CatSynth TV: E350 Morphing Terrarium [Episode 98]

Published on Dec 8, 2018 CatSynth TV

"A demonstration of the E350 Morphing Terrarium from Synthesis Technology. The E350 is a wavetable oscillator that allows morphing between a large number of waveforms along three axes of control.

We go through the basic functionality of the bank-selection and Morph X,Y and Z controls. We then use the LFOs and keyboard of the Arturia MiniBrute for expressive control of the module and its parameters.

This demo also includes a brief introduction to the MTX "Morphing Terrarium Expander" from Manhattan Analog that provides access to hidden parameters, including morph/phase toggle and "glitch" mode that switches between wavetables without the smooth morphing.

New Percussa mSSP Demos - Oberheim / OB 4-Voice, Wavetable, & Granular Patch Demos

Published on Dec 8, 2018 PERCUSSA

via Kickstarter:

"The past days we worked on more patches and videos for the Percussa mSSP kickstarter. Here is the first one in the series we'll be posting: a subtractive synthesis patch featuring 32 modules running in parallel on the mSSP: each voice consists of 2 oscillators + SVF + 2 ENVs + MIDI. There is also an fx chain built into the patch and we apply external SVF cutoff and FM modulation in this video as well (using make noise function and intellijel dixie II modules)."

And some additional demos featuring an 8-voice wavetable and granular synth patches:


1. mssp proto demo 1
"8-voice wavetable synthesis patch, controlled via MIDI, with each voice consisting of a wavetable oscillator with 3D morphing, ADSR envelope, input modulation, MIDI module, and a bus module. The patch also has a delay and reverb module before going to the output module where the signals are routed to the output channels."
2. mssp proto demo 2
3. mssp proto demo 3
"granular patch with input (start/length) modulation, and a delay and reverb processor, right before the output module. Sample used for the granular demo is choir sings -Magnificat- 140928.wav by klankbeeld / capella ducis on"


Published on Dec 8, 2018 CO5MA

"For that preset, I used 2 layers, 6 oscillators, 2 analog filter settings

Live recording. Everything comes from the Waldorf Quantum. No external FX, no external sounds.

Added some dialogs in postproduction.

Caronagraphic // Digitone and Deluge ambient

Published on Dec 8, 2018 rustyjaw

"Further explorations of the Deluge, learning to use the arranger. It feels like having a super power to have such control over song structure after spending so much time working only on a modular.

This is 3 tracks from the Digitone, drums from Deluge, arppegiated synth line is Deluge, bass is JP-08.

The only module being used here is the 4MS DLD, which is adding a subtle delay on the bassline.

Deluge audio runs through Flint (it's hidden behind the stand), Digitone runs through the H9. Everything is recorded to 3 stereo tracks on the Zoom H6.

Please excuse the flickering lights! Or alternatively, enjoy the light show. The refresh rate of the LEDs interferes with the 30fps video capture. I'll have to figure out a better way to do this."

Note that the envelope used as a CV source has its attack and decay modulated via LFOs, so as to give an idea of slow and fast attack and decays."

Par - Método

Par - Método from Par on Vimeo.

A new video from supportting member, Par. The track is featured on his previous album Arq (2016).

"Método exists in the edge, between sleep and wakefulness, between life and death, between being alone and being among others, between day and night. It is loving the night, the state in which everyone descends into their own world, into their idiocy, their oniric dialogue with the deceased. Nameless sleepers, apolitical, illogical, sleeping we descend into Hades under the city. At night, the man shines a light for himself. In private, he gives up on the common, he sleeps, he imagines, he turns to one side and another, he dreams. Everyone to themselves, no one for the city."

BURG1k Synth Kit Setup - Session Four (volca, ehx720, ms70cdr)

Published on Dec 8, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

#BURG1K session 4 - #volca #ehx720 #ms70cdr - this time a bit more ambient and laid back. I wanted to showcase how a looper can be used by just creating a little simple loop to glue together the spaces and silence in a more ambient track.

The looper has a really short simple three note melody structure recorded with the vBass.

The Volca Bass (and the looper) has in the ms70 a fifth / ICE delay algorithm which i think is based on one of the strymon timeline sounds. It is excellent for cheating a bit, e.g creating chord like structures with single note melodies.

Volca Keys does two parts, intro solo sounds plus a sequence in the second half of the track synched with the vBass.

The signal is a little hot at times, still mixing in the headphones so apologies for that :)

Published on Dec 8, 2018 ProckGnosis

"Just 3 patch examples for the Dreadbox Erebus v3, including 1) vibrato, 2) sample and hold, and 3) percussion. All 3 examples use the mod wheel to control the amount of the modulation, but offer significantly different results.

3 for the v3 - Erebus Patch Examples
1. Mod-wheel control of vibrato depth (02:57)
2. Sample & hold modulation of the filter cutoff using the mod wheel (06:10)
3. Percussion sounds (10:05)

And yes, the intro music is 100% just the Dreadbox Erebus v3."

Music 2000 For Playstation 150bpm DnB PS1 Eboot on PSP

Published on Dec 8, 2018 ChrisLody

"I've been wanting to get back into Music 2000 (or MTV music generator outside of Europe) on Playstation for years as I learned a ton from it back in the day but I never managed to finish a single thing on it. I still have the original PS1 disc but no PS1 so I made this Eboot which to my surprise runs almost perfectly on a PSP.

So I now have a nice portable music making device and built this old school drum and bass track over the last few days, only about 19 years too late. It's made from internal sounds apart from the second break that kicks in about half way through, this was from a 2003 Computer Music sample CD as I wanted to try out the sampling feature. I did this on PS3 and transferred the save over. It doesn't run properly on PS3 but at least this is possible."
