Lo Pan's Revenge ( A Big Trouble In Little China Synth Tribute) by Everett Dudgeon

Published on Aug 5, 2019 EverettDudgeon138

"Arpeggiator/Sequencer party! I was at the studio this weekend and decided to record a few tunes. John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's score for Big Trouble In Little China is easily one of the best synth scores out there and it features probably the greatest synth setup in history. I decided to do a small tribute using the synths I have. Not a direct cover but there's certainly some motifs and riffs from the amazing score.

Sequential Prophet X Sampler-Slap bass, Middle Eastern percussion, Mandolin and Glass Marimba samples as well as some string, choir, Prophet VS and ethnic instrument overdubs.

Prophet 6-Some filtered pad sounds at the beginning, the iconic "rising brass" stab and some low arpeggiation.

Tempest-Lots of frantic percussion using the built in arpeggiator with both the LM-1 and Linn Drum Samples

It's all in the reflexes. :)

Load Runner-Pulse Synthesizers -Granular synthesizer ideal for creating background sound

Published on Aug 5, 2019 Dziam Bass

"today I have a little bit of creating cool effects with the granular synthesizer Load Runner from pulse Synthesizers.
basically it's a small game with granulation and length, later I raised the pitch up and then down to say how cool results give you granular synth for creating textures or new ambient sounds and backgrounds.
for showing this I also used a little reverb from Black Hole DSP from Erica Synths.

The Load Runner granular synthesizer allows you to load 16bit WAV files from USB flash drive.
The selected sample is a randomly generated source of information on CV and CV.
Grain length and pitch are also controlled via the front panel or CV. Three pitch modes are selectable via the settings menu. The grain amplitude envelope is selectable from 10 shapes.
Also the term 'granular'refers to small snippets of sound ranging from 10 milliseconds to 1 second; each short section of sound is referred to as grain. An amplitude envelope is applied to different grains and textures. When multiple grains are played together, they can form a continuous sound with different characteristics."

Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with JASON MILES

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"As a composer, keyboardist, producer and arranger, Grammy winner Jason Miles has brought to every new project he’s undertaken a boundless sense of curiosity and adventure. No less than Roberta Flack said about him, “Jason Miles has raised the level of excellence for the musicians who have had the good fortune of working with him, myself included. He has enriched the lives of the millions of people who have listened to the music he plays, the recordings he produces, and the countless musicians he mentors and inspires.”

From extensive collaborations with such giants as Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, Grover Washington Jr., David Sanborn, and Marcus Miller, to his own critically acclaimed recordings including To Grover With Love: Live in Japan (2016), Kind of New (2015, with trumpeter Ingrid Jensen), Global Noize (2008), What’s Going On? Songs of Marvin Gaye (2006) and Miles to Miles (2005), New York native Jason Miles has always been a restless seeker. He has shifted seamlessly between a multitude of genres, from R&B to pop to Brazilian music — and even children’s music and country (producing Suzy Boguss’ Sweet Danger) — and, of course, several different strains of jazz, from Latin to fusion.

We chatted with Jason on how he’s using Sequential instruments in his music."

Empress Effects Zoia Modular Synthesizer And Effects Device In A Pedal

Published on Aug 5, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"In this video we used the Zoia first as an effects unit for the Elektron Digitakt, then as a standalone synth voice, and then showed some of the crazy modulated synthesizer sounds it can produce that would be hard to get out of a fixed architecture synthesizer.

The Zoia is a powerful set of sound generators, effects and modulators that can be freely routed into each other with many different control options available. It even has midi in and out for controlling it from a midi sequencer or keyboard. For sound it has stereo inputs and outputs.

Zoia available here:"

Custom Korg Poly 800 Synthesizer with HAWK 800 modification SN 056657

via this auction

"This Poly 800 is not only Custom in appearance, but in functionality too.
Inside are the HAWK 800 mod boards (HAWK 800 and Atomahawk) with custom firmware that add tons of new features, including midi control over all parameters.
This is not the simple "Moog-Slayer" mod. It is WAYYYYY better.

Check out the HAWK 800 website-

If you go here and download the "" file you will find the Owners Manual and Parameter Charts inside the zip.

2.65l is the latest version of firmware and is what's loaded into this machine.

There are even a few features Mike put in this version that I suggested!

Here are some Sample videos:

Videos are of the synthesizer before it was painted. Shown using the midi controller, showing some features of the GUI and some tricks using DAWs to manipulate the MIDI control.

This synthesizer was "overhauled" over the years. It has been taken apart, cleaned and reassembled by a professional aerospace electronics technician (me!). Restoring synthesizers is a hobby of mine I do in my spare time.
The volume knob is not "noisy".. no scratching. The joystick works as it should. EVERYTHING WORKS!"

- a scsi cf card reader in replacement of the floppy disk
- new screen in funky yellow writing on black

We have also spent a lot of hard hours replacing loads of the internal chips, capacitors and all other potential issue components.

I have had many samplers in my time including the EII and nothing sounds like this machine. It's truly one of the most magical samplers I have ever used. No matter what you sample into it, it comes out sounding 3 dimensional.

Included is the CF Card library of Depeche Modes samples plus a whole bunch of other classic samples."

The great Elektron jam! w/ Analog Four MkII, Analog Rytm MkII, Monomachine MkII, Digitone, Zoia

Published on Aug 5, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by Elektron's classic Monomachine and all its surprising features. If you didn't already know, the Monomachine is a discontinued, older machine, and (to the best of my knowledge) nothing in Elektron's line-up can quite replace what it did. Once I was using the Rytm and the Monomachine, it seemed silly not add in the rest of the Elektron team. The Zoia was brought on at the last minute to give that "old VHS" sound to the Digitone.

Elektron Analog Rytm MkII — Samples and drums
Elektron Monomachine SFX60-UW MkII — Master-level effects on the Rytm, plus two synth lines (high lead, chorus saw), plus drums
Elektron Analog Four MkII — Four synths, primarily in "chorus" section (bass, tremolo flute, fast arp, synth string)
Elektron Digitone + Empress Zoia — slower arp

Written and performed within a 24-hour period, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master."
