Make Noise Telharmonic

Published on Feb 21, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The Telharmonic from Make Noise is an ode to synthesis history. In implements digital models of three classic early electronic tone generation techniques. The first one is a 3-Voice additive harmonic synthesis engine that is inspired by the development of the Telharmonium (where the module gets its title), invented by Thaddeus Cahill in 1897. The second is modeled after a computer program written by James Tenney at Bell Laboratories in 1961. This synthesis model was made to generate fluctuating noise bands. The third synthesis engine is a classic Phase Modulation modeler, as used in many commercial digital synths from the 1980's."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 vintage synth

Published on Feb 21, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"One of the first fully programmable polyphonic analog synths, the Prophet 5 is the most classic synthesizer of the eighties! It is capable of a delightful analog sound unique to Sequential's Prophet series in which the P5 was King! Five voice polyphony - two oscillators per voice and a white noise generator. The analog filters, envelope and LFO all sound great and are extremely flexible. The P5 had patch memory storage as well, which scanned and memorized every knob setting for storing and recalling your sounds - a desperately needed feature at the time!"

Vintage Electro-Harmonix EH 0400 Mini-Synthesizer

via this auction

"For sale is one of EH's coolest & rarest products - the EH Mini-synth, made around 1980. This thing's a tiny analog synth that's powered by (2) 9v batteries, or AC adapter. It's got a built in speaker and sounds AMAZING! Electro-Harmonix makes rock’n’roll effects & this unit is true-to-form. It’s a vintage rock’n’roll synth.

The EH-0400 has a 25 note membrane keyboard (instead of actual keys) & a built-in speaker. It also has 1/4″ jack to plug into an amp. It features one analog VCO with a pulse waveform, octave divider, and LFO for Pulse-Width-Modulation. The filters and the phasor make for loads of tweaking fun, & all of the controls/features work. The Mini-Synth can get ornery with lack of use, since dust in the sliders & touch-sensitive membrane can make it a bit scratchy. But a bit of contact cleaner attention will keep it going for years. All of the notes play; I had fun messing with it, & I’m not even a keyboard player (strictly guitar here!).

Cosmetically, this EH-0400 is in nice condition for being 35+ years-old, with nearly all of paint still on the keyboard & all of the colored tips on the sliders. Included is a new power source, already set on the proper polarity (+ on the tip of the plug) & voltages."

shaduzLABS pink-0 - Raspberry Pi Zero Based Ableton Link to Clock/Reset Converter

"A short demo showing a working prototype of pink-0, a Raspberry Pi Zero based Ableton Link to clock/reset converter."

pink-0 Ableton Link to clock/reset hardware converter demo #2

Published on Feb 21, 2017

"pink-0 is sending clock and reset to DinSync Modseq.
The clock signal is also sent to an SSSR Labs Divider and used as trigger for a Mutable Instruments Peaks. The oscillator I used for this demo is a Frequency Central System X Osccillator, which goes into a Manhattan Audio VCA and finally into a Music Thing Modular Spring Reverb."

via ShaduzLABS

"When Ableton published the Link source code, I started experimenting with it and decided to explore the feasibility of a hardware Link-to-clock converter.

I made the first attempt with a Teensy 3.2 board and a a WIZ820io ethernet module, but due to some of the dependencies of Ableton Link, this approach proved too complex, as it would have required a complete rewrite of the low-level networking functionality.

Having abandoned the "bare metal" approach, the next natural candidate became a Raspberry Pi board: I had a Zero lying around and decided to use it to build the first prototype, mainly because of the power requirements and the form factor.

A couple of weekends later I had a working prototype and decided to design and order a PCB, which I only received almost two months later (thanks, Custom Office...). When the PCB finally arrived, I put everything together and spent some more time fine-tuning and optimizing here and there.

The final result is a hardware shield for the Raspberry Pi Zero board and the necessary software and scripts running on the Zero itself and providing real-time conversion from Ableton Link to eurorack-friendly clock and reset signals."

Roland Jupiter-6 Synthesizer Filter VCF Build - Demo 02

Published on Feb 21, 2017 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2017

Just kick back and enjoy these wicked analog multi-mode filter sounds. Lots of little sweet spots on this filter, if you skip around you might miss something really good. It definitely has that Roland sound.

Today I am demonstrating the Jupiter-6 filter clone I just finished building. See demo #1 for all the details. Basically the circuits and chips are the same as demo 1 breadboard test, just now they are stuffed into a 10HP eurorack module w/ some illuminated sliders."

Playlist with descriptions:

1. Modularjam 1

"My first Video of a simple sunday evening patch I played and recorded for myself. I use this for the documentation of my modular patch experiments.

The Drone: Is a Braids with the VOWL model, going thru the RT451 stereo multimode filter, one with HP the other with LP. They go to two channels of the 4ms VCA Matrix. The VCA Matrix is triggered from the Vermona Fourmulator, each LFO 90° shifted, so I get a quadrophonic effect in my studio with 4 speakers around my head.

Kickdrum: I used the Synthrotek ds-m, a wasp from doepfer, a channel from the HexVCA and a envelope from Intellijel. Triggered directly from the ALM Pamela's Workout.

The rhythmic plingplong: Is coming from the OSC-03 form MFB, triggered by the doepfer sequencer, the trigger is multiplied according to the voltage delivered to the A160-5 ratcheting controller.

The snare: Is a noise, going only thru the doepfer VCA in exponentional mode, controlled by an envelope, and then thru a Roland Demora stereo delay.

Jomox T-Rackonizer Filter Matrix Module

Published on Feb 21, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The SSF Entity Bass/Drum is heavily modified by the Jomox Trackonizer. The Malekko Varigate 8+ provides timing gate sequencing for the SSF Entity and Verbos Random sampling, which supplies control information to the T Rackonizer. The Verbos Scan & Pan offers VCAs and mixing functions under control of the Varigate 8+.

The JoMoX T-Rackonizer is an experimental filter network Eurorack module descended from the infamous T-Resonator. Comprised of two resonant T-ladder filters, a digital delay, envelope follower, and LFO, the T-Rackonizer uses complex internal feedback between these "nodes" to create both familiar and completely new sounds.

Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 Analog Synthesizer SN 000574

Prophet T8 Voicing Dropout Inner Recess

Sounds like voices 1 and 4 are out. The T8 is an eight voice synth and you will note for every eight note cycle he plays, the first and fourth notes don't play. Hence why it's not always the same keys. The notes played just cycle through the voice boards.

via this auction, also on Reverb.

"For sale, a Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 synthesizer. This synth is a beast! If you are considering this, I’m sure you are aware of its capabilities. The only issue I've found with it is there are times when a voice, or voices, cut out randomly in a wave-like or LFO fashion where certain keys will not play, but it’s not always the same key. After a couple seconds, the non-playing key will start playing and a different key will become inactive. All of the keys function properly when put in Unison mode. I’ve taken a video to show this behavior that I can send if requested." [above]

Vermona PerFOURmer simple four chord progression

Published on Feb 21, 2017 maxitobandito

"simple 4 chord progression ( 3 notes per chord) playing the Vermona PerFOURmer in poly mode 2. Sequencer and FX from Elektron Octatrack . Even if the same chord is played the Vermona plays different 3 oscillators each time- thats one of the magic tricks of the synth. Subtle changes of lfo rate/ intensity and filter envelope intensity were the only parameters I touched in this video. If you thinking about get a PerFOURmer, go for it! It sounds beautyful."
