Malekko's Varigate 8+ meets Bitwig 2.0

Published on Mar 10, 2017 DRD_Tutorials

"Having a little fun tonight seeing how I can use Malekko's Varigate 8+ to sequence synths inside of Bitwig using the new modulators. I'm sure i'll put together a tutorial very soon sharing all the cool stuff I discover."

Novation Supernova II demo

Published on Mar 10, 2017 Chris Bran

"Hello there! In this song apart from the sounds I tweaked on my Supernova II (silver rare version) I used the Korg M1 / T2 choir sound.
Some tom samples were also merged into the track. The rest comes from this magnificent synth. Cheerio!"

Technics SY-1010

via this auction

"This is a Japanese domestic market synthesizer from the late 1970's by Technics. A simple looking synth capable of making a variety of sounds.

This particular unit came from a private collector in Japan, has a clear,acetate overlay in Japanese describing some functions or patches (not really sure)

This machine is clean cosmetically and fully operational , it was also upgraded with audio grade capacitors prior to my purchase. This is a 100v version so a step up/down converter is a good idea for any prolonged use."

K-Board controlling the Modal CRAFTsynth

Published on Mar 10, 2017 Keith McMillen Instruments

"We hooked up a K-Board to the Modal CRAFTsynth through an iPad running Cubasis. We then mapped the pressure sensitivity of K-Board to the filter cutoff of the CRAFTsynth allowing filter modulation directly from the keys of K-Board."

Pamela’s New Workout controlling Akemie’s and Dinky’s Taikos

Published on Mar 10, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"Pamela's New Workout is used to generate triggers, random voltages, and LFOs to create an upbeat rhythmic patch with Akemie's Taiko and Dinky's Taiko. Pitch variation comes from randomly modulating Akemie's ratio, while rhythmic variation is generated by feeding random voltages back to Pam's Workout's inputs and somewhat off-time clocks to Akemie's FM feedback amount.

Pamela's NEW Workout, from ALM Busy Circuits, is an update from their Eurorack classic, Pamela's Workout. It is a compact programmable clock source, with eight individual outputs. Now upgraded in Pamela's NEW Workout is an OLED display for greater clarity and presentation of information, along with some other hardware developments and a completely redesigned software. Each output is now expanded to include rhythmic waveforms instead of just clocks and triggers. Its ability to interface with other gate signals has also been improved, with dedicated MIDI and Din Sync outputs available with the expansion modules, as well as rock solid clock stability."

Patch Notes #32 - Chord Organ w/ Varigate 8 & Voltage Block

Published on Mar 10, 2017 Voltage Control Lab

"Trying out the new Eurorack Music Thing Chord Organ with some chord sets by James Bernard and the Malekko Varigate 8+ and Voltage Block to modulate and sequence a whole ton of other things.

The Music Thing Chord Organ is loaded with one of the chord sets created by James Bernard and set to square waves, routed to the Make Noise MMG and on to Mutable Instruments Clouds. A channel on Make Noise Tempi is routed to Rene, the CV out from which is modulating chord shape on the Chord Organ. Tempi is also clocking Pressure Points which is modulating the root note on Chord Organ. The trigger out from Chord Organ is routed to Make Noise Maths channel 1, the unity output sent to the MMG frequency cutoff to shape the chords as they are generated.

Another out on Tempi is routed to the Malekko Varigate 8 which has the end of sequence gate out routed back into the random gate input to randomize the pattern (or drum map) every bar. Gate channel 1 (the kick channel in the drum maps) is routed to a mult, then to Make Noise Maths channel 4 trigger in and trigger in on Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas, with Maths variable channel 4 output routed back to Basimilus pitch input. One channel on the Malekko Voltage Block is modulating the fold input on the Basimilus. The clock out from Varigate 8 is routed to the Voltage Block in external clock mode, so it doesn’t randomize with the Varigate.

Gate channel 2 (the snare channel) on the Varigate 8 is also routed through a mult, then to the Malekko AD/LFO, and the Bang input on the Moffenzeef Modular GMO running the Ring Mod alt firmware. The GMO is routed out through the Make Noise Optomix, which is opened by the ADLFO channel to volume shape it into a more snare-like sound. The output from the Optomix is routed out through the Mutable Instruments Warps running the Parasites alt firmware in delay mode, then on to the Mix4. Two channels on the Voltage Block are modulating the specimen and speed controls on the GMO to get some motion from the snare sound.

Gate channel 5 on the Varigate 8 is routed to the trigger input on Mutable Instruments Braids which is set to cymbal mode. Using settings in the Bees in the Trees alt firmware, the internal envelope length is modulated via the FM input. A channel on the Voltage Block performs the modulation, getting the effect of opening hihats. Braids is routed out to the remaining channel on the Optomix for volume control.

The Roland System 1m is generating the bass part sequenced by the Pressure Points and Tempi, routed out to the Mix4."

Yamaha GS-2 Vintage FM synthesizer

via this auction

You can find some demos of one posted here, and previous posts here.

"Up for sale is a (1) very rare Yamaha GS-2 synthesizer with weigted 73-keys wooden keyboard, GS-2 pedal unit, voice library for the GS-1 / GS-2, stand (which is the lid too), and power cable. There's a voltage selector on it and the serial number is: 1194.

Made in 1982 and still in good working condition, except the 'store function'. That needs attention. It sounds superb, very warm! The keyboard is great to play on, this synth deserves a good new home.

Cosmetically it's in fair condition for its age. There are some scratches on it, minor rusty spots, wear and tear and the tolex has small signs of use (see photo's)."

Rheyne - Sequenced Jam #24 (Moog, Make Noise, Expert Sleepers)

"Recorded using the Expert Sleepers ES-8 interface, with sounds from Make Noise and Moog synths. Audio was recorded from two outputs on the ES-8 to a Yamaha MG12 mixer, sent to the XLR inputs on a Tascam DR44. The remaining outputs on the ES-8 (shifting blue and red LEDs) are LFOs from Silent Way running in Ableton. All notes are from the Moog Mother-32 sequencers, no outside MIDI was used (Ableton's clock was stopped). Reverb is from Ableton."
