Shoom Synthesizer for iPad Released

iTunes: Shoom Synthesizer - Yuri Turov

"•• Introductory price for a limited time ••

Shoom is an expressive XY pad synthesizer. Or, more precisely, three identical synthesizers in one app. It is capable of playing any pitch in the audible range and doesn’t necessarily limit you to a particular scale. Nevertheless, if you do want to use scales, Shoom can deliver anything from common 12-tone equal tempered to xenharmonic and microtonal.

• Three independent synthesizers
• 20–20,000 Hz pitch range
• Slide freely or snap notes to scale with adjustable glide rate
• Set notes to infinite hold using a dedicated toggle
• Microtonal and non-octave repeating scales support
• MIDI CC control and clock sync (MIDI note input coming in a later update)
• Inter-App Audio, Audiobus 2 support
• 60+ bundled presets
• Import and export of presets and CC maps

Synthesizer engine features:
• Adjustable polyphony, up to 30 voices
• Two oscillators with 4 waveforms and PWM, and one noise generator
• Oscillator FM cross-modulation
• 4 pole (24 dB/octave) resonant low pass filter with overdrive and pitch tracking
• 2 variable slope ADSR envelopes for amplitude and filter cutoff
• 2 LFOs with 9 waveforms, up to 3 out of 12 simultaneously assignable parameters, trigger and global running modes, fade-in and phase controls
• Y axis position as modulation source with up to 3 of 15 simultaneously assignable parameters
• Note pan randomizer
• Built-in stereo delay and reverb effects"

The ArduTouch Arduino-compatible Music Synthesizer Kit by Mitch Altman & Bill Alessi

This one in via Skot Wiedman, the man behind Motus Mavis and the recent Hyve touch synthesizer.

"Last month my friend Mitch Altman came to Champaign-Urbana and he debuted his ArduTouch synthesizer kit as well as his other cool projects for a guest lecture in the Interactivity II class I am teaching here at the University of Illinois.

Here we are in a photo taken by Mitch with the ArduTouch in front of the computer.

I didn't see you cover this cool little instrument yet so I thought to send it in. Here is the build instructions with a closer look at the project.


You'll find build notes at Cornfield Electronics here.

"This is a brand new kit as of March-2016 -- still a work in progress.

Solder the kit together, and it works!

Hack the Arduino sketch, and make your own cool synthesizers.

Soon, the documentation will be good enough to learn how to use Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to make your own sounds for your own projects.

The Arduino sketch for this project was mostly written by my friend Bill Alessi."

Minimoog + Gristleizer + AD4096 + Ampex ATR-102 Tape Warble

Published on Apr 16, 2016 Bimini Road

"The Minimoog is running through the Endangered Audio Research Gristleizer to an AD4096 analog delay (which will be for sale soon at Hey Day Music in Asheville, NC). It then goes into an Apollo 8 where it passes through a Neve 1073 Preamp to an Ampex ATR-102 set to 3.5IPS 456 formula with tons of wow and flutter.

For mixing, I used the Slate VCC Neve, the Manley Vari-Mu, Manley Massive Passive Mastering EQ, and finally back through another pass of the Ampex on 30IPS 250 formula."

Novation Nova with Custom Green Side Panels - Better than Supernovas?

via this auction

No the external power supply is custom.

"This is novation's best analog modeling since they ever made. I have owned the Supernova and the Supernova II and I personally think this sounds better for some reason don't ask me why I have thought that for 15 years. Must be the DA converters. Me and my friend bought one on the same day I got the Supernova 2 and he got the Nova desktop synth (over 15 years ago from guitar center). We were roommates so I got to hear his all the time at the same time I was making songs of mine and I always thought the Nova sounded better."

Never heard this before now. Anyone else confirm this? I was actually gifted a Nova in the early days of running the site by a generous reader (I will never forget that - it was the first and only time in running the site for over 10 years now), but I never compared it to the Supernovas.

Yamaha SY-1 Vintage and Rare Analog Synthesizer, CS-80 Soul

via this auction

"Sound wise, this synth is a monster. Oscillators are fat and the filters, REALLY MOOGISH. It's really a different beast than the Korgs of it's time, much better editing options and a richer, fatter sound for sure, CS-80 style.

This synth is also easily moddable for CV/Gate operation, the ressources are readily available. The mod uses existing RCA sub outputs spots that serve no real purpose (perfect to swap for 1/8 connectors)."

'a gentle cutting' by Robots Against Children

I've been working on sound design and development lately. I'm trying to write a Dream Pop/Electronica record and this video is a brief exercise in utilizing some of those sounds. Whatever form this ends up taking on the album is likely to be fairly different but I liked these tones and this theme so I figured why not make a video."
