Studio Electronics Introduces SE-1X Standalone Editor

"A standalone app is now available for the SE-1X persuasion. SE Sound Designer and Coder Emmanuel Santoul has delivered yet again. Like the OmegaCodeEditor/ATCeditor/SE-02, it also floats an expanded virtual synth above your actual and venerated SE-1X.

Plug-in Highlights
1. Complete front panel implementation.
2. Extended panel for full patch review and edit.
3. 4+4+4 banks landscape (4 ROM, 4 RAM, 4 on your hard drive).
4. Alpha-numeric patch naming/renaming.
5. Deep and detailed Patch and Bank exploration modification made easy.
6. Visual Patch edit and compare of all parameters.
7. Bank saving/loading made easy.
8. Tone Wizard functionality for quick and weird patch generation.
9. Crazy useful random patch name generator.

Note: The app does not generate sound; it only address MIDI and SysEx data.

Mac: OS X 10.7 (Lion) and higher, 64bits app.
PC: Win7 and higher 32bits app. No Plug-in planned at this time.

Drone Box don't keep droning on about it ...

Published on May 30, 2019 Vykaar Tones

"Unique six oscillator drone box probably made in the 1970s judging by the components used in it - mostly working with a few broken switches and pots. Great if you need that WW2 Lancaster / Dornier Bomber sound ... No information on this one off creation but it looks really old school! Stereo out each oscillator footage has a switch, gain and pan controls. If you made this or know anything about it please let me know. Also if you are electronically competent and interested in buying it to refurbish and maybe fit some wooden side cheeks etc... get in touch"

"Another little tutorial, this time for a fake electric guitar sound.
To be honest - I want to release a whole pack of kinda "natural" sounds instead of sharing every patch... But I have a full time job and many other responsibilities that burns my time. It's not that I have already made whole pack, I'm sharing them when I make them... So please, don't be mad - if you really need it - dive into editor (you can easily copy all the values to Components editor as well) :)
Thanks for watching!

Another time - big shoutout to Novation! Circuit ftw! (for those who may not now)
This tutorial can be applied to almost any subtractive synthesis related gear."

Teenage Engineering OP-1 : Electronic Soundscapes

"This little jam is 100% Teenage Engineering OP-1 and it's internal synthesizers. This slow, dark, hip hop style track with some signature atmosphere in the mix. Hope you enjoy the sounds, trying to explore the Teenage Engineering OP-1 so expect more videos in the future."

"Better Than The Best Of Both Worlds" Hybrid Polysynth 'Summit' from Novation // Superbooth 2019

Published on May 30, 2019 DivKidVideo

"**PLEASE NOTE** Text used on screen in the video is from the Novation Peak page (link below). But as the products share the technology you can apply those things to the features and design of Summit.

Summit is more than two Peaks thrown together. We can think of the Summit as two Peaks in that it's 16 voices (rather than 8) and it can also be split/layered and multi timbral which opens a huge range of power for sound design and performance. Summit (with more real estate thanks to the 61 note keyboard) breaks out more controls such as FM for the oscillators, loop switching for the envelopes and more. I was impressed with Peak and I'm impressed with Summit too.

In the video I chat briefly to Danny who designed the Summit, Nick about the engineering and working with Chris Huggett (designer of the OSCar and Wasp synths) and Chris Calc runs us through the synth. I also have patches from the launch day event cut into the video. So you'll get some background, a product overview and plenty of sounds too."

Syncing 2 vintage Roland drummachines, CR-78 and CR-8000

Published on May 29, 2019 obscure wave music

"Syncing 2 vintage Roland drum machines.

Here's a little demo -really nothing fancy - featuring the Roland CR-8000 and the CR-78 synced together and plugged into, but not recorded on, a vintage Tascam 244. The echo is the now-almost-vintage Boss RE-20.
Both these drummachines are long-time favorites of mine, along with the TR-606.

The point here is this: though both drum machines respond to Roland sync, the CR-8000 uses 24 ppqn and the CR-78 uses 12 ppqn. Wich means that if you just plug sync out from the CR-8000 into the CR-78, the latter one will play at double the tempo, which can be intresting, but most of the time is not.

So, I worked around that problem by using a Doepfer MSY-1 to sync the CR-78 from a midi clock coming from a DSI mono evolver keyboard ( which plays the “ drony “ sequence in the background from it's internal sequencer ). The MSY-1, although a relatively old device, can be set to different clock divisions from an incoming midi clock. Using the same midi clock source, the CR-8000 is synced by the sync24 converter inside the Novation Drumstation ( both the MSY-1 and the Drumstation are out of view ).

Using this principle, I'll try to make another demo with an 808 and 606 added to the setup.

Recorded straight from the 244's line out into a Roland R-05. I chose not to record on the 244, because it is still in the process of being refurbished and the tape mechanism is not up to the job yet.

By the way: my 244 misses the button cap of the cassette eject switch. Would anyone know where I can find a replacement ? All the transport caps/buttons on the 244 are one “ pad of caps/buttons “, and the one for eject here has broken of and vanished... Any help or suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks for watching !"

Digitakt LFO is broken by design (with proof / measurements) ?

Published on May 30, 2019 zbr_audio


"The range of the LFO on the digitakt is roughly five times more than reasonable - to the extent it saturates the pitch modulation input. I hope this gets fixed.
Bug been there since I got the machine on 1.05, still here on 1.11

Measurements done using CueMixFX FFT visualiser"

Audiothingies P6

Published on May 30, 2019 Joakim Floke

"A demo of the now discontinued Audiothingies P6. A cheap DIY VA-synth with a load of features, great sound and a small form factor. I use it a lot. It has some rolandish quality to its sound, at least I think so. The build took only 2 evenings."

"A collectors item in good condition considering it's age, lid included.

Plays great, good key action, sliders are in good shape, no oxidation or double triggering.
Tons of character and, with all the sections engaged, capable of a BIG sound!
See the Youtube video of this very machine on sale here. [video previously posted here]
This was Eko's answer to the early version Solina String Ensemble, and it gets very close: Bass, cello and horn sounds are literally spot on, the other three sections a bit different but quite close, again, see the video of this very machine on sale here.

Six sections with individual volume controls for each section, making it versatile compared to the Solina's On/Off.

Variable Attack and decay controls.

Weighs 16 kilos, light compared to the Solinas whopping 25... "

ROSSUM Electro Music TRIDENT Oscillator - Jam

Published on May 30, 2019 Jimi Heinrich

"A quick demo of the new Rossum Electro Music Trident Oscillator for the Eurorack system.

You can hear the Trident on the left side, with no filters or effects.

To make really use of the Trident, you should different tracks for the three oscillators and for the modulations. To accomplish this, I used a Winter Modular Eloquencer and then some.

On the right side there is a little help from an ACL Oscillator paired with an Erica Synth Polivoks II Filter."
