Valhalla DSP Shimmer card for Tiptop’s Z-DSP

Valhalla DSP Shimmer card for Tiptop's Z-DSP from Tiptop Audio on Vimeo.

"After the release of the Halls Of Valhalla Z-DSP card we thought things couldn’t get better then that, but Sean hit us again with this killer Shimmer card, I plugged it in and wow, this thing is an instant pad generator inside my modular. In this patch two Z3000 are mixed and sent to a lowpass filter and into the Z-DSP running Valhalla Shimmer. This is an all Tiptop system with an exception of the beautiful Cwajmen MMF-6 filter. The pitch is played by the Z8000 that is triggered manually by the Circadian Rhythms. Very simple patch to give you a simple idea of the potential of this card."

Synthrotek MST Expressor - Eurorack Expression Pedal Interface

Published on Mar 3, 2016 synthrotek

"The MST Expressor allows you to use expression pedals with your modular, taking a "hands-off" approach to expand your control and creativity. It has two identical powered expression pedal processing units in one handy module, allowing you to do things such as:

- Control volume with your foot
- Attenuate CV or audio if no expression pedal is plugged in
- Add positive or negative voltage with the flick of an ankle:
- Sweep a filter cutoff
- Transpose CV
- Pitch bend
- Direct audio volume control
- Attenuate and expand external CV
- LFO rate adjustment
- Modulation amount control
- And more...


- Processes audio and DC signals
- Two discreet expression pedal input channels (1/4" TRS jacks)
- External signal (audio or CV) input per channel
- Precise output adjustment: attenuator/scale control per channel
- 3-position switch select of +5V, -5V or 0V (mute) per channel
- External input bypasses the switch voltage (the switch voltage and external input are not active at the same time, i.e. the voltage will not offset your input signal.)
- Red/green LED per channel (red = positive voltage, green = negative voltage)
- Compatible with passive TRS 1/4" expression pedals, such as the M-Audio EX-P


- Current draw: 28mA on +12V; 28mA on -12V
- Width: 8HP
- Module depth: 24mm"

"On this one I am using the SQ10 & Q960 sequencers. The SQ10 is playing the MS20 side of my MS20/MS10 hybrid 'Frankensynth'... the Q960 is playing the Minimoog. The Q960 is the 'master' here and the SQ10 is the 'slave' (...a little custom modification I made to both units to enable that function...!) The SQ10/MS20 are running free and I am tweaking the Moog side of things for some variation... :)"

Rephazer - Analog Four Firmware 1.22 Try Out

Published on Mar 3, 2016 Rephazer

"Hi guys, Just a little live jam with the Elektron Analog Four which I bought a couple of days ago. Unfortunately I had to sell the OP-1 and got rid of the Novation Circuit as well to finance this thing, but I think I really do have the 'Elektron Virus...'

What a great machines!

Anyway, I flashed the latest firmware which features (along with a lot of other stuff) a 'random probability condition' that I already use a means for example that you can put steps in the sequencer and they play only 20% of the time.. great stuff for variation :)

This live recording features a lot of that random probability stuff so it's not really a new Rephazer song, but more about messing around with my new toy and it's new Firmware.. :)

I hope you enjoy it, feel free to leave comments and subscribe for more stuff."

Dave Smith Instruments Begins Shipping OB-6 Analog Synth

The new DSI OB-6 in conjunction with Tom Oberheim is now shipping! Remember to check prices with the MATRIXSYNTH sponsors on the right. I do not get a commission from them, rather they support the site directly, so please support them in return.

Here is official press release from Dave Smith Instruments:

"Highly Anticipated Tom Oberheim/Dave Smith Collaboration Now Available

San Francisco, CA—March 3, 2016—Dave Smith Instruments today announced that the OB-6, a new 6-voice analog synthesizer with discrete VCOs and filters developed in collaboration with Tom Oberheim, has begun shipping. Boasting a sound engine inspired by Oberheim’s original SEM (the core of his acclaimed 4-voice and 8-voice synthesizers), the new instrument is designed to provide true, vintage SEM tone with the stability and flexibility of modern technology.

Said Smith: “It’s been great fun working with Tom to create this synth. People are going to be blown away by how awesome the OB-6 sounds.” Added Oberheim: “The classic, unmistakable SEM tone is all there. It’s big and bold and it’s going to turn a lot of heads.”

The OB-6 features two discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) per voice, with continuously variable waveshapes (sawtooth and variable-width pulse, with triangle on oscillator 2). There is a classic SEM-inspired state-variable filter (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and notch) per voice. Voltage-controlled amplifiers complete the all-analog signal path.

Present also is X-Mod, with filter envelope and oscillator 2 as modulation sources (with bi-polar control). Destinations include oscillator 1 frequency, oscillator 1 shape, oscillator 1 pulse width, filter cutoff, and filter mode. The knob-per-function front panel puts virtually all parameters at a user’s fingertips. Toggling on the Manual switch enables live panel mode, in which the OB-6 switches to the current settings of its knobs and switches.

A dual effects section provides studio-quality reverbs, delays (including standard and BBD), chorus, and faithful recreations of Tom Oberheim’s acclaimed phase shifter and ring modulator. The effects are digital, with 24-bit, 48 kHz resolution, but a true bypass maintains a full analog signal path. Additionally, the OB-6 features a multimode arpeggiator and a polyphonic step sequencer with up to 64 steps (and up to 6 notes per step) plus rests. It allows polyphonic keyboard input and can sync to external MIDI clock.

The full-size, four-octave, semi-weighted keyboard is velocity and aftertouch sensitive. Said Dave Smith, “As with the Prophet-6, we made size a primary concern on the OB-6. It’s the right mix of power and portability and it fits right in on-stage or in the studio.”

The OB-6 is manufactured and sold by Dave Smith Instruments. It has a US MAP of $2,999."

Electribe 012 Processing the Monotribe

Published on Mar 3, 2016 Computing.Sound

"Thanks to tarekith for the idea to do parallel processing with the Electribe 2. [featured here in order]

Check out his videos, they're really good and in-depth.

The Korg Monotribe is routed into the Audio-Input of the Electribe 2.
On the first eight pads OSC TYPE is set to "409 Audio In".

Each part is filtered. 1 by a low-pass filter, 2-7 by a band-pass and 8 by a high-pass. These filters are modulated by mod type 67 Random.
Additionally the IFX is on and set to 24 Short Delay.

On the master I used 01 Mod Delay.

Recorded this with my phone and a Zoom H-5."

Modular Jam 48

Published on Mar 3, 2016 ngarjuna

"Patch Notes:

Guitar Loops
Guitars performed and recorded by the fabulous Rich Prewett before being chopped and mangled

Lead Voice
The Rene pattern starts to feedback (via Woggle CV from the Wogglebug being fed Rene's pitch output and clock) at around 4:30 or so. From there the pattern continues to bend and wind as the attenuator gets wiggled until it gets snapped back to the familiar refrain

The patch itself consists of Rene driving the STO and Rubicon which are cross modulating:
Rubicon's sine is going through the uVCA (enveloped by Intellijel ADSR) into the STO linear FM
STO's sine goes through Optomix ch 1 enveloped by Maths into the TZFM input on Rubicon (full CW so not through zero)
The cross modulated output of the STO is additionally shape modulated by SUM out from Maths (which includes some offset and some PEG) and piped into the Optomix ch 2 enveloped by other Maths with Sequencer 1's LFO providing Damping modulation

Unlike most of my patches this one has not been subjected to any post processing: no reverbs, no delays or phasers; processing only seemed to obscure the nicer details of this particular patch.

West Coast Bass Patch
STO vari out to Optomix 2 enveloped and struck by Maths. STO sine out to Timbre input. Dynamic (uVCA opened by Woggle stepped out) FM from Sputnik 2
Timbre modulated by Maths
Optomix 1 opened by Intellijel ADSR and Damp modulated by Sequencer 1
Sequencer 1 LFO modulating Maths fall (Optomix ch 2)

East Coast Bass Patch
Rubicon square out and some noise from the Quantum Rainbow put through the Post Lawsuit Filter into the AJH Minimod VCA enveloped by Minimod EG and Intellijel ADSRs with some gentle PEG'ing and Pittsburgh Oscillator LFO'ing

Robot Humming Patch
In Kaivo I ran modulating Compressor Hiss through the metal string and one of the chambers
Then that rich timbre dancing mess got put through Array where the spectral filtering was sequenced

Pluck Patches
Fairly straightforward Ngarjuna Make Noise plucks: STO FM'd by Rubicon into Optomix, add Maths and PEG
The alternating line with the more common 3 note pluck is a variation using the two Sputniks cross modulating through the Timbre and into the other Optomix channel. Quantum Rainbow provided some additional modulation

Acid cooked in Klanghelm SDRR
Drums in Spark (electronic) and Jamstix (shakers and hand percussion)

and of course my trusty Tektronix 422 scope providing the trippy light show."

After Hours - Three synth Jams

Published on Mar 3, 2016 GForce Software

"Good hardware and good software should always play well together.

Here are three examples of what we get up to after-hours as the sun sets and we start to wind down. The first two tracks are totally live improvisations using both software and hardware instruments, while the third track was initially recorded as a live 808, Oberheim 8 Voice & Modular synth jam, before several extra overdubs were added.; again, some software and some hardware.

Because it all has to come from the music, we don't only use GForce plug-ins either and here you'll find other good food from plug-ins such as Soundiron's Emotional Piano, Spectrasonics' Omnisphere & Stylus, iZotope's Iris, plus the AAS Lounge Lizard (through iZotope's wonderful DDLY), all sitting alongside impOSCar2, Minimonsta and Oddity2.

For the hardware fetishists, instruments include the Roland Jupiter 8, Oberheim 8 Voice, Prophet 5, Yamaha CS-80, Roland TR-808, Minimoog, Moog Sub37, EMS AKS, Simmons SDS-V, Roland SH-101 and a modular synth so special we daren't speak its name.

All music by GForce's Dave Spiers."

moogmemory by Matthew Bourne

An all Memorymoog production.  The release is also available on vinyl and CD.

"'Daniziel' is available now as a free download. Click on the link above!

All downloads include two exclusive bonus tracks, Jacqueline and Meniscus.

'Moog is a regal breed of synthesisers that are slightly untamable, which is why we (musicians) love them. Always on the edge of boiling over; taming one’s Minimoog was like riding a wild mustang, and bringing it to heel. When the polyphonic Moog Memorymoog first appeared in 1982, it was like having a team of six mustangs pulling a stage coach, its power was thrilling, and everybody had better get off the road to let it through...

'Its name was derived from the Apollo-era, onboard computer memory needed to save patches - once one had laboured with its 18 oscillators, modulation possibilities, and the gorgeous ‘Mooginess’ that lives within its filter circuits. The sheer amount of electronics under the hood of a Memorymoog made it literally pump out hot air; making her prone to pit stops and custom updates as the years went by.

'I first met Matthew Bourne, a prodigious improvising pianist, who was fascinating to watch as he took that conventional instrument ‘off road’ in an emotional sweat. Post-gig, and still wild-eyed, he made a beeline for me, having heard that I also owned a Memorymoog. Matt was keen to compare notes, and to discuss the fact that he was having the Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM) conversion done to his (this is the Memorymoog equivalent of open heart surgery, which replaces 1,300 components over eight weeks of bench time, costing as much as a new machine). I immediately thought that Matt was insane. Some years later, moogmemory is Matt’s paean to this living, breathing machine. No other instruments are used on the album, and its capabilities are drawn out by this extremely empathetic musician: beautiful, brooding landscapes of thick impasto to translucent sunbursts; Dr. Bob would be proud!'

Grendel DC-2e Drone Commander 2 - Eurorack (official)

Published on Mar 3, 2016 EA78751

"This video walks through getting started with the Grendel DC-2e Drone Commander 2, beginning with using the Main Module by itself (0:30).

Next, see how to control it from a MIDI keyboard, using the Expander module and a MIDI-CV converter (3:40).

A self-patch that gives additional filter modulation is demonstrated (5:35). After that, one of the MIDI-CV converter’s auxiliary CV outputs is patched in to control DC-2e’s LFO rate with the MIDI mod wheel (7:00).

The next section demonstrates VCF 1’s self-oscillation (8:35), including how to cancel the filter’s self-oscillation so only the dry tone of the VCOs is heard (9:50). Then, VCF 1 is set up as a third oscillator, creating a constant-pitched drone note to accompany melody played on the VCOs (10:50).

Last, some examples of pitch modulation using the MOD knob are shown (11:40), leading to full-on crazy town."
