"Secrets Afrique Bassline care of these modules: Oscillation, SE88 filter, Amp, CharcotCircles, Ste. 16, Lfo2. Bit of processing on the second half of the phrase.

Need big speakers to translate the bouncy sub freqs.

DP9 sequenced, one-take Logic clav performance—processed crunches and phases come from it too. Still own a D6 yo... but those clavinets from Logic are beyond marvelous.

Using CV (Control Voltage) with Ensoniq ASR-10 Sampler via Modular Synthesizer


Published on Jan 12, 2017 TheDaydreamSound

"Yep! It’s possible to modulate Ensoniq samplers with Control Voltage signals. For the longest time I saw that Pedal*CV input jack on the back of the Ensoniq Samplers and didn’t really care too much about it. Yeah it would be nice to have one of those CV pedals that was as far as my interest went. Now that CV products are widely available from the rise of Modular Synthesizers that little CV jack means a whole lot to me.

In this video I’m using an LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) sinewave signal to modulate various destinations of there instruments on the ASR-10. In addition, I’m feeding the audio output of the ASR-10 into the modular synthesizer, combining it with a Pulse wave and modulating the both signals with a -24db ladder filter.

There are a few steps that must be completed before this your Ensoniq sampler will recognize your CV signal. It’s important to note that all Ensoniq samplers have this feature with the exception of the Mirage and the ASR-X/PRO.

Below are the steps to take:

1. Press the “EDIT” followed by the “System*MIDI” button to get into the system menu.
2. Scroll until you see the “PEDAL” page.
3. Here you will have two option one will be VOLUME the other will be MOD.
4. Set the option to “MOD”.

That’s it! This will allow the incoming CV signal to modulate any of the Ensoniq’s modulation destinations the same way you would with any of the internal modulation sources. If your looking for this modulation option source the CV input is called “PEDAL”.

Have fun!"

Buchla 208r - Easel Sound Engine Clone by Roman Filippov


via this auction

"Buchla 208r in excellent condition. Built by Roman. Works perfectly and sounds incredible. This is the sound making part of a buchla easel minus the keyboard. Just like any other synth module it can be played from triggers and voltage..this one is calibrated to standard 1v/ octave to play with 'normal' gear, but can easlily be set back to buchla standard. If you want buchla sounds but don't want to go all the way down the rabbit hole this is a great way to do it."

Word is this is closer to the original Buchla Music Easel, compared to the BEMI Easel, as it is a direct clone of the original.

How to make a Berlin School track in a few minutes and with minimum gear


Published on Jan 12, 2017 Alba Ecstasy

"How To make a Berlin School track in a few minutes and with minimum gear. Sure, this is a simple track, but starting from here you can add layers of sounds.

I used:
- for sequence: Volca Keys in different modes. Volca Keys is sequenced by the Circuit in Cmin. For reverb I used Clouds.
- for pads: Volca Fm - and I played on it with the Beatstep Pro, because the keys are very small to play nice pads. For delay I used Roland Demora.
- for drums: Novation Circuit.
And this is it! I even not played the internal sounds of the Circuit, so if I'm adding a new (bass) sequence from it, the track can be improved a lot!
All the above gear are directly recorded into the Logic Pro X via my audio interface Echo Audiofire 12. No other FX were added."

Announcing Bitwig Studio 2


Published on Jan 12, 2017 bitwig

"Today Bitwig GmbH is proud to announce Bitwig Studio 2 - the new version of the highly acclaimed music creation software for Windows, macOS and Linux."

I almost skipped this announcement as Bitwig of course is a DAW, not a synth. However, it does include a few synth features and they added VST3 support. As you can see in the video above, the current release has a big focus on the modulation capabilities of Bitwig. Below is an excerpt from their site.

As for specific soft synths included in Bitwig, they list the following 11 Devices: Drum Machine, E-Clap, E-Cowbell, E-Hat, E-Kick, E-Snare, E-Tom, FM-4, Organ, Polysynth, Sampler.

"A WORD ON MODULARITY

From the beginning, the idea of modularity has been central to Bitwig Studio. While digital audio workstations (DAWs) aren’t known for taking a modular approach, creating Bitwig Studio from the ground up allowed us to rethink previous assumptions. This led us to focus not just on individual devices but on strengthening the ways they interact with and support one another. And this ideal has born interesting, user-friendly fruit.

BITWIG STUDIO 1

Nested Device Chains

The first outcome was nested device chains, which allow you to house devices within other devices. A seemingly simple benefit of this is that device presets can now contain multiple devices, but this also opened up novel signal routing possibilities. For example, what if any device or plug-in could be used in a multiband configuration? Or if it was easy to add effects to just the wet signal? Or if devices could be added to a feedback loop..?
A core principle of modularity is that different users with different wants and needs can use the same tools in equally accessible and unique ways. Nested device chains allow newcomers to focus on richer sounds while initiated users can use additional devices as a way of extending their sonic palette. Win, win.

Modulation Sources

Another powerful outcome of modular thinking in a DAW was modulation sources. First, we created an elegant, efficient way for modulation signals to be assigned — simply clicking an arrow to go into routing mode, and then using parameter knobs themselves as attenuators. With a clean interface, it became possible to create and manage an unlimited number of modulations, all operating at audio rate.

And from there, all nested devices can be modulated as well. So instead of putting an LFO on our synth’s cutoff filter and then spending a lot of time trying to rebuild a synced LFO-effect on the distortion amount, we just assign the synth’s LFO to both the cutoff and the distortion amount. Additionally, Bitwig Studio 1 had devices made just for modulating other devices (like a standalone LFO, or a routable audio sidechain effect). A lot of freedom was provided by these early modulator devices, but at the cost of having to nest any devices you might want connect to each other.

BITWIG STUDIO 2

Modulators

The idea of modulators has been reclaimed in Bitwig Studio 2. Instead of using a standalone “modulator” device to modulate a single device, each device now has slots that can house true modulators. This means any device (or plug-in) you are using can now have an envelope added to some of its parameters. Or a stepper, or audio sidechain effect. Or 12 LFOs. As modularity dictates, how you use the tools is completely up to you.
This also serves to make things more efficient for both CPU cycles and screen real estate. Instead of building an arbitrary number of control devices onto each instrument — say, two LFOs — the user can now add and subtract these options as they see fit. And again, presets from Bitwig Studio 1 and 2 will load properly, with modulators added as needed.
We don’t add a chorus to every instrument just in case the user wants it. Instead, we create a good chorus device that you can add when you want it. We are just applying this concept to modulations now, and we look forward to what you will do with this extra flexibility.

LOOKING AHEAD

Modularity will continue to play a key role in our upcoming releases, both for users and under-the-hood. Additional devices are always under development, including some which will bring modular concepts more directly to the user. And a little bit down the road, our internal development tool for programming Bitwig Devices will be available to anyone who wants to go down that road. (You’ve probably seen some older screenshots of that environment; new paint and programming languages are coming.) We look forward to inviting you in for these enhancements and much more…
Thank you for having read this far. If you don't own Bitwig Studio yet, then come join us on our journey. We’d love to welcome you as part of the Bitwig community.

Best wishes,
The Bitwig Team"

It gets interesting towards the end around the 2:00 minute mark, when I have the Sine Wave Out of the Batumi going into the V/OCT of Clouds to modulate the Pitch."

KORG Officially Announces Full Size ARP ODYSSEYs

ARP ODYSSEY FS | The Legend Returns with Full Size

Published on Jan 11, 2017 ARP

Previously seen here, the full sized KORG ARP Odyssey is officially announced.

"The full-size ARP Odyssey is back in more ways than one! This limited edition series is a true 1:1 recreation of the legend, proudly assembled in the USA, where the ARP story began.

Like the ARP ODYSSEY series that relaunched the brand, and the modules that followed, the FS full-size series offers the same three-filter configuration, plus modern amenities such as an analog drive circuit and MIDI with USB I/o or 5-pin input. The classic rubber pitch and mod pads also return, bigger than ever. All three color versions will be available in 2017!"


"Assembled in America, and available to the world once again.

The long-awaited full-size ARP ODYSSEY is now available in a limited edition.
The revival of the ARP Odyssey originated from a desire to reconstruct a legendary synthesizer of the 1970s, faithfully reproducing its original analog form while combining respect for history with an update for today's music production environment; it first took shape as the ARP ODYSSEY, completely analog but in a more compact 86%-sized unit.

KORG's next move is an even more faithful recreation of the original ARP Odyssey: it's the full-sized ARP ODYSSEY FS. With a standard keyboard and a body that emanates a sense of solidity, it delivers great playability and a persuasive stage presence. Just like its original version, the instrument is assembled in the United States, faithfully carrying on the quality, sound, and spirit of the original. Choose from three designs: Rev1, Rev2, or Rev3. Only a small number of each is being produced. Don't miss your chance to obtain a full-sized ARP ODYSSEY – an instrument with decades of soul.

A full-sized ARP ODYSSEY with a standard keyboard

As an alternative to the 86% size ARP ODYSSEY with its compact slim keyboard, we've created the ARP ODYSSEY FS, a long-awaited full-size model with a standard keyboard. Featuring a spacious panel layout with faders that are smooth to operate, and a standard-sized keyboard for excellent playability, it's just what the synthesizer lover or keyboardist has been waiting for. Most of all, its weight and essence are the precise image of the original ARP Odyssey. With analog sound that has already established a firm reputation, it is fair to say that this is a true resurrection of the ARP ODYSSEY. Now you can obtain a full-sized ARP ODYSSEY that's perfect in every area including sound, stability, appearance, and size, but with the reliability of a brand new synth."

Vintage Soviet Snalog Synthesizer Faemi-1M SN 1087160


via this auction

Some great shots in this set.

"If you've ever dreamed of a dark analog sound from the Cold War times, here it is.
Lay back and listen to its sound demos: Dropbox

Faemi-1M (Russian: Фаэми-1М) is a full analog polysynth that was made in the USSR from the late 70s to the late 80s. This is one of the last released models (1987) with the latest revisions.
The synth is a predecessor of a famous Soviet "military synthesizer" Polivoks. Both synths were produced on Formanta radio factory in Kachkanar, Russia.

The synth features:
4-octave keyboard
Main VCO
LFO with ADSR envelope
Resonance filter
VCA
The control panel has 5 sections: voltage controlled oscillator, timbre, vibrato, filter, voltage controlled amplifier.
Controls parameters:
Oscillator: sustain, tuning, glide
Timbre: 4 waveforms (imitating piano, strings, clavinet, brass) that can be mixed together with different levels
Vibrato (LFO): frequency, depth, attack delay
Filter: attack, decay, sustain, release, cutoff, resonance, modulation
Amplifier: volume

I've done full maintenance and repairs of the inside electronics:
All dried electrolytic capacitors are replaced with modern ones
Circuit board tracks that were damaged by oxidation are rebuilt with solder and patches
Keys trigger contacts and potentiometers (knobs) are cleaned up so pressing/turning causes no cracks and pops
The synth was designed for use with European 220 V, 50 Hz electrical grid, so you will need a transformer if you're running on a different voltage/frequency. Using it in a lower voltage (i.e. American 110 V) will most likely cause problems in operation."

Vintage Roland Juno 106 Analog Synth SN 494113 w/ Blue LEDs & Original Box


via this auction

"Its in FANTASTIC condition, no rust just a couple of paint chips on the back corner. All of the artwork is there and looks great. No scratchy pots for they have been cleaned. All of the black coating was removed from all voice chips, and the old pins were replaced with super high quality gold plated pins, and there are super high quality sockets. Now if any of the voice chips EVER go bad all you have to do is pop it open and pull out the bad chip. New blue LED's, because they look awesome. The numeric display, the "A" preset LED and one of the chorus' were kept red. I think it looks cooler with a mix of both colors. The original battery has been replaced with a new one and a socket so if the battery ever goes out, just pull the battery and pop a new one in.

The listing also includes the original box! The fact that this still exist is crazy to me. It is in pretty rough shape with ware on the corners and some rips but all the artwork is there and there is even a sticker with matching serial number on the sides. The previous owner bought it brand new in the 80's and kept the box around. One of the inside flaps read "christmas tree" so I guess it used to store a tree, lol. Regardless its cool."

via the seller: "Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 fully serviced in good cosmetic and very good mechanical condition. I personally drove the Prophet 5 to "Klosman" Prophet 5 service specialist in Oakland, Ca. and had him completely service/restore the whole synth for me sparing no expense. The P5 also recently underwent a light finish restoration to maintain the wood, but not lose any of the original vintage character of the cabinet. Cabinet is very smooth.

This p5 stays in tune all the way up the keyboard and all functions work 100% and sounds just as it should! It was just played by a tech and given a very clean bill of health before putting up for sale.

Here is a complete list of work done to the synth:

Power supply: replaced cord, bypass caps; rewired for 2716 ROMs
Front panel: replaced pot, 3 dead LEDs, bypass caps; cleaned pots & switches.
CPU board: replaced battery, bypass caps, U337 DAC reference, ROMs.
Voice board: replaced caps, LM311 tune comparator, LM348 quad opamp, one SSM2020 VCA, two SSM2040 VCF chips.
Replaced rear panel 1/4 jacks. Replaced fuse holder. Replace Rear P5 Sticker with nos original.

This synth is a very nice example of a fully functioning REV 2 Prophet 5."

Nord Lead 4 Editor VST for Windows and MAC


Published on Jan 12, 2017 MrSynthmania

"The Nord Lead 4 is a polyphonic synthesizer with lots of knobs and switches to edit all relevant parameters directly. But some are not directly accessible and sometimes it can be usefull to controll the synthesizer within your DAW. Especially if the hardware is not nearby. All these is possible now with the Nord Lead 4 Editor Software. You can create your own sounds on a comfortable way.

The editor can be used as standalone and VST version for Windows 32 and 64 Bit and MAC OSX (tested with OSX 10.9). Be sure you´ve updated your Nord Lead to firmware 1.30. Otherwise the editor won´t work correctly.

The editor is optimized for a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 px.
You can purchase a full working version at https://synthmania.de/shop/ for only 15,00 Euros.

"Just a short improvised test example of what type of sounds are possible from the Benjolin circuit.

By no means is this a detailed demo - quick and fun only :)

This Benjolin V4 Macumbista was built by Derek Holzer.

Thank you - Adam"
