BURG - techno? jam (Roland AIRA TB-3, TR-8, KORG volca)

Published on Apr 14, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Yeah, more jam sessions techno style coming up... this time building some BURG ambience with the volca keys. This one will most probably be part of the live set in May, its important that style does not wander off too far from what i normally do :)

I had a so much better flow on my initial jams.. but dammit i forgot to charge the camera batteries so TWO of them died during what i felt was one of the better takes :( whatever, stuff sometimes dont always go as you have planned right ?

Ok, so again its TB-3 centric in drive (this is an important part for the live set) and i have these messed up sounds (again) in the elekton and 0-coast. Using the circuit a bit more on this for beats and stuff.. a bit vanilla maybe but it felt alright.

Let me know what you think. BoOoOoM !

Gear used: Elektron Analog Four, System-1, TB-3, TR-8, KORG volca bass, keys, novation circuit, 0-coast

FX, strymon timeline, el capistan, earthquaker devices space spiral and transmisser, kaoss pad, ms-70 CDR"

TIPTOP AUDIO ONE TUTORIAL ~ Eurorack sampler module

Published on Apr 14, 2017 once upon a synth

"This is a tutorial of the TipTop Audio One eurorack sampler module. We go over the basic panel features including the different CV and gate modes. We then go over the SD card, how to update the config file and how to load your own samples and process them with Audacity. I also demo using the One as a VCO by loading a single cycle waveform and finally trigger a full track to see how it handles longer samples."

1975 Photo Essay - How to Make an Optigan Disc

Published on Apr 14, 2017 optigandotcom

"I had some Optigan odds & ends sitting around and decided to mash them all up into one video. The slide show is from a photo album that Mike LeDoux (the guy in charge of making all the original Optigan discs) put together in 1975 in order to, basically, show his corporate overlords at Miner Industries / Opsonar (this was in the post-Mattel era) why they still needed to keep him, since he was their only employee on the west coast. The idea was to show them how complicated his job was, and that they couldn't simply "hire some other guy" to do the work at their plant on the east coast. Needless to say, it was a hell of alot more difficult to make an Optigan disc back then as it is now! Though it's still pretty tricky...

The audio is a variety of things from cassettes found in Mike's archives:

First off is the only Optigan radio spot that I'm aware of.

Next is a series of demos made during the sessions that Art DePew arranged and conducted for Optigan. These are all big band recordings, and resulted in discs such as Champagne Music, Big Band Beat, Swing It, and Dixieland Strut. During the sessions, they had a bit of fun jamming on the basic arrangements, and that's what you're hearing here. Some of these arrangements never got used on any Optigan discs, so we may issue them at some point if there's sufficient demand.

Lastly is the audio only from a Dec. 21, 1972 broadcast of the Dinah Shore TV show. Her guest was Barry Goldwater, who gets roped into attempting to play an Optigan. I'd love to see the actual clip, but I've yet to find it anywhere. If anyone finds it, let me know!"

This method eliminates any 'wrong' notes, leaving you with a melodically pleasing synth line with out much time or hassle involved."
