New Nonlinear Labs C15 Videos

Nonlinear Labs C15 - Haarlem Sessions - Trancy World from Stephan Schmitt on Vimeo.

via Nonlinear Labs:

"In the Summer of 2016, Federico Solazzo visited us because he was curious about the C15. He is a very experienced and versatile musician, a proficient synthesizer expert and sound designer. We decided to give him one of our C15 pre-production units for a few weeks. We wanted to find out how the C15 would inspire him in the way he plays keyboards and designs sounds.

In October we brought a C15 to his home in The Hague (NL). Federico started to explore the instrument and created a collection of his own presets. We asked him to think about a number of music pieces or improvisations that would show some characteristics of the instrument in a video recording session.

As a location we chose Studio Helmbreker in Haarlem (NL) where Federico had recorded the latest album with his band 'Azure Hiptronics'. The main room has a great sound and atmosphere.

We were very lucky that two other members of the band - Luciano Poli (bass) and Satindra Kalpoe (drums) - joined in for some of the pieces. The recording took place on the 6th of December, 2016. Bowie Verschuuren was the man behind the camera. All tracks were recorded 100 % live; no overdubs or effects were added - only slight EQ-ing and limiting was used."

SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS PROPHET-5 rev 3 SN 6296 with Original Box

via this auction

"The Prophet-5 is an analog synthesizer that was designed and manufactured by Sequential Circuits between 1978 and 1984. With five voices of polyphony, the Prophet-5 is one of the first polyphonic analog synthesizers with patch memory. About 6,000 units were produced in three revisions by Dave Smith and John Bowen. The Prophet-5 is known for its use by progressive rock bands and film composers.

This unit is a Rev 3.3 with 120 programs, still housed in it’s original box. This one is exceptionally clean and in very good working condition. This piece has been serviced and tested, but the new owner may benefit from a more comprehensive inspection. This Prophet-5 is 110/220 VAC voltage selectable and comes with a Hosa FSC-502 foot-pedal. See photo’s for additional details."

New Synthrotek RND Module Now Available

Published on Feb 4, 2017 synthrotek

via Synthrotek

"Introducing the Synthrotek RND! It’s like math.random() for modular gear!

This handy module is a feature rich random voltage generator that is shallow and super powerful. It outputs random voltages (similar to a sample and hold) in time with either its internal clock, or with an external clock you can patch in. An external clock will bypass the internal clock, and the CV jack over the clock, so your random voltages will always be in sync with whatever you patch in. With CV control over both the clock speed and the range of your output voltage, you could create anything from a wildly fluctuating blur of notes all the way to a slow, lilting tune. The RND can also be used as a clock source with it’s clock out jack.


Clock Speeds:
Slow Range: 0.5Hz to 10Hz
Medium Range: 2Hz to 40Hz
Fast Range: 16Hz to 320Hz
Linear CV control over clock speed and range"

R-MONO Lab S³-6R 6 Voice Polyphonic Raspberry Pi Synthesizer

Published on Nov 29, 2016 R-MONO Lab

Note this is the first Synth-Sennin and R-MONO Lab post on the site. Synth-Sennin is the maker and R-MONO Lab is a maker club that Synth-Sennin is a member of. R-MONO Lab also features projects from other makers.

"The S³-6R is originally developed by The Synth-Sennin (The Hermit Wizard of Synthesizer) who was once a sound engineer of the Company "R". It is innovative digital synthesizer which is clearly different from general analog modeling synthesizer.

Individual synthesis based on original phase control and modulation thinking (αα-Phase Modulation). Driving in High-Resolution (24bit/96kHz) and 6-Polyphonic. Also it is a feature that very low alias noise even if extreme modulation. It adopts a Raspberry Pi as a platform.

Version 2 Additional Functions
• Oscillator Type (Including Noise)
• Phase Mutator
• Pre / Post Clipper"

CV Sequencer as an Oscillator Revisited - Eurorack Modular Experiment

Published on Feb 4, 2017 FatSynthDude

"I did a video of this like seven years ago, but the image quality sucked, and I recorded the audio with the damn camera like an asshole. So I thought I'd revisit the idea in a vid since the topic came up on Gearslutz. Nothing fancy going on here: Stillson Hammer mkII sends CV signals to a Make Noise STO, which in turn is clocking the Analogue Solutions Oberkorn at audio rates. From there, I'm just changing the value of different steps. I made sure to show that some basic waveshapes can be made in this video. There's a square wave I morphed into a PWM pulse by bringing harmonics in and out and there's a point where there's a double saw wave that was built (each saw was 8-steps, so essentially a series of saws played an octave up.) I also demonstrated how by having alternating steps that are minimized and maximized, you can create some square wave octave effects. And of course, I went out of my way to make unusual waveshapes just to show that a sixteen step sequencer can do all kinds of madness."

This appears to be the one in the video posted here.

Update: The listing states this has the MOOG style filter. It actually doesn't. Via Wikipedia: "Contrary to common belief, the initial version 'SH-3' did not infringe on the transistor ladder-filter patent of Robert Moog. It used a diode filter like the EMS VCS 3. The SH-3A does use a transistor ladder-filter and as a result can generate Moog-like sounds."

Yamaha CS80 Strings - processed through 3 band Resonator...

"Here I have processed my CS80 (#2) through a three band 'Resonator'. Very much like the Korg PS-3100 & PS-3300 resonators and also the one in the Polymoog - but with a lot more control over parameters..! I am only using the CS80's preset string patches with some slight after touch on the oscillators and later on I add the ring modulator."
