Foreclosure of the ashes - modular in the cave 6 (eurorack modular synthesizer trance ambient jam)

Published on Mar 4, 2019 Modular in the cave

"A little jam in a secret location on the island, known only to a few people. It's an hidden limestone quarry facing the West coast of Sicily where you can see Marsala. To reach it you have to stray from the path and climb down a cliff. The quarry is referred to as "the temple", by it massive square columns. The rooms are huge, and once you exit the quarry, you have direct access to a beautiful sea that, just like Bue Marino, being on the same trait of coast, shines from the underwater limestone planes. A peculiar rock head had been carved by unknowns and guards the spot. Massive rocks has fallen apart from the quarry roof and settled on the rock slide use to load the brick on the ancient boats. I use Erica synths pico voice and a Pittsburgh sv1. 2 pico dsp, a black hole dsp, blue lantern sir mixalot, expert sleepers disting mk4 compression algorithm on the master"

RedSound DarkStar XP2 - 8 voice / 5 part VA polysynth SN 00733

via this auction

"This is the “mk2” version with 2 pairs of 1/4” outs and external input, running OS ROM 1.11 as shown.

Totally ingenious synth and interface.
Each of the 5 parts can be assigned its own instrument specific demo pattern (baseline, lead, percussion, etc). You can pan each part and audition them from the front panel.

Filters are some of the gooiest early 2000s and tone is full of character even if not all the presets are your thing.

Almost every feature is available immediately from dedicated controls or a shift function. Most of the shift functions are on the panel but a handful take a peek in the manual before they become 2nd nature."

"Free homemade wood ends included along with the plastic factory cheeks.
The wood ends aren’t anything special but they raise the angle which I preferred to being hunched over it in more traditional MPC style. One wood piece is split part way but could be woodglued or replaced.

Proteus 2000 series had some of the best quality and crafted sounds of its time. This is the desktop version of the 2500 with thick velocity sensitive pads in a keyboard layout."

Vermona randomRhythm-randomized trigger sequencer in use.

Published on Mar 4, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Hi guys!
I have a dense little video and some fun with random triggering.
for this I used randomRhythm from Vermona as a trigger for drums
but also as the second trigger for the Minimod Contour generators including the Minimod voice from AJH Synth for opening the gate. it changes the rhythm and melodies and it is quite a random game.
random Rhythm is a randomized trigger sequencer and clock divider.
also for a sound hat I used twinCussion from Vermona is a great double drum module."

Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with PROTOVOLT

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Lord of synths, shredder of guitars, and ace of percussion (except the bells), Protovolt mixes modern vision with 80s nostalgia into a style that’s equal parts John Carpenter and John Hughes. With influences ranging from the arcade to the silver screen to retro technology, he lends his style to film scores, artist collaborations, and cross-genre production.

We chatted with Protovolt on how he’s using the Prophet X in his music"

ELEKTRONIKA EM25 - Vintage Analog String synthesizer USSR Soviet Russian

Published on Mar 4, 2019 GLvintageSHOP

"EM-25 is an interesting Soviet string-synth that looks and feels like a curious cross between Moog Opus 3, Yamaha SK15 and ARP Solina. Like other Soviet synths, has got a distinct sound of its own and can easily compete with synths that have grown to become classics.

Organ has great vibe - I like its etheral and gentle vibe in upper register. It has one percussive drawbar (again a plus for total tonal variety).
EM-25's organ is quite interesting, potent and woody with full registers, almost acoustic sounding. With a touch of LXP-1 reverb, a single drawbar turns into real Cathedral organ!

Synth section (called brass on EM-25) is VCO fixed preset on both, with full filter section - but only one filter for all voices.

All said, EM-25 is unique and rare and a real stringer.

Korg MS-20 Dirty Bass And Abstract Bleeps - Watch Your Bassbins and tweeters! MS-20M Kit

Published on Mar 4, 2019 Surface Noises

"Experiment using Reaktor Blocks to send CV, sequences and audio rate modulation to oscillators and low pass filter, whilst using the MS-20 high pass filter to generate a dirty bass. You can get quite a lot of sounds out of one synth using Reaktor!

This needs proper speakers to hear the bass - but there are a few loud peaks so watch your tweeters.

Unprocessed so you can the filthy MS-20 low end in all its glory. The patch uses the first version of Korg's famous filter."

Sampler trick: how to create multi-length “tape loops” (shown on Digitakt/Model Samples by Elektron)

Published on Mar 4, 2019 loopop


0:00 Intro
0:50 The first loop
1:25 Phased 2nd loop
2:10 Adding texture
2:30 Adding an LFO
3:50 More loops...
4:00 Playing with levels
4:45 Adding effects
5:25 Rhythmic phasing
7:35 More ideas

"This video explains a neat little sampler trick that lets you create music by *ignoring* a sampler’s sequencer.

In the early 60’s groundbreaking composer Steve Reich ( pioneered the technique of using different length tape loops (and later musical patterns) in composition. The idea is that two short loops, either identical but one slightly shorter than the other, or completely different, drift in and out of phase to create textures, patterns and rhythms that weren’t there before. This tape loop technique is used by William Basisnki ( ) to create wonderful sonic soundscapes, and in the lovely “Walkman Symphony” by Amulets (

In this video I replicate the experience digitally by using a little trick which ignores the sequencer on modern day samplers, in order to create similar multi-length loop textures and patterns.

It turns out some samplers (like Elektron Digitakt and Model:Samples shown in this video) will let sample-loops play continuously, regardless of whether the sequencer is active or not . As long as you DON’T use the built-in sequencer to retrigger the samples, and you create different length loops, the samples will loop in and out of phase with each other and recreate the phasing tape loop experience quite nicely. In these particular samplers, all the effects and LFOs are still fully functional despite the sequencer not running, so you can use them while your loops are running.

A huge thanks to Yehezkel Raz for turning me on to these composers and for playing the sample you hear in the Digitakt portion of this beautiful Danksi song:"

Tangerine Dream's "Vengeance" from Sorcerer (1977) on the Baloran The River synthesizer

Published on Mar 3, 2019 Sean Christopher - Evoking Emotion Through Music

"I thought I'd see if the Baloran The River synth was good with vintage sounds, and IMO it definitely delivered. 'Vengeance' is a track by Tangerine Dream on the 1977 film, Sorcerer.

Sorcerer is a 1977 American thriller film directed and produced by William Friedkin and starring Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal, and Amidou. The second adaptation of Georges Arnaud's 1950 French novel Le Salaire de la peur. The plot depicts four outcasts from varied backgrounds meeting in a South American village, where they are assigned to transport cargoes of aged, poorly kept dynamite that is so unstable that it is 'sweating' its dangerous basic ingredient, nitroglycerin.

Hopefully you enjoyed this track as much as I had making it."
