Elektron Analog Four MKII With A Tiny Modular Synth

Published on Feb 22, 2018 Perfect Circuit Audio

"This video shows how an Elektron Analog Four MKII can be used with a eurorack modular synthesizer. The Analog Four can output 4 CV signals for triggering and controlling sounds from the modular and the modular can be plugged into the Analog Four to be mixed with the other voices and be run through the effects. The Analog Four is triggering a Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter, WMD Chimera and Make Noise synth made with STO, Function and LxD.

0-Coast Ambient: flickering lens distorts

Published on Feb 22, 2018 C Nich0lls

"shards of light, shadows of sadness

Analogue improvisation with Makenoise 0-Coast, Korg SQ-1, Strymon BigSky, Red Panda bitmap

Theme is a single take recording, no editing. 2 background elements were added post recording: high-pitched ‘chirps’ and a low ‘heartbeat’. Both elements derived from the original patch. The ‘heartbeat’ is self-patched.

SQ-1 has a series of pitches programmed across all 16 steps. Most pitches span more than one step and this interacts with the cycling Slope generator and Contour with variable decay on the 0-Coast to create the variety of note durations.

Makenoise 0-Coast
Image of patch at start of video

Patch is derived from 0-Coast:Timbre Space 01. Analogue distortion pedal changed for Red Panda bitmap, digital distortion

Square Wave to Balance In
Random out to Volt Math in
Volt math mult out to Slope Time in Contour Decay in
Slope set to Cycle
Contour out to Balance control in

Volt-math pot adjusted throughout the performance

Red Panda bitmap
Multiple parameters adjusted through performance

Custom patch based on Choral algorithm"

"The first part in a series about how a module is made. From idea to a completed module. The first part will be how I prototype hardware. part two will be software development, and part 3 will be finished module fabrication and production."

2. Making a Eurorack Module Part Two: Demo, and Software
"The second part in a series about how a module is made. From idea to a completed module. This part is a demo of what I want the module to do and a explanation of the software driving it. Part 3 will be finished module fabrication and production."

3. Making a Eurorack Module Part Three: Manufacture and Assembly
The final part of the making a module series. This video covers a brief overview of the steps to turn the prototype built in the previous videos into a finished unit.

303 only by EDMX

"Nothing groundbreaking, just a simple acid track….. but all the sounds were made using just a TB-303 as a sound source, by sampling into an MPC and truncating, filtering and layering. Even the hihats and metal sounds :)"

Vintage Fender Chroma Polaris Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"This synth was manufactured in early-to-mid 1980s by Fender in Japan. This was the last synth designed by Arp engineers.

It is very clean, undamaged, Polaris which has been in the studio. You're not likely to find a cleaner looking and performing Polaris on the market anywhere as these are increasingly rare.

I replaced membrane panels 1 week ago, so this is good to go for another 30+ years!"

Volca FM + Ditto X4 = loop fun!

Published on Feb 22, 2018 Slenterende Beer

"I decided to switch from the Ditto Stereo looper to the Ditto X4! I had the idea of doing an all-FM song, so this is what I did:

I programmed 4 short sequences on the Volca, heard in the following order at the start of the video: kick, hi-hat, snare and simple repeating melody. I then recorded a 1-bar loop of silence on the Ditto, to match the length of the FM sequences. After the length was set, I started recording loop 1 and played the 4 sequences, each time layering the loop (aka overdubbing).

I also recorded a 4-bar loop of silence (again, just to set the length), that I then started using for the bass line and chords. After those were recorded on loop 2, it was time for a little solo and playing with the looper effects.

The reason this is possible at all, is because the Ditto and the Volca are synced through MIDI, which was not possible with the Ditto Stereo. The Retrokits RK-004 sends the MIDI clock out to both devices.

Almost all Volca FM patches are from the "Percussive" and "FM Does Analogue" patch packs by the great Oscillator Sink.
Patch packs:

Korg Volca FM
TC Electronic Ditto X4
Arturia Keystep
Miditech MIDI Thru/Filter
Retrokits RK-004
Behringer XENYX QX1002USB

Recorded with iPhone 7."

"Download the audio track for FREE here [embed below]
For this video track, i have the Moog DFAM Synced to the Moog Mother-32. The DFAM is run thru the Moog MF Delay pedal, while the Mother-32 is being processed with the Moog MuRF with the tempo being synced by the Mother-32 and the envelope controlled by the Mother-32's LFO. Lots of other fun patching is going on too!"

Note the video above is not for the one in the listing. The one currently for sale is not working:

"Farfisa Gulliver Partner 8 vintage organ. It does go on but there is no sound coming out of it. Maybe its just a simple construction for it to be fully working again, or for parts. Part of the body has been glued ones as you can see on the second picture. Original stand is included."

Roland Promars MRS-2 Analog Monophonic Synthesizer SN 600147

via this auction

Recently serviced, "All original sliders, knobs, buttons, switches, etc. are present and accounted for. There is no writing or stickers anywhere- as far as cosmetic condition goes, there are some knicks on the wooden sides (visible in pics), a little bit of tape residue next to the word "Promars" on the face plate, and a little bit of rust/buildup on some of the screws (which could easily be replaced). Also, the Attack slider in the VCF section is slightly bent, but does not affect function. Synth stays in tune and tracks well."

Good price on this one considering.

"It is missing the slider caps and knobs. Other than that it is complete. yes it does work. I didn’t try the cv gate but everything else seemed to work as it should."
