Low-Gain Elecronics 2-Bits Examples demo 1

Published on Mar 1, 2016 LowGainElectronics
Update: Re-Published on Mar 1, 2016 LowGainElectronics

"In this video I'm demonstrating using the 2-Bits as a preset voltage for DC offset of a sequence coming in from the Verbos Voltage Multi-Stage. I also used the Trigger output on the 2-Bits to fire an EG provided by the MakeNoise Maths which is being sent to the 'Effect' CV Input on the SynthTech E950 CircuitBent VCO.

950 VCO into LXD into ADSRVCA into ProOuts into Protools: processed via 1/8note simple delay and reverb."

The MIDI Thing (TMT) - MIDI over Bluetooth Wireless Bridge For any MIDI Device

Published on Feb 26, 2016 TMT Kickstarter

Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, The MIDI Thing is essentially a single MIDI IN/OUT cable with a bluetooth adapter in the middle. You plug in the MIDI IN and OUT ends into your MIDI keyboard or controller of choice and it becomes a Bluetooth MIDI controller.  Curious if it will work with MIDI OUT ports only, or do you need to loop it back into a MIDI IN port for any reason? Some keyboards like E-mu's XBoards only have MIDI OUT port.  I'll see if I can find out.  Here's a demo of it with an iPad:

Man Against God, God Against Nature (Audulus 3 FAWM2016 Album)

Published on Mar 1, 2016 Tim Webb

Get Audulus for: iOS | Mac | Windows/Linux

"This is the culmination of the massive Audulus 3 patch I've been working on in February! [see this post for previous videos] You can download the patch here:

Inspiration for the album:
Music has always had a tradition of blending storytelling with applied philosophy. Or at least, at its greatest, it aspires to do so. We can never hear the first songs of mankind, but we can guess what they were about. The earliest stories undoubtedly revolved around the struggle of man against nature. Then Gods against man. As we cast about today we find a narrative in which Gods and Man are mutually forsaken, and Nature is I'm totally fucking with you. This is ambient. I just tried to make some pretty bleeps and bloops.

Vintage Concert Photos of Larry Fast Performing with Peter Gabriel

via The Bob Moog Foundation

"Pioneering synthesist Larry Fast (Synergy, Peter Gabriel, Nektar, Tony Levin) and concert photographer Brad Owen have joined forces to provide 50 sets of two rare signed and numbered photos of Fast in concert with Peter Gabriel to the Bob Moog Foundation.

The two photos are exclusive to the Bob Moog Foundation and capture Fast on stage during Peter Gabriel's first solo tour in 1977. He is surrounded by a bay of synthesizers and other equipment including both Moog and Oberheim instruments. The vintage images evoke a period feel, and are bathed in purple and red hues from the stage lighting.

The set of the two photos can be yours with a $100 donation, made here.

'It is an honor to have counted Bob Moog as a long-time friend,' recounts Fast. 'I used his instruments extensively throughout my musical career. Their design and sound served as an inspiration for my work.'

In addition to the photos, supporters will receive a copy of Fast's second synthesizer album, Sequencer.

Read more about the offer and donate here.

Quantities are extremely limited.

Many thanks to Larry Fast and Brad Owen for their support of the Bob Moog Foundation, and for making this opportunity possible!"

OSCar Vintage Synthesizer w/Original Manual +Step Up/Down Transformer

via this auction

via the seller: "This is from my private collection, I purchased this beautiful holy grail of synthesizers in England, 2002. It was overhauled by now defunct FX Music Control in England, all of its internal components were tested, then only replaced as necessary. It has the original 220v power cable, which I use with a step up/down transformer to run off USA 120v.

Included is also another rarity which is an original copy of the owners manual. This synth is in 9.5/10 "near mint" condition and is 100% fully functional. It is missing 1 knob cap for the LFO Amount potentiometer. You will not find a better OSCar than this!

It comes with factory MIDI as well and has the latest version OS installed. This is a very rare opportunity you will not find again. Pics are of the actual unit for sale. This wonderful machine has been very well cared for in my private non-smoking professional studio. Serious buyers only please."

"El sintetizador Yamaha DX7 (la versión original) en 1983 incursiona en el mercado y es producido hasta el año 1986. era instrumento más novedoso de la época por ser digital: (afinación estable, sonido más "limpio" que el analógico), emplear la síntesis FM, tener MIDI y ser polifónico. ¡Uno de los instrumentos más exitoso!

WMD Test Lab Performance - T2

Published on Mar 1, 2016 William Mathewson

"Inspired by our good friends over at Old Blood Noise Endeavors, we here at WMD decided to start a video series of our own highlighting modular gear and guitar pedals in an improvised live performance setting.

We call it the Test Lab in order to continue the vibe with our new product demo series and really focus on exploration of gear and sounds. The idea is to improvise, test ideas, and test the features and functions of certain pieces of gear and to give you an idea of why we make the gear we make the way we make it.

In this first episode, WMD's T2 (Tyler Thompson) gives a performance using a full setup of Eurorack modular including the new unreleased Aperture filter and Performance Mixer and a bunch of other stuff.

This performance took place in our warehouse in front of thousands of parts we use to make the instruments Tyler was playing.

The main modules he used were the WMD Synchrodyne, Bastl Knit Rider, HexInverter Mutant Drums, and some unreleased WMD modules including the Aperture filter and Performance mixer.

OS X Kitten App for Elektron's Anlog Rhythm

Published on Mar 1, 2016 Jakob Penca

"this shows mixing patterns & kits with the free Kitten app for OS X.
excuse the stray button-pressing sounds at the beginning...

get the app here:

The following guide hopefully explains the whole thing sufficiently:

you can do the following things by pressing a pad/trig button:
copy a sound from any kit into the current kit (pad chooses which track)
copy sequencer track & sound from any pattern to the current pattern AKA MEGAMIX (pad chooses which track)

on the FX track:
SYN: enable/disable kitten - this also disables/enables internal triggering of the pads, respectively.
SMP: choose between kit (0) and pattern (1) mode
VEL: choose source kit/pattern (1-127) - note that 128 is not available.
