The 90s - an melodic IDM patch from the past for eurorack modular synthesiser

Published on Jan 4, 2017 Luke Killen

"This is my first patch video for 2017. I wanted to make something which was about time. In the 90s for me, this kind of sound was exciting and fresh. It was a time where established electronic music was changing and looking both to the future and the past. I still love it where the melodic meets the textural and mildly abstract."

Yamaha CS-60: "Shimmer" by Raymond Castile

Published on Jan 4, 2017 raycastile

"I was having some tea Wednesday morning and decided to record something. I had just read an online tutorial about jazz chord progressions, and I wanted to try out my new Valhalla plugin. So I just hit record on the computer and started playing. This is what came out! An improvisation on the Yamaha Reface CP using the CP-80 piano sound, with the Yamaha CS-60 providing a "flute" solo dancing around on top. Virtually no thought or planning went into this. I just started recording and moving my fingers. If I had put any thought into it, it probably would have ruined it.

Maybe someone here can help me with a technical issue. You hear that buzzing hum? It's in all my recordings. It's coming from the CS-60. It's a very noisy old machine. Is there a plugin or a pedal that can get rid of that hum without diminishing the character of the sound? The CS-60 has a very delicate, precise sound, and I don't want to lose that. But I do want to lose that hum. Logic Pro X has a de-noise effect, but it only works for hissing, not for this kind of noise. If you have any suggestions, post it in the comments. Thank you!"

Behringer DeepMind 12 comparison with Roland Juno 60

Published on Jan 4, 2017 Vile Electrodes


I said a few months ago on various forums that I would do this video, so here it is!

Rather than looking at every single feature of the DM12, it compares the basic building blocks of the sound - DCOs, VCF, VCA, Envelopes - of each synth. Personally I think they are pretty similar, but the DM12 has a few interesting advantages, and that’s before you even get to more advanced modern features such as the modulation matrix or the effects section.

The Juno is a classic synth, but the DM12 easily stands up to the Juno in my view. And whilst I'm not ready to get rid of my Junos (I do use them an awful lot!) I'm certainly going to be using the DM12 in place of the Juno for live duties, and for doing lots of things the Junos can't.

This video has been made partially as a response to some of the negative comments that people (most of whom have never played the synth) have been making about the DM12.

My experience of using the DM12, its sound and build quality, and my dealings with Behringer and Midas, have been nothing but positive."

Darth Drumf Inauguration Performance Tryout

Published on Jan 4, 2017 Dudadius

Too funny. Read:

"In light of published reports that the incoming administration is having difficulties nailing down appropriate marquee performers, I would like to offer up my services.

Patch notes.

Moog Mother-32 is driving the show. Circadian Rhythms is playing some Tip Top drums. One mix goes into the Intellijel Shapeshifter (thanks @mylarmelodies for the inspiration!) and then blended with the dry mix; all sent together through Cwejman MMF2.

Moog sequence goes to a Synthesis Tech Quad Temporal Shifter which shifts the sequence before sending it on to Macbeth Micromac, which plays more of the bass version of the sequence.

Lastly, the Mother line is fed into the Intellijel Rainmaker for some delay and varying comb-filter.

I think I would be a nice addition to the celebration."

Oberheim OB-8 Analog Synthesizer with MIDI & Aftertouch Controller

via this auction

"This is truly one of a kind synth! It has an array of added features that take it over the top in comparison to other vintage models on the market.

To start, this synth is in superb shape for its age. It shows hardly any signs of surface wear! The blue front panel looks fantastic, and the wooden sides and the back panel show little to no signs of wear. Cosmetically I would give it a 9/10.

Functionally, this synth is also in fantastic shape. It is in complete working order. The pots turn fluidly, and all of the surface buttons are in working condition.

Now, here is the good stuff! This synth has gone through a few extensive mods that really bring it to another level. The first mod done to this synth was increasing the depth of the bass tone in the low end, to replicate a tone more similar to an OB-XA. Normally, an OB-8 does not have a very present low end, so some people prefer the OB-XA. However, with this mod, you get the great low end, with the added features and reliability of the OB-8!

The second mod done to this synth is the deal maker- this synth includes a full aftertouch system with fatar semi-weighted keys! The normal keys of the OB-8 are not touch sensitive and need constant maintenance due to the poor key contacts. But this synth is extremely reliable! You can play fast passages and get full responsiveness from the key bed.

The aftertouch system is called the Pyxis System, installed by New England Analog Company. This is a very detailed system that routs the aftertouch to a small wooden module (as seen in the photos). You can route the aftertouch to a wide variety of parameters, including LFO, Cutoff, Bend, Tremelo, and more, and you can route these effects simultaneously. The aftertouch can be controlled by pressing the key bed with more force, but it can also be controlled by a second wooden touchpad. This touch pad can be put on the floor and operated by foot, leaving you with two hands free while still controlling the aftertouch! This type of system is extremely hard to find anywhere on the market- I believe that New England Analog no longer makes the Pyxis System. I can say from experience playing with this synth that it truly takes the playing experience to another level."

Vintage Korg KR-55 SN 252983 with Original Box

via this auction

"Imagine a weekly jam session, you and 40 or 50 friends, open bar, taped all night on a tube-driven reel-to-reel, a great time for all, except you rarely get a drummer to these events. A good friend of mine was in this exact situation. Solution? Especially for an hours-long jam to a single tune? A solid, well-made, good-sounding drum machine, of course! Enter the Korg KR55, an early drum synth with exactly what my friend was looking for - 10 drum voices, 48 pre-set rhythms, 16 intro/fills, easy to hook up to a guitar amp, easy to operate. This is an analog design from the early 80's, and was a staple for years in studios during the period. Comes with original box and manual. When it was last tested about 2 years ago, everything worked perfectly, so the pots and switches may need to be cleaned. Best wishes!"
