Deckard's Dream Demos by Pandomonium

These were spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

The demos are by Pandomonium

"These are all played live to a WAV track, no MIDI, string ensemble (left hand) is from a VP330 emulator. Keyboard controller is Kurzweil Midiboard, probably one the best polyAT keyboards that exists for playing DD."

DD - BRBlues - TEST1

Vangelis Medley With Deckard's Dream

"Playing Vangelis with Deckard's Dream. Dynamics are purely using Polyphonic Aftertouch, no pedals or mod wheel are used."

Deckard's Nightmare Test 1

"Played live with Deckard's Dream. All 8 voice boards cranking."

"These demos were made before I modified my DD to have a more pronounced 'sawtooth glitch' that's one of the components for that special CS-80 sound. While the 'sawtooth glitch' is implemented in DD, it is really functional in upper registers only with the first release. I modified the circuitry to have the glitch present across the entire keyboard. This did affect the sound a tiny amount; I made an A/B comparison with Vangelis Blade Runner theme and it's tough to tell the difference (I'll post a youtube video later, as soundcloud wouldn't accept it).

I have to say that Deckard's Dream has come pretty close to sounding like the CS-80. The differences are mostly attributed to performance and control."

And via the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts:

"Now in its sixth year, the annual Brighton Modular Meet returns to the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.

Over the last five years modular synthesizers have become smaller and more accessible than ever before. With this has come a huge rise in their popularity and the scene continues to grow year on year.

The Brighton Modular Meet is one of the largest events of its kind in the UK and is host to synth DIY workshops, live performances, artist and developer talks and presentations; there will also be a free and open table-top meet led by industry experts and synth enthusiasts.

Visitors can see a wide range of audio and video modular synthesizers on show, from developers and manufacturers that range from small one-man-bands all the way up to large and long established companies, as well as synths designed and built by artists, musicians and DIY enthusiasts.

Bring your gear to the modular meet, and mingle with like-minded modular synth enthusiasts, developers, manufacturers and resellers."

NRSynth Alligator

via this auction

"The NRSynth brand is not so well known, but I’ll simply steal a line from guitar/amplifier ads to describe it – It’s all about the tone. The oscillators and the LP filter are based on the classic ARP design and the State Variable filter is based on the Steiner-Parker Synthacon filter. In addition, there’s a distortion circuit cloned from the classic Big Muff.

In addition to that great-sounding core, there’s LFOs, envelopes, a Wavefolder on VCO 3, Ring Mod, and a very nice Modulation Matrix setup.

The form factor makes it easy to get around and there’s a lot of places where the modulation amounts can be adjusted, the filters and VCA overdrive nicely, and the envelopes are snappy."

Serge Modular System - Januar 8, 2018 (short)

Published on Jan 9, 2018 batchas

"I nearly finished to build the case for my Serge modular and to rehouse the Paperface system and I could not resist to make a quick patch with it.

Quick overview:
3 notes slow sequence = NTO variable out on Paperface to mixer.
Other sequence = NTO variable out on STS to FREQ SHIFTER. FREQ SHIFTER Down and Up ouputs to mixer. Compressed out from FREQ SHIFTER back to NTO FM IN.
NTO sine out + PCO sine out to RING MOD. RING MOD to mixer.
Claves sound = pingged VCFQ sequenced by SWAMP.

Forgive me for the low video quality. I don't have my computer anymore, so I can't edit videos properly at the moment."
