PATCH.DIARY.2016.09.21 from Phosfiend Systems on Vimeo.

"A fun patch with a new approach to the Shapeshifter for me. The main sweepy voices are derived from pitched noise from osc 2 on the Shapeshifter, with some random modular and some manual wavetable scanning. Osc 1 is actually the kick, with a basic sine getting pinged in percussion mode, with a snappy but variable envelope from the quadra"

Roland SH-2 Synthesizer: SH2: Includes Briefcase + FM/Filter Input mod.

via this auction

"Key-action is noteworthy. Doing runs on it feels great. Bass monster. Oscilators sound 'alive'; raw.

My favorite mono to date for sure.

FM mod allows cross mod of OSC1. Also has filter input mod. I've never seen either on an SH2 before. Adds a lot of sonic variety to an already versatyle synth."

Roland TB-03 Bass Line Quick Start Videos

Published on Sep 22, 2016 RolandChannel

"The battery-powered TB-03 is a direct descendant of the famous TB-303 Bass Line Synth. The layout and controls are unchanged, so it works just like the original. It sounds like it too, thanks to Roland's advanced ACB technology that recreates the hypnotic liquid grooves of the magic silver box. But the new TB-03 goes even further, with several enhancements not found on the original model. The four-digit LED display makes programming easier and more accurate, while overdrive and delay effects let you unleash a twisted, tribal wall of sound to send the crowd into a frenzy. Back in the studio, the TB-03 can send control information via MIDI or its USB port, the latter of which also functions as a audio interface."

Roland TR-09 Rhythm Composer Quick Start Videos

Published on Sep 22, 2016 RolandChannel

"The influence of the TR-909 drum machine is still heard—and felt—more than three decades after it was launched. Now, the 909 sound is available as part of the Roland Boutique series in the form of the TR-09. Featuring the same front-panel layout and user interface of the original, the TR-09 is powered by Roland's ACB technology, delivering the speaker-pummelling power of the TR-909 in a super-affordable and portable format. Offering precise control over an array of drum parameters and the ability to keep playing when switching modes, the TR-09 may be compact, but it still has the power to move people. Studio sessions are well catered for too, with four separate outputs via USB audio, external instrument control via a trigger output, and USB MIDI."

Roland VP-03 Vocoder Quick Start Videos

Published on Sep 22, 2016 RolandChannel

"The VP-03 is a miniature version of the VP-330 Vocoder Plus, one of the most popular vocoders ever made. Part of the Roland Boutique series, the VP-03 brings together the worlds of synthesized sound and the human voice, using the latest ACB technology to accurately emulate the sound that made the original so influential. The VP-03 has the VP-330's vocoder, human voice, and strings sound sources on board, and comes with a gooseneck microphone. And when paired with the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit, you've got the authentic VP-330 vibe in a reliable, low-cost setup that's highly portable. There are new features too, including 16 Chord Memory setups and a Voice Step Sequencer for even more creative potential. Whether you want the classic, electro-infused "talking robot" sound or the expressive power of shaping synth sounds with the human voice, the VP-03 puts it all at your fingertips."

Patch Notes #20 - Electronic Drum Pads w/ 0-Coast & DU-SEQ

Published on Sep 22, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Putting this 16 year old homemade electronic drum pad to work with the DU-SEQ, the Make Noise 0-Coast and the rest of the eurorack system to generate some weird stuff for Patch Notes #20.

The DIY electronic drum pad is patched via RCA to 1/8" cable to the tempo in on the 0-Coast. The clock out is patched to the clock in on the DU-SEQ, which has it's pitch and gate patched back to the 0-Coast. In this configuration, the drum pad is clocking the 0-Coast and the DU-SEQ. The stepped random out on the 0-Coast is multed to the overtone CV input and the slope section time control. The multiply section is modulated by channel 2 on the Ornament & Crime in quadraturia mode. The slope output is routed back the FM input on the oscillator.

The 0-Coast is routed out through the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 with boost enabled for some warmth, then on the the Mutable Instruments Warps ping pong delay in the Parasites firmware, which is modulating the delay time with the internal LFO, and then out to the Malekko Mix 4.

The DU-SEQ is in CV address mode which acts like a sample & hold circuit, more on this in a coming video. The stage address is being modulated by a cycling channel on Maths. Maths' both input is in turn being modulated by one of the fluctuating random voltage outputs on the Sputnik Modular West Coast Random Source. One channel on the Malekko Varigate 4 is randomly gating the Ext gate input 1 on the DU-SEQ as well, which is assigned to one of the 8 steps in the sequence. Any time the step is played, the random gate sequence coming from the Varigate is heard until the sequence steps to another note.

The Korg SQ-1 is playing back the bass part on the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas, with the morph control modulated by another channel on the Ornament & Crime. The output is routed to the Mix 4.

Braids is droning around, with the pitch modulated by the Make Noise Wogglebug, and the timbre and color modulated by the leftover 2 LFOs on the Ornament & Crime. The output is multed through a buffered mult, and then routed to an input on the Sputnik Modular 4tap Delay as well as one of the crossfader inputs on the 4tap (so we can mix the clean and delayed signals). One of the 1/3 outputs on the delay is routed to the other input on the crossfader, with the second output sent to the Malekko Dual Borg filter in high pass mode, then back to another input on the delay creating a filtered feedback loop. The filter cutoff is being modulated by the cycling Malekko Envelator, while the West Coast Random Source fluctuating random voltage is modulating the delay time. Out from the delay to the Mix 4 with the rest and out.

Warning: Tweaking your modular should be done without drumsticks in hand."

Leaf Audio - NTBA *First Patch*

"Another 'first patch' video while some full overview videos are in the works. I've been having loads of fun with the Noise To Brain Adapter from Leaf Audio for a few months now. There's some great CV/gate based modes as well which I'll get into with the full overview video.

Groove for Don

Published on Sep 22, 2016 d4nnyp

"Recording/Video of a patch I built while spending a bit of time with my 200e after hearing about Don Buchla passing away.

Patched on a 200e system, patch plays itself, no tweaks. Just a nice groove showing off the sonic beauty of the Buchla 200e. Good headphones or Monitors are essential.
I do love sound art and noise, but I'm still a sucker for a nice Groove!

R.I.P. Don"

"I was looking for some new atmospheric sounds to use on a track and thought I would do a very quick clip to share. I'm still working on this weekends also.

$20 Lowery Wandering Genie Organ going into a wold of delay, reverb and some pitch shifting to create a much more unique sound. The top end still needs some taming but low in a track it would work really nice"

1979 YAMAHA CS-15 SN 6848

via this auction

"Vintage Yamaha CS-15, two-channel monophonic synthesizer. Multi-mode filters. Serial number 6848. Lightly used and in perfect working condition and cosmetic. I had the power supply replaced, pots and siders cleaned, and tuned up earlier this year. Everything works perfect. No flaws in sound or functionality. No dead keys. Knobs and slides are smooth. No sustain problems. It is well built and everything is very sturdy. It is missing a slide knob.

It has nice warm and rich sound. Machine has 2 VCF and can be played through 1 or both. Also, a 1/4" jack for inputing other instruments. I have been plugging in my bass guitar and drum machine for some nice sounds. I discovered there is fat 808-like low-end on this machine."

Make your lemons into a synth with this circuit :-

heres the schematic for the active filter, made by rene schmitz based off an MS20 filter, this forum is useful for it :-

Super simple build!

1 10k pot and 1 100nf ceramic capacitor and 2 jack sockets
mess around with values! and types of capacitors. the larger the capacitance and larger resistance, more frequencies filtered!

even try electrolytic capacitors! all the way up to 470uf! give it a go."

ARP Odyssey vs. Minimoog: Funk Bass Face-Off

Published on Sep 22, 2016 mootbooxle

"ARP Odyssey (Korg) and Minimoog Model D (reissue) go head-to-head in a funk bass showdown. Which one wins?
Both have been used for basslines on countless hit records. I love them both!

I was using the Mk1 Filter on the Odyssey (I prefer my ARP to sound like an ARP, plus it's what Herbie Hancock and George Duke used).
Drums are Oberheim DMX.

"A statement about Oberheim's "A big part of the "raw" sound of the early OBs is the VCA and voice summing audio circuit. The early stuff used a CA3080 OTA for both VCA and summing audio. Oberheim pushed the 3080s hard which pushed them into mild distortion. That 3080 overdrive contributed to the raw sound of early Oberheims.

The OB-Xa used the CEM3360 VCA in the voice summing circuit which was much cleaner and less distorted than the 3080 and that's when the sound started to change (VCA was still 3080). OB-8 further replaced the VCA with CEM3360 removing 3080s completely from the signal path. Tom Oberheim used to complain that the OB-8 was "too clean" and this is why.

That's why the progression of Oberheims got less raw sounding"."

According to listing this particular OB-Xa was previously owned by Synthartist69, and is the one featured in this video.
