Free Chiptunes Preset Pack for MOXF (Free download)

Published on Jun 30, 2019 thebrackett

"Hiya folks,
I love classic video game soundtracks and trying to design templates to help me make my own music modeled after the restrictions of various console sound chipsets.

Here's a MOXF preset pack I made that consists of 30 NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis inspired sounds using waveforms that come stock on the board (no flash memory upgrade needed). There's also one PCM downsampled drum kit that should work with all three decently well.

OB-6: Improv in Ab

Published on Jun 29, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Listen to that. Beautiful. Every time I turn on the Obi, music emanates from it. The thing plays itself. The sound from the OB-6 is instant beauty; it is almost impossible to make a bad sound on it. The included patch is one I use quite often: not a stock patch, but one I spent a good while creating (the same patch was used two videos ago on the DFAM/guitar jam).

What a mellow sound. Liszt was of the opinion that Ab was 'the key of love', and he frequently used the key when writing love songs/ballads (i.e his famous Liebestraume #3, among others). It certainly is mellow.

Whilst the video was processing, I was thinking RE 'synth therapy'. Listening to this kind of music certainly chills the mood. Playing this kind of music even more so. Perhaps what we need for world peace is for leaders to jam on an instrument. Or what may be easier would be modular. I propose the UN have a modular wall, and each day, two countries get together and design a patch.

Musicians can have their quirks. For sure. However: I don't know about you, but I've never wanted to blow up fellow musicians.
Especially so ones who I've worked with on patches.

Imagine if Trump and the Ayatollah worked on a patch together. "How can we fight? Listen to the patch we made!". Both the patch design process and finished patch could be televised. I haven't watched TV in a decade or so, but I'd certainly get a TV/tune in to the Political Patch channel.

Modular walls for world peace :)

Back to reality: yes, great sound. Nothing added to the sound post-pro, aside from a fade at the end.

All best

Oakley Sound Systems Goes Eurorack

Oakley Sound has been known for their larger 5U/MU DIY projects. It looks like they are now entering eurorack.

"PCBs are available right now. Documentation is already available but I'll be adding more details on the construction side of things to the Builder's Guides over the next week or so.

I hope to port most of my 5U modules into Eurorack over the next year or two. As well as some newer ideas I want to build."

You can find details on their DIY Eurorack Synthesizer Projects page.


"The 8HP wide fixed filter bank is based on my own human voice module which was first released as a half rack project and then a 5U module some time ago. Those modules were originally based on the human voice presets of the VP-330. This time I've given each of the seven band pass filters its own level pot."

Groovesizer Theremon: Digital Theremin & MIDI Controller

Published on Jun 30, 2019 MoShang

via Groovesizer

"Theremon is a digital theremin and MIDI controller that you can either build from a kit, or order fully assembled. Like a traditional theremin, Theremon is played without physical contact with one hand controlling pitch, and the other volume. In the place of the two antennas found on a traditional theremin, Theremon features two time of flight sensors that accurately measure the distance of the player’s hands from the instrument."

Yamaha EW20 Wind Jamm'r - Wind Controller Electronic Saxophone Synth w/ Midi

via this auction

Update via the comments: "WindJammer does not support the sysex implementation of the WT11, and as far as I remember does not have the secret edit menu available in the WT11"

You can find one previous post featuring the EW20 including a demo here.

"Even More Obscure Than the WT11: the EW20 “Wind Jamm'r Electronic Woodwind”

Not too many people remember this one. Released in 1989 and primarily marketed to high school band students, the EW20 was a Yamaha MIDI wind controller and wind tone generator (a.k.a wind synth) combo set. Neither the EW20 tone generator nor the wind controller where sold separately. The EW20 was actually marketed and sold by Yamaha's band instruments division and this probably has a lot to do with the fact that very few remember it.

The combo set was comprised of the Electronic Woodwind tone generator and a wind controller that was setup similarly to a recorder. Many people, including some from Yamaha, state the the EW20 tone generator is just a WT11 in a significantly less cool case. I have no way of knowing this for sure, but i do know that it was a basic Yamaha four op FM synth module.

The EW20 used a special controller cable to communicate with the tone generator. This cable/connector is NOT the same as the Yamaha WX connector (which in itself is a “special” connector), but rather a cable specific to just the EW20 rig. So if you run across one and consider buying it, definitely verify that the cable is working and in good condition. I'm sure the pin-out can be copied by someone but i would not want to go through the hassle. The EW20 tone generator does have MIDI in, out and thru. Because of this, you can certainly use the EW20 tone generator without the wind controller but keep in mind that you cannot hook a WX7, WX11 or WX5 directly into the EW20 tone generator. You would have to go through a BT7 or similar first and then output the MIDI."

Moog MicroMoog w/ Case

via this auction

" This came from the studio of a composer for Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. It comes complete with the original manual and a cool travel case with blue lining. There are very minor blemishes from wear and tear. Definitely a nice piece to add to any studio collection.

Its a lovely synth capable of a lot of different sounds.
Don't be fooled about the fact that its a single oscillator synth.
You can double the sound and it have also a sub oscillator.
The routing possibilities are almost endless and unique."

New in Box TTSH Panel and PCB Set

via this auction

"Build your own ARP 2600 synthesizer clone with the TTSH kit! This is a new in box TTSH rev. 3 panel and PCB set, just as I received them from Sweden. This is not a complete kit--you will need to source the components and parts to build it and an enclosure to house it (extensive documentation, Bill of Materials, and support is available online). This is a big project, but a rewarding one that yields really sweet results!

Photo of completed synthesizer is shown for reference only--again, this listing is just for the panel and PCB set."

Review: LYRA-8 explained // SOMA LABS

Published on Jun 30, 2019 loopop

"LYRA-8 is a synth that behaves like it's from outer-space. From otherworldy drones to modulations that certainly aren't from Kansas, LYRA-8 isn't like any other synth.

But is that a good thing? Check it out if you're ready to step outside your comfort and into the twilight zone..."

Roland Jupiter-4 40th anniversary extended demo

Published on Jun 30, 2019 synthlegends

"I know this demo is long, maybe much too long. It was difficult to decide, what I can erase. Finally I decided to make a long demo and give a small schedule, so you can choose, what kind of sounds you are interested in.

The Roland Jupiter-4 is a very strong, agressive, massive, but also sweet sounding synth. The sound is really incredible for only one VCO with one Sub-VCO. In this this Demo you will listen to this wide range of sounds.

The Roland JP-4 came out 1978, mine is from Nov. 1979 with the later filter board.

The great features of the JP-4 are:
- extremely fast envelopes
- ultra fast LFO and also slow LFO to get FM sounds and very slow filter sweeps as well
- fantastic sounding filter with ultra fat and sweet self resonance
- stereo chorus, not so strong like in the Juno 6/60, but very musical
- nice arpeggiator with triggering by a sequencer or drum machine
- random S/H filter modulation
- fantastic versatile bender board
- you can trim the 4 voices and slightly detune them on the back of the unit to achieve a really fat sound
- polyphonic portamento

Here is a schedule for getting quick access to the different parts in this video:
0:00 Part 1. Lovely Pads with resonance
3:20 Part 2. Arpeggio fun with different sounds
12:13 Part 3. Aggressive bass sounds
15:25 Part 4. Weird and angry fx sounds
23:17 Part 5. Strings and Pads
33:52 Part 6. Sweet melodies
41:11 Part 7. Orchestral string sounds
45:55 Part 8. Portamento and modulations

I used as FX a GFI Clockwork Delay Pedal, nothing else. There is no additional mastering or equalizing. I think the JP-4 sounds very dry, so a bit delay or reverb is necessary.

Thanks for watching this ultra long video. I hope you enjoy it.
