Hawkeye - Patch of Light (live MBLoopa & Synths)

Published on Nov 12, 2017 Maelstroem3

"A little techdemo/song of what is possible with the MBLoopA v2, a MIDI sequencer, that will be hopefully openly available as a DIY project in spring 2018! :-)

Features: 6 polynote channels with stepbased or unquantized note data, eight "scenes" (here used for transposing) and note editing, visual/graphical clip/note display and measure-synchronized muting/unmuting of tracks and scene switching, all running on a tiny 192kb ram microcontroller and a rather nice 256x64px OLED using the great MIDIbox hardware platform!

Synths and gear used:
* Alesis Andromeda for the intro lead
* Moog LP/MFB Dominion hard left/right mapped for the bassline
* Roland JD 990 for delay lead
* Yamaha FS1R for the kickdrum
* E-MU E6400 Ultra for drums
* Strymon Timeline/BigSky and a DIY Polivoks VCF for the phasing effect

Everything was recorded live to a Tascam wavegrabber, no DAW or other sequencer was abused during recording, only used a "real" computer for audio compression after the session :-).

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for watching and listening!
Many greets,
Hawkeye/Maelstroem Records"

First Run With Elektron Octatrack MKII, Analog Four MKII, Novation Peak, Roland TB-03

Published on Nov 12, 2017 Ehsan Gelsi


Interesting how much bigger the Analog Four is compared to the Octarack.


Published on Nov 12, 2017 zack dagoba

"A doodle on the Moog. Here you can see me tweaking some drum sounds made on the 3C Moog. The snare drum is the most complex sound, using 4 VCOs, noise and 2 envelope generators / VCA combos. The bass drum is a simple 1 VCO going through the 904 filter with another env gen controlling the pitch and the VCF frequency. The HH click sound is just the clock going through the fixed filter bank. I'm using the 2 sequencers to trigger the envelopes, and the matrix mixer to mix and EQ it all." - trig31 Eurorack Trigger to MIDI converter

DSP Synthesizers: MIDIfying the Korg Monotron

via DSP Synthesizers

"This project adds USB-MIDI control to the Korg Monotron synthesizer.

A Trinket is installed inside with a micro-USB connector at the back.

A custom version of the uMIDI2CV is flashed on the Trinket.

The original function of the Monotron is unaffected when no USB is plugged in.

With USB plugged in the Monotron shows up as a MIDI device on the computer/phone/tablet without any special drivers.

The Trinket is connected to the AUX input and to the filter cutoff.

DreamsOfWires - AJH Synth Mini Mod solo improvisation

Published on Nov 12, 2017 DreamsOfWires

"Back home after a busy month away, and back to my favourite toys.

This is only something very simple and free-form, with a single voice, just to enjoy the sound of the instrument. My recording doesn't do the Mini Mod justice, but it has a satisfyingly big, warm and characterful sound.

I start with a single VCO, then add a second, then a third, all tuned to different pitches. The 'mod' touch pad on the Keystep (plus my finger) is controlling filter cutoff via CV, and I'm tweaking resonance directly on the filter front panel.

Recorded into AUM on an iPad, via an iConnectAUDIO4+, using Audio Damage's 'Eos 2' for reverb. A Frequency Central LFO is connected to the VCO's PWM.

Cloud footage was recorded on an iPhone SE, synth footage was recorded with a Sony RX100 IV and a LUMIX GX7.

Please don't ask for more technical details than that, it's really not that important and gets tedious. All that matters is the results and the enjoyment getting there..

To my subscribers/followers so far - thank you for your support and patience, it genuinely means a lot to me."

Kawai K1 Synthesizer Keyboard Refurbished SN 184788

via this auction

"This K1 has been gone over just this past week.
It has a new battery inserted into a properly installed battery holder for easier future replacement.
The mod stick was serviced for a few cold solder joints, so now it functions fully as data entry and real-time performance mod tool.
Everything was vacuumed out and cleaned. Some surface scratches were buffed out.

Factory patches were re-installed and a few patches were edited to test everything out and to demonstrate what this platform is capable of. Layered performance of a decent string patch with slight de-tunings + panning plus use of the mod stick makes for some rich, swirling textures that are atmospheric gems. Being able to use amplitude mod, along with the omnibus waveforms enables some very interesting rhythmic tools.

It has a few scratches here and there, and the area near the patch select and edit buttons has been polished a bit by years of use. Overall, clean, straight, solid.

It comes with a new 12v power supply."

Akai Professional AX-60 Analog Programmable Polyphonic Synthesizer MIDI

via this auction

"It is a great CEM3394-based fully analog, 6 voice (VCO) synth comparable to the Roland Juno-106, but with some features of the Jupiter-6, for example split upper/lower voices and a nice Arpeggiator. The filter is fantastic, much different than a Juno, and can really squeal. It also has a great Chorus effect similar to the Juno. It can also interface with the Akai S-612 sampler. One of the last analogs from the 80s."

Korg Pa4X Keyboard Sets Strings QR

Published on Nov 12, 2017 Qui Robinez

"On the pa4x you can combine up till three sounds to create one sound. This is done with the Keyboards Sets feature. There you can create your own combinations of sounds and set things like the keyzone range for that specific combination.

In this keyboard set i use three of my own sounds to create a string ensemble which i use to play a song solo (with style elements).

It's really easy to create such keyboard sets. Just select three of your favorite sounds and set the keyboard range, octave tuning and more per sound and add the effects to the keyboard set. Then save that as a custom keyboard set and you can use it any time you want."

ARP Little Brother Demo

Published on Feb 26, 2017

Demo starts at :45.

"Short demo of my newly acquired ARP Little Brother synthesizer expander accompanying my ARP Axxe. The Little Brother arrived in pretty good working order, no repairs needed, although some minor maintenance is in order for a couple of loose switches. It sounds just wonderful. First part of the video shows the AXXE settings. Pretty basic, both oscillators running, filter wide open, short attack and fairly quick release. I programmed a short sequence on my Engine sequencer which has some staccato notes, some longer notes, a slide or two, etc. As the sequence plays I just hop through the different waveforms and octaves on the Little Brother to showcase the sounds. I think I play with the vibrato a little bit including turning on the vibrato delay for a few seconds."

Jeff Hunt DIY Synth Project - The Portal

Published on Oct 2, 2016 Jeff Hunt

"My DIY groovebox. I am a beginner. Just got started this year after watching videos by Casper Electronics. Highly recommended! I followed up by researching 9v/12v single supply circuits, and after much trial and error I came up with this final product. Many thanks to the folks on the Synth DIY forums on Facebook and elsewhere for tons of advice. Also many thanks to Nicolas Collins and his book Handmade Electronic Music for lots of tips. Feel free to ask any questions, and thanks for watching!

Square/Sawtooth/Triangle waves
16-step sequencer based on a simple 40106/4040/4067 design for the oscillator
8-step sequencer based on a 40106/4040/4051 design for drums

I did install a clock input but haven't even tried it yet. I think I may have to build an external clock adapter module to make it work right due to the way I timed everything.

Sound processing circuits based on the following designs with my modifications:

--MS20 style lowpass filter with lfo modulation by Tim Escobedo

--"Little Angel" chorus by Frequency Central

--"Funky MF" multimode envelope follower filter by Frequency Central

--"Echo Bender" delay by Casper Electronics

BURG - neon (Abstrakt instruments Avalon bassline)

Published on Nov 12, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

This track is also available for download on bandcamp:

So I got the Abstrakt instruments Avalon bassline the other day, really missing the 303 style sounds since i sold my TB-3 it is safe to say my expectations were very high on this one.

I plugged it in, and it just took me into this hypnotic trance stage almost at an instant... i have no idea what was going on, I tried adding hihats, playing melodies on the volca keys, ms-20 etc.. but nothing felt right.. this 8 step sequence just wanted to breathe. And on my does it breathe and sound great. I'm completely blown away by this machine, possibly one of the best purchases I have made since I got my ms-20.

What you see and hear is me macro controlling the avalon knobs, cutoff, envelopes, accents to make it fluid and have the bassline progress over time .. also i did not want the other sounds to take too much space since this is all about the square bassline, period.

18 minutes might be a bit over the top with a 8 step sequence in 121 bpm, but man, i could easily play this for 20 minutes more :)

This is way more minimal in style that I normally do with BURG; but it felt so right to just take all the extra icing off of this one since the Avalon just wanted the space on this track.

Digitakt does the kick, rimshot, and a couple of dubby chords and a low-end sub-bass, volca bass does another filter modulated bass on top. FM does some stabs routed through the Avalon external in.

Modular sound sources, braids and rings background melodies + BIA for percussion.

Gear used: Abstrakt instruments Avalon, Elektron digitakt, KORG volca bass, KORG volca FM, tr-8 (just for sidechain FX on the volca bass).

FX used, RE-20 + Keeley caverns on modular, EQD space spiral and built-in FX in the Elektron analog four for the avalon.

Hope you will enjoy it!
