Sun - Featuring Peter Zinovieff of EMS

Published on Jul 19, 2017 NUSTEM

This performance was during the Rainwire [Processed] installation at University of Hull by Noyzelab.

"Poet Katrina Porteous and composer Peter Zinovieff collaborated to produce a planetarium experience of live poetry, wrap-around visuals, and surround-sound music. The piece is an artistic response to the work of Northumbria University's Solar Physics Research Group.

Sun premiered at Newcastle's Life Science Centre planetarium on November 18th 2016.

This version was produced for follow-on performances, and for YouTube. For more background about the piece, and the wider context of the Imagining the Sun project of which this was part, see:"

"Imagining the Sun is a collaboration of a poet, a sound artist and a visual artist with Northumbria University’s solar physics research group, supported by the outreach specialists at NUSTEM. The project challenges public and schools audiences to explore how approaches from art and science can complement and inform each other. Alongside the schools programme sit a series of public performances and exhibitions."


Peter Zinovieff, of course, was the founder of EMS.

"A scientist, composer, librettist and pioneer of electronic music, in the 1960s Peter was one of the first people in the world to use a computer to create music.

With David Cockerell and Tristram Cary he formed Electronic Music Studios, which created some of the earliest electronic instruments, including the seminal VCS3.

Peter’s instruments – and particularly the techniques he pioneered, like sampling – continue in widespread use."

Patchwerks Signals 2018 Seattle Synth Meet Pics

Signals 2018 - Patchwerks Synth Meet

Some pics from this year's Signals Synth Meet hosted by Patchwerks in Seattle, WA. Hover over the image and click on the right arrow to flip through pics.

Roland showed their new System 500 eurorack modules by Malekko, it is now official. Industrial Music Elecectronics, aka The Harvestman, had their new Piston Honda mkII with built-in graphic display. Synthwerks, a Seattle native, were showing their modules. As is tradition, a ton of people brought their own gear to share with others. You'll spot a Fairlight from (click through for a great shot of the system at Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada), an EMS SYNTHI, a DATO DUO and some old school rotary phones (not sure what they did as I didn't get a chance to check them out), some alternative/diy controllers, and of course plenty of eurorack, 5U (John L Rice), and Buchla modular. Also the only MATRIXSYNTH military hat in existence! :) It's owned by Larry Kleinke, aka Computer Controlled, who had the Roland gear, white Korg Arp Odyssey desktop, and Abstrakt Instruments Avalon.

Synth Stuff Ep. 37 - Ensoniq VFX-SD

Published on Apr 15, 2018 tritonrecordings

"The VFX was an upgrade from the likes of the ESQ-1. The 'SD' version added a sequencer and probably competed with the Korg M1. Like most digital synths like these, they are great pad machines - some patches remind me of the Wavestation. The orchestral/acoustic sounds haven't aged well but they don't sound bad...they just sound very 80s. They are cheap enough to make them worth checking out if you come across one and want some of that digital character in your arsenal."

Modular + Pedals #14: Mutable Instruments Plaits - Red Panda Particle

Published on Apr 15, 2018 Modular + Pedals

"Patch notes:

ALM Busy Circuits Pamela's New Workout is the main clock and trigger sequencer.

Channel 1 sends a random gate to trigger the Korg SQ-1 (settings: x1, Gate, RSkip CV1).

Channel 2 is triggering the S&H on Mutable Instruments Kinks (settings: /2, Gate, RSkip CV1, EStep 05, ETrig 05).

Channel 3 sends a gate to the strum input on Rings (settings: x2, Gate, RSkip CV1).

Channel 5 is self-patched into the CV1 input on Pam's, sending a random CV to control the amount of random skipping on the rest of the tracks (settings: /5, Random, Level 70%, Offset 30%, Width 100%).

Channel 6 is triggering the kick drum on channel 1 of Mutable Instruments Peaks (settings: x1, Gate, RSkip CV1, EStep 05, ETrig 03).

Channel 7 is triggering the strike input on the second channel of Make Noise LxD (settings: x1, Gate, RSkip CV1, EStep 05, ETrig 04).

Ode to TR-8, the last jam

Published on Apr 15, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Since I am giving away the Roland TR-8, I wanted to create a last jam with it, sort of a farewell song.

I am starting to get a bit of a cold, so apologies in advance if the mixing is off (cant really hear the levels properly) .. also there is a miss or two in the track, but what the heck, it is live from the heart and uncut.

Thank you TR-8 for all the good times, you will be missed.

Gear Used:

TR-8, Avalon bassline and the KORG volca keys. Keeley caverns delay + rev on the volca, el capistan delay on the bassline, bluesky plate reverb on the TR-8 for that old school vibe.

I start with a pre-looped drum track in reverse on the ditto X2 in the beginning.

E352 Cloud Mode 'World' Drums

Published on Apr 15, 2018 The Mad Music Machine

"We use the E352 & E370 in Cloud Mode to create some rhythms inspired by some of the sounds we heard at the WOMAD Festival.

The only sound sources in the patch are the E352 and voice 3 of the E370.

We use the pico sequencers to 'tune' the voices but the gates and the patterns are set by the Circadian Rhythms."


✯RARE✯ EDP Caterpillar for EDP Wasp Gnat Synth

via this auction

"An extremely rare 'Caterpillar' controller designed by Chris Huggett. The caterpillar has four ports on the back for controlling up to four EDP synthesizers via 7 pin DIN sockets. One link cable is also included (not pictured in this sale).

As you can see this has aged really well, and has been recently serviced by SRS prior to sale.

The two controls on the front panel are for:

1. selecting how many devices you want to control (1-4 or Voice setting).

2. Selecting Unison, Poly or Cycle, there is also a separate Hold setting that gives you the option of also selecting Unison, Poly or Cycle.
The unit powers off of a single 9V battery.

Note: There is a design flaw with the Wasp circuitry that does not allow the lowest C note (first key from the left) to trigger the Wasp. However by the time EDP designed the Gnat they fixed this problem and the lowest C note will trigger a Gnat, this has been tested as I also own a Gnat and Gnat Special. The unit has been tested working fully prior to listing."

Serge Modular Synth (Random Source) La Bestia II

via this auction

"This is a just-finished La Bestia II. This is the one with the all-new, all-R*S PCBs, re-designed with Serge himself. I've heard them called 5th Generation Serge and I think that's a pretty good description.

It comes with one of the R*S power supplies (a prototype so no labelling on this one) so you are ready to go out of the box. If you don't have any, I'll throw in half a dozen banana cables too."

I believe this is the first post to feature the mk II model. You can find a couple of previous posts featuring the original La Bestia here. Note with Serge, the names of systems correlate to configurations of various individual modules grouped into one panel. The individual modules themselves are not always new, but rather the configuration / system.

Sequential Circuits Prophet VS SN 0160

via this auction

"This is an amazing synth in excellent condition cosmetically and in perfect working order. Recently meticulously checked over and serviced by Synth-man extraordinaire James Walker (18th Feb 2018). Latest Sequential software installed, new EL backlight installed, new aftertouch sensors installed, keyboard contacts cleaned, buttons replaced, various chips and connectors replaced to ensure everything is tiptop. Frankly it was working perfectly when I took it to him but he kept checking, replacing components, tweaking and fettling. He is a bit of a perfectionist. I would be surprised if you can find a better one though, as you might expect of a 32 year old unit there is the odd little mark (but you can see how nice it is from the pictures). This unit has had the original factory presets restored giving you a real taste of the mid 80s and onwards."

As i was noodling around on the Arturia Minibrute 2s and had it running through the Strymon BigSky, i was soaked into this dark and very atmospheric Pad-Sound, which instantly made me thought about Syria and all the conflicts in the world! From then on it was only a matter of adding something with the Elektron Analog Four - and i ended up with this!
