Roland MC-8 Sequencer Malfunction w/ Sequential Pro-One Synth

Published on Feb 22, 2016 peahix

"My MC-8 is ailing at the moment, which means that when I turn it on, it does it own bit of 'micro-composing.' Here it is connected to my Sequential Pro-One synth."

5'32". Take that 4'33"! Most exciting sequence ever. It's definitely putting a ton of thought into it.

Spectralis 2 Squarepusher cover (Ernest Borgnine)

Published on Feb 22, 2016 MIDERA

"This is probably my favorite Squarepusher song. If it's not a perfect replica, relax, it's not supposed to be. I bet some notes are off and I'm sure the drums are entirely wrong (I came up with them in the last hour). Everything you hear is from the Spectralis 2 alone (plus Eventide Space for reverb).

I really wanted to test out my Spectralis 2 after I fixed the 24db LP filter (i.e., cut out a component from the PCB board). So here is my test!"

AniModule synth Integrated in realtime to traditional Songwriting workflow with MPC1000

Published on Feb 22, 2016 JRock17991's channel

"Check out our modules at:
Integrating a Modular synth in realtime to a traditional Pop / Rock Architecture songwriting workflow. A lot of demos show a self contained patches and often a progressive / unconventional genre of music. I was working on a song and integrating my AniModule eurorack in realtime (without sampling and chopping, just live via the MIDI to CV Converter) and thought it'd be nice to show a demo of how easy that is and how it works."

Published on Feb 22, 2016 DivKidVideo

"Here's the seriously cool rhythm generator, groove maker, random gate, ratcheting, delay, custom swing, clock divider super module the Varigate 4 from Malekko Heavy Industry. It's had loads of use since it went in my rack and video will demonstrate just a few of the patches I've been creating with it. It's fun and importantly for me while formulating ideas and creating patches ... it's fast!

noyzelab's NYZ DRN4 Limited Cassette Release


Full details and additional SoundClound embed at noyzelab.

Excerpt for the archives:

"This is the first release by NYZ and is a superb musical collection of research areas classified to internal Noyzelab operations. Not even .MEDS label were informed of the secret processes underlying its creation, excepting that we know it involved Frequency Modulation (FM) synthesis! We have not been given any information regarding when this work was recorded, but we suspect the material spans at least a decade of David's FM algorithm research on numerous synthesizers, as well his own custom built ear deceiving gear..."

Maxi-Korg + (SQ1 x 2) + KR-55

Published on Feb 22, 2016 taigkyo

"Testing Kenton's Maxi-Korg CV retrofit to make sure everything works - it sounded cool so I recorded it. This is not a finished track - just twiddling knobs to verify installation was correct.

No reverb or effects, just the Maxi-Korg and KR-55!

KR55 drives two SQ1's - one controlling pitch/gate of upper and lower voices - the second controls HPF and LPF cutoffs. Cutoffs are shared across both voices... These could be controlled independently if I had another SQ1..."

Roland TR-8 (909-mode) + OP4 1.1 (Ableton, Max4Live) Demo by Jordan Passmore

Published on Feb 22, 2016 Jordan Passmore

"This demo is of the Roland TR-8 Drum Machine (with the TR-909 kit loaded) and Ableton Live DAW (with OP4 Max4Live patches). Ableton Live is sending sync signal via USB to the TR-8 and the audio of the TR-8 is sent straight into my audio interface (Roland Super UA). The TR-8 is completely devoid of effects while the two instances of OP4 (a four operator FM-based Max4Live synth designed by Katsuhiro Chiba) is being ran through ValhallaDSP's UberMod (delay) and VintageVerb (reverb). One synth patch is the bassline, the other the melody. These three instruments were mixed in Ableton Live."

Kingdom Of The Worm - live beatless electronica, 303, Korg Volca Keys

Published on Feb 22, 2016 Tony Horgan

"An original track, ambient (ish), live, one-handed, played on a Korg Volca Keys, Korg RK-100S keytar and two Cyclone Analogic TT-303 Bass Bot synths. The Roland TR-8 is not heard here - it sets the tempo and sends MIDI Start/Stop messages. I had no time to set up a tripod, so I filmed with one hand and played with the other. Mixed and recorded very simply on a Tascam DP24. I used the Tascam's internal delay effect but no compression or EQ this time."
