Conductive Labs NDLR + Dreadbox/Polyend Medusa (Reworked Version)

Published on Nov 21, 2018 Genshi Media Group


So this is a reworked version of the previous video. Specifically, I found that the Conductive Labs NDLR has a MIDI Polychain feature where I can spread the MIDI Channels of the PAD out to play Channels 4,5,6 - so that means I was able to turn the Dreadbox/Polyend Medusa's 6 Oscillators (using it's MIDI Channel per Oscillator feature) into a 3 Part Monophonic and 1 Part (three note) Polyphonic synth! Also, I added the Moog DFAM which is being Clocked Sync'd from the NDLR. A touch of Native Instruments Replika delay on the DFAM, and Valhalla Vintage Verb on the Medusa."

The Beauty of Analog String Synthesizers: Wersi String-Orchestra

Published on Nov 21, 2018 HAINBACH

"Analog String Synthesizers are simple yet beautiful machines. Based on a simple synthesis method, they make it up with heavy modulation FX such a chorus and phasers. That is why I think that even today these have their place in a studio - its hard to mimic their shimmering tone with samples and plugins. They sound alive."

ghost's shadow by ghost's shadow

via 鬼的影子:

"This track was a mostly analog hardware jam recorded live with a 2-track Revox PR99 1/4" reel to reel at 7 1/2 ips. Prior to recording I programmed drum tracks on a Roland TR-909 and TR-808, mixed via an old tube amp as I have run out of mixer channels. The kick is being sent to a Sherman Filterbank. The percussion is going through a channel of the Overstayer Saturator. The track also features a Roland SH-5 for the bassline, which is sequenced by a Make Noise Rene and triggered by a Doepfer Darktime (Rene trigger is not strong enough). TR-909 kick and SH-5 bass are on a group going through the other channel of the Overstayer Saturator. The obvious synth part is done with a Casio CZ-5000 of which the synth part was programmed by me from initialised patch. It is going through a ZVEX Lofi-Junky pedal, a Moog Phaser and Dr Scientist Cosmichorus. There is some subtle synth sounds (noise / fx) on L & R stereo field that is done by a PIN Portabella (modern EMS Synthi A clone) and the same sequence from Doepfer Darktime is playing some role in sequencing this from memory. The kind of ehtnic sound near the end of the track is a patch on a Make Noise shared system, using all of the modules in some way. I did a lot of tweaking on the shared system whilst recording. Also used is a Daking FetIII on percussion group and SH-5, and a Joe Meek Twin Q, Bellari RP-583 plus a couple of Valley People 610's on compression and side-chaining duties. Reverb is a spring reverb by IGS called Springtime, and two of its channels is used for a stereo synth bus, while one channel is on the TR-909 kick drum and one channel on the TR-808&909 percussion. I also have two distortion pedals (the red Chandler Limited Little Devil Coloured Boost & the blue Germanium Drive) on a stereo bus for synths, one for the left, one for the right and mix this bus in subtly. Mixed on a 8 Channel Toft Board. Mastered by myself for sound quality as oppossed to loudness by playing back the tape recording through a Thermionic Culture Vulture, followed by a Rockruepel Comp.Two, then a Tubetech HLT2a and finally a Rockruepel Limit.One before being recorded by a Tascam DA-3000.

About me:
I love analog machines and the older technology of the 90's, including tracks made live with hardware before producing with computers was all the rage. I like thinking of the sound generating gear as instruments, which is why I do not use a computer to make music (I don't consider the computer as a very good instrument to jam on, although it is possible as lots of other people demonstrate - such as my friend Skueue who shows how powerful a computer can be for jamming). A lot of my interest in music is closely related to machines, and without machines I may not have had such an interest in pursuing a hobby in music and sound design. My gear is not dissimilar a nice car to car enthusiasts, and I have chosen gear over owning a car, clothes shopping, fancy restaurants etc. I am not interested in fame, money or popularity and really appreciate people that do music, and art in general, for the love of it. I believe in making unique music based on going with what you feel rather than what you've heard others doing and trying to recreate something that's already been done. I use chinese characters as an artist name as most people will not be able to search for you, which ultimately makes the focus of building your brand name and being popular non-existant. This way, I can focus entirely on making music and not the associated things that come with it."

Roland MC-8 Factory Demo Program - Bach Invention #1

Published on Feb 1, 2010 peahix

"This is another of the demo programs provided in the Roland MC-8 manual. This time it's a Bach Invention, played back on a Roland SH-101 synth (not seen in the video). The first part of the video is specifically designed to bore you with stunning footage of me entering the channel 1 CV data for the first 3 pages of the 10-page score. Be thankful that I didn't decide to include the entire CV/Step/Gate data entry process for the entire score. In the 2nd part of the video, you hear the entire mixed piece, played back in sync with the MC-8 displaying the CV data for channel 1.

After posting this video, I was informed that Yellow Magic Orchestra featured this very same demo at the very end of the show during their 1980 world tour. You can hear their version here:

Matrixbrute Does Tetris Theme (...+ Nikolai Medtner)

Published on Nov 21, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Recreation of the A section. Square wave, single VCO only for each part. Vid at the start is the melody. Here are the gate settings:

Melody = 100%
Noise = 40%
Bassline = 96%
Counter-melody = 83%

However, on listening back, the distinction of the semiquaver repeated notes during the counter-melody isn't clean enough (in the mix). I'd suggest reducing the gate length to somewhere between 75-80%.

Tempo = 149 BPM. Take note of when the sequencer is playing quavers, and when it is playing semiquavers.

The countermelody has to be two separate sequences due to the semiquavers i.e. 8 by 16 rather than 8 by 8.

The individual voices should be useful for anyone looking to recreate the piece. No large-scale synth necessary - you can make the piece on the simplest of synths. Even VST's will do the job fine.

Technical details RE the Gameboy sound hardware here -

The Tetris theme is actually a very famous Russian folk song, 'Korobeiniki'.

Shake it like a servo motor!

Published on Nov 21, 2018 יזהר אשדות Izhar Ashdot

"Shake it like a servo motor!
I’ve been playing with the idea of controlling Percussion instruments with servo motors as part of my modular setup.
I failed to build my own voltage to PWM circuit but finally found on EBay a cheap three channel voltage-to-PWM board, designed for RC models.
I built a small module around it.
I bought a few kinds of servo motors to test which would work best. Even the cheaper ones had enough torque to shake a tambourine and a LP shaker.
A strong vise was necessary to keep the instruments from spinning and flying across the room.
This video is a proof of concept. I hope soon to integrate this module into my music making setup.

New Percussa mSSP (Mini SSP) to Launch on Kickstarter, Friday Nov 23

New module based on the Super Signal Processor coming from Percussa.

"(Los Angeles, CA) This coming Friday November 23rd, our second kickstarter project, the Percussa micro Super Signal Processor (mSSP) Eurorack module, is going live at 8am Los Angeles time.

It's the result of interaction with the eurorack community since we launced the Percussa Engine and Synthor System 8 at the Winter NAMM 2017 show in Anaheim, CA.

The mSSP is the smaller, lower cost but equally powerful version of the successful Percussa SSP eurorack module which was funded on Kickstarter in September 2017 and which was delivered in June 2018.

The mSSP comes with the same quad-core ARM cortex A17 processor @ 1.8GHz as the SSP, one of the fastest ARM processors available, and high end AKM audio converters offering 8 in / 4 out @192kHz 32-bit.

New Maker - Olympia Modular TUNNELS - Infinite Multiple for Eurorack Synthesizers on Kickstarter

"Olympia Modular is the first collaboration between Olympia Noise Co. developer Ben Kamen and Buchla Development Engineer Charles Seeholzer."

via Kickstarter:

"TUNNELS is a new type of Eurorack utility module that allows you to duplicate and route signals across your modular synthesizer. We call it the “Infinite Multiple,” but you could also describe it as an “Inter-Panel Buffered Multiple,” or perhaps a “Mult Bus.”

TUNNELS is comprised of two distinct modules : TUNNEL IN and TUNNEL OUT. The TUNNEL IN module by itself is a buffered multiple, duplicating an input signal to create multiple outputs. The TUNNEL OUT module expands the TUNNEL IN module to add additional outputs at another location in your synthesizer. TUNNEL OUT modules can be chained together infinitely to create massive buffered multiple banks or send common signals like clocks and 1v/oct signals to strategic locations in your synth.

The TUNNEL IN module has three inputs, each routed to a pair of outputs. When disconnected, the inputs are normalled to the previous input, allowing for a variety of configurations. With the first input connected it is a 1 in : 6 out multiple. Using the first two inputs makes a 1 in : 2 out multiple and a 1 in : 4 out multiple. With all three inputs connected, it acts as three 1 in : 2 out multiples.

The TUNNEL OUT module receives the three channels from TUNNEL IN via a TUNNEL LINK cable, adding three additional buffered outputs per channel. With one input connected, for example, you would now have a 1 in : 15 out multiple. Add additional TUNNEL OUT modules to expand your TUNNELS system however you see fit.

Because TUNNELS is a buffered (non-passive or powered) multiple, critical signals like 1 volt per octave control voltages are able to maintain their integrity regardless of the size of the TUNNELS system.

TUNNELS is engineered with live-patching in mind. Normalled connections between inputs are also buffered, preventing the momentary short that can happen with other multiples. This means no dropped clocks or audible glitches in modulation or pitch while working on your patch.

Patch from Scratch: "Eurorack Ambient"

Published on Nov 21, 2018 MAKEN0ISE


The patch for this video was inspired by classic ambient and furniture music, as well as by currently popular ambient modular composers here on YouTube.

Erik Satie first introduced the notion of “furniture music”, music specifically made not to be the center of attention.

He made some other musical innovations that are pertinent to ambient music, including;

1. The removal of bar lines from sheet music. (The experience of playing pieces in this style, such as the 6 Gnossienes, is that of finding the meter that arises between the note durations rather than having it dictated by the outward structure of the piece.)

2. The notion of exact temporal durations in minutes and seconds being prioritized as the main structural element of pieces.

In a letter, John Cage once wrote: “the importance due [Satie] [is], I believe, to have consistently structured his music on lengths of time rather than harmonic relations. I’m sure he was aware of doing this but I doubt whether he knew its real importance, which is real: liberation from the Beethoven yoke, far more real than that granted by S[choenberg] with the 12-tone row.”

The best known pioneer of “ambient music” *as such* is Brian Eno.

For Eno, Ambient music should function equally well in the background and the foreground. “It must be as ignorable as it is interesting.”

Introducing New HotSawz Synth Algorithm for Eventide's H9

Published on Nov 6, 2018 Eventide Audio

"Transform your instrument into a massive synth with HotSawz, a pitch-tracking, monophonic synth engine for your H9. With six stackable sawtooth oscillators, three modulation sources, and four assignable destinations, HotSawz allows you to create a wide palette of sounds that run the gamut from classic synthwave to a pulsing panorama of bouncing blips, brassy swells, and sub-bass swagger.

The modulation sources include LFO, Envelope Follower, and ADS Gate, while the four assignable destinations are comprised of Filter Cutoff, Volume, Pitch and Oscillator Depth. Each modulation source can be assigned to any of these destinations at a given time. Thus, multiple sources can manipulate the same destination. In fact, there are 64 combinations of source to destination assignments, providing a vast landscape for serious experimentation For example, scope your favorite sci-fi thriller sounds from Blade Runner to Stranger Things, and create 8-bit video game blips, screaming 70s saw leads and undulating bass odysseys on individual tracks.

Too spicy? Dial it back with the global Mix function and maintain some of your original tone. Not spicy enough? Transpose the oscillators up and/or down by one octave for that thick, analog synth sound. Create your own recipe for sonic satisfaction by sprinkling on a bit of HotSawz to excite your auditory taste buds!"

Arp Solina String Ensemble MK1 1975 SN 0093165

via this auction

"Rare, early model Arp Solina! Series 22 which is the ~2nd year of production. Early 1X series did not have the mod/chorus switch and only a few had Gate/trigger out. Arp added the switch to the front panel and gate/trigger out on a few early 2x series, which eventually was done by eminent for the MK2, which are mainly later 2x series and after. You can tell the difference as the MK2 has the chorus button on the right side of the keyboard.

The early MK1s are hard to find, especially with the mod/chorus switch and gate/trigger out. The MK1 has the most classic Solina sound used on countless recordings.

Everything works, all voices, bass, keys, sliders. Body has a few minor scratches but still great for a +40 year old stringer. There is a piece broken off the right front corner, I got it this way and. I was either going to fill it in to reshape it or just sand it flat, but never got around to it. This is an easy cosmetic fix and of course does not effect the sound."

Each channel serves as a great channel high end mixer style VCA with soft colour and then distortion that glues that mix bus/summing together really nicely. You can use the channels and break them out of the mix, CV over volume and pan is great from slow modulation right through audio rates, feedback is very cool and the stereo pass through is a nice way to get 6 channels going.
