Imitation for Poly Evolver Keyboard

Published on Oct 26, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"A short improvisation using the style of "imitation" - repeating a melodic theme at different pitches and with variations. The highest development of imitation is a Fugue.

The piece was played on one keyboard - the eight-voice Poly Evolver; no bass pedals were used.

The patch uses a distinctive digital wave shape which is happily typical of the Evolvers. It is slightly raspy, due to the use of Audio Modulation, which adds to an otherwise transparent sound a greater definition of pitch. Otherwise, the lower notes seem to consist almost entirely of partials, with no apparent fundamental. The original wave shape (minus the Audio Modulation) has an ice cold crystal blue quality. Hence, the color of the instrument itself seems to be most fitting.

The picture was taken after a long night in the music room. The late hours allow for uninterrupted concentration unlike any other part of the day, as every artist appreciates.

Dawless Keystep Jam

Published on Oct 26, 2017 Jörg Schaaf

Jörg Schaaf is the man behind Radikal Technologies.

"This is a live studio improvisation Jam. I played the following instruments:
Keystep left: Spectralis
Keystep right black: D550
Keystep right white: DX-7II
Accelerator: JX-3P
Beatstep & Turbo Volcon: MKS-50
The modular synth plays an F on the swarm oscillator. The signal is fed into the RT-451 Filter and from there into the EFFEXX multi effect module.

I hope you enjoy the JAM ;-)"

Reckless Experimentation AM Modulation on the YM3812

Published on Oct 26, 2017 Reckless Experimentation Audio LLC

"Demonstration of the Reckless Experimentation Audio YM3812 Eurorack Synthesizer Module. This demo focuses on sound generated using AM modulation. By using this modulation type and changing the waveform, frequency multiplication, and feedback settings, many interesting sounds can be produced.

Demonstrated using only one voice for simplicity, all six voices can be configured this way for simultaneous sound generation."

DSI REV2 Patch with Strymon

Published on Oct 26, 2017 GEOSynths

"No particular point with this video, just wanted to record the sound, before moving bits around in my Studio. One of the patches I made for the REV 2 "Growing Pains" is an unusual sound, mainly due to the negative envelope amount and attack portion.

Just adding a bit of BigSky and Timeline, turns it into a Drone like patch...So, just one chord and few tweaks."

"Lo-Fi Sunset" Ambient Eurorack : Bemuda, Rings, Erica Wavetable, Instant Lo-Fi Junky

Published on Oct 26, 2017 Lost For Words

"A late evening patching using new (to me) modules Lo-Fi Junky and Erica Pico RND. Both really great at what they do.

Using every Pico RND(Random) output in this patch.

Left hand Bermuda is playing the 4 note loop sequenced by Yarns. A little noise goes from the RND into the PWM CV which gives a pleasing raspy distortion. Right hand Bermuda playing bass notes sequenced by O&C , as are Rings and the Wavetable VCO.

Wavetable VCO going into Pico DSP in stereo delay mode.

Lots of randomness (RND) and Maths stuff going on.

Reverb courtesy of Disting mk4. It's not as good as my usual 2hp Verb reverb but that's being swapped for a black plate version atm.

Everything goes into the Elektron Analog Heat on a tempered Rough Crunch setting.

Lo-Fi Junky is just a great effect. I used to own the pedal but it was a bit weak with my synths. This Eurorack version just make sense with this kind of setup.

Fell in love with the Bermuda, so I bought a second. Finding some sweet spots with the Wavetable VCO but it has a lot of harsh tones that I'm trying to find a way of modulating and taming to fit my style of music. Will persevere with it!"

Keeley Electronics Caverns Delay and Reverb - Roland JDXi Synthesizer

Published on Oct 26, 2017


Here's a clip of our Caverns Delay and Reverb paired with a Roland JD-Xi Synth."

Stranger Things.

And some info on the pedal:

"The New Caverns Delay Reverb V2 dual effect pedal combines delay and reverb for the perfect end to any pedal board. It features Keeley’s analog style tape delay with modulation options. The 650ms of warm delay combine with Spring, Shimmer or Modulated Reverb. Now with True-Bypass or Trails option. Because of its small and compact design, the New Caverns is a perfect fit for any fly-rig or small board where you have tight space requirements. The New V2 features Keeley’s most popular time-based effects, blended perfectly and fine-tuned over 2 years. It will be an amazing addition to any board.

The Reverb side of the pedal features 3 Cavernous sounds:

Spring Mode – Black Face Amp style spring reverb with F Style Tremolo
Modulation Mode – Choral modulation to the reverb for a huge, cavernous reverb
Shimmer Mode – Reverb with emphasis on octave-up voices in reverb trails
The Delay side of the pedal incorporates Keeley’s popular Magnetic Echo circuit, designed to emulate analog tape delay lines. Three way switchable modulation gives you options for adding Wow and Flutter to the repeats. Perfectly voiced echoes sit in the mix well, either clean or with distortion.

"Hey folks, on this episode I have the wonderful semi-modular synth '0-Coast' by Make Noise. I've had a small amount of time with this machine and I'm beginning to understand it. This is my first real play with any kind of Modular device.

This time I thought I'd jam one of my new tracks and replace the original bass with a bass patch on the 0-Coast. As you would expect from all great synths, the 0-Coast fits in easily. Although my tuning may be off slightly lol."

Kurzweil 250 RMX Synthesizer Rackmount SN 88030091

via this auction

Don't put your finger in the fan.

"Kurzweil 250 RMX (it's labelled as a 225 RMX which was identical to the Kurzweil 250 RMX except it had fewer sound blocks in it from the factory which actually makes this unit VERY RARE to find - there were only a few made with this labelling.)

It has all four factory sound blocks A, B, C and D

It has version 6 software.

It has 1 MB sampling RAM.

QLS works fine with this unit, easily transferring sound patches and sequences to the unit via a compact Mac Classic computer (any Mac with a GeoPort and QLS software installed will work ) - of course you'll need to procure the Mac computer, QLS software and RS422 to MINI DIN 8 cable if you want to use that (I can ship a floppy disc of QLS 3.8 if you'd like with the unit for free - just let me know upon purchase).

A new lithium 3.6 volt battery was recently installed.

The display has been replaced with a much more visible display - this is very cool!

The fan has also been replaced as seen in the photo, however the fan cover is missing (so you may want to find some mesh to cover the fan).

It has all the knobs - nothing is missing and needs nothing to work right out of the box."

SSSR Labs - Kotelnikov SM042

Published on Oct 26, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's the full overview demo of the lovely gritty, characterful oscillator 'Kotelnikov' from SSSR Labs. It's a mix of 8 bit and 12 bit wavetables alongside an on board transient generator and VCA for basic voice functionality, killer AM overtones, FM and smooth or stepped wavetable morphing. Would love to hear your thoughts so leave a comment and feel free to ask any questions.

00:51 Features / Overview
- oscillator, wavetables, morphing, transient generator, LFO, envelope shapes, AM, FM, VCA, volume control, wave banks, ins and outs, filter switching and modulation.

04:00 Wavetables
- a detailed look and scan through the wave banks and wavetables available. 8 bit banks and the HD 12 bit bank with licensed Electric Druid waves and more.

07:26 Riff, bassline and beats
- a little riff with sequenced wavetable modulation. This is an idea of how it might fit a basic synth riff and beats style patch.

08:03 Ambient patching and slower melodies
- this patch explores Kotelnikov as a slower moving melody over a chordal background with added FX.

10:21 Transient Generator & modulation inputs / internal routing
- using the TG as an oscillator, AM (gorgeous glassy audio rate overtones), FM, wavetable modulation, LFOs, retriggering, envelopes and more!

18:59 Sync input
- here we hit the sync input (which is a hard sync 'reset to the start / zero crossing') with audio for a series of sync overtones that merge into and grit to the wavetables."

All The Wrong Stations | Field Kit FX, Tape Loop, OP1

Published on Oct 25, 2017 HAINBACH

"Koma Elektronik lent me a prototype Field Kit FX and their new power solution for mobile music making. I took them all out to the Tempelhofer Flugfeld for some outdoors music making. NEW TAPE ALERT:

Field Kit FX:

Preliminary specs on the power thingie:
Two independent power lines with the following specs:
-adjustable voltage for each line (9V or 12V)

maximum output current:
~1,2A @ 9V (up to ~2,4 A with two power banks)
~0,9A @ 12V (up to ~ 1,8 A with two power banks)
Those output currents correspond to 2.4A @ 5V at the input, which is the maximum output current of most power banks.

Input current consumption displayed with an LED Bar. Allows to safely use power banks with various output currents.
Using HOSA Hopscotch cables for multiplying the signals and allow more complex FX routing."

Opposite Earth by Jeff Snyder, electronic version

Published on Oct 25, 2017 Jeff Snyder

"Opposite Earth by Jeff Snyder [of Snyderphonics]

This is an animated notation piece for an open instrumentation. It was written for PLOrk in 2016 and is intended to be performed by a combination of acoustic and electronic musicians, but this is a version that just uses electronic sounds. The graphic score is realized in javascript and the synthesis is all created using WebAudio.
The conductor changes the image components live to guide the course of the piece. For instance, the conductor can add and remove rings (performers), planets (pitches), and ticks (percussive sounds) at will. The color of the lines conveys which of five scales is used. Moons are played by the same performers that are handling the planet they orbit around.

Thanks to Drew Wallace for additional javascript magic!

If you want to try out controlling the piece yourself, visit

It's controlled with the computer keyboard and the mouse position.
` (the top left key below escape) selects all rings.
numbers 1 through 8 select individual rings.
9 makes rings visible or invisible.
0 adds or removes moons.
- adds or removes ticks.
p adds or removes planets
the arrow keys add or remove the "play" lines.
s, d, f, g, and h set the color of the next line you add (and therefore the scale)
z through / set the division of the ticks.
mouse X position is the size of planets - maps to decay time of notes.
mouse Y position is the blue/red color at the upper left hand corner of the screen. It maps to timbre, dark to bright.

For an interesting collection of information about animated notation works, check out Ryan Ross Smith's animated notation website."
