Midsummer Meditation I

Published on Jul 22, 2018 Sacred Synthesis

"I composed this piece in three days, but it took at least a month of practicing before I could record it. The difficulty is that it requires a complete change of body position on the organ bench in the middle of the piece, just before the bass comes in. It's not hard to play, but it's a challenge while you're moving around!

The main patch comes from the Poly Evolver. I've named it "CP 70 Piano," and I hope it will be obvious why. It's wonderful for solo playing, but the upper third of the keyboard range has such digital aliasing that it's mostly unusable. The triangle-like and slow PWM patches both come from Prophet '08s.

The only change in equipment in this piece is that I've used a Prophet '08 Module for the bass, rather than the usual Evolver Desktop. The parameter-rich P'08 panel is so much easier to use than the Evolver's matrix, and this is especially important for a somewhat elaborate patch, such as the one I've used in this piece. The filter is set to slowly open and close by means of an LFO.

Leviathan :: Sputnik Modular Drone Patch

Published on Jul 22, 2018 Mike Thomas

"A drone patch heavily featuring the Sputnik Four-Tap Delay/Dual Crossfader module (with no crossfading :-)).

Patch Notes

Main Sound
Primary sound source is the Sputnik Dual Oscillator in AM & FM mode, receiving v/oct from Sputnik 5-Step Voltage Source. Timbre and Harmonics are being modulated by separate channels of the Sputnik Quad Function & Trigger Source. Modulation index is modulated by another channel of 5-Step Voltage Source.

Did I mention this is an all-sputnik patch? Well, it is, except for the reverb, which is a 2hp Verb.

The Final output of the DO is sent to Quad VCF/VCA in "Combo" (LPG) mode.

Delay Patching
Th output of the QVV is sent to input channel #1 of the Sputnik Four-Tap Delay/Cross-fader and multed to a channel of the 6-channel MIxer. Each of the delay taps is sent to a different channel of the mixer, with stereo panning applied. Two of them are on the CV-pannable channels, and these are modulated by the West Coast Random Source Fluctuating Random Voltage channels.

The secondary output of the 1/2t tap is patched into the Valve Multiplier (VCA) as the input source, with the Waveshape output of one of the Sputnik single oscillators as the modulator, The resultant two-quadrant multiplier output is sent to another QVV channel in filter mode and back into input #2 of the Delay. The QVV filter is modulated by another channel of the QFTS.

The secondary output of the 1t tap is fed back into the #3 input of the Delay.

The square output of the single oscillator above is sent into another channel of the Valve Multiplier, with another channel of the 5SVS modulating it.

Bass is the Waveshape output of a second Sputnik Oscillator with v/oct from the final channel of the 5SVS, fed through the WCRS Integrator (portamento/slew) circuit.

Production Notes
L/R modular-level signals from the Sputnik 6-channel Stereo Mixer were multed and sent to a) 1U Headphone Jack, and 2) Intellijel 1U I/O module, which send signal to the case-mounted 1/4" jacks. Signal was routed on to the Sony PCMD50 digital recorder.

Star Drive - Presets for Novation Peak

Published on Jul 22, 2018 AiynZahevSounds

"Star Drive is a 64 preset bank for the Novation Peak. The Peak is a true hybrid synth, it's wavetables allow for crystal clear and otherworldly wavetable sounds, while the analog filters and distortion are the real deal for dirt and aggression.

The sounds make use of this huge variation on the Peak. The pads for example range from cold digital ice worlds to vintage ensemble pads, and JP8000 like supersaws.

Basses on tap range from focused and punchy PWM to walls of unison. Leads are melodic techno and trance inspired and there's odd sounds too making use of random per-step modulation.

Patches make use of Velocity, careful FX programming and Modwheel assignments.

"The Behringer Model D just arrived here. It is the clone of the classic Minimoog! This video shows my second test with it, exploring a patch using 3 oscillators and working with different filter settings. The sequence is created by the Arturia Keystep and the drums sounds are from the Novation Circuit."

Dave Smith Instruments Evolver Synth Module SN 5197

via this auction

"The Evolver’s unique tonality comes from the synergy of its two analog oscillators and two digital oscillators (which feature the waves from the legendary Prophet VS). Classic Curtis analog low-pass filters and real analog VCAs add warmth and girth to the analog section while the digital high-pass filter, tuned feedback, and digital distortion provide sizzle and grit. But what really sets the Evolver apart is the way in which the analog and digital sides of its personality mesh—in a true stereo signal path. Massive doesn’t even begin to describe the sound of the Evolver.

Imagine being able to move effortlessly from thick analog smoothness to crisp digital edge—or anywhere in between—and you begin to get the picture. The LFOs, step sequencer, and three separate delays can all be synced for complex, evolving, rhythmic, time-based effects in true stereo.

It’s a sound designer’s dream that can go from ultra creamy to ultra aggressive with the turn of a knob. If you need convincing, just listen to the demos.

Out of Africa theme (John Barry) - Korg Radias

Published on Jul 21, 2018 MIDERA

"This track was made as a tribute to my father who passed away exactly 8 years ago (as of this publication date [Jul 21]) from cancer.

8 years ago - I saw his final breath. Only a week earlier we were playing Scrabble and going to a casino. A week before that he and I beat Conan the Barbarian on Atari (I needed him to get closure - and see the ending of that ridiculously difficult game).

In regards to the music - this is John Barry's theme to Out of Africa (a movie that I've never seen). We used to go on trips when I was younger. My parents would drive for hours and days... we would listen to 'travel music' which included things like Bananarama, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and, yes, the Out of Africa soundtrack. My siblings and I would groan listening to this travel music.

My dad loved this song. The whole soundtrack played on repeat at his wake. A few years ago, I thought I could handle listening to the original song. I was wrong. I would break down and cry.

A few weeks ago as I was about to head out to work, this song came on in a playlist. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. I couldn't move, couldn't turn off the music. I just stood there and thought about my dad and how much I wish I could talk with him again. Sometimes I do see him of course, when I'm sleeping. I can hear him so vividly. I can see him so clearly. I'm always so shocked that he's alive, that he beat cancer. Sometimes he's just fine. Sometimes he's in extreme pain... but it always ends the same way. I wake up and remember that he's not here.

So here is my tribute to him, 8 years later."

How a recording-studio mishap shaped '80s music

Published on Aug 18, 2017 Vox

Gear talk comes in at 3:56 with the AMS RMX16 reverb rack unit, followed by the Linn LM1. Interesting bit of music history. LM1 gets the post.

"Warning: This is an unapologetic ode to gated reverb drums

Here's a Spotify playlist of some of the best gated reverb songs:

Over the past few years a general nostalgia for the 1980s has infiltrated music, film, and television. I deeply love those gated reverb drums of the '80s - you know that punchy percussive sound popularized by Phil Collins and Prince? So for my second episode of Vox Pop’s Earworm I spoke with two Berklee College of Music professors, Susan Rogers and Prince Charles Alexander, to figure out just how that sound came to be, what makes it so damn punchy, and why it’s back.

Correction: At 2:01, a previous version of the video mistakenly said the noise gate only lets frequencies above a certain threshold pass through. We should’ve said “amplitudes” instead of “frequencies.” The error has been rectified.

At 3:45 we noted that plate reverb boxes were made using aluminum. In fact, they were usually made of steel."

"Metropolis, Pressure Points + Brains, 2x Turing Machine, 2x Q960, Moon Modular M563 Trigger Sequencer and a Q119 step sequencer are used to conduct a looping round of notes and key changes to various euro and 5U modules, (mainly Rings, a Modcan 901 VCO suite and several Q106 VCO's).
A pair of the STG Soundlabs Envelope Generators and Sidecars are used with a Mega Ohm Audio CdS for the percussive elements.
Longer gate timings for the background sequences from the STG Voltage Mini Stores and Trigger Mini Stores are stretched out by the use of a triple switch from and a pair of (62 Sequential Switches.
The phase shifted noise is from the Jurgen Haible Tau Pipe Phaser.
The noise wash and background discordant chord pads which begins and ends the piece are a recording of Mutable Instruments Rings into the Makenoise Morphagene. The Morphagene is run into a Z-DSP with Halls of Valhalla ensemble chorus and a Clouds in feedback loop. Various LFO's are handling the feedback and mix between these elements.
Additional effects include Electro Harmonix Canyon in tape delay mode, two Behringer DD400 delays, a Modcan 73B dual delay and a Synthetic Sound Labs 1210 Digital Delay.
All recorded in a single take to Cubase and video edited in Final Cut Pro."
