A bit of Light VS Darkness here, it's so easy to create
COMPLEX sounds! A perfect Hybrid synthesizer!

WMD Geiger Counter PRO vs E-Licktronic. NAVA Rhythm Composer (Roland TR-909 Clone)

Published on Jun 25, 2019 WMDevices

"The WMD Geiger Counter is a Guitar Pedal suited for the desktop.

In this video, we're using the Gegier Pro to Process a mono signal from the NAVA TR-909 Clone drum machine.

From outrageous to subtle, harsh to saturation, the Geiger Counter Pro distortion pedal brings the original guitar pedal into the future with MIDI control, CV, presets, and a ton of new exciting features.

As a desktop effects unit, the Geiger Counter Pro delivers tons of options with a fun to wiggle, knob-per-function interface.

The Dry/wet mix and low pass filter give it another universe full of tones that can be pushed up front or hidden behind the original signal, just for a bit of chaotic shimmer back there."

Tonestar 8106 Outs to Outs Vol. 1, Quadnic & Toolbar 2nd Act

Published on Jun 25, 2019 StudioElectronics

Super high resonance at 1:18. Watch your volume levels!


Get you some 411 on Outs to Outs—go 'head—you can't hurt Studio Electronics modules. Not an exhaustive O2O exploration here, but juicy and compelling. I seem to be stuck on square waves these days, and this 8106 treats 'em right. Quadnic and Toolbar—yes we still might make it—take over the near center, roughly in an appropriate way. Bonus Tonestar Pulse Width to MOD (ENV)—how did I not feature that substantially?—yank the focus back.

DIY State of things: A Brief Tour of Izhar Ashdot's Modular Rig

"A new module I finished building is a good opportunity to show how my DIY modular modules work together with the commercial Eurorack modules and to demonstrate to those who don't use modular how a typical 'Patch' looks and sounds. I recommend using headphones or good stereo speakers.

משתלבים עם המכשירים הקנויים ובכלל, איך נראה ונשמע ׳פץ׳׳ מודולרי טיפוסי.
אני ממליץ להקשיב לסרטון באוזניות או ברמקולים טובים, ב-HD כמובן.

A Most Amazing Analog Filter | Bruel & Kjaer 2107

Published on Jun 25, 2019 HAINBACH

"In which you will see me being happy turning the huge knob of the Bruel & Kjaer 2107 Frequency Analyzer, an incredible vacuum tube amplifier and band pass filter from the 1960s. This was used to analyze signals and vibrations in the most demanding circumstances, but I use it as a glorious overdrive and rich overtone generator. Seriously, this thing sounds a Lagavulin Single Malt by the Atlantic in autumn."
