Future Retro Revolution SN FREV0239

via this auction

"Revolution analog synthesizer made by Future Retro. This synth was designed to be a TB-303 clone with some awesome additional features. In addition to the classic 303 sound, the Revolution has awesome sounding built in effects, a “remix” mode to help add variety to the sequencer and a built in overdrive circuit which gives it that classic “Devilfish” sound. This unit is in good condition and everything works as it should... the only exception is that if the unit is off for a while, it will lose its saved sequence data, so it probably needs a new internal battery (a cheap and quick thing to replace)."

Tetrapad: Chapter 2 - Voltages Mode

Published on Nov 25, 2017 intellijel

"In Chapter 2 we check out Tetrapad's Voltages Mode, which turns the four pads into a panel of eight buttons that can each send eight stored voltages. This puts 64 stored voltages at your fingertips which can create a sort of preset memory for your modular system! Voltages can be randomized, and they can also be slewed to make them slide from one set of values to another.

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."

Improvisation LXXXI for Prophet '08

Published on Nov 24, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"Three different patches are used in this improvisation. The monophonic patch consists of a pulse tone having a delayed vibrato and a wide and very slowly modulated pulse width. It covers the whole range of timbres from a nasal reed to a hollow flute.

The first and last polyphonic patch is a basic PWM pad that uses the 4-pole filter for a change and no resonance. The other polyphonic patch that appears in the middle of the piece is a simple flute chorus sound. Both sounds are set to allow the modulation wheel to open the filter for dynamic changes.

The days are now short, our lakes and ponds are freezing, and soon the ground will be covered in snow. All will sleep for five frigid months, but meanwhile, the music will keep us warm and cheerful until the robins return.

"Firstly, this synth is partially working - the two Synth voices do not sound, but the other voices do. Also, when I bought this synth it had been modded, as you can see with the two knobs and switch. I've never really figured out what this mod does! All the main functions appear to work as they should."

Modor - New Eurorack Formant Filter // Synthfest 2017

Published on Nov 25, 2017 DivKidVideo

"I think this went largely missed by many at Synthfest but the new Modor eurorack modular formant filter sounded great! Stereo formant filter coming from their NF-1 synth in modular ... yes please! Looking forward to seeing how this develops."

via Modor Music

"We received the question quite a few times: 'When will you break up the Modor NF-1 in Eurorack pieces? Well, we 're not going to build Eurorack modules for everything there is in the NF-1, but we tought our formant filter is that special and unique we can't leave the modular world deprived of it ... :-)

So, here we are: Modor's Formant Filter in a Eurorack Module!

Modor's Formant Filter is a special filter that does a kind of 'vowel morphing' between three vowels. The big central FORMANT control is responsible for that, and on the Eurorack module there's of course a CV control (with attenuation) on this parameter.

You can imagine a formant filter as a set of parallel bandpass filters, picking up and amplifying a set of small frequency bands. For example, with these frequency bands around 750Hz, 1200Hz and 2800Hz, you get the sound of an 'A'. So far, nothing special. There are more formant filters around composed of a set of parallel bandpass filters.

It gets more interesting when you're able to 'morph' between different sets of those formant frequencies. Behind the central FORMANT control, there are 3 of those sets of frequencies. One at full left, one in the middle, and one fully right. So you can for example morph between A-E-O. Or U-I-E. Or AO-UI-EU. Or ...

That's what it does: morphing between different sets of formant frequencies, and that's why it sounds a lot more genuine vowelish than many other static bandpass combinators.

There are 10 preset vowels, that can be selected with the VOWEL button: A-E-O-I-OE-U-EI-EU-AO-U-UI. The vowels of the Dutch language... :-)

The 1-2-3-4 controls on top give you the possibility of composing your own vowels by manually adjusting the frequency bands."

Metallica vs Electronica - Live jammin' with Pyramid, Elektron Octatrack, Moog and more

Published on Nov 25, 2017 Rickinger B.

"Okay, here is the story ;-) Many many years ago i had long hair and played loud music with my guitar. Heavy metal was my life in the eighties. Now i am into electronic music, but my heart never stopped beating for my heroes in this time. And so i had the idea to make this two passions into one project. I hope you'll like this first song. And if you want, leave a comment. If you like this idea, i will make more songs with more bands. Perhaps you have also a favorite band of this time and genre, please feel free to comment it. I will make the new song with your heroes!

Used Gear:
Squarp Pyramid - Sequencer
Nord A1 - Organ, Deep Monopad
Moog SubPhatty - Bass, of course ;-)
Dreadbox murmux v2 - Euclidian Synths
Modular System - Pad in the break
Elektron Octatrack - Metallica and Modular Samples
