Moogfest Announces Protest Stage in Response to HB2/Travel Ban

via Moogfest

"Once again, we are stunned by discriminatory politics in our beloved home of North Carolina and across the U.S.

Last March, North Carolina state legislature passed House Bill 2, a law that enables discrimination across gender, sexual orientation, and class. Specifically, the law eliminated past protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, stripped local government control over minimum wage, removed the right to sue for discrimination at the state level, restricted city councils ability to protect local residents from discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation, and barred transgender people from using bathrooms that do not match the gender they were born with.

Moogfest 2016 .: Day 2

Published on May 21, 2016 Moogfest

Moogfest took an immediate stand against the law, reaffirmed our commitment to protest inequality, and offered a safe space for all artists, fans, and visitors who attended. This past December, despite the ongoing work of our community and our allies, lawmakers failed to repeal the law.

Now, as we prepare for the 2017 festival, we are faced with new and mounting concerns. Lawmakers in Texas and Kansas have taken steps toward enacting laws similar to HB2. And in his first few days in office, the 45th president has taken actions, such as the travel ban, that threaten our foundational beliefs and intimidate members of our diverse global network of thinkers and makers. But we are not afraid. We are not hateful. We are alive in our mission to bring the dream of a more equal society to all humans. We seek out facts, respect evidence-based science, and welcome a wide-open worldview. We believe this base of knowledge powers creativity, imagination, and innovation.

We stand with the millions who marched on January 21st in cities around the world for the rights of women. We fiercely support the march’s mission of standing “together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.” We also stand with those who have been continuing to protest over the last few weeks. The intersectionality of those participating in these protests makes it clear that we cannot turn inwards, and we cannot exist solely for the individual. As said by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while behind bars for protesting in Birmingham, AL, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

We are inspired by this movement and the spirit of those that came before it. The fight against inequality echoes our own mission to design radical instruments for change and reflects the legacy of Bob Moog, the inspiration behind Moog who believed that true innovation comes through collaboration, not exclusion. Moogfest is transformed, by the urgency of our times, and we invite you to keep marching with us into the future.

• Write to North Carolina politicians to share your love for the people of our state and your strong opposition to HB2 and other discriminatory laws. You can write your own or use this form from Equality NC or this form from

• Support the work of our allies at the ACLU of North Carolina and in other states around the country.

• Join us at Moogfest 2017 and attend the Protest Stage, a dedicated space for resistance. As one of our key themes this year, Protest will also be brought to life through workshops, installations, conversations, and masterclasses. We will stand in full accord with artists from various communities to collectively celebrate inclusivity and elevate the fight against discrimination here in North Carolina and across the world.

Participating artists on the Protest Stage will be announced soon in our weekly newsletter, Future Thought Future Sound. Sign up here.

Improvisation on a "Concerto Generator" (1977)

Uploaded on Oct 9, 2010 MuStudio

"Laurie Spiegel Playing the Bell Labs Digital Synthesizer, better known as the Alles Machine or Alice, was an experimental additive synthesizer designed by Harold G. Alles and Douglas Bayer at Bell Labs in 1977-78.

This composition was commissioned by Bell Labs and the Motion Picture Academy for the 50th anniversary of talking pictures. Working with the Alles synthesizer, with its extensive array of input and output channels for control, was a real pleasure after years of GROOVE's extreme restrictions. The interactive software I wrote for this composition recycles the player's keyboard input into an ongoing accompaniment. However, writing the software from a remote DEC PDP-11 computer (see also the PDP-11 FAQ and PDP Music Survey) in the new "C" computer language still undergoing frequent change, within a still-experimental UNIX operating system, without the control inputs or sonic output, under a tight deadline, while the Alles synthesizer hardware was still under construction, turned out to be quite an adventure.

It can orchestrate and perfome musicale scores as fast as a composer at its controls can think them up; create previously unheard musical sounds; and raise or lower the pitch of an instrument or human voice in real time-instantly-so that a man speaking into a microphone can be made sound like Donald Duck or Ezio Pinza. The machine divides sound into its frequencies and amplitudes, processing it un up to 200 million operations per sesond.

BLACK SHAPE - Doom Room (Franz Alice Stern RMX) from Tiptop Film on Vimeo.


Title: Doom Room

Remixer: Franz Alice Stern

Shot and edited by: Piero Fragola

Label: Tiptop Audio Records

Genre: Techno

Mastering by Tommy Bianchi @ White Sound Mastering Studio

Distribuited by Wordandsound

«Just like Black Shape's track “Doom Room”, remixed by Franz Alice Stern, “Doom Room”'s video has been remixed too; starting from the hand-drawn character of the original animation videoclip, here the little monster has become a sculpture, again realized by the artist Matteo Giampaglia. That cute bi-dimensional baby-monster is again protagonist, but now it's physical and corporeal, lit up by the fire in a mysterious night shooting, among flowers and sparks.

The fire twinkles both inside the monster and in the environment that surrounds him, like an element that gives life to the monster's rough materiality, just like the pervasive rhythm of the track which permeates the sounds and the melodies.»

«Come la traccia “Doom Room” di Black Shape, remixata da Franz Alice Stern, anche il video di “Doom Room” è stato remixato; partendo dal personaggio disegnato a mano del videpclip animato originale, qui il piccolo mostro è diventato una scultura, realizzata ancora dall'artista Matteo Giampaglia. Quel grazioso mostriciattolo bidimensionale è di nuovo protagonista ma adesso è fisico e corporeo, acceso dal fuoco in un misterioso footage notturno, tra fiori e scintille.

Il fuoco luccica sia dentro il mostro che nell'ambiente che lo circonda, come un elemento che dà vita alla materialità grezza del mostrino, proprio come il ritmo pervasivo della traccia che ne permea suoni e melodie.»

Yamaha FS1R FM Rack Synthesizer SN PH01101

via this auction

If you own an FS1R and iPad see my editor here.

"It is almost impossible to describe the sound, flexibility and power of this machine without playing and hearing it. The FS1R is capable of any sound you can imagine.

The FS1R would be not for everyone, but a gem for the one who is seeking something special.

There are some small marks on the rack ears from mounting and on the top plate. This is a 240 Volt version.

In 1998, after several years without producing a single FM synthesizer, Yamaha released a new FM powerhouse...the FS1R. This little beast is far from your average FM synthesizer. Not only is it an eight-Operator variant, as opposed to the six- and four-Operator FM of the DX/TX lines, but it also features a new technology called Formant Shaping Synthesis. Formants are the spectral patterns making up the sounds of human speech. This allows for the creation of vocal like timbres but can also be applied in many different ways to create incredibly unique sounds that you won't find on any other synths.

DX7 aficionados will like the fact that the FS1R has almost complete compatibility with 6-Operator FM synths: you can send, via MIDI, a patch from a DX7, for example, and the FS1R will convert it to an identical-sounding patch in the new synth. A lot of the preset Voices actually come from the DX7's library. It's also possible to program sounds from DX7 sound charts, finding an algorithm that has an equivalent layout to the DX algorithm and turning off the unwanted Operators.

The complexity of working with the synth is far outweighed by the amazing sounds that it's capable of. It truly sounds like nothing else out there. From huge evolving pads, to shimmering EPs, fantastic organs, screaming leads and booming basses.. this synth can sound industrial and cold one minute, and then warm and almost analogue the next. With some time dedicated to learning how to edit the patches, or create your own from scratch, there's really no sound that this synth isn't capable of making."

Ableton ARP Odyssey MegaPack

Published on Feb 6, 2017 Expanding Sound

"Get the packs here-

The ARP Odyssey is a classic, and currently on a relevant run again, thanks to Korg’s fantastic reissue and iOS app. I purchased mine quickly after it hit shelves, as well as the iOS app, which was more recently released. I certainly don’t regret it. It has one of the more odd interfaces for a synth I’ve seen; its setup is definitely unique. Once I navigated around for a few hours I was able to make some wild tones with it, and have used it on countless songs by this point. You might be thinking, why would I decide to make an Ableton pack when there is an iOS app based on the synth as well? This is my take on the instrument. The body on the iOS app isn’t where I would like it to be. You will be able to achieve some very full, as well as disntinct sounds from my pack. I used Ableton’s sampler in some different ways, that will give you an Odyssey sound all its own. I Hope you enjoy the instruments, and if you create anything with the sounds please send your songs to us so we can hear your work! It brings us joy to know that people are using the instruments we worked hard on to be creative."

EWI Improv: Testing New Setup with Parat+

Published on Feb 3, 2017 Marc S. Langelier

"Parat+ is really great to work with and is really helping to bring my set-up together. I spent some time today just getting the 2 iPads and the laptop communicating with each other & Parat+, and then starting to expand on my Parat+ presets to control everything.

Currently on my iPad4 I am running Parat+ along with Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth to connect to the iPad Air2, as well as connecting to the Laptop simultaneously via rtpMIDI.

I'm also running Apollo on the iPad Air2 for Parat+ to control iOS synths. etc., from the iPad4 as well as using MusicIO to send audio & MIDI from the iPad Air2 (via USB) to the DAW in the Laptop.

For live performance the Laptop is running rtp MIDI (iPad4) along with the MusicIO plug-in inside of AudioMulch to receive audio & MIDI (iPad Air2 - I'll try this with FreeStyle and Usine too).

I was using Animoog along with Alchemy & ABSynth today and had a simple ambient drone going (sorry, I'll be moving away from the drones soon, but they're very convenient for testing a setup). I was triggering Alchemy via Animoog's keypads. Then modulating X&Y path origins in Animoog via one pair of Parat+ faders and with another pair of Parat+ faders modulating Alchemy's MorphPad X&Y. ABSynth was my EWI sound Source. Pretty simple, but now that's it's working, I can start getting a lot more sophisticated with it.

I put this video up as a work in progress for my setup. I'll be replacing it soon with a more interesting version the utilizes a lot more of the possibilities..."

iTunes: PARAT+ - Sebastian Lexer

"Introductory Offer: 48% reduction until 4th February!

Parat+ is an Open Sound Control (OSC) and MIDI controller app allowing intuitive and sophisticated control of networked sound and visual computer software and hardware devices. Parat+ has powerful gestural touch screen controls and multitouch gestures available in the most efficient and intuitive ways possible. Developed by practitioners for practitioners, Parat+ is a tool for the musician, artist and technician using technology to advance their art.

Much more than a virtual ‘fader box’, it allows you to record, remap and set controls instantly and intuitively. Swipe and multitouch gestures record, loop and remap the interval of each fader and responsivity curve. Rescale, enlarge, pause and interrupt to modify your controls in realtime. Control sound levels, effects parameters, synthesis, lights and more via OSC and MIDI simultaneously.

Parat+ combines powerful software and hardware parameter control with data automation and manipulation. It is fully compatible with OSC enabled software such as:
• Max
• PD
• Processing
• Digital Performer
• Reaper
• Reaktor
• Ardour and more.

All other software and hardware including DMX for lighting rigs can be controlled via MIDI.

The fader-style controller modules at the core of Parat+ can control parameters and functions of any MIDI and/or OSC enabled software and hardware. Multiple OSC targets can be defined to optimise user flexibility.

The Faders offer unparalleled realtime control via the multitouch three point control feature which allows the user to remap the interval and responsivity curve of each fader in realtime.

The touch gesture features include:
• One finger gestures to control the fader value.
• Two finger gestures to adjust the fader's minimum and maximum values.
• Three finger gestures to adjust the minimum, maximum and responsivity curve.

Use absolute touch mode to have the Fader value jump to whichever finger position is applied and relative touch mode to avoid any sudden jumps due to changes in finger position, allowing for seamless transitions in volume etc..

Each Fader can also be remotely controlled and automated by the Gesture Recorder, internal LFO generators, audio analysis and sensors, external OSC sources and MIDI controllers.

Use Parat+ as a central control hub for any performance and production setup, and shape OSC data streams sent to Parat+ to control your software and hardware parameters. Incoming OSC data (e.g. data from sensors, analysis modules and generative algorithms) can be modified and modulated using the the scaling and modulation features of Parat+ Sources and Faders.

Gesture recording and playback allows looped and one-shot automations of unlimited length.

The simplicity and coherence of the tools enable any novice to venture into custom built controls, while the accustomed performance system developer will appreciate the time saved for complex setups.

The philosophy behind Parat+ is to extend and assist your practice without imposing an approach. The app has been designed with the knowledge that creative work requires tools that can grow with their users, allowing individual and intuitive creative application while maintaining flexibility and diversity. Artists who are familiar with programming will appreciate the intuitive approach to data handling and parameter mapping. Users who lack experience with sophisticated technology will find themselves empowered to embrace cutting-edge interactive technology in the most intuitive and approachable manner. By keeping technical concerns to a minimum, the user is free to make artistic and aesthetic choices guided by their own creativity, avoiding the constraints of conventional software and controllers."

The track has been published last year in summer for the first time and had a different name in the beginning. It was called "homage to the strymon timeline delay".

Korg ARP Odyssey with External Audio Input from Casio SA-76

Published on Oct 3, 2016 Doug Plate

"Since I got my Odyssey, I've tried running various different keyboards into the Ext Audio Input to process through the VCF/VCA. Until now, everything I tried ended up sounding noisy or distorted (and not in a good way).

I recently picked up a Casio SA-76 at the thrift store and was surprised at how great the keyboard sounded through headphones, so gave it a try. It seems like a perfect match and comes through the Odyssey filter sounding really thick.

A Beatstep is controlling the Odyssey note sequence and there's lots of modulation on the filter - including Oscillator 1 in LF mode -affecting oscillator 2 and the SA-76 coming through it.

I won't apologize for the thrift store gear, but I will apologize for the length of the video: probably about 3 times longer than needed! I guess I was just enthralled by the sound of my own filter!

Recorded using the Audio Recorder in my Casio Privia Pro PX-5S because it's just so convenient."

Sequencer Control of Korg ARP Odyssey Filter (The Easy Way)

Published on Sep 12, 2016 Doug Plate

"Here is an updated, short video featuring the Korg ARP Odyssey and the Casio PX-5S showing and an easy way to control the Korg Arp Odyssey filter using a control voltage sequencer like the Beatstep. Just use a normal 1/8" to 1/4" adapter to connect sequencer CV Out to ARP Pedal input.

The Rhodes sound is supplied by the amazing Casio Privia PX-5S which also served as the audio recorder.

The question came up - why not just use the CV-In jack to control the filter from the sequencer? As this video demonstrates, in this configuration, the filter can be controlled by the sequencer while the oscillators notes are controlled by the keyboard producing a pseudo-polyphonic or multitimbral effect. Using CV-In, the oscillators would follow the sequencer also."

Also featured are the Alesis Quadraverb and Tascam DP-008EX digital multi-track recorder. The Odyssey patch settings are shown in the video."

Korg ARP Odyssey "Singing" Patch

Published on Jan 27, 2017 Doug Plate

"This is a patch that has a subtle vocal quality. I think the patch settings are fairly visible in the video, but some notes: Osc 1 is in it's lowest possible in-tune tuning with Osc 2 synced and several octaves higher. A little touch of S/H on the Osc 2 freq. and the filter freq. that is triggered by the keyboard to add a little random variation to the patch. Gate Out patched to Trig In on the back panel for single-triggering (legato playing doesn't re-trigger the envelope). Also CV Out patched to CV In for true monophonic keyboard response. I switch between Sine and Square wave LFO on Osc 1 and use the slider as modulation control. Also use Osc 1 ADSR modulation slider for pitch bend in some places instead of the pads. The echo effect is provided by Alesis Quadraverb.

This was a very expressive patch and so, as usual, I got carried away and made this video WAY TOO LONG!"
