Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969 - Compilation LP Preview

Published on May 4, 2019 Waveshaper Media

Update: see the second embed further below.

"Available exclusively from our Bob Moog documentary Indiegogo campaign:

Electronic Voyages: Early Moog recordings 1964-1969
(Waveshaper Media - WSM-03 vinyl LP)

A1. Robert Arthur Moog - The Abominatron (1964)
A2. Herbert Deutsch - Jazz Images, A Worksong And Blues (1967)
A3. Joel Chadabe - Blues Mix (1966)
B1. Lothar and the Hand People - Milkweed Love (1968)

B4. Max Brand - Triptych (1969)
B5. Paul Earls - Monday Music (1968)

In support of their forthcoming Bob Moog documentary Electronic Voyager, Waveshaper Media have produced a compilation LP of Moog recordings from the 1960s. The first compilation of its kind, Electronic Voyages: Early Moog recordings 1964-1969 contains tracks by Robert Arthur Moog, Herbert Deutsch, Joel Chadabe, Lothar and the Hand People, Intersystems, Ruth White, Max Brand, and Paul Earls. All of these tracks, released here on vinyl in an edition of 1000 copies, have been scarcely heard and difficult to track down, with all but three of them previously unreleased on vinyl.

Bypassing the Moog synthesizer’s backseat appearance on key pop recordings by the likes of the Beatles, the Doors, and the Beach Boys, Electronic Voyages aims to highlight the diverse approach of 1960s musicians and composers who adopted the Moog as their primary instrument; these recordings all feature the Moog synthesizer front and centre. Beginning with an “audio letter” (The Abominatron) from Bob Moog to his musician-muse Herbert Deutsch, demonstrating some of the first Moog synthesizer prototype’s capabilities, Electronic Voyages veers from avant-garde and electronic soundscapes, to psychedelic madness and summer-of-love pop. In the 1960s, the Moog synthesizer was a new, groundbreaking instrument, and its use was completely uncharted territory. The pioneering use of the Moog on all of these recordings sounds fresh today - you can sense the wide-eyed exploratory delight unfolding, and the disparate results range from endearingly naive (Lothar and the Hand People, Paul Earls) to downright eerie (Ruth White, Intersystems).

The musicians and composers behind these Electronic Voyages may have been among the first to adopt Moog synthesizers, but the fact that they so readily found within them expressivity, heart, and a means to translate their wondrous sense of discovery, speaks far more to Bob Moog’s visionary invention and enduring legacy."

Arturia MicroFreak Organ synth? | haQ attaQ

Published on May 4, 2019 Jakob Haq

"I’m doing sound design with the Arturia MicroFreak synthesizer. This synth has a lot of stuff packed into it which helps when designing complex sounds. Apart from checking out the Cycling Envelope, we’re also having a quick look at the 64 step sequencer and how sweet it really is. Let’s go!"


Published on May 4, 2019 Sounds From The Shed

"I was sort of working this out as I went along so it may not be perfect but it gives an idea of some of the features of the sequencer. I tend to prefer making songs than rambling too much so its just a rough look at the sequencer and what I figured out since there is no manual!"

Teenage Engineering OP-Z - A Tiny Little Set

Published on May 4, 2019 Oscillator Sink

"I've been very much enjoying the tiny magical, musical remote control-looking OP-Z. Having something so portable, neat but powerful that I can jam with around the house is super cool. I've been playing around with a few patterns as I'm learning the OP-Z, so I figured I'd form them into a little mini-set.

Lots to explore still (the sequencer in particular is super powerful and I'll definitely talk about it in more depth once I know it better), but what's really striking to me is how much fun I'm having making music on the OP-Z."

Synthesizer Sounds by Computerbandit

Published on May 4, 2019 Computerbandit

1. Sequential Prophet 6 - Pad Sounds (by Computerbandit)
Own created Sequential Prophet 6 pad sounds.
Only with internal effects.

The Prophet 6 is a great sounding analog Synthesizer. The resonance and the VCOs are so alive. The P6 can sound hard and smooth.
2. Roland Juno 60 - Synthesizer Sounds (by Computerbandit)
Own created Roland Juno 60 Sounds.
Only with 15% small room reverb.

The Juno 60 is a great sounding analog Synthesizer. His envelopes are awesome and alive.
3. Nord Lead 3 - FX Sounds (by Computerbandit)
Own created Nord Lead 3 FX Sounds.
Only with internal unison mode.

The multimode filter types are awesome and so clear. I think the NL3 has the best unison mode of all Nord Leads. Also great for cheesy digital pads and deep bass lines.
4. Nord Lead 4 - Pad Sounds (by Computerbandit)
Own created Pad Sounds of the Nord Lead 4 Synthesizer.
Only with internal effects. No Multitimbral / single sounds only.

I love the Nord Lead 4. Yes it can sound aggressive an digital but often he sounds so warm and smooth.

kurimanzutto presents Tarek Atoui’s project “Organ Within” at its cabinet space in New York City. Operating as an open sound laboratory, and instrumentarium, “Organ Within” is the result of his ongoing collaboration with instrument-makers Léo Maurel and Vincent Martial, and their research into historical church pipe organs, modular synthesizers, and the sonic experiences of deaf people.

As host and activator of the project, CONTROL has invited a diverse group of sound artists and musicians from New York’s experimental music community to venture and play the organ at kurimanzutto in New York. This group of collaborators will occupy the cabinet space one week at a time, to work with the instrument for research and recording purposes. These residencies, curated in collaboration with Robert Aiki Aubery Lowe, will be open to the public, with a weekly performance held every Saturday at 3p.

"This week we're taking a look at the Behringer VC340. The latest analog vocoder synth with a Roland VP-330 heritage. It's a string synthesizer and vocoder with a human voice section too. It is completely analog and has a beautiful retro sound - which I'm sure you'll recognise immediately from records in the 70s and 80s."

ST Modular - EFI (4HP Analog Filter)

Published on May 4, 2019 Stefan Tretau

"Dual-Mode Analog Filter

EFI is an analog multi-mode filter that is loosely based on the KORG MS-20 filter, but has been improved to fit into a 4 HP module.

It has a Low Pass and High Pass Mode which you may choose via Switch on the front panel. Additionally there are two CV inputs with an attenuator each.

Resonance can self-oscillate and there is a third mode that you may choose via jumper on the back. In this mode Resonance will be overdiven very quickly in Low Pass Mode and you will get some nice liquid sounding overtones.

This module is very easy to build and only needs 24 different components that are quite easy to source.

• Analog Dual-Mode-Filter
• Filter Modes: LP, HP (+ LP Overdrive via Jumper)
• Resonance Control
• Two CV Inputs
• Two CV Attenuators
• Wrong Polarity Protection
• 3U Eurorack module, 4 HP wide

The module consists of two boards:

• Front PCB Panel
• Main PCB

26 mA +12V
24 mA -12V
0 mA 5V
25 mm deep
Module is available as a DIY project only."

CV controlled PONG in Eurorack

Published on May 4, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Now we all know that you get into Eurorack to play retro games and try to CV control them right? ... Here's a nice little Easter Egg (see Easter Egg link below if that's a new term for you) in the Waveplane Oscillator from Dove Audio. CV controlled PONG! So here's a ridiculous over the top FX chain processing the beeps, the "secret handshake" AKA how to set the knobs and get into the Easter Egg mode and just a bit of fun. Enjoy, support the module and grab it early on Kickstarter here - - PONG aside, check the links below to hear the oscillator it's very nice."

Strng (iOS String Synthesis) AUv3 Plugin

Published on May 4, 2019 humbletune

"Strng is a string synthesiser inspired by the karplus-strong algorithm. The physical modelling starts with a short burst of noise that then guided by a tuned delay buffer and string tension filter, generates plucked string like sounds. No samples are used.

Now it can also run as a AUv3 plugin in your favourite host, as well as run stand alone supporting Inter App Audio and AudioBus."

The UI reminds me of the Teenage Engineering OP-1 Strng was released back in 2015.

Today I am giving a user review of the new Behringer VC340.
The VC340 is billed as a complete reproduction of the Roland VP-330 all-analog circuitry.
I have some experience having owned an original VP-330 MK1.
And previously reviewed the Roland Boutique VP-03 [posted here] which had an Achilles heel IMHO.
