Fluxus One Annoted Demonstration Patch

Published on May 4, 2017 Tenkai Kariya

"This patch is using the Fluxus One to sequence
Intellijel Atlantis, Macbeth Micromac, MFB Drum08
and Erica Pico Drum. Tempi is used for some modulation
and to trigger the Erica Pico Drum High Hat. The Micromac is fed through a Make Noise Erbe Verb and the Erica Drums are fed into a 4MS DLD."

Zombie Chorus DIY Analogue Synth Project

Published on May 4, 2017 Adamski Ajull

"Here is a demo of some sound patches I have set up and run through the Zombie chorus circuit. Nothing spectacular but just to give you a small flavour of its sound. At times it distorts o me using the with heavy resonace from the filters , I think this is due to the nature of the MN3207s max headroom performance, so mabe in future ill buy and swap over to an mn3007."

DSP Synthesizers Introduces First Eurorack Module with Mini-Extended Keyboard?

via DSP Synthesizers

"This is the micro-TS synth built into a 14HP Eurorack module."

Check out that keyboard. Is this the first eurorack module with a mini-extended keyboard like that? There are others that are flat.

Update: It's interesting when you think about it. Why are knobs and switches the only controls that usually stick out of modules? Someone needs to make a rubber band controller between to points that extend out of the module. Guitar strings? What other sorts of controls can you think of that might be useful? We've seen metronomes and other mechanical modules from gieskes and bastl, but this is somewhat different. The focus here is in interacting with the module itself, rather than using the module to CV control other modules or gear. Just something to think about.

Rare EMS Vocoder 2000 SN 604006

via this auction

"It is in PERFECT working order and sounds unbelievable.

This is the black version and aside from a few small marks and a couple of small scratches on the top and bottom, it looks fantastic. The 3-position switch on the far right was recently replaced by my tech (one of the best techs in LA) as it was occasionally intermittent. I wanted it to be perfect for the next lucky owner. It works perfectly know. The knob is different, and I actually prefer the feel. The original knob is included in case you want to use it in the future. Also included are some bottom mounted "prop-up" feet that are original.

These are incredibly rare, and the best vocoder sound out there. If you're looking at this, you know the deal."

BURG - my very first modular jam (intellijel, makenoise 0-coast, eventide space)

Published on May 4, 2017 ollilaboratories

"I have no idea what I'm doing, but it's fun! :D My first modular jam... well, you have asked for it and here it is.

I purchased an intellijel 7U case, since it's really neat to travel with, my good friend steve lent me some utilities which i mounted.. I'm using the 0-coast as the sound source with some volca key noodling on top.

All is then sent through the red panda on to the eventide space and to 2-track.

Note: I do have some weird ground loop sound kind of sounds going on I need have to checked out.. but what the heck, its modular so I posted this one anyway !

Be careful with the volume, its dynamic !

hehe, enjoy..or something :D"

Upcoming PS411 - EnvAmp Workshop by Antti Pussinen and Wolfgang Spahn

Antti Pussinen PS 411 Attack/Release generator & Opto-Vca

Published on Apr 18, 2017 Antti Pussinen - Previously posted here.

via Antti Pussinen.

"The Dynamics of synthesized sounds are controlled with a Voltage Controlled Amplifier, or VCA.

In a classical subtractive synthesizer arrangement the VCA is controlled through an envelope generator, allowing more interesting dynamic possibilities than just the on/off of a note gate.

Vactrol based Opto-VCA add an Attack and Release time automatically due to the relatively slow turn on, and off times of the led-ldr pair inside a vactrol. The ”opto” part of our VCA is a fast and accurate AC-Optocoupler, which adds a tiny bit of Attack time and Release tail to the signal, but not so much as a Vactrol would. We Decided to go with the optocoupler since factory made Vactrols are getting more rare and expensive, and also rolling your own is a good choice, the response varies due to LED and LDR types and manufacture tolerances.

The Paper Synthesizer PS411 adds more control to the Opto-VCA with Attack and Release control potentiometers. If both turned to zero, the module acts like a normal VCA, controlled by external CV.

If Attack or Release are adjusted, it affects the input CV before it controls the VCA. If CV input is a Gate signal, the envelope generator works like a normal Attack Release generator. Created envelope can be used to also control other modules view envelope output connector. A LED is used to visualize the envelope. A jumper in the board selects between long and short attack and release ranges.

The module comes also with an bipolar offset potentiometer for manually controlling the amplitude. It‘s powered with Eurorack standard +-12 volts or +-15 volts and uses Eurorack power sockets and 3.5mm jacks.

In the workshop we will build the PS411-EnvAmp. We learn the basics principles how the attack/release envelope generator works and how the optocoupler controlled VCA. And certainly we learn how to use the PS411 - EnvAmp.
All the tool and materials will be provided. The workshop will be held in English and German.

I JUST got this from SynthSpa TWO DAYS AGO & I already have to sell it.
So here is a very special ONE OF A KIND JUNO-106 with a SAW wave for SUB.
It gives it almost the SUPER SAW sound when making trance string & pad sounds...
Unique for sure! It has BLUE LEDs, 6 fresh new voice chips, new battery,
3 prong power supply instead of the old school 2 prong one.
It has some surface scratches, dings & other marks but nothing bad,
please see pics closely to see it's physical conditon.
I am sad to only have it a few days but it seems I am little short this month.
My loss is your gain! Comes with JUNO-106 & power supply.

NO RETURNS or REFUNDS! It's 2 days old from SynthSpa! Thanks!"
