NuEVI, NuRAD, Wind Synth Moog Model D Sounds - Mark Steiner

Published on Feb 18, 2019 Mark Steiner

"NuEVI, NuRAD, Wind Synth Moog Model D iOS Collection

135 analog style sounds on the iPad Model D app. Best sounding/responding analog style app there is!

$95 - to order email me at

***** AND.... Life time, full access to all my released sound collections (past and present) will soon be awarded to 2 people.

Today I sent out the update to my NuEVI/Wind Synth collection for Moog Model D iPad APP, which brought the sound count to 135 and added 2 extra variation banks so you can have all those sounds with half the effects mix, or totally dry (so you may more easily use your own effects). There are also poly-mode patches added to the collection.
This collection is for the VERY best analog style iPad App for wind synthesis. The smoothest attacks and warmest sound I have found. Makes sense it was officially made by Moog. Even can respond to high resolution midi.

The collection is $95.

From now through March 4th, any who purchase the Model D collection, or my Arturia SEM V Plugin collection, will be entered into a drawing to get all the sounds I ever release for no additional charge for life (your life, not mine).

Good chance it will be a VERY small group to draw from, so your chances may be quite good. Small, niche group and many already have these.

To be sure I give proper love to those who already have purchased these from me, I’ll do another drawing from them and award a 2nd such life-time membership.

Thank you all for bringing wonderful music into our world!

Volca Modular Only: Short Song with Six Patches

Published on Feb 18, 2019 Hyper Objeckt

"The Volca Modular is capable of a LOT of different sounds... to help newbies like me learn the ropes, Korg has some patch examples listed on their site. I decided to create a song using only these patches. (links below)

To write this song I started off with a chord progression created by Chord Progression Generator (link below). Then, I used the sequencer on the Volca Modular to record two simple sequences that follow the progression. I also wrote a couple melodies that can be played on the ribbon keys.

This song uses a single synth recorded six times, with a different patch used in each recording. During each recording, I listened to all of the previous recordings while playing. I recorded the percussive patch ("western bongo") first, using the sequencer, to set the tempo. I recorded the most expressive melodic patch ("vibrato") last, to make sure that it fit in with the rest of the song.

Photographic Sound (TX Wiggles 40)

"Instruments used: Arturia Microbrute, Korg Volca Beats, Eurorack modular (for processing), & Danelectro Bass. The audio sample came from a 1950s informational film about photographic sound tracks. I thought it was cool so I did a jam around it."

Metasonix RK5 Dual Low Pass Gate (LMS EE)

Published on Feb 18, 2019 Learning Modular

"Putting this unusual tube-based low pass gate through its paces, including comparing it to "ordinary" low pass gates and showing where to find it sweet spots. In short, this module sounds different than any other LPG I've worked with, and adds a deep thump to a lot of sounds - even stronger than you can hear on this compressed video.

The Krell's Bad Cousins - AE Modular Synth Patch Challenge 07 #TTNM

Published on Feb 18, 2019

"This is an experiment for the AE Modular Patch Challenge #07 :) This time we were supposed to look into Krell patches. I don't have all the ingredients for that in my rack, so I made this thing, based on the heavily random alien soundscapes. My alien creatures are quite tough and flatulent, I'm afraid. I multi-tracked a slow droney part on top, to make it a little mellower. More info here:

Clavia Nord Lead 1(1995-97) Retro Review and Tutorial

Published on Feb 18, 2019 ChrisLody

"This is my Clavia Nord Lead 1, an early virtual analog synthesizer from 1996. The first Nord Lead was manufactured between 1995-1997 and originally came in a 4 voice version which was later supplemented with an expansion and an updated 12 voice version that had the same functionality as the expanded synth. I'll show you how to use most of the functions, showing how the oscillators and filters sound and talking about some of it's strengths and weaknesses."

1984 Casio PT-7 - Analog Rhythm Machine with Digital Keyboard w/ Original Box

via this auction

"The extremely rare Casio PT-7. A very unique and beautiful design by Casio.

It has an analog rhythm machine and a digital keyboard!

This particular PT-7 is in excellent cosmetic condition, but the keyboard has some issues. The lowest notes on the keyboard do not function, and it is stuck on one sound (piano, I believe). However, the rhythm machine portion of this PT-7 works perfectly. Includes original box."

MODX performance using FM-X engine only with screen detail camera

Published on Feb 18, 2019 thebrackett

"MODX performance built completely out of the FM-X synth engine and using the MODX's internal ARPS for the rhythm section.
Using an envelope follower that is taking input from the kick channel to create side-chain type ducking.

Experimenting with using hybrid camera approach so it's easier to see what I'm up to on the synth itself. Let me know what you think!"

SELF PATCHED! Audio Damage Dimensions // Saturated reberb textures & screaming delay lines

Published on Feb 18, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Dimensions from Audio Damage is a DSP based chorus effect and patching the audio back on itself and pushing the feedback setting causes the delay lines to feedback and create saturated reverberant sounds that would be lovely re-pitched / tuned and put into a sampler to play some chord tones wth, so if you're reading this ... DO THAT then show me the results. :)"

STG Soundlabs TTSH Lizard Modular Synth | Matt Chadra

Published on Feb 17, 2019 ClavAnother

"An arpeggiated patch played from the Novation 61SL MKIII. I'm running the TTSH oscillators into the STG Post Lawsuit Lowpass Filter; my TTSH has the Moog filter in it currently, so it was cool to sub the ARP filter in. I am using the Vinicius Brazil Multiwaves LFOs to modulate the filter frequency and amount, and to trigger the STG Envelope Generator."
