Leave - A 90bpm bon voyage patch for eurorack synthesizer


Published on Apr 1, 2016 Luke Killen

"I managed to squeeze in one last patch before I left. so Here is is. Back to patching in two weeks."

New DASZ Instruments Teaser Pic


You might remember Dasz Instruments' announced a new hardware instrument here and here. We now have our first glimpse of the hardware spotted by Soviet Space Child.


DASZ states: "We weren't quite ready to go to #Superbooth16 We are working very hard right now to prepare for the #Musikmesse"

What's interesting about the image is it appears to be two separate units lined up, however they are different.  Once has knobs up top and a headphone jack while the other doesn't.  The headphone jack obviously implies there is a sound engine onboard or audio runs through it.

"Hybrid Future"
presented by Native Instruments and Electronic Beats

Feat. Stephan Schmitt, Robert Henke, Roger Linn, Julian Parker, Tony Rolando
Moderator: Peter Kirn

"While discussions continue around the dichotomies of analog, physical, and digital instruments, visionary instrument makers have been bridging the gap between these previously separate realms with cutting edge ideas that combine the character and expression of tactile control, with the infinite possibilities and ease of software – the best of both worlds. Will hybrid concepts and setups turn into a benchmark development in instrument design? And how could it already be changing how we create and perform music? Join a panel of distinguished technology pioneers and creatives for a roundtable discussion dissecting the status quo and the possibilities of our Hybrid Future."

Roland GAIA SH-01 Virtual Analog Synthesizer Demo


Published on Apr 1, 2016 Kraft Music

http://www.kraftmusic.com

"Scott Tibbs from Roland plays the GAIA SH-01 virtual analog synth at Kraft Music.

With its massive sound, hands-on ease, and affordable price, the Roland GAIA SH-01 synthesizer delivers high-performance value with old-school charm. This instrument has kicks out huge sound with three virtual analog engines onboard, each with a dedicated oscillator, filter, amplifier, envelope, and LFO. At less than 10 pounds, the GAIA SH-01 is lightweight, compact, and great for musicians on the go. However, the 37-note keyboard is full-size, so performers can play naturally and comfortably."

Arturia PolyBrute - Polyphonic Minibrute


Published on Apr 1, 2016 midierror

"Minibrute owners should know you can change the Arp mode to a sequencer using SYSEX..but what you may not know is that another command gives the minibrute 3 note polyphony.

You can find the Sequencer / Arpeggiator SYSEX information from the beginning of the video here here http://hackabrute.yusynth.net/index_e..."

What is interesting about this is the Minibrute is a single oscillator analog monophonic synth with sub oscillator so you wouldn't think this is possible. The single oscillator does support three simultaneous waveforms, saw, pulse, and triangle. I'm curious what it's doing. Divide down paraphony, somehow playing each waveform separately? An easy way to test that would be to see if the waveform controls for one wave-shape affects all notes or just one.

New BugBrand Modular Frames


via the BugBrand mailing list:

"This is a compact yet powerful set of building blocks for synthesis - ideal as a basis for classic Subtractive approaches, but able to jump way outside such parameters.

One voice, two voice, chaos, burbles, drones and so much more - play it standalone or drive it from external modular/controller.

I'm not currently planning on offering any form of true-modular choice - these setups are purely pre-configured.
This not only works for me on a production basis (self-contained designs kept in semi-regular production with fixed parameters) but it is also something of a reaction to the vast array of choices musicians face today - take the instrument and its 'limitations' and work it rather than thinking instantly on what extra modules could be added.
(though, as I say, it thrives on external control - I've used Kenton Midi-to-CV, Roland 184 poly-controller, Korg SQ1, Arturia BeatstepPro plus, of course, other Bug-Bits)

These will certainly be in production through the rest of 2016 and hopefully beyond. The initial run is of 60 and these will be finished up in batches of 10 (likely roughly 1.5 months between batches).

And looking beyond - design ideas are already well underway for a companion 'Expander' frame (which can easily be joined to the existing frame) containing such niceties as S/H, Noise, RingMod and different Oscillator models. Yes, I do feel the need for Seq/Clock/Control/Effects modules too - but those should come in frames 3 or 4 (could be a couple of years before such things).

So, wishing you all Happy Spring times.
All best for now, Tom"

Module list via BugBrand:

"The SynthVoice combines the following modules:

Dual Envelope - two Voltage Controlled Attack-Decay/Release Envelopes which can be Gated, Triggered or set to loop (oscillate). Fast and Slow(/Slower) ranges cover audio or LFO territories (down to c.40Sec per cycle in Slower mode) - the independent Up/Down control gives very different sonic results from the regular VCOs.

3 x Compact VCO - small but powerful, stable and accurate Voltage Controlled Oscillators covering Audio and Sub-Audio ranges with four manually swept waveforms. Each Osc features precise Tune, Fine and Octave switching along with polarizing Exponential FM, 1V/Oct input and Sync input.

Dual Filter - a twin Filtering unit built around State-Variable Filters which offer Low/Band/High responses with variable resonance up to self-oscillation (which tracks 1V/Oct). The left-hand filter can be switched to sub-audio mode for glide, differentiation, or low-frequency sine-waves.

Dual Amplifier - these not only cover your standard VCA duties (DC-coupled, naturally, so fine controlling audio or sub-audio signals), but each integrates a switchable wave-shapping post stage - Wave-folding on the left, zener soft-clipping Saturation on the right.

Dual Mixing - two sections to mix your signals. The top two channel DC mixer allows polarized mixing, while the Main and Sub mix combines three inputs into two independent output audio buses with balanced 1/4" jacks.

Powered Frame - the system's exoskeleton not only provides a strong housing, but also holds the internal power conditioning and distribution - an external worldwide 12VDC supply is converted to internal bipolar +/-15V and distributed to each module. The DC input and 0V grounding point are mounted on the left-hand side of the back.

All modules follow the Frac-Rack standards (multiples of 1.5" width, 5.25" height, max 1.65" depth) and feature PCB material front panels for clear, eye-catching and durable appearance."

Live Jam #28 - Techno / Ambient - Arturia Microbrute and Eurorack Modular synthesizer


Published on Mar 31, 2016 TRM

"I forgot to write down any patch descriptions on this one. I remember the kick and hihat are from Peaks. There is a lot of feedback from the a199 spring reverb filtered by the wasp. The LFO from the microbrute is advancing the a160-2 clock divider. Some divisions trigger envelopes on the Quadra, creating a rhythmic drone by modulating the dixie II and uFold.

Stuff used:
Arturia Microbrute and Eurorack modular system with:

Doepfer: a-118, a-119, a-124, a-143-4, a-148, a-156, a-160-2, a-199
Intellijel: Dixie II, uFold, Quadra, 2xTriat , Linux, mult
Make noise: MMG, Lxd
Mutable instruments: Peaks
MFB: Dual LFO
Synthrotek: Echo

Audio via the Behringer mixer to a Moto Ultralite MK3 hybrid.
External effects: T.C electronics M350 for delay.

No post processing."

How To Use Mutable Instruments Peaks and Warps as an ENV/VCA for Braids


Published on Mar 31, 2016 Genshi Media Group

"I've had a couple of people ask me how to do this. In the Modular world the Envelope and VCA are separate, unlike the fixed synth world where your 'ADSR' is connected to the VCA.I recently got Peaks to use as an ADSR Envelope on my Braids module, but was wondering why it wasn't working as an ADSR should. And I wasn't able to find any tutorials on how to get this to work; DIVKIDVIDEO's excellent demo of Peaks just briefly mentioned that it is plugged into the Braids "Timbre" input, but this didn't give me the true ADSR result I was looking for... and then I remembered, WARPS can be used as a VCA!"
