John Bowen Synth Design Solaris OS Update - v1.4.3



Note there are only 5 Solaris synths remaining. via the John Bowen Synth Design forum:

"Released Sun Mar 10, 2019, v1.4.3 OS fixes a few small display things, and adds two new features:

1) Sample Load routine - Instead of loading samples from the System page, as we have done, now the loading is done within the Preset, on Home page 3, parameter named 'SmpPool'. Each preset can now store the sample pool being used. Then, if the user wants to have each preset automatically load the appropriate sample pool when selected, you can set the System page parameter 'LoadSamp' to On, and Save it there as part of the global init file. If this is set to Off, then the user must go to the Home page #3 and press Enter to load the pool. If several presets call up the same pool, the system checks and knows this, so you don't have to load again. Also, it can take quite some time to load the preset in this case. For example, to load the factory Glockenspiel pool takes about 6 seconds.

2) Added a new function, calling it 'Patch Chain'. This appears on Home page #3 as well, in the top row, labeled as 'Patchain'.

Here's the idea - if a Preset has Patch Chain set On, then each of 5 Presets will be loaded into the DSPs, starting with the one farthest away from the selected preset.This means you can have 5 different sounds, one for each DSP, with 2 voices per sound (remember, the 6th DSP is used for the Master FX).

For example, if I have this parameter On for Preset 100, the first preset loaded will be 104, then 103, 102, 101, and lastly 100. That way, Preset 100 is the one that is being displayed on the front panel. However, any edits to any parameter will then go to all 5 Presets. (If you then go to store an edit, it only knows to do that to the current Preset.)

The sequence does not wrap around, i.e., if Preset 125 has Patch Chain On, it can only load 3 of the presets. The selected Preset (the last to load) goes to all remaining DSPs in this case.

How is this useful - with the Sequential 6Trak and Multi-Trak, I could make 2 Unison stacks of 6 different sounds on one key, and you could get some pretty big Unison sounds this way. Another thing I've liked with this is to have the 5 presets similar enough, but with small variances in tuning, cutoff, etc., to give an even more 'analogy' feel or sound. The voices are selected in a 'round robin' mode usually (depending on the Legato and EGReset modes), and so by repeatedly hitting a single key, you can hear each of the 5 DSPs playing 2 voices each per preset.

Obviously, this takes so forethought and planning, and isn't for everyone. Also note - loading 5 DSPs separately takes slightly longer when selecting the Preset.

I hope Solaris owners enjoy these two added features. I am looking forward to more developments in the near future.

-John Bowen"

Moog Matriarch Synthesizer Demos with Mikael Jorgensen & Philip Cornish


Moog Matriarch Synthesizer Demo with Mikael Jorgensen - All Playing, No Talking Published on Apr 25, 2019 Musician's Friend

"Moog Matriarch is a semi-modular, 4-note paraphonic synthesizer and the newest member of the Mother family of synths.

Demoed here by Mikael Jorgensen of Wilco, Matriarch's design is based on some of Bob Moog's most revered circuits. The all-analog signal path features 4 powerful VCOs, dual ladder filters, stereo delay, an arpeggiator and a performance friendly 256-note sequencer.

The 4 VCO design can be played in three distinct modes: 4-note paraphonic, 2-note paraphonic and monophonic. Each oscillator can select from a variety of waveshapes and octaves, allowing you to create incredibly rich and harmonically complex sounds. As mentioned, Matriarch features two classic Moog Ladder Filters that can be used in three distinct modes: parallel (High Pass/Low Pass), stereo (Low Pass/Low Pass), and series (HP/LP).

Where Grandmother featured an analog spring reverb, Matriarch features a dual analog delay inspired by the MF-104M Moogerfooger circuit. This delay module offers up to 700ms of stereo or ping-pong style repeats.

Although Matriarch has 90 patch points, enough to satisfy even the most adventurous of sound designers, it can be played right out of the box thanks to its intuitive layout and signal flow."

Double Korg Minilogue jam - Minilogue, Minilogue XD and Volca Sample with heavy effects


Published on Apr 25, 2019 Expanding Sound

"I recently picked up a Minilogue XD, and I am a big fan. My plan was to sell my old Minilogue and use the money towards the new one. It is a tough call though, the older Minilogue does have some differences that make it unique unto itself. So lately I've been having some fun with both.

I panned each Minilogue a little bit to separate the sound. I also pushed the delays pretty hard. The new ones delay is just so much cleaner, and it sounds great. Something about the old delay sounds really cool too. Its dirty and gritty. It has a life of its own.

I gravitate more towards song based jams, I used presets to change the sequences to make more complex chord progressions, as opposed to staying on a 16 step with modulation. I liked how this one sounded.

Give it a listen, and I hope you enjoy! Do you hear how different the delays sound? which do you like better?"

Red Bull Radio FIRESIDE CHAT Dave Smith




via Red Bull Radio

"The father of MIDI and inventor of the Prophet-5 synth has quietly shaped modern music — engineer and musician Dave Smith talks shop.

Dave Smith is an American engineer and musician whose innovations in synthesis have made him a key figure in the history of electronic music. He founded the synthesizer company Sequential, which was responsible for the first–ever commercial polyphonic and microprocessor-controlled synthesizer, the funky-sounding Prophet-5. He also played a central role in developing MIDI technology — he’s known as the father of MIDI. Starting out in the mid¬’70s as a fan of rock & roll, Smith got tuned on to electronics by Wendy Carlos’s Switched-On Bach, and became inspired to explore synthesis more deeply. His inventions can be heard across American popular music, from radical pop and rock acts like Bowie and Talking Heads to film-score composers and directors like John Carpenter and JJ Abrams. In this Fireside Chat, Smith tells stories of growing up in 1960s California, how the mood of the times fueled his imagination and the genesis of the machines that music fans worldwide have come to know and love."

Epicycloid Turbo Entubulator & Voluptron Vacuum Tube Eurorack Modules


Published on Apr 25, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Epicycloid Engineering has two vacuum tube based modules and a dedicated power supply module for them. The Turbo Entubulator is a module that breaks out all of the functions of a 6AR8 tube to be voltage controlled and used with your other eurorack modules. This module can be used as a VCA, ring modulator, distortion/saturation effect, waveshaper and probably many other uses when patched in different ways.

The Voluptron is a four pole lowpass ladder filter, but with tubes instead of transistors.

Both of these modules receive 200V power from the Illuminox Prime module to make sure the tubes are running at full power.

New Synths in V Collection 7

Synthi V
BRITISH SILVER MACHINE

Synthi V completely captures the spirit of the unique analog synth that burst out of ‘70s London to inspire the entire emerging electronic music world—and it has new superpowers to inspire your world today.

Synthi V brings you all the experimental excitement of EMS’ legendary 3-oscillator analog synths—now infused with thoroughly modern enhancements. Venture beyond unusual lead and bass sounds to create soundscapes and sci-fi effects ranging from beautiful to bizarre and everything in between.

The British-born EMS family of synths—featuring the sonically identical Synthi AKS and VCS3—were among the first to distill modular synthesizer functionality into a more portable form. Where most competitive designs like the Minimoog sacrificed flexibility to size and simplicity, EMS retained a modular heart through the genius of one of the first matrix patchbays to grace a synth. That additional versatility led to more experimentation outside of melodic norms and into the more electronic realms of psychedelia and sci-fi effects. Cue Pink Floyd’s “On the Run” from “The Dark Side of the Moon” LP.

Synthi V is the perfect evolution of the synth that turned a lot of heads. Now you can use it to turn some heads of your own.

Main Features
A component-level model of the EMS Synthi AKS
3 oscillators with waveform mix, noise generator, 18 dB/oct resonant filter, output section with spring reverb modelling
Modular architecture, allowing to route signals in unexpected ways
Ring Modulator, loopable Envelope Shaper, 2 axis Joystick and Sample and Hold modules for advanced modulations
Original keyboard sequencer module with sync to DAW tempo
2 matrix behavior modes: modern and vintage for cross-talk simulation
5 assignable voltage functions to create multi-point envelopes and LFOs synced to DAW tempo
Advanced joystick automation module for modulating parameters in a 2D space
Matrix pin amounts modulations possibilities (with 4 independent groups)
10 effects, Reverb Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Overdrive, Delay, ...
Up to 4 voices of polyphony
Over 250 factory presets


CZ V
PHASE DISTORTION CULT CLASSIC
The budget synth that became a legend in its own right. The instrument that brought the digital synth revolution to the masses is now at your command.

A simpler kind of powerful digital synthesis

Released in 1984, the CZ-101 was Casio’s answer to the wildly popular Yamaha DX7. It was significantly less expensive and infinitely easier to program than its rival. Instead of frequency modulation, Casio’s phase distortion (PD) used various user-selected waveforms to modulate the timing of simple carrier waves at the cycle level in order to create more complex wave shapes. This simplified form of digital synthesis made it comparatively easy to perfect a wide variety of timbres spanning warm pads, natural percussion, buzzy digitalia, sci-fi effects and even analog synths. While PD could sound similar to FM, it also had a unique sonic signature all its own.

The CZ sound helped propel artists like Salt-N-Pepa, Was (Not Was), and Vince Clarke into the spotlight. Let’s add your name to the list.

Classic Casio Phase Distorsion
+ cutting-edge Arturia modeling
= infinite sonic possibilities for you

Imagine a virtual instrument that realistically models every nuance of the CZ-101—and with four times the polyphony and zillions more presets. What if it gave you an intuitive graphic interface that unlocked of all the hidden jewels in this unique digital synth? And what if it now had additional envelopes, filters, LFOs, effects, and extensive beat-sync-to-host parameters? Oh, and what if you could interconnect all that via a new super-flexible modulation matrix? We’ve faithfully reproduced the instrument that brought ‘80s pop to new heights.

Yeah... we did that!

Main Features
Two synthesis lines and independent noise source
All CZ-101/CZ-1000 original parameters
8 original waveform and custom waveform editor
Original CZ SysEx import
CZ, DADSR and Multi-Segments envelopes (syncable and loopable) to control pitch, DCW and amplitude
2 Modulation envelopes
4 assignable macros
Advanced modulation matrix
A Sample and Hold module, 2 LFOs with 6 waveforms, 3 sources combinators and an Arpeggiator
4 FXs slots that can be routed in serie or per synthesis line
A synthesis line state viewer for real-time feedback
Emulation of the original CZ DAC
32 voices of polyphony
Up to 8 voices of unison with unison detune
Over 400 factory presets

Atlantis And Quantized Quadrants


Published on Apr 25, 2019 Intellijel

"The Palette case provides just enough room for Atlantis, Scales, and Planar 2, which is fantastic because they pair so well together.

Here Planar is controlling PITCH on the X axis, and filter cutoff on the Y axis. The GATE output is triggering the GATE input on Atlantis, but also the Sample & Hold, which is feeding the SHIFT input to control the MOD oscillator on Atlantis. This lets us play two notes on Atlantis within the same scale. Digiverb gives everything a nice sheen of reverb at the end."

SUPER SMASH BUTTON - Arcade Audio Gate


Published on Apr 25, 2019 midierror


"The Super Smash Button is an audio gate controlled by an arcade button! It works with anything you plug into it - synths, drum machines, radios, vocals, effects and more.

Available from Tindie here.

The Super Smash Button is an audio gate which allows you to pass any signal at the bash of the big arcade button! Trigger musical elements, vocals, synths, noise and drones through it for rhythmic stutters, jittered melodies and chopped up beats.

It works incredibly well with drones, circuit bent keyboards and weird effects machines - bringing a new dimension rhythm and melody combined. Plug in a radio or play some foley recordings for randomly accessed nuggets of sound to add unpredictability and serendipitous synchronicity to the proceedings.

It has a toggle switch to allow the signal to pass completely, for when your Track and Field skills have come a cropper. Use external effects after the pedal to expand its impact - a delay or loop pedal is the ideal output for an innovative way of making new textures, tones and soundscapes.

This is a hand-made, hard-wearing device in a strong aluminum enclosure, with a tried-and-tested arcade button for years of trigger finger raising. It ships from the UK with either Green, Blue or Yellow buttons and four rubber feet to grip to and protect your surfaces.

The Super Smash Button is 111mm x 31mm (47mm including switch) x 60mm and weights around 150g."
