Modular Field Trip Ep. 2 - River Atmospheres with Zvex Lo-Fi Junky, Temps Utile, Minilogue,

Published on Apr 26, 2017 ann annie

"Today’s patch takes place with a very cold 6am morning field trip to Smith Rock State Park. Patch Secrets Below.
Check out Instagram! @analoganne - it's pretty rad.

The whispers of this Patch:

- Power was graciously provided using a portable Car Jump Starter with a 12v output port. Audio Recorded using a Scarlett 2i2 No DI boxes this time. Natural Audio Captured by Camera Mic.

Pad Sound (Key Hold on the Minilogue):

Korg Minilogue Sequenced with Temps Utile (Ch. B) at 7680BPM (x64) playing a one step sequence. I placed three different chords in three different patch memories right next to each other allowing me to switch between chords while still retaining the key hold.
The Minilogues output is being set to Zvex Lo-Fi Junky, then into the JHS Alpine Reverb.

Other weird noises:
Assign (random) attenuated and sent to onboard LFO rate
Triangle LFO — : Rings Structure
VCA —: Rings Input
Clocked by Temps Utile (Ch. C)

Intellijel Dixie set in LFO mode modulating Temps Ch. C Divide/Mult
Dixie’s Sine wave output sent to modulate ring’s brightness

Sending clock to Moog Mother 32 and Korg Minilogue
Sending random voltages to the Mother 32's Reset.

Ocean Verb - Mother 32/Rings Shimmer Reverb
Zvex Lo-Fi Junky - Minilogue
JHS Alpine Reverb - Minilogue
MXR Carbon Copy - Mother 32/Ring’s Delay"

"This is a demo of the 3080 VCO from Pmfoundations. Find out more at Near the start I mentioned 'VCA' instead of 'VCO.' Oops."

via Pmfoundations:

"Compact 6HP VCO for Eurorack Modular synthesizers


This is a compact Triangle Core VCO. You can install your classic CA3080 OTA chips or use a modern LM13700 instead. The PCB has the option to use either chip.

This VCO has been shrunk to the minimum size possible so you can maximize the remaining space in your rack, while packing in a wealth of functionality:

Triangle, pulse and sine wave forms
1/V octave input + variable Linear FM CV and variable Exponential FM CV
Adjustable pulse width and variable PWM CV input
6HP Eurorack with our panel
This is a low component count project so you can have high quality VCOs in your rack with minimum expense.

Build it yourself - This is a set of one high quality PCB and front panel ONLY for users who want to purchase their own components and build their own module. Some product photos above show COMPLETED build.

This module will fit perfectly into a 6HP Eurorack space.

Comprehensive manuals, parts lists and component shopping carts are provided in the documentation link for building, testing and using the module."

every single moogerfooger in series on a beat 2017 04 26

"Here's a beat through every moogerfooger that I own, in series. It's kinda mushy. But has a nice robotic growl at the end.

It's kinda crazy to think that this is how most guitarists setup up their fx pedals... in series, one after the other. How does any tone survive?

Signal path is MPC1000 - ClusterFlux108m - Murf105 - Freqbox107 -

Roxy Music's Brian Eno's Custom Dual EMS SYNTHI

A few pics of Brian Eno's custom dual EMS SYNTHI via MarkEC on the AH mailing list. You can see the custom SYNTHI in the video posted here.

Peter Forrest, author of The A-Z of Analogue Synthesizers chimed in with the following:

"I asked Robin Wood and got this reply, which he said was OK to relay.

'Nice to see a few photos of this beast, usually only seen in OGWT video footage (or should that be TOTP?)..

This was a special built for Roxy by Gerry and Brian Rodgers, quite possibly after they had split from EMS when they were trading as RSE (Rogers Studio Equipment).

According to Gerry there were problems with its reliability. Also Gerry says Eno was 'sacked' by Roxy partly because of the instrument, so it's 'working' life was short. Information not easily substantiated..'"

Yamaha CS30 Vintage Black

via this auction

"A hugely capable synth with complex routing facilities and the excellent CS filters for real exploration of what electronic music is all about. This is a full-on and proper synth for some serious work and an inspirational instrument with a lot of tools for sound creation.

The built in 8 step sequencer really makes this synth special and is one of only a few vintage synths that featured this very useful facility. There are a useful amount of inputs for control including CV/Gate so you can hook her up easily to a Midi to CV converter. There is also an external-in for running external signals (modulation sources) through the synth. This all just adds up to a beautifully thought out and well executed design."

Notes @ 3am

Published on Apr 25, 2017 Dudadius

"Eurorack modular with Dave Smith Instruments Tempest and Elektron Analog Heat.

Tempest sends clock to Intellijel uMidi, which distributes cv around the system.

Bass voice is Atlantis played by Monome Ansible Kria.

Second voice is Dixie II+ and Polaris, from channel 2 of Kria.

Third voice is from B2 sequencer channel of the Tempest, playing Synth Tech E330 through a Cwejman MMF1s.

There are a couple of other melodic parts coming from the Tempest itself.

Orthogonal Devices ER-301 is playing some noise, ambient, and speech samples (from Synth Tech circuit bent module) that I created and recorded previously. Trigger from Malekko Varigate8/Voltage Block.

Tiptop One has some percussion loaded.

Audio Damage Neuron is doing the noisy hi-hat thing.

Intellijel Rainmaker and Audio Damage Eos are on the effects send of the WMD Performance Mixer. Eleketron Analog Heat is inserted into the master bus."

Crumar DS-2 Analog Synthesizer with MIDI Added

LEGOWELT's Studiostuff ::Crumar DS-2 Synthesizer::

Published on Jan 2, 2015 Farsetto Nero

via this auction

"The Crumar DS-2 is a really big sounding analog synth. Made my Crumar in the late 70's, it was apparently once of the first DCO synths that was still fully analog - the LFOs on this synth are really crazy and you can get some very spacey sounds, as well as aggressive and bass-heavy low end.

Cosmetically, it is in decent shape, the front panel has some slight rusting from age, but it is in very good working order! I had the synth serviced recently, and had MIDI added, which really takes it to a whole new level. Everything functions as it should, including the poly section. It comes with a case enclosure as well (not in picture).

More info:

'This is not a synthesizer for boring italo basslines, funky leadlines and commonplace pop music melodies. This thing is instant cosmic space travel... Its big, unstable, adventerous, bleepy, moist, crackling, cloudy, hoarse, droney' - Legowelt"

Mutable Instruments Ambika Polyphonic Analog digital Hybrid Desktop Synth

via this auction

"Rugged CNC machined, anodized and engraved aluminum case. Green OLED display, includes AC adapter (US/Japan)

(design by Mutable Instruments)
Ambika is a monster hybrid polysynth. Its design consists of a motherboard and 6 voicecards, each of them carrying a turbocharged version of the Shruthi hybrid synthesizer (digital waveform synthesis through analog VCF/VCAs). Whether you want to use this as six monosynths, a six-voice polysynth, or anything in-between is up to you: MIDI channels/keyboard range/patches/voices are distinct concepts, allowing complex layered, split, multitimbral setups. In addition, each voice has a switched individual output.

Improved sound generation engine

Ambika offers all the delicious digital waveform synthesis algorithms (FM, vowel synthesis, wavetables…) that made the Shruthi famous, and some newcomers too: CZ-style emulation of digital filters and wave sequencing. The oscillators signal is now processed through a fuzz/distortion and a bitcrusher before being sent to the analog filters.

The modulation possibilities are immense thanks to the 4 LFOs (3 synchronized and 1 free running), 3 ADSRs, and the large modulation matrix (14 slots, 4 modifiers)."
