"Sometimes it's music

This is an experiment using the Squarp Pyramid to sequence and perform four parts: bells = Rings into Belgrad into H9, lead synth = Tides into Clouds, mid synth = STO into DLD, bass = STO into DLD. The STOs are shaped by Just Friends and the lead voice is shaped by Peaks."

Mutable Instruments Tides - Demonstrations by Perfect Circuit Audio

1. Mutable Instruments Tides Modulation Demonstration

"In this demo, we are using Tides as a slow modulation source to modulate the filter cutoff of the second resonant filter of Shelves. Braids in CSAW mode is the sound source fed through Shelves. Two LFO signals from Peaks are patched into Tides' first two waveshaping inputs to demonstrate how these morphing frequencies sound at low frequency. A Clock is then generated from Grids and patched into the Trigger input to demonstrate Tides' ability to function as an envelope. The top button is the mode select knob, which can select between oscillator mode, AD envelope mode, and ASR envelope mode."

2. Mutable Istruments Tides Oscillator Demonstration

"In this demo, we begin by just morphing the waveshape knobs while in oscillator mode. Each of the three knobs affects a different part of the timbre, with the third knob cutting off to nothing (with Parasites installed.) A modulation source from Peaks (LFO to slow triangle wave) is then patched into the third waveshape control. Frames is then switched into Sequencer mode, being clocked by Channel 2 of Peaks. These four sequencer channels from Frames are then patched into the two other waveshape controls, the Level VCA and the 1v/Oct input (with the internal Quantizer from Parasites enabled.) For a little bit of space, the final output is then patched into Clouds, being fedback for Size and Position modulation. A full morphing sequenced line with FX with only four modules!"

3. Mutable Instruments Tides Parasites Feature Demonstration

"In this demo, we show how the internal quantizer works within Tides Parasite. To access the quantizer, long press the top button. It will begin blinking with green, and with presses from the mode buttons, it will scan through the quantizer presets. The menu counts upwards in binary, including no quantization, semitones, a major scale, a minor scale, whole tone, pentatonic minor, poor pentatonic, and fifths. (These were scanned backwards in the video.) To exit the quantizer mode, long press the top button again. The second section demonstrates how the mode "Two Bumps" can be used to generate a shepards tone. This is taken directly from the Tides parasites manual on Mqtthiqs' github account. "Put the oscillator in this "octaves" mode, put the width at noon and the frequency around 9 o'clock; 28 octaves will ring at the same time, many of them way outside the audible range. Now feed a slow sawtooth to the 1V/Oct input, and adjust its amplitude so that it is 1V (or 2 or 3... any round number of volts). Monitor the Bipolar output: you will hear a Shepard-Risset infinite glissando."

"THIS IS ONLY AN EXPERIMENTAL TEST! This is a Non-Musical demo, inspired by Modular Landing's video. I thought I'd try out my newly arrived Xaoc Devices BATUMI Quad LFO as an audio source being processed by Mutable Instruments CLOUDS (while modulating Clouds at the same time.) No other modules, sounds or post processing involved."

Pyramid's Euclidean Rhythms Meet Novation Circuit

Published on Jan 11, 2017 John Keston

"In the spirit of #JAMUARY2017 (thanks to Cuckoo for having the stamina to do it everyday!) I have made a video track using the Squarp Pyramid, Novation Circuit, Moog Sub 37, PreenFM2, Rhodes, Minifooger Delay, and Korg KP3+. I’m not great at making these (hence the shaky video), but they’re fun to do every so often.

Euclidean patterns drive each of the four Circuit drum parts through individual tracks on the Pyramid. I have it setup with four Euclidean patterns per track bank for a total of sixteen. This way I can mix and match all sixteen patterns on the Pyramid and even swap them or combine them with patterns on the Circuit.

DREAMTRAK/Soulsby Synths Oscitron Jam #2

Published on Jan 11, 2017 Soulsby Synthesizers

"This is an experimental modular jam using just Oscitrons for sound sources. It's not intended particularly as a performance, but more as an interesting way to show off the module's features.
The only mix effects are volume, pan and little bit of room mic for ambience."

New Q179 Envelope++


"The Q179 Envelope++ module is a full-featured voltage-controlled envelope generator with many unique features including bizarre curves, a VCA and looping. Special modes offer dual-envelopes and 4-step sequencing. The Q179 can also be used as an LFO, gate divider, gate delay, arpeggiator, quantizer, random source, and more.

The envelope mode provides voltage-control of Attack, Decay, Release phases along with amplitude. Special features include control of initial Delay and Attack peak holding, along with linear, exponential and log curves.

Voltage control of slopes and amplitude is designed specifically to make using velocity signals from a keyboard intuitive and musically expressive. Press a key fast to produce a faster attack and higher amplitude. Use off-velocity from the Q174 MIDI Interface to control the release time according to how fast you release a key. The Q179 Envelope++ is made for musicians and their music.

Positive and inverted outputs makes it easy to send the output to a VCA and VCF without using a multiple and the THRU makes daisy-chaining simple. A multi-colored LED provides indication of the current state.
Envelope looping occurs automatically when a gate plug is not inserted, or controlled by a gate in GL mode (Gated Looping). When looping, outputs can be used as a multi-segment LFO with VC of speed, slopes and amplitude, and a variable pulse-width is available at the THRU output.

The dual-envelope mode creates an attack/sustain/decay envelope at the +OUTPUT and a separate delay/attack/hold/decay envelope at the -OUTPUT. These envelopes can loop automatically or by gate control. The THRU output operates as a voltage-controlled gate delay and gate extender.

The Q179 Envelope++ also offers a 4-step sequencer mode, complete with an internal clock and quantized outputs. Forward, up/down and random sequences are available. Works great as a keyboard arpeggiator, or stack multiple modules for longer sequences.

$256.00 USD - PJ Wrote: A fancy EG and dual EGs and a sequencer in one package? With a quantizer and gate delay too? Ummm, I'll take 4!"

New 'M-80' midicontroller for Roland MKS-80 - the MPG-80 alternative

Published on Jan 11, 2017 stereoping

"Productdemo of the Stereoping Synth Controller in 'M-80' edition for Roland MKS-80. This midicontroller contains all parameters of the MPG-80. It even goes beyond offering CC-message automation for the MKS-80 with it's built-in CC-SysEx-translator. In effect, it's a tiny, cheap alternative for the rare and expensive MPG-80.

From what i've heard the MPG-80 does not work that perfect and smooth when programming the MKS-80. As i don't own a MPG-80 i cannot test or show it. What i can show here is the M-80 working as smooth as a hot knive sliding into butter when firing the MKS-80 with edit commands. Simply plug the 'M-80' in between the Midi connection between your DAW and the MKS-80 and your ready to go. It forwards incoming notes from the DAW and merges them with the edit commands.

The video contains 3 parts:

a) short 3D-animation explaining connections, function and color layers
b) simple demo shaping a unison sound into a delayed-highspeed-LFO-VCO MOD-mess
c) a complete 4 minute song with permanent editing on UPPER and LOWER tone with the MKS-80 in DUAL mode listening on 2 midichannels. When you listen carefully you might notice some slight timing issues of the MKS-80. Well, it has to handle many notes on 2 channels plus the parameter change commands.

The MKS-80 in the video is REV5 with the Roland IR-3R03 VCOs. Other gear used: Roland Juno 6, Pearl Syncussion clone, Pearl SC-40, Volca Sample, Boss SE-50, Monarch EEM 3000."

Faking Fake Chords on the (Korg) ARP Odyssey - a chiptune-inspired patch tutorial

Published on Jan 10, 2017 Amplitude Problem

"In the past, I made a tutorial for playing chords and melodies simultaneously on the Moog Sub 37 using 8-bit home computer techniques [posted here]. It's no secret that I love the distinctive sound of an ultra-fast chip arpeggio, which is what the technique relies on to give the illusion of a chord. So, when I recently received Korg's amazing ARP Odyssey re-issue, which is paraphonic like the Sub 37, I had to give it a shot on that synth as well. It turned out to be more challenging, but completely possible, to achieve a very close sound.

Interesting note about the distortion. Curious if this is the case on all units.

"Everything is fully functional, sounds great and comes with ac and instructions. This was bought straight from Acidlab and didn't have an original box. There is a slight distortion which occurs from the headphone out on the bass drum and toms. The is rectifiable with an Acidlab prescribed resistor change, but I have not performed it."

KORG Volca Beats - MODIFIED with Switchable SNARE Mod

via this auction

"As you can see it has an extra switch installed. This switches in and out the infamous 'snare fix' mod. The standard factory Volca Beats snare is strangely distorted and grainy, and it has been suggested that this is down to a missing capacitor in the snare circuit. The mod adds this missing part and definitely smooths out the noise portion of the analogue snare, making it a little more TR808 like. Its subtle, but very effective. As some people might like the nasty crunch of the original snare better, we've made the mod switchable."
