Mattoverse introduction

Published on Jan 26, 2017 mattoverse

New synth pedal from Mattoverse with eight step sequencer. Each knob controls the pitch for each corresponding step, of course. I thought perhaps the audio-in would effect the sequence being played, but from what I can see it doesn't appear to. There is a Master Gate input and Expression pedal for Master Pitch. There are two switches for Reset/Pause, one for Bypass, and one for Shape (curious what that one does exactly). There's a Rate and Mix knob that appear self explanatory. There are no additional details at this point.

Pioneer DSI Toraiz AS1 Demo by INHALT

Published on Jan 26, 2017 INHALTVIDEO

"When Dave Smith Instruments approached us to do sound design for a new compact synthesizer, we weren't really sure what to expect. It had been several years since the Mopho had come out, and we had used one to full effect as a touring bass machine, so we need it was going to be loud, fully functional, and easy to gig with. However, we did not expect the varied sonic palette that comes with the Toraiz AS-1. During our time working on the factory banks and sequences, we had a chance to listen to the synth on many different sound systems, and the constant descriptor that came to mind was "Pro One". We've essentially concluded that the AS1 is the modern day Pro One. It has the distinct drive and loudness associated with the high headroom of the mono synth and the tone colour has that charismatic dryness associated with the "One".

The sequencer present here is far more comprehensive than that of the Pro One, but nonetheless, just like the older, bigger brother, it oozes Electronic Body Music unlike anything else. The feel and movement present with straight 16ths playing back on the low end gives the speakers an expected workout but without sacrificing that all important low mid. Far too many modern synthesizers accentuate the low bass and the top end but usually leave the mid range (especially the low mids) either thin or almost nonexistent. Not so with the AS1. The mid range is completely present and this midrange is critical to achieving the signature bass line sounds that the Pro One does so effortlessly.

From a feature standpoint, the little metal box is fully stacked. Everything architecturally from the flagship Prophet 6 has been ported over and the only exception is a slimmer fx section. However, considering that the preoccupation with the AS1 will be basslines and sequences, we didn't feel left out despite the fact that the FX engine is slimmer.

Please take a listen on a quality set of headphones or studio monitors. The low end is very present here and many of the sounds in the demo emphasize basslines, so you'll need something that can transmit the low end. Computer speakers just don't do this synth justice. We definitely feel like Pioneer has an absolute winner with this little box and after wrapping the sound design, we gave the unit back with much hesitation as it was leading to song ideas and inspiration non-stop!"

TR-8/Prophet 6/OB-6 - sTR-8 bummin'

Published on Jan 25, 2017 Jae Ryan

"I sold my TR-8 awhile back and it was a huge mistake. I miss it so much. So much that I rented one from work just to have it in my studio. I wanted to throw a quick jam together with it!
The TR-8 is sending midi clock to the Prophet 6 and OB-6. I pre-programmed the synth sequences on their built in sequencers and the rest is all done live. I made a couple mistakes getting to excited with the vari section on the kick drum but left it in anyways. This was one take and turned out decent considering!
While creeping around YouTube tonight I learned that you can technically have 4 individual outs on the TR-8 if you pan the parts you want to separate and used that to my advantage in this video! This also made me realize how much fun I'm going to have using it in my real tracks down the road, but also makes mixing these simple little jams a walk in the park! As usual there's a splash of Lexicon 224 reverb and some stereo delay with modulation from UAD's precision delay!"

Plant Music #3 (MIDI Sprout + Knas + Metasonix + Arturia)

Published on Jan 26, 2017 Smokey Quartz

"In this video I connect the MIDI Sprout to a Philodendron ‘Congo Rojo’ and let it play the Ekdahl Knas Polygamist synthesizer and Arturia’s B-3 V Virtual Hammond Organ. Interjecting it’s noisey self into the mix is the Metasonix S-1000 Wretch machine, which is being “played” by the Polygamist via it’s pulse wave and gate outs. So, a plant is playing a synthesizer that is playing a synthesizer!? Ableton Live’s MIDI effects are also massaging the MIDI data coming from the MIDI Spout. It's really all just a bunch of fun noise."

It's a pic of the Bastl BitRanger with the Synapsis add on and an additional Breadboard.

"Synapsis is the pink add on for the BitRanger.

Its a matrix switcher 4 in 4 out with 16 permutations. The switches are momentary so you can patch it and then tweek the Bitranger, extending its playability.

I put the breadboard there to extend it even more

"The Q Chord is the latest instrument in the Omnichord Series. It incorporates technology from a basic keyboard and electric guitar and combines both in a portable, easy to use way. The instrument is divided up into three sections; a touch sensitive 'strum plate', a rhythm section and chord button section. Each of these areas can be used independently or combined. There are many wonderful and varied sounds obtainable from the strum plate and the combination of different musical sounds achievable is both impressive and unusual!"

"You are bidding on an EMU XL7 Command Station in good working condition with the original ROM and Owner's Manual. I have tested all knobs, pads and buttons and they are all functional. I have also tested all outputs and midi ports. I have not tested the USB port. Somebody painted this one black in all non-essential areas. It looks pretty cool but could've been executed a bit more thoroughly imo, does not affect functionality in any way."

Modular Synth Live Jam, with live looping.

Published on Jan 26, 2017 LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"First live session of the year. using a vegetable Oil can to set the pace. and just a whole lot of modular. and pitched vocals.

Recording is on soundcloud :-

Vegetable tin goes into a very dodgy looper I'm working on, more info to come. what you see is the extent of its functions though, and it only works in that tempo, for now. juno 106, has max release and is going into a VCA controlled by modular stuff, the sequence was pre programmed before i filmed, so it was a case of increasing the length half way through to open up the rest of the bass riff.

Lots of Arduino's involved. for sequencing modules, arduino nanos to be precise.
Drums are Hexinverter Électronique Mutant drums. except for the clap which is a sample on a SparkFun Electronics, Inc. Wav Trigger. VCO's are jurgen hailble's living VCO's, going into an ms20 style filter, schematic can be found by ian fritz. loads of other stuff..... testing out a panning module i made too which is more of just a switching module.

Yamaha CS10. Vocals going into a Roland vocal transformer then into a Boss Effects Pedals DS-1."

ROLAND SH-5 Analog Synthesizer 1976 | HD DEMO

Published on Jan 26, 2017 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2017 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the original Roland SH-5 analog monophonic synthesizer.

I played the Roland SH-5 with reverb effects from a Lexicon MPX-500 and delay effects from a Roland DEP-5.

The Roland SH-5 is a monophonic analog synth obviously heavily inspired by the ARP Odyssey. You will find every ARP Odyssey feature plus more features. The sound however, is completely different. A quite flexible synth with typical seventies Roland-Sound!"
