Moog Music Announcement: 25% Tariff on Chinese Goods Threatens our Jobs

via Moog Music:

"Dear Moog Family,

We need your help.

A U.S. tariff (import tax) on Chinese circuit boards and associated components is expected to take effect on July 6, 2018.

These tariffs will immediately and drastically increase the cost of building our instruments, and have the very real potential of forcing us to lay off workers and could (in a worst case scenario) require us to move some, if not all, of our manufacturing overseas.

There is one thing all of us can do together to try and stop this: Write to our elected officials.

We ask that you will support us by imploring our elected officials to recognize that these tariffs are seriously harmful to American businesses like Moog.

Step 1:
Copy the form letter below
Step 2:
Add recipient name to form letter from list of NC representatives
Step 3:
Legibly print and sign your name at bottom of form letter
Step 4:
Send to NC reps using the addresses and contact links below

We wholeheartedly thank you for your time and your support.

Your friends at Moog

Untitled #6 (Ambient Rings Feedback Patch)

Published on Jun 29, 2018 S. B. Arweiler

"This patch uses Mutable Instruments Rings as the main sound source. Rings output is split to the main mixer (Erica Black Stereo) and into Clouds. Clouds output goes into Mannequins Three Sisters filter. The All output of Three Sisters is patched into Morphagene, and Morphagene's output is then patched into Rings's input.

I recorded some lower register Rings sounds into a Morphagene splice previously which are used as an exciter for Rings with Morphagene's sound-on-sound turned fully clockwise. Turning sound-on-sound counter clockwise mixes the live (Clouds- and Thee-Sisters-processed) Rings sounds with the previously recorded lower register Rings sounds and creates some nice feedback textures.

Additional voices are provided by Mannequins Mangrove and Mutable Instruments Plaits, lots of modulation with Just Friends and Cycles running on Monome Ansible. Disting Mk3 provides the delay for the Mangrove voice.

Everything ist sequenced with Kria running on a second Monome Ansible."

Home-Brew Moog 904-b module - first test

Published on Jun 29, 2018 noddyspuncture

"Just testing the first of my 904-b H.P.F. builds - there was actually a problem with one of them - it wasn't passing audio but 'oscillating' with a low frequency 'thump' on the output. But changing a cap value fixed that. Strangely, the other one I built - exactly the same - didn't have that issue. Now both are working perfectly...! here I am triggering it with my 1125 S&H and also modulating it now and then with the 921's sawtooth from the aux output."

OB-6: Friday Jam Session (29/6/18)

Published on Jun 29, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Fun on the Obi. A literal case of hitting record, playing, then uploading!

Scotland is still an oven. And I'm still in hiding.

I don't know what's happened. In Scotland we say you can tell it's the summer as the rain is warmer. It hasn't rained for at least a week now. This is very disturbing. I think it may well be one of the harbingers of the apocalypse.

All best

Ezhi&Aka Terverb Modulated Triple Reverb

"The Ezhi&Aka Terverb has three digital reverb bricks inside of it as well as a large force sensing resistor on the front. It can produce fairly normal reverbs to chorusing modulated reverbs to distorted and wacky pitch shifting sounds. We ran an Arturia MiniBrute 2 as well as a Crank Sturgeon Perpetual Spring Device through it.

Roland System 8 V1.20 FM Oscillators

Published on Jun 29, 2018 zibbybone

"Roland just released a new upgrade to the System8 synthesizer adding 2 set of oscillator variants. Variation 3 adds six 2 operator choices and Variation 4 add six 5 operator choices.

To demonstrate these new features, I have an arpeggiator running while I select the different FM choices while also adjusting the AMP release time which not only affects the amplitude of the overall sound, but modulates the oscillator’s 'color'.

You are hearing a single oscillator (OSC2 is muted) and a little bit of the Sys8’s built-in reverb. I accidentally hit one of the program buttons and changed the patch just before getting to Var4, FM5 Type F. I didn't feel like re-shooting the video. My oligopolies."

1974-75 Roland Synthesizer Brochure Catalogs w/ Flexi-Disc Demo Record

via this auction

"This is a really cool lot of Roland print items and a flex demo for early synthesizers. Oldest is a SH-3A fold-out flyer with a 1974 date, Beckmen Musical Instruments stamp. It has some tears, wear and discoloration and a three-hole punch. One item is titled "Roland Synthesizer" from 1975 featuring the SH-1000 which folds out and includes a flexible demo record. This has a price written in pen on the front, and has a three hole punch which also went through the record (2 punched holes along one edge) but doesn't look like it entered the grooves. Next is a flyer for the SH-2000 which has the stamp from Beckmen Musical Instruments on one side, also dated 1975, one side is in color. There are three flyers, undated, for the EP-10, EP-30 and SH-1000, all with the Beckmen stamp and three hole punch.."

"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."
