New Cimmerian Caves - Dual Echo/Vibrato/Chorus + Fuzz by Artificial Noise

Published on Jul 28, 2016 Artificial Noise

"Cimmerian Caves, the newest product from Artificial Noise, is a dual Echo/Vibrato/Chorus effects unit with Fuzz Distortion.

Dark, warbly and tape-like. Dense modulating echo's bouncing from ear to ear. Thick, wooly tube-like distortion. Most definitely NOT a sterile clean delay, but warm and full of character.

When the poet Homer talked of Cimmeria, he called it the land of fog and darkness at the edge of Hades. Artificial Noise has taken those words as inspiration for the Cimmerian Cave effects unit.

In the unit are two Echo "Blocks" that can be either Echo/Delay (approx. 925ms max delay time), Vibrato, Chorus or some combination of above. Each block can run in parallel and panned Left to Right, making for great Stereophonic effects, or they can be run in series (Echo 1 into Echo 2). Along with the two effects blocks there is also a Fuzz effect, which runs through both blocks. Cimmerian Caves is a hybrid of analog and digital circuitry, utilizing both worlds for maximum effect.

Cimmerian Caves works great with synthesizers or any line level instrument. And yes, it also works great with guitar and bass too!

No audio processing (effects, eq, compression, etc) was used in the video except Cimmerian Caves.

It's available for pre-sale now at Artificial Noise:

Special pre-sale price!!
$325, plus shipping ($20 off)"

Roland Aira / Boutique - Noisy Products! ?

Published on Jul 27, 2016 LektroiD

Anyone else experiencing this with their Boutiques? I haven't heard any complaints before now. Curious if this is unique to his setup for some reason.

"Over the past few years Roland have been steadily remodelling their classic series. Too good to be true? Well, these machines appear to have a big problem in the studio: Noise! I'm using shielded audio cables on all of the Boutiques, and Van Damme studio cables on the TR-8."

"Cosmetically amazing 35+ year old semi modular synthesizer.

Easily integrated into your euro rack set up with a 3.5 mm mini jack interfacing.

Use as a master keyboard or great for additional processing or CV control.

The external CV in slider cap has a micro dent in the middle.

It has a small educational department sticker just above the keyboard.

One slight shallow cut in the power cord that isn't an issue as no internal wires have been damaged.

NO crazy spider web style rust under the paint job at all.

Absolutely killer response keyboard timing. NO slow rise soft blow midi toilet here."

New Behringer 12 Voice Analog Synth will be Called the DeepMind12 and Have Built In Effects & More


Published on Jul 28, 2016 BEHRINGER

In this 5th video you can see the name of the synth is the DeepMind12, and it will include routable effects and a graphical screen. You can also see a Powered by KLARK TEKNIK on it. KLARK TEKNIK are makers of signal processors and mixers. Note there are 4 FX slots. Effects seen include various types of Chorus, RackAmp, Delay, Reverb. Mood Filter, Flanger, Enhancer, and Dual Pitch can also be spotted as well. Each affect appears to have a number of editable parameters. You can see the RackAmp has parameters for PRE, BUZ, PMC, CRM, DRV, LVL, LOW, HI, CAE. The DSP algorithms are from Klark Teknik and TC Electronic. There is also expected to be a dedicated iPad Editor. At :16 you can see what appears to be it resting on top on top (screen grab further below). Note the different Reverb types in the editor. At :21 in the video you can see the routing of the effects change. At :34 it appears you can stack the same effect types - you can see Hall Reverb in slot 1 and in slot 4 pictured below. Word is it will have a built in arpeggiator as well.

All parts here, including the artist's rendition.

This one in via Soviet Space Child.

Update: An update via Uli Bheringer on the new DeepMind12, spotted by Soviet Space Child:

"The DeepMind12 has 4 integrated FX Engines which can we used simultaneously but also synced to the synthesizer itself. Each engine is loaded with more than 30 high-quality FX algorithms from TC Electronic and Klark Teknik. These are true world-class FX, many of which have been derived from TC Electronic's acclaimed signal processors as well as Midas' high-end mixing consoles.

As a world's first, the DeepMind has built in Wifi and allows for full remote control of nearly all parameters - all through typical tablets.

While the price has not been confirmed nor any price indication been given to retailers, we like to manage expectations.
With approx. 4,000 components, the DeepMind12 is one of the most complex synthesizers that has ever been built. Due to its discrete design structure, it has vastly more components than you will likely find in any of the current synthesizers on the market.

While it has always been our company philosophy to work on very small margins, we would however never sacrifice component or manufacturing quality nor sell below cost. Like all our products, the DeepMind12 will come with a 3 Year Warranty program.

These are truly exciting times and thank you for all your interest and support :-)

SYNTAR Hoodies & T-Shirts from Synthrotek

You'll find them at Synthrotek.

Note there are two versions for each.

"Long before anyone had coined the word 'keytar' and before anyone else thought of putting the guts of a synthesizer into a wearable performance keyboard, George Mattson created such an animal and dubbed it the Syntar. The front of the hoodie says 'Syntar...' The back shows the large graphic of the Syntar.

Now you can celebrate the Syntar in a whole new form!

There are two options for the graphics:
1. The front shows the large graphic of the Syntar (Large graphic on front, none on back).
2. The front of the t-shirt says 'Syntar...' The back shows the large graphic of the Syntar (Small graphic on front, large graphic on back)."
