Terminator 1984 Piano Remix w/ Digitakt

Published on Jun 19, 2017 Nostalgic Ruckus

"To one of my favorite 80s movies. The piano track is taken from the end credits of the original 1984 film The Terminator. Sampling with Digitakt using Analog Heat for saturation. Each track has a different start and end point of the piano along with some detuning. The 2 drum tracks are stock Digitakt drums tweaked."

Space-Time Distortion Near Track Number 8 (Experimental Music & Video)

Published on Jun 19, 2017 Mark Mosher

I discovered a space-time distortion while visiting Chicago. The location of the anomaly is at track 8 at Union Station. Here is the video (which gets more trippy as you go along) to prove it.

Artist Notes:

This audio and video was captured in one real-time pass to a Zoom Q4N. The primary source video for 90% of the visuals is from the overhead view of the live studio session. The only other footage is a video field recording from Chicago's Union Station also recorded on the Zoom Q4N. The audio was not edited when I added video effects in post.

The audio field recording was extracted the Zoom Q4N video shot at Union Station. It's mangled pretty heavily in this piece put if you listen closely, you can hear an automated voice informing you that you are at track 8 and 10. Interestingly, the speakers at the station are not directional and the audio is at different loop lengths - so just wandering about between these gates is a trippy polyrhythmic treat.

Perhaps this will end up on Sonic Encounters Volume 02. Check out Sonic Encounters Volume 01

Instrumentation and Instrumentalities:

The piece is a combination of live sequencing and live performance. The Octatrack is used to host drum samples and recording. It is also used to MIDI sequence 3 synth slots on the Nord Lead 4 including MIDI automation. I perform live using all 4 slots on the Nord plus manipulate the Octatrack in real-time. Lots of real-time sound design and morphing. All the groovy synth sounds are exclusive to Nord Lead 4 all being created in real-time (meaning no synth audio was pre-recorded)."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 Analog Synthesizer SN 3246

via this auction

Some cool black and white shots. Note the serial number is scraped on. It may or may not be the original.


via this auction

"I have owned a lot of analog polysynths, and this one has a unique character that is unlike the Roland Junos or the Korg polysix. Part of that is because it is dual OSC and can do a lot more than those synths. But also, it just sounds refreshingly different. It reminds me just a little of an Akai AX-80 in that it doesn't sound like anything else, but it delivers that classic analog sound; very warm and very large. The lack of dedicated knobs or sliders is not as big of an issue as you might think. Programming is very intuitive, and being able to name your presets is a real luxury. There is no better deal than the Kawai SX-240 when it comes to obtaining a dual OSC (with SUB OSC), analog polysynth with all the features that this has. The effects are the icing on the cake with a rich Chorus, Portamento, Hold and Glissando. AND there is a sequencer."

Vintage Moog The Rogue Analog Mono Synthesizer w/custom Case SN 4866

via this auction

"Here's another piece of analog synth history, the classic Moog Rogue (one of the last mono Moogs, and one of the last models to be made all in-house).

Overall working condition is great; the noise slider (in the mixer/overdrive section) is a little finicky and sometimes causes sound to cut out. It's probably a connection that needs cleaning and/or soldering... definitely a small fix, as I seldom have run into issues, and only when I'm live tweaking that slider.

Additionally, the pitch and mod wheels have some paint on them (pictured) but this doesn't in any way affect performance. All other knobs/sliders function brilliantly, and the sound is...well...there's simply nothing like it (except maybe, the MiniMoog)

The auction includes a custom-built hard case with foam inserts (pictured). "

Willzyx Xoxbox - Analog Bass Synth - Roland TB 303 clone

via this auction

"This is a Xoxbox, professionally built by Willzyx in 2012, in perfect condition. All functions work as expected. This has Sokkos 2.0 OS installed, which allows triplets and expands the sequencer functions. This xoxbox was built before Willzyx stopped using the original 303 parts, so to my knowledge it should have all the OG transistors and sound more like an actual 303 than the more recent xox's. To my ears, it is indistinguishable from a 303 - sounds incredible for basslines and chirpy acid lines. You'd be crazy to spend 3k on a 303 when you can get one of these for so much less. Only selling because I'm downsizing my studio for financial reasons.

x0xb0x = Synth + Sequencer
The x0xb0x is not just another MIDI-controlled TB-303 clone. x0xb0x is a full reproduction of the original Roland synthesizer, with fully functional sequencer. The sequencer can be programmed just like the original 303 (ok its actually a little easier, we think) and can be used to control other synthesizers via any of its various output formats. 128 banks of track memory and 64 banks of pattern memory are stored in onboard EEPROM, no battery-backup is needed!"

Emerson Modular System & More Coming to Gearfest 2017 This Weekend

via Moog Music:

"This weekend, Moog Music travels to Fort Wayne, Indiana for Gearfest 2017: two days of hands-on music technology demonstrations, workshops from top engineers and artists, amazing musical performances and exclusive on-site deals.

Visit us at Gearfest to see the Emerson Moog Modular System, watch a live build of a limited-edition instrument and explore the outdoor 'synth garden'...

In the summer of 1970, Moog Music shipped a model I-CA synthesizer to Keith Emerson. Over the course of many years, Emerson collaborated with Bob Moog on the commission of dozens of custom modules to complete his megalithic Moog. Using original documentation, circuit board and art files, Moog engineers spent three years rebuilding Keith Emerson's legendary Moog Modular system. Each module is hand-stuffed and hand-soldered using the original parts and processes of the 1970s. We will be demonstrating the Emerson Moog Modular System on the Crescendo Stage at Gearfest 2017 and the final E.M.M.S. (only 2 others exist in the world, excluding Keith's original) will be available for purchase exclusively through Sweetwater."

"Experience Production of a Limited-Edition Instrument

Analog production moves from Asheville, NC to Fort Wayne, IN as we build a limited-edition instrument live at Gearfest 2017. Visit the Moog Pop-Up Factory at the Crescendo Stage to discover the details of the build and experience hands-on instrument production. All instruments built during Gearfest will be available for purchase on-site or exclusively through"

"Visit the Outdoor Synth Garden

In addition to the Moog Pop-Up Factory and the Emerson Moog Modular System on display at the indoor Crescendo Stage, you can also enjoy refreshments with the Moog crew and walk in the cool grass of our outdoor "synth garden" located at Booth C4 in the Electronic Music Production Tent."

Happy Nerding Intoduces new OUT Eurorack Module

"'OUT' provides two balanced outs (Left and Right) for the summed two stereo inputs. One of these stereo inputs can be attenuated with the relative knob next to its input jacks. Also there are jumpers on the back side to select 10x amplification for this input. Thus, in case some line level devices are used, they can easily be amplified to normal modular levels. This way the module replaces some input modules people use only for amplification.

There is also a standard ¼ inch jack for the headphones. The headphones level is independently adjusted with the lower knob, while upper knob adjusts main out (L&R) which is then shown by the leds meter.

There are also two jumpers on the back pcb which set phones level (for L and R channels). When they installed the phones level is at max. But if the user has high sensitivity headphones – he can remove these jumpers and get more adequate adjustment for his phones level with inner knob.

The price is targeted for 160 Euro + VAT or 180 USD.

6 HP width, 50 mm depth.

The module is currently available at Schneider’s Laden showroom, so can be tweaked in flesh."

Upload your MicroMonsta sysex file, reorder the patches and save a new sysex file to upload on our beloved synthesizers.

There is still much work to do, such as creating new files by taking patches from different archives, renaming or deleting patches... in the future, maybe, read and write sysex data through Web Midi API but this require a SSL certificate for the website... and time to work on it

This piece if software is released for free and as is!!

Make always a backup of your patches!

Xaoc Devices Batumi + Glockenspiel

Published on Sep 20, 2016 Joseph Branciforte

"in this first test with a newly acquired xaoc batumi, i have the batumi in phase mode (which allows shifting the 2nd-4th lfos 0-360 degrees out of phase relative to the 1st) to control parameters on the mutable instruments clouds and the mannequins three sisters filter.

the clouds was fed by a mic recording glockenspiel into an 8 second buffer. the square wave output of lfo 1 on the batumi was multed to both the position and texture inputs of the clouds. the sine output of lfo one was used to control the phase of lfo 2, whose own sine was controlling the cutoff frequency of the filter. the saw wave output of lfo 2 was used to control the phase input of lfo 4, whose square wave output was used as a clock source for the qu-bit nano-rand and whose sine wave output was fed into the fm input of the three sisters. the nano-rand's output feeds the size input of the clouds."
