Unknown Physics by Immortal Beings

A new release from supporting MATRIXSYNTH Member,
Artificial Noise aka Immortal Beings

"Composed and recorded in the Summer of 2018 on the modular NAS System (Noisy Artificial Synthesis) with significant use of the Cimmerian Caves V2 and a dash of Valhalla Vintage Verb.


Some additional info via Immortal Beings:

"The album was done entirely on my own DIY modular synth (dubbed the NAS System) with heavy use of the Cimmerian Caves V2. Recorded and mixed in Reaper with a dash of Valhalla Vintage Verb. Some sequencing done the Beatstep Pro, some done on my Keystep.

I made the modular synthesizer entirely from schematics sourced from the web (Moog, Oberheim, Serge and of course MFOS) and soldered them onto strip-boards. Purposely designed with 'old school' modular synths in mind."

"My first session with this QUANTUM and its huge potential just tweaking many parameters directly by their dedicated knobs.
There is no FM machine in WALDORF QUANTUM, unfortunately.
The analog modelled oscillators cannot work as modulation sources so had to engage high pitched LFOs for that purpose
in order to a scent of FM. WALDORF should absolutely implement proper FM modulation to increase the synth's potential."

QUANTUM, unfortunately. The analog modelled oscillators cannot work as modulation sources so I had to engage high pitched LFOs for that purpose in order to get a scent of FM. WALDORF
should absolutely implement proper FM modulation to increase the synth's potential. Done with the analog filters.
This is, by request, the FM SCENT patch laying without the internal FX unit. The performance is a bit different though: no drone in the end but some deep percussive arpeggio."

First experiments with folktek matter ii

Published on Aug 10, 2018 Sir Folktek

Pics previously posted here.

"Matter ii is a deep module so it difficult to simply lay it out the one would an osc for example. It's a bit experimental anda bit out of the box. For those who understand the original Matter, it may gel. These are the first experiments and this is one approach; yours will be different no doubt. Matter ii is for making beats, for demolishing sound, for drone and noise and yet all of that is difficult to convey due to its depth. It's about finding your own sound.

Where the original utilized dupont, matter ii uses a single point pin matrix. This pin matrix acts as the original Matter alongside (folktek) Resist but there is now cv control over resist. Add the highly addictive vactrol over the final output and Matter ii is a different beast entirely while still maintaining the original analog sonic characteristics of Matter.

For these recordings, varigate 4 was used for the main gates/triggers and a variety of envelopes were employed.
(folktek) Quiet is HUGE when using matter, as well as (folktek) Gait and (folktek) Root - these are very much suggested modules.

Note that at 10:03 a simple waveform from a prototype is utilized to send into Matter ii to show the shaping characteristics. Likewise at 14:42 the same osc is introduced to the path and the drone becomes the processor.
Aside from a couple instances of utilizing folktek matter for reverb and delay (which you should be able to see), these are straight recording without any processing."

“We’ll fix it in post”

“We’ll fix it in post” from CatManDeux on Vimeo.

"Previously malformed vid of a sequencing exercise on the MiniRig TeaTray. (I think post production took more than 10 times longer than the vid.)

Of note, the 70CDR has just enough processing power to run SpaceHole (Eventide Blackhole emulation) and Shimmer Reverb (Strymon BlueSky emulation) simultaneously. However it can only put them in series, which in some cases can create a mess. I’ve asked Zoom to consider allowing the inputs to be used for parallel effects. Fingers crossed.

Of further note, even though these effects are not described as 'stereo' in the Zoom MS70CDR manual, they most certainly do create a stereo field. For folks that post to Instagram with an iPhone, be aware that depending upon how they sum the audio for mono, may create dullness."

Ace Tone PS-1000 Vintage Analog Mono Synth w/ Case

via this auction

"Extremely Rare Ace Tone PS-1000 vintage analog monophonic synthesizer.

Ace Tone / Ace Electronics Industries was the predecessor to Roland, and it is said that PS-1000 monosynth was designed by the founder of Roland almost simultaneously to when Roland released the popular SH-3A.

The unit appears to be working fine, all the sliders and keys and knobs and switches working as they should.

Cosmetically the unit is in very nice condition considering its 40+ year age as you can see. There are some wear and minor marks here and there, but nothing major. I'm including plenty of pictures so you can see exactly how it looks."

AJH Synth Wave Swarm *Turn 1 VCO into 12 or your new "MAKE IT BIGGER" generator*

Published on Aug 10, 2018 DivKidVideo

"TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW - Here's the new Wave Swarm from AJH Synth. It's a dual 6 stage wave animator that can function as two independent (can do stereo) multi stage waveform animators or one big 12 stage animator. The animation is based on creating shifting versions of the input wave which when stacked with the dry sound or when stacking several stages sounds like mixing several detuned oscillators together. You can play around with each stage to emphasise or minimise the tremolo like sounds from the phase cancellations as the sounds modulate against each other. Typical applications would be turning a saw wave into a super saw but it will also do gorgeous subtle shifts in tone and harmonics with softer sines and triangles too. It will create thicker and almost glitchy effects with already modulating wavetables and complex tones while continuing to track the input wave. Determined to bend and push it beyond the basics I used it as a two distortion device and a weird wonky clock generator too.


00:00 Hello and previews of what's to come

00:56 Feature run down

01:31 Sound demo - triangle waves - looking at turning triangles to sines and then soft clipping them alongside the 6 stage animation

02:50 Sound demo - saw waves - making super saws! 6 stage and 12 stage animation

04:16 Stereo sources - two oscillators tuned a fifth a part animated independently one in each channel of the Wave Swarm. Looking at independent processing down stream for a wide stereo sound too.

05:53 Animating already complex waves - using the new V-Shape to twist and distort/fold a sine wave into something already complex and moving then letting the Wave Swarm further animate that for unison modulated 'stacks' of the sound. There's also some clipping to round off the wave.

08:14 Animating morphing wavetables - a second patch with more complex already modulating/morphing inputs. We also get into dual layer processing with the two outs here to create more simple pulses then swells of big detuned sound for more interesting patching from a single source.

12:42 Trying to animate drum sounds - also using the clipping stages as a dual (in series) distortion to drive the low end in some drum beats.

14:15 Wave Swarm - the new hot clock module! Ok ... maybe not, but while pushing and pulling this thing around as I often do before filming I managed to get one of the internal LFOs from the animation stages to feedback and 'thump/click' through the output. I used this as an audible percussion source as well as a clock source for clock dividers/multipliers and then made a beat from it. Adding other animation stages in creates a wonky clock that seems to trip over itself. This great as the modules down stream "trip up" and go a bit chaotic.

16:20 Stereo Wave Swarm animation, AB mono additional shaping and a lovely musical drone bathed in Finaliser R-EQ verb."
