Esoteric Beach Simulator II [Novation Circuit Tape Lo-Fi chillout]

Published on May 29, 2019 Flak Cannon

"I recorded this track directly to a cassette from the Novation Circuit when performing it. It's more exciting and fun recording directly into an analogue physical media when you don't have an undo/delete button so easily available!

If I ever finish this track "properly", I'll record it to PC and upload it here."

Kilohearts Introduces Phase Plant Modular Hybrid Synthesizer Plugin

See the SUPERBOOTH video here.

"Kilohearts crosses threshold of New Era Synthesis as snapin eco-system pinnacle Phase Plant pushes creative sound design envelope

LINKÖPING, SWEDEN: new-generation audio plugins creator Kilohearts is proud to announce availability of Phase Plant — pushing the creative sound design envelope as a truly limitless hybrid synthesizer plugin, building on a modular system of GENERATORS, MODULATORS, and EFFECTS from the company’s acclaimed snapin range of small, single-purpose plugins that can be used either directly in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) as VST (Virtual Studio Technology), AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) and AU (Audio Unit) audio plugins or as building blocks in a Phase Plant patch — as of May 29…

Phase Plant represents the pinnacle of the snapin eco-system that Kilohearts has been busy developing since the 2015 release of its award-winning Multipass modular multi-band host. Combining the power of snapin effects with new modules for signal generation and modulation, Phase Plant is a hybrid synthesizer capable of what has previously only been possible in classic modular setups. Indeed, it empowers users with more options than they can shake a stick at, allowing anyone to make their thing as big or small as they need it to be. But better still, it does all this on a single screen and with surprising ease.

Roland Jupiter-8

via this auction

"Here we have a Roland Jupiter-8 in very good condition. This item has been sitting in a garage for many years, but is fully functional. The only thing missing is the plastic tip for the cutoff frequency fader. The previous owner told us that this unit was modded from the factory for Steve Winwood but we are unsure of what the mods are. Because we have no way of knowing that this actually did belong to Steve Winwood, we have it priced out to be a normal modded Jupiter-8."

"In the four decades of Morning Becomes Eclectic, you’ve heard countless sessions broadcast live from our humble basement studios. On Tuesday, May 21, we begin a new chapter with our first live MBE broadcast from our new home with a live performance by James Blake."

Trip seeing the eurorack system. Sequential Prophet-X & Prophet '08 featured as well. I believe the drummer has a Prophet-6 module based on the following tweet from @SequentialLLC:

But if you watch until the end, you might have the chance to listen to some Weinglas trademark sounds ;-)"

Macbeth Elements SN EL2-016 2019 Black

via this auction

"Waited for almost a year and received the EL2 end of March 2019. Barely used it. It basically stayed in the box. The EL2 is limited to30 units!

At first glance, the EL2 features a classical, subtractive signal flow. A closer look then reveals some cool oddities like unconventional filter slopes, extensively equipped modulators, a band echo simulation and a spring reverb. The EL2 features a completely discrete circuit design. Its sound is creamy and fat at the same time. Thanks to NOS components, the instrument has a nice vintage vibe. Compared to its predecessor, the EL2 offers some very useful additions. – Especially its three oscillators have been extended considerably."

Arturia MICROFREAK - AMBIENT factory patches demo (1)

Published on May 29, 2019 Alba Ecstasy

"Here is a selection of some of the Arturia #MicroFreak #factorypresets that I could easily use in an #ambient track. That’s why the amount of the reverb.
The demo (part 1) is made (in a hurry, since today I have to return the MF) to help myself decide if a should give listen to my G.A.S. and to order it again (yes, I canceled my preorder two days before being delivered - I had my reasons to wait a little bit more). So, don't expect too much from this demo, ok?!

How’s the MicroFreak?! Really nice! It still has some bugs - it really needs a carryover function so when you change the patches the transition between them to be smooth - but I could live with that.

But I’m afraid the my Digitone would cover that tonal character of the MF.
My G.A.S. says to me that I need one asap!
What should I do, what should I do? (lol)"
