Merry Christmas!!!


Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Here are a few pics of the MATRIXSYNTH Christmas tree. You should be able to spot a few synths. :)

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I want to thank all of you for making the site what it is, and I want to give huge shout out to supporters of the site. You make the site possible. We live in a great time for synths. I like to think this site helps spread the word on our amazing world. Merry Synthmas!

---

As far as what's on the tree: you should spot a Minimoog complete with manual, a vintage Moog Model 1P 5U modular system, and a new 5U Synthesizers.com system. The Minimoog and Model 1P were from microscopics as part of a promo for their gas0095 and High Skies releases years ago. The image used for the Model 1P actually comes from Tone Tweakers. It is quite possible it is actually this one for sale. Update: I heard back from Tone Tweakers. It looks like the one currently for sale is a different one.

3 Merry Modules #38: Tides, Clouds, Ears


Published on Dec 24, 2017 Comparative Irrelevance

"Happy droning holidays to all! I hope you're enjoying the day with your loved ones. And even if you don't celebrate Foodmas, there's hopefully nothing stopping you from enjoying some modular synthesis this winter morning! :)

Patch notes:
I'm playing a sample from a completely randomly chosen song through Ears and into Clouds, while using the envelope follower and threshold gate signal generated from the sample to control the patch. I'm using Tides as a typical LFO to scrub back and forth through Clouds' buffer by way of the Position parameter, shuffling the input around somewhat.

The gate signal from Ears enables Clouds' winter themed freeze. As the sample reaches its crescendo, the buffer is frozen and held until the levels recede. However, the Position modulation keeps the frozen buffer from sounding static. Ears' envelope follower is patched to Tides' level, so the louder parts (i.e. when freeze is engaged) have the greatest modulation range – the most movement of buffer playback position, in other words.

You may notice that I have Clouds' Pitch turned up fairly high. This is because the sample itself is played back at a much slower than natural rate and is consequently pitched down, so I'm compensating for some of that pitch drop in the granular playback.

Thanks for watching!"

Published on Dec 24, 2017 Chris Randall

"I was just horsing about trying to figure out routing, and recorded some simple noodles on the Linnstrument, with Madrona Labs Kaivo providing the synth sounds. Enticing rhythms via Nanoloop Mono via Eventide H9, drones and noises on the four-track (from a tape I had made for another track, natch.)

The Linnstrument and Kaivo/Aalto is a powerful combination, but it's a pain to set up in Live. Probably easier in Mainstage or Logic, but ewww."

h0nh1m X COLLECTIVE - Haptic Organ


Published on Dec 23, 2017 h0nh1m

"The latest interactive installation by h0nh1m (Chris Cheung), a new media / sound artist (previously led his studio XEX to create Prismverse) and COLLECTIVE, an international award winning architecture design studio, is an reinterpretation of various musical instruments juxtapose with each other in its form, visual feedback and interactive engagement.

Haptic Organ - commissioned by Fashion Walk
Project link: http://h0nh1m.com/haptic-organ/

‘Haptic’ originates from the greek word ‘haptikos’: any sort of information received through touch is haptic, as it appears in this installation, it is based on kinesthetic (expressing force or position) communication, in which the motion of the hand initiates visual displays and sound variations, thus allowing audiences to receive familiar feedbacks to learn how to operate the installation as an instrument.

The creative duo COLLECTIVE and h0nh1m designed Haptic Organ with an intention to make music tangible, visible, sharable among each other to encourage group interactive moments in celebration of the Christmas season.

It is in the form of a 4-meter tall spiraling instrument with the recognizable elements of the strings; music notes are prompted with the aid of the non-contact haptic interface that detects hands movement in the air, while each of the 20 transparent tubes, like a pipe organ, wrap round the spiral, each encased with a metallic ball which rises up and down, dancing inside the tube through initiated air movement by hand motion; users received the visual feedback of dancing balls and can freely improvise his or her music with the aid of eight sensors giving eight notes across an octave, in addition to four that gives tones of musical instruments like strings, woodwinds, harps and sleigh bells, with volume controllable with ascending and descending movements of the hands over the haptic interfaces.

h0nh1m creates the music as a blessing for joy and peace in the Christmas season. Borrowing the melody of ‘Happy Christmas (War is Over)’ written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, it was a work of peace activism, looking towards for peace, equality, the end of wars and discrimination.

Christmas - Dave Smith Pro 2 - Waldorf Blofeld


Published on Dec 23, 2017 100 Things I Do

"A Christmas Noodle on the Pro 2 and Blofeld (Actually more a Christmas tune). Its a little more Berlin School inspired and a little darker than regular Christmas music. I managed to pull some very nice Horn, bass and bell sounds from the Blofeld. The blofeld still amazes me how versatile it can be. Hope everyone has an excellent X-Mas.. One last clip to come to end of the year!"

Hartmann Neuron Synthesizer


via this auction

"100% functional and in EXCELLENT physical condition! This synth has only light signs of use, with only a few very subtle surface markings/scratches, most of which are hardly noticeable. Overall it's super clean! The receiving nut for the top/right hex screw that holds the wood end cap in place was broken off and missing, so we epoxied a replacement in place. We did our best to align it with the screw, however in doing so, it made it so the upper/middle hex screw does not quite align with it's nut. We thought it was best to have the top/right screw in place, so the middle/center screw is not installed (although we do have it to include in the sale) --- see 2nd to last photo. Comes with upgraded hard drive, original box (as well as the original outer shipping box), original manual, original Hartmann USB-to-Ethernet Adapter, and Hartmann Neuron Sound in Motion DVD (contains interviews with Axel Hartmann, Hans Zimmer, plus more). No other accessories are included in the sale."

Vintage Roland Modular Synth 100m Module 172 SN 00001 w/ Original Box


via this auction

"Here is a rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of vintage Roland history with serial number 00001!

A little information about the Roland System 100m module #172 phase shifter / audio delay / gate delay / LFO

The phase shifter and audio delay can be used for producing spatial effects and each can be controlled from an external control voltage source. Both effects include effect ON/OFF switches. The built-in control LFO has both normal and inverted outputs. The gate delay can be used to provide a delayed output from a pulse source, or it can be used as a pulse shaper. The gate delay has a built-in high gain amplifier with a THRESHOLD control so that low level pulses, e.g. recorded on tape, can be amplified and shaped into a form which will trigger synthesizer functions."
