Strymon Magneto Echo Mode [Episode 123]

Published on Mar 2, 2019 CatSynth TV

"We explore the Magneto four-head tape echo and looper module from Strymon, focusing specifically on the echo mode. We examine the basic functions of the record and playback heads, as well as the various quality controls such as Tape Age, Crinkle and Wow&Flutter.

The Pluck module from 2hp is used as a sound source for all examples in this video.

Packed with powerful features while maintaining intuitive playability, Magneto is a stereo multi-head tape delay that also functions as a looper, phrase sampler, vintage spring reverb unit, phase-aligned clock multiplier, chaotic oscillator, zero latency sub-oscillator and more, with extensive CV I/O.

Jamsession Roland TR-808, SH-101, Juno-60, JP-8 and Modal 002

Published on Mar 2, 2019 synthlegends

"Life and improvised, no overdubbing.

I used a Roland TR-808 with all three trigger outs to control
- the SH-101 for the lead line,
- the JUNO-60 for bass sequence and
- the JUPITER-8 for gated pad (filter on CF in).

I played also a Modal Electronics 002 for the Pad sound.

I only used effects for the SH-101 (delay from KORG DW-8000 E, Chorus from BOSS CE-2w and Reverb from Strymon Big Sky).

I hope, you enjoy this video. Acutally I made it in about only half an hour. Its very inspiring to work without Midi and a DAW, just record life with the internal sequencer of the TR-808."

Eventide H3000 : String String Modeller

Published on Mar 2, 2019 100 Things I Do

"I keep getting asked to feature the H3000 a little more. It's a truly mythic beast and even today there is no plugin that covers all the features of the H3000 (not that I know of anyway). I thought we would take a look at the String Modeller algorithm keeping it synth related, I'm guessing its based on Eventides own take on Karplus–Strong as it has all the same components, noise, resonance, delay lines etc..."

Moog Sub37 Analog Synthesizer Ableton Instrument Pack

Published on Mar 2, 2019 Expanding Sound

"Moog Sub37 Ableton Pack

The Sub37 is a modern day Moog with a lot of vintage vibe worked into its design. I love the sound of it. The classic Moog filter is huge and the 2 LFOs make for some great modulation. You can make huge bass tones and tearing leads that cut right through your mix.

One of the most satisfying things about making Ableton instruments out of my synths is the ability to turn a monosynth into a polyphonic monster! While there are a couple preset instruments in this pack I set to mono mode, the majority of the Moog Sub37 Ableton pack is 6 voices or more. It is true that the Sub37 is Duophonic. But splitting the oscillators between two notes can leave the sound a little thin. With this Sub37 pack that is no longer an issue. Beautiful pads and sustaining key melodies are now available. It sounds great."

303 DAY: DJ Pierre and the Roland TB-303

Published on Mar 2, 2019 RolandChannel

Looks like this went up a day early. Watch it while you can.

"Today on #303DAY, we celebrate the iconic silver box that defined the genre of acid house—the Roland TB-303 Bassline Synthesizer. With an unmistakable sonic signature brimming with warmth, energy and character, the iconic silver box defined the acid house movement of the late 1980s.

Widely misunderstood when launched in 1981, the true revolution began several years later when electronic music producers rediscovered the quirky box, unleashing the hypnotic, liquid sound that captivated a generation. While we may never really understand why the 303 sound makes people want to dance, there is no denying its power, influence, and unwavering ability to get a party started. It just works, even after all this time."

Mutable Instruments Frames w/ Custom Green Acrylic Faceplate

via this auction

"Mutable Instruments Frames - handmade in France with custom green acrylic faceplate. Plenty of demo videos online to show what a powerhouse of a module this is - 4 channels that can be animated and interpolated amongst one another. Use it as a mixer, sequencer, FX router, it’s limitless.

You can also use the static +5 or +10V option so the knobs deliver DC offsets and interpolate between those values with the big center knob!"

"One of Klaus Schulze’s fav live synths. Check out example video here and others. Analog morph seq is incredible and can trigger external MIDI gear.

Includes 2.01f OS ROM and factory power supply. All controls work

Notes: Very good condition with light wear 1 knob cap is chipped, and a couple of lines of pixels on the LCD take 10 mins to warm up then work fine.

I’m including a replacement display I bought but never installed since I got used to letting it warm up. Also including a set of 10 new encoders to extend life and joy of this 19-20 yr old synth."

3x Rotary Wheels
10x SPST Switches
1x SPDT Switch

via this auction

"Onboard sounds compared to M1 and D-50 synthesizers.


40 Modifications via:
3x Rotary Wheels *
11x SPDT (on-off-on) Switches.

* Each Rotary Wheel has 6 bend points on a 12 point rotation (6x on and 6x off positions).
Therefore as you rotate the switch clockwise: 12noon = off, 1pm = bend point 1, 2pm = off, 3pm = bend point 2, 4pm = off, 5pm = bend point 3 etc etc...

These allow for a highly intuitive interaction with the circuit bent interface in real time, and can be employed alone or in combination with other bends to (potentially) create countless tonal, rhythmic, textural and melodic variations (depending upon application)."

"Last of the great Prophet synths. OS 1.2, new back light, 4 oscillators, Curtis analogue filters, inspirational and versatile.

You can load you own waveforms into it via midi sample dump standard, combine and edit them for massive patches. Sits in the mix like no other synth can.

Curtis 5530 multiplex sample and hold clones are now in production, so years and years of hit making still left in this beast. That was a previous maintenance concern but is no longer an issue.

Comes with mint condition original manual, Prophet VS cover and brand new Synth Taste custom low heat power supply from Germany."

Critter & Guitari - 16 Step Drum Machine for Organelle

Published on Mar 1, 2019 Critter & Guitari

"Patch Author: callmesam
This is one of thirteen user-made patches we're showcasing! The Organelle is full of possibilities waiting to be explored and shared. Each patch in this series is a unique approach to an instrument or effect - the result of the contributor working with the Organelle to make their vision a reality! The icing of this musical cake is that the patches have been shared so others may explore and create! Thanks to all the creators making the Organelle more than we hoped it could be!

This unique step sequencer uses the Organelle's keys to activate steps. Use the knobs to switch drum sound, tempo and add reverb. Visualize the sequence on the Organelle screen, showing each bar broken into four lines. To use this sequencer with your own sounds, swap the samples in the patch folder. In this clip, we started with a complex beat and broke it down to a streamlined groove.
