The Roads Are Not What They Seem [Novation Circuit & Arturia Microfreak]

Published on Oct 6, 2019 Flak Cannon

"A track made with Novation Circuit & Arturia Microfreak. Microfreak is on the pad duty, Circuit does the sequencing and a pluck sound. The sound has been further processed with Valhalla Shimmer & Valhalla Delay."


Published on Oct 6, 2019 sonicstate

"We got a look at the massive new synthesizer from Analogue Solutions. It’s not for everyone, being a cool £25, but look at it.. it’s inspired by the massive EMS Synthi 100. And we’re glad it’s I the world."

Odessey vs Bodyssey

Published on Oct 6, 2019 No Nag Recordings

"Comparing The Original ARP Odyssey against the Behringer Odyssey.
The Bodyssey is a great copy of the old ARP with nice new features such as a sequencer/arpeggiator, Midi/CV, FX, 3 legacy filters VCA Drive and some more. It sounds fenomenal, even a bit beefier than the original. Keys feel ok, a bit sluggish. but better then the ARPs."

Warldorf KB37 & AJH Minimoog Eurorack Modular Synth

via this auction

"This particular configuration has been modelled on the classic Minimoog, carrying three crystal clear VCO’s, plus portamento, a ladder filter, ring modulator with sub bass mixer, two contour generators and a discrete cascaded VCA module. All modules are interchangeable so you can build on this and configure your own sound without limits.

The keyboard is a Waldorf kb37 and the action on the keys is firm and springy. The kb37 carries it’s own in-built pitch, bend module; an arpeggiator clock, CV gates and is a very solid piece of kit. Nothing plastic about this it is well made and a real, serious piece of musical equipment.

This thing is a truly awesome synth. Sad to see it go. Modules are not for sale as separates, so please don’t ask.

AJH Synth Modules

3 x VCO
1 x Transistor Ladder Filter
1 x Contour Generator (2 generators)
1 x Ring Modulator (inc sub bass mixer)

Synth Stuff Ep. 61 - ASM Hydrasynth

Published on Oct 6, 2019 tritonrecordings

"From seemingly out of nowhere comes the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth. What a beast. I sense an increase in appreciation for digital sounds as of late and that's awesome. While this can do really great analog imitations, I really get a Synclavier/PPG/ESQ-1/DX7 vibe from this and it's quite incredible. The built quality is impressive as well. While it is more than capable of leads and crunchy basses, I feel it really excels at morphing pads and textures and that's what I focused on here."

Roland SH-1 & Korg SQ-1 'Old School, Berlin School, My School...'

Published on Oct 6, 2019 DreamsOfWires

"A Roland SH-1 from 1978 performing 70's-style step sequencer duties (via a Korg SQ-1), accompanied by 2 subtle drone sounds also generated on this rather cool old analog synth. This is a work-in -progress for a later Bandcamp release.

Sincere thanks to all of you who have bought the latest, or any of my albums recently - it helps me to afford to continue what I'm doing, and it's greatly appreciated.

Some patch notes:

- The Neutron is being sequenced by the BeatStep Pro and is going through Freak and the Mimeophon.
- A few FM-OPs in VCV Rack are being sequenced and sent into the Morphagene and then being played back in reverse.
- A sample from a coffee shop is being played in VCV Rack and going through Clouds.
- Another voice from VCv Rack is going through another hardware filter from Vult.
- The MiniBrute 2s is in charge of the bass sequence and is going through Chronoblob2 in VCV Rack

I recently watched Gerald perform a full 4 hour set in Manchester, so to see him break down how the magic happens, was a real privilege."

2019/10 - Pearl SC-40 ... 512 sounds

Published on Oct 6, 2019 Stereoping

"A quick run through all the 256 sounds of my Pearl SC-40. I used the trigger inputs instead of midi because the midi-triggernote is saved in each sound (!) and they are completely different throughout the kits.
Then i loaded the 4 factory preset banks and recorded these 4 banks containing another 256 sounds. Short break between the bank-switching for not missing a sound.

Between the 2 recordings there is a part showing how to load the audiofile through the Cassette input: start the audio, then press ENTRY on the CASSETTE/LOAD page. Pressing ENTRY before the audio is started will result in "Error 10 - level to low" (display shows: E-10) interrupting the LOAD procedure."

Yamaha Portasound PS-1 keyboard demo - "Lens Flare"

Published on Oct 6, 2019 Alfonse

"Yamaha Portasound PS-1 keyboard (1980)

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the PS-1 and run through various single effects pedals (TC Electronic Sub Up octaver for bass notes and for a floaty lead part, the very synth-friendly Yamaha SDS CH-10MII chorus pedal, and the Vestax DDX vintage digital delay). Parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, and reverb were added as required. Individual drum hits were sampled from slowed-down rhythms and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the PS-1 itself.

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from retro classic keyboards together with current production tools. One of the first three portable keyboards that Yamaha produced for the home market in 1980, the PS-1 was the most compact, with only 4 voices and 4 rhythms to work with.

Klangbau Köln Eurorack - Sunday Ambient Noise Jam #TTNM

Published on Oct 6, 2019 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Patching my new cables from Luigi's Modular Supply into my Klangbau Köln Eurorack. MORE INFO BELOW :)


While it has been a while since I patched my Klangbau Köln Eurorack synthesizer, I always enjoy playing some ambient drone/noise music with it. In this jam I'm triggering a sample played on Tom Whitwell's Radio Music through the Twin Peak Filter, while Rob Hordijk's Benjolin is making some liquid filter ping sounds as well, while also providing a modulated master clock and Rungler CV. The Wavetable DCO, the XR-VCO and the qVCF are acting as oscillators, going through a Ring Mod, Waveshaper and Tube VCA. There's a bunch of modulation coming from the Envelope, the Joystick, the Closed-Loop Sample & Hold and the digital and analog Logisitc Equation modules."

Korg SB-100 Synthe-Bass SN 770097

via this auction

"The Korg SB-100 Synthe-Bass, released in 1975, is a Japanese-made analog monophonic synthesizer that offers fat, warm vintage synth tones that evoke the sounds that defined a generation of electronic music. It has been used by artists such as the B-52s, Soft Cell, and more. The SB-100 has one analog oscillator (Pulse, Saw Up, Square, Triangle) with controls for an attack/decay envelope and a low-pass filter. As expected from a “Synthe-Bass”, the SB-100 is known in particular for its ultra-fat and punchy bass tones. The comparatively small form factor allows this synthesizer to travel well, and its simple, tactile control panel will serve you well in live performance situations. If you're looking for the real deal when it comes to iconic 70s analog synth sounds, look no further!

This synth is in very good condition, showing some natural signs of age, including minor scuffs and some coloration of the keys from aging (please see photos). It has been tested by our professional technician and is working perfectly. The sound is exceptional."
