Published on Jan 9, 2017 Lost For Words

"All sounds from the Make Noise 0-Coast.

Today I caught up on all the 0-Coast videos on the Make Noise Channel - very inspiring and I wanted to create a track using only the 0-Coast.

So here's my little accumulative track. Even the kick drum is from this thing and I've shown the patch as the video backdrop. It's played on a low key obviously and I made it even kick-ier with EQ (Ableton's standard Kick EQ 1 in this case). The "hats" are modulated by the slope to give an open and closed effect. Soundtoys Echoboy and Valhalla VintageVerb for FX.

I hope you like it."

And a two previous tracks from Lost For Words featuring the 0-Coast:

A dark, spacey track made with these three beauties. Drums are samples of Vermona DRM1 Mark iii (because I haven't got an analogue drum machine yet). There is a mix of 3 bar and 4 bar loops here for some randomness.'

"Track made with Make Noise 0-Coast, Moog Mother 32, Roland JU-06 and JX-03

My 0-Coast is new so just getting to know it :) It plays the arp throughout this track. Some random slope time settings going on at the start and towards the end of the track I mix the 0-Coast's square osc into the Mother 32's external audio which provides some cool results.

All sounds from these 4 synths (1 track each + 1 recorded JU-06 Bass) and drums from Ableton. Plenty of reverb and delay :D

Improvisation LXXV: Prophet '08 PWM Pad


Published on Jan 8, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"As often happens when I sit to improvise, I start at the massive eight-voice Poly Evolver Keyboard with the intention of creating both a new patch and a new piece of music. The habitual presumption is that the greater the resources the greater the outcome. Then, at some point, I turn to the much simpler Prophet '08 for a few chords or a little melody, and the next thing I know, I'm thoroughly engrossed with that instrument, both sonically and musically. This is what happened tonight, so here's another piece of Prophet '08 music.

I find two qualities constantly helpful in composing: simplicity and limitation. I find complexity terribly distracting to creativity, like trying to write the next line of a difficult poem in a messy room. So, I would never want the sort of instrument that "does it all." As much as I love working with the fairly sophisticated Poly Evolver and its wide range of tones, I far prefer the simplicity and directness of the Prophet '08. The limitations of its design help to get and keep me focused on music, rather than on other technical tangents. Limitation challenges the mind to work extra hard and doubly search and strive for beauty with a smaller set of resources; and in so exerting itself, the mind achieves a higher good, a nobler beauty.

This piece uses a complex pulse width modulation pad that includes four oscillators of pulse width, each being slowly modulated at different rates. Between the four oscillators and the two P'08 units, there is an immense amount of detuning, making for a rich if slightly nasal end result. As usual, the modulation wheel is set to open the filter.

The musical idea behind this piece is simply contrary stepwise motion - the keyboard lines descending, with the pedal lines often ascending, or vice versa.

Make Noise 0-Coast Jam


Published on Nov 22, 2016 Cave Way

"Bleeps? Bloops? Love 'em. but let's try some Prog with the 0 Coast. Still getting my feet wet with the synth, so I tried to create a track and utilize the 0 Coast for all possible melodic aspects. All the synth parts are from the 0 Coast (controlled via the MFB D1 through midi) with 2 exceptions: 1.) piano (you're shocked I know) 2.) the sweepy/video gamey sound fx are from the D1 (and used to great effect to cover up parts I couldn't stand to do another take....) If someone knows how to make that sound on the 0 Coast, let me know!"

MFB Dominion 1 Videos by Cave Way

2. twiddlin' knobs - MFB Dominion 1, Elektron Analog Four & Octatrack
3. Jimmy Jam - MFB Dominion 1 - "Another day, another recording of the D1. Lots of overdubbed instruments including the D1, acoustic drums, various Elektron gear, a yamaha CS reface, real baby grand, the list goes on. D1 starts ripping about 2 minutes to close the piece out on a high note."

Published on Jan 7, 2017 Cave Way

"I had 2 hours to kill this wintry afternoon and decided to heat things up like we do in Ohio; with some space funk. This is as funky as a white guy from the suburbs can get. For the gear dudes the 0 - Coast is holding down the bass (courtesy of the D1) with the Tanzmaus (grit) and the OT (funky swing) holding down the drums. There's some drumbrute in there but got lost in the mix."

Song A Day #8 (0-coast + Empress Reverb)


Published on Jan 8, 2017 Steven Blum

"Every sound you hear is made using these instruments by Keith McMillen (QuNexus & K-Mix), Make Noise, and Empress Effects. In addition a Korg SQ-1 is used for a couple of the patterns. It's about 20 tracks of the 0-coast layered, this is just the last one I added. It's a fast 7-beat rhythm that remains constant throughout.

This is part of my project to record a piece every day for the month of January using only what you see here and a laptop. This is my first successful attempt at doing a video, but you can listen to the rest on my soundcloud if you're interested.

Roland JX-8P repair


Published on Jan 9, 2017 organfairy

"My Roland JX-8P synthesizer had developed a problem in the left channel: Sometimes the sound would disappear but I could bring it back by moving the plugs on the back side back and forth. So I knew that it was probably a bad connection somewhere.

The music in this video is 'Remember the nights' by The Motels which I play in a somewhat understated fashion. In addition to the Roland JX-8P I also used Roland CR-68 for the rhythm, Siel DK-80 for the bass, Korg Poly-800 for the strings, and Elka EM-44 and Casio CZ-101 for the rest."

"Take a look and listen to the Audio Damage Mad Hatter Digital Noise Source ADM07.

***No voice track -- all samples from the module***

0:00 Sweep
1:44 Triggering thru VCA
2:30 Adding CV

This Eurorack / modular synth module is an excellent noise generator, with High Pass Filter frequency and crossfading between another audio source and the built in oscillator stack measured from their own TR-606.

Perfect for customizing your type of noise, and I highly recommend for hi-hats as well.

First section sweeps through each of the knobs, then midway through I added some CV inputs via LFOs and some triggering by the Malekko Varigate 4.

The entire mix was fed through an Erica Synths Black Hole DSP granular delay with some feedback.

This module outputs mono. The DSP created the stereo effects for this video."
