"Creating sounds with time-varying timbre, on your mobile device. A wave sequence synthesizer for iOS.

The WAVESTATION synthesizer went on sale in 1990. This instrument featured an advanced vector synthesis system which created new sounds by combining and connecting multiple waveforms; it provided a mix/morphing function that let you use a joystick to change the balance of four oscillators, and a distinctive wave sequence function that allowed you to place waveforms in a desired sequence to create sequence patterns. To this day, it continues to be considered a legendary and still-unique instrument.

Now in 2016, the WAVESTATION has been reborn as "KORG iWAVESTATION," an app for iPad/iPhone. In addition to completely reproducing the programs, it also features a renewed design that lets everyone experience the stupendous sound-shaping potential of the WAVESTATION. It features touch-based operation that's distinctive of iOS, in conjunction with a new graphic interface that allows you to visualize and edit the time-varying timbral changes that are distinctive of the WAVESTATION. The sound and functionality are taken directly from the WAVESTATION itself, but the speedy and intuitive sound-shaping which were previously impossible are now made possible by the iWAVESTATION. Now you can obtain the diverse sounds of wave sequencing, inimitable by any other synthesizer, on your iPad/iPhone."

AI Synthesis Releases AI003 Looping Envelope Generator

The following is the official press release in via AI Synthesis. You can find two videos previously posted here and here.

"Portland, OR, USA November 29, 2016 – AI Synthesis has released its third module, the AI003 Looping Envelope Generator. Followed the tradition of its first two eurorack modules, the AI001 Multiple and AI002 Mixer the module has a full video how-to build guide, and is available as a fully built module, full kit, as a PCB and Panel set, and as PCB only. Unlike some DIY companies that focus solely on providing kits, AI Synthesis has an educational mission and our kits and documentation are aimed at those who have never held a soldering iron. PCBS are professionally manufactured, and all panels are aluminum and designed by Grayscale.

'In the year 2000, I was in college and obsessed with modular synths, but could barely afford to eat. I knew it was possible to build your own synth, but there wasn’t anyone, or anywhere to turn to for advice. In the past decade, much more information has been published online, and in 2013 I started down my path to DIY modular. Even with all of the information online, there still lacked a single, simple, comprehensive guide for those looking to build their own synthesizer. I want AI Synthesis to be that guide. Prior to building my own synth, I was a dreamer, after building my modular, I felt I had awoken. I want to help others do the same.'
-Abraham Ingle
Founder, AI Synthesis

In addition to providing step by step build instructions, schematics, and circuit explanations, each Build Guide includes a full-build video tutorial, so builders can see every step. The site also includes a guide for getting started in modular synthesis, and a series of DIY Guides, with information regarding how Resistors actually work, and how to integrate a $26 scope into your Eurorack system.

Upcoming kits include filters, oscillators, and euclidian sequencers, all with the same painstaking quality, support, and resources."

Hawkeye - SID Love (C64 8580 Stereo, Mutable Instruments Anushri)

Published on Nov 30, 2016 Maelstroem3

as recently requested by my YouTube friend KATOD_music (also a C64 SID nut :-)), here is a track that focuses again on the sound of the Commodore C64 SIDs. The synth in the upper left (red backlit knobs) houses eight 8580 SIDs in a DIY MB6582 synthesizer in four separate engines/channels, only a single stereo channel with two SIDs is used (lead stereo sweep starting at around 00:30).

Also featuring a Mutable Instruments Anushri (percussive arpeggio, right at the beginning), the Moog Little Phatty (dirty bassline, made with the LP through a DIY Polivoks filter and a Strymon Timeline delay) and an Elektron Machinedrum for percussion.

The session was recorded live, directly from the bare metal (Mackie 1604 mixer into Tascam WAV recorder) and was only slightly compressed in post-production and aligned to the video, no DAW necessary because of the fantastic MIDIbox MBSEQ V4 sequencer :-).

Hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for watching and listening!

KORG Releases iWavestation

First mentioned here, KORG iWavestation has arrived. As an owner of an original Korg Wavestation EX, I am looking forward to exploring this one with the enhanced UI.


"A revolutionary new world of sound.
The Wave Sequence Synthesizer for iPad - KORG iWAVESTATION

The WAVESTATION synthesizer appeared in 1990 with its new "advanced vector synthesis system" which combined and shifted between multiple complex waveforms. The user could operate a joystick to "mix" or "morph" between four oscillators selected from the large onboard collection of waveforms.

iWAVESTATION is evolved the operability of the KORG Legacy Collection. The original editing structure has been preserved, while giving you a redesigned graphical user interface that takes advantage of the intuitive operation possible with iPad.

[ Features ]

- An evolved WAVESTATION sound

- New graphical WAVE SEQUENCE operation

- Total 1,500 sound, including the option PCM/Program cards*

- Interoperable with the Original WAVESTATION"

Miss America Oberheim OB-Xa Synthesizer - 8 Voice - Original Owner - 120 Programs

via this auction

"Original Factory Programs have been reinstalled, so you are getting the original Oberheim patches that came with the instrument... OBXa was recently overhauled in November 2016 by one of the top classic synth restoration guys in the US located in Tampa, FL. Paper work on the overhaul will ship with the instrument. It didn't need much because it's been maintained in my studio constantly.

Originally, I bought my OBX-a in September 1982 to play the Miss America Pageant '82 TV Show in Atlantic City.
Immediately after that I moved the synth to the Bally Casino in AC to play the "Legends in Concert" show.
I was on that show for a several months. Since the fall of 1983 my OBXa has lived happily in my studio except for normal maintenance and tune up.

I am not a smoker.
I don't let anyone smoke in my studio.
This machine has been in a climate controlled smoke free environment all it's life."

"The microKORG S continues to build on the success of the original.

Since then, the microKORG has found its way into the hands of musicians far and wide, and now, receives an update to ensure it will remain one of the world’s most beloved synthesizers for years to come.

The new microKORG S features a built-in 2+1 speaker system with power that far exceeds its size. Its body sports an elegant white motif, and features new presets that represent the sounds of a new generation. Beneath the microKORG S’s sophisticated exterior hides a sound engine both brutal in strength and universal in application."

nonlinearcircuits bong0 #2

Published on Nov 30, 2016 cirtcele

"A short demo of the bong0. The one on the left has its raw signal patched to the mixer, the one on the right is patched to a Timbre! and then to the mixer. Both Bong0s are fed gates and CVs from a 4SEQ.

Bong0s can be set to self-oscillate and then be used as a VCO. Their sounds are quite rubbery and unusual.

Feeding triggers or gates to both inputs allows the creation of poly-rhythmical structures, where it sounds like 2-3 drum modules running at once.

This is a very easy DIY project, as it has only a few components. It is, of course, all analogue :)
