Korg 770 vs Volca Bass - Synthesizer Filter Comparison

Published on Apr 8, 2016 gstormelectro

"Video and audio by G-Storm Electro c.2016

Quick comparison of the Volca Bass filter to the Korg 770 lowpass filter. Different settings for the peak are explored.

The Volca Bass takes its filter design from the diode ring filter of the 700/700S miniKorg synths of the 70's. The Korg 770 has the identical filter design except replaces matched diodes for a diode array. Do the filters sound the same? To me they sound darn close, but you be the judge.

However the oscillators themselves sound different to me. The Volca Bass has a lot more bottom end than the 770, listen with headphones or a nice set of powered monitors."

::vtol:: red from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

A new creation from ::vtol:: based on the concepts and ideas of light-sound objects from 60-80s

See for the inspiration behind this project and additional details. The following is a short excerpt on the functional aspects.

"The object works autonomously, by algorithm with many accidental events tied to feedback, with sensors defining the position of various mechanical elements in relation to the range of their movement. The sound part has up to 4 voices which depend on the activity of various elements. The sound is also in direct interaction with actual position of those elements, and basically is voicing the process of movement, brightness of light, and intensity of the piece.

Moog Island Walk-around - Superbooth16

Published on Apr 8, 2016 DivKidVideo

"A little rough and ready but for those that haven't seen here's a walk around the Moog Island that Moog created at Superbooth. Not just the cactus (or cacti is it?) laid out like Moog did at NAMM but also peppered with a few old GDR east German goodies from around the Funkhaus studios themselves.

What better than to soundtrack this with some drone, ambient soundscape type thing (knocked up from a few quick patches for the video)."

MONOLITH Modular Analog Monosynth - Only 5 Made

via this auction

"This is a beautiful, rare analog modular monosynth; the Monolith from LZX Industries.

Only 5 of these were ever made, so you’re unlikely to see one again any time soon.

This synth sounds great doing bread-and-butter monosynth sounds and can also get a bit wild when you crank up the resonance on the self-oscillating filter. Plus it’s fully modular so you can get crazy with the patching.

Here are the specs;

The LZX Monolith is a 5U form factor modular synthesizer voice enclosed in one panel design and is based on the Music from Outer Space Sound Lab.
A ready-to-go fully modular synth voice that can easily work with 1v per octave analog equipment, midi to cv converter with your midi controllers or computer, or something like the Akai Max 49.

Modules are as follows:
· VCO 1 (Sawtooth, 2 FM ports)
· VCO 2 (Sawtooth and Pulse, Pulsewidth Modulation, FM1, FM2)
· Signal Mixer (3 ins summed to one out, individual knobs to attenuate volume or voltage)
· VCF (Resonant Lowpass and Bandpass filter, Cutoff FM port.
· VCA (1 I/O, 2 CV ports to influence volume)
· Secondary Signal Mixer (Another stage of audio or voltage blending, 2 Ins, 1 Inverted in, 1 Out.)
· AD Envelope Generator (Trig or Gate switch, Cycle mod to simulate LFO effects, Trig In, Voltage out. )
· Modulation Generator (Sawtooth, Triangle, Ramp, Square, Fast or Slow mode switch, Frequency knob, CV out)
· Noise Generator
· Blank Ports are Multis
· Real Wood End-Cheeks!"
