Silence - BURG feat. Anda Volley

Published on Nov 15, 2018 ollilaboratories

"BURG featuring Anda Volley - Silence by Johan Baeckstrom.

My good very friend Johan asked me if I wanted to do a remix of one of the new tracks on his single silence. I told him, only on one condition, that i get full on free artistic freedom. He gave me a big blue thumbs up (on fb messenger) and it was a deal. :D

I wanted to make something really special on this one, not just work instrumental with some vocal cuts from the track. I got in contact with the super talented multi artist Anda Volley and asked her to interpret the lyrics as spoken word .. then based on her interpretation, her mood and feeling this piece of music came to life. We are really happy with the result, i hope that you all will enjoy it too!!

Open Music Labs / MixTape Alpha w/ Cassette Case

via this auction

"Rare, cool, and discontinued. Very Good Condition. Comes in a clear cassette tape case with original instructions.

Mixtape Alpha is the smallest synthesizer made. It has a stylophone style input for continuous note generation, and 6 buttons for discrete notes. With 4 voices, 4 effects, and 5 note polyphony there is quite a range of expression. But, the best part is, you can record the songs you make, and trade mixtapes with your friends! Perhaps even better, it’s based on the ATmega328p, and can be hacked to make even crazier sounds than we came up with. Mixtape Alpha was done in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab."

New toy November 2018

Published on Nov 15, 2018 SynthMania

"I've wanted a NED Synclavier for years and really wanted to get one by my 50th b-day. Finally recently got a Synclavier (PSMT, the mainframe is out of picture) with seven months to spare :) Now I'm lucky to own *the* three classic high-end digital keyboards of the '80s: the Fairlight, the K250, and the Synclavier."

Interesting that the audio outs on the back are filter outputs? Note the headphones out is on the back as opposed to the front. Also love the distinct panel sections on the front.

Pre-Burns Scots Song (Session 4)

Published on Nov 15, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Right. Tomorrow I'm doing session 5, after which I'm leaving this project for a while. I'm going slightly crazy with all this Scottish music. I assume my subscriber are also :)

This vid plus tomorrow's vid = 50 tracks recorded this week. I'm hearing Scots Song in my sleep. Someone call the doctor.

That being said, there are some good sounds from the Vermona in this set. And some good melodies. There are a couple of tracks akin to the bagpipes, then more modern sounds i.e. the second half of track 5 for a fat analog bass. Nice to show the synth in an entirely different context from standard synth use. And to demonstrate the tonal/timbral range.

...One more set, then a lie down for a while, then something completely different :)

PS some of the melodies in this section are relatively rare - even by Scots Song standards.

Track listing/Timestamps:
0:00 = Lady Keith's Lament
1:02 = Donald Couper
1:56 = I Ha'e Laid Three Herring in Saut
3:05 = Over the Water to Charlie
3:51 = Tak Your Auld Cloak About Ye
5:20 = Haud Awa', Bide Awa'
6:17 = The Wooing of Jenny & Jock
6:41 = The Souters o' Selkirk
7:33 = Tibbie Fowler
8:11 = Ever Alake my Auld Guidman

All best

Musique Lancinantes by Atomic Shadow Featuring Lancinantes from Inear Display

"This is a track that I made with the additive drone synth, Lancinantes from Inear Display. Everything is directly recorded from the software including delay and reverb. No post processing.

This instrument is like an electronic music lab. It's made up of three additive sine oscillators with adjustable harmonics. You have a noise generator, filter, delay, reverb, volume controls and a handy randomizer section. Under the randomizer you can click to change pitch, harmonics, filter and mixer settings. Or all of those at once.

I think this software sounds great and the bang per buck factor is high."

Sequential Announces Prophet 12 Limited Edition in Custom White - Last of the Prophet 12s

"Sequential Commemorates Final Production Run of Prophet 12 Synth with Custom White, Numbered, Limited Edition of 100

San Francisco, CA—November 15, 2018—Sequential today announced a special numbered, limited edition of its acclaimed Prophet 12 Analog/Digital Hybrid synthesizer. Dubbed the Prophet 12 LE, it features a custom, arctic white finish with maple end caps, making it a visually striking contrast to the standard Prophet 12, which has been a significant part of the Sequential product line since its introduction in 2013.

The Prophet 12 LE will be strictly limited to 100 instruments worldwide and will commemorate the last of these synthesizers that Sequential will create. After that, the Prophet 12 will no longer be available.

Dave Smith had this to say about the Prophet 12 LE: “It’s nice to give the Prophet 12 a proper send-off with this special edition. The P12 was a real milestone for us in terms of pushing the synth envelope. As a hybrid instrument, it gave us a chance to explore the interaction of digital oscillators and analog filters and see how far we could take that idea. It’s still a great instrument and has found its way onto a lot of stages and studios, and into a lot of music.”

Sequential product designer Andrew McGowan recalled the genesis of the Prophet 12: “We’d just released the Tempest analog drum machine after several years of development, and we were turning our attention back to synths for the first time in a while. It gave us the opportunity to look at things with a fresh eye. Interestingly, when Dave and I sat down to draw up a spec, it was immediately apparent that we’d each been sort of designing the same instrument in our minds during our ‘time away’ — a hybrid synth with digital oscillators, dual analog filters, and new modulation possibilities. The Prophet 12 came together quickly after that and turned out really well for us.”

The Prophet 12 LE has the same combination of features as the original Prophet 12 — a bi-timbral, 12-voice architecture, with each voice boasting four high-resolution, multi-waveform digital oscillators, a sub-oscillator, analog low-pass and high-pass filters, analog VCAs, four envelopes and four LFOs, and a set of unique Character Effects for sound shaping. Linear FM capability was later added to the Prophet 12 as a software enhancement, giving the instrument even greater depth and making it one of Sequential’s most versatile poly synths.

The Prophet 12 LE will be available in December of 2018 with a US MAP of $2,999. A limited number of standard-finish black Prophet 12s are also available while stock lasts."

BURG 1K Synth Kit Setup - Session Two #volca #DrumBruteImpact #Arturia #ms70CDR

Published on Nov 15, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Hi All, this is the second jam on the BURG1K setup. This track is a bit different than the first one. I wanted to break out from using 4/4 patterns and do something a bit slower, but still with some groove.

The drumbrute has just a little bit of swing/shuffle.. to give that moving feeling and to make sure it does not become too static.

On the volca bass, i have several patterns i switch between that has the second VCO recorded with different notes, and by switching the patterns i can sort of play a pre defined melody. :) This helps with variation in the song.

I still have not decided how to expand the setup with fully. I do have a mixer incoming to ensure proper stereo recording, the behringer 1002B and also a EHX 720 stereo looper.

I a hoping to be able to use these in my upcoming videos.

Gear used:

- KORG volca keys
- KORG volca bass
- Arturia Drumbrute Impact
- 2x Zoom MS-70 CDR FX pedals
- Behringer mx-400 mono mixer
- 2 track Recorder, Zoom H5

Stereo track Post processing

- Izotope Limiter and Compressor
- Cubase native EQ (low end roll off and minor high end boost)


- Arturia drumbrute, mono - mx400
- volca bass, mono - mx400
- volca keys, mono - ms70, mono - mx400
- mx-400, mono - ms70 CDR - stereo out to Zoom H5

FX settings

- Volca keys ms-70 - silky chorus, tape echo, particle reverb
- mx-400 ms-70 - spring (reverb) and analog DLY

Future Gear Additions

- Electro Harmonix 720 Stereo Looper
- Behringer Xenyx 1002B

I hope you will enjoy this one!

Model Electronics SKULPT Synthesiser Livestream Overview

Premiered 48 minutes ago Matthew Hodson

"This is a quick run down of the NEW #SKULPT #synthesiser by #Modal #Electronics. Here I give an overview and a run down of the main features while trying out some of the built in presets. This is a livestream so this is unedited, so apologies for any quirks or rambling 😁

🎼 The track I composed using only this synth can be heard here:"

"UK based artist and synth enthusiast Matthew Hodson was one of the first to get his hands on a prototype of the Modal SKULPT synthesiser. He produced this banging demo track showcasing some of the sonic capabilities our new portable polyphonic synth can dish out.

One half of the Knighstown outfit, Matthew is a busy performer and music producer who has worked in some of the best studios up and down of the UK. Just signed to the legendary FatCat Records, his future sonic excursions will see Matthew produce his own brand of psychedelic techno characterised for his controlled fusion of both ambient and aggressive electronica. His latest album ‘DETACH’ builds on layers of rhythms and melody, drenched in arrhythmic delays and swashes of reverb, which masterfully play with song structure, provoking the listener with familiarity and yet disconnection - is out now via his own label Solitude. Recent performances by Hodson include opening for Wire, supporting the likes of Alex Banks (Monkeytown Records), Ulrich Schnauss, Rival Consoles (Erased Tapes) and also working with the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop on their new material at Peter Gabriel’s Realworld studios.

It's a modular MIDI controller inspired by and for VCV Rack (a free open-source virtual modular synthesizer), so you can change the modules and create a costume midi case, controlling different modules and parameters in VCV Rack, but also in other software as well.
This video is an overview of the Midilar, what it is, how it works, in VCV Rack but also in Reaktor and Reaper."

Shows here 3 CV modulations of 1CV to LFO, 2CV Pink Noise (one and the other of the Black Modulator) 3CV to PICO EG, thanks to this I can mix these modulations together, which creates complex modulations, because this module costs only 30 € is a small 3HP and gives you great opportunities to create a new sound base modulated by CVs. also PICO EG is now for 48€ and Black Modulator for 99€ , crazy price for this things."
