Desktop Hardware Version of SERUM in the works?

The top image is via @deadmau5 who mentions, "yeah yeah... you guys keep your skins :P"

The bottom image is of SERUM via XfferRecords (you can find previous posts featuring video demos of SERUM in the archives). You should be able to see the similarities between the hardware and software. The following is a quick recap on the software.

"The dream synthesizer did not seem to exist: a wavetable synthesizer with a truly high-quality sound, visual and creative workflow-oriented interface to make creating and altering sounds fun instead of tedious, and the ability to “go deep” when desired - to create / import / edit / morph wavetables, and manipulate these on playback in real-time.

Serum has a Wavetable editor built right in- you can create your own wavetables in a variety of ways. Import audio directly from audio files - Serum has a variety of methods and options for analyzing audio for breaking it apart into individual waveforms. You can import single-cycle wavetables of course, as well as many at once (with in-built sorting options, or manual re-ordering). Morph between various wavetables using standard linear interpolation (crossfading) or via harmonic/spectral morphing. Draw directly on the waveform, with optional grid-size snapping and a variety of shape tools. Generate or modify waveforms using FFT (additive). Create or process waveforms using formula functions. Processing menu options allow you to do the other tasks you would want, such as apply fades, crossfades, normalize, export, and much more..."

P.S. I created a new "Teasers" label for these moving forward. It's hard to believe I didn't see the need to create one before now... I added the label to the recent Behringer MS-101 post. Sometimes they are teasers, sometimes they are leaks. The label will apply to any gear not officially released.

Reminder: SNAZZY FX at Control Tomorrow, August 10 at 7 PM


Published on Oct 7, 2017 Control Synthesizers & Electronic Devices

"Dan Snazelle of SnazzyFX visits Control for an evening lecture and electronic music demonstration, with a special ear to five new modules released just this year (2017): HI_GAIN, KICK_ME, eternal spring, kitty eyes + dual Multiplier.

Dan started SnazzyFX in 2009. Among his first electronic devices were released were pedal (stomp) boxes at NAMM 2010 and he has designed for a number of formats since. But as Dan says, "It is not the format that matters but the ethos."

We hope this video gives you a taste of that ethos. To get deeper into SnazzyFX and the modules, try here:

+ visit us at Control to play the instruments i.r.l.

Control is a brick + mortar shop specializing in unique electronic music devices. Located at 416 Lorimer St. in Brooklyn, NY, we are open 7 days from 12-8pm. Stop by to get your hands on some of these electronic instruments and for one of our equally unique in-store events.
instagram @ctrlmod"




KICK_ME SNAZZY’S FIRST STEP INTO THE WORLD OF DRUM MODULES is two kicks in one: KICK A is pitch controllable and with 4 tweakable parameters can create a wide variety of kick styles, from tight rock kicks to blown out techno bass drums + KICK B features control of decay designed for MAXIMUM SUB-BASS.

KITTY EYES SNAZZY FX LOVES CHAOS. No, not chaos in the sense of everything going crazy, but chaos in the natural systems, dripping faucets, fractal sense. Kitty Eyes has most of the features of our bigger chaos modules but with a lower price and footprint. PURRFECT FOR EXPERIMENTING.

THE ETERNAL SPRING FILTER SNAZZY SAYS: ' WEIRD filter of my own design (not based on anything classic). Think of it as a character filter --- quite intense at some settings, while nice and acidic at others. Doesn't sound like any other filter I own...Adds harmonics in some regions while removing others. Has interesting non-linearity in the Q section which allows for instability, even chaos at some settings ! '

HI_GAIN Enter a world of trash. A world of scraping hi-hats, smashed up kicks, beautiful clipped white noise, broken file cabinets, disused railway cars...The HI_GAIN was designed to create noise, to pump up the hiss, to boost asymmetrical happiness for super acidic bass lines and more. Like other Snazzy FX modules, the HI_GAIN encourages play with capital P - cross couple/feedback/mix outputs/send CV. Repeat.

DUAL MULTIPLIER For quick creation of varied timbres, Snazzy's four quadrant multiplier is similar to the classic ring modulator with attenuation control over all four inputs, giving you tweakability to create a variety of effects: tremolo, pitched noise, vca capabilities, spectral shifts in vocal samples, analog computing patches +++


PPG Infinite Now Available

PPG Infinite has been released. You can find previous posts featuring demos here, and walkthrough videos from creator Wolfgang Palm himself, here.

Details via iTunes:
PPG Infinite - Wolfgang Palm

"At the end of the 70s Wolfgang Palm developed wavetable synthesis. This was very successful and used by many synthesizer companies in the 80s and 90s. But this technology has its limitations. The main reason is that all sounds are harmonic. In nature this does not happen very often. Many sounds like a piano string have small offsets from the harmonic frequencies. This is even stronger in sounds like bells or percussion.

Infinite overcomes this limitation.

via Landscape:

"STEREO FIELD is one instrument with three uses. It is simultaneously a stereo/quad modular touch plate synthesizer, a stereo/quad audio processor and a pressure sensitive chaotic CV controller. All three uses are available separately as well as simultaneously and in conversation with each other. The Stereo Field allows its user to manipulate and patch two analog stereo circuits via touch plates. By utilizing skin conductivity as new paths for current to follow you are creating new circuits and new sounds in relation to where your fingers are patching. The individual touch plates are directly connected to nearly every connection point of every component in its circuitry (located directly under each corresponding touch plate). When touched with multiple fingers it will create atonal analog synthesized audio with either of the two mirrored circuits represented by interlocking touch-plate circles. These parallel mirrored circuits can be finger patched separately or together yielding vastly different results in regards to texture, timbre and stereo imaging. This instrument has the ability to create atonal synth tones in stereo (and quad) as well as process incoming stereo audio (and quad) sources via 1/4" and 3.5mm ins and outs. Incoming audio sources can be "patched" or rewoven into any area of either or both of the circuits via skin contact. The two stereo input volume knobs (center) shape and effect distortion, drive amounts, internal feedback pitch, and modulation rates depending on how your fingers are patching. The quad inputs and outputs via the 3.5mm jacks have small touch plates leading to and from allowing for touch access of each of the 4 inputs and 4 outputs. If multiple audio signals are traveling into the Stereo Field these audio sources can be intermingled and can modulate one another, again depending upon where your fingers are patching. Sending CV signals into the 3.5mm input jacks will open up many more possibilities both in terms of synthesized sounds and audio processing. The Stereo Field can also be used as a controlled chaos source when using the 3.5mm outputs to send CV to your modular system. Due to the nature of feedback and finger patching the 4 available CV signals have the ability to get incredibly complex and textured in nature (see audio examples below in use with a euro-rack system). Because of the open nature of Stereo Field it can both send and receive CV modulation simultaneously. In addition, this can all be happening while your finger patching is changing and altering the incoming and outgoing CV while also processing incoming audio. These ins and outs can also be patched together with cables for sustained tones with the pitch/rhythm/volume/"cutoff" being affected by adjusting the incoming and outgoing volume knobs in various settings. Inter-patching in this way will also allow for sustained pulse beats and filter-esk sound shaping in addition to bringing new results to finger patching via the touch plates. Most importantly, processed audio and synthesized audio are available simultaneously with the ability to influence and modulate each other. This will often blur the lines between the two; who is manipulating who? who comes out on top as audio and who is modulation? This can be a constantly evolving cycle based upon where the performers fingers are placed and highly sensitive skin contact pressure changes.

Studio recording - Roland JX-8P synthesizer & Juno 6 / 2

Espen Kraft
Published on Jan 3, 2017

"A studio recording in session. Preparing the last track for my forthcoming synth-pop album due february 2017.
I'm auditioning sounds for the track while multitracking as well. Tonight I was going through the sweet Roland classics JX-8P, Roland Alpha Juno 2 and the Roland Juno 6 for sounds. All analog classics.

This album will be a homage to all my childhood synth heros, bands and artists that've inspired me throughout the years.

Some of the tracks will be instrumental, but most of them will have vocals in various degree.

Listen to more of my music on:

My tracks pay homage to all synth.pop acts of the 80'ies like Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, Ultravox, OMD, Euryhmics, Duran Duran, Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, A-ha and many more.

A use mostly old gear on my tracks and among them Roland Juno 6, Alpha Juno 2, D550 and JX-8P. Korg DW-8000. Roland TR-626 drum machine. Yamaha DX7 and TX802 and drum machine RX11. I use the Novation Mininova as a vocoder on all my tracks. Effects are usually handled by Strymon and TC electronics. Sampling is done on my E-MU ESI-4000 and I mostly use that for drums."

It reminds me very much of something Jan Hammer used on the show Miami Vice on several occasions. The other patch is a analog sounding brass patch with good implemenatation of both velocity and after-touch. Both patches have some modifications done by me, but I will not take credit for their original origin.

A kind of improvised performance and recording testing out the arpeggiators and sync of the Roland Juno 6 and Korg DW-8000. Played the melodic part with a Yamaha DX7. The DX can sound very warm and analoge in my opinion with careful programming. Used Strymon BigSky for the reverbs and a T.C. electronic Flashback for delays. Drums provided by Roland TR-626."

ROLAND SH-101 + KORG ER-1 ~ Will They Pair? Ep.21

Published on Aug 9, 2017

"Pairing the Roland SH-101 with a Korg ER-1. The SH-101 is a vintage analog monophonic synthesizer from the 80s. The ER-1 is a digital drum machine from the 90s. Together they ooze vintage 90s techno/house vibes which I explore in this video. I'm largely using preset patterns on the ER-1. The ER-1 is outputting MIDI clock which I then convert into CV and feed into the clock input of the SH-101 to synchronize the sequencer. The SH-101 is then run through the ER-1 via its external audio input."

Frap Tools SAPÈL teaser

Learning Modular
Published on Aug 9, 2017

"I’m so happy with the Frap Tools SAPÈL Tamed Random Source that I wanted to share a little preview of it before I finished my normal 'training' videos on it.

This is an otherwise-boring arpeggio animated by three of the random voltage streams from one half of a SAPÈL: the quantized 'n+1' stream (the green trace) is controlling the tuning interval between a pair of PWM’d square wave oscillators; the quantized “2n” stream (the blue trace) is selecting the “vowel” on the LimaFlo Motomouth formant filter; the smoothly fluctuating stream (the pink trace) is controlling the cutoff of a Moog Mother-32 LPF between the oscillators and the Motomouth.

I’ll be releasing a few movies about the SAPÈL at the end of August that goes much deeper, including probability distribution, random triggers, and more."


Published on Aug 9, 2017

"in this video, we take a look at using a bunch of SNAZZY FX modules with the sequencer to create some "out there" sounds. The Hi_GAIn, Kitty Eyes, and Eternal Spring Filter all work very well together, and make exploration of noise, chaos, super aggressive trash, and subtle dirt quite simple. In this video we are using the Hi GAIN to process one percussion sound (from the ERICA SYNTHS PICO DRUMS) and the multiple ins and outs on the HI GAIN are being used for feedback loops and cross coupling as well as cv in and out with the Eternal Spring Filter AND with the Kitty Eyes jacked in as well. Also, we are using the KICK_ME as the foundation.

With this video we are trying to show how easy it is to bring a wide range of NEW sounds into your system. And though we kept the results dry, it would be very easy to patch the output of the HI_Gain into the Wow and Flutter delay or into a reverb. SNAZZYFX.COM"
