Minimal Ambient Drone Synth Demo NO TALK // Waldorf Streichfett Demo

Published on May 24, 2019 Ron Cavagnaro

"This is a repetitive, hypnotic, meditative, dreamy look into the absolutely amazing Waldorf Streichfett. This synth was inspired by the rich, thick, swirling tones of classic 70's string machine synthesizers. All of the sounds in this video are made from the Streichfett. The sequence was made on the synthstrom deluge. A thanks to my friend from Athens, Greece who had sent me as a gift!"

Roland V-Synth XT Rack Mounted V.2.0 - Analogue Modelling Synthesiser - Vocoder SN Z730311

via this auction

"Just an awesome piece of kit - great sounds from complex pads and atmospheres through to screaming leads, percussion, conventional instruments and everything in between. All of the deep synth modelling functions, multi-effects, arpeggiator, vocoding and live controls are easily accessed via the touch screen. Very complex and functional synth, but also intuitive to use with some practice. Packed with an array of amazing patches and all fully configurable as you'd expect.

There are farrrrrrr too many technical features to list here, but suggest you Google it as there are lots of very good in-depth reviews and audio/video samples online. I've included a few screen shots to give a taste of the user interface and features. Here are the key (non-technial) points:

> Latest V2.0 Operating System
> Mint condition - spent its life in my home studio - never gigged.
> No mods or repairs - supplied as original.
> Comes in Original Box
> Includes 4U rack-mount kit (which swivels to allow easy use/view) - (Also has rubber feet for freestanding use.)
> Fully functional Touch Screen. No scratches - no worn areas.
> All buttons / knobs working with no signs of wear as hardly used."

Hidden Pink Noise Output on The Harvestman's Polivoks Modulator

Published on May 24, 2019 poorness studios

"This is a neat little tip I learned from Scott Jaeger of Industrial Music Electronics. He showed me there is a hidden pink noise output on their Polivoks Modulator module. Pretty cool!"

Funny comment on Scott Jaeger being stand offish. He's just a twisted, dark, teddy bear. ;) Jk. Scott is great. Talk to him if you ever run into him.

4MS SWN (Spherical Wavetable Navigator) Eurorack Six Voice Oscillator

Published on May 24, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"The 4MS SWN (Spherical Wavetable Navigator) is a eurorack module with six wavetable oscillators that can produce thick drones as well as chords. The SWN gets its name from the fact that its wavetables are held within a three dimensional sphere shaped space that can be morphed through and navigated. The SWN has the ability to load in or record wavetables, the oscillator frequencies can be quantized and it can store and load presets.

In this video we used Malekko's Varigate 4+ for sequencing, the TINRS Wobbler & Edgecutter for modulation as well as an Intellijel Planar 2. We also used a Doepfer A-105 SSM VCF and GRP VCA.

SWN available here:"

ULT SOUND DS-4 Vintage Drum Synthesizer SN 970299

via this auction

"Ultra-rare Japanese 4 channel drum synth with unique cascade triggering option – accessed by pulling individual channel sensitivity knobs... The Toyo Gakki DS-4 comes in a black variant and this colourful one, but it is only this model that has the extra functionality. Most famously used by Yellow Magic Orchestra, we’ve said a lot about our love for these in the past (maybe too much as they’ve become even harder to get hold of, but damn they are good!)."

Arturia Micro Freak "Paraphonic Test" Unedited No Talking!!!
Synthesizer Demo by Rik Marston
***Watch in HD!!*** ***Turn it UP!!***

Arturia Micro Freak Paraphonic Test...
Is it any good for Ambient Music? Pads?? Let's see!!!!
I am using my favorite Roland JP-8000 as MIDI controller.
The Micro Freak is not responding to SYSEX CC's from the
JP-8000 but it responds to the Ribbon Controller (Cutoff)
WAY better to play the Micro Freak with real keys than the
Micro Freak's "keys" - they are cool but can be hard to master
at first. The Micro Freak does make nice Pads, Drones, ETC.
But just remember the Micro Freak's limits and you will be able
to play it comfortably and make it sound natural, flowing....
Recorded DRY into Ableton LIVE with NO extra FX! ;)

Control your home with CV & a beautiful chord interface - Elektrofon Klang + Hue // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 24, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Elektrofon announced KLANG their polyphonic CV generator giving you a simply STUNNING interface for making 4 voice chords in Eurorack. The module can save chord tones and sequence between them with external clocks and CV. Really simple interface, beautiful, easy to see clock like dials show what each note/voice is playing too. There's also a prototype Philips Hue interface that takes Eurorack CV signals to control the Hue protocol. This is just basic colour hue and brightness on the prototype but Rune is developing an interface with much more CV input and an app to integrate that ... just imagine a totally CV controlled home, the family would love it!"

"Superb string/bass synth for sale freshly serviced and calibrated by our synth tech. A rare and stunning-sounding synth that just oozes seventies cosmic goodness...

One of the most flexible and fine sounding analogue string/bass synths ever made with particularly lush sounding strings – the release is lovely.

The synth section has a that superb squelchy Roland filter – great bass sounds.

Quadruple BBD modulation effects – stereo chorus, ensemble and flanger modes – audio input allows you to use the modulation on external sources.

Service work included recap of the power supply, replacement of other out of condition capacitors, meticulous testing of the BBD chips (all functional and original!) and cleaning of keyboard and all pots and slider."

Wersi AP-6 Bass Synth

via this auction

"Rare German bass synth in excellent cosmetic condition and superb working order...

The bass guitar voice sounds brilliant – just the right amount of bite – as near as a 70s analogue synth might get to a Fender Bass through an Ampeg B15N?

The Wersi AP-6 Baß (Bass) Synth is a fine little monophonic analogue synthesizer; testament to German design and attention to detail, it’s very expressive, sounds wonderful and plays beautifully. There are plenty of modulation and expression options and it’s very easy to conjure up a wide range of warm rich analogue synth sounds."

Lush triple filter & new triple VCO from Patching Panda // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 24, 2019 DivKidVideo

"The new Vibrazum from Patching Panda is a lush triple filter with 2 filters that can be low pass or band pass and a band pass filter in the middle. You can modulate the filters in unison or with individual cut off control, resonance etc and the input has a nice amount of drive to it too. Really lovely triple peak filter sound. Holograms in the new triple analogue VCO based around the idea of a single carrier and two modulators. Like the filter there's ways to control these collectively or individual and lots of modulation potential."

"KORG VOLCA MODULAR // Patch 2 // P3 II.
Wiring should be quite clear by the video.

I returned this synthesizer recently -- and that's why:

The MODULAR is a synthesizer with a potential but also with a lot of NOs, unfortunately. I really like the idea of it but it has:

1. unlike all the other Volcas NO Midi input
2. NO seperate gate input -- combined CV/Gate in so special stereo mini jack to 2 mono mini jacks cable needed
3. LPG is very low, only half as loud as LPG1, or my Volca is broken?!
4. Gate or CV output of keyboard and sequencer only in these fiddle sockets.
5. Cables with the soft easily bendable ends feel and are very fiddly. The raw cable ends slide easily out of the sockets even though you only gently touch the cables!
6. The black pot underbeath in front of both Cutoff pots should be the control voltage patched in sockets A + B but even if it is turned fully conterclockwise (= minimum) there is still CV being let out. I don't know if there is a work around for that or if my MODULAR is part of faulty batch??!

From min. 5 - 8 it is clock input is patched as source by mistake but there is still a lot of entertaining tweaking ;-)"

Hydronium, Part 3: Acid all the Synths!

Published on May 24, 2019 Olivier Ozoux

"The Rare Wave Hydronium can turn every other modular or semi-modular synths into Acid synths, thanks to a CV output that contains the legato glide information, so it doesn't matter if your synth can't do it, because the Hydronium will legato glide in its place.

I have four different semi-modular synths, that I'm turning into acid synths. The Behringer Model D, Plankton Electronics Ants, Dreadbox NYX, and MakeNoise 0-Coast, and as bonus, the Rare Waves Hydronium by itself. The portable Deluge does sequencer duties and makes all the other noises."

HOW TO GENETIC SCISSOR WITH GLUE + DNA! Future Sound Systems // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 24, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Genetics influences oscillators? Analogue synth glue? DNA modulation? The new Recombination Engine from Future Sound Systems is a triple analogue oscillator that flips out the positive and negative portions of waves to impose other oscillators bringing into sync, rectification and tonnes of other 'sonic FX' to the sound. The 3 oscillators working together sounding like analogue vocal synthesis almost like a model of VOSM, super impressive.

There's also the Cyclical Engine we saw last year which has now had a four quadrant multiplier option so you can either AM or Ring Modulate each waveform individually, super sonic sculpting to come with that I'm sure.

FSS are also developing a new high end linear power solution and desk pin matrix devices for studio gear, guitar/pedals and more."

Flesh resistance & skin modulation with the Landscape HC-TT & Stereo Field // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 24, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Having played around with and used the all flesh human capacitance pads in my Eurorack system for a while it was great to get chance to chat to Landscape about the new version of their HT-CC human controlled cassette tape manipulation and CV controller as well as hearing their Stereo Field create interference like noise and more. Both devices really warrant consideration and experimentation with audio in both the creation of sound and manipulation of it. Using your skin as resistors and capacitors makes you part of the circuit. Almost a human circuit bend if you will. I hope I can check these out in more detail in the future."
