Sequarallel Module with the Reflex LiveLoop Sampler!

Published on Sep 29, 2019 freshnelly

"At last I got around to connecting the Sequarallel's MIDI out to the Reflex LiveLoop's (w/Flash8 exp) MIDI control input. The results were not disappointing!
I used a demo sequence created a while back for the Flash-8 when it came out, but modified it to play MIDI drums and added 8 Loop Markers for the Seqarallel (Note#121).

What it does is records a few seconds of whatever audio is at the inputs by creating 10 slices (there can be up to 400!) then playing them and twisting them with PlayFX, granulizing, stuttering etc.
This is all from the Seqarallel which is running under the modular clock rate so it's all in sync.
I mixed the input with the MIDI percussion being played so when recording, the beats are always there at the start of slices, thus acting as a rhythmic beacon. This means any audio coming in will sound great! And it does :))

After recording it in, away it went. Jumping around the sequence was fun, but transposing produced really unpredictable stuff to happen as many of the Reflex's functions are note dependent (like PlayFX button, Record button etc) so that's probably a no-no.
Otherwise it was amazing.
Jumping to Loop 0 of course starts recording a new sample slice set."

Novation Summit Hybrid Synthesizer Overview

Published on Sep 29, 2019 Gear4music

"Novation's flagship 16-voice polyphonic synthesizer. The Novation Summit Hybrid Synthesizer is a versatile bi-timbral synth featuring 16-voices of polyphony with a 61-note keybed.

The Novation Summit is equally at home in the studio or live on stage. The core of the Summit Synthesizer is a trilogy of FPGA New Oxford Oscillators per voice. The versatile oscillators enable subtractive, wavetable and FM synthesis. It also features dual analog filters, inspired by the Oxford Synthesizer Company's OSCar.

The Summit features a wide range of controls including an analog filter, analog mixer and analog distortion. It also boasts integrated high-grade FX such as Reverb, Delay and Chorus.

The multi-timbral design means you can split and layer sounds for truly unprecedented sound design. Create everything from leads, arps and pads to soundbeds and beyond with Novation's more versatile synthesizer to date."

Published on Sep 29, 2019 mishpult

"Støv is the norwegian word for "dust". This is a dusty hip-hop pattern with the #elektron #digitakt, #bastl #thyme and #heat. There is a saw lfo from the Thyme which is assigned to the short delay parameter, resulting in a subtle glitchy background for the beat. The output is run through the Analog Heat with generous drive, low and high boost, some pseudo compressor settings and high-pass filter with resonance for a low-end enhancement."

newrAd - Mimeophon, Freak, VCV Rack

Published on Sep 29, 2019 Omri Cohen

"So I wanted to try something I saw in a video from Andrew Huang about the Mimeophon (link below). Marbles from Mutable Instruments is sequencing Rings, which is going through a stereo filter, Freak from Vult in this case, and from there to the Mimeophon. Stages is modulating the frequency of Freak and also a few parameters on Rings. Anyway, Rings into Mimeophon anyone?

Exploring The Cursus Iteritas Magnus

Published on Sep 29, 2019 John L Rice

"This is such a versatile oscillator and can produce simple pure tones to very rich complex ones! Its output is great for filter using subtractive synthesis techniques but I didn't use ANY filters in this video at all, just lots of modulation sources and reverb/delay effects.

Yamaha AN1x

via this auction

"There are 6 knobs for envelope attack, release, filter cutoff, resonance and 2 are assignable knobs. Two scene memories will remember the current state of the envelope and filters as set by the control knobs so they can instantly be recalled and you can use the Mod-wheel to morph from one scene into the other.
Scene Memory data is also stored with your synth patches. Built-in digital effects are great.

The Arpeggiator steals the show with 30 patterns suited for all genres as well as basic arpeg. patterns.

Plenty of memory (128 preset, 128 user) and MIDI control make the CS1x perfect for both live and studio use. Control the synth, arpeggiator and editing through MIDI control. The CS1x only has multitimbrality in which, when hooked up to a sequencer, MIDI channels 5-16 offer Yamaha XG synth sounds but MIDI channel 1 holds the CS1x's main sounds and effects."

Techno But All Sounds Are Pss380 - Korg Volca Sample & Yamaha PSS380 Techno Jam

Published on Sep 29, 2019 ChrisLody

"So what if you were to make a techno tune using nothing but sounds synthesized on a Yamaha PSS380, including the drums, sampled into a Volca Sample? These are the kind of questions that keep me awake at night, so that's what I did for this video.

I'm really quite fond of the Yamaha PSS380. It's a really gritty sounding bargain basement FM synth with just barely enough controls to produce the sounds you need. But good enough to get some great percussion sounds, bass and some damn weird stuff going when it's pushed in the right direction. I'll review it at some point I think.

I ran the whole thing through a pair of DIY flatline optical compressors just to fatten it all up a bit.

I decided to make a Volca Sample pack available of these sounds. You can load them in using Vosyr, Korg Audio Pocket or Caustic Editor for Volca Sample:"
