MIDIRAUSCH - Techno Exercise - Modular Jam

Published on Jul 6, 2016 midirausch

"Some freestyle jamming experimenting with efx and filter routings.
still too unflexible but quite funny :-D

Headphone music, I hope you will hear the same as I hear!
Lots of bass inside.
Minute 3 to 4 sucks, don't hesitate skipping

All sounds and efx come straight from my modular!

New Behringer Synth to be Announced Tomorrow?

Update: first teaser videos here.

This one in via Soviet Space Child

"Breaking News.
It’s analog - not digital. It’s discrete - not modeling. And it sounds amazing!
More tomorrow..."

Could it be the Midas, a new Behringer ARP Odyssey, or this industrial retro synth? Or is a new all analog mixer!? :) We'll find out soon enough...

And via Uli Behringer from just two weeks ago referencing the industrial retro synth:

"In my very early years, I designed a synthesizer called the UB1 which was a combination of a synth, electric piano and organ. Nothing great compared with today’s standards but the UB1 was my first step into the world of music and electronics.

As a passionate musician myself, I always wanted to design another synthesizer ever since. Around 3 years ago I sat down with our brilliant Midas engineers and we came up with an incredible concept for a new synthesizer that is so revolutionary, that it will be a world’s first in at least 4 major aspects.

We will soon be making the first announcements and hopefully ship the synthesizer later this year.

If I could nominate one product, then it is this new synthesizer, a truly amazing instrument that is very close to my heart. I am extremely proud of the Midas engineers who put their heart and soul into it.

Make Noise Maths Demo Videos by Perfect Circuit Audio


Maths as a Clock Divider

"This patch utilizes the Make Noise Maths slew capabilities in a rhythmic and helpful way. The Maths on the right is just providing clocks which are patched into the Trigger inputs of Channel 1 and 4 of the Maths on the left. If the Rise amount makes the envelope longer than the next Trigger, it won't retrigger until the next gate, allowing one to use it as an analog clock divider. Both channels of Maths are being clocked at the same rate, and as the Rise value changes, the clock division is decided, showing some rhythmic ratios such as 1:2, 2:3, 2:4, and 3:4. The End of Cycle and End of Rise clock outputs are then sent to strike an Optomix for a quick percussive envelope."

Maths as a (waveshaping) VCA

"This patch is similar to the Clock Divider patch, but instead of sending Triggers and using the slewed envelope to offset the Trigger outputs, this patch uses the Gate input for Audio, and slews it completely until no sound is outputted. The output of an oscillator is sent into the Gate input on Maths. As one moves the Rise and Fall knobs, one can hear the timbre shifting slightly, with some locations cutting out the sound completely. If the output of Channel 4 is patched into the Rise CV, it can modulate the Rise control to cut out the sound. In order to get the correct ranges, the output on Channel 4 may have to be fully negative (by use of the polarizer knob). Great as a VCA in a pinch!"

DSP Synthesizers 4HP Eurorack Nano Drum Modules Seek Funding on Indiegogo

Now on Indiegogo here.

"Do you long for those great 70's and 80's drum sounds?

Want to include them in your eurorack setup?

Wait no more.

The Nano Drum euro module gives you 4 trig-able polyphonic drumsounds and a global tune with CV input in a 4HP euromodule.

Choose among these classics.

We have done these in smaller runs with great success and now want to manufacture it on a larger scale.

The funding will go to manufacturing of a first run of 50 units. Also into R&D for our next unit.

Manufacturing 50 units means sourcing alot of parts, design and ordering PCB's etc. A large venture.

But can be realized with your help. So let's get down to making some modules." Also available as a DIY kit.

MakeNoise 0-Coast Review Questions?

Published on Jul 6, 2016 sonicstate

"We're working on the Makenoise 0-Coast desktop/modular single voice synthesizer review and figured you may have some questions before we finish up. The 0-Coast is described as a synthesizer that doesn't adhere to either East or West Coast synthesis types, but so far I'm thinking that it sort of does head to the west somewhat.

Please leave your comments and/or questions below and we'll try and answer them in the finished review."

You can leave the comments on YouTube or below. If below I'll pass them on to YouTube for Nick.
