"This is a song I wrote influenced by the Polymoog promo video put out by moog music back in the day. with the release of the Moog One, I thought it would be great to share a little history in a fun way.

This is the same track that you find at the end of Dr. Dave Luce's second polymoog restoration video I posted a few months back.

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Starring Wayne Coyne as The Toecutter by Suit & Tie Guy

Published on Oct 5, 2018 suitandtieguy

"Testing out out some gain staging modifications on my Jupiter-6 to improve the very disappointing sound of its filters, and taking the new Behringer D out for a spin. I used the Novation Circuit to sequence the two synthesisers and drums are from the TR-8.

Gotta once again thank Synthmania for the very kind gift of the D. Thank you my friend!

Reverb is board reverb from a Behringer UFX1204, delay is a custom tape echo patch on the TC Flashback X4. Reverb and delay on the drums is internal to the TR-8.

Recorded to iPod Touch via Tascam iXR courtesy of Tascam.

Let's face it Wayne Coyne is the only guy who could effectively play The Toecutter if we had to cast Mad Max in 2018."

Dannysound CALI OSC (classic Buchla 258 style California oscillator)

Published on Oct 5, 2018 DivKidVideo

"**TIMING INDEX / PATCHES LISTED BELOW** Here's the Cali Osc (california oscillator) from Dannysound which goes alongside the great EN129 thru zero FM oscillator to create a great pair of oscillators. However they are both great stand alone products and that's how they're presented. So watch the EN129 video (link below) after this one and enjoy them both. The Cali Osc is inspired by the Buchla 258 with wave shaping that crossfades between shapes. It begs for audio rate modulation and tonal exploration.

Varg // Live @ Skanu Mezs

Published on Oct 5, 2018 Erica Synths

"Under the moniker of Varg, Jonas Rönnberg runs a cunning operation. Covert transmissions, alongside penetrating statements from techno’s core, are stacked adjacent to self-assertive live performances with an agility and depth of focus rarely summoned so instinctively.

Recorded at the 2017 White Night event of Skaņu Mežs festival in The Concert Hall AVE SOL which was built in 18th century as St. Peter and Pavel Church, Varg presents an hour of ambient soundscapes. Varg is a 2017 alumnus of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, which is supported by the "Creative Europe" programme of the EU."

Dr. Walker // Live @ KONTAKTOR

Published on Sep 24, 2018 Erica Synths

"KONTAKTOR - Live Elektronik Musik festival's first edition took place on first of June in Riga Electrical Machine Building works main building, Sarkandaugava Industrial Park. A night long celebration of audacious electronic music brought together carefully curated live acts only. The program of the event aimed to recoil from the currently common and to accentuate mutating and ever evolving forms of techno, industrial, noise & experimental music. The event was created and produced by Erica Synths.

Dr. Walker, a founding member of Air Liquide, Asbest! and the head of the Liquid Sky Berlin and the soon upcoming Liquid Sky Portugal, also a part of Erica Synths team, brought a live set to trap the festival attendees within groovier rhythms eventually growing into harsher bangers and noisy soundscapes.
