'Wicked' - ngarjuna

Published on Jul 24, 2017 ngarjuna

The Motomouth mumbles...
Produced by ngarjuna
© 2017 Acid Coast

Patch Notes:
Combination of new and old: the bass, WC Plucks and SMR patches are all from February. Everything else is from more recently.

Mumbles & Wicked Refrain Patch
The main patch's Motomouth modulation is from a series of S&H CVs from the Abstract Data Octocontroller; I scanned around until I found something I liked then grabbed some bars then scanned around to something else
Audio Damage Sequencer 1 providing PITCH and SNAP gates (ACCENT) to Intellijel Rubicon
SAW and PULSE with small amount of PWM modulation from an Octocontroller LFO to STG .MIX to the Limaflo Motomouth
Out to Intellijel uVCA enveloped by Intellijel Dual ADSR

WC Plucks
Stereo patch
Rene driving pitch to STO and Sputnik 1 glide modulated by Seq One
Octocontroller driving pitch to Sputnik 2
Sputnik 1 getting waveshape CV from LFO from Octocontroller and FM'd by Sputnik 2
Sputnik 1 VAR going into Optomix 1 enveloped by Maths
STO FM'd by Sputnik 2 and SHAPE modulated by Octocontroller LFO
STO VAR going into Optomix 2 enveloped by Maths

SMR Melodic
2 Octocontroller loops going into L and R respectively
Octocontroller S&H controlling the ROTATE CV

I don't have patch notes or video but there are two other SMR patches: one which produces kind of a pitchless, funky bouncy kind of sound; another which is a more percussive, almost glasslike kind of sound

You can hear the more subtle modular parts when the Avalon and Motomouth and drums all drop out around 6:33

PAIA 2720 Vintage Analog Synth

via this auction

"PAIA 2720 analog synth. Well constructed to still be working after all these years. I cleaned it up, turned it on, made a simple patch, checked the oscillators and the noise. They work. The Control Oscillator module also functions. Voltage Control Amp, Low Pass and Band Pass seem to work as well, though with my limited experience, full functionality may not be there.

That being said, the synth sounds amazing, in a gritty, lo-fi way. Ran it through effects, and it really cuts. Capable of some nice drones and ambient textures as well as leads.

All keys work at the moment. Comes with original manuals and patch cables. Physically in excellent shape. Some of the lettering has peeled off. I've seen some people write on them with sharpie, but I will leave that up to you, the new owner."

Grant Drum Synce DS7 Coron Analog Synth

via this auction

Yet another Coron drum synth clone. What's bizarre is the Grant logo and design differs from this one. Why?

"A rare japanese made analog drum synth, exactly like the Coron DS7 and the now many countless clones.

It's in good working order with only a few blemishes here and there.

The three top knobs are missing the silver caps and the sensitivity knob I suspect is non original.

9v Battery operated, It works simply by clamping onto any drum rim and the internal sensor responds to the drum hit, alternatively a light tap on the side generates the hit to provide all sorts of fx bleeps and bloops."

BLINKSONIC° SUBSTANZ° Update & 20% off on VOZ°

You can find the discount on VOZ° here, and SUBSTANZ° here.

Details on the update:

"A new version of SUBSTANZ° is available for download and free for registered users.

Some really nice improvements here, and aswell, a little tweak of the interface.

Here the change log :

The Mixer and Send Effect command routing has been revised,
All “Decay” knobs have been recalibrated. The values are more accurate,
In random mode, sample selectors knobs indicate the value of the sample triggered in real time,
Addition of a “solo” button on each tracks, for momentary cut of the related track,
The Global Pitch acts now downstream of all the other pitch parameters (pitch per track and pitch step sequencer)
Improved GUI for FX Processorz. To access the parameters of each effect just click on the “Momentary” button. To apply the effect, click the toggle button now represented by the effect symbol. (Similar to the Block PROCESSORZ ° available in the RUL)
All the snapshots have been reorganized and partially renamed.
Addition of 20 new kits, for a total of 80 additional raw files.
A new bank with 33 new snapshots.
New bank of 128 snapshots which compiles all the existing snapshots as drum kits without being launch by the internal sequencer. These kits aimed to be instantly triggered by an external sequencer (DAW) or any midi source.
New reduced “view B” which shows only the main parts of the interface, in order to take up less space on the screen according to the workflow used within a DAW.
New NKS mapping (Light Guide, Native Map®)
The “scope” viewer has been deleted to optimize the CPU,

IMPORTANT NOTE : This update is not anymore compatible with Reaktor 5.
I took care allowing enough time for users to make the transition, but it’s time to move forward. For users which don’t have yet Reaktor 6, keep an archive of the previous version of the ensemble (1.0) and continue using SUBSTANZ ° with Reaktor 5."

Intellijel Metropolis Sequencing Atlantis Synth Voice

Published on Jul 24, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"This patch uses all Intellijel Modules with a Metropolis sequencing an Atlantis full voice. The Atlantis then runs into a Polaris filter in phaser mode and then to a 1U Digiverb for effects. A 1U Noise Random Tools provides extra S&H modulation to the Metropolis and Polaris. The system is housed in an intellijel 4U aluminum case.

The Metropolis is a unique and powerful musical sequencer inspired by the Ryk M-185 (a Roland System 100m format sequencer.) but with many additional enhancements and functions.

The Intellijel Atlantis was constructed in the spirit of the Roland’s legendary SH-101. Like its inspiration, the Atlantis excels at rich bass sounds and soaring leads. However, unlike the SH-101, the Atlantis ditches the sawtooth core for a triangle core, designed by David Dixon, sourced from the Intellijel Dixie. The decision to add a triangle core means that the Atlantis excels at FM style sounds. The modulator oscillator can be switched from an LFO to a VCO, with both oscillators able to track at an astonishing 8 octaves."

Behringer Deepmind 12 vs. Roland Juno 60 - no talking

Published on Jul 24, 2017 Rüdiger Gaenslen
Re-Published on Jul 28, 2017 Rüdiger Gaenslen

"Short Demonstration of the oscillators, the chorus and some basic sounds.

My impression is, that the Deepmind cannot match the Juno. The filter of the Juno sounds better in my opinion. Also the chorus in the Deepmind cannot match the great Juno Chorus. The Deepmind is a nice Polysynth which should sound like a Juno, but doesn't. Also it is very difficult to program equally sounding patches on the Deepmind.

It is only a short Demo, maybe I will later find time to make a better and more objective Video. But for the first impression it might help, I hope. Thanks for watching!"

It's worth noting the Deepmind12 was based on the Juno-106 (see here and here), not the Juno-60.

"This is an quick tour of the Roland SH-101 where I go over all the different knobs and sliders and explain how the synth works. The SH-101 is a vintage monophonic analog synthesizer from the 80s. It has only one oscillator, but it does have pulse width modulation and a sub-octave generator to thicken things up. It also has a built in sequencer and arpeggiator as well as CV/Gate ins and outs so you can integrate with your modular synth for example."

Arc Spectral Filter

Published on Jul 24, 2017 stretta

"This a demo of an FFT filter device I made for Ableton Live and the monome arc. Really satisfying how musical it is. The amplitudes of the FFT are determined by a 2D table which can be rotated. The lookup and rotation can be fed by two LFOs. You can import your own tables for an infinite variety of filter responses. The source audio is Stretta Cloud - just a pedal tone of detuned sawtooths."

Guenther - Toddler Synth

Published on Jul 24, 2017 GumpherDM3

"Here is a video of my first analog electronics project build as a gift for my kids a few years back. It's a very basic semi-modular analog synthesizer. It operates as a noise box and is a fun introduction to very basic sound synthesis. It contains one Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO), two Low Frequency Oscillators (LFO), and a Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA). All modules are linear.

The build was put together using various schematics around the Internet. I do not know the original source for the VCO/LFO schematics, but the VCA was based on the LM13700 datasheet schematic. Enjoy!"
