The Glitcher Panel - DIY Synth

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Eccentric Sound Lab

"The top panel, called 'The Glitcher,' of the box to the left is a DIY synthesizer currently being made. There will be two more panels under it. This video shows what this panel does. The button plays the sounds and there is a randomizer glitch switch. Its behavior is unpredictable, making sound creation very fun and exciting with where ever "the ghost in the machine" takes you..."

Note: The YouTube channel name switched from Trance Zero Space to Eccentric Sound Lab, so I created a new label for Eccentric Sound Lab moving forward. Click on Trance Zero Space below to get to previous posts.

Modular Minutes: Doepfer A 111-2 High End VCO Hands On Demo

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Analogue Zone Showroom / Synths and Studio

"Modular Minutes: Doepfer A 111-2 High End VCO Hands On Demo

We are back and so is the Doepfer A-111-2 High End VCO. We took a pretty basic and transparent ride with its output waveforms, modulating the PWM and XFM parameters with two of our other favourite modulation sources, the XAOC Devices - Batumi and the Intellijel designs - Rubicon. The VCO outs were sent and faded in and out slightly on a Make Noise - RxMx vactrol mixer module (its channels were also modulated by Batumi) and FxdF fixed filter bank (off-camera). The tonal sequence was generated by the fantastic and intuitive Octone from Qu-bit Electronix"

New 2016 Vako Orchestron Disc - DREHORGEL

Uploaded on Oct 25, 2016 optigandotcom

"Now taking pre-orders! Place your order at

A new release in our line of Vako Orchestron discs, DREHORGEL. It's unlikely that there will be sufficient demand to do a second run of 25 of these discs, so your best bet is to buy as many of these as you need while you can!

DREHORGEL is a newly recorded sound for the Orchestron. It's a small, hand-cranked street organ that plays punched music rolls, similar to a calliope. The drehorgel featured here is owned by Pat Quilter of Quilter Labs. For our disc, we chose the unique "trill" sound of the drehorgel, which produces repeated notes. Great for playing creepy circus type music!

PLEASE NOTE: This disc WILL NOT play properly in an Optigan! They WILL play, but the sounds will NOT be mapped correctly to the keyboard- they will be mapped mostly haphazardly across the chord buttons. Please don't order this disc expecting to easily use it in an Optigan. In the future we will be porting the Orchestron sounds to the Optigan- please be patient! :)

Stay tuned for more Orchestron discs, both new and remastered titles!"

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Monotrail

Nathan Hahn, Weekly Loop : Zitronenbaum

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Nathan Hahn

"This weeks loop was a bit of a challenge filming wise. I managed to get it done just in time despite the fact that it fought me at every turn. Hence the title. I looped the synthesizers with the Echoplex, and the guitar with the Ditto x4. the guitar is running thru the Behringer FC600 Foot Controller, UC200 Ultra Chorus, and SF300 Super Fuzz TC Electronic Triple Delay, and a custom made tremolo pedal. The drums are the Roland TR-8, and Korg Electribe Sampler. Synthesizers used are the Korg Triton Taktile, Electribe Sampler, Waldorf Streichfett with Arturia Keystep, and Roland D-10."

Circuit Bent DD-10

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"A circuit bent modified Yamaha DD-10 Drum Machine, built by Shane Williams of X1L3. Although a DD-10 won't yield to rom glitching, a number of features have been added to it to bring it up to spec with some of the more unruly machines listed in the shop. It takes on it's own unique character and is now unlike any of the others. Two oscillators which can be set up as drones or set to follow the amplitude envelope of the drum machine output, an external input with bufferd/none buffered input selection which allows you to feed line level equipment and passives such as guitars, mics and contact mics into the effects chain. The effects chain consists of a resonant filter with high pass and low pass bands, a digital delay which is open to abuse and is the heart of the machines ability to create ambient, harsh and noise wall sound scapes as well as data crash type glitching and strange effect. It has a dual mode distortion with diode clipping and direct modes. All of these can be used to manipulate the internal sounds as well as anything fed into the external input. The external input can be used while the machine is active and the machine, oscillators and external source can be mixed up as desired in the mixer section. The pitch control features a coarse and fine dial. When the pitch is dropped via the coarse control it dives into dirt and sludge which plays well with the filter and distortion.

Protosynth first prototype + Protosynth V1 + FL Studio live impro

Published on Oct 26, 2016 Konstantin T

"Another live improvisation. This time made on 2 handmade synthesizers, one the original Tokarev Protosynth prototype (on the left) and the Protosynth V1 final implementation (on the right). FL Studio is sending a single note with software arpegiator enabled, as well as master MIDI clock. The synth on the left responds to note on/off messages with intermittent use of the hardware arpegiator (activated by top left switch). The synthesizer on the right is running its standalone sequencer synchronized to the MIDI clock from computer. Pads are done with the GMS synth from FL Studio."

Buchla Music Easel - Sound Sketch #18 (RC-505 Tribal)

"Buchla Music Easel Synthesizer Demo
Effector, Recorder: BOSS RC-505 Loop Station
Recording Software: Audacity"


Published on Oct 26, 2016 voltlife

"A dark drone-like improv full of analogue instabilities and distortion.

A Doepfer A196 is trying to track the formant output of a Mannequins Mangrove (which is sequenced by Turing Machine through an A156). But on top of the typically wonky tracking of the PLL, the waveshape of the Mangrove is being slowly modulated, causing further judders, slides and glitches.

The PLL's VCO out is mixed with its phase comparator output and the steady square output of the Mangrove, forming a kind of drunken trio out of a single generative melody. The mix then goes into a Doepfer A108 filter, with the 24dB/o output going into a Vox Delay Lab for spacey/shimmery reverb and long delay. Also, the A108's BP output is patched into its own feedback loop, and when I turn up the feedback a wailing, sync-like resonance bursts forth."
