VOLTLIFE: Xaoc Devices Drezno first patches

Published on Jun 3, 2017 voltlife

"Some quick experiments using Xoac Devices' new Drezno module to process audio. Animodule's M1xXOR allows manual and voltage control of which bits are passed through, ignored or inverted, but you could do similar things with switch, logic or VCA modules.

Initial patch:
Dixie II sine → Drezno ADC → M1xXOR → Drezno DAC

Second patch:
Dixie II saw → Pittsburgh Filter→ Drezno ADC → M1xXOR → Drezno DAC"

You can find addition posts featuring Drezno here.

"It probably sounds sale-sy but I swear there is something different about this prodigy than any other I've ever played. It's just got this magical 70's side to it that I never anticipated. You can actually make it sound a lot like an arp soloist."

The Sequential Split-Eight (1985) AKA: PRO-8
I've really gone & done it. This synth is so cool!
How to describe such a RARE SYNTHESIZER...
--with all of it's character & vintage quirks.....
As quirky as a Prophet-600 (tuning, voicing, MIDI) mean as a Prophet-600 (If you know what you are doing)
It's knob-less to the knob jockey but it's POWER is easily
accessible thru the IN YOUR FACE menu diagram right in front
of you... such a breeze to tweak... and after a bit you get it
& it is SO FUN to make new sounds! Worth the $$$$!!!

In this demo I show off some custom sounds & I tweak
them into sonic mutations.. this synth (and other SCI kit)
is so cool & all have a distinct sonic character different
from ANY other synth in the studio. Even against new
DSI gear.. Original Sequential Circuits gear still holds it's
sonic charm, allure, worth & POWER! I love it!!!

The SPLIT-EIGHT is SUPER RARE on the market...
I was calling all of my spirit guides & demigods to help me
on this transaction.. but here are the HARD FACTS PEOPLE...
If you EVER expect a second hand vintage synth to be
FLAWLESS (unless completely refurbished) be ready for
a serious surprise... expect SOMETHING quirky at least...
I have had more than a few vintage synths like this... :0
(It's 2017 for goodness sake! LOL!!!)

The Split-8 sounds cool, it's useful for today's vintage standard.
But expect some tuning issues randomly, voices not following
the filter or some amp settings like all of the other voices...
There are a few moments in this video demo that show it...
Wine Country might be your friend for a few months...
(But hey, It's good to be their friend, they are awesome!!)
That being said having some SWEET vintage kit is cool &
such an honor to have! It says a TON about your synth taste!
I like how this synth can pull up sounds not like anything else.
I am going to post a few more videos of this RARE SYNTH soon.
Keep posted, Subscribe & TURN IT UP!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!

Thank you for watching!!

Erica Dtech VCF: Exploring Instability (LMS: Eurorack Expansion Preview)

Published on Jun 3, 2017 Learning Modular

"The filter in the classic Russian Polivoks synthesizer is prized for its distortion and occasionally out-of-control resonance. The Eurorack-format Erica Dtech VCF is my personal favorite implementation of the Polivoks filter, including lots of controls, different cutoff curves and resonance responses, as well as a switch between low pass and bandpass operation.

In this movie I explore how to put the filter in and out of instability by manipulating the input level and resonance amount, including using the unusual 'CV Address' control. I spend most of the time in low pass mode, but also explore bandpass toward the end. For more on using the Dtech VCF, see the companion article on the website:

This movie is second of two on the Erica Dtech VCF 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:"

Roland SH-01 GAIA - Some 80's patches

Published on Jun 3, 2017 tiergrinder

"Roland GAIA gets lot of bashing and beating at synth forums, but I've always loved mine. I bought it new when it came out, and I've never thought of letting it go. It's relatively cheap, fun to use and it has great interface and controls. Synth engine is good for learing synthesis and GAIA has tons of hidden modulation and soundscape building possibilities under the hood.

This short video shows couple of the first 80's style patches I recreated with GAIA. Brasses and pads emulate Jupiter-8 sounds. Melody at 'Love In A Real Train" emulates Juno-106 type of sound.
Strings around 1:36 emulates Juno-106 chorus strings.

In almost all cases, GAIA was recorded dry without any of the synths internal FX. Gaia's own presets are drowned in effects, I wanted to show how this sounds dry and with external effects."
