Decay Study


Published on Aug 8, 2018 UncertainMusicCorps

"Using the analogue style delay in MI Warps/Parasites firmware to create a distressed kind of time lag accumulator. Drone Commander provides percussive effects. A simple wave fold lead from MI Braids feeds the delay. Shapeshifter provides a secondary reinforcing voice.

Informal NuEVI/SE-02 Testing - Mark Steiner


Published on Aug 8, 2018 Mark Steiner

"NuEVI and SE-02 informal testing and trying an attack smoothening approach.

I set the breath threashold above zero slightly... so notes are always on or gated, even when not blowing. This made the midi to the analog module even more smooth than always having the gate on, on the module side. At lease partly due to every note change getting faster to the module, long before the attack.

This setting doesn't work with more complex tones and synth types like physical modeling and others. It did also smoothen better the Logic synth ES2 plugin."

can I run OTHER instruments through the microKORG? YES


Published on Aug 8, 2018 Daniel Kastner

"We are overdue for a video on how to run and process other instruments through the microKORG synthesizer. I hope this helps you accomplish beautiful and crushing new tones. These textures and drones can hold their own for recording or add to your overall composition.

Signal chain:
Roland TR-505
Korg microKORG
Traynor TS-50B"

---
Side note: for skipping steps in the arpeggiator, set the release to 0 and go from there. My guess is you need to allow the release to end before the next note is triggered, otherwise the "gate" effectively remains open.

La Di Da Da - Live performance with Pocket Operators - Speak, Robot and Arcade


Published on Aug 8, 2018 Brian Leahy Art

"Live performance of my song 'La Di Da Da' with Pocket Operators!

I sampled my voice for this song with the Pocket Operator Speak and I discovered that using the 'Stutter Sweep' effect (#9) on that vocal sample creates this bizarre, awesome speaker-breaking bass swell. (Hear it in action at 1:45 in the video). I've never heard this effect sound this way before so it must be something particular about that vocal sample causing it to glitch out like that. In any case, happy accident. Love it!

"A Balearic sunset soundtrack in 10 minutes.

Iran-born producer Amirali started attracting attention back in 2012 with his lush, club-rooted soundscapes back in 2012 with his debut album for Crosstown Rebels, In Time.

His latest EP, Odyssey, sees him continue to develop his rich style of house music with the kind of sunny Balearic textures custom-made for Ibizan sunsets.

DeltaEffexxSpectralis


Published on Aug 8, 2018 Jörg Schaaf

"The Delta CEP A repeats just one note with a fat swarm oscillator sound. The output of the Delta is fed into the EFFEXX Multi FX module for some reverb. The RT-1701 effect setting adds a nice dark atmosphere to the sound. All other instruments are sequenced and played by the Spectralis 2 Synthesizer. BTW. - the Spectralis II drum sounds in this example are samples that I created with our Eurorack modules.

The DELTA CEP A is a new semimodular musicsynthesizer with monophonic and paraphonic playmodes, preset memories and snapshot automation. The DELTA CEP A is the perfect starting point into the EURORACK world and will become available soon as desktop standalone synthesizer and EURORACK module. The DELTA CEP A works just out of the box without any cable patching. If you are looking for a EURORACK FX unit or for POLYPHONY within your cabinet, you should also have a closer look as well. Are you curious about connectivity with your other gear? The DELTA CEP A has a MIDI interface and connects to every MIDI gear (MIDI sequencers, Keyboards etc.) The desktop version comes with standard 1/4 inch jack inputs and outputs.

The audio streams in that video are directly recorded from the main outs of the Delta. We have not used any compression or volume automation. What you hear is the original sound of the unit. If you have the impression, that it is not loud enough, please just adjust the volume;-)"

Planar 2! Introducing CV Recording and CV Input Modes


Published on Aug 8, 2018 Intellijel

Planar2 was first introduced at SUPERBOOTH18.

"With its smoothly responsive precision joystick, Planar2 facilitates hands-on vector control of two entirely independent sets of outputs (quadrants A-D, and axis X/Y), plus the ability to capture and playback your gestures. Recording your joystick movements enables the creation of organic and complex envelopes, wild and wobbly LFOs, or extended sonic evolutions. It mixes, morphs, routes and pans audio inputs; triggers gates; outputs control voltages and is itself, CV-controllable. Planar2 puts the ‘joy’ back in ‘joystick,’ and the ‘fun’ back in ‘function generator.’ Its multitasking and tactile interface makes it a flexible and unique control device, no matter what your musical genre.

Features
Vector control of two independent sets of outputs: one quadrant-based (outputs A, B, C, D) and one dual-axis based (outputs X and Y).
X/Y Controller: two-axis CV generator sends either unipolar (0V to +10V) or bipolar (-5V to +5V) signal out the X and Y outputs.
Four Quadrant Controller: With nothing connected to inputs A-D, outputs A-D become joystick-controlled individual unipolar (0V to +10V) control voltage sources.
Quad mixing & crossfading: Vector mixing and crossfading of four independent inputs (A, B, C, D) to either individual outputs or the mixed output.
Quad panning: connect a mono source to Input A and use the joystick to pan it to any of the four outputs. Connect a stereo signal to Inputs A and C and pan it forward and backward in quadraphonic space.
Quad routing: Send audio to Input A and patch outputs A-D to four different processors (i.e. VCF, wavefolder, delay, etc.), then use the joystick to dynamically route the signal through the different effects.
Gate Generator: Generate gates either manually (by pressing the Manual Gate button) or automatically whenever the joystick is in motion.
CV Gesture Recorder: Record joystick motions (including gates) to play back either as 1-shot complex function generators or as looped, LFO-like functions. Start time and length can sync to an external trigger, and punch-in/out recording is supported.
External CV Inputs: In addition to its built-in joystick, Planar2 has two CV inputs, which allows external CV control of quadrant outputs A-D and axis outputs X/Y. A mode switch alters how CV affects these outputs, allowing for some advanced automation techniques (such as circular and spinning motions) that would otherwise be difficult to automate."

Blue E-Pro Minisynth Extremely Rare Vintage Analog Synthesizer SN 0158


via this auction

"Up for sale is a (1) very rare E-Pro Minisynth synthesizer. It's been made in Holland in the 80s in the same period as Synton released their Syrinx synthesizer. Only 25 units are been made and this is one of them! It is a fully CEM based synthesizer and you hear that. It sounds very nice. The synth is been serviced three weeks ago and in good working condition. The service report is part of the sale.

Cosmetically it's in nice condition as well with only some minor scratches, some wear and tear, and the wooden side panels have little signs of use (see photos). Overall it's a great piece of history which deserves a good new home. It's a 220v version with European main plug installed and the serial number is: 0158."

"Includes free Jupiter 8! :o)

Hello classic synth fans. I’m auctioning my amazing Roland Jupiter 8 synth.

This is one of those rare combinations of a solid financial investment, and a really impressive musical instrument. These are already incredibly rare - only 2000 were ever made, and who knows how many of those are still alive today. They’re rare and can’t be imitated, so they’ll only become more valuable over time. But while it’s appreciating in value, you'll be playing one of the all time classics!

The Jupiter 8 has a truly unique sound, no digital imitation comes close to reproducing the sound or the experience of playing these beasts.

I’ll stop gushing about it now, I assume you already have an appreciation for Roland Corporation’s flagship synth.

Serial number 202242, 14-bit D/A converter.
Here’s what is included:

The original Operators’ Manual in mint condition. It even smells kind of nice...
A scanned PDF of the original Service Manual, 60 pages. This features full specifications, parts lists, every technical detail you could want.
A scanned PDF of the original factory patch sheets, 65 pages. This shows you the physical settings that each patch uses, a brief description of each sound, and suggested playing styles.
Kid Nepro’s 64 custom patch presets, as well as other patch presets in the form of WAV files and PDF instructions.
Here’s what is not included:

The onboard battery that holds the patch settings while the JP-8 is off, has gone flat. This is a common issue, and replacement batteries are readily available off the shelf. However replacing it does require a spot of soldering.
It pre-dates MIDI, and has not been retrofitted. I understand that’s a fairly simple exercise though.
This model doesn’t have the DCB module.
It’s missing one of its four rubber stopper feet underneath. I can’t explain that, to be honest.
Delivery cost will be in addition to the buyer’s bid, and will be at the buyer’s expense. The ad says free postage but that is incorrect. Jupiter 8’s are quite substantial, I’ll work with the successful bidder to organise shipping by whatever method is desired.
This is a rare investment opportunity, and it will definitely sell at this price. Don't let it slip through your fingers. I realise it's a lot of cash - just check in with any questions you might have, and I'll do my best to respond quickly.

Good luck!"

Arp Synth Lab Model 1509 VCA 2600 Self Enclosed Module


via this auction

"You can never have to many VCA’s is the most common mantra amongst modern modular synth enthusiasts.

The arp 2600 is one of the desired vintage semi modular synths of all time. Perhaps its biggest flaw that prevents it from going full blown modular is “not enough VCA’s”.

Well now you can solve that with this very rare synth module produced in 1975.

This module part of the rare the educational series modular version of the arp 2600. It is a single vca but in the context of the 2600 it is a very powerful. The module runs using one 9vdc rectangular batteries.

The module uses the same mini jack system as the arp 2600. It is basically ready to work as an expander to the 2600 or in conjunction with other modules."

"Roland System 500 being sequenced by the 182 module from the Roland System 100-M.

All the sound (except echo & reverb) are coming from the System 500.

Three voices:

1) 2 VCO bass line being sequenced from the 182.
2) High sequence is a third VCO not being sequenced but on hard sync with VCO1.
3) Phased White Noise percussion.

The System 500 555 module provides the master clock from the S&H Clock Out. This clocks the 100M 182 sequencer as well as both envelopes on the 540 module.

Playing the 182 sequencer live involves changing the sequence length as well as switching the 3V / 10V switch. The higher voltage really stretches the tuning for some sonic madness!

IK MULTIMEDIA UNO ANALOG SYNTH // HOW DOES IT SOUND?


Published on Aug 8, 2018 soundseasy

"In this Video we check out the new lightweight analog monosynth UNO from Ik Multimedia. This has got to be one of the cheapest truely analog synths on the market and it sounds great.

Uno does have an on board delay but no reverb. So we sent it directly into the Meris Mercury 7 reverb. Drum are all from the Elektron Digitakt.

What I found was the synth section sounded great. Nice fat analog Waveforms and two oscillators. It is only Monophonic though. It has a simple single LFO and basic envelopes. All in all you can get ripping bass and lead sounds which is what I expect most people will use it for.

Is it worth the $$$ yes, for sure."

Joranalogue Filter 8 "the cutting edge in analogue VCF design"


Published on Aug 8, 2018 DivKidVideo

"TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW - Here's the new Filter 8 from Joranalogue. It's a VCA based filter topology similar to but not exactly an OTA design. It features a unique resonance circuit and (according to Joranalogue) is "the cutting edge in analogue VCF design". Now I can't talk specifics about the circuit but feature wise it certainly packs in a massive punch. 8 filter outputs including 1, 2, 3 and 4 pole low pass filters, a 1 pole high pass, unique band boost and notch, phase shifted output and 4 pole band pass. There's gain compensation to even out each output under self oscillation, we can freeze and hold the core of the module to effectively silence and halt the output or freeze (like a sample/track and hold) when it's producing it's own CV signals. The outputs turn to 8 phase shifted sine waves that tracks great as a multi phase oscillator or LFO and patching feedback means we can create a range of saw like waves with various exp. lin. and log. curves. We can drive the filter with the second input, or again with feedback, exponential and linear FM means we can get gorgeous rich formant throaty vocal tones under audio rate modulation or musical harmonious FM tones when using it as an oscillator. There's even more so I'll let the video do the talking.

TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS

00:00 hello, introduction and patch previews of what's to come

01:17 Feature walkthrough, going through bits of the manual, all the ins outs and controls.

03:26 Filter sweeps, 1, 2, 3 and 4 pole low pass, high pass, band boost and notch, phase shifted out and the band pass. Various resonances and output comparisons.

06:35 Using dual inputs to drive the filter

7:11 Dual inputs driving the filters. Sweeping through the responses.

08:40 Animating the filter. Using envelopes, sequences and gate patterns to modulate 1v/oct, exponential FM and resonance depth.

10:42 Filter rich layered and animated detuned sounds. This also looks at building up dynamic patterns and filter modulation.

13:41 Audio rate modulation of cut off and audio rate modulation of 'hold' for a sample and hold like "freeze". Similar to sync and downsampling FX.

16:28 Driving the filter with feedback. Creating clipping, saturation and non linear responses. At point digital-like phase modulation / phase distortion overtones appear.

20:09 Phase shifter! Using the phase shifted output like a phase shifter effect. There's also audio rate resonance depth modulation in this patch.

21:56 A short acid break. Patching up some 3 pole 18dB per octave low pass patches for a little bit of an acidic filter pattern.

22:48 Filter Pings. Using the ping input to excite the filter core. Create melodic lines, deep bass, percussion and linear FM tones.

25:42 8 phase oscillator. Using the oscillating filter as a sine oscillator. Glassy and harmonious FM tones under modulation.

27:20 Patching feedback over the oscillating sine to create new wave shapes. You can make a near perfect saw wave as well as other exponential and logarithmic ramp shapes as well as some odd comb like shapes.

28:19 8 phase voltage controlled LFO. Using multiple phases to create cascading modulation across a wider patch. As above with audio we look at feedback to make new LFO shapes too.

30:22 Slew limiting. As the filter works at sub audio rates we can use it slew a signal. Here we add glide by slewing a pitch sequence. We also add resonance for a way to inject wobble and vibrato into the pattern.

32:39 FM oscillator tones - a little musical break. We look at gated the hold on and off while this operates as an oscillator. This creates little clicky rhythms and breaks in the sequences we're using.

33:52 Resonating envelopes - using envelopes to excite the near oscillating core of the filter to create wobbles within the envelopes shape. We can also superimpose audio rate tones or LFOs into the envelopes too."

There are other designs there as well.

New JX-3P Plugout for System-8 Ver. 1.30 - PREVIEW!

Published on Aug 8, 2018 gattobus

"I've always loved the sharpness of the JX-3P DCOs and, at the same time, the smoothness of its filter. Add the BBD Chorus and you can get one of the warmest and soft pad sounds ever heard.
I love it!!!"


via Roland

"The Summer of SYSTEM-8 is heating up with the recently added v.1.20 FM OSC and New Filters. But we haven’t stopped yet – here comes v.1.30!

The long-awaited third polyphonic PLUG-OUT for SYSTEM-8 is here... the JX-3P Programmable Preset Polyphonic Synthesizer. Like the JUNO-106, The JX-3P has a classic Roland DCO polyphonic architecture, reimagined with the newest ACB technology. No longer will the JX-3P be a lost sound of the past – take the sound forward to a new generation with the powerful, hands-on hardware of the SYSTEM-8."

I wonder if the final version will be squishy. Note the "see you 9/9" at the end. Looks like an RD-909 TR-909 clone is coming.

So.. Why not the BR-808? That would be beer form The Origin Workshop!
