Delayed Generation Soundscape. DSI Prophet 12 Looping EGs.

Published on Nov 3, 2016 Robert Shipe

"DSI Prophet 12 generative/experimental electronic soundscape. I will hold (sustain pedal) one or two notes and tweak the hell out of the P12. You can take one sound so many places. It is fun to see what happens and what kind of happy accidents or new discoveries you'll come across. I am using all 4 delays with 3 Looping Envelopes (VCA/VCF/Drive) to create this alien-sounding piece. Both the P12's HP & LP filters were also used quite a bit. You can really feed the 4 tap delays for some very unique sounds.

Tracked in Ableton Live 9 with Waves API 550B EQ, Waves Aphex Aural Exciter and SKNote's Empirical Labs EL7 in the channel strip. Also used Reaktor 6 FX and Native Instrument's RC 48 Royal Studio Hall Reverb, Alesis and Lexicon rack units. Mackie mixer into a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40."

DSI OB-6/Korg MS-20 Mini/Roland TR-8/Strymon Big Sky & Timeline - Big Time, Sky Line

1. DSI OB-6/Korg MS-20 Mini/Roland TR-8/Strymon Big Sky & Timeline - Big Time, Sky Line

A quick little Sunday jam featuring my new favourite synthesizer the DSI/Tom Oberheim OB-6! The OB-6 is holding a pad that's LFO clock synced to modulate various parameters over time. That shares a stereo image with a Strymon Big Sky. The MS-20 is going into the Timeline for rhythmic delays. The TR-8 is on one track, dry, shitty, and over compressed.

2. Korg MS-20 Mini/Dave Smith OB-6/Roland TR-8/Strymon Big Sky - Mason Jar

"It's been a LONGGG time since I posted anything and I've been wanting to do something with drums for awhile now! I've recently been selling off tons of gear to fund a small but high end minimal set up and although I'm not quite there yet, I did manage to throw this together in one quick take. Here's what's happening:

Arturia Beat Step Pro is sending a sequence to the MS-20 mini via midi. The TR-8 is synced to the clock and somewhat pre programmed. The MS-20 is also being sent to a Strymon Big Sky (though I did add some UAD Lexicon 224 to it and the drums afterwords). The OB-6 has a two note, one chord sequence held down consistently that has a tempo synced LFO modulating the filter frequency and type. Everything was done live in one take and no over dubs, though I did add some quick and sloppy automation while mixing.

Everything was tracked through UAD's Studer tape plug-in and the MS-20 had a little compression from an LA-3A. I threw an 1176 on the stereo track of the TR-8, though its not compressing much. On the master bus there's UAD master tape and another 1176 doing some work! I don't mind noise. I don't mind hiss. And I love throwing tape plug ins on everything. Even if it isn't doing much, it comforts me.

I've recently gotten really into Pye Corner Audio's Head Technician side project which used nothing but a 303, 202, and 606. I felt super inspired by that minimalism and hope to get a similar set up going soon! Regardless, that's why my MS-20 probably ended up wishing it was a 303 in this video. Sorry. I'll take a TB-03 for christmas though Santa!"


Korg MS-20 Mini/SQ1 - Dislocate

Published on Sep 15, 2016 Jae Ryan

"I almost sold my MS-20 last week but decided against it and instead picked up an SQ-1. I haven't quite figured out how to reach its full potential yet but I also haven't posted any videos in a long time so I threw this together real quick to change that. It's not a great sequence and it's not well recorded but it does make the MS-20 mini sound fine, which really takes no talent!"

Korg Minilogue - "Stranger Things" & More

Published on Jul 20, 2016 Jae Ryan

1. Korg Minilogue - "Stranger Things"

"I was a little slow obtaining a Minilogue since I live in Canada. I happened to get mine last weekend while binge watching Stranger Things on Netflix. Although this is not what the synth is known for (based on what I've seen), I figured I would take a shot at making something that wouldn't be out of place on a scene in the show. This whole sequence is just one track of the Minilogues audio out. No overdubs. No second synth. No layers, just 1 pure audio track of Minilogue madness. As usual I recorded this to the UAD Studer tape plug in and added some delay and Lexicon 224 reverb for width and depth.

I also own the Korg Arp Odyssey and MS-20 Mini and I must say that at some points this synth can sound very similar to those, even in how difficult it can be to find the sweet spot. When you open this thing up though, it has a sound that's all its own. Personally i'm not a huge fan of poly synths but ANY analog at this price is worth owning. The Minilogue has a very unique character, love it or hate it, you'll be hard pressed to find the sound anywhere else."

2. Moog Sub 37/Roland Juno 106 (Live Synth Jam 2)

A little sunday synth jam featuring the Moog Sub 37 on "lead" and the Roland Juno 106 on some pad type textures.
I really fell in love with the Sub 37 when I realized that 1. Turning the oscillators past 5 will bring them into the "Sub Distortion" zone but if you keep them below 5 it's much much easier to get smooth, classic Moog sounds. I am a bigger fan of the latter. And 2. Being able to route both mod busses to the mod wheel opens up a ton of expressive playing options. Although the patch I designed in this video doesn't really show it off, I just had to mention it. Having filter cut off and vibrato working together is beautiful!

I recorded this using an Apollo Twin and a few UAD plug ins, most notably the Studer Tape Machine, Lexicon 224 and LA-2A!

Recorded live on 27/06/2016!

3. Moog Sub 37/Roland Juno 106 (Live Synth Jam 3)

Incredibly Rare Jen Synx 508 Polyphonic Analogue Synth Prototype

Published on Apr 10, 2016 duoblank

Update: found the videos above and according to Mal in the comments, these may not be so rare after all. I guess it depends on how many are left. The videos above are the only ones I found on YouTube and out of well over 144,000 posts to date on the site, this is only the 3rd post to reference the Synx 508, so if they are out there, they aren't getting much exposure.

Jen Synx 508 - Trying out presets
Jen Synx 508 - Using the Sequencer
Jen Synx 508 - Noodling around with this synth from 1983 - "Managed to get hold of a unit # 1129 (possibly #29) which was one of a handful imported in Malta by Nani of Valletta. The Jen Synx 508 was a 5 voice polyphonic synthesizer from Italy which could be expanded to 8 voice. Soon after being released the company went bust... judging from its architecture this unit was still in prototype phase!! Will be also uploading a demo of its sequencer. No MIDI is available however the onboard sequencer can be clocked to an external source."

And via Mal in the comments: "Not that rare and also it did make it to production. I once owned 2 of these, serial number #40 and #151. Number 40 was clearly a work in progress as each board had many additional wires attached on both sides of the PCB but by #151, the voice cards had been retraced and all external wires were gone. Thin, weedy sounding synth... more like a string machine with extras then a full synth. Noises chorus, nowhere near the quality of the Polysix. Heavy, bulky casing... end cheeks are compressed cardboard coated in thick paint and chip real easily. Worth more for the myriad of Curtis chips, each voice card comes with a CEM 3310 ADSR Envelope, a CEM3320 24db/Oct, 4 pole, Multipass filter and a CEM 3360 Dual VCA."

Some of the legend has worn off as like I say it is a prototype & was not commercially finished the synth is listed as not working but that is just one key !

Roland JD-800 Synthesizer SN ZC43655

via this auction

"Edit VOICE main core H8532 (at IC36) manages up to 24 voice or digital oscillators polyphony.

A single patch is composed by a 4 PCM layer by the JD "WG" wave generator - each layer with individual parameters such as:

- level mix
- pitch coarse and fine
- pitch random amount
- key follow modes.

Roland calls Linear Arithmetic synthesis, a technique Roland had been using to great effect in the Roland D-50. The JD-800 has 108 waveforms built-in, but these can be expanded via PCM-cards. There are waveforms in a variety of categories, like; analog synth, acoustic instruments, like guitars, woodwind, brass and voices. Most of these waveforms are very short and are designed to give character to the attack portion of a sound, while some longer ones are designed for creating pads, or the sustained part of a patch. The JD-800 was the first instrument from Roland to have its core sound set of waveforms developed entirely in the United States, under a short-lived branch of Roland's R&D-LA office in Culver City, California. The core sampled waveforms and Factory presets of the JD-800 were created by Eric Persing.[2]

A patch, or single sound, in the JD-800 consists of up to 4 tones. As every tone consists of an almost completely independent synthesizer voice a patch could be considered a layer of up to 4 different synthesizers. In single mode the JD-800 plays one patch at a time, but in multi mode it is possible to play 5 different patches, over MIDI, plus an extra "special" patch. The special patch has different waveforms assigned to the 61 different key on the keyboard, so is used for drums and percussion sounds. The JD-800 has one effects section. In single mode 7 effects can be used simultaneously, in series, so all tones in a patch go through the same effects. In multi mode 3 effects can be used at the same time, all patches sharing the same effects, though a patch can be routed to bypass the effects."

The Cat SRM by Octave

via this auction

"This vintage beautiful has been fully restored to it's exact original specs by the skillful hands of the guys over at This Old Synth in San Jose, California. We've already killed hours here sitting and getting some amazing sounds out of it and as sad as it makes us, we have a job to do and this synth needs to go out into the world and be recorded in all it's analog splendor.

The 37 full-sized keys are framed by wooden side panels, which exhibit a bit of wear and tear, but they have great character as you'll see from the images we've included. The chassis is a tabletop style design, which sits about 20"s deep and 6"s high, so only slightly larger than your typical tabletop keyboard synth. It was released in 1976 and this duophonic synth has two voltage controlled oscillators, 24 db lowpass filter, sample and hold and 7 waveforms which can be mixed simultaneously and both ADSR and AR envelopes in the "transient generator" section. Many have compared it to the ARP Odyssey and while there are certainly many many similarities, The Cat has it's own distinct character and we're very excited to be able to offer an original SRM mod to the public!"

Ambient generative music on a modular synth: 'Dizzy Dreams' by POB

Published on Nov 2, 2016 Patrick OBrien

"This ambient modular synthesizer patch is an attempt at creating generative music - music that is ever-different & changing, as created by a system. The patch could go on and on with very little or no repetition or interaction. As you see in this video, I powered up the case and walked away, letting it run by itself.

Generative Music revolves around the idea that music, or sounds may be "generated" by a musician selecting parameters within an ecology, such that the ecology will perpetually produce different variations based on the parameters and algorithms used.

I chose to record a long video for those who want background music, music to fall asleep to, or to find the best music to listen to while studying, or for those wanting to hear dreamy yet spooky cinematic analog sound progressions.

My original thought on this piece: imagining someone who's in a deep dream state but experiences subtle interruptions, as if they are getting knocked in and out of consciousness because they are dizzy or hungover.

Only using 2 oscillators (Make Noise's STO and Pittsburgh Modular's Oscillator) and a lot of effects, this one even surprised me! Some of the deep tones sound like brass instruments blaring, while others formed melodies that sound like French Horns.

While some reverb is coming from the Mutable Instruments Clouds, the entire mix is sent through an Eventide H9 Harmonizer Effects Processor.

Elektron Introduces New Analog Drive - Multi-circuit Analog Distortion Unit

Published on Nov 3, 2016 Elektron

"Ultimate distortion, times eight."

via Elektron

"Analog Drive gives you eight analog distortion types in one box. It is the ideal pedal for guitarists who want to wreak havoc to signals and tones in the most diverse and characterful way possible.

Total analog distortion box
The sheer sonic range of the Analog Drive, courtesy of the eight different analog distortion circuits, is in itself a marvel. One stompbox harboring so many tone shaping opportunities: unheard of until now. Analog Drive is a bottomless well of new sounds.

The EQ touch
Enhance your amp with the 3 band analog EQ. The mid band is sweepable, which is very handy for dialing in the perfect EQ setting. The mid EQ can also be controlled with an expression pedal, making it easy to create analog wah-like sounds.

For the live rig
The possibility to store user presets will make the live gig flow smoothly. And if you rely on MIDI during your performances, the Analog Drive delivers. All settings are fully controllable via MIDI and it can even send MIDI program change messages."

Using the new Korg IOS synth app ODDYSSEi with Korg Gadget, on an iPad Mini 3, how does it hold up?

Published on Nov 2, 2016 Expanding Sound


"We own a hardware Korg Odyssey, and were very interested to hear what the new iOS app, ODYSSEi sounded like. The hardware has an iconic, unique sound that rivals many of the best synths, but when we heard this new iOS app worked with Korg's Midi iOS DAW Gadget, it became a must buy. Gadget quickly became a favorite mobile music making app for us here at Expanding Sound, with it's easy interface and great tones. The exporting of your performance to Ableton Live sets is a pretty key feature for making high quality jams on the go. We assumed that with this new apps capabilities and great tone, it would be fairly draining on your iPads processing power. So how did it hold up on an iPad mini 3? Check out our video and see! I whipped up a quick little sequence, for the purposes of testing the sounds and limitations that went along with the app.
check out our site for more experiments, performances and tests!"
