PROPHET REV 2 Favorite Patches by Uriel Ortega

Published on May 12, 2018 Uriel Ortega

"These are some of my favorite patches separated by category. This synth can do quite a variety of patches. I mostly use this for huge poly synths, plucks and pads, and my peak for arps, and my Moog for leads and basses. I use a bit of Strymon Big sky, Timeline and Mobius because I prefer to sync my effects via midi."

Published on May 12, 2018 100 Things I Do

"Its always nice to get a new synth or pice of kit. Unfortunately this normally either costs serious money .. or worse... something leaves your music toolbox to pave (and pay) the way for the new next awesome thing. So when your not doing that it can be quite interesting and refreshing when you take something you already have and try and make it do a smiliar thing! Here I use the RYTM as a sample playback device. Not quite a Digitakt but avoiding almost totally the inbuilt sounds and instrument oscillators in the RYTM. Played live and recorded in Stereo with minimal studio trickery :D"

Oh and my FM Drone Synth plays along too."

Choral // Eurorack ambient Hermod Pluck Telharmonic Behringer D Plonk Plaits

Published on May 12, 2018 Lost For Words

Beautiful piece.

"Frozen moments of Pluck (guitar/string) + plonk (granular fuzz) are captured in uClouds in spectral madness mode and sound almost like a human choir or, at least, an 80s synth version of a choir.

Crunchy chords from Telharmonic are run through the Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water (KFM) pedal for random warble modulation.

A clone of the output of Pluck goes through Tapographic Delay for extra layers.

Behringer D (2 x ramp oscillator) for the bass/lead notes and Plaits on hi-hats.

Maths modulates the decay input on Pluck for that some-notes-picked, some-notes-strum sound.

Sequenced with Hermod and recorded into Reaper with a little reverb from Toraverb2."

023//Lost S.O.S. - Moog DFAM, Mother 32, Eventide Space self-generating minimal ambient patch

Published on May 12, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"A semi-self-generating patch using a Mother 32 and a DFAM sent through an Eventide Space hall reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on digital delay setting.

I haven't done a slow self-generating patch in a while, so I thought it would be nice to create something nice and creepy, similar to 006//R.E.M., and add percussion to it. While I was playing around the percussion became tonal bleeps, and this was the result!

The Mother 32 is being sent through the delay and reverb at 100% wet, while the DFAM is less wet. The Mother 32 is clocked by the LFO, with its sequencer glitched to run at 1/12 the tempo, while the DFAM runs at its own internal tempo. The Assign output is set to output a random stepped voltage, and that modulates several parameters such as filter resonance, mix amount, etc. The triangle LFO is modulating the volume of the DFAM, and the Gate output of the Mother 32 affects the FM amount of the DFAM's oscillators.

If you want to recreate this patch, you can find it here:"

The Best of Vintage Roland with Gilbert from Din Sync at Superbooth 2018

Published on May 12, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Gilbert from Din Sync brings together the "best of" that era of vintage Roland synths. MC-202 SH-101 SH-09 etc. It's a small desktop format DIY project for building a mono synth voice. It sounds great with that creamy filter and the extra modular level ins and outs are great for integrating it with other gear.

OdysseyBrute loop

Published on May 12, 2018 Ian R

"So this probably goes on way too long but it's mostly just an example of some of the sweet ear candy I've been finding from combining the Odyssey and Microbrute into a 3 Oscillator synth. I really need a proper 3 oscillator mono but in the meantime this is pretty fun.

The sequence was programmed on the Microbrute then CV triggered the Odyssey and the audio from the Odyssey is fed into the Microbrute. Also some textures from the SH01A off stage and drums from a PO 32 and MPC 1000. Enjoy."

Sweet Romance ! DIGITONE dating EURORACK | Mutable Instruments Clouds | modular synth + elektron

Published on May 12, 2018 Michael Kert

"IT HAS BEEN OVERDUE ! GRANULAR- meets FM-SYNTHESIS ! ;-) Sweet ambient Elektron Digitone melody transformed by fancy Mutable Instruments Clouds Eurorack module. This romance took only 2 minutes but I think they will proceed ;-)

Mutable Instruments Clouds is a texture synthesizer, a granular audio processor focused on realtime granularization of incoming audio signals and their transformation into amorphous textures.
Digitone is a very special eight voice digital synthesizer. It combines a modernized FM implementation with a classic subtractive synthesis signal flow, making it a powerful source of highly unique tones and timbres."
