Kit Review # 11 - Transient Modules 8S Sequencer

Published on Jul 29, 2017 Synth Diy Guy

"A simple sequencer with some neat tricks up it's sleeve!"

This is the first Transient Modules post on the site.

via Transient Modules

"The 8S is an 8 step sequencer in 8 HP with control over parameters of the sequence as reset, hold, random step and direction. It’s been designed to work with clock related signals like triggers or gates but any type of CV signals can be used at its inputs. The output signal path is completely analog and its range can be set as unipolar (0 to +5 volts) or bipolar (-5 to +5 volts) via jumper on the back.

Technical specifications:

• 8HP

• 38 mm depth

• Consumption: +12V: 55mA ; -12V: 10mA.

Korg MS-10 Vintage Monophonic Analog Synthesizer SN 134653

via this auction

"The labels look mostly in good shape and only a couple of letters look dinged. There is a screw missing on the left side panel(pictured). The previous owner might've removed it because that whole looks like there was a crack that was repaired. A couple of dings and scratches on the body but overall good for its age. This is the version that has the momentary button under the mod wheel.

This synth is loud! It's a one oscillator synth but the triangle and saw can really shake a room. I didn't list as used because functionally the pulse waveform and the lowpass filter need work.

When PW/PWM is set all the way to the left it sounds fine but as you start turning the knob clockwise the pulse wave gets a little dusty sounding.

When you set the cutoff and peak on filter all the way to 10 it gets a little quiet. If cutoff is set below peak it's pretty normal sounding. Someone told me deoxit might be all those pots need but I will leave it to an expert."

Deep Chase III

Published on Jul 29, 2017 raycastile

"I wanted to feature the SCI Pro One in a video, and this kind of piece is pretty idiomatic of the synth. I wasn't thinking of anything in particular when I created this, but afterward I thought it sounded like a cross between Deep Red (Goblin), Chase (Moroder) and Halloween III (Carpenter/Howarth). So that is why I called it Deep Chase III."

New Synth Coming from PPG

Something new is developing at PPG Published on Jul 29, 2017 WPalmWT

"A short teaser of my new synth
Thanks to Jean-Luc Nest for the beautiful sounds"

PPG of course is Wolfgang Palm, maker of the original line of PPG hardware synths, and the more recent iOS and software synthesizers based on the classic PPG wavetable synthesis and more. My guess is this will be a new software or iOS synthesizer, but you never know of course...

"A story about noise and sound
Thanks to #nachtsmeer# for the lyrics"


In the beginning there was noise

Pink noise

Structured noise

In time, from noise came individual sine waves.

Some of these sine waves were louder, others quite.

Some had low frequencies others frequencies were high.

The sine waves grouped together in various amplitudes and frequencies.

Together they created fundamentals, then formed partials, overtones and harmonics.

and in conclusion we journey on to the

Moog White Elephant SN 2148 Minus Outer Shell Case

via this auction

Note the case does appear to come with this one as you can see in the bottom image. The majority of pics, however, are without the case. I thought it was interesting to see what it looks like minus the case.  As you can see, this one does not appear to be in the best shape.  There are quite a few pics of the inside below.   Check out the 25 vertically standing boards on bottom.

Per the listing: "Not working, no legs, good fibreglass top.... Rare model, could not find any info on net about it so out she goes.

Too hard for me to restore as some keys don't work.

Worked ok 10 years ago when last switched on, in the garage since."

MOOG White Elephant CDX-0652 Cordovox Organ Demo

Published on Nov 21, 2010 PunchandJudyDuo

"Demo video of the Cordovox CDX-0652 Moog 'White Elephant' keyboard. This is an Italian combo organ manufactured by the Thomas Organ company in 1975. Thomas licensed the Moog Satellite and grafted it into the top tier of the organ. The monophonic synth and the organ can be used independently or together on the top tier and the bottom tier organ can also be split with a Moog bass on the left. We have enjoyed many keyboard demos on YouTube and thought that we should post this since there aren't many others... ***Be sure to watch our other videos to see the White Elephant and other keyboards in LIVE action!*** [For your copy of the debut CD by The Show FEATURING THIS KEYBOARD send $10 and a return address to: The Show P.O. Box 426 Enon OH 45323. Please make checks and money orders payable to Jessica Kinzer.] Thanks!"

modular synthesizer vs pot lid ambient session (mutable instrument ears, rings)

Published on Jul 29, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Yes, you read the title correct.. I connected a pot lid to my modular system, cookin' up some ambient tunes :)

Really, I have no idea what I am doing but it is great fun :D I recently got the Mutable Instruments ears, and also today bought a KORG CM-200 contact microphone to be able to add acoustic elements and textures for processing in the modular.. now this calls for a pot session right ? :)

Ears gets the audio signal from the CM200 microphone, which in turn sends audio to the MI rings, strumming is being done on a random fashion with the 2hp Turing Maching using a clock in maths.

1v/Oct in on the RIngs is quantized with the penrose, which has LFO in from the tides, on a slow rate.

/Odd/ channels from rings goes straight out to 1U mixer mixer, the other /Even/ goes into the morphagene which is in sound on sound mode and plays back everything it hears in reverse .. + some glitchy stuff.

Braids soundsource (drone) Maths is controlling the filter on the uVCF which the braids goes into.. . and the Ripples filter is in serial controlled by the second maths channel plus retriggered by the gate out from MI ears.

everything then goes into the EQD pedals + Keeley engineering reverb for FX treatment.

Oh, and at 03.55 I am humming/singing one note drones into the pot lid (now there is a sentence you don't read that often) .. none of the camera angles captured it, but this is what you hear if the sound sources might be a bit confusing :)

Booom, and be careful the track is very dynamic, listen to it on moderate volume the first time.. :)"

Thursdacid - a few Cirklon patterns for the Eurorack

Published on Jul 29, 2017 Luke Killen

"I've been ill with a virus this weekend, so rather than plan a complex patch, I decided to just punch a few patterns into the Cirklon and make some acid breaks with the CV BOB sequencing the Eurorack.

This video pretty much has the patterns playing back. Everything in this video is sequenced by the Cirklon and the Euro is doing all the synthesis. The Cirklon is also manually sending via MIDI to a reverb and a delay in my DAW."
