"Vanguards" - RS7000 + DW-8000 + ESQ1 + MS2000 + Radius

Published on Oct 13, 2016 Patrick Manderson

"'Vanguards' - RS7000 + DW-8000 + ESQ1 + MS2000 + Radius

This music was recorded live Friday afternoon on October 7 2016 using a Yamaha RS7000 sequencer and a room full of MIDI synthesizers.

All performances and automation were painstakingly programmed into the sequencer and played back through 2 mixers into 2 channels in Ableton.

This music was inspired by a rescued-from-the-dead Korg DW-6000. 5 patches are featured during the performance. The Korg MS-2000 contributed 3 patches that were tweaked to closely approximate the DW-6000 and was used in concert when the DW was busy. The Ensoniq ESQ1 emphasizes the chord changes in the first section a plays along with a soft filtered pad throughout the rest of the music. The Korg Radius took care of all hi-hat and splashing percussions using filtered noise. Kicks, snares and toms came from the Roland Super JV-1080 was also used for bass. The Yamaha RX-5 layer its toms on top of the JV-1080. The Roland Super JD-990 provided hi-fidelity portamentos and a reverberated pad of pulse waves. The Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 droned piano chords throughout most of the piece.


Novation Circuit driving Make Noise 0 Coast, Korg Poly61M and the wonderful Leploop

Published on Oct 13, 2016 -CALC-

"Circuit is the driving force behind this track, it's sequencing everything.

A MIDI splitter connects it to a Make Noise 0 Coast, Korg Poly 61M and (clocking) the sequencer of the Leploop.

Drum samples coupled with Leploop Cassa and noise hats are the rhythm back bone.

All the while, the 0 coast and Poly 61M are driven by synths 1+2 respectively.

Super basic patch on the 0 Coast mostly just set to the Triangle OSC which is peachy.

I was enjoying the lush chords mingling between the Korg (channelized to MIDI ch2) and the Synth 2 sound.

The Poly61 is becoming one of my favourite synths... has a character all of it's own to my ears, really basic programing but sounds great.

The Circuit synth engine however is super strong and creating yr own patches is definitely the way to go. There is some power to be unleashed.

Original Vintage Jen Sx-1000 Synth-Tone 1980 Italian Analog Synth

via this auction


As you can see I the pics, this vintage, c 1980 Jen sx-1000 synthtone is in excellent condition. It has just been calibrated, and is in 100% perfect working order. Every key, function, knob and switch operates as designed, and they synth sounds...amazing. This is a super rare beasty, the one made famous by Joy Division.

This synthesizer makes all of the beeps, boops, squishy leads, booming basses, and wacky modulation noises you want. You can also achieve nice n fat pulse width mod tones, and BOTH white and pink noise. The synth is in fair cosmetic condition, and looks so fresh with the wacky knobs and wood ends."

Roland CSQ-100 Digital CV/gate Sequencer

via this auction

"The Roland CSQ-100 is a microcomputer-controlled digital CV/gate Sequencer. It is much like the CSQ-600. However, it can only play one sequence at a time. Sequences can be recorded via an external CV/gate input or using step-time. Portamento can not be programmed, but is adjusted manually as a sequence is being played. Sequences can be saved and loaded via cassette interface.

This is EU 220V version in a very good condition. It was completeley cleaned and recapped by professional. Comes in nice looking retro box (not original)."

Dave Smith Instruments Introduces DSM03 Feedback Module

via Dave Smith Instruments

"Third Eurorack Module for Modular Systems Now Available from Acclaimed Synth Designer

San Francisco, CA—October 13, 2016—Dave Smith Instruments today introduced the DSM03 Feedback Module, their third offering for modular synthesizers. At the heart of the Eurorack-format module is a tuned feedback line with adjustable parameters for Amount and Tuning. It also features a newly-designed, resonant, low-pass filter for further signal processing. A noise source is also provided with Trigger In as well as Attack and Decay envelope controls to allow Karplus-Strong-type plucked string synthesis.

According to Dave Smith: “We adapted the feedback feature originally found in our Evolver, Pro 2, and Prophet 12 synths. The idea is that you have a tuned feedback loop that takes the audio output, runs it back through the filter, then through a delay line so you can perform Karplus-Strong synthesis—or just use it for mangling sounds.”
With regard to the filter, Smith added: “The 4-pole, resonant, lowpass filter is a new digital design, based partially on classic analog filters of the past, but with over-sampling and numerous tweaks in the signal path. There was no attempt to copy or duplicate a specific, existing filter. We simply wanted to provide a great-sounding design that works well both in the feedback context and as a stand-alone tone-shaping tool.”

The DSM03 module is a 10HP wide, standard Eurorack-format device with interconnections made using 3.5 mm phone jacks. A set of inputs allow individual voltage control of feedback amount, tuning, low-pass filter frequency, and filter resonance. The module provides one audio input and one audio output as well as an audio trigger input for the noise source. The digital filter’s signal path provides full 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution for superior audio fidelity.

Said Smith: “When it comes to designing our modules, we like to provide things that are slightly esoteric, but still fundamental to the Dave Smith sound. Tuned feedback has been a part of the tonal palette of our synthesizers since the Evolver, so we wanted modular users to have access to it, too. It offers a lot of really fun, creative possibilites.”

The DSM03 module is available now with a MAP of $275."

"The ADDAC501 does random CV generation and outputs it through four independent channels. You can control the desired range of voltages and time frequency at which new values are generated.

It can also be triggered by an external CV source and the output voltages can be either free or quantized (if you prefer to have a standard C Major Pentatonic scale).

Finally you can choose between pure randomness or a brownian distribution, for both the voltage and time intervals."

Reed & Caroline's Buchla & Singing Featuring a 1969 Buchla Harmonic Generator

via The Fader

Click through for the full post. Below are a couple of excerpts for the archives. The release was first announced here on MATRIXSYNTH last month with a video for "Singularity (We Bond)" featured on the album.

"Vince Clarke has an ear for melody. He's behind some of the biggest songs of the '80s and '90s, made during his time in the U.K. bands Yazoo, Erasure, and Depeche Mode. Since moving to Brooklyn in the '00s, where he has an extensive, synth-packed studio, he set up his own label, called Very Records. Tomorrow, he'll put out Very's second-ever release, the debut album from New York duo Reed & Caroline. Titled Buchla & Singing, it serves as an unintended but all the same very fitting tribute to the late synthesizer inventor Don Buchla."

"'To 'play' Buchla’s 1969 Harmonic generator properly, you have to hook up two keyboards, one for basic pitch, and another with 10 pressure pads for harmonics above the note (like when Hammond Organ players pull drawbars)," Reed added. "That’s the growly lead. It sounds like arpeggios, but it’s really the harmonic series. Replacing the second keyboard with a sequencer made the bass and the 'music box' parts. Since there was no turning back, I made all the percussion sounds on the Harmonic Generator in one pass by controlling FM feedback loops with two 16-step sequencers, like a cheesy DX7 patch that does kick, snare and cowbell. Of course, at the end of the day, all you remember is Caroline’s catchy aaah part.'" Read more on The Fader.

"This is an improvisation after a hard day of study while listening to Mac Quayle's excellent Mr. Robot OST ( Great music for concentration, maybe some of it has transcended to this jam.

Pittsburgh Move 208 case loaded with a Foundation 3.1+, some Mutable (Braids, Warps, Veils, Clouds), a Befaco Rampage (first jam with it, what an awesome module) and other extras. Arturia Minibrute does the 'bassline' sequence, and Octatrack on pads and drums.

Just some reverb and delay from Ableton Live (used as a way too expensive mixer this time), and output straight to a Roland R-5 recorder. Sound is pretty bad, and there is certain clipping, although some times it even sounds right. Camera placement and lightning are terrible, but the point was to do something quick and dirty."

"Download the mp3 here:

Late night jam with my new setup, it was really pleasing :)

I just programmed a very simple beat and recorded three chords on the Novation Circuit, then started jamming right away.

The Circuit is sending midi into the Moog Slim Phatty and the Elektron Analog Keys, The audio from all three is routed in the mixer.

There is also my strymon El Capistan on the mixer send loop. I only send the Moog on the El Capistan.

Last thing is the Korg NanoKontrol, I use it to control the Elektron Analog Keys parameters (through Live and Overbridge).

I don't use the Novation Circuit Synth sounds, just the Elektron and Moog analog goodness :) :) :)

I hope you'll like this. Give me some feedback!"

4ms Quad Clocking Harmonies (Modular Lullaby)

Published on Oct 13, 2016 Richard Devine

"This patch focused on using the 4ms Quad clocking distributor (QCD) module as the main brain to trigger the drums and musical sequences. The source clocking generator was the delptronics triggerman running in pattern mode. I set up 8 stored sequences that had slightly different shifted gate positions, and then outputted these assignments to the 4 channels on the 4ms OCD, and then took those outputs into separate gate triggers for the drum/snare/high-hats. The Modcan QLFO was also being clocked from the delptronics trigger man. Running from LFO output 1 in random stepped mode causing ever changing CV changes to the CV Clock Divider/Multiplier inputs, which gave the sequencing this interesting pace. I kept the sound sources very simple and limited. Using just 3 different intellijel dixies as the main sound sources (sine waves and one square). All three being triggered and then CV controlled in slow stepped mode from the Modcan Quad LFO, then into the µScale intelligent quantizer and interval generator for the melodies. The output was running through a Strymon BigSky reverb pedal using the "Chorale" algorithm for the slow like choir pads swelling delicately from the summed VCO's. One intellijel running in low octave pitch down for added baseline effect. Drums courtesy of the Mutable Instruments Braids for the snare drum running in CLK mode, with the envelope set to "ping" short attack. The kick drum was from the JoMox Membrane II, and hi-hats from the 4-hp whitenoise output from the BlueLantern running into a intellijel HexVCA. Another direct whitenoise out from the HexVCA running into a cwejman MMF-1 filter for the slow delicate automating filter sweeps, being modulated by cwejman D-LFO. This output was then taken into the Strymon Timeline for added depth and space. This patch was specifically created as a lullaby to play at bedtime for my baby Eila. Enjoy :-)"

MakeNoise Mysteron - Retrometabolism

Published on Oct 13, 2016 Richard Devine

"This patch was inspired from the Industrial Guitar Tones patch from the Mysteron Manual via (Walker Farrell (@VortexRanger). Instead of using a DPO in tune to a fth, or octave + above Mysteron I used a intelljiel quantizer, shifting through a 5 note scale, which was running into the Pitch1 input. The output was then put into a Synthesis Technology E580 resampling mini-delay, setting the offset time very low, while setting the feedback almost at 90%. Mix was set at 50%, while the offset CV control was being controlled by channel 1 output on the Modcan Quad LFO, which was being clocked by the SSF Ultra Random. The output from here was sent to the MakeNoise Erbverb reverb, that was being controlled by the seed out on the Animatter BrainSeed module, which was clocked from a SSF UltraRandom and using the A, A/B and B S&H outputs going into the "type", !!, "generation"and "depth" inputs. 4 note low bassline using one MakeNoise STO sequenced from one Brains and Pressure Points, running and /8 clocked speed from the A-160 Clock/Trigger Divider. Purple noise output creating the micro hi-hats triggered swing triplets via the 4ms QCD, and slow white noise rises from the SSF white noise output, controlled by a Dixie "triangle" wave output running and synced at a slow rate. Noise output then running into the Mungo d0 adding little glitches to the signal. The kick drum is the Tiptop 808 BD, set with a very short decay time, sequenced from channel 1 on the TriggerMan. Rich 4 part harmony chords recorded from a Roland Jupiter-6, and then played from the Qu-Bit Nebulae module triggered in time by a divided 32 from the doepfer A-160 to reset loop playback with the entire sequence. Reverb throws from multiplied output from Mysteron into the intelljiel HexVCA, channel 6 being opened by channel 4 random S&H output from the Modcan Quad LFO. Scattered single notes via the Mutable Instruments Braids triggered by the intelljiel "uscale", 16 note lowpass gate openings via the Optomix."

"CV/GATE MOD installed on buyer's request

CV signal level shift mod...
Old roland monosynths (like this 101 and SH-5) have F = 1[V] CV protocol while most of analog synths have C = 1[V], it means when you feed CV signal to other standard analog synth and play C key, the standard synth will sound F.
To adjust this mismatch we can install CV level shift circuit in CV OUT section.

GATE signal level shift mod...
Old roland monosynths (like this 101 and SH-5) require more than 10[V] GATE signalto start and contol EG (envelope generator) while most of modern analogue synths needs about 5[V], it means modern CV/GATE keyboards that feed 5[V] GATE signal won't start 101 EG.

"Update, 10/9/2016 - I have just ordered a replacement potentiometer from wine country, and It will be included with the sale. You can replace the potentiometer or just the nylon post,
but it will require removeing the potentiometer from the PC board either way.

Update: 10/6/16 - This Prophet 10 works, but has a few issues,
So it will need a trip to a Synth Tech.

I just ran the Diagnostic ROM and Loaded the factory presets. The Diagnostic was completed and showed No Errors. - But there is something strange going on with this thing,.. In General all notes work when you first turn it on, but after it warms up for 20 minutes, some notes will go out of tune and some notes will stop working. If you turn it off for a while and check again, the notes will be working. It seems like it's Voice 6 and Voice 9 on the lower board that are the ones cutting out. And the ones going out of Tune seem to be on the upper keyboard when it's in single mode, The notes are in tune when in Double mode. - I previously mentioned there were notes that were clicking, but later realized that was only because I had the sustain turned down way too far. So that's not an issue
Everything else seems to work fine as far as I can tell.

I have changed the Condition to "For Parts or Not Working" - To protect myself from any issues relating to ebays Buyer Protection policy. Because the "Used" condition description states the item is fully functioning. When my item is technically not fully functioning. It does need minor work. I am Selling this As-Is with no returns.
