Prophet 5 rev 3.3 vintage synth MIDI control

Published on Dec 9, 2017 Konstantin T

"This is a quick implementation of digital control of the Prophet 5 synthesizer notes. The interface is done through an STM32F103 microcontroller which acts as a MIDI receiver and outputs proper format for the digital USART on board of the Prophet 5 rev 3.3"

A Tale of Two Filters: Intellijel Polaris & Omsonic RNF

Published on Dec 9, 2017 ngarjuna

"A Tale Of Two Filters
Two Cascaded OTA filters in the Eurorack format compared side by side in Low Pass mode:
Intellijel Polaris
Omsonic RNF

00:00 - 02:02 Open sweeps, high resonance
02:02 - 04:05 Rhythmic pattern sweeps, very wet
04:05 - 06:08 Pattern
06:08 - 08:11 Pattern +1 Oct

Patch Notes:
Audio Damage Sequencer One driving
single sawtooth from Intellijel Rubicon
Into each VCF both enveloped by Maths SUM (ch1 ACC ch4 GATE)
and modulated by AD SeqOne LFO (SIN & SAW @ 256 steps)
4-pole out to uVCA enveloped by Dual ADSR

Open sweeps are the same patch with the gates silent and the VCA bias cranked up

No effects

As each module features on-board attenuators for everything I did my best to match scaling and offset between the two filters. I also spent some time comparing input drive (COTA filters seem to be very sensitive to input levels).

On the open sweeps I was unable to get the resonance on the Omsonic to the full screech I wanted so I feedback patched some of the 2-pole into Input B and seasoned to taste"

"Synth Jam Saturday! Access Virus Nord Lead 2 JP-8000 JX-305
Synth Jam by Rik Marston **Watch in HD!** **TURN IT UP!!**

Ahhh it feels like 1999 again.. all Virtual Analog Synthesizers
in the studio right now... Techno Synth-Pop Industrial EBM anyone?
LOL! So this is right after I hooked everything up and I was running
a MIDI & audio check to make sure it's all working...
Nothing too serious, just making sure all I have to do is play the
Roland JX-305 and they all respond - at one time, on any part or
MIDI channel I need. I feel just like VNV Nation, Apop, Velvet Acid Christ, Depeche Mode, BT, Crystal Method, UBERZONE, Prodigy
coming on right now..... and a taste of 808 STATE.... oh yes!!!!!!!!

Thank you for watching!"

Quick Random Tests - Moon 517 VCF and Krisp1 OCTO LFO

Published on Dec 8, 2017 John L Rice

Moon Modular 517 Coupled Dual High&Low Pass VCF and Krisp1 OCTO Quadrature LFO

Additional items used at different times throughout:
Synth Tech MOTM: 300 VCOs, 310 VCOs, 800 EGs, 101 noise, 190 VCA, 650 MIDI-CV
Moon Modular: 511c EG, 526 mixers, 568 trigger sequencer
Modcan: 58B VCOs, 31B VCAs/mixer
Roland: A-88 keyboard, Integra-7 sound modules, RSP-550 effects
Yamaha: FS1R synthesizer
Allen-Heath: MixWizard 20S
Strymon: BigSky and Timeline pedals

Since I was learning how to use the Moon 517 and Krisp1 OCTO I decided to throw a camera up and record some of it but I didn't take the time to make sure I had everything setup well so the focus is weird and during editing I didn't take the time to explain what is taking place so . . . this may be of interest only to people looking to buy the Moon 517 or Krisp1 OCTO . . .and maybe not even then?? ;-)"

And a track:

He Who Brings Fire Waits For No One

Published on Dec 8, 2017 John L Rice

"This music was done at the tail end of the recording session for my previous video but I decided to make a separate video for it. It features the Moon 517 VCF and Krisp1 OCTO LFO although you don't really see them.

The patch is 4 MOTM-300 VCOs, two are set to static drone notes and sent to separate L & R Moon 526 mixers and two are voiced with MOTM-800 EGs and MOTM-190 VCAs and then also sent to the mixers. The output of the mixers go to the L & R inputs of the Moon 517 VCF in Separate mode and the Krisp1 OCTO is slowely modulating the 517.

I'm using a Roland A-88 keyboard to control the two voiced VCO via a MOTM-650 MIDI to CV module and the gate out is also routed to a Moon 511c EF that modulated the speed of the OCTO. And a Moon 568 trigger sequencer is modulating the 517 for some rhythmic content.

The outputs of the 517 go to an Allen and Heath MixWizard 20S mixer and well as the Roland Integra-7 that is playing the high voice brought in half way through and controlled by the same keyboard.

The only effects used are Strymon BigSky reverb and Timeline delay which are connected via the 20S effects send/return channels.

ElasticFX jam with a Waldorf Blofeld

Published on Dec 9, 2017 Oliver Greschke

"ElasticFX is soon to come out. It's basically a 4 channels effect machine with lots of different effects of different categories (Modulation, Pitch, Distortion, Filter, Delay, Reverb, Others).

The special twist of EFX is that there are different routing options how you connect 4 different effect slots AND similar to Elastic Drums, you can automate your tweaks of the effect parameters. Automation can get synced with other apps via Ableton Link and IAA sync then.

Elastic FX runs standalone (like in this video), or you can play it with other apps via Audiobus or InterApp-Audio (AUv3 is not supported)."

The Korg ARP Odyssey Song

Published on Dec 8, 2017 ProckGnosis

"Skip to 03:36 to bypass the beer and synth babble and hear the song. Skip to 06:50 to hear the isolated clips, tracks, and different combined bits from the song.

As I expressed in the ARP Odyssey Tidbits and Tips for Drum Sounds video (, I have been VERY impressed with this synth. Just really like the sound quite a bit, and it really is a well-made copy of a classic from the 70s.

The song is nothing great in demonstrating it's range, but it seemed perfectly appropriate for that 70s-ish, synthy vibe this thing inspires. As I pointed out with the Yamaha CS-5 video, I'm still blown away by what you can do with just one synth and some multitrack recording options.

If I had to sell large chunks of the synth collection, this would be one of the last to go I think."
