Analogue Solutions Impulse Command Synthesizer Details

Published on Mar 31, 2019 Analogue Solutions

Additional details are in.

"What is it?

Impulse Command is here!

True STEREO analogue synth / sonic realizer. Perfect for melodic and percussion loops. Very easy (and fun!) to create modular style analogue loops. It’s a complete soundtrack all by itself!

It’s wrong to call it a synthesizer (in fact a new word needs to be invented) because then you get preconceived ideas about what it does. It’s a whole lot more than a synth. It’s also part drum synth, part pattern generator, part modular loop producer.

All its unique features plus the 2 independent LPFs give this machine the ability to produce stereo loops that sound like multiple synths playing at once.

Special features:

Analogue synth: analogue audio and modulation circuits

Stereo / dual filters

This synth can sound like multiple synths all at once

Stereo digital effects (reverb and delay)

16 step analogue sequencer

16 step MIDI Note sequencer

Dynamic internal patch system

ReOrder! feature to create new melodies from the sequencer

Dynamic VCO mix levels


High-quality build

Impulse Command is a compact true analogue synth in a neat, smart, package. When we say ‘real analogue’ we mean that the entire audio path (aside from the post effects of course!) and all modulation are entirely analogue, using circuits based on awesome sounding vintage 1970s designs. Their circuits are not locked down by CPUs. Controls are not quantised and read by CPUs. With the exception of the essential digital elements (that is MIDI conversion, sequencer control and digital delay/reverb), Impulse Command really is analogue and the sound benefit is immediately apparent!"

AJH Synth MiniMod Eurorack Modular jam 'Tornado Down'

Published on Mar 31, 2019 DreamsOfWires

"AJH Synth MiniMod system, Sonic XV, Ring SM, & Frequency Central State 700 filter. Make Noise Pressure Points/Brains, Korg SQ-1 & Arturia Keystep for CV control/sequencing.

Patch breakdown:
Just a simple 4-step pattern controlling 1 MiniMod VCO and Noise into the Ring SM for sub octaves/harmonics, into the Sonic XV diode filter, second row of Pressure Points controlling cutoff. Then, noise from the MiniMod Glide into the State 700 filter, sequenced by the SQ-1 at tuned pitches (which you can hear when I ram up the resonance towards the end). Finally, lead part is 2 VCO's into the MiniMod ladder filter; Keystep modulation touchpad is controlling the amount of filter cutoff and LFO level (FC Wave Runner), which is modulating pitch of the two VCO's. Recorded into AUM on an iPad, with EOS2 reverb, via an iConnectAUDIO4 audio interface. Turn on Subtitles for text commentary.

Video footage: The final flight of the RAF Tornado, viewed outside my local airforce base. When I was a child it was my ambition to fly one of these, and had posters, models, and even computer games of the plane. Alas, I'm too thick, don't respond well to authority, and grew up to be a hippy. Watching them as a pessimistic old man gives me mixed feelings, but I'd still love to fly in one. I'll keep my eye on eBay, I'm sure they'll sell them on there, because eBay claim "Seriously, we have everything!".

Roland Juno 60 with Juno-66 Tubbutec Mod, New Chorus Chips

via this auction

"This Roland Juno 60 is in excellent condition for its age and has recently been overhauled by a professional technician. I had the amazing Juno-66 mod installed, along with ultra-rare MN3009 chorus chips -- the chorus is now crystal quiet! Even some of the best condition Junos tend be noisy when the chorus is engaged -- not this one!

Here's a summary of the work done:
Juno-66 mod by Tubbutec installed. This adds a number of great features, such as portamento, two LFOs, a second ADSR, and detuning, just to name a few! See further below for more details.
New MN3009 chorus chips installed. Noise-free when chorus is engaged.
New LFO Trig switch -- fully operational. A common feature to malfunction.
Replaced old-style soldered-on battery with new coin-style battery. Now easily changeable.
Cleaned everything, including all potentiometers, sliders, and key contacts.
Calibrated all."

Become a patron and see a walk through of this track

#ms20 #KORGmonologue #eurorack

Sorry for the long silence, I have been working hard on finalising a future release.. this track is the final puzzle. Stay tuned for more soon :)

This track really revolves around the ms-20 and monologue, but there are so many small layers and bits all around the place that helps to build a foundation for the melody to rest on. The eurorack takes care of some advanced percussion, noise tools (white noise hhs), plonk for toms, BIA for some metal style percussion. Braids and Rings does some random sequences with washes of clouds and shimmer reverbs.. small textures to help fill the small gaps inbetween the beats.

TR-8S does 707 kick and snare plus some simpler hihats, bass from the volca bass sequenced from digitone. Avalon does what is does best, square melodies adding some delay FX from the analog four.

All in all it feels very uptempo, but only clocking in at 99bpm.. :)

I hope you will enjoy this one!

Butterflies (Sm Pro Audio V-Machine and Teenage Engineering OP-Z Jam)

Published on Mar 31, 2019 Rephazer

"Hi folks, here is a little jam I did using the Teenage Engineering OP-Z only as a midi sequencer for the SM Pro Audio V-Machine which is the only sound source here.

The V-Machine is running 2 instances of NI FM8 for bass and pads, 2 instances of FB Mono/Fury for bass and arp, 2 instances of Samplelord for the strings, drums, piano and bass, 2 delays, 1 reverb and 1 (master) compressor completely maxing out the 1 GHz CPU on it.

I've been fooling around with the V-Machine a lot lately, since I got a second one to see how far I can get without the CPU breaking down which will happen with most (single) plugins. So it was a lot of trial and error (mostly error) to get multiple well performing plugins running on it, but I just love these little plugin player boxes. I am planning on using one V-Machine for VST effects and one V-Machine for VST instruments in future jams :)

Anyway, I hope you like this little jam. Cheers!"

Theme From MASH - Arp Odyssey - 70s Science Fiction SciFi SF Version Ambient Space Music

Published on Mar 30, 2019 WayneJoness

"The theme from MASH as realized using only an Arp Odyssey analog synthesizer. The idea came from my friend science fiction author Ron Rogers who wrote alternate SF lyrics ('Landing on a virgin world, I see the battle flag unfurled'). This was 40 years(!) ago, and Ron suggested I do an arrangement with my new Arp synth. This project was never finished, so when Korg reissued the Arp Odyssey, I picked up the idea again. To keep this very '70s' sounding I used the Odyssey for all instruments, drums, sound effects, etc. Enjoy! And thanks to Ron for the original idea!"

"Oberheim OB-8 Keyboard Synthesizer signed By Tom Oberheim. Manufactured in Los Angeles California.(as they all were). Condition is Used. Very nice condition. 8 voices of pure analog joy.This has the page 2 functions but not the page 2 silkscreening. This unit has the midi interface (in,out,thru) on the wooden side piece. This synth sounds excellent except that sometimes,there is one voice that doesn’t seem to tune properly. And as with a lot of these, the keyboard has a few notes that are intermittent.I had this unit cleaned, tuned and calibrated but that was a few years back. Truth is I really haven’t used it much in the last 10 years...just sat in its case mostly. If my memory serves me correctly, this synth has been in my collection for about 30 years.This piece was made before Oberheim became ECC electronics (see back pic) so it’s an earlier model....I’m guessing 1985 but don’t hold me to it! Was signed by Tom Oberheim himself with a silver sharpie directly on the upper front of the synth(see pics). Comes with the original operators manual and Power cord."

Microtuning on the MicroMonsta Demo

Published on Mar 29, 2019 Ian R

"Playing around with microtunings on the Audiothingies MicroMonsta. I'm new to microtuning so I don't really know what I'm doing but you can hear the strange and scary places you end up in. Nothing too musical here but I like the weird, unresolved sound of these tunings, it'd be great stuff for a soundtrack or ambient work.

All patches were made by me, for better or worse.

The MicroMonsta is great, buy one and support people who make these cool things.

I loaded up the .MID tuning dump files in the MPC 1000 was off to the races. Pretty painless overall once you have the tuning files (finding/making those took a little research and leg work)"

"Weinglas plays the new Haken ContinuuMini for the first time. What a wonderful electronic music instrument! The ContinuuMini shares the awesome sound engine with its bigger brother: the Haken Continuum.

This is just me playing Preset 006 ("Long Farewell") in one take. Sound is from the ContinuuMini only. No additional FX or edits."

Future Sound Systems Portland Percussion Synthesizer

via @FutureSndSystem

"Here it is, in all its glory.
Portland, the first percussion synthesizer from FSS.
Come jam with it at @MachinaBris #TOMORROW!"

The Portland percussion synthesizer has been designed as a drum complement to the Brunswick synthesizer. Like the Brunswick, Portland has been designed with affordability and flexibility in mind, allowing for the ultimate performance from relatively basic electronics. Portland is also presented as a "sandbox" for percussion and drum synthesis, giving several different analogue sound generation and shaping elements in a patchable unit. The elements are normalled together on the patchbay, allowing for minimal patching to arrive at a kit of drum sounds, but this normalling can be overridden for more complex drum sound synthesis.

An update via This Is Not Rocket Science:

"Fenix IV assembling parts
Six more weeks until Superbooth…

We are working hard on the first Fenix IV prototype and alternate between 'this is madness' and 'this is awesome'. Probably both are true.

All the parts has been tried and tested in Experiment Boards 1, 2 and 3. Everything works and we are happy with our sounds and effects. Now these parts have to make a mythical beast. The CPU plug-in boards and filter voice boards are in the mail. Chips are being ordered. Power, midi and plug board are in-house and partially assembled. The tiny headphone board is ready. Our interconnect board – connecting the modules to the jacks and replaces the wiring harness – will be ordered together with big board. Flying in from all over the world, all the pieces are coming together.

"Some clips of the Stereoping Synth Programmer for Roland MKS-80, a hardware alternative to the MPG-80. The video shows how to connect Programmer and MKS-80, twiddling knobs and how the MKS responds, how to access hidden parameters and a minute showing many results of the built in randomizer. Finally you see an example of automating the MKS-80 in a DAW with control change messages making use of the Programmer's built in CC to SysEx translator.

Sequential Circuits Pro-One SN 7229

via this auction

"The Pro-One is an awesome monophonic synth. According to the Pro-One user manual this unit represents one voice of the legendary Prophet-5. Although I would consider it to have a lot more to offer than just one voice of the legendary poly synth. It sounds amazing and is packed full of features. It is a really nice synth with the desirable J-wire keyboard. This could be your chance to own one of only 10,000 produced."
