Dreadbox Erebus v3 Filter Sweeps

Published on May 13, 2018 ProckGnosis

"Just some quickly executed filter sweeps on the new Dreadbox Erebus v3 I was able to record at Superbooth 2018 (plus a boatload of extra footage just screwing around with it). The new Erebus sounds great, and once again it shows how Dreadbox just keep building on their ideas. This has plenty of the original Erebus DNA, plus a touch of the Abyss, Nyx, and even Murmux v2 heritage as well.

Some of the big advantages this has over the original Erebus (v1 or v2)?
1. Extra (3rd) Oscillator
2. Mixable LP/HP filter
3. More modular patch points
4. Frequency Modulation
5. Loopable envelopes
6. Cool triple ring effect"

Rare Vintage RMI DK-20 Digital Piano / Preset Synthesizer

A rare piece spotted by MATRIXSYNTH reader Kaden Harris on Craigslist.

"Here's your chance to own a rare early digital preset synthesizer! The DK-20 by Rocky Mount Instruments, Inc (RMI) was produced from 1979 to 1982. So rare, I can't find any demo videos of it on YouTube. It featured the latest digital technology at the time and I believe was one of the first digital pianos. 68 keys. Includes the volume pedal, sostenuto toe stud, and sustain pedal and legs/stand. You can control the decay curves, timing, and release characteristics along with mixers, phasers, and modifiers. Everything works. Asking $750."

Node Live at the Royal College of Music Now Available on CD and Download

You can find a teaser video of the performance previously posted here. Node features supporting MATRIXSYNTH member, Dave Bessell.

Click the images for the larger shots. This is an amazing setup.

"The Node Live album is now available as CD and Download on DiN records. The CD features a six page booklet and wrap around sleeve showing the full stage set up which features an alarmingly large list of classic and modern analogue equipment. Shock and Awe just about covers it!

This is the real deal, all sounds where created on the spot for the gig. Even the analogue sequencers where tuned by hand - no pitch quantisers! The tuning, sequence programming and patching alone took six hours. For the live situation we featured a little more percussion than we usually do which adds a new dimension. It was recorded at the Royal College of Music as four stereo feeds, one from each band member plus an ambience track of the room sound. It was then mixed by Alan Meyerson who is more normally found mixing Hollywood blockbuster soundtracks for Hans Zimmer."

Custom Wood Case for Behringer Model-D and Arturia Keystep by Torsten Update

This is a follow-up to this post. The custom case by Torsten is now complete and will be shipping in July/August for those interested.

"The first 10 Behringer Model-D cases will be manufactured in July 2018. Shipping end of July / beginning of August. Cases can be already pre-ordered for 279 $ + 79 $ shipping.

A beautiful hand crafted wooden housing made out of high quality Multiplex for Arturia KeyStep and Behringer Model D. The case is custom-made in a small carpenter’s workshop here in Qatar. The design is leaned towards the original Minimoog Model D but in a much smaller shape. Like the original, the housing of the synthesizer- and eurorack modules can be fold down."

Erica Synths DIY Polivoks Eurorack Modular Synth MK1

via this auction

"This is a Mk 1 Erica synths Polivoks Eurorack kit built by me. LFO, 2 VCO's, mixer,VCF, 2x ADSR, VCA. Midi > CV is from a Pittsburgh modular Midi2. It is duophonic like the original polivoks. There is no power supply but there is a ribbon cable to power all modules from a standard Eurorack +/- 12v supply. It doesnt need 5v. The modules are in a Modular Studio EURORACK Rail & 19" Rack ears kit (this acts as a desk stand if you dont want to rack mount it. The modules are held in with 2.5mm screws and I'll provide a bag of spares. I've changed the ADSR's to give a faster envelope but this can be changed with 1 capacitor in each ADSR. VCO's track reasonably and could doubtless be improved with patience. I'll supply circuit diagrams etc but these are on the Erica site. This is real analog with Russian IC's and transistors, quirky waveforms and a proper Polivoks filter. If anything dies Erica can supply spares of the obscure stuff.

Erica synths are selling the Mk2 version fully built for 1600 euros so this is a bargain."

Influencing Feedback with Dark Matter & Party Mix from Casper & BASTL at Superbooth 2018

Published on May 13, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Dark Matter from Casper Electronics & BASTL brings in feedback, EQ, distortion and envelope following into a single eurorack module made to embrace, create and control feedback. There's a range of unique tones and ways to control them. Party Mix is a simple small utility style output/performance mixer and looks great too. I look forward to seeing these develop and come to life later in the year.

Mid/Side Stereo Action, Vector Based Modulation & Vactrol Turing Expanders with Worng Electronics at

Published on May 13, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Morgan at Worng Electronics presents a range of new modules included the improved and now released LRMSMSLR which is a stereo input and output device that converts stereo inputs to a mid and side signal then converts mid and side signals back to stereo. Mid-Side processing is a powerful function and it allows for modulation of stereo width and turning mono sources into stereo sounds by processing the side output from a single mono module (like a buy one get one free for your FX which is ace!) There's also the Vector Space which pushing input voltages around both cuboid and spherical shapes to create multiple modulation sources from only a few inputs. Finally there's the Vactrol based Low Pass Gate expander for the Turing Machine from Music Thing Modular.

Moog Sub Phatty+ Meris Mercury7, New Favorite Reverb!

Published on May 13, 2018 Uriel Ortega

What does that remind me of... OMD! I forget the track though. If you know feel free to comment.

"Check out my new favorite reverb: the Mercury 7 from Meris. I made a video of me trying it for the first time, and it definitely competes with the Strymon Big Sky and the H9 reverb that I use a lot. Enjoy, and expect more videos of the Mercury7 with the Novation Peak, Prophet Rev 2, and the D-05 from Roland!"

"Guys, I hope you have a great day.!!!

I reached Vertice from Euterpe Synthesizer Laboratories again and used it at Leipzig-S from Analogue Solutions.
Leipzig-S is a powerful analog synth but I added this filterbank to him because I was curious about the effect, I am obviously positively surprised.

you can check the part of this game.!!!😁

I think I will be able to add more interesting mods soon.

Vertice is a powerful analog filterbank with the possibility of patching up your CV so you can do many interesting ideas with different equipment."
