Prophet Rev2 Quick Look | LFO with filter

Published on May 15, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"A quick video about routing the LFO to filter cut off and resonance parameters on the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet Rev2 synth. Trying out different rates and shapes while playing this analog polysynth.
The LFO routing implementation on the Prophet Rev 2 is probably one of the most intuitive I've seen and the large amount of possible destination parameters invites experimentation no matter your experience with analog subtractive synthesis."

Malekko Goatkeeper Sounds Superbooth 2019

Published on May 15, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Malekko had a new pedal based on the lightfoot labs Goatkeeper at SuperBooth which we were able to record with a Manther running through it. The Goatkeeper is a tap tempo and clock synching tremolo with two LFOs to modulate the volume and multiple modes. The modulation can also go from slow all the way up to audio rate.

VMachine hardware VST player - still useful in 2019?

Published on May 15, 2019 Floyd Steinberg

Don't miss the fan noise at 10:15. Update: I asked Floyd if the fan stays on and he replied: "Unfortunately, it's on all the time. In this video, the noise might seem a little louder than it is in reality, but it's loud enough to bei recognized in a studio environment."

"VMachine hardware VST player - still useful in 2019? Table of contents below! This is a small box running Linux and WINE (a Windows Emulator) which runs a VST host software. In this video, I'm playing some sounds of the preinstalled VST plugins and try to install my own plugins, with mixed success. Also: How to reset this to factory defaults when it isn't booting.

Folktek Aether/Materia/Mentalis TRIAD

via this auction

"Up for auction, Folktek Aether/Materia/Mentalis TRIAD, which has been discontinued by Folktek and is no longer in production. Very few were made. From the Folktek website:

Three instruments designed to function standalone or compliment, enhance and enrich the sound and possibilities of each other.

All three (Materia, Mentalis, Aether) can be obtained independently and will satisfy until they're joined by their soul mates. In the near future, you will be able to buy all three at once and they will include power jumpers so you only need one supply.

Some of the ways in which these three instruments work together;

- Aether oscillators pass through hands without audio cable.

- Aether CV controls Materia synthesis.

- Materia sequencing controls Aether, which is synchronized to Materia triggering but which can run on different timing.

- Materia can send Aether's sound back into Aether to use effects and mix with or without unaltered internal synthesis.

- Materia triggers Mentalis synthesis and travels through Mentalis circuitry to create new sounds.

- Mentalis accepts patching from Materia and allows the use of either modulation or any 4 patchable knobs.It also contains a removable patchbay to create a primitive memory for either or both Mentalis and Materia.

- Mentalis has a single touch plate which offers filtering, overdrive, etc. (similar to Materia) of Aether synthesis which also runs through the hands.

All three instruments can have power jumpered so only one supply is necessary. Mentalis is the power hub.

Comes with patch cables, manuals & power cable"

Rediscovering A Rare 70's Synthesizer with Tara Busch - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro

Published on May 14, 2019 Produce Like A Pro

"The Resynator is a monophonic pitch-tracking synthesizer with a pretty remarkable story. The instrument-controlled unit was invented by Don Tavel in the ’70s to track the pitch of any instrument plugged into it and produce synthesized sounds. As the world’s first synthesizer of its kind, the Resynator was way ahead of its time, but unfortunately never saw the proper production and distribution it deserved."

ES01 Rack Extension - 1.1 Update

Published on May 15, 2019 Ekssperimental Sounds Studio

"ES01 just got updated with new features and loads of new patches!

1.1 Updates:
Added pulse width target in mod matrix for VCO and sub oscillator
Added rectangular and PWM waveforms to the sub oscillator
Added feet and pitch offset mod targets for the sub oscillator
Extended sub oscillator frequency range down to 8Hz
Added additional white noise generator available through the mixer
Added VCF lag trimmer to backside
Fixed sub oscillator phase to match VCO cycles for consistent timbres
EG times can now be modulated below their original range using negative values in the mod matrix
New default patch
Added over 100 new patches incorporating the new possibilities of 1.1

The ES01 is a faithful recreation of a beloved analog classic. While the hardware which the ES01 is based on was originally marketed as an entry-level synth, it is still a popular tool of many professional artists for its ease of use in getting great sounds, particularly leads and bass lines.

The ES01 is not a 1:1 emulation - it also has additional features like Sub Oscillator, Unison and last but not least, Polyphony. The Touch Data Programmer with its Global Settings and modulation matrix together with the CV connectivity of the Reason Rack gives ES01 massive tweaking possibilities. This all makes the ES01 unique and quite capable of producing many classic analog synth sounds like fat basses, vibrant pads, synthetic arpeggios and analog sounding leads that cut through the mix.

Ekssperience the sound of the past with the possibilities of the future with the ES01 Analog Synthesizer.

Available in the Propellerhead Shop.
