Radioaktivnost nuclear stochastic MIDI sequencer


"Radioaktivnost is a one-of-a-kind MIDI sequencer for software and hardware synthesizers.

If you are interested like me, in randomness and science (especially nuclear), this little toy may give you many hours of fun.

Radioaktivnost is a 16 step sequencer clocked by radioactive decay.

You can use a real Geiger counter, or – maybe, while you wait yours from ebay – use the internal simulator.

Those who are familiar with analog step sequencers will feel quite at home with Radioaktivnost.

There are 16 steps (you can use 1 to 16 steps) and every step can trigger a note on (0 ~ 127).

You can set the sequence forward, backward, palindrome or random.

You can also listen to the geiger sound and watch the counter and take a measure the old school way:

Start the counter and a stopwatch at the same time and see how many counts you get in 60 seconds.

Tone* Toolbar 8106 - Rach Leader

Published on Jul 15, 2019 StudioElectronics

"First off, kudos to Sergei Rachmaninoff for 99.96% of this most lovely of all Adagio melodies (Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18). Perhaps it survived my tempo/time signature/bar line/timbre liberties better than… #nevermind

Maybe I’ll win my 1st Glinka Award and 1,001 roubles.

Taking a break from baseline-driven dems, I started out with raw waves from patched from oscillator MIX to the VCA IN—normally a normalled affair. From there a mix/blend of raw and filtered tones make their way through an electronic forest of additional internal patching—some involving audio rate modulation from the Toolbar—Pulse Width Vibrational Therapy, and DRIVE and FEEDBACK-fortified flora and fauna interaction… more or less RESONANCE’d.

All the pretty pretty waves are visible (A=432 Hz); I’ll have to incorporate Somatic images to fully capture their beauty and transcendence in the near future. 3d, multicolored encoding to be uncovered.

Roland R8 / R8M percussion grinding patch box

Published on Jul 15, 2019

"The R8/R8M percussion grinding patch box is an external patchbay case that plugs into the main unit via the sound ROM expansion ports using a custom sound card as an interface. This allows the creation of circuit bent glitching effects without the need to perform any invasive mods on the machine itself.

The patch box itself consist of a 20 way main patching area and three combination patchable switches / patching multiples . Connections made between the patchbay sockets result in the digital drum sample data being temporarily glitched causing all kinds of bizarre percussion warping and digital brutality to be applied to the audio. Connections can be routed through the patchable switches so they can be turned on and off at the flick of a switch, or via the patching multiples in order to connect several sockets to each other at the same time."

"Improvised sequences with an eastern feel composed after watching this unusual looking full moon out of my window. First synth heard are the kassutronic modules sequenced by a darktime sequencer with glide added by the frequency central trans europa module. Next is the Jasper synth going through the tau pipe phaser and being sequenced by the per|former sequencer midi out to a kenton pro-kadi to wasp interface. The higher note sequence is the boomstar 4075 controlled by cv and gate from the per|former sequencer. Cr8000 drums and mutant bass and snare triggered from doepfer A-157-1 and Vermona random rhythm. Low bass notes from DoepferDark Energy MK1 and maq16/3. Vocal sound is from the Roland V-Synth."

The Mojave Desert Modular Experiment: Patrick Shiroishi

Published on Jul 15, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"In the Mojave Desert Modular Experiment, we worked with local artists to create modular systems suited to their own styles and workflows...despite the fact that none of them had ever used modular synths before. Each artist/group had two weeks to get to know their system and prepare a performance.

Experimental saxophonist Patrick Shiroishi is no stranger to peculiar sounds: his own free improvisations feature unbridled woodwind tones, often augmented with the use of effects pedals. Patrick's modular system, centered around a Make Noise Morphagene, was built to sample and mangle sax signals while acting as a semi-autonomous improvisational partner, co-creating webs of wild noise in response to his playing.

Come by our showroom to try out these systems for yourself, and keep an eye out for more results from the experiment each Monday this month! Read more about Patrick's system and get links to his music here:"

Modor eurorack-Noisy Oscillator & Comb Filter demo

Published on Jul 15, 2019 Dziam Bass

"This video shows sound from the Noisy Oscillator and Comb filter from Modor modules eurorack.

A little added noise from the oscillator from the second voice as you see the knob mix and also subtle filtering from Comb Filter to get a partial flanger effect without too much modulation.

later we got a little more effect with Fb-feedback regulation and a larger delay type, ie a stronger effect on the longer time generated by Comb filter.

Noisy Oscillator module is and oscillator that mixes two signals: a 'regular' wave (sawtooth/square/triangle) and a 'tonal noisy' wave. This adds a special noisy layer over the sound, that adds 'air', grit or dirt, depending on the combinations you make. The MOD parameter acts on the noisy waveforms:

X1L3 SHARD Desktop | Korg Volca Drum | Eurorack

Published on Jul 15, 2019 Nostalgic Ruckus

"The fact that this device exists is a beautiful thing. But maybe that’s just my opinion. This is SHARD.. in desktop form. A brilliantly rethought out design from the original eurorack module. Harsh noise to bring back your grandmas hearing and maybe help your dad’s tinnitus from all those Steely Dan concerts. Amazing module for experimental drums with a VCA also but that’s for another day. Both this and the eurorack version sound the same. This version has more hands on manipulation. Honestly I feel Shard is best played by hand. It’s part of the experience. The ability to throw it is cool too.

I will stop rambling now. Thankful this thing is a thing but I already said that."

CRAFTsynth 2 0 - Using The Delay To Add Movement

Published on Jul 15, 2019 Modal Electronics

Pretty cool.

"Here's a quick video showing you how to use the built-in delay to add movement.

You can use this modulation assignment to create Flanging, Chorusing, Drifting or even Tape Warble with relatively few adjustments. Here we show how to create a slow metallic flanging effect.

This technique also applies to SKULPT synthesiser (and really, any synth with a delay that can be modulated) and can be found in many of the on-board presets of both synthesisers."

Corsynth - C111 Multimode Envelope Generator

Published on Jul 15, 2019 Corsynth

"Basic demo of the new C111 Multimode Envelope Generator."

"The C111 Multimode Contour Generator is a quad analogue envelope generator and modulation source in MU Format. It can be configured to create different kind of envelopes, from AD to ADSR and many more.

The module is composed by four identical envelopes with two operation modes :

AD : Attack – Decay
ASR : Attack – Sustain – Release

These envelopes can be combined by pairs to create envelope shapes that are not possible using a regular envelope generator. Up to six different envelopes are available at the same time.

Other important feature is that each envelope can be set in loop mode. This opens the possibility to use the envelopes as a LFO. The frequency range goes from 60Hz to one cycle every 15 seconds. It’s also possible to combine two envelopes in loop mode to generate complex modulation signals.

C111 main characteristics :

Four independent envelopes with AD and ASR modes
Each envelope can be set in Loop mode independently
Attack time from 1mS to 5 seconds
Decay time from 20 mS to 10 seconds
Gate A-B and Gate C-D are internally connected
Up to six envelopes available at the same time.

All this features make the C111 Multimode Contour Generator a really versatile module that can be used in every patch in your system."
