Rheyne - Sequenced Jam #8

Published on Dec 4, 2016 Rheyne

"Triggering Moog Mother-32 and Make Noise 0-Coast synthesizers with the Mother-32 sequencers. Effects are from a Strymon BigSky, TC Hall of Fame, and Roland Demora. Audio is straight from the mixer."

CV Controlled Avid Eleven by Ninstrument

Not technically a synth, but rather a guitar modeling effects unit, this Avid Eleven has been modified for CV control by Ninstrument. A demo video should be coming soon.

Gorgeous custom front panel!

"Digging deeper into CV control for Guitarists, and I am not finding too much. So I decided on a custom CV controlled Avid Eleven would make a great Christmas gift this year. CV input with added attenuator for each of the six parameter knobs. If you know much about the Eleven, you know the front six knobs allow you to change the onscreen parameters. Now you can control them with voltages from your modular synth. I also added a CV input for the tap tempo control, so you can control the tempo with a voltage clock. This also means you could setup six pedals and control all six knobs with pedals too, if you wanted!"

All recordings are created live without overdubs or editing. The Drummachine is a Roland TR-8, the echo is a Lexicon MX-200, for some tracks I used a Roland CSQ-600, Track # 8 uses a Doepfer MAQ 16/3"

Easel with Benjolin Percussion

"Just a quick exploration of using the Buchla Music Easel's Sequential Voltage Source's CV output to the Benjolin's A section to create percussive sounds. Better audio here:"

Tiptop Audio: QuantiZer

Tiptop Audio: QuantiZer from Tiptop Audio on Vimeo.


Actress: Denise Luzzi

QuantiZer is a creative melody composing module that uses cutting edge analog electronics and DSP to tune analog VCOs precisely into Western musical scales.

The front panel is packed with functions that makes it very playable and intuitive to use, with a layout that moves forward from the typical quantizer design.

At its center is a slider that can be set to play notes, add Portamento to an incoming sequence, transpose a sequence with in an octave range or transpose a sequence with in 5 octave range.

The 12 note keyboard can be set to play notes manually, add and subtract notes from scales, transpose a sequence as well as setup a variety of settings that define the quantizer behavior and sync with other modules.

Major and Minor keys are both built in to let you switch scales in a very playable way, making it pretty easy to explore musical progression. There are also 24 user scales ready to be filled up with your own custom scales.

A built in sketch pad records and plays back keys entered manually on the keyboard and slider in sync with external clock and reset signal, or Tiptop’s SyncBus which chains the QuantiZer recording function to the Circadian Rhythms time line for precise recording and playback.

Scale CV in can be set to switch between changing scales or transposing pitches using CV from sequencers.

Quantization can be set for free run or Trigger mode for even more interesting ways to interact with external sequencers.

Quantizer sets a new performance standard for Eurorack that offers incredibly stable CV quantization minimizing glitches on input, utilizes high precision temperature compensated 1V/Oct CV generation on output and features stunning conversion latency of less than half a millisecond.

QuantiZer can be set to process a wide variety of CV voltage input ranges, +/-5V CV from LFOs, bi-polar envelopes and such, or 0-10V / 0-5V standard CV from sequencers.

Continuing the tradition of advanced Tiptop digital modules, the QuantiZer Firmware running the digital brain is upgradeable via a USB thumb drive interface at its back allowing for continuous improvement and fine tuning of function and stability over time.

ARP Explorer I 1970's Black & Wood Laminate

via this auction

"Cosmetic condition: MINT. This is like your grandma's 1964 impala that she only pulled out on weekends to cruise.

Working condition: Works amazingly well for the age, but would benefit from servicing. Some of the caps on the draw bars are lightly dirty. Keys are not level; at the worst, they're about 3/16" off from each other (see photos). The keys, from octave to octave, are slightly off from each other."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 3.2 W/Midi

via this auction

"The condition is excellent for the age. There are some minor scuffs around the wooden edges which are typical for a synth of this age.

As far as I can tell everything is working to the best of my knowledge. That is to say all 5 voices are in tune and play accordingly. Both oscillators and all wave shapes are working on all voices. The envelopes generators fire correctly. LFO is good too.
Filters sound juicy and gorgeous. The keyboard is in excellent shape. The middle c note occasionally double triggers but this fixes itself after a few presses (the contactt likely has dust on it and needs a clean). All the buttons and pots are working correctly. The output sound is clean. Memory storage is good.

This unit had Midi installed which makes it a 3.2. The battery was replaced recently.
The internals are in excellent condition with little sign of corrosion or wear."

Roland TR-808 Vintage Analog Drum Machine w/MIDI

via this auction

"Listing is for a Roland TR-808 Drum Machine with CHD MIDI retrofit! I used this solely as a MIDI triggered sound source as DIN sync does not appear to function and when syncing the internal sequencer to MIDI, it syncs fine when in "pattern write" mode but is slightly delayed when in 'manual play' mode. For these reasons, the purchaser should plan on using it as a MIDI triggered unit for getting authentic TR-808 sounds. Samples, VST instruments, clones, etc. cannot touch the sound of the real thing."

Birth Cry of a TTSH

Published on Jul 31, 2016 Little Bitchard

"Got everything electronics related of my TTSH (a Arp 2600 clone) sorted out today: Time for a quick birth cry jam :)

Patch recipe: MC-202 audio routed to envelope follower & then to vcf cutoff, sequence controlling osc 1. Osc 2 for bass, osc 3 for arpeggiated chord (pitch control by internal clock) and white noise for hihat. Vcf resonance for kick drum. Gate from MC-202 triggering vca.

Recorded with the internal mic of the camera (Olympus EPL1), proper amounts of room reverb and noise from outdoors. Some post-process limiting & eq applied."

Arp 1601 sequencer clone as oscillator

Published on Oct 23, 2016 Little Bitchard

"Test-driving my Arp 1601 sequencer clone as a oscillator. Square wave output of Osc1 on my TTSH serving as the clock source. 1601 CV out A hooked up to TTSH mixer input.

Thanks to Lumeet for suggesting this idea how to (mis-)use the 1601! :)

Check the build details of my TTSH here:"

TTSH & 1601 sunday jam

Published on Dec 4, 2016 Little Bitchard

"A little analog synth jam using my TTSH & 1601 sequencer. Osc 1 pitch is controlled from MIDI keyboard, while Oscs 2 & 3 are sequenced with 1601 running in 2x8 mode. No extra VCA for Osc1 so I'm just fading it in by hand here and there :)"

Published on Oct 9, 2016

Sorry for the low volume, just shot this on the fly with my mobile with no post-processing :)"

you can definitely source them yourself! it won't be hard going in with this list into your local electronics store and coming out with those parts, they are extremely common electronic components :-
2x Jack Sockets
1x 100k Potentiometer
1x 100k Resistor
1x 100nf capacitor
1x 1n4148
1x 1uf electrolytic capacitor
1x 9V battery socket
Wire. enough to complete the project

Futuresonus Parva Synth - Playing Around With

Published on Dec 4, 2016 ProckGnosis

"Just some playing around with the Futuresonus Parva Synth. Not in-depth at all. The Parva is an 8-voice, 3-ocillators-per-voice, analog synth, and "each voice contains two two-pole multi-mode filters in series, which can be combined to form various low-pass, high-pass, and bandpass filter topologies" (from the manual).

Great sounding synth, but Futuresonus is still getting a few of the wrinkles ironed out with some final firmware tweaks. Looking forward to doing a more extensive look at it this when the last bits get worked. Cheers!"
