Canon 50D Magic Lantern - Winter Synth Composition

Published on Mar 1, 2018 Synth & Sundry

"A excerpt from a composition demonstrating sounds from the reFX Nexus 2 VST and the the TAL-U-NO LX VST (Juno 60 emulator). Using Ableton Live and the Alesis Q61 keyboard.

The video was shot on a Canon 50D with Magic Lantern Raw, filming in London during the wintry day of 27th February 2018.

Mostly shot in 5x zoom crop mode, 14 bit raw at 1920x1080 resolution. Some shots use full sensor mode (1568x882 resolution).

I used a Canon 17-55mm f2.8 lens, which unfortunately has a broken aperture but is still usable."

Novation Circuit Mono Station Versus Bass Station II

Published on Mar 1, 2018 Nu-Trix The Synth Guy

"Novation is presenting the Circuit Mono Station as a Bass Station II with a Sequencer. My first impression was that is had a less powerful synthesis engine. But When I actually tried it I was more than amaze. I'm now thinking of selling my Bass Station II to replace it with the Circuit Mono Station. I'll show you why."

Roland TR-808 Vintage Analog Drum Machine with MIDI

Published on Mar 1, 2018 synthignition

"Roland TR-808 currently on eBay:"

via this auction

"Listing is for a Roland TR-808 Drum Machine with CHD MIDI retrofit! Works good, sounds wonderful, and is in good cosmetic condition.

When syncing the internal sequencer to MIDI clock, timing is not as tight so the purchaser should plan on using it as a velocity-sensitive MIDI triggered sound source or DIN-synched unit. Samples, VST instruments, clones, etc. cannot touch the sound of the real thing."

The Ever Deepening Well of Sorrow & Loss // Monome Arc + Buchla Music Easel

Published on Mar 1, 2018 Genshi Media Group

"This started out as a test of the Monome Arc/Ansible module sequencing the two Oscillators of the Buchla Music Easel (via my custom made Eurorack to Buchla convertor module from Synovatron) while also sequencing Mutable Instruments Rings and Intellijel Plonk... it then turned into a pretty, but sad little tune.

Published on Mar 1, 2018 CatSynth TV

"Today is the Jewish festival of Purim, and to mark the occasion we present a demo featuring a traditional grager run through our modular synthesizer.

All sounds originate from the grager, either live or recorded. The following modules are used for processing:

Make Noise Echophon
Qu-Bit Nebulae (v1)
Rossum Electro-Music Morpheus
Make Noise Maths
Make Noise Tempi
Malekko Heavy Industry Noisering

Purim is a holiday that commemorates the saving of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from the king’s wicked advisor Haman, as told in the book of Esther. Traditionally, the name of Haman is masked by noisemakers known as gragers,

Moog DFAM on Acid

Published on Mar 1, 2018 HardtekStudios

"It's time to prove that the Moog DFAM is not just a drum synth! We will start simple & show off some great acid bass lines! Does it sound just like a 303? No way! But it can do an acid style bass all on it's own! Recorded strait into Garageband with no external processing. You can see a bit of the Mother-32 in the screen, but she had taken the day off."

Touché & Novation Peak : Ecstatic

Published on Mar 1, 2018 Expressive E

"In this series of videos, we explore some of the presets for the Novation Peak that comes with every Touché.

Touché ships with Lié, its companion software. Lié is a host of plug-ins and comes with tailor-made sounds and configurations for a selection of synthesisers, as well as tools to make your own software and hardware presets.

Those hardware presets for Touché are templates that make your experience truly plug-and play with hardware synthesisers from Moog, Dave Smith, Korg, Roland, Nord, Yamaha, Novation, Elektron, Arturia, Waldorf...

For a selection of synths, the hardware presets for Touché are one step further, matching some of their factory presets.

All hardware presets can be saved in Touché's internal memory, in order to use Touché in standalone, without any computer."

Lights - Ambient - Eurorack / Digitakt / Pedals - recorded to cassette

Published on Mar 1, 2018 Jogging House

"Check out my new album 'From':

First time using the Digitakt to sequence the mini modular system. The samples on the Digitakt were previously made with that system. All together recorded straight to cassette. I added a bit of reverb in Ableton as I don't have a hardware reverb at the moment.

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

Great view of the city. Curious what the smoke on top of the modular is.

Tape Techniques 3: Sampling on the Teenage Engineering OP1

"In this episode we meet Justin Owen of Abstract Data, who I would describe as a perfect example of the modern Eurorack 'pioneer' - a one-person company with no formal training, completely self-taught - yet able to make, sell and support fantastic gear, and (just about!) make a living doing it. How does someone actually DO that??

Well, in this episode, we sit down to talk all this and more. We talk about the impact of Punk, and early Orbital in his music formation, growing up in a suburb of Sydney, on the design process and bugbears on trends in Eurorack product design, on putting the character and vibe back into VCAs, and surviving as a manufacturer in a crowded market.

And we end talking about his music making process - how he uses a modular as part of music making...WITHOUT getting distracted. And how do you do that? Best sit in and get listening..."

"A sequencer-based jam on all Sputnik Modular modules."


Video Patch Notes :: 5-15

Published on Mar 3, 2018

"A video describing some of the modules and techniques used to produce the performance video "5-15".

The modules used for this patch are almost all from Sputnik Modular, which unfortunately is no longer producing Eurorack modular gear :-(

I wish I'd been a bit more organized in the presentation, but it was off-the-cuff and I was tired. In future videos I'll try to cover the signal routing a bit better."

25 02 18 BugBrand Modular System

Published on Mar 1, 2018 batchas

"Damned... A hidden camera was recording while I was clowning around in the studio :)

Same patch as this: [posted here] but sequence clock is slower.
Drum from DRM1 + Xpander, but also from Korg Electribe (BD, SD, HH).

In the last week of february I'm recording while sending a few voices out of the BugBrand to different tracks in Logic. So it's still recorded in one take, but on multitrack instead of direct to a stereo track like I'm used to do to not loose too much time with editing or whatever. I do it now so I can apply an effect or fade in/out separately if I want to. That's why sometimes you see me doing something , it's there, but you don't hear it."

Doom E1M1 on Digitone

Published on Mar 1, 2018

"Just got a Digitone! Another awesome synth/sequencer from Elektron.

I decided to set a challenge for myself, to find my way around the machine, and FM synthesis in general.. The challenge was to create a close approximation of the OPL3 sounds in Doom, mostly for that great "chuck" snare that I've loved since I was a kid.

One thing led to another, and I found myself programming the note data in as well.. so here it is, plus a long jam of me playing with various sound settings.

I really love this synth so far, it has a sound so much more lush than any other FM synth I've used."
