The Moog DFAM with Bana Haffar at the House of Electronicus

Published on Feb 8, 2018 Synthtopia

"Ahead of the 2018 NAMM Show, Moog Music took over a house in Echo Park, CA and turned it into the 'House of Electronicus'.

They invited synthesist Bana Haffar, who co-founded the 'Modular on the Spot' series of electronic music picnic events, to come and perform at the House, with Moog's new DFAM.

The DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) is a Eurorack synth module that's tailored to percussive sounds. But, as Haffar demonstrates in the video, it's useful for a lot of other types of sounds, too."

Modular on the Spot, with Bana Haffar

Published on Feb 8, 2018 Synthtopia

"At the Moog 'House of Electronicus', we talked with synthesist Bana Haffar about 'Modular on the Spot', a series of free outdoor electronic music events.

Haffar and her partner Eric Cheslak (Rodent), started Modular on the Spot in Los Angeles. But the idea for the series has taken on a life of its own and there have been similar events around the world."

"The Analog Rytm MKII is a fusion of distinctive analog percussion and samples.
Bring in the power of sequencing and performance controls.
The Analog Rytm MKII is a one stop solution beat machine.
This lates incarnation of the Analog Rytm is simply breathtaking, from the aluminium enclosure, to the large pads, to the new quick performance controls, this is a great leap forward in the quest for rhythmical excellence.
And now you can sample with it too.
This video is just a small taste of what the Analog Rytm can do."

AJH Synth Mega Phase 12 Review

Published on Feb 8, 2018 SonicVoltage

"AJH Synth Mega-Phase 12 Full Review and Coverage of its Features. Eurorack Modular Analogue Multi-Tap Phaser Module for Eurorack Modular synth

(HEADPHONES recommended) I spent some time with the Mega Phase 12 to test its features, create a few sounds, process synth patches and some beats.

This is a unique eurorack module, the latest AJH Synth eurorack module which takes the analogue multi stage phaser to a new level with 12 Stages you can tap from and separate access to Resonance, see video to learn more about it.

Intellijel Morgasmatron: Unfiltered Possibilities (Filter Demo With No Talking)

08:44 - Tone Shaping In Series
09:18 - Ring Modulation
09:45 - Drones

"This is the third generation of Intellijel’s much loved Korgasmatron filter designed in collaboration with David G. Dixon.

The Morgasmatron features two completely independent six-mode filters (labeled “A” and “B”) — each with its own mode-select knob, input, output, cutoff, resonance, Q-drive and gain control. Each filter has a pair of CV inputs (one with a built-in attenuator and the other with a built-in attenuverter) for modulating cutoff, and another CV input for modulating resonance. Both filters self-oscillate at maximum Q, and produce pitched sine waves that track the two separate 1V/OCT inputs.

You can use the two filters independently of one another, or you can use them together (in either a series or parallel connection) and smoothly crossfade between them using either the XFADE knob or the XFADE CV input and built-in attenuverter. You can flip the DRY switches to instantly bypass either or both filters; invert the phase of Filter B; or overdrive Filter A by switching on the new Overdrive circuit. A MIX output provides (as you might suspect) a mixed output of the two filters.

VERMONA Releases randomRHYTHM Randomized Trigger Sequencer / Clock Divider Eurorack module

"VERMONA releases remarkable randomRHYTHM randomized trigger sequencer / clock divider Eurorack module

VOGTLAND, GERMANY: electronic sound tools creator VERMONA is proud to announce availability of the randomRHYTHM randomized trigger sequencer / clock divider — duly representing the company’s latest Eurorack entry to the small-format modular system world as a remarkable random-based dual-channel trigger sequencer with four sliders per rhythm section with which to set the probability of quarters, eighths, sixteenths and triplets making an appearance to form sequences — as of February 8…

Unlike traditional step sequencers, VERMONA’s just-released randomRHYTHM randomized trigger sequencer / clock divider does not allow its users to set steps manually — or tap in a rhythm, for that matter, but rather work with four fanciful LED-lit sliders labelled 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, and 1/3 to set the probability of quarters, eighths, sixteenths and triplets making an appearance to form sequences in its two rhythm sections. Each rhythm section works in realtime or DICE mode, meaning that the module is either continuously generating new random values for each note value in realtime, whereas in DICE mode it generates them for a complete 3/4 or 4/4 bar. But in both modes the sliders still influence the resulting sequence — even if a bar has been ‘diced’, so-to-speak.

Midnight Drive 2 | Roland JX-8P Juno 6 Emax Akai S1000 Korg DW8000

Published on Feb 8, 2018 Espen Kraft

"A sequel/follow-up to my popular track Midnight Drive.

I wanted to make the sequel a little faster and add a little more "oompf" to the bottom end. Without being TOO modern of course... can't have that! :P

The bass is the Juno 6 (sampled into the Roland S-10 sampler for sequencer playback) and all pads/strings is off the 8P

Piano is the Emax and the drums are the Akai S1000. Arpeggio ++ KOrg DW-8000. Some additional drums from Yamaha RX11 and Roland TR-626.
Novation MiniNova plays some hits as well.

There's even some Nord Lead A1 in there although you don't see it in the video.
The Nord Lead A1 provides all wind/noise effects.

Reverbs are Strymons Bluesky. Delay is TC Flashback.

The patches for the JX-8P/PG-8X can be downloaded here:

The track is conceived on the Roland MC50 sequencer, my old school MIDI setup, but ultimately multitracked in my DAW for better control at the mixing stage.

My tracks pay homage to all synth-pop acts of the 80'ies like Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, Ultravox, OMD, Euryhmics, Duran Duran, Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, Alphaville, A-ha and many more.

A use mostly old gear in my music and among them Roland Juno 6, Alpha Juno 2, D550 and JX-8P.
Korg DW-8000, Elka EK22, Yamaha DX7 and TX802 and drum machines Yamaha RX11 and Roland TR-626.

Effects are usually handled by Strymon and TC electronics.

Sampling is done on my E-MU ESI-4000, Akai S1000, Roland S-10, Emax 1, 2, Yamaha A3000."

* 3 waveforms: thyratron sawtooth, square, and square with suboctave
* VCO2 may free-run or be soft-synced to VCO 1
* Numerous patch points allow enormous flexibility

* Unique circuit with soft clipper and pulse adder (shapes waveforms from VCOs by adding small pulses to top of waveform at discontinuity)
* Made entirely of vacuum tubes
* Settings: disable, soft-clip only, and soft-clip with pulses added to signal. Latter circuit allows simulation of noise source.

* Unique multimode circuit allows it to be used as a lowpass, treble/midrange bandpass or bass bandpass filter.
* Continuously variable control allows mixing of filter forms in any proportion.
* Made entirely of vacuum tubes.
* Range of treble resonance switchable, 400-1700 Hz. Bass resonance tunes from ~100-350 Hz

* Unique circuit using a pentode tube
* Made entirely of a vacuum tube
* May be modulated with the AR generator only, or with the control voltage generated on modulation bus 2

* 2 envelope generators, A(S)R and AD, both triggered with input gate signal. Both may be combined on either modulation bus to create ADSR.
* 2 independent LFOs, triangle waveform, range <0.3 Hz to more than 5 Hz. * 2 modulation buses allow combining the A(S)R, AD, and two LFOs as needed to affect any CV input in the audio circuit (VCO pitch, VCO squarer waveshape, waveshaper pulser, filter tuning).

U He Repro 100 Presets

Published on Feb 8, 2018 chronosproject

"Anton Anru - A Hundred (bank of patches for U-He Repro 5)

Here is a bank of presets for a relatively new virtual synthesizer U-He - Repro-5.
It is an emulation of a legendary analog synthesizer - Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. And this emulation sounds fantastic! It’s absolutely powerful, phat, lively - just like the original synth.
The quality and the functionality of the brand new plugin immediately inspired me to start creating and saving presets, one by one. After a couple dozens of them I decided to make a complete soundset in order to share it with electronic music producers, sound designers and synth-lovers.

The bank consists of:
- 18 Leads - 0:23
- 13 Keys - 5:52
- 16 Synths - 9:15
- 15 Pads - 13:35
- 11 Plucks - 19:06
- 16 Basses - 21:22
- 11 FXs - 25:12
A hundred in total.

There are harsh, metallic, powerful sounds, as well as mild, intimate and soft ones. Some timbres are quite well-known, classic and must-have, others are experimental, unique and never heard before (supposedly). All the sounds are universal and suitable for every modern genre. It depends on your imagination.

It is strongly recommended to try every preset in different note ranges, e.g. a bass may turn into an interesting lead at higher notes; or keys may sound like bells if are played couple octaves higher.

So you get even more than 100 sounds as a patch may play different roles just because of an octave. Not to mention the Mod Wheel, that may change a sound drastically.

The built-in effects are applied in most patches, so the sounds are ready to go and may be used as they are without additional tweaking.

Each patch has a short description with my vision of how to use a patch, e.g. nice at low notes, use it for sequences or arpeggios.

Also there is some technical information, e.g. Mod Wheel influences on the brightness of the sound.

Sections «Categories», «Features» and «Character» are thoroughly filled, so you can easily find a needed sound with the help of tags.

14 presets out of 100 are available for free at AudioBombs:"
