0 C0AST: imperfection of data

Published on Feb 1, 2018 C Nich0lls

"loop of data slowly deteriorates

loop played back from arturia keystep, loop realized by makenoise 0 coast, data eroded by strymon timeline (lofi)

Uses 0 coast arpeggiator. MIDI pages really add to this synth.

One take, live recording of 0 coast"

Fluorescent Grey's 5x Yamaha Vl1 Orchestral Performance Rig

Published on Jan 31, 2018 A Very Heavy Agenda

This is pretty amazing.

Some details via Fluorescent Grey:

"I thought you might be interested in this custom software interface I built to control 5 x Yamaha Vl1 physical modelling synthesizers as a single polyphonic instrument.


-1 x Doepfer Regelwerk controller sending MIDI CC to Emagic Sounddiver on a PC laptop with Yamaha Vl1 editor

-3 x Yamaha VL1m rack units

-2 x Yamaha VL1 keyboard units

(not pictured but integral to the setup)

-Cubase 9 running MIDI patterns off of Mac Laptop

-Keyboard input being filtered through Reaktor 6 custom patch converting polyphonic input to daisy chained 5x duo-phonic VL1 MIDI outputs

-Reaktor 6 custom patch running MIDI breath controller, pitch-bend, modulation and other CC data"

Audio Damage Releases Discord4

via Audio Damage

"Discord4 is the latest version of our most popular and long-lived product, our Discord stereo pitch shifter. Originally modeled from the H910, Discord has long since become its own effect and a studio standby, and this version includes major additions to further stretch its capabilities.

The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a "vintage" mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a "clean" mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a "granular" mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control.

Discord4 retains its pair of tempo-synced delays and bandpass filters from previous versions, and adds a reverb in the feedback loop (for easy access to "shimmer" effects). We have also replaced the modulation sources from the original with our all-new FLFO (Flexible LFO) design. Panorama controls are included to control the stereo width of the wet signal. Finally, soft saturation and limiting have been added or improved throughout the signal path, for an overall improved sound and added vintage-style warmth, and to allow for extreme feedback experiments without fear of overloading your DAW's channel."

Sequential Prophet-600 Programmable Analog Synthesizer Gligli Update SN 5695

via this auction

"Sequential Prophet-600 Programmable Analog Synthesizer with Gligli Update

This one is in very nice cosmetic condition (see the pics). Its power supply was recapped a few years ago with new electrolytics.

It also has the gligli update with the stable latest/final2.0 firmware. The gligli update really transforms the performance of the stock P600, as well as adding many new features."

Moog Multimoog Vintage Analog Synth SN 1711

via this auction

"This is a near mint Multimoog with the rarest Gold screening. It looks amazing. Immaculate. It's 100% original. It works perfect and sounds stunning.

This Multimoog has never been opened up! The aftertouch works superbly. I might have given the aftertouch bar a tiny tweak to get it real sensitive, but being it's virgin, I chose not too."

Audio gear used:

Patch Notes:
One DUSG plays the main drone, while the two NCOs are sent through VCAs, modulated by the two ADSR. The Sequencer Programmer provides a track of pitch CV for each of the oscillators. The DUSG is going through the top part of the Wave Multiplier. All audio is mixed and sent through the VCF, which is heavily modulated by a mix of the two NCO waveforms and the Gated Comparator. The Gated Comparator is the main modulation source in this patch, VC'ing pulse widths, wave shapes, wave shaping, and pretty much everything else that can be modulated. At the end im turning up the lower part of the Wave Multiplier, which receives the audio mix before the filter and totally crushes everything :D"

Included is a hardcase with wheels, OS 2.42 and a floppy boot disk (version 2.43).
The unit boots from floppy but still needs a drive connected to its internal SCSI port. Although the original hard drive is faulty (a well known issue), all other panel accessed functions have been checked and are fully functional..."
