Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with MAXIME INGRAND

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Maxime Ingrand is a guitarist and keyboards player in the French post-rock band Lost in Kiev and producer for the electronica project ARCHE. Lost in Kiev is a blend of epic and massive post-rock, driven by the energy of rock mixed with electronic sounds. Their first two albums, Motions and Nuit Noire (on Dunk! records) were both well-received by the press and audience at their live shows. Recently, the group released their new album Persona via Pelagic records. ARCHE is a solitary voyage that invites the listener to a forgotten universe at the convergence of an astral cinematographic ambiance laden with ascending melodies.

We chatted with Maxime on how he’s using the Mopho x4 in his music."

Novation Peak Presets by Synth4ever

via @WeAreNovation

"'I aim to create #melodic sounds that are pleasing to the ear, which take the listener on a deep emotional journey through electronic music.' -

You can find the presets on Novation's website here.

You can find demos of the Peak by synth4ever here, and additional posts featuring synth4ever here.

"Synth4ever is a Canadian ambient artist, sound designer and electronic musician who performs live ambient electronica, synth demos and patch design via his popular YouTube channel.

With influences ranging from Isao Tomita, Autechre, Boards of Canada, Vangelis, Ulrich Schnauss and more, Synth4ever channels his love for ambient chillout music into this diverse sound bank for the Novation Peak and Summit.

This ambient pack features numerous spacey pads, lush soundscapes, grainy textures, melodic arps, cutting leads, motion loops and experimental SFX. Each patch also has tasteful aftertouch, animate and modwheel assignments to encourage further sonic exploration by the musician.

In creating these patches, Synth4ever's goal was to push Peak’s hardware into new sonic territory by leveraging new features in the v1.2 firmware update. As a result, you will find many examples of modulated effects as an integral part of his patch design, and extensive use of the mod matrix to create vast morphing soundscapes.

In his own words, he says: “I aim to create melodic sounds that are pleasing to the ear, which take the listener on a deep emotional journey through electronic music”. These varied ambient-style patches are a result of this vision and showcase Synth4ever’s creative approach to sound design."

Luke Neptune's 80s vs 90s soundset for Synthmaster One.

Published on Sep 30, 2019 Luke Neptune

"This soundset is FREE with the latest version of Synthmaster One!

Those of you that know me know i'm more of a hardware guy.
However every now and again a plug in comes along that really blows me away. Synthmaster One most definitely falls into that category!

For this soundset the guys at KV331 Audio sampled my OB-6 and Prophet 6 with great care and detail. They then sent me an updated version of Synthmaster One containing the samples and i was extremely impressed with how well they sounded. It really did sound like i was playing my OB-6/P6.
I used these samples to create many of the sounds in this set, including some of my signature patches that you may have heard in my previous OB-6 and P6 soundsets. This may be music to the ears of those of you who like my OB6 and P6 soundsets but can't use them as you don't own those synths.

One thing i really enjoyed whilst making this soundset was having the ability to mix analog style oscillators with FM or Wavetables style oscillators. To be able to create sounds that sound like the love child of a DX7 & Juno 60 is so exciting and incredibly inspiring to me. This feature has enabled me to create certain sounds within this soundset that i simply couldn't do with my hardware.

As mentioned above this soundset is free with the latest version of Synthmaster One so if you haven't yet updated, do so.
If you don't yet own a copy of Synthmaster One, get it!

Thanks LN x"

"Trill touch sensors are the perfect tools for building synthesisers and electronic musical instruments. In this video we demo a Eurorack synthesiser that we created with Trill and the DIY module Pepper. The module is used to control a Moog Mother 32 and a Plankton Electronics ANTS! See our blog post for more details:

Trill is a new family of touch sensors launched on Kickstarter on 16th September 2019. Brought to you by Bela, Trill sensors use capacitive sensing to precisely track finger movements making it quick and easy to create beautifully responsive touch interfaces. Trill sensors are designed to make capacitive touch sensing easy to integrate into music, art and interactive projects."

"Keyboard function is not working properly, light stays on and machine thinks a key is constantly being pressed, gate stays open."

Hmm... If this is a j-wire version it could be one of the wires is simply bent up and making constant contact. I once picked up a Pro One from Guitar Center for $125 as faulty for this reason. I opened it up, bent the j-wire back and it all was good. No idea if that is the problem with this one. The same SN was listed back in 2016 as a j-wire model.

Vintage Elektron jam w/ Octatrack MkII, Monomachine MkII, Machinedrum MkII

Published on Sep 30, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by the frantic energy of chasing deadlines. It's been a ton of fun to pair up these older Elektron devices, as it shows how each is complementary to the others. The Monomachine and Machinedrum also evoke a certain sound of music for me, from the mid-aughts to early 20-teens. It's also a good reminder that despite the new veneer, the Octatrack is showing its age (in mostly a good way).

Elektron Octatrack MkII — Five samples (four string parts, one high ambience), effects for Monomachine and Machinedrum, master effects and scenes
Elektron Monomachine SFX-60 UW MkII — SID arp, SID bass, high-pass chords, drum finale
Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 MkII — Drums

Written and performed within a 48-hour period, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master. Cello sample courtesy of Ian T. Lyckland."

Befaco BF-22 Sallen Key Eurorack Synth Filter Demo - Watch Your Ears - Analog MS 20 style weirdness

Published on Sep 30, 2019 Surface Noises

"This is a very rough demonstration of the sound capabilities of this dirty and rather lovely filter, which is inspired by the MS-20. There are five parts of this video, which are each basic sketches.

The key point about this filter is that it has a very pronounced resonance and high audio input levels. So at low audio input, you need to make sure the resonance is also low otherwise it wails, whereas at high gain you get a really cool distortion but need to put the resonance high.

It's a great filter - but one which needs to be treated with care.

Also: my editing is rubbish. This video is one of my first efforts, so it's ropey and amateurish. But less ropey and amateurish than the last effort! Gotta keep learning...."
