"After a long time, I’ve finally been able to find a weekly time to get back to record some videos for you! Sorry for the low audio quality on this one, I was just testing the new set up after I moved.

Here I’m using two original patches (one FM self oscillating keyboard sound and one FM and PWM lead) on the Rev2 plugged in a Vox AC15 amplifier.

I will be posting more videos soon, with actual line audio recordings :)"

VCS 3 - Oxygene 2 Sound + Sample Pack Preview

Published on Feb 17, 2018 100 Things I Do

"I get a lot of questions about the VCS 3 and about how Jean-Michel Jarre created the signature VCS3 sounds heard on Oxygene & Équinoxe, I thought today I would let you see how one of the sounds can be created with one of the main sounds from Oxygene 2.

Also I thought it time to give an update on the VCS3 Sample pack I have been promising for a while. It still might be a little while yet before I'm happy and ready to release it but I am looking to hear from you what types of sounds, one shots or soundscapes your looking for in the pack. Also do you want the sound 100 dry, compressed/limited , with effects ? or a mix of all above ?"

Makenoise 0-Coast: Timbre Space 01

Published on Feb 17, 2018 C Nich0lls

"Single take recording meant simply as sound exploration. I enjoy ambient music that can be played quietly to add an audio sheen to a space, but also that can be played loud, when it becomes an almost physical immersion. Let me know what kinds of ambient music you enjoy and whether you also enjoy recordings that can be played loud.

The 0-Coast was self-patched with the internal clock pulsing the Contour. The Slope generator was set to self-cycle.

The rhythmic pulsing was developed by using the random out to both the Contour Decay and Slope Time inputs, simultaneously.

The amount of random is adjusted though the recording, as is the Balance mix between the Triangle wave and the Overtone/Multiply circuit.

The 0-Coast was recorded though an Infanem Improbability Drive pedal and subsequently through the Strymon Timeline, running a custom dTape patch.

Recorded in Ableton Live with slight EQ and compression on final out. A second pass of reverb from Strymon BigSky, running a custom Bloom patch, was added after the recording."

Vermona PERfourMER mkII - Pads

Published on Feb 17, 2018 Simon Chauvin

"Each voice has different settings.. this is when the magic happens"


via this auction

"The Dirty Electronics Mute Synth II (MSII) is a hand-held synth and sequencer.

At the core of the instrument is a versatile mini patchbay that provides expansion and modification permutations and a grid-like visual representation of patched parameters using coloured jumpers.

The patchbay encourages a particular interaction with the instrument and playfulness.

The printed circuit board artwork, black and silver finish, has multiple touch electrodes in the form of small squares that provide a labyrinth of possible connections and resulting behaviours.

Different rhythmic sequences are created through hybrid 4-bit binary coding, feedback loops and bit bashing.

The graphical artwork for the printed circuit board was done in collaboration with Adrian Shaughnessy. The Mute Synth II is Dirty Electronics’ second hand-held synth with Mute Records, the first being created in 2011.

One of the main ideas behind the Mute Synth II was to consider the dissemination of a musical idea other than through recorded fixed media, and to explore the intersection between sound object and artwork etching.

The synth also presents the notion of writing music through electronics and code.

The Mute Synth II is a statement against MPEG culture and places an onus on active participant rather than passive consumer. The synth has been born out of Dirty Electronics’ ongoing commitment to DIY approaches and noise aesthetics, and serves as a catalyst for experimenting with electronic sound. Additional modules and hacks allow for the instrument to be customised.

Features: Noise generator Feedback Oscillator Waveshaping (triangle - square) Buffered output Sequencer External clock option Touch and knob/potentiometer controls Mini patchbay Dotmatrix display (external module) PCB artwork Bend and hack points Expansion board capability Mini jack/headphone output Battery powered 9v (battery not included)"

seismic industries introduces spink0 DIY Eurorack Module for Ableton LINK

via seismic industries

"DIY eurorack CLK / RST generator for Ableton LINK

After Ableton released the source code /SDK for, applications and devices that use it quickly started to appear.
The pink SPINK0 is a patchwork from shaduzlabs pink-0, a CLK / RESET generator based on the Rasperry Pi Zero W. His source code is the core of this project. After a lot of tweakin, tuning & changing, a working LINK connection could be established. I then squeezed the PiZero into its new dress, consisting of a set of three PCBs that all sandwich together to form a eurorack module.

Vive la mitraillette :)

Since the setup procedure of all the tools needed, to and for the build, is not a too trivial task. And on top of that you’d also need to make some changes/tweaks to the original source files to get everything running, since some pins and HW elements have changed. So I decided to distribute the adapted source directly embedded in the working OS-image for the raspberry, all set up.

I also added some bash scripts to easily switch between different network environments.


This thingy is a v0.1.0 patchwork. so please don’t except stability over centuries. There may be a slip here or there. but it is definitively a handy and very usable toy to jam freely together with your friends!

But hey – code is opensource. maybe someone comes along and implements the MIDI out or gets encouraged to compile a preemt_rt enabled kernel for the system… or other features get added/implemented.

Best operated in closed networks, updates, backups & Co. of other devices disabled!!!

Special thanks to shaduzlabs for this awewsome code!!"

Modular Drone : Lost in Time Like Tears in Rain

Published on Feb 17, 2018 Mike Thomas

"Another in my 'Blade Runner Suite': a series of more-or-less atonal pieces made with my 'Seriously Sputnik' modular synth.

This piece is a mix of generative and sequenced tones and time. Sequencer timing itself is somewhat random. It is controlled by the pulse output of a channel of the Quad Function and Trigger Source. But that channel's attack and decay are randomly changed, which results in timing changing randomly (though subtly)."

Synthesis Technology e370 Chord Mode

Published on Feb 17, 2018 The Mad Music Machine

"A quick experiment with the Synthesis Technology e370 Chord Mode.

The only sound source is the e370 with one oscillator playing a simple bass line, and the remaining oscillators forming Major chords.

We are using our Moog Mother-32 (as a clock only), two Erica Synth Pico Sequencers, the Roland System-1m (as a filter only). Since our last video we have also added an Intellijel Quadra and a Quad VCA to partner the e370.

We next plan to step through the chord table to form progressions using different chord types (rather than just sticking to the Major Chords as we have done here)."

Last night I filled my Digitakt full of 808 samples and started messing about - one thing led to another and I made this.

It's full of techno constructions but it doesn't sound like exactly like techno to me - hence the title.

The Digitakt is driving everything except the lead - which is the (wonderful) Repro-1 driven by the LPK25 and I've got the filter of the repro mapped to knobs on the launch control which I play throughout ."

Happy Nerding FM Aid (LMS Eurorack Expansion Project)

Published on Feb 16, 2018 Learning Modular

"This little-known module seems to promise the impossible: Take the output of any two oscillators (or even just one oscillator – sawtooth wave preferred), patch them through this, and get voltage-controllable through-zero linear FM effects from the output – with four different waveforms. But that’s what it does, simulating a form of FM known as phase modulation. It’s a bit on the buzzy side, but it does indeed produce a wide range of easily-controllable sounds.

The video breaks down like this:
00:00 extended demo
03:14 overview
03:54 calibration
04:15 waveforms
05:15 self-modulation
05:51 adding a separate modulation oscillator
07:12 enveloping the modulation depth
08:18 FM’ing the modulation depth
08:47 exploring different frequency ratios
09:42 feedback patching"
