Bassalicious for iPad - Overview

Published on Jun 8, 2016 pantsofdeath

iTunes: BASSalicious - MIDIculous LLC

"Dedicated monophonic synth bass synthesizer featuring the NEW iOS AudioUnit Version 3 plugin architecture. - 21 VA Wavetable Waveforms with PWM - 4 Oscillators - AMP with 4 Modulators - Circuit Modeled Filter Section with Velocity - LFO with Aftertouch

BASSalicious is a dedicated monophonic synth bass plugin with a single focus on sound. All of the synthesis and filters are custom tweaked with our own personality and our urban ear. When we first set out to produce BASSalicious, it came from a need we had. All of our plugins come from a musical need first. We noticed that there were a ton of synth bass libraries out there that focused solely on dubstep and wobble bass sounds, but not that much out there for the urban community and that pure synth bass classic sound. Sure there are the sample based ones, but you run into problems with samples when trying to produce a realistic glide effect that is so essential to urban synth bass music. The other thing we were dissatisfied with were the oscillators themselves. You see, in order to reduce aliasing, most wavetable synths reduce the bandwidth and filter out frequencies so it doesn't alias. The problem with this is that you filter out the good stuff along with it. We figured out a unique compromise, where we can give you the full band of the wavetable, while at the same time reducing aliasing. Our method is very unorthodox, but it works, because the technology will always take a back seat to the sound, and not the other way around: "If it sounds good, then it is good."

Furthermore, we used an analog modeled filter that was approximated using real circuit designs. The complete topology was modeled with all of the aspects of the electronic components involved, and then converted over to source code. The result is a very organic sounding synth bass plugin, which has no hint of that cold digital wavetable sound. This is what we mean when we say it has an “organic sound.” This is what you hear in urban music. Each key piece has it’s own sound, color, and character to it. It’s not trying to be something else. It’s it’s own individual and we achieved this with BASSalicious. Remember the first time you heard Neo-Soul Keys® and your ears were suddenly opened to the sound you always wished you had, but could never achieve.

IAP: The first oscillator is free. You will have access to all of the synth functions. After you purchase, you will get access to the other 3 oscillators as well as the 63 high quality custom synth bass presets.

AudioUnit Plugin: As an added bonus, we have adopted the new AudioUnit standard, so now you can seamlessly use BASSalicious inside of your favorite iOS DAW as if it was apart of the sequencer. Presets that you make in the app and/or the plugin will be shared automatically. The recommended iPad devices are the iPad 4th generation and higher, with the exception of the iPad 3."

Wrangler Sparked: Modular Remix Project

"Wrangler Sparked: Modular Remix Project

(Modular remixes by Daniel Miller, Chris Carter, Alessandro Cortini & more. Including David Burraston Mus IIC remix on the Hinton Muisc Lab!). Release date: 24/6/2016

Limted 750 copies double vinyl LP + CD"

"Wrangler’s new remix album features 11 modular synthesizer re-workings of tracks from their 2014 debut album, LA Spark.

Featuring remixes by the likes of Mute founder & The Normal’s Daniel Miller, Chris Carter from Chris & Cosey, Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) and Scanner, all the artists were sent the same original proposal by Wrangler at the start of the project: ‘Wrangler would like to ask you to submit an experimental piece of music for inclusion on an album entitled Modular Remix. The idea is very simple. We provide some basic stems from a track selected by you from our debut album LA Spark and you add whatever sounds you like - the only rule being that you use just one analog modular synthesiser system of your choice. We've approached you because we admire your passion and commitment to electronic music, and we hope you will be interested in taking part.’

The result is an album which flows across four sides of vinyl, from the locked down electro-dancefloor rhythm of Daniel Miller’s ‘Theme From Wrangler’, through the darker, brutalist shapes of Chris Carter’s eight minute ‘Lava Land’ opus and into schizo-synth pop (Dean Honer – I Monster, Eccentronic Research Council), abstract ambient beauty (Alessandro Cortini), dark dub (Solvent) and finally the brooding 14 minute masterpiece of Wrangler’s own remix, ‘Theme Meme’.

"In this interview, Herbert Deutsch recounts his life in music—including the genesis and collaborative process behind creating the first Moog synthesizer with Bob Moog. These two pioneers of synthesis worked together to create a portable electronic instrument with endless sound potential, thanks to the power of “voltage control.” The Moog prototype is an essential part of music history; its sound has continued to impact popular and experimental music alike since the 1960s. Today, Moog Music, Inc. continues to revolutionize synthesis—while paying homage to the root notes of its past."

Mutable Instruments Introduces New Blinds Eurorack Module

via Mutable Instruments

"Blinds is a 4-channel voltage-controlled signal polarizer. Each channel consists of a polarizer circuit, also known as a four-quadrant multiplier. This circuit acts like a VCA, except that a negative control voltage will cause the output signal to be inverted, instead of being silenced. Blinds’ outputs are daisy-chained, allowing adjacent groups of 2, 3, or all 4 channels, to be mixed together.

One can think of Blinds’ as a voltage-controlled version of Shades, the control center for all the modulation CVs used in a patch. Many other uses are possible, though. For example, each individual channel can be used to scale/offset a CV; and with audio rate modulation signals, each channel acts like a ring-modulator, with massive potential for drones and feedback patches.

Technical characteristics

All inputs DC-coupled.
All inputs handle audio-rate signals.
Input impedance: 100k for all inputs.
CV offset range: +/- 5V.
Gain scale: linear, a +5V CV translates to a gain of 1.
Gain range: +/- 2.
Current consumption: +12V: 70mA ; -12V: 70mA.
Open-source hardware."

Mutable Instruments Introduces New Veils Eurorack Module

via Mutable Instruments

"VCAs are the cornerstones of modular patches: shaping the amplitude or timbre of a tone with an envelope, animating a mixture of several oscillators, controlling the amount of filter modulation with a random source or a touch controller, applying an envelope on the linear FM signal hitting an oscillator… are all possible uses of these super versatile building blocks. That’s why you never have enough of them. What about four more?

Veils provides four VCAs with an adjustable response curve. Veils’ outputs are daisy-chained, allowing adjacent groups of 2, 3, or all 4 channels, to be mixed together.

Technical characteristics

All inputs DC-coupled.
All inputs handle audio-rate signals.
Input impedance: 100k for all inputs.
Gain scale: a +5V CV translates to a gain of 1 (0dB).
Gain range: 2 (+6dB) in linear operation, 10 (+20dB) in exponential operation.
Current consumption: +12V: 50mA ; -12V: 50mA.

Connect Blocks to your hardware! The REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 update introduces new CV and MIDI connectivity. Calibrate pitch signals for accurate use with external hardware oscillators, use Blocks to convert any signal into gates and triggers, and send pitch, gate, and modulation signals from a Blocks patch to REAKTOR's MIDI out. This free update is free for all registered REAKTOR 6 users."

And the press release:

"Native Instruments Releases Free REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 Update

Berlin, June 8, 2016 – Native Instruments today released the free REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 update. Blocks 1.2 adds major improvements for integrating hardware into REAKTOR-based setups. The update adds three new utilities, as well as introducing a MASCHINE sequencer and a set of eight drum modules designed to recreate the sound of a legendary drum machine. Coinciding with the release is a new series of tutorials demonstrating Blocks integration. The Blocks 1.2 update is available for free via the NI Service Center.

REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 brings several new Blocks to Native Instruments’ rack-style modular framework. The Pitch CV Out Block sends pitch CV and Gate signals to external hardware. Convenient auto-calibration tunes oscillators and calibrates the pitch CV signal sent out of REAKTOR. Calibration can be saved per snapshot. The Gates and Triggers Block generate up to four gates and triggers from incoming signals, allowing users to ping filters, trigger function generators and envelopes, clock sequencers, and much more. The MIDI Out module converts pitch and gate information from any Blocks patch into MIDI signals for controlling external MIDI gear. The module also functions as a four-channel CV to MIDI CC converter. These new devices also expand REAKTOR’s existing OSC capability, allowing users to transform incoming OSC signals into MIDI or CV/gate signals to control their external hardware.

REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 also marks the release of nine new Blocks that add enhanced functionality to MASCHINE and dedicated drum voices to the REAKTOR Blocks framework. The MASCHINE Sequencer Block is an eight-channel trigger sequencer designed to control Blocks patches directly the MASCHINE MK2 controller. The sequencer also features a Euclidean pattern generator that automatically creates new polyrhythmic structures within a sequence. The MASCHINE Sequencer Block is available free in the NI User Library. Niji Drum Blocks are eight drum modules that recreate the sound of a legendary drum machine. Combining these voices with the MASCHINE sequencer allows users to create their own custom drum machines.

Released in conjunction with the Blocks 1.2 update, Owen Vallis of the online education platform Kadenze has created a series of tutorials demonstrating how to integrate a setup – including hardware – with the new Blocks included in the update.

The Blocks 1.2 update is available free via the NI Service Center.

• Added filter Parallel & Series structure selection;
• Improved SVF filters quality on Resonance response;
• Added Seq Mod randomization function;
• Fixed a bug in distortion which could possibly cause crash;
• Added 38 new factory presets.

WIGGLE main features:
• Control points – WIGGLE has 4 operators. Each operator's wavetable can be dynamically customized by its 4 control points. Each control point has its independent built-in LFO. These build the basic characters of a sound.
• Other synthesis possibilities – Free-drawing PD (Phase Distortion) curve, FM (Frequency Modulation) and Morphing offer deep sonic potentials.
• Color coded FM Matrix – The FM Matrix clearly indicates the modulator/carrier relationship between the operators using color coded knobs.
• Modulations – 8 free drawing LFO/Envelope, 8 step-based and 4 specialized modulators can be drag-and-droped onto most of the synth parameters.
• Morph pad – Morphing between 4 variations of a preset captured on the Morph Pad multiplies the degree of sonic expressiveness. You can also draw an arbitrary path to automate the morph process.
• Built-in effects – 7 built-in effects can also be modulated and make a WIGGLE sound more interesting. 4 Operators could go through duo multi-mode filter parallel.
• Step sequencer – The sequencer offers you precise control over each step for creating musical pattern with human feel. The resulting sequence can be dragged out as a MIDI file.
• Built-in recorder – A simple built-in recorder helps you quickly sample a sound tweaking process. The resulting audio can be dragged out as a wave file.
• Retina ready – High resolution images of the user interface are prepared for better viewing experience on retina displays.

Roland Jupiter 6 Analogue synth. MINT and fully refurbished

via this auction

"I have owned this keyboard for over 10 years. I bought it in 2005 with a 2 voice fault. As the keyboard was in pretty good condition I decided to give it a good once over. I have refurbished many classic analogue synths and have been an electronics engineer for 30 years.

I installed all new pots, sliders and some of the coloured button caps. I cleaned and polished the remaining caps that are not available. I cleaned the rotary pot covers.

I have cleaned the keyboard contacts and set them up for trouble free operation.

I removed as much of the 30 years muck from the clear LED caps but they are slightly discoloured from time and age and as they are NLA I bit the bullet and refitted them.

I have set up all voltages and frequencies using a multi meter and oscilloscope where required as per the Roland service notes.

The functioning of this synth is 100%.

The cosmetics are 99.5%. There are some very minor scratches to the casing which are barely visible.

You may find an equal out there but you wont find better."

Thought the upside down serial number on one of the 121s was interesting. Curious if it came out of the factory that way or somehow happened later.

Linndrum LM2 Vintage Analogue Drum Machine Fully Serviced

via this auction

"All original LM2 eproms installed.
They also have the quick release eprom sockets so if you do want to swap eprom sounds you easily can.

This Super rare Linndrum is one of the best drum machines you can get. It can sound heavy weight with the classic Linndrum Kick and Snare sounds
it can be very rounded fat and chunky as well as light icey and breezy its very versatile.

The clock and groove of the sequencer is amazing on these machines yes you can get LM2 samples
but the feel of the clock and the way the machine grooves and ticks over is the real charm and character of this amazing drum machine theres nothing quite like it.

Used on countless hits from the 80s, 90s upto the present day.

Sounds: The tunable Side stick and Snare give you that crazy Prince sound.
The tunable toms and congas can become bass lines waiting to happen.
And the top end and percussive parts are stunning.
All with individual outputs for each sound aswell as L-R Mix out.

Synch: I have been syching/clocking this machine with a Roland SH101 to test and its tight and funky and sounds bang on. And I have also been lining up the Linndrum takes to the Click track in Logic X and its very steady and stays with the click."

Kawai SX-210 Analog Professional Polysonic Keyboard

via this auction

Polysonic! That's actually a cool concept when you think about it. All synths are polysonic!

"I found this rare and excellent condition Vintage Kawai SX-210 Polysonic Synthesizer\analog keyboard at a local estate sale. This keyboard has been tested and works and sounds great! Very low start price on this professional full size analog keyboard. These were produced in the early 1980s by Kasai and are exceedingly hard to find. True analog sound from this vintage full sized Kawai soundboard. This was found at the estate of a local musician and has been very well cared for. This 61 key poly sonic synthesizer shows a little wear to the woodgrain sides as shown in pictures but is otherwise clean a works perfectly, producing clean a clear true analog sound. See all pictures. All original keys buttons and dials. Previous owner stated that he has never had any issues with this keyboard and was the original owner. These keyboard are very rare and very desirable to musicians as they are no longer produced This keyboard weighs about 28 pounds and I am extimating the shipping weight to be 30-31 lbs. All functions tested and working as designed and intended. No excessive slack or play in modulation wheel or pitch/bend bar. The only wear noticed upon inspection is a slight canting of the 32nd and 58th keys. Might be an easy fix at a music shop but keys work fine, they just hit the keys next to them (left and right respectively. No other issues but some cosmetic wear as to be expected for a 35 year old vintage price. All original down to the cord. This full sized keyboard measures 34 3/4" inches long and is 6" tall with knobs. Case measured 15 3/4" deep from back to front. Very clean example that was well cared for and properly stored by the previous owner. See all pictures as they are part of the description and a true testament to the condition of the synthesizer."
