New Twisted Electrons Crazy8Beats In the Works

via liquid sky berlin

"the perfect compagnion for tthe twisted electrons crazy8 sequencer - same size as c8 and acid8

the crazy8beats is a crrrrazy programming tool for advanced tricky rhythms with some massive cool mindbending features:

- 21 port connectivity
- 8 triggers
- 8 cv outputs
- cv modulation per step
- Midi CC per step
- Velocity
- Swing per Track
- probability and beat auto-remixing
- real time beat recording
- drill fx
- different clockrate per track (clockdivider / clockmultiplier per track)
- 16 patterns per track (can be changed per track or all at once)

this is actually a "killer" feature. you find a good groove for bassdrum / snaredrum and the club is rocking : cool! now you can leave the beat as it is and start to change only hihats / toms / percussions / ...

- pattern chaining
- 87 leds - crrrrrrazy #gearporn lightshow! :)
- 4 play modes per track
- Midi clock in/out
- trigger sync in/out

presale starts before xmas - shipping will be before superbooth2018.
price will be like crazy8."

Aux: Digitakt Track 1

Published on Nov 3, 2017 Benjamin Kinsman

"Been fiddling with it for a few weeks but here's the first recording with the Digitakt.
(I'm still working it out so there's quite a few stuff ups and wrong button hits)

OMG I love this thing so much!!

Song consists of 11 parts/sections with 43 different samples, via p-locks and probability events.
Main keys sequence was originally 4 tracks but re-sampled back into itself and mapped back to 1, solo synths from the OP-1.

Had a couple of Elektron boxes in the past but always found them a little overwhelming (probs because I never read the manuals and was too busy trying to integrate them with the modular), the Digitakt seems like the perfect unit that's deep but not a bottomless pit."

VGM #120: Korok Forest (Breath of the Wild) *ZELDA MONTH*

Published on Nov 3, 2017 Ace Waters

"And so it begins. Sorry this one was a little late, I had an insane weekend after finishing up the Sonic LP, and needed the extra time to get back to a place of creating. This year, I am gonna be doing a theme of sorts for Zelda Month. You will probably pick up on it pretty quick. To start off, lets go to one of my favorite tracks from BoTW (IT HAS A REAL GOOD SOUNDTRACK, MR. ERUPTION) the Korok Forest theme. I based my arrangement off the night arrangement, and kind of took it in a neon synth direction. Like a late night drive through the future. But its also a forest in a fantasy game. Anyways. Enjoy!"

Moog Sonic 6 - with Ring Mod & Bode Freq Shift - #1

Published on Nov 3, 2017 noddyspuncture

"What I've done here is put the Sonic 6 through both the Moogerfooger Ring Modulator and the Bode Frequency Shifter - and then panned them hard left and right. Headphones most definitely recommended..!! The LFO output from the Ring Modulator is also patched into the Bode's control input. The Sonic is basically playing itself via the X/Y trigger assigners and I'm varying both the effects and the Sonic's oscillator and modulation parameters... and all that is still just "scratching the surface"..! :)"

Doepfer R2M ribbon controller test with Moog Modular

Published on Nov 3, 2017 retrosynthads

"Just picked up a Doepfer R2M Ribbon Controller - first test with the Moog Modular.

R2M CV1 output is going to 901A controller, sending pitch CV to 901B modules (saw and pulse). Signal is mixed into 904 VCF module.

R2M CV2 output is sending "aftertouch" control info to VCF.

Works perfectly!"

Retroaktiv HLFO - Using HLFO as a Vibrato Source

Published on Nov 3, 2017 New England Analog Archives

"The HLFO can be used as a vibrato source. The vibrato can be triggered by using the on-board FSR sensor pad, or you can use another source, such as a mod wheel, aftertouch, or any other CV source. This is just one of countless applications of this useful module!"

SUPERBOOTH18 Tickets Now Available

New press release for SUPERBOOTH18:

"SUPERBOOTH18 continues to grow in 2018!

SUPERBOOTH18 is the first European trade fair for electronic musical instruments and will take place from 3 to 5 May 2018 at the FEZ Berlin.

Next year, the world's largest trade fair for electronic musical instruments and music production will be strengthened even more by a growing scene and new innovations. To accommodate all the creative minds drawn to the event, Superbooth 2018 has expanded the exhibition area and is expecting more than 5000 visitors in 2018. Ticket sale has already started on 1st November on

More than 80% of this year’s exhibitors already confirmed their participation for 2018. In addition there will be many new manufacturers attending SUPERBOOTH for the first time next year. Due to limited space, not all interested exhibitors could be accommodated this year. That is why there will be new exhibition space in the Westflügel of the FEZ Berlin in 2018.

The fair is strongly focused on the modular synthesizer. A few years ago, only few people knew about this kind of instrument, although it has been shaping the music world since the 1960s. Today, the modular synthesizer conquers the internet, festivals and stages of the world. At SUPERBOOTH Berlin, visitors can gather their own experiences and exchange thoughts with the manufacturers and developers of these amazing devices.

SUPERBOOTH18 continues to work on making a new generation of musicians familiar with electronic musical instruments. Gammon already introduced young people to the modular synthesizer during this year's event. He is currently touring Europe with his series of workshops, where more and more traditional musicians are learning how to use this both traditional and ultra-modern instrument."

Radikal Technologies Jörg Schaaf All In Sync Jam

Published on Nov 3, 2017 Jörg Schaaf

"Today I made a little synchronisation test for my Jam Setup. The masterclock is produced by Logic. The Spectralis, the Keystep and the Beatstep are running in Sync. The Keystep does not only receive the MIDI clock. It also produces the sync clock for the Doepfer system and there especially the A-155 step sequencer. I hope, you enjoy the little Jam. The distorted filter sound is produced by the RT-451 multimode together with the drive function of the EFFEXX multi FX module.

I hope you enjoy the JAM ;-)"
