Massive Custom Roland System 700 Modular System

via @unisound_synth

"This is a teaser post while we prep this recently arrived MONSTER customised Roland System 700. This System 700 is like no other as it features two sequencer blocks, additional 20 lab modules and 19 additional standard modules, including RSS patch bay and EQ. This is not an oddly configured System 700 but a custom built behemoth of synthesis that would crush a regular System 700.

Mind blowing provenance behind this unit which will be kept hush for the moment.

Stay tuned as we are currently in the process of testing it and will release high quality pictures along with a full catalogue of the system's components in the coming weeks with pricing.

This is the holy grail of Modular Synthesis and will represent a once in a lifetime opportunity for somebody šŸ˜ "

Rakit Baby8 sequencer controlling 2 Atari punk consoles!

Published on Mar 8, 2019 midierror

"The Rakit stuff is great, here the Baby8 sequencer is sending its output to two atari punk consoles set to different pitches. I made a little breadboard patchbay which allows the signal to be sent to two destinations for melodic richness and detuned madness.

In this quick vid I'm flicking between each of the atari punk consoles before finally playing them together."

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW - SKIP AROUND!!** So here we have an in depth - deep dive - mega tutorial - ultra look ... or whatever other silly name for a demo of the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Modular 400. I'll take you through each module giving some tips and ideas of how to use them (AM synthesis on the VCA is great, linear FM on the sine is great for example) and in-between each section break the video up with patches and examples both playfully dotted around the house playing out of the speaker and with direct recording explaining how to make certain patches.

A Tale of Three Filters | Matt Chadra

Published on Mar 7, 2019 ClavAnother

"What began as a patch to compare some modules on the scope ended in a long-form experiment with three filters from some of my favourite synthesizers, the ARP 2600, the EMS Synthi, and the Oberheim SEM.

The versions I am using here are:
STG Soundlabs Post Lawsuit Lowpass
STG Soundlabs Sea Devils
Doepfer SEM A-106-5

They are each running through the awesome STG .MIX and are being modulated by the STG Graphic Sequencer and Vinicius Electrik ADSR. The single oscillator present here is a Doepfer Basic with all the waveforms mixed.

If you enjoy this kind of thing, please consider Subscribing. Either way, feel free to let me know what you think of it in the comments.


Critter & Guitari - LIGHT-CYCLES for Organelle

Published on Mar 7, 2019 Critter & Guitari

"Author: Kyle Werle in collaboration with Patrick.

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 thought it could be!

LIGHT-CYCLES is a complex sample player. Initially, it will play a sample from start to finish over sixteen stepped-chunks. One knob changes the starting point of the current chunk, adding the new change to the sequence. Another knob changes the source sample for the current chunk, also writing that change to the sequence. This quickly turns into an IDM machine and keeps going with a filter, pitched BPM control, delay controls on the lower keyboard, and stutter effects on the upper keyboard. We start with a simple beat, then abstract our pattern to see how far the patch can go.
