Vermona E2010 Graphic Equalizer - A Studio Secret from behind the Iron Curtain

Published on Jan 2, 2019 HAINBACH

"The not very well known Vermona E2010 has been a staple of my studio for years. Its a very moogy looking graphic equalizer built around an LC filterset, the likes of which you don't see anymore. It adds vibe to anything you run through it and allows for creative bending of any audio material. Here I show what it adds to synths, drums and a full mix."

"This is an older piece of mine. It involves overdubbing a lot of Volca Keys which was my first hardware synth. Nearly all of the sounds in the video are made by it. Most sequences where done using the Volcas sequencer. The quite unruly solo at the end was played by hand on the Volcas Keyboard.

There is no original video footage of the recording and i wanted to practice some video editing."

Julia Govor - Against The Clock

Published on Jan 2, 2019 FACTmagazine

"Julia Govor has lived many musical lives. Starting out as a singer in a well-known military band in Russia, she then spent time as music journalist, before ultimately settling on music production.

After many years playing underground institutions in Moscow, such as the now-closed Arma17, she made her way to New York, where she can now be found billed next to techno legends such as Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin and Sven Väth.

Even though according to Govor, 'for music, there is never enough time', we visited her Brooklyn studio to put her Against The Clock. Using just a synthesizer and a Tempest drum machine, she was able to put together a gorgeous slice of whiplash-inducing techno in just 10 minutes."

WMD SYNCHRODYNE - A demystifying in-depth demo

Published on Jan 2, 2019 WMDevices

"What is the most insane sounding eurorack module ever? How can I make crazy techno sounds and ambient textures with the same module? Do I really need a modular synth? Can't I just make all of the same sounds a hardware synthesizer can with my VSTs? What is the Synchrodyne and what can it do for my music?

If you are asking yourself these questions, you may enjoy this video. If you've heard of the Synchrodyne and have no idea what it is, you may enjoy this video. If you are looking for ways to expand your sonic palette to unheard of realms, you might enjoy this video.
If you like listening to electronic music that doesn't sound like the inside of a Forever 21, you could very well enjoy this video.

The Synchrodyne is a filter for the Eurorack format of modular synthesizers. A crazy cool filter with tons and tons of sonic possibilities as well as the capability to be it's own standalone voice. What makes this filter unique is that it uses a Switched Capacitor design that uses capacitors and switches, controlled by a high speed clock to filter incoming audio.

This module has it's own internal clock VCO that is capable of reaching supersonic frequencies, making it perfect for clocking the filter while processing external sources. However, we really wanted to be able to use this VCO as our main sound source instead of requiring and external oscillator. What we came up with was to use a PLL (Phase Locked Loop) circuit with some Clock Multipliers and Dividers to track our oscillator's frequency while it is in the audible range with the ability to be multiplied to the supersonic frequency necessary for clocking the filter. The PLL circuit made for an radical, very unique sound that we had never hear before.

In this video, Alex talks through each section of the Synchrodyne while providing high quality audio examples of what this module is capable of as well as real world uses in live performance and in the studio. This video is more focused on creating house, techno, and dance music with the Synchrodyne. A showcase of it's ambient sounds will come in another video.

NAMM Leaks: New Akai APC - Stand Alone MPC Crossed with Ableton Push w/ CV?

Spotted this one on who has a link to the manual, and Create Digital Music who has a good write-up on it.

"And here’s the bombshell: Akai taken the APC workflow and even cloned elements of Ableton Live. But this is basically a Live knockoff – not the real thing. Hence the manual refers to “Matrix View,” not Session View, and so on. So even though Ableton could have – arguably even should have – done something like this already, they didn’t. We’ll see if workflow alone is enough but to sway users or whether this will just be a shadow off of the original.

Think MPC Live with clip launching and APC control, not Ableton Live a box. Whether that’s good news to disappointment depends on what you want.

Standalone hardware that does what software does – it’s a funny thing."

The Bateleur VCO-Birdkids simple sound demo in music

Published on Jan 2, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Hi Guys.
I hope you have already cooled down after the new year because I have another movie here using The Bateleur VCO from birdkids.
It's a great, very powerful and musical VCO.
Birdkids is already developing a new Raven but not yet explored are the musical regions of their previous amazing oscillator. FM Through-zero, Glide, PWM, Expander are just a small part of the cool sound possibilities. great octave jump gives the effect of up and down the hill while playing like here. Love this unit, great fun even without bigger modulation, here use with Birdkids Noise Mixer for joins waves sound.

Livestock Electronics BANG // Lo-fi glitchy game inspired wavetable action

Published on Jan 2, 2019 DivKidVideo

"**TIMING NEX / SECTIONS BELOW** Here's the killer glitchy lo-fi goodness of BANG from Livestock Electronics. It's a 10hp digital oscillator with a unique approach to wavetables. Wavetables are made up of multiple waves with odd, even and chunk control. Odd and even control the waveform for the top positive section (odd) and the waveform present on the bottom negative section (even) and can be modulated independently. Chunks has a range of FX depending on the waves from sync like tones to noise injections and more. You can swap out the waves and also use the waveform creation app (free for mac or pc) to create your own waves and just drop those onto the SD card (slot on the front of the module).

Logic Auto Filter for Breath - Mark Steiner - NuEVI

Published on Jan 2, 2019 Mark Steiner

"Demo of my Logic configuration for using the Logic Auto Filter for breath control... including the needed Script Midi Plugin set up (be sure you have Logic or MainStage up to date):

More info:

Free Gift for Logic/Mainstage users:

The "Auto Filter" free Logic plugin (native to Logic) is so warm and has great attacks with breath control.

Use this on any plug in instrument… just set that instrument to always be loud and bright and let this filter sculpt it. And it’s a stereo filter… so cool.

1st one is my fave: no or little res State Variable Filter.

Note that in 2 & 3 I added in a sample delay that just makes this stereo… since the AutoFilter is a true stereo filter… awesomeness.

There are still ways to tweak and make more smooth or add effects. One way is working with the envelope in the AutoFilter or even in the ES2 or other instrument.

But as is… this is great.

I prefer other 3rd party reverbs that cost but using Space Designer here as it’s part of Logic for free.

To add breath cc or any other control (aftertouch etc.) I am using the native script for plugin control via the midi effect “Scripter”. This all is standard in Logic. I just lucky I stumbled on this filter to use as a breath filter and not an auto filter.

Let me know if you find any cool tricks with this.

Tell me if this file loads fine... it's a whole song save for Logic.

Love you all, Happy New Year!!!
