Tetrapad: Mode 1 - Fader Mode

Published on Nov 24, 2017 intellijel

"In Chapter 1 we check out Tetrapad's Fader Mode, which turns the pads into four touch faders able to output simultaneous position and pressure controls.

Tetrapad is a versatile, multi-dimensional, touch-sensitive control surface for Eurorack. Each of its four pads use force sensing resistors to respond to both the vertical position of your finger and its pressure. Four push encoders and a shift function give you even more tactile control over your modular system.
Tetrapad operates in numerous modes — each of which configures the module to perform a specific control task. Through these modes, Tetrapad can emulate a bank of faders; a voltage storage device; a finger drumming surface; a chord generator; an 8-key keyboard; four independent LFOs; or an 8-switch panel. The chosen mode determines what type of signal (CV, note, trigger, gate, etc.) is sent from each of Tetrapad’s eight independent outputs, while its multitude of multi-colored LEDs keep you informed of exactly what’s happening within each mode.
Tetrapad automatically remembers how you’ve configured each of its modes, and retains these settings when powered off. By default, Tetrapad automatically saves these settings every minute, or whenever you change modes. This makes Tetrapad ideal for live performance, since you know it will always power up with your configurations intact."

OB-6 VS MS2000 - Matching Patches and Sound

Published on Nov 23, 2017 MR TUNA Music

"It's the comparison nobody asked for!!! Join your friend, Mr Tuna for an excerise in futility, comparing basic sound and matching patches with two very different synths!

Why compare these two stellars synths as if they were in the same league??? A matter of convenience, I suppose. If you've got one synth on top of another synth it just makes sense!

If you're watching this, forgive me. This video is so basic and unentertaining I have no idea why I am even posting it.

OB-6 or MS2000 ---what's YOUR preference???"

Big Little Tonic Sample Pack from Goldbaby

Published on Nov 23, 2017 GoldbabySamples

"Big Little Tonic sample pack. Available now here:"

"It’s not a small calculator, it’s a huge drum machine! The PO32 is the amazing collaboration between Teenage Engineering and Sonic Charge. A hardware drum machine that, when paired with it’s older brother the legendary software MicroTonic, can create almost unlimited drum sounds. Once loaded on the PO32 these sounds are raw, punchy and have a unique character all their own!

At first I was developing a sample pack based on a collection of mini hardware drum machines. However it soon became apparent that the PO32 deserved it’s own pack!

775 x 24 bit wav samples including drums, FX and even a few synth and bass sounds. All recorded through various studio hardware in the Goldbaby studio: UBK Fatso, ez1073-500 Pre & EQ, Fat Bustard II Valve mixer, Elektron Analog Heat, Strymon Deco, EM-PEQ Pultec style EQ. I even recorded a few of the sounds directly from the tiny PO32 speaker.

With kits and patches for: NI Maschine, Ableton Live, Geist, Battery, Kontakt, Logic EXS24 and Reason.

Also as a little bonus for those who own the Micro Tonic software I have included some of the patches I created while developing this sample pack."

Rob Papen Introduces SuBoomBass 2

Published on Nov 24, 2017 Rob Papen

"Rob Papen produces bigger booms and shake-shake-shake the rooms with SubBoomBass 2

“I've loved SubBoomBass from the start — instant access over lots of great-sounding deep basses that immediately sit nicely in the mix! A must-have for every dance producer!”
- Tom Holkenberg (a.k.a. Junkie XL), composer/producer (Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool), 2017

ECHT, THE NETHERLANDS: virtual instrument and effect plug-in developer Rob Papen Soundware is proud to announce availability of SubBoomBass 2 — succeeding the award-winning, self- explanatory floor-shaking SubBoomBass soft synth with the original (often) bass-heavy presets all present and accounted for alongside an abundance of new features and new sound colours to take things closer to the (cutting) edge — as of November 24…

It is immediately obvious to the naked eye that SubBoomBass 2’s GUI (Graphical User Interface) is on the receiving end of a musical makeover making for more comfortable control of all its fanciful features. Fortunately for fans of the original soft synth, SubBoomBass 2 retains its much-loved modelled analogue waveform-driven warmth, but brings into being a brave new world of new sound colours courtesy of supplemental spectrum waveforms, with high-quality thinking outside of the box-style samples sitting alongside a welcome inclusion of Karplus-Strong string synthesis — a method of physical modelling synthesis that loops a short waveform through a filtered delay line to simulate the sound of a hammered or plucked string or some types of percussion. Put it this way: with so much musical firepower placed at adventurous users’ fingertips, SubBoomBass 2 surely sets loose some seriously fresh-sounding and hitherto unheard sounds... above and beyond the (arguably) restrictive realms of dance production with which SubBoomBass first found its musical mark so beautifully.

But, Rob Papen being Rob Papen, there is so much more to SubBoomBass 2 than might first meet the eye... enter an X/Y screen (which will already be familiar to owners of the company’s critically-acclaimed BLUE-II and RAW soft synths both designed differently for different musical motivation in mind); access an all-new SEQUENCER (capable of running four patterns); plus an easy-to-use BANK MANAGER (with ‘star’ feature for speedily searching for favourites — whether user- created or one of the trademark Rob Papen professionally-programmed presets presented in their thousands). Speaking of which, all of the original SubBoomBass (sometimes) bass-heavy presets are all present and accounted for, so SubBoomBass 2 can capably boom and shake-shake-shake the room with the very best — bigger and better than its predecessor, possibly!

SubBoomBass 2 allows anyone to creatively compliment any style of contemporary music at any time — whether working on video game or film scores, or anything in between and beyond. After all, fellow high-flying Dutchman and original SubBoomBass supporter Tom Holkenberg (a.k.a. Junkie XL) started out on the dance floor, fraternising with worldwide chart positions, and ended up on the big screen as a hotshot Hollywood film scorer. Similarly, SubBoomBass 2 is surely set to become another success story for Rob Papen. Anything is possible... just ask Junkie XL!

SubBoomBass 2 can be purchased in a boxed edition — as an AAX (32-/64-bit), AU (32-/64-bit), VST (32-/64-bit) compatible audio software plug-in for Mac OS X (10.6 or higher) and Windows (Vista, 7, 8, and 10) — from authorised Rob Papen dealers worldwide or as a download directly from Rob Papen for €99.00 EUR/$99.00 USD from here: (Owners of SubBoomBass are eligible to upgrade to SubBoomBass 2 for €39.00 EUR/$39.00 USD, while SubBoomBass 2 is included in eXplorer4, the latest incarnation of Rob Papen’s all-encompassing software bundle, so owners of eXplorer4 can download the SubBoomBass 2 installer for free.)"

Modded YAMAHA CS01 II Mobile Analog Synthesizer SN 2242

via this auction

"Yamaha CS01 II analog synth in very good condition (there are some minor cosmetic scratches -- see pictures) with a modification made so that the breath controller VCA knob has been replaced with a pitch bend range potentiometer.

In an unmodified CS01 II, I believe you only get a half or whole step pitch bend range. (It's been a while since I've played an unmodified CS01 II, so I might be incorrect with the original range; suffice to say that it's fixed and narrow.) With this modification, you get between a half step and an full octave pitch bend range, depending on how far you turn the potentiometer. This modification makes this instrument MUCH more useful.

After adjusting the pitch bend range, you may need to adjust the VCO pitch slider to bring the synth back into concert pitch, as changing the pitch bend range tends to make the overall keyboard pitch slightly different, but that's a small inconvenience for having a truly useful pitch bend. I do not know if the breath controller will still work with this keyboard since it has been modified to have the pitch bend range potentiometer."

XAOC Devices - Belgrad (Timbral Explorations)

Published on Nov 24, 2017 eightball

"Timbral explorations of incredibly versatile filter from XAOC Devices. Belgrad is not only a filter but it can act as a VCO with very good V/Oct tracking - just crank up the "Reso" knob and it will start to self-oscillate beautifully.

It is capable of giving very lushy and gentle touch to your sounds but it could be also gritty and aggressive. Play with different filter types and SM/XM switch and explore unheard before territories."

CASIO CZ-1 SOUND DEMO - Lost Patrol Theme

Published on Nov 24, 2017 tiergrinder

"Casio CZ-1, digital synth from 1986.

Instead of the more popular FM synthesis, CZ-1 uses PD (Phase Distortion) synthesis to create sounds.

While it doesn't sound exactly like an FM Synth, it can get to same region and beyond. CZ-1 shines on bright metallic and bell sounds. It also does pretty good string , brass and pad sounds, especially when two sounds are layered in split mode.

CZ-1 has 16 voice polyphony with 2 "oscillators" per voice and also ability to split the keyboard, so that the upper and lower parts play their own sounds. User interface is MUCH more user-friendly when compared to many of the legendary FM synths. Almost all functions have dedicated buttons and sound editing follows the traditional subtractive architecture. CZ-1 has 64 presets and 64 user patches, there is also a possibility to use external memory cartridge to expand the memory to 128 user patches. CZ-1 also has pretty good midi implementation and is multitimbral.

Demo song : Lost Patrol Theme, originally composed by Chris Glaister

All synth sounds are from Casio CZ-1 synth :

Bass : Preset B-4 SLAP BASS
Main Strings : Preset A-4 STRINGS
Backing Strings : Preset G-1 SYNTH STRINGS
Polysynth Chords : Preset A-1 Brass 1
FM Percussion : Preset F-6 Afro Percussion
Guitar : B-1 Acoustic Guitar
Pan Flute : C-7 Recorder
Backing Percussion at end : F-3 Xylophone
Whistle : Preset C-5 Whistle


Helicopter sample is taken from old sample CD."
