Accelerator 303 Ambient Acid track with Spectralis and Virus

Published on Feb 18, 2018 MIDERA

"While messing around making FM patches on my Radikal Technologies Accelerator - I made this patch that sounded a lot like a TB-303, so I decided to make a track with it. I'm sure it's not perfect - but... eh.

Accelerator: TB-303 sound
Spectralis Keys, Drums, sequencing
Virus: Strings"

BURG - when kings were mountains (modular, morphagene, avalon bassline)

Published on Feb 18, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

I wanted to take my modular system out for a spin with the Avalon bassline in a minimal polyrhythmic jam, this is what happened. :)

The Avalon Bassline, of course does the square bass, on this I also have the CSIDMAN from catalinbread for some glitchy madness + a simple short plate reverb from the strymon bluesky.

The modular has two signal paths, one with percussion passing through the Keeley Caverns, treated with some delay and reverb. The main sound sources is the Peaks, doing kick and snare..snare being fed through the uVCF for for modulated HPF with a slight bit of resonance. Sequenced by beatstep pro.

BIA takes care of some hihat/percussive sounds on the top, modulated by PAM / LFO's / Gates, and sequenced by beatstep pro.

The second signal path passes trought he RE-20 (tape delay + EQD tranmisser modulater reverb which i pull in from time to time)

The morphagene has a piano sample that i recorded in my computer using NI una corda vst, smashed and trashed to pieces in the MG. For starters it goes in reverse, with several slice points which are being scrubbed start/end point with modulation + that the organize is also being modulated. (LFO from expert sleepers + Tides)

MI braids does the "normal" sequence 3xSAW, passing through the Ripples which act both VCA and filter, envelope from the maths controls both the filter and VCA at the same time.. sort of LPG but not really.

Rings does what the rings does does, modulated slightly by the PAM to give it some irregular movements.

Current modular rack:

Gear used: Abstrakt Instruments Avalon BassLine
FX used: Strymon bluesky, EQD tranmisser, RE-20, keeley caverns, catalinbread CSIDMAN

Hope you will enjoy it!

Miura Ori // semi-generative ambient

Published on Feb 18, 2018 rustyjaw

"Another Argos Bleak-centered track. Making heavy use of the vibrato to slowly swing all the oscillators around the notes detuning each several cents above and below the note.

Why "semi-generative"? Well there are two programmed sequences being played into the A and B inputs on the Argos, but the note/chord changes are triggered by random gates from the Stillson Hammer into the Argos Bleak's quantizer-trigger in. The chords themselves are presets I created in the Argos, but they are 'chosen' by Rene's unquantized out as it very slowly steps through a sequence.

What is decidedly not generative is the way I control the mix levels and filter cutoffs. But for the most part the track kind of runs itself which was a good exercise for me in giving up a little control :-)

And finally, I was able to sneak Magneto in for the crystalline chiming sounds that come in about halfway through. Magneto is in Loop mode."

Merino - Digitakt Ambient recorded to cassette

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Jogging House

"Check out my new album 'From':

Yet another ambient exploration of the Elektron Digitakt, recorded straight to cassette.

Simple drone samples from the Mangrove eurorack oscillator and a Korg Wavestation. Shaped, sequenced and resampled within the Digitakt,

The video goes in and out of sync due to tape warble, nothing I can do about that. Hope you still enjoy it.

Critter & Guitari - EnvelopeFX for Organelle

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Critter & Guitari

"EnvelopeFX is a multi-effect patch for the Organelle. It uses the volume envelope of incoming audio to control effects! Add reverb, delay, distortion, tremolo, chorus, flanger or a filter to your sound. Automate the effect settings and store each looped automation in the Organelle’s keyboard keys. Sequence the automations with the Aux button or an external footswitch. We recommend connecting a Pocket Piano, Bolsa Bass, Moog Mother-32, Boss DR-770, electric guitar, or vocals (live or Kaleidoloop-recorded). Use EnvelopeFX as an audio effect and MIDI sequencer for some righteous control."

One step at a time...

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Jörg Schaaf

Jörg Schaaf of Radikal Technologies.

"In this little sequencer example I am using the pitch quantizer of the Delta CEP A and the Swarm oscillator to modify multiple sequences just by changing the scaling of the sequencer control voltages. As I selected the same pentatonic scale for both quantizers, the resulting sequences always match and create endless variations.

I am playing a little bit on the Spectralis hybrid synth from time to time. But it I apologize that this live playing sometimes sound like I am drunken or falling asleep. I can promise that that was not the case. I just forgot to activate the realtime quantize function of my right thumb and pinky ;-)

The sequences are running over the Delta CEP A delay and the Spectralis over a Strymon Timeline.
I am using both RT-311 outputs. One is fed into the external input of the Delta CEP A and the other output is fed through the RT-451 filter into a separate VCA with an independent envelope. The output of the VCA is then fed into the direct FX input of the Delta Cep A."

Rare gear, the vintage Univox EP 210 Electric Piano Epiano soundcheck demo

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Expanding Sound

"The Univox EP-210 is a pretty rare E-piano. There isn't much information out there about its sound, so I thought I'd do a quick little demonstration on mine. It's pretty much a no-frills electric piano, not much to the settings, but I still think it has a very interesting quality all to itself. Forgive the piano playing! This was done quite quickly just for a quick sound demonstration. Hope you enjoy!"

"Yamaha VL7 Physical Modeling Synthesizer. This is THE programmers synth.. perfect for creating some of the most unusual, dynamic, deepest textures. Great for soundtrack work or just to add something unheard of on any style of music. The presets are pretty basic but once you start editing and tweaking is clear how amazing and deep this synth is. It is in FULL working condition, no operational issues… looks good too but does have minor scuffs as shown."

009//A Bath of Light - A melodic ambient Eurorack track

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"A calming, repetitive, semi-self-generating modular patch using a small Eurorack setup sent through an Eventide Space hall reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on banddelay setting. No other processing has been applied.

This track is dedicated to Lightbath for his beautiful modular works. It's only semi-random, as I created 2 sequences which repeat with slight random variations (they sometimes reset, and sometimes repeat notes). I cut the video short after recording ~30 minutes of it since the bass melody is too repetitive, but it was a good experiment into having bass melodies instead of random notes or drone notes. The lower Mother 32 supplies the bass melody, the higher supplies the high melody, and the AJH VCO supplies the 2-note unfiltered bass part."

ROLI Seaboard Block review and MPE investigation
