Published on Feb 10, 2017 oscillator

"This is a third and final part of Insanity Trilogy. I used the same setup as in both previous parts - just a single E-MU Morpheus Z-Plane synthesizer with sequencer (K2000) and MIDI keyboard. No additional synths, samplers or external FX processors used. Everything you hear comes directly from Audio-outs of the Morpheus. To hear the full range of frequencies please use headphones. I hope you will find this soundtrack enjoyable :)"

"This is the same unit as shown (prior to service) in linked YouTube video. [above]

The now-discontinued Q was Waldorf's post-Wave virtual-analogue flagship, with three oscillators per voice (with an assortment of wavetables from the MicroWave Series), two digital-modeled filters (LP / HP / BP / comb / PPG SSM204x emulation) that can be individually panned, two effects processors, a built-in arpeggiator and step sequencer, among other, wildly flexible features....

This unit has been disassembled, comprehensively cleaned (using a dilute mixture of Murphy's Oil Soap and water, which works wonders on this type of textured paint), and serviced with new Bourns PEC16-4x20F 24-step rotary encoders (replacing all 58 of the the original, flaky Alps parts), as well as with new M3 x 5 pan posi fasteners to keep the whole unit square and solid!"

"Bypass. Mute. Send/Return.

Not every module has a bypass. Sometimes that’s lame. Not every source goes into a console with a mute button. Sometimes you want that. Sometimes you want to audition some filters. Send your VCO to some and decide what sounds best. This module allows you to do all these things. Times four.

Input your signal and use the three position switch to pass the signal directly to the output, mute the signal, or send it to another destination, such as a filter or effect, and then return the signal to the module. The outputs of each channel are normalized via switching jacks to the input below them so it is possible to input a signal to channel 1 and send it to four separate destinations via each channels send.

Its versatile. It’s useful. It’s fun."


Published on Feb 10, 2017 once upon a synth

"Let's make a shimmer reverb effect and apply it to a pad sound on the Behringer Deepmind 12 synth. The shimmer effect was created by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. It involves a placing a pitch shifter in the feedback chain of a reverb. The important thing is setting a high decay time on the reverb and a +1 octave pitch shift on the pitch shifter. The result is a high pitched sustained tone that rings out as you hold notes which creates this lovely texture."

"Yamaha MONTAGE Firmware Update Improves Sound and Control, Supercharges Workflow in Iconic Synthesizer Line

ANAHEIM (January 19, 2017) — Yamaha today released the second free firmware update (v1.5) to its popular line of MONTAGE synthesizers. The update adds features that enhance the instrument’s sound, dynamic control and workflow.

MONTAGE is the latest flagship synthesizer from Yamaha. With over 40 years of innovation, MONTAGE takes sound, control and workflow to a new high. OS v1.5 adds both new features and new content to inspire musicians more. Plus, it's a free download for all MONTAGE owners.

The new OS improves the Rotary Speaker effect and adds new organ Performances. New dynamic processor effects provide even more tonal character and dynamic control.

Control enhancements provide even more ways to use the Assignable buttons and Super Knob. With the OS update, they now carry more linkage options for players’ creative parameters. Improved Auto Beat Sync lets MONTAGE players jam with live drums or tracks. External MIDI Scene control is now possible, perfect for use with Ableton Live. Additionally, users can create or recall Favorites with the press of a button. A new Performance View feature allows visualization of split points, layers and more.

New workflow features allow even easier Part copy and navigation. Players are better able to control and track USB audio input volume. An improved backup file system lets users store and recall all their data in a single file.
“MONTAGE is a great synthesizer for all kinds of users. If you need amazing imitative instruments like pianos and strings, you’ve got it. If you need super-deep synthesis and controllability, you’ve got that too. Tie it together with an intuitive user interface and you have an instrument that serves a lot of needs.” said Nate Tschetter, marketing manager, music production, Yamaha Corporation of America. “The latest OS makes MONTAGE that much more powerful. We can’t wait to hear the music people make with it!”

Pricing and Availability
Yamaha MONTAGE Firmware v1.5 is a free update currently available to all MONTAGE users."

Baervaag - FM Synth

Published on Feb 9, 2017 Klevgränd products

"Baervaag* is a fairly simple FM synthesizer with one carrier and one modulator. The oscillator waveforms can be modified seamlessly between sine wave to pure square wave with PWM (pulse width modulation). All sounds in the soundtrack are made with Baervaag.

* Bärvåg = Carrier (Swedish)"

Desktop version:

iOS version:

iTunes: Baervaag - FM Synthesizer - Klevgränd produkter AB

"!!!OBS!!! Current price is an intro price and 35% off !!!OBS!!!

Baervaag brings FM synthesis to the masses! An easy to use but still powerful and tweakable synthesizer, accessible to everyone. Several parameters are sensitive to velocity which makes Baervaag very expressive and fun to play.

The additional LP filter, ”Wobbler”, and a simple stereo chorus makes this synthesizer versatile and a joy to tweak.

Noteworthy features:

• AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.

• 77 handcrafted presets created by professional musicians

• FM Feedback, Filter, ADSR Attack and Volume can be modulated by velocity

• Oscillators can be shaped between sine, square and PWM

• One ADSR for each oscillator.

• Controllable wobble factor that adds analogue unpredictability.

Important: Baervaag in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Baervaag with AUv3 compatible hosts.

iPhone 6 or later is recommended.
iPad Air 1 or later is recommended.

"First Touch fooling just a little with 1 PAD and 1 ARPEGGIO

BEHRINGER DEPPMIND 12 is a 12 voice analog polyphonic synthesizer.

I must admit that I had my reservation after having heard all the demos circulating in the web. The synth appeared to be soft und dull. And srue it is not the grittiest but it has a nice an sweet sound and seems to be very adpted to ambient and pad based music in general -- but that is only my first impression.
What definitely sucks is the keyboard. On some keays there is sometimes a little resistance to overcome as you can find it very old pianos and since you cannot predict when and where you will encouter it it is irritating. Also the edges of the keys scratch your skin when touched more than they should."
