::vtol:: until I die

::vtol:: until I die from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

"This installation operates on unique batteries that generate electricity using my blood. The electric current produced by the batteries powers a small electronic algorithmic synth module. This module creates generative sound composition that plays via a small speaker. The blood used in the installation was stored up gradually over 18 months. The conservation included a number of manipulations to preserve the blood’s chemical composition, color, homogeneity and sterility to avoid bacterial contamination. The total amount of blood conserved was around 4.5 liters; it was then diluted to yield 7 liters, the amount required for the installation. The blood was diluted with distilled water and preservatives such as sodium citrate, antibiotics, antifungal agents, glucose, glycerol etc. The last portion of blood (200ml) was drawn from my arm during the performance presentation, shortly before the launch of the installation.

Solina String Synthesizer SN 0133047

via this auction

"Very rare vintage Solina string synth, only 100 made. This one is immaculate.

Excellent condition having been recently (2016) serviced by James Walker at Synth Repair.
I doubt there will be a better example. This is priced accordingly due to condition and how hard these are to come by."

Roland JX-8P Classic 1980's Analogue Synth

via this auction

"Classic 6 Voice Synth with velocity dynamics and aftertouch from the mid 1980's. Works great and comes with a solid custom flightcase.

Can be easier edited via a computer with the free editor / patch librarian: JAX’8P V.2.1.0

There are twelve oscillators that are digitally controlled which means that they stay in tune, and give the JX8P a silky smooth sound.

The six filters are all analog, and feature a unique configuration that was designed by Roland to have a smooth character.

The analog sound engine features two envelope generators, cross mod, sync, and can be layered in a unison mode (4 osc per key, 3 note poly) or mono (12 osc per key, mono).

The MIDI implementation is the main feature of the JX8P that makes it so much greater than other polysynths such as the JX3P or Juno range."

AJH Synth Minimod & Waldorf KB37: Eurorack - Modular Moog Model D

Cirklon Jam: AJH Synth, Oberheim Two Voice, Tempest

Published on Nov 5, 2017 nikarga

"A quick test drive of my newly acquired Cirklon... A simple 1 bar loop with a fair amount of wiggling :)

- AJH Minimod System with Dual LFO's and DH-ADSRs
- Oberheim Two Voice Pro
- Make Noise B&G Shared System
- DSI Tempest
- Eventide H9 effects pedal with Blackhole Reverb...

Recorded in 1 pass with no additional effects other than a touch of reverb on the Tempest.

I hope you enjoy the sounds.."

via this auction

"This is THE fattest sounding (and most accurate) recreation of the vintage Model D. It is based on the legendary RA Moog transistor VCOs from the late 1960s used in the Moog modulars. Only around 300 very early vintage Model D's used these VCOs. Moreover, as part of the package you also get the Dual LFO & VCA module providing 2 free running LFO's that can be sync'd together!

The KB37 is a fantastic case with normalized pitch/gate connections from the Keybed to the VCOs reducing overall cable clutter. Built from metal, it is very sturdy and comes with full Midi In/Out and Midi over USB. It also has line outs and an on-board arpeggiator, clock, glide and note priority features with ZERO menu diving.

What you get:

1x Waldorf KB37 
3x AJH Vintage VCOs
1x AJH Noise & Glide module
1x AJH Dual LFO 
1x AJH Mult with overdrive switch for VCF & VCA
1x custom dust cover imported from US

MSRP new: £2,850

I am a serious gear collector and all my items are immaculate."

Fragment - Granular/Additive soundscapes & pixels-based delay

Published on Dec 10, 2017 Fragment Synthesizer

"Fragment is an online collaborative additive / spectral / granular live-coding web. platform, the spectrum is created by a live GPU script, the generated visual is then converted to audio by an additive/granular/spectral process.

Fragment is a programmable noise-of-all-kinds software and excel at sound design by combining two of the most powerful synthesis process with a live coding aspect, Fragment also excel at visuals.

This is a video of a live additive + granular ambient soundscapes session which demonstrate pixels-based delay and the soon to be released update of the improved granular synthesis/sound engine.

The video also demonstrate some kind of "vector based synthesis" by using a XY widget in Open Stage Control (through OSC) with the 4 channels volume mapped onto the widget axis resulting in cross-fading of the 4 channels.

The sound in this video is produced by 4 audio server instances (distributed synthesis) on a single i7 6700 machine, the overall CPU load can be seen on the top left corner along with number of partials for each channels, the load generally sit around 5% with peak at ~30% @28:00.

Most of the sounds heard in this video has a delay applied with a simple pixels-based delay (4 lines) which mean that the delay come from Fragment, not from the DAW, this delay can be heard on several sections and can be differentiated by its parameters being tweaked, notably around @22:00.

The granular synthesis engine was battle-tested and improved, many bugs were fixed resulting in big improvement on the sound quality, moreover pitch shifting is now implemented with linear resampling.

The audio server was also improved and is now able to drop frames meaning that if the client is too late sending its pixels frames, the audio server compensate by retaining its last state, this improve the audio quality greatly when few frames are dropped, which is to be expected with browser reflow or high load, frames drop can be heard extensively in videos previously released, there is now near zero audio issues due to frames drop.

The update should be released this month.

9 samples are loaded and used in this video, all of them are single sounds of real or virtual instruments.

The Seventh Wave Festival of Electronic Music: Number Five

"Fifth Electronic Music Festival comes to Birmingham and this time around it includes an all-day free electronic music event featuring talks, demonstrations, interactive sessions, synth manufacturer attendance, a room for attendees to set up and show off their synth gear and a number of free live performances!

In March of 2018 the fifth ‘The Seventh Wave Festival of Electronic Music’ takes place across three days. For a relatively small festival The Seventh Wave continues to get some of the biggest names in electronic and progressive music.

This time around you can feast your eyes (and ears!) on Wolfgang Flur (Ex-Kraftwerk) who, let’s not forget, is one of the original members of Kraftwerk and Ulrich Schnauss, who as well as being a distinguished solo performer in his own right is a ‘modern day’ member of electronic giants Tangerine Dream. To cap it all, the Festival finishes with Ian Boddy (DiN Record Label Owner) who is one of the founding fathers of the electronic music scene in the United Kingdom.

Tickets can be purchased for the individual paid events from Skiddle and for the free event which runs from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm people can just turn up on the day, stay for a few minutes, or get hooked and end up of staying all day!"

I Wish and Superstition sort of

Published on Dec 9, 2017 Randy Piscione

"This is a mash-up of two Stevie Wonder songs, I Wish and Superstition. My right hand is still in alot of pain from a motorcycle accident on October 1st and not completely responding but I did what I could. 4-legged cameo is Charlotte. Lucky she didn't jump on the stool. Would've been a cool video 'though. Details below.

High lead is a Roland A-37 playing Animoog on an old iPad, pad is played on a Roland A-70 using its internal sounds, a Roland Alpha Juno 2, Korg Microstation and 6 Shruthis. Clavinet is a Kurzweil K2600XS and the Rhodes is obvious.

Bass is from the Eurorack modular, using a Eurokorn sequencer, RYO Paths switch, YuSynth Minimoog filter and Living VCO. The 3 channels from the Eurokorn go into the switch and are manually switched from a footswitch at my right foot using a Monome Walk module. Drums are from two Bastl Tea Kicks and Manhattan Analog SVVCF filter. Envelope generators are from Doepfer and Nonlinearcircuits. VCAs are MFOS bits I put together.

The, uh, groove on the bass, the double-plucking sort of thing, is done with the delay from a Disting Mk 1. That was trial and error."

Soulsby Atmegatron Song - Aireo's Theme

Published on Dec 10, 2017 Oscillator Sink

"Here's an energetic little song which was written and recording using the wonderful Soulsby Atmegatron. I hope you enjoy it!

Everything you hear (including the drums) is coming from the Atmegatron using its 'default' firmware. Very little processing has been applied during mixing - basically nothing more than rolling some bottom end off a few sounds, so it's pretty much Raw Atmegatron you're hearing!

I hope you enjoy it - I had a blast composing and recording it!

The visualisation is done with the excellent "PrettyScope" from Soundemote:"

"It features low-z outputs (closer to mic than instrument) on xlr jacks. Going straight into my keyboard amp, to me it sounds much cleaner and better than other 6 operator racks/modules I've played in the past. It has a common patch set in tf 1 & 2, that detuned, gives a thick and full sound across 16 voices. Tf #3 currently has a soundtrack type patch set. 18 operators total, and this rack is quite on the heavy side, so the shipping calculator will have the correct price"
