Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolving Pads

Published on Nov 7, 2019 synthlegends

"Demo of evolving Pad sounds from the DSI Poly Evolver Keyboard polychained with the Poly Evolver Rack, so it has 8 voices.

I programmed a set of around 60 Pads, some from scratch, some from presets and also some from third party banks.

The Evolver series are known to be harsh sounding. The Curtis Filter Chips are quite aggressive, but you can achieve very warm tones and the instrument is capable for evolving pads thanks of the two LP Filter you can set individually in the stereo field.

Also with the 3 tap delay you can program chorus effects and take usage of the 4 LFO plus the third envelope and the step sequencer.

Even the digital OSC can sound very warm, when you use in a subtle way the Ring Modulator or FM effect.

The Synthesizer has a very big dynamic range, so the sounds are so dynamic in this video, that the basic volume is quit low. Also I took often usage of hard panned voices in the stereo field, so the sounds are really very much moving/evolving.

I didn't use any mastering, addional effects or euqalizer in this video. Everything is recorded life from the two synthesizers out from the PER mixer with two channels directly to the audio interface.

Thanks for watching and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me in the comments below. Cheers."

Jean Michel Jarre launches a Music App EōN on the Web Summit

Published on Nov 7, 2019 servicesmobiles

"Jean Michel Jarre unveils infinite music app EōN - iOS app produces infinite, ever-evolving music composed by Jarre

"EōN produces infinite, ever evolutive music, abundant in variations, composed by electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, accompanied by a constant progression of organic visuals.

Once you launch the EōN app, you can listen and watch a new infinite musical experience which has been designed to be absolutely unique for each listener, and always different each time you launch the app.

You can take this journey for as long as you want, the only limit is your device's battery!

« EON » is an ancient Greek God associated with Time & Eternity.

The « time » represented by EON is infinite and unbounded in the sense of « ages » and « forever ».

In cosmology, geology or astronomy, EON is often used in reference to a period of a billion years…

I named this project EōN, as it best defines exactly what it is – an infinite musical and visual creation, which offers each individual a unique experience on its primary support as an App: on each device, and on each launch of the EōN App, you will hear and see a unique ever-evolving orchestration of the music & the visuals. EōN is a never ending, never repetitive, organic art-piece that will live & grow forever in everyone’s own singular space-time continuum, at the tip of their finger.

Personally, I truly feel that EōN is probably one of my most exciting creative projects since Oxygene. I always wanted to create a music specific for each listener and which could constantly evolve. Here it is. EōN is conceived & composed for your own infinite journey.

I had a very clear idea of the organic, living visuals I wanted to accompany my music creation, and I was very lucky to have spent some time in Tokyo at Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc. (Sony CSL) where I found Alexis André and his singular visual world. Sony CSL with Alexis have conceived and developed an algorithm generating the endless flow of ever-evolving graphics, which like the music is never ending, nor repetitive.

The algorithm and audio engine that orchestrates the music of the EōN App have been engineered by Alexis Zbik & Vianney Apreleff from BLEASS after we defined the rules of the system together.

Ben Minnotte – Telesound 13 (Moog/Realistic Concertmate MG-1)

Published on Nov 6, 2019 OddityArchive

"The first new piece of music I've written and released since 2012. As a challenge to myself, I tasked myself with creating a song using nothing but my old Moog/Realistic Concertmate MG-1 synthesizer--which is a REAL challenge given that I'm not a synth geek and my keyboard skills are dodgy at best. It also had to sound like something that could've been made and released around the time the synth was made (circa 1982). As such, effects are used sparingly and are confined to the basics (read: EQ, reverb & compression).

Written as part of my ongoing attempts at creating some new, original incidental music for Oddity Archive.

NOTE: Just in case you couldn't tell, the synth pics shown are NOT representative of the patches used.
