NAMM 2019: MOK Waverazor Module


Published on Jan 26, 2019 CatSynth TV

"Taiho Yamada of MOK demonstrates the new Waverazor module at NAMM 2019.

'The Waverazor Dual Oscillator module brings our patent-pending oscillator design to Eurorack format. Waverazor's wave slicing synthesis presents a novel approach that splices waveforms into twisted and aggressive timbres. Featuring new sound generation techniques like Multi-Sync and Mutant AM, the Waverazor oscillator is perfect for biting leads, glitched-out basses, cinematic pads and everything in between.'

"One Waverazor oscillator can contain up to 16 wave slices, creating a multi-segment "Frankenstein" waveform that produces extended harmonic content. Each individual slice has independent control over wave pitch, volume, phase and DC offset, allowing a single oscillator to contain a multitude of timbral colors. Even the "Razor" itself can be adjusted, with parameters for its own slice frequency, step size multiplier and duty cycle."

NAMM 2019: Rossum Electro-Music Trident [Episode 116]


Published on Jan 26, 2019 CatSynth TV

"Dave Rossum of Rossum Electro-Music gives us a demo of the new Trident module, a complex oscillator with multiple waveshaping functions, and a unique function called "Zing Modulation".

"That magic is what we call Zing Modulation. Each of the Modulation Oscillators can modulate each of the Carrier outputs in an amount controlled by the Zing parameter. Zing Modulation is mathematically akin to ring modulation, but due to the synchronization of the oscillators (when an oscillator’s Sync button is on), the aharmonic sum and difference sidetones of ring modulation transform into complex but purely harmonic overtone spectra, which vary dynamically and dramatically with the frequency and waveshape modulations of the modulation oscillators. Each change in the Modulation Oscillator parameters – Frequency, Symmetry, Waveshape, Zing, and (in the case of Modulation Oscillator 2) Phase – will have a different effect on the timbre of each of the three Carrier waveshape outputs.

When the modulation oscillators are set to track the carrier oscillator, the waveshape will remain constant as the carrier frequency changes. In this case the overtone structure is determined by the settings and CV modulations of the modulation oscillators. If instead the modulation oscillators do not track the carrier, some of the overtone structure will vary relative to the carrier frequency."

Heavily Modded Deep Bass Nine


Published on Jan 26, 2019 Stereoping

"Demo for my Analogue Solutions Deep Bass Nine (DB9) with many useful mods, drums from Pearl SC-40. It's still not a 303, no. But it's much more useful now.

While the DB9 got a nice CEM3340 oscillator (like Roland's SH-101) there are some 'features' of the DB9 which i did not really love. I made lots of changes to lift it on a more useful level. Some mods are simple like replacing resistors with pots (glidetime, keytracking) or changing values (cutoff range, modwheel range on cutoff). Others need some additional electronic parts (PWM, Octave-switches). The most elaborate was to 'repair' the glide. It is normally engaged by CC#65 and not(!) by legato played notes. I had to add a 2nd midi interface to fix this - for the benefit of an additional feature: permanently activating or 'muting' glide and accent by midi notes sent on another midichannel. The video shows most of the mods. I also offer an article on my website with schmatics and additional infos on all the mods i made on the DB9:

WALDORF PULSE + (PLUS) SN 96240276


via this auction

"The Pulse has V. C. O.'s . Voltage controlled Oscillators , pure analog !

Wolfram Franke at Waldorf says:
the three waveforms are made differently, and only have one thing in common -- they aren't processed by a D/A converter. The oscillators are not digital, but analogue. The pulse waveform is controlled digitally; the clock stipulates when the pulse waveform has to be at its maximum or minimum point. If you use pulse width modulation or cross modulation, this is also generated by the clock itself. The clock has only a 0 and 1 position, so the Pulse's cross modulation is mathematically identical with ring modulation. The sawtooth waveform is voltage-controlled; the voltage is generated from the D/A-converted clock signal, with additional parts creating the ramp. The triangular waveform is the most complex one; it's a combination between the sawtooth waveform and additional parts that process the down-ramp.

The PULSE sounds different because it is newly engineered for MIDI control of everything, pre-NRPN. It is far more stable than 70's analogs.
Yet with correct programming this thing can sound HUGER THAN A MINIMOOG when you use the LFO's and MOD properly. The Pulse's VCOs are THICK."

Syntecno TeeBee Mark III Analog Synth


via this auction

"A really great-sounding synth with an all-analog signal path based on the the Roland TB303. It also features some cool and uncommon MIDI/CV features that might come in handy depending on your set up, including 2-channel MIDI merger and four channels of MIDI to CV/Gate conversion that can be set to function with either V/Oct ot V/Hz synths with either of the two common trigger types. If you have old Korg and Yamaha synths lying around this thing will let you play four of them via MIDI. Definitely worth looking up the manual online to read about how it can be worked into your setup.

And, of course, it produces great TB-303-esque tones and slides that you can access via a MIDI keyboard or MIDI sequencer. This Mark III version includes a Korg MS-20 style ring modulator in addition to the usual TB-303 saw and square waves. The filter sounds amazing. It's a very solidly built 1U rack unit with probably the most sturdy knobs I've ever gotten my hands on.

Ultimately, this is a wonderful unit if your starting point is MIDI (DAW, sequencer, etc.) and you want to access great analog sounds, both with this unit itself and with vintage synths that aren't already MIDI controllable."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 w/ Kenton MIDI


via this auction

"The rev 2 used the earlier SSM chips that sound to my ears so much better than the later Curtis chips. The problem with the SSM chips (and probably why they went to the Curtis chips) and more generally the rev 2 was the tuning stability. This is why bands quite often used the rev 2 in the studio but the rev 3 on tour (Talking Heads, Japan etc). This problem has been resolved in the rev2 thanks to the masterly work of James at Synth Repair Services...there are now 8 little pixies running around inside making sure the tuning is just tickety-boo (well thats what James told me)

for the more technically minded, the power supply was upgraded (see toroidal photo), all presets replaced, and very high precision resistors used in DAC circuit. There is probably more to this mod but thats all I could work out from James Walker(Synth Repair Services).

I have been told that this was one of the earlier Prophet 5 rev 2's as it has a smooth panel surface, I have not been able to verify this. If anyone out there is more knowledgeable on the different rev2's it would be great if they could let me know if this is true or not."

Note this is the first post to feature Second Sound. Their ACO100 audio-controlled oscillator is used by Sonicsmith in their audio-controlled synthesizer products, the ConVertor and the Squaver P1.

via: https://secondsound.com:

The Story Behind Second Sound

We consider Second Sound to represent a “new revolution in synthesized sound” quite simply because we are redefining the way sound synthesis is done. Rather than generating sound waveforms electronically “from nothing” as both traditional analog and digital synthesizers do, our synthesizer transforms existing sounds based on fundamental characteristics of the sounds played by musicians on real instruments, such as their frequency and amplitude.

The human voice, a note played on a violin, piano, trumpet, or any of a wide class of musical instruments, all can be used as the source signal for our music synthesis technology, which converts these sounds into either Control Voltage (CV) for controlling analog synthesizers or MIDI for controlling digital synths.

Published on Jan 26, 2019 VJ FRANZ K

"My 1998 album was called 'Vokoder', because I have always liked this sound a lot! Here's Berhninger's new remake of a classic vocoder keyboard. It does sound different than digital vocoders, and it's not "Auto Tune" - that's something different.

This recording was the audio in the room (see my other videos with Direct Audio) so you can also hear the sound of the keys: The Step Sequencer buttons are "clicky" with a slightly soft action. The other buttons are standard rubber "groovebox" feel. The knobs have a solid feel, and are rubberized. The unit is metal and plastic with a medium weight. (Better than playing a drum machine that's too small! B - ) Yes, the 808 has those clicky RS sounds, which are one of my favorites."
