MATRIXSYNTH: Saturday, May 27, 2017

Published on May 27, 2017 100 Things I Do

"Looking around the studio this week for inspiration I wanted to do something with both the TB-03 and TB-3 in it. While in some ways they cover the same territory (to the anger of a few people that purchased the TB-3 before Roland released the 03) the 3 has a much more diverse sound and effects engine (and a great little step sequencer you can use on other synths).

I used a sample from the Buchla on the OP-1 and the Elektron RYTM just helps keep things together.

To add interest, I had nothing synched to each other, so while the BPM was set to 113 on everything It came down to hitting the start button at the correct time to keep everything moving togeather (the midi lead between the 3 and the RYTM was not set to Sync).

I'm going to take wee break from youtube for a month. I want to get my latest Album finished and I'm just not finding time and energy to get it into a fix mix and master. I might pop up something randomly but the Sunday Videos will be on hold for 4 weeks. Feel free to message me here or on the social platforms if you have any questions between then and now."

Red Sound Darkstar 8 Voice Virtual Analog Synth

via this auction

"Original owner, never left home. Works great, cool analog-style sounds. Lots of real-time control, including joystick! Software version 1.09. Comes with original power supply and manual.

The DarkStar is a table-top 8-voice polyphonic synthesizer suitable for anybody who wants analog sounds for use in most any style of electronic music. Analog sounds are created by DSP-based analog modeling which means you'll get reliable and clean analog-type synth sounds in a professional instrument. The DarkStar features 2 oscillators per voice, 5-part multitimbral set-up, joystick mixing for oscillators, ring modulation, filter resonance and pink/white/blue noise generators.

There are 14 knobs, all of which transmit MIDI data and provide instant hands-on access to the filters and envelopes. The two LFOs and two envelope generators provide plenty of modulation abilities for the oscillators, pulse-width and filter. The filter offers high-, low- and band-Pass filtering with a 12dB/oct slope. It is fairly flexible since both the cutoff and resonance can be modulated by either LFO and EG for a wide range of filter-sweeping effects."

Studio Electronics Midi Moog

via this auction

"In 1984 My dear friend and musical collaborator the great Saxophonist Michael Brecker asked me if I wanted to buy his Mini Moog. he was getting a new instrument to play electronics out of and the Moog wouldn't work..I bought it..It had a magic sound..Fat and warm.Every Moog was abit different.this was 1986 I got a Roland interface to Midi it so I could use it with my Linn 9000 Drum machine and sequencer.I was Working with great producers and this Moog made it onto some amazing albums..Artists Like Miles Davis,Luther Vandross,Chaka Kahn,Whitney Houston,David Sanborn,Roberta Flack..When you hear the synth bass that is my mini Moog. In 1990 I was making the Album Power of Love By Luther Vandross in LA at A&M studios and I was getting a new rack built..I decided to go to Studio Electronics and get the Mini Moog Rack Mounted..I tested it before hand to make sure that my prized oscillator boards would not be replaced with other boards.It came back perfect. Over the years I have used it on many of my productions and it has been on Grammy and Platinum albums..This instrument rocked..I am now in a different direction and I do not use it anymore so It's time to move it on..It is a great piece of History and if you have the money you can have it..I have no problem hanging onto it but there are several other pieces I want to get and this will help me get there."

Buchla 208r Rev 1 Buchla Easel Clone

via this auction

"Buchla 208r rev 1 in very good condition.

Built by Roman and calibrated for 1/volt per octave so it's compatible with the Eurorack pitch standard.

Works perfectly and sounds incredible.

This is the sound generator part of the Buchla Music Easel.
The rev 1 clones do not have active card slots.

There is a very minor bend in the metal just above the period slider. It does not affect the functionality, and could easily be pushed back into shape.

Module is mounted in a very rudimentary box."

Random*Source Serge Wave Multipliers: Wavefolding (LMS: Eurorack Expansion Preview)

Published on May 27, 2017 Learning Modular

"One of the three sections in the Random*Source Serge Wave Multipliers module is a classic “West Coast” wavefolder with a warm, well-rounded tone. In this movie I demonstrate manual sweeping, enveloping, controlling from a mod wheel for wind-type overblowing effects, and running through a Moog Mother-32’s filter, and layering a VCO from an Expert Sleepers Disting through the wavefolder with the Moog’s own oscillator. It’s also a good introduction to wavefolding for those new to West Coast synthesis techniques.

For more on using the R*S Wave Multipliers – including matching its lower Serge-compatible audio levels with the much higher levels typical in a Eurorack systems – see the companion article on the website:

This movie is one of three on the Random*Source Serge Wave Multipliers module from my online course, "Learning Modular Synthesis: Eurorack Expansion" (available July 2017). For more details including the list of movies and an overview of the course, visit:"

Rheyne - Sequenced Jam #34 - "DFAM Jam" (Moog Drummer From Another Mother)

Published on May 27, 2017 Rheyne

"First video with the Moog "Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM)" from Moogfest 2017. I assembled the module in the Engineer Workshop, led by Steve Dunnington who designed it. All notes are triggered by the Moog and Make Noise hardware in the rack.

The DFAM is solo'd at the beginning and end of the video from a state change on the Make Noise Tempi, which I controlled using Lemur on my phone which was taped to the camera. This was sent as a MIDI message from Lemur to an iConnectMIDI 4, and then to one of the Mother-32 modules where it was converted to CV, which was sent to the Tempi's state change CV input.

The module has much more versatility than what's heard and displayed here. More coming soon."

WSYnth FM Ogre Thru-Zero FM

via this auction

"The FM Ogre is an expanded implementation of a Chowning FM Operator. It defaults to operate on a sine wave, but the sine can be thru-zero FMed or PMed (phase modulated) from 0 through both positive and negative frequencies and phase spaces. The feedback control allows self-modulation without patchcords. It obeys both 1V/octave and linear FM. Thru-zero authority is roughly 10 KHz for TZFM and roughly 16pi (8 full rotations of phase) for TZPM with the default software
In VCO mode the module will do roughly 2 Hz to roughly 30 KHz. LFO mode goes from roughly 1 cycle per 10 minutes to 30 Hz (i.e. the LFO switch goes 10 octaves down). The FM and PM inputs are bipolar from -5 to +5 volts; the Feedback input is null at 0 volts but recognizes both + and - voltages. Sampled input is at "high level" - 10V p/p, DC coupled.

The default waveform can be overridden (by the "Sample" switch) to allow through-zero FM and PM of any input signal including acoustic instruments or human voices; the "SYNC" input allows freezing of the input sample for pitch-shifted and phase modulated '"stutter" and "scrollback" effects. SYNC IN freezes the write pointer in the buffer, so short pulses of +5 on SYNC IN can assemble a granular timbre.

The LoFi switch engages a realtime bitcrusher that requantizes to 3, 4, 5, 6, .... 65535 discrete output levels. As bitcrushing uses the phase mod jack and knob, phase modulation is not available during bitcrushing (but TZFM and realtime sampling are).

The three indicator LEDs indicate Heartbeat (output > 0 volts), Negative phase, and Negative Frequency.

The module uses a DSPIC microprocessor, has better-than-CD-quality dual 16 bit DACs operated at ~90 KHz

The module is 8HP wide, and roughly 30mm deep. it draws approximately 120mA on +12V and 10mA on -12V. Comes with power bus cable and M3 mounting screws. Fully calibrated to track accurately over 6 octaves (which is per the designers spec)."
