Published on Aug 10, 2019 Empty Vessel

"Experiments with creating a 303 ish sequenced monosynth in the Bitwig Grid. Drums from 2nd Grid patch, pitch modulated sine wave plus saturation for kick and probability driven sequenced sampler for hi-hat. Slide definitely needs some work. Sorry the performance is a bit rough :)"

Oberheim Matrix 6 | Quick Overview and Sound Examples

Published on Aug 10, 2019 MickMazzMusic

"Quick overview and sound examples of the Oberheim Matrix 6 synthesizer made in the 1980s.

All sounds in the background music (expect for drums) are from the Matrix 6."

The Matrix-6 has something very few synths out there offer control wise - release velocity across the keyboard. You can modulate parameters by how quickly you release keys. It's almost the reverse of poly aftertouch if you think about it. Or a way around it - patents and costs preventing poly aftertouch at the time. BTW, for those that do not know, the Matrix-6 was my first synth and hence my alias, matrix and MATRIXSYNTH. launched back in 1997, before The Matrix movie. :) The green on black comes from the old site and a nod to old computer screens.

Vermona '14: Jam in G

Published on Aug 10, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Hello all. Very busy the past while, hence no posts. But when the Vermona calls, the Vermona calls! Time for a jam on the '14. Great tone: great bass (try with headphones and the bass at the beginning/end will be very prominent). When I'm looking to have some fun/do a melodic/lyrical solo on a mono, it is almost always the '14 I turn to. Other synths have more features, but when it comes to nothing aside from the pure sound, I do have a soft spot for the '14.

Enjoy/all best

"- Arius Blaze of Folktek put together this mini-system with FOLKTEK modules: power, gait, roam (dual a/r), matter ii, alter in walnut case for Moogfest 2019. It was patched up and ready to and I poked and prodded and tweeked out exploring the various realms of sonics. Since it was the first time seeing hearing touching any of these modules in person, i approached it with a naive chaos random factor and loved the sounds i was able to conjure.... Jumped right into my Orgy Of Noise - Bill T Miller weirdo mode and had fun instantly. THANX ARIUS /Folkek & THANX MOOGFEST."

"- Marc Doty of Buchla USA at Moogfest 2019 was incredibly cool and let me plug in my digital recorder and Sheri shot a bit of iPhone video on last day of Moog Marketplace. Marc had the Buchla 200e all patched up so with a lot of heart and a bit of grey matter I explored Doty's presets and tweaked and prodded about with a naive quest seeking further dosed out trip into ORGY OF NOISE atonal abstract weirdo sonic realm.

As I stated in the video the signal was fed from my Minibrute as I have run out of space to mount with my, so far populated PCBs. At present, this will be placed in a post VCA stage, it is also possible to add voltage control by using the spare VCA from the dual VCA CORE board."

Mutable Instruments Ambika (4P and SMR4 filters)

Published on Aug 9, 2019 MIDERA

"So... I purchased this Ambika locally last weekend, thinking it was a 6 voice SMR4 filter unit. Turns out it has 3 4P filters and 3 SMR4 filters. Part of me likes the sound of it, with these different filters... but part of me wants to just return it and buy one with all one type of filter. Not sure what to do, but here's a demo, a way for me to think through what I think about it. I didn't get anywhere."
