L.L. Electronics Rozzbox One V2 Demo

Published on Mar 17, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The L.L. Electronics Rozzbox One V2 is a rare and quirky synth with 5 digital voices and vacuum tube filters. Demonstrating some patches with the Rozzbox as well as using its input that heavily distorts the Korg Volca Beats. Made to exploit its digital design, the Rozzbox is capable of a variety of unique effects, from intense oscillator aliasing to several forms of nonlinear digital distortion--perfect for gnarly glitch sounds and fizzy discontinuous soundscapes."

New Division 6 Dual Mini Sequencer Kit

via Division 6

"This kit gives you two handy little sequencers behind one Eurorack panel. Why would you need more than one sequencer? Why would you need mini sequencers?

More sequencers = more steps
Use one for playing notes and the other for transposing those notes
Can be used as a clock divider
Run in parallel for multiple CVs / triggers
Each one gives you the standard CV and gate out, plus an ACC out (Accent? Accessory?) Use it to open up a filter, enable a glide, trigger a drum, or whatever you can think of.

The two sequencers will run completely independently, or you can daisy-chain them using the XP IN/OUT jacks to create sequences of any length.

Each sequencer has its own internal clock to get you up and running in a hurry, but you can connect an external clock if you need greater control of tempo or want to sync with other devices.

The module stores your latest sequence even when the power has been removed.

While this kit is designed to give you a Eurorack module, the PCB patterns for the jacks also have holes that will accept Johnson/Cinch-style banana jacks. There are also standoff holes on the main PCB, so you can mount them behind your own custom panel.

This module has lots of LEDs and is very shiny, but only two of them are ever on at a time which keeps it from loading down your power supply.

Mutable Instruments Clouds

Published on Mar 17, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"Clouds Texture Synthesizer implements a whole new world of granular audio processing. Here we are signal processing a clean guitar with the Clouds. Clouds focuses on real-time audio manipulation, providing left and right input channels for full stereo effects processing. Incoming audio is saved into a buffer and is accessible through little pieces of the sound, called grains. These grains can be layered upon each other to create rich textures, similar to the water vapor in the sky coalescing into clouds. The density of the texture is manipulatable with the density control knob, and is independently controllable from the texture grain envelope, as well as the grain size and position in the audio buffer. The audio buffer can capture up to 8 seconds of audio (at the lowest audio quality settings), and up to 1 second of audio at the highest audio quality settings."

Lavender - Carved Intentions (Teaser #2)

Uploaded on Mar 16, 2017 Lavender Synth

An upcoming release composed entirely on the KORG Poly-800ii, via MATRIXSYNTH member, Lavender.

"One week away from the release of his new music video, Lavender unveils second teaser and builds expectancy with provocative black and white aestetics. 'Carved Intentions' is the first single from his critically acclaimed sophomore album 'Horizons Beneath the Surface' (Jacktone records, 2016). Full video out on: 03.24.17

For fans of: john carpenter, film noir, analogue synthesizers.

Album link:

Praise for 'Carved Intentions':

'Unforgettable three-minute-long portrait of Giallo horror containing nothing beyond a plaintive, warbling synthesizer backed by a careful bassline, does so much with so little it must be heard to be believed.'
- SF Weekly

“Easily compared to the complex spontaneity of early Pink Floyd and the uncanny atmospherics of John Carpenter.”

via this auction

"Teisco Synthesizer 60F / S-60F Vintage Analog Monophonic Synthesizer, which were manufactured in the early '80s under license from Arp Instruments.

The unit appears to be working reasonably well, I noticed the LFO FREQUENCY slider seems to be not responding and the frequency rate is uncontrollable, but otherwise all other sliders and knobs and keys are working fine to the best of my knowledge. There is quiet a bit of scratch noise on the sliders, plus the LED light on power switch seems to be not lighting up, which could also do with some servicing/adjustment.

Cosmetically the unit is in nice and reasonable condition as you can see."
