Panamint Valley Sunset [Episode 145]

Published on Jun 2, 2019 CatSynth TV

"Sunset in the Panamint Valley just after a flash flood along California Highway 190. The Panamint Valley lies to the west of Death Valley proper but mostly within the boundaries of the park. The two valleys are separated by the Panamint Range. Two days after this watery scene was filled, the area was bone dry with dust storms.

Original music by Amanda Chaudhary, composed entirely in the Locrian mode (scale of white keys starting on B).

mixer or audio interface! These synth sound nice combined!
You should be able to create some deep layered textures! FUN!
These little synths can sound MASSIVE when need be!!!

Korg Volca Sample: Turning a kick drum into a synthesizer

Published on Jun 3, 2019 Evader Music

"A quick song made from a single kick drum.

Spent the last week learning to use this little machine effectively. Though it’s primary use is for sample playback as a drum machine, it works surprisingly well as a melody sequencer.

All sounds heard in this are a kick drum sample, looped fast enough by shortening the sample length during playback to become a makeshift wave-table oscillator. With motion sequence turned on, holding both the Volca function button and the note in sequence gives the option to select a pitch in semitones with the sample speed dial.

Program your sequence, layer with 9 other samples, save up to 10 different versions of your sequence, send it through some external effects, and you’ve got a fully capable song writing sequencer/synthesizer!"

Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with JESSE FISCHER

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Jesse Fischer is a Brooklyn-based keyboardist, composer, producer, and engineer. Largely self-taught, he is known for his warm, soulful touch and emphasis on melody, groove, storytelling, and emotion, and his affinity for combining elements of his own Jewish heritage with music of the African diaspora, jazz, hip-hop, and folk. Jesse has performed with many notables in the jazz, pop, and world music scenes, including Mino Cinélu, Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Grace Kelly, and Takuya Kuroda. He has released eight records as a leader, including his Herbie Hancock/Head Hunters tribute Vein Melter (Tru Thoughts, 2015) — jointly created with saxophonist/arranger Sly5thAve — and most recently, his covers project Flipped II (self-released, 2018), which features modern groove-based re-imaginings of favorite compositions by Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and more. We chatted with Jesse on how he uses Sequential instruments in his music."

"In this demo some eurorack sounds based on the VCA-AB.

One VCA-AB is used as a ring modulator. A pulse from the first VCO modulates the VCA. The sawtooth of the second VCO passes through the VCF. One ADSR controls the VCF and a second ADSR controls a second VCA."

Virtual ANS 3 for Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, & Android

Published on Jun 2, 2019 Alexander Zolotov

"Demo of the new Virtual ANS 3.0 spectral synth. Now with MIDI mapping, polyphonic synth mode, AUv3, and many other new features!"


"Virtual ANS is a software simulator of the unique Russian synthesizer ANS - photoelectronic musical instrument created by Evgeny Murzin from 1938 to 1958. The ANS made it possible to draw music in the form of a spectrogram (sonogram), without live instruments and performers. It was used by Stanislav Kreichi, Alfred Schnittke, Edward Artemiev and other Soviet composers in their experimental works. You can also hear the sound of the ANS in Andrei Tarkovsky's movies Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker.

The simulator extends the capabilities of the original instrument. Now it's a full-featured graphics editor where you can convert sound into an image, load and play pictures, draw microtonal/spectral music and create some unusual deep atmospheric sounds. This app is for everyone who loves experiments and is looking for something new.

Key features:
unlimited number of pure tone generators;
powerful sonogram editor - you can draw the spectrum and play it at the same time;
any sound (from a WAV file or a Microphone/Line-in) can be converted to image (sonogram) and vice versa;
support for MIDI devices;
polyphonic synth mode with MIDI mapping;
supported file formats: WAV, AIFF, PNG, JPEG, GIF;
supported sound systems: ASIO, DirectSound, MME, ALSA, OSS, JACK, Audiobus, IAA."
