The Trap...Take Your Production Further! - itijik Toy Piano Playset

Update: video here

"itijik Toy Piano Playset includes:

64 loops
46 one shots
25 Multisampled takes (used for the original Ableton instruments)

Bonus Samples:
2 Recording outtakes for multi sampling (long play)
2 Drones for meditation or experimenting (long play)

Included is an Ableton Live set with 6 variations of multisampled toy piano instruments, all the loops, one shots...and all of the device chains and instruments used to create the sample pack! Here's a peak into some of my process, and now you can modify and save them for your own projects! Each instrument has 2 velocity layers across two octaves, and also come in tuned and original versions...untuned for authentic sloppiness."

"What does this do?
This is a sound generator module with 3 oscillators + noise generator. This module is a complete mini synthesizer that can easily produce snare drum sounds. A 'trigger' signal is patched in order to hit the snare drum. The bottom row contains an internal mixer where you mix in 2 shell generator oscillators, one thud oscillator, and a noise generator.

The Noise generator can be used for your other modules. You can also patch into the discrete transistor vca, breaking the switch jack to replace the noise generator with an external audio signal (synth level).

The Filter on the 'Impact' signal path was carefully designed just for snare drum tone control. It sounds very nice. It will not self oscillate, but the Q control can go very high in frequency.

There is an accent control circuit in order to vary the loudness of the snare drum.

History of the design:

The Asteroid Snare drum started out on bread board as a TR 606 snare drum. That design only contains one oscillator, a transistor based noise generator, and a 'clipper' brute vca. It is a nice efficient old design, but it is too simple and boring. I decided to add (2) of the original oscillators, and replaced the noise generator with a digital based noise generator to make sure all production units were alike. The snare drum still was missing fullness, so I designed an addition oscillator called 'thud'. The poor vca from the original design was removing all the additional harmonics, so that was replaced by a discrete vca, and I added tonal controls to the IMPACT signal, and the THUD signal path.
All of this amounts to about 200+ smt parts. Far exceeding the original design. I don’t think there is another analog snare drum out there with the Asteroid Oomph.

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #61: preenFM2 - Song 2

Published on Jan 9, 2019 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the second song with the preenFM2. It's a 14 voice 4-part multitimbral polyphonic DIY FM generator with 28 FM algorithms from 3 to 6 operators, 7 default and 6 user waveforms, filter, arpeggiator, etc.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
preenFM2 - Alesis Ampliton - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - Sony DPS-V77. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)"

AJH Synth Next Phase // KILLER (and quiet) phase shifting in Eurorack

Published on Jan 9, 2019 DivKidVideo

"So here we have the Next Phase from AJH Synth. A great follow up from the original Mega-Phase 12 from AJH Synth. The next phase is a dual input, stereo output phaser with selectable stages and separately selectable emphasis (resonance) paths. It's all analogue, sounds absolutely lush and is a lot quieter that the original Mega Phase, but for those looking for a bit of noise a mojo you can mix a bit of noise back in which is a nice effect.

NAAD LD4 Flexible Digital Drum Synthesizer

Published on Jan 9, 2019 NAAD

New module from new maker Nishiasakusa Audio Developments -

"'NAAD' first product "LD4" is a compact digital drum synthesizer. The product was designed to fit Eurorack 36HP size. It can also be used as a drum sound module of the eurorack system or as a standalone groove machine. It can also be used as a central machine for rhythm tracks that gives out intense character.

In LD 4 we designed a synthesis architecture specialized for percussion. Instead of sample playback commonly used in recent rhythm machines, it synthesizes all sounds in real time like an analog modeling synthesizer. Pitch Envelope, LP / HP / BP Filter, FM / AM Modulator, Noise Generator, LFO are mounted, it is possible to synthesize a wide range of sounds, from sharp kicks, ethnic metal sounds and experimental electronic sounds making use of modulation. Each section implements an independent envelope generator to realize precise sound creation."

Vintage Roland SH-2000 analog synthesizer with Moog cascade ladder filter SN 557668

via this auction

"Here is your chance to own one of the earliest of Roland's synths. The condition of this is investment grade, it is in amazing aesthetic and functional condition REGARDLESS of its age; not 'considering its age' as we hear so often. I will post some better pictures soon as these are bad.

It's serial # denotes that it would have the Moog filter (pre.578049) The SH2000 is the only Roland synth which used a quite complete clone of the Moog cascade filter. According to several people on Analogue Heaven the SH2000 was the instrument that caused the true infringement of Robert Moogs patent.

This thing sound FAT and makes sense that Fat Boy Slim used it!"

"The special MIDI controller designed for iOS app FieldScaper. Great idea!

It includes a USB64 MidiBlock from Doepfer. The Knobs handles only the 'Current' Oscillator. With the buttons you choose OSC 1 to 3 and set it to the Current Oscillator. It has also buttons for record, play and delete files, open and close Panels. With the Movement Knob in the Middle you can move the in and out markers for the Recorded Sound, to cut or trim it."

Strange Trills: Interval Expansion

Published on Jan 9, 2019

"This video builds on the 'FM Trills' video. [posted hear]

We already discussed using a series of clock pulses to an Exponential FM input to create a trill, as well as using individual gate events from the sequencer to turn the trill on and off for particular steps via a VCA.

Now we will build on this concept by using a second VCA to dynamically change the trill’s interval."
