Circlefade CFM2 All-in-One Semi Modular Synth

Circlefade also brought us the CF1M stand alone sequencer and VCV modules.

Target price for the CFM2 350€. It is currently in design.

via Circlefade:

"The CFM2 packs the fundamental features of modular synths.

With it, you can create complex sounds and experience Eurorack, no other gear needed.

Things you can do with the CFM2

Built in sequencer
No need for a keyboard or external sequencer. You can create rhythms and sequences with the knobs and push button interface, like on a drum machine.

Complex sounds
The CFM2 has a macro oscillator, inspired by Mutable Instruments Plaits and Erica Synth wavetables. You can select sounds from 8 different banks, and change their frequency and harmonics. Perfect to create basic sine and triangle waves, as well as more complex sounds like acid basslines or ambiant pads.

Techno Jam with sweet IIIP Moog Modular Synth, 2 DFAM and a Roland TR8s Drum Machine

Premiered Aug 28, 2019 Sound Provider

"During this Techno Dawless Jam Session in Nick de Friez Studio, Leonard de Leonard is enjoying the beautiful IIIp Moog Modular Systems when Nick is doing the beat with 2 DFAM ( Drummer From Another Mother ) a Semi-Modular Analog Percussion Synthesizer from Moog again and a TR-8s DrumMachine from Roland.

During this session we have some little chaotic moment , but I think we have enough material to release a good old school Techno Track after some edits :D

For info, the Key just in from of the big ModularSynth is the Tri-timbal, Polyphonic analog Synthesizer "Moog One" , we use it a lot during the session but not on the video, Sorry

Thanks Dom for the shooting ;)"

"I go through a trouble shoot my old keyboard to get it back up and running. I also take some time to research and go over some of the internal hardware that is used to make such awesome sounds.

This keyboard had received water damage ( I'm hoping that was water )

I followed the 8-bit guys style of video since I had to repair the keyboard anyway. I think it came out great. This is a very nice keyboard and one of my prized possessions."

New News Site Label

For those that actually use the labels on the site, I'm creating a new News label.

You might be familiar with the New Gear labels. The label didn't cover news like upcoming events and the recent BMF raffle, so I'm creating a new News label for them.  The label will cover everything perceived as News including New Gear announcements and teasers.
