F-Zero - Mute City theme / Korg Volca FM / PO-12 Rhythm / Quantum VJ

Published on Jul 17, 2016 Terrible Beat

"The Volca FM emits a Super Famicom anthem whilst the PO-12 attempts to add some percussion. Quantum VJ displays glitch visuals triggered by the PO-12."

Exploring Modular Synths 11 - Self-patching a Dixie oscillator

Published on Jul 17, 2016 Modular Landing

"This video tutorial for beginners starts with an exploration of what happens when you start to patch an oscillator back into itself, using the Dixie ii+ as an example. The self-patched Dixie is then sequenced with a Make Noise Rene and Pressure Points going into an Echophon and Mutable Instruments Clouds. Thanks for watching!"

"A video showing some of the sounds that this instrument can produce, as well as its technical features.

If you just want to hear the sounds, then aside from the playing at the beginning, there are more near the end starting at 23:50."

Minilogue (2016) + Linndrum (1983) track - Harlem Nights

Published on Jul 17, 2016 harlemnightsmusic

"Pairing a Linndrum LM-2 from the 80s with a new Korg Minilogue, into a new retro-style track. Did several overdubs for bass, fx and leads. Filmed during recording. The arp was synced using MIDI (the LM2 has been modified)."

A Trip for Johnny - Yamaha Montage, JU-06, JX-03, JP-08, DSI Mopho SE, Minilogue,

Published on Jul 17, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"This was a much more complex arrangement than I've done recently. Still working on sync issues, as you will no doubt here a few problems there, but at some point you just have to upload it and move on.... LOL. Here's what's going on: The Beatstep Pro is the master clock. It is sending clock to the TR8, and a simple drum sequence to the Simmons SDS8. MDI through from the TR8 to the Minilogue, then on to the Montage. Minilogue is playing an internal sequence in the Arpeggio Random 3 mode which does some really cool stuff with poly chords. The Montage is playing a split-keyboard patch (Sentimental Boy) with a nice little arpeggio on the left hand and a smooth lead on the right. The DSI Mopho I use for a lead that reminds me of a Dennis DeYoung thing, or prog rock lead type patch. Really liking that one. The Ensoniq EPS16+ is on it's own, so I just manually start and stop it and it's running free, but in the same tempo (70 bpm) as the Beatstep Pro. I need more cables and a thru box to be able to get that synced up with everything via MIDI clock. But it worked here. The EPS is playing the Roland JX-03 for a bass line, and there are two different sequenced bass lines. The JU-06 and JP-08 are playing a layered pad/lead sound that is just played live. The Minilogue and DSI are running through the Roland RE-301 for the delay, the Boutiques and Montage are using their internal FX. There is a touch of stereo processing from Valhalla Ubermod in Ableton. There. That's it. LOL"

Vintage Roland Juno 106 Analog Synthesizer serviced by Synth Spa

via this auction

Interesting tip regarding noisy outs below.

"If you're reading this you already know that this legendary synth is worth every penny. Fat analog bass, ethereal pads and of course that iconic chorus. There's a reason this synth is still in such high demand that Roland created their Boutique reissues (the original is always best though of course ;) )

This particular synth was serviced by The Synth Spa and has had all the voice chips repaired, as well as the power plug modified to a standard IEC power cable (pic #6) instead of the original proprietary Roland power cable, as well as some other minor fixes.

There is one minor dent on the metal frame under the pitch bender (pic #5) and a tiny bit of sticker residue on the top of the chassis (pic #4) but otherwise the synth is in really great condition. Never gigged with and in a mostly smoke/pet free studio.

The audio outputs can be a bit noisy at high output levels, however that seems to be common in the 106 series (I notice the same with my other 106) and it can be remedied somewhat by quickly moving the low-medium-high volume toggle on the rear a few times."

"100% fully functional. Everything is working as it should, performs superbly. All keys trigger perfectly, the keyboard plays smoothly, pots are scratchy free and turn easily and smooth. Previous owner had it fully serviced, including recap, calibration, etc. While I don't have history of service, the internals look in spectacular condition. It's a 220v but for USA buyers I will include a high quality 110v to 220v step up transformer for free if needed. Includes the incredibly rare leg stands. Also includes a like-new flight case ($500 value)..."

Life Within the Vapor

Published on Jul 17, 2016 davidryle

"A second feedback patch with MI Clouds, Rings, Makenoise Echophon and Music Thing Spring Reverb. The modular is a mix of 5U and 3U Eurorack.

I used Pressure Points & Brains for a 7 step pitch voltage sequence and strum/trigger to Clouds and Rings.
The Z-DSP is used with Time Fabric (Intervals2) to pitch shift Clouds and Rings. Modifiers from two Turing Machines are used into right/left channels of Z-DSP. Loads of internal feedback applied.

This is my first patch with MI Frames (Parasite) and Euclidean Sequencer mode. A pair of Q106 vco's were used with the channel 3 cv out and FR Step output to do the two note bass line. The Bass Drum is channel 1 from another Q106, the snare is channel 2 of TipTop SD808 and the HiHat sound is channel 4 and a Piston Honda mk1.
The Piston Honda has LSB modified by Turing Machine volts and it is run through an MST Dual VCA with open/closed envelope from a Maths channel 4. The Maths has the Rise/Fall/BOTH input modified from the Turing Machine.
The speaking sounds are a sample capture from a radio broadcast into the Phonogene. Every input control except gene size and SOS mix are modified by LFO's from Intellijel Quadra and Mega Ohm Audio and Music Thing Turing Machines voltage stages.

The final sound voice is a pair of Q106 VCO's in hard sync (PWM*SAW) pitch driven by an STG Voltage Mini Store. It is sent through a Q107 State Variable Filter in high pass mode with the resonance modified by a tempo driven ramp from a Mega Ohm Audio LFO2. The center frequency has a hard sync reset slow ramp from a Q106.
The tempo clock is from the Echophon delay pulse out to various dividers like the 4MS RCD, QCD and Moon Modular M554 Octal Divider. The samples from the Phonogene are switched in and out randomly by a Yusynth Random Gates module then sent into a Modcan 73B Dual Delay in resample mode.

Other filters used were the Synthetic Sound Labs Steiner, Ken Stone CGS77 Serge 1973 State Variable Resonant, Oakley VCSVF and Q150 transistor ladder 24dB/four pole and an FFB."

Switched on Microbrute

Published on Jul 17, 2016 DouglasHurdGymnast

"Spent this morning recording four bagatelles of pure Microbrute straight to a DP008-EX recorder out in the garden (no midi or fx other than the stock verb....limitations and all that jazz). I love this little synth!

1 - Two Part Invention
Ended up writing it down first for convenience. It's baroque style but an original piece so no lawsuits please :)

2 - CCTV
The Microbrute rocks this sort of stuff

3 - Drivebrute
Honestly, I'd love to just write old game music forever

4 - Goodbye
Or "ciao meow" as I lamely say to my cat. I think the MB copes quite well with mellower material, which I hadn't really appreciated until now.

Gear: Microbrute, DP008-EX and lawnmower extension lead"
