8bit style arpeggiator with A-151 & A-160

Published on Mar 28, 2018 Yunneck

"Clock divider (A-160) is acting like octave divider, creating 4 separated octaves of square wave. All 4 octaves are linked to Sequental Switch (A-151) controlled by sawtooth wave LFO (A-147-2) retriggered by gate, so every new note is new sequence."

Behringer Model D - Daft Punk Melodies (Redoptor Distortion)

Published on Mar 28, 2018 RemixSample

"Hey! Messing around with the D16 Redoptor distortion plugin applied to a single saw oscillator of the Behringer Model D. I think the overtones you get playing with the cutoff knob are pretty cool. I also add on flanger, dub delay and some shimmer during the demo.
The first melody is Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The second melody is from Daft Punk - Aerodynamic.

The preset I used is called Acid Whistle. Redoptor plugin:"

"Jen SX1000 Analog Mono Synth (circa 1978-1982) Made in Italy. All the notes work and it has all of it's coloured pots. There are some knocks and marks on it (see pictures for details) and the resonance pot is a little bit crunchy when moving the dial beyond 5 but this is to be expected on a synth of this age."

Novation Circuit as MIDI looper (first impression) w/ Suit & Tie Guy

Published on Mar 28, 2018 suitandtieguy

"Went a little nuts with the idea of using the Circuit as a MIDI looper now that it's had a few system updates. Kudos to Novation for maintaining a product for years now and constantly improving it.

I was told by a few people I left a few things out so I'll do another video like this when the Mio4 gets here.

At some point I'll even do videos about my own stuff!

Brought to you by TASCAM and Hosa."

In this demo, we ran a drum beat from drum modules through it with a little help from the WMD Variac distortion and Wave Compiler wave folder for extra madness to the sound."

Vintage Fender Chroma Polaris

via this auction

"New membrane panel and tuning in progress. Turn around time is ue to synth being in shop. This synth was manufactured in 1983 by Fender in Japan. It is very clean, and a fine example of a babied Polaris which has been in the studio. You're not likely to find a cleaner looking and performing Polaris on the market anywhere... This is a six-voice synth with a 61-key velocity sensitive keyboard. It has selective pitch bend, which lets you bend some notes in a chord while keeping others fixed. It has a MIDI interface, and includes a built-in sequencer."

Strange Multiplication: Sequence Contraction and Sequence Sequencing

Published on Mar 28, 2018 MAKEN0ISE

"Allen Strange wrote the book on modular synthesizers in the 1970s. Electronic Music: Systems, Techniques, and Controls. Unfortunately since the expanded 1982 edition, it has never been reprinted, and in today’s landscape where more people have access to modular synths than ever before, very few have access to the knowledge contained within. This video series will explore patches both basic and advanced from Strange’s text. Even the simplest patches here yield kernels of knowledge that can be expanded upon in infinite ways. I have been heavily influenced by Strange since long before I became a modular synth educator. Please share this knowledge far and wide.

This video shows the use of a VCA for things other than audio amplitude: automating the amplitude of a sequence ("sequence sequencing", and also automating the amplitude and frequency of a simultaneous pulse stream."

E-MU Emax SE - Additive Spectrum Interpolation Synthesis - PPG Wavetable - How to

Published on Mar 28, 2018 RetroSound

"(c) 2018 vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound

Many ask me over the last years 'Marko please show us the Spectrum Interpolation Synthesis feature of your E-MU Emax SE.
How it works and how can I draw new waveforms? How works the Time Slice mode for program PPG like wavetables?'

Ok. Here we are with a How to video. The video shows the most important features of the SE upgrade.

+ Additive Synthesis
+ Draw Waveforms
+ Time Slice
+ Interpolation

The Digital Spectum Synthesis is perfect for programming DX like bell sounds or PPG like wavetable sounds.
All new waveforms can you use for new sounds like a Hybrid Synthesizer with digital oscillators and analog filter and amplifier.

Befaco - Sampling Modulator *Mini Demo*

Published on Mar 28, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Here's a quick mini demo (see the link below for what and why it's a mini demo) of the Befaco Sampling Modulator. This one really took me by surprise as it's a trigger sequence, unique sample and hold, down sampler / sample rate reducer for audio or an oscillator ... and probably other things I didn't get chance to try out in my short time with it. Highly impressive, I feel like I *NEED*.a few of these."

"'Spin' with Roland Juno 106, Juno 60, and TR-909
I'm back. Sorry for taking so much time off. I really wanted to make some tunes this last couple of months, but I've been too busy working on my National Boards renewal. Here's a little ditty I made with the Roland TR-909 on the drums, Juno 106 on the BASS, and the Juno 60 taking the LEAD part. Thanks for listening. Take care and have a wonderful day! :)"
