L'ascension du K2 avec The River

"Discovery of K2 Behringer via The River, the sound of K2 is injected into The River, so The Triko.The output of The River is injected directly into the Camera. 6HP Modules! Godspeed+, Squak Dirty, Airstreamer And Milky Way

Published on Oct 28, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"'s new series of 6hp modules makes it possible to construct a versatile and excellent-sounding Eurorack system with a ridiculously small footprint. In this video, we show some of the potential of the 2hp Power, Godspeed+, Squawk Dirty to Me, Airstreamer, and Milky Way alongside a Malekko Varigate 4+ and Korg Volca Kick.

Godspeed+ is an oscillator with built-in wave folder and self-modulation options, bringing some of the greatest sounds of the Furthrrrr Generator into a 6hp footprint. Squawk Dirty is a stereo digital filter with algorithms borrowed from the Grand Terminal. Airstreamer provides envelope generation, LFOs, and more, while the Milky Way offers voltage-controllable stereo effects, including delays, reverbs, and more.

All housed in a 4MS Pod case, this system proves that a small modular system is fully capable of huge sounds."

MFOS Music From Outer Space Sound Lab Ultimate

via this auction

"This Music From Outer Space Soundlab Ultimate synthesizer was hand made by a tech friend of mine a few years ago. It has seen light use in my recording studio. It sounds as good as any old Moog or ARP I've used and is very fun and flexible.

These kits are no longer available so this is a rare opportunity. This Synth also includes the MFOS Ultimate Expander which adds a whole other world of flexibility and sound.

Comes with several patch cables. External power supply is hard wired to synth for reliability."

Minilogue XD "laser harp" sound tutorial...

Published on Oct 28, 2019 hammondeggsmusic

"Without using any custom oscillators, you can generate a "laser harp" type sound with your minilogue XD...!

The settings are roughly (see video for details)
OSC1 Full amplitude, 2nd octave square wave at 50%
OSC2 1/3 amplitude, highest octave square wave at 25%
- OSC2 pitch also a fifth above (+700C)
Sync on ring off
EG no attack decay 700-800 or so, INT 17-18%
Filter cutoff ~600, maybe a little resonance
Use the LFO as a second EG, by selecting 1-SHOT mode, and use the sawtooth shape for an attack only sound.
LFO Rate 600, LFO int +300.
A chorus added (I used my "hera" chorus as it is somewhat similar sounding) and you should be done!

See video for more details..."

New Gotharman Zybraz Front Panel Layout

Some updates since this post. You can see it in the flesh here.

via Gotharman:

preliminary specs:

Zybraz preliminary specs
-24 note polyphonic
-64 programmable preset locations

-2 parts (lower and upper) with key split

Each part has:
-1 resonator oscillator with morphable waveform (sine to triangle to sawtooth to square to feedwave).
-A noise generator
-A filter (8 types)
-2 envelopes (1 ADSR, 1 Decay)
-2 LFO’s (1 for the filter and one for the rest)
-1 effects processor (8 types)

-9VDC in
-MIDI in and out
-Audio out

Not yet certain:
-Which effect types it will have –Delay, Roto Delay and Bit Crusher are certain.
-The box: The first prototype box really looks great from a distance, but when getting close, light scratches appear all over the surface. The company who made it, has promised to fix this issue, and send me a new prototype box, but this might be in a more matted black color.
This box is not cheap, so I will need at least 10 pre-orders, to keep this. If I get less than 10 pre-orders, or if the next prototype box is not as it should be, the final model will appear in another box type. And even if I get 10 pre-orders, it might only be the pre-ordered Zybra’s, that comes in this box style."

MOOG MINIMOOG + UNO DRUM // Studio Electronics MidiMoog // PURE ANALOG

Published on Oct 28, 2019 LESINDES

"This is another episode of PURE ANALOG here with VINTAGE synth Studio Electronics MidiMoog which is a 100% original MOOG MINIMOOG in a 19" housing without keyboard (no clone!) -- PURE ANALOG is a project to find out and show the qualities of analog synthesizers and eventually also hybrids. And exciting Question is also how contemporary synths like this lush GRP A-2 or EREBUS NYX compare to vintage legends like MINIMOOG or ARP ODYSSEY or ROLAND JUPITER 4 etc. So this piece will be played and performed with different synths in the future track by track recorded in DAW without any equing or otherwise processed in DAW, no add modulation, reverb, saturatio or other FX. Only a mastering compressor, EQ and Limiter is used on the sum. So what you hear is completely un-FX-ed material -- almost impossible to find these days!!!"
