Looking for Robyn

Published on Aug 15, 2018 Todd Barton

"Looking For Robyn is a meditation by Todd Barton based on the song, Ah, Robyn by William Cornysh (1465-1523). The piece was recorded and performed by Laurie Monahan, Sherril Kannasto and Beverly Simmions in 1973. I'm using the MakeNoise Morphagene module to reinterpret this lovely song."

ESK - Tasty Chips GR 1 Synth Sounds 2

Published on Aug 15, 2018 Metunar

"ESK - Tasty Chips GR-1 Synth Sounds 2

Tasty Chips Electronics GR-1 Granular Synthesizer Demo of my presets/patches/performance.
You can get this sounds 'MetunarSynthSounds' on the Tasty Chips website as download.

Audio is directly recorded from the GR-1 without external effects.

On all sounds the "Resample Anti-aliasing" is deactivated to get a more row digital sound.
The modulation deep of the 2 LFOs is normally set on zero. I use them like a kind of modulationwheels for extra modulation.
With the modulationwheel you can open the filter on many patches.
On the last sound i play with the internal delay which is good for looping effects."

"This Synergy II+ comes with 41 Kaypro floppy discs. It has the crucial Kaypro CP/M boot disc (two copies, of course — without the boot disc, the Kaypro won’t work). There’s also a disc of the SYNHCS 3.18 program disc two copies, and Synergy Voice Library discs L1 through L13, Synergy Voice Cart discs 1 through 6, and Wendy Carlos voice banks 1, 2,3 ,4 and 20 Synergy Voice Library discs with custom voices.

You also get a stack of documentation showing how to use the Synergy II+, including the original Synergy I manual, the addendum covering the Synergy II+, and a user’s guide to the SYNHCS.

A CP/M manual covering issues like the syntax for PIP. On CP/M, you use PIP.COM to copy programs from one floppy disk to another. CP/M is different from DOS — you can’t use the COPY command the same way you can on DOS. You use SYSGEN to create a bootable Kaypro floppy disc, for example. The CP/M manual shows you how to do all this.

Schematic circuit diagrams for the guts of the Synergy II+ in case you ever need them. I never have, but what the heck. You might as well get everything.

A quick-start cheat sheet I’ve written to get you up and running. This shows you how to get the Kaypro 2 and the Synergy II+ up and running together and running SYNHCS quickly, so you can start making music."

WMD Geiger Counter PRO vs. Sequential Circuits TOM

Published on Aug 15, 2018 WMDevices

"The latest in our experiments of stacking up drum machines and guitar pedals up against each other, the Geiger Counter PRO absolutely annihilates the classic 80's drum box, the Sequential Circuits TOM.

In this video, we experiment for about ten minutes with running the TOM drum machine, an 80's unit based on PCM samples of real drums. The TOM is a stripped down version of the classic, Sequential Circuits Drum TRAX machine and features all of the same sounds, with only a stereo output instead of individual outs.

Instead of using eurorack modules for modulation over the GCP's parameters, we have a WMD Protostar in the chain as well. We are mainly using the Protostar as a modulation source for the GCP, sending the internal LFO and Envelope signals to the assignable CV inputs. However, there are times when we also engage the filter on the Protostar which can drastically effect the sound of the Geiger PRO when the chain is Protostar into the Geiger Counter PRO."

MOORE & RACHELS ★ Ambient ★ Dave Smith Evolver ★ Strymon Big Sky ★ Eventide Pitchfactor

Published on Aug 15, 2018 Jay Frederick

"I found a box of tapes I made of class lectures way back in the 90s when I was a philosophy student. They are from a History of Philosophy class that was taught by the late great Professor James Rachels. Rachels was a famous philosopher in his own right and for each meeting of this class, he lectured on a different key figure in the history of philosophy. This piece has excerpts from his lecture on the ideas of G.E. Moore. By coincidence, the talk relates to thoughts on necessary and contingent identity by way of analogy to the Morning Star. I recently posted another piece about about that same topic. As always, thanks for listening.

All sounds and effects recorded directly into Protools with minimal compression and EQ."

Behringer Neutron - Krell patch

Published on Aug 15, 2018 Luc Debeck

"I have the Neutron for a couple of weeks now and tried to make a Krell, a self generating patch. Twisting and turning the knobs sounds everytime different. I use the internal delay to modulate and the only used the Strymon Blue Sky for reverb.
No external midi was connected, no sequencer
Here is the connections I made:
S&H to MULT, DELAY TIME and LFO SHAPE (stacked together)
MULT to OSC1+2
By mistake I connected to inputs together and was supposed not to, but anyway the Krell works :)"

CRUMAR PERFORMER: Noise Reduction Mod and Sustain Mod

Published on Aug 15, 2018 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2018

Today I am looking at a friend's Crumar Performer.
We noticed a considerable hiss noise when activating the String sections.
The hiss goes away when using only Brass.
I investigate where the noise is coming from, and what's to be done about it.
I discover a simple way to boost the strings signal without affecting the noise floor.

Another strange deal, by design, the brass button defeats the strings sustain.
I explore the sustain mod to restore the strings decay while using brass."

CYRK - Against The Clock

Published on Aug 15, 2018 FACTmagazine

"Sierra Sam and Pascal Hetzel may be based in Berlin, but their music as CYRK owes more to the sound of Detroit house and techno than contemporary German club music.

After years spent touring the world as a live act, the pair released their first productions in 2016 on their own self-titled label. Since then, they've released several records on labels including HIKE Recordings and, most recently, Rawax.

We visited their Berlin studio to see what they could do in 10 minutes with their massive collection of Eurorack modules, boutique synths and analog gear. The result? A big room techno beat that didn't disappoint."
