorporates a number of the most advanced tone generator technologies currently a full-featured sampling system. It offers a Four-Element Voice structure which allows for up to four independent waves from any of the tone generators. The tone generators implemented here include AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) Synthesis, AN (Analog Physical Modeling) Synthesis and FDSP (Formulated Digital Sound Processing) Synthesis. According to Yamaha:

"AWM is Yamaha's original system for effectively using sampled waveforms in synthesizers and tone generators. The strength of AWM synthesis lies not only in its extraordinary ability to "shape" and control the sound of the samples with a comprehensive system of envelope generators, filters, key scaling parameters, modulation, and more. AWM voices can have from 1 to 4 AWM elements. Each AWM element can use a preset wave or a sampled waveform. The ability to combine AWM elements means that you can, for example, combine separate samples for the attack and sustain portions of an instrument's sound, with independent control over each.

Yamaha AN Synthesis (Analog Physical Modeling) offers all the benefits of traditional analog synthesis with the stability, reproducability, and precise control of digital technology. It is capable of accurately reproducing the sound of classic analog synthesizers without patch cables, setting charts, or the frustrating instability that was the bane of the analog age. A standard (Poly) AN voice can have 1 AN element and from 1 to 3 AWM elements. Classic analog synth type sounds can be created with the single AN element alone. AWM elements can be added as necessary to 'modernize' the sound.

Roland JUNO-106S SN 510668 with Original Roland SC-65 Gig Bag

via this auction

So, does anyone know what the Roland SC-65 was? I did a quick search and only found this previous auction post. I'm guessing back then I assumed it was the model number for the Juno-106s or I was just in auto-post mode and didn't pay much attention. Looking at the pics on the back of the Juno-106S I'm not seeing SC-65 anywhere. If you know, let us know! Note this Juno-106S needs some work:

"Unit seems to have few unresponsive keys which are 1G, 1A, 1A#, 1B, 2C, 2C#, and 2D#, which should probably do with some minor servicing as there are some sliders with slight scratch noise when controlling too.

Otherwise everything else appears to be working fine..."

Future Retro ORB CV/Gate and MIDI Sequencer

via this auction

You all know what this is, but for those that don't, or need a refresher here's the product info:

"Intuitive hands on sequencing for your MIDI and CV/Gate synths and sound modules!

The Orb is an easy to use, single track, step-based digital sequencer, ideal for controlling the XS semi-modular synthesizer as well as other analog CV/Gate or MIDI synthesizers. The Orb is also a perfect solution for controlling 303 clones which often lack the essential sequencer.

About this whistle sound I made, I used filter oscillation. Filter's "key track" woks fine but little bit of pitch fluctuation add a feeling to the sound of whistle."

The Fossils of Intention | Eurorack Ambient

Published on Jan 30, 2016 r beny

"An ambient piece for my Eurorack modular system. All sounds/effects from the rack.

Patch Notes:

Piano Sound: Mutable Instruments Rings (in symphathetic string mode) being excited by Mutable Instruments Braids in "CLOU", running through a Make Noise MMG and a Laurentide Synthworks VG2. The VG is getting a quick exponential envelope from a Make Noise Maths. Rings going through a Mutable Instruments Clouds in granular mode with audio-rate random modulation from a Qu-Bit NanoRand. As the song progresses, I slowly make the envelopes on Maths longer and turn up the wet/dry mix on Clouds. Rings is also multed to an Alright Devices Chronoblob delay.

Lead: A second Mutable Instruments Rings (also in symphathetic string mode) being excited by the same Mutable Instruments Braids in "CLOU", except that the signal is multed straight from the MMG bypassing the LPG for a constant drone. This Rings is going into a Mannequins Three Sisters filter into the high input and output and then into a Make Noise ErbeVerb.

Bass: Make Noise STO running into a second Mutable Instruments Clouds in looping delay mode on the lowest quality setting and a Mutable Instruments Streams in compressor mode.

All sequencing provided by a Korg Electribe 2 via a Vermona QMi2 MIDI to CV module."
