FX Capacitor Demo by SSL


Published on Oct 24, 2017 Doug Slocum

You might remember Atomic Shadow's pic of his FX Capacitor posted yesterday here. the above is the official demo by SSL. Below you'll find additional details on the module.

"Demonstrates the 15 awesome stereo audio effects produced by the FX Capacitor module from Synthetic Sound Labs.

It's 100% compatible with the Synthesizers.com MU style."



via SSL

"What has your synth been missing all these years? Effects – damn it!

At last, an MU module that delivers 15 near studio-quality effects – All in just 2 MU width. Oh Yeah! Very sweet!

Reverb 1
Reverb 2
Reverb-Chorus
Reverb-Flange
Reverb-Tremolo
Sci-Fi Shimmer
Space Shimmer
Stavely Springs
Infinite Freeze
Reverse Reverb
Pitch Shift
Pitch-Echo
Flanger
Slocum Phaser
Frequency Shifter

Select your effect using the Program knob, and the convenient LCD display will show the currently selected effect and it’s parameters. Up to three parameters (depending on the selected effect) that can be adjusted from the INIT controls on the front panel or voltage control them by using the CV-A, CV-B & CV-C inputs.

The FX Capacitor is built around the awesome Spin Semiconductor FV-1 chip (Spin Semiconductor). The FV-1’s seven built-in effects are already awesome, but SSL just couldn’t stop there. Oh no. We had to add 8 more carefully chosen effects that will expand your sonic palette.

Space Shimmer is the brain-child of Gary Worsham. Shimmer is a type of reverb that applies upward pitch shifting (usually by octaves) into the feedback loop for some really ethereal sounds.

Stavely Springs is courtesy of Don Stavely. Don has figured out how to accurately model some of the original dual spring reverb units from the 1970’s. They sound great. If you pulse them, they even “sploing”. The only thing they can’t do is react to physically kicking your module to shake the springs.

The Flanger and Slocum Phaser have a cool feature that allows the Depth knob and CV input to have manual control when the Speed knob is fully counter-clockwise. You can also select between 4, 6, 8 or 10 phase stages on the Slocum Phaser.

Some programs have stereo inputs, some are summed L + R to mono before hitting the effects, and some have different effects on the L & R channels. Play, play, play – and enjoy!

Since effects and feedback settings can conspire to overload the 1350 module, there’s “CLIP” LED on the front panel. Depending on the signal source, a bit of input attenuation might be required to keep things from getting out of hand. Here’s a trick you can use to control the input level – Plug your audio input into the FB_IN inputs instead of the SIG_IN. You can then use the FEEDBACK control as an attenuator. Cool, huh?"

Silent Night with the Synthtech E370


Published on Dec 23, 2017
Performed using the Synthesis Technology E370 Quad Morphing VCO, played as a 4-voice synthesizer using MPE controlled by a Roli Rise 49. This was recorded live, no filtering of the E370, with a phaser, convolution reverb and delay in post processing. The only sound generator is the E370.

The 4 voices of the 370 are identical, in 4-voice cloud + morph mode. The MIDI signals from the Rise are converted into control voltages using an Encore Expressionist (8 CVs + 4 gates) and the CV Toolkit software (6 CVs) for a total of 14 CVs and 4 gates.

Each of the 4 voices has 3 independent CVs controlling pitch, volume from MIDI velocity, and cloud spread from the Roli Rise glide (finger position from the front and back). One additional CV controlling overall volume is controlled by an expression pedal, and the last CV from a slider on the Rise controls the morph waveform, which is the same for all 4 voices. In addition the waveform is morphed around the value set by the slider by a slow LFO triangle wave. The note dynamics are controlled by 4 ADSR envelopes triggered by the 4 gates."

Ensoniq FIZMO realtime transwave synthesizer


via this auction

"I previously had this listed as not working. I thought this was in need of repair, but all along it was a bad power adaptor. I found a spare adaptor and the synth is indeed working great."

Note these still require a voltage regulator fix to be safe. You can find details on the Fizmo fix on Carbon111.

Akai AX80 Synthesizer


via this auction

"This Akai AX80 synthesizer is in good condition. There is moderate wear on one of the front corners, and one of the keys on the keyboard was broken, then glued back into place (works fine). Otherwise normal wear for a 35 year old keyboard.

The akai works great, and all the led light are working and intact! I’ve noticed that if I haven’t turned it on in a while, shows it’s age and tends to have a “warm up” period, where it fades in an out and plays “fuzzy” (volume) until it has been on for a bit and works fine."

Roland Introduces Cloud Version of the Classic JV-1080





Left pic via Ask.Audio

And the announcement via Roland:

"4.8 Holiday Update is Live!

First, the big news...

This holiday season, the folks at Roland Cloud have been working extra hard to bring you a giant dose of holiday cheer. For starters, we’re overjoyed to deliver the highly-anticipated, Roland Cloud software adaptation of one of the most popular synthesizers in history: The Roland JV-1080.

The most famous of the Roland PCM powerhouses, the Roland JV-1080 is the ‘down to the circuit’ inspiration for the Roland Cloud JV-1080 software plugin. It was a huge success with artists and producers, and eventually lead to even more powerful models in the series such as the JV-2080 and XV-5080.

While the Roland Cloud JV-1080 has the look, feel and factory patches of the original, it has the expanded effects, additional waveforms, and increased polyphony of its successors. It’s like the JV-1080 you know and love, but enhanced to go toe to toe in your DAW with any contemporary software synthesizer.

If you are a Roland Cloud Core Member or are enjoying our 30 day free trial, you should see the JV-1080 available for download and installation via Roland Cloud Manager!"

"Features

PCM Heaven
Throughout the 1990s, Roland digital synthesizers based on PCM sampled waveforms formed the basis of music as diverse as R&B, pop, hip-hop, new wave and film scores. Some of these sounds, originally meant to mimic acoustic instruments, became so iconic themselves that they’ve become a permanent part of the collective musical sound palette. Some say it’s the most recorded sound module in history, and lately artists have been utilizing these sounds again, in new and modern ways.

The JV-1080 is the most famous of the Roland PCM powerhouses, and the inspiration for the Roland Cloud JV-1080. It was a huge success with artists and producers, eventually leading to even more powerful models like the JV-2080 and XV-5080. While the Roland Cloud JV-1080 has the look, feel and factory patches of the original, it has the expanded effects, additional waveforms, and increased polyphony of its successors. Bottom line: this is the ultimate in 90s-era Roland sound—now in a modern plugin for your DAW.

More of everything
The Roland Cloud JV-1080 has everything artists love about the original hardware plus new capabilities from its successors. Including the 448 waveforms of the original, the JV-1080 plugin has over 1000 waveforms to combine and mutate into fresh, original patches. Effects are an integral part of the JV-1080 sound and here the original 40 MFX types have been expanded to 78, along with more reverb and chorus algorithms. The Roland Cloud JV-1080 also features double the polyphony, two additional time-variant low-pass filters, a step LFO and enhanced Matrix Control functions.

Prime Digital
Dripping with retro-cool stabs and effects, iconic guitars and strings, and evocative plucked and ethnic instruments, the JV-1080 is also a deep, programmable synthesizer capable of some neat digital tricks. Layers of meticulous PCM samples, two LFOs, multiple time variant filters, a flexible modulation matrix and effects galore make the JV-1080 a formidable weapon for those who know how to wield it. The Roland Cloud JV-1080 has full graphical control of parameters making tone-crafting feel new and exciting, whether it’s adding authentic 90s vibe to a track or reimagining these sounds in new ways."
