Mason Self TRILLER Midi Pitch Controller

Published on Jan 1, 2018 Mason Self

"Triller is an alternative Midi Controller for sending pitch bend messages."

via Mason Self

"I'm very excited to share this project.

I've been curious about different approaches to designing MIDI controllers. For this first project, I'm focusing on harnessing pitch bend in a more flexible way than a pitch bend wheel, and a more fun way than - God forbid - the pencil tool in your DAW.

I've made a very small batch of Trillers and I'd love to share them with you. Since this is still a beta version, I'm asking $150 + shipping (that's cost of materials and a tiny bit extra for labor). I'm also asking that you go the distance with me and give me feedback to make the Triller even better. It's fully functional, but I have hunch that you can help me hone in the last 5-15% of the design / functionality / use.

Please watch this tutorial and make sure you understand the specs before purchasing. I do not think the Triller is for everyone, but could be an exciting new tool for some.

Macbeth's Elements Synthesizer Droning (Have a Nice Trip)

Published on Jan 1, 2018 martinjazz78

"(For your maximum experience good speakers or headphones are recommended while watching the video)

Ken Macbeth's Elements Synthesizer droning while ring modulated with Moogerfooger MF-102. Its Carrier Out goes into Ext. Amp In on the Elements and gets pretty bad, I would say.

Modulations option on the Elements Synthesizer are indeed very complex and rich and quickly gets you to rather distant galaxies. On-board delay (also heavily modulated) adds great organic feel. If you may, listen also with subwoofer, so you enjoy also the Elements' low end pumping.

Only Elements' internal on-board effects (reverb and delay) used. No further processing. Tweaked live on the fly, no over-dubbing etc.

I hope you are having a nice trip and your landing is going to be safe ;)"

AI Synthesis AI004 DIY Eurorack OTA Filter First Look

Published on Jan 1, 2018 AI Synthesis

"A really rough mid-recording preview of the AI004. Note that because I was recording, there is some compression, delay, and reverb on the synth audio. I was recording for the new force damage album and thought I would take a break to quickly record the new AI004 Eurorack DIY Filter from This is a candid, off the cuff recording so the mic is just a condenser sitting on the shelf, I have a cough, and the rack isn't lit for recording, so take it all with a grain of salt."

"16 NEW PRESETS! Hand-recorded and crafted for you! <3 Thank you for all the 5-star reviews and nice comments. Your kindness has inspired us to work harder on this and future apps (like our upcoming free AUv3 synth)
+ Source Code Released: Use our free code to make your own app like this (

In addition to bug fixes, this update adds small things including:
+ Always on/don't sleep toggle: Use this when playing live with a MIDI Keyboard to keep app from falling asleep (MIDI button for option)
+ Delay Reset: Removes the delay artifacts if you turn the delay off/on. This also clears out the delay when switching presets
+ Ability to turn background audio on/off to save battery consumption (press the MIDI button above keyboard)
+ Videos button with links to several great videos of people using FM Player creatively!
+ Saves MIDI Channel setting between launches
+ Patch #s now displayed in Preset view"

Digitakt + RK-002 POLYPHONIC synthesizer

Published on Jan 1, 2018 Dave mech

"In this video I thoroughly demo the rk-002 cable by retrokits in combination with the Elektron Digitakt. The Digitakt becomes a wonderful polyphonic synthesizer!

It's the longest video I recorded up till now. I start building a patch from scratch. If you want to hear more complex immediately sounds, just skip to 15+ minutes :)

You can order the rk-002 here (select the Modifier firmware):"

I hear these are also useful for chaining KORG Volcas for additional polyphony.

"Got a Korg Electribe EM-1 the other day and decided to bed it in with a bit of underworld, very versatile and powerful little unit.

The Korg Minilogue is doing the main synth line, adding some nice analog warmth into the mix."

Spotted this one on the excellent discchord.
