Alesis A6 Andromeda - Exploring the Filters

Published on Aug 25, 2019 ProckGnosis

"Got the A6 cleaned up last month, and while I was testing it out and playing with it, I thought I'd do a quick video discussing how the filters are set up. Playing with the synth starts at 2:15, and the more technical explanation starts at 12:30. As frequently happens with me, the video didn't turn out to be so quick.

The A6 truly is an awesome synth, and it's programmable as hell. Though I call it an analog synth in the video, and it does have a all-analog signal patch (minus the effects), it's really sort of a analogy-digital hybrid, because all of the controls of the analog signal are executed in the digital domain. That doesn't stop it from sounding great through."

Todd Barton Red Panel videos with a soft synth

Published on Aug 25, 2019 Martin Pavlas

"A frequent question is if MIDI controller will work with soft synths and VSTs. Here is a short demo of using MIDI CC with Absynth 5. For more information visit is connected to Mac with a USB cable and ESI KeyControl 25 is connected to Electra's USB host port.

Three MIDI CCs are used to control Absynth 5's oscillator frequency, filter cutoff and resonance."

Introducing reSEMble

Published on Aug 25, 2019 Randy Piscione

"This is the maiden voyage of reSEMble, a single-panel, single-voice synth inspired by the Oberheim SEM, for Eurorack. More info below.

This is a prototype panel, home made (obvious I know) but the building blocks are available from PM Foundations. The panel is currently in Front Panel Designer, but I have not ordered one yet. The 'modules' can be built as standalone Eurorack modules or built behind the reSEMble panel. There is no point-to-point wiring. All connections are made with ribbon cables that run from the back of each module to a single busboard.

We haven’t decided how to market / sell it yet, or even if there is enough demand to bother, but I’m definitely making another one for myself. The 3 VCOs, VCF and two EGs are based on the SEM, but, in addition to a 3rd VCO, there are a few other enhancements, including an expanded LFO, Noise, sample and hold, a wavefolder and more modulation and routing options.

This is not a clone of an SEM. Unlike someone who shall remain nameless but whose initials are UB, we actually sent a note to Tom Oberheim, who forwarded our note to a friend of his, who spent some time on the phone with me. He encouraged us to take Tom’s work and build on it, which we did. The combination of toggles and expanded module functionality replace approximately 80 patchcords."

Chock Full o' Filters

Published on Aug 25, 2019 juanito moore

Juanito Moore is the man behind Modular for the Masses, and will be part of the speaker line-up at Knobcon this year.

"Hardware Jam weekend challenge. The challenge was to use filters, filters filters FILTERS!!! I used filters as oscillators and as a little bongo drum sound, and of course to modify the drums and keyboard noodling. Now, a high quality filter will self-oscillate in a very pure sine wave, which doesn't have any harmonics for a 2nd filter to work with, so I needed to use a square wave for the "keyboard" part. Square waves have lots of harmonics to filter out in interesting ways. Check out the cheap Chinese reverb effects module -- these modules are SO GOOD. Highly recommended.

Waldorf Nave & Eurorack Jam (iOS/iPad + Analog Modular Synth)

Published on Aug 25, 2019 DreamsOfWires

"A rough session revisiting an old recording I made using Nave and Magellan on the iPad a couple of years ago, this time using the AJH MiniMod system for real analog synth sounds.

The original Magellan patch used 6 VCO's and 4 filters in parallel (audio sent to 4 different filters). This Eurorack version uses 3 VCO's and 2 filters in series (output of one filter into the next), although the second is a dual filter (AJH Gemini - Dual mode) and is being used to create a stereo effect/movement.

The output of the Transistor Ladder Filter is sent to the Gemini, and I'm using it's Freq (cutoff) to find sweet spots.

I created the Nave patch myself, and it uses the built-in arpeggiator. Midisteps (iPad app) is sending note information to Nave's arp, and patterns to the Expert Sleepers FH-2, which is sending CV/Gate to the modular synth.

Recorded initially in AUM on an iPad, then exported to Reaper DAW for delay, reverb, lose mixing.

MiniBrute 2S & VCV Rack - First Patch

Published on Aug 25, 2019 Omri Cohen

That rack with the screen makes me want a large slim virtual rack.

"Oh boy... Arturia sent me the MiniBrute 2S and the RackBrute 3U (thank you Arturia!), and this is literally my first patch with it. I opened the boxes, connected everything, and built this patch. I'm still not really using the RackBrute, but I have a feeling that it will not take long until this case will be full...
Anyway, I'm planning to do a "how does it work with VCV Rack" kind of video so let me know if there is anything specific you would like to know, and I will do my best to include it in the video.

Analogue Solutions PRO TIP: Impulse Command Controlling Pitch via the 16-Step Sequencer

Published on Aug 25, 2019 Analogue Solutions

"Analogue Solutions Impulse Command PRO TIP!

The IC's 16-step CV sequencer is primarily used for modulation since the MIDI Note Loop sequencer would ordinarily be used for note control.

However, you can patch (with a cable!) the CV sequencer output to
the Pitch control input jack if you want the step sequencer to also control pitch.

Note: we do not sell the LED patch cables. The blue panel is a very limited edition version.

Have fun!"

"Inspired by the Ondes Martenot (1928) and the Electro-Theremin (1950), the ET-4 is controlled by moving a finger along a reference keyboard shaped to provide tactile feedback. Dual pressure sensitive intensity keys control the amplitude of the ET-4's two independent analog oscillators. Combined with a low-pass filter, white noise generator and internal spring reverb the ET-4 is an expressive and versatile performance instrument. The is the standard model, the adds an effects loop and other features and the also adds MIDI over USB output. Every ET-4 is individually hand crafted in Canada using high quality components and select North American Walnut."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 SSM Synthesizer

via this auction

Same wall as this one.

"Prophet 5 Rev 2 that looks great and functions even better #0184. Recently serviced and fully restored.

The only non original cosmetic part on this Prophet 5 is the large logo that goes over the power supply. You have to replace those in order to service and upgrade the power supply. (this one has been upgraded to run cool) The logos, knob caps (some wear), even the wood is original. This is serial number #0184 making it an early Rev 2 if not the earliest.

Cosmetically this synth is in very good condition. The only thing I have done to it over the years is treat the wood as it got pretty dry. Both sides of the center spreader have come loose and cracked at some point years ago. I had a Gibson Custom Shop guitar luthier friend repair it with hide glue and touch it up and it is barely noticeable. (pictured both sides, you cannot really tell unless you study it but it is there)

I got this at House of Guitars in Rochester NY in around 1994. Before the internet all there was to do is wander junky music stores looking for treasure. This was the first Rev 2 I ever got my hands on. Here is what has been done to it over the years to turn it into the turn key restored P5 you see in this listing.

1. All tantalum caps replaced
2. Power supply rebuilt and upgraded to the cooler running version.
3. Original case cracks repaired with hide glue by professional luthier. (all rev 2 cases seem to crack, it is why they changed the design in the rev 3, the wood is all original on this one and in very nice shape)
4. I recently had it gone over completely by a competent tech and it is working 100%
5. Replaced all keyboard bushings. The keys are pretty well balanced but it is hard to get old Pratt-Read keyboards level perfect. They are what they are.
6. One control pot replaced.

The only cosmetic defects worth mentioning on this guy is a faint swirl scratch that I took a close up of that goes over the M in program and the P in Programmer on the face. You can only see it from certain angles and it is faint. Other than that there is just the touched up center spreader edges that look great but if you play detective you can see that they have been repaired. This guy is clean inside and out and has never been abandoned or abused. It looks SHARP and sounds even better."

Serge CGS BOG / Random*Source Edelweiss

Elektron SidStation CMOS 6581 Commodore 64 Synth Module SN D91100353-81

via this auction

"The SidStation is pretty special: it takes the chip used for legendary C64 games like Elite, Paradroid and Boulder Dash and wraps enough pro audio I/O around it to make a studio-ready module that you can drive via MIDI. It’ll do everything from icy PWM leads to gnarly 8-bit pads to bleepy chiptunes, and it sounds like *nothing* else out there. If you’re looking for a unique sound that’ll cut through any mix, this is it.

This one’s in perfect nick: I’m the second owner, and in the 12 years I’ve had it, it’s been carefully looked after in a smoke-free studio. I’m selling reluctantly, and only because I’m rationalising my gear for 2 live setups, and the SidStation’s too temperamental for live use!

It comes with a slightly battered copy of the original manual and an aftermarket power supply that’ll put out exactly the right current. However, I’d highly advise also using it with a power conditioner if you’re running it from a domestic wall socket - SidStations do not like wavering voltages or power surges!"

Yellow Orange (Synth Jam) Roland XP80 with RPS

Published on Aug 25, 2019 bitleyTM

"I finally learned how to use the Roland XP80's built in RPS (Realtime Pattern Sequencer) functionality so here I am triggering four sequences on the fly; two drum patterns, two simple background synths, a baseline. Jamming on top of this with two pad sounds. RPS is actually a cool function which kind of brought an Ableton vibe to this "JV-1080 with keyboard" about four years before Live was released. Roland is a company making synthesizers — often adding an extra edge over the competition. (XP30, 50, 60, 80 and JV-1010, 1080, 2080 are similar & fully compatible instruments from about 1994-1998, later replaced by the Fantom series). The movie was edited with MovieMator Pro. Quite cool — but the rendering / processing took almost 20 hours so it was the slowest Mac application I ever tried."

Published on Aug 25, 2019 LESINDES

"There is a little story about the production of this video and why it is called VINTAGE CHAIN or JOURNEY INTO THE PAST. Someone asked me which (modular) oscillator I could recommend him. The reason for that was that a friend had send him some Schulze-like, Berlin School demos. Not his style but still he was so much impressed by how convincing simple practically invarient arpeggios and short sequencer lines could be if they just had this vintage sound vibe to them. That made him doubt his modular setup. I dropped a few names then. But asked him also to send me the tracks causing his doubts. Hearing them I immediately knew what he meant the special vibe was and I also had an idea what the essence of this VINTAGE SOUND could be.

The result is this video. I took DREADBOX EREBUS II as a very sweet sounding modern fully analog synth. But that's not enough it's only half way to the past. The other half is the ANALOG CHAIN after the synth. Erebus has a built in echo which is nice and handy but it's digital, it is also a bit dirty which makes really enjoyable but still, this is not the color we were looking for (you can hear the difference in the video), alright, so I took an ARIA AD-05 which is just average of that era but it's vintage and as sooon it is in the chain our sound was gaining more and more ground! All vintage recordings were made through a mixing desk, so as the last part in the signal path I inserted a NEVE 1073 clone which is doing faily well. First of all for its transformer balanced I/Os responsible for the candy in the sound and used a little bit of its famous EQ but just a little bit.

I stopped here and the audio was directly handed to the RME UFX. And I think it is sounding already quite convincing and pleasant

In order to complete this vintage process a tape multitrack machine and a tape master recorder should be used. Also a compressor could be hooked up.

The musical wiring is very simple. ARTURIA KEYSTEP is playing the arpeggios and triggering the EREBUS II via Midi."

"Hey Pedalheads!

It's comparision time! I love both of my Oceans11 from Electro-Harmonix and my Fathom from Walrus Audio for their differences. They share a few (3 or 4 with the hidden mode of the Fathom) modes in common: Hall, Plate and Shimmer/Sonar. I thought it may be helping some to have a side by side comparision. I use a personnal preset of my trusty SE-02 from Studio Electronics and Roland."
