Buchla Music Easel - Eagel


Published on Jul 30, 2019 Jae Ryan

"I had this easel patch going that I really liked but I was super rushed for time so I hit record, did a couple takes and picked one of them. It's a little sloppy but I'm fine with that, its a 'performance' instrument after all.

The Easel is getting a little help from a Strymon El Capistan & an OTO BAM."

Awesome shirt! :)

"I am working on a new cover and needed a certain sound. How to get it?: sampling a pipeline.
* * Guess the song I will be covering?. Write it in the comments section. * *
This sample will need some post production though, but It is a good approach to what I need."

Innovex Hammond Condor RSM Wind Instrument Synth w/ Instructions and Extras


via this auction

"THIS SALE IS FOR A VERY RARE INNOVEX HAMMOND CONDOR RSM WIND INSTRUMENT SYNTHESIZER. THIS WAS MADE IN THE 1970s, BUT STILL USED TODAY BY SOME INNOVATIVE ARTIST'S.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THIS UNIT ORIGINALLY CAME WITH, SO I CAN'T SAY IT'S COMPLETE. BUT, I WILL LIST THE ITEMS INCLUDED WITH THIS SALE.

THE "CONDOR" RSM UNIT. THIS IS A SELF CONTAINED LOCKING UNIT THAT COMES WITH 2 ORIGINAL KEYS.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.

3 MODIFIED MOUTHPIECES - TRUMPET, CLARINET, & SAXOPHONE. THESE HAVE ALL BEEN MADE TO ACCEPT A SMALL MICROPHONE IN ORDER TO PLAY THROUGH THIS UNIT.

THERE ARE 3 MICROPHONES, SHURE BROTHERS CA20B's, WHICH WERE NOT SOLD TO SHURE DEALERS, ONLY TO HAMMOND FOR THIS UNIT.

HERE'S SOME MORE INFO ON THESE MICS & THIS SYNTH:

The CA20B was manufactured by Shure from 1968 to 1970. The CA20B had a ceramic transducer element with an output level of -73 dB V at 94 dB SPL / One Pascal. It was sold only to the Innovex division of the Hammond Organ Company. The CA20B was not sold to Shure dealers.

The CA20B attached to the mouthpiece of a wind instrument, like a trumpet, clarinet, or sax. A hole was drilled into the side of the mouthpiece. A brass adapter, with an internal rubber O-ring, was threaded into this hole. The CA20B then threaded into this adapter. The unbalanced, high impedance output signal from the CA20B was carried on a 60" cable terminated in a tip/sleeve 1/8" phone plug. The phone plug connected to the Condor RSM Wind Instrument Synthesizer, made by Innovex. The Condor was based on the electronics of the Hammond orgran and could produce a variety of sounds and effects using the wind instrument as the trigger source. Examples of settings on the Condor: Bass Sax, Fuzz, Cello, Oboe, Tremolo, Vibrato, Bassoon, etc. If the player wanted to use the instrument acoustically, the CA20B would be unthreaded from the adapter and replaced by a brass cap that sealed the side hole in the mouthpiece.

The Condor was not a success and Shure made few of the CA20B. Some players continued to use the CA20B as a horn pick up, connecting it to the input of a guitar amp. Other model numbers associated with the CA20B were CA20, CA20A, RD7458, and 98A132B.

THERE ARE ALSO 2 COVERS FOR THE MICROPHONE HOLES ON THE MOUTHPIECES. THEY ARE INTER-CHANGEABLE.

AND 2 SMALL PADDED ENVELOPES TO HOLD YOUR ACCESSORIES.

AS FAR AS TESTING, I ONLY KNOW THAT IT POWERS ON, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM MY PICS. I ALSO GOT A LITTLE REVERB WHEN ATTACHED TO AN EXTERNAL AMP.

THIS IS NOT AN AMPLIFIER! ONE IS REQUIRED TO MAKE THIS FUNCTIONAL."

River Synths - Dendrites


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

This is the first post to feature River Synths.

"The Dendrites by River Synths is a highly versatile multimode filter with different resonance characteristics and a drive circuit. A very nice colouring audio processing tool, with a certain presence and a musical behaviour."


OVERVIEW
River's Dendrites is a true multi-multi-mode filter. A very nice colouring audio processing tool, with a certain presence and a musical behaviour. The filter modes (16), resonance (3) and overdrive (2) all have different options to choose from - a total of 96 different combinations. And then there are five CV inputs, additional switches, controls and attenuators. The “art” of Dendrites is to never appear overloaded with features, but to always be playable - and to sound very good.

DETAILS
Dendrites is a multimode filter AND phaser. Two of the 16 modes are designed as pure all-pass filters, which can produce a rather deep phaser sound despite being there being only four stages/poles available. Four more modes are a mixture of allpass and lowpass, bandpass and highpass. The remaining ten are one- to four-pole, "pure" variants of LP, BP and HP.

The dry, wood-like basic sound of the discrete transistor circuitry always shines through. By adjusting the input level and the resonance behavior, the Dendrites can be made sharper, softer, thinner, wider, firmer and more fluid. And with the drive activated, it's even quite aggressive.

Each of the three resonance settings plays a role in achieving said characteristics: "Vintage" for soft and round, stronger colouring behaviour. "Q-Comp" regulates the relationship between audio signal and resonance, providing a different presence. And "K-Style" means Korg classics sound and therefore also has a dominant resonance sound and a rather mid centered output.

At the center of Dendrites, however, is a click encoder with which the 16 different filter types can be quickly selected. This is also possible with CV. Also the resonance is CV controllable. AND Dendrites also tracks stable over at least four octaves and can be used as a sine oscillator (with Drive = Waveshaper). With exponential and - for filters rather unusual - linear FM. The FM/Cutoff input is switchable between lin/exp and is bipolar (+/-5V), while its neighbour "Envelope" is designed for unipolar envelopes (0-10V). Both have an attenuator for scaling the input signal.

Especially in the setting "K-Style" it is worthwhile to activate the drive. With the input-gain in the middle position in order to leave some air for the resonance. With vintage resonance on the other hand and especially in 4P-lowpass mode you can and should move the input gain to past 3 o’clock. "Q-Comp" has a different presence that allows for settings moving subtly between 9 to 12 at the input and thus working out different shades of saturation.

Dendrites reminds in many settings of classic synths. But you will also notice that it's a unique, self-designed and modern circuit - especially the way it saturates and how agile it can be with fast modulations ... and with how little background noise there is!

North Coast Synthesis - MSK 007 Leapfrog Filter


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

"The Leapfrog follows its own path - the filter architecture is very unusual and powerful. The slope steepness is always at least -61dB per octave - hardly any other module is able to take such a hard grip on incoming audio signals."

Funkstill - Filter Threek 13700


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

This is the first post to feature the Funkstill brand.


"Filter Threek is a unique multimode VCF. It combines low-pass, high-pass and / or all-pass stages to process sound. The sound character ranges from beefy to nasal. Colorations reminiscent of a Phaser effect are possible as well. The resonance could be described as very muscular. There are six filter combinations available. Thanks to several inputs and outputs, you have a total of twelve operation modes at hand, though. A very important feature of the Filter Threek: You can crossfade between all the filter modes. A flexible CV routing system guarantees very dynamic results."

ACL - Sinfonion (all ACL patch)


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

"ACL's Sinfonion in one of the simplest applications imaginable - here three oscillators are played in different chords and the audio signal is then processed with the Dual State Variable VCF. ACL's QLFO controls the cutoff and resonance of the dual filter. No effects, only different chords selected by hand."

CG Products - Noise VCA


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

"The CG Products - Noise VCA. This little module has a lot to offer, you get a nice multimode filter, VCA and noise source - just add an envelope and a VCO and you have a full synth voice. Here we used the CG Products XR22 VCO and an envelope from Maths. At the end of the audio chain there is a little bit of Erbe-Verb. The modules by Christian Günther are hand assembled here in Berlin."

Niio - Iotine Core 4


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

"The Iotine Core 4 is a fully analog, voltage-controllable audio processor with three differently equipped and combinable channels.

Here we show the unit in combination with an Acidlab Drumatix and the Haken ContinuuMini.

Two signal paths are equipped with a smooth sounding multi-mode filter, an extremely flexible saturator and a low-noise VCA. The difference: Each channel offers a unique combination of seven (!!!) saturation and distortion circuits. The third signal path features a multimode filter and a frequency divider / multiplier with distortion capabilities. Furthermore, there is a HAR envelope and an envelope follower. The modulators can not only influence the cutoff of one or more filters, but are also usable to create compressor and expander / gate effects.

Even though the video already shows a lot of action, the Iotine Core 4 can be much more subtle as well as much more brute if you want it to be. Very very versatile!"

Frequensteiner, WMD PDO and Soundmachines Lightstrips


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

Mike Brown's creations live on.

"In this short video we show that with just four modules and a small case it is possible to build an unusual percussion/sequencer box that is played via two Soundmachines LS1 Lightstrips. The Phase Displacement Oscillator gives us the possibility to create something like a repeating four step trigger sequence, when tuned down to LFO territory. These four events then ping the filter. In the end of the video there are also some filter-sweeps by the legendary Livewire Frequensteiner! We have added some effects to the main output."

The Metasonix RK6 -12db low pass tube filter


Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

"The Metasonix RK6 is a low-pass filter based on a tube-design. In this video we show one of the great strengths of this module - adding warmth to digital oscillators. Our sound source in this example is the E-355 - we send the signal alternately directly into the mixer and through the RK6 and then into the mixer. No other effects are used. Why are we doing this? That's what Phil can explain best:

"Often customers ask me how to add some warmth to a digital signal or sample. I never really had an answer ready, because many devices saturate and distort nicely but lack in delivering on precisely this cliché. When it comes down to it, to make it sound warm all the ugly, cold and overexaturated parts of the signal should be eliminated. The beautiful parts should be captured and enhanced. The Metasonix RK6 closes this gap like a hero. Listen to the linked Video below to hear how it forms a round piece of music from of a cold, stiff wavetable sequence. The 2nd part of the video contains pure Metasonix DNA.

Conclusion: It is ugly but closes a crucial gap in your soul."
