Improvisation LXIX: DSI Prophet '08

Published on Jul 27, 2016 Sacred Synthesis

"A mostly soft and muted piece using a pair of dreamy patches from the Prophet '08s. I wanted to showcase the darker side of the instrument, using sounds far from its typical bright and bristly reputation.

A steady pulsing rhythm suggests the lives and activity, the joys and tragedies, that once filled this abandoned house.

DSI Prophet '08 Keyboard (2)

Hammond XPK 200L Pedalboard

Reverb from Lexicon MX300
Delay from Alesis Nanoverb 2

Performed live and recorded directly to CD"

Offset Organism (Circuit, Bent SR-16 & Retroverb)

Published on Jul 27, 2016 HardtekStudios

"Download the audio track for FREE here-
Having fun playing with some odd, off set rhythms. Circuit is going strait to the mixer which is then feeding Logic. The circuit bent SR-16 is going into the Retroverb then into the mixer feeding Logic. The track was then treated with some more verb, EQ & compression."

Rephazer -Twilight is Falling (Octatrack, A4, OP-1, vPed)

Published on Jul 27, 2016 Rephazer

"Hello dear subscribers and visitors,

Here is a track I've made inspired by this very odd, vague and macabre animation movie called 'Twilight is Falling' which is created by Greg Elmensdorp so all credits regarding the used bits of animation in this video goes to him.

The video that belongs to the audio performance was faulty unfortunately.. so all other video is taken from various 'live jam takes' while creating and recording the track.

Technical details for the ones interested:

OP-1 is used for creating and arranging the song and is also the sound source for recording 'otherworldly sounds' to tape.
Octatrack is used for midi sequencing, classical violin and additional drums.
Analog Four is used for atmospheric sounds with lots of reverb
vPed is used for the bassline (Mono/Fury)
Reel-to-reel tape machine is used for playing 'other worldly radio sounds' recorded from the OP-1 on lowest (quality) speed.

I hope you like it and if you do.. please feel free to like, share, comment and subscribe!


Roland Jupiter-4 Analog Synthesizer (1978) - Dust in the Wind

Published on Jul 27, 2016 RetroSound

"(c) 2016 vintage synthesizer demo track by RetroSound

all synthesizer sounds: Roland Jupiter-4 analog synthesizer from the year 1978
I used the arpeggiator in random mode for the main theme. You can also hear the JP-4 filter modulation with the very fast LFO.
recording: multi-tracking without midi
fx: reverb and delay"

Politica Machina - Vers 2

Published on Jul 27, 2016 karl welty

"Using the newer XC18 module for bass synth with filter. The desk top modules supplemented by patches from the rack mount stuff. All tones generated using neon based oscillators except kick and snare. Bass line was manually swept in sync with cv/gate and drums coming from a laptop. Each overdub was an improvisation with a new patch. This seems a good sampler of the many sounds which can be derived using these neon based tone generators, both musical and/or discordant as the mood strikes."

1. A Demonstration Of Oskar Sala's Mixtur-Trautonium Formant Filters

A demonstration of the mixtur-trautonium's formant filters. The filter was originally designed by Freidrich Trautwein as vacuum tube (or rohrentechnik) technology in 1930, at the very beginnings of subtractive synthesis.( I mistakenly referred to subharmonic synthesis in my closing remarks) The filters here are version of the design from the halbeiter, or semiconductor mixtur trautonium dating from around 1989 and were made by Trautoniks. For further information, interviews with Oskar Sala, explanations of the instrument and musical examples visit Trautonist at:

Live Jam #44 - Drone / Techno - Eurorack modular synthesizer and Korg Volca Sample

Published on Jul 27, 2016 Monotrail

Check out the storm trooper on the cat. Star Wars.

"I am working towards a 30min liveset. So more frequently I will be experimenting with a little longer sessions. Here is a more beat driven patch I play out for about 16min.


Patch description:

Kick, hats, and some percussion are from the Korg Volca Sample. Audio from the Volca to the a119 external in, and then to the synthrotek echo, modulated with sample and hold. Fast hihats are noise through a vca. Some random noise hits at the beginning are triggered by the dual quantizer, striking the Lxd. Main voice is The saw wave from the Dixie II through the uFold and Make noise MMG. uFold is modulated with a slow sine from Peaks, and the MMG with rhythmic sample and hold. The dixie is fm'ed with a fast sine from the Peaks. Melody comes from a doepfer a143-4 tri through a attenuator and the a-156 quantizer. Second voice is a square from a143-4 through the wasp filter, modulated with S&H. Audio is split to the Mutable Instruments Clouds for some reverb and feedback,

Stuff used:
Korg Volca Sample and Eurorack modular system with:

Doepfer: a-118, a-119, a-124, a-143-4, a-148, a-156, a-160-2, a-199
Intellijel: Dixie II, uFold, Quadra, 2xTriat , Linux, mult
Make noise: MMG, Lxd
Mutable instruments: Clouds, Peaks
Synthrotek: Echo, Deluxe power

Quad attenuator

Audio via the Behringer mixer to a Moto Ultralite MK3 hybrid.
No external effects used."

Grendel DC-2e + RA-9 synth demo (official)

Published on Jul 27, 2016 EA78751

"I wanted to show some grimy electro sounds from the Grendel DC-2e Drone Commander 2 Eurorack voice module together with its brother, the Grendel RA-9 Grenadier. We've got the Grenadier's sequencer patched to the DC-2e's LFO CV input, for a sequenced LFO effect. The analog bass drum and snare drum are new prototypes from my lab. Well, that's all the sounds in this mix. Reaper DAW software and a 4-channel MIDI-to-CV converter made composing easy."
