Timbre Wolf Standalone Jams by Steppenwolf von Mensch

"The Timbre Wolf gets a lot of hate for its sound and features, but most probably don't know what it is capable of. Here are two tracks I've made using the Timbre Wolf standalone, recorded straight into my SP-404SX with reverb FX on the input. No additional processing was used.

Does it really sound all that bad and limited? ;)"

"A second run through a patch. Some changes across the modular included rework of the BDrum & clicky sound and timing to the chord changes on the Tonnetz Sequent line."

“Manifestation Manual”

Dream Suite: Stages 1-2 (Dream / Will)

Performed live on a modular synthesizer.

Mixed in Ableton Live.



Dream Suite: A Manifestation Manual

• Dream
• Will
• Expand
• Flourish
• Release

In the first two movements, we dream the dream then use our will to burn all obstacles on the path to manifestation. We complete the second stage exhausted, only to reemerge from the ashes in the third stage, reborn and ready to expand. The dream seed fuels our expansion as we flourish and learn how to let go.


Patch Notes #12 - Make Noise 0-Coast Slope Section

Published on Aug 7, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes for our examination of the Make Noise 0-Coast tabletop modular synthesizer and the Slope section. Patch notes in the description!

The 0-Coast is playing the bass tones, sequenced by the Korg SQ-1, which is synced to Tempi. The stepped random output is routed to the Contour section decay length, and one channel on the Malekko Varigate 4 is triggering the Slope section which is modulating the Multiply section. (This is not the same patch as demonstrated in the corresponding tutorial, but that's gonna happen sometimes.)

Ornament & Crime is being used in Quadraturia mode, receiving CV from the triangle wave output from the Malekko Anti-Osc modulating LFO frequency and the Sputnik Oscillator triangle wave modulating the coupling amount. Output A is routed to the Mod Bus index input on the DPO, channel B is routed to the Slope time on the 0-Coast while channel C is controlling the Overtone amount. The output from the 0-Coast is routed to the Malekko Mix4.

The lead sequence is coming from the QCV output on the Make Noise René in Snake mode (clocked from Tempi) into the DPO. The final output of the DPO is routed through the MMG then to the Optomix as the VCA/LPG. The René X-Gate output is routed Channel 4 on Maths, which is controlling the Optomix on this voice. From the Optomix output, the voice is routed to the Mix4.

The Wogglebug is also being clocked by Tempi, sending the stepped random output to the MMG filter cutoff and the smooth random output to the Shape input on the DPO.

Braids is in Meta mode, generating it's own short envelopes to create a glitchy, high frequency sequence. The pitch is modulated by channel 4 on the Ornament & Crime, Meta mode is modulated by the Mayhem output from the Malekko Anti-Osc, and the sequence is triggered by a channel on Tempi.

The Kick is from the Malekko Dual Borg, Snare is from the Noise Engineering Basilimus Iteritas, Hihat is coming from the noise generator in the Roland Scooper, all sequenced from the Varigate 4 and routed through the Scooper, then back to the Mix4 with everything else. Tempi is clocking Brains and Pressure Points, 2 channels of which are routed through the Doepfer A-151-2 sequential switch (itself triggered by another row of Pressure Points) and routed to an internal low pass filter on Scooper.

From the Mix4 to the Mutable Warps Parasite alt firmware delays (I really need a reverb module) and out."

You'll find the sample set at Seaweed Factory

"Here is a complete sample set of the Casio Rapman keyboard. Hits come from drum pads and scratch wheel on the device. Each patch was multi-sampled, with a C note for three octaves. Patch 41 is percussive and has 4 hits instead. Each Rap is a drum loop, sometimes with bass or keys added."

Peter Pringle's Keyboard Extension for the Haken Continuum

Published on Aug 7, 2016 EaganMatrix Programming

"A brief discussion of my build and use of the keyboard extension for the Haken Continuum invented by Peter Pringle. For the 1/2 sized unit adapting the Novation Impulse 49 is an excellent choice if you can find a used or even better non-functional unit (as long as the key bed and springs are intact)."

TR-707 Volca FM Volca Sample Live House Jam

Published on Aug 7, 2016 Zachary Berry

"I'm obsessed with the 707.... Here I have it as the master synced to the Volca sample (with the stock sample set), which is synced to the Volca FM. 707 is set to shuffle level 2 and the Sample has it's own swing dialed in.

The Sample is pretty noisy, I think it's the el cheapo 4-way Volca AC Adapter I have. WHATEVER IT ADDS CHARACTER.

No effects other than a slight reverb put on the FM track after recording in Logic. Recorded with a Focusrite red box thing. You know the one."

Sequential Circuits/Oberheim OB-6: Video Synthesizer Improvisation

Published on Aug 7, 2016 Joseph McGinty

"Improvisation with the Sequential Circuits OB-6 and the Signal Culture SSSCan Video Synthesizer app.
Video effects were controlled by the OB-6 via MIDI.
All sounds from the OB-6, no effects, no sequencing.
I improvised a first take while filming. Video effects were done in real time while at the same time manipulating the OB-6 patch.
After that, I did my best to follow whatever it was that I did and added some overdubs."

"30 of my own Patches on the Dave Smith/Tom Oberheim Synth. A few are tweaked presets, but most of them are from scratch. It's a very diverse sounding Synth and I just love the 12db Filter. I've only used the on-board FX and while some may prefer the FX turned off, for me I made them with the FX in mind."

Ambient modular synth, self-running drone: "Shipyard" by POB

Published on Aug 7, 2016
Update: Fist posted at 2:38. Re-Published as "Shipyard"

"'Shipyard' is a live modular synthesizer performance -- my first attempt at something that's dark, ambient, and lots of drone sounds.

I let the synth run by itself, only turning off/on voices throughout the piece.

The Intellijel Dixie II+ and Make Noise DPO run the show as far as oscillators, with reverb from the Erbe Verb and delay from 4ms Dual Looping Delay. Full list of modules below.

If you hear voices chanting "ha ha ha" in the middle, that is part of the reversed backmasking sample from Prince's 1984 album, Purple Rain. Near the end of the song, the music stops into the sound of rain and wind. There is singing, but played in reverse, but for this track I reversed it again. The vocals are Prince singing.

I used 40 patch cables for this patch.

Candle is awesome BTW. Whiskey and Tobacco from Northern Lights :)


All sounds mixed out through Pittsburgh Modular's Outs, sent to Ableton Live for master file creation for YouTube, SoundCloud, and Instagram.

I recorded video with an iPhone 6+ then manually synced the video with the audio using iMovie.

All modules were inside a 12U Gemini 0104 case from Monorocket, a 6U case from Dark Modular, and Make Noise's 3U powered skiff.

Modules used:
Pingable Envelope Generator by 4MS
Oscillator by Pittsburgh
K4815 Pattern Generator by Kilpatrick Audio
Nebulae by QuBit Electronix
Elements by Mutable Instruments
MTE 4 by Malekko
STO by Make Noise
Selector by Sputnik Modular
Dixie II+ by Intellijel
Multiplicity by Division6

DPO by MakeNoise

Genshi Media Group Live Performance at Ford Food & Drink PDX - 08/06/2016

Published on Aug 7, 2016 Genshi Media Group

"::| Dedicated to Benjamin Dennis Myers: Nov. 26, 1985 - Jul. 31, 2016 |::

Captured with my new GoPro camera (with both camera audio as well as direct audio from my sub-mixer using the Zoom H4n) my live performance at Ford Food & Drink for Lifelike Family's monthly "Abstracted" event.

In the first half of the video I unfortunately was having pretty major technical issues with the tc electronic Ditto X4 looper pedal... the second loop channel wouldn't record, then it wouldn't playback unless I slightly moved the volume knob, then it wouldn't sync properly) so a lot of fumbling around at first.

Also, I didn't really get a chance to work this piece out, as we had a soul crushing tragedy in our family this previous week... completely drained us.

The first half was improvised live looping with the Korg Minilogue into a Strymon El Capistan, then into the Ditto X4 which then went to a Strymon blueSky. The second half featured the Make Noise 0-Coast with additional Eurorack modules by Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, Intellijel Designs, Noise Engineering, Sputnik Modular and additional sequencing from the Arturia Beatstep Pro."
