Dual Division 6 Business Card Sequencer & Barton BMC45 Router Eurorack Modules by Ninstrument

Two new custom modules via Ninstrument:

"Business Card sized Sequencer from Div 6. Here I took two of them and stacked them into a eurorack module. Realize when you buy the kit it is just ONE sequencer. I bought two for this custom build. This kit was very easy to build and dare I say the most ‘inexpensive sequencer you will find!’ Realize the custom euro panel I made for this was a very difficult task. There are 122 holes in this panel and was very challenging to make."

How cool is that? You might remember the DIY Division 6 business card sequencer from this post.

"BMC45 router from Barton. This is a fun straight forward build. Most of Barton’s eurorack DIY kits are very affordable and very well thought through and as a plus are very affordable. I added four custom mute buttons to this one as I thought that made a nice addition to live performance. The link to that kit is here."

Behringer Desktop Deepmind 12 Desktop Leaked for $999.99?

This one was spotted and sent in via Joel Braverman. I thought the price was high, so I did a quick search to see what the keyboard version was going for. To my surprise, the desktop version popped up in the sponsored search results on the right, so this ad is actually out there. The keyboard version though, goes for the same, $999.99. Did they use the wrong image? Your guess is as good as mind.

The Desktop version was first mentioned back in November 11.


Published on Jan 6, 2017 once upon a synth

"In this episode we use an approximation of the Karplus-Strong algorithm to design plucked string sounds on the DSI Pro 2 synthesizer using physical modeling synthesis. The Karplus-Strong algorithm involves a short burst of noise that is fed into a delay line. The samples are averaged as they feed back through the line and this results in a crude simulation of a plucked string which sounds surprisingly good. Unfortunately the pitch doesn't track correctly here because this needs to be calibrated in code and what I'm doing in this video is just a simulation of this algorithm using the delay and some noise."

0-Coast first patch

Published on Jan 5, 2017 justin3am

"I told myself that I would stick to patching the 0-Coast to itself at first, but I couldn't help myself.

Audio Damage's Seq1 controls the Pitch, Overtone, Multiply and the Decay time of the Contour, triggers the Contour Generator and clocks the tempo input. Slope running at audio rate is patched to the linear FM input. The Random out controls the Slope Time and transposes Seq1.

The output of 0-Coast is connected to an Echophon. The LP-1 X-Y controller triggers Freeze and controls Echo Time and Pitch Depth on the Echophon."

Ableton Push 2 live beat

Published on Jan 6, 2017 Ally Mobbs

"First beat video of the new year.
Planning to do one a week from now on. All the sounds except drums were from the yamaha psr36 running through some vintage effects pedals I was recently given. Analog delay into stereo chorus to space echo sampled to sp404sx then chopped on push 2. The psr36 is an old fm synth which I circuit bent for drum sounds. I often run it through the filter of the ms20. It sounds super nice"
