"Synth Sample Packs available here

I've been having a ton of fun with this new Korg Gadget Vancouver, which is a layering sample player. The sounds that the Gadget come with can be fun. Some are definitely better than others. Where i really see this player coming alive is through your own samples. You can do some really cool things with the small amount of manipulation given to you. In this video I take two samples from a few of our sample packs, one from the MemoryMoog vintage synth, and one from the Korg Poly61 and blend them together to make a powerful synth sound. Then i have a little fun jamming with my settings. Hope you enjoy! If you like the video please subscribe!"

Touché & Novation Peak : Haendel's Ghost

Published on Nov 17, 2017 Expressive E

"In this series of videos, we explore some of the presets for the Novation Peak that comes with every Touché.

Touché ships with Lié, its companion software. Lié is a host of plug-ins and comes with tailor-made sounds and configurations for a selection of synthesisers, as well as tools to make your own software and hardware presets.

Those hardware presets for Touché are templates that make your experience truly plug-and play with hardware synthesisers from Moog, Dave Smith, Korg, Roland, Nord, Yamaha, Novation, Elektron, Arturia, Waldorf...

For a selection of synths, the hardware presets for Touché are one step further, matching some of their factory presets.

All hardware presets can be saved in Touché's internal memory, in order to use Touché in standalone, without any computer."

This Is Not Rocket Science - Tuesday (TINRS)

Published on Nov 17, 2017 DivKidVideo

"What a fantastic and inspirational little module this is!

I've had Tuesday for a while now and it's an amazing little module for getting things moving quickly. It's algorithm based sequencing with 4 default (hold the button until it flashes and you can change defaults etc, all very simple and the manual is well worth a read to set this up how you want quickly) scales, algorithms, rhythms (included triplets and quintuplets) and the main outputs always give you a 1v/oct pitch, gate, accent and stepped velocity. So you can get more expressive and complex patterns beyond a basic sequencer very easily. This will also go up to 32 steps per loop and it clocks and resets like an absolute trooper. Algorithms are controlled by an X and Y parameter both with CV and a " ! " control which is the density from a note per step to barely any notes. All CV-able and highly fun and interactive manually or under voltage control.

After going through bits of the manual and outlining features I chose to just dive into patches that show off a range of things it allows you to get to quickly with some nice audio patches for it to control."

Analogue Solutions Mr Hyde and Dr Strangelove synthBlocks Signal Processors Now Available

"AS announces availability of Mr Hyde and Dr Strangelove synthBlocks signal processors

KINGSWINFORD, UK: British boutique electronic instruments innovator Analogue Solutions is proud to announce availability of Mr Hyde and Dr Strangelove — introducing its synthBlocks series of small and affordable desktop signal processors with two tantalisingly-named new products squarely aimed at laptop and audio plug-ins-focused digital musicians wishing to apply analogue, hands-on hardware processing to their sometimes sterile-sounding computer- based creations — as of November 17…

The synthBlocks series represents an all-new range of small and affordable desktop signal processors produced by British boutique electronic instruments innovator Analogue Solutions, an acclaimed company with over 24 years of designing serious-sounding synthesizers featuring fully-analogue audio paths with analogue LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators) and EGs (Envelope Generators) to its notable name. Similarly, synthBlocks are all-analogue affairs — albeit with some lo-fi digital effects thrown in for good (musical) measure. Menus and software are all eschewed in favour of a hardy hardware approach. As such, synthBlocks are squarely aimed at laptop and audio plug-ins-focused digital musicians wishing to apply analogue, hands-on hardware processing to their sometimes sterile-sounding computer-based creations. Cue simply plugging the synthBlocks in question into an audio interface’s I/O connections, then routing drums, synths, vocals, or whatever out of the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and through the transistors and op-amps of the synthBlocks and recording the results back into the DAW. Something similar can be achieved by connecting the synthBlocks to the auxiliary buss of a mixing console — just like any other effects processor. Whatever the workflow, turning the dials and flicking the switches by hand of course changes the sound in realtime — often with radical results. Results of course can be radically different — depending on which of the two available synthBlocks are applied to any given sound signal.

Many might have heard of Mr Edward Hyde, an abominable alternative personality of Dr Henry Jekyll, a fictional character in Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde gothic novella first published in 1886. However, hearing Analogue Solutions’ Mr Hyde in the here and now is something else entirely! As announced, Mr Hyde was the first out of the starting blocks in its synthBlocks series as an analogue filter effects box bringing subtle to extreme filtering and modulation effects to the analogue processing production table. To further aid ease of use, Mr Hyde has quarter-inch input and output jacks on its rear, so can be connected straight to an audio interface or mixer without the need for adaptors. The topside of its distinctive blood-red panel features minijack sockets to patch with a semi-modular synth, such as Analogue Solutions’ relatively recently released Fusebox — an aptly-named, three-VCO (Voltage- Controlled Oscillator) true analogue monophonic synthesizer that favourably fuses the company’s characterful vintage sound with an advanced choice of modulation and melodic possibilities (in a beautifully-built box); ever-popular Eurorack small-format modular systems; or other modular systems.

via this auction

"The Noise Rainbow is a source of analogue noise and digital pseudorandom pulses. Both sources are generated by new old stock Soviet components (KГ401 and К176ИР10).

The Analogue Noise submodule provides white, grey and coloured noise. The colour output is continuously variable between red, blue and violet for tailored noise.

The Digital Noise submodule produces digital noise that can be swept down to a low frequency random pulse train. The rate can be voltage controlled, or externally clocked to extend the range into a digital VCO reminiscent of chiptune sounds."

"Here's another song with my Roland Boutiques. I find these little boxes very inspiring.
This time I also used 3 analog stompboxes from Boss Waza line: Distortion DS-1w, Delay DM-2w and Chorus CE-2w.
Eventide Space as master reverb.
Recorded in Ableton Live through MOTU Ultralite mkIII audio interface.
This song is quite intimate and minimal but heartfelt. I hope you like it.
I recommend listening with headphones. Mind the volume, at the end the sound gets pretty harsh."
