045//Extraterrestrials - Moog Mother 32 & URA self-generating music

Published on Oct 4, 2019 Alastair Wilson

"A semi-self-generating patch using a Moog Mother 32 and an Ultra Random Analog module sent through a Eventide Space hall reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on Reverse setting.

Finally, I have a dedicated random source! It's a bit of a game-changer when your music is based on random modulation... For this patch I went a bit overboard and simply connected every output of the URA to something on the M32, and 045//Extraterrestrials is the result - not quite melodic, not quite atonal, but something in between.

The sounds present in this patch are the M32 square wave providing tuned notes, clicks from a sub-audio LFO patched into the Ext Audio input, and odd tones from the filter resonance being driven into self-oscillation.
The M32 is triggered by random gates, which also clock one of the URA's sample & hold circuits. The filter cutoff and resonance, mix between the oscillator and a square LFO, LFO rate, and some Eventide Space parameters are all randomly modulated (the Space modulated directly from the URA). The M32 envelope is a very short pluck, and the LFO triangle wave is patched to the VCA CV input, providing wavering, uncertain volume modulation.
One channel of Maths is providing a constant voltage offset for one of the inputs of the URA, but the effect is subtle at best, and so this isn't necessary - the patch can be recreated without any noticeable difference by omitting it.

If you want to recreate this patch, you can find it here:"

Video Description:

"Un día me encontré con esta obra casualmente se mimetizaba con el sonido ambiente, fue en una casa de playa , por lo que no era fácil oír por el intenso sonido del mar, estaba atenta, quería escuchar que era lo que realmente sonaba, y no lo encontraba, hasta que aparecen fantasmagóricamente las voces soprano, despacio, atrás de todo, incorporándose poco a poco sutilmente la encuentro reproduciéndose en un lector de cd , aparece mi amigo Gerardo Figueroa, y me presenta a Eliane Radigue, máxima exponente de la música electrónica desde los años en que compartía con Pierre Schaeffer. y Henry en los años 60.............. nunca mas pude encontrar este disco, hasta hoy....por eso lo comparto. tiene la simpleza y sutileza de mezclar los sonidos puros y perderse infinitamente en las islas resonantes..."


"One day I found this work coincidentally blending in with the ambient sound, it was in a beach house, so it was not easy to hear from the intense sound of the sea, I was attentive, I wanted to hear what it really sounded like, and I could not find it, until the soprano voices appear spookily, slowly, behind everything, gradually incorporating the encounter reproducing in a CD player, my friend Gerardo Figueroa appears, and introduces me to Eliane Radigue, the greatest exponent of music electronic since the years I shared with Pierre Schaeffer. and Henry in the 60s .............. I could never find this record, until today ... that's why I share it. the simplicity and subtlety of mixing pure sounds and getting lost infinitely in the resonant islands ... "

serge krell basic

Published on Oct 4, 2019 Todd Barton

"I've had many inquires from patrons about having some Serge content . . . yay! Originally pre-released to patrons I'm now going public :-) we go: This is the most simple, basic, no-frills Krell patch on the Serge system that I can devise. Hopefully it will serve as a catalyst for your creativity and imagination to take it deeper, morph it, modulate it and incorporate it with other modules, patches and sonic equations.

Of course, it can be ported over the eurorack. The usual suspects would be in a Makenoise system SSG to Wogglebug, DUSG to Maths, NTO to DPO and VCA to Optomix. Enjoy!"

Critter & Guitari - Distributor Rec for Organelle

Published on Oct 4, 2019 Critter & Guitari

"Record samples, slice them up on the fly, and weave them across time with other sample slices all while arpeggiating and looping them!

Distributor Rec is an improvement of the original Distributor patch. This patch has three main functions: 1. Records an audio sample to each key; 2. Slices up those samples and arpeggiates them; 3. Interweaves slices from one sample with other sample slices as you play keyboard (or the sequencer).

Oberheim Matrix 1000

via this auction

"Since the original battery is dead by now (it is soldered in, and so I could not easily replace it myself), the User patches from 000 to 199 have no patches loaded. You would have to replace the CR2032 battery to get the User patch locations to hold any patches you copy or load to that range after the unit is powered off. This should be done by an experienced service technician, or a capable hobbyist. I don't recommend doing this yourself if you are not experienced with electronic board soldering, since you don't want to take a chance on damaging the circuits. There are some internet postings showing a recommended installation of a new battery holder, one that will allow easy changes of the battery in the future.

The ROM chip in this unit is the last Oberheim factory version 1.11. Hobbyists will probably want to pull that chip and replace it with the 1.16 or 1.20 versions that you can find for sale here on Reverb. But the updates in these new ROM versions are primarily for improving the unit's real-time response to certain external sysex change requests. They do not affect the basic operation of the unit during live playing, as far as I know."

"This is played by making contact with the two plates. Pitch is controlled by the resistance of the player?s skin. The stronger the touch, the less resistance and higher the pitch. The lighter the touch, the more resistance and lower the pitch.

Use the included alligator clip cable to experiment with attaching any conductive material to the contact plates. Metals, liquids, graphite pencil or other people work well.

There is also a filter and volume control. It has a mono 1/4? output and is powered by either an included 9V battery or 9V DC Center-Negative Power supply."

Corsynth C112 - Patch Idea - VC Panning

Published on Oct 4, 2019 Corsynth

"Thanks to the attenuverter and the inverter function the C112 can be used to create a voltage controlled panning effect.

Patch description

For this patch we use a triangle wave from a LFO patched to the attenuverter input. The output is internally connected to the inverter input. So now we have two triangle waves,one inverted and one normal.

Each triangle wave is patched to the CV input of a VCA. Both VCAs have the same audio input.One of the VCAs is our L output and the other the R output. For a real panning effect, not just jumping from L to R, we need to add a bit of initial gain to the VCAs.

The amount of panning can be controlled with the attenuverter level.

In this patch we are using another LFO to control the frequency of the first LFO to create an interesting panning effect."

Korg DSS-1 - The Ultimate Sampling Synthesizer | Tutorial - Demo - Workflow

Published on Oct 4, 2019

Track video embedded further below.

"The track used to demonstrate the DSS-1 in the beginning can be downloaded for free here:

00:00 Intro and demo track
03:38 Demo of sound capability
14:14 Sound, Sampling, Waveforms, Multisound tutorial ++

The Korg DSS-1 sampling synthesizer, released in 1986 is a truly impressive piece of kit.
Sampling, Waveforms you can draw yourself and harmonic waveform synthesis (additive synthesis) can all be used as basis for oscillators.
It has a fully analog audio path, resonant VCF, dedicated 6-stage envelopes for both the VCF and VCA, and 2 sine wave LFOs, oscillator sync, and an advanced unison mode.
On top of that you have two digital delays that can be used for a variety of effects, either in serial or parallel,
For a fraction of the price the DSS-1 rivaled the Fairlight system.

Unfortunatley, the operating system and workflow is arcane and borderline insanity.
I've tried to condens this tutorial down to something usable and understandable so you can use this gem with your own sounds and not just use it as a rompler.
For demonstration and tutorial purposes, the samples and sounds I make to show you how it operates are not meant to sound very good. Just saying.. ;-) "

"Utter synth indulgence :) I imagine this is the first time these synths have been heard together. The included is a six-mono version of the track I uploaded last week. Following the voices as per the video should be easy enough, but ordered highest-lowest, they are:

Model D (I've moved this part down an octave from the score; in this arrangement this octave works better)
V '14
Arp Oddy

Here's an HQ Soundcloud link:

PS if anyone wants the MIDI files for this, I'm happy to sell them: £25 for all six individual files, plus a composite file (velocities have been edited in the composite file; in the individual files, all velocities are a straight 127). Just send me a message via paypal ( and i'll ping off an invoice.

Anyone looking for the score, £20 seems fair. Again, just message me via paypal.

New FREE Korg Minilogue Patch Packs! "Lo-Fi Textures" & "Twopointohone"

Published on Oct 3, 2019 Oscillator Sink

"Details on the patch pack can be found on Korg's website:

The Minilogue can be a lot of things, but when I first laid hands on it I was immediately drawn to the sounds I was finding that were a little less than pristine. Sounds that were a little dirty, a little dark, sometimes crunchy, noisy or wobbly - but the character of the synth always shone through and made me feel warm and fuzzy as I explored them. I decided to lean into this idea and seek out sounds where it was the imperfections that gave them their appeal; that’s where the Lo-Fi Textures Patch Pack comes from.

These 50 new patches draw inspiration from the wow and flutter of an old reel-to-reel, worn-out VHSes, the spaces between radio stations and circuits operating beyond their original purposes: unstable, fragile, nostalgic and warm."
