Noodling with a Sputnik Dual Oscillator

Published on Nov 5, 2017 Angroc Sound

"Westcoast synthesis is the reason I have decided to plunge into eurorack. Not much so far, but just a single Dual Oscillator can keep me entertained for hours. Such wide sonic capabilities.

Noodling on a very limited setup. No mults or stackable cables. Limited amount of cables to interface with the analog four/cirklon CVIO. Because of this I could only use a single envlope and none of the VCAs from the Gallilean Moons module."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #43: Red Sound Darkstar XP2 - Song 2

Published on Nov 5, 2017 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the second 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."

Soulsby Atmegatron Song - Dungera's Theme

Published on Nov 5, 2017 Oscillator Sink

"I had such a fun time the last time I used the Atmegatron to write a song that I had to go back and have another go! This is a little spooOOookier than the last song (seeing as we've just passed Halloween). I hope you enjoy it!

Everything you hear (including the drums) is coming from the Atmegatron using its 'default' firmware. Very little processing has been applied during mixing - basically nothing more than rolling some bottom end off a few sounds, so it's pretty much Raw Atmegatron you're hearing!

I hope you enjoy it - I had a blast composing and recording it!

The visualisation is done with the excellent "PrettyScope" from SoundMote:"

An Update on Black Corporation's DECKARD'S DREAM - 2nd Run of Prebuilt Units Pre-Orders Now Open

via Black Corporation

"We hope this newsletter reaches you well. We here at Black Corporation have been working hard to fill all of the orders for the first run of Deckard’s Dream DIY kits and pre-built units. Most of the DIY kits were shipped in mid-October and we are already seeing some enthusiastic builders putting the finishing touches on their projects.

The first run of built Deckard’s Dream units will start shipping this week. We are looking forward to getting them to their new owners and hearing all of the great things they are used for. It has been a major learning experience, but we have managed to streamline some of the process do things more smoothly moving forward. We also had made many software improvements recently, adding extended EG and LFO speeds and microtuning features.

We have been receiving inquiries as to when the second run would be, so we are happy to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders, expecting to ship in February. They will also be $3749, and just as we did in the first run, we will accept preorders with a deposit of $1199 until December 1, 2017 (after which, we will not be able to accept cancellations or refunds). We will then request a final payment of $2550, the balance, when the units are ready to ship. This includes free shipping by Japan Post Priority International.

Please preorder here.

We still have a few DIY kits in stock and will have the full build guide available shortly for those who have been reluctant to emerge into the project.

Unfortunately, these efforts did require us to take some attention away from our upcoming Expander unit, but we are now fully focused on finalizing it.

Stay tuned for more updates,
Black Corporation"

Roland MC-202 MicroComposer, Analog Synth Sequencer SN 340400

via this auction

The blue buttons appear to have gone green. Give it an interesting look.

"Great little analog synth with built in sequencer, it's basically a SH-101 synth but it has a sequencer that can add accent and slide (just like an TB-303).
All pots and sliders work fine with no crackle or problems apart from the square wave slider on the source mixer, the sound doesn't begin to fade in until the slider is moved about 20% of its length. It's not really been a problem for me but I thought it needed to be mentioned.
All keys and buttons work perfectly.
Battery compartment clean.

2 channel Sequencer
Plays both the internal synth and also an external synth via CV and gate out using one channel while at the same time playing a second external synth with a totally different sequence using the external CV and gate outputs.

Tape Save/Load
Even though most users might consider the Tape in/out a bit redundant I think it is very useful as sequences can be saved/loaded using a sampler or audio channel from a DAW instead of tape, just record the data as audio and you can build a library of acid lines to load in seconds.

Sync In/Out
One Roland sync input and two sync outputs will allow the MC-202 to clock from an external device while it sends clock to two other devices

CV/Gate in
Play the internal synth and record realtime sequences using a full size keyboard

CV/Gate Out X 2
Play both Sequencer parts on external synths"

Dreadbox Erebus - Paraphonic in some strange way

Published on Nov 5, 2017 Martin Jagl

"Here I use the MODWHEEL-signals to play OSC2 independently from OSC1.

- Connect MOD (out) to OSC2 (in)

Setup in your DAW:

- only one MIDI channel for OSC1 (real note values) and MODWHEEL values

There are no fixed settings to get your desired note values for OSC2.
Its depending on the position of your „MOD DEPHT“ knob.
With a little trial and error, you will roughly know, which is a third, a fifth, an octave - and so on.

In this way you can also create a faked sample & hold effect. (send it from MOD to VCF)"

Published on Nov 5, 2017 Ralph Baumgartl

"In this Live Synthesizer Jam I am using the new Roland SE-02 monophonic Synth in conjunction with the ARP 2600 semi modular Synthesizer. The bass sounds from these two Synths work nicely together, and the 'After Touch' feature of the SE-02 offers great sonic possibilities when playing live. The Jam Session is my style of IDM and Electronica with some traces of Ambient and a little bit of Berlin School of Electronic Music. Enjoy!

The gear list:
Roland SE-02 (Studio Electronics), ARP 2600 with Arturia Keystep Controller (also acting as a Midi/CV interface), Korg M50, Arturia Microbrute, Roland Vocoder VP-330, Roland JD-Xi, Roland JX-3P, Akai MPK25 controlling Macbook with Logic Pro, Strymon BigSky, Strymon Timeline, Zoom MS-70CDR, Boss BX-600 mixer, MOTU Micro Lite USB Midi Interface, Soundcraft Signature 22 MTK."
