Rainmaker: A Brief Stroll Through The Rain (Preset Walkthrough With CV Modulation)

Published on Jan 12, 2018 intellijel

"This video provides a quick walkthrough of just a few of Rainmaker's presets, while using cascading modulation from Quadra & Expander. Richard Devine's presets in particular really come to life when modulated by CV."

Hawkeye - Zero Circuit (C64 SIDs vs Ensoniq ESQ-M, live)

Published on Jan 12, 2018 Maelstroem3

Note the yellow Waldorf micro Q Rack with custom chrome knobs.

"The MBLoopA is a fun tool to record ideas, while it lacks quite a lot of features of its bigger brother, the MIDIbox sequencer, it focusses on the essentials, offers an easy workflow and is totally sufficient to record smaller tracks - the graphical noteroll display helps a lot to visualize what is going on.

This live jam (recorded directly from the synths) also features the MBProgramma, that controls the Ensoniq ESQ-m (bassline).

The MBLoopA has six MIDI looping tracks, that can be independently muted and unmuted - also, it offers eight "scenes" that can be switched through, once again, this is used for transposing.

Synths used:
Yamaha FS1R: First lead
2x C64 8580 SIDs (in a MB6582): Second lead
Ensoniq ESQ-m (ESQ-1 in rack): bassline
Elektron Machinedrum: drums
MFB Dominion I: percussive synth voice
Alesis Andromeda + Kawai K5000R: Pad

Hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for watching and listening!

I had worked on this MIDI project in 2016 and my old
hard drive crashed & I thought these files were lost forever!
Today I found a lost backup disc & these were on it!! :)
I did these two mixes of "Kashmir", the "Pure Mix" (00:05)
has a more traditional Classic Rock / Prog Rock analog
synth sound while the "Dark Mix" (08:15) is more Synthpop,
Industrial, EBM, Trance Etc. I know the timing is off on a
few bits but this song is a really hard song to cover,
especially doing an all analog synthesizer version. LOL

Circuit Mono Station + PO-12 Rhythm Jam

Published on Jan 12, 2018 Enrique Martinez

"Quick Jam using nothing but the Circuit Mono Station and the Pocket Operator Rhythm aka PO-12 - All Hardware!
I used the Sync out to keep the PO-12 in sync with the Circuit Mono Station. Then I fed the audio from the PO-12 back into the Circuit Mono Station to utilize the Filter and Distortion sections"

Waldorf Microwave XT Shadow 1998 Charcoal Gray

via this auction

"This is a 10-voice Rev 3 Microwave XT Shadow, one of only 666 ever made. I bought it earlier this year and used it to build Edisyn's Microwave 2/XT/XTk patch editor. It is a wonderful machine and I love it, but when I bought it I promised myself I would sell it at year's end, and so I am."

via the seller: "It's a pretty rare machine -- a genuine Shadow I rescued from a bad environment in Italy and then used to build an extensive big patch editor."

Moog Source Vintage Analog Synthesizer SN 2851

via this auction

"This listing is for one Moog Source analog synth. It is great shape with some dings here and there but mechanically fully-functional. It is an early model with the factory CV/gate+DIN sync kit installed. Front panel is working great. Unit has been recapped and serviced recently. The sound is completely unreal, only comparable to the early Model D and Moog Modular synths. Includes power cable."

Serge SLAB Panel Nr 1 - ResEQ feedback & RingMod orgy

Published on Jan 12, 2018 batchas


Checking some modules on my fresh made Scrotum Lab panel.
I should rather say 'nearly finished', as I still need to finalize my own AM/RING circuit.

Still no computer atm to make a better video, but here's the first recording... Badass Resonant Equalizer feedback with RingMod delight.

I finally assembled the few boards I had populated a long time ago (plus a mixer I did a couple of months ago) on one panel. The next panel will be dedicated to sequencing and automated switches (performance oriented).
The third and last one? I have time to change my mind a hundred times again before it's even printed, but it will also make use of the boards and projects I have in stock and the own circuits I need to develop."

Never Ending Noise Sample Pack by Outsider Sound Design

Published on Dec 18, 2017 Outsider Sound Design

via Outsider Sound Design

"The Never Ending Noise sample pack was created using twelve unique hardware setups with the full intention of harvesting harsh noise, granular static, buzzes, drones, alien transmissions, and melting circuits. 472 sound files. Over 3.4GB of content. 24 bit 96k sample rate. This sample pack was created using over 70 different hardware devices and guitar effects pedals. Using hardware samplers, we fed in sounds that were created by transforming images of 13 famous abstract expressionist paintings into audio files and then further deconstructed them. Yes, we went all the way with this one.

Esoteric by design, there are so many distinct ways these sounds can be incorporated into your music productions or media projects. We hope this sound pack offers you unlimited inspiration."
