"In this video i am testing my effect modular case. I used only the mono piano from the Sledge synth as tonal source.
I used modules from DIY Ken Stone Real Ring Modulator, Doepfer Sampler A-112 and A-127 VCRF, Mutable Instruments Clouds and Ears, DIY Diodeclipper, Grendel Formantfilter, ...

I didn't put much effort in the piano playing and sadly also not in the correct focusing of the camera."

"A simple drone with DREADBOX NYX with a little help from some modular friends because I could not find an internal patch or way to cinfigure it as a drone machine due to a missing VCA control knob -- too bad! So I had to get some external constant voltage from MUTABLE INSTRUMENT STAGES to to keep the Nyx VCA going!
This is one of the first Nyxes that were built without SMD! Serial 60."

The Nava 909 is by e-licktronic.

1. Nava 909 Duett (Roland TR909 clone)
I recently finished assembling two further Nava TR909 clones. Before letting one go I thought it might be fun chaining two units together... ;)
2. NAVA Drum Computer (Roland TR 909 Clone) and MFB Dominion 1
First test run, nothing special. Just a few patterns... Unfortunately changing patterns accurately isn't possible yet. They change immediately when the next pattern is selected. I am pretty sure this issue will be addressed with one of the coming software updates...
3. Nava (Roland TR 909 Clone) desoldering circuit board components
Today I got my new desoldering Station (ZD-915). There are a few defective components I need to replace. Regular desoldering with wire or pump can really be a pain in the ass, especially when the pads are so tiny and close together. After doing some research I found lot's of good comments on the ZD-915. Here you can see how well it's getting the job done...

"Here's my very first patch (filmed some time ago) with the fantastic Harmonaig and Troika from Instruo. Harmonaig is a quantizer and four voice chord generator with lots of options for custom scales, chord types, diatonic and modal harmony and modulation of inversion and chord spacing (drop chords). Troika is a saw core triple oscillator with on board mixing, so a perfect pairing for the Harmonaig."

Roland SH01A (Poly Mode)

"SH01A synthesiser in polyphonic mode"

Four note poly. Wish they were five or six. With anything but zero release times, the note stealing is more noticeable on four voice polys. For some reason that one voice, to five, is the tipping point to making it acceptable.
