The Delaydelus 2 by Bleep Labs

Published on Jun 19, 2019 Bleep Labs

"The Delaydelus2 is a modular friendly follow up to our original sampler/delay instrument.

By Daedelus and Dr. Bleep with graphic design by Trek Matthews

Preorder it now at

• Stereo 16bit 44kHz audio i/o
• Banana plug patch bay allows you to play up to 4 samples at once triggered from the two arcade buttons or trigger inputs.
• Control the speed and direction of the samples with the knobs as well as the CV FM (-5V to 10V) input
• CV envelope follower out (0-8V) based on audio playback level
• Trigger outs (10V) from each sampler button.
• One shot mode, Gate (mpc style) mode, + Send external audio through the built in 1 second stereo delay.
• Record into one of 10 banks. Each can hold up to 17 seconds of high quality audio.
• Delay sync in and out with the ability to divide and multiply incoming sync rate.
• Micro SD card slot allows loading and saving WAV files to and from the 10 banks.
• Built-in new samples from Daedelus
• Powered by a 12V DC adapter - included.

First 90 units will ship by September and will include a limited edition pin designed by Trek Matthews

Is it a module? The Delaydelus 2 is a stand alone unit that can send and receive standard CV and triggers for a eurorack modular or anything else. Self patching is encouraged. The device takes -5 to 9V CV inputs, triggers over 3V, sends 10V triggers, and sends 0-8V CV out Audio in and outs are line level AC coupled.

Is it an effect? Yes you can use it as a stereo delay effect with one of the 2 through modes. Delay times of the left and right channels are independently adjustable.

Can I send signals directly into the banana jack patch bay? Yes if you are using a banana jack system the samples can be triggered directly but the two devices must be grounded. One way to do this is by using one of the ⅛” jacks which is why the ⅛” trigger inputs are an easier way of externally triggering the device."

Punked 1980 Electro Harmonix EH-400 Mini-Synth

via this auction

"This one is beat up because they were fragile units, much like the EDP Wasp. There are two cracks on the sides of the plastic housing but it still feels pretty solid. Some of the sliders are a little crackly (noisy) when moved. There have been various repairs on the unit so it is now in good working shape.

Also, it is missing it's speaker, so you'll need to use the audio output."

Looks like someone etched an anarchy symbol into the touch keys. Also some other characters.

Arturia MICROFREAK (2) - AMBIENT CUSTOM patches demo

Published on Jun 19, 2019 Alba Ecstasy

15 #ambient #patches I made since yesterday, when my Arturia #Microfreak has arrived.
Actually, I made 16, but the recording has stopped immediately after the 15th patch. You'll hear all the patches when I'll release them (soon!).

I used some delay from Neunaber Slate.

Arturia MicroFreak it's a MF (as Samuel L Jackson would say!) little box!
If you're familiar with the Mutable Instruments Braids, you'll recognise some textures and the SEM filter is just on my taste.
This is a crazy/weird machine as it said on the box! But, as you may see, it can also behave as a "regular" synth.

BURG - Jeremiah (eurorack, digitakt, strymon)

Published on Jun 19, 2019 ollilaboratories

If you like my stuff please support me on and

#eurorack #moogmusic #tb303

BURG is back with a new track! :) This time I wanted to make a bigger sounding song than the recent strymon session in a slightly higher tempo (117 bpm) but trying to keep the mood very minimal, e.g not overusing the instruments and overlapping too much but still keep the main vibe. Possibly that this one could fit during an early morning dancefloor? :D

There are a lot of things going on in this track.. Main sounds are, bass from the KORG volca bass + the Avalon Bassline driving the tune with percussion from the digitakt and modular + some hihats and snare from the TR-8s. A lot of random sequencing and shorter than 16 step sequences helps to build variation in a tune that else could have ended up too static.

Gear used:
- KORG Grandstage
- Moog Subsequent 37
- Clavia NORD Lead A1
- Novation Peak, Arturia Keystep
- Roland TR8s
- Elektron Digitakt, Analog Four
- Abstrakt Instrments Avalon Bassline
- KORG ms-20 mini, Volca Keys, 2x Volca Bass, Monologue

Eurorack Ableton Drum Rack - Ambient exploration

Published on Jun 19, 2019 While We Were Sleeping

"About the patch:
Every Christmas I celebrate not working by investing my free time in a music project. Last year it was the recording of an unrealised album.
This year I was going to top that by actually finishing and realising something.
So I had this plan for the Malekko voltage block for a while and this year I planned to sequence the sequencer.
The patch is a single Oscillator (TH 555) going through varies filters and wave folding and ending in two VCA's.

Tangerine Dream's Johannes Schmoelling meets the PPG-100 at Synthfest France 2019

Published on Jun 19, 2019 yusynthman

yusynthman aka Yves Usson is the man behind DIY & Arturia's Minibrute line of synths.

"During the recent SynthFest France 2019 in Nantes I had the great joy and honour to demonstrate my rare PPG-100 modular synthesizer to Johannes Schmoelling (Tangerine Dream 1978-1982, Loom) and Kurt Ader (musician and sound-designer at KApro). It was an exhilarating moment for me to demo TD like sequences before a former member of Tangerine Dream... I felt like in heaven ! This videao was shot by Nicolas Jalabert."

Description for the third video:
"During the Synthfest Fest France in France (june 7th to 9th 2019) I exhibited a very rare PPG-100 analog modular synthesizer (something like 10 units built in 1974). The keyboard is played by Tony Quenneville and the video was shot by Tarek Lule. On some motion of the camera you may catch a glimpses of an Emulator 2, a CMI Faitlight, ARP 2500 and ARP 2600 modulars, an 8 voices Schmitt and Synclavier controller that were also on display and test in the same room.

Au cours du récent SynthFest France 2019 à Nantes j'ai eu la joie d'exposer mon vénérable modulaire PPG-100 (arar, seule une 10aine a été fabriquée). Le clavier est joué par Tony Quenneville et la vidéo éalisé par Tarek Lule. Selon les mouvements de la caméra vous pouvez appercevoir furtivement un Emulator2, un Failight CMI, un ARP2500 et un ARP2600 ainsi qu'un Schmitt 8 voies et un contrileur de Synclavier..."
