Elektron Analog RTYM

Published on Mar 18, 2017 100 Things I Do

"I have followed what Elektron do from the early days of the SID Station but, until now never played any of their instruments. I have been looking for a drum sound creation machine also for a long time, the software ones never seem to work for me very well and most hardware seem to do a very limited sound palette and be directed towards dance. After hours of research and watching many of Cookoo's awesome videos I decided on the RTYM.

I have had this box for under a week, many people talk about it being difficult to learn the Elektron work flow so In this clip and thought I would share my current progress. The first night with the box was a little hard but after that I discovered that most features I wanted to use I could figure out without reading the manual. I mostly use modified preset sounds but in future I will be more focused on sound creation. Hope you enjoy. Analog Keys hopefully in next weeks Video!"

Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas

via Control

"Dynamically generated wavetable oscillator with multiple orthogonal functions.

Cursus Iteritas is an oscillator that works from a dynamically generated wavetable. It gives the user spectral-like controls over three different modes based on different conceptualizations of frequency: Fourier, which uses sine waves; Daubechies, using wavelets, and Walsh mode, using the Walsh transform. Cursus Iteritas parametrizes a wide variety of sounds, but because the sounds are all based off of orthogonal functions, it has a musical tone structure and can produce an extremely wide variety of harmonic sounds.

Width: 10HP
Max Depth: 38mm
Power: 50mA@ +12V , 5mA@ -12V , 0mA@ +5V"

You can find a few videos featuring the Cursus Iteritas here.

Crumar Orchestrator Synthesizer SN 01352

via this auction

"This instrument has been recently serviced at the renowned Perfect Circuit in Burbank, CA. This fully analog vintage synthesizer is in 100% fully functional order. Every key in every setting routed to every output performs impeccably. There is no noise or crackle from any slider. The VCF is lush and expressive. The vibrato, although very subtle, adds a nice warble. This is a very lovely vintage synth capable of shimmering tones and can also get gnarly. Very cool split keyboard assignment options and fully mixable voices."

Roland V-Synth XT versus Roland D50 (VariOS VC-1 V-Card)

Published on Mar 18, 2017 Woody Piano Shack

"One of my Canadian viewers, Atreyu, contacted me and suggested we collaborate on a comparison of the Roland V-Synth XT with VC-1 virtual Roland D-50 card against my real D50 synthesizer from 1988. This sounded itneresting and this video is the result of that collaboration. You will hear audio captured on the D50 followed by the XT which was playing the midi-file that I recorded whilst I was playing the D50. The Roland VC1 V-Card can be used with Roland V-Synth and Roland VariOS sound expansion module. Another chance to enjoy the amazing sounds of the D50 pads and famous presets such as Fantasia, Soundtrack and Digital Native Dance."
