Return Of Def Con 4 by Everett Dudgeon (Prophet X)

Published on Sep 2, 2019 EverettDudgeon138

"Very quick track I did tonight on the Prophet-X. I've been listening to a lot of scores recently from Christopher Young (Hellraiser, Species, Dorm That Dripped Blood, Def-Con 4, The Power) and I decided to do a quick track in his style. I noticed that, despite not using any synths Young focuses a lot of ambience and atmosphere conveyed. His score for Def-Con 4 showcases this and I wanted to try my hand at something a bit more 'Freestyle' with not a whole lot of traditional structure. I used a lot of "Ambience" and 'Cinematic' samples from the Sequential Prophet X for this piece as well as some Brass, Flute and String effects. Ironically the PX even has a category in the Cinematic section called 'Def-Con'...I couldn't resist using a sample of it at the end. ENJOY!"

Published on Jul 28, 2019 poorness studios

"This is a first take, so it's not perfect... but I like the way it came out. I was messing around with the cassette player I modified and my Roland Juno Gi. It's a definitely moody soundscape. The wow and flutter of the deck adds a lot."

The last video from MsMotif6, aka Crystal of TheSynthFreq, dates back to 2017. It's great to see her back again.

"Solo, original composition by Crystal of TheSynthFreq (TSF) using an original Yamaha Motif 6. This song is written using 9 tracks, no computers, sequencers or pre-programmed parts, drum machines and no looping used. Drums were played by hand using the keys only. Guitar is modulated via pitchbend wheel which is in the foreground (left hand). This song is meant to inspire and also show my passion as an disabled musician for composing/performing.

Novation Supernova saves a prayer

SN 007955 via this auction

"The Supernova from my famous rack! This is a gem. Favorite synth I've ever owned, but it's time to let things go. I hope I don't regret it. I used this rack of synths to produce all of my well-known remixes for J Lo, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Madonna, N'SYNC, and many more. Now you can own it and make great music of your own with it. It's awesome."

Delay Based Effects With The Make Noise Mimeophon

Published on Sep 2, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"There are multiple effects that can all be generated with a delay, these are often called time based effects and they include flanging, chorus, delay, vibrato, looping and Karplus-Strong. Read our Signal article about time based effects for more information:

The Make Noise Mimeophon module combined with an LFO can create all of these delay based effects and more since it has other options like skew, reverse and a reverb like halo effect. With the traditional time based effects used as a starting point you can develop great sounding traditional effects or go off in another direction completely.

0:57 Delay
1:55 Karplus Strong
2:44 Flanger
3:50 Chorus
4:45 Vibrato
5:33 Looping

UFOs over Montreal?

Published on Sep 1, 2019 Jörg Schaaf

"One night I climbed the Mont Royal to look at the city from above. When I wanted to record a small video of the skyline, something strange happened. A glowing object moved from right to left over the city. Of course, I thought of a shooting star. On closer inspection, the whole thing looked very strange.

I believe, I meanwhile have an explanation for the strange light. But I would still like to hear what you think about it. ;-)

Helios Audio Visual Performance Movie

Published on Mar 10, 2015 Altar Records

"Helios - An Audio-Visual Performance Film.

There’s something timeless about the marriage of music and images, with no dialogue. Following in the inspiring footsteps of films such as "Baraka", "Atlas Dei" and "Ashes & Snow", for the last decade Nick Klimenko (aka Chronos) has been carefully curating and combining unique footage in preparation for a similar project. Now at last the results can be seen as video-clips, photos, computer graphics, dance performances and live acts are all woven together to accompany the wonderful ambient music from Altar Record’s "Helios" album ( ) - reworked & remastered into a stunning cinematic experience.

Get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature, intriguing dance forms, ethnic cultures, hypnotic sand drawings, the far reaches of deep space and the miracles of modern technology -in a world that is our own, and yet far, far removed from the rush and chaos of everyday life.

Ten specially selected artists -unique in their talents- were chosen to team up and work on this project to create six complementary chapters. Themes range from the timelessness of Earth’s cultures and beauty, to the stark brilliance of outer space and beyond; from ancient mystic rituals from days gone by, to the primal forces of nature that continue to awe; and from spiritual practice and faith, to universal human feelings of love and devotion.

This engaging yet relaxing film is a gift, lovingly crafted and offered to the world at large via the internet, featuring the creative talents of the Chronos Project team and their ten years of outstanding artistic output.

The movie is available for viewing directly on Youtube ( ). As a bonus you’ll be getting the free digital release of "Music from Helios Film" in its entirety on Bandcamp (in the format of your choice). The release contains new versions of the worldwide supported Helios album - remixed and rearranged with extra drums tracks, live vocals, cello and guitar, all done in a tastefully cinematic way.

Enjoy the Journey!

"Vintage machines are very interesting indeed and not only for their unique sound character, it is also almost always an adventure to review the sound creations or at least compilations of the former user, especially in a synth like CLAVIA NORD MODULAR which still is a nerd machine. Here ar now some of the SOUND I FOUND in the MACHINE I bought last year."

"Here is another quick video. This time I'm focusing on the new expander for Drezno module - Jena. Most of the time it is used as a wavetable oscillator/waveshaper - exploring also phase modulation possibilities. Next, you'll notice a short part where Jena's bit outputs are triggering Percs from our fellow company Polyend. This is possible because there is a special bank of wave shapes designed for percussive duties."

"The Pines" – American Folk LoFi Beats (Korg Volca Sample, FM & Hotone xTomp Pedal)

Published on Sep 2, 2019 Little Music Boxes

"Vocal Sample:

Welcome to The Pines.
This is the third location in which I’ve set up and recorded this arrangement.
All three places had pines. Of course.

This is an old American folk song.
It’s about loss.
About trust.
Life, the mess of it.
And the simplicity of death.

I first heard it when Kurt Cobain first sang it on Mtv Unplugged.
That was a mesmerizing performance.
It really helped me to understand the depths that music can take you.
Any music.
Kurt was a punk rock hero...
And he used folk music to say goodbye, in a way.
Just five months after that recording, Kurt died.

Behringer VC340 Vocoder demo

Published on Sep 2, 2019 Hunart©

"Hi Everyone!

Thanks to SoundTrade, the distributor of Behringer in Poland I`ve had a chance to check the new VC340 Vocoder. Due to the specific sound of vocoders I had to use some EQ but tried to keep the sound as natural as possible. All sounds were made by the synth or via microphone. I used a compressor to side chain and transposed down two tracks in Live. Beside this no external effects were used.

Feel free to ask any questions.



Behringer Pro-1 Demos

1. Behringer Pro-1 bassline
A quick and dirty test of the Behringer Pro-1 clone.

Starting with a thick sync-sound and then switching to paraphonic mode.
2. Behringer Pro-1 resonance bubbles
Making some bubbles with the self-resonating filter on the Pro-1. A touch of delay on the latter part, otherwise no effects.
3. Behringer Pro 1 / Behringer Model D comparison
In an attempt to see if there was any major differences between the two Behringer mono synths Pro-1 and Model D, I put them next to each other and recorded a little comparison video.

Even though I've tried to match them as well as I could, there's quite a clear difference in tone between them.
