Tricks for the Dreadbox Nyx - Making an ADSR Envelope

Published on Mar 31, 2018 ProckGnosis

"And here's Nyx 'Trick #3' or "some info how to create an ADSR or 4 or 5 stage envelope using MOD 1 and MOD 2." If you like math, but are newer to synths, I would watch "Part 2" at 07:07 first and THEN go back to Part 1 at 02:14.

Part 1 - The Examples (02:14)
Part 2 - The ADSR Academics (07:07)

This is likely my last "Tricks for the Nyx" video for a while. The video is split into 2 parts: part 1 gives a worked through example of setting up a 4 or 5 stage envelope, and part 2 gets a bit more basic (the academic part), explaining how envelopes are usually shaped and how different envelopes can be shaped on the Nyx by adding the smaller MOD 1 and MOD 2 envelopes together.

I'm probably turning off some newbs by showing how the Nyx is a bit more complicated than most normal synths, but for me, that's a large part of what makes it cool. If you're a newb and you bought a Nyx, be is WORTH the investment of time to learn. Cheers!"

All parts here.

Paper Jamz Pro Mic Aetherial Noise Generator

circuitbent feedback box Published on Mar 31, 2018 paul tas

via Error Instruments

"This is an aleatoric aethereal electronic noise generator.

The original sound comes out by plugging a mic or aux, and the signal is processed by an effects processor which is pretty amazing for a toy.

My bents allow all the feedbacks to be self generated, so it becomes a constantly evolving mysterious drone.

The audio input is also radically effected by the feedback noise.

- High pitch feedback
- Low pitch signal (sub)"

And via Wikipedia:

"Paper Jamz was a collection of musical toys, produced by WowWee. Introduced in 2010, Paper Jamz were paper thin musical toys, which included guitars, microphones, keytars, drum kits, and amplifiers. They were also marketed as 'Instant Rock Star' instruments.

There were no physical buttons, knobs or keys used while playing the instruments. Instead, the battery-operated instruments featured a printed, touch-and-gesture enabled surface. The toy company produced Snoop Dogg themed guitars in 2011.[1]"

音光 (Onkou) - Light Controller for Modular Synthesizer (Breakbeat Demo)

Published on Mar 31, 2018 Takumi Ogata

"音光 (Onkou) is a light controller for Eurorack modular synthesizer system. The module has a camera that can detect X, Y, and Z positions as well as the hue color of the light. Each of these 4 parameters are mapped to a control voltage (4 separate control voltage outputs). The custom light source consists of on/off button, a knob for controlling the hue of the light, and a switch that is used to go back and forth between auto and manual mode. In auto-mode, the module takes in two separate control voltage inputs and send on/off and hue messages to the light source via bluetooth. In this demo video, wavetable control voltage from Qu-Bit Chance module is used to randomly change the hue color and sequenced gate control voltage is used for the light’s on/off pattern.

Hardware/Software used:
Make Noise Morphagene = main sound source controlled by the light controller
Qu-Bit Chance = random control voltage for light hue control
Make Noise Tempi = On/off message for the light
Ableton Live

Huge thanks to Hanyu (Alan) Liu for helping me out with the algorithm. I couldn’t have finished this project without his immense help."

Moog Opus 3 SN 3770

via this auction

"The Moog Opus 3 is a powerful, 3-voice (strings, brass and organ) Polyphonic synth that has those incredible, fat Moog filters (in stereo with panning!) and that vintage grit that makes this an endlessly toneful, useful and fun addition to your studio or to the stage. Kraftwerk, 808 State, the Rentals and many others have turned to the Opus 3 for its delicious tones. Detach from your endless plug-ins for a few hours and revel in the analog, tactile goodness of this classic, vintage Moog!"

"Excellent condition with some very light play wear and a couple dings in the wood sides. Overall condition is a collector-worthy 9 out of 10."

NOS Vintage Roland RS-202 Analog String Synth

via this auction

"Purchased last year from a Roland dealer last as a NOS [New Old Stock] item (in his basement for 30 years, he had never sold it), this single owner RS-202 was recently serviced. Tech tested & replaced various components and all capacitors (including power supply) other than the key capacitors (each key has a capacitor). Key caps did not need to be done as all keys work.

The RS-202 is a classic. It really sounds excellent. Very nice with a phaser. Just a lot of fun. Brings to mind early Genesis/Tony Banks among others. And since this unit has been completely serviced, and has less then 10 total hours of playing time on it, it is currently functioning like a new machine."

MFB Dominion X SED 3 VCO Analog Mono Synthesizer

via this auction

"For sale a rare MFB Dominion X SED 3 VCO analog mono synth. It’s in perfect working order. There is a minor scratch on the right wooden end panel but is otherwise in perfect condition. This is the later version, with the SED style filter. Sounds incredible.

Includes power supply with US adaptor.


The Dominion X offers 3 x oscillators for maximum flexibility. Each waveform can be varied in symmetry. Besides altering the pulse width of a rectangle, you may also continuously turn a saw tooth into a triangle and a triangle into a sine. All oscillators also offer ring modulation. In addition, VCO 2 and VCO 3 can be synced to VCO1. Finally, VCO3 can modulate the frequency of VCO 1 and VCO 2. The analogue oscillator circuit is processor-controlled for stable tuning. To complete the available sound sources, noise or an external audio input can be added to the VCOs in the Dominion X's mixer section.

The filter offers 6 x operation modes. Available are 3 x low pass variations with 12, 18 and 24 dB/oct. slopes. Also available are high pass-, band pass and a notch filter with slopes of 12 dB/oct. respectively 6 dB/oct. Variable filter modulations are possible via an invertible envelope, keyboard tracking, LFO, VCO, different MIDI controllers as well as by the use o the CV-input.
