KORG Introduces the KRONOS LS

KRONOS LS - Strike the Perfect Balance

Published on Mar 28, 2017 Korg

"With a newly-designed light touch keyboard for effortless playability, KRONOS LS lets you take a full-sized keyboard - and the power of KRONOS - anywhere.

Packed with nine versatile sound engines, up to 16 simultaneous effects, 16-part Combinations and so much more, KRONOS is KORG’s most powerful synthesizer ever. To further unlock KRONOS’ potential, KORG introduces a new light-touch 88-key model for a new level of playability - and portability."

"New light-touch keyboard for effortless, nimble playing

KORG’s all-new light-touch keyboard makes it easy to play anything from rapid organ licks to synth phrases to glissandi. The mechanism of the keyboard itself has been redesigned so that the velocity is easier to control than on existing light-touch keyboards, even when playing complex chords or difficult phrases. The box-shaped keys share their look with KORG’s premium RH3 action, while providing the faster playing feel of a synth keyboard. Since the keyboard is semi-weighted, it’s also perfect for playing piano and electric piano in any style.

6.3 kg/14 lbs. lighter than KRONOS2-88 for increased portability

The new keyboard makes the instrument markedly lighter than KRONOS2-88 with KORG’s RH3 action, making transport and setup much simpler. At under 19 kg/40 lbs., bringing a full 88-note KRONOS to a show just became more convenient.

New OS v3.1 includes new Quick Layer/Split functions

Along with its dynamic new keyboard, KRONOS LS features the latest KRONOS OS - v3.1 - which puts Quick Layer and Quick Split functions right at users’ fingertips. Effortlessly create layers such as piano and strings, or splits such as electric piano and bass, effortlessly. Numerous additional OS refinements have also been made to further ensure stability and a stress-free performance environment.

A new look to complement its new feel

With its luxurious dark umber aluminum body and beautifully crafted sunburst wood side panels, KRONOS LS is designed to present as beautifully as it plays. KRONOS LS offers an elegant look that’s perfect for home, stage, and studio."

Kawai SX-240 with full MIDI CC!

Published on Mar 25, 2017 Sean Ober

"Thanks to the fine folks at, this minty Kawai SX-240 now responds to MIDI CC. Burned a couple new firmware EPROMs, removed about 8 screws, swapped the chips and done! Such an easy, rewarding mod.

Early stages of this available firmware but damn-near complete... hat's off to This is one of only a few SX-240's in the world, this powerful ;o) Shoot, only about 1000 of these boards might have been made and many, many of those died due to battery leaks. Talk about a rare bird.

I also would like to thank Jordan from Cuff Lynx for selling me this bad boy! Thanks and Save The Wave... SynthWave that is!!!"

Tiptop Audio Circadian Rhythm

Published on Mar 28, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The Tiptop Circadian Rhythm is triggering the ALM Dinky's Taiko, Audio Damage Boomtschak, SSF Entity, and Mannequins Just Friends for drums. The bass and melodies are sequenced by the Malekko Varigate 8 which is clocked by the Circadian. The Make Noise DPO and Verbos Complex Oscillator are used for those sounds. All is being mixed in the Intellijel Linix and then routed to the Make Noise Erbe Verb.

The Tiptop Audio ‘Circadian Rhythms’ is a complex grid sequencer module moving modular synthesizer technology another step forward by gluing all the pieces of a system together. Each module or voice can now be programmed to play straight from an intelligent, eight-channel, 512-step master trigger sequencer made for composers looking to make music on the modular. Building on the sequencing concept of step programing, multi-channel patterns of musical phrases can be repeated, looped, chained, muted and manipulated on the fly in real-time, and most importantly, all of this is done through a simple, clearly labeled interface. Using an array of multicolor illuminated buttons and innovative grid views the Circadian Rhythms provides a highly functional live performance sequencer with a beautiful glowing appearance of the programmed music that will look amazing on stage for both performer and crowd. As a master controller, the heart of the modular synthesizer, Circadian Rhythms generates high precision clock and reset signals for all the other sequencers and devices in the system to align with and can also act as a high precision bridge for DAW synchronization.

Radikal Technologies RT-311 Swarm Oscillator Official Released

We've seen the demos. We now have the official press release:

[image: "The front panel has all input and output jacks at the lower end of the panel. That keeps the knobs free from cables."]

"Radikal Technologies releases radical Eurorack-compatible oscillator module with a DSP-driven difference

MÜNCHEN, GERMANY: having turned heads, opened ears, and blown musical minds with a successful showcase at The 2017 NAMM Show, January 19-22 in Anaheim, California, high-quality synthesizer developer Radikal Technologies is proud to announce availability of its RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR — an advanced DSP-driven Eurorack-compatible oscillator module that, as implied by name, goes far beyond the realms of standard oscillator fare, firstly thanks to two oscillators that can both build swarms of (up to eight) oscillator ‘clones’ capable of being pitched in musical intervals, chords, clusters, or fat detunes, dutifully backed by having all parameter settings saveable as interpolatable snapshots, enabling even more radical results — as of March 28...

A dictionary definition of swarm typically reads: a large number of things... or oscillators, in the case of Radikal Technologies’ radical RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR, which, when switched to its highest SWARM setting, sees a maximum of 16 oscillator ‘clones’ running simultaneously. Something that stands out from the sound of the (ever-expanding Eurorack modular) crowd — to (partially) paraphrase the early-Eighties British breakthrough hit from synth-pop pioneers The Human League (themselves no strangers to the small-format modular system popularised by fellow German developers Doepfer Musikelektronik) — and surely something to behold? But building swarms of oscillator clones using both (OSCILLATOR 1 and OSCILLATOR 2) banks’ specialised set of TUNE, OCTAVES, DENSITY, SPREAD, and DETUNE controls to create pitched musical intervals, chords, clusters, or fat detunes does not necessarily mean that all 16 of those clones have to sound simultaneously.

Switched into (its default startup) Manual-Mode of operation, the RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR can function much like any other Eurorack-compatible all-analogue oscillator out there with OSCILLATOR 1 and OSCILLATOR 2 respectively appearing at the two (OUT 1 and OUT 2) outputs as sound sources for further manipulation elsewhere — using Radikal Technologies’ own RT-451 DUAL MULTIMODE FILTER module, for instance. In this scenario, the sound of the RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR module matches exactly what would be expected from the potentiometer-controlled parameter positions on its 32 HP (Horizontal Pitch) sized front panel; putting yet more controls at adventurous users’ fingertips, both banks of oscillators feature WAVE controls for smooth transitions between waveforms and TLM (Timelinearity Modulation), a variation of pulse-width modulation — known from Radikal Technologies’ SPECTRALIS 2 ANALOG SYNTHESIZER/ BEATMATRIX/FILTERBANK desktop hybrid — that can be applied to all waveforms, while exponential FM (Frequency Modulation) and linear FM modulation or PM (Phase Modulation) are also available alongside oscillator synchronisation. Pitch is, of course, controlled by the (calibrated) 1V/OCT input (which can be quantised so that only pitches of a certain tone sequence or scale are output).

Other operational modes make more radical results really shine through, though. Switching Snapshot-Mode into play permits the RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR to store up to eight memory setups, each with eight snapshots, saving all oscillator settings and memorising them even after whatever Eurorack small-format modular synth system is playing host to the module has been powered down! Such snapshots are assigned to one of eight positions accessible via the ‘big knob’ dominating the RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR’s front panel. Put it into Interpolator-Mode and everything (literally) revolves around the cyclic traversal of those snapshots, smoothly crossfading from one to the next with transitions taken care of via voltage control, an internal LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator), or the big knob itself — either way, the surrounding eight LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) illuminate accordingly in user-chosen colours, helpfully highlighting which snapshot is playing at any given time.

To make room for an RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR in any Eurorack small-format modular system means making more sound colours available to the sophisticated synthesist... Radikal by name, radical by nature, now a swarm of oscillators need not take up too much valuable rack space, so why not add one (or more) modules to your setup today to start putting Radikal Technologies’ latest DSP-driven design through its unique-sounding paces?

Now shipping, the RT-311 SWARM OSCILLATOR is available for purchase from Radikal Technologies stockists at an MSRP of €598.00 EUR (in Europe) and $659.00 USD (in the US).

SDS_VCO+Reflex LiveLoop Jammin'

Published on Mar 28, 2017 freshnelly

"In testing and calibrating the SDS VCO's before they fly out the door, sometimes I get all carried away!

This demonstrates the SDS_VCO's MIDI output and what it does as a CV/G/T to MIDI Notes converter.

Also sequencing a PlayFX gate is dabbled with while the Reflex is in Echo mode adding "stereoization" to the VCO's mono output.

Occasionally the MI frames is run to change the root of the scale and the CV1+CV2 on the ModEm-1 Sequencer module."

Behringer Model D Circuit Board & New Product Coming to SUPERBOOTH17

"We have just received the first PCB (Print Circuit Board) and if all goes well, we should have a working prototype ready by next week.

As you can see it is quite a dense layout as squeezing a complete Model D design into a Eurorack format is not an easy task.

Please keep in mind that we are still many months away from a shipment date. A typical design cycle requires around 1-2 board spins, all depending on the audio performance as well as the subsequent compliance testing which includes EMC and safety.

Since people have shown interest, we will happily share with you the design milestones of this synthesizer, so you get a better understanding how an electronic product is engineered."

And regarding a new product coming to SUPERBOOTH17:

"We have decided last minute to attend SuperBooth in Berlin for a very exciting new product announcement.

Hopefully we'll be lucky to get some space and we're looking forward to seeing you there.

MFB Introduces New NANOWERG PRO Eurorack Module

* Eurorack version of the successful NANOZWERG Synth
* analogue VCO with four waveforms
* Suboscillator with three intervalls
* analogue 12 dB Multimodefilter
* LFO with „One Shot“-function
* CV Inputs, Midi CC controllable
* MIDI- and CV/Gate-Interface
* new M-Bus connection for faster workflow
* MSRP: 250,- Euro

The NANOZWERG PRO Module is complete monophonic analogue synthesizer unit within a very compact size.

With its VCO, Suboscillator and 12 dB Multimodefilter the synth voice is able to create various sounds from bass- and sequence- to electro-, effect- and drone styles. Furthermore you can add white NOISE and external signals to create more complex sounds or just for use as filterbox.

An overview about the features of the NANOZWERG Pro Module:
The VCO creates the waveforms Triangle, Sawtooth, Square and Pulse. The foot scale (octave range) goes from 32' to 4' and the fine tuning around +/-6 semitones. For fatten the sound a Suboscillator can be switched to three different intervalls or White Noise alternatively. A Mixer knob blends VCO waves into Sub/White Noise. A Glide effect is provided too.

The 12-dB-State-Variable-Multimodefilter owns LOWPASS, BANDPASS, HIGHPASS and NOTCH and its CUTOFF can be controlled manually, by LFO or ADSR. The RESONANCE allows selfoscillation and KEYFOLLOW spreads the filter frequency depending on the note.

The LFO offers four waveforms including SAMPLE&HOLD and ONE SHOT who works as a envelope - after a gate impulse one cycle of the selected waveform is generated. An innovation is - the first three waveforms can be morphed to each other. Beside Filter CUTOFF, PITCH and PULSEWIDTH of the VCO can be adressed by the LFO.
The first ADSR envelope controls the CUTOFF with negative or positive slope, the second ADSR controls the VCAs volume.

Almost every parameter can be controlled via CV, the envelopes and LFO have CV outputs. An external in feed the VCF alternative with other soundsources. MIDI IN allows to control the module with your DAW or other MIDI gear.
The NANOZWERG PRO recieves NOTE ON, PITCH WHEEL (+/- 1 halftone) and MIDI CC. Alternative the faster M-BUS connection offers the same features.

The Module has a width of 24 HP = 121 mm."

Kammerl Beat-Repeat Effect for Mutable Instrument's Clouds


"This is an alternative firmware for Mutable Instruments Clouds which enables real-time slicing / beat-repeat features ported from the Kammerl Kaske VST plugin suite.

Note: The original four modes of the official firmware are still present and have not been modified. This firmware simply adds a fifth mode to your Clouds module with new real-time beat and sound manipulation features.

Kammerl Beat-Repeat mode

Note: This mode requires a clock signal plugged into the Trigger input. Without a clock signal, it holds the most recent slice (or outputs silence if no clock signal has been previously provided).

The Kammerl Beat-Repeat mode analyzes the incoming clock signal to enable real-time slicing of the audio input. Each slice can be played back with different loop, pitch and distortion settings.
