Poly Evolver Keyboard: HPF Pad

Published on Sep 5, 2018 Sacred Synthesis

"This improvisation is a quick demonstration of a Poly Evolver Keyboard pad in which the high pass filter is modulated by the third envelope. The low pass filter is also modulated by an envelope, while the VCA attack opens solely, giving it the classic sound.

The house belonged to American transcendentalist philosopher/ writer Ralph Waldo Emerson in Concord, Massachusetts.

XOR NerdSeq DAY 1 Modular Synth Jam Live Recording

Published on Sep 5, 2018 SonicVoltage


"My first day/track with the XOR Electronics NerdSeq Sequencer. Eurorack Modular CV Gate Sequencer. Patch Description in the Video.

A Modular Synth Jam - Best way to learn a new sequencer is to write tracks while discovering its features. This gives me a good idea of how quick the NerdSeq is to learn and how quickly I can master the user interface.

The XOR NerdSeq is actually a bit more than a 6 Traks sequencer.
- Six tracks of CV+Trigger+Mod (1 Trigger and 2 CVs per track)
- Plus Tracks 7 and 8 dedicated to sequence samples. Actually track 7 and 8 each has two sequencing tracks, this means you can sequence/play 4 samples at the time. So it sort of is a 10 Track sequencer although each set of dual sample tracks is mixed into one output. Output 7 and 8

This is only my first experiment with the XOR NerdSeq, expect a full in depth review from me ASAP, probably over a few videos so we can cover all its features in some detail.

Patch descirption for each voice used in this live track is in the video.
The drum samples are short samples that come preloaded in the SD Card. So all percussive sounds are NerdSeq Card samples, played and sequenced through the NerdSeq.

An interesting side note is SN 001393 has been featured in two other systems. I've seen Roland used the same serial numbers for some of their other synths including I believe the TB-303 & SH-101 (I forget though). I still don't understand why they would do this. The point of a serial number is usually to be a unique identifier for a piece of gear covered under warrantee.

Vintage Lyricon w/ Oberheim SEM SN 0207

via this auction

"This vintage Lyricon and Brlhart 9* mouthpiece, was purchased, by us slightly used, in December of 1988, and was only played, when we purchased it, by the seller (Jack Klitzman, from Seattle Washington) for a short time, we loved it's different sound - since that day, it has not been played, just stored with Ron's, 1,500 +, oddball woodwind collectibles, along with it's purchase, also included the Obernein unit. We are not an expert or knowledgeable about electronic (woodwinds yes, electronics, no), so we didn't try anything out - it did work when purchased, 30 years ago. The last 4 "pictures" explains the Lyricons history and how this instrument came about, the very last picture, is about the guy who knows all about these units, he purchased all parts and services the Lyricon units now"
