New Audio Damage Quanta Granular Synthesizer

Uploaded on Jun 21, 2018 Audio Damage, Inc.

"Quanta is a ten-voice true-stereo hybrid subtractive/granular synthesizer with dual filters, four FEG (flexible EG, essentially a 99-stage totally arbitrary breakpoint generator), two FLFO (arbitrary waveshape LFO), two multi-mode filters, a virtual analog oscillator, full modulation matrix, and over 120 factory presets from yours truly [Chris Randall], Richard Devine, Joseph Fraioli, Chris Carter, and Marcus Fisher."

The iOS version will be along in approximately 2 weeks.

via Audio Damage:


Quanta is a full-featured ten-voice true stereo granular synthesizer, with up to a hundred 1000ms grains per voice, and full control over the grain state, with direct randomization and modulation of most parameters. Drag-and-drop a sample (WAV, AIFF, Ogg, or FLAC) on to the window and go to work.

With two multi-mode filters (with LP, HP, BP and notch in 2-pole and 4-pole topologies), and a "sidecar" virtual-analog oscillator and noise generator that can be used in addition to, or injected into, the grain engine, Quanta is a fully capable subtractive synth in its own right, and will work as a granular or subtractive (or both) synth without any sample at all.

Quanta has mod coming out its ears. First up are four of our new FEGs (Flexible Envelope Generator), a 99-point looping function generator with optional host tempo sync. Then add two arbitrary-waveshape LFOs, a multi-source sample-and-hold module, and fully user-controllable MIDI assignments, with nearly every control on the panel as a destination.

Quanta is customizable to your taste and playing style. With full MPE support, it can take advantage of the extended control set of your Linnstrument, Seaboard, Soundplane, Continuum, or other MPE controller, and support for TUN files lets you use tuning tables. The resizable Hi-DPI GUI lets you adjust the size to match your visual needs, and the cross-platform preset mechanism lets you share your creations with you.

"am not a keyboard player. i just recorded some of my first patches with the synth that sounds amazing and wanted to have some friends listen. there is often a Delay engaged, analog. the patches are mixed digital and analog, but most analog. am not playing much chords mostly single notes. A great Synthesizer ( i know it could look better and have a couple of more A-voises) :) hope it has something for you.. Peace!"

TRON: Arpeggio Sequencing/Programming

Published on Jun 27, 2018 Kris Lennox

"The MB, whilst having the usual arpeggio sequencing patterns (i.e. up, down, up/down, random etc), can also be programmed. Very handy. And the included work ('The Son of Flynn' from the Tron Legacy soundtrack) is a great piece to demonstrate.

The arpeggiator - in this mode - will arpeggiate any 4-note chord in the manner you program it. The blue lights illustrate the steps.

Reading vertically from low-high: the bottom 4 squares represent notes 1-4 in octave 1, the next 4 up represent octave 2 etc. And any step can be deactivated - simply push the red button to switch that step on/off.

Very visual, very easy to program. And being all there in front of you, editing individual steps etc is easy.

The other day I was having a look at a JD-XA, and was talking through it with the Roland rep. Stunning machine, but one of the potential issues seems to be when you deactivate a step, reactivating it resets the pitch. With the MB, if you deactivate a step then reactivate it, the programmed pitch is maintained.

However, in Roland's defense, the rep I was talking to was quite new on the job. I'll need to research it more, as the JD-XA is quite the powerhouse - and massively under-rated.

Back on track - I wasn't too fussed RE exactly replicating the tone of the original track, as the purpose of the vid is to show the arpeggiator outwith its standard patterns.

01-Analogue Solutions Treadstone- Song Demonstration 1

Published on Jun 27, 2018 AutomaticGainsay

"Here is a musical example of the sound of the Analogue Solutions Treadstone. All of the synth sounds were created with the Treadstone, and are presented without effect or equalization. The drums and percussion sounds were created and sequenced on a Korg Triton LE.

The Treadstone is a shockingly powerful synthesizer for its size, and is also the smallest modern synthesizer with its level of vintage analog tone.

TRAVELER Doppler Modelling & Granular Sample Player VST/AU/AAX Plugin

Published on Jun 25, 2018 TonsturmChannel

"TRAVELER precisely models the acoustic phenomenon of the Doppler effect, with a powerful and intuitive graphical path editor to determine a sound's virtual movement. A common example of Doppler shift is the change of pitch heard when a vehicle sounding a horn approaches and recedes from an observer.

TRAVELER features a fully fledged 2D path editor allowing you to precisely shape the motion path of the sound source. Further it is possible to freely position the listener in relation to the path.
TRAVELER offers intuitive control over the speed of the sound source, path length and the overall doppler path duration.

TRAVELER also comes with an onboard loop and granular sample player. The granular sample player allows synchronized playback to the doppler path. This makes it possible to playback the desired sound effect at different durations while remaining everything in perfect sync.

After being processed by the doppler effect engine TRAVELER features a powerful post effects section. Both, the parameters of the post effect engine and the parameters of the granular sample player, can modulated by the 4 individual multisegment LFO´s that run in sync with the Doppler path duration.
The Manual mode allows you to manually perform the powerful TRAVELER engine in realtime."

"Items are in pristine condition. Included is the Nuke controller, Windows discs, and the manual. Note this is not a MIDI controller and it will not work with any other software. Also a regular MIDI controller won't work with the Neuron so you need the Nuke to really unlock the full power of the Neuron. It makes completely original and amazing sounds."

Audiokit Synth One Dj Puzzle Soundset Preview

Published on Jun 26, 2018 iPadLoops

"Hey everyone I was so stoked when Matthew Fetcher asked me to create some presets for the world's first FREE open source synthesizer for iPad. This is just another cutting edge one of it's kind projects that I've been involved in over the past two decades and I'm honored to be a small part of it. This video demonstrates what I did with some of my own sounds using nothing but Synth One and my DAW. I recorded the midi tracks as audio and printed them direct from my iTrack Dock and Synth one. I did not process these sounds other than EQ the tracks. All of the sounds you hear are from my preset kit in Synth One including the drums. Thank you for watching.

I created the visuals using a cool visualizer app called Staella on my iPad. You can get Staella from the appstore for free here

Synth One will be available June 28th maybe sooner if Apple approves it without any hiccups."

Hello Deluge: first impressions with the Synthstrom Deluge

Published on Jun 27, 2018 Olivier Ozoux

"There's a new all-in-one sequencer/synthesizer/sampler on the grass, and it's the Synthstrom Audible Deluge.

I've had the Elektron Digitakt in my setup for almost a year, but while I love the sound engine and used it as the main drum machine, I couldn't really get along with it as "the one box" I could take with me somewhere and work on music. the lack of a internal polyphonic sequencer and the limited number of voices made it really hard for me to use it by itself, and I'll admit that the Squarp Pyramid spoiled me as a full featured hardware sequencer.

Enter the Deluge. I love how the sequencer felt confortable right away, the sampling features are fantastic, and the built in synth engines seems flexible enough to be used as that magical "one box" while I'm out and about, and still be used as the Digitakt replacement in the studio."
