"Several instances of KORG MONOLOGUE all gone through different reverb algorithms of LEXICON PCM-60. Not add FX only summed up panned and faded in Cubase 9.0.
Monologue is playing:
Bass drum, bass, noise hh. The upper arpeggio is doubled: 1 is panned a bit to the and the other sound a bit to the right.
I must admit that I would not have expected such a huge enhancing effect on the whole track!"

"This is the video I originally put up on my modular channel. The E352 is a new module from Syntech, building on the best parts of previous modules by featuring wavetables and unison stacking or "clouds".

On top of that you can load in your own waveforms. There's a lot packed into this module and it's still quite user friendly."

26 10 17 Scrotum Lab - Radio Music abstrakt

Published on Oct 27, 2017 batchas

"Having some fun with the Radio Music module = complete new tones for my modular!

All sounds = one Radio Music module + some reverb and some delay added in Logic.
Morphing Terrarium generates the clock which drives Radio Music.
In the first excerpts it's a QuadSine oscillator which changes the clock coming from the Morphing Terrarium.
In the next ones, the joystick drives/changes:
- the clock speed of the Morphing Terrarium
- sample selection on Radio Music
- pitch on Radio Music
- delay time on PT Delay

I know, I could have changed the dressing on my finger!
And also I should not move the camera, mostly when it's not on auto-focus. Mea culpa."

♡ Hello bbz! So this is my Halloween viddy for 2017 - it's my take on the "Stranger Things" opening title theme.

"Stranger Things" is one of my fav shows, and of course I love the soundtrack so much - which is why I had the idea for composing a theremin accompaniment.

The original "Stranger Things" theme is by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.

Hope you enjoy the video, and until next time - stay strange.

Love, Clara xx

Stranger Things Soundtrack - Divalvi Live Remix

"Stranger Things Soundtrack remix!

When I watched the tv show and heard the main theme, I instantly fell in love with those arps and synths (who didn't?!), and knew I had to do something!

This is my live remix/reinterpretation of the song, made with my live set up. It's a relatively spontaneous take, so if you guys like it, let me know and will release a final version of this remix :)

UPDATE: Since a few people asked, I uploaded the full song for download on ;)


Throbbing Gristle Tiptop Audio Event

via Throbbing Gristle

"Throbbing Gristle in association with Industrial Records, Mute, Tiptop Audio and Rough Trade are pleased to announce a TG 40th Anniversary Q&A + signing + live TG modular performance by Chris Carter on Wednesday, 1st November 2017, from 7:00pm at Rough Trade East, London.

Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti from Throbbing Gristle will be appearing in person at the Rough Trade East to celebrate the vinyl release of the 40th Anniversary edition of their debut album The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle, released 3rd November on Mute.

Chris Carter will be starting the evening off with a performance using the forthcoming special edition TG-ONE Eurorack Module, created by Tiptop Audio and featuring sound libraries on cards newly created by Chris.

Chris Carter will be starting the evening off with an improvised performance using a modular setup consisting of prototypes of a brand new collaboration with Tiptop Audio. Chris has been working with Tiptop Audio on the forthcoming special edition TG-ONE Eurorack module, which includes two exclusive cards of Throbbing Gristle samples. Chris Carter has curated the sounds from his personal sonic archive that spans some 40 years. Card one consists of 128 percussive sounds and audio snippets with a second card of 128 longer samples, pads and loops. The sounds have been reworked and revised, modified and mangled by Carter to give the user a unique Throbbing Gristle sounding palette to work wonders with. In addition to the TG themed front panel graphics, the module features customised code developed in collaboration with Chris Carter.

The performance will be followed by an ‘in conversation’ and Q&A session with Daniel Miller, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Chris Carter. A signing session will end the evening.

The new Throbbing Gristle releases of The Taste Of TG on red vinyl, the seminal 20 Jazz Funk Greats on green vinyl and the 40th Anniversary edition The Second Annual Report (see below) on white vinyl will be available to pre-order or in store, as well as the re-released CD versions.

#01 modular playing with | make noise pressure points & 2hp switch

Published on Oct 27, 2017 Elinch

"from the first setup with the make noise pressure points and the 2hp switch as the only sequencer.

first pp & brains sequenced mutable instruments rings (into mutable instruments clouds) and synthesis technology e 330 in morph mode (dreadbox gamma, dreadbox delta). the trigger comes from dreadbox theta. the pp works as a 12 step sequencer, the 2hp switch switches between the 4step sequences (cv controlled by an intellijel quadra envelope). the first pressure output controls rings brightness, the second rings structure, the third clouds freeze and the fourth clouds blend parameter.

second pp controls dreadbox omikron (vcl vcf 74, intellijel uvca, intellijel quadra).
the first pressure output triggers dreadbox gamma (intellijel uvca / 4ms dld).

recorded live with tascam dr 100. no audio processing.
for the best listening experience listen to the video with headphones or good speakers."

Dr. Dave Luce's Polymoog Restoration #1 (by Synthpro)

Published on Oct 27, 2017 synthpro

"Hey Guys,

I'm very excited to share this project with all of you, It has been an amazing experience getting to restore polymoogs that belonged to the inventor. I can't put into words how amazed and honored I was to meet Dr. Dave's family, truly amazing people!

It was also very special getting to stay at the Luce house and working in the basement lab where I'm sure Dr. Dave worked on a lot of amazing engineering projects over the years.

Thank you Dave, you made a huge mark on this earth and I'm extremely grateful to be a part of what you created, in some ways you shaped my future. Without the polymoog, I'm not sure if I would have ever got as involved with electronics and sound development as I have, it changed my life all because of the one instrument you created. Rest in Peace my friend you will be missed by millions but the legacy you left behind continues to grow.

For more info regarding Dave Luce, here is his memorial site, some great reads and photos:

Here is a link to Ben and Janice Luce's album, "The Desert Suite""

Dave Luce passed away on April 15 of this year.

Mystic Circuits - 0HP OR Gate

Published on Oct 27, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's another fantastic little accessory "must have" from Mystic Circuits with the 0HP OR Gate. Much like the Vactrol LPG [posted here] this is amazing for the use of space (zero in the rack, hence 0HP) and the little devices feel sturdy and secure hanging from the cables. In the video I cover merging gates/clocks/rhythms and also half wave rectifications and merging fluctuating CV both random and cycling (LFOs)."

Chill track with MS-20, monologue, Mopho, Virus, Volcas, X5DR and Novation KS4 + EMX-1

Published on Oct 27, 2017 Arrayzable

"Second track of three. The MS-20 mini plays the leading role as usual and also gets time to do some sound effects.
The Access Virus Indigo plays an arpeggio on and off through the track.
Volca Bass plays the deep round bass sequenced by the Electribe EMX-1.
The EMX-1 also sequences the Korg X5DR for pling sounds and strings. The EMX-1 also plays both drums and some other synth parts via it's own synth engine.
The Mopho is 'lending' the midi signal going to the Volca Bass playing an arpeggiated bass line.
Novation KS4 is playing a FM-bell-ish sound.
Monologue is playing a more vital role this time, as it assists the MS-20 in a two part harmony but also gets to do some soloing of it’s own.

Trackname: ‘Lewis’

Used in this track:
MS-20 mini (through Zoom MS-70CDR)
Access Virus Indigo
DSI Mopho
Korg X5DR
Volca Bass
Volca Beats
Novation KS4

Roland Juno 60 Chorus vs. Roland SDE 2500 Chorus

Published on Oct 26, 2017 Rüdiger Gaenslen

"Comparison between the Roland SDR 2500 Chorus effects and the Juno 60 internal chorus. The SDE-2500 is the last of the vintage Delay rack series beginning with SDE-2000, following SDE 1000, SDE 3000 and finally SDE 2500 from 1983. The SDE 2500 has 64 RAM, which include 16 presets, most delays. But you also can modulate the effects to nice Chorus and Flanger Sounds. Here I played the 5 internal chorus presets against the 2 internal Juno chorus settings.

I did not use any additional effects, mastering, eq and any else."
