The Deadbug Buffer : A Eurorack Active Multi on a Homemade panel


Published on Mar 20, 2017 Synth Diy Guy

"Deadbug is a prototyping technique where you glue an IC upsidedown on a copper panel and make point to point connections for everything else. A Buffered Multi is a CV distributor that preserves an input voltage unaltered over three low impedance outputs. Very useful for sending critical CV to multiple destinations. Have Fun.

Special thanks to my teachers, Vinicius Brazil, and Ray Wilson (RIP)"

Make Noise 0-Coast Audulus Clone by Robert Syrett


Published on Mar 20, 2017 Bimini Road

"Just a tour of some sounds you can make with the 0-Coast clone that Audulus super user Robert Syrett made with the help and inspiration of @mschenkel

Download the patch for free here: http://forum.audulus.com/discussion/1..."

via RobertSyrett, the creator of the "RHS 0-Toast" patch:

"So I pieced together an audulus version of the 0-coast. Everything sounds 'kinda' like my actual 0-coast, but the aliased waveforms really give it a different character, especially in the upper registers (which I have denoted as the red zone on the pitch knob). Also, the 0-coast has some unspecified magic on the linear fm input which I am pretty sure has a vactrol in it and has a rather unique effect on the pitch. There are likely a dozen or so such small differences, but I set up some parallel patches and they sounded pretty close."

Moffenzeef Modular Muskrats Making Lo-Fi Drum Sounds


Published on Mar 20, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"Lo-fi digital drums from two Moffenzeef Modular Muskrats. A GMO provides some oscillator sounds and a Deviant provides randomized CV controls for all of the modules. Trigger patterns are provided by Noise Engineering’s Numeric and Zularic Repetitors.

The Moffenzeef Modular Muskrat is a highly configurable, 8-bit wavetable drum synth with 23 individual wavetables. The module features both manual and CV control over Wavetable selection, phase distortion and pitch, and its trigger input can function as an envelope follower and VCA as well. Engaging "Muskrat mode" will send a randomized signal at the internal clock rate into the phase accumulator, allowing for more volatile and distorted timbres. A great source for idiosyncratic and aggressive rhythms.

DRE4MTR4CK Eurorack Sequencer User Guide 3/3

Published on Apr 2, 2017 gstormelectro

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

G-Storm Electro announces the DRE4MTR4CK eurorack module. DRE4MTR4CK is a simple and intuitive chromatic pitch CV sequencer in a mere 12HP.

It has 4 independent, externally clocked tracks with 4 steps each. Each track sends pitch CV to one of your VCO modules. With external clocking, you decide if timing is slow and dreamy, bouncy and up-tempo, or all out fury going into audio rates.

Unused clock inputs are multiples from input 1. Clocking can be interrupted for a track by inserting a floating patchcord. Manually trigger a track step using the TRIG buttons. Intuitively build evolving chords or poly-rhythmic note progressions.

Simple pattern modes and Octave transpose for each track provide seemingly endless note progression. Mix things up with Step reset and track data Rotate to re-circulate CVs among your VCOs. 16 memories are provided for program note data storage. Recall of programs during performance provides changes in melodic or chord structures on-the-fly.

DRE4MTR4CK will be all hand built in limited quantities. Modules will be available soon on Reverb. Full specs will be published on my blog - see below.. Stay tuned for video 3/3 which will be more of a user guide.

The DRE4MTR4CK module has no affiliation with any persons with similar name."

"Novation Circuit / Elektron Monomachine / Novation Bass Station II / Hall of Fame / Flashback x4 Delay - live melodic house, trance, techno:

Hi folks,

Just posting newest live hardware jam. This piece has elements of House, Techno, Trance and like many of my dance themed tunes, I'm really not sure exactly what genre to place it in (but does it matter?) Fusions are fun.

I played a show on March 11th and I wanted to add one more up beat tune to the set but for nearly the entire month leading up to the gig (since the last gig), I had zero ideas. That was until 2 days before the performance when this just spontaneously sort of came together very quickly.

This particular video is not the best arrangement job I did with it. As I got through the day, I tightened up my arrangement even more with better dynamics and tension and release but when this was really my last chance to record this for a while so I documented it while I could.

I hope you all like it and if you do, please click that thumb up icon and subscribe. There's always more coming.

Latest News from Behringer & A Response From The Curtis Family


The next chapter in Behringer synth development is in. We already know Uli Behringer announced plans to re-create classic synths. Behringer will be making new innovative synths as well, and we now have some numbers:

“We have 4 synthesizer development teams simultaneously working on 20 synths, drum machines etc..

We’ll be creating both innovative new synths as well as reviving classics.

We’re all in and the teams are on fire.'"

On reproducing vintage chips for the classics:

"We just received the first batch of our 3340 VCO chip.

It is a 100% exact replica of the Curtis CEM3340 which even includes the 40 year old, 8 micron manufacturing process. It was a difficult and expensive undertaking but we are very pleased with the result as this VCO is considered one of the best sounding oscillators.

We are continuing to invest in reviving other legacy Curtis and SSM semiconductors which will allow us to bring back classic synths - all in the most authentic way. We have also reissued the 3320 filter chip which should be arriving in a few months.

Uli"

It's worth noting the Curtis CEM 3340 has already been re-introduced by OnChip Systems, formerly Curtis Electromusic, and is currently available for makers. Behringer's 3340 appears to bypass Curtis Electromusic and is being manufactured by Behringer (via Coolaudio) directly. SSM chips and the CEM 3320, however, are not yet available. Although the chips will obviously be re-issued for use in Behringer synths, it does appear that some if not all may become available to the Synth DIY community as well. More info on that further below, but first a response on the re-creation of Curtis chips from the Curtis family:

"Many of you who are active on synth forums have recently contacted us regarding another company's claim of producing VCO chips that are the equivalent to the CEM3340 that was used in many legendary synthesizers.

To avoid any confusion, please know that there is only one manufacturer of the authentic CEM3340 designed by my late husband, Doug Curtis. Any claims, use of this product designation, and use of the name Curtis Electromusic by other companies are made without permission from OnChip Systems (our current company name) or the Curtis Family.

As much as Doug would be humbled and so very happy about the legacy his products enjoy, we can assure you that as a person of the highest integrity he would be deeply saddened by the attempt of others to trade on his name and to make unsubstantiated claims of equivalency to his original inventions.

In his loving memory and gratitude for the community of musicians and synthesizer enthusiasts, Doug's family is committed to making his authentic designs available as demand presents itself. Thank you for your continued support of Doug's analog synthesizer legacy.

Mary Curtis and our daughters, Ashley and Julia"

It's worth noting that many Dave Smith Instruments synths use Curtis chips and do so with permission from the Curtis family. Dave Smith was friends with Doug Curtis and has been buying parts from OnChip for over 15 years. OnChip was Doug Curtis' company and is now his wife Mary Curtis's company. These chips were used in the Evolver line, the Prophet '08, MoPho line, and the Prophet 12. The Pro 2, Prophet-6, and OB-6 use discrete designs.

The following is from another thread from Uli in German, translated into Googlish:

"Something clearer. Patent rights are generally 20 years, whereby the technology is freely available for everyone. This allows the inventor, on the one hand, to harvest the fruits of his invention, but also to ensure that no monopoly arises and, after the expiry of the protection, everyone has free access to the technology - without a bad conscience.

In the case of the Curtis or SSM chips, the patent rights of these 40-year-old components have run out for a long time and everyone can reproduce them today. Why this no longer companies do is simply because the mask costs are very high (6-digit USD range per chip) and on the other hand the minimum edition is about 300,000 - 500,000 pieces.

Curtis has registered the name rights for Curtis and CEM, but on the number 3340 etc. there is no protection. Therefore, there are other vendors who have revived these old chips:

Http://ericasynths.lv/en/shop/diy/diy-a ... er-as3320 /

Or look at how many manufacturers. The 074 Opamp.

Why are these 40 year old chips being rebuilt? Anyone who once belonged to an old Oberheim OB-Xa or a Prophet 5 will agree with me that the sounds of these Curtis and SSM chips are absolutely unsurpassed in their sound qualities. This specific sound is not easy to replicate with discrete technology and since we have an immense passion for analog synthesizers and believe that customers will appreciate these components, we are taking the financial risk of reviving these chips. Coolaudio has just produced the 3340 VCO successfully and the 3320 filter chip is now also under development - further building blocks will follow.

For more than ten years, the company http://www.coolaudio.com, which is affiliated with us, has specialized in restoring expired components. On the one hand the company produces the coveted BBD chips from the Panasonic times, but also VCA's, OTA's, Optocoupler, etc.

Our intention is to focus on the old Curtis and SSM chips, as we want to use them in our future synthesizers. At the same time, Coolaudio will also offer them for sale, which allows other competitors to build analog instruments as well as help people repair old synths. Many of the Coolaudio chips are already used today by our competitors and we are happy if we can make a contribution to the fact that these analogue components are made of music.

I personally consider VA for eyewash because this is ultimately digital technology. No digital synthesizer will ever be able to reproduce the 'unpredictability' and 'inaccuracy' of an analog synthesizer - no matter how much marketing is operated. Anyone who listens to analogue and digital synthesizers in comparison can easily find out. That is exactly why we will be specializing in analogue synths.

Perhaps our desire for analogue technology is simply that we humans are knitted by themselves analogously and the emotions associated with it determine our existence.

Greeting

Uli"

Many other leading manufacturers are using Coolaudio chips and by using these parts obviously have no concerns with cloning in general and with using our chips in their products.

If our competitors are not concerned then why should customers be?

Published on Aug 2, 2016 20 Synthesizer

"This video is from the milling process of the 20 synthesizers main body. The entire instrument casing is milled from massive aluminium."



via 20's Axel Harmann

"It is a Sunday, and I am here at Design Box, finishing work on the first silver 20, that we have been building in the past few weeks. No matter, what you think about this project, the synth itself, or me doing something like this as a designer in this - our niche of the music-market; - I am really proud of how this machine is sitting in front of my camera lens right in this moment. Together with our genius mechanical engineer, Stephan Gries, we could overcome all the obstacles, that a project like this has in stock. I have to thank him a lot, but also all the people, that helped on the way - the company, that milled the massive casing out of the raw aluminium, the Waldorf people, and especially Stephan Stenzel, who let me have their soundengine, Hermann Gier and his team at SPL, for designing their highend op-amp especially for the 20, and last but not least, my friends from Studiologic around Marco Ragni, down in Recanati / Italy, for modifying the frontpanel of their sledge synthesizer, so it feels right for a high-end machine like this - and producing this special all back TP8 keybed for the 20. This beauty will make its way over to the US tomorrow - and I wish it a good journey, and its future owner a lot of delighted moments with it!"
