"The Grendel RA-9 Grenadier is a 1-oscillator analog monosynth with CV-Gate control. It has a semi-modular design in a tabletop enclosure with 1/4? audio output. The Grenadier can be played stand-alone by using its keypad with 4 independently tuneable keys, or you can activate its onboard sequencer for minimal rhythm loops and tone sequences. Patch in a 1v/oct MIDI-CV converter (not included) and the Grenadier can play sequences from a MIDI workstation or computer. The Grenadier?s unique palette of analog tones comes from its triple bandpass filterbank with syncable modulation."

MIDI SYNC #2 - Event at the Copper Owl, Victoria, BC Canada

This one in via MATRIXSYNTH Member, Lorne Hammond:

"On the last night of March in Victoria BC Canada at the Copper Owl, named one of Canada's best small clubs, eight local midi maniacs, including supporters of MATRIXSYNTH, got together to share a master clock.

We drew names drawn from hat, cleared our memories and set out to improvise live in groupings of two, then as quartets, then all eight together. Players came from a wide range of genres. A bit of everything was in use: a TTSH 2600, and ms-20, octatrack Akira's Akai Timbre Wolf, shruthis ssm and polivoks, beatstep pros, elektron, guitar, Linn Tempest, Speak and Spell and a pitch hacked Clavia DD4, Volcas, and more. The Akai Wolf provided a common clock from a splitter box.

Here are 3 and a half hours of the results." [embedded above]

Thank you Lorne, and everyone who supports the site!

Volca FM Day 1 - With Korg Minilogue, Roland TR8 and RE-301

Published on Apr 2, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"Got the Korg Volca FM yesterday. It is extremely musical and easy to approach, even if you don't completely understand what's happening under the hood. I can't say I can make it do what I want, but I can make it do all kinds of things and that may be even better. Sometimes inspiration and order comes from chaos. In this video here's what's going on:

I'm controlling the Volca from the Mopho SE keyboard. The Volca is clock-synced from the Minilogue via the Minilogue's Volca sync output. The TR8 is synced also from the Minilogue via MIDI. Those Korg blokes are so damn smart.... The Volca and Minilogue are both running into the Roland RE-301, and get some chorus from Valhalla Ubermod.

I am only manipulating four different parameter settings on the Volca to get this huge variety is sound. There are two sliders, one for Transpose, which (surprise) transposes the notes up or down octaves, and one for Velocity control. The Velocity gives velocity info to your incoming notes played and can significantly vary the sound. I have not found a way to get the FM to respond to velocity in from the keyboard so if anyone out there knows how to do that please make a comment and let me know.

The other two parameters I'm messing with in the video are the Modulator Attack and Release. As I understand FM, you have a sine wave (operator) that acts as a Carrier, then additional waves (Modulators) that act as, well, modulators. By manipulating the modulator waves, you get a huge variation in the timbre.

Honestly, I'm not really sure what's happening on the technical level, but I do know it sounds totally bitchin.

Finally, the FM has an arpeggiator which I engage at about 3:50. Add some Minilogue lead, and later a beat from the TR8, and this little box is one of the most musical, most inspiring pieces of kit I have bought in a long time. It's just fun. Hope you enjoy."

Korg minilogue demo

Published on Apr 2, 2016 Michael Kukat

"Okay, why not? I usually don't do synth reviews because i have more clue about their inner workings than the sound quality. So this one is more from an engineer's point of view than from a musician's one, but maybe someone finds it interesting.

I usually avoid buying more studio gear because i neither have the talent nor the time to make music besides my other hobbies, but Korg is very successful in selling me stuff like Volcas and now this minilogue, because you get a serious amount of fun for the money. While Volcas are simple plastic boxes and (besides the fun factor) not much more than you would expect for the price, the minilogue really has an impressive overall quality for the money and while it still has some minor firmware bugs here and there, it's stable enough meanwhile to have lots of fun with it.

I recorded audio from the synth in higher quality, but as the audio path was different from than the one i heard on my speakers, i didn't notice that my level adjustment i performed before wasn't optimal for some situations. So there are some distortions here and there that don't come from the synth. But most of the audio track sounds okay."

Published on Apr 2, 2016 cuckoomusic .

"Support CUCKOO here:

One synthe that captured my interest was the Modor NF-1. A very digital synth with handy envelopes, a bit different sounding noises and a beautiful formant filter. I had the opportunity to talk with the creator of the synth, about the process of turning his hobbies into a real project, and singlehandedly coming up with this synthesiser. Also taking it for a spin in the end myself, exploring different aspects of the synth. I found it to be lush, sharp and lovely. It's taking advantage of the digital heritage in a very charming way, while also being able to go a bit wonky :)"

Also in the end I tried to film Ed's hands when he's performing, with a long lens (although a bit shaky) so that you can all see the subtle level of pressure required to play the Continuum."
