Introducing iOptigan! An Optigan for your iPad / iPhone In Collaboration with Stefan Stenzel of Waldorf

Published on Oct 31, 2017 optigandotcom

"In collaboration with Stefan Stenzel of Waldorf, we’re proud to announce iOptigan! It’s an Optigan on your iPad or iPhone, complete with all 40 original discs (25 included with app purchase, an additional 15 via in-app purchase) and all the scratchy lo-fi character and playability quirks of the original. What we didn’t include is all the headaches that tend to go along with the flaky old hardware!

As shown in the video above, you can setup iOptigan with a MIDI keyboard to approximate the playing experience of a real Optigan (chord buttons on the iPad, keys on the keyboard), but there are also additional ways to control iOptigan via MIDI as well as on screen. iOptigan faithfully emulates the unique playback characteristics of the Optigan, ie the “constant loop” of both the chord section and the keyboard. You also get tempo, reverb and balance controls that also behave as the original hardware."

iTunes: iOptigan - Stefan Stenzel

"This is the Optigan for iOS.

The Optigan, short for Optical Organ, was a chord organ from the early 1970’s. It is remembered today for its unique system of sound reproduction using optical discs. These LP-sized film discs were optically encoded with 57 concentric tracks, which contained loops of musical combos playing chord patterns in different styles. Each disc contained a specific style of music (Bossa Nova, Big Band etc) which the user could control by pressing the chord buttons. Changing the discs was as simple as putting a new record on your turntable. Think of it as the 1971 version of GarageBand.

Despite this novel technology, the scratchy sound of the Optigan left a lot to be desired.

The iOptigan we present here truthfully recreates that lo-fi sound.

25 of the original 40 discs are included, the remaining 15 can be purchased individually or all together in the Complete Pak.

Specifications and Features:
• Disc loading rigth-side-up or upside-down
• Spring Reverb (virtual)
• Optical Metronome
• Audio Demo for each Disc
• MIDI in/out
• MIDI chord detection
• MIDI File Import
• Sequencer with Record and Playback
• Sharing for songs as Audio and MIDI File
• iTunes File Sharing
• Inter-App Audio
• Smart background audio
• Help overlay
• Headphone optimised stereo (optional)
• Radio Mode for Chord Buttons or Keyboard
• Comfortable speed control in semitones or BPM"

Batchas - Remember

Published on Oct 31, 2017 batchas

"It’s been a long time since I wanted again a MIDI-to-CV converter. Got it today, added to it bananas and made an impro on the Serge Paperface.
One take. Direct stereo outs and then reverb added in Logic.

The patch can be seen here: [left]

The played notes we hear come from 2 oscillators: the NTO (variable output) goes to the Variable Bandwidth Filter (VCF2), the PCO (sine output) goes to the Wave Multipliers.

VCF2 and Wave Multipliers give this string touch to the sound.

[u]Outputs on the MIDI-to-CV interface[/u]:
GATE goes to ADSR - ADSR OUT goes into VCAs.
CV goes to 1V/oct input on both oscillators.
Pitch Bend goes to VC F on both oscillators.
Velocity goes to VC F on Variable Bandwidth VCF.

I love these moments, when the instrument is simultaneously translating in sound my feelings and what is happening in my mind. Like remembering an early existence…"

Ambient Modularsystem Session sequenced by SQ-1 and live playing via Squarp Pyramid

Published on Oct 31, 2017 Rickinger B.

"Hi friends, i've wanted to make a song only with my modularsystem.

The SQ-1 sequences the STO for the melody and triggers the Maths, that plays the rhythm sounds. The STO goes into the Clouds. I am playing via the pyramid the AJH MiniMod. The only external FX is the reverb and delay for the maths sounds. I hope you'll like it. Please tell me how you like it. Thanks."

For the bassline I used here the internal arpeggiator. All played by hand.

For me is the VS one of the best synthesizers ever. Digital waveforms in combination with an analog filter is the perfect combination for fantastic hybrid sounds."

"You know what this is... This is the most advanced, most elegant sounding Oberheim of them all.. The Matrix 12. Essentially TWO Xpanders with a fantastic keybed and such an amazing piece of eye candy. She purrs... she growls and so much more. Once you play it, you'll instantly recognize all those instant classic 80s sounds. Not many synth freaks have one.. most have never played one. This synth is not for the faint of heart. It delivers in every way.

This is the better Made in USA version, not the overseas inferior version. It was fully overhauled by a veteran analog synth tech. Recapped, tuned, new bushings, new battery, calibrated and tested over and over again to ensure years of usage to come. It sounds amazing, and it works as it should.. NO operational errors here. Plus as you can see from the pics.. it looks fantastic as well.

NOTE>>> This has the 12 output panel installed on the right side. It was installed at Oberheim way back in the day but the original owner opted to not have internal circuits installed for the 12 outs.. not sure why. You still obviously get the Left, Right and Mono outs working and sounding GREAT!.."

DIY Synth Jam #1 - SQK01 Arduino FM synth and Yamaha PSS-570

Published on Oct 31, 2017 DrummingEvil

"I was hacking together a little setup next to my desk, to see if something like it would be comfortable for synth recordings. Figured I might as well record a little improvisation :D

I used my SQK-01 prototype FM synthesizer and the Yamaha PSS-570, each routed through a Digitech RP80 FX pedal. I wanted to solely use my own creations, however the green synth (Dradique) you see isn't finished yet and both of my synths don't have any sequencing or rhythm sections yet. So I opted for the Yamaha to lay down the basic beat and sequencing."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #42: Red Sound Darkstar XP2 - Song 1

Published on Oct 31, 2017 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the Red Sound Darkstar XP2. It's a table-top 8-voice polyphonic, 5-part multitimbral virtual analog synthesizer.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
Darkstar XP2 - Sony DPS-V55M - DigiTech Obscura- DigiTech Polara. The used fx varied depending on the recorded track.

The signal goes via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc.

To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with just a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Analog Four MKII - The New Sound [JAM]

Published on Oct 31, 2017 cuckoomusic

"Elektron has refined the signal chain in the new Analog Four MKII to achieve a more mature sound, and a also brand new overdrive. This might seem like a small adjustment at first, but after working with it for a while I feel like it is much more than that. The sonic palette has broadened, all of the sounds have a more solid presence. Especially in the low end. Even the sounds that sound "exactly the same" as on the MKI do in fact benefit from the refined signal chain. I like what I hear.

Here's a jam with several of the sounds used actually not really possible to fully reproduce on the MKI."

"I've swapped the DSI Pro2 for the Novation Peak. Really loving the sound of it, but barely scratching the surface so far. Also added the push to the mix, to be able to play the peak. The idea is to jam the peak on the push, and then later let the digitakt control it, but i've yet to reconnect everything with the midi thru box i recently got. Maybe for the next one ! Just wanted to get this out the door, enjoy !"
