A Q&A Session with Dave Smith

Published on Mar 15, 2016 Nashville Electronic Music & Synthesizer Group

Fascinating bit on the ability to create new Memorymoogs, CS80s, etc starting at 10:45. The OB-6 took DSI and Tom Oberheim less than six months to do as the backbone with the Prophet-6 was already in place. The Oberheim based voice boards with filters just needed to be designed in.

"At this year's third meeting, the Nashville Electronic Music & Synthesizer Group skyped with the synthesizer legend Dave Smith about the recent release of the OB-6, the past and present days of DSI and Sequential, future plans, and much more.

Filmed on March 10, 2016, at the SAE Institute, Nashville, TN.

New Arcano Systems Gem-8 Retro 8-bit Computer and Chiptune Synthesizer on Kickstarter

Published on Mar 15, 2016 Arcano Systems

"Gem-8 is an 8-bit, WiFi-enabled personal computer and chiptune music synthesizer inspired by the home computers of the 1980s. Back the Kickstarter campaign to receive Gem-8 as a reward."

Arcano Systems previously brought us the MIDI NES Chiptune Synth as well as the Obscura MIDI 8-bit Chiptune Synth.

Details via Kickstarter:

"Gem-8 is an 8-bit, WiFi-enabled personal computer and chiptune music synthesizer inspired by the home computers of the 1980s like the Commodore 64, the Apple IIe, and the ZX Spectrum. This 8-bit AVR-based personal computer features 256-color VGA video output, PS/2 keyboard input, audio line output with 8-bit quantization, 8 digital input/output pins, and a serial expansion port to connect peripheral devices.


Processor: Atmel Atmega1284

RAM: 16 kB

Video: 256-color VGA

Keyboard: PS/2 (compatible with IBM PC AT scancode set 2)

Audio: 8-bit-quantized line out (standard stereo connector with same signal in both channels)

Peripheral Interfaces: serial expansion port + 8-pin female GPIO pin header

Two peripherals have already been created for Gem-8: a WiFi card and a MIDI interface. The WiFi card allows Gem-8 to connect to the internet using the preloaded serial terminal application. Gem-8 is particularly well suited to accessing online multi-user domains, text-based multiplayer online games, and bulletin board services that use the Telnet protocol. The MIDI interface peripheral connects a MIDI keyboard or other MIDI musical instrument to the Gem-8 computer, allowing users to create their own C64 and NES-video-game-style chiptune music using the preloaded chiptune synthesizer application. The Gem-8 chiptune synthesizer application also features video synth visualization capabilities. Currently, the Gem-8 synthesizer software features 8 waveforms and 4 effects settings for a total of 32 unique patches.

[Middle Pic: Gem-8 MIDI interface and Gem-8 WiFi card (based on the ESP8266-12 WiFi module)]

Using additional applications included in Gem-8 OS, users can set the digital states of 8 output pins, which can interface with external components like LEDs and relay modules. Gem-8 users are also able to set the duty cycles of up to 8 pulse-width-modulation signals, which can be used to control servos or to vary the intensity of external LEDs.

New High Density Modules From Grove Audio

via Grove Audio

"Several new modules combining dual and quad functions in one module will allow 2 complete full function 5U voices in only 8MU of panel space.

The update GMS-742a MIDI to CV Converter offers up to four channels of 16 bit CV outputs and 4 gate outputs. The module can produce up to 4 polyphonic control outputs.

The GMS-302 Dual VCO combines two VCOs with a 4 simultaneous waveform outputs and a selectable WAVE output that is chosen from one of five possible waveforms. The VCO has internal adjustments that allow the octaves to be calibrated accurately. The WAVE output also feeds an internal VCA, the control input of which is available on the panel. This allows amplitude control with an external CV without additional modules.

The GMS-709A Dual DADSR generates ADSR envelopes with an optional starting delay. The range of timing for the attach, decay and release is one millisecond to 10 seconds. The amplitude range of the ADSR waveform is 0 to 5V either plus or minus polarity, linear or exponential, and single shot, looping or gated operation.

The GMS-204 Dual Multimode Filter allows the user to select from one of 16 possible filter configurations with 1 to four poles and including low pass, bandpass, high pass, and all pass (phasor). Each filter has a voltage controlled resonance control and two exponential voltage controlled frequency inputs, 1V/Oct and adjustable.

The GMS-714 Ouad VCA has four high quality voltage controlled amplifiers that can be set for either logarithmic or linear control response. Each control input has an attenuverter that allows positive or negative control voltages. In addition, pairs of amplifier channels can be combined for a panning function. There is an internal 4 channel mono or two channel stereo mixer."

Circuit Benders Modded ROLAND TR77 Analogue Drum Machine with MIDI

via this auction

"For over 15 years we have been creating and supplying aural havoc with rewired childrens toys, modified drum machines, abused samplers and audio insanity machines, but as space has become a prized commodity here at the circuitbenders bunker, we've decided its time to shift some of the massive and ancient behemoth drum machines that have gathered over the years

First to go is this Roland Rhythm 77 or TR77 as it was also known. The TR77 was the first machine to ever be released under the Roland name way back in 1972, and it bears a remarkable similarity to the Bentley Rhythm Ace FR8L, mainly because they are more or less the same machine!

The TR77 is one of those massive 'sit on top of your organ' (no sniggering at the back please) type of drum machines that were popular in the 70's. Theres absolutely nothing digital in this thing, and that includes the remarkable pattern generator circuitry for the 28 onboard drum patterns that can be selected via the front panel buttons. Several buttons can be selected at any time to combine patterns for more complex rhythms.

There are 13 fully analogue sounds onboard, most of which are generated using old inductor-capacitor 'tank' circuits. You cannot get much more analogue than this without hitting something with a stick!
The sounds include Bass drum, Snare, Low Conga, Low Bongo, High Bongo, Rimshot, Cabasa, Clave, Tamborine, Cymbal, HiHat, Maraca and Guiro.

Our upgrades include:

Midi triggering for each of the 13 sounds. The midi channel can be selected using the 16 position rotary knob on the rear panel. The midi doesn't sync the patterns, but if you wanted to do that then you might as well rewrite them via midi triggering and then you can alter them as you want.
Internal pattern generator on/off switch: This is the new switch on the rear panel. It disables the pattern generator board when you are using external midi triggering so that clicks and pops caused by the internal pattern triggers are silenced.
Recapping: All of the electrolytic capacitors in the machine have been replaced and upgraded. The originals were not only underspecified, but were also about 20 years past their reasonable working life!
Power supply rebuild: The original internal power supply circuit on these units is appalingly bad, and causes a ridiculous noise floor of AC hum and interference making a normal TR77 almost unusable in any modern context. We've pulled out all the junk that was in there and replaced it with a more or less silent modern power supply. More details on this mod can be found HERE.
IEC mains socket: The new power supply runs on any common mains voltage, so we've added a standard power cable socket that can be used anywhere in the world.
A red LED: We drilled a hole in the wrong place. Now its got a power LED in it. ;-)
The standard TR77 features such as the variable fade out button, the various individual level faders and the fantastically pontless 'up tempo' switch are still in place and fully functional.

You can here a quick demo of a TR77 being triggered via midi on our soundcloud page [above]"

My Make Mutable Live Performance System

Published on Mar 15, 2016 Genshi Media Group

"This is a simple example of me manually playing my small Eurorack setup. I wanted to explore how I can play this as a self-contained instrument with no sequencers or external effects. I only wish I had two (or more) Make Noise Pressure Points in order to have more than 4 notes to play... and speaking of Pressure Points, the top row of knobs/tunings is being sent to the Mutable Instruments Rings module, and the middle row of knobs/tunings is being sent to the Mutable Instruments Elements. So when I play a touchpad on the Pressure Points, it is sending two different tunings to the two Modules. If I had a third voice, I can send the bottom row a different tuning as well.

• Make Noise Pressure Points
• Make Noise Richter Wogglebug
• Intellijel Buff Mult
• Mutable Instruments Elements

A Tribute to Keith Emerson from The Bob Moog Foundation

A Tribute: Thank you, Keith Emerson

Published on Mar 15, 2016 moogfoundation

Be sure to read Michelle Moog-Koussa's tribute to Keith as well.

"Keith Noel Emerson (November 2, 1944 - March 10, 2016). Remembered with the highest respect and gratitude for his formidable musicianship and his unparalleled contributions to bringing modular synthesis to the fore of rock music, a combination that changed the sonic landscape.

Rare archival photos by Mark Hockman, courtesy of the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.

'Close to Home', written and performed by Keith Emerson, available on iTunes."

via Michelle's tribute:

"And herein lies the weight of writing about Keith Emerson’s passing. My connection to him, our connection, is multifaceted, rooted in his musical relationship to my father and in my personal and professional bond to my father and his powerful legacy. When asked on several occasions by interviewers if my father were a musician, he would firmly reply no, that he was a toolmaker, and “I make tools for musicians.” This was an inherent acknowledgement that his technological creations were but silent machines unless musicians released their vast capabilities to the listener. The best musicians, starting with experimental jazz composer Herb Deutsch, astonished him with their pioneering efforts to weave early modular synthesizers into their music. Although Wendy Carlos was the first to bring the vastly expressive but technically complex Moog modular synthesizer to the popular consciousness (thanks to her musical prowess and painstaking technical achievements), it was Keith Emerson who dared to not only perform live with the instrument in front of tens of thousands of people each night, but to do so while using it as a featured voice. Keith pioneered the use of the Moog modular in a live rock context while fearlessly bringing it and other electronic keyboards to the fore of the genre."

Description pulled from wikipedia:

"The SP-1200 can store up to 100 patterns, 100 songs, and has a 5,000-note maximum memory for drum sequences. It also has a mono mix output and eight individual outputs, MIDI in/out/through, SMPTE sync, and a metronome output. There is one button that allows you to select between banks A, B, C, and D, which gives the user easy access to each of the 32 sounds. The front panel contains several LED lights, buttons, and eight volume and pitch faders for each sound in the selected bank. Below each fader is a large button to initialize the sound, or select the sound for editing, and a switch to turn the trigger's velocity sensitivity off or on. The sequencer works in the familiar pattern-style of placing short consecutive sections of samples into a song. The user can easily add swing quantization and tempo changes. The sequencer can sync the tempo to SMPTE, MIDI, or analog clock pulses and is also capable of synchronizing the tempo to a tapping finger with the tap-tempo button.

Unlike the SP12, the SP-1200 does not contain ROM-based samples; all samples are stored in volatile RAM and loaded from floppy disk. The AD/DA converters remain 12 bit, as 16 bit converters were still expensive and found only on high-end gear, such as the contemporary E-Mu Emulator 3 (EIII), which had a list price of over $15,000 USD. Maximum sampling time was doubled from the upgraded SP-12 Turbo, to over 10 seconds, but the maximum single sample was 2.5 seconds. The sample rate was reduced slightly also (from 27.5 kHz to 26.04 kHz) to maximize memory usage. The SP-1200 retains all of the I/O capabilities from the SP12, minus the cassette output and floppy disk I/O"

'The E-mu SP-12 was the spiritual successor to E-mu’s 'Drumulator' and was originally going to be produced under the name Drumulator II, however shortly before the sampler went into production its name was changed to SP-12. The name SP-12 stands for sampling percussion at twelve bits, demonstrating the power of the sampler. The E-mu SP-12 is credited with helping usher in the era of digital sampling by being one of the first digital samplers in production, and allowing musicians to take digital sampling in a completely different direction...'"

FieldScaper 1.4 To Include Looper Mode

iTunes: FieldScaper or bundled with SouncScaper.

via Motion Soundscape:

"New version FieldScaper 1.4 will have new advanced looper mode for convenient use this application in real-time sound mangling.

FieldScaper - an advanced field recorder combined with a sound warp engine and a collection of ready to use dynamic presets for iPad and iPhone. Discover new ways to create and construct unusual and exciting sounds from any environmental audio recordings or samples recorded from other apps through Inter-App audio or Audiobus.

The 'Looper' mode changes the user interface to more convenient use of application in real-time and processing external sources. Use the button 'Looper' on the main screen to switch on this mode. For return to the main screen use the button 'Scaper'.

In this mode you can fast switch the presets and samples for each of oscillators. For oscillator there are five assignable buttons for presets and samples. First oscillator can be fast selected for processing of any external sound sources (include IAA and AB) in one of four modes.

Please note: In the 'Looper' mode application does not create any files when processing external sources.

The four buttons are selecting the processing mode for external source.

'Effect' - In this mode the input signal will record to the loop and oscillator is playing back this loop at the same time. The speed and direction of playback can differ from recording depending on current preset.

'Overdub' - In this mode the record to the loop will be enabled when the input signal exceed specified threshold. When input signal falls below another threshold the record will be off but already recorded signal will continue playing back. The recording can be started and stopped at any time in the loop.

Tip: To shorten the time of stopping record when input signal falls below threshold you can set a lower value of 'Stop recording time' on the 'Audio input control' panel.

'Loop A' - This mode intended for auto start the record at the beginning of the loop when input signal exceed specified threshold. Next the oscillator will playing back this loop.

'Loop M' - Mode for manual start recording to the loop. The led on the 'Start' button will flashing when waiting for record start. Tap the 'Start' button to switch on the mode of waiting input signal. When input signal appears the record will start and stop at the end of loop.

When you select the 'Loop M' mode you can use input monitor when the 'Looper' waiting for start (The led marker on the button 'Start' is flashing). Set the 'Input monitor - on' mode to get source signal on the output at waiting for start. After start the input monitor will mute.

'Input' - This button opens the 'Audio input control' panel. In this panel you can set the thresholds of input signal for start and stop recording.

Above the control buttons is placed the area in which the loop record is displayed. Two moving markers point the record and playback position in the loop. Bright bars indicate when the minimum of signal is present (above -35 db). Red bars mark the optimal level of signal for processing in the scaper (above -10 db).

The five buttons below the control buttons can be assigned for selecting presets and samples.

'Assign preset' - Assign preset for one of five buttons above.

'Assign file' - Assign file for one of five buttons above.

You can assign MIDI controls for the preset and file select buttons and for looper 'Start' button. All of these controls are at the end of list which accessible on the panel 'Settings' - 'Assign'."

KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist Analog Quadraphonic Mixer Teaser

Published on Mar 15, 2016 KOMA Elektronik


1. KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist Analog Quadraphonic Mixer Teaser

"Teaser video for the new KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist eurorack module. Analog quadraphonic sound recorded with a binaural microphone to illustrate quadraphonic sound best in stereo. The video starts off with the Bastl Tea Kick which is panned to all outputs with the field control. The bassline's panning is sequenced with the Komplex Sequencer. The noise hats come in and are sequenced via sample and hold. Lastly the pad is panned around from the Master Origin from a Intellijel Dixie sawtooth wave.

NOTE: Wear headphones to experience this video correctly. This is a binaural recording of the Poltergeist in a quadraphonic room to best display its capabilities in a stereo setting. Recorded with a Neumann KU-100 binaural mic courtesy of Bohemian Drips in a quadraphonic studio with Neumann KH-120 monitors at Noize Fabrik, Berlin.

For more information refer to the product page and manual:"

2. KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist Example Patch: Crossover

"In this binaural stereo video, we illustrate the Poltergeist with the Crossover example patch from the manual. Input your synthesizer (Anti Oscillator to SVF-201 to Doepfer VCA/Doepfer ADSR) to one channel. Also take the pitch CV (which is sequenced from the Komplex Sequencer) to the Pan CV Input so the sound moves along with the melody. Komplex Sequencer Play Mode and Poltergeist Pan slope are changed throughout to evolve the patch.

NOTE: Wear headphones to experience this video correctly. This is a binaural recording of the Poltergeist in a quadraphonic room to best display its capabilities in a stereo setting. Recorded with a Neumann KU-100 binaural mic courtesy of Bohemian Drips in a quadraphonic studio with Neumann KH-120 monitors at Noize Fabrik, Berlin."

3. KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist Example Patch: Dopplerganger

"In this binaural stereo video, the Poltergeist is employed to create two alternating doppler effects. With a pitched sound going through 2 channels, use a slow attack envelope (PEG here) and connect to the Master Origin. Now take a triggerable LFO (Pingable LFO) and connect it to the VCA of both channels as well as the pitch of the VCO. Match the attack time of the envelope to one period of the LFO. Now set the Pan pot of the first channel so the sound comes from Quadrant 3 to Quadrant 1. The second channel is set so the sound moves from Quadrant 4 to 2. You will hear the same sound coming towards you from the front and from the back alternating with each other."

4. KOMA Elektronik Poltergeist Example Patch: Bruce Bickford

"The Poltergeist Quadraphonic mixer in action with the Bruce Bickford patch as found in the manual. Recorded with binaural microphone to illustrate better quadraphonic sound in stereo. Patch your hi-hat sound (in this case Doepfer Noise through the SVF-201 into the Poltergeist VCA that is CVed by the Doepfer ADSR) into a channel. Take the trigger for your hihats also to clock a S&H module that is processing noise. Then take the CV from the S&H into the channel's Pan CV to move the hihats randomly around the quadraphonic field.

NOTE: Wear headphones to experience this video correctly. This is a binaural recording of the Poltergeist in a quadraphonic room to best display its capabilities in a stereo setting.
