Monoseq - Elektron Analog Four and Octatrack ambient

Published on Feb 7, 2018 monoseq

"Using the trig-conditions on the analog four I made a very long sequence which rarely repeats. The patch I made was copied across all four tracks to give it a polyphony feel. I then pretty much left it to run and do its thing with a really slow lfo bringing in the delay every so often. As for the Octatrack, I sampled some wooden balls for some percussion and used some samples I got from a friends kr55 (i think it was that one) drum machine, I also recorded a dodgy guitar riff on to tape cassette and threw that in. Other samples used were from mutable instruments rings and other stuff I've sampled. Pretty bad ending, sorry about that plus it dragged on a bit too long... abit like this description. I'm going to try and do at least one video a month this year. let me know in the comments what you think. cheers"

CGS Serge Modular Synth Chaos Sounds #TTNM

Published on Feb 7, 2018 The Tuesday Night Machines

"Tried to patch something chaotic with the three "Best of CGS" Serge panels :)




Audio gear used:
Best of CGS Serge BOG, MARSH & SWAMP
... some reverb from the Zoom R16

Patch Notes:
I'm modulating both Extended ADSRs heavily using the Gated Comparator and DUSG. The Sequencer Programmer plays the two NCOs, which cross-modulate each other. There's some sub-octave generation going on too with the VC Divider and of course filtering with lots of modulation too."

"Rumburack 2.0 is compact yet powerful modular system with analog punch and digital charm. Its advanced sequencing capabilities make it self contained performance instrument that is ready to go on tour with you! All the things that are great about analog are simply analog (VCF,VCA,VCO,mixer,kick) and all the things that are awesome in digital are digital (sequencing, complex modulation,sampling). The system is able to create several voices including drums and than create complex melodic and rhitmical motives. The system is so complex that you never run out of new stuff to explore in its sonic territories!

New Yamaha FS1R iPad Editor For Patch Base

Yamaha FS1R Voice Editing with Patch Base

Published on Feb 7, 2018 Coffeeshopped

via Coffeeshopped, makers of Patch Base:

"Patch Base 2.10 adds an editor for the most complex FM synthesizer I've ever encountered: the Yamaha FS1R. This thing is a beast. First of all, it has 8 operators for FM synthesis! Imagine the possible chaos. And, each operator has both a "Voiced" and "Unvoiced" part. The Voiced part is your tone generator (similar to the DX7), and the Unvoiced part is essentially a noise generator with its own envelopes, frequency controls, and bandpass filter. The Voiced part also supports multiple waveforms (the FS1R calls them "spectral" forms), including a formant generator. Basically, you can make this thing sound like it's talking. It is hands-down the most amazing FM synth I've ever used, and I've only begun to scratch the surface of sound design with it.

And starting today, FS1R owners can go deeper with this synth, too. Like the FS1R itself, this editor was the most complex FM editor I've created so far. The current algorithm (out of 88 possibilities!) is shown in the top left, and also serves as the selector for which operator you want to edit. Each operator shows the output levels of the voiced and unvoiced parts of the operator, which helps give an overview of the structure of the patch. With 8 operators, a lot of patches won't even use all of them!.."

Athens track: Roland JX-03 for the pad

We know our demographic and we know you like to party, so here's a new track from last weekend. We recorded it live in a single take in London and a single take in Athens. Then, to pair it with something to look at, on Monday, January 22nd 2018, at 19:10 GMT, 21:10 EET, we synched up and took a walk around our neighborhoods at the same time while listening to it on our headphones and taking a video of what was going on around us as we did that. Why? Art, man. wtf."

Super Rare Buchla Thunder Ribbon Midi Controller SN 1072

via this auction

"In a nutshell, it is a configurable controller. You tell each key what to do. It is hugely flexible. Each key can send on any mixture of MIDI channels. Each can send note on/off data and a huge range of user configurable controller data. Keys can be conditional in reaction to each other in a manner summarized as "don't do this unless that has happened first on Key 13" or similar.
A user can record 99 events shared across 8 slots that can be edited ex-post facto and fired off and stopped at will. It is called "Riff Recording" and I quite like it.
One way in which the Thunder differs from the 200e-series controllers is that many of the keys can be split into multiple independent keys. Each of the long 'fader' style keys can be split in half. The hexagonal "joystick" or "X/Y" keys can be partitioned into 3 keys.
Every key is pressure sensitive. That pressure can be assigned to many kinds of controller output messages. Each key can be different.
Each key is also "Impact" aware and can sense and transmit the initial striking forces independently."

Vintage Synth Lab : D-ENV Eurorack delayed gate & trigger envelope generator

Published on Feb 7, 2018 Vintage SynthLab

"The D-ENV is a 10hp Eurorack analog (exponential) envelope generator (AR, ADSR) with an additional Delay and Hold circuit to generate delayed gates or triggers, and hold time up to 1 second. The D-ENV's delay circuit is completely independent of the ADSR, however the delayed gate (or trigger) can be routed internally using the D-G or D-T switches. The Delayed Gate and Trigger output jacks are always available, regardless of internal routing. CV to control DELAY time (DELAY controls sets maximum delay time). The Delay circuit is essentially a one-bit shift register which only allows gates or triggers at the DG-IN jack to be acknowledged once the complete DELAY, then HOLD (sequence time minimum is 24 ms, or 12 ms for each stage) process is complete. During the DELAY or HOLD processing, the DG-IN jack ignores all incoming delay gate signals. Inverted output of the EG is also available. Short and Long modes are accessible from the front panel, however the extended long range can be set on the rear of the module for extra long envelopes."
