The Verbos Complex Oscillator - In Depth | Tutorial

Published on Nov 13, 2018 Under the Big Tree

"The Complex Oscillator from Verbos Electronics is a masterpiece of high quality analog design. It follows the west coast tradition of synthesis, by starting with a simple waveform and then adding color through FM, AM, and wave shaping.

In this in-depth tutorial, we delve deeply into the oscillator, exploring each knob and jack separately and with each other. I recorded the output to an oscilloscope at the same time, so you can see the waveform change as I talk about it."

OP-Z Ambient Music

"An experiment in sequencing on the op-z: I live recorded everything with no regard to tempo, or groove. All the sequences are different lengths, too. I think it all lines up in a really beautiful way, and I hope you do too!"

Pre-Burns Scots Song (Session 3)

Published on Nov 13, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Nice set, this one. Good melodies.

For 'The Black Bird' I've went for a slightly raspy, bird-like sound. Silly, really, as the song isn't even about a bird! Still, it works well.

You've probably noticed I'm recording 10 works per video. Given the works are single-note melodies, they probably don't seem like too much work. But this is turning out to be quite an involved project i.e. creating an entirely new/original patch for each melody. Add on video editing etc, and it is quite a task. Projects like this normally have considerable financial support, but this is purely a personal project I'm investing my own free time into.

I have around 500 melodies to record. I plan on recording 10 videos (i.e. the first 100 works), after which I'll take a break from the project for a while. Disdain for the music could quite easily set in, given the scale. Better to take a step back. No rush, given the melodies have been around for a good few centuries!

Pittsburg Modular Structure 344 Sound & Video Eurorack Synthesizer

Published on Nov 13, 2018 Perfect Circuit

"Pittsburg Modular's new Structure 344 eurorack studio case has 4 rows of 84HP in an ergonomic layout with an convenient 1U utility row in the middle. We loaded the top two rows with LZX video synthesizer modules and built a synth voice in the bottom two rows. An Elektron Digitakt was used for the drum sounds and sequencing of the synth via a Hexinverter Mutant Brain. We made a complex oscillator with two Joranalogue Filter 8s and a Compare 2 for cross modulation. Effects are provided by Synthesis Technology modules including the E440 VCF and E560 Deflector Shield.

Oberheim Matrix-12 Synthesizer Sounds Demo #10

Published on Nov 13, 2018 gstormelectro

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

Today it's snowing a bit early this year. Nothing better than being hunkered down tweaking patches on a lovely Matrix-12 synthesizer. Each of the patches are auditioned dry first, then I maybe activate either/or Timefactor and Big Sky - some patches don't need anything :)

Patches range from the super-dark horrorshow opener, thick airy pads, hyper-surreal soundscapes, the occasional bass, and the occasional Hans Zimmer plucky thing.

Recorded direct to Tascam DR-05, audio was normalized.
No other effects or processing."

8 voice wavetable synthesis + FX on the Percussa SSP eurorack module

Published on Nov 12, 2018 PERCUSSA

"short demo featuring an 8-voice wavetable synthesis patch on the percussa ssp eurorack DSP module: each voice consists of a wavetable oscillator, input and MIDI modules, envelope generator and bus module. The envelope generator amplitude-modulates the wavetable oscillator. MIDI module provides pitch, Z modulation and envelope gate/amplitude signals. XY modulation is done using the inputs which are connected to a planar joystick or dixie II LFO. The sound of all oscillators is routed via the bus module to a delay and reverb module before it goes to the output. 43 modules total are running in parallel on the SSP. Learn more at"

Plogue chipcrusher v2.0 : Retro-Digital Multi-FX

UI Redesign from
NKS FX Support!

Downloads and more info:"

"Nostalgic for vintage sound encodings, 80s computer speakers, or the SPC Delay from a famous 16-bit console? chipcrusher's got all that, plus grit (background noise) and filter-impulse responses.

There is a wide spectrum of results achievable with chipcrusher. Here are a few use cases:

Uniquely destroy/mangle a beat, a guitar or any other audio track.
Play single hits and emulate the sound of old samplers.
Add ‘accurate dirt’ to chipsounds’s output.
Emulate a classic 16-bit console's "Delay/verb" to a track
There are four main components in chipcrusher: DAC Encoding, SPC Delay, Background Noise and Cabinet. The audio inputs first go to the DAC Encoding. Then gets processed by the SPC Delay, mixed with the Background Noise to finally get sent to the Cabinet stage. Of course, each component can be bypassed on demand without muting the audio.

Autechre 2008 Elektrons Backup || Sysex from AE Store

"For those who don't know the full story:

Direct audio feed from Machinedrum (SPS1UW+ MKII ) and Monomachine (SFX60+ MKII).
Connected the MNM AB and CD outputs but no signal has been recorded from the CD outputs.

For delivering the full pattern set purposes, I changed one setting from the original Machinedrum global menu in the control sysex page: set the PRGCHG to ON so that changing pattern on the Machinedrum mirrors on the Monomachine as well.

BPM setting set according to songmode BPM settings in the machinedrum original sysex.

Found also some Machinedrum songs to play in songmode so I recorded em as well at the end of the full memory banks pattern dump.

With special dedication to a couple of blabbering cunts in wattm."

"This is a video I made for Mark going over the final results of his Opus 3.

Thanks for watching!


via this auction

"It is an analog monosynthe module that puts MIDI in minimoog and put it in 4 U rack size. The width of the sound making has been greatly expanded compared to the original minimoog such as oscillator sink, sweeper, etc, which is equipped with modulation dedicated LFO which can be blended with oscillator 3. Because we can control cutoff and volume of filter by velocity and after touch, expressive power is up. There are scratches in some places. There is a curvature of the rack ear in the upper left and the lower right. accessories Copy Japanese manual"

"Realistic Concertmate MG-1 Analog Synthesizer, manufactured by Moog in the early 1980s. This one - gently used - is in excellent condition. It still has the headphone jack protective cap! Also, this MG-1 comes with a few extras...


A custom-made, incredibly rugged carrying case. I was hired to record drums (my main ax) on a few songs, written by a fairly accomplished singer-songwriter by night, and carpenter by day, who was short on cash.
Styrofoam packing, from the original box, repurposed in the custom case
Owner's Manual (original hardcopy, B&W version)
Digital versions of the Owner's Manual and Service Manual
A partial roll of shrink tubing! "Huh?", you ask. Over time, some of the slider knobs have developed hairline cracks, and have become loose. In an effort to prevent them from eventually falling off and getting lost, I added clear shrink tubing to all of them. It keeps them secure, makes for a better grip, and creates an interesting look. You're free to remove the tubing if you want.

Not included:

The foam under the hood has been removed. Caught just in time, too. Nasty stuff."
