Synth Stuff Ep. 54 - Alesis Micron

Published on Feb 10, 2019 tritonrecordings

"Remember when Alesis made synths? The Micron is a baby version of the Ion, the flagship virtual analog synth from Alesis which was just below their top tier Andromeda A6. It's the same exact engine as the Ion but with far less physical controls. Honestly, it sounds much like any other virtual analog synth from the early 2000's but it has a chic look to it and I imagine it turned many heads of people considering MicroKorgs."

Vermona '14/Hildegard von Bingen: "O Pastor Animarum"

Published on Feb 10, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Hildegard's fantastic 'O Pastor Animarum', here performed on the Vermona '14. Stunning tone. Information that may be of interest: 'Gregorian' refers to Pope Gregory: not a musician himself, but it was thanks to him that we now have written music. He was aware the problems created by trying to memorise numerous melodies, hence the want for the codification of music.

In its initial stages, Gregorian chant was monosyllabic (one note per syllable). All notes were also sung at the same volume. The reason being: no word was considered less/more important than any other - and the music was to reflect this.

To the modern ear, this can sound 'empty', given (culturally) we are used to very thick textures, and 'emotion' in music is normally equated with large dynamic variation (at least since the Romantic era).

Many contemporary performances of early Gregorian chant drift into the contemporary vein i.e dynamic variation etc. In the strictest sense, these performances are inauthentic. Nice to listen to, of course - but inauthentic to the performance practice of the time.

To my ears, plainsong + synth is a winner of a combination.

PS you may also notice that the synth is tuned below A440 (you'll see the 'master tune' dial is below 12 o' clock); A440 is a relatively recent adoption, hence abandoning this for a tuning more accurately representing the pitch of the era.

I'm thinking of giving a live performance of Gregorian chant on the Vermona in the near future; if it comes to fruition, I'll mention as/when.

All best

Prophet Rev2 Experimental Patch Set From

"The Experimental Patch set for the Prophet Rev2 is a collection of experimental, glitch, special effects, and a few conventional patches. All 128 patches are entirely original creations built from the ground up or through custom morphing software developed for the Rev2. The example sounds were recorded directly from the Rev2 with no overdubbing, or additional processing aside from gain adjustments.

For more information please visit"

"As usual it took me in a different direction, so ended up making this BOC patch from scratch. This synth shines for easy hands on tweaking, only took about 20mins to make.

Sorry about Ken Burns....I couldn't stop him."

SEQ16 - AE Modular Synth Patch Challenge 05 #TTNM

Published on Feb 10, 2019 The Tuesday Night Machines

"This is an experiment for the AE Modular Patch Challenge #05 :) For this challenge we simply had to use a sequencer like the SEQ16 in a patch, so I made it control not just pitch, but also filter cutoff, PWM, logic, and delay time, while playing with its reset state and knob values manually.

It has most basic analog edit parameters. A 24 dB/oct analog VCF (filter) with 4 knobs (Brilliance, CutOff, Resonance, Contour), a single LFO to modulate the VCO or VCF sections and a typical ADSR VCA envelope.
There are preset VCF and VCA settings as well as a Manual mode.

There is also a possibility to split the keyboard to 2 section (with setting up different timbres of sounding)

Input/Output - 1/4 jack

The supply voltage of the unit - 220-230V/50Hz. For use it with 110/127V, a voltage converter is necessary/ not added.

1983 PPG Wave 2.3

via this auction

"Serviced, new backlight, new battery. keyboard bushings supplied, not fitted - i may get around to doing this. OS 8.3 supplied but can provide OS 6 too. Some prefer OS 6 before the LFO, which is computer generated, is further compromised. Voice cards have new trimmers.

2.3 is the same as 2.2 contrary to myths on forums, save it is only 12-bit when utilised with the Waveterm for samples and it has a multimode. The wavetables are 8-bit as on the 2.2. Most of the time you will boot into 2.2 mode. SSM2044 filters, superb sound and huge stereo field."

Excellent sounding reverb and ring modulator.

The unit has had:

Several faders replaced,
VCO sub module swapped out
filter sub module was swapped out
All sub modules to original factory spec.
Power supply was swapped to run from 120v to 240v
As used by Todd Terje, hot chip, etc etc etc etc"

Song-A-Day & #RPM Challenge 10 - 'Time Dilation' on Waldorf Blofeld and Minidisc Ambient

Published on Feb 10, 2019 ChrisLody

"Time to dig out the Waldorf Blofeld and make a bit of dreamy soundtrack, soundscape, ambient sort of music. I don't use the Blofeld enough but I find it particularly good for this kind of thing, though I've barely explored beyond this sort of sound to be honest because it's so responsive as a synth piano when programmed right. A minidisc field recording in a mess hall provides the ambient layer with two layers of Blofeld here."

Delta CEP A - using the Morph-function as a sequencer

Published on Feb 10, 2019 Jörg Schaaf

"The Delta CEP A morph function is based on snapshots. A snapshot is a subprogram within a soundprogram. Snapshots can hold variations of the sound or complete different sounds. The snapshots can then morph from one step to the next. Sequencer addicted users can activate a gate signal for each snapshot and use the morph function for sequences.

The DELTA CEP A is a new semimodular musicsynthesizer with monophonic and paraphonic playmodes, preset memories and snapshot automation. The DELTA CEP A is the perfect starting point into the EURORACK world and will become available soon as desktop standalone synthesizer and EURORACK module. The DELTA CEP A works just out of the box without any cable patching. If you are looking for a EURORACK FX unit or for POLYPHONY within your cabinet, you should also have a closer look as well. Are you curious about connectivity with your other gear? The DELTA CEP A has a MIDI interface and connects to every MIDI gear (MIDI sequencers, Keyboards etc.) The desktop version comes with standard 1/4 inch jack inputs and outputs."
