Rain - Live Jam with Yamaha Montage and DSI/Oberheim OB6, Akai Tom Cat

Published on Oct 23, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"It's raining! That may not be a big deal to you, but here in Southern California, it's a miracle. Anyway, the rain put me in a moody good mood so I just wanted to play something exuberant. Yamaha Montage does most of the work here. Using the FC7 pedal to control the SuperKnob and get some nice dynamics. It accompanied with a little lead and a sequence from the OB6. the Tom Cat makes a brief appearance as well."

Moog Sub 37- Rhythmic and Percussive Looping

Published on Oct 23, 2016 iVardensphere

"The Moog Sub 37 is a wonderful synthesizer that is capable of doing many of the classic Moog sounds but is also capable of going into very different sonic territory. This video explores the use of tempo sync'ed looping envelopes and LFO's to create rich, modulation based, rhythmic material without the use of the sequencer or incoming midi data. You can hear the Sub 37 in many of the tracks on my most recent release- iVardensphere: Fable

The video is made in conjunction with Long and McQuade Music Instruments. If you're in Canada and want to check out a Sub 37, be sure to head down to a L&M near you."

"For a free download of this track in high quality, and loads more music, head to my Soundcloud:

I've been listening to loads of Murcof, Loscil and Muslimgauze lately and I hope you can see my inspiration. Please please please if you know any dark ambient artists write them in the comments below. I'm really enjoying this kind of music recently. Hopefully I will be writing a few more like this in the future!

Please leave any feedback in the comments, I'm interested to know what people think of this style.
Happy Listening :)"

Dogs V4 by zvonx

"I'm helping a guy on reddit with his cover of Pink Floyd's Dogs.

Here's the solo @ 10 min in the original I recorded for him. My first recording on my model d reissue I picked up used last week (holy crap is this thing fantastic!)

I'm no rick wright and still learning how to perform on the minimoog but this sure was fun!

On the original it sounds like he is switching between LFO pitch modulation and FM Modulation. I couldn't really figure out how to do that without a third hand. On the 10th take I was finally successful working it in quickly in one part.

This is a much bigger solo than the original but it was hard not to leave her wide open and let her shine.

Noisy Spaces III

"Wide timbral space noise improvisation on a DSI Evolver with way too much Eventide Space shimmer reverb recorded live in one take through a Tapco Mix100 distortion unit into the audio input of a towable.

This is essentially a demo of the Eventide Space reverb using the shimmer algorithm with mix=100 and lots of feedback. Eventide Space is the primary sound source in this track though signs of the original sound source are a lot more audible than with the blackhole inverse gravity settings."

KORG DELTA DL-50 SN 287092

via this auction

"Working 100% Sounding VERY 1970s early 80s! Cosmetic condition is quite good for a synthesizer this old. I like to Trigger the synth section with a drum machine and play the strings over that arrangement. You can also get a wide variety of modulation and superb wind and space sweeps. Add a little FX like delay and reverb and it really comes to life!"

Serge Modular Systems - Patch 021

Published on Oct 23, 2016 batchas

"Serge Paperface Modular System from 1978 with the little help from more recent Serge modules from STS and Random*Source modules.

We see the Bugbrand modular is also synched to the Serge. Only one of its oscillators is involved here and it's the sound we hear better at the very end of the video (the high pitched sequenced note).

This video is actually based on the patch I did yesterday on the Paperface system: "Serge Paperface '78 - Patch 004".
I only extended it with a few STS and R*S modules."

Dial-up sound 700% slower (Creepy)

Uploaded on Feb 1, 2011 Darkfalky

This one in via @boe_dye. A bit buchla-esque. See if you can identify the classic dial-up modem transitions.

"You know how when you slow a Justin Bieber song down by 800%, you get a neat ambient track? Well if you do this kind of thing with the most horrible sound in the world OH MY GOD I CAN NEVER SLEEP AGAIN

This was made with a program named PaulStretch, which can make this sort of thing from any sound files. I edited the final product a bit to remove long silences and some white noise length, and to try to even the volume out a bit. I didn't add any echo or whatnot, that's just what happens when you want to slow down a sound file without affecting the pitch or sounding like shit, so blame the program, not me. It can be downloaded here:

You can now download it on Mediafire:"

"An hour after the new Rhythm module from Qu-Bit Electronix arrived in the post, I patched it up and explored an alternative idea, triggering musical samples from Wave instead of percussion to set what it might offer. This dark pulsing beauty appeared immediately, and again I love the element of surprise that appears through such connections. As always, it's merely a sketch of an idea, a playful moment in the studio."

"More from my Pure Data sequencer without a name. Lots of features added now, not to mention eight tracks and independent trig patterns. It's a bit of a monster and I get to very interesting places very quickly using it, but I really want to make it more playable.

Here five sequence tracks are driving four sounds on the 002 in a multi-timbral setup. All FX are from the 002, as well. The mix is taken straight from the outputs."

Yamaha Electone C 605 P with Eurorack modules DEMO by Nord

Published on Oct 23, 2016 Nord

"This is a Berlin school of electronic music style demo of the Yamaha Electone C 605 P portable analog home organ routed through Eurorack modules. No multitrack recording was used. No other instrument was recorded, only the Yamaha Electone C 605 P. It's all live recorded in Nord's studio. The sound of the organ was routed through a Mutable Instruments Ripples module followed by a Clouds module upgraded with the Parasite software. The Ripples and Clouds modules were modulated by Doepfer A-143-3 Quad LFO, Doepfer A- 183 - 1 Dual Attenuator, Doepfer A - 118 Noise/Random voltage modules.

Yamaha Electone C 605 P with Eurorack, Keio Minipops and Vermona Synth Demo by Nord Part 2

Published on Nov 8, 2016

"I made an other DEMO for my Yamaha Electone C 605 P home organ. I routed it through an Eurorack modular synthesizer. This time I used a sequencer (Arturia Keystep) to trigger the oscillators (MI Braids and AS RS95E VCS3 clone) and the gate of the Intellijel Dual ADSR. The sound of the oscillators and the home organ are filtered by a MI Ripples, that is modulated by a Doepfer Quad LFO and a S&H module. The sound of the Electone organ and the OSC's are the routed into a MI Clouds module. For drums I used a Vintage Keio Minipops and at the end of the demo the Electone's own drums. I also used a vintage Vermona Synthesizer routed through a Strymon TimeLine effect pedal.
