4ms Stereo Triggered Sampler (STS) + 2017 Prototypes

Published on Aug 18, 2017 4mspedals

"Made with the Stereo Triggered Sampler from 4ms Company --- AVAILABLE NOW!


• mono mode
• left side triggered by QCD pattern. Length and start position modulated by slow QCD out and its inverted QCDexp output. (1voct pitch offset by SMR 1voct out)
• right side plays dub-like rhythm. Play is triggered by QCD output. Sample CV is modulated by QCD, to alternate between kick and upbeat stabs. Play length is modulated by PEG red side, which is clocked to QCD.

Spherical Wavetable Navigator:
• 6x oscillators play at various octaves and are brought in via its mixer section.
• Wavetable depth, longitude and latitude are modulated by 3x of the 6x LFO outs.
• Chord progression achieved by using transpose knob.
• SWN mixed into both STS channels via VCAM.

All channels mixed to mono and sent to Tapographic Delay (TD) via VCA Matrix (left side of STS dominates the mix). TD is clocked to red side of the PEG (which is tied to the main clock coming from QCD). TD is set to pitched delays and its stereo outputs are sent to LISTEN FOUR output mixer in channels 3 and 4."

Vintage Rheem Kee Bass Combo Organ/Bass Synth w/ Case

via this auction

"Vintage 1960's Rheem Kee Bass combo organ/bass synth. This is an awesoe sounding bass keyboard that is in great condition. Super smooth with huge low end thanks to the "Bass Boost" slider. Can get gritty with the built in Fuzz. Works great with the exception of the upper position of the Sustain and Percussion mode switch. We have another one of these that works perfectly, and honestly, there isn't much of a difference between the two settings anyway. Sounds great as is or would likely be a pretty simple fix. This is really one of my favorite bass keyboards and the tone sits perfectly in any track. Plus, it's about the coolest looking keyboard I've ever seen."

Qu-Bit Pulsar Burst Generator

Published on Aug 18, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"In the first patch, the Qu-Bit Pulsar acts as a simple gate sequencer with some additional tricks. Each output drives a different element of the patch: a bass sequence and hat sound, a kick, a cowbell/rimshot sound, and a simple melodic sequence. Gradually unmuting the sequences channel by channel, a polyrhythmic groove is revealed. Turning on "gravity" for the melodic channel creates spinning, off-kilter melodic variations at literally the push of a button.

In the second patch, the Pulsar's four channels provide timing information for four pitches from the QuBit Chord module. Each channel runs at an independent clock rate, made visible with the LED ring around the Pulsar's primary encoder. Turning on "Gravity" from the Global Page activates a burst-like response from all channels, creating several cascading, phasing blips that form their own minimalist rhythmic structures and melodies. Pressing the length encoder from the Global page stops all channels once they have completed their respective cycles.

The third patch is another "gravity"-laden patch, this time featuring percussive sounds: a hat, snare, and kick. In this patch, the kick and snare trigger channels are set to automatically loop, but the hat channel is only triggered via the external burst function. By setting up the unutilized channel at a long clock division and patching it into the module's own burst input, the hat channel is made to trigger a string of pulses only periodically, rather than on a constant loop. "Gravity" is again engaged from the Global Page, making for whiplash-inducing accelerations and sudden stops from individual channels shifting in and out of sync with one another.

MOOG MEMORYMOOG PLUS Polyphonic Analogue Synth SN 2872

via this auction

"'The Rolls Royce of polyphonic synths' - JM Jarre.

For sale in superb working order and excellent condition. Our tech has just recapped the power supply and recalibrated the synth, but no further work was necessary.

This is a monster of a synth - like six Minimoogs in one with separate filters for each voice, VCO sync, sample and hold... The unison mode can stack up to 18 oscillators for thunderous monophonic bass and lead sounds. Our engineer's favourite synth also. More info from the net below.

The previous owner had maintained this synth very well - all necessary internal upgrades and service work had been carried out to a high standard and the synth auto-tunes every time on start up. We have recapped the power supply and given it a thorough check over and it is working extremely well.

There are a few dings and marks to the wooden parts and a couple of dents/bumps to the aluminium case - at some point it appears to have had impact damage to the wooden corners - but otherwise this synth is in exceptional condition for its age.

The Midi on these is very basic and many people choose to upgrade the Midi capabilities."

flatchouse - a 120BPM acid house patch for eurorack synthesizer.

Published on Aug 18, 2017 Luke Killen

"This is a flatulent acid house beat. The acid is utilising a WMD/SSF Spectrum which is being modulated in a few ways by the SSF Ultra-Random Analogue filtered through a Epoch Modular Twin peaks VCF. Sequenced by Rene. I really wanted to give the Acid line a Dry breathy sound rather than a classic wet acid style. The noise from the Ultra Random Analogue helps give that character. The twin beaks also has some of the Ultra-Random Analogue output from Channel A at a high rate to mix with the Spectrum."

Available at ZenSound:

"Electrons II is the second volume from my best-seller soundset Electrons I.

This soundset is about cinematic, enigmatic and moogish analog electronica from the 80s.

Electrons II is formed by hi-tech scientific sequences and arps, powerful basses and bassloops, suspenseful percussion loops, captivating keys and leads, otherworldly synths, dark dystopian soundscapes, sequenced atmospheres and science fiction effects.

This soundset is a creativity box designed for all flavours of electronica compositions — with a dramatic or a chilled edge.
This makes of Electrons II ideal to fill inspiration gaps or simply to discover new musical ideas for your compositions.

Of course like the predecessor, Electrons II is formed by 256 patches — all of them responsive to velocity and modwheel."

Blofeld & K-Board - The Storyteller - pads & atmos

Published on Aug 18, 2017

"I bought a few months ago the #KeithMcMillen #KBoard thinking to take it with me on the road.

Didn't know entirely that this is a very interesting controller, but with a moody personality. If sometimes everything is OK with it, other times the K-Board can go crazy: buttons are not responding well (see later in video), notes are getting stuck etc, but nothing that cannot be resolved with a reset or a reconnection to the computer. And that's why I wanted to sell it a few times!

But everytime I connect the K-Board to #Blofeld or Roland JU-06, I see the great capabilities through its #Press, #Tilt, #Velo features. Especially with Blofeld, where we have a matrix of routings and this way you can blend almost perfectly with the K-Board.

In this video I'm showing a few pads and atmospheric & fx sounds from The Storyteller preset bank I made a while ago.

Intellijel Quad VCA Walkthrough

Published on Aug 18, 2017 intellijel

"This video provides an overview of the Quad VCA with some useful tips on how to use VCAs in general. The Intellijel µVCA utilizes a similar architecture, so you can take advantage of many of these features using both modules.

Quad VCA: Quad voltage controlled amplifier and cascaded mixer

The Quad VCA is a compact and feature packed module that is sure to find its way it almost all of your patches. In addition to being used for standard VCA duties it can also be used as a mixer and signal booster.


Manual LEVEL control per VCA which is convenient when using the module as a mixer or for biasing when CV modulating the VCA with a bipolar LFO.
Dedicated CV attenuators with dual color LEDs for monitoring bipolar CV signals.
Continuously adjustable response from linear to exponential per VCA.
Each CV input is normalled to the adjacent one for cascaded control.
Each output is normalled to the mix input of the adjacent one which allows you to use adjacent sets as submixes or the fourth output can be used as a master mix output when none of the other outputs are patched.
Each VCA has a boost switch that increases the output level by approximately +6dB (double)."
