Roland RS-09 - deep demonstration and sound programming

Published on Apr 29, 2019 synthlegends

"The RS-09 is an analog string and organ synthesizer. The organ and string sections can be played simultaneously or individually. There are some nice features like vibrato ore envelope settings. Both sounds include an individual ensemble/chorus effect and an external sound input to use the RS-09 as an effect. You also can trigger external monosynths, like from the SH family through a gate output.

In this video I go through all functions and sound design capabilities of the RS-09. Finally I demonstrate the further features, like using the SH-9 ensemble effect for external gear and audio. You will be surprised listening, that the ensemble effect of the RS-9 sounds better than the legendary chorus. Only this feature is worth to get a RS-09. I really love this small synth. I was used from Simple Minds, The Cure, Duran Duran and many others.

Its a very underrated keyboard in my opinion. You can get it still for about 300 to 400 USD or EUR.

Thanks for watching this video again. I hope, it was helpful."

Critter & Guitari - Orac 2.0 for Organelle

Published on Apr 29, 2019 Critter & Guitari

"Download Orac 2.0 here:
Orac is a powerful modular patch-builder crammed into a single Organelle patch. String chains of familiar patches together to create 'super'/'meta'/'uber' functionality. version 2.0 is here and it's amazing!

Add sequencers, synths/samplers and effects to create the ultimate combination. Each element, or module, can be rearranged and changed on the fly. It's like using many Organelles at the same time! Orac can be used on the Organelle without any need for an external computer or coding. It is a very powerful and fun patch!

Here in version 2.0, we have more options and abilities! Use global modulation controls to open up more possibilities for sound making. Manage samples in an easier way and add banks of your own sounds! Use new MIDI implementation to control other gear, or to have other gear control Orac.
Orac 2.0 requires Pure Data 0.49!

Orac was created by Mark Harris, aka thetechnobear. Thanks Mark!!"

Moog Matriarch Analog Paraphonic Four Oscillator Dual Filter Synthesizer

Published on Apr 29, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Check out our article about the Matriarch here:

The Matriarch is Moog's newest semi-modular keyboard which has four oscillators and two filters as well as a stereo analog delay. The four oscillators can be used in monophonic, duophonic or paraphonic modes. Since the Matriarch is semi-modular all types of FM and other modulation between oscillators is possible allowing the creation of complex and interesting timbres.

The filter section features two great sounding Moog filters that can be used in stereo or highpass/lowpass configurations. The filter runs into a stereo BBD analog delay that can run at short times creating reverb like sounds or longer times for standard delay or ping pong delay sounds.

There are many utility patching modules on the Matriarch including multiples, CV controlled attenuverters and LFOs. The Matriarch can be patched internally or with eurorack modular synthesizers.

Moog Matriarch available here:"

4ms Spherical Wavetable Navigator (SWN) - Creating Your Own Wavetables

Published on Apr 29, 2019 4mspedals

"Learn how to create your own wavetables from an audio source on the Spherical Wavetable Navigator. In this video we create a new Sphere using a voice sample, add effects, and save it.

For advanced features such as Waveform Spread, Shift, and Stretch, applying effects to spherical dimensions, see the User Manual.

The Spherical Wavetable Navigator (SWN) is a six-channel synthesizer that makes it easy to create slowly morphing drones, polyphonic melodies, evolving sequences, and rich textures. The SWN features six wavetable oscillators with independent pitch, level, and waveform controls. Six LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators) can be used as modulation sources and/or envelopes, making it easy to add dynamic motion to your patch. Each channel is a full voice and can be “played” using the top row of buttons, the internal LFOs, or note-change detection on the 1V/oct jacks. The SWN ships with 12 three-dimensional (spherical) wavetables and an easy interface which allows you to record and edit custom wavetables from live audio. Open-source software for Mac, Windows, and Linux called SphereEdit can be freely downloaded and allows you computer to create, edit, and convert .wav files into Spherical wavetables to transfer into the SWN with an audio cable."

Works and sounds great! Fully refurbished by Rosen Sound in Burbank, CA. It has the Gligli Mod which provides many upgrades to the original release. I'm going to miss this synth but I just bought a Dave Smith OB-6 and I need to sell this beauty to help pay for the other purchase. The right wood cheek has a small crack (see pics).

Among other things, the Gligli Mod provides for:
Increased resolution for sound parameters
Faster, smoother amplifier and filter envelope generators
New LFO function generator with a wider range
Dedicated vibrato
Unison detune
Mix Overdrive
Full Midi In control of parameters
Improved tuning procedure"

MOOG Memorymoog Plus Keyboard Synthesizer SN 2277 w/ Interesting History

via this auction

"This is a Memorymoog Plus that I bought directly from Moog when I worked there as Marketing Manager. I had Don Besecker of DBM Tech install a better MIDI implementation system, while keeping the original Moog hardware. I had Wes Taggart of Analogics do a complete restoration about 10 operating hours ago. All factory patches and sequences are in memory. Everything on the instrument operates at, frankly, better than original factory quality. I include the owner and service manuals and the oh-so-rare cassette interface cables. There are some scratches at the top of the front panel, as you can see in the photos, but I doubt you’ll find a better-sounding Memorymoog anywhere."

These Might Be The Droids You're Looking For

Published on Apr 29, 2019 Intellijel

"Need some sound effects? Planar's gestural panning and CV control are very powerful when combined. In this case Planar is mixing modulation sources from Atlantis while also controlling the frequency of the modulation oscillator and filter cutoff. This sort of thing is a fun way to generate sample fodder."
