MIDI Designer Pro Editing/Performance Layout for Korg Electribe

Published on Jul 6, 2017 The Drümünkey

"This is a short video demo of the new #mididesignerpro layout I created for my #KORG #Electribe E2.

You can download the MDP template here

*** HELP!!! If there's ANY kind soul out there in Electribe land that can help me figure out how to send a SYSEX message to the Electribe and have it send out the current value of all it's knobs & switches I would be in your eternal debt!!! ***

A few notes:

* Yes, the fisheye lens sucks, but my fauxpro is the only video camera I have running right now
* omg... I didn't notice the 'verb on the mic... I'm sticking to annotations from now on... sigh...
* Yes, often the focus sucks so you'll have to pretend you're Mr. Magoo and squint a bit
* This layout has a literal Shitton of controls, so it's a REAL resource hog. It works on my Air 2 OK, but it's a bit laggy. I've created a few version of this for my own use where I delete a bunch of the control that I know I won't use... For instance the OSC stuff. I use that for editing, but not so much for performing/jamming. Download and mod for your own use.
* I kept the camera running for a bit after I finished the demo part and just kind of jammed a bit...(~8:00)... Be gentle... I've only had the E2 for like a week..."

I thought it would be fun to flick through some presets and twiddle some knobs.
We love the distortion, and the filters really scream!
We barely scratched the surface with what this can do, this beast is deep!

Novation circuit meets modular synth

Published on Jun 29, 2017 theonetrueaen

"Ever wonder about integrating a Circuit with a modular rig? ME TOO! I ran the midi out from the circuit (just the first synth voice) into the Critter and Guitari Melody Mill, and sent the resulting pitch CV out to the Pittsburgh Modular Double Helix, and Make Noise Telharmonic. I ran the gate signal to the Double Helix, 4MS PEG, and pittsburgh envelope. The envelope opens and closes a VCA for the telharmonic's audio. The circuit and modular are all mixed in the rack, and sent out to Propellerhead Reason for recording.

This is my first crack at this, so forgive me if it isn't as SUPER COOL as yours would be."

Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 w/ MIDI REV 3.3 SN 3675

via this auction

"Serial # 1000-3675

Flight Case included. Near Mint.

This item has been in a smoke free studio since it's purchase in the 80's. Never gigged with. As you can tell from the photos, she is a beauty with very little wear (some minor dings and scratches) It sounds amazing and is fully functional minus a few hiccups:

1. As with all of these Prophet's, the bushings on the keyboard have worn out so the action is janky as is. BUT, I'm including a brand new set of bushings with lubrication. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make the change myself, but one can change the bushings easily and in less than two hours ... see youtube.

2. Two of the LEDS are out: OSC B SAW & Unison --- both buttons still function ... the leds are just burnt out.

3. In the Wheel-Mod section, the PW A button is stuck. Easily remedied by opening the synth up and unsticking it.

Other than than those minor problems the synth functions beautifully and sounds glorious. The synth looks and sounds flawless minus the minimal wear from being almost 40 years old. Make those small changes to the bushings and unsticking the button, and this synth is close to Mint."

Analog Experiments 7 (Tom Cat, Retroverb & TP-2)

Published on Jul 5, 2017 HardtekStudios

"The 'Analog Experiments' series have resumed, and there will be plenty more coming! For this installment, I break a common rule for running effects in series by running the Tom Cat thru the Vermona Retroverb reverb first, and then into the TP-2 for tube distortion and optical compression. This causes the reverb signal to combine with the drums for a super big sound. The Vermona Retoverb has a dedicated Attack/Decay envelope to control the reverb tail. I tweak the Decay knob a lot and the Wet/Dry mix knob for kewl reverb accents, along with other knobs."
