Bongo Peak

Published on Jan 31, 2019 verstaerker

"i created some bongo-esque sound using the Novation Peak only ... no external Effekts have been used
sequenced from an Doepfer MAQ16/3 - i'm using a Lemur App to control the Gates on the MAQ (as it lacks hardware buttons for that)"


Novation Peak covering Buchla bongos. If you go back far enough, there was a bongo meme where the majority of new Buchla 200e videos were essentially bongo sounds. People wondering why anyone would spend ~$20k to just to make bongo tracks. :)

MOOG Modular Synthesizer Evolving Patches

Published on Jan 31, 2019 OFR

"A simple evolving patch on the Moog (plus a few DotCom etc modules up top). I've been enjoying programming fairly non-typical setups on the Moog using the Filter Coupler and so on. I will be posting more soon."

All the Teenage Engineering Synths for The Last Jam for #jamuary2019 (day31) feat. Tristan Perich

Published on Jan 31, 2019 amenemo1010

The 1-bit synth! The first time it was featured was back on August 31, 2005, just over a month after this version of the site launced.

"For this last jam I wanted to surprise you by putting together all the gears used during this period of #jamuary2019 and to surprise a rare and unavailable piece: the 1-bit symphony of Tristan Perich: programmed entirely in assembly code and inserted into a microchip to make the listening approach even more physical and direct."

Rare Waves Hydronium – Anode Sludge (synth demo)

Published on Jan 31, 2019 EA78751

"Rare Waves Hydronium is a great sounding analog synthesizer with MIDI + CV-Gate control, and lots of patchability. Its new for 2019, created and supported by Eric Archer behind the Grendel brand. Hydronium comes as a DIY kit or pre-assembled, available now at in tabletop format and a Eurorack version is in the works.

This demo track focuses on heavy tones in the stoner doom vein. The black Hydronium has a distortion pedal patched into its effects loop to bring out some lovely nasty crusty crunchy sounds. This synth’s effects loop is positioned between its VCF and VCA, which is a sweet spot for distortion, fuzz, and overdrive. It lets you use a distortion pedal for waveshaping without sacrificing the synth’s dynamic range or increasing the background noise. The yellow Hydronium is playing through a spring reverb 100% wet, and has an external LFO patched to its VCF CV input for psychedelic lead sounds. The blue box is dry in the mix."

"Elevation: 99" a TR-8S song by gattobus

Published on Jan 31, 2019 gattobus

"This song was created using only TR-8S, single pattern, 4 bars.
I loaded some external samples, like a pad, a Shepard tone and some blips from my modular. The other sounds (Bass, Drums and arpeggio) are from the internal synth engine.
I hope you like it! I had a lot of fun playing it! :-)"

MacBeth M5/M5N Owner's Manual & Patch Book by John Reisenman

via this auction

"An owner’s manual/patch book was never made for the MacBeth M5 or M5N. Because Ken MacBeth was inspired by the ARP 2600, this owner’s manual/patch book begins with an 18-page side by side comparison with color photos and diagrams of the M5 and the ARP. Every socket, slider, rotary dial and switch of the M5 are explained in detail with pictures and text. Page 20 provides a list of 50 patch diagrams contained in the patch book section.

Although the ARP 2600 patch book can be used with limited success to create sounds on the M5, the substantial differences between these 2 semi-modular synthesizers justifies the M5 having its own. These differences consist not only in “normalized” connections vs. required patching, but in parameters that are unique to each synth. I spent just over a year on this project, communicating periodically with Ken MacBeth, who assured me that there were no circuit changes in the M5N compared to the original M5. Thus, the patch book diagrams apply equally to both models. For ease of use, each patch diagram is accompanied by a color-coded explanatory text corresponding to the referenced parameters shown in the same color. The patch diagrams are designed to illustrate both the sound and functionality of the M5/M5N. Re-creating all 50 diagrams will provide a solid foundation in semi-modular synth programming on the M5/M5N. There is also an appendix containing a 7-page list of all the M5/M5N specifications, with an explanation of every function.

This M5/M5N Owner’s Manual and Patch Book is made to order and printed on demand. Free shipping within the continental USA via media mail. International shipping costs apply. (Contact me regarding international shipping)"

"Sequential Circuits Pro One installed new CPU which gives you way more steps for the sequencer AND keeps your stored sequences after you turn it off and doesnt erase it like all the old ones do. Still have old CPU, plug in play easy to reinstall.

Also upgraded to new Fatar keybed. The old jwire keybed worked, but this gives a brand new feel and I still have the old one.

Also comes with custom wooden black case!

It has small 60cycle hum typical on some models but hum eliminator gets rid of the ground loop and I've always used one."

It uses an Arduino and the amazing Robertsonics WavTrigger fed through an analog low pass filter. I still need to build the wood case but since it should take me some time to make things right, I thought it was a good moment to release a first demo!

By the way there is two songs to recognize! ;)"

Scales Learning Scales

Published on Jan 31, 2019 Intellijel

"Scales is an 8hp dual-channel note quantizer and step sequencer. Fundamentally, it takes an input voltage, quantizes it to notes in a user-defined scale, and sends that quantized voltage to an output, where you can use it as a melodic pitch source for oscillators or any other module that expects to see discreet note values at its input.

Scales goes far beyond the fundamental, allowing you unprecedented control of the pitches and intervals hiding inside your control voltages; turn LFO’s into arpeggiators; random voltages into harmonic counterpoint; and unquantized external CV sequencers into chromatically tuned note sequencers.

Quantization can be locked to an incoming trigger. There are a number of trigger output options as well, ranging from no triggering (good for pitch shifting drones); through triggers that sync with either of the two outputs (or both); to a trigger or gate transmitted in sync with one sent to the module’s TRIG input."

Akai Force vs Ableton Push 2: Which is better for you?

Published on Jan 31, 2019 loopop

"While at Winter NAMM 2019, Akai agreed to a "no question off the table" interview about their new Force standalone clip launcher/groovebox/sampler.

Alongside this interview I compare Force's features to Ableton Push (and occasionally Maschine MK3).

Here's a link to the video I made comparing Push 2 to Maschine MK3: [posted here]

The comparison is between Force and what Push 2 can do as a controller, not the entirety of Ableton Live as a DAW, which is of course substantially more comprehensive.

Frap Tools Falistri - complex oscillator "first patch"

Published on Jan 31, 2019 DivKidVideo

"So here's my first patch with the Falistri from Frap Tools. It's always nice to share my literal first patch and experience with modules before doing more in-depth demos and explanations. This first patch is using both function generators in looping mode, at audio rates, to create a dual oscillator and complex oscillator series of sounds. The Ring Mod and VCA section below takes normalled versions of the oscillator outputs and I have FM patched between both oscillators (function generators as oscillators) for some cross mod / x mod."

Lifeforms Primary Oscillator-Pittsburgh Modular Synthesis Demo

Published on Jan 31, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Hello Frinds.
I have another small movie showing Primary Oscillator-Pittsburgh Modular Synthesis. I used here with the sequencer one free sequence with the addition of Black Hole DSP-Erica Synths reverb to emphasize the beautiful melody and the second sequence faster with the addition of the Black Dual VCF -Erica Synths filter and a little addition of resonance.
This oscillator works well in many situations, for solid bass, for charmonics bass, lead, for beautiful highs tones of melody or ambient and textures, timbre change gives a wide spectrum of synthesis in combination with fragments or Blade function gives completely good results, sometimes behaving as chorus which affects very nicely for sound"

A Strange Happening // Buchla Music Easel + Waldorf Quantum + Moog Grandmother

Published on Jan 31, 2019 Genshi Media Group

Nice mix of synths there.


A Strange Happening - is a silly little improvisation between 3 very different synths; the Buchla Music Easel (with both Oscillators sequenced via the Malekko Varigate 4+) the Waldorf Quantum (using my own Custom Wavetables) and the Moog Grandmother. Effects used on the Music Easel were the TC Electronic Mimio for stereo width and the Empress Effects Echosystem Dual Delay. On the Grandmother I was using the Strymon El Capistan, and on the Quantum just the internal effects."
