Rescue Poole

Published on Apr 21, 2018 davidryle

"Taking inspiration from a sonar rescue sequence in a 50 year old film.

The sliding ping sound (approaching the target) features the STG Soundlabs Envelope Generator and Sidecar module. I am using a slow LFO with a ramp wave to the T1 input which controls the delay of the envelope. There are three timed gates. One is from the source LFO which fires the envelope initially and makes the FM/Sync sound. The other two (low ping and high ping) are from the EG T1 and T4 stages. Panning is with a Q111 pan module from

The original film sounds are much less complicated and only two sounds are used to create the sonar effect. In this example I used three sounds but the idea is the same in general."

Synclaver V & Hardware Vintage Synclavier II

Published on Apr 21, 2018 100 Things I Do

"I have owned the hardware Synclavier II for a while now and what might surprise some people is that I also still use the Arturia Synclavier V. In some ways they can sound very much alike, in others they can be a very different beast.

I started to do a clip comparing the Synclavier V to the Vintage Synclavier II and ended up starting a track! So how do they sit together in a mix ? Pretty well actually.

I will get back to a direct comparison soon... well .. as soon as I can figure out how to do it without it turning into a flame war :D"

ROLAND JUPITER-6 Vintage Analog Synthesizer w/ Europa

via this auction

"Very good condition Roland Jupiter 6, professionally restored and with Europa mod installed, which adds additional sequencing, arpeggiation, sound control, and MIDI capabilities.

This is simply an incredible synthesizer, with some of the widest capabilities available during its time:
- 2x LFOs, each with multiple waveforms
- 2x VCOs each with multiple waveform choices
- VCO cross-modulation
- PWM modulation
- independent VCO detune
- 2x ADSR envelopes
- Polyphonic Glide
- Keyboard split (so bottom & top half of keyboard can use different patches with a 2/4 or 4/2 voice split)
- 6 voice unison mode
- Polyrhythmic sequencing & arpeggiation
- Patch/preset memory"

Behringer Roland System 100m Clones - Full Line-up of Modules & Details on Each

Follow-up to this post. Some additional details from Uli Behringer:

“These are 13 MID’s or concept documents we create for every single product as part of our PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) process before we hand them over to our R&D departments for development,” he notes. “We haven’t decided yet which of these modules we will actually produce as it is important that we achieve a certain production volume.”

“This is just the beginning,” he adds. “Our Vision is to build both legacy modules but also come up with innovative solutions which we have demonstrated with the DeepMind or the Neutron.”

We are equally excited to cooperate with creative module makers and many have already contacted us. We believe that such co-operations are mutually beneficial and I am convinced that our efficient supply chain can help these makers to get their products into the hands of lots of people. We are looking forward to meeting as many designers as possible at SuperBooth.”

Scramble Everything - Pitch Scrambling Effect from Optotronics

Published on Apr 21, 2018 e j

From the makers of Oi, Kant!

"purchase here:

Scramble Everything is a strange little synthesiser: both sound generator (it generates random sequences) and an effects unit, a pitch shifter.

The scramble suit in ‘Scanner Darkly’ was “an invention of the Bell laboratories, conjured up by accident by an employee named S. A. Powers... Basically, his design consisted of a multifaceted quartz lens hooked up to a million and a half physiognomic fraction-representations of various people: men and women, children, with every variant encoded and then projected outward in all directions equally onto a superthin shroudlike membrane large enough to fit around an average human. In any case, the wearer of a scramble suit was Everyman and in every combination (up to combinations of a million and a half sub-bits) during the course of each hour. Hence, any description of him - or her - was meaningless.”

Scramble Everything is the scramble suit of synthesisers. Whatever source you use on the input, the output will be completely scrambled, human and non-human speech-like sounds.
The main star of Scramble Everything is the pitch filter effect unit based on robotic voice modulator IC – HT8950 – which can be used either together with the internal random sequencer, or as a standalone effects unit. You can then, following Philip K. Dick, use any input source and scramble the shit out of it. Does the output still contain remains of the original sound? If you want to jump between two realities you can use the special slider that will easily transport you to the other side. Spooky! Can it get more sci-fi? Yes. The filter’s frequency not only can be controlled with the knob, but also with the light. Scramble Everything contains an RGB light source, and its colour sequence (controlled by the internal random sequencer) changes the tone of the filter. The scramble tone then depends on the intensity of each colour (red, green and blue). Additionally Scramble Everything contains three switches for each colour, so you can decide if you want to have smooth or abrupt transitions between the colours.
You can also control the amount of slide between the steps, switch from staccato to legato and vice-versa, control the pitch of the sequencer and its frequency range.
You can also use the random trigger output to trigger external sound sources.

If you want to know more about scrambled realities, please have a look at the Scramble Reading Pack here:

Scramble Everything runs on either 9 or 12V power supply, 600mA minimum. You can also use a 9V battery.
It has 5.5mm x 2.1mm power barrel (center negative):

Scramble Everything was designed by Ewa Justka. Some of the conceptual framework of the machine is a result of a collaboration between Ewa Justka and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros."

1. Fake a stereo delay - 00:08
2. Sidechain 'compression' - 02:28
3. Generate random gates (and melodies) - 03:37
4. Make an ADSR envelope - 05:13
5. 4-voice chord progression - 07:08

This is my second tutorial video for the Mother 32, showing how to patch some of the more advanced techniques I use to get the most out of 2 together. Enjoy!

Music algorithms perform a melodic synthesizer duet

Published on Apr 20, 2018 EA78751

"I’m testing new hardware for algorithmic/generative music composition. This is a recording of an improvised melodic duet performed on two analog synthesizers simultaneously. The sequences are generated by an algorithm I’ve developed. It accepts guidance from the performer using a MIDI controller as input. The performer uses parameters that affect the melody, rhythm, timbre, and structure. Running two of the sequencers in parallel gives interesting harmonic effects, and provides much fun. –Eric Archer / Rare Waves LLC (2018)"
