Spectralis and Accelerator Manhatten Jam

Published on Aug 12, 2016 Jörg Schaaf

"During the Betatest of the firmware 1.71 of our Spectralis 1, I produced this little piece of music. I strong believe in the fact, that most bugs occur during the normal work and not when you try to locate problems. I did that music already in January 2016. I liked the patterns so much, that I played some Accelerator overdubs and created a complete song from that patterns. However - I never did a video for it and I thought, the time is right to do something for the track. I used some footage I shoot with my mobile phone and my DSLR in Manhatten a couple of years ago. A big thank you to all these people who walked backwards for my footage. That was a great help to create something special ;-)"

Meng Qi Hand Gestural Controller

Hand / Gestural Controller / Brief Introduction

Published on Aug 12, 2016 Meng Qi

"Buy :


A collection of real time functions integrated with hand gestures and a trigger input.
Your muscle memories in your synth patch.

hold REC button to record;
a quick tap on REC clears the memory;
realtime gestures override playback and interrupts EOL trigger output;
when memory is clear, EOL goes high to indicate the absence of gestures;
hold REC for 4 secs to switch between LFO and ENV mode;
slew smoothes the slopes;
max recording time : 2.22 seconds

It’s a controller, lfo, envelope, clock source, trigger delay. But here the slopes are played by you.

Synthrotek ADSR Eurorack Envelope Generator Module - Modular Synthesis

Published on Aug 12, 2016 synthrotek

"The Synthrotek ADSR is a small and simple envelope generator with some very useful features. CV is additive for overall length of ADR stages in ADSR mode, add even more length to just the Release stage by adding CV into the Release jack. AR mode with CV over release length allows for snappy to long dynamic rhythm lengths. Very short minimum lengths, self cycling and a maximum output of 5 volts makes this tiny (4HP) envelope a very feature packed and versatile module.

4HP wide
37mm Module Depth
CV over ADR
CV over Release
ADSR or AR mode
Exponential or Linear Curves
Led indication for each section
30mA maximum current draw on +12v rail
self cycling"

"After the 'first patch' [video here] - this is the full overview of the Malekko AD/LFO. Had another idea jamming with the module so I'll have a follow up video too. Just a short one playing with another idea. Lot of love for this thing. Just super useful to have around. Lot of love for the Malekko / Darkplace team too, they're great :)"

Volca FM Keystep PO-12 Cuckoo Jam

Published on Aug 12, 2016 cuckoomusic

"Hello everyone! (ps: chapters below, in description)
Here's an unedited real-time recording of 6 jams using the Korg Volca FM, the Arturia Keystep MIDI keyboard, the Teenage Engineering PO-12 drum machine, and some minor, but important use of the iOS app Midiflow to route and filter MIDI between the device. In this case I also to used Midiflow to convert the Mod wheel to the VolcaFM's Velocity (cc41).

I decided to keep it unedited to show curious watchers the complete workflow, and also to highlight how fun the Keystep is! I love the sequencer, the arpeggio, the easy-to-access note gate and and swing. This is all made with musicians in mind. It's great to make a basic sequencer on the Volca. And then use the Keystep to play with its own sequencer on top of the Volca. And in the end freestyle while both of the sequencers are running. Great fun!

The Volca FM sound is wonderful. It really is wonderful. I think some FM synthesis at times tend to sound artificial and hard on your brain. But KORG has done a wonderful job, creating a warm and lovely FM engine. You can still go crazy with FM overtones, but it just sounds "right".

Ok ladies and gents, and everyone else.
Enjoy! ;-)

Joey Gage in the studio with the Hyve Touch Synthesizer

Published on Aug 12, 2016 Skot Wiedmann

"Joey Gage pursues freedom of expression and gets a hands-on experience with the Hyve Touch Synthesizer. "It’s just interesting to go from trombone and guitar, which are almost similar in a way where the tone you are going to get on a guitar is based on your finger movement and how you are playing it, same with a trombone. It kind of makes the Hyve synthesizer feel more natural and organic in a way that what you put into it and how you touch the instrument actually affects the sound."

Sampleslicer beat slices 1

"this video is recorded without any effects directly with the internal mic of the camera.
The beat is sampled from an electribe er-1. The sampleslicer is designed to work on modular audio level so it's best to use an external audio input module to get the audio on the right level."

"The AIRA Effector DEMORA is a high-resolution delay that can create a wide range of delay line effects like chorus, flanging, ping-pong delays and wide stereo echoes. Combing the DEMORA with the JX-03 gives the classic synthesizer sound some width and ambience for percussive plucks and washed-out pads – and everything in between!"
