Roland VP-9000 Variphrase Sampler - Stewie Mom Scene Sample Over Mario Underwater Music

Published on Oct 14, 2019 MrCaliforniaD

"This is an example of the capabilities of this unique sample.

The sampler is fed by this classic Family Guy scene where Stewie is annoyingly calling his mom.

The sampler can automatically split the words of a sentence and jump to the next word when a new key is pressed.

On top of that, the sample time is preserved regardless of the pitch of the note being generated."

'Winter' Peak Ambient Loop (Peak, Rainmaker, Mimeophon, DittoX4)

Published on Oct 14, 2019 State Azure

"I was creating a few Morphagene reels, improvising with the Peak into the looper and came up with this little loop that turned out to be quite a nice track by itself, so I decided to share it.

Keystep to Peak. Peak goes into the DittoX4 looper, then into the 7U case to Rainmaker for some extra texture. Onto Mimeophon for the ping-pong delay and a little wow/flutter with the micro-pitch input modulated. Finally into Morphagene for recording. All sounds from Novation Peak.

Recorded direct to DAW."

Testing quick Techno Analog Clap Feat Vermona Drm1 Mk3 eventide H9 and Yamaha E1010 delay

Published on Oct 14, 2019 Sound Provider

"Setting a Clap:

For the mix of one of the future Techno release of La Fraicheur and Leonard de Leonard project, Leonard is recording a layer of Vermona Drm1Mk3 clap through Eventide H9 reverb and old yamaha E1010 Analog Delay (we love to clip this machine) via gs3000 Allen and Heath Console.

For final version We ll put little less decay on the reverb and little longer delay on the E1010, we will also fine tune result with additional EQ and compressor .

Sorry also for the not crazy record quality , I use a Roland Go mixer pro directly from the studio out of the console."

One more with the Hihat:

Quick Techno Hihat mix feat Eventide H9 Reverb Yamaha E1010 Delay & Ibanez UE400 Disto & Phaser

"In this video Leonard de Leonard is working on a track for his duo with La Fraicheur .

He try to boost ,add character and dimension to a shy Hihat,for this he add hall reverb with my eventide h9, Delay with the yamaha E1010 and distortion +Phaser with ibanez UE400 .

Don t be afraid with noise and distortion when you use this kind of old analog effects,just be careful to don t use it on all your part."

Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with BETAMAXX

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

"Betamaxx is an 80’s synth revival project by Nick Morey, hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania U.S.A. The project was formed in mid-2012 with the release of the Lost Formats LP in September of that year. The name “Betamaxx” was contrived from Sony’s “Betamax” video player from the mid-80’s. Betamaxx’s sound is inspired and created with analog and digital synths from the 80’s and today. They include Roland’s Juno-60, Sequential’s Prophet-6, and Korg’s M1 workstation. Combining these sounds with a soundtrack inspiration in mind, Betamaxx has created a neo retro-future sound similar to the likes of John Hughes and John Carpenter. He has been featured on such works as the Kung Fury official soundtrack, and the Amazon prime series Red Oaks. His most notable remix was Tangerine Dream’s “Love on a Real Train” from the Risky Business soundtrack.

We chatted with Nick on how he’s using the Prophet-6 in his music."

Plankton Nutone dual tube VCA 2/2: in use (LMS EE)

Published on Oct 14, 2019 Learning Modular

"The Plankton Nutone is a dual tube VCA based on the Korg Nutube: compact fluorescent displays re-engineered to act as micro vacuum triode tubes. In this movie, I demonstrate using it as a VCA, as a saturator, as the two put together, and show how to add performance control to the depth of saturation:

00:00 overview
00:15 initial patch
00:53 using as a VCA
02:04 VCA with saturation on peaks
03:25 using as a saturator
04:56 demo
07:14 feedback
09:20 conclusion

The other movie [posted here] includes an extended no-talking demo of the Nutone, and studies how it changes the incoming waveform at different levels of drive.

Both movies are also part of the Learning Modular Eurorack Expansion course ( Learning Modular Patreon supporters at the +5v level and above ( also have access to supplemental posts for both movies in this series."

Waldorf Kyra - Test 2

Cave Way Kyra videos

"Do you like fresh fish?
It's just fine at Finney's Diner.
Finney also has some fresher fish
that's fresher and much finer.
But his best fish is his freshest fish and Finney says with pride,
"The finest fish at Finney's
is my freshest fish, French-fried!"

SO . . .
don't order the fresh
or the fresher fish.
At Finney's, if you're wise,
you'll say,
"Fetch me the finest
French-fried freshest
fish that Finney fries!"

Also this is the antithesis of test 1."

I have tested it with several disks, and I will say that sometimes it read "de" (disk error) on the display...and other times functioned just fine & read "21" (good to go) on the display. It is possible that the floppy drive is failing (replacements are available out there), needs to be cleaned, or that it's the cheap brand Nashuatec 3.5" "backup" copy disks that I was using. Original Ensoniq software floppy disks can still be obtained on eBay. Includes the power cord."

Yamahasynth's Nate Tschetter took us through it."
