Roland GR-300 Waveform Mod

Published on Mar 22, 2016 Expedition Electronics

"Excuse the tuning issues; I should have tuned the guitar and the synth to the guitar

Roland GR-300 mod to provide variable pulse width waveform, PWM, and filter mod from a tap tempo LFO. I did a poor job describing how it works. Essentially, as part of the pitch determination the GR300 samples the height of a ramp wave (the same wave used as second oscillator in Duet mode) on the zero crossing of the incoming signal. That means the sampled voltage gets larger the lower the frequency of the incoming signal. This sampled voltage is used as the reset point for the main ramp oscillator. Therefore, that voltage is equal to the peak voltage of the oscillator sawtooths (ramps, really). So, the servos figures out how much to attenuate that sampled, relatively stable, voltage to bring it to a constant level and applies the same attenuation to the oscillator waves. Thereby, making the output of the oscillators have a fixed height as they would in a normal synthesizer. From there, standard synth stuff to do PWM."

Video Equations: Colour Video Synthesizer

Video Equations: Colour Video Synthesizer from Cat Full of GHOSTS on Vimeo.

The Video Equations video synthesizer is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter here. This is a project by Cat Full of GHOSTS' Roberto Jordan, who I am happy to say, happens to be a supporting Member of MATRIXSYNTH. See the kickstarter campaign for additional details including the different reward levels.

"The Video Equations system utilises the power of mathematics to yield rippling lo-fi seas of colour, acid trip roguelikes, glitching fractals, visions of an 80's techno dream and worlds of crashing computer programs, all from a single, beautiful unit.

Equally at home in the studio, lab or on the road this colour video system is ready for take off!"

Some additional details via the Kickstarter campaign here


16 colours, hundreds of characters and symbols
20+ different equation archetypes each with two modifier sliders and a colour depth control for literally millions of unique stable or evolving visuals
colour and character offset knobs for even more control and variation of output
4+ variable size masks, each with an invert function and mask fill options
9v battery or wall wart operation (wall wart not included)
7 X 0-5v CV inputs for modular control of all sliders and knobs
picture mute and equation hold functions for expanded live use
composite NTSC output (PAL users can buy a NTSC to PAL converter to integrate it into their PAL system. There is a cheap one for sale here.) The jack on the synth is BNC but comes with an RCA adapter.
Kit and build options:
Available as a fully built and tested unit or as a DIY kit with all the components (all thru-hole components). Both kit and built unit come with a rugged acrylic and plywood base."

MI Elements and Clouds Journey

by bartonmusic aka Todd Barton

"This is a super simple patch slowly manipulated in real time with just a couple of knob twists. I'm surprised with depth of textures and sounds possible. Only a pulse going into the Gate of the Mutable Instruments Elements and a random CV into the 1v/Oct of Clouds, that's it. Oh, headsets or studio monitors suggested."

Published on Mar 17, 2016 Ron Feinberg


1. OB6 Rough Improv
"A rough improv with my new OB6 on my second night with it. Nothing spectacular...but it showcases how good it sounds. Just having fun, and figuring things out. Its VERY different sounding than the Prophet 6! OB is Creamy and Raspy to use a few adjectives."

2. OB6 Looping
"Everything you hear except percussion is the new OB6. Loops were pre-recorded in real time into an RC505 an Octatrack direct from the OB6. Performed in real time."

3. OB6 Looping 2
"All OB6. TR8 percussion."

Shapes In Space - Vintage Buchla 100 Album by Benge

Published on Mar 22, 2016 zack dagoba

"A video to accompany the album "Forms 5 - Shapes In Space" by Benge

Album available here:

See http://myblogitsfullofstars.blogspot.... for more info"

"This album was made using a Buchla 100 modular synthesiser system from the 1960s

No other sound sources were used, or any external processing. The pieces were built up by layering different tracks upon each other, a technique known as 'sound on sound' recording

I deliberately wanted to avoid using regular harmonic, melodic and rhythmic elements on this record, preferring to let the Buchla speak its own very particular language
released February 15, 2016

Track 1 - Bifrustum - 10.56
Track 2 - Nonagon - 8.37
Track 3 - Anitiprism - 15.19
Total running time: 35.52

Memetune Studios, UK
