"The video's not strictly real time with the music, but shows the patch that's playing (itself). Reverse chords from Waldorf Blofeld played back by Disting Mk4 into Clouds. Mother 32 filter heavily modulated to give the space-dust crackle. Bass noise from Erica Pico modules. Pico Logic A + Octocontroller S&H provide unpredictability throughout."

ARP OMNI II - Vintage Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"If you are familiar with The Cars “Good Times Roll” or Joy Division “Love Will Tear Us Apart” you know the legendary sounds the OMNI II is capable of.

This unit was fully serviced and electronically restored by Synth Chaser in San Diego, CA. Nathan is one of America’s foremost experts on ARP OMNI repair (as well as other vintage synths) – and posts videos of his repair and restoration work (including this one) on Youtube.

Besides all the work done to bring this synth back to original ARP 100% glory I also had the optional 4075 filter upgrade done, as well as the SynthChaser Orange LED slider kit installed. Very helpful seeing all the slider settings onstage, having the sliders move easily. Plus having light-up LEDs that match the ARP color scheme looks cool.

As you can imagine, this unit sounds amazing - haunting and period correct.

Here is the rundown of this Omni II and what was done:

ARP OMNI 2 S/N #24734115 (OMNI II)

All polarized capacitors recapped – 106 caps total.

SynthChaser Orange LED precision slider kit upgrade.

Key bed refurbished: buss bar cleaned, key contacts adjusted, key bed leveled, bushing kit installed.

Switch board troubleshooting and repair. XLR jacks replaced.

Optional 4075 Voltage Controlled Filter Enhancement & recap performed

Two switches replaced.

All LED’s replaced to provide uniform brightness.

Keys removed, cleaned and leveled.

Synthesizer calibrated to factory specification.

Comes with vintage road case."

Military Chopper | 3D Binaural | Moog Voyager | Modular | Roland System 100 & 700

Published on Apr 21, 2018

"Use good quality headphones for best effect. This is a 3D Binaural recording generated from a third order Ambisonic mix.

Basics of patch....

Chopper engine LF and rotor LF generated from Q106 oscillator into two Dotcom Q107 filters in series. 1st Q107 resonant LPF output into 2nd Q107 input. Notch output into Moog Voyager external input via Dotcom Q109 EG & Q108 VCA.

Voyager oscillators generate rotor low mid frequency whine. Osc frequency modulated from Voyager LFO which is sync'd to Roland System 100 sample and hold clock.
System 100 s/h clock into Dotcom Q109 EG gate input. Output driving Dotcom Q108 VCA to amplitude modulate rotor LF and engine LF.

Voyager noise source generates wind noise from rotors.

Roland SH09 LFO output, second Dotcom Q106 oscillator, two LFOs in System 100 and two analog step sequencers (Roland System 100 and System 700) generate more LFO modulating signals for the various oscillators and filters to randomize things for more realism.

Atmospheric noise and rotor HF generated from System 100. That signal is also processed in REAPER via multiple extremely narrow HF resonant peak EQ bands in ReaEQ to generate rotor whistle from System 100 modulated pink noise. Whistle fed into Valhalla UberMod to smear HF for more realism.

UberMod also used for atmospheric phasing. Atmospheric ambience generated via Valhalla Room reverb in Ambisonic configuration.

Chopper panning generated in third order Ambisonics via Blue Ripple Sound hemispheric panner.
Doppler shifting as chopper passes overhead generated via Waves Doppler.

Binaural output for video generated via Blue Ripple Sound Binaural Headphone decoder.

Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything!!"

Retroaktiv SSH Complex Sample & Hold and Waveform Generator with Noise Source

1. Retroaktiv SSH - Explaining SLOPE and SLEW functions in 30 Seconds
2. Retroaktiv SSH - Sequencing with SSH and Alpha Juno
3. Retroaktiv SSH - Syncronizing SSH to a sequencer

"Complex Sample & Hold and Waveform Generator with Noise Source

SSH is a random voltage generator and wave shaper. This S&H has a built in LFO and noise source, allowing for stepped and slewed random waveforms to be generated without any patching or external modules. The stepped S&H waveform can be accessed directly from the STEP output jack, or the waveform can be run through an "intelligent" slew limiter, which allows for smooth slewing between steps. The on-board slew limiter is equipped with a shaping circuit, which allows for the slew to vary between the classic R-C type of glide and linear glide. SSH features some other unique functions, which allow for an amazing variety of waveforms to be generated.

On-board LFO with voltage controlled rate, normalized to the sample & hold trigger generator. External triggering input jack as well.

Sample & hold generator is normalized to an internal white noise source, allowing for "random" stepped waveforms to be generated. External signals between +/-8V can be sampled using the EXT input jack. Stepped S&H output can be accessed using STEP output jack.

Separate output for slewed S&H waveform. (SLEW) Slew amount is voltage controlled. Slope of the slewing is voltage controlled and can be varied between a classic RC glide and linear glide. Using the RISE/BOTH/FALL switch, slew can be active when the S&H waveform is rising, falling, or can be always active (switch in middle position)

SLOPE can be controlled using external CVs. If the SLOPE input is fed a negative voltage, then the slope of the output waveform becomes 0 (A horizontal line), and the voltage is held at the last S&H voltage until the SLOPE CV becomes positive again. For example, if a +/-5vpp square wave were fed into the SLOPE CV input, and the SLOPE CV knob were slowly turned from 0 to max, while the square wave input is less than 0V, the SLOPE output will be held at it's last value, the positive half of the square would determine the slope of the output waveform. The "pause" feature is only available when in SYM mode.

Symmetry control switch - By using the SYM/ASM switch, slew slope can be "opposite" on rising and falling waveforms. If the SYM mode is selected, the slope of the slewed waveform will correspond to the SLOPE CV controls. If ASM is selected, when the slewed waveform is rising, the current SLOPE setting will be applied. When falling, the "opposite" SLOPE setting will be applied. This allows for RC or linear curves to be applied when the S&H waveform is rising, and the opposite curve to be applied when falling, which allows for unique output waveforms to be created. A rear panel header provides separate 5V RISE and FALL gate signals.

This module is 10HP and packs a sophisticated sample & hold generator, waveshaper, and noise source into a compact module."

Critter & Guitari - 1,024,192,512 Combinations Part Deux

Published on Apr 22, 2018 Critter & Guitari

"This video is a very tiny example of the over 1 Billion sonic combinations possible when using three Organelles running the '1008' patch!

The '1008' patch features 9 synths/samplers, 8 sequencers, and 14 effects. Choose one of each to build up a sound. There are 1,008 possible combinations (9x8x14)!

With three Organelles using '1008' there are 1,024,192,512 possible combinations (1008x1008x1008)!

We made another video with the Organelles connected in a MIDI chain for even more craziness:" [posted here]

Behringer Model D in a Waldorf KB37 - Eurorack Starter

Published on Apr 22, 2018 ProckGnosis

"Here's my first step working with eurorack modular. And yes, it's a very safe way to start, considering the Behringer Model D costs less than many one-function modules, and offers everything I need for starting out.

My 3 big take-aways from this "proof of concept" would be:
1. The Behringer Model D sounds pretty decent. I've heard enough examples that I'm not too shocked, but I am still a bit surprised.
2. For people who like modular and playing keyboards and synths, the KB37 is an awesome way to combine both worlds.
3. Yes, modular does appear to be a black hole, and it will definitely put a dent in my wallet and bank account.

And a bonus observation...the Studio Electronics 4075 filter module is SWEEEEEET.

Thanks to DivKid for a great vid showing how he installed the Behringer Model D in a eurorack."

Behringer Model D #02 - Eurorack Case Installation

Published on Feb 2, 2018 DivKidVideo

"In the second video (not the jam videos, I numbered / titled those separately) on the Behringer Model D we look at installing the module into a euro rack case. I did plan on covering this later in the series but as I wanted it in the modular for ease of control/modulation/use in my set up and also to have it next to the Mordax DATA oscilloscope here we go. You remove 8 screws, lift up the panel and then remove two cables/connectors and then add the euro rack ribbon power cable to the module, plug that into your euro rack bus board, screw the module onto the rails and you're off. Simple!"

ELKA X30 Organ VS. EFFEXX Multi FX Module

Published on Apr 22, 2018 Jörg Schaaf

"Last night I brought the ELKA X30 together with our RT-1701 Multi EFFEXX module and checked the string ensemble in combination with the tape delay, reverb and the stereo phaser of our module. At the end I added a bass sound from my favorite polyphonic synth - the Accelerator. Oddly enough I started to play typical Jean-Michel Jarre chord progressions. So I decided remove the FX module from the signal chain again."

Exploring the Akai Timbre Wolf's Unison Mode

Published on Apr 22, 2018 HardtekStudios

"A lot of people are really underestimating the power of the Akai Timbre Wolf. You have four basic mono bass synths that can be stacked with different setting, or even output to different processors for massive layering possibilities. You can even throw it into poly mode for some analog wave sequencing-like effects. The Timbre Wolf can be bought very inexpensively, so I would say the biggest downfall is it's large footprint."

Korg Monologue 'Modulations & Resonances' by DreamsOfWires

Published on Apr 22, 2018 DreamsOfWires

"Korg Monologue sounds featuring the use of modulation on the resonance and oscillator waveforms using the LFO and slider control. If you delve into the synth's settings you can apply the slider control to various different functions; for example, here I'm using it to add more resonance in some sounds.
The synth seems to be quite good at creepy soundtrack stuff, hence the footage of gnarly, deserted old streets. The BBC Radiophonic Workshop would have probably used one in the 70's when their Odyssey or EMS broke down :P
This will be the last of my Monologue videos, which I recorded before I sold it. If in the future I win the lottery of find myself a rich Mommy, then I might pick up another, but for now I need all the money I can get for other gear.

Thank you to all of you who have purchased my music on Bandcamp, it is greatly appreciacted. I don't want to sound like a popular UK supermarket, but every little helps. 2 more releases are to follow as soon as I can find the time to finish them. More info on Facebook as and when.
P.S. I don't provide synth presets/patches, sorry. Also, I don't make 'how to' videos or do gear reviews, and I can't possibly recommend which instrument you should buy, as it's entirely subject to personal taste. I just make the music I enjoy, using instruments I like, and hope that others will either enjoy it or be inspired to create. Thanks for your understanding and for listening."
