Expressive E Touché With UVI Workstation Presets

Published on Sep 19, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"In this video, we explore how the Expressive E Touché can be coupled with a MIDI keyboard to act as a next-generation source of musical expressivity. Branching past the simple pitch bend/mod wheel paradigm, the Touché offers multidimensional control over whatever musical parameters you desire, even all at the same time. Here, we explore the Touché along with some of its bundled UVI Workstation presets. Created using UVI's Falcon, these sounds range from airy, crackly pads and searing leads to throbbing basses and beyond.

"BENJOLIN a DIY melodic noise making synth machine thingie. designed by rob hordijk.

Search it up and you can find a PCB. or even a pre made module! there are a few variants but they are all the same in principle.

Check at the end where the benjolins are talking to the special stage systems MING MECCA. which is truly a crazy trigger source/game/visual module

Its really a snazzy machine. with pre patching inside of it, every part effects another part! its all intertwined. making it a really interesting and un predictable thing to use! which can make some nice patterns and stuff!"

Moog Sub 37 Upgrade Path to Subsequent 37 Features In the Works

If you are a Moog Sub 37 owner you will be able to upgrade to the Subsequent 37 feature set. Note this is a hardware update. Via Moog:

"We recently released the Subsequent 37, an updated version of an already wonderful instrument in the original Sub 37 (’s Gold Award winner for 'Best Hardware' 2015, and 'Best Keyboard/Synth of 2016' from SoundOnSound). We hope that you will continue to enjoy your Sub 37 in light of the new Subsequent 37 release, as they are both excellent tools for creative expression, each with their own sonic flavor.

If you feel that you would prefer the features of the Subsequent 37 over the features of your original Sub 37, we will be offering an upgrade option for existing Sub 37 owners (we’ll need a little time to get the parts together). You can signup below to receive an email once the full details are available. In the meantime, please continue to enjoy your Sub 37—it is a fantastic instrument on its own merit and will bring you countless hours of enjoyment.

Your friends at Moog"

Hypersynth Xenophone Advanced Analog Mono Synthesizer - White Edition with Stand

via this auction

"Xenophone is an advanced analog mono-synth with 100% analog signal path. It has three oscillators, two subs, four ring modulators, one multimode VCF and analog distortion, all based on discrete analog circuits followed by a high quality stereo digital delay and reverb. The extensive modulation capabilities of the sound engine plus the warm and unique character of Xen's filter enriched by built-in analog distortion make it the best choice for creating deep basses, aggressive leads, transparent and crisp synth lines, acid sequences, complex arpeggios, punchy percussive sounds, extreme SFXs and more. Besides the synthesis capabilities, it can be used as a powerful audio processor to colorize an external input signal by analog filter, distortion and DFX."

"Created for the Noise Engineering blog. See the blog post and interview here:

Triggering the Noise Engineering Loquelic Iteritas Percido and the Moog DFAM with a Make Noise Tempi, Maths, and an Erica Synths Pico Trigger. Signals are combined into a Pico Logic in "OR" mode, with one channel triggering the DFAM and the other to the LIP. Bass swells are from a Make Noise DPO, processed in stereo by a modDemix, and using Function for the envelope with its EOR triggering the chord changes on a Morphagene, containing some splices of my Fender Rhodes."

Synthesis Technology - E352 2 Op FM Acid Electro Jam

Published on Sep 19, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's a jam with the E352 from Synthesis Technology (or Synth Tech). By now I'm sure you know the module is awesome and if not check out the links other E352 videos below.

Here I'm using the E352 in 2 Op FM mode with the FM modulation shown on the Mordax DATA oscilloscope next to the module. I've mixed a looping envelope and faster more percussive envelope before modulating the FM index (depth of modulation). There's also an accent out of my sequencer going to FM Ratio (tuning difference) to accent certain notes with different tones of FM. There's also a a slow looping envelope into the wavetable modulation. These all come from the Qu-Bit Contour. The sequence is from the killer Stepper Acid from Transistor Sound Labs which you can see top right in the video (just). I'm playing the sequencer in terms of starting and stopping and also manually stepping through steps while stopped. The E352 goes through the ZVEX Fuzz Factory and you can see me move the dry/wet blend manually throughout (it's never that wet, just added a bit of hair and grit in places). That then goes onto the Make Noise Erbe Verb before going into the WMD Performance Mixer. The Performance Mixer has an inverted envelope (the WMD MME) going into it's level modulation to create the side-chained affect against the kick drum. The Kick is the KICK mode on Braids from Mutable Instruments, the Hi Hats are from Mutable Instruments Peaks and the clicky percussion is also from Peaks but put through the WMD Geiger Counter. The rhythms are generated from the Stepper Acid clock going into a Chaos Divider from Tsyklon Labs."

Korg Rhythm 55 Analog Vintage Drum Machine Demo (KR-55 )

Published on Sep 19, 2017 Sound Provider

"Quick demo of the Korg Rhythm 55 , it is another Drum machine we use for the Sound Provider Sound Banks.( )
Even if it s rather basic we like its punchy sounds and also the swing.
This version is modded with separate outputs for each sound and an Sync24 in.
Few words from Vintage Synth Explorer
"The KR55 was, for its time (1979), an advanced preset rhythm drum machine with up to 96 preset rhythm patterns! These patterns cover the whole gamut of presets (Waltz, Samba, Rhumba, Bossa Nova, Tango, Slow Rock, Swing, Rock, etc.). The KR55 also featured a "swing beat" control to add a variation to the groove. Each drum sound's level can be individually adjusted for each pattern. It can also be externally controlled via footswitch jack for the Start/Stop and Intro/Fill switches. The KR55B was a black-chassis version released a few years later in 1982 with twice as many rhythm patterns. It has been used by Jean-Michel Jarre, Trio and Depeche Mode."
