"Slate" - Early 1970s progressive psychedelic rock

Published on Sep 11, 2016 SynthMania

"Very trippy one. The modular's high volume in relation to the other instruments is a stylistic choice, not an oversight in mixing."

DreamsOfWires - Microbrute 'Mass Effect'

Published on Sep 11, 2016 DreamsOfWires

"A re-recording of something I recently put on Soundcloud. It made me think of some old Sci-fi films I saw as a kid, which got me in the mood for playing the Mass Effect games again... for the 5th time :/
Anyway, I recorded some footage of the game to accompany the music, which comprises of a one-take track of the on-board sequencer, and two overdubbed tracks of leads and noises. Recorded into Cubasis on an iPad with AUFX Dub and AltiSpace for delay and reverb."

Voyager Delirium

Published on Sep 10, 2016 Praxis Axis

"I created this music as a kind of challenge and homage: To use a single monosynth as the sound source for an entire tune; that synth being the mighty Moog Voyager.

This synth is sometimes misunderstood. Its preset tones are rich yet very smooth, and this prompts some people to think it's too "vanilla" sounding. But this kind of complex monosynth takes months of messing with to find its full capacity, which is buried somewhere deep in its modulation routing capabilities with the magical third oscillator (which doubles as an LFO - great for complex FM). This video is partly to show the kinds of sounds a Voyager will make when you push it hard - well beyond even the famous Model D (tell me in the comments if you don't agree, but show me a D doing this kinda stuff, lol ;) )

Nonetheless, experienced ears will note that some processing is involved here. I'll fess up to all of it:
* Fabfilter delay on various voices - pretty obvious
* A bit of cheap reverb on some (not all) voices
More controversially:
* A small amount of saturation on *some* of the voices. Contrary to some reports, it's simply *not true* that the Voyager can't make aggressive, abrasive sounds, and though I've relied on a little saturation a few voices, there's plenty of moments when it's pure Voyager (including many of the aggressive or brassy-sounding lines).
* TC Electronics Mojomojo on some of the drums. You can overdrive the Voyager on its own (ie the headphone trick), but using a nice pedal like the Mojomojo is just easier and more versatile.

Drums on the Voyager don't happen very naturally. Here, the kick is still just res + decay + noise etc, etc (you can see me building one in the video actually), but running drums through a pedal helps to control / compress sub bass in a very dependable manner. Generally I haven't used the overdrive pedal on pitched voices - I've tried to show off what the instrument can do (mostly) by itself. The drum sounds are layered, to give them a slightly more "contemporary" sound (I don't really do techno ;) ). The noise generator really helps here, and a bit of gate reverb in the DAW does the rest. Sweeping the noise up with an envelope (or just manually) provides the pre-hit sweep effect.

Any questions about the production are most welcome."

Siel Orchestra 2 Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Up for sale is my 1980s Siel Orchestra 2, or OR-400. If you have been lusting for a truly lush, and versatile polyphonic analog synthesizer capable of classic string sounds, weird organ, and of course squelchy raw basslines and leads, this is it. This is the exact same synth as the Sequential Circuits Prelude, except manufactured in Italy, which of course makes it exceptionally cooler. I bought this in 2010 from Switched On in Austin, TX and it is in INCREDIBLE shape. The EQ on it is POWERFUL and also the bucket brigade flanger. The Orchestra 2 is a bit of a secret in the synth junkie world (which I know extremely well) and you will have a unique dream machine here."

Roland SVC-350 Vocoder SN 393334

via this auction

"For sale is a rare vintage Roland SVC-350 vocoder. It's fully functional and in great condition. Runs at 117v USA voltage. The SVC350 is similar to vocoder section in the VP330, but in a smaller rack form. Yet unlike the VP330, the SVC350 has graphic EQ section that allows you to shape the tone with more control than a VP330 does. This is a classic sounding vocoder, really awesome with vocals and synthesizers but especially cool when paired with drum machines, guitars and effects. Check out pictures below for more details to make sure you like it. Don't miss out!"

Sadly somewhere around 3:30 something went wrong with the sound, not sure why."
