Latest SUPERBOOTH Videos from Perfect Circuit

Published on May 20, 2019 Perfect Circuit


1. Patching Panda Holograms & Vibrazum Jam SuperBooth 2019
Patching Panda played this jam for us on a system made with their modules. They have a new triple oscillator called the Holograms that will give you tons of modulation options as well as a new design for their triple filter the Vibrazum.
2. Schlappi 100 Grit Sounds SuperBooth 2019
Schlappi has done it again with a new noisy eurorack module, the 100 Grit. It has touch points and produces awesome squealing and squeaking feedback tones when provoked.
3. Worng Soundstage Sounds SuperBooth 2019
Worng showed us how their Soundstage module moves your sounds around in the mix and makes it easy to get a clear spatialized mix with your eurorack sounds.
4. Shakmat Modular Jam SuperBooth 2019
Shakmat Modular showed us this quick jam using their modules to quickly put together and tweak a sequence on on eurorack setup. The Four Bricks Rook is an incredibly fast way to put together a rhythmic sequence.
5. Birdkids Raven & Unicorn Boom Sounds SuperBooth 2019
Birdkids showed us their Raven two VCO synth voice module and their kick drum, the Unicorn Boom at SuperBooth 2019.
6. Winter Modular EME (Eloquencer Midi Expander) Jam SuperBooth 2019
Winter Modular played this jam for using their new EME (Eloquencer Midi Expander) with an Eloquencer to program in this sequence and manipulate it live. The EME allows you to sync the Eloquencer with external midi clocks, control settings and program sequences into the Eloquencer and send midi out from the Eloquencer to sequence non eurorack gear.
7. Casper Electronics OMSynth Jam SuperBooth 2019
Casper Electronics had a laboratory setup at SuperBooth 2019 and they played this quick jam for us so we could hear some of the sounds their synths are capable of. The OMSynth will soon have a eurorack version and the Dark Matter as always produced some great feedback distortion sounds.

Roland Jupiter-8 JP-8a final revision mint with Encore MIDI

via this auction

"I went to college so I could buy a Jupiter 8. I waited years and years and worked my ass off and finally graduated and got a real job. I kept living like a broke person for months, stashing all my money, eager to complete my life’s mission. When I finally had enough cash I started asking around if anyone had a nice one they would part with on the forums. I didn’t want some ebay mystery, I wanted the ultimate Jupiter 8. I ended up finding it in NYC and drove there from Chicago to buy it in person from the original owner because I didn’t want UPS touching my life’s goal. This is that JP8. I am the second owner and I have owned it for 8 years now. Unfortunately, I fell into a debt hole after a mild case of goddamn bone cancer that put me out of work for a couple of months last year and there’s just no other way out of this never ending prison of interest payments. Anyone that thinks this is the greatest country in the world... well. Just be happy circumstances have been kind to you, because I did everything “right” and I’m still in this position... and in the end I’m “lucky” that the studio I spent my life building is “all” I am losing.

But anyway, enough whining. Without further ado: here is the nicest JP8 on Reverb, and one of the nicest on earth. I am the second owner, it has never been shipped, it has never been gigged, it came out of the private studio of an incredible musician and into mine and now into yours.

It is an 8th revision JP-8a, meaning this is the best one Roland ever made. There were 8 incremental reliability, playability, and communication updates over the lifespan of the JP8 (the DCB change is the one most people are familiar with, there are seven more smaller ones) and this is the final one before it went out of production. It is a 14 bit DCB model with all of the less well known factory updates performed by Roland as new, and it also has the latest Encore MIDI kit. Everything works flawlessly. There is no noise or crust in the sliders. This thing gets used every day so it’s not some stiff museum piece, it’s just a gorgeous, near perfect example of a JP8. There is no Roland rust, no damaged paint, no rattles, no halfassed repairs, it was never trashed then restored, the heatsink isnt all rusty and bent, the screws are all still black and all there... I’m a bit of a tech and have had tons of old Rolands and this really is as good as they get. The acrylic over the display looks brand new. The two flaws I am aware of are a light scratch from a kitty incident, and a light dent under the keybed from being on a stand. It’s a 9.75/10.

Local pickup in LA is strongly preferred, but if I need to ship it it’s getting custom boxed etc so expect $750 or so in shipping fees. You really should drive out and get it in person though if you aren’t local, it has never been shipped before... don’t break the streak. That said, if I do ship it it will be fully insured but I will not under any circumstances accept a return or do a partial refund because it got knocked out of tune or a connector came unplugged etc in the back of the UPS truck..."

iVCS3 2019 JEC Inter-City Sequence

Published on May 20, 2019 James Edward Cosby

"Short demo performance of iVCS3 JEC 2019 Preset Bank - Preset "JEC Inter-City Seq" taken from a soon to be released 2019 Preset Bank... Endless fun...

This preset uses a punchy JECV Envelope encoded File fed into Input 2 to modulate the Filter via Matrix Row 9, the filter is also Inversely Frequency Mapped to the Sequencer Notes. The percussive sounds are provided by the noise module set to high colour and filtered. The sequence is interpolated to give the illusion of layered sequences...

The 2019 Bank A is in progress... more demos to follow... Get the 2018 Banks available now in iVCS3 Preset & Mods Shop...

Kawai K5000 Pad sounds and mini Jam

Published on May 20, 2019 Phonopollution

"For video editing I use iMovie for iOS, however I have troubles to keep the high audio quality during export of the vid at the level of the original recording. Any idea how to fix that? Briefly, the original recording sounds much more brighter and has more space. During the export the transparency is lost even if I adjust the volume to 95 % of the max. level."

"Having Serge himself working with Random Source is a great thing for the synth scene. I was excited to hear Serge was officially on board as a team member at Random Source and not just consulting but also developing new products as well both for the 4U Serge format and for Eurorack. Getting to catch up with Ralf and Matthias is always a pleasure and Matthias has patched up a reflective, self generative installation style patch for us in the video too."

WOW! Next level Eurorack granular synthesis with Arbhar from Instruo // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 20, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Wow, really wow! Arbhar from Instruo really blew me away with what genuinely seems like next level granular processing / granular synthesis for the Eurorack platform. Despite the overtop thumbnail and title the quality of sound, top end, detail seemed to really shine and I can't wait to try this out for myself. Arbhar is a mono in, dual/stereo output granular processor with lots of CV, controls, on board condenser microphone, auto-recording through amplitude and frequency change detection and more."
