Moog Jam 18 - West Coast Synthesis with a Sub37

Published on Jul 18, 2016 Modular Landing

"Did you know you can do experimental west coast synthesis with a Moog Sub37? I didn't, until I started exploring this beast. I found sounds that I would normally associate with my modular system -- but coming out of a Moog! Great fun! The audio is only one live performance of the Sub37 with Valhalla reverb. Okay, this might not count at West Coast to some -- don't shoot me! -- but it's still outside what we generally associate with Moog, so I thought I'd share! Prior to this, I had only done things like this on a modular."

POLYMOOG 203A classic analogue synth

via this auction

"Classic Polymoog 203a (The fully programmable Polymoog version) in good working condition. I have owned this Polymoog for over 3 years and it has never given me any trouble. The guy I bought it from said he had it electronically refurbished and I think this is why this Polymoog is reliable. Serial number is well over 3000 which means it is one of the Polymoogs you want. Sounds beautiful and has a real vintage vibe to it which makes it great to sit at and play."

Introducing the Onde Magnétique OM-1 Cassette Synthesizer

Published on Jul 5, 2016 Scott Campbell

"The OM-1 Cassette Synthesizer is an analog musical instrument built around the concept that when a continuous tone/note is recorded to tape, its pitch will change as the tape's playback speed is increased or decreased. Individual notes are playable via the 8 buttons (keys), each with a tuning knob directly above it. The volume of the notes can be articulated by using the pressure sensitive volume control - the harder its pressed, the louder the note. A three position switch controls attack/release response of the audio output - Short, Medium, and Long. CV/Gate inputs allow control over the cassette's pitch and volume from a linear (non-quantized) voltage sequencer."

WIGGLE 1.1.5 Update Sound Demo

Published on Jul 16, 2016 2nd Sense Audio

"WIGGLE 1.1.5 now with more than 400 presets.
All presets in this demo are programmed by Cyberworm."

"2nd Sense Audio has released 1.1.5 of its dynamic waveshaping synthesizer WIGGLE. The new version has added Copy & Paste OP settings/parameters function which could speed up sound design workflow. Version 1.1.5 has also added 67 new factory presets. WIGGLE now comes with 424 factory presets.

WIGGLE 1.1.5 update:

Added Copy & Paste OP settings/parameters function. Users can copy an OP settings and paste it to another OP in the same preset or another preset;

Limit parameter value display to 2 decimal places;

Added 67 new factory presets made by several sound designers around the world. Now Wiggle ships with 424 factory presets;
Added version tag for factory presets.

WIGGLE 1.1.3 update:

Added a selection box for sustain pedal CC;
Added 100 more new factory presets;
Fixed user experience issues of the virtual keyboard in WIGGLE standalone, where the virtual keyboard will block the controls at behind.

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.
Interactive guide – A short interactive tutorial walks you through the basic functions of WIGGLE upon its first launch. You will get to a good start point in minutes.
Compatibility – VST, AU, AAX, Standalone, Windows/Mac OS X, 32/64 bit supported"

Some great history in this one.

"Hey Guys,

I have been servicing a very special Memorymoog for my friend Doug Wyatt. This is one of his personal Memorymoogs that Bob Moog helped him repair back in the late 90's early 2000's.

It was an amazing experience for me to service this unit for Doug and am very happy to announce I got it 100% working for him. this is about my 7th Memorymoog to service and learn a little something new each time."

Korg 770 Analog Synthesizer SN 77033

via this auction

"The badassery of the Korg 770 is indisputable. Gnarly, snarling, otherworldly, funk vessel. This one has a few battle scars cosmetically but has been restored internally and sounds amazing. Recapped throughout and many other components replaced. It did have a cv/gate mod installed but it has since been removed. The holes are still in the case and it's easy enough to redo the mod if desired."

Patch Notes #6 - Korg SQ-1 As Eurorack Sequencer

Published on Jul 18, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes for our recent video on using the SQ-1 as a USB MIDI to CV Converter. However, the SQ-1 is not performing that function here, instead sequencing and clocking the Eurorack system.

The SQ-1 is sending pitch and gate CV from the channel A outputs to the Make Noise 0-Coast, which is playing the 16 step plucky melodic riff. The channel B gate CV out is routed to the Varigate 4, which is sequencing the kick drum generated by the Malekko Dual Borg filter (see our relevant tutorial video).

The Sync Out is routed to the Make Noise Tempi, which is in turn sending clocks to the Make Noise René, Brains, Wogglebug and finally, the Ornament & Crime (in Piqued mode).

René is sending pitch CV to a buffered mult, which splits the signal to the Make Noise DPO playing the bass, routed through the MMG and Optomix, with one looping LFO from the Malekko ADLFO controlling the filter cutoff.

The mult also routes to Mutable Braids in WTx4 mode (tuned a perfect 5th up from the bass) which is playing the chords/pads. Braids Timbre is being modulated by an internal LFO, part of the Bees in the Trees alt firmware.

Brains is clocking Pressure Points and Analog Memory, 5 channels of which are modulating the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas pitch, attack, morph, harm and spread settings, while the Wogglebug is modulating decay and fold amounts, providing the glitchier drum elements.

Another channel from Pressure Points is routed to CV input 4 on the Ornament & Crime, modulating the Euclidean fill amount on the rhythms that are triggering the BI.

All channels are then routed through the Malekko Mix4, and then through Mutable Warps running Parasite firmware in ping pong delay mode.

Aside from the pitch and gate CV coming from the SQ-1, the 0-Coast is internally patched. The stepped random voltage source is multed, and routed to both the Contour decay length and Slope time. The triangle LFO from the MIDI B CV port (see our 0-Coast Hidden LFOs video) is routed to the Overtone input. Finally the Slope output is routed to the FM input on the Oscillator."

A bassline with the Korg MS-20 mini / KR-55

Published on Jul 18, 2016 Jordan Passmore

"This demo features the Korg MS-20 mini synthesizer, Korg KR-55 analog drum machine, Korg SQ-1 sequencer and Ace Tone MP-44 mixer (w/ spring reverb).

The Korg KR-55 is sending a sync trigger to the SQ-1 which is sequencing the MS-20 mini. The drum machine and synth are mixed on an Ace Tone MP-44 mixer and the mixer's spring reverb is being used on the MS-20 mini and the KR-55 occasionally. The mixed signal is then recorded on my PC with a Roland Super UA audio interface."

"Amazing things you can do with Clouds! This music was made on a modular synthesizer and centers around the following modules:
Pamela's workout as main clock, clocking Brains/PP and the Rene, which is sequencing the Dixie.
Dixie self-patched with Sub into PWM and Triangle out into FM2 in.
PP row 1 is going into FM1 of the Dixie to transpose it. PP rows 2 and 3 into Echophon Feedback and Echo inputs.
Dixie output into Echophon. Echophon output into Clouds.
Batumi LFO's modulating Clouds -- freq input from Pamela's Workout to sync with the main clock.
Clouds is providing the special effects. It is in the Looping Delay (third) mode."
