54HP Episode 2: West Coast Music Weasel

Published on Mar 16, 2018 Perfect Circuit Audio

"In episode 2 of 54HP we bring you the 'West Coast Music Weasel' which is inspired by west coast style synthesis and the Buchla Music Easel. This case features a complex LFO and S&H, four step sequencer and looping envelope for controlling the other modules, a voltage processor/ring modulator module and a 158 dual oscillator as well as a wave-folder and low pass gate. With this set of modules you can create anything from drones to sequences to generative patches that play themselves."

MPC60 Collection

Published on Mar 14, 2018 GoldbabySamples

"I love the MPC60! Still get some of my most punchy drums from this beast! 12 bits of classic Akai sampling legend. Thousands of samples have passed through my beige wonder sampler, so it isn't surprising I had to revisit this drum machine again. I have collected all the samples from the MPC60 Vol 1 to 3 then re-tuned and remastered a lot of them. Plus I added a whole heap of fresh new samples, more warm and punchy drums, super tasty synths, useful FX and inspiring hits and chords.

2922 x 24 bit samples recorded from the MPC60 through high end studio gear. With kits for Maschine, Battery, Kontakt, Ableton Live, EXS24 and Geist. Also available as 16 bit wav for some hardware samples."

Roland TR-606 | Component Exponent

Published on Mar 16, 2018 Alex Ball

"Found an old TR-606 in the back of a music shop. so here's a quick jam.

It's like a mini version of the 808 with very reduced features. It's entirely analogue and the sounds are great, but the kick drum is no match for its older brother. But for a 10th of the price of an 808, I can't really complain!

The other sounds are as seen - Juno-6 being triggered by the 606 and playing filtered noise and arpeggios, a 707 for some layering, the animal that is the Korg MS20 and a Baritone guitar with some vox wah and Tubescreamer distortion.

There's also some other bits and bobs going on, but I decided to keep it quite raw and minimal."

This Delay LITERALLY Crushes – Review of the BEFACO CRUSH DELAY V2

Published on Mar 16, 2018 BoBeats

"In this episode of Eurorack with Bo I explore the Crush Delay V2 from Befaco. I loved this delay in VCV Rack software form and it is even more exciting in physical form. Check it out here:"

Expressive E Touche in the beginning.

"This is the second iteration of our Crush Delay. It is an echo-delay unit based on the PT2399 IC, which although able to offer 400 ms of clean delay, has a special talent for generating digital garbage and noise! Our beautiful freak features multiple circuit bends to the chip, an FX send & return, and up to 2 seconds of filthy digital delay.

This model has been improved greatly from the first version with extensive signal routing changes to improve performance and extend its range of sonic possibilities.

The new Crush Delay features two VCAs to control the amount of signal sent to the delay. The first is routed to both the dry/wet mix and the delay, and the second directly to the delay. Combining the second VCA and the FX Send output allows for external feedback routings (see block diagram below).

The biggest improvement from the previous version of the module is to the control of PT2399 itself through the application of circuit bending techniques. It has an improved and extended speed control, offering a wider range and smoother control of the Crush section, converting this unit into a VC digital garbage generator!

It also includes three gate controllable switches to enable the three circuit-bends on the chip providing a high level of control over the digital noise, glitches and general nasty mayhem!

The VC feedback features an automatic gain control to keep levels stable at any feedback level."

ROLI: Everything by Lido: Download the NOISE Soundpack

Published on Mar 16, 2018 ROLI

"Play the sounds of Lido’s stunning debut album, from distorted basses and soaring synths to sugar-sweet vocal stabs. Crafted by Lido himself, this pack has “Everything” you need to create gospel-infused electronic magic.

Read the full story:

Download NOISE:

Lido is a 25-year-old Norwegian singer-producer based in Los Angeles. He made his name as a producer for artists like Chance the Rapper, Halsey, and Ariana Grande — weaving his voice into chart topping tracks. Everything excited the music world because it marked the emergence of an artist whose intriguing signatures were unmistakable in others’ work. Still, no one was quite expecting this emotional appeal from the core of a mind on fire.

Lido’s voice is distilled in Everything by Lido, the new NOISE soundpack based on the album. “R&B-infused electronic” gets you some of the way toward understanding the album’s — and the soundpack’s — sound.

“I wanted to make emotional electronic music,” Lido says. “Everything is a concept album about going through a loss or a breakup. In my case it was a breakup where I felt like I had to get over everything. I worked a lot with the textures and the sound design of the album to give it a cinematic feeling that still feels intimate and personal.”

“There are some fun stories behind most of the sounds in the pack,” he says. “The vocal chops in the Murder Drum Kit come from a freestyle rap I did when I was 14. My favorite sound is the bike bells from Citi Bike Bass. We went to every toy store and bike store in LA, looking for bike bells that would be perfectly in key with this song, and we sampled them. Those are the bike bells that you hear. It was incredibly challenging and fun to experiment how to give all these sounds more dimensions with the Blocks.”

Everything by Lido is now available in the NOISE Soundpack Store for $6.99 (£5.99, €6.99)"

Korg 770 Electronic Synthesizer SN 760051

via this auction

Two things I never really noticed:

1. The KORG Synthesizer badge on the front panel is indented.

2. The serial number badge on the back actually states "Electronic Synthesizer"

Sometimes I think people just come up with creative descriptions in the titles of their listings, but often they are actually going with what's on the synth itself.

Electromagnetic Radiation + Elektron Machinedrum Techno Session

Published on Mar 16, 2018 Dual Shaman

"With the aid of an Electromagnetic Radiation listening device, we were able to tap into the (normally unheard) sounds of electronic devices, in this case a kindle with a broken screen, an optical mouse, the tascam recorder which doubles as a preamp in this case, an old phone, a tablet device and Machinedrum's own screen.

The Machinedrum processes the incoming signal on two input machines, one for the 'synth' part and one for the hihat part, while also providing its own kick and a ram recording device set to create a small amount of palatable feedback.

We've created an entire sample pack exploring these obscure electromagnetic sonic realms, called 'ShamanStems - Interference'.
