Korg DSS-1 sound demo with eventide space

Published on Apr 10, 2017 MIDERA

"Just enjoyed the sound I made (I can't save any of my patches) - so I thought I'd make a video of it. This is such a strange synthesizer. Sounds amazing though, being able to create your own waveforms is very interesting (albeit - usually ends in bad sounds). This is a waveform I made using the drawing feature.

Eventide Space was used for reverb"

Strumming Pyramids: Euclidean chord patterns with the Squarp Pyramid

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Olivier Ozoux

"Exploring some of the interesting features of the new PyraOS 1.9 beta.

Now that the Euclidean Mode can accept chords, and with the new Master Transpose track, we can create rhythm guitar style strumming patterns. Add a few Midi FX for variations, and we have the Strumming Pyramids!"

Wifi MIDI for Your Modular from SDS Digital

WiFiMIDI module prototype demo1

Published on Apr 10, 2017 freshnelly

"This is the old prototype doing a note derived clock using a pair of SDS_VCO's and a Reflex in delay (Echo mode) with PlayFX reverse on "F" Note on the iPhone.
The Clock is feeding to a MI Frames module, and the MIDI output jack (WiFi + module MIDI) is feeding out of the bottom left jack.(T)
Notes and their velocities are being sent from the other 8 jacks, but only 2 are patched in here
Guess I should put together a proper WiFiMIDI, just so busy these days!"

277r Delay with CV Filtering

Published on Apr 10, 2017 djangosfire

"Exploring the 277r Buchla format digital delay.

A casual walk through and demo of the 277r using CV to control the delay rate AND a LPG to tame the crunchy tone of the 277r.


Audio into 277r, output into 292e LPG, out to mixer.

I use a 256r dual cv processor to send CV to the 277r AND the 292e LPG.

Thank you - Djangosfire

PS - in the vid I keep saying 1/2t inputs.... in fact I meant 'outputs' :)"

Pioneer DJ Toraiz AS-1 Dave Smith Bass Synth

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

MATRIXSYNTH members get a %10 discount at Perfect Circuit Audio!

"Demoing the sequencer, arpeggiator, two different sounds and the effects on the Toraiz AS-1 mono synth from Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith.

The Toraiz AS-1, from Pioneer DJ in collaboration with Dave Smith, is a phat sounding monophonic synthesizer that brings new creative worlds into the studio. It contains the same filter present in Dave Smith's legendary Prophet-6, as well as continuously variable triangle, sawtooth, and pulse waveshapes for extreme timbral manipulation. Even with the fully analog signal path, there is a digital brain that controls all the parameters, allowing one to save 495 different presets for quick recall of one's favorite sounds. Not only are the filters taken from the Prophet-6. The FX bank is also included in the AS-1, which provides a BB Delay, Distortion, Ring Mod, Chorus and Maestro Phaser.

Double Knot and Cutting Room Floor

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

MATRIXSYNTH members get a %10 discount at Perfect Circuit Audio!

"Lorre-Mill Double Knot sending stereo out to two Recovery Cutting Room Floor Delay/Reverbs for extreme stereo sounds.

The most original and versatile release from Recovery Effects to date. Unlike any effect you’ve heard before, it offers mountains of wild modulation, delay, freeze and stutter. Anything from light lo-fi chorus to broken-tape-deck sounds can be achieved with this unique pedal. Melt, then freeze tones in place, or use it as a gritty echo or faux reverb.

Available here:

The Double Knot is a 100% analog desktop modular synthesizer and sequencer with a large amount of indeterministic and random possibilities. The Double Knot's stereo, dual voice architecture allows it to be used to generate a wide variety of abstract rhythms from the interplay of its two sequencers, and both oscillators can be used to intermodulate at both CV and audio-rate frequencies. A great way to generate minimal and pointillistic grooves.

Vintage Sequential Circuits Prelude Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Up for purchase is this vintage Sequential Circuits Prelude polyphonic analog synthesizer that is in excellent condition. There is some minor wear to the finish but this keyboard really looks nice overall. Two of the slider tip inserts were missing, so I made some out of painted paper, and now they blend in with the rest. The synth was recently cleaned and serviced: all keys were cleaned, sliders were cleaned and lubricated(several have a little firmer movement than the others, but they move freely), switches and terminals were cleaned. Unit was tested and is fully functional and plays great! Instruments can be combined to make a fuller sound. There are a pair of pop-up legs on the rear of the bottom to raise the back higher."

Published on Apr 10, 2017 once upon a synth

"In this tutorial I go over the new firmware update 1.3 for the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 synth. This updates adds a new feature allowing you to use the sequencer in paraphonic mode. Previously you were only able to sequence single notes but now you can sequence chords. We'll go over how to do a firmware update first and then I'll do a quick demo of how to use the new sequencer feature.

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

Rolling out some new patches for the Juno-1/2 available for download on my blog. A full bank of patches including the sounds from Demo #1. In this video I have selected a few of my personal favorites: bass, arpeggios, and soundscapes/pads. There are copious amounts of Big Sky reverb, a couple of sounds use the Timefactor delay. Basses don't usually need anything. Sounds were programmed using the indispensable Stereoping synth controller, also used briefly in this demo. Recorded direct through a Mackie 802-VLZ mixer to a Tascam DR-05.

RSF Kobol Xpander Oscillator Modulation

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Meta Function

"In this video, Meta Function demonstrate oscillator modulation on a RSF Kobol Xpander I & II.

The Kobol features continuous morphing of the oscillators waveshapes. Oscillator one is modulated via a triangle LFO, with oscillator two modulated via the same LFO but with a S&H waveshape. The Kobol's filter is a SSM2040, designed by Dave Rossum of E-mu Systems and used in the first 2 versions of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. The Kobol was used heavily on early Depeche Mode tracks and by the late great and dearly missed Fad Gadget.

Sequenced via a Sequentix Cirklon.

Audio recorded via Calrec S2 console and SSL convertors. All dry, no FX, EQ or compression. The only post production performed was normalization.

Watch at 1080p with good quality audio monitoring for the best experience.

Meta Function developed the free Max For Live synthesizer, The Mono Junction in partnership with Featuring a novel NegSawPW waveshape, extended pulse width modulation sounds are easily created.

"A brief introduction to the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator PO-32 drum machine."

Teenage Engineering PO-32 Tonic Synth Review

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Ask.Audio

"Sonically, PO-32’s onboard sounds are cool: heavy and punchy with a distinct chiptune character to them. Being able to design new sounds with Microtonic and fire them across does really open up the possibilities here, and as such it’s certainly the most flexible Pocket Operator to date. You can still sync it with other models in the series too of course, and it retains the fun, immediacy and unique sound and workflow of its brethren. At the price it’s both a cool toy and something rather more serious if you choose to use its sounds for production or live performance, which you almost certainly will."
