Meris Polymoon pedal jam session

Published on Nov 16, 2017 soundseas

"The Meris Polymoon Pedal is definitely not your run of the mill stompbox. I would even go so far as to say that Meris Polymoon is using the guise of a guitar pedal to hide the fact that it's a studio quality delay-modulating-phaser-super freaky sound generator!

We barely scratched the surface with this short video demonstration, there really is a lot going on under the hood. There are all sorts of settings that can be activated by some deft button pushing, and it even has midi!
Each button and knob are multi-purpose which is kinda fun. (we didn't go over any of this is this video, but we'll do another video that covers this in greater detail)

Things like being able to change the audio input from stereo TRS to mono using the "Time" knob, and switching between various modes for the expression pedal using the "Dynamics" knob.

All pretty nifty.

But at the end of the day it's all about the sound, and the polymoon's sound is seriously good, even when you get really silly and tweak the bejesus out of it. I could have spent all day on this thing!
Awesome work Meris!"

Doepfer A-106-6 XP Filter Overview (LMS Eurorack Expansion Project)

Published on Nov 16, 2017 Learning Modular

"I created a set of four movies on the Doepfer A-106-6 XP Filter, which was inspired by the filter in the Oberheim Xpander. Anyone who is curious about the sound of different filter modes or numbers of poles, or the difference between filters that self-oscillates versus one that doesn’t, will probably find these movies interesting as I really dive into the sound and characteristic of this flexible Curtis-based filter module.

As usual, my Patreon subscribers ( get additional posts with details.

iVCS3 Demos by James Edward Including Pink Floyd's “On The Run”

Published on Nov 14, 2017 James Edward

iTunes: iVCS3 - apeSoft

"Pink Floyd’s 'On The Run' cover only using iVCS3 as a sound source and Cubasis to record each separate iVCS3 sound on multiple tracks. These sounds will be released via iVCS3’s Preset and Mod Shop in late 2017."

Note the above starts with "On The Run" and then goes into additional demos of iVCS3 by James Edward. There are a couple of non iVCS3 demos, but considering how many more iVCS3 demos there were I went with the full channel playlist.

via James Edward in the Top 3 iOS Synthesizers ( Best of 2017 ) post by Todd Smith:

"For me there is no more nostalgic iOS recreation than iVCS3. Though it is a difficult beast for most to get to grips with (just like its hardware original) the satisfaction of programming all those iconic sounds is surpassed by none."

Korg Monologue and Minilogue on the kitchen table

Published on Nov 16, 2017 Tony Horgan

"The Monologue is passed through the Minilogue's audio input, which acts as a kind of mixer in this very minimalist set-up. The Minilogue plays an arpeggio pattern and the Monologue is played live on the keyboard. That's all!"

Yamaha DX7 FM Synthesizer SN 101098

via this auction

I have a new found appreciation for the DX7 and FM synthesis. I finally got around to exploring my DX-200 again and it offers so much more than your bread and butter sounds. The timbres evolve in a way that actually remind me of the Buchla music easel. I now understand why Barry Shrader explored FM synthesis after the Buchla.

BTW, if you have a DX7 based 6-Op FM synth, I highly recommend the DX7 editor in Patch Base by Coffeeshopped LLC. Be sure to click the little algorithm icon on the bottom left of the editor. It will arrange the operators on screen according to the selected algorithm. You can also double tap any oscillator to bring up a larger screen to edit. If you own an iPad it's a must have editor imo.

Analog Experiments 9 (Novation Circuit Mono Station thru Moog Ring Modulator)

Published on Nov 16, 2017 HardtekStudios

"In this chapter of 'Analog Experiments', I run the Novation Circuit Mono Station's audio out into the audio in of the Moog Moogerfooger Ring Modulator. Then the Mono Station's CV pitch out is routed into the Ring Mod's Frequency input. Finally, the Mono Station's Aux CV out is routed into the Mix CV in of the Ring Mod with the Mono Station's Velocity controlling the amount of wet/dry signal, but in negative. So the softer the Velocity the more Ring Mod signal is put out."
