2HP Vowel Speech Synthesizer With VCF 74 MK2

Published on Nov 9, 2018 Perfect Circuit

"The tiny 2HP Vowel is a eurorack speech synthesizer module with two algorithms and voltage control over all three of its parameters. In this video we ran the Vowel through the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74 MK2 filter. We used TipTop Audio 808 drum modules for the drums and used the Koma Field Kit FX for mixing and effects. Sequencing comes from the Korg SQ-1 and Malekko Varigate 4+, and the Quad Envelope produces the envelopes.

"Download this patch here:
CAmenti records and then slices a sample into segments. It plays those segments rhythmically with a generative algorithm called Cellular Automata (CA). The CA is made up of 256 rules and selecting a different rule will play the segments in a different pattern. Set master in/out points in your root sample. Stitch segments together to form sustained (uninterrupted) sounds. Turn segments on and off with the keyboard keys. Sample drums and make a new rhythm! Sample sustained sounds to make a choppy bounce! Sample the radio for a twisted broadcast!"

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith Tides: Music For Meditation And Yoga on the Buchla Music Easel

Published on Nov 9, 2018 Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith

Pre-Order Now
LP Shipping late December
Worldwide Digital January 11th


Recorded in 2013,Tides is a glimpse into the early phase of what has become Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s signature approach to electronic music. Composed and played on a Buchla Music Easel––the modular synthesizer that gives Smith’s music its organic feel––this collection of instrumentals is at once uplifting, transportive and meditational. It comes as no surprise that it was commissioned by Smith's mother to accompany her yoga practice.

Tides pulsates and swells like the ocean itself. Field recordings of wind chimes and forest sounds are interspersed throughout much of the album, accentuating the pastoral aspirations of their electronic counterparts. The chirp of a bird might be confused for the elongated intervals of a muted siren, a steam valve opening and closing for the sound of the surf, or a drone for a live organ. The actuality is elusive and secondary to the alchemy at work. Natural and synthetic components become indistinguishable from one another and cohere seamlessly into a unified paean to bliss. Though the ambient nature of these recordings is inextricable, it is belied by an undercurrent of heart-like beats that hint at the visceral force of Smith’s current work.

SKYPAD Multitouch iOS & Android Controller for ORBIT and ECLIPSE

Uploaded on Oct 11, 2018 Wide Blue Sound

"Wide Blue Sound spreads ORBIT and ECLIPSE wings with SKYPAD controller alongside APEX and AETERNA expansions

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA: musical synth designers Wide Blue Sound is proud to announce availability of its SKYPAD controller app alongside APEX and AETERNA — the first official expansion packs for its award-winning ORBIT and ECLIPSE flagship software synthesizers — as of October 15…

SKYPAD is a boundary-pushing remote and creative automation tool that runs on any iOS or Android tablet with Liine’s Lemur (MIDI/OSC controller) app installed. It adds hands-on control of every parameter in ORBIT and ECLIPSE, and, more importantly, adds many brand-new features to Wide Blue Sound’s software synthesizer flagships.

Firstly, SKYPAD’s Generator builds upon ORBIT and ECLIPSE’s Intelligent Randomize feature to create new patches based on musical and emotional keywords. It is the fastest way to make custom presets that simply sound fantastic!

Furthermore, the Multiball page controls any parameters in the entire synth with a fun physics-based interface. Here SKYPAD users can quickly move objects around the screen with multi-touch, then record the result in their DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)!

The Spatial Mixer is an intuitive 3D space mixer. Here users can place each of the synth’s four sound sources in virtual space with their fingers or enable the Earth Gravity mode by moving the tablet itself. Indeed, this creative tool uses a hand-crafted combination of panning, filters, reverb, and delay to create a sense of distance and depth.

SKYPAD’s FX XY macro pads combine ORBIT and ECLIPSE’s essential effects parameters together. This time users can quickly shape sounds using simple gestures, generating dramatic sweeping motions between different distortions, spaces, and more.

Maintains Wide Blue Sound founder Nathan Rightmour: “The Wide Blue Sound team is really excited to release SKYPAD. We’ve dropped the keyboard and mouse completely here at WBS HQ, and now only use SKYPAD to interact with ORBIT and ECLIPSE. It’s so much more than a remote; for us, it’s been a new way to connect with sound and music.”

Meanwhile, Wide Blue Sound has also released the APEX and AETERNA expansion packs for ORBIT and ECLIPSE, respectively. Created by one of the industry’s most revered sound designers, they represent the latest trends in electronic and cinematic music.

SKYPAD now comes included with every purchase of ORBIT and ECLIPSE — priced at $199.00 USD and $149.00 USD, respectively, and available directly from Wide Blue Sound ("

New Vermona fourMative CONTOURS Eurorack Module

"In the end, there is just one big topic when it comes to modular systems: MODULATION. Modulation brightens up the static boredom, arouses interest and is in most cases the foundation for living soundscapes and rhythmicity. Beside LFOs, envelope generators are the most relevant modulation sources in the world of modular. We already offer a very talented LFO module, the fourMULATOR and now it gets the perfect envelope-generator-counterpart: fourMative CONTOURS.

fourMative CONTOURS hast four individual channels, we decided to call them units. Each of these units can work as attack-, decay- or hold-phase, the first two with a linear or exponential response. Units can be used individually or in any combination. With these features alone, fourMative CONTOURS is a strong base for many many different modulation tasks.

Thrill of Speed
Each unit can run within a time range from half a millisecond up to 30 seconds. To ensure sensitive adjustments you can choose between SLOW and FAST speed range setting, the latter specialized for crisp and percussive sound applications.

However, that’s only half the truth. fourMative CONTOURS’ units are equipped with CV inputs, not only allowing to modulate the times but also extends them in both directions. If you have the task for a two-hour-envelope, fourMative CONTOURS can deliver it.

Good Vibrations
With simple internal patching, you can loop individual or combined units. Thanks to its high rates fourMative CONTOURS can not only work as LFO but also as audio-source.

fourMative CONTOURS goes far beyond the capabilities of standard envelope generators. If you are looking for a versatile modulation source, give it a try. We are entirely sure that there are more situations where fourMative CONTOURS fills the blanks than you can imagine now."

Ableton Live Wavetable synth tutorial

Published on Nov 9, 2018 once upon a synth

"Tutorial of Ableton's Wavetable synth plugin. I go over all the different buttons and settings and explain what they do. This is a wavetable synthesizer that ships with Ableton Suite. It has a large set of wavetables and an elaborate modulation matrix for creating really complex evolving sounds. You get two oscillators, two filters, 3 ADSR envelope generators and 2 LFOs. There's also some cool morphing and folding effects you can apply to the oscillators to further change them. The interface is also pretty cool because you can expand it to take up the whole screen, giving you a focused interface with no tabs."

80s Chord Voicing Tutorial

Published on Nov 9, 2018

"Thought it might be of use to do a video showing how to voice your everyday vanilla chords in an 80s way. It’s actually very simple, so hopefully it’s easy to grasp.

Here’s some emulations of the Juno-6, although it now seems the most popular one (the TAL-UNO-X) is no longer free and costs around £45. But that’s still very cheap for what it is.

All the featured chords if you want them written down (commence debate about whether 11 chords exist):

Fmaj7sus2 (LH = F C / RH = F G C E)

Dm11 (LH = D A / RH = F G A C)

Bbadd2 (LH = Bb F / RH = C D F)

Gm7sus2/4 (LH = G D / A C F)

Cadd4 (LH = C G / RH = C E F G)

Dm11 (LH = D A / C E F G)

F/C (LH = C F A / RH = C F A)

F/A (LH = A F / RH = A C F)

Ab6 (LH = Ab Eb / RH = C Eb F)

Gm7sus4 (LH = G D / C D F)

Thanks for watching."

The cheapest way to get a Linndrum or DMX drum machine without paying blood. Awesome solution.

Published on Nov 9, 2018 Espen Kraft

"Many musicians doing synth based music dream of a Linndrum, LM-1 and/or a Oberheim DMX. The first two go for ridiculously high prices these days.
In this video I show you that by getting a much cheaper Sequential TOM drum machine instead, you can get cartridges with the Linndrum/LM-1/DMX sounds. In contrary to many other cheaper drum machines with swapped ROM sounds the TOM has the ability to TUNE, PAN, adjust VOLUME and play the cartridge sounds in REVERSE, just like the Linndrum, all programmable. To me this is the ultimate solution to get those sounds for a lot less than buying the price-inflated original Linns.

If you want to get these cartridges for your own Sequential TOM drum machine you can find them here:"
