WORNG Electronics - LRMSMSLR (stereo mid/side wizardry - make your mono FX stereo etc)

Published on Jun 28, 2018 DivKidVideo


Here's the very excellent, very underrated, very overlooked LRMSMSLR module from WORNG Electronics ... that's wrong, spelt wrong ...

The LRMSMSLR takes a stereo input (left and right) then sums them together to create a mid input and creates a signal that's a difference of the two to create a side signal. This is a common mastering technique often doing things such as removing low end from the side stereo elements to clean up a mix. The mid signal is a single mono channel and the side input is a single mono channel, it's the way their phases are flipped and interacting when brought back together to recreate a stereo image. It's great for taking that side output and using mono FX modules that when brought back into the module create stereo images with those FX on them from super wide to more subtle stereo images (with a dry unprocessed mid to keep things focused). It can also do some unity summing, CV difference / averaging. Lots of patches, lots to get through, skip through the index below if you can't watch all the way through.


00:00 Hello and patch previews of what’s to come.

01:03 Verbal feature walk through, what is mid/side? Patch suggestions and WORNG’s patch examples from the manual.

New Moog One Prototype PCB Boards & Patent?

These were spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child, via @synthjam

"Moog One Prototype PCB boards ... nice screen ... assuming Animoog will feature!, 3 smaller oled screens, 4 LFO’s, Ring mod #synthjam #synth #synthesizer #moogone #moog #snamm #summernamm #snamm18 #summernamm2018 📸 by C****C****** #analog #poly #ringmod #screen #animoog @moogsynthesizers"

And also a potentially relevant patent, spotted by user Klonfocius on GS:

Voltage Controlled Oscillator with Variable Core for Electronic Musical Instrument and Related Methods (pics captured below - note the oscillator is multi-timbral and note the waveforms)

"A signal generator for a musical instrument includes a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) comprising a control voltage input and a VCO output. The control voltage input controls a frequency of the VCO output. A controller is configured to control the voltage-controlled oscillator by inputting a sequence of analog control voltages from a plurality of preloaded control voltage inputs."

See this earlier post for the rumored specs.

Sunshine // Adagio in D Minor [Ambient Synth Cover]

Published on Jun 28, 2018 Ace Waters

"Finally watched Sunshine the other day, and when I got to this song my first thought was "Where have I heard this before?" I later found out, everywhere. This song has been in several films, commercials and trailers since it first came out for the OST for Sunshine. PS, If you haven't seen the movie Sunshine, you should. Its a bleak space thriller/science fiction film about blowing up the sun.

This song was right in my wheelhouse, so I just extended the builds and made it 9 minutes long. Enjoy!"

Devil Fish Roland TB-303 Bassline SN 034

via this auction

"Among the many modifications, the Devil Fish provides extended bass response and extended controls. It is very rarely offered for sale on eBay or anywhere else and the last one that was sold here went for $5,500.

For more information on the Devil Fish please consult the instructions manual on the Devil Fish website here.

For a quick summary the Devil Fish has AUDIO IN, so you can run anything you want through the Filter, Overdrive and Filter FM. It is VERY versatile sounding. You can make drums and percussion sounds because the Decay goes lower than a 303. The resonance goes higher than a 303. You can use the filter with Overdrive at "0" (no VCA volume) to make the filter ring and create all kinds of weird chirps and Sci-Fi sound FX that nothing else can mimic.

The sound is fatter than anything I've ever heard, especially with the Devil Fish Overdrive circuit.

It has been used by artists like Hardfloor, Daft Punk and very few others. Not many people have ever been able to afford one, or now - find one."

Mads The Synthesizer Addict's First Homemade Synthesizer

My First Homemade Synthesizer! Published on Jun 27, 2018

"This machine was created using Axoloti
Thanks to Johannes Taelman for making it so easy for me to get started making synthesizers!
This has helped me coping with my synthesizer addiction for a while...

At its core, its a 5 voice digital FM synth which has 3 modulators.
- Its being sequenced by the Arturia Keystep.
You can choose how much of each modulator can effect the carrier and you have an attack & decay knob for one of the modulators.
This makes for a nice FM sounding machine that is easily modified, but also lacking depth.

- It comes with a 4 stage envelope and has an infinity knob to basically sustain the notes forever.

- You can switch out the filter & resonance knobs to be controlling a bitcrusher effect OR the super far-out-granular effect you hear all over the video.

Where it ironically says "Instrument Selection" you have reverb and a knob that controls either reverb amount, decay or lowpass filtering on the reverb it self.

The front panel and the wooden box was laser cut and laser engraved. I used 3D software to design and measure the box and a vector software to create the layout of the front and back panel.
-I would not recommend using acrylic for the front panel, it bends...

Thanks for watching!"

Dradique V2 - Arduino Analog DCO and VCF test

Published on Jun 28, 2018 DrummingEvil

"Test of a prototype voice circuit for the new version of Dradique. I've decided to turn it into a digitally-controlled analog synthesizer, not unlike a Roland Juno, but of course with my own seasoning :)

The arduino generates a pulse in the frequency of the note being played, this is converted to an analog sawtooth, PWM and sub-octave square wave. These 3 waveforms can be mixed together and then to through the analog VCF. All CV's are generated by the Arduino as well."

Deru: Exploring microtonality on the Seaboard Block

Published on Jun 28, 2018 ROLI

"Benjamin Wynn, who produces under the name Deru, is an Emmy Award-winning composer for TV and film. He taught himself turntables, sampling, and hip hop production while he was a teenager in Chicago. His autodidactic mastery of electronic music eventually landed him a role as the composer for Avatar: The Last Airbender — followed many other commissions that he balances with his career as a producer and performer.

Microtonality — the deconstruction of acoustic sounds into particles of tonal purity — excites him and drives all of his recent projects. And if his hauntingly ambient tracks sound like the mood music for an space thriller, it’s only fitting: he’s exploring the outer edge of the universe of electronic expression."
