DSI Pro 2 Drumming

Published on Feb 17, 2016 experimentalsynth

"I was able to program quite a bit of expression into the sliders and mod wheel on this Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 patch/sequence. Here the mod wheel and two sliders simultaneously control a wide variety of parameters including multiple delay amounts, 2 filter cutoff frequencies, multiple oscillator levels, oscillator FM, filter routing and resonance. Combined with the ability to mute and unmute sequence steps and tweak parameters with its wealth of knobs, this is a very playable sequence that can morph in a number of ways. Learn more at"

By using either the bit toggle switches, you can choose from manually turning On(up) or Off(center) each of the bits or switching to EXTernal(down) gate control.

The OR output is a logic OR gate based on the status of the two bit status. Each bit and OR output has an LED to indicate it's current status. The user can choose between Gate or Trigger for each Bit feed to the OR Output via the back of the module.

The CV output has a range switch to select between a 0-5V or 0-10V range of the stage pots.

Bob Moog Foundation: John Mills-Cockell on Early Moog Modular Artists

via The Bob Moog Foundation

"Thom Holmes returns with the first installation of an exploration of some of the earliest uses of the Moog Modular in live performance. This month he highlights John Mills-Cockell, who was a member of the experimental multimedia group Intersystems in Toronto in the late 60s.

Read about Mills-Cockell's early use of the modular and hear examples of it here."

Pictured: "Intersystems, circa 1968. From left, Blake Parker, John Mills-Cockell, Dik Zander, Michael Hayden. Showing a Moog Modular synthesizer IIP with its keyboard and ribbon controller sitting on top of a Vox organ."

On a separate note, the Bob Moog Foundation continues to expand their Dr. Bob's SoundSchool education initiative.

"Our hallmark education initiative, Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, began five years ago as a pilot program in eight classrooms. Today the innovative program, which inspires children through the intersection of science, music, and technology, will serve over 85 classrooms, and nearly 2,000 students."

A bassline with the ARP Odyssey (Korg re-issue) by Jordan Passmore

Published on Feb 17, 2016 Jordan Passmore

"This is a demonstration of the ARP Odyssey re-issue by Korg. The ARP is being sequenced via Ableton. The drums and the synth were ran into my Ace Tone Mixer (with built-in spring reverb) and then the overall signal was sent into my audio interface. The only effect used was the spring reverb, and the was just affecting the ARP (when you see my tweaking a knob to the far left, that is the total amount of reverb being sent to the main mix)."

Hordijk DualFader RingMod & DualFader Panning

Two Hordijk DualFader demos from bartonmusic aka Todd Barton.

"When I read in the Hordijk manual about the DualFader module and the statement that "you can create the typical ringmodulator sound from the fifties and sixties as used by e.g. Karl-Heinz Stockhausen" -- I had to give it a whirl! Love these Hordijk sounds."

"This is a demonstration of using the Dual Fader as a panner to produce some nice spatial effects. No outboard effects just three layered tracks with internal panning via the Dual Fader. Headphones or monitors recommended."

Roland Super JX-10 Analog Synthesizer with Vecoven Mod

via this auction

"Roland JX-10 with upgraded firmware to accept MIDI CC and send/receive patches. It includes the memory cartridge for storing your sounds.

The JX-10 is a 12-voice analog monster sometimes referred to as 2 JX-8P's in one body. This thing can output up to 24 analog oscillators at once and do basic FM, keyboard splitting, has built-in chorus and can be controlled externally to act as 2 different synths. This is seriously the most affordable package you'll find for that many analog voices (12 total).

The keybed is semi-weighted with aftertouch and makes a fantastic master keyboard. It's very playable and the 76 keys span 6 octaves to allow for very versatile playing and can also be split to play two patches (or "tones" in Roland-speak) at once. So you can very easily play bass with your left-hand, and pads or lead with your right.

Some cool things enabled by the upgrade:
• MIDI CC/Sysex input
• Map 2 of the onboard sliders to any parameter
• Arpeggiator
• Custom display options

More info about the Vecoven upgrade's added features [pdf link]"

Mode Machines SID SN 308204-183

via this auction

"This amazing synth has a very hard-edged personality. It has the gritty core of the tine-honoured SID chip (first found in the commodore 64). This gives it the classic computerised, almost glitchy sounds which are both cutting and percussive. This box is for serious high-end beatmakers."

Make Noise TEMPI Pt. 6: PHASE Programming

Published on Feb 17, 2016 MAKEN0ISE

"TEMPI is a 6 channel, polyphonic, time-shifting module. It provides an intuitive method for the creation and recalling of complex clocking arrangements within a modular synthesizer system.
The primary user interface and programming elements for the module are six large, illuminated buttons:
BUTTON-1 through BUTTON-6, and two smaller illuminated buttons:PGM_A and PGM_B. The module is able to store up to sixty-four clock/timing scenarios called "STATES", arranged in four BANKS of sixteen. An LED is used to indicate the current BANK by COLOR and changes in STATE indicated by FLASHING. There are INputs for External TEMPO, a Gate INput for MOD, and STATE Selection via a CV INput (with Combo pot for attenuation) and / or GATE INput.
The primary goal of this module is to have the maximum amount of artist-controlled musical variation with a minimum amount of data inputs."
