"Echo" with Roland Jupiter 8, Jupiter 6, Juno 60, Juno 106, and MSQ-700

Published on Oct 17, 2017 Machiwoomiapoo

"'Echo' with Roland Jupiter 8, Jupiter 6, Juno 60, Juno 106, and MSQ-700

I was playing with the Jupiter 6 and the TC Electronics Flashback pedal on the Ping setting and I discovered this rhythmic idea. Then I added the Juno 60 with an arp style patch which was plugged into the TC Electronics Alter Ego x4 on the Copycat setting (later the Rev setting) and then plugged into the TC Electronics T2 pedal on the VII setting. Next I used the Juno 106 with some serious release going through the vintage Roland DEP-5 on setting 31 for a little Echo effect. Finally, I plugged the Jupiter 8 through the Eventide Timefactor on the "Lost" setting and the Eventide Space on the "Blackhole" setting. I used the Juno 106 and Jupiter 8 for the solos. I wanted to experiment with the "Echo" settings on the pedals. What do you think? Thanks for watching! Please subscribe, share, leave feedback, and let me know about your music as well! I enjoy listening to everybody else's music on YouTube too. Keep up the great work. You are all very inspirational. Take care, Sam."

New Divide & Conquer & Sly Grogan from nonlinearcircuits

divide & conquer plus a sly grogan Published on Oct 17, 2017 cirtcele

"Just a patch based around the Divide & Conquer, the Sly Grogan is fairly evident as well."

Divide & Conquer via nonlinearcircuits

"This module is intended to be a companion module for the Bindubba Sequencer."

SLY GROGAN via nonlinearcircuits

"SLY GROGAN is an envelope generator based on the design in Electronotes #86. It can produce a wide variety of different envelopes and bursts, perhaps most interesting is the ability to have the envelopes ringing after the attack stage. It also works well as a voltage controlled LFO, tho the module is neither a LFO nor a regular ADSR.
Please note: it no longer contains a VCA, this was dropped in favour of tapping the extra outputs (2&3)."

Percussa SSP GUI Layout #2 - Kickstarter update

Published on Oct 17, 2017 PERCUSSA

"Short video while testing the GUI code for the Percussa SSP on the computer (no sound). To change the parameter values we use the Percussa Remote control surface which is connected through USB to the computer."

Update via the kickstarter:

"Last week I finished updating my mechanical design and took the changes I made back into my PCB Layout software. I then updated the position of the components in the PCB layout. I managed to include a second USB host port on the SSP and made some room by rotating them 90 degrees. I also decided to move the SD card slot closer to the CPU module to facilitate the routing and shorten the distance the SD card traces have to travel (which is good for reliability).

I'm now busy updating the layout, re-routing traces, moving a few of the power supplies on the board, updating component values, etc. When I'm done with this second pass of the layout and it all looks good I'll be going through my (long) todo / checklist to see what else needs to be done or checked. If nothing major needs to be done in the layout I'll be running the DRCs (design rule checks) in my software, correcting any errors that come up, running the design by our manufacturer and preparing board files for production so we can get prototypes built. I hope to be done with the layout in 1-2 weeks. I’ve also sent over the mechanical drawings of the front panels to our CNC subcontractor to discuss the production of prototypes.

Past week, Celine continued the GUI code design work for the SSP, and made the following updates:

1) button layout at the right-hand side of the screen.

2) parameter values of the LFO and Envelope Generator module are now plotted on vertical graphs.

3) the vertical graph is also shown next to the text in large font when turning one of the encoders.

4) layout and position of the ADSR envelope

Below you can see a short video while she’s testing the GUI code on her computer (no sound). To change the parameter values she uses the Percussa Remote control surface which is connected through USB to her computer.

Thanks again for your support and until next update!

Center Square Music Stereo CEM Filter Rack Modules Featuring Dual Curtis VCF CEM3328

via this auction

"These are single rack space modules consisting of a pair of 24db/oct low pass filters using Curtis CEM3328 synth filter chips. These are great sounding, musical filters with the special feature of consistent volume across resonance settings.

These modules have balanced/unbalanced inputs and unbalanced outputs. There are CV inputs for frequency and resonance on each channel, and a stereo link switch to have the knob settings from channel one operate channel 2 (the CV freq. input also carries over, but the res. CV control jack does not so you need to use a multiple if you want identical CV on the resonance input).

High-quality parts used through-out (Nichicon and Nippon caps, etc). These are professionally designed, assembled, and wired. Uses quality double-sided pcb's.

The only thing I would say is not professional quality are the control decals. I used water-slide decals so they will last and have a low profile, but they don't look nearly as good as proper screen printing or engraving methods in my opinion."

Moog Prodigy Vintage Analog Synth with all CV Inputs SN 11611

via this auction

"Moog Prodigy analog synthesizer. It is the rarer version with all of the CV inputs for controlling its parameters eternally from modular synths or pedals. This thing sounds phenomenal and works perfectly apart from 2 keys refiring envelopes occasionally, but this is a quick fix that generally just requires cleaning the key contacts (tutorials can be found online, otherwise a repair guy can do it in an hour or less.)

Nothing has a SYNC sound like the prodigy. It is so gnarly, something that totally sets it apart from others like the minimoog."


via this auction

"The VX-600 is a polyphonic 12 VCO matrix synthesizer just like the Oberheim Xpander. It has 6 individual outputs for each voice and the keyboard has velocity and aftertouch! All of its components are through hole discrete. This synth is built like a tank and its portable. I popped the hood to show the condition of the components. I also took out one of the beautiful voice cards to show off the CEMs. This VX-600 still has all of its presets, there are a couple really good string pads and unison bass patches..."

Kozepz and Weinglas at Noodlefest

Published on Oct 17, 2017 Wein Glas

"After an earlier collaboration this year, their album FRNDS, Weinglas and Kozepz got the opportunity to perform a live set together for the very first time at Noodlefest 2017, V2, Rotterdam.

Part 04 - phases and tines (stay tuned for more!)

In these times of often unwanted changes it is good to have something steady: Like friends all over the world. So what can be better than two friends from the Netherlands and Germany collaborating to make international noises for one world. Noisemakers kozepz and weinglas are making the world a better place! Even if this means that we all have to listen to their dark soundscapes and aural pollutions first."

"so this is my first attempt at a circuit based synth. it makes some horrible noises. that's why it's called 'do capacitors dream of electric death?', it sounds like electricity trying to die.
i don't know if it's really useful (the intro tune was a quick little something i made up in Sunvox with noises only from the synth.) But i'm quite happy with it's overall aesthetic and well, since it's my first attempt at anything like this i'm just glad it worked and ended up making noises :P

New Vindor ES1 Saxophone Style Wind Instrument & Controller on Kickstarter

via the Kickstarter campaign:

"At Vindor, we believe that anyone can make music. Playing music should be affordable, accessible and fun for everyone.

That's why we designed the Vindor ES1. It's an electronic saxophone that is easy to play, fun, and inspires creativity.

Playing music develops cognitive, motor, and emotional skills. It also builds confidence and encourages everyone from kids to adults to express themselves.

The Vindor ES1 is:

Affordable. For less than $200, the Vindor is cheaper than buying or renting a saxophone, flute or clarinet.
Relevant to all ages. Lightweight and tough, the Vindor ES1 is designed to be played by adults and children over six years old.
Satisfying to play. By digitally producing tones, the Vindor ES1 eliminates the squeaks and squawks that frustrate beginners.
Creative. With a unique sound, quick response, and four-octave span, the Vindor ES1 gives you the flexibility to be inventive and to experiment.
Mobile. Lightweight, compact and with a built-in rechargeable battery you can play the Vindor ES1 anywhere.
Quiet when needed. You can play the Vindor ES1 with headphones to play or practice in peace (and out of earshot of roommates, parents, neighbors).
Connected. Use it as a controller for software instruments and with music apps like GarageBand on desktops, tablets and smartphone.

The way you press the Vindor's buttons to make different notes is the same as a saxophone. We have eliminated a few advanced keys to simplify the playing experience. Even though saxophones are bigger, what each finger does is identical in both the Vindor and saxophone.

The Vindor also has corresponding sound and fingering to a flute or a clarinet."

1. The Stylophone Gen X-1: The Theme from Toast of London

"Here is Matt Berry's 'Take My Hand,' otherwise known as the theme from Toast of London realized entirely via multitracking an analog Stylophone Gen X-1 over drums.

The Gen X-1 is a shockingly versatile Stylophone at the same time as being a delightfully fun analog synthesizer.

Of course, you should also check out Toast of London if you can view it on television, or on Netflix if you cannot. Not only is it sublime comedy, but Matt Berry's accompanying music is fantastic... and not just because it is often analog-synth-laden.

nonlinearcircuits Hyperchaos Deluxe

hyperchaos deluxe1 Published on Oct 17, 2017

"Hyperchaos Deluxe as the centre of a patch controlling a thru0 VCO, VCF, Timbre and a Bong0."

via nonlinearcircuits

"Hyperchaos Deluxe is based on the description in A UNIQUE SIGNUM SWITCH FOR CHAOS AND HYPERCHAOS by C. Li et al and is an expansion of the circuit used in Primal Hyperchaos.

There are 10 different CV outputs and 2 gate outputs. The CV IN is associated with the CLIMAX pot which determines how high the peaks go. The module can be greatly influenced by the CV in signal and can exhibit some fairly nutty responses at times.

The Rate input can be used in a few different ways:
1. With nothing patched in the circuit operates in slow mode
2. With a cable patched in, but its other end hanging loose, the circuit operates in fast mode.
3. Feed a gate signal to the Rate input and the circuit will vary between fast and slow modes (gate high = slow)
4. Feed a fast clock signal and you can get the circuit to operate at different speeds. This is quite dependent upon the frequency of the incoming clock and can take some tweaking to get right. If the clock is too fast it will mainly appear to be in slow mode.

Probably 3 is the best option as you can have the CVs cruising along and then suddenly going nutso when the gate ends."
