"I recall driving along Highway 9 in south New Mexico from El Paso, Texas to Animas, New Mexico on the way to Tucson, Arizona. The long bouncy road made an unforgettable impression of the remote southern US border region.

I tried to produce the drone impression of the road noise and wide open scenic expanse in this project.

A live studio take of the modular synthesizer recorded in Cubase and captured by the iPhone. Video edited in Final Cut Pro.

Some module patch highlights include the MI Clouds in Parasite Resonator mode dealing with a few voltage controlled radio station audio signals and one of the melodic sequencer lines.

The bass line is a Q960 step sequencer sent to a Q106 vco through a Yusynth Minimoog LPF. It is sent through a Modcan dual delay and Lexicon studio delay. There is a doubling with the MakeNoise Mysteron through a STG Sea Devils filter and the TipTop Z-DSP with Halls of Valhalla.

Other sequencer lines play various slow melodic passages over the top. Some of the vco sources are half dozen Q106's, Mos Lab 901 + 904A suite, Harvestman Piston Honda and Ian Fritz Synthetic Sound Labs DDVCO through Yusynth Arp 4072 LPF. Effects included Strymon Blue Sky reverb, Behringer DD400 delay, SSL 1310 digital delay, Lexicon MX200's and TC Electronics D-Two.

A periodic low frequency drum sound is generated by an envelope to a STG Post Lawsuit LPF and noise from a Sputnik WCRS.

Clock timing handled by Cubase to Future Retro Mobius which drove the STG Soundlabs sequencer suite, 4MS RCS and QCD and Moon Modular dividers, Pressure Points as well as the Q960 and Q119 sequencers"

Resonance : Nord Lead 2x

Published on Jul 9, 2016 100 Things I Do

"The Nord Lead 2x. Every time I use this synth it never seem to get the sounds out of it I thought I was looking for. It has the same controls as a lot of other synths I own, similar wave forms but for some reason the Nord always seems to have its own idea of the sound I want to create. Being Virtual Analog (a computer hiding in a keyboard) the Sweeds have weaved pure magic and given it such a unique sound and character with an amazingly expressive filter. While it does not suit every situation it fills the need in my Studio as my main controller keyboard and always when called on delivers something that sits perfectly in a mix."

Novation Jam - Mininova and Bass Station II

Published on Jul 9, 2016 SYNTHWAY

"New video... just watched Nick Batt live at Cymrus Beats [posted here] and got inspired. Not exactly the same quality, but liked what I've done - improvised in Cm.

Novation Mininova on bass sound, Bass Station II on the lead sound.

Sorry for this soft horn lead once again, it's just that I simply love this sound and it's essential to me that a synth can do it. I could use the Mininova for leads, but it sounds way better on the BS2.

Enjoying both synths! Part of a small gig setup, with Volca Sample and Bass to complete the party. More on future videos... I actually finally have a place to put all my stuff together and play."

"This is an exceptional 1980 Moog Minimoog Model D in both perfect working order and excellent cosmetic shape. This particular example, serial number 12807, is in excellent studio-ready condition. It was recently inserted into a brand new solid walnut cabinet made by Custom Vintage Keyboards in North Hollywood, CA. The synth has been fully serviced, including bushing replacement and complete calibration, and it is being sold ready-to-go with no issues. All keys, rocker switches, knobs/dials, and lights works flawlessly. While producing a famously rich texture and grit, this synth exhibits pronounced clarity and presence: above and beyond that of most. Resultantly, this example is well-balanced, strong, full-range, and perfect for recording."

External clock input 3.5mm added. When a plug is inserted with clock, it disables the internal clock letting you control tempo and synchronization from another source.
10 jacks added for future MOD to add external TRIGGER INPUT you will need to do MOD
And a blue LED for measure count and looks great in the dark !"
