Minibrute 2 solo/unaccompanied performance

Published on Dec 22, 2018 DreamsOfWires

"Another version of a track I last recorded with the Minibrute SE. I was interested to see how it would come out if I performed the track on it's bigger brother. The previous version is also available on Bandcamp, and YouTube:
Video: [below]

The album:

Recorded using AUM on an iPad, with Audio Damage's Dubstation 2 for delay, and EOS2 for reverb.

Christa Steiner - Silent Night on NuEVI - 1st Time Live

Published on Dec 22, 2018 Mark Steiner

"Christa's first live NuEVI (or any instrumental) performance. She's great under pressure. I'm so proud of her. Her great uncle, Nyle Steiner, invented the EVI (wind synth) back in the 70's. So neat to see her as the 3rd generation of her family now performing on this great instrument."

Two hundred seasons // Digitone + Eurorack drone ambient

Published on Dec 22, 2018 rustyjaw

"A little hymn to 50 years of existence.

Deluge is for control only here, no sounds. Opening chord is JP-08 going into Magneto and then into Clouds then out to Strymon Flint Reverb.

Digitone is going into H9.

Rings fed plucked notes from Dixie II, using Double Andore as VCA. Rings then goes into DLD.

Later, waterfall sounds (field recording from Fern Canyon, CA) from Morphagene into Cinnamon filter.

The track was arranged on Deluge, I'm mainly manipulating Magneto and Morphagene speed/Cinnamon cuttoff levels, Clouds levels, and H9 settings."

Almost looks like it has custom yellow EDP Wasp knobs. There's no mention of it in the listing so I'm guessing it's just the lighting. Interesting look though.

Percussa mSSP Kickstarter Recap and Countdown

Above is a playlist featuring all the demos of the upcoming Percussa mSSP. Note the Kickstarter campaign ends tomorrow. If you've been thinking about picking one up and/or want to see it happen, now is the time. Percussa let me know that the module will only happen if it gets fully funded and the campaign is currently at $56,257 pledged of the $120,000 goal. This is one powerful module that can be morphed into different things. It includes wavetable, granular, and FM synthesis as well as various effects.

Relaxing with Monark bass sounds before Christmas ­čÄž

Published on Dec 22, 2018 Synth & Sundry

"Jumping around between NI Monark's bass presets playing them with an arpeggiator and tweaking them. Everything is running Ableton Live 9 Suite and I use the MIDI LFO Max for Live plugin to add some more movement to the sound. I really like the sound of this Native Instruments Reaktor plugin."

Patricia Wolf Sound Pack for the Novation Peak v1.2

via Patricia Wolf:

"This is a demonstration of the sound design work I did for the Novation Peak. I created 50 patches demonstrating some of the new features that the v1.2 firmware update has to offer. My sound pack is available for free with the update through Novation's Components App. Select the Novation tab on that app to access them as well as GForce Software's free patches.

The patches are performed with a mixture of Octatrack sequencing (using sequences from songs I have written) and live performance with a MIDI controller. I was inspired by artists like Delia Derbyshire and wanted to record little vignettes and sonatas using the Peak without other sound sources.

I made this recording so that friends can hear the sounds I made and so that other Peak users can get a closer glimpse into how I envision sound design. Please get in touch if you have any questions about my process or anything else related to this project and I will respond as best I can.

The Novation Peak was recorded directly into a Steinberg UR44 interface. No external effects. Subtle mastering from Tokyo Dawn Labs software to balance recordings of different patches.

And here is a little bit of information about me:

Patricia Wolf is an electronic musician, sound designer, and gallery curator based in Portland, Oregon. After years of working in the synth pop duo Soft Metals, Wolf became interested in exploring non-linear songwriting and new forms of synthesis. Alongside working with Novation, Wolf co-founded the gallery Variform which focuses on sound design and modern composition. Patricia Wolf is a recipient of the Precipice Fund, a grant funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, to explore synthesis in the contemporary art world."

O Christmas Tree - modular synth

Published on Dec 22, 2018 Joe Miller - Xin

"A simple tune made while testing Hermod (in other case). Well wishes to all, and happy holidays.

In Memoriam A. H. H. OBIIT MDCCCXXXIII: 106

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be."

Synthchaser #113 - ARP Fender Rhodes Chroma Repair

Published on Dec 22, 2018 Synth Chaser

"This Rhodes Chroma lay dormant for over a decade, and wouldn't wake up from its long nap. In this video we troubleshoot and repair the power supply and get the synth alive and making sound. We also have a brief tour around the inside of this legendary polysynth.

Want to see more of the restoration and upgrade of this Chroma? Let me know what you'd like to see in the comments!

Parts, repairs, and synthesizers are available on my website."

Roland TB-303 bassline analog synthesizer

via this auction

"This is the Holy Grail! This particular 303 is in very good condition for its age and construction. Everything works. The filter on this particular unit is excellent I've heard some wimpy ones and some buzzy ones but this sits right in between! No mods no touring the writing isn't all rubbed off like the other 303s you see. This is an excellent example and doesn't show signs of failure at all."

Roland MC-202 MicroComposer SN 92400 w/ Original Box, Gig Bag, & Manuals

via this auction

The seller has another listed here.

"Roland MC-202 MicroComposer with original box, manuals, and Roland case up for grabs. Introduced in 1983, this was Roland's next generation battery operated hybrid MC-4 MicroComposer coupled with a SH-101 analog synthesizer.

The synthesizer section has great bubbly analog sounds. The sequencing portion is great at controlling other CV/Gate equipment including vintage synthesizers and modular eurorack synthesizer. Used by many artists including Aphex Twin, Autechre, and many others.

The unit is in excellent condition and features a modification which bypasses external CV/Gate input signals from the CPU, thereby reducing the lag. Although many companies perform this modification, most of them do so by drilling holes into the sides of the synthesizer.

Included are the original packaging, styrofoam inserts, manuals, and an rare original Roland carrying case."

Top SE-02 track from the playlist below.

Video description:

"My Woman (She) Number One - Alfie ­čÄž Remix

Sensei Hybrid / MSR / Ray / ModMax Phaser—legacy reborn, if I, MSR, have anything to do with it.

That ModMax audio trigger does things VC envs can’t—good things—necessary things, not to mention the 2, 4, 6 stage switch, which is truly theatrical in its sonic gestures.

Full track, and “Liner Notes for a Friend” here:, or just linger at and you’ll bump into it at the top of the SE-02 Playlist.

Really real big swngin' sounding drums (they command a few key areas) straight outta Brooklyn and the Gram: @therealstillphilny Next time I’ll ask you 1st bro; you killin’ it tho.

Rock ’n’ Roll gloriousness sound good to me, and yes that is a clue… “when all my dime dancing is through…” And are you going to ModMax Faire?"

Voltage Modular Euclidean Duel and Ladder Filter Demo

Published on Dec 21, 2018 Voltage Modular

"This video shows off some of the interesting polyrhythms and deep filter sounds the new Euclidean Duel and Ladder Filter modules can produce!

Based off the famous transistor ladder filter patented by Bob Moog in 1966, and made famous in the Moog Modular and Minimoog synthesizers in the 1960s and 1970s, the Ladder Filter module is the definition of raw, raunchy, and powerful. Turn up the Saturation knob for even more overdriven tone. Cutoff, Resonance (or "Emphasis"), and Saturation are all CV-controllable, too!

The Euclidean Duel module is a beast of a trigger-sequencing module, and can generate complex polyrhythms with ease. The Euclidean Duel module may be the most complex and deeply modulatable Euclidean rhythm generating module ever."
