LM118 Square-wave Oscillator

Published on Aug 8, 2016 karl welty

"My project the last two days. Had a bag of mil-spec metal can op-amps sitting in a box, purchased surplus 20+ years ago for cheap. LM118's. In the mood for a side trip from neon projects I thought I'd see what one could do in square-wave world. Turns out they are a potent and rich voice, and I could certainly see some future projects using them. I have lots of them. The rest of the parts for this one-off were left-overs and carport pickings. I also wanted to try the build technique of a PC board and stand offs from a faceplate. Multiple experiments, big fun, a learning project, and another trick for the DIY synthesis toolkit. All the sounds in this video were made by this device this afternoon."

TR-808 Sample Pattern Download by Ryan M Todd for 808 Day

"Decided to put together a little treat for my fellow gear enthusiast/producer types. It's samples of all my TR-808's drum voices as well as 30 sample patterns ranging from 80bpm all the way up to 130-something. Some dry, some with effects, some busy, some simple. Classic electro rap beats, Italo, janky wind-tunnel techno, WBMX-style house, etc. Anybody can use these patterns for whatever they want, no credit necessary.…" Puzzle

Just a few pics of my completed puzzle.

I didn't actually do the work though. :)

I gave it to my wife and daughter for Christmas this year as a bit of a gag gift. They love puzzles, and work on one almost every night, but they aren't into synths like me (they do support my habit though :). Well, they finally got around to tackling this one, and I was surprised to hear that they actually enjoyed it! They said it was a fun one because the pieces were distinct. On some puzzles where the patterns appear to be too similar it can be frustrating, but not so with this one.

Upcoming 3HP Zero Drum Module from DSP Synthesizers

via DSP Synthesizers

"Release for the revolutionary 3HP Zero drum module on the 1st of September.

Monophonic/Duophonic 44.1KHz drumsound.
Trig and accent inputs, either 1 trig and 1 accent or 2 trig inputs.
Mono jack output.
1 pitch knob.
1 decay knob.

What is so revolutionary about that?
It has no power connector.

Yes, thats right, it's passive and dont need any power.
The worlds first ghost powered eurorack module.

It gets its power from the triggers.
Put a few of them in a shoebox and run them from a Beatstep Pro.
No power cable needed.

And the best of all is the price.

It will be $40 prebuilt.

The cons: You have to wait until the 1st of September."

Hordijk Drone Project VIII

Published on Aug 8, 2016 Salz-Peter Zucker

"Live recorded modular synth patch using the portable Hordijk system and the Strymon El Capistan. No further effects used on the audio.

Rungler A and B get ring modulated, accompanied by a drone of both harmonic oscillators going through the shaper/phaser.

Self playing, only small adjustments on mixing and the echo."

Bob Moog Foundation Raffles Off a Vintage Polyphonic Memorymoog

via The Bob Moog Foundation

"We are excited to announce the launch of our summer 2016 raffle for a vintage Memorymoog synthesizer! Many of you have commented over the years how you covet owning a Memorymoog, so we thought we'd go big and make someone's dreams come true.

Enter to win the Memorymoog here!

The Memorymoog is one of the few polyphonic Moog synths, but there's much more to this powerhouse, including six-voice polyphony with three oscillators per voice, 18 oscillators that can be tuned in five seconds with the Auto Tune function, Oscillator Sync, Monophonic mode with user-allocated oscillator count, true Moog 24dB per octave filter (one for each voice, for a total of six!), a programmable arpeggiator and so much more. Read more here about the Memorymoog's extraordinary functionality.

All proceeds from the raffle support our important work in education and archival preservation!"

Original Roland TR-808 TV Commercial?

Roland TR-808 Original Advert

Published on Aug 7, 2016 Karl Charles

"The original Roland TR808 TV commercial from 1980."

"I’ve been digging through my archive looking for this since I saw the 808 doc last year at the BFI. Very happy to be able to share it for 808 day."

Update: at the very end of the video you will see a 1980 copyright for Origin Workshop.

"Origin Workshop is the home of Director Alexander Dunn and Producer Matthew Jarman.

After meeting while working on the feature documentary 808, they set up Origin Workshop in 2015
to develop new projects and craft content. They are currently developing a number of projects including
a film about the legendary RAK Studios in London."

DreamsOfWires - Arturia Microbrute (with Korg Volca Keys)

Published on Aug 5, 2016 DreamsOfWires

"I picked up a cheap Microbrute today, since I sold my Micromoog and Minibrute SE (not because it sounds like the offspring of the two), so the first thing I did with it was a little idea I'd already recorded using the Minibrute and Micromoog a while ago, but never got around to finishing and uploading it. I'll probably finish that version too and upload it to Soundcloud this week.

Anyway, this is pretty typical stuff from me really, sounding like something from a cheap slasher flick. The bass notes were done using the Volca Keys, both parts were recorded, improvised, and messed up live into Cubasis on an iPad, with AUFX:Dub and AudioReverb, using an Arturia Keystep purely as a keyboard.

Special thanks to those who bought my albums, it really is appreciated, it helps."

Hermigervill Plays Theremin vol. I – Le Cygne

Published on Aug 8, 2016 Hermigervill

"Hermigervill plays Le Cygne (The Swan) by Camille Saint-Saëns.

This is a Theremin standard which has been part of the Hermigervill live show for ages, but never properly recorded or documented.

The backing track is a MIDI track which runs through a MIDI modified Korg Polysix."

Malekko Heavy Industry - AD/LFO *FIRST PATCH*

Published on Aug 8, 2016

"Straight away I really like this module, love the module ... is loving part of a machine that's nearly useless on it's own weird - maybe ... but it's ace so it's ok! You've got 6 envelopes or LFOs grouped in two sets of 3 with a time switch (longer envelopes or shorter) and a loop switch per group of 3 ADs as well as sum outputs which are great for create new and more unique overlapping modulation shapes. Full overview video coming soon.

This patch is just 5 modules. The sound source is the ALM Akemie's Castle going into an Intellijel uVCA then into the TipTop Audio Z-DSP with the Halls Of Valhalla card. The AD/LFO modulates Akemie's Castle with the bottom three ADs triggered by the clock output of an SSF URA. The top three ADs are looping. The two S&H outputs on the URA modulate the amplitude of the A and B outputs on the two channels of the uVCA. Bias is used on the channels for constant level with added random amplitude on the stereo signals from the S&H."

"This is a vintage Moog Multimoog Analog Synthesizer. Excellent condition, very clean, minimal wear, no issues, all functions work perfectly. Fantastic & powerful analog synthesis with an incredible Sample & Hold, plus the filter on this synth sounds really gorgeous... Included are the original manual written by Tom Rhea & ac power cable. This synth can be used as a keyboard controller for Moog Modulars such as the Model 15 reissue, plus you'll have the two oscillators on board out to your mixer for more flexibility. A rare find in this condition, apparently only a 1,000 were made. Features include: 2 oscillators, a ribbon controller, variable waveforms, flexible Sample & Hold, LFO, aftertouch (for pitch, VCF, or LFO rate) and a great sounding 24dB Moog filter."

"This is the brand new Sensei Hybrid system from Studio Electronics. Full of sonic possibility and well equipped for fat analog and digital - hybrid sounds."

"SENSEI HYBRID resists analog purity for richly contrasting tones, modulation, and points of origin and purpose. Two stellar Eowave digital creations: the hypnotic and compelling CHARCOT CIRCLES: a 16 x 8 step sequencer, and STE. 16: a fiery, expansive, dual digital LFO, seem to have been waiting in the wings for just this moment to shine, as you might have guessed from their center-staging. Space Hardware's* GRAINY CLAMPIT: a granular and phase distortion additive oscillator, and QUADNIC: a 4 voice, 64 waveform digital oscillator, pair and push away from our pristine 8+ octave tracking discrete Class-A OSCILLATION module, in ways which must be experienced firsthand—a best of both worlds arrangement...

Three revered SE filters more than keep pace: SEM, 4075, and SE88."

Vintage Arp Sequencer Driving Moog Model 15 & More

MoogEHXdrumsArp01 Published on Jun 26, 2016 Chekmate 99

"Simple sequence to display the Arp Sequencer, Moog Model 15, EHX Space/Crash Drums, Clockworks, DarkTime sequencer, Moog phaser and CP-251.

The Arp Sequencer is driving the EHX Clockworks and pedals via multiple trigger outs (Gate 1 and Clock Out) as well as sending cv pitches to the Moog. The Clockworks is dividing the triggers between the pedals as well as the DarkTIme sequencer every 8 beats - DarkTime sends a cv to the Arp sequencer transposing pitch."

"The sun goes down, and the animals begin to roam. Headlights on the highway, a cool breeze through the windows. Magic is in the air, and the adventure begins.

The heat has been oppressive for a few weeks, so here is a warm track for y'all. Also, for any game nerds out there, the space exploration game "No Man's Sky" comes out tuesday and I will most likely capture some footage for a space themed track coming up. Thank you for listening and watching, and have a great week!

A Proper Roland Juno 6 Arppegiator Demo Technique

Published on Aug 8, 2016 farmyfarm

"Since most people tend to forget that 'Once upon a time' you had to get creative as 'Fuge' (Pardon my language) with the up/down down/up and, (if you were lucky JP-8 owners) random modes of yesteryears arpeggiator; I thought I'd try a nice EDM style groove with a TR-626 triggering a 16 note beat to the arp on my Roland Juno-6. It's a 44 second short one BUT makes it's case I think. I Hope you enjoy!"
