PPG PRK ROM Based Model Processor Keyboard

via this auction

"This is a very rare PPG PRK. It has not been used for many years and I have no way of testing if it is still working so you should assume it is not.

It is the ROM based model with classic samples from the Waveterm Library stored in ROM for fast loading and without the need for Waveterm.

'The PPG PRK was created for a number of reasons; firstly many PPG owners wanted to have velocity sensitivity when using their PPG synths - the PPG PRK offers this.
Also the 'closer-to-piano-feeling' was something that musicians wanted at this time - the PPG PRK offers this as well.

The PPG PRK also offered optional voice boards to be inserted into the unit.
This does not mean that the PPG PRK itself can create any sounds - but by inserting the optional sound cards you could send the information on these to the PPG Wave 2.2, PPG Wave 2.3 or PPG EVU.'"

U-he Repro-1 vs Pro-One

Don't miss the under the hood section on the Repro-1 for custom tweaks at 26:02. Note the P5 modes.

"A look at the fabulous U-he Repro-1 alongside an original Sequential Circuits Pro-One.

The similarities are simply stunning. I take a look at the oscillators, followed by the filters then make a couple of useable sounds and add a sequence.

Finally I look at the more complex challenges for a soft synth - FM with oscillator sync.

I think you'll agree the Repro-1 is outstanding on all fronts.

I've also added a short overview of the Jaws wave shaper, which can totally transform the sound. a little Repro Yazoo thrown in for fun..

MAM MB33 Retro Acid FM mods

Published on Mar 21, 2017

"MAM MB33 Retro with Acid FM mods: This video shows the filter FM mod modulating the filter cutoff at audio frequencies using the internal square and sawtooth VCO waveforms as FM sources. It also demonstrates the Filter Lock mod that holds the filter and VCA open with no envelope, the resonance boost, and the overdrive mod.
The MB33 retro seems to be designed to slightly distort the output stage at full volume, much like the TB303 did. The Drive mod boosts this distortion savagely for some grungy acid techno sounds."

"Featuring Talib Kweli, Omar Souleyman, Mykki Blanco, BEARCAT, Pie Face Girls, MIT Open Doc Lab, NEW INC, Found Sound Nation, and Goldsmiths

The independent, annual, four-day festival will take place in
Durham, North Carolina from May 18-21, 2017.
This year marks its 11th iteration honoring the spirit of inventor Bob Moog.

$249 for 3-Day General Admission and $499 for 3-Day VIP

All prices exclusive of applicable fees.

March 21, 2017 - Moogfest will dedicate its main stage on opening night to exploring how creative technology tools and protest music can be used as instruments for change. This Protest stage will be led by local and international artists Talib Kweli, Omar Souleyman, Mykki Blanco, BEARCAT and Pie Face Girls, MIT Open Doc Lab, NEW INC, and app developers at Goldsmiths University. The diverse Protest stage program will include performances, talks, and participatory technology experiments. Moogfest invites all presenters and attendees to explore sonic resistance and emerging technology tools for counteraction while celebrating radical inclusivity and intersectionality. New technologies for educating, organizing, and art-making echo Moogfest’s rallying cry: Synthesize Love.

Protest comes in many forms, and no single genre can contain the musicians participating in Thursday’s program. Talib Kweli is a renowned recording artist, entrepreneur, and social activist who uses hip hop to educate, inspire and agitate. He is well known for his work combating racial stereotypes, the prison-industrial complex, and police brutality. Syrian artist-activist Omar Souleyman represents culturally diverse musical traditions that include Kurdish, Ashuris, Arabic, Turkish and Iraqi communities. Fearless noise rap poet and performance artist Mykki Blanco was raised in Raleigh, N.C., but has traveled the globe from art-world stomping grounds in New York to his current home in Los Angeles, spitting subversive rhymes on race and LGBT issues. British DJ/Producer BEARCAT makes politically-charged bass-heavy mixes and represents Discwoman, an esteemed collective showcasing cis women, trans women and genderqueer talent in electronic music. Raleigh-based band Pie Face Girls uses defiant punk music to promote a DIY ethos and attack issues like North Carolina’s HB2. Music is one of the oldest forms of protest, but each of these artists makes their causes urgent anew with the music and community they build.

Intermixed with the musical performances, technologists participating in the Moogfest Protest stage program will present recent and developing projects that empower and facilitate social action. Gan Golan and Ron Morrison of NEW INC present their countersurveillance armor for citizens, The Argus Project, a head-to-toe mobile suit embedded with cameras that allows the wearer and its audience of remote viewers to monitor and record environmental behaviour. Taeyoon Choi, also of NEW INC, presents a protest sign-making workshop, exploring signs as a poetic medium for social engagement in an inclusive space that promotes learning from people with differing views and priorities. Halsey Burgund of MIT Open Doc Lab and Joe Zobkiw present the Land Marking app, which captures the sounds of social movements around the world. During the festival, attendees are invited to contribute their voices or listen to the location-based mix of music and voices contributed by previous participants. Vivan Thi Tang, a postgraduate in the Graduate Entrepreneur program at Goldsmiths University in London, created a customized beta of her irlbb app for Moogfest 2017, that presents a unique opportunity for participants to connect with potential collaborators.

Testing the SlingerLand Drum synth

Published on Mar 21, 2017 Todd Murray

"This is basically a Roland TR-909 drum machining clone. If you want one, you can either buy a used one, or build one yourself. To build one, you need to obtain the printed circuit boards from, then source the components and then solder them in place. You may or may not have issues though. In my case, they high Tom is wonky due to the selection of capacitor types, and a potentiometer (the dial), which is causing feedback through the circuit. But for the most part, it sounds decent enough."

The R*S version adds a 4th stage that can be dialed in using the "+1" knob, so that 3 to 4 levels of folding can be reached, allowing more folds and additional timbres. This demo shows some uses - sound sources are a Serge DSG mk2 and a Serge NTO.

"Using the QU-Bit chords quad envelope Rhythm and Wave polyphonic sampler for main sound. The Varigate 8 is being used for extra cv to movie around the pitch on the wave sampler. All of the audio is being put thru the Intellijel Linix and being gated by maths and quad Qu-Bit envelope a bit of compression in the end by the WMD MSCL stereo compressor.

Triggering the Qu-Bit Wave sampler with the Qu-Bit Rhythm for drums, the Qu-Bit Chord adds chords over the drums. The Varigate 8 is being used for extra cv to movie around the pitch on the wave sampler. All of the audio is being put thru the Intellijel Linix and being gated by maths and Qu-Bit Contour quad envelope. Some compression is added by the WMD MSCL stereo compressor.

Rhythm, from Qu-Bit Electronix, is a four channel trigger sequencer with built in rhythmic patterns. Each of the four channels have a rhythmic variation knob and corresponding CV input, to offset or change the rhythm out of that channel. The four channels each have their own outputs as well as mute buttons, for ease of mixing. There are four genre banks, each with twelve patterns, making a total of 48 grooves, not including the variation. Both the Genre and Pattern parameters can be voltage controlled. Rhythm makes it extremely easy to match tempos to a DAW, having a BPM read out of the internal clock (controlled by the large center knob), although one is not slaved to this. It also has a Clock In, in case it needs to be something other than a master clock. Reset and play buttons add some performative features for live adjustments.

The Qu-Bit Wave is a high-quality 4-channel sample playback module. Offering four channels of one-shot playback from SD card, the Wave even features varispeed / pitch control for each channel.

Dusty Revelator | Eurorack & OP-1

Published on Mar 21, 2017 Dusty Patches

"Patch notes:
Ornament & Crime in Automatonnetz mode sends voltage to four sound sources: PIttsburgh Waveforms, Braids, Clouds, and Disting in waveshaping VCO mode. The BSP sends triggers and CV to change the root note of the triad.

Waveforms is performing root note duty and is sent to Ripples. dlADSR generates an envelope patched to Gain in Ripples. Braids and Disting are sent to the Optomix and modulated by Peaks in bouncing ball envelope mode.

Braids is in WMAP mode and has a slow LFO, attenuated by ModDemix, patched to Color. Disting is in wavefolding VCO mode is similarly patched.

Clouds is in pitchshift/timestretch mode. An envelope from dlADSR, attenuated by ModDemix, is patched to Texture which behaves kinda like an LPG. I'm wiggling the Position, Size, Density, and Texture to create different sounds.

BitBox is loaded with vintage drum machine samples (Oberheim DMX) and sent to Analogue Solutions SY02 Filter for crunchifying.

Mixing and audio output is done with Happy Nerding 3xMIA and PIttsburgh Mix Mult.

Audio is routed into the OP-1 for processing with the CWO effect. There are some audio loops triggered from the tape as well."
