Piano Phase sequenced on the NerdSEQ

Published on Feb 3, 2019 XOR Electronics

"This is the well known Piano Phase originally by Steve Reich (1967) played on XOR Electronics NerdSEQ Eurorack sequencer.

It starts with the same pattern (00) playing 2 simple voices on 2 tracks. Each step of the 12 note long sequence needs 32 clock pulses to get to the next step. While playing i clone one pattern (00) into a new one (01). Pattern 01 contains now the same sequence. In Pattern 01 I change the groove setting from 32 (W) to 31 (V), so this step needs only 31 clock pulses instead of 32. You can see the decimal number right below. So now this pattern 01 on track 2 plays slightly faster than Pattern 00 on track 1.

XOR Electronics NerdSEQ MIDI early preview

Published on Nov 2, 2018 XOR Electronics

"This is the first preview of the Midi implementation for the NerdSEQ. Generally you can assign up to 6 tracks of the NerdSEQ to Midi while each track can have up to 4 voices Polyphony. Also all midi commands/data like Program Change, Pitchbend, Midi CC and more can be send to any Midi channel.
The Midi implementation is not ready yet and might take a while, but, yes it works and it will be fun!!

Stay tuned..."

The Bateleur VCO /Nerdseq- XOR /Primary Oscillator /PICO DRUMS ,Black Hole DSP -Erica Synths

Published on Feb 3, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Hey Guys !!
Finally some music. This time I used Nerdseq for the bass line that comes from The Bateleur VCO from birdkids
also cowbel and snare are samples from Nerdseq used from an SD card.
The synth melody is also from Nerdseq but I recorded it through midi to Nerdseq and plays the Primary Oscillator module from Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers with added Black Hole DSP- Erica Synths reverb. Kick and hat comes from PICO DRUMS -Erica Synths later after 2:30 I also added one voice similar to Horns this is from PICO VOICE - Erica Synths plus Pico DSP reverb.
It's nicely subtle combined in the mixer tube Fusion Mixer plus Black Stereo Mixer - both from Erica Synths.
It was a nice evening and I recorded this live when the whole sound comes only from my modular system"

Moog Prodigy Prototype Synthesizer SN DD - 07 ?

via this auction

"I believe this may be a prototype of the Moog Prodigy. I'm guessing age from no where later than 1979. Only 1 owner (who is deceased) until I acquired it. Telling details of being a factory prototype are the Prodigy logo with the Moog flag inside the Prodigy's letter "O", same as the Moog logo. On the back of the unit, in the upper left corner, there is a space for the unit's model number (336), but wasn't printed on the vinyl covering. The serial number is DD-07, which is nothing like I've ever seen on a Prodigy. Opening the keyboard up, I found a sticker stating "Property of D+D Eng." "Ident 07". Tested and plays & sounds great. No dirty pots. Great bass sound. Great cabinet wood. The only flaw is the wrinkled vinyl covering. This is one unique unit."

Modded Sequential Circuits Max Synth

via this auction

"This Synth has been modified with the addition of the following features:

• 100 sounds, all downloadable, located in battery-backed RAM

• Note storage increased from about 500 to about 3200

• Unison mode added.

• Three sets of 100 factory sounds in EPROM: 80 Max + 20 Six track Unison factory sounds, 100 Six Track factory sounds, and 100 Multi-Trak factory sounds (without chorus or velocity sensitivity, of course)

• CC parameter changes to current program can be saved to program 99, then copied to any other program

• MIDI receive buffer increased from 64 bytes to 128 bytes

• Removed code that reduced volume of subsequent notes if CC change received while MIDI note with low velocity playing. This a code bug in the original EPROM.

These features were added by upgrading both the EPROM and the type/amount of RAM. The Max shipped with a 128K EPROM and two 2Kx8 SRAM chips. This modified Max has a 256K EPROM and a single 32Kx8 SRAM chip (only 16K is used). The modification is a small PC board which holds the EPROM and NV SRAM. This board plugs into the existing EPROM socket on the Max. Five additional wires connect from the Max main board to the new memory board. In addition, the two SRAM chips on the Max main board have been disabled. See more info by googling 'Sequential Circuits MAX Mod Page - Tauntek'"

Unusual Electronic Music Controllers From KMI At NAMM 2019

"At the 2019 NAMM Show, Keith McMillen Instruments was showing a complete line of unusual music controllers.

Their line is based around 'Smart Fabric', which means that it doesn't rely on movable parts, like most instruments and music gear. The technology also allows the devices to sense a variety of types of touch, allowing the controllers to be used in very expressive ways."

Retro Review & Demo - Waddington's Compute-A-Tune Toy Sequencer

"This is the Waddington's Compute-A-Tune which is a tiny toy sequencer and keyboard that was released, at my best guest, in the late 1970's or early 1980's. Cool little thing I hope you'll agree :D

#Jamuary Day 21 - Waddingtons Compute-A-Tone Toy Sequencer

Published on Jan 21, 2019 ChrisLody

"Day 21 of Jamuary

I have to confess that I made this back on the 5th of Jan as part of Jamuary but made a better tune immediately after. Time is short today though. This was made using only the 1970s maybe 1980s Waddigtons Compute-A-Tune toy sequencer and a 4 track. For me it invokes the sound of cold war number stations, the little musical bits in between all the code. Like something from The Lincolnshire Poacher broadcast."

The piano is played on a Yamaha P115 and the sting sounds are from the Yamaha Cs2x (PII 033 St:Simple preset). Try not to weep, the story works out okay in the end."

Waldorf Quantum - Rain Maker - Pad

Published on Feb 2, 2019 100 Things I Do

"I thought I would share the sound of a pad I created recently, its a mix of wavetable, granular and classic oscillator. I normally do a lot of outboard processing either in the DAW or via Eventide and Lexicon units. In this demo I thought I would do everything on the Quantum and bring it in and out slowly to highlight the way the patch is built. Besides a tad a EQ and compression/limiting this was recorded 100% Quantum.

The depth of the effects section and the quality of the filters (and ability to change routing of filters) opens up a unique world of sound creation!"
