MiMa feat. Boards Of Canada - Roygbiv

Published on Jun 9, 2019 mima14031985

"Here I am with a video of that beautiful BoC's music piece. And there's a special guest here, my latest acquisition: an Oberheim OB-8 :-D

Like my previous Thriller and The Unknown Song videos, this one too is not a live show, as I want to experiment with video editing and improve my skills with that. I did from scratch the entire song in Reaper as usual playing all parts by hand (with the exception of the rythm of course), then I filmed myself playing the single parts as I would've played them for a live video (so paying attention to the timing, to avoid bump notes, etc...) and put them together in the final video, with the music rendered from my Reaper project as audio background.

All the parts you hear in the tune are from the keyboards as seen in the video. So the bass really is from the OB-8, the lead from the Jupiter 6 and the piano from the Nord Electro 3. For this last sound I used a piano sample from the Clavia's Mellotron library, as I found it suited to give that typical BoC's lo-fi vibe to the tune. To increase the lo-fi effect I added some white noise too, with different noise tracks recorded for the left and right channel, to emulate tape noise, and a good dose of dynamics compression.

As I found the original BoC's tune a bit too short I made my version a little longer by repeating one more time the last 8 measures, making a couple of changes to it (I removed the kid's voice saying "Hey" and reverted the lead sound back to the one heard at the beginning) and adding a string pad slowly fading in and then out as the whole tune fades away too.

This video exists thanks to a dear friend of mine that some time ago made me discovering Boards Of Canada. Thank you Andrea!"

"Yet another experiment on the Buchla 200. This one is exploring the MARF, and using the 'stage address' cv input to randomise the way it selects the notes. This thing is so cool

ALSO! I've just noticed that I have got 1000 subscribers, thanks to everyone who has subbed - I'll try and keep my synth related sketches coming...

Origami Custom Osc NO TALK demo // Korg Prologue

Published on Jun 9, 2019 Ron Cavagnaro

"This is an improvised demo of the Custom Oscillator 'Origami' for the Korg Prologue / Minilogue XD. Origami uses wavefolding to create complex waveforms. With this demo we also used a novation circuit for the drums, roland mx1 to mix and add live MFX, and the sequence on the prologue was made with synthstrom deluge.

Origami can be acquired for free on their webpage by signing up to their newsletter."

"The Origami oscillator uses wavefolding to create complex harmonic distortion from basic waveforms. The input waveform to the wavefolder can be varied between a sine wave and an asymmetrical waveform (triangle/flattened sine) to change the basic timbre. This waveform is then fed into the wavefolding algorithm where the amount of folding (SHAPE) increases the gain at the input of the wavefolder.

A DC offset control pushes the waveform more into the top half of the wavefolder, that can vary the harmonic distribution between even and odd harmonics. The main LFO-to-Shape modulates this DC Offset (note: not the SHAPE/wavefold control itself) – which tends to create odd/even harmonic oscillation.

An additional Origami ADSR envelope can modulate the input gain of the wavefolder with the Envelope Amount control. Attack, decay, sustain and release are adjustable. This adds further movement of the produced harmonics allowing for complex evolving textures and pads.

Eurorack Modular Ambient Album Composition Session

Published on Jun 9, 2019 DreamsOfWires

"Eurorack Modular work-in-progress: AJH MiniMod system with Ring SM & Sonic XV, plus Frequency Central XVCO, State 700 & Wave Runner. Sequencer: Arturia Keystep, recorded using AUM on an iPad with EOS2 reverb.

I held back on sharing this one as it was the start of an idea I was developing for the next 'tomorrow the cure' album, which will consist of entirely analog, 'live' tracks (single take, no overdubs), but I've altered my Eurorack rig a little since recording this, so I'm re-thinking some of it. See my previous two uploads for my current modular setup:

I'm considering making a video regarding why I got into modular synths, if anyone is interested. I can't afford to do both modular and standalone synths at the moment, especially now that the screen on my MacBook just died and will cost me a comparative fortune to fix or just retire completely.

If you'd like to help me continue this channel please consider purchasing my music on Bandcamp, or supporting me on Patreon, where I occasionally upload exclusive videos (alternative takes/versions, etc) and might start uploading some 'guide' videos explaining how I do things if I get enough supporters. Bear in mind that creating videos takes a lot of time and effort, so I have to be able to justify it somehow.

Thanks for watching and reading."

KORG volca nubass - First jam

Published on Jun 9, 2019 iamtheswordmaster1

"I happened to get my hands on the volca nubass, a vacuum tube powered analogue bass synthesizer. It is actually the first synthesizer ever featuring a Nutube (the latest vacuum tube technology developed by KORG). This tiny little thing can sound REALLY mean!

In this clip, I'm basically fooling around with the filter, the envelopes, the saturation and drive effects. Especially the sequencer functions "Accents", "Transpose" and "Slides" are coming in really handy when creating some typical acid bass lines. I'm loving the fact, that you can randomize all these three functions separately on the fly. So, you can create interesting variations of the original bass line or get completely new ideas with the hit of a button.

I just added a little reverb from the KORG KAOSS PAD KP3. The drums are coming from the volca sample."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #69: Kawai K1r - Song 1

Published on Jun 9, 2019 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the K1r. It's a 16 voice 8-part multitimbral synthesizer based on 256 PCM waveforms. One interesting feature is the ringmodulation (AM) between two oscillators.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
K1r - Alesis Ampliton - Alesis Philtre - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Oberheim OB-XA w/ Foot Pedal

via this auction

"Beautiful example from the dominant 1970's Oberheim brand. I have owned this OB-XA for the a couple of years now, and it has been cared for and stored in my home, away from any deleterious situations and substances (i.e. smoke, sea air, bat guano). This particular OB-XA has been professionally fitted with MIDI I\O back in the USA, has a 120 factory program memory, and comes with numerous spare chips and components, printed service manual and user manual, an OG Oberheim OB-XA pedal and a less than OG but much newer vinyl cover. I will also provide step-down transformer to 240 V from the synthesizers' 120 V output."

Oberheim OB-8

via this auction

"This example includes the original manual and the software update manual that was included when updated in 1984. Besides the update, this synth is 100% original and works perfectly. In tune, all sounds and functions work properly, and has very awesome MIDI capabilities...a real piece of magic. Besides a scuff on the face, this unit is excellent and if not for the few scuffs it has this example would be nearly mint."

Yamaha CX5M II Music Computer MIDI DX7 FM synth and YK-01 Keyboard

SNs 001107 & 015136

"The CX5M II has an upgraded Yamaha DX FM system, the SFG-05 which supports MIDI input and thus allows the internal FM synth to be played by any external MIDI keyboard. The keyboard does not need any additional software or cartridges to play music or connect to MIDI."

I heard the original CX5M FM synth engine was 4-Op vs. the DX7's 6-Op. Anyone know what the CX5M II was. The listing implies it's the DX7 and the video above shows the CX5M II patch editor for the DX7, but is the internal sound engine 6-Op as well, or does it just allow editing of the DX7's 6-Op engine?

Logic Noise Klangorium DIY Glitch Synth by Elliot Williams

via this auction
"On offer here is a PCB to build your own DIY synth based around CMOS chips, it is based on a series on the Hackaday website by Elliot Williams, I made a few of these and had a few boards left over, last couple remaining.

It can be used to make all manner of things, examples include drum machines, drone synths, sequencers and so on, or it can just be built as a playground as intended for further prototyping, it is up to the builder. It can be built as a complete project, or just the sections you require, it can be built into a suitable case as a standalone instrument for example a drone synth, with the controls on flying wires rather than soldered directly to the PCB etc.

It goes without saying that you will need to have a fair amount of experience and the tools and parts required to build this, I would not recommend it to complete beginners. No documentation other than what is in this listing is provided, so if this is not enough then this pcb is not for you.

Parts to complete the build are not supplied, you need to source them yourself and budget for the cost of those, I think it ended up costing me about £15 in parts to build, but it depends on what components you buy and where you buy them from.

NOTE: This is purely a DIY project and I offer no technical support, search for the project page at the hackaday website (klangorium logic noise) - ebay forbids me to post the link unfortunately for some bizarre reason, which is why I had to end the previous listing with the web link.

It's too bad the Nextel paint on the Waldorf models that have them do not hold up over time. These were gorgeous when first released.

"All buttons and encoders are responsive but I haven't tested fully, but reading forums these things rarely go wrong without use - its is a virtual analog synth after all! In any case I had my tech go over it just to make sure its all tickety boo and apart from the obvious signs of wear and tear as seen in the pictures its good to go.

MicroBrute SoloTape - "Contribute" (EP Pormo)

Published on Jun 9, 2019 Gomag

"The "Solo Tapes" project is nothing more than just single synth challenge. It was started off by Wojtek Paul at the beginning of 2014. 5 years later (!) Wojtek decided to begin to release recordings from such unusual affair. The project aims to show what can be achieved with just one simple synthesizer.
First part of the project (Solo Tapes #1) consists of 3 tracks and a bonus, recorded using Arturia MicroBrute (tracks #1 and #2), Waldorf NW1 (track #3) and Quasimidi Technox (bonus track) respectively. Everything you can hear on a given track comes from the single instrument that served as the sound source for. Sounds were not edited in any way, so you can experience not only instrument's recordings on the fly, but also learn how instrument's imperfections can be made a performance supporting act.
And the tracks turned into the rich in content piece of electronic music art. Check this out!
Will you join the challenge and try to make a whole track using one synth only?
We hope that it will be a good source of inspiration for you!"
