YAMAHA AN200 Groove Box demo - half an AN1X, twice an EX5

Published on Dec 15, 2018 Floyd Steinberg

"I recently found out this machine exists, so I found one on eBay and bought it. The Yamaha AN200 is a groove box from 2001, equipped with a PLG-150 AN extension card, which uses the same sound engine as the AN1X or the EX5, but with 5 voice polyphony. I did not spend much time with this yet, just dialed in some sounds and made this short demo. As expected, you can create some powerful sounds with this."

New Gear Day! Korg Minilogue Platinum Grey

Published on Dec 15, 2018 Oscillator Sink

"It's was always going to happen - I got a Miniloguel but I did get the swaggest version - the limited edition Platinum Grey.

Let me know in the comments if you want to see anything in particular covered in upcoming videos - patch building, comparisons, tips and tricks etc. I've already got a bit of a list but I'm happy to hear requests!

It's very different to the DeepMind, so complements it nicely in my setup - but more on that in another video.

Here's a few patches I've built since it arrived. I'm addicted to the lofi, gritty, noisy delay at the moment - I'll dial it back later, but for now I'm just swamping everything in it!"

Buchla 250e Dual Arbitrary Function Generator 2017

via this auction

"Buchla 250e Dual Arbitrary Function Generator. Calling this thing a sequencer is not even close to doing it justice, but on the surface it's basically two sequencers in one with 16 stages, each of which offers direct and immediate access to control and timing voltages. You're only limited by your imagination with this unit as it has a plethora of options on top of what your typical sequencer usually offers."

Analogue Solutions Fusebox Synthesizer modulated by cv in

Published on Dec 15, 2018 studentsmusic

"Excerpts from an improvisation, modulating Fusebox (Patternator) via Makenoise Maths/Doepfer LFO and VCO, syncing Korg Volca Sample. Fusebox is very versatile and gets unique sounds by CV in, making it also a perfect directly sounding Techno/Dance-Machine . Hear some small clips of strange rhythms and sounds."

Toraiz AS-1 Sounds (and Coffee) Part 1

Published on Dec 15, 2018 Stochastic Design

"Have a cup of coffee with us as we explore some of the sounds of the Toraiz AS-1. It has so many sweet spots, and it's inspiring to start with a factory sound and tweak it to perfection while the sequencer or arpeggiator is running.

The weird white thingy that occasionally feeds it MIDI grooves is a FutureRetro Zillion, and yes, that will get a video of it's own in due time.

Hope this gives you a little taste of some of the sonic possibilities of the AS-1 - we'll be back for more!"

SAMPLIGHT 2X + VST (CMI IIX Emulation) quick preview

Published on Dec 15, 2018 Aly James

"Short preview of my upcoming SamPlight 2X+ VST which accurately model the whole Fairlight CMI IIX
The playing itself involves 16 Times oversampling and zero interpolation + analog circuit emulation.
All the quirks of the original are there, including some "JUSTIFY" glitches, loop points scanning artefacts etc..There were some refinement on the usability but do not expect a super fast modern workflow, I tried to kept it as close as can be for a reason!

What is currently done:

PAGE 2 - DISK CONTROL(done: load and save real original .VC files and attached .CO files, version 4.3 and 4.4 including MODE 1 params aka FFT, loading .IN aka Instruments files is in the works..)



PAGE 5 WAVEFORM GENERATION(done but needs some additional GUI work)

PAGE 6 WAVEFORM DRAWING(done but needs some more work)


PAGE 8 SOUND SAMPLING(done, include importing .WAV Files for resampling through the emulated circuitry)

PAGE D WAVEFORM DISPLAY(done, include some other views like POLAR view in addition to the iconics Fairlight ISO an LINEAR views)

PAGE F USER DEFINED FUNCTIONS(done but needs some GUI work)

Lot of things are added within the limitation of what the Fairlight could have done with some extra memory:

- FM Synthesis capabilities, including using waveform memory as a modulator.

- Spectrum Convolution (convolve between 2 spectrum)

- Spectrum Resynthesis manipulation(Harmonic Frequency bins offsets per Harmonic etc..)

- Two ways TimeStrech ( the CMI IIX allowed to increase the duration of the waveform memory only, now you can also reduce it)

More about it soon!"

"My ironical response to modular synths growing market. Computer mouse to eurorack self-clicking module conversion project, specially designed to be build on workshops. Real internet of things to modular synth implementation! Probably the cheapest modular to computer interface. Average materials budget is around 12$. Specially created to be build on workshops. Approximately time of conversion ~ 4-5 hours. Any mouse can be used.

You can use it for triggering anything in your computer using internal LFO or cv/trigger input. Activate you samples, surf on the internet, play games, send messages, place bids on ebay!

Waldorf Q Synthesizer Phoenix Edition SN 920008000045

via this auction

"This one is in very good condition. The only cosmetic flaw is in the upper right corner where it looks like it was struck or accidentally banged into something by a previous owner. The end cheek is scuffed up a bit and the upper panel has a small crease. See photos. It does not look too bad in person and obviously does not affect operation. The rest of the paint is excellent, and any particles you see in the photos is mostly dust against a black background.

It also has a newer display, which is much clearer than the original LCD. Firmware is loaded with BOOT 1.11 and latest OS 3.02..."

Waldorf Quantum : Berlin Sequence For Demo (only the Quantum Talking)

Published on Dec 15, 2018 100 Things I Do

"So the day finally arrived! A Waldorf Quantum is finally in my studio! I have been wanting to get a PPG Wave or a Microwave XT for quite a while but as the start of the year it looked like the Quantum was going to be the way to go! It contains all the wave tables and even Digital filter emulations of the afore mentioned. So, first off a quick demo of the Wavetable, Resonator and Particle engines all wrapped into a Berlin style sequence.

Not to be taken too seriously as a composition. Everything recorded is 100 Quantum (no external effects) its all performed in real time with no patch changes just slowly morphing the sounds with the control surface!

More demos to come as I learn the synth engines more! If anyone wants me to show something specific on the Quantum please let me know!"
