Montage Film Fun

Published on Jul 3, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"The Montage is truly a performance instrument. This is an entirely live performance with a film soundtrack feel. I created a performance that has a French Horn swell which uses the Superknob for a really great performance dynamic. I am controlling the knob by the FC7 footpedal. I also layered a choir, and some strings. The strings are brought in and out with the mod wheel for additional dynamic control. Finally there's a timpani on the lower couple of octaves that I have active only at about velocity value 60 and above so you can lay into it and get that percussion. Just a few minutes of improv with a little Rocky and Star Wars thrown in for good measure. :) Enjoy!"

Moog Model 15 BASICS & CLASSICS: 64 free synth patches by Fabio Ribeiro

Published on Jul 3, 2016 Marcus Padrini
Update: video renamed to Moog Model 15 BASICS & CLASSICS: 100 free synth patches by Fabio Ribeiro

iTunes: Model 15 - Moog Music Inc.

"The brazilian keyboard player, musical producer and sound synthesis instructor Fabio Ribeiro (Remove Silence) created the BASICS & CLASSICS collection, bringing 64 patches for the Moog Model 15 app for iPad and iPhone.

This free collection presents classic and famous synth sounds created using only the original features of the classic Moog Model 15 analog modular synth, without the new features of the app or delay.

In addition to demonstrating the versatility of the original synthesizer, the purpose of these patches, mostly, is didactic, illustrating how sounds of different classes can be created through subtractive synthesis in a modular synthesizer. Also included are some classic patches from keyboard players and bands like Rick Wakeman, Yes, Triumvirat, Rush, OMD, The Prodigy, Camel, Uriah Heep, etc.

Transmission A-001 ( Live Demo Version )

Published on Jul 3, 2016 Todd Smith

"This little ambient jam will be the intro to my upcoming Lydia EP. The Arturia Microbrute, Korg Volca Beats, Teenage Engineering PO-12 and Korg Volca Bass all sleep on this jam. I use the Korg Monotron Delay to capture and process live radio waves from a local Christian radio station. Korg Volca Keys plays a simple, one note drone style synth line while the Micrkorg is played & supplies the pad. On the Roland end we have the Roland Boutique JU-08 which is sequenced in Dual mode. Side A plays the strange sound which starts the track & side B plays the sci-fi, radio wave type synth sound. The Roland Boutique JU-06 plays a simple pulse wave sequence. All this is recorded in one take into Ableton Live which is used as a muli track recorder & adds VST effects. I use Waves SuperTap6 for delay.

Patch Notes #2 - 0-Coast Hidden LFOs

Published on Jul 3, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Here's a patch example using the hidden LFOs and other functions in the Make Noise 0-Coast synth as the main voice, with another Euclidean Rhythm based drum part with the Ornament & Crime.

The 0-Coast is the melodic voice, sweeping between the clean triangle wave shape and the additive, overtone shape from time to time.

The note sequence is coming from the René, which is being clocked by Tempi to the X clock and a slower odd tempo to the Y clock from Tempi via the Wogglebug, which is also sending slewed random voltages to the Y CV in. Then the gate from René is routed to the Contour (ADSR envelope) section, which controls the Dynamics (VCFA). The sustain is turned down in the Contour section, resulting in a basic attack/decay envelope, with the decay time modulated by the triangle wave LFO from the MIDI B CV output (as covered in the related tutorial).

The Slope (cycling AD envelope) section has cycle disabled, and is being triggered at an audio rate by the Oscillator square wave output. The rise and fall times are set to zero, and the vari-response knob is set to exponential, creating an extremely short envelope shape. The Slope output is then routed into the Oscillator FM input. The Stepped Random output is sent through the signal mult to the Oscillator Multiply attenuverter, while the square wave hidden LFO is routed to the Overtone attenuator.

Tempi is also clocking the Ornament & Crime, which is running 3 channels of Euclidean rhythms to a kick in Braids, a snare with the Basimilius Iteritas, and a hihat in the Scooper, with the Euclidean fill amount on each sequence modulated by the three channels on Pressure Points clocked from Brains."

Moog Voyager to Eurorack Interface From Synovatron

via @davegalemusic

"Interface your @moogmusicinc Voyager to Eurorack! Expander module from @Synovatron @MusicTechMag @BrightonModular"

via Synovatron

"ATTENTION: The first and most important thing that I need to get across here is that the VXP1 has been designed for the keyboard versions of the Moog Voyager. The Old School version has the same Accessory Port but does not have a touchpad so therefore does not support the Touch X, Y, A and Gate outputs. The RME (Rack Mount Edition) has an Output Accessory Port and does support the VX-351 and is probably OK BUT I have not been able to verify the extent to which it is compatible as there is virtually no information about the RME Output Accesory Port's signal set. Logic suggests it is very similar but I cannot yet guarantee how well the VXP1 will work with the RME. I will try and find out (maybe borrow an RME for a weekend - any offers?).

TOUCH Outputs (X, Y, AREA, GATE)
This function produces TOUCH X, Y, AREA CV and GATE outputs in response to touching the Voyager's touchpad. X and Y vary according to where the pad is touched, AREA varies according to how much area on the pad is being pressed. The GATE turns on when the pad is touched.

X, Y and AREA are CV outputs that have an effective range of ±5V.

GATE is a 0V off and 10V on signal. The GATE LED illuminates when the pad is touched.

NOTE: The Touch outputs are not supported by the Old School Voyager; they will remain at zero volts. One possibility I'm looking into is to provide a modification to allow the 4 Touch connectors to be used as a mult. This would involve removing 4 resistors and adding 3 linking wires on the circuit board. Another possibility is to make X, Y and AREA into diode connected inputs to the GATE output. This would act as a logic OR gate. This would entail fitting diodes to 3 connectors and wiring them to a spare comparator chip and wiring that to the GATE output driver. These options would have to be ordered as an Old School variant with Mult or Diode options but I will publish details of how to modify or revert back to standard.

This function produces KEYBOARD PITCH CV, VEL CV (velocity), PRESS CV (pressure) and GATE outputs in response to playing the keyboard. PITCH CV is determined by which key is pressed, VEL by how fast a key is pressed and PRESS by how hard a key is pressed. The GATE turns on when a key is pressed.

PITCH is a CV output that is trimmable to 1V/octave (using the screwdriver adjustment on the front panel) and has a nominal range of -0.916V (low F) to +2.667V (high C).

VEL and PRESS are CV outputs that have an effective range of ±5V.

GATE is a 0V off and 10V on signal. The GATE LED illuminates when a key is pressed.

This function produces WHEEL PITCH and MOD CV outputs in response to operating the Pitch and Mod wheels. The Pitch wheel is centre sprung to give 0V when not operated. The Mod wheel is not sprung and can be left in any position. Normally when the Mod wheel is fully rotated towards the player no modulation occurs (in the Voyager). However this position equates to -5V output. A jumper can be set on the VXP1 circuit board to provide either the standard ±5V range or a 0V-10V range. A 0V-10V range will allow it to operate a modular VCA to control modulation depth for example.

PITCH and MOD are CV outputs that have an effective range of ±5V but MOD is jumper selectable to have an effective range of 0V to +10V.

1970s Crumar Performer Vintage Analog Synthesizer Strings & Brass with Transpose Slider Mod

via this auction

"Up for sale, a 1970's Crumar Performer synthesizer in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. This vintage analog synth has been recently and thoroughly serviced, with the addition of a transpose slider on the bass side cheek block to give it the same six octave functionality of the Performer 2, as well as a couple extra sustain and crescendo options.

Compact and fully polyphonic across the 49 keys, this synth was manufactured in Italy and introduced in the late '70s. Programming is simple and clearly laid-out on the Performer, with just 15 sliders and a few buttons. A solid black chassis and wood end-cheeks round out this classic and often overlooked string machine, which was fully serviced and modded by Bob Weigel of "String Doctorin."

The Performer is best remembered for its Strings, and features a simple three-band equalizer with high, mid and low sliders can be used to give the strings shimmering sparkle or moody dark timbres. The Strings section uses two oscillators per voice with 8' and 16' settings. Simple Attack and Sustain sliders give you some control of your strings envelope settings as well.

The Brass section uses a single oscillator with just a square wave, and it has a low-pass voltage-controlled filter with resonance. Simple Attack and Decay sliders control its envelope settings too.

The LFO is quite nice, with delay length, rate and depth control. It can modulate both Brass and String sections and can be routed either to the VCF or pitch. There are three outputs on the back: main output, brass output and signal output (for external processing) as well as CV and Gate connections.

Cosmetically, there is light wear on the wooden ends and a few small scuffs on the enclosure, but overall, this Crumar is in impressive shape, with all of its original slider caps. Fairly uncommon in any condition, it's very rare to find a Performer that has received the necessary servicing and care from which this synth has benefitted!

A partial Crumar cover is included, which is essentially just half of an original zippered case that now works as a fancy dust cover."

Korg KPR-77 Programmable Rhythm ANALOG DRUM MACHINE

via this auction

"The KPR-77 was Korg's answer to the TR-606 drum machine. Like the 606, the KPR-77 is basically an analog machine. Its sounds consist of bass, snare, two toms, open and closed hi-hats, accent and (switchable) cymbal/clap. Each drum sound's level can be individual mixed via the sliders. Unfortunately the KPR does not sound nearly as nice as the 606 can. But it has a simple LCD programming display sort of like what the TR-505 sports.

It holds up to 48 patterns (3 groups of 16) and two songs. A pattern can hold up to 32 steps. Like the TR-606, the KPR can be battery operated and REQUIRES batteries for retention of your programmed drum patterns and songs when it is turned off! Fortunately a casette out lets you store its memory to tape for offline storage. The KPR-77 has DIN SYNC IN/OUT as well as Tom trigger outs (like the 606) for external control and triggering. However, Korg's DIN Sync is not the same as Roland's DIN Sync. When syncing Roland and Korg gear via DIN sync, they will work however the Korg machine will run at 1/2 the tempo/speed of the Roland unit. This is because Korg uses a 48 ppqn (parts per quarter note) DIN standard whereas Roland's is 24 ppqn. This can be corrected with several devices which will translate 24-48 sync, such as the Korg KMS-30."
