SDS Digital RIT_M CVin+Knob Hold Feature

Published on Jan 28, 2018 freshnelly

"Here's a quick little video presenting the RIT_M's new CV in + CV Knob hold feature.
When the knob is moved, it generally switches out the Playing CV's for a live CV preview instead. (BTW this can be disabled)
For some control while using this to momentarily "overdub" the playing CV's with a Live CV, just hold the Loop pad and turn the knob a bit. The knob won't time-out and the preview ends immediately upon release of the Loop pad."

"He usually worked with Jean michel Jarre, he use the MDB polysequencer to control all his synth set, that's the pleasure of the hardware machine instead of nowaydays plugins."

Waldorf Blofeld Custom Patch H067 KMA

Published on Jan 28, 2018 Mark Pigott

"One Sine wave modulated by a zero frequency (or close to it) square wave (Osc2). All sorts of goodies like lagged mod wheel added to pitch. No filter was used for this, just like the way a real FM synth would do it. Of course, this was done differently.

A bog standard MS-20kit adds onto the sound"

Kit Assembly Video for the Eurorack High Hats Module

Ready Made

"Composition for expanded MakeNoise Shared System and 0coast.

body of the composition is focused on the morphagene, with wogglebug as the clock.
morphagene is providing the keyboard stabs out of R channel (into optomix ch 1) and percussive low sound out of L channel (into optomix ch 2).
wogglebug is sending int clock out to cvbus ch4, which is then distributed to x clock in of rene, clk in of morphagene, and clk input of echophon. woggle is also sending brst out to cvbus ch2, where it is distributed to gate in of 0coast and dgate in of telharmonic.
Maths is sending control signals from ch1 and 4 to cntrl inputs of optomix, ch 1 and 2.
optomix is sending sum out to echophon, which is sending mix out to the cvbus's stereo out (L channel)
Rene is sending x gate out to trig in (ch1) of maths, and y gate to tring in (ch 4) of maths. Also sending qcv out to cvbus ch1, which is then distributed to both the v/oct in on the 0coast, the v/oct of osc2 on the dpo, and the degree in of the telharmonic.
telharmonic is sending P out to 0coast's balance external input.
the dpo is sending osc2 square out to modemix ch2 in.
0coast is sending dynamics out to chA input of rosie.
pressure points is sending ch1 gate output to modemix ch2 carrier cv input.
modemix is sending ch2 out to chB input of rosie.
rosie is sending the fxsend output to the input of erbeverb.
erbeverb seding L and R out to fxreturn of rosie.

patch is being monitored from stereo out of the cvbus and stereo out of rosie.

no external processing."

Best of CGS Serge BOG + SWAMP Jam #TTNM

Published on Jan 28, 2018

"After spending a few days figuring out how to get things running, I finally jammed on two-thirds of my new Serge Modular system for the first time, using the CGS BOG and SWAMP panels. The MARSH will join the two soon. PATCH NOTES BELOW!


PixelNoises Synth T-Shirts by The Tuesday Night Machines:


Audio gear used:
Best of CGS BOG & SWAMP Boats

Patch Notes:
The two NCOs are driven by the Sequencer Programmer which plays four two-note chords. All audio goes through the low pass filter, being modulated by one DUSG decay envelope. The other DUSG modulates a VCA through which White Noise is fed to create a percussion sound. One Utility LFO is the master clock. The other LFO is running at audio rate at constant pitch, going through the modulated Wave Multiplier into the Mixer with the Noise and the two VCOs. The mix is then sent through the VCF. The Gated Comparator acts as the main modulator in this patch, changing both DUSG's decay envelope times, PWM of the VCOs and wave folding of the Utility LFO (which creates the "melody" on top of the chords)."

Emu Emulator II+ (Includes Floppies & Lotharek Floppy Emulator + SD card w/Sound Banks)

via this auction

"Included are 24 floppy disk of sound banks and 24 blank floppy disk for recording your own samples on (if you decide to leave the original floppy drive in).

I'm also including a Lotharek floppy drive Emulator. You can swap out the original floppy drive with this and play sound banks that are loaded on an SD card. This also includes an SD card LOADED with a near complete library of the OMI Universe of Sounds sound banks. TONS of great sounds in here. It includes the power cable adaptor and mounting bracket, but you will need to make a new ribbon cable to connect and use the drive. Besides that it's plug and play! A small note, I've seen videos where peoples Lotharek emulates some sort of "loading" noise, I'm not sure what the difference is or if it's some hidden setting, but mine does not make this noise."

DIY digital controlled analog monophonic synthesizer

Published on Jan 28, 2018 merlin07756

"This is a demonstration of my homebrewn monophonic analog synthesizer. It's based on a modded PAiA Fatman tied to an Arduino Mega. The keyboard is salvaged from an old M-Audio Keystation 49, the front panel was designed in Inkscape and printed online.


* monophonic
* 2 Sawtooth VCOs (more to come)
* 1 software based LFO (five waveforms) which controls filter envelope
* Creamy 12db low-pass filter (HP/BP yet to come)
* ADSR and filter envelope
* built in delay and distortion effects
* Arpeggiator and sequencer (latched and transposable of course)
* MIDI control and sync
* modwheel controls pitch based by LFO
* 4x20 LCD for control of the digital parameters

I've got the idea from - check him out :)

The synth is still not finished. I want to add minimum one VCO, a ring modulator, second LFO and some more modules. Also there are some nasty software bugs (especially with the arpeggiator and timing in general) which have to be resolved...

To be continued..."

Caitlin's explains her team's Astro Pi Code and jams with waveforms created from historic ISS data.

Published on Jan 28, 2018 The Mad Music Machine

"Team STEAMCademy's Astro Pi code is almost complete and here Caitlin demonstrates how it will (hopefully!) be used to collect data on board the International Space Station.

In a previous video she demonstrated how she can use the data to generate waveforms using the Synthesis Technology Waveedit program, and if successful in the Astro Pi competition she will use it to generate wavetables from this code.

Caitlin then has a quick jam with the Moog Mother-32, Roland System-1m and the e352 Cloud Terrarium using wavetables she has previously generated from historic ISS data."

Lush Warm Analog Vocoder, Strings, Human Voice, Vibrato, Classic Roland Ensemble and more.

If you are considering investing in a VP-330 this is likely the one of the best you will ever find. The 1979 MK1 in my opinion more desirable to the MK2."

Modor NF-1 Digital Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Modor NF-1 synth is a digital DSP synth very comparable to the classic Virtual Analog synths, but Modor is moving further on from this point. We use the classic structure of VA-synths, with oscillators, filters and effects, with parameters that can be modulated using LFO's and envelopes. But every element has been rethought and reinvented. In a digital way.

The NF-1 has a classic 12dB/oct resonant filter, but we are also giving it a versatile formant filter, never seen in hardware before! It does make classic sawtooth waves, but we're also including a lot of other brand new modulatable noisy waveforms! It has a classic delay effect, but we make every parameter editable to give way to special unexpected effect types! And so on..."

Doomsday Beats (Akai Tom Cat thru Moog Mother 32, MF Delay & Freqbox)

Published on Jan 28, 2018 HardtekStudios

"This one is all kinds of crazy and out of control! I have the Akai Tom Cat going into the audio in of the Moog Mother-32, then thru the Minifooger Delay and finally into the Moogerfooger Freqbox! Lots of weird modulation & gating created the weakening/strengthing effect of the whole signal. Little Godzilla is just hanging out on the one yellow cable."
