Make Noise QMMG Squelch w Jungle - Baseck

Published on Dec 5, 2018 baseck

"The famous Make Noise QMMG along w jungle breaks

The Quad Multi-Mode Gate music synthesizer module is a huge riff on the original Buchla 292 Quad Lo-Pass Gate, including a Mix Out and all of the original feature set. The QMMG offers additionally: HiPass mode, Voltage Controlled Feedback, Direct Coupling and Normalizations so that multiple channels may easily be used together to create Bandpass Gates, steeper HP, BP or LP Filters or even something like a traditional Synthesizer Voice Architecture.

The QMMG contains no fewer than 8 Vactrols!
The 2018 black and gold reissue of the QMMG is functionally identical to the original. The Top board was re-engineered to use analog pots for mode selection instead of analog switches. The only change to the bottom board is the addition of reverse power protection. The signal path and circuit have not changed."

The Human Comparator Syncussion SY-1 Drum Synthesizer Clone SN 0336

via this auction


Published on Dec 5, 2018 WMDevices

"THE WMD/SSF Ultrafold is an all analog wavefolding module that was made in a collaboration between two eurorack modular synthesizer companies WMD and Steady State Fate (SSF).

In this video we run a Sine Wave from the WMD PDO (phase displacement oscillator) into the Ultrafold and experiment with sounds along the way. Wave folding is a great way to create low-pass filter like sounds but starting with a sine wave and creating harmonics with modulation and wave mixing instead of using a filter to cut out frequencies from a harmonically rich wave.

A second sine wave from the PDO is inserted into Ultrafold's FDBK input, giving the module a secondary source for the wavefolders feedback path. When the feedback CV is positive this waveform is used. When this waveform's phase is modulated it will create even more interesting and dynamically rich harmonics. In this patch we are simply using a sine wave oscillator, the ultrafold wave folder, a VCA/Envelope Combo and a trigger sequencer to drive the Envelope.

The drums that come in later in the video are the HexInverter BD9 which is a kick drum, WMD Fracture and Chimera drum modules which take care of the electronic clap and tambourine sounds respectively.

The WMD/SSF Ultrafold is available now worldwide and comes included with the WMD/SSF Monolith system which is a euorack system integrated into a high-quality 37 Key keyboard case with integrated power."

Soundmit 2018 - Interview: Felix Visser and Stijn Haring-Kuipers about the new Fenix

Soundmit 2018 - 3/4 Nov 2018


We had the pleasure of hosting a great character from the world of synthesizers.

On the occasion of the active collaboration with the guys from This Is Not Rocket Science, Felix Visser, founder of SYNTON, the Dutch company famous for Syrinx and Fenix synthesizers (I, II and III), came to visit us from the Netherlands.

He told us how the Fenix synth was born and how the collaboration with TiNRS is leading to the creation of a new version of the Fenix, revisited in a modern way.

Synth DIY: The Rare Waves Hydronium kit

Published on Dec 4, 2018 EA78751

"The Hydronium DIY acid synth kit from Rare Waves is coming soon! Available in tabletop or Eurorack format. This video takes a closer look at its fun features and explains the CV patch options.
Hydronium can be controlled by either MIDI or CV-Gate. Its VCO has sawtooth, square wave, and PWM waveforms. Pitch slide (legato glide) effect works with both MIDI and CV-Gate control, and it has a handy post-glide v/oct CV output for slaving a second VCO. Glide time can be voltage-controlled. The decay envelope is velocity sensitive, and its bipolar dynamics knob gives unique control over accented notes. Decay time can be controlled by the MIDI mod wheel, as well as a Decay CV input. The filter is a 2-pole state-variable filter. By the term “acid synth” we don’t mean it is a Roland clone, but it does include many 303-inspired playability features... Hydronium DIY kits will be available soon through"

How To Synthesize Analogue Drum Sounds | Roland System 100m

Published on Dec 5, 2018 Alex Ball

"I've briefly got a 1978 Roland System 100m modular synthesizer in my studio, so thought I'd utilize the window of opportunity to do a little tutorial with it. This week we're looking at making analogue drum sounds from scratch.

If you're experienced with modular then this is very, very basic stuff, but if not, you can experiment with these techniques with hardware or within software, so hopefully they'll give you some broad tips.

Thanks for watching."

MOOG MEMORYMOOG - Presets, Sounds & Patches 【SYNTH DEMO】

Published on Dec 5, 2018 synth4ever

"Synth demo of the Moog Memorymoog analog synthesizer, filmed at the Synth Palace in Montreal, Quebec Canada ( or .net).

Introduced in 1982, the Moog Memorymoog synth has 6-voices of polyphony, MIDI and is well known for creating huge and powerful sounds. It is often described as being 6 Minimoogs in a single unit, and some may consider the new Moog One synthesizer as the spiritual successor to the Memorymoog.

The Moog Memorymoog features 3 VCOs per voice (Curtis CEM 3340), 1 LFO, a resonant 24dB Low-Pass Filter, 2 ADSR envelopes, arpeggiator, unison mode, digital pink noise, patch memory and more. For example, VCO 3 can be used to modulate various parameters to create FM-like timbres.

Some Moog Memorymoogs have a history of being unstable/tuning issues, but there have been upgrades including the Memorymoog Plus, and the LAMM rebuild from Lintronics which completely modernize and resolve such issues.

This Moog Memorymoog synth demo features some ambient sounds, patches and presets from the Memorymoog analog synth from Moog including pads, leads, noise, and soundscapes.

All sounds are from the Moog Memorymoog synthesizer with some delay from Strymon El Capistan effects pedal."

Building a MIDIbox SEQ v4+

Published on Jul 27, 2018 Hawkeye

"Welcome to the first part of the video build tutorial of the new MIDIbox SEQ v4+!
1:35:18 - use 20 MHz crystals for the PIC 16F88s! Value/part in the BOM has been corrected.
1:37:00 - the 100N caps are for C3, C6, C9, C12 (not C1-C4). The BOM was correct. Thanks, Keir!

This is a detailed step-by-step build video tutorial with additional notes, tips and tricks. While the SEQv4+ build is targeted towards intermediate DIYers, it is our firm belief, that everyone being able to hold a soldering iron with a fine soldering tip should have a fair chance of building it, therefore the detailed documentation.

Please refer to the above UPDATES/ERRATA and the below NOTES sections before starting building, in case some some errors did sneak into the video - thanks! :)
