VGM #138: Your Reality (Doki Doki Literature Club) Dark Atmospheric Synth Cover

Published on Apr 24, 2018 Ace Waters

"Like, there might be spoilers so if you have interest in this game, check it out. Its free. Also, if you are not into visual novels (like me) watch ProJared play through it. His LP is really really good.

but yeah, i JUST wanted to do a cover that betrayed the super sweet bubble guM flavor the game uses to as its cOstume and do a cover more reflective of the games true colors. i waNted to make everything unsettling, building patches that are constantly morphing and modulatIng. and yeah, oK, sampling whispers and then chopping them with a random lfo, delay and reverb really adds something to that uneAsy feeling i was hoping for. i hope you enjoy."

"Strange experiment carried out in a riverfront park next to a refinery.

Gear used is simple enough, all battery-powered and portable:
Volca Bass
Korg SR-1 recorder (with internal chorus effect)

Multiple tracks layered over each other; entire session took about an hour.

Produced with CyberLink PowerDirector 12"

Pittsburgh Lifeforms Percussion Sequencer Review Demo Tutorial Patches (All Features)

Published on Apr 24, 2018 SonicVoltage

"Pittsburgh Lifeforms Percussion Sequencer Review. Test Eurorack Trigger & Audio VCA Envelopes Sequencer. Modular Synth Sequencer with Four VCAs and Four Envelopes - Clickable Index in Description.

Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms Percussion Sequencer offers an original take on helping Eurorack Modular users creating and sequencing Eurorack Drums sounds. But looking at the specs this Lifeform sequencer should be able to offer 'sequencing' of more than just percussive patches.

The Percussion Sequencer eurorack module includes four VCAs and four Envelopes. It can be used to sequence audio signals and triggers to drive external patches."

Soma Laboratory LYRA-8 Synthesizer Sonic Exploration // Demo

Published on Apr 24, 2018 Datachrome

"Demo of the SOMA Laboratory LYRA-8 Organismic Synthesizer.

I'm quite surprised by that instrument wich is full of impredictability and rawness. It's sonic palette goes from heavenly chords to demonic speeches in just a turn of a knob, I love it!

An absolutely tiny amount of reverb, compression and EQ was added on the final signal to make the "Black Beast" shine.

With extracts from 'The Kingdom'

Enjoy and thanks for watching!"

2hp - Kick (808, soft, hard, distorted, boooooom)

Published on Apr 24, 2018 DivKidVideo

"For the third video is my #2hpTuesdays series here is the 2hp Kick! So far we've had the Pluck and Verb which show off the great quality of the 2hp range so far. The kick continues with that level of quality with Kicks ranging from soft and raw 808 like booms and clicks through to more driven, transient heavy (this thing smacks!) and pitch tracked kick/bassline hybrids. There's even a little soft melodic pattern in the video, why not! :)

Patch 8: Synaptic Paradox

"It's been a while since I've posted an all eurorack modular jam here (they're mostly on my instagram!).

At the core of this patch, we have the Intellijel Shapeshifter and Atlantis being sequenced by the Harvestman Stillson Hammer MK II, all running through clouds (because, obviously). Tons of modulation from MI Tides, uO_C Quadature, MN Function, and everything else you see.

I hope you enjoy!"

Vocalise Sintectica - John Keston - ISSTA 2017

Published on Apr 19, 2018 Daryl Feehely

"John Keston performing Vocalise Sintectica at the ISSTA 2017 concert in DkIT."

On what's going on in this performance via Audio Cookbook:

"Last September 2017 I performed at the Irish Sound in Science Technology and the Arts Conference ( in Dundalk, Ireland (video by Daryl Feehely). The performance makes use of a custom Max patch controlled by an iPad, a Novation Circuit, a KeyStep, and a Minifooger Delay pedal. It occurred to me that it might be interesting to share the roots and evolution of this piece, so here goes.

In my mind the origins of the piece can be traced back to my interest in granular synthesis. In 2009 I developed a Max based instrument I titled Grain Machine. It was essentially a touchscreen controlled granular synthesizer. I used this instrument for a number of projects including Words to Dead Lips, a dance piece in collaboration with Aniccha Arts. The instrument was played via a simple iOS interface designed in TouchOSC. A performer could access five samples, granulate them on an X-Y grid, or spin a virtual wheel with friction modeling to scrub or scratch through them..."

"In the first of our Found Sound series, check out Novation’s Timmy Harbour (and our resident dog Conkers) making a beat from rural sounds, a Launchpad & Ableton Live Lite.

We recorded a bunch of sounds, imported them into Ableton Live Lite, chopped them up & dragged them all onto a drum rack, which were mapped for Launchpad Pro in ‘note mode’.

We’ve made this rural sample pack available for you to download and we’d love to hear what you create. You can grab that here:

Rhodes Chroma w/ CC+ Midi ~ Poly Analog Synthesizer

"This one is in beautiful cosmetic condition and working 100%. It has just been serviced and with some restoration. As the title says, this one has the CPU Plus (CC+ Midi upgrade). It will come with the original pedal, the midi box, and a newly foamed road case made for this unit when it was originally purchased (from the original owner). It is likely the nicest Rhodes Chroma on Ebay."

"Great bass and percussive sounds and a unique sounding filter which can be accessed from an external inout. In very good condition.

This MS-10 has a switch for external input on or off. Another to patch the mod wheel to VCO pitch and the the other 3 patch modulation to PWM."

Curious if percussive analog is becoming a new trend.

Access Virus Indigo Synth

Published on Apr 20, 2018 LESINDES

"This is just exploring the ARTURIA MINIBRUTE 2 right after unpacking. Without reading the manual frist. Just PLAY & PLUG -- haha, so only was just fun and resulting in some exciting sounds.

I have been indecided which one I should take: 2 or 2S -- finally making up my mind for MB2. Main point was: in the 2S there is no octave switch not even hidden and there is no "keyboard mode" of the sequencer's step pads -- so this would make it pretty useless as an interface for my modular."

Noodling with Hermod the modular brain

Published on Apr 24, 2018 Molten Music Technology

"Not exactly a classic tune but I wanted to share my first bit of music making using the Squarp Instruments Hermod sequencer module. Takes a bit of time to work out and I've only begun unpacking the possibilities but it brings back a very musical approach to my Eurorack - not sure if that's what I want but I'm going with it. It also features the String Theory Solina Strings module from MakeSynthsNotWar which is ideally suited for Hermod as it needs a MIDI input. Erica Synths Graphic VCO, Black VCO and 2HP Pluck also had a major role. Drums from Pico Drums and 2HP HAT."
